lyrics

I had a talk with my friend
Bout her trip to the new store

Miles of white lights shine
They divert you for a while
Powdered whey and neon wine
Be your sister, in my style

When you had crashed and burn
When you had won
When you had credit cards
You had mirrors

I don’t want to pry into your life
Or the roads you’ve traveled
Darlin’ won’t you ride with me
to the retail paradise

I know it sounds strange I wanted (I had a talk with my friend)
Everything I win I pawn it (Bout her trip to the new store)

Wanna buy myself a fiction
Wanna make a connection
Old patterns of consumption
Meet me at every junction
Paralyze me
Paralyze me

I need a light... for her...

Was it a nightmare
Please alight
Learn to roam
Turn to stone
