Envy on the Coast

"Southern Comfort"

[Doctor:] "But you're not being rational, Miss Tyler. Now you know you can't expect to live any kind of a life among normal people."

[Miss Tyler:] "I could try. I could wear a mask or this bandage. I wouldn't bother anybody. I'd just go my own way. I'd get a job, any job. Who are you people anyway? What is this State? Who makes all these rules and conditions and statutes that people who are different have to stay away from the people who are normal? The State isn't God, Doctor."

[Doctor:] "Miss Tyler, please."

[Miss Tyler:] "THE STATE IS NOT GOD!"


[Verse 1]
I don't bathe in the flesh like the American way
But I've savored the breath of American ladies
Another bee on the petals of a flower choked in the weeds
A mother lied when she said she knows of real beauty

[Doctor:] What is the dimensional difference between beauty and something repellent?

[Chorus]
If you swallow the bait
With a bottle of wine
You can live like a queen
In the open wound of a pretty smile

[Verse 2]
I ate for hours and hours and hours and I'm still hungry
I filled the body with gasoline and let you ignite me
I only wish I had a match for every baby girl on earth
Save them from drowning in their mothers milk after birth

[Miss Tyler:] "You mean imprisoned, don't you doctor!
You're talking about a ghetto aren't you
A ghetto designed for freaks!"


[Chorus]
If you swallow the bait
With a bottle of wine
You can live like a queen
In the open wound of a pretty smile

[Bridge]
You don't sleep in your skin because it makes you fill cheap
So you hang it next to your bed and hope your bones will still keep

[Chorus - Reprise]
If you swallow the bait
With a bottle of wine
If you swallow the bait
With a bottle of wine
