Lyrics

Can't you hear those cavalry drums
Hijacking your equilibrium
Midnight hags in the mausoleum
Where the pixilated doctors moan
Carnivores in the Kowloon night
Breathing freon by the candlelight
Coquette bitch slap you're so polite
Till you thank them for the tea and sympathy

(chorus)
I want to defy the logic of all sex laws
Let the handcuffs slip off your wrists
I'll let you be my chaperone at the halfway home
I'm a full grown man but I'm not afraid to cry

Neptune's lips taste like fermented wine
Perfumed blokes on the Ginza line
Running buck wild like a concubine
Whose mother never held her hand
Brief encounters in Mercedes Benz
Wearing hepatitis contact lens
Bed and breakfast getaway weekends
With Sports Illustrated moms

repeat chorus
interlude
repeat chorus
