lyrics

i'm red rocks and white water
my father's only daughter
i've been to church and i've been to jail
both walls were white sanctuary and cell

and is one heaven if the other's hell
am i permanently in purgatory and if so, how can i tell

now i'm living in gay paris
and there's a lot of nice people and a lot of nice things to see
what about those two men who i watch fall asleep
on my street with their hands on empty bottles of whisky

are we in heaven, are we in hell
are we permanently in purgatory and if so, how can we tell

she's a fountain spilling over
extravagant show-goer
hanging out with trains blowing cigarette smoke
trying hard not to choke, you're a joke, you're a joke, you're a joke.

sorry boy but you've been had,
she's a scab, she's a scab, she's a scab
and the more attention you pay to the irritation
the more she's bound to come back

and she is heaven and she is hell
and i'm permanently in purgatory and she is,
she's how i tell
