lyrics

Taking off my clothes, I'm Eve in the light of a naked bulb and the
Rotted flooring sinks down before I step, gingerly, into the tub
Looking at the ceiling, thinking the galaxies of peeling paint and plaster
Are something I would photograph -
A beautiful disaster

Water runs down in rivers, it forms beads across my skin
And the steam courses down in droplets, the dirty plaster drinks it in
My own hands can never wash me clean
of every thought I've tried to master
You are something I would photograph
You beautiful disaster

And you pull on me just enough
To make me crack-
You pull on me just enough
To make my resolve go slack

If I tackle every angle and I still can't turn 360 degrees
I'm not opposed to every Persian flaw between you and me
So I study what your poverty points to I
Look for a larger than life kind of voice
If revelation is a riddle then truth and beauty is
My educated choice
My educated choice

And you pull on me just enough
To make me crack-
You pull on me just enough
To make my resolve go slack

Like a train wreck, or a famine
Like the thought of a morning after
You are something that I'll remember
Like a beautiful disaster

Oh ya, you don't care at all
You don't care at all
You don't care
At all.
