dangerous woman up to a point lyrics – destroyer

a dangerous woman up to a point once said –
“as per your wishes, i left you for dead.
i left england to the english.”

is it always one thing or the other with you?
“forgive them, my lord, they know not what they do!”
“hey, your friends are f*cked, in so far, as your friends are an ancient
beast bronzed in tar!”

have i told you lately that i love you?
did i fail to mention there’s a sword hanging above you?

“those who love zeppelin will soon betray floyd.”
i cast off these couplets in honor of the void.
i was here to stay.
i would weather the storm.
i pictured heaven on earth made of clay as your form dictated…

i went down to the garden with the n*blest of intentions.
i felt the need to be brief.
i stuck a rose between my teeth and had a laugh.

the sun sets at the speed of light, so i thought i also might leave this
port of woe on tall ships made of snow invading the sun.

a dangerous woman up to a point once said –
“i’ve never read ‘so-and-so, so why mention him here, in this square
where culprits axe me, my dear.
tried to enjoy myself at the society ball, really i did.
froze on union street, it was springtime, i was just a kid lost in a map
of the stars others called ‘your eyes.’
it was a trap!
it was a good time!
it was hard to realize!…

i can’t win.
i can’t even walk.
baby, you should talk.
baby, you should hear what you’re saying.
they said – “don’t look back!” but i looked back.
it was a bore.
it was a f*cking horror.
it was – well, honey, you know quite well what you are…

a dangerous woman up to a point once said –
“people come, and people go, and people lie nameless in the snow…”
