Neurotic women in their big house
Make the perfect unfaithful spouse
Quiet and cunning like a little mouse
You wonder how she tore her blouse,
Same old story with a certain twist
Cruise ship's taking water and starting to list
It's all over thanks to her secret tryst
One more broken heart bleeding in the mist,
You told yourself you knew better than this
No more need for another flawed princess
The false illusion of faithful bliss
Can't you hear that poisoned serpent hiss?
Set adrift in a poison sea of love
There's no clear perspective from above
Just stories of her life's push and shove
It won't last long with this wounded dove,
That's why I leave this trail of blood
The sacred cow just chews her cud
Then there's that collapse and a thud
But the silver bullet was just a dud,
Love will wound you and you'll ask for more
The pain matters little when she's at the door
First you bleed than your spirit soars
This cruel sorceress that you so adore,
Is this really all there is?
Who was she before becomes the quiz
Was her name Jenny or was it Liz?
Would you like her hair with a little more frizz?
The self defeating lady's man
Struck down by the insanity of his own hand
A foreign corpse in his own land
A woman's heart is but shifting sand.
