Track Name: Little Belle
little belle
do their prayers keep you company?
little belle
was that you making noise
at all the boys coming then going
down on first street?

little belle
guardian angel
smile
watching over the golden child

safe in the arms of passed relations
little belle
we'll join you soon
it won't be long
when time's measured in oblivion

little belle
guardian angel
smile
watching over the golden child
won't you smile?
watching over the golden child

now I never knew you
neither did he - my future boyfriend
I never knew he existed
til kitten faxed me his picture
was that your influence?
was that your spell?
aw aw aw...

little belle
baby doll kisses sweet
little belle
will you watch over me
the next time in NYC when
I go down on Christopher Street?

little belle
guardian angel
smile
watching over the golden child
aw aw aw
smile
watching over the golden child
won't you smile?
Track Name: The Crack In Your Slipper
dance the light
the trick inside my camera
memory is all I have
I wonder why; what went wrong
diamond star baby doll

you rested on the velvet
with your lips lined along
the belt of Orion
the glimmer in my window

…baby doll
starring in films that will never be made
the crack in your glass slipper
since, my roses have all turned to jade

one thousand years ago
to me you gave your final blessing
and I caught your last song
diamond star now you’re gone
baby doll
Track Name: Beautiful Drag
stun/radiate
all your shock visual
all the while there's no grace
from which tramps like we can fall
colors fade, but never die

keep me in
the back pocket of your heart
and the back of your mind
keeping score and keeping time
you're a diamond, a butterfly

it's all such a beautiful drag
an irresistable mess
signalling both lust and distress
such a beautiful drag
divine decadence
squander the remainder of my common sense

drive til we're crazy
you're the times I'll never beat
fabulous freak
shining in my suicide seat
sing to me, albeit born too late,
in your brand new key
I'll be your brand new rollerskates
all roads lead to this

it's all such a beautiful drag
an irresistable mess
signalling both lust and distress
such a beautiful drag
divine decadence
squander the remainder of my common sense

cyan on the outside
magenta within
with a hazy delivery
and a yellow, fuzzy chin

such a beautiful drag
divine decadence
squander the remainder of my common sense
a beautiful drag
an irresistable mess
will you leave me all alone with my loneliness?

don't I know your soul?
(you're beautiful)
don't I know your soul?
Track Name: In Lieu Of An Overture
y'all we're coming out
in leaps and bounds
our sight would be a wasted fright
without the sound

we hereby convene
in champagne-drenched profanity
the cheeky, glittered tramps
we've come to be

yo hear us holler
from beautiful squalor
we're trash in bracket
how do you do?
oh yeah, we think we love you too

blur the lines around your eyes
the line around your lips
and we'll blur the line
between obsessions and relationships

we'll rattle every bar
on this guilded cage
but you'll never see
the mess we are back stage
would you like to?
how do you do?

with broken hearts in check
and minds cocksure
we'll celebrate this underage
in lieu of an overture
Track Name: Ad Frank Vs. Neil Diamond
babe, I'm in a state
you've been getting in the swing
magnanimosity is a rare thing
when you're starving

crazed, but I'm only one
with whom you get your groove on
put your heartbreaker, haute couture moves on
slave to your demons

I'm the skyline at twilight
waiting for the sun
my patience has grown thin
as the joke I've become

it's just a question of time
three minutes, three thousand miles
a crowded room, a glance,
and a twist of fate

surrogate valentine
stumbling and running behind
he's on his way
love is always in style
but he's often fashionably late

you're great
but I'm changing states
between pleasure and confusion
New York, LA, and Newton

though my patience has grown thin
as the joke I've become
the song remains the same
with minor variation

it's just a question of time
three minutes, three thousand miles
a crowded room, a glance,
and a twist of fate

surrogate valentine
stumbling and running behind
he's on his way
love is always in style
but he's often fashionably late

I'm the skyline at twilight
waiting for the sun
my patience has grown thin
as the joke I've become

it's just a question of time
three minutes, three thousand miles
a crowded room, a glance,
and a twist of fate

here's to hoping I get this right
I've not a clue, but tonight I've got nothing
except nothing to lose

surrogate valentine
fumbling with his charcoal suit and his lilac tie
babe, he's on his way
love is always in style
but he's often fashionably late
