Lyrics[edit | edit source]

amphetamine annie-dog
has her leash and a face
her velvet spleen, her shackle spine
her diamond curse, it comes with mine

a vessel she for violent I
confession arms awake
mine mine, you were always mine
possessed by my taste

and below the angel dog
combs her hair and sings her psalms
the bombs go off, she doesn't notice
it all goes wrong, she sets things tragic
she is venus, she is mars
she's electric, and the struggle of

upon her face we leave no trace
but in her stomach mercury aged
she holds the blood, she carves the knives
she digs the wires in our babies

amphetamine annie-dog
pulls her trash and her stories
from place to place and bed to bed
gives of herself and the magnet head
another floor, another ceiling
counting stars with double meanings

is it wrong to be swallowed whole
to disappear in her
to give to her the priceless peace
of giving up control

we tumble out into the streets
and annie-dog, she drags her leash
pretty face, ugly mouth
bitter bred and so released

and by the no and in the yes
annie goes if you couldn't guess
a simple man, a sycophant
her elephant with the laughing cough
she wants clean sheets and fresh flowers
her dental shots and the hong kong glue

amphetamine annie-dog
has her leash and a face
