lyrics

My Androgynous Ex-Frankenspouse

When I was lonely and couldn’t find a date
I headed down to my garage
And there I created an androgynous mate
Out of parts from my brother’s car
But I was never much of a handyman
And I was never good with tools
My lover lost a leg, lost both its hands
Never made it past the honeymoon

This is just like my life
More like my ex-wife
It always falls apart
Always chills my heart
Makes me want to kill you all

I tried so hard to reattach its head
But I ran out of super glue
And its broken heart really broke my heart
Love can be so damn cruel
Now I’m weeping, and its parts may rust
But I can’t quell the waterworks
If I can’t find a way to make this damn thing work
Might just have to go berserk

Nothing I can do right
I’ve been wrong my whole life
It always falls apart
Always chills my heart
Makes me want to kill you all

Keeping to myself again
Weeping to myself again
Shying to myself again
Dying to myself again

One thing I have to confess
I never bought it a dress
Never gave it a tie
So sad it had to die

Faithless, I’m faithless
Faithless, Out of love

Faithless, I’m faithless, I’m faithless
