melanie and jennifer and melanie lyrics – destroyer

some things we simply must stand for.
power goes to the chords and such
a stately whole note as yours
at least widely touted as such.

some things we simply must stand for.
power goes to the chords and such
a semi-precious half note as yours
at least highly regarded as such.

but melanie ‘went gold,’
she won’t accept your best wishes anymore.
and jennifer, your halter top… a consecrated altar, but
i’ve wrung my hands and knees in shame there
one-too-many times.
and what, specifically, about me made you choose
to occupy the most absent stage of beauty:
so complete, and so serene, and so sweet?

you’ll be new at what you do for a long time.
still, victory isn’t mine.
i’ve traced your every move then erased them
with a cartographer’s drunken haste.
you’ll be new at what you do a long time.
still, victory isn’t mine.
i’ve traced your every move then erased them
with a cartographer’s drunken haste.

but melanie ‘went gold,’
she won’t accept your best wishes anymore.
and jennifer, your halter top… a consecrated altar, but
i’ve wrung my hands and knees in shame there
one-too-many times.
and what, specifically, about me made you choose
to occupy the most absent stage of beauty:
so innocuous, so complete and so…

but melanie ‘went gold,’
she won’t accept your best wishes anymore.
and jennifer, your halter top… a consecrated altar, but
i’ve wrung my hands and knees in shame there
one-too-many times.
and what, specifically, about me made you choose
to occupy the most absent stage of beauty:
so innocuous, so complete and so sweet?
