the crystal skull lyrics – ryan adams

the crystal skull

i make reservations at the crystal skull for me…
for me, and scarlet, and a a friend of hers
i’m not gonna lie to you it only gets worse
she gets so disconnected when her gl*ss is too full

and scarlet gets bombed
and scarlet gets high and she breaks into song
scarlet gets loud, scarlet gets lost
and the gloves come off
and she’s like this every night…
down at the crystal skull
the crystal skull is open all night

i think i was ready for a quiet night…
a quiet night of talking we ended up…
ended up, ended up downtown
’cause scarlet’s thirsty inside
she’s a fisherman who drains the ocean first…
and then decides

and scarlet gets bombed
and scarlet gets high and she breaks into song
scarlet gets loud, scarlet gets angry
and scarlet is so tired…
she’s been swimming for awhile…
n*body reaches sh*r* riding the crimson tide

down at the crystal skull…
the crystal skull
the crystal skull
the crystal skull is open all night…
is open all night

and scarlet’s ready to go out tonight
go out tonight
go out tonight
scarlet’s ready to go out…
tonight
tonight
tonight
scarlet’s ready to go out…
tonight
