your dictionary lyrics – xtc

h-a-t-e
is that how you spell love in your dictionary
k-i-c-k
pronounced as kind
f-u-c-k
is that how you spell friend in your dictionary
black on black
a guidebook for the blind

well now that i can see my eyes won’t weep
now that i can hear your song sounds cheap
now that i can talk all your corn i’ll reap
i’m not so sure that joey wed a virgin mary
there are no words for me inside your dictionary

s-l-a-p
is that how you spell kiss in your dictionary
c-o-l-d
pronounced as care
s-h-i-t
is that how you spelt me in your dictionary
four-eyed fool
you led ’round everywhere

now that i can see it’s the queens new clothes
now that i can hear all your poison prose
now that i can talk with my tongue unfroze
i’m not so sure of santa or the buck-tooth fairy
there are no words for me inside your dictionary

now your laughter has a hollow ring
but the hollow ring has no finger in
so let’s close the book and let the day begin
and our marriage be undone
