my lyricsbox
You can hear the baby bones, cracked beneath her wheels
Tears of Avalon, streak silent down her shield
High crimes and misdemeanors, unfortunate attacks
Will leave you standing nameless while she's turning black

Vanity stands naked at my door, vanity cries, why?

Eleanor, you've lost me in a haze of wine and cocaine
Gone out and cost me, everything I blame
Broadcasting in TV detail to call their own stories
As I try to recapture the best and former glories

Vanity stands naked at my door, vanity cries, why?
Vanity wants everything and more, vanity must die

She swears she'll turn around, turn around for good
She swears she'll turn around, turn around for sure
You know you'll run around, run around for her
You know you want to know pure

Ease on that dirt road, you've still a ways to go
Soak in sights and city lights while you still can borrow
Cursed fall we'll find you and bring a memory
The ghost of her surrender and a kiss of anarchy

She's naked at my door, vanity cries, why?
Vanity wants everything and more vanity must die
