lyrics

Been in a rut
Feeling low
All my thoughts
turn to shadows
In my mind
I’ve been stuck
Moving slow
You and I are like
The unlucky
Leading the blind

My heart is a heart
Shaped ashtray
Full of crumpled
Cigarette butts
Your granny ash
Is bound to brake
For goodness sakes
It’s had enough
Of this sadistic
Love

I’m unenchanted
My head is frantic
A lost romantic
in a sea of industry
in a state of panic
sad or manic
I’m taking advantage
of all of your sympathy

My heart is a heart
Shaped ashtray
Full of crumpled
Cigarette butts
Your granny ash
There’s no way it could last
But it’s tough
And proven that it can stand up
To this sadistic love

I’m probably stoned
Drunk at a bar
Place a proper lady like you
Would never go to
There I am
And here we are
And I got something
I would like to show you

My heart is a heart
Shaped ash tray
Full of crumpled cigarette butts
Your granny ash
Is bound to brake
for goodness sakes
it’s had enough
of this sadistic love
