"An Inflatable Doll"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

An inflatable doll two metres tall
Representing 'The Scream' by Edvard Munch
Stands in the midst of an empty room
Solemn and calm in the afternoon

Sometimes at night, when I'm feeling depressed
A little on edge or unbearably stressed
I let the air out of 'The Scream'
And am finally able to rest

These days my life is beautifully grim
Like a long grey coat by Comme Des Garcons
I love just to sit and to hold my chin
Dreaming of how I'll solve everything

I'll buy inflatable dolls over two metres tall
Michelangelo's 'David' blown up and installed
And Julius Caesar and then
'The Thinker' by Auguste Rodin

These days my life is beautifully grim
Like a long grey coat by Comme Des Garcons
I love just to sit and to hold my chin
Dreaming of how I'll solve everything

I'll get inflatable dolls, over two metres tall
Michelangelo's 'David' blown up and installed
And Julius Caesar and then
'The Thinker' by Auguste Rodin

'The Thinker' by Auguste Rodin
