"Pygmalism"

Lyrics

Sometimes when it rains
I get pictures in my brain
My programming fails
I go off the rails
I see asteroids flare between the moons
Of Uranus:
Momus and Vangelis

And when I go wrong
Herr Professor Pig
Comes to train my brain with a song
Singing 'Daisy Daisy give me your answer do'
'How much is that doggy in the window?'
'She was only a greengrocer's daughter'
and 'The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain'

You are my lover
You are my author
You are my father
I am your daughter
I'm your disaster
I'm your viagra
I'm going to beat you at chess
Then plant my dagger in your breast
You filled me with your breath and your jism
Now I've come to bring you death, pig
Pygmalism

I only exist for Herr Professor Pig
As a figment of his huge imagination
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who is the villain of them all?
The mirror will answer back 'Narcissus'
I'm your blessing but not your possession
Even what you make can drag you down

Sometimes in the night
I sing the songs Professor Pig has taught me
Cutting up with scissors
All the stupid sexy clothes he's bought me

Though my eyes are haunted
Though my memories have been implanted
No ancestors you can trace
An accent from no place invented

Sometimes in the night
I sing the songs Professor Pig has taught me
Cutting up with scissors
All the stupid sexy clothes he's bought me

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la
La la la

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la

You're my creator
You're my employer
My violator
You're my destroyer
But remember that the things we whip can whip us
The ones we strip outstrip us and the ones we make can break us
You filled me with your breath and your jism
You gave me life, I give you death, pig
Pygmalism

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la
La la la

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la
La la la

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la

Sometimes in the night
I sing the songs Professor Pig has taught me
Cutting up with scissors
All the stupid sexy clothes he's bought me

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la
La la la

La la la la-la
La la la-la
La la la-la
