If you talk sentimental words, I'll take notes
Lines taken from the worst songs but said in the best ways
I'd like to be spontaneous but you said it was a fine art
We know all your excuses
You can't stand for nothing
I saw you drawing on your shoes
A cartoon of a boy & girl
It made me smile but you were crying
Even those tears were not your own
Red flags are for war & white are to surrender
A parade, flashes of colour
Choose a side
Stand or fall
Consult your books
Underneath it all your skin is covered in marks
Page references & coupons
A stolen medallion around your neck
Trademarks of your schemes
Your name is just a catchphrase
Full of outgoing panache
Of course you're in fancy dress
The queen of the ball
Like everything that's been & gone, but you have a lasting kick
Refusal to go down without a fight
Your quirks work to an advantage
You stay at a safe distance from the critics & reporters
Scandal all around
Take the alley passage
Can't be condemned if no-one knows
Stick to what you know
Your prints
