Amy In The White Coat - Bright Eyes

You take your clothes off right after school
The tea is on, the flame is blue
You hope this won't take all afternoon
The tv's waiting to talk to you
It's your naked body on white velour
But there's no feeling, just weight on you
You get nauseous now as he speaks to you
Such proper language for acts so cruel
He says 'We all follow the rules
We can't very well go and break them now, can we
For you
Your older sisters, I've had them too
But you're my favorite, you know it's true
You look like your mother, in that thin disguise
Your parting mouth, your shutting eyes
And the way that you hate me, and the length of your hair
It's the reason I made you, it's the bond that we share
You see we're all trying to endure
You could easily go and make your own life somewhere
Couldn't you?'
And you keep your eyes shut, get to school on time
Where you're a bag of warm fluid
Where you're the corpse in the class
You walk so near to the lockers
You lay so low in the grass
Did you get that cut from the principal
Did you get that bruise on the bus
You should wash your hair more
You should look more like us
I saw you walking once under powder blue skies
You looked cold still, your color was high
And I tried to talk to you, but you walked right by
I don't know which I said then, hello or goodbye
? all want to be pure
But it isn't a very easy thing now, is it
To do?
