Scorpio Rising - Natalie Merchant

Power, dizzy with it stumble
detail, a chance for us to quarrel
anger, my head is shaken violent

If I could calm or restrain you
for the sake of pity
save the pistol
save the cynic's tongue
save the cool white stare
treat me to an honest face sometime

Amaze me now!

Trust is the greatest human error
empty, used me as a vessel
ruthless, you're not known for subtlety
if I could calm or restrain you
for the sake of pity
save the pistol
save the cynic's tongue
save that cool white stare
and treat me to an honest face sometime

Amaze me now!

Artful, there's quite a skill to torture
half smile, was it all you could deliver?
token, so hard to be pleasant

If you could calm or restrain it
for the sake of pity
save the pistol
save the cynic's tongue
save that cool white stare
treat me to an honest face sometime

Amaze me now!
