Track Name: Vanity
your hands smell like oranges
and your hair is tinted tangerine
and your mouth is shaped by gravity
but your feet are covered in magazines

i tried to reach you by telephone
but you were outselling bracelets and noone was home
i tried to reach you through vanity
but there was ice on all of the roads
and the malls were probably all closed
so i got drunk and drove

and i yelled out the window
you're mine, you're mine, you're mine

i made this song on a holiday
drinking that whiskey and feeling ok
but after the words had been written down
i took a flame to the curtains in your living room
and covered the rest in your orange perfume
while you lay tied down in the bedroom

you're mine, you're mine, you're mine
