Kaleidoscope Eyes

I’m a disappearing act done poorly
But if I ever get it right, you’ll miss me sorely
Look like the cat that just ate the canary
Coughing up feathers
There’s a get out of jail card
If I can think of something clever
“I plead the fifth on all of this”

*****
When your chips are down
And your drinks are all gone
I’ll still be here wishin’ and waitin’ for you to come on
Kaleidoscope eyes sparkle at the world
My emerald city downtown girl
In the sickness of you
I’m just a white blood cell, fighting like hell for you

*****
I’m just a crook, with no intent or stash
Pour gasoline on the vault, just to burn the cash
I swear to god
I’ve never heard a better sound (coming out)
Then when you’re whimpering my name
From your mouth
“I plead the fifth on all of this”

*****
When your chips are down
And your drinks are all gone
I’ll still be here wishin’ and waitin’ for you to come on
Kaleidoscope eyes sparkle at the world
My emerald city downtown girl
In the sickness of you
I’m just a white blood cell, fighting like hell for you

*****
I’ve got an insatiable desire for your insides
It’s undeniable
I’ll conspire in full against your body tonight

*****
When your chips are down
And your drinks are all gone
I’ll still be here wishin’ and waitin’ for you to come on
Kaleidoscope eyes sparkle at the world
My emerald city downtown girl
In the sickness of you
I’m just a white blood cell, fighting like hell for you
