TORI AMOS lyrics - Past The Mission

TORI AMOS
"Past The Mission"

I don't believe I went too far
I said I was willing, willing, willing
She said she knew what my books did not
I thought she knew what's up

Past the mission, behind the prison tower
Past the mission, I once knew a hot girl
Past the mission, they're closing every hour
Past the mission, I smell the roses

She said they all think they know him well
She knew him better, better, better
Everyone wanted something from him
Well, I did too but I shut my mouth
He just gave me a smile

Past the mission, behind the prison tower
Past the mission, I once knew a hot girl
Past the mission, they're closing every hour
Past the mission, I smell the roses
Past the mission, I smell the roses

Hey, they found a body
Not sure it was his, still they're using his name
And she gave him shelter
And somewhere I know she knows
(She whispers again)
Somewhere I know she knows
(She whispers again)
Some things only she knows

Past the mission, behind the prison tower
Past the mission, I once knew a hot girl
Past the mission, they're closing every hour
Past the mission, I smell the roses

Past the mission, behind the prison tower
Past the mission, I once knew a hot girl
Past the mission, they're closing every hour
Past the mission, I smell the roses
Past the mission, I smell the roses
Past the mission, I smell the roses
