TORI AMOS lyrics - Smokey Joe

TORI AMOS
"Smokey Joe"

[Pip I:]
Smokey Joe you're calling at the station
If I kill him there are complications
I did not ask for this
"Oh but, love, yes, you did"

Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me

[Pip II:]
It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I:]
Smokey Joe hey what's a revelation
"That one's past is not a destination
It is a road for fools
Who need empty approvals"

[Pip II:]
My dark twin
The annihilating Feminine
Does not need
Civilising

[Pip I:]
Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me

[Pip II:]
It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I:]
Smokey Joe can you pass the pipe
"You have been blessed now go be wise
It is a coward who will say he's not afraid
Of dying when clearly he is potently alive"

[Pip II:]
A songless robin she became
He stole my sister Clitorides
These silken rubber gloves
Choking his vitriolic tongue

[Pip I:]
Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege

[Pip II:]
It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I / Pip II:]
Smokey Joe is calling at the station
Calling at the station
Calling at the station
