Yer Ropes - Lyrics

they say the past is broken
but only if you want to live like most
they say this place is haunted
but only by a ghost
either way angel
you can earn your wings
by living on both coasts
seldom is the silence broken
except by the few and fortunate to boast hanging by a thread
well out on the ropes
well you have enough to hang you
but you know better than to stand still
all your lovers can remain here
but I guess you never will
there's so much left to shoot for
and you look good moving in for the kill
you can wash the dirt off later
with some time and a little bit of soap hanging by a thread
well out on the ropes
the fly here loves the spider
as they dance around the bed
the wilful wanton inside her
delivers desires to the heart and head
when it's time to fly come morning
the spider smiles and says nope
he's grown to love the way your wings feel hanging by a thread
well out on the ropes
well you half expected it to happen
but not by someone whom who felt so close
either way angel
you can keep your wings
and the stuff you cherish most
hanging by a thread
well out on the ropes
