Lyrics

Hang your hopes on sun
But the ships don't sail
Storm clouds rule everything
Sailors pack both bars and Marlene works hard
More cheap engagement rings

Thirteen blood red rosebuds
Five weird weekend crimes
Sixteen sincere smiles while
Nobody's lyin'

Alibis need help when their proofs not clear
Who'll fake good words to say?
Even Marlene's eyes can't disguise cold fear
Now curse your jealous ways

Thirteen blood red rosebuds
Five weird weekend crimes
Sixteen sincere smiles while
Nobody's lyin'

Things she'd say would tend to make you sad
Lonesome for a past you never had
Leave a note that lies about your life baby
Your Kampuchea cobwebs and your wife

Think of Marlene's mouth as a keepsake scar
And close your dockside door
Walk the wet fields fast towards the morning star
And change your name once more

Thirteen blood red rosebuds
Five weird weekend crimes
Sixteen sincere smiles while
Nobody's.

Thirteen blood red rosebuds
Five weird weekend crimes
Sixteen sincere smiles while
Nobody's lyin'
