    Lyrics

    Jimmy Rose owns a tattoo parlor
    Three times a day
    Cooks a spoon of powder
    I wash the dishes piled in his tub
    If I wait too long he may never stand up

    He lies awake on an empty canvas
    And tilts his brush
    Watching brilliance drip circles on the floor
    And I lay his shirt on the bed
    I fall inside picture frames
    Breathing in his oil-paints
    He doesn't see me
    He wanders in
    His mouth looks thin
    Like a child who stands there shaking
    I can feel his anger choke me

    Jimmy Rose works from twelve to five
    To pay off the doctor that he prescribes
    There's kerosene in the wishing well
    And I throw a penny still holding on to his hand
    And I watch him drift, close his eyes
    I fall inside picture frames
    Breathing in his oil-paints
    He doesn't see me
    He wanders in
    His mouth looks thin
    Like a child who stands there shaking
    I can feel his anger choke me

    Under the gun
    Under my clothes
    He's feeding me
    I'll never know
    I'll never know
    I'll never know
    He wanders in
    His mouth looks thin
    Like a child who stands there shaking
    I can feel his anger choke me
