False Love

Well I met my false love
in an old department store
she wore a portuguese gown
a statue on the sales floor

I bought her from the shopkeep
took her home to my apartment
put my grandmothers ring on her plastic finger
and whispered in the darkness

say you love me just once
darling you know it’s true
I’ll change your clothes every season the things I’ll do for you
I’ll buy all fluorescent lights
cause I know you like them best
say it once it’s alright
say you love me just once say you love me just once

and I’ve never been so scared as when
that army of old mannequins
with pale skin and body parts
and dead eyes made from middle eastern oil

they stood you in a window case
an armless plastic venus
perfect porcelain removed from love
and all of my diseases

now I’m digging a hole
to hell or china
I need a new grandmothers ring
where else could I find such a thing?

and I dug down so deep
no sun will shine here
only way out is down
till then I’ll disappear

digging a hole
digging a hole
one day I’ll be free
free from the hole
by the boneyard tree
