And now as I would judge and say you're aloof
But you know the truth is a seed
You know what you need is a conflagration
Cause when I see the blood
And the bits of your broken tooth
It gives me the proof that I need
It's the proof that you bleed
It's a revelation
Yeah it's a revelation, it's a revelation
I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
Propped up in the hardware store
Propped up on the front lawn watching the parade
Of those legionnaires with two-by-four's
As they're marching off to war
Yeah they're marching off to war
I didn't know what you were made of
The colour of your blood, what you're afraid of
Are you made of calcium or are you carbon-based
And if you're made of calcium I'll have to take a taste
Cause, listen, calcium is deadly tender to the tooth
And it's one sure-fire way to know if you're
MX-missile-proof, oh no, or if you're just aloof
You were in the ground in late November
When the leaves in earth are down
Did you, did you think they would remember
How you almost made stage-out
Cause when you're running for the game against alfonso
And you fell upon the ground and chipped a tooth
Oh no, listen, I really have surprised her
To learn that you are really MX-missile-proof
Oh, I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
And you're propped up in the hardware store
You were propped up on the front lawn watching the parade of those legionnaires with two-by-four's
As they're marching off to war
Yeah they're marching off to war
Oh they're marching
