Polly wants a cracker
Think I should get off her first
I think she wants some water
To put out the blow torch

Isn't me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Help myself
Got some rope
Have been told
Promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Help myself

Polly wants a cracker
Maybe she would like more food
She asked me to untie her
A chase would be nice for a few

Isn't me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Help myself
I've got some rope
Have been told
I promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Help myself

Polly said...

Polly says her back hurts
And she's just as bored as me
She caught me off my guard
Amazes me, the will of instinct

Isn't me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Help myself
Got some rope
Have been told
Promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
I want some help
Help myself

    Polly was actually inspired by an article that kurt read about in the paper. A girl was being tortured/raped and she started to put on a comfortable face around the offender. He then began to soften up around her and she took his moment of venerability and booked it. You can tell from the lyrics if you look at it close enough.

    Is about a sociopath that keeps a girl captive in his house. He is deliriously in love with her... In the end he kills himself and leaves the girl tied up in ropes.

    Back in the 90's there was this girl that got kidnapped at a grunge concert. The guy tied her up for awhile and eventually she escaped
