(Sinead O'Connor/Marco Pirroni)

SINEAD;
-------
The phone calls
Always left me unsure
They'd never say things of their own accord
I am preoccupied
I can't get them out of my mind
They are terrified

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You're not supposed to be here at all now
It's all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made

When I kissed you
You didn't mind
I thought I tasted of too many cigarettes
But you tasted like wine
And I'm not going to change my mind
Just because of what they said
The worm has laid eggs in their hearts
But not in my head

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You're not supposed to be here at all now
It's all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made

There's been days like this before you know
And I liked it all
Like the times we did it so hard
There was blood on the wall

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea

And if you said jump...
And if you said jump...
Jump
Jump

KAREN FINLEY;

Brother, do you have a prick?
Yes I do, just like cows do
Brother, do you have a prick?
Yes I do, just like cows do

After my mother washed me
Powdered me
I insisted that she'd masturbate me
You wonder why I've got panic attacks
You dream you ate me through my silken panties

But baby you've got it wrong
I don't smile when I cum

Jump start me
Jump start me
Jump, jump, jump, jump

Ain't got a leg, but I got a stump
Ain't got a dick baby, but I got a pump
Ain't got a titty, but I got a lump

Never knew how to walk
So I gotta jump
Jump start me
Jump start me
Jump in my heart
Jump from the start

Well, he loves to wear silk knotted scarves around his neck, baby
Finger them, finger the scarves
He twist the scarf around my neck, baby
I wish he was twisting it around my clit
I mean my dick
I mean my cock
Baby, twist it
Twist it good
Twist that silky scarf

Well you sell those ties at Madison Avenue
Work me
Work me good
And you perform that magic trick good
By taking that silk tie
Oiled
Knotted
Pull it out of my asshole
Let me cum
Let me cum
