Margot & The Nuclear So & So's – Mariel's Brazen Overture lyrics

Now that we have expired I should be honest
Mary, I was unfaithful to you and it kills me
And I have a son who I've never met

Martin, you can be honest with me if you want to
I don't want your devils to hold me and haunt me
'Cause I have a love for you that's absurd

For eighty miles, oh, how we drove
I drove, you drove, we drove together
For eighty miles, puffin' our smokes
I smoked, you smoked, we smoked together
But you loved me, yes, I loved you

For seven days, oh, how we drank
I drank, you drank, we drank together
At roadside pubs in the rain
I drank, you drank, let's drink together
But you need me, yes, I need you

Mariel, someone is bleeding the wall
That house is beginning to crumble
The baby's on fire, oh dear
The zebra's are scaling the roof
The mice are beginning to scatter, oh, Mary

You tied my shoes for me, you tied them tight
But the roof blew off and you fell out of love
I wasted time on you, I wasted socks
But the sun went down and I fell out of love

Mariel, would you love me if I was a liar?
