Sunset rubdown - The mending of the gown

He made an enemy then, he made an enemy of all of you
It's him, not you
You never heard it from me
But there's a breach in the hull of the truth
And the water's too deep to prove

He made an enemy then, he made an enemy of all of you
It's him, not you
It's a little red sea, let the man go, we could go free
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the man falls in the sea

He was a man of many nations
Had a hundred souls and a hundred to go
He was a man of many nations
Two hearts, two hands, it's a slippery slope
He had a fear of being naked
But you're any other man in another man's clothes
He was a man of many nations
Of revelations, oh revelations
He wrote a book about the Bible
And he wrote a book about men in the sky
He wrote a book about the smell of winter
Then two, a little less simple to decipher
Saying, "I am the water at the foot of the palms
Oh, I am sand and wind and the shit in your nose
But either way, I'm a man of many nations"

Was it the mending of the gown
Or the running it around?
Was it the mending of the gown
Or the running and the running it around?


She had a name, she had a spirit
She had a line in the play if you wanted to hear it
But the master of disguises
Her demise was her design, they said
Was it the mending of the gown, or the running
And the running and the running it around?
She said my name and my spirit are both corrupt
And if you hold me close, you gotta hold me up
It was the tender mending of this slender gown
That brought me bending to the ground
Now you'll wear any old thing
Oh, you'll wear any old thing
So she wrapped herself in swallowing
Up the fever to the air to a broken wind
It's an actor thing, she's just pretending
It's an actor thing, she's just pretending
If you burn the virgin flags, then I will shake
As the heat waves in the sand
This one's for Maggie (this one's for Maggie)
And this one's for Sam (this one's for Sam)
This one's for Maggie (this one's for Maggie)
And this one's for Sam (this one's for Sam)

Or any other random spirit lover busted
I have lusted after you
The way bloodsuckers do
The way bloodsuckers do
The way bloodsuckers do

Was it the mending of the gown, or the running it around?
Was it the mending of the gown, or the running
And the running and the running and the running it around?

It was the tender mending of this slender gown
That brought me bending to the ground
But this ship will have to go down
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the paddle go up and the paddle go down
And the paddle go up and the paddle go down
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
