​See If They Applaud

This song is by Thea Gilmore and appears on the album The Lipstick Conspiracies (2000).

I had too much to drink last night, now I'm lying on the floor
Watching the coloured patterns in my eyes, leftovers from the light
And this "bearing all" thing is harder than I thought
I'm gonna pull out my own tail feathers and see if they applaud

See I always had this problem while you were still around
We both threw our cards on the table but yours were all face down
You know the thing about failure is it happens when you're out of time
You don't know you've lost the race until you cross the finish line

And that's
How high
I'll refrain this time
You know the rain's come down again
You'll pardon me if I don't seem surprised

Now the grey suits and the big boys they're all slaves to their bank balance, see
The media mass markets freedom as the ultimate commodity
And you tattoo my image on the lips of all your friends
As some tight cunt to fuck and leave and fuck again

Like I'd say
How high
I'll refrain this time
You know the rain's come down again
You'll pardon me if I don't seem surprised
How high, how high, how high

And I had too much to drink last night, now I'm lying on the floor
Watching the coloured patterns in my eyes, leftovers from the light
And this "bearing all" thing is harder than I thought
I'm gonna pull out my own tail feathers and see if they applaud
See if they applaud
