"Last Dance Rodeo" lyrics

Last Dance Rodeo

Your lungs fill up with concrete
Her voice is all you can hear
Red lips and a screwdriver
Wrapped around some mink-clad smear
And you know that she's no diamond
In this damn jukebox hell
Cause only fools gold fools fools
In two-bit hotels
But she's cooler than all that
She's a real high-class cat
She's queen of the last dance rodeo

But under the gas lamp
The air is thick and velvety
Your bones filled with hunger
Your heart filled with longing
You're no longer human
You're an insatiable hole
You wanna bury your face forever
In the navel of her soul
Cause you know

All you need is a heart to call home
All you need is a heart to call home
That's all

Light bulbs, and nylons
And plastic chandeliers
Objects are only objects
They can't feel when you're near
And tangerine lips
And lily-white breasts
These things are eternal
Inside them humanity rests
The skin is like a seashell
You listen to the soul
Like an oldtime radio show

But under the gas lamp
The air is thick and velvety
Your bones filled with hunger
Your heart filled with longing
You're no longer human
You're an insatiable hole
You wanna bury your face forever
In the navel of her soul
Cause you know

All you need is a heart to call home
All you need is a heart to call home
That's all

But don't wander too far
On one constant star
Darkness exists
Except where you are
Your feet are filled with wandering
They follow your own
Cause everywhere you are
Feels like home

So search all you miners
You hunters of dreams
Look in the alleyways
For what you know is not what it seems
And fame, all you maidens
It don't exist too long
But at least look behind you
And see your own shadow's gone
Don't you know it's the last rodeo
You gotta find yourself a cowboy
Or someone to keep you
Warm when it cold

But under the gas lamp
The air is thick and velvety
Your bones filled with hunger
Your heart filled with longing
You're no longer human
You're an insatiable hole
You wanna bury your face forever
In the navel of her soul
Cause you know

All you need is a heart
All you need is a heart to call home
All you need is a heart to call home
All you need is a heart
That's all
That's all
