Sausage Fingers

Well sausage fingers walked thru the
Roman façade
What she wanted was a rub
But what she got was
A sock in the jaw

Sausage fingers
You came back into my life
Oh I gotta face this demon
From way inside

I pick you up from the quiet room and
You takin’ your sweet time about it
Oh how memories flood back How you always were a queenie

But I avoid your eyes
Cuz for a second I don’t want to be
Recognized

Weren’t we replaying our favorite scenes from Purple Rain?
Weren’t we caught in the 2nd grade with your skirt going round your head?
Going round your head

Down the fragrantly lit halls
The ambience on ice
Slippery on waterfalls
I ask you how you’re doing
you say “just fine”
As if I were some bunny you picked
Up from down the line

As you lied on the table you told
A fable of who’s its what’s its
when
Not an ounce of nostalgia or care for where we been

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Weren’t we replaying our favorite scenes from Purple Rain?
Weren’t we caught in the 2nd grade with your skirt going round your head?

I compare her thighs to mine
Do I look the same supine?
Supine, supine…

You talk about my daddy with a smirk And a smile on your face
Oh just wanna break your jaw
And get the hell out of this place
