Musically inspired by T. Rex's "Cosmic Dancer." I played all the guitar on this track which was really fun, but I felt like I was channeling John Lennon a bit in the way I sang it (maybe because of this Plastic Ono drums?). Anyway...this is a pretty personal song. In fact, the first line is directly from my old diary, but songs are also spells that I put on myself and I wanted to be tough and fully embrace the pain that comes with pleasure. You know.. Nietzsche's way vs the Buddhist's way : )

Lyrics

I guess I wasn't thinking
of where it all was going
I just let myself imagine
something good was gonna happen

There is no other feeling
like the one in the beginning
I can't keep myself from falling
and I don't wanna listen

CHORUS
I don't want your mercy
know you can't help but hurt me
but I want my heart to get dirty
do turn around if you heard me

I betcha think that I'm not willing
Yeah you believe I'm only fooling
but I got secrets I'm not telling
and I don't need you to know nothing

Its easy to imagine
And it feels like it could happen
I know I will have it
By luck or by magic

CHORUS
But I don't want your mercy
Know you can't help but hurt me
But I want my heart to get dirty
So turn around if you heard me

bridge/solo

I can't believe I ever met you
And when you leave I'm gonna let you
Cos if I grieve what good would that do
I know I'll need to forget you

CHORUS:
So I don't want your mercy
Know you can't help but hurt me
But I want my heart to get dirty
So turn around if you heard me
