Hey Bacchus hey She hates me Hey Bacchus hey She hates me She hates me Hey Bacchus hey She hates me Hey Bacchus hey She hates me The street lamps light a wet old red hook road A furry vino tinted slave Molten oil painted Brooklyn Bridge (Cobblestone grave) A lonely blue girl guards the riverbed She shakes her brown torch at the tide On Pier Six we'd creep and count the cracks... (Side by side Side by side See, we're counting cracks) Your mom was out wearing herself inside I'll stop the train to say hello A used boyfriend's just bought her this new car (I said I know) She said burn Together Burn We'll burn together Hey Bacchus hey She hates me (Hates me) Hey Bacchus hey She hates me (She hates me) She hates me She hates me She said burn Together She said burn Together Burn We'll burn together (Burning together) Now don't believe she'll never leave again I can't forget the words she said back when She said burn We'll burn together (Burning together)
