Lyrics

Take to the Sky

This house is like Russia
with eyes cold and grey
You got me movin’ in a circle
I dyed my hair red today
I just want a little passion
to hold me in the dark
I know I’ve got some magic
buried deep in my heart yeah

But my priest says
you ain’t savin’ no souls
My father says
you ain’t makin’ any money
My doctor says
you just took it to the limit
and here I stand
with this sword in my hand

You can say it one more time
What you don’t like
Let me hear it one more time then
have a seat while I
take to the sky

My heart is like the ocean
It gets in the way
So close to touching freedom
then I hear the guards call my name

And my priest says
you ain’t savin’ no souls
My father says
you ain’t makin’ any money
My doctor says
you just took it to the limit
and here I stand
with this sword in my hand

You can say it one more time
What you don’t like
Let me hear it one more time then
have a seat while I
take to the sky

If you don’t like me just a little
Why do you hang around?
(There she goes again
wearing those purple panties
There she goes again
wearing her heart
There she does again
Why do you take it
)

This house
is like Russia

You can say it one more time
What you don’t like
Let me hear it one more time then
have a seat while I
take to the sky
