Headbutt (The King Blues)

She had a scream that rattled The seeds inside the apples When she uncaged her cackle Jackals travelled just to battle She gives the girls screwface And the men crooked neck When she walked by my place I heard a string quartet Asthmatics lose their breath The traffic all gets wrecked The Smokers laps collect All Their dropped cigarettes Kids fall onto the decks Cos they don't watch their steps And when they're on the floor They draw her on their etch a sketch She says that life is like a jungle And not like a zoo Participate, don't spectate, Become the view Man if Scarface said it It's just got to be true So this world, this world right here This world is for you I said to all my mates, she won't make a monkey out of me But when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt It felt like a headbutt Staring up at the ceiling Nurses face disbelieving Scalpel on arteries Organs taken larcenies Holds it up like a trophy But that heart belongs to Sophie Slices pieces of me Each one beats individually So now I bite the bullet I'll try to chew right through it Grinds my teeth to the gums I gots to see what I've become There is danger ahead With a mouthful of lead But when I fly It gets harder to deny So I stood on the shore trying to blow the clouds away Right back into the sky made out of papier mache The Sparkles from the moon, danced on top of the waves Like they knew it was the last song ever to be played I said to all my mates, she won't make a monkey out of me But when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt It felt like a headbutt She was up high on the stage just dancing it Breathing fire like God himself had demanded it Like he'd personally asked and commanded it Heaven's packed but thanks to her they're still cramming it She made the sinners blessed by the way that she dressed Stripteasing, fire breathing, dancing burlesque Producing beads of cold sweats on mens foreheads She says welcome to the city of the suffragettes And if you step out with me you'd better step correct I said to all my mates, she won't make a monkey out of me But when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt It felt like a headbutt
