After the Bomb

from by Dr. Carmilla

lyrics

The butterfly is a pretty picture-
Dress her up or dress her down.
You can touch her with your eyes at night,
Her stockings falling down

She has no name, but she's a pretty creature-
Pin her up or pin her down.
You can touch her up tonight.
Her head hits the ground

She was the queen of fantasy
-Silver tongue but hopelessly,
From the bottom of her whisky glass,
she drowns herself in misery-
But she's lost in this part of town.
After the bomb, it all came tumbling down

In the back of a speakeasy,
You watched her down her drink
And in the back, late that night,
"She's too fucked to put up a fight".

One brave man with hopeful smile,
Pulled out his junk to have a good while,
But butterfly was pissed all right
And took his knife and his eyes.
