I arose and Marigold lay down with Curious Iris
Cherry gave to Victor her prudence and her virus
For the sake of purity I can recall the time and place
Between Wisdom and Murder she gave up her immaculate face

[Chorus]
My poor belated chastity fell foul of grown up games,
With false and lovely modesty
I can recall the names I`ll miss
In the particle of me that cares for this
I betrayed those little atoms with a kiss

Patience has her virtue still
but every grace must have its price
I through some felicity may spin a tale of constant vice
I took my better nature out, drowned it in the babbling stream
Took the blossom of my youth and blew it all to smithereens

[Chorus]

And if you still don`t like my song then you can just go to hell
I don`t care if I`m right or wrong or if my typewriter can spell
But I cannot promise you I`ve said "Goodbye" to childish things
There`s still some pretty insults left and such sport in threatening

[Chorus]

And for the sake of clarity
They are "Faith", "Hope", and "Charity"
In the particle of me that cares for this
I betrayed those little atoms with a kiss
