I took a taxi form LA to Venus
In 1985 I was electromagnetically sucked
Back into a party going on that night
It was the gory of the 80s with karma drawn up in lines
And two Bugle Boy models saying "baby it's a freebie
You sure look deprived." I had the
Story of O in my bucket seat
Of my want to be mustang
Auditioning for reptiles in their
Raquel Welsh campaign
In the glories of the 80's you said
"I'm not afraid to die" I said
I don't find that remotely funny, even
On this space cake high
And then when it all seemed clear
Just then you go and disappear
Silicone party babies to the left
And Joan of Arcs to the right
No one feeling insecure
We were all gorge and famous in our last lives
In the glories of the 80's you said
"the end is nothing to fear" I said
Blow the end
Now baby who do I gotta shag to get outta here
And then when it all seemed clear
Just then you go and disappear
Sure you're out there orbiting around
Wish I had you back now
I met a drag king called venus
She had a velvet hologram she said
"My husband ran off with my shaman but they love me as I am"
In the glories of the 80's
I may not have to die
I'll clone myself like that blonde chick
That sings Bette Davis eyes and then
When it all seemed to clear
Just then
You go and disappear
