lyrics

The lights go down and the air goes wet
The big headed clowns begin to sweat
And the big haired girls begin to shriek
jenny we love you, jenny you freak
she climbs onstage and it doesn’t look easy
she begins her striptease
first a shoe and then a glove
and then the whole damn coverup

and so reveals a three inch waist
imbedded in it’s steel bar cage
steel ribs are all that hold her up
since her muscles all got liposucked
first one breast and then the other
come unscrewed from their mother
the big headed clowns whistle and cheer
they’re begging jenny for a souvenier
then one leg and then it’s two
and they push closer for abetter view
and the big haired girls begin to swoon
as jenny shakes off an arm and unscrews an ear

the finale of the show the place goes silent
she tugs a chain with her chin that runs to her vagina
and she starts to turn inside out
as the curtain drops and the devout
solicit the crowd for donations
jenny needs just one more more operation
she’s tired of watching the audience writhe
she’s gonna get some of them there pop out eyes

and in the dressing room they crowd and drool
all the big haired girls that made fun of her in school
they love her now since she began
to dismember for the lust of their big headed men
and jenny doesn't say a word as the chatter and gasp
as they screw her back together ans they buckle her straps
she hasn't spoken for years, she still wonders which one
of them big haired girls it was that stole her tongue?

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
