M A R I N A : SHE SLIPPED INTO THE SEA, CLOSED HER EYES, AND BREATHED IN ANYWAY / OH, MARINA, OH, MARIE / AT FIRST SHE FELT SO FREE, BUT WAS SURPRISED, WHEN SHE'D SAID ALL SHE COULD SAY / HE'D CONVINCED HER FINALLY TO TAKE THE DIVE, AND SUBMERGE HERSELF WITH HIM / BUT WHAT THEY DID NOT SEE WHEN THEY'D CONTRIVED, WAS THAT NEITHER COULD SWIM / HE HAD NOT MEANT TO HURT HER / OF THIS, OH, SHE WAS SURE

I'M ABANDONED TO REPENT FOR THE LIFE THAT YOU'VE DECIDED / WHAT I WOULD DO TO FORM A SINGLE BOND AND PROVE THAT I AM KIND / INSTEAD YOU DRIVE ME TO DESOLATE YOUR LIFE AND PEACE OF MIND / BUT LOOK HERE, VICTOR, DON'T YOU SEE? EVERY SUTURE GUARANTEES, THE FIEND YOU'VE FEARED IS INSIDE THEE

I N H I S I M A G E : WHEN I SEE PAIN ON MY MOTHER'S FACE / EVERY CREASE CARVED IN BY HIS MALAISE / WELL, I CAN'T HELP BUT STUTTER AND LOSE MY PLACE / NO, I DON'T WANNA LOOK LIKE HIM TODAY / WHEN I AM TOLD WHAT A MAN SHOULD SAY / AND I HEAR ABOUT HOW HE WAS SO GREAT / WELL, I THINK THAT I'D RATHER I LOSE MY WAY / WHEN I'M TOLD THAT I HAVE TO GROW UP TO BE BRAVE / DON'T BE LIKE YOUR MOTHER, DON'T CRY OR COMPLAIN / AND ALWAYS BE SURE TO BE PROUD OF YOUR NAME / WHY SHOULD I'VE BEEN MADE IN HIS IMAGE? WHY SHOULD I'VE BEEN MADE SO TIMID? WHY MUST I THINK, EVERY TIME I BLINK, OF HOW I HAVE HIS EYES? WHEN I TRY TO BE GOOD, WHERE HE TURNED AWAY / WELL, IT'S HARD WHEN MY MOTHER, ALONE IN BED, LAYS / AND SHE LOOKS ON AT ME WITH THAT DISTANT GAZE

SHE DOES TRICKS YOU WON'T BELIEVE / YOU CAN CATCH THEM AT THE MARKET, WHERE HE'S ALSO SELLING BEEF / IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO SEE HER, YOU HAVE REASON TO STARE / FOR WE'RE ALL WILD FOR THAT LITTLE GOLDEN MARE / THERE ARE SKIES UP IN THE CITY SCRAPED BY THE RICHEST OF MANKIND / SHARP MEN WITH POLISHED SHOES AND CARS, ALL THE SMOKE YOU WILL NOT MIND / 'CAUSE IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO SEE IT, YOU HAVE REASON TO BRAG / FOR WE'RE ALL WILD FOR MR. MONEYBAGS / BUT DON'T SAY A WORD / FOR THE WORM IN THE DIRT / DARE NOT SPEAK / OF THE CATTLE RAISED FOR MEAT / HOLD YOUR TONGUE / WHEN THE SMOKE GETS IN YOUR LUNGS / FOR WE'RE ALL WILD FOR THE GLIMMER THAT WILL FADE / SO INSTEAD PRAISE THE HAND SEWING SEEDS IN THE DIRT THAT'S HERE TO STAY
