Torch Song

Download mp3

My name is Ralph, which is not my real name
And I am not hurting anyone, except for myself

Hands behind your back
feet together
curled up on my mattress

Honey you look so good
you look so good in handcuffs
you look so good...helpless

You have given me
a new lease on life
I pretend you are my Japanese wife

Remember when I first
brought the hardware home
You cried all night
you said I didn't love you
for yourself alone

I said I don't think anybody ever does...

I've got pictures from
my filthy magazines
and memories of the war in my head

Honey I feel so lucky
that I'm still alive
when I see you tied to my bed
