Lyrics

Your love it was only a whisp away
You scratch my hand and say theres a better land
Well I know your daddy hes not rich
And your mothers a drunk
But your the one 'I worship and adore'

Always want to lay me down you know
It smells like Bangkok in china town
Did you get your pound of flesh today

Well ive got a lotta learn
To learn about your past
Its a mean unpleasant land

Sometimes you cccome in deep inside
Sometimes it doesnt touch the sides
Like a sausage up an alley way
Always want to lay me down you know
It smells like Bangkok in china town
Did you get your pound of flesh today

How innocent is the day when you smile
And then you lay on your side alone hide our soul
Its another plan
Its another land

Your love it was only a whisker away
You scratch my hand and say theres a better land

Always want to lay me down you know
It smells like Bangkok in china town
Did you get your pound of flesh today
