lyrics

Lady goes to beaches to get tossed around and eaten
To get drowned, to get sucked in by the tide
Lady goes to Berkeley, hitched a ride to New York City
Asks a homeless teen to sleep by her side

Lady went to Paris on a whim, didn’t tell her parents
Live out of dumpsters and off of new friends
In a group she’s quiet, one on one she’s a riot
She spills memories and proverbs from the Seine

But skin and bones
She knows, she knows
Skin and bones
She goes, she goes

Raised on a farm in Jersey she was out of there by thirteen
Left her brothers, left her sisters, left the church
Her mother cried in curlers, Lady just ignored her
So she lit and fumed upon the porch

Lady won’t look back, she won’t stumble or crack
Beneath the pressures of the norm
Cause Lady is a light and she’ll shine and she’ll fight
Despite blisters and burns

Skin and bones
She knows, she knows
Skin and bones
She goes, she goes

Skin and bones
She knows, she knows
Skin and bones
She goes, she goes
