Another One Bites The Dust In The Wind Beneath My Wings

Jodie grins through a missing tooth
Her friends say it's a badass look
Leaves your heart a puddle at her feet
A fortune laid to waste, forsook
The frequencies of energies
Otherwordly galactic eyes
Defiance in a hospital gown
Jodie tells herself no lies

Look out below, all seraphim
Saturnalia has dropped its rings
Another one bites the dust
In the wind beneath my wings

She shacks up with her mood swings
Friends all sign the body cast
The seraphim with cane and limp
St. Glutton's fast at Midnight Mass
There's something about those eyes, though
Saturnalia cast to the hounds
Jodie's breathing easier now
Defiance in an angel's gown

Look out below, all archangels
Saturnalia lost its wedding ring
Another one bites the dust
In the wind beneath my wings

They tell you it's all fun and games
Euphrates all the way to Hades
Till somebody loses a butt plug
Somebody Benz the Mercedes
This matrimony not so holy
Holier than thou nonetheless
Now that the Party is over
Who's gonna clean up the mess?

Look out below, all archangels
Saturnalia lost its wedding ring
Another one bites the dust
In the wind beneath my wings
