BARRY ADAMSON lyrics : "Vermillion Kisses"
Along dead man's trail. Once upon a time a very Handsome
Prince was walking along dead man's trail.
Morning had just about broken and the wings of tiny
Birds cut through the rays of the sun casting slithering
Shadows as they went about their pleasure.
The Handsome Prince was preparing to engage in this
Splendor when all of a sudden he noticed a beautiful
And quite voluptuous maiden travelling towards him
In slow motion. "Oh my god" thought the Handsome Prince
With shameful excitement "She's incredible and so very...
Stimulating." As the Beautiful Maiden approached him
He gathered all of his resources,
Plucked up courage, and gave her one of his special
Curtsys that would hope to see him in with a chance
When he realised she was very tearful if not completely
Crushed. The Handsome Prince swallowed a wave of guilt
As the Beautiful Maiden now openly stood before him
Sobbing her heart out. Realising something was terribly
Wrong the Handsome Prince put all of his hangups on
The shelf and asked "What are you so inconceivably
Sad about if I may be so bold to enquire?
". The Beautiful Maiden gave a big sigh,
Which seemed to last a lifetime,
As the Handsome Prince sat upon the edge of his metaphorical
Seat in preparation for her answer.
She announced "I've just seen my Therapist,
Who is convinced I have a borderline personality disorder
With narcissistic traits which means I'll be unhappy
All my life as nobody will be able to measure up to
The fantastically high standards that I just can't
Help but impose on them." The Handsome Prince's heart
Exploded with joy as in this moment he fell strangely
And completely in love. "Why that's outrageous,
Who is this Doctor of misery?
". The Beautiful Maiden had broken into the tiniest
Of smiles and seeing she had the Handsome Prince by
The short and curlies she began to weave a little magic
Here and a little magic there "I've never met anyone
Like you before. Not only are you compassionate but
You're also very handsome.
I've lost my purse and the keys to my hovel and it
Looks like storms and I was wondering.
..." The Handsome Prince floundered slightly and then
Ejaculated "You're so very beautiful,
I think I might die if I don't invite you to my castle
At the end of this trail."
"Would you like to kiss me my Handsome Prince?
" His knees began to knock as he lent towards the voluptuous
Maiden in implicit expectation.
When they kissed the Handsome Prince felt a wave of
Nausea and a pain in his chest as blood began to now
Pour from it and the tiny birds dipped in the morning
Light and said "Goodbye" to the Handsome Prince,
Who folded into a heap on Dead Man's Trail.
The Beautiful Maiden exclaiming there is one born every minute.
