It's Only Sex
Spoken word

Do you believe you're a goddess?
Dropping names of planets and pearls
Before the swine that's among us
Left drooling while you're tossing those curls
Well fancy lights and patchouli
Isn't gonna make me forget
This is supposed to come naturally
Like turning that cheap wine into sweat
I admit some things expanded -- while others contracted
But you'd think we were the very first ones -- the way that you acted
