lyrics

You make a really lovely victim, darling
Especially so made up and so attractively lighted
And you could not have picked a nicer setting
To flatter the delusions you’ve invited

And I know just what you’re saying
And I know just what you’re not
And I wonder how you’ll get along
When your composure’s shot

And where will you go when you finally know how it’s all your fault
Messy house, messy life, messed up kids, your first wife, they’re all your fault

Your platitudes were perfect, except for when they weren’t
Your logic always flawless and your lessons so well learned
Thankful as I am for all the tools you gave to me
I will wield them all like weapons if you get close enough to see

And you know just what I’m saying
And you don’t know what I’m not
And you know that I’m not playing
And you know that I have thought this through
Over and over again, oh, over and over again

And where will you go when you finally know how it’s all your fault
Messy house, messy life, messed up kids, your first wife, they’re all your fault
And what will you say when you finally see how it’s all your fault
Nothing you can do about anyone but you it’s true it’s all your fault

(And don’t you tell me, don’t you tell me, don’t you say you didn’t know)

Where will you go when you finally know how it’s all your fault
Messed-up kids, messy house, messed-up life, that one spouse, it’s all your fault

You make a really lovely victim, darling
Especially so made up and so attractively lighted
And you could not have picked a nicer setting
To flatter the delusions you’ve invited

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call has things to say. She sounds a little like Ingrid Michaelson meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs, which sounds improbable, but give it a try. She hails from Alaska and tours North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, sharp, surprising confections in every genre full of rich dark carmelized sugar, savor, & spice. ... more
