LYRICS:

You can hear the baby bones
Crack beneath her wheels
Tears of Avalon
Streak silent down her shield
High crimes and misdemeanors
Unfortunate attacks
Will leave you standing nameless
While she's turning black

Vanity stands naked at my door
Vanity cries, why?

Eleanor, you've lost me
In a haze of wine and cocaine
Gone out and cost me
Everything i blame
Broadcast in TV detail
To call their own stories
As i try to recapture
Our best in former glories

Vanity stands naked at your door
Vanity cries, why?
Vanity wants everything and more
Vanity must die

You want to turn around
Turn around for good
You swear you’ll turn around
Turn around for good

Ease on that dirt road
You’ve still a ways to go
Soak in sights and city lights
While you still can borrow
Cursed fall will find you
And bring a memory
The ghost of her surrender
With the kiss of anarchy

Naked at my door
Vanity cries, why?

You want to turn around
Turn around for you
You want to turn around
Turn around for you
You want to turn around
Turn around for good
You want to turn around
