Purple People by Tori Amos

well hey do you do judo when they surround you
a little mental yoga will they disappear
it’s grim but never dubious as motives go
no matter what it takes she promises a show

thunder wishes it could be the snow
wishes it could be as loved as she can be
these gifts are here for her, for you, for me

i watch me be this other thing, i never know
if i’m marooned or where the purple people go
then lily white matricide from vicious words
it doesn’t leave a scratch so therefore no one’s hurt

thunder wishes it could be the show
wishes it could be as loved as she can be
these gifts are here for her, for you, for me

and on and on the nurses make it clear
just when you escape you have yourself to fear
a restaurant that never has to close
breakfast every hour it could save the world

so hey do you do judo in your finery
an angel’s face is tricky to wear constantly
thunder wishes it could be the snow
wishes it could be as loved as she can be
these gifts are here for her, for you for me
la…hey yeah for her for her..mmmhmmm..

This dress from Prairie Underground always reminds me of our trip to Bodie, California in the summer of 2010. Maybe some ghosts snuck into the fabric. In the above photo I’m wearing the dress with crazy geometric tights from Anthropologie and Marc by Marc Jacobs rubber boots. In the Bodie photos I’m wearing it with some old biker boots that I’ve since given away.
