lyrics

You rolled into Snowfield,
Big sis behind the fifth wheel.
Rosie, Rosie, what you gonna do?
There's no one around
In this ghost of a town,
Except the ghosts and the dead that have found you.
And then they walked in,
Those gun-toting big men,
A cleft chin for her and him too.
Too many surprises.
Ripping off disguises.
Ripping of a human face or two.

I wanna see you dressed for The Grammys,
Charming a generation of doom.
I wanna see your devil in the flesh,
Sucking a Jawbreaker as your food.
I wanna give my strange heart to Miss Kitty,
And I wanna sleep with your beauty too.
I'm gonna get off at the last stop to nowhere.
Tell me, Rosie, Rosie, Rosie, what you gonna do?

You wanna see something?
Pretend it's nothing.
Rosie, Rosie, what do you fear?
Something is not right,
'Cause something is outside
And something is getting nearer.
A monster butterfly,
A scream on the phone line,
Some name that you couldn't hear.
Government intervention,
Cheap plot convention,
The lipstick scrawled on the mirror.

I wanna see you dressed for The Grammys,
Charming a generation of doom.
I wanna see your devil in the flesh,
Sucking a Jawbreaker as your food.
I wanna give my strange heart to Miss Kitty,
And I wanna sleep with your beauty too.
I'm gonna get off at the last stop to nowhere.
Tell me, Rosie, Rosie, Rosie, what you gonna do?
