    Even if I am in love with you
    All this to say, what's it to you?
    Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
    Of the fingerprints on me from you

    Other evidence has shown
    That you and I are still alone
    We skirt around the danger zone
    And don't talk about it later

    Marlene watches from the wall
    Her mocking smile says it all
    As the records the rise and fall
    Of every soldier passing

    But the only soldier now is me
    I'm fighting things I cannot see
    I think it's called my destiny
    That I am changing

    Marlene on the wall

    I walk to your house in the afternoon
    By the butcher's shop with the sawdust strewn
    "Don't give away the goods too soon"
    Is what she might have told me

    And I tried so hard to resist
    When you held me in your handsome fist
    And reminded me of the night we kissed
    And of why I should be leaving

    Marlene watches from the wall
    Her mocking smile says it all
    As the records the rise and fall
    Of every man who's been here

    But the only one here now is me
    I'm fighting things I cannot see
    I think it's called my destiny
    That I am changing

    Marlene on the wall
