The Passion of Dorothy Parker

from by Eddie Japan

lyrics

Dorothy, we love you, Dorothy

a five foot nothing 

female Christ figure

from New York City

Your mother died
and the rest is history
Ink and scotch and wounded men
a Trinity

Sentiment
was not your cup of tea
Wisecracking all the way
to Calvary

Suicide
attempts one, two and three
the cross you bore
would have brought most anyone to her knees
to her knees

You weren’t wrong about anything
and time has only made it clear
You weren’t wrong about anything
and time has only made it
time has only made it clear

Dorothy, were you God’s gift, Dorothy?
A giant brain
and all your pain
for their money

Dorothy, oh we need you, Dorothy
from your mouth
the sharpest sword on society
on society

You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it clear
You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it -- time has only made it clear

The world you left
is much worse for the wear
celebrities and rising seas
for all we care

You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it clear
You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it -- time has only made it clear
You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it clear
You weren't wrong about anything
and time has only made it -- time has only made it clear

Eddie Japan Boston

".. a contagious attitude of doing it up, and doing it up right that you can hear in the carnival swirls of ultra-melodic pop, latin-flavored bravado and cinematic ‘70s UK rock."
