Past The Mission – Tori Amos

She said she knew what my books did not. I thought she knew what’s up.

Past the mission; behind the prison tower.
Past the mission; I once knew a hot girl.
Past the mission; they’re closing every hour.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.

She said they don’t think they know him well.
She knew him better, better, better.
Everyone wanted something from him.
Well, I did too, but I shut my mouth. He just gave me a smile.

Past the mission; behind the prison tower.
Past the mission; I once knew a hot girl.
Past the mission; they’re closing every hour.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.

Hey, they found a body. Not sure it was his, still they’re using his name.
And she gave him shelter. Somewhere I know she knows.
Somewhere I know she knows. Some things only she knows.

Past the mission; behind the prison tower.
Past the mission; I once knew a hot girl.
Past the mission; they’re closing every hour.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.
Past the mission; behind the prison tower.
Past the mission; I once knew a hot girl.
Past the mission; they’re closing every hour.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.
Past the mission; and I, I smell the roses.
Past the mission; and I smell the roses.
