Track Name: Whatever Happened to the Girl with the X-ray Eyes?
Whatever happened to the girl with the X-ray eyes?
I still miss her jokes, her smile, her laugh
Caught within a speck of silver bromide
A ghost seen in a dead man's photograph

Whatever happened to the dose of radiation?
Water torture drawn out forty years
The corporeal transparent and elusive
'Till the world around had all but disappeared

Whatever happened to the man with the mentaculus
Who sunk a fleet of U-boats with his mind?
He got himself embroiled in some sad scandal
An apple core was all he left behind

I heard the motors whir to punch my card
Loving you should not have been this hard
I drank when it said "drink me", underscored
Walked through the door there in the skirting board

Whatever happened to the man of re and brimstone?
Extinguished embers are his eyes
He worked hard to win his heavy burden
And if you earn it, you might take his prize

He searched to find the perfect preparation
A balm to soothe the fie, to end all wars
But he underwent a dreadful transformation
Becoming death, the destroyer of worlds

And death, the destroyer of all worlds
Walked through the door there in the skirting board
The world was like a fog seen from afar
Loving you should not have been this hard
