The White Stripes Ashtray Heart Lyrics

you used me like an ashtray heart
case of the punks
right from the start

I feel like a glass shrimp
In the pink panty
With the saccharine chaperone

make invalids out of supermen
call in a
shrink
And pick you up
in a girdle

you used me like an ashtray heart
right from the start
case of the punks

another day, another way
somebody's had too much to think
open up another case of the punks

each pillow is touted like a rock
the mother / father figure
somebody's had too much to think

send your mother home your navel
case of the punks

New hearts to the dining-rooms
Where the hard[?]cakes[?]
dissolve
in new cards, boards,
throats, underwear

Ashtray heart
You picked me out
brushed me off
crushed me while i was
burning out

and you picked me out
like an ashtray heart
hid behind the curtain
waited for me to go out

a man on a porcupine fence
used me for an ashtray heart
hit me where the lover hangs out

stood behind the curtain
while they crushed me out
you used me for an ashtray heart

who looked in the window when I went out
you used me like an ashtray heart
