The man with the yellow face An angry man on a painting He's gotta a yellow face Maybe no coincidence when your surename is citroen Meaning lemon O Goddamn Standing there very stridently in the middle of the room Very soon he's gonna walk away Into the world behaving like a loon Wading thru air like it's water Going upstream no never make it easy on yourself Scratching his arms Hurting his feet Like Jesus he's gonna let it bleed Standing there very eagerly In the middle of that room Very soon he's gonna walk away Hit the street behaving like a loon Fuck that moon damn the stars The war that would end all wars That big fuckin' lie Most of his friends died The paint that never dries Never dries The biggest cliché of all Nothing is permanent It's all gonna crumble and fall Gonna tell you a secret The man with the yellow face Well he's is not really angry at all

Lady in the chair A face that could break into laughter At any given moment Though she might lash out Like an angry cat She might think otherwise She might think that you should go and fuck yourself She might think moneywise She might think I love my painterman So strong in her fragility So sensually beautiful Those full lips The small mole beneath her right eye The simple black dress She might think otherwise She might think that you should go and get lost She might think lemon ice She might think I love my painterman You know when it's time to stop You know all things will dissolve when she stands up and walks towards you You know it's time to stop When she starts laughing at you A face that could break into tears at any given moment Though she might start purring like a satisfied cat She might think otherwise She might think that you should stay and comb her hair She might think twice She might think i love my painterman
