lyrics

your daughters
your daughters
your daughters dream like them

your sisters
your sisters
your sisters look like them

as he passed through peaceful
the lepidopterist dream himself the needle
as he passed through

song that swooned the rats
slowly coming back
to take the children too

the peddler
the peddler
the peddler
disguised as the butterfly collector

in his stone pavilion
palo verdes blues
and ten thousand children's
damaged bedrooms

now in moth-moonlight
little brides-to-be
forced down dark aisles
of midnight streets

they hang like icicles
in their glass cocoons
each an unnamed prisoner
hid in plain view

song that swooned the rats
slowly coming back
to take the children too
