Sleaze Mansions

I was walking down the road.
I met as girl she was carring a load.
I said "Am i going your way?"
She said, "That's what they all say at
Sleaze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions."

Well we got there on time.
They asked me in, which I couldn't decline.
Inside the people were so free.
I was determined to make a change in me.

Sleaze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions.

In this house they were so cool,
Not like the cynical bastards back at school.
They really liked to be your friend,
Whose mortal pride they would defend
at sleaqze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions.

The time slipped past at great speed,
a matter that did concern me indeed.
I really didn't want to leave
and tell a world that wouldn't believe in
sleaze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions.

Out on the street I pulled my coat.
The wind formed hands that clutched my throat.
I roamed the alleys of lost timeand watched the sciving workers mime,
not like sleaze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions.

I never saw that girl again,
nor that crazy, crash out den.
And now i'm acting like a fool
with those cynical bastards back at school.

Sleaze, sleaze mansions. Sleaze, sleaze mansions.
