Nirvana Lyrics. She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap I wish I could eat your Cancer when you turn black Hey! I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Hey! I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Your advice Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back Hey!
