lyrics

Cherie slides the gate
and closes up for the night
walks through the mall and sighs
Gets in her Chevrolet
and blasts The Cure and The Smiths
puts her flask to her lips

Takes Exit 22
and pulls in her parking space
climbs up the fire escape
Steps into her bedroom
and crashes on to her bed
Rips stockings from her legs

She looks in the mirror and thinks that it's time
to start another life.

So, she's putting on her goggles and a bowler hat
She checks her pocket watch, adjusts her rocket pack
She laces up her boots and puts her makeup on
She grabs her leather coat and her Tesla Gun

Cause she used to be a Goth Kid but now she's a Steampunk Girl.

She dreams of brass and gaslight
Imagines taking a trip on a steam powered ship
Instead she hops a flight
to a Sci-Fi convention, now it's her intention

to finish her novel and go back to school
and learn to live again.

So, she's putting on her goggles and a bowler hat
She checks her pocket watch, adjusts her rocket pack
She laces up her boots and puts her makeup on
She grabs her leather coat and her Tesla Gun

Cause she used to be a Goth Kid but now she's a Steampunk Girl.
