Death Cab For Cutie - Ingenue Lyrics

Ingenue what have we done to u?
Under that soft skin
I hear a tickin'
The currency of bein' 23
It turns from gold to dust
When u crest the wave of lust
So take all u can
From the mouth of man
Ingenue framed like a cartoon
The borders clear & defined
The colors bold & bright
U will want to be taken more seriously
But they just play a cue
And it's such a hard thing to do
So take all u can
From the mouth of man
And escape from this town
Befo' ur sand runs out
Befo'ur sand runs out
Ingenue, what will become of u?
When age's glacial pace
Cuts valleys into ur face
The currency of bein' 23
It will remain the same
Just by another name
Oh, Ingenue, what will u do?
Oh, Ingenue, what have we done to u?
