I’m gonna go where she goes

I believe in peace, yes

I believe in peace, I said

I believe in that girl

I believe in peace, I said

I believe in piece, yes.

But I believe that she’s a devil-bitch

I believe in that girl

I believe in her goodness

I believe in her goddess

I believe in her darkness

I believe in her

 

 

“The Waitress is how I can’t control my violence, and in this one situation, we’re both equals, we’re both waitresses in this song. I don’t go into the details of why. Why isn’t the issue. The issue is that I thought I was a peacemaker, and this violence has totally taken control of every belief system that I have. It’s a very scary thing, especially after you talk about anti-violence.”
[Tori Amos, The Baltimore Sun, ’94]
