Well, your number's changed and your hair's cut short
And your house is painted white
Gave me a fright

And your line's engaged 'cause you talk too much
The way you always do
When I'm talking to you

But you haven't changed like your number has
You've been all round the world
You're a rich little girl

There you are like a spider in the corner
Vibrating messages of dark
Vibrating messages of dark

Pornography reassures a man
Fills him with delight
So he's alright

But the men upstairs with their fitted hoods
And the streetlamp lights them up
They're stitching you up

There you are like a spider in the corner
Vibrating messages of dark
Vibrating messages of dark
Vibrating messages of dark
