The Dresden Dolls Ultima Esperanza Lyrics

Downloading doves on your fancy computer

You’re shooting for love in the dark

Hey foks you’ve found her now go instant message

Her name is a pretty good start

Ultima sits in her bedroom in texas and

Waits for her hamsters to touch

She lost her legs in a car crash three years ago

She doesnt get around much

But she is hoping someday

Somebody will take her away

Now that you got her a dress you can send her

A matching attachment and face

Slick rhododendrons you make out of paper

With flowers that never lose shape

You have a video camera strapped to

Your forehead in case she is true

Smiling rewind as we die in slow motion

(As if its not happening to you)

Don’t be afraid of the dark ages darling,

You may have to wait but a letter is coming

With mixes of marilyn songs

And pictures she took at the prom

Knowing her name is enough…


Foks trotting globes rotting under my fingertips

Tappng for oil in veins

surely you wont think to hold it against me

It’s such an unusual name

Some one hoping to find

Her limbs in an auction online

Knowing her name is enough…

Ultima esperanza
