Dresden Dolls, The - 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...
Ultima...

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

    Downloading doves on your fancy computer
    You're shooting for love in the dark
    Hey boss, 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 doesn't get around much

    But she is hoping someday
    Somebody will take her away

    Now that you got her address 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 it's not happening to you

    Don't be afraid of the dark ages darling
    You may have to wait, your lover is coming
    With mixes of Marlyn songs
    And pictures she took at the throne
    Knowing her name is enough, Ultima

    Foxtrotting, globe trotting under your fingertips
    Tapping for oil in vain
    Surely you won't think to hold that against me
    It's such an unusual name

    Someone is hoping to find
    Her limbs in an auction online
    Knowing her name is enough
    Ultima Esperanza, Ultima Esperanza

    this song was written for an old friend of mine. Her dad named her last hope because he had all girls and Ultima was his last hope for a boy.
