Tori Amos - Smokey Joe Lyrics




[Pip I]

Smokey Joe you're calling at the station,
"Love, it's one of lifes complications"
I did not ask for this
"Oh but Love yes you did"

Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me

[Pip II]

It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I]

Smokey Joe hey what's a revelation
"That one's past is not a destination
It is a road for fools
Who need empty approvals"

[Pip II]

My dark twin
The annihilating Feminine
Does not need
Civilizing

[Pip I]

Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me

[Pip II]

It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I]

Smokey Joe can you pass the pipe
You have been blessed now go be wise.
"It is a coward who will say he's not afraid
Of dying when clearly he is potently alive"

[Pip II]

A songless robin
She became
He stole my sister Clitorides.
These silken rubber gloves
Choking his vitriolic tongue

[Pip I]

Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege
Maybe it terrifies me
This quiet siege

[Pip II]

It's too easy
It's too easy
To wish you harm
It's too easy
You through black ice
At the bottom of the river

[Pip I and Pip II]

Smokey Joe is calling at the station
Calling at the station

  6. Valentino Miller

    She emotes so fucking fantastically. I visualise "red rum" in this song.

  7. winogirlll

    Love this song but always a little unclear what it's about. Tori songs do that to me a lot. That's why I love her because I struggle sometimes to figure it out or just make something up.

    [Pip I]

    Smokey Joe you're calling at the station,
    If I kill him there are complications
    I did not ask for this
    "Oh but Love yes you did"

    Maybe it terrifies me
    This quiet siege
    Maybe it terrifies me

    [Pip II]

    It's too easy

    To wish you harm
    It's too easy
    You through black ice
    At the bottom of the river

    Smokey Joe is Hades and he stole Clyde/Clitorides (representing Persephone). Pip, our warrior Athena, is running out to get her back.

  10. Astariol

    Yep :)

    Smokey Joe can you pass the pipe
    you have been blessed now go be wise.

    one of the wonderful things about Ms. Amos is she has so many great songs ... i bought " American Doll Posse " when it first came out years ago ... i wasn't crazy about this album, with the exception of a few songs ... i gave it a second chance a few days ago and i cannot believe i would overlook so many wonderful songs ...

  12. paulvesovich

    @dicksr4myfrienz yes she does

  13. dicksr4myfrienz

    @paulvesovich no she doesn't...

  14. PICKLE Marz

    One of the most haunting songs...beautiful.

  15. paulvesovich

    at 2:32 she says "Smokey Joe hey can you pass the pipe"

  16. Claudia Avilés

    where do you hear that?

  17. paulvesovich

    she does say pass the pipe

  18. paulvesovich

    i agree!

  19. paulvesovich

    one of her best!

  20. Claudia Avilés

    i didn't mean to make it 4:20. the song lasts 4:19 and the title i inserted adds 1 sec.
    what does "420 smokey" stands for?
