If You Stand On The Surface Of The Planet Named After The Goddess Of Love

If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
You will burn in a caustic fire
You will melt into the soil
And evaporate as you boil

If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
You will char like a candle wick
You will wear a sulfuric shroud
And suffocate under the clouds

You’ll never see the truth or beauty
Imagined by those bohemians
You’ll wish you were back in Kansas City
Far from anything Venusian

If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
You will flatten like a flounder
You will swim in an acid lake
And emerge corroded and flaked

If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
You will blister in the Kelvin
You will expand and contract
And bleed and burst and collapse

You’ll never feel the passion
As it’s sold by painters and poets
You’ll long for the embrace of Long Island
Far from our sister planet

If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love
If you stand on the surface of the planet named after the Goddess of Love…
