Track Name: Ella Mental (the Girl on the Moon)
There is a girl, (she lives on the moon),
she doesn't take any phone calls from anyone -
she's a disconnected telephone.
She's like an all night bohemian, dancing for a dawn,
(the dawn that mightn't show it's face round here).

Not for a beast with two backs, her heart's a different shade that that.
She can see the sun, and it doesn't really rise or fall.
So she opens up, (just like a letter), returns to sender a stark reminder,
she'd be grateful if you leave her alone.

She's Ella Mental (the girl on the moon).
Sentimental.
Cuckoo.

She's a gun for hire in the middle of a knife fight.
She's a stone-cold killer if you're looking for the wrong kind of fun.
Second to none, (she lives in her head).
Wouldn't dream to trade off conversations with white knights,
(on the battlefield of lust), for all night delirium.
Romancing like the dawn mightn't show it's face again.

Not for a comet, neptune, or the stars.
Nor for the boy with an electric guitar.
She can see the sun, and it doesn't really rise or fall.
So she opens up, (just like a letter), returns to sender a stark reminder,
she'd be grateful if you leave her alone.

It's all foreseen in the things she dreams.
All that she can see is that somehow it's written in the stars.
All that she can think about.

She's Ella Mental, (the girl on the moon)
Sentimental.
Cuckoo.

Longing to grow her wings, (fly around tonight),
longing to feel she's a winged being.
