This song was inspired by Flaubert's MADAME BOVARY. All views expressed in the song are those of Madame Bovary.


Money is for spending
Why bother pretending
Your body’s not for feeling.
Give it something good.

Bonbons are for eating
As long as he is treating
Satisfaction is too fleeting
To do what you should.

I’ve got illusions
I’m gonna lose 'em.
That’s what they’re there for.

So the way out
naivete’s not
always respectable.

I’ve got to be here
all flesh and blood and 3 dimensional.

I found the way out
my mama’s belly
without pretention (Just like you).

So Gimmegimmegimme gimme
the best of these dimensions.

Wild oats are for sowing
Secrets are for knowing
Just climb into a cab
And tell the man to drive.

Life is for the living
Rules are for the breaking
Your hearts will do the same
no matter how you try

I’ve got illusions
I’m gonna use them.
That’s what they’re there for.
