    That's right! How many bands out there sell dresses!? These ones are sleek and slinky, so be ready to draw some wandering eyes. All black with yellow ink. The fabric is delicate and light. Note that the length of the dress is provocatively short. Made locally in Albuquerque by a fine craftsman and gentle soul.

We’ve been thinking without our heads, holding on to our ideals at night. Little tingles still exist when I think about your lips. But you have to let me go—you say you love me, but, you know, you know, you know. We’ve been pulling out our teeth by trying not to speak. Bloody hands and bloody nose, ‘cause at night to him I go. But I stopped on the street, with a scar upon my cheek. I left you in the middle of the night—you couldn’t find me in the morning. Jumped a train, thinking that I might go to the next town without warning. I said goodbye without a kiss—don’t worry, I won’t be missed. I’ve been dreaming about the lies we whisper in the dark. Holding on till the light shows us who we are. ‘Cause the truth is within, a burning in my skin. We can’t fight this anymore, bleeding red, an open sore, I clench the cliff until you tore my hands and let me fall to the core.
