excerpt from Poe - Hey Pretty

Carrie had suggested we go for a ride in her new two door BMW coupe.
In the parking lot we slipped into her bucket seats. Carrie took over from there.
At nearly 90 miles per hour she zipped us up to that windy edge known to some as MulHolland, a sinuous road running the ridge of the Santa Monica Mountains.
Where she then proceeded to pump her vehicle in and out of turns.
Sometimes droping down to 50 miles per hour, only to immediately gun it back up to 90 again.
Fast, slow. Fast, fast. Slow.
Sometimes were wide turns. Sometimes a quick one.
She preferred the tighter ones, the sharp controlled jerk swinging left to right before driving back to the right.
Only so she could do it all over again.
Until after enough speed, and enough wind and more distance then I'd been prepared to expect.
Taking me to parts of the city I rarely think of and never visit, I heard her say...

Hey pretty, don't you wanna take a ride with me, through my world?
Hey pretty, don't you wanna kick and slide through my world?
Do you get the gist of the song now?

Well it's 3a.m. I'm out here driving again
Through the wicked winding streets of my world
I take a wrong turn break it but I'm too far gone
I've got a siren on my tale and that's not the fine
I'm looking for

I see a stairway so I follow it down
Into the belly of a whale
Where my secrets echo all around
You know me now but to do better than that
You've got to follow me
Boy I'm trying to show you where I'm at

Hey pretty
Don't you wanna take a ride with me?
Through my world
Hey pretty
Don't you wanna kick and slide with me
Through my world

Well I've got a mind full of wicked desings
I've got a non-stop-whole in my head-imagination
I can't forget I am a sole architect
I built the shadows here
I built the growl in the voice I fear
You know me now but to do better than that
You've got to follow me
Boy I'm triing to show you where I'm at

Hey pretty
Don't you wana take a ride with me?
Through my world
Hey pretty
Don't you wanna kick and slide with me
Through my world
Hey pretty
My pretty baby
Rock it through my world

Hey now
Can't you feel me longing
Hey now
Me
(You get the gist of the song now?)

Hey pretty don't you wanna take a ride with me?
