Alternate "Ultima Esperanza" lyrics?
« on: August 05, 2007, 12:36:41 PM »

I know the Dolls have lyrics on the site, but I've heard at least two performances (I believe both are from AutomaticJoy) with different lyrics. Does anybody know these alternate lyrics?

(EDIT: I just checked, I've been using the NYC performance at AutomaticJoy 'coz the San Francisco performance isn't recorded all too clearly, at least compared to the NYC one. I still can't tell what she's singing, though XD)

I think I've got most of the lyrics right, but there are a couple of lines near the end I'm unsure about.

Quote
Don't be afraid of the dark ages darling
The stage has been set and your bride will be waiting
With pictures of ____ and songs
And pictures she took at her prom
( ?? )
Knowing her name is enough:
Ultima Esperanza...

Folks trotting globes running under your fingers
Tapping for oil in vain
How can you possibly hold that against me?
It's such an unusual name ( ?? )

But she is hoping to find
Her legs in an auction online
Knowing her name is enough:
Ultima Esperanza...

And on a side note, has anybody got chords for the song? (I doubt it, but it never hurts to ask.)

I have that version, but I've seen a variant on Songmeanings.net.
Although I can't actually quote it to you,because i can't get on the site.

I do not want to live to archive my own life.
I see it everywhere around me, especially with the popularity of web diaries, forums, and cell phones that take pictures.
I do not want to fall into the subtle trap of truly believing I Blog Therefore I Am.
