Artist's Description

I used a royalty free clipart I purchased and some of my own photos and textures to make a new piece who’s title is inspired by the Tori Amos song Daisy Dead Petals. The lyrics are below because I can’t find a recording online. UPDATE there is a recording in the comments thanks to bdazzled!

daisy dead petals
that is her name
she’s in a phone booth phase, so
underneath the shade of a peppermint tray
she can turn it out with a heel on
she just rides into town
knowing what they’ll say
knowing they’re around the corner
got a crack in
got a crack in some strange places

daisy dead petals
that is her name
so maybe she tastes like a hamburger maid, well
these dead petals, honey, brought me here
she said, “these dead petals, honey, brought me here”

dancing on a dime,
hearing mother cry
maybe she’s around the corner

got a crack in
got a crack in some strange places
on my back with
on my back with some dirty dishes

falling down, falling down
all over the river
falling down, falling down
falling down…

wish what i’m feeling could
go on like this forever
falling down, falling down
falling down…

and since we’re down
might as well stay
might as well fry some eggs
and wave to the shade of the peppermint tray
she’s a new friend not a skeleton
to ride into town
knowing what they’ll say
knowing she tastes like a hamburger maid, but
“these dead petals, honey, brought me here”
she said, “these dead petals, honey, brought me here”
