Lillie Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I saw a woman chewing with nothing in her mouth
Her teeth were in her hands and her tongue was hanging out
Then she started drooling and caught it in a cup
The cup was full of pennies, it spilled when she got up

Some guy is in the shadows grabbing empty air
He could be catching butterflies if there were any there
All the freaks are not inside the tents
Some pay to come and be in the audience

I saw a great big guy who had a little gun
He pulled it out and smiled and then he sucked his thumb
His wife was standing by with a leather leash
Fastened to a child who cried beside their feet

The scary one is back with clothes so white and clean
And her face that's coated with a quarter inch of cream, cold cream
She's the one who freaks the freaks out

Lillie, little Lille, Lillie, little Lillie, Lillie, chilling Lillie
Lillie, with her white face
Delicate Lille is stainless lonely and

She is too white
Like a face in a flashlight with teeth that might bite
She is too white
Like dice rolling snakeyes in headlights at night
She is too white
Like a corpse in the sunshine or eyes in a fight

There's a spot a spot on my glove
On my glove I know
No, no, maybe it was make 'em runny
Make 'em runny, honey
Doilies, doilies, where have all the doilies gone?

Roses will whither and die
Along with the lace and the lies
Nothing is nicer than death
At matching the bad and the best

Heh, heh, he hated me, he hated me
And hate is white and hate is hot
But I'll not even have disdain for him
Not even a stain on a memory looked up to

Lacking all respect for him
I'm blacking out the specks of decent thoughts
That lingerin' me and leave only white
White, peaceful white, calm white swans

Silently flying in the snow look down and see
The bleached bones of a noble knight
Who died trying to save his lady
His lovely white, lady who brought her man milk
In the moonlight but it was too late, too late, too late he said

Scratch out the pin holes
Open up the sores
Don't look out the window
White hatred's at the door

And he tried to make me dirty
Make me dirty make me dirty
Touch her, someone, touch her, someone
Reach out to her, touch her soiled soul
