lyrics

Black gums drinkin laudanum
her rotten teeth falling out of her gums
beckons with her crooked hand
little trails of vapour coming out of the sand

Dark girl with the darkest curls
leads you down to the underworld
lamp flickers beneath the bowl
her hearts a lump of coal you should see her soul

no no, don't you follow
besides that gin shop hollow
no tomorrow
in the alley of sweet sweet sorrow

Shes a serpent
shes a siren
twisted liar

on the bench beneath the pale glow
little orphans come to see the show
bleached skin, bleach blue eyes
got a weapon in between her thighs

here it comes with the greatest of ease
soon daylight makes your stomach churn
in the water amongst the reeds
dragging you down with her little black seeds
