sibyl vane lyrics – 18 summers

all art is at once surface and symbol

when the sound of her footsteps had died away
dorian locked the door and put the key in his pocket
he felt safe now
no one would ever look upon the horrible thing
no eye but his would ever see his shame

little girl
do you wanna play?
on the stage every day
i’ll show you the way

little girl
you’ll be the queen
on the cover of a magazine
you know what i mean

little girl, do you wanna be
famous for eternity
you can walk with me

little girl
do you wanna see the devil?
do you wanna see me?
this is the key

see the flaming third eye
in the middle of my forehead
