lyrics

She’s simon-pure with five tattoos
She’s always sorry for the times she screwed you

She falls in love at every grave
Historical princess
But only goes a fourth of the way and misses

She makes the jewelry worn by stars
A rabbit’s head on a string in candlestick bronze

Her skin a fountain in my reach
Like college in Georgia
Her eyes alone could make you weep

Victorian girl (x4)

She trips on every other stair
How do you think the rips in her stockings got there?

One drink and she spills everything
She likes to spread rumors
You're stuck on "Dreams" and she’s the chain

Victorian girl (x3)
My shadow is your historian

One spider in the dark and it’s pack up and move
But true crime’s like a soothing back rub for you
