lyrics

In 1859 I went to his house. He saw something in my shadow, something crawling out of my mouth. He captured this “ectoplasm” to prove a point. He held my hand, my wrist, called us a dovetail joint.

He saw the future in my iris and the past in my palm. He put sugar
in my tea, I felt strange but calm. When I saw him turn the key, I should have grabbed the knife, I should have stormed the door, I should
have run for my life.

His eye turned into a machine, his hand into a wheel. He said he would only steal my light, it wouldn’t hurt, I wouldn’t feel — the moment that
my image got trapped in the box, the moment that my soul would forever be lost.

When I left his house, I couldn’t feel my feet. I couldn’t feel the ground, or my heart beat — I could only feel three shillings cold in my purse, that would never mend my heart, that would never lift this curse.

What can you buy with three shillings to your name? Not the moon, not the stars, not love, not fame.
