lyrics

Don’t be afraid of the sounds that we made
Banging on your bedroom door
We were looking for Linus who has hepatitis
He was sleeping on the pharmacy floor
His little sister the one who can’t say mister
Cause her tongue is always hitting her teeth
She woke up dancing put into a trance
By the devil and the deep blue sea

Her name is Lilly but we all call her Billy
And her hair’s too red to be real
She swears that it’s hers it’s been like that since birth
But those pictures all got lost or got burned
Well I kissed her once we were both on the run
But her tongue kept hitting my teeth
When I backed up she threw me a punch
And was laughing when I started to bleed

Do you miss the days when we ran wild
Let the Green Line take us home
In the morning we would talk a while
And I’d strip your memories for my songs

Linus was found in a heap on the ground
Lilly let the music play
She gathered him up with the pills and the dust
Like the candy of some twisted parade
Well he’s just fine he’s back on the wine
They both get a little bit week
If they ever get caught listening to the song
The devil and the deep blue sea
