Past trees the fairies are flyin
Past trees with rose bushes in
The child was spoilt Victorian
The child was spoilt Victorian


Spoilt Victorian Child


Sugar and cakes appear mean
Sitting at the table
Tigers pop-up from books


Spoilt Victorian Child


Let`s take it ten years on
You`re looking back from then
Under rough grey blankets
Thread loose stained grey blanket


Spoilt Victorian Child


C.L.O. - Pedia
E.N.C.Y.C.L.O. - Pedia


Musical chairs rouge cheeks he remembers
Thru` the aqueduct of five years
Spoilt Victorian Child shall avoid reflection
The child was spoilt Victorian


Spoilt Victorian Child


Mirrors can`t hid the toxic of disfigured Poxes


Spoilt Victorian Child


Past trees the fairies are flyin
Past trees with rose bushes in
The butterfly shrugs to fly in
Sugar and iced cakes appear mean


The child was spoilt Victorian
The child was spoilt Victorian


Spoilt Victorian Child
C.L.O. - Pedia


And you know that servants keep their order knowledge
And as you walk in on the footsteps steed babe
In the encrusted green unwild
You know you are a spoilt Victorian child

    General CommentA fantasy world coming out of a child? Expectations from a spoiled child? I really don't know. Mark E. Smith is truly a creative man.

    General CommentI suspect this may be about Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and his 'pedia' obsession with Alice Pleasance Liddell who was unquestionably a Victorian child.
