Your lipstick smear across your face
Now toss your hair in dirty grace
Pink leather strap on your guitar
Now spread your legs - how bright you are
Mmmmmm
They all know your name
Collie, claw your way to fame...
There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
There's a star in her mind yeah she shows it
There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
A star in her mind yeah she grows it...
And every evening the sun comes up when she goes down
And every evening the mud fills up her bridal gown
The little girl inside of you
Has made her dreams come true
And tonight you take the stage
You wear a dress of blood and lace
You left a stain where you have kneeled
But collie, you're still invisible...
Your lipstick smear across your face
Now toss your hair in dirty grace
Pink leather, strap on your guitar
Now spread your legs just like a star...
And I'd like to eat her breasts and know god
And I'd like to taste her flesh and grow hard
And I'd like to eat her breasts and grow god
And I'd like to suck her breath and blow hot...

    General CommentI think the cannibalism is symbolic: The destruction of one's idol to become them. Devour them, literally or metaphorically, and you will take what power they have, be it beauty, fame, luxuriousness. For example, Idi Amin eating that guy's liver: Stealing the strength of a rival through consumption. Here it's a fan and the rock star he/she/it stalks.

    General CommentThis song is supposedly Jarboe's observations on one's path to stardom. It's kind of odd to find techno on a swans album, but it fits nonetheless.

    The last four lines remind me of Young God in particular; it seems to be about the same type of thing (murder with cannibilism...and in this case some rape thrown in there too?) Adds a MUCH creepier end to the song.

    I wonder who "Collie" is?
