She won't mind they always said
A women's touch can cure no man
In beauty liesa sticky game
Without your words, you are nothing.

Sybil vane was ill.
Sybil vane was ill.
But she knows now that shes falling
And she will say to you,
"i'll better prove myself.
I'd better prove myself."

Try to hide all your sins.
Write a letter to make ammends
But shes not that tough to let you roam around her.
But she is not that tough because
she is gone...but you.

You are the greyest of them all.
Yeah you...your boastful tounge has bit them all.
And after all was said and done,
The pleasure was all yours to run.

You dragged her down and said,
"Oh you are such a fool.
Where's your stamina at?"
She says, "It's lost in you."
You showed her life beyond acts and
Now she lusts for you.

Oh there was no fair warning
No, there was no fair warning
But her heart it just stopped
And you grow weary of nites crawling
of nights crawling
deep into your breathless eyes
Made you soon realize
That sybil vane she spoke no lies

Soon figure out that everything was true.
Sybil Vain inspired and she'll do the same for you.
With her jaded head, she couldn't have it all.
Remember now, she died
holding too much thought in her mind
for you.

    General CommentClearly it is a reference to the character of the same name in Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray", and maybe about people like that. I dunno, it's just a great song.

    General CommentIf you've read "The Picture of Dorian Gray", this song becomes pretty self-explanatory. It describes The relationship between Sybil Vane and Dorian Gray and it ultimately became the beginning of their downfall.
