​Such A Scream

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the album Bone Machine (1992) and on the live album Glitter And Doom Live (2009).

Well, pale face said to the eyeball kid
She just goes clank and boom and steam
A halo, wings, horns and a tail
Shoveling coal inside my dreams

There are no laws
She's made of cream
She's such a scream

Qui bon tres bien, nails in the cement
A Donnie gal from mortal clay
The plow is red, the well is full
Inside the dollhouse of her skull

A cheetah coat
Fills up with steam
She's such a scream

All crooked lines, her fireplace
A milktrain so clean, machine gun haste
You'll ride the only wall of shame
And drag that chain across the state

Her lips are red
She is the queen
She's such a scream
