Tilt – Annie Segall lyrics

Annie exhibited incredible abilities
At a very tender age
Her mother's edict "It's a liability and
You must do as I say"
Annie was curious
Annie was sensuous
And she had an imagination
But under Victoria they called that dementia and
So they locked her... locked her away

She rustles down the hallway buttons corset bustle binding
They bound her to the bedposts and they shut her up with ether
She rustles down the hallway buttons corset bustle binding
She'll haunt this house forever her laughter's a reminder

Annie was taken out to the outskirts of town
Said "You are hysterical"
Her doctor's orders "Tie her up and calm her down,
Oh you know she isn't too well"
My dear you're delirious
My dear you're lascivious
And now we will commence to treat you
Laudanum sedating you
Bromide placating you
So they drugged her locked her away
