about

This song is based on a story in The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
Marie why are you so filthy
How have you torn your clothes
Ran off with the traveling salesman
He left you on the road
With unkempt hair and your body laid
Face down on the floor
The young ones laugh and the women scoff
And your mother joins their song

CHORUS:
My heart is filled with pity
My kiss is not for love
To you alone I’m guilty
For I cannot drink your cup

_to TURN (same as intro)

VERSE 2:
Marie, do you hear them laughing
Do you see them pick up stones
The children came out to mock you
But they thought you were alone
I’ll tell them of your broken heart
I’ll tell them of your pain
And when your story has been told
They’ll see that they’re the same

_to CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Marie, the children love you
Marie, they say your name
Marie, they see you dying
Marie, they’ll dress your grave
Marie, how are you guilty
Marie, where is your shame
Marie, why do they scorn you
Marie, what can you say
