lyrics

Painted faces wash off in the rain
Living in an advertising campaign, every day, every day
Getting ready in hurried desperation
She can't leave the house without her face, without her face,
without her face on

Just a lick lick lick of paint
Just a trick trick trick of light
Just a lick lick lick of paint
Making weary eyes bright like they used to be
Like they used to be

Say bye bye to the blemish
Wave farewell to the fading youth of yesterday

Painted faces masters of disguise
Spiders legs are coming out your eyes, lashes of lies, lashes of lies
There's a distinct line along the chin
Where the colours aren't quite blended in, blended in, blended in

Just a lick lick lick of paint
Just a trick trick trick of light
Just a lick lick lick of paint
Making weary eyes bright
Just a lick lick lick of paint
Just a trick trick trick of light
Just a lick lick lick of paint
Ladies of the night will not grow old
We will not grow old

Say bye bye to the blemish
Wave farewell to the beauty spot
Say bye bye, bye bye
Tip your hat to the fading youth of yesterday
Of yesterday

Painted faces hiding from us all
We're all dancing at the masquerade ball
Painted faces wash off in the rain
Oh the shame
Oh the shame.
