Gothic Lolita
Emilie Autumn Lyrics


How old are you?
I'm older than you'll ever be
I've been dead a thousand years
And lived only two or three
I don't mind telling you
My life was ended by your hand
The kind of murder where nobody dies
But I don't suppose you'd understand

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

Thank you, kind sirs
You've made me what I am today
A bundle of broken nerves
A mouthful of words
I'm still afraid to say
I don't mind telling you
Now that I'm old enough to love
I couldn't begin to even if
My pretty life depended on it
And funny thing, it does

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your anti-American dream

I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your worst nightmare
Now scream

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won't arrest you
The world won't detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn't do

I'm Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I'm not even legal
I'm just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it's my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

The message of this song should never be ignored. It's not Lolita the style (I thought it was when I was in middle school) but after reading Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita I understood how in depth this song goes about a child being sexually abused by grown ups and losing their child hood because they are confused and manipulated into thinking something like that is ok. Lolita in the book was a pretty little girl who thought she had an "adult" mindset (what with kissing boys and losing her V to a boy her age at summer camp) but then is manipulated into some relationship with her step father. She had no where to go, no one to turn to, and wasn't allowed to go to school for a very long time because the perv wanted her to himself. The song breaks my heart, no child should ever go through this.

It's the fox!

Lolita complex is used to refer to paedophilia where an adult man likes little girls

@Roxy Woodward Yep, and worse when a kid who's been through similar stuff reads the book/watches the film and it further confuses them and reinforces their erroneous belief of their own culpability...

The awful thing is that even now, a lot of people interpret the Kubrick movie - and perhaps the book - as a poor man, being manipulated by a vixen who pretends to be innocent, but is in fact totally adult and 'wise beyond her years'. That's still a narrative we hear too often: about how a teenager 'manipulates' or 'seduces' a grown-up man. It's not his fault, he was seduced by her! Not even considering the fact that he's supposed to be the adult, and she's still a child, even if she's pretending to be an adult. Lot's of kids can pretend to be adults. I know I did. Doesn't mean they're ready to do what adults do.

Ive never seen the book nor movie, i was trying to figure out what the song was about. After reading @Maniacaish post and listening, it makes sense. That is horrid

One line really grabbed me. “So it’s my fault?” How many times have victims of assault, be they male, female, young, old, prudish, sexually active, sober, drunk, any adjective you can think of, have been blamed for their trauma?
