I get that Taylor Momsen is all goth rock and about the music these days, but there are some things better left the imagination. A new video titled “The Words” goes along with The Pretty Reckless‘ newest track, “Under The Water.” In the video, 19-year-old Momsen is stark naked.
Lay my head under the water, lay my head under the sea. Excuse me, sir, am I your daughter? Won’t you take me back and see?
It’s not a time for being younger and all my friends are enemies. And if I cried unto my mother, she wasn’t there for me.
Broken lines across my mirror show my face all red and bruised. And though I screamed and screamed, no one came running. I wasn’t safe from you.
Don’t let the water drag you down, don’t let me drown in the waves. If I could be found, I could be one that was saved.
Lay my head under the water. Alone I pray for calmer seas. And when I wake from this dream with chains all around me, I’ve never been free.
Momsen speaks the words of the band’s track of their Hit Me Like A Man album.
