delicate and fragile are the
wings of things unseen
the fragrance of a dream
a whisper and a scream
together, threaded, forever, felt
like fingers on an escapade
a whirling quest for glory
up a tower of no-one's business

and it's sad, so sad
degenerate prince charming
to a fragment of your nightmares
and I don't understand
this fucking fascination
with a world where all is dead

I once knew how to love
I learned it from a lullaby
moonbeams stretched across a sky
that bore my weight so I could fly
the leaves that crackle underfoot
are nothing but a memory
of days gone by and I want to know,
when did I lose what's left of me?

hansel and gretel thought it fine
to lose a little piece of mind
when all the castles in the sky
just kept on falling down
hickory dickory dock
snow white was locked up in a clock
a dock, a sock, don't mock me, sir,
the future's history

how far down does the rabbit hole go?
will I ever know? will time and science show?
cinderella's broken heels in shattered fragments on the walk
dripping blood like water from a sky where gods don't talk

and it's sad, so sad
degenerate prince charming
to a fragment of your nightmares
and I can't let it go
this fucking desperation
for a world where I can know
