I am the disenchanted princess
My kingdom is falling down all around me
My sky is Shakespeare blue and my moon is melancholy
My trees are all crying
My story is being told backwards
Happily ever after was so long, long ago
My Prince has tired of being Charming and has given up on saving me
He couldn't save me from myself
I am the wicked witch
I am the poison
I was asleep for a long time
But now I'm awake and I can see
The birds won't sing for me
There is no magic!
No spell to make my life wonderful
I can't blame my evil parents anymore
It's me who's hurting me
I keep running through the forest, wanting him to tear my heart out
It's too heavy for me!
Where is the wolf when you need him?
I want to be gobbled up
I want to be devoured and consumed
I want to hide in his belly, as heavy as a rock, where no one can touch me!
I wish I were an animal!
I want the gift of a conscienceless life
My conscience is strangling me
It's hard to be a good girl
The path through the woods is not so easy to follow
The nice people I meet along the way
are not so nice
and they're jealous of my lovely, red hood
I'd rather take my chances with the wolves
The woods look so inviting and I want to howl at the moon!
I want to run free and be wild
Why do we always turn the beasts into men anyway?
They're so much more as beasts
And weren’t we all beasts…once upon a time?
