Off With Her Head

Ghost Town

Off with her head.

A dangerous upspring reflected on you,
Has the kids telling fairytales based of your lie.
The remorse of a princess who’s mocked by her father.
A revolt to her majesty she bows out for life.

Your highness, your highness, how low will you go?
Do you dare say it to the cities of the world?
He may doubt the truth of it, but nothing excuses it.
When a man’s pride is injured a drink or two is due.

I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.

Yeah, this downward spiral’s going viral,
In the colosseum people screaming’,
“Off with her head !”
I’ve never been so loyal, nor have I bowed so deeply.

Locked in the pillory, I’m paralyzed.
Is this a reflection of humanity?
No this mustn’t be the end
No this mustn’t be the end!
I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.
My entire life you were walking out.
Thousands times now I’ve lost count.
This bitter taste you’ve left me with.
My blood on your hands is your final gift.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break… It off… x2
A dangerous upspring reflected on you,
Has the kids telling fairytales based of your lie.
The remorse of a princess who’s mocked by her father.
A revolt to her majesty she bows out for life.

I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.
