If it’s a fairy tale…
Then I shall play with a golden ball,
and roll it till the puppets fall
All their mirrors shall break in two
when the clocks start ticking as they used to do
I shall have the old light here
and their stage shall disappear
Oh, I shall wear a silken gown
as I watch them all go down, down, down

I’ll be your continental bride,
we’ll feast there side by side
Champagne, crystal and candlelight,
at the ball where we shall watch the puppets fall, tonight.
Toujours, le Vieux Monde sera notre amour’

If it’s a fairy tale…
Then I shall play with a red, red rose
till the puppets are strangled by their prose
It shall be the old moon that I greet
when the ground crumbles beneath their feet
All their shadows shall whither like lies
while I watch the old sun rise
Oh, I shall wear a silken gown
as I watch them all go down, down, down

I’ll be your continental bride,
we’ll feast there side by side
Champagne, crystal and candlelight,
at the ball where we shall watch the puppets fall, tonight
Toujours, le Vieux Monde sera notre amour
Recasser, retrouver, retourner
Toujours
We’ll cut the wire,
those whose limbs have turned to wood will stoke the fire
while the others call the puppeteer a liar
and each time we rise one step higher
Never
will an imposed reign last forever
Toujours
le Vieux Monde sera notre amour
Recasser, retrouver, retourner
Toujours…

  1. “I tell you true, of the poetry of Paradise is this Way, The Castle pumps out its mass-manufactured ‘pubrish’ while the poetess remains true to The Art, The Soul!

    No coerced audience, no celebrity listing or appearances, no Manufactured Petro-Chemical Environmental Pollutant Plastics covering that which is real, Truth! Just the substance of raw living brought to The Uncommon Common Man!” ~ Týr Mórríghan
