She sits alone in her fathers shop
With her father's words and needs
She cannot have what he cannot rule
So lonely she must be

She watches through frosted glass
From the window sill
Sits and waits and holds her breath
Carries out his will

Daydreaming again
She is scheming again

She listens to the radio
To reach outside these walls
Hearing songs of love by girls
Empassioned by their words

She slowly molds a quiet plan
To break out her cage
She lies in wait when they're alone
Waits to spring her trap

She dares to dream again
She is scheming again

Accross the wooden boards
In bare feet she creeps
Careful as a mouse
That they do not creak
She sneaks into his room
In the darkest black
The moon streaks on his bony face
No courage does she lack

So she grabs the pillow
And she smothers him the night
And as he kicks and struggles
It is a dreadful sight
But she presses down with all her strength
To remove his blight
And when he's still and all is still
She knows she's done right

No more dreaming again
No more dreaming again
