about

Inspired by the novel Carrie by Stephen King. A single from the upcoming album Suburban Gothic.

“They were still all beautiful and there was still enchantment and wonder, but she had crossed a line and now the fairy tale was green with corruption and evil.”
― Stephen King, Carrie

lyrics

Basked in spotlights
Drowned in red
Now in hindsight
What else did you think you’d find
Crown of plastic
On my head
I feel fantastic
But I wish that you could just be kind

New order running here, time for a new reign
New sense of power running bloody through my veins
I only want my mother, I’m only seventeen
I only want to sleep, but, baby, long live the queen

I’d do fine on my own
If you’d just leave me alone
In my room with my crown
I think I could be okay
I could swim in the flood
I could bathe here in the blood
In my room with my crown
If you’d all just go away

Draped in moonlight
Virgin bride
Pretty tonight
And don’t you think that it’s my turn
Sew the stitches
Down the side
We’re the witches
But you’re the one that’s gonna burn

New order running here, time for a new reign
New sense of power running bloody through my veins
I only want my mother, I’m only seventeen
I only want to sleep, but, baby, long live the queen

I’d do fine on my own
If you’d just leave me alone
In my room with my crown
I think I could be okay
I could swim in the flood
I could bathe here in the blood
In my room with my crown
If you’d all just go away

I’d do fine on my own
If you’d just leave me alone
In my room with my crown
I think I could be okay
I could swim in the flood
I could bathe here in the blood
In my room with my crown
If you’d all just go away

New order running here, time for a new reign
New sense of power running bloody through my veins
I only want my mother, I’m only seventeen
I only want to sleep, but, baby, long live the queen
