I think it's about a Sleeping Beauty with insomnia. I just went to Disney World and met some put-upon princesses in Norway. Like you do.


You cut your neck open and bleed on the page Am F
And we seek to interpret the shapes that it makes Dm E
You know what, you're bleeding, Am
I think that that's all that it means F E

Could you prick your finger and let the spell take Am F Dm
Let the briar grow over your keep E Am
Let the sun set and rise ere you wake F Dm
Do you think, do you think you could sleep E Am
Am F E
Pick any card from a deck full of spades
And tell your grim fortune with eyes full of fate
The hanged man is watching
But I find I must look away

The morning arrives and your eyes are still open
You take up your gauntlets and sword and the menu
The chef has requested your heart on a platter Am F
But I am no huntsman today. Dm E
