Eat Me, Drink Me

Inspired by Eat Me, Drink Me by Marilyn Manson

I was invited to a beheading today,
Watched the headless hang
Upside down to drain.

I was invited to a beheading today,
The Red Queen smiled in her wasteland
I thought I was a butterfly
Next to her flame.

I was invited to a beheading today,
The trees in her courtyard are painted
In blood so I've seen.

I was invited to a beheading today,
A rush of panic and the lock
Has been broken.

I was invited to a beheading today,
Our star rushed in feeling like
A child looking like a woman.

I was invited to a beheading today,
It's no wonder our stage clothes
Have dreams to be famous.

I was invited to a beheading today,
I see my horror mirrored in
The sundown of her blank stare.

I was invited to a beheading today,
Our star lay upon her block
The blade gleaming in lust.

I was invited to a beheading today,
The Red Queen called for the grave
And blood to water her trees.

I was invited to a beheading today,
Our star's tears rushed in,
She'd been forecast with an attempt
To kill herself, but the ending didn't test well.

I was invited to a beheading today,
The blade was sated and
The ground screamed for more.

I was invited to a beheading today,
A rush of panic and I remember
This is only a game, this is only a game.

I was invited to a beheading today,
The Red Queen smiled, lifting her glass
From our star's bleeding neck.

I was invited to a beheading today,
And watched the Red Queen's men
Take my body away,
Hanging it upside down to drain.
