A girl once lived in a basement Stuck in her own entrapment Living off scraps and presents Scraping away at her patience If she squinted just right She could see some daylight And what a delight it would be To be outside Just playing all day And laughing away Oh, what a delight it would be A girl once lived in a basement Self-imprisoned in darkness Waiting for horse and carriage To whisk her away from this sadness If she wished really hard And sang out real loud Then some passerby’s bound to Pass and hear the sound But nobody cares Cause no one’s out there So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead If she wished really hard And sang out real loud Then some passerby’s bound to Pass and hear the sound But nobody cares Cause no one’s out there So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead

I’ve been playing backgammon With my eyes on the floor Facing myself hiding Stay while I play the pawn I don’t like when they come and stare I don’t like when they try to tear me away I’ve been seeing monsters At 3am they come out and twirl my hair Shivering, I know they’re waiting Put the blanket over my head and face the wall I don’t like when they come and stare I don’t like when they try to tear me away Tear me down Tear me up I don’t like when they come and stare I don’t like when they try to tear me away Oh, if I had known I would’ve played the pawn

A part of me feels so happy But the rest feels so, so sad And maybe all this is worth it For seconds of what we once had All despite of what I know A part me feels enamored But the rest feels so betrayed And maybe this time I’m cornered I’ll remember how I was made All in spite of what I know It’s tough to see where eyes can slowly grow You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking (Cha-ching cha-ching) You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking (Cha-ching cha-ching) You’re taking me out of a brand new box Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks You’re taking me out of a brand new box And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks I stand in a row of millions And they all look just like me So if she feels so familiar Why can’t you just get up and leave? All despite of what I can see It’s tough when your own soul is just a dream You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking (Cha-ching cha-ching) You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking (Cha-ching cha-ching) You’re taking me out of a brand new box Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks You’re taking me out of a brand new box And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic? When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic? When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic It’s fantastic, you’ll see!

I guess that it’s all over The credits are rolling Lights are shining So that must mean that life goes on Whether you know it or you don’t The end’s never deceiving When the beginning has no meaning I see the big picture at last Little did I know I was cast Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out And it’s slowly getting to me I won’t let you pass right through me I jolt up and start packing Avoiding all eye contact and smiling I try to walk fast so I can breathe While you’re left behind in the stampede I turn around in time to see… Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out And it’s slowly getting to me I won’t let you pass right through me You’re so hard for me to handle I don’t know how to dismantle You are so unusual Despite all misconceptions I saw to your true intentions And this is what the screen won’t show Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt I figured you out And it’s slowly getting to me I won’t let you pass right through me

Weaving through the waves of an ocean Singing muse tells a tale of misfortune Girls and girls in a long line Before her stands a man Who holds the world and her life In his hands, such hands, if they were good But they command this land There you are and here I am

If the world is a stage Then I’m here to upstage it In its masquerade I’m here to unveil That you are no one Until you become someone Then the rest will come So dance, dance for now Dance till your shoes wear out Just dance, dance around Dance till the sand runs out Dance till the sand runs out If the world is a maze Then I’m here to graze it In this serenade I’m here to amaze, well You are no one Until you become someone Then the rest will come So dance, dance for now Dance till your shoes wear out Just dance, dance around Dance till the sand runs out I’m not stupid I just don’t care I’ll dance for now Dance till my shoes wear out I’ll dance, dance around Dance till the sand runs out Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance Just dance

I see you’re having trouble sleeping Keep me up or I’ll be dreaming of you And pretty soon I’ll be worth keeping But for now baby keep dreaming that day will come That day will come I see you’re having trouble breathing Let me help you out of all that clothing And like a snake I’ll slither on your skin But only give enough to make you want it again I’ll make you want me again I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again I see you’re having trouble smiling Let me show you something you won’t soon forget And as I’m staring at the dresser I’m hoping there’s no evil looming overhead Cause everything you said Was always on a bed I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again Baby I’ve traveled the world and taught things you’ll never learn On weekends I’ll be your girl, Monday through Friday you’re dirt To me

Standing on a corner looking through you Smart and salivating like a wolf would Don’t rest your head quite yet Or you might regret it Eyes that glimmer whether it’s day or night Nails filed and a sly smile ready to strike Tip toeing closer you should stay inside And dim the lights Cause she’ll be knocking down your door And she’ll be storming down the hall And she’ll be burning down your home And she’ll be laughing through it all And everybody else will know No fury like a woman scorned In plain sight she’s holding tight and waiting Oh, when she swings her hips and moves her lips She’s lying But by the time you realize what she’s doing You’ll probably have just a few seconds to think it through Cause she’ll be knocking down your door And she’ll be storming down the hall And she’ll be burning down your home And she’ll be laughing through it all And everybody else will know No fury like a woman scorned Satisfied and just in time for dinner She takes a bite and soon the lights get dimmer The room spins, a man grins Who cares who’ll win? If you’re both dying Then who’s keeping score? Cause she’ll be knocking down your door And she’ll be storming down the hall And she’ll be burning down your home And she’ll be laughing through it all And everybody else will know No fury like a woman scorned

I’m not the kinda girl who finds it hard to say no I’m not the kinda girl who’ll sit aside and be ignored I’m not the kinda girl who’ll wait around for you to show I’m not the kinda girl who’ll play until you’re bored Well I don’t have this feeling for nothing But this I’m not the kinda girl who finds it hard to say yes I’m not the kinda girl who’s always serious I’m not the kinda girl who’ll try hard to impress I’m not the kinda girl who needs to undress Well I don’t have this feeling for nothing But this

You can’t escape it all I am making paper planes I watch them fly inside my bedroom If I unlock the window pane Will they fly or fall in this monsoon? Pick up the pieces Pieces of glass Whisper your wishes Wish it goes fast You can’t escape it all I am flying through airwaves I hope to glide higher than the moon Will things ever really change? When I slide out of this cocoon Pick up the pieces Pieces of glass Whisper your wishes Wish it goes fast You can’t escape it all

I’m running out of patience So hear me out I’ve been stuck behind this silence For too long I have waited to speak Now here’s my chance But my voice is too weak for this I’m running out of sympathy When I’m doubt Just one glance is all I really need To see what you once were and now have become How stories changed how they all made me numb, so numb Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get away for a day Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get out of your way I’m going out, I’m leaving Out of this grout I will be gone before the morning It’s not even worth it to tell you at all You might not even notice that I am gone, so gone Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get away for a day Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get out of your way If you got it in yourself, guarding your cell Judging by your luck, how you gonna look When you’re locked up? Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get away for a day Take me somewhere else I’ve been trying to get out of your way

In front of a million pairs of eyes I squint to see beyond the shining lights There is a face that I recognize Time stands still for a moment before it flies Frozen in place I can’t help but stare I blink and it’s like you were never there I’m running but I am just chasing After a ghost I am haunting I exit out of the front entrance I see you turn the corner and disappear There’s no use in chasing the intangible But I can’t help but run after you
