lyrics

The sun still rose
the day after she died
the streets still moved
and history proves
no one's safe alive

The fields grew wild
watched them burn
crimson licked the skies
a flashing hate
for broken plates

And they all took charge
and they all drew swords

And they all took off her head

A brocade dress made a mess
of strawberries and cream
we all want sweet and we all want silk
and we all want what she dreamed

And the bread was dry
and the cake was high

And we all took off her head
