"She Took an Axe" as written by and Carlson Smith....
A young maiden with a demon in her soul,
A twisted mind with secrets to unfold.
An innocent face, a deceiving smile,
Under no suspicion, servant to Belial.

The axe came down...Blood all around...
She lurks possessed, without a sound,
Butchers her Dam when no one is around.
The next day her Sire feels her wrath,
She has no remorse in her merciless bloodbath.

[Chorus:]
She's Miss Lizzy, she feels no pain
The axe came down
She's Miss Lizzy, she strikes again,
The axe came down, blood all around

[Bridge x2]
Lizzy Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks,
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.

Now before the jury with a solemn face,
These legendary murders...she left not a trace.
Lizzy found it so simple to take their lives,
Today she walks free...Axe by her side...

[Chorus]
She's Miss Lizzy, she feels no pain
The axe came down
She's Miss Lizzy, she strikes again,
The axe came down, blood all around

She took an axe.

    General CommentThis song is about real killings that happened about 80 years ago. Lizzy Borden's parents were killed with an axe and lizzy was put on trial for the murders.

    she was let off because the court was convinced that she was too nice to have killed her parents. The case was seen by the public in much the same was that OJ Simpson's trail was in the 90s.

    Everyone knew Lizzy killed her parents and got away with it. this songs refrain: "
    Lizzy Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks,
    When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. "

    became a popular saying after the trail.
