Behind the veil skin is pale as a virgin
Fear velvet red drapes the bed like a curtain
Mix the elixir she drinks from her vial
Give her the river that soothes her denial

What have I got to do with it
What have I got to do with it

Far from the world that she's in
Away from all she resents
This story's moral depends
On Sleeping Beauty's last revenge

How long has she been sleeping
Beauty's only skin deep
If she forgives herself depends
On Sleeping Beauty's last revenge

Hanging my head on her bed I am waiting
I stand on guard for her heart, yet she hates me

I steal the kiss right from her lips
Stealing kisses from her lips
I steal them softly while she's sleeping
I feel the fault -- all I can feel
I taste the salt -- it tastes so real
I can taste it when she's weeping
What have I got to do with it
What have I got to do with it

Far from the world that she's in
Away from all she resents
This story's moral depends
On Sleeping Beauty's last revenge

How long has she been sleeping
Beauty's only skin deep
If she forgives herself depends
On Sleeping Beauty's last revenge

In every shadow, there's a depeer reason searching for a seam
In every nightmare, there's a darker meaning waiting for a dream
If I could take you from this corner, if I could shake you from this spell,
The cold would seem a little warmer, heaven knows it must be hell
For you to stand in frozen silence while I dance over your grave
You never reached out through the violets, ever asking to be saved
And if winter could meet summer, could they tell each other apart
What's life worth without a little change of weather in your heart

How long has she been sleeping
Beauty's only skin deep
Far from the world that she's in
This story's moral depends
On revenge
Revenge
Sleeping Beauty's revenge
Sweet revenge

Far from the world that she's in
Away from all she resents
This story's moral depends
So how long as she been sleeping
Beauty's only skin deep
If she forgives, she forgives herself
It's revenge
