"Libertina Grimm" as written by Paul James Allender, Daniel Lloyd Davey, Charles Hedger and Dave Pybus....
Libertina Grimm
Howitzer glare and spitfire blade
Wooed by Dresden serenades
Her soundtrack now a bombing raid
Bored of Vaudeville

God was six days sober
On the night that she was born
To the glistening star of a bible class
An icon now in religious porn
She was Alice through the gloryhole
An ejaculate misconception
Disney-esque, the high priestess
Of greed and deepest dark deception

All best-to-bury whims
For Miss Libertina Grimm

She, that little red riding crop
Brer Werewolf at her stocking tops
Beneath the tightened leather strop
Of the basque of the houndervilles

At the stroke of midnight come
She polished verse and hearses
In a poisonous pen dipped in omen
To her surgeon full of general curses
In the hand of morgue redeemers
Though the dead always pleased her more
Squatting in her coffins
Flirting curtsies to the thirteenth floor

Tip your hats
For sweet Libertina Grimm
Fantasy and candy stores
Snow white and the seven straws
Smoke and mirrors on all fours?
Libertina Grimm

Her brothers grim, her sisters through
The final dance will be the cue
She amputates to fit the shoe
Libertina Grimm

Libertina Grimm

Mystery kindled in a blackened room
Nine candles lit to improve the gloom
She sees the dark as she feels her womb
Full of hidden secrets
They haunt her heart, those precious few
Those Count Lestats and Betty Blues
Those tortured souls just like me and you
Full of hidden secrets

No, don?t go
Don?t you leave me here
So alone
Libertina
No, don?t you go
Don?t you leave me here
So alone
Where the dead are free to roam

    General CommentLibertina Grimm sounds like an amazingly beautiful woman, who has evil intentons, and sounds like a bit of a necrophiliac....And she has dani 'around her little finger' So to speak, like shes enthralled him and then decides to move on to someone else just leaving him stranded, just cause she can....cause shes beautiful Miss Libertina Grimm
    Well thats what i got from the song anyway....it probably isnt that correct.....but it makes sense to me.

    General Comment"Disney-esque, the high priestess"
    Alot of disney/fairy tale puns in here.


    But what stood out the most for me were the cinderella references. "At the stroke of midnight come"

    "The final dance will be the cue, She amputates to fit the shoe"

    I remember in one version of cinderella I heard when I was little is that one of the step sisters cut off her big toe or part of her foot in order to fit into cinderella's shoe. Thus the "amputated" reference.

    General CommentThe Cinderella references come from the 'Grimm' part of the title, referring to the Brothers Grimm who were famous for their fairytales...I think...
