"The Uninvited Thirteenth" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
You should have known better than to insult me
That won't happen again

Sleep, I'll pretend that you died
And as you rest may your youth be stripped away from you
Sleep my precious, the darling Rosamond
May nightmares lay with you, revenge is mine

There must be something everyone has missed
The end is drawing near, it's everything I feared
I'm starting to wonder will this haunt me?
In spite of doubt I have to break the spell

A lovely day to be tortured by dreams of you

Now as she wakes I'll finally look in her eyes, my brilliant prize
Please know you'll never again be alone for I'm with you

Her sweet lips, oh so fair, to awake is now everything I crave
Time's catching up with me
I've come this far, there's no turning back
My sword is drawn, the only choice I have is to fight
Nothing can stop me now but myself

I will break the spell
Save me, help me, someone
Anyone, please, can you hear me?
My eyes, will I ever see light of day again? Never

Now as she wakes I'll finally look in her eyes, my brilliant prize
Please know you'll never again be alone for I'm with you

You'll never get away, you'll never get away
You'll wish you both had died, he will not break the spell
A lovely day to be tortured by dreams of you

Now as she wakes I'll finally look in her eyes, my brilliant prize
Please know you'll never again be alone for I'm with you
My sweet princess finally awake

    General CommentThis is definitely about sleeping beauty.Rosamond was her real name and of course the uninvited thirteenth was the one who cursed her.
    I think it's in the point of view of the uninvited thirteenth and the prince.many princes before him had tried to wake sleeping beauty up but before they could reach her they got pierced by the thorns.
    The uninvited thirteenth is talking about revenge and killing the both of them.as for the prince is talking about saving her and how he struggles to pass the thorns.
    In the end he reaches her and kisses her.His prize is his darling Rosamond.

    General CommentAlesana writes their songs so brilliantly! A lot of their songs are based off stories. Pretty much the whole album "On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax" is based off ancient Greece/Roman stories/myths. Some people think they are just singing stories. I think these songs have a lot more meaning and go a lot deeper than people think. You can think of it as just a story being sang, yes, but if you really think about it these songs can mean a lot! These guys are freaking brilliant!

    General CommentI don't think it's a bad ending to Sleeping Beauty. I'm not sure though.
    But it is definitely about Sleeping Beauty, hence the title and all that mess. Haha.

    My InterpretationThis is my interpretation of the song...

    a man fell in love with a girl, but the girl already has a boyfriend...
    "in spite of doubt, I have to break the spell... a lovely day to be tortured by dreams of you..."

    and so the girl's boyfriend got insulted, and treated the girl and everyone badly...
    "you should have known better than to insult me, that won't happen again... sleep, i'll pretend that you died, and as you rest may your youth be stripped away from you, sleep my precious the darling rosamond, may nightmares lay with you, revenge is mine..."

    but the girl is not happy with the one she's with, and she compares her suffering to a nightmare...
    "her sweet lips oh so fair, to awake is now everything i crave...... save me, help me, someone, anyone please can you hear me, my eyes will i ever see light of day again, never..."

    so the man finds a way to steal her and make her happy...
    "please know you'll never again be alone for i'm with you... i will break the spell...... my princess into the thorns i shall dive..."

    but the girl's boyfriend would not let them get away, of course...
    "you'll never get away, you wish you both had died, he will not break the spell..."


    but they did, and so they lived happily ever after...
    "now as she wakes, i'll finally look in her eyes, my brilliant prize... my sweet princess finally awake..."
