There was a little girl, who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good, she was very, very good
But when she was bad, she was homicidal!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Rusty steel syringe… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

One day that little girl may find a filthy metal spike
And drive it right in the middle of your forehead
For she and her friends, this is very, very good
But for you the game is over – this is revolution!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Amputation saw… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Somewhere it’s always time for…
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!

I am that little girl, I have that little curl
Right in the middle of my forehead
And when I am good, I am very, very good
But when I am bad, I am fucking gorgeous!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Electroshock Machine… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!

    Song MeaningIt's talking about getting revenge against society for whatever it's done to wrong her.

    The "time for tea" aspect is because in places around the world, tea time is seen as a necessary part of every day, and she's comparing her revenge to this.

    Also, syringes, amputation saws, and electroshock machines are found in hospitals, and I believe Emilie Autumn did time in an insane asylum or mental hospital, so the reference there is pretty clear.
