"Girls! Girls! Girls!" as written by and Emilie Autumn....
Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you'll know

The beginning and the end
Much closer than they seem
Death is but a dream, I know
Dolls are meant to grow away
All broken and bent from petty play
My friend in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you'll know

Like the water in the well
My melancholy state
Folly, fear and hate, I know
Even time will never tell
She teetered, she tripped
And then she fell
My faith in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday

    General CommentOh shit, I accidentally wrote "humbled" instead of "humble".
    Anyway, this has got to be one of the funniest, most epic songs on earth. Especially with Maggots "masturbating" on stage.

    My InterpretationContinuing with my analysis/ my take on the 'Story of FLAG' the proprietors of the Asylum use the girls mental illnesses to attract an audience to humiliate and profit from the girls condition, instead of trying to help them.

    The men who ask questions also give a small (biased) view on how mental disorders were viewed in the past.

    Outside of the story, this song is a powerful satirical take on medication, women's rights and society itself:

    "If insanity's primarily a feminish malady - and no one's doubting that, for it's a scientific fact!" The quickness of society to support paradigms in modern society.

    "We've got pills for:
    Agression
    Opression
    Depression
    Manic depression
    But there's a pill for everything these days!"
    Another take on the heavily reliance of medication in today's society, less serious than, "Take The Pill"

    "They're really more like animals than people
    Which haven't proven to have any souls at all
    The only bits that aren't inferior
    Are bosom and posterior
    And these are only useful in a seedy music hall"

    This bit bashes religion and the objectification of women.

    Finally the last bit, from "I've got a lot more words to say..." to the end of the song, is a bash on just about everything relating to women: from women's rights to science to religion to sexuality.

    There's so much more to say about this song, and the message it portrays, but Ill stop here.

    General CommentThere's actually a Shakespeare reference in here.

    "Some are born mad, some achieve madness, and some have madness thrust upon them!

    "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them!" - Marvolio/Maria from Twelfth Night.

    Just thought I'd add that.

    General CommentA hilariously and blatantly sarcastic song, which suggests that Emilie has sang this to a very sexist person who thinks of women as crazy wierdos. "They're really more like animals than people" suggests my point earlier.

    General CommentOne time I was singing this and I got to the part where she was naming all the pills and my mum was like,
    "Well, number one, we don't use tuppence, and number two, I don't want any pills except Claritin D. Thank you."
    My mum is awesome.
