A dangerous upspring reflected on you,
Has the kids telling fairytales based of your lie.
The remorse of a princess who’s mocked by her father.
A revolt to her majesty she bows out for life.

Your highness, your highness, how low will you go?
Do you dare say it to the cities of the world?
He may doubt the truth of it, but nothing excuses it.
When a man’s pride is injured a drink or two is due.

I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.

Yeah, this downward spiral’s going viral,
In the colosseum people screaming’,
“Off with her head !”
I’ve never been so loyal, nor have I bowed so deeply.

Locked in the pillory, I’m paralyzed.
Is this a reflection of humanity?
No this mustn’t be the end
No this mustn’t be the end!
I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.
My entire life you were walking out.
Thousands times now I’ve lost count.
This bitter taste you’ve left me with.
My blood on your hands is your final gift.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break… It off… x2
A dangerous upspring reflected on you,
Has the kids telling fairytales based of your lie.
The remorse of a princess who’s mocked by her father.
A revolt to her majesty she bows out for life.

I know it’s seems like it’s impossible,
Just to stop it all.
And if you think I’m a mistake,
Just break it off.

    Song Meaning"Do you dare say it to the cities of the world?"
    "You lay down the truth of it but nothing excuses it"
    "Has kids telling fairytales based off your lie"
    "I know it seems like its impossible just to stop it all. If you think im a mistake just break it off"
    "My entire life you were walking out. 1,000 times now ive lost count. This bitter taste youve left me with. My blood on your hands if your final gift"

    All of those quotes have similar meaning. A dark relationship. My theory is that they were once happy until the girl did something horrible. The girl wont say what, she just tells a lie and pushes him away. He can tell its a lie and hates it. She tells everyone who asks the lie which only spreads more trouble for him. She wants to tell the truth but is afraid to get hurt since when “you lay down the truth of it, nothing excuses it”. So she keeps going with the lie. In his mind he is thinking that if the relationship is broken then just “break it off”. But to her it seems “impossible”. So since she kept pushing him away, “my entire life you were walking out. 1,000 times now ive lost count”. He gets fed up with it and ends it. He ends his life. “my blood on your hands is your final gift”. Now, why would it be “off with her head” if he dies? Thats because she comes out with truth after the suicide. She tells everyone what she has done and they blame her. “Yeah, this downward spiral’s going viral,
    In the colosseum people screaming’,
    “Off with her head !””. Everyone blamed her like that. They bullied her until she finnally broke. She also, ended it herself. They both ended up commiting suicide(or she just lived in despair, i cant really identify which one.)

    General CommentThis song is the second song I heard from Ghost town, and I've obsessed with them for a long time. I absolutely love this band, and this song puts memories into my head of me and my best friend. This song gives eargasms. LOL
