Leaving the throne behind our princess is found anew
Strung up in a bedpost webbing.
in this romance of spiders
We love, like spiders
You won’t feel a thing.

She had a run in with the doctor of fishes
Now she smiles like a princess, legs behind her head
A doctor stands accused of painting the roses red
Off with his head. Off with his head

Doctors. Cameras. Loved ones. Unhand her
Behold the site of our villain in peril
This doctors hand in her. She is fucked by a million viewers

So smile big for the cameras. We’re sending this one home

These eight legs have dug their way in. Has it made you whole?

    General CommentI love the Alice in Wonderland theme "A doctor stands accused of painting the roses red Off with his head. Off with his head" and the fact that its titles "The Story of the Curious Oysters."

    General CommentYes, very true. This song is really self explanitory. Alice in Wonderland, originally called Alice's adventure. Or something like that.

    General Commentthe song makes me think of a younger girl getting taken advantage of by an older man, not even rape but just convincing this girl to do it...maybe not like a real little kid but still someone underage...painting the roses red could mean taking her virginity and when people find out about it they want to punish the doctor. the cameras and all could be like the news putting such a private...matter into the public light and now everyone knows about this happening

    let me know...

    General CommentHmm...this song seems to be about how doctors are often punished for performing abortions. That's what "painting the roses red" means.

    Basically, we have a girl who's messed around with a bunch of guys. That's what the title seems to imply: "curious oysters" becomes "active vaginas." One of the guys ends up getting her pregnant, so she goes to a doctor to get an abortion. Guess who gets in trouble?

    ...And the news media gets in the way, televising the event and airing pro-life protests needlessly.

    That's my take on it.

    General Commenti agree completely with pianoislandarsonist.

    and for the record, alice in wonderland was originally called alice's adventures in wonderland, and through the looking glass is actually a second story in wonderland since she ges there by going through a mirror instead of following the rabbit down the hole.
