about

Bluebeard is the second single from Twisted Tales.

Yunyu’s version of this tale is a dark and chilling rendition of the exploits of real life Bluebeards who use religion to justify their sexual abuse of women and children. Offering a musical lifeline to her characters, Yunyu used SOS Morse code as a base for the track. Bluebeard is post-modern rock meeting with Kate Bush-esque vocals, and reaches a violent crescendo of electrifying guitar. Short, sharp verses repeat in rhythmic sequence while the band keeps up with the multiple changes in time signatures

lyrics

oh my dear
pandora
don't open the box of
evil again
don't u scream
while I cut the badness
right out of you

I will be
honour bound
you will never dream to
disgrace me
burn witch burn
so u keep your purity again

run little lady run little lady run
i will keep u chaste
run little lady run little lady run
run run run run run
run little lady run little lady run
no room for your head
run little lady run little lady run
run run run run


little boy
give yourself to me
the god in me will always keep you chaste
holy holy dear
let me know you deep inside and out

you'd better
come here boy
or I will order holy hounds on you
burn boy burn
if you will not do what is
will of god

Burn little sonny burn little sonny burn
this will teach you now
Burn little sonny burn little sonny burn
burn burn burn burn
Burn little sonny burn little sonny burn
so u don't forget
Burn little ladie burn little sonny burn
burn burn burn burn

bloody chambers tainted keys
turn around and don't look now
He'll buy your silence take your peace
He is the word so blind your eyes

speak up now
there's a monster sleeping in your bed
bring the wall down
so bluebeard never troubles you again

so my dear
run run away
silence is not virtue you see
fight back now
you'll be stronger if you will try

Run prison daddy run prison daddy run
we return the fear
run prison daddy run prison daddy run
run run run run
run prison daddy run prison daddy run
so we smell your fear
run prison daddy run prison daddy
run run run run....
RUN!
