Dorothy is the first single from Twisted Tales. Based on the urban legends of the lost cosmonaut and wizard to OZ. Dorothy muses about her fate as she finds that her magic shoes are no longer working


a crack in time
like a break in the mind
cuts a path to home
we're that vine that forgot to die

do they lie or
am I just a tale
was I never real
when you catch me
screaming in space

silver heels are ticking and clicking and licking
do lost dorothies find their way?
back into the world did they vanish me vanish
dorothy are u real

will u find all the clues
I'm that phantom naut
find that yellow brick road++
that folds and folds into space

time which cuts me alive
my face is on fire
I'm fast turning blue
will u find me in time?

click my silver heels 3 times 3
there is no place like home
will they see
will I ever be free

watch my planet shine
round and round at a thousand miles
in the dark
remember me...

come in come in come in
talk to me now
come in come in come
we're going slower
come in come in come talk to me now
come come in come in
will the world know of us
