The first single in the Twisted Tales reboot. About the power of image industries and the stories they tell women.

lyrics

ok baby maybe I'll be ok tomorrow the next day the next day
as I take the purple pills yellow ones pink ones
he said I'd be ok
my doctor is a funny bunny

wonder what's wrong what's wrong
everything is peachy
why do I just fall apart fall apart fall apart
what is wrong with me
I'll pry me open how's that oven?

Poison stories tell me to hate
the story teller
maim the girls and take them to bed
just like their mothers
poison stories tell me to shoot
the story teller
Maim the girls and bind them with lead
just like their mothers

Pressure, pleasure , passion
give way to repression depression concussions
all the things we cannot do cannot say cannot be
is this how we live
will you keep my demons for me?

little girls just do never ask
just do all that he asks you say and I'll be saved
never speak ill of your dears
of your fears is that clear?
is this how we live
will you kill me now

Red riding hood
don't hate the girl but shoot shoot her storyteller
do don't question
they tell us how to be MEEK

Poison stories tell me to hate
the story teller
maim girls and take them to bed
just like their mothers
poison stories tell me to shoot
the story teller
Maim the girls and bind them with lead
just like their mothers

fix this purge that CUT THAT DOWN!
we are never perfect prefect perfect
poison pages tell us so you ugly sow
says issue one
and then issue two
tells us how to sever our toes.

wonder wonder wonder
what could ever be wrong
when I throw up all I eat
hide my food
in my bed
this is how I live
don't you look this way at me

Cinderella
don't hate the girl but shoot shoot her storyteller
all beauties are kind
teach us how to judge books by their covers


Father father tell a story change the tale and make it holy
mother mother drown your story change the girl and make her weak
tittle tattle bring the glory make it whole unmake the gory
time and time you drown the stories hollow the tales you leak

Poison stories tell me to hate
the story teller
maim girls and take them to bed
just like their mothers
poison stories tell me to shoot
the story teller
Maim the girls and bind them with lead
just like their mothers

Miracles miracles miracles
someday my prince will come
rags to riches it's great it's fate don't you see
I'm the chosen one
Without him I'll never be whole
