Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
Rainer Maria Rilke


You’re so Unlike Cinderella,
You ain’t ever had a fairy god-mother,
You’ve never found prince charming,
You say life’s never been fairy tale,

How cold is your heart?
How empty is your mind?
Why is that when I hold you,
Your heart beats slower then mine

You’re so unlike sleeping beauty,
Though you surround yourself with thorns,
You say you’ll never wake up,
(This nightmare’s all you’ve ever known)

You’re so unlike snow white,
You don’t believe in wishing wells,
Though I see you as pale and perfect,
You say you’ll never be “the fairest of them all”

How cold is your heart?
How empty is your mind?
Why is that when I hold you,
Your heart beats slower then mine

How can I be prince charming?
When you’re unlike any princess I’ve ever known,
How can I be the knight in armor,
When you don’t want to be rescued?

You’re so Unlike Cinderella,
You ain’t ever had a fairy god-mother,
You’ve never found prince charming,
You say life’s never been fairy tale.

Wrote for a short story called "The Song Of Thrash". This is not the song the story is talking about, this is just one I wrote to help understand Thrash a little better.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take... but by the moments that take your breath away.

This is really great. I really like it!
