lyrics

Living underneath her shadow:
the three of us, alone.
Always wary, always watching,
hoping she'd stay home.
Happy moments seem so small
against that silhouette.
Every day and every night,
she's had us in her net.

For so long it has felt like we
didn't have much choice -
lock our door, hold our breath,
when we'd hear her voice.

Step by step, note by note,
we make our way inside.
As puzzle pieces lock in place,
the witch chooses to hide.

All those years,
all the mayhem -
how many dark turns were caused by her?

Had we the chance-
We should've-
We could've-
Everything dear to you and me -

she stole before our eyes, don't you see?
and now, finally,
do we dare to rise!

Who the heck do you think you are,
taking whatever you please?
You've taken way more than you deserve,
I won't let you take any more!
We won't stand aside for your vanity,
we won't sit around!
Nothing you throw will ever stop us,
we'll bring you crashing down!

Far below, and far behind -
our home so far away.
When we finally reach that tower,
we know we'll save the day!

Mocking rhyme, shrieking cackle -
my ire only grows.
Keep it up, we'll see who's laughing -
won't be you, that much I know!

After everything we've been through,
we'll finally face our fears.
It's come down to the two of us,
to end it all right here!
Everything dear to you and me -
she stole before our eyes, don't you see?
and now, finally,
do we dare to rise!

Who the heck do you think you are,
taking whatever you please?
You've taken way more than you deserve,
I won't let you take any more!
We won't stand aside for your vanity,
we won't sit around!
Nothing you throw will ever stop us,
we'll bring you crashing down!
Who the heck do you think you are,
taking whatever you please?
You've taken way more than you deserve,
I won't let you take any more!
We won't stand aside for your vanity,
we won't sit around!
Nothing you throw will ever stop us,
we'll bring you crashing down!
We won't step aside for your vanity,
we won't stand around!
Nothing you throw can ever stop us!
You'll come crashing down.
