lyrics

Cold and clear the screaming came, the cries were carried on the wind
A shadow on the forest lay, a curse on all who dwelt within
A maze of briars twisting grew to keep the fragile world safe
Entrapping she who sleeping lay on silvered sheen of spider's lace

Chorus: Sleeping Beauty, a danger to us all
If you hear her, promise you'll not heed her call
Sometimes a curse is not the evil thing it seems
Promise child, that you'll not heed her dreams

Her call was subtle, dark and deep, it stole the hearts of dreaming men
For all who live must sometime sleep and dreams is where she lives again
Once by one they made their way along the narrow winding track
To where the maze of briars grew to try and win their lady back

Yes one by one they tried the maze, and left the briars wet with blood
As first they tried and then they died, their bodies broken in the mud
Hungry as the briars grew, they ate the hearts of dreaming men
Devouring all but stark white bone, and the lady cared for none of them

Her meat and drink are death and pain, and twisting shadows is her play,
But stealing dreams she loves the most, this darkest lady of the fay
That she must stay ever bound is a truth that all can clearly see
But I wonder which is worse, the lady bound or walking free
