Mark my words this night is far from it's end
Please spare me your threats and your useless remarks
Go ahead, I dare you!
Take one step closer to this gap baby! I'll show you what I mean!
I can't let fear get the best of me right now
Keep smiling and soon you will pay!

Close your eyes and let your mind escape into a world of dreams
I won't wake you
Close your eyes and keep them shut
The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

Who's laughing now?
Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
Oh, how she screams!
If you think you'll win my forgiveness
Awww, sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken!
You shouldn't have brought us! You shouldn't have hurt us!
You have not one clue what you've started but trust me
You'll know when I'm finished!
(Its time, baby!)

Close your eyes and let your mind escape into a world of dreams
I won't wake you
Close your eyes and keep them shut
The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

You'd better run faster than that
I know you're feeling scared but so am I
Don't you dare turn around... Hold on as tight as you can!
I know that you're afraid but so am I
There's no time for tears... run till you can't feel your legs!

Close your eyes...
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

Look who's laughing now!
Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
If you think you'll win my forgiveness
Awww. sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken!
(It's time, baby!)

    this song is Medieval scene whereas there was this commoner who fell in love
    with a witch, having completely trusted her, she hides a dark secret that she
    is a witch and is hurting the people the people of the town, or the related
    people to him, which is why he had a personal revenge or grudge on her. Having felt guilty for trusting her, he rallies the townspeople against her,
    then capture her, tie her to a post, then burn her, and so as she was being
    exhausted of the heat, blood begins to pour from her dry mouth, and so
    the people cheer and laugh because the wicked witch is dead.

    of course its freakin medieval theme the album is called "Where Myth Fades to Legend" pay attention! u all get it wrong! its not bout freakin girl boy boy wnts revenge thts so stupid and almost everyone says tht for EVERY SONG! either they have a brain the size of an ant or they dnt listen to the freakin lyrics stephen u r so wrong! what does breakin up and wnting to kill his ex have anything to do with the song! i think the most accurate is steelmaine ^-^ thnk goodness at least one person listens to the song alesana is a FANTASTIC band! dnt ruin the songs by saying theyre bout break ups maybe ur listening to insinc or kelly clarkson but if ur saying tht shit ur not listening to alesana
