There she goes running around in a white forest
Her feet pierced by the crystal grass
The glass thorns ripping her dress
But she’s alive more than anything
Midnight is coming for Shalott
So she places a steel crown on her head
As she sings to the cold trees
She hides herself in the well
Don’t let father find me
Even though the water is rising
Oh I know midnight will drown here
Shall I make noose out of my ribbons?
Deeper and deeper she falls into the hole
As the moon cast its shadow on the lake
This will be first the moon told a lie
See the mad hatter gasp and the rabbit laugh
The queen of hearts is waiting patiently
Shalott bites down and midnight hears bleed
Sorry little red but midnights found you!
So what are you going to do?
Water! Water! Rise now!
Guide her to the bed of sea
Where Shalott will dream forever
As starlight kisses the night
And the moon cast its shadow upon the lake
Look to midnight and drop a rose in the hole
Tell the queen her crown is still not gold
And remember little red still slumbers in the well
