Lyrics[edit]

    In the wasteland
    on the way to the Red Queen...
    it's no wonder our stage clothes 
    have dreams to be famous.
    The trees in the courtyard are painted in blood,
    so I've heard.
    She hangs the headless
    upside down to drain.
    
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    This is only a game,
    this is only a game
    
    I was invited to
    a beheading today
    I thought I was a butterfly
    next to your flame.
    A rush of panic and
    the lock has been raped.
    This is only a game,
    this is only a game...
    
    But then our star rushes in,
    feeling like a child and looking
    like a woman...
    She has been forecast with an
    attempt to kill herself,
    but the ending didn't test well.
    
    I was invited to
    a beheading today
    I thought I was a butterfly
    next to your flame.
    A rush of panic and
    the lock has been raped.
    This is only a game,
    this is only a game...
    
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    This is only a game,
    this is only a game.
    
    So picking my skin
    and my scales
    I see my horror
    mirrored in the
    sundown of your
    blank stare.
    I see my horror
    mirrored in the
    sundown of your
    blank stare.
    
    So picking my skin
    and my scales
    I see my horror
    mirrored in the
    sundown of your
    blank stare.
    I see my horror
    mirrored in the
    sundown of your
    blank stare.
    
    But then our star rushes in,
    feeling like a child and looking
    like a woman...
    She has been forecast with an
    attempt to kill herself,
    but the ending didn't test well.
    
    But then our star rushes in,
    feeling like a child and looking
    like a woman...
    She has been forecast with an
    attempt to kill ourself,
    but the ending didn't test well.
    
    She has been forecast with an
    attempt to kill ourself,
    but the ending didn't test well.
    
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    EAT ME, DRINK ME
    This is only a game,
    this is only a game.
