I can read the words you've written underneath your skin
Didn't mean to to show them, now you've told me everything
Dream without desire and a court without a king

Only thing that you did wrong was put them in control
Kept your door unlocked and left a ladder up the wall
Hiding in plain sight can work for some but not for you

The woodsman wouldn't tell you where the cottage could be found
The wolf was just too pleased to step on in and help you out
Why would you even want to go there when you know it's out of bounds?
You'll never be found

Don't you let me down my friend, I've dragged you down the road
Since you've got this far there's really nowhere else to go
Clinging to me is easy, now you're going on your own


I've shown you all I can, it's down to you to move it now
And I don't want to hear from you until you've worked it out
As for saying otherwise, I'm not so sure I did
