Mirrors mirroring Memories I haven’t told Picking, pickling Opening I will unfold Before I crack, before I crack Whispering whispering Walls between us in the night Darkness creeping Rivals sucking out the light Please don’t crack, looking Back Green as grasshoppers Perfect time lockers Midnight meeting us Locked into a curse Emergency rummaging Pushing through a broken man Surging spluttering Hard for her to understand Looking back, green and black Green as grasshoppers Perfect time lockers Midnight meeting us Locked into a curse

Washed off, lost, it’s the flesh we fear Smother you in plaster, cherish you my dear It’s toughened for the weather, but brittle to a tear You will never get out of here Turn for us Just, Spin to dust Grease back slap, with a smile you know We’ll call you when it’s ready. Call you if it goes. Your future is as heady, as steady, as below Just leave your money before you go Turn for us Just, Spin to dust Turn for us Just, Spin to dust This is the greatest gift that I will ever take from you. Nail it to the heather, and tether to sand We built this all together, a statue of a man Here’s two for Timmy, then clearly I stand Looking at the timber here in my hand. Tear it down, all you need is x4

Follow to a hole Falling for a while Passing vertically One side makes you grow One side makes you small What size should one be? Curious and curiouser Things aren’t what they seem Queer old smoking caterpillar What does all this mean? Asking questions why No sense did she find Alice wanders on Curious and curiouser Things aren’t what they seem Weeping turtle sleepy mouse It must be time for tea Curious and curiouser Things aren’t what they seem The Queen of Hearts is furious This life is but a dream Off with all their heads Painting flowers red There’ll be no one left Curious and curiouser Things aren’t what they seem The Queen of Hearts is furious This life is but a dream x2 Curious and curiouser Things aren’t what they seem The Queen of Hearts is furious

Ooooooooooooo Ooooooooooooo I’ve got a crush But I worry that I may have made you up. Friends say I’m mad, So if I can Convince others Of your powers Then this might save us. Ooooooooooooo Ooooooooooooo Ooooooooooooo Ooooooooooooo

In, stepping further in, welcomed by the light Seeing the others around Will I make a sound? Will I know the way? What is it I’ve found? Listen to the ones, listen to the end Blowing a candle out Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs I’m unprepared to tell a story, who’ll go next? Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs Thirteen Chairs Gone, faces fade to black. I can hardly see, Where there used to be friends Some could be my age Want to know their way? What is it that I’ve found? Listen to a boy, listen to a girl Another candle out Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs I’m unprepared to tell a story, who’ll go next? Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs Thirteen Chairs Out, as the lights go out, As the darkness comes It’s getting closer to me Will I make a sound? Will I know the way? Starting to see what I’ve found Listen to the tales, listen to my tale Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs I’m unprepared to tell a story, who’ll go next? Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs Thirteen Chairs Will I make a sound, will I know the way? What is it that I’ve found? Listen to the ones, listen to the end Blowing a candle out
