"Antoinette"


Psyche Corp.

Ah la la la, la la la

he fashioned her of wisteria rose
lilac sprays and bones of rowan
she raised her arms like ma-ri-o-nettes
he smiled and named her
'Antoinette'
and sewed her with a silver thread
to seal the clockwork in her head

Ah la la la, la la la

ma petite fille, you must conceal
the secret of your hidden steel
my dear, my child, you must replace
the one whose image is your face

Ah la la la, la la la

Antoinette, I loved you once
but now your mind has gone to rust
you sparkle in the morning sun
exposed as petals turn to dust

Ah la la la, la la la

I stayed with you through your decay
Oh Antoinette, I watched the light
leave your eyes..

Ah la la la, la la la

Antoinette, I loved you once
but now your mind has gone to rust
you sparkle in the morning sun
exposed as petals turn to dust

Ah la la la, la la la
Ah la la la, la la la

he fashioned her of wisteria rose
lilac sprays and bones of rowan
she raised her arms like ma-ri-o-nettes
he smiled and named her
'Antoinette'
and sewed her with a silver thread
to seal the clockwork in her head
