My generation will come and go
Pilgrims passing to and fro|
Spinning straw-men into gold
I tell you, mothers, it’s something to behold

Today I bake, tonight I brew
Come tomorrow, gonna rip myself in two
I’m so glad they never knew
My secret name

Care is cold and lies are sweet
What I need to feel incomplete
Twist my face into a smile
I’ll be sleeping hollow in a while

Today I wake, tonight I’ll brew
And strike some pins with Hudson’s ghostly crew
I’m so glad they never knew
My secret name

Spinning straw-men into gold
I tell you, babies, it’s something to behold
Twist my face into a smile
I’ll be sleeping hollow in a while

Today I wake, tonight I’ll stew
Into some kind of bitches brew
I’m so glad they never knew
My secret name
