The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!

The Empress

You sit a top of the ship in the captains chair

It’s sort of like the weather

Your first mate doesn’t find it very fair

So high and mighty you wave that staff around

Might as well be a sword

10,000 dead lovers is what you’ve found

You’re as stubborn as a concrete block in a vice

It’s not nice

Not very nice

Somebody once loved you

And my oh my

How your ego grew

You must have been somebody’s princess

You say you would have gone to the ball

But that you didn’t have the dress

And in the jungles of India

The Tiger hides behind the leaves

A wise man appreciates

All that he receives

Empress

Empress

You’re too tough to impress

Empress, Empress

You wield a sword

Not knowing its power

Sometimes when you plant a seed

It doesn’t always come up a flower

Only a woman

Can truly make a man

Suffer

Suffer

Suffer

You just had to be somebody’s princess

Before you kicked the casket

And laid his soul to rest

And when they got recruited by you

To the Sadie Hawkins dance

The men were unwittingly reduced

Into your planned obsolescence

And in the jungles of India

The Tiger hides behind the leaves

A wise man appreciates

All that he achieves

Empress

Empress

You command an audience

Empress, Empress

I see that look upon your eyes

Not knowing all the power

Sometimes when I plant a seed

It doesn’t always come up a flower

I hurt myself too many times

All that can be grasped by love

Can make you

Suffer

Suffer

And when the albatross and the eagle

Swoop in upon the bow of the ships

Another Siren wails her song

With the poison of promises

Glued to her lips

Something you didn’t count on

Another woman in the sea

As long as there are sirens and sailors

Nobody will be ever be free

And at the bottom of the ocean

A love is locked in time

A kind of love

that isn’t yours

And it isn’t mine

Empress
