hidden
A dustland fairytale beginning,
or just another white trash county kiss
'61, long brown hair and foolish eyes
He looked just like you'd want him to,
some kind of slick chrome American prince-
a blue jean serenade
Moon River, what'd you do to me?
Well I don't believe you

Saw Cinderella in a party dress
But she was looking for a nightgown
I saw the Devil wrapping up his hands
He's getting ready for the showdown
I saw the minute that I turned away
I got my money on a pawn tonight

A change came in disguise of revelation
and set his soul on fire
She said she always knew he'd come around
And the decades disappear like sinking ships
but we persevere
God gives us hope,

but we still fear what we don't know
The mind is poison
Castles in the sky sit stranded vandalized with
drawbridges closing

Saw Cinderella in a party dress
But she was looking for a nightgown
I saw the Devil wrapping up his hands
He's getting ready for the showdown
I saw the ending when they turned the page
I took my money and I ran away,
straight to the valley of a great divide

Out where the dreams all hide
Out where the wind don't blow
Out here the good girls died, and the sky won't snow
Out here the bird don't sing
Out here the field don't grow
Out here the bell don't ring; out here the bell don't ring
Out here the good girls died

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep
It's such a bitter form of refuge
Ah, don't you know the kingdom's under siege
and everybody needs you?
Is there still magic in the midnight sun,
or did you leave it back in '61 in the cadence of a
young man's eyes?
Out where the dreams all hide
