Gemini Girly Song

My darling baby now let's go to bed
But darling sounds like beloved instead
Mommy ignores the lurking dread
Sweet child of hers has twins in her head
Has twins in her head…
"I got twins in my head!!"

The bed was tucked, there wass no one around
I wish I could move but my limbs are bound
The night is so thick and sweet Mommy's gone
Afraid of the dark and the voices come.
The voices come
(and my Mommy's gone)

Dollies and puppets dance on the shelf
Night-night me, night-night myself
Pictures, voices and thoughts in whirls
Girlies kissing other girls and other girls

Silent moans: "Oh Mommy please help me!”
“Kiss her, no, kill her!” Can't help this uneasy
Dolly mixture of feelings and shadows
Anger and joy tension and sorrow
And everything goes…

Gingerbread bogeymen, void wedding dresses
Dance in the trees, giving cold kisses
Legions of shades walk by the windows
While winds blow the cries of weeping willows
(She's the one to know)

Through the moonlit forest pale feet ran fast
Trying to escape from herself aghast
The very last step was made to the river
Where lily-white dresses float forever
For ever and ever

Everything hastened in the fake roundabout
Poor Gemini girl, she found no way out
By her lily-white hand,
The dead dollies took her
And tied her to dreams for ever and ever

Gemini Girly came and said to me
“Don't you be worried, I lie with dollies
And they look after me
Just like sweet Mommy
Used to care for me
Used to care for me

And now every night, she comes in my sleep
Now every night she comes in my sleep!”

Sweet Gemini Girly cries, Gemini Girly dies, Gemini Girly lies
Her lily white dress shines
Deep deep down inside, deep deep down inside
The river and my mind, the river and my mind
“Down inside,
The river and...
my mind"
