“ What’s that in the mirror, or the corner of your eye?
What’s the footstep following, but never passing by?
Perhaps they’re all just waiting, perhaps when we’re all dead.
Out they’ll come a-slithering, from underneath the bed. ”

—    The Doctor

Pandora’s Box

Born in Kansas
On an ordinary plain
Ran to New York
But ran away from fame
Only seventeen
When all your dreams came true
But all you wanted 
Was someone to undress you

And all the stars you kissed 
Could never ease the pain
Still the grace remains
The face has changed 
And you’re still the same

And it’s a long long way
From where you want to be
And it’s a long long road
But you’re too blind to see

Frame of silence
Of an innocence divine
Is a dangerous creation
When you fail the test of time

And all the photographs
Of ghosts of long ago
Still they hurt you so
Won’t let you go
And you still don’t know

And it’s a long long way
From where you want to be
And it’s a long long road
But you’re too blind to see

When you look around yourself now
Do you recognize the girl
The one who broke a thousand hearts
Terrified the world

And all the stars you kissed
Could never ease the pain
And if the face has changed
The grace remains
And you’re still the same

And it’s a long long way
From where you want to be
And it’s a long long road
But you’re too blind to see

And it’s a long long way
From where you want to be
And it’s a long long road
And you’re too blind to see

And it’s a long long way
From where you want to be
And it’s a long long road
And you’re too blind to see

And it’s a long long way…
