cinderella ride
cinderella, will you ride
will you ride with me?
out into a smoke-filled night
across the bridge of tears
where children with their eyes sewn shut
lay begging on the stones
and will we lead them from this dust?
yes we will lead them home

all away, let it all away
till there's nothing to carry
and nothing to worry
now fall away, let it fall away
till you're light as a bird in the air

cinderella riding down
on the ebbing tide
down to mend the broken cups
and their foolish pride
solace to the angry mob
succour to the weak
cinderella, cup of love
their pain is what you seek

all away, let it all away
till there's nothing to carry
and nothing to worry about
fall away, let it fall away
till you're light as a bird in the air
all away, let it all away
till there's nothing to carry
and nothing to worry about
fall away, let it fall away
till we're light as the birds in the air

cinderella, queen of bells
cinderella ride
leave them with their fond farewells
and their petty crimes
leave behind the bloodlet clouds
rise up on sparrow wings
and you shall be a queen of shrouds
the queen of helpless things
