the fairytales your parents tell are lies
the real endings are scary and grotesque
they would make you scream until you cry
and you would toss and turn all night in bed

and they all lived happily ever after is a lie
'cause they all died sad and alone
that’s the truth
one day you will be dead too

real life is oh so sad
the best you can hope for
is to die in your sleep
when you are old and frail
and life has left you miserable and weak

and they all lived happily ever after is a myth
'cause they all just withered away
in a hospital bed
surrounded by family and friends

you might be afraid
of the boogey man
but that is something you should never fear

'cause real life is much worse
a blessing and a curse
as fast as it comes
it disappears

and they all lived happily ever is a joke
and we’re laughing all the way to the grave
until we all just fade away
realistically ever after
