The floor begins to slide beneath me, my heartbeat takes a lurch
No longer can my chair bequeath me safety on its perch
Minutes pass, minutes pass as on the floor instead
I strain for balance as I grasp the framing of the bed
In the stillness, in the waiting, more tremors haven't come
The pounding of my heart abating, damn earthquake's finally done

My evil princess

Your pretty eyes, beautiful smile
Oh, my evil princess,
I fell for you
When we touched, electrified
Oh, my fallen princess,
what did you do?
