Welcome to my castle
I can’t give unto you unless you give unto me
Lay inside my garden
Only if you are as beautiful as the flowers here

Go ahead & laugh at me
Oh father it’s so sad I don’t blame you

*It all dates back to Ancient History
Old complicated soul once lived inside of me

Make yourself at home now
I’ll give you everything but sorry I only love myself
Take the shirt off my back
Reassure me that I am the fairest of them all

Go ahead & pray for me
Mother there’s not much more you can do

*It all dates back to Ancient History
Old complicated soul once lived inside my family tree
Now I repeat Ancient History
Now I do, now I do, now I do things done to me
Set me free

Dear sister I’m ok
It shouldn’t have to be this way
It doesn’t have to be this way

*It all dates back to Ancient History
Old complicated soul once lived inside my family tree
A circle of Ancient History
Now I do what was done to me
Set me free, set me free, set me free
