Track Name: Persephone feat. Hatsune Miku
Verse 1
She hides her lies behind crystal eyes
And a smile that’s painted on
Shivering cold on her bed of gold
Emerald rows and pink chiffon
They say, “Isn’t she beautiful?”
“A diamond in the rough”
She fills her glass up with their praises, but it’s not enough
“Isn’t she wonderful?”
“A vision from a dream”
But no one there can hear her scream

Chorus
Darling, beware the girl
Who shares the air of kings
She’s only a heart that’s aching
An angel with borrowed wings
Woah
And from on high
She’ll close her eyes now as she sings
Nothing but spirit that’s breaking
An angel with borrowed wings
With borrowed wings

Verse 2
Mascara dark painted watermark
Wipe the traces from her cheeks
Dusted in blush, rose and apple crush
One more mask for one so weak
They say, “Doesn’t she have it all?”
“Born with a silver spoon”
Just like a shadow tucked away in the back of the room
“Isn’t she wonderful?”
“A vision from a dream”
But no one there can hear her scream

Chorus
Darling, beware the girl
Who shares the air of kings
She’s only a heart that’s aching
An angel with borrowed wings
Woah
And from on high
She’ll close her eyes now as she sings
Nothing but spirit that’s breaking
An angel with borrowed wings
With borrowed wings

Bridge
And still she wears her crown
Laughing brightly as her kingdom crumbles down
Times up, the hour has arrived
She’ll be lucky if she makes it out alive

Ending Chorus
Darling, beware the girl
Who lost what heaven brings
She’s only a heart that’s aching
An angel with borrowed wings
Woah
Cast from on high
She’ll close her eyes now as she sings
Nothing but spirit that’s breaking
An angel with borrowed wings
With borrowed wings

Haa-
Oh with borrowed wings
Woah
