lyrics

Dorothy, what do you say
I know that you don’t want to stay
But why go home to a place that makes you cry

And what is home but a place you call your own
Mirrors sometimes lie, but mine can take you past
Your cyclone sky

Honor all the little girls
With worlds set out before them
Honor all the fair maids
Who never told their story

Never settle for silence
When there’s always another door
Every chance is just a tumble
Down another rabbit hole

Spinning skies and mirrors
Each will carry you away
Each one a new door
If you know the words to say

See a place where no one tells you
You have to be the same
With a name like yours
It’s time you became a hurricane

After all the sinning scarecrows, and the lying lions
After the all the heartless men
Of steel and stone

After all the wicked wizards
Who swore to take you home
After all the faithless fairies, their sins you need not carry
Let them go

Know that if you stumble
You get back up again
The only thing you have to fear is
Failing to begin

I’m only here to tempt you
I won’t carry you myself
The choice that you must make is all your own

But either way, you’ll still be carried away
Will you finally take command and take both our lives
in both our hands?

Honor all the little girls
With worlds set out before them
Honor all the fair maids
Not allowed to tell their story

Never settle for silence
When there’s always another door
Every chance is just a tumble
But this time, choose your own rabbit hole

Spinning skies and mirrors
Each will carry you away
Each one a new door
If you know the words to say

See a place where no one tells you
You have to be the same
With a name like yours
It’s time you became a hurricane
