The Queen of Spades woke up
In an hospital bed today
Despairing with the feeling
That her dreams are fading away
She hid all her fears
In multicolored celluloid fantasies
Completely unaware of the world
And its secret intricacies

The Queen of Spades knew
That she could fight all evil
And that nothing would matter
As soon as she pressed the needle
She knew that people only cared
About you when you're dead
And that to reach immortality
You just have to put a bullet in your head

And it's not like it wasn't expected
One day it was just too much to bear
And there's no need for such selfish acts
When the mask becomes a burden to wear

Who could've foreseen such a thing
She was a beauty queen in her prime
They despaired at the thought
That they just saw her for the last time
But a decision was made
And now was the perfect time
To embrace life
And to completely change her mind

Her friends said "You're so brave
We knew you could change your life around
We didn't know the state you're in
Your weeping was the strangest of sounds"

The last thing she saw were those drunk eyes
And the realization of a wasted opportunity and a sigh
The Queen of Spades died last night
Without a chance to make amends or to make things right
