Do not fret
for the prison is not a threat
but your route to the palace.

a King's butler
will make mention of your name
and the King will call you to fame.

FAMILY TREE (Forbidden)

I am your mother
but also your sister.
We share the same father.

I mean,
Your grandfather is your father.
Your grandmother is your step-mother,
and your aunties are your step-sisters.
Only the word cousins make sense in this nonsense.
We are one big happy family to the world.

Don't grieve with me,
my world caved in
the night it all began.
All nights are like the first night,
It will remain so because I have no voice.
