When I was young, my mind would always wander away
I couldn't talk, never had nothin' to say
But now I'm grown, nothing much seems to have changed
I think I'm going insane yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Is this a fairy tale, are you the seven dwarfs
Did Snow White really die while fighting in the war?
They were the only friends I ever trusted
Now they're scattered, and livin' in the city unlisted numbers

Cinderella undercover
I say, better alive than dead

The war is coming, but there's nothing much that we can do
Stuck in a pay-phone, but the operator won't let me through
I close my eyes, but the memories burn in my brain
I think I'm going insane yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I heard a rumor, they said it's gone nuclear
I stockpile cigarettes, and double bold the door
A sanctuary for all my friends we'll stay in bed until the world ends
So please don't wake me, I gotta get some sleep

Cinderella undercover
I say, better alive than dead

I think I'm going insane, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Is this a fairy tale, this can't be real
There's fighting all around, they're shooting in the fields
They say that values change when hunger or ambition strikes

Survival is essential, at any cost or any price
The cartoon animals on old McDonald's farm
Are nodding off in hotel rooms with needles in their arms
The seven dwarfs, there's only four alive today

Cinderella's working for the CIA
Cinderella, the fairy tale's over

You should know, you got the scars to prove it
And your skin isn't as soft as it used to
But I don't care, come on you said it baby

Cinderella undercover
I say, better alive than
Cinderella undercover
I say, better alive than dead
