lyrics

Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
Things aren't quite as bad as they seem
Been pushed round too often, yes
But you haven't let them bury your dreams

Drawn around what you haven't done yet
Focused on what's already gone
Hidden like there's nobody wants you
Fading like a phantom at dawn

Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
Please don't let them rattle your brains
Been lied to too often, yes
Now your world seems so unbearably strange

You fight to keep the things that you're used to
Frightened by unstoppable change
There's people close to you who will use you, yes
But you mustn't let it happen again

Floating in the fog of your impossible past
You are sure you know the answers to what you're too scared to ask
Trapped inside the horror of the things you have seen
Now you're waiting for the flood to come and wash it all clean

Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
Things aren't quite as bad as they seem
Been misled too often, yes
Now let's show them what insanity means
