"Once Upon A Time" lyrics (song in the resouces) but concept-wise I thought the lyrics might fit as a text RECord for this collab as it directly relates to Fairy Tales, sexuality, and it's told from a female's perspective.




"Once upon a time…" that's how they always started,

now watch how you quiver, when tornado season comes.

there aren't always heroes, no magic mirrors,
and if you want to slay a dragon - you better look within.

tell me a story
