Ophelia is a tragic figure from Shakespeare's Hamlet. The song refers to the dark side of love and darkness of the female entity. The woman who is a mother and can become a Maenad, the woman who loves but can also poison you, Ophelia is a drama queen who pulls you in her vortex and you struggle to jump back into the light. A Pandora figure opening her box.
We tried to give a cinematic feel to a dramatic story, looking through the alleys of pain for the path of redemption and the stairs of atonement.
Lyrics: This drama queen I ve heard you loved those days
She is shooting straight into your heart now
The endless nights you prayed for her to gods
Trading your dreams under the moonlight
Everything for you my dark queen
My heart laid in your altar,
You sacrificed the crown we shared
with dragons in our tower
You ve touched the womb and tried to plant the rose
in coals you ve wished for garden flowers
and then Ophelia came to steal her mind
Your world became this frozen palace
Well I feel free I m a bird inside
The clouds I own for wings and
I hope you ll clear your own sky too
Goodnight I choose my dreams now
Pandora I closed your box you wont hurt me any more..
