Caroline (The Theatre) (New lyrics by me)

Now! This is the heart of the mini album- To Become A Lullaby
My favorite song of the mini album by far
It's feel is kinda like Mama and The Ghost Of You, but lyrically it's inspired by a movie called Dead Silence and a game series called Silent Hill
it has a large twist near the end that people were only able to get after i made some editing so i hope i edited enough for the twist to be perfectly obvious but not too obvious
(The uploaded picture is artwork i drew for the song to help people with the twist a bit, unfortunatly it's kinda blurry)
so tell me what u think of the song and what u think is the twist, and i'll letchya know if ya got it (although of course it's all to your own interpretation :) )
so thanks for reading :) <3 u guys!

...You won't take her away from me!!
We're allowed to play make believe!!

Lil Caroline is all mine!!!
An no one will ever take my doll
If they snip the strings she'll fall out of line (She's just a little girl) (LIL CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
So to save her, I'll kill every mannequin in the mall (Every man with skin in the world) (CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)

I'm inside the hive of those who took her
This is my theatre, this is my theatre
We put on an act for the onlookers
This is my theatre... my theatre

Mannequins of the land we're in
They're sour but sure taste sweet
They're mannequins with candy skin
The lunch ladies say never waste meat

…Dear diary… Oh they just don't get that before we met...
Time's were hard, never let out, my eyes were wet...
But that's farther behind us than all my scars!
Now me and my doll Caroline are-...
Friends forever!!! She's all I got!
And I'm not leaving her to rot!!!

Lil Caroline is all mine!!! (...You won't take her away from me!)
An no one will ever take my doll (We're allowed to play make believe!!)
If they snip the strings she'll fall out of line (She's just a little girl) (LIL CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
So to save her, I'll kill every mannequin in the mall (Every man with skin in the world) (CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
[Nothing to Fear dear Caroline, I’m your puppeteer]

[And you will always be my doll…]
All the other actors in this theatre sing so wrong (These ventriloquists are total whores!)
Don't cut the strings, the show must go on!!! (She's my doll, my little puppet) ("Cut the strings!!!")
Me an Caroline have been behind this curtain for so long (Snip these ventriloquists’ vocal cords!)
Don't cut the strings, the show must go on!!! (She's my doll and she loves it) ("PLEASE cut the strings!")

Maybe I'm paranoid but sometimes I feel like the old me
...I feel Caroline control me
But that voice in my mind, it can't be her I'm hearing call
After all she's just my doll.

So I’ll get a needle for Caroline's pupil
The button needs to be sown
I treat her ‘lil black eyes and blue pills
As if they were my very own

…Dear diary… Yesterday I used free time to yell an shout!!! (AH!!!)
An oh boy, did the old theatre's cleaners sure pout-
But just now, poor Caroline's sore tongue fell out!!! (-Should’ve been held…)
The whole theatre wondered what we were upset about… (-It wasn’t sown well!!)
Everybody asked me what was with the "SILENT TREATMENT" (-At each Show An Tell!!!)
I had to tell ‘em "HER TONGUE FELL OUT” in every single meetin'! (-An no one even helped!!!)

All the other actors in this theatre sing so wrong (These ventriloquists are total whores!)
Don't cut the strings, the show must go on!!! (She's my doll, my little puppet) ("Cut the strings!!!")
Me an Caroline have been behind this curtain for so long (Snip these ventriloquists’ vocal cords!)
Don't cut the strings, the show must go on!!! (She's my doll and she loves it) ("PLEASE cut the strings!")
[Nothing to fear dear Caroline, I’m your puppeteer]

[And you will always be my doll…]
Lil Caroline is all mine!!! (...You won't take her away from me!)
An no one will ever take my doll (We're allowed to play make believe!!)
If they snip the strings she'll fall out of line (She's just a little girl) (LIL CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
So to save her, I'll kill every mannequin in the mall (Every man with skin in the world) (CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)

"...Caroline... Oh Caroline... We're wasting time... Your puppeteer will not appear
'Cause Caroline... HE’S. IN. YOUR. MIND... What happened we had got so near…"
I overhear the shrink whisper in one of her ears (“Caroline HE’S IN YOUR MIND!”)
So I'll just pull it right out the other!!!… WE’RE- (“Caroline HE’S IN YOUR MIND!”)
Friends forever! She's all I got! [“Caroline! Caroline!! He’s only in your mind!!!”]
And I'm not leaving her to rot. [“YOUR…“PUPPETEER” IS NOT REALLY HERE!!!”]

The mannequins of the land we're in (All these Janitors! Secretaries! Waiters! Waitresses! Clerks an Cashiers…)
They're sour... but sure taste sweet (THEY’RE ALL FUCKING FIT TO EAT!!!)
They're mannequins with candy skin (Nurses! Hearse Drivers!! Therapists!!! Teachers and even volunteers!!!!)
The orderlies said never waste meat (THEY’RE ALL FUCKING FIT TO EAT!!!)

Inside the hive, holdin' her so she won't sink (The shrinks say I’m only in her head.)
This is my theatre- “Lights on”- my theatre (All lies to make her take her meds!)
We put on an act for all the cold shrinks
This is my asylum-Asylum-My theatre

Lil Caroline is all mine!!! (Ohhhhhhhhhhh…)
An no one will ever take my doll (OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!…)
If they snip the strings she'll fall out of line (She's just a little girl) (LIL CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
So to save her, I'll kill every mannequin in the mall (Every man with skin in the world) (CAROLINE IS MINE!!!)
[They say I’m not a real boy…Well they’re just being paranoid!!! Stuff it- She’s the puppet.]

...You won't take her away from me!!!!!! (CAROLINE IS ALL MINE!!!) ["…Caroline... Oh Caroline... We're wasting time... Your puppeteer will not appear”]
We're allowed to play make believe!!!!! (CAROLINE IS ALL MINE…) [“'Cause Caroline... HE’S. IN. YOUR. MIND... What happened we had got so near…"]
