  • This is the last track from Alesana's second full-length studio album. It's based on "Fitcher's Bird," a German fairy tale collected by The Brothers Grimm.

One sister discovers that the other two have been slaughtered in a room she has been given the key to, but she is warned that she would pay if she opened the door. >>
