Lizzie Borden the Musical - Why Are All These Heads Off Lyrics

BRIDGET (spoken)
Miss Lizzie, your father doesn't want you nor Miss Russell up in the barn no more

LIZZIE (spoken)
Maggie? What do you have there?

BRIDGET
Listen to me, Lizzie, it's bad
And I don't know how to say this
But your father saw you in the barn
He saw you go up there with Alice

He said, "I told her to leave those birds alone
They're sick and dark and filthy"
Then he took an axe and chopped their heads off
One by one he killed them

LIZZIE
The sound of beating pigeon wings
Is ringing in my ears
And the taste of blood is on my tongue
And it's been rising up for years

My world is growing darker
He is shutting out the light
There's no way out of this pressure cooker
No way out alive

BRIDGET, LIZZIE, ALICE
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?

ALICE
Why? Why? Why?

BRIDGET, LIZZIE, ALICE
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads

ALICE
Wait, wait, wait
Everything is fine, Lizzie
We will find a better way
If you stay with me, Lizzie
I will protect you

BRIDGET
There are two sides, Lizzie
You didn't choose what side you're on

ALICE
But there is right!

BRIDGET
And there is wrong!

LIZZIE
And I will choose my weapon!

BRIDGET, LIZZIE, ALICE
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?

ALICE
Why? Why? Why?

BRIDGET, LIZZIE, ALICE
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?
Why are all these heads off?

ALICE
Why? Why? Why?

LIZZIE
I'm standing looking forward in the dark
A feeling brushes past me
And I know the wind has changed
