Part VI, "Safety in Wonderland", in which our hero becomes overwhelmed by her newfound freedom and attempts to find a safe space.

lyrics

Putting all my thoughts aside
I never wished that you replied
And though this is not what I planned
I'll find my safety in wonderland

Take your fears and melt away
Don't have to face another birthday
And though this is not what I planned
I'll find my safety in wonderland

Give it up, you can't resist
Just think of all the times you kissed
Your mind is not so dignified
You've never been more terrified

The thought that I might disappear
No eyes to find me over here
But though this is not what I planned
I'll find my safety in wonderland

I know when all's been said and done
We might have had a little fun
That doesn't mean that I can take
The brittle bones or the burning heartbreak

I'll find a place where I can hide
It's salvation, simplified
And though this is not what I planned
I'll find my safety in wonderland

This world is far too big for me
Swallowed by pride and dignity
I'll never work a day again
Not when I'm drowning in my sin

Look, my time is running out
Can't stand to face such reigning rout
And though this is not what I planned
I'll find my safety in wonderland
