9 days
And I never asked to ascend
9 days
All is broken for me
My name
Remember it yes you will
My time
Comes to a swift end

9 days
and I fainted when I had learned
9 days
Was it lawfully mine
This place
where I held the world in my hands
Transformed
to the jail where I die

Speak my name for I was once a queen
Speak my name for 9 days all the same
The throne a glittering future not to be
A bloodied martyr my cousin's detainee
In 500 years, you'll still remember me

And now
I come hither to die by law
Condemned
By her highness decree
Wash my
Hands thereof in innocency
The face
Of you people this day

Time fades
And the tragedies echo on
9 Days
All the centuries gone
The blood
and the power still beckoning
And I
Never asked for it all

Speak my name for I was once a queen
Speak my name for 9 days all the same
The throne a glittering future not to be
In 500 years, you'll still remember me

Speak my name for I was once a queen
Speak my name for 9 days all the same
The throne a glittering future not to be
A bloodied martyr my cousin's detainee
I know what true pleasure means to me
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I'll be clean
Wash me, and I'll be whiter than snow

In 500 years, you'll still remember me

Vocals by Chrissy Roberts

This is a history song about Lady Jane Grey, Queen of England for 9 days in 1553. Its connection to the theme of memory is that history is memory in a sense. Events in our life imprint themselves on us, and historical events imprint themselves on society.
