Dodgson narrates while Sarah plays a game of Chess with The Red Queen.

lyrics

12. Escape From The Red Queen
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Tim Hunter, with some lines taken from Lewis Carroll’s poems)

Dodgson: (narrating and reading Chess Moves): Sarah to Queen's 5th, White Queen to King's Bishop's 8th, Sarah to Queen's 6th, White Queen to Queen's Bishop's 8th

Dodgson: Someone’s broken the looking glass! We’re trapped ! Who’s that!

Red Queen: You’re not going anywhere, I’ve smashed the looking glass, You’re not going back, you have no past. I’m rewriting history
Get on your knees before the altar of equality

(Chorus) I am the Red Queen
You’re prisoners of my dreams
I am the Red Queen
You are just pawns in my schemes
I am the Red Queen

Dodgson: Sarah to Queen's 7th, Red Knight to Kings 2nd (check), White knight takes Red Knight, White Knight to King’s Bishop’s 5th

Red Queen: To me this is just a game, I’ll change the rules and if I lose, then we’ll play again.
People never seem to learn, they believe me when I say I’ll promise them the world
Chorus
I am The Red Queen you can’t escape from me
I am The Red Queen you can’t escape from me

Dodgson: Sarah to Queen’s 8th, Red Queen to King's square, Sarah becomes Queen, Queen’s Castle, Sarah castles, White Queen to Queen’s Rook's 6th, Sarah takes Red Queen and wins. CHECKMATE

Dodgson: No matter how much things may change, eternal truths remain the same.
History rewrites will fail – human nature will prevail. Rule 42 of the Golden Realm:
No one shall speak to The Man at the Helm
