Natalia Kills - Wonderland


"Wonderland" is a song Natalia Kills from her debut studio album, Perfectionist. Written by Kills, Michael Warren and "The-Ron" Feemster, and produced by Feemster, the song was released digitally in the United States as the album's second single on 12 April 2011. The song speaks about Kills only needing the love of a person, saying she doesn't believe in fairytales using character references from classic stories like 'Snow White' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'. It was featured in the 2011 romantic fantasy film Beastly during a club scene where the character begins transforming into a beast.

Lyrics

I'm not Snow White,
but I'm lost inside this forest
I'm not Red Riding Hood
but I think the wolves have got me
Don't want your stilettos
I'm not, not Cinderella
I don't need a knight
so baby take off all your armor
You be the beast
and I'll be the beauty beauty
Who needs true love
as long as you love me truly?
I want it all
but I want ya more
Will you wake me up boy
if I bite your poison apple?

I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
but I believe in you and me

Take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
Wonderland wonderland

When I lay my head down
to go to sleep at night
My dreams consist of things
that'll make you wanna hide
Don't let me in ya your tower
Show me your magic powers
I'm not afraid to face
a little bit of danger, danger
I want the love
the money and the perfect ending
You want the same as I, I
So stop pretending
I wanna show you how
good we could be together
I wanna love you through the night
we'll be a sweet disaster

I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
but I believe in you and me

Take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
Wonderland wonderland

Woah oh oh
Oh oh oh
Woah oh oh

I believe in you and me

I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
I don't believe in fairy tales
but I believe in you and me

Take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
Wonderland wonderland

I believe in you and me
Wonderland, take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland
take me ta' take me ta
take me ta' wonderland

Music video

The music video for the song was made available on YouTube on 6 April 2011. As of August 2011, the video had gained over 2 million views.

Synopsis

The video starts with Kills being dragged by soldiers up the stairs of a mansion. This section of the video is intercut with images of armed police fighting with masked men. She then is forced to sit at a dining table with other women who's faces are half-covered with masks. She is served a cooked heart while the other women eat cupcakes with pills on them instead of sprinkles. They are watched by soldiers who stand on the floor above them. She then climbs up onto the table causing the soldiers to run down to her and grab her off the table. It then cuts to outside of the mansion where two soldiers are escorting Kills down the steps where her head is forced down and an executioner beheads her with an axe. Throughout the video Kills is shown singing the lyrics while leaning on a closed door. The video is intercut with text such as "Love is Pain", "Danger", "Lies" and the lyrics of the song. There are two versions of the video; a censored edit and the uncensored original cut.

Reviews

Peter Robinson in the Guardian noted her appearances on a BBC sitcom and The Archers commented 'Bizarrely she has now been taken under the wing of Will.i.am and rebranded as a sort of post-Gaga LA pop noir princess. It's all a bit silly and she can't carry the role very well but the broody electro songs – even when they sound a bit dated – are top stuff.'
