General InformationEdit

On November 27, 2011, Autumn first teased the lyrics for this track on her Twitter account. They were slightly different than the published song in 2012, having an extra line of lyrics in the chorus.

It's time for war. It's time for blood. It's time for death.
It's time for TEA!!![1]

In context of The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girlsthis song showcases the "Tea Party Massacre," where the inmates revolt against the Asylum's doctors and take control of the establishment. It is told in the point of view of Emily-with-a-y

In live performances, Autumn and her Bloody Crumpets use a series of Victorian medical tools as props. This has led to injuries in the past (see "Nottingham Injury ").

ReleasedEdit

"Time for Tea" was originally released on a digital single through the Asylum Emporium on April 11, 2011, when Autumn was mid-tour. It was released again on the full album, Fight Like A Girl, on July 24, 2012.

LyricsEdit

There was a little girl, who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good, she was very, very good
But when she was bad, she was homicidal!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Rusty steel syringe… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

One day that little girl may find a filthy metal spike
And drive it right in the middle of your forehead
For she and her friends, this is very, very good
But for you the game is over – this is revolution!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Amputation saw… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Somewhere it’s always time for…
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!

I am that little girl, I have that little curl
Right in the middle of my forehead
And when I am good, I am very, very good
But when I am bad, I am fucking gorgeous!

Hatchet… Check!
Scalpel… Check!
Electroshock Machine… Check!
It’s time for war!
It’s time for blood!
It’s time for TEA!

We’ve got the tools, we’ve got the time
To punish a most worthy crime against humanity
Somewhere it’s always time for tea
We’ve been trained by the very best
We think you just might be impressed
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate the enemy
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Eradicate
Revenge is a dish that is best served…NOW!
