"Medusa" is the debut single released by American indie artist, Kailee Morgue. It was released on October 13th, 2017, and is also the first track on her debut EP, "Medusa."

Background

In January of 2017, Kailee tweeted a video of her working on the song. The video went viral on the internet, and many people anticipated the release. On June 19th, 2017, she signed with Republic Records, which left fans wondering if the song was going to be officially released. A few months later, she finally released the song on October 13th, 2017.

In a YouTube Q&A, she explained where she got the inspiration for the first line of the song, "There's blood in the water." She said:

"I was just watching this movie and I wish I could tell you what movie it was but I really have no idea, but one of the characters said “there’s blood in the water and they’re coming,” and I was like it’s kind of an interesting concept and I think I was just in, like, writing mode. So when I heard it, I like bolted to my room and I started, like I pulled this beat from YouTube and I started writing, and I always knew that I wanted to make a song that has Medusa in it somehow, so I just like turned that jungle vibe type of beats into that." - Kailee Morgue, YouTube Q&A[1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's blood in the water
And they are coming to bring me down
What's hope with no savior
Yeah there is no one in this ghost town

[Chorus]
She looked right through me
And I turned to stone
Medusa, Medusa
I've been here alone

[Verse 2]
And I crumble to pieces
My body, my weakness is on the floor
And the wind will blow and blow
And I won't be here no more

My wishing well has run dry
Stars are dying in the sky
So I shed my blood and tears
I'll show no fear just to survive

[Chorus]
She looked right through me
And I turned to stone
Oh Medusa, Medusa
I've been here alone

[Bridge]
She says, "Mortal one, you've been chosen
You're beautiful but you're broken
So hold on to this moment
To fight until you're hopeless"

There's secrets and riddles that live in these walls
There's ghosts of past heroes and I hear them call my name
We won't be tame

[Chorus]
Oh she looked right through me
And I turned to stone
Medusa, Medusa
I've been here alone

She looked right through me
And I turned to stone
Oh Medusa, Medusa
I've been here alone

[Verse 1]
There's blood in the water
And they're coming to bring me down
What's hell with no savior
Yeah there's no-one in this ghost town

[Hook]
And she looked right through me
And I turned to stone
Medusa, Medusa, I've been here alone

[Verse 2]
And I crumbled to pieces my body, my weakness is on the floor
And the wind will blow and blow, and I won't be here no more
My wishing well has run dried
Stars are dying in the sky
So I'm shedding my blood and tears
I'll show no fears just to survive

[Hook]
Oh she looked right through me and I turned to stone
Oh Medusa, Medusa I've been here alone
