Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" Music Video -- A Goth Fairy Tale!



Katy Perry's new music video for "Wide Awake" may be one of her darkest yet ... and boy does the look suit her!

The just-released clip plays out like a goth fairytale, with Katy sporting gorgeous dark purple locks and a cloak as she explores a shadowy kingdom.

Along the way she meets a young version of herself, faces off against weird minotaur-looking things in a hospital and even punches Prince Charming ... a possible reference to Russell Brand?

While weird, the video is visually stunning and, as we've said before, we really like the darker look on the usually bright and cheery singer.

How does this video rank for you among other ones like "California Gurls" and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"? Sound off below!

"Wide Awake" by Katy Perry lyrics

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

I'm wide awake
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I'm wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong?
I'm wide awake
And now it's clear to me
That everything you see
Ain't always what it seems
I'm wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldn't bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
'Til I woke up on
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine

I'm wide awake
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I'm wide awake
Need nothing to complete myself, no

I'm wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Out of the lion's den
I don't have to pretend
And it's too late
The story's over now, the end

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldn't bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
'Til I woke up on
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
I'm crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
I'm falling from cloud nine

I'm wide awake
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I'm wide awake
I am trying to hold on
I'm wide awake
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
I'm wide awake
But I'm not blind anymore...

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine
I'm crashing from the high
You know I'm letting go tonight
I'm falling from cloud nine

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
