The watered down one, the one you know
Was made up centuries ago
They made it sound all wack and corny
Yes, it’s awful, blasted boring

from Kanye West – Dark Fantasy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Most fairy tales today are actually more cheerful versions of twisted and sick stories which were sanitized for the Grimm’s fairy tale collection. They seem like one thing, but they actually mean another.

Most music present a falsely happy view of the world — Ye is about to expose the lies and share the real fairytale of the 21st century. He will certainly not live “happily ever after”.
