"Snow White Queen" is the sixth track on the second album, The Open Door.
One of the first songs written for The Open Door, "Snow White Queen" was inspired after Lee had experiences with stalkers. She stated, "My privacy had been completely invaded and there were a couple of nights where I couldn't stay at my house. So I wrote a song about it through the eyes of the stalker, and with my perspective, too." Entertainment Weekly's Jon Dolan found similarities between the song and Tori Amos' "Me and a Gun". It uses several industrial beats into its composition.
Amy sings her lowest note in this song during the line: "Can't escape the twisted way you think of me."
