Track Name: Figurine
Someone’s been sticking pins
Into my waxen image.
The further they get screwed in,
The more I give up on living.

All I ever learned from you
Was how to satisfy a craving,
To give in to desire when the pulse is fading.
Figurine, spinning in endless motion.
Does she look serene, ‘til the cold blooded dance is over.

Guess you don’t know your own strength.
Brittle bones lay broken.
Hanging limp from a white fence.
Head smashed gaping open.

All I ever learned from you
Was how to satisfy a craving,
To give in to desire when the pulse is fading.
Figurine, spinning in endless motion.
Does she look serene, ‘til the cold blooded dance is done.

In its presence we grow weak.
In it’s absence seek its heat.
Fire that purifies the soul.
Cleanses and consumes us whole.

Porcelain figurine
Forever turning
Fixed expression
No emotion.

All I ever learned from you
Was how to satisfy a craving,
To give in to desire when the pulse is fading.
Figurine, spinning in endless motion.
Does she look serene, ‘til the cold blooded dance is over.
Track Name: Mercury
This unholy temptation grows,
it's an epidemic
sweeping through my soul.
Tell me my familiar,
should I dare to go
with my hand in his,
an unfurling rose.

Do good things come to those who wait
or do they wait forever.
We made a pact in blood and tears
that we could not be severed.

Nerves run high and resistance low,
and our misconceptions,
they begin to show.
But we're mercury,
and with heat we flow
back toward each other
to rejoin as whole.

Do good things come to those who wait
or do they wait forever.
We made a pact in blood and tears
that we could not be severed.
Though we trample every path,
though we stumble through the dark,
our souls are s‘till joined at the seams.
I would never take your dreams
away.

Do good things come to those who wait
or do they wait forever.
We made a pact in blood and tears
that we could not be severed.
Though we trample every path,
though we stumble through the dark,
our souls are s‘till joined at the seams.
I would never take your dreams
away.
Track Name: Storm
I took you up to the roof
And we stood with the storm.
Waves came crashing, smashing street lights,
And shadow galleons strained to hold their course.

It feels real and absolute,
Let’s us know we are alive.
With eyes that flash like electric sequins
We made four new stars appear tonight.

So don’t you dare look,
So don’t look down.
So don’t you dare look,
So don’t look down.
So don’t you dare look,
So don’t look down.
You could let me slip far away with the water,
Tears raining down like shells making craters.
Don’t look down, don’t look down.
Track Name: The World Is Too Big For One Lifetime
I won’t love you for the rest of my life
But I’ll bear the scars of the red-hot knife
That history scorched into my hand.
In the cities of glass they wear this brand.
From Hy-Brasil to the virtual worlds
Where dreamers drown as they dive for pearls.
I’m gonna fire up a forge that’s real
And turn this weight into wings of steel
The lead that pinned me to the track
Will set me free.
You’re never gonna hold me back.
You’re never gonna hold me back.

The world is too big for one life
And time is never on our side.
The world is too big for one life
And time is never on our side.
I lived a whole life through the moment I first saw you
And my hunger won’t be denied.

Floating intangible in dreams,
In my dreams.

It’s hard to take each day as it comes when you’re
Looking for the love you need.
But we carry all our paths inside
It’s all in me, and it’s all you need.
Track Name: Hearts Are Hollow
Through with my own company
I heard the jokes, they were all on me
Freedom never felt so solitary
This shade of loneliness looks dull on me.

Wolves who smile through gritted teeth
Those eyes with daggers hid beneath
Who needs friends with enemies like these
They give me all the incentive I could need.

Dig up all the bones you need
The same old eccentricities
It’s been this way for a thousand centuries
No safety rail, no prize, no guarantees.

Come wallow in my sorrow
You’ll be my feast tomorrow
Where I lead dare you follow
To a place where hearts are hollow.

Tarot cards and self improvement books, horoscopes and the suffrage movement.
You’re equipped but you don’t use it
Did this path choose you or you choose it?
Use it
Choose it
Abuse it
Lose it
Use it
Choose it
Abuse it
Lose it

Come wallow in my sorrow
You’ll be my feast tomorrow
Where I lead dare you follow
To a place where hearts are hollow.
Track Name: Raven
Rivers reverse to welcome him.
The unnamed prince, the raven king.
In his red courtyard corpses swing
To the rhythm of the chaos that he brings with him.

Sky will speak to earth and stone.
Calculate his safe return.
From the sea will rise his throne.

Angels of mist guide his ships in.
All compasses are set to spin.
His schemes tattooed upon the skin
Of those who serve beneath his velvet wing.

Sky will speak to earth and stone.
Calculate his safe return.
From the sea will rise his throne.

Birds ride across the sky, circling.
Fingers in the trees beckoning
For his sweet return, the quickening.
Clouds paint an amulet of summoning.
And we will summon him.
And we will summon him.
We will summon him.

Sky will speak to earth and stone.
Calculate his safe return.
From the sea will rise his throne.
And we will summon him.
And we will summon him.
We will summon him.
Track Name: Themis
You hold the scales.
Balance my crimes.
Themis made flesh
Under the strip light.

Show me the cliff from which I’ll be pushed.
Show me the rocks on which I’ll be crushed.
It’s the wrong century to run away to sea
But that’s where your mind goes...
Doesn’t it …doesn’t it? Oh

At the place where the sea swallows the sun,
A firefly extinguished by the closing of a fist.
The sea turns black and my heart turns blue
Left here all alone with the ghost of you.

It’s the wrong century to run away to sea
But that’s where your mind goes...
Doesn’t it …doesn’t it?

And I’ll hold my breath
‘til the tide brings you in.
Return to me, return to me,
Take your place beneath my skin.
Return to me
Track Name: How Vampires Kiss
Stockholm Syndrome
Misplaced loyalty
Take risks as an art form
Lose all liberties.
Too much confusion
Too much empathy
Swinging in ribbons
To extremities

You had me walking a razor wire.
Took out a contract on desire.
Well this must be how vampires kiss,
With your hands round my neck
I shake like this.

Three years to wake up
Three minutes to suffocate
Three seconds to break up
Three days to dehydrate
Three weeks without food
Three words to defend
Three sacks of blackmail
No feelings at the end.

You had me walking a razor wire.
Took out a contract on desire.
You want promises, here's my best
You bit me but I'm not possessed.
You had me walking a razor wire
Took out a contract on desire
Well this must be how vampires kiss,
With your hands round my throat
I shake like this.

A flick of the wrist
A flick of the wrist
A flick of the wrist
Feels just like
A kiss with a fist…
A kiss with a fist…
A kiss with a fist…
Feels just like
A flick of the wrist
A flick of the wrist
A flick of the wrist

You had me walking a razor wire.
Took out a contract on desire.
You want promises, here's my best
You bit me but I'm not possessed.
You had me walking a razor wire
Took out a contract on desire
Well this must be how vampires kiss,
With your hands round my throat
I shake like this.
I shake like this.
I shake like this!
Track Name: If Wishes Were Bullets
Got a new taste in my mouth.
This time I don’t wanna spit it out.
I don’t know how it happened.
I was losing the battle.
I became resigned to a state of mind.
Came from nowhere
I don’t know how
So don’t struggle
You got me now
I don’t know where you came from
But I know it don’t feel wrong
All that I can do is give myself to you.

Can I trust it?
Is it real?
Will it leave me in mourning?
All of this new blood I feel,
Is it a slow killing poison?
Woah, woah, oh

If wishes were bullets we’d all be dead.
Prayers come soaring way overhead.
Confronted with substance, I double take.
If this is an error it’s mine to make.
Straight in the vein so I look away.
Pain never comes and there’s no restraint.
Intoxicated but I don’t faint.
I count up my fingers and all the saints.

Can I touch it?
Is it real?
Didn’t come with a warning.
All of this new blood I feel,
Is it a slow killing poison?
Can I trust it?
Is it real?
Will it leave me in mourning?
All of this new blood I feel,
Is it a slow killing poison?
Woah, woah
Track Name: What A Heart Is For
Take a shot if you think you’re tough
It takes skills to trip me up
Cos I am not an ordinary girl.
Let me know when you’ve had enough
You’re my loss I’m your head fuck
We can’t exist together in this world.

What’s delicate can’t be confused with a fault that needs constraining.
Your get out cards have all been used with just the truth remaining.
You know how to make me cry, you cut me down but I don’t die
And god knows how hard we both tried to find a shred worth saving

You think you know what a heart is for
But you nailed yours to my door.
I never asked you to and that’s for sure.
Tell the earth that it can’t spin
Persuade me that you can win.
I make up my own mind and that’s the law.

What’s delicate can’t be confused with a fault that needs constraining.
Your get out cards have all been used with just the truth remaining.
You know how to make me cry, you cut me down but I don’t die
And god knows how hard we both tried to find a shred worth saving

It takes a death, it takes a war,
A sacrifice, a need for more,
to show us what a heart is for.
But sad to say that no one’s sure
Tell me what a heart is for
It takes a loss, it takes a war,
A sacrifice, a need for more
But s‘till we’re not exactly sure.

You think you know what a heart is for,
Ripped it out and nailed it to my door.
You should take better care of yours
Before it slips from your sleeve down to the floor.
You think you know what a heart is for,
Ripped it out and nailed it to my door.

What’s delicate can’t be confused with a fault that needs constraining.
Your get out cards have all been used with just the truth remaining.
You know how to make me cry, you cut me down but I don’t die
And god knows how hard we both tried to find a truth worth saving.
Track Name: Sound In Colour
I don’t need a place to sleep in.
Find me hanging from your ceiling.
Hook me up when I need feeding
Mouth tastes like my brain is bleeding.

I saw sound in colour.
You were terrifying.
Seething, breathing fire.
Your forked tongue was lying.

On the table bread is breathing.
In the bushes creatures breeding.
On the floor where I am kneeling
Watching all the layers peeling.

I saw sound in colour.
You were terrifying.
Seething, breathing fire.
Your forked tongue was lying.

Get through to the dawn,
That’s when I’ll be leaving.
Get through to the dawn,
That’s when I’ll be leaving.
Get through to the dawn,
That’s when I’ll be leaving.
Get through to the dawn,
That’s when I’ll be leaving.
I have to make it through,
I’m looking for some detachment,
And when the cycle breaks
I will never fall
I will never crawl again.

I saw sound in colour.
You were terrifying.
Seething, breathing fire.
Your forked tongue was lying.
