Track Name: War
In the time of great uncertainty
I am sent to watch you dear
For the elders worry terribly
For your safety and your care

Yesterday they brought the order that
I be rested at your feet
I promise to protect you from the dark
Monsters lurking from beneath

All alone
In the stream I
Come upon you
Bathing freely
Lucky me for
Having seen you
I will keep you as my own

Oh do you remember autumn leaves
How they crunch beneath your feet
How the winter chills us awfully
So I wrap you in velveteen
I will wrap you in velveteen
Track Name: The New Queen
The bells are sounding, as they herald us to thunder
A new day dawns upon this land
Our coronation sings a fever as we greet the crowd
The infidels hang in the courtyard as we take our bow

The time to reap what we have borne out of our longing
Has reached its claws upon the hour
The sound we speak has lost its way behind the veil of words
The funeral pyres light the torches as we claim the crown

(Background voice:
I don’t belong here she says
Am I a falcon, bear or lamb, a holy offering
I don’t belong here she says
Bring me the beasts so I can know which one fits into me
I don’t belong here she says
Is my beast human and if so is, might I be too)

The calmest dream descends its wave upon our glory
The mighty rise to take the reign
The dead lie stacked, the bodies raped and torn proclaim our power
In bloodied streets we dance victorious as it all burns down

(Background Voice:
I don’t belong here she says
And if he’s dead does he still feel himself inside of me
I don’t belong here she says
Am I the beacon of the living for the dead who hunger
I don’t belong here she says
The animals all raise their eyebrows as I stroll by)

Voice 1:
Spun from the gold of the dead who still speak
I offer this up to you
Inside voices singing
Inside

Voice 2:
Taking off another layer
Meow
Meow

‘Twilight dreaming on a summer’s day
It takes me out to the water
I see the reeds as they blow around
I see the reeds as they blow around’
Track Name: Skin
Be still
Don’t speak
I can see you hardening
So don’t even pretend

Don’t move
Raise your chin
I am tired of dealing with
The surfaces you breed

You won’t
Fool me
I can see you’re dirty
So don’t try that act with me

I’ll take you down
I will tear you inside out
And make you want me

That face
So sweet
I will rip the tears from you
And laugh at your defeat

Don’t try
To escape
These ropes are old and stiffening
And likely to break skin

Go on
And scream
I can see you hardening
You dirty little freak

I’ll take you down
I will tear you inside out
And make you want me
Track Name: Killer
Voice 1:

And it meets God around my saddle
Satin breeches and blouse
All God’s children take their places

In the call
Of the hunt
In the steel
Of the barrel in my mouth

In the stare
Of the one
Who is here
To carry me over to grace

All I
All I know
There’s a fiend in the flowers

And it scampers and it scampers and it scampers
Tic, toc, tic
Climb in, climb in, are we all here?

Is it God
In the light
Of the fire of the gun
When you take aim

To the fire
I belong
So I kneel
And offer myself

Where do you go
When I call
Where do you go

So I offer my self
To your self and breathe

Voice 2:

Launching shots ring out
Calling in the final, in the final in the fine
Calling in the final in the finite
Calling in the finite
Caught in the finite, in the finite, in the finite and so, so, so

Daylight touches me, does it feel
The same as I do

All we
Know here
Is we
Are caught in the finite in a cruel state
In a fantasy, in a wet dream, in a rotting shell
And teased and teased

The stars make a claim on us
Look at me up there

Oh give me your prayer
And forgive us don’t
Forgive us
Track Name: White Blood
In a pocket full of fields
You find more than you dreamed
And I begin to tell of something
That you already feel

In a cavern in the hills
Beware
I don’t know the way back to where we came
But I know something
I know something
I know where you lie when darkness falls into your heart
And there are no places to hide

In a forest full of dreams
There are secrets to behold
And the uncertainty of mazes and trees that move

I know something’s hovering
I know something calls
But all I feel’s the tide that rides and rides

(Still caught in fine circle
One call to you
And they’re forgotten
Kiss true
Runaway, come
We’re calling you)

There’s a locket full of keys
To a bounty in the dark
There’s a laughter in the
Mind of giants
Waiting in the woods
For humans to devour

(Don’t let him fall like all the rest do
I like him, let me keep this one
Please, just
Don’t let him fall like all the rest do)

If I tell you of the signs
They may lead you into nothing
If I tell you of the sounds
You might hear the beating of the drum

There’s a calling in the wind
There’s a tower in the fog
There are surfaces that rearrange all
That I cannot hide
When you close your eyes and cry
Track Name: Kinetics
Voice 1:
In caught stuck
I am in stand always rain
It’s inside I’m calm
Stare at this start
In the quarry the faces
And so many faces
It starts in here
Over the colour stone
I’m breaking so and stand
In call instant day
Do you instead
I’m pink
It started in pink
It started
It started in pink
Starling
It’s starting
It’s starting
And so
And so
It starts
So
And so the colours are falling
In ways that look like dog bait
Calling from the shore
Don’t take, don’t take
It’s dark and it’s dark and it’s dark
In the fain oh fain

Voice 2:
I’m all in this quiet place
And this skin always feels so
I forgot none
All the grace is to take
Take myself instead
Of being into the ground
‘Cos I’m not staring and watch you
Take all
They couldn’t drive us back in
Under the big
I can not see right here
So I pray to these that we live
All this fire in my brain
And I’m calling back
In it comes
Why won’t you call
I my pray to you
My hand in your core
If I must die in here
Will you call
Will you be there
I’m not standing
I’m enchained
I’m enchained
And it’s dark and it’s dark in change
Oh stupor sky and then it all started going
I’m in chains
Track Name: The Maiden
In the morning
I awaken
Senses greet the empty light
I am longing
For a promise
Of rapture

In the hours
Of abandon
I have pleaded with the night
To be taken
To the kingdom
Of the birds

The shine of my knife
Makes reflections of us
Only shows our acclaim
For a moment

Undenied I roam
Waiting patiently for
Any sign
That there may be something more

There’s a maiden
In the stables
She is wearing a bouquet
I can feel her
Trembling
In my arms

In the moment
Of the taking
She is staring at the sky
Where does she go?
Does she feel me
Still inside

The shine of my knife
Makes reflections of us
Only shows our acclaim
For a moment

Undenied I roam
Waiting patiently for
Any sign
That there may be something more

My time will come I’m sure
My time will come I’m sure

I can live forever
See me in my human suit
I can live forever
Bring me to the creature who
Is waiting, lurking
With a dagger for me
Does anything I say mean anything at all
Does anything I say mean any thing at all
This cruel, absurd, cursed, inane, intolerable, incomprehensible
sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

In the evening
We are seated
At the banquet laid in gold
Such a feast does
Please the heathen
As I stir

I will cross you
At the table
I will stab you with my fork
I will spill the
Blood I’m able
Til my time

The shine of my knife
Makes reflections of us
Only shows our acclaim
For a moment

Undenied I roam
Waiting patiently for
Any sign
That there may be something more

She paints pictures on my palms
She points to me on the spot on my hand where I live for her
She places a seed from a flower under my tongue to make me strong to her

I am strong. I am a great tower to be climbed
Little hands play with my hair. They twirl my curls around their fingers
Giggling children feel my dress, to make me real for them, to make me part of them

I am real. I am a body of blood and bones.
On skin fabric falls away from its surface. Skin bleeds, passed from brother to brother

Hands move like a knife across my throat. My knees give way to all
She paints pictures on my palms, with eyes so kind and her finger soft
I long to tear her open and swim in her entrails
Track Name: 1608
And I stand
Didn’t it rain
Didn’t it rain
Didn’t it fall

Now I’m caught in the garden
And You cold
And You cold
And You cold
And You cold
And You cold
And You cold
And You cold
Cold

I’m in the garden
And I’m in the rain at burial grounds
And I forget all your colour
And it falls
And it falls
And it falls

I’m in the garden oh
I…I call you out
Am I human
Am I human
Am I human
Am I human
Am I human
Am I human
Am I human

Undercut
Under cut

In The rain
In The rain
In the rain
In the rain
No
No

You murder my light
You murder my love
No
No

Take me in the rain
Take me in the rain
Take me in the rain
Track Name: The Gift
I dreamed a sound
So many years ago
I dreamed a sound
And now I kneel on broken glass
Before your feet
You lay your hand upon my head
In blinding light
I dreamed a sound
