The Perfect Pair

     And I saw it rising
     Both black and blue
     Gold fingers clawing
     So trashy and true
     And I saw it falling
     So brittle through
     A dying calling
     So needy too

     A dying calling
     So needy too

     A dying calling
     So needy too

     It's standing
     It breathing
     Not daring, not new
     With the clawing bleeding
     Don't you love it too

     With the clawing bleeding
     Don't you love it too

     With the clawing bleeding
     Don't you love it

     With the clawing bleeding
     Don't you love it too


     Here we lie
     We both know
     You with your back turned towards me
     Me with the light-borne halo

     Smile, then curl
     And hope it doesn't show
     You with your breath held tightly
     Me with my grip on the pillow

     Why this time
     Always the last to know
     Wait till there's no more crying
     Weight bearing down
     Weight bearing down

     Weight bearing down below?

     Here we lie 
     And now I know
     With your back turned towards me
     With the light-borne halo
     It seems to fade so slow

     Here with your back turned towards me
     Here with the light-borne halo
     It seems to fade so slow

     Now 
     What you're saying
     Isn't really
     Everything

     And
     What I'm hearing
     Isn't even
     What it seems

     Sphere
     What you're showing
     Even light light can't 
     Make it clear

     Say
     Your mouth is open
     But the meaning is what I
     Hear and I listen
     But the actions are what I
     See what you're doing
     It's so easy
     It's so stupid
     You, you know what you're doing
     Keep it easy
     Keep it stupid

     I slit my own tongue
     Lop off my right ear
     Cut out my left eye
     I, I burned out my tongue
     Ripped my left ear
     And sealed my right eye
     You, you want it simple
     Want it easy
     Want it stupid
     You, you make it simple
     Make it easy 
     Make it stupid
     La la la la la 
     La la la



A Blinding

     It's funny when the body floats down the river 
     After thinking that nothing has happened for so long


     They've all sickness around your sights
     And we don't give a damn anymore
     Them: don't trust us around the store
     And we: feeling better

     Even staring into darkness
     Once can find you
     Staring where no light can find you
     Staring where no light can find you

     They: tries harder to tip the scales
     And whine forever
     She cry louder all the time
     And beat you all

     Even staring into darkness
     Once can find you
     Staring where no light can find you x4
       


Angel's Code

     Angels always fly around in my head
     Singing songs of happiness for the dead
     Singing songs of praise that it would never happen again
     Angels always fly around in my head
     Crying out for something different
     And they cry
     They cry

     And they cast a shadow
     It doesn't seem so long
     All over this song
     And then it's gone

     Songs so develish 
     So innocent
     Like presents left under a bed
     Angels fly around in my head
     They whisper
     And offer
     Another sick memory
     For the kill

     And they cast a shadow
     It doesn't seem so long
     All over this song
     And then it's gone

     And they cast a shadow



Lover's Leap

     
     Happy once
     Or was I lying
     The meeting of the minds
     Didn't work then
     But I kept trying
     Just a matter of time
     Then deaf to pleading
     And dumb to nothing
     Anything at all 
     For the faith
     The tale is always what I want to make it
     The trick is knowing how to blame the other

     You hit me like I'm crawling
     I jump and stand here by you
     We'll stay together always falling
     Because I know you

     Beat the shit out of me
     Once or twice but I'll keep smiling
     That's just my lover's touch
     The truth is hidden behind the crying
     It never really hurt that much

     You hit me like I'm crawling
     Yes I know you're sorry
     We'll leap together always falling
     Best of all the stories


Even This Day


     She said
     That we'd laugh about it
     One day, one year
     And no one knows the entrance
     So nothing to fear

     He said
     He knew about it
     Today would be thrice my dear
     Only this time is different
     I've got the scriptures right here

     Even this day
     The end with cries of birds to listen to and
     Even this day
     Began with sun and dew and glisten

     She said 
     She knew the way to
     Tell if God loved my soul
     She had to wrap me in barb wire
     Then laughing she blest all the holes

     He said 
     He'd found a way to prove his undying love for me
     So after praying for guidance
     Was told to lay there and bleed 

     Even this day
     Would end in cries no one would listen to
     Even this day
     Would end with wolves and blood not glisten

     Even this day
     Began with pleas that God would listen
     Even this day
     Began with sun and light and reason
     Even this day
     Would end with pleas that God would listen
     Would end with pleas that God would listen



Holy Sugarwater


     I can change the past
     Have the power in my hand
     Stare into my wine glass
     Do as I command

     Only sugarwater
     Holy sugarwater

     The tale is slowly growing
     Waive my hand and sprinkle fairy dust
     Click my boots three times before going
     These facts are tokens not to trust

     Only sugarwater
     Holy sugarwater

     There's only one
     Only one
     There's only one we know

     There's only one
     Only one
     There's only one we know

     Me it's mine
     It's me it's mine
     Don't ask about it 
     One more time

     Only sugarwater
     Holy sugarwater

     There's only one
     Only one
     There's only one we know



Flowering Blight


     The state and all it's friends are sowing again
     The voice of greed and guile is crowing once again
     As though the raping and the good times could never end
     The march or progress has no conceince
     Only friends

     Sell off tomorrow
     Then sell it again

     The plague of arrogance is growing again
     An insane point of view is showing teeth again
     Smother the healthy with a seething distrust and then
     Pour fear and shame upon the others
     Unjust: the end

     Sell off all
     Sell off tomorrow again
     Go fuck what you know
     Sell out tomorrow and then
     Sell out again

     Go fuck what you know
     Sell off tomorrow
     Sell out tomorrow again

     Go fuck what you know
     Sell off tomorrow
     Sell out tomorrow again
     And again


The Wasteland


     The sun does shine
     A ray to follow 
     For others
     As though their living was a meaning for anything

     And give your hand
     Shiny pearl of pleasure
     Able and ready as far as it needs to be
     Here today
     As alays the same
     As always
     It's easy to pull the trigger and make it all go away
     Make it go away
     And melt into another
     Disappearing day
     Forever

     And here we stand 
     In the middle of nothing
     Spoonfed and babied as far as the eye can see
     Here today
     As always the same
     As always the blame
     Is the trigger and make it all go away
     Make it go away
     And melt into another
     Disappearing day
     Forever

     And I know
     In this wasteland
     And I know
     This wasteland
     And I know
     In this wasteland
     And I know
     In this wasteland
     And I know
     In this wasteland
     And I know
     In this wasteland
