Track Name: It Comes to This
Take me to the edges of the all permissive sea,
so few like to visit where the killers are set free
to smash up all the windows of your opportunities

In this world the choice is yours,
which kind of fool a saint or a whore
in this world your choice is free,
which kind of fiend are you going to be

In this realm of monsters well there is one certain sin
never leave the tracks exposed that show where you have been
somewhere theres a carpet and a body wrapped within

in this world a life is cheap
cheaper still are the lies we keep
in this world your choice is made
laugh or cry blossom or fade

I have lots of little answers and I keep them in my coat
I give them free to girls and boys I shove them down their throats
someday they'll regurgitate the wisdom I once spoke

in this world your choice is made
laugh or cry blossom or fade
in this world it comes to this
just lie back and don't resist
Track Name: Love, She Said
Your beauty cannot be surpassed, you have me in a spell,
And what that spell can mean to us, well time can only tell,
Time, she said is just the way we’ve organized our mind,
And Faith will not be recognized, by those who are not blind

Love, She Said is just a dream of a princess long ago,
And fate is just for selling bits of wisdom to the slow
Truth is just the fiction that perception is the word,
And fear, of course, the cattle brand, the dogs that drive the herd.

So where are we my bonny lass, said I unsure afraid,
Are we just the bits of flesh that randomness has made?
Or can our beings intertwine to make us greater still,
Or are these the lies of the bartender who’s making out the bill.

You are me and I am you she said without a pause,
Connected through infinities of effect and cause,
Each of us an island that’s the hard unspoken rule,
And he who builds a boat, she said, is both a saint and fool.

Don’t you know that I have seen the contents of your soul,
And don’t you know that I have dreamed of futures we may hold
See here on my sleeve these are the stains of deeds undone,
Am I all the others though you tell me I’m the one.

And so we drank and danced and fucked
And so we laughed and sang
While over us a shadow loomed that grew and then took wing,
Speaking tounges and volumes to our unconscious minds at play.
We must keep on dancing ‘til the shadow names the day.

We must keep on dancing ‘til the shadow names the day
Track Name: The Lily
Love without passion as desire flows away,
Growth ends decay begins

The lily is cut too soon
Blossoming it fades
Again, again, and again

Evening sets, Dawn begins anew
This day is different than before
It’s light is different than before
Track Name: Dementish Waltz
The night that we met, well she looked so divine
I knew I must have her, I would make her mine
She followed me home autumn rain in the sky
a beautiful girl with tears in her eyes
and everyone's sacred behind the disguise,
Especially the girl with tears in her eyes
That beautiful girl with tears in her eyes.

That night for a moment as we reached for the moon
Something leapt from our souls and combined in the room.
by the cool morning light the indifferent sky
found only two vessels left empty inside.
both of us whispering our uncertain lies
trying to hide from the tears in her eyes
a beautiful girl with tears in her eyes

A bold heart is filled with fantastic dreams
no room here for her, and none there for me
she swore that she'd break me then fell to my spell
a beautiful girl has secrets to tell
and everyone's sacred, behind the disguise,
even the girl with tears in her eyes
especially the girl with tears in her eyes.

So boys join the queue, you'll be very impressed
by the way that she's cut and the curve of her breast
unable to see through the hollow disguise
of a beautiful girl with tears in her eyes
and everyone's sacred, but everyone lies,
even the girl with tears in her eyes
especially the girl with tears in her eyes.
that beautiful girl with tears in her eyes
a poor lonely fool with the tears in her eyes
Track Name: Alone
This cross I bear is yours to share
remember dear we’re all in this alone.

Love is life and life is short
A force of will for less would be unkind

Fall together now fall apart
An open heart like squeezing blood from stone

Don’t look back the past is there
Gnawing on the bones you threw behind

This cross I bear is yours to share
Remember dear we’re all in this Alone

A loveless game the masters joy
A wishing well, The queen will take the pawn

A Human sound, Let Silence stand
A bird in hand is safer left at home.

This dream is lost a cock has crowed
A mission bell has paid this toll move on

This cross I bear is yours to share
Remember dear we’re all in this Alone

Love and life are on the line
Step in time and watch it all flow by

Is all of life but a dream
with a final scene that leaves us wondering why
