Track Name: Magnetic Angels
I'm pulled into the stained glass if by magnetic angels
I'm eternally next you I'll always cut the sun with you
happy as a martyred lucent body of the daughter
I'll always steal the sun with you
In madness I can trace you flippling through the pyschic waste
your out of body into me of course I'll split my cell with thee
haunted I am happy only happy when you haunt me
I'll always share this shell with you.
I'm the secret only you find your freak sister in the attic
suddenly you're not alone but no one else is home
sensing your perception centuries in all directions
I'll always kill the self with you
now I'm all strung out on mantras I'm a crackhead and a goddess
but I'll never share my stuff with you
Track Name: My Elf
all my friends only unholy goblins
chain me to myself in the dungeon of my mind
other girls, they're much too mortal bind me to my shell, dulling the divine
yeah you'll always be my little girl
yeah you'll always be my seadaughter
yeah you'll always be my elf to me
yeah you'll always be only to me
even when I call your name. I am calling so much more
even when I call your name, I am calling something else
even when I dig your grave, I am digging so much more
even when I dig your grave, I am digging someone else
fall so fast-feel like an apple-to the poison grass
to the hills of who I was
if you're good, or a sundress on a demoness
don't be scared, I don't care at all
I just wanna be in the sun with my three headed mermaiden
she's swinging from a two headed noose
comes the psychopomp in his coach pulled by black rabbits
take the twin shesouls but the shining third still mine
yeah you'll always be my elf to me
in the orchard munching centipedes
white asphodel, sad strawberries
dancing with your mind twine round your dreams
yeah you'll always be my chosen child
yeah you'll always be my gloomy bride
yeah you'll always be my sable flame
yeah you'll always be my tear stained grain
even when I hate you your footsteps fill with flowers
even when your evil pale roses fill your shadow
even when I curse your name, I am cursing so much more
even when I desecrate your grave pale roses fill our shadow
even when I curse, even when it hurts, I am calling you
even when I curse even when it hurts pale roses fill our shadow
Track Name: Amulet/Succubus
if I can't marry you up close I'll wed your silhouette
if I can't marry you for real I'll wed your silhouette
I'll wed the silhouette in my head I'll wed the silhouette in my head
and if we die before we meet I'll marry you in hell
and if we die before we meet I'll marry you in hell
I'll marry you in hell in my head, marry you in hell in my head
cause demons ring around my soul I wear your amulet
cause demons ring around my soul I wear your amulet
I wear your amulet round my neck, I wear your amulet round my neck
for thirteen incarnations I have loved you
thirteen million incarnations I pursue you
thirteen teardrops fall in my head,
thirteen million teardrops ever falling in my head
darling we have danced this floor before
darling we have danced this floor before
darling we have danced this floor before
darling we have danced this floor before...
Track Name: Julia
Julia, Julia
you remind me of the girl called Julia
Julia, Julia
you look so fucking much like my girl
when she was thirteen I was twelve
my Julia
that's not your real name
Julia
but I will call you
Julia, uh huh
Julia, uh huh
Julia, Julia
every tombstone seems to say
my Julia
Julia, Julia
won't you wear your hair the same way
as Julia?
That's not your real name
Julia
but I will call you
Julia, uh huh
Julia, uh huh-
Don't care about your real name
Julia
Don't tell me not to call your telephone
I will call your telephone
I will raise your skeleton
when I call your telephone
when I call you Julia
I will raise your skeleton
when I call your telephone
when I call you Julia
Julia, Julia,
Julia.
Track Name: Honeysuckle Waterfall
princess dressed in blue, I will follow you, cause I'm always confused
but it all made sense when I saw you dancing
yeah it all locked in when I saw you dancing.
I never saw hair so long you brush and braid a honeysuckle waterfalling
amber strands of autumn lose my memory in your honeysuckle waterfall
your hair is long sweet strands of spider silk and cinnamon
recall le conte du graal retrieve the silver goblet hidden in the water-
darling I could drink your dancing
darling I could drink your dancing
yeah it all made sense when I saw you dance so can it all make sense again
yeah it all locked it when I saw you dance so can it all unlock again my friend?
blue mantis in your hand thugater stolen from the apple witch rename her anything our stolen seeress pulled from sleeping witch's
fingers in my hands our little daughter baby apple witch we name her again and again, you'll always be the mother of my daughter-
and she dances like her mother
how she dances like her mother
yeah glowing plants grow where you dance so let a garden be tonight
yeah it kills myself when I watch you dance so won't you help me die tonight my friend?
darling we can live forever
darling we will live forever
Track Name: Blue Rose
something in your eye, not quite a window nor a keyhole
words I cannot find they hide like blue winged girls in a bone cathedral
though I was so high I was so low now you know oh
damsel in my mind I cast you forth oh now you wander the graveyard
as a blue rose how you weave through the headstones sweet blue rose
in the mud above my bones I feel your toes
and the shadow that you throw's my umbral twin
my reflection...
darling we can forsake every tongue we were born with
and squeak in secret code
yeah I can make you laugh like a barbarian goddess
to a joke that no one knows
a joke that no one knows
I'll see you soon, if you want me to.
tulips upon your tomb, tulips
tulips, upon your tomb, t(wo)ulips.
in another time we ride fast wild lynxes
in another life I will always love you forever
on a secret loom three witches twist our black yarn together
in another time I have always loved you forever
blue rose (wild lynxes)
blue rose (black yarn together)
from the whispers of the worms I hear your soul
from the shadow that you throw I catch your self...
hand in hand to the mysteries, red sunset licks the coins on our eyes
pomegranate footsteps in the caves of Eleusis
to a sistrum's wild time, yeah a sistrum's wild time
I'll see you soon, if you want me to.
Tulips upon your tomb tulips
best friends, skeletons, tulips
lalalalala
scorpion, orphanage, tulips
lalalalala
tulips tulips
lalalalala
tulips, tulips
