Lyrics

So Mote It Be

Dead leaves fall from weeping trees
Who tell omens of winter breeze
And tales of lost philosophies
Revealed forgotten prophecies

Of what I’ve willed my eyes may see
So mote it be

In their sadness grey and cold
As madness passes, branches grow
I long for their stability
They long to cry and dance like me

At home, alone, in pairs, at sea
So mote it be

My will shall be done on earth
As it is done in heaven
Five, believe, belong to me
So mote it be

What I’ve willed my eyes may see
So mote it be

What I’ve willed my eyes may see

 

Zombie Paradise

Diamonds shine like angels in the winter time
Dedicate the mind, turn water into wine
Hear the words I say; will you wonder or obey?
Systematic playground; we’ll find another way than this

Zombie paradise
Have we surrendered?
Oh, have we lost this fight?
Peeled eyes
Dead wanderers
In fluorescent daylight

Choke on weeds; justice in the street
Follow leaders, water the next seed
Running, running, running from our misery
Join these creatures or step carefully in this

 

Sad Girl

I justified my goodbye
You sat there and cried like you care
About me; but do you care about us?;
About you?-the one I only wished I could run home to
I’m too much for you

Now I’m not your bad girl anymore
Fighting to keep my tears off the floor
I became a Sad Girl and you know
How to make me smile, baby, but you don’t
I won’t be your Sad Girl anymore

Breathe silent lies; I’m no do-or-die
I’ve given birth, I can’t be your earth
You held me; I held on, and headstrong I lead you
I’m too tired to keep telling you what to do
I need help too

 

Black Magic

The real world is a scary place
Contouring can’t protect your face
From the harsh blows of reality
And fluorescent light; it’s a losing fight

I could sell my soul and win the rights
I could take you down and face the risk
Of losing myself after midnight
In this world peace does not exist
War’s the only way to win this
Black magic

Daydreaming of sweet light and love
But that which is below is like that which is above
Retrace blind faith in the new age
Gods give me the key to my own cage

I’ll never run away
Now this is my life
And I’m going to fight the right way
This world knows no justice
I must take control of this

 

How To Survive

It only rains here
For something worth the pain here
For what I haven’t buried here

I’ve been hard like a diamond inside my mind
On a string to the things that can’t me cry anymore
I’ve opened my own doors all my life
This is how to survive

They say I should do stand-up
Don’t pull the trigger, I have got my hands up
“Pull the trigger”, voice commands us

 

Closing Door

Panic and tears woke me up in bed
I wrote the words spinning in my head
I really thought we’d struck a gold mine this time
Stayed ’til we turned up dead

Would you fight like a brave knight?
No, you see the light when it’s not right anymore
On the closing door

Waited for stars and a broken moon
Words are just words and we spoke too soon
It’s a short life, treat it like deadline’s getting tight
You’re responsible for your wounds

Would you light up the dark night?
No, you see the light when it’s not right anymore
Would you fight like a brave knight?
No, you see the light when it’s not right anymore
On the closing door

I’m anxious and depressed, but my heart- it doesn’t rest
We’re not the same like I thought we were
I didn’t know your middle name
Until we booked a flight to Mexico
Or all your soul until I let you go

 

Exiled

Exiled
Breathe shallow on my inner child
Running wild, existential denial

You never learned what love means
Force submerged from late teens
You never learned what love means
Exiled

Take notice
I know you, I could know this
Control less, feel this, I can handle this
Unlock the abyss

 

Rise

These feelings I can’t put in words have the urge to be heard
Ego falling
We’re one and when you hurt, I hurt even worse; lover’s curse
Rise, darling

And I don’t know why we’re alive
But it’s our time to rise
Bright eyes light up dark skies
I need yours looking in mine tonight

Put in words, put in words
Our time to be heard
Falling
Curse lovers worse, even hurt
When we’re one and we’re
Rise, rise, rise, darling

 

Sex is Our Religion

I tell you you’re strange
I know it makes your heart race like salvation, baby
Baptized with your prize while rhythmical
Convinced yourself I’m a mythical deity

Don’t ask me to smile, I’m blessed with insanity
Sweet love’s not enough; sin and lay hands on me

Left/right/black/white/lies/hell/glamour/and chains
I don’t care if you love me, but hallowed be my name
Burn pages of phrases I say
Sex is our religion, bow down and let us pray

I’m on fire; are you tired of the lust?
And what the hell is trust?
Your bread’s my body, baby
Your wine’s my blood
Don’t you want my love?
We’re holy light when we’re in flight, baby

Love is patient, love is kind
But I’m bound to earth where love is in the mind
Don’t kiss me so much; heal me with your touch

 

The Decree

Put your head down
Don’t make a sound
It’s easier to swallow
Promises of peace
If you follow

All will come back at me
And I see what I need
Do I leap or let it be?
Leaving the agony
To heed the decree
We abhor yet allow it to be

I’m haunted by the books on shelf
And I blame myself
Tangled in the relief of release
From the daylight, from the inner fight
Slave to wages underpaid,
To time, and pain
Don’t die afraid

Do you see what we allow to be; you and me?

 

Afraid of the Dark

You lead me down a path I willingly followed
And let all the turmoil and games truly swallow me
You knew just what you were doing
But I refused to see the cruel in you
I was ruled by you

I would spend forever on my hair
And follow you everywhere like a little girl
You were my world when I was so lost and scared
You put me down, pushed me around, in and out the door
But I’m not afraid of the dark anymore

You still can’t accept that I left because you were awful to me
And called me names in front of my baby
So you took to spreading false rumours; textbook abuser
And you still deny and live by your lies

I would spend forever on my face
That you spit in like a disgrace
And played it off at any cost
Just to keep me in my place
You put me down, pushed me around, in and out the door
But I’m not afraid of the dark anymore

You know that I never cared about the ring
I just wanted proof that you loved me the way you love money and shiny things
You hate that I sing. So I’ll sing about you and what you put me through

 

Alchemical Warfare

Two mirrors on the wall
Black and white, rise and fall
Is time running out?
I know about nothing but nothing
Immortal or old
Hearts of lead we’re turning to gold

Battle in the mind
In the world outside
Gunshots echo insecure voice
Power divine is my weapon of choice

Terror of disease
And terror of cure
On a scale of right to wrong
All is sure of nothing but nothing
Immortal or old
Hearts of lead we’re turning to gold

Dirt of the graveyard, swell of the sea
Flame of the ritual fire, wind: I send thee
To serve this justice, I am free
To take control of this power in me
