Lovebirds 02:44
let the lovebirds fall in love row away in lily's pond lovely songs by songbirds sung once was a light glowing golden bright and it leaked through my holes and my pours came trickling down through the cracks in the floor i drank a rotten wine i drank a rotten wine, and it flowed through me let the lovebirds fall in love row away in lily's pond the spider and the fly and the ghost in me

the poor girl she waits, she plays with her braids she does what she can, she pines on her plans there’s nothing better than food on the plate she danced all the day until the day it flew away how long will you wait? no knight errant. love: it leaves so love the leaves. who the hell am i? only in your eyes put me aside, turn out the light. my dear old friend we're old friends just old friends we're all friends, all friends old friends give us something to count - father call your lambs down when i get myself out of this place, when i break free of all of these chains will i find you again? love left a trail of breadcrumbs for us

Black Horses 02:39
you missed a lot of my years, thats ok i'm still here. broke loose and high tailed - sight see, sight see sight see, sight seen fall out of the tree you found yourself you found yourself dead and you came alive its a sad and haunted place this fairytale life sing songs in the silence to kil the time when is well you wish for the night ~ carousel rides on the black horse you'll ride against the rising tides on the black horse you ride you found yourself dead and you came alive her paper windmill eyes spill secret lullabies spin a gentle sunrise and clear the clouds up for the daylight to shine you found yourself dead and you came alive.

The Gallows 03:18
Hats off to you my love And so the time has come Has a black cat crossed your path? I’m leaving you I know I know I know I owe nothing to the gallows I owe nothing at all I owe nothing to the gallows I’ve followed you thus far, my sword my shield my cross lay it down Lay it down Will you stop your throwing stones? I know you love me the best I know you love me the best, I love you that way too

marry these feelings of stone and of moss of the ivy that creeps and the ivy that crawls such heresy pours out from your mouth hole pale old string fingers tis tis and tic toc the memories dilate, come rushing in swelling show me a clear cut path to your skin i want to see the fruit of your carefully kept garden farewell, so long for right or for wrong i want to feel my blood flowing i want to breath it in real deep i want to feel my blood flowing i'm gonna see the grail if it kills me the wandering fool of ghost legs and old paths he's digging through all the graves, he wants it back now more than ever i need a rope i don't need no heavy rocks i am the beast that heaven dropped i don't need those heavy rocks i'm gonna see the grail if it kills

Summer Song 03:01
Rest your head mama says sleepy little baby Turn the nightlight on, sing a bedtime song The sandman will come and you’ll dream all night long Of summers to come Of castles of stone - flowers and sticks and fields to run Lovers to love, princes and frogs Papa says pray instead Else no one is gonna save you Young one, when you’re alone with all the scary monsters Out to get you. Come one Devil, Young one be strong. The summers they come the summers then gone so save your steps and save your soul - the summers they come the summers they go)))))))))) Rest your head mama said, sleepy little baby The summers they come. The summers they go find lovers to love while you’re still young I know one day little girl their ghosts will dance circles around this wooden floor I know one day little girl your ghost will dance circles around this wooden floor I know one day little girl our ghosts will dance circles around the floor Arm in arm in arm.

Fallen Kings 03:27
where has my love flown? i feel a cold, cold wind has blown candles move in the dark, i've fallen off my throne fancy you tonight, you alone and i the serpent i writhe beneath your cold feet vampires bat their eyes and show their teeth nightmares flap their wings inside of me i've fallen off my throne, fancy you tonight where has my love flown? stones for the old and aging crone - dancers faustian rags and fast asleep phantoms bow and rise in the house of creeks i've fallen off my throne

tonight will stay with me in this old house in my green room love under a halloween moon in this old house in my green room where are these happy ends? for me? for you and me? don't rush into apologies, no if you do care to dance sweep a broom and hide the clues of love under a halloween moon in my green room in my green room tonight will stay with me in this old house in my green room don't rush into your fantasy whirls, but if you do take me too take me too take me too
