1. DARK SNOW

I wanted to take you
From those robes to feel the cold
Undressing the blessings
Feels like my afterlife, my afterlife

I go on
Yet on that night I went down with the lights
Somehow, over and over
I go on
They carried me out when the lights went out
Over, I’m over

I wanted to keep you
But I was told you’d grown too old
For someone who stayed young by bleeding light
My afterlife... is black and cold

I go on
Yet on that night I went down with the lights
Somehow, over and over
I go on
They carried me out when the lights went out
Over, I’m over

I go on
Yet on that night I went down with the lights
Somehow, over and over
I go on
They carried me out when the lights went out
Over, I’m over


2. STILL A STRANGER

There is a mis-, misunderstanding that there’s a bliss beneath it all
That every time it’s never ending, there is a kiss to change us all.
It’s in the dark, it’s in your photo that keeps falling from the wall.
Tell me it’s better way up there. I need you. I need you. I need you to tell me…

Does it feel the same
After healing fame
And all the strange, strange, strange behavior?
Does it make it worse?
They mispronounce the hurt.
I feel so strange. I’m still a stranger.

Is there the mis-, misunderstanding that there’s a hit of healing light?
Tell me the cuts finally stop showing before we kiss, again, the night.
Here in the dark, tripping your picture I keep rehanging on the wall,
I need you better way up there. I need you. I need you better.

Does it feel the same
After healing fame
And all the strange, strange, strange behavior?
Does it make it worse?
They mispronounce the hurt.
I feel so strange. I’m still a stranger.

Does it feel the same?
Would I feel like you?
Because I still feel strange.
Are you a stranger too? (I’m still a stranger)
I wish it mattered more (I’m still a stranger)
But I never will be you.
I always feel so fucking strange.
Are you a stranger too?

I’m still a stranger.
I’m still a stranger. (Are you a stranger?)

Does it feel the same
After healing fame
And all the strange, strange, strange behavior?
Does it make it worse?
They mispronounce the hurt.
I feel so strange. I’m still a stranger.

I’m still a stranger.
I’m still a stranger.


3. AURELIA

Aurelia, the new wolves await
Aurelia, they brought you new chains

They're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
And you sing along

Aurelia, dream animals' wills
Are real enough to make the slow kill

They're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
And you sing along

Can you see at night?
We can see at night
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh
Can you see at night?
We can see at night
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh

And we're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
They're barking in the wrong key
And you sing along
And you sing along
And you sing along
They're barking in the wrong key
And you sing along


4. HIDDEN KNIVES

I’ll scratch a mystery just please continue
On with your crime. It’s not that I don’t mind.
Or, if you prefer, I’ll pen a murder
To pass your time - your empty time.

I left a little something on the altar for you.

So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you will find them
(My hidden knives)
So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you'll find them
And we’ll put pen to page

There is no mystery in my cadence.
I’ve penned the end over smarter lines
But we both prefer romantic murder
To erase time and my, my empty life.

I left a little something on the table for you.

So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you will find them
(My hidden knives)
So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you'll find them
And we’ll put pen to page

Oh, you know me well.
(Oh, you know me well)
Oh, you know me well.
(Oh, you know me well)
Well enough to find
(Oh, you know me well)
Surely sharpened knives.

I left a little something on the table for you.

So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you will find them
(My hidden knives)
So poorly I’ve hidden knives
You will find them, you'll find them
And we’ll put pen to page


5. GET HURT

Here in the world of words unspoken we’ve broken down
Let’s take that defective heart apart
Out of the light - a final showing
We’re closing down and to get that faulty heart to start

Follow me down the road.
I’m promising I will be a good boy.

I can’t let you see, I can’t let you see
I can’t let you see me sleeping.
I can’t let you see, I may have to leave.
I can’t let you see me sleeping.

Here in the world of words unspoken we’ve broken down
And to get that faulty heart to start
Enter this house of empty movements
We’re losing every faint sense of who we were. We are.

Follow me to this room.
Promise me you will keep your eyes closed.

I can’t let you see, I can’t let you see
I can’t let you see me sleeping.
I can’t let you see, I may have to leave.
I can’t let you see me sleeping.

I can’t let you see me
I can’t let you see me
I can’t let you see me sleep.
With my mouth agape.
Don’t watch me too closely.

I can’t let you see, I can’t let you see
I can’t let you see me sleeping.
I can’t let you see old blood on my teeth.
I can’t let you see me sleeping.

I can’t let you see me sleeping.
I can’t let you see me sleeping.


6. ABOVE THE BRIDGE

It’s too much to take, the thought of it all. Release me distraction.
It’s too much to take, the thought of my fall, shameful attraction.
What happened to the place I’d hide? Who taught you how to sneak inside?
It’s too much to take. It’s too much to take.

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above that bridge.

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above our bridge.
And I’ve floated since that day.

It’s too much to take, the thought of it all. Release me distraction.
It’s too much to take, the thought of my fall, shameful attraction.
What happened to the place I’d hide? I taught you how to sneak inside.
It’s too much to take. It’s too much to take. It’s too much to take. It’s too...

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above that bridge.

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above our bridge.
And I’ve floated since that day.

I thought I saw the sky
I thought I saw the sky
I thought I saw the sky
Behind your eyes.

I thought I saw the sky
I thought I saw the sky
I thought I saw the sky
Behind your eyes.

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above that bridge.

I saw you step upon that bridge.
I saw you walk across that bridge.
I saw you float above our bridge.
And I’ve floated since that day.


7. SO BENEATH YOU

I don’t believe that I can stay here
And watch them vilify my blood.
I don’t believe that you are with me.
It’s so beneath you, gazing up.

I won’t kneel.
I won’t bow.
If you’re there now
Strike me down, strike me down, strike me down
Oh, you’ve got nothing.

There is none higher than this blood
And I won’t serve anyone.
No there is nothing above
And I don’t serve anyone, anyone.

There's nothing above

Deep in my heart, a disbeliever
Only inviting in the truth.
You’re in my heart, my disbeliever,
As holy horror crushes you.

I won’t kneel.
I won’t bow.
No one is there to
Strike me down, strike me down, strike me down
Except the faithful.

There is none higher than this blood
And I won’t serve anyone.
No there is nothing above
And I don’t serve anyone, anyone.

I don’t believe that I can stay here
And watch them vilify my blood.
I don’t believe that I can stay here
And watch them vilify your love, my love.

I won’t kneel.
I won’t bow.
If you’re there god
Strike me down, strike me down
You won’t

There is none higher than this blood
And I won’t serve anyone.
No there is nothing above
And I don’t serve anyone, anyone.

There’s nothing above


8. SNOW CATS

Am I coy enough? Not boy enough?
You wanted me in this dress
Or nothing else you say I am
I am not scared enough, prepared enough
You wanted me in distress?
I've nothing left to fear
I am, I am here

I'll wait for you another night
(As you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white
I'll wait for you some other night
(Dressed as you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white

Am I loud too much and proud too much?
You wanted me in this stance
Or on my back you said I am
I am not read enough in bed enough
I've given up on romance
I've nothing left for love
I am, I am here

I'll wait for you another night
(As you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white
I'll wait for you some other night
(Dressed as you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white

Who's to say when the cats are away
What they say, what they say
We won't come back
Who's to say when the cats are away
We won't come back
What they say, what they say
We won't come back
Who's to say when we cats are away
We won't come back
What we say, what I say
I won't stay

I'll wait for you some other night
(Dressed as you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white
I'll wait for you some other night
(As you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white
I'll wait for you

I'll wait for you
(As you like)
Dressed in Himalayan white


9. DUMB KIDS

Up until the day you met the family
You’d never felt that pain begin to drain, oh!
And up until the day you sold the family
You’d kept that fractured face from being shown.

Let’s play
Turn to stone
Like you played with broken bones.
Now finally you can see me turn to stone.

Up until the day you cracked the fountain
I’d never felt my life drain in that way, oh!
Up until that day you tainted the water
You’d kept that average face from being shown.

Let’s play
Turn to stone
Like you played with broken bones.
Now finally you can see me turn to stone.

Whoa
Dumb kids
Dumb kids
Were we only playing like dumb kids?
Dumb kids
Dumb kids

Let’s play
Turn to stone
Like you played with broken bones.
Now finally you can see me turn to stone.

Were we only playing like dumb kids?
Dumb kids
Were we only playing like dumb kids?
Dumb kids
Dumb kids


10. PINK EYES

Not addicted to night, afraid of the morning
{That} I awake and feel like someone is here
But I’m laying right out, going darker and darker.
When my skin peels away roses appear and I’ll turn over.

Find me in the corner of the round room
Reaching into dawn to find night blooms.

Beauty, how you blind!
Give me a reason.
Without sight,
I will ever find you.
And how you blind!
I know the reason
I can’t stop touching my eyes.

I’m allied to the night and warring the morning.
I retreat into the dark if someone is near.
You can lay me right out with the right kind of flower.
When my senses slip away lilies appear.

In the hot house you’ll find me
Staring at the end, again, in rapture.

Beauty, how you blind!
Give me a reason.
Without sight,
I will ever find you.
And how you blind!
I know the reason
I can’t stop

I lick my fingers
(Lick my fingers)
Make my tongue go numb
(Make my tongue go numb)

I chew you from beneath my nails
(Make my tongue go numb)
Put your petals in my mouth.

Put your petals in my mouth.

Beauty, how you blind!
Give me a reason.
Without sight,
I will ever find you.
And how you blind!
I know the reason
I can’t stop touching my eyes.


11. FEED FROM THE FLOOR

Dust on dust, in a new room,
First impressions of the sun
Burnt the skin now are buried.
We’ve been staring up too long.

Eyes gone dry. No more tears.
Salt and shame upon my tongue.
Dust on dust, drying flowers.
We’ve been coming here too long.

Here in the golden mirror
Watch every word you say
Shatter and find a way
To cut like golden days.

Flesh on flesh on the dry earth.
Our reflections are the same -
Wearing dust, match the desert.
Past is captured as it’s made

In your image, like an actress
Lying to protect her age.
Dust on lens. Dying flowers.
We shall not return again.

Here in the golden mirror
Watch every word you say
Shatter and find a way
To cut like golden days.

Watching as I fade,
Fading as I’m watching every word I say,
Loving how I fade, fading like a flower
Knowing that the rain...

That the rain may fall too late
It can’t revive our dying flowers.
Rain may fall…
Too late, this is our final hour.

Here in the golden mirror
Watch every word you say
Shatter and find a way
To cut like golden days.

Watching as I fade,
Fading as I’m watching every word I say,
Loving how I fade, fading like a flower
Knowing that the rain

Here in the golden mirror
Watch every word you say
Shatter and find a way
To cut like golden days.


12. WHITE OFFERINGS

If I were only
If I were only here I'd try
I'd try to give you paper birds I've made
Oh, everyone takes flight never to return again

White offerings are all I bring
Welcome to white room, white room
White offerings are all I bring
I welcome you, I offer you this white room

If I were only
If I were only here I'd try
I'd try to gift you paper birds I free
And you'd set fire to my sky
Oh, but I will offer you

White offerings are all I bring
Welcome to white room, white room
White offerings are all I bring
I welcome you, I offer you this white room

I can feel your color changing
I can feel your color changing
I can feel your color changing
I can feel it change

White offerings are all I bring
Welcome to white room, white room
White offerings are all I bring
I welcome you, I offer you this white room

White
White room
White room
White offerings are all I bring
I offer you this white room


13. SHE SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE

If you’d tell me it’s real
I can make an appeal
To the controlling fragile child.
Let me speak. He won’t make sense
Until we reach the consequence.
It’s voluntary like your smile,
As he quakes.

Now I know
This must be love.
Now I know
Now I know
This, this must be love.
Now I know
This must be love.

This must be love.
Oh.

When you dared me to feel,
When I made that appeal
To the incorrigible child
You stuffed his mouth with dirty rags
And tied his head within a bag
Pitch black and silken like your smile.
He’s silent…

Now I know
This must be love.
Now I know (oh)
Now I know
This, this must be love.
Now I know

Little drops upon my cuffs
(Little drops upon my cuffs)
Let me know this must be love.
Red, red, drops upon my cuffs
(Red, red, drops upon my cuffs)
Let me know this must be love.
Now I know this must be...
This must be love

Now I know
This must be love.
Now I know (oh)
Now I know
This, this must be love.
Now I know
This must be love.

Little drops upon my cuffs
(Little drops upon my cuffs)
This must be love.
Let me know this must be love.
This must be love.
Red, red, drops upon my cuffs
(Red, red, drops upon my cuffs)
This must be love.
Let me know this must be love.
Now I know this must be...
This must be love


14. THE WIND THAT CARRIES ME AWAY

Wrap the sky in your arms.
Hold it to you heart.
Turn the dust to diamonds
And here we finally part.

And here we finally part.
And here we finally part.

And the wind that brought me down
Cannot stay.
And the wind that carried me out
Carries me away, carries me away.

Crush the dust in your hand.
Hold it to your heart.
Promises mean nothing
Until we finally part.

And here we finally part.

And the wind that brought me down
Cannot stay.
And the wind that carried me out
Carries me away, carries me

And the blood (blood) runs (runs)
Further into blind eyes.
And the blood (blood) runs (runs)
Faster than we can.

And the wind that brought me down
Cannot stay.
And the wind that carried me out
Carries me away, carries me away.

Carries me away.
