We Are...

We are more than the tone of the language on our lips
& we are more than the who with which we choose to share our hips
& we are more than the nights with the lovers we have lost
& we are more than the years full of memories best forgot
& we are more than the hate when they tell us what to think
'cause we are more than the brand of the poisons that we drink
& we are more than the lies that we hide inside ourselves
'cause we are more than the truths used as weapons when we tell
& we are more than the ways in which we chose to close hearts
'cause we are more than sum of our many splintered parts
& we are more
We are more
& we amor

Of The Fear

Mind made of doubt
Eyes inside out
Tear myself in two
Turn into you

Feet pound, hands take
Lips part, hearts break

Leave Me Alone

You're just a whisper in my ear
I didn't hear what you just said
You're just a voice within my head
Another rustling of the fear
Realise I lost myself
Left my head with someone else
Now I coat my eyes with mirrors
New reflection of the fear

Of the fear...

Now I am ice
You're unsurprised
Thoughts stalking me
Uncontrollably

Please go away
Leave me to say:
Leave me alone

You're just a whisper in my ear
I didn't hear what you just said
You're just a voice within my head
Another rustling of the fear
Realise I lost myself
Left my head with someone else
Now I coat my eyes with mirrors
New reflection of the fear

You're free
I'm cheap
Fall to pieces as you speak
You think we are weak
Oh no!
Stronger victims I've never seen

Play homicide
On the sins inside
Live by the knife
Fight to save your life

New game's begun
You seek - I run

Leave me alone

You're just a whisper in my ear
I didn't hear what you just said
You're just a voice within my head
Another rustling of the fear
Realise I lost myself
Left my head with someone else
Now I coat my eyes with mirrors
New reflection of the fear

Inside Out

Run run run Ruin
Run run run Ruin
Run run run Ruin
Please Stop and
Cut me up through it
Cut me up through it
Cut me up through it
Refuse to scream

You
Tear me inside out
Can't hear me shout
I need to breathe
Your love is inside out
I'm numb to you
I watch you bleed

Eyes like ice turn me to stone
Locked inside look out
Alone
I am the dumbstruck, filthy and unseen.
Inhale your hate and
Turn away.
Blocks of fear turn into weights
So much you should have done
You run
To me

Run run run through it
Run run run through it
Run run run through it
Please Stop and
Cut me up Do it
Cut me up Do it
Cut me up
Refuse to scream

You
Tear me inside out
Can't hear me shout
I need to breathe
Your love is inside out
I'm numb to you
I watch you bleed

Wash away the big mistake
One more time around the drain
I sink
in twisted circles
into you
Abandon ship - the storm begins
Hailing down regrets
That cling like shadows on
my skin
remembers you

Cut me up Ruin
Cut me up Ruin
Cut me up Ruin
Please Stop and
Run run run through it
Run run run through it
Run run run refuse to scream

You
Tear me inside out
Can't hear me shout
I need to breathe
Your love is inside out
I'm numb to you
I watch you bleed

Arachne's Song

I might be strong but I am all threads
And I hold myself together with a web
And you pick the strands apart
Everyone unravels just a bit in the dark

A gossamer ruse...

Recoil from the colours you unmask
Fool to meddle with the scaffold of the heart
I play dead when I feel under threat
When awake, I'm my own marionette

I may be fragile, fighting through
But they say silk is bulletproof
I may be frightened facing you
Still I spin out sideways from the truth

A gossamer ruse...

I swing between the flower and the thorn
Hang resplendent with the diamonds of the morn
Then I wait to trap you in delight
Sudden does dawn's wander sicken down into night

A gossamer ruse...

And sudden do my colours re-appear
And you cry out as I'm crawling ever near
Time's too late to allow old regrets
I devoured those that I loved the best

I may be fragile, fighting through
But they say silk is bulletproof
I may be frightened facing you
Still I spin out sideways from the truth

A gossamer ruse...

Eve's Song

Bring me woman, bring me wine
Is cider sweeter than the vine?
You're twisted
round the bark
Our futures intertwined

Can I choose because I'm free?
Are you the beast inside of me?
Is this the truth that nothing ever comes for free?

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to try that taste you're offering...

Breathing with a broken rib
I lay you down in empty cribs
and Adam's apple is the only gift to give

Will you swallow? Will you choke?
The rainbow promise that God broke
Am I the bitterness you keep within your throat?

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to try that taste you're offering...

[BiteThinkFightSinkSupSeeSipLickLoveLoseLiveChooseGraspGiveBiteThink]

Eve, she wants to try that taste you're offering...
Bring me woman, bring me wine
Inside her sweeter than divine?
You're twisted
round the bar
Our futures intertwined

Can I choose because I'm free?
Are you the beast inside of me?
Is this the truth, that nothing ever comes for free?

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to try that taste you're offering...

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she seeks the snake, says, "please God give me rotten fruits to drink"

[SupSeeSipLickLoveLoseLiveChooseGraspGiveBiteThinkFightSink]

Won't you stay a while to rest?
Good and close?
Lay with me.

Won't you lay your mind to rest?
Allow to close
In a dream...

Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss...

Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss...

[BiteThinkFightSinkSupSeeSipLickLoveLooseLiveChoose]
[PleaseGodGiveMeRottenFruitsToDrinkThinkFightSink]
[SupSeeSipLickLoveLoseLiveChooseBellyDownYou'reNotSupposedToThink]

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she seeks the snake, says, "please God give me rotten fruits to drink"

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wonders why she's belly down, you're not supposed to think

Throw your face against the floor
Head in sand forever more
Forget those lies you heard, those truths you think you saw

Do you love me like a son?
Spurned and burning, am I shunned?
I'm stunned and churning but the backlash has begun

Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wants to know things
Eve, she wonders why we're belly down, you're not supposed to...

[ThinkFightSinkSupSeeSipLickLoveLoseLiveChooseGraspGiveBiteThinkFight]

Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss...

Smart Mouth

You tried to take me for a ride
All platitudes and empty lies
Your attitude's one to despise

I've come across your kind before
An outside easy to adore
A shallow shell and nothing more

Your silvered words slide round the truth
You flatter: friendliness misused
I'm not so stupid as assumed

You see your smile as the key
Unlock the world to kiss your feet
But you better watch out 'cause you've got a smart mouth
You're sharp of mind and slick in wit
I'd pay a good price just to see you slip
Trip along your own tongue and get found out

Navigating things you say
You turn the truth into a maze
That's lined with teeth and paraphrase

To sideline you and walk alone
Or take my place and laugh along
Participation's just as wrong

Every choice contains regret
Disarming charm belies the threat
But fool me once, I won't forget

You see your smile as the key
Unlock the world to kiss your feet
But you better watch out 'cause you've got a smart mouth
You're sharp of mind and slick in wit
I'd pay a good price just to see you slip
Trip along your own tongue and get found out

You've used up my trust in you
You've used up my trust in you
You've used up my trust in you
You've used up my trust in you

You see your smile as the key
Unlock the world to kiss your feet
But you better watch out 'cause you've got a smart mouth
You're sharp of mind and slick in wit
I'd pay a good price just to see you slip
Trip along your own tongue and get found out

You see your smile as the key
Unlock the world to kiss your feet
But you better watch out 'cause you've got a smart mouth
You're sharp of mind and slick in wit
I'd pay a good price just to see you slip
Trip along your own tongue and get found out

You see your smile as the key
Unlock the world to kiss your feet
But you better watch out 'cause you've got a smart mouth

Oxygen

Hold my breath
For another day
When it gets too much
Take my time
Steal the years away
Tears will turn to rust

In the end
If I let go
It comes back again
Look out below
It's a sharp descent
I try to hold on
Then it gets too much
Down here again
Down here again

Skin like steel fights against what's real
Tears will turn to rust
No more words they just make things worse
When it gets too much

In the end
If I let go
It comes back again
Look out below
It's a sharp descent
I try to hold on
Then it gets too much
Down here again
Down here again

Hold my hand
I'll lead you astray
Near but fear to touch
On the edge
Will you meet me there?
When it gets too much

In the end
If I let go
It comes back again
Look out below
It's a sharp descent
I try to hold on
Then it gets too much
Down here again
Down here again

Free
We break
We
Dis integrate
When it gets too much
Catch my breath through the shining air
Near but fear to touch

In the end
If I let go
It comes back again
Look out below
It's a sharp descent
I try to hold on
Then it gets too much
Down here again
Down here again

Flown

Did we win?
Did we lose?
Have we grown?
Never knew the undertow so near
How am I standing here?
How am I standing here?

We are pushed
We are pulled
We are thrown
Wandering where the river flows from here
Where will we go from here?
Where will we go from here?

The dice are rolled
The sky unfolds
Turn to what the future holds
Brace yourself and hurl into tomorrow
Headlong into uncertainty
Hearts for sale
Our bodies free
Thirsting minds devouring memories

Shall we dance?
You are lost
I'm alone
Face the sun, we're on our own my dear
Where shall we go from here?
Where shall we go from here?

Are you here?
Are you caged?
Have you flown?
A leap of faith before we're blown sky-clear
Why are we standing here?
Why are we standing here?

The dice are rolled
The sky unfolds
Turn to what the future holds
Brace yourself and hurl into tomorrow
Headlong into uncertainty
Hearts for sale
Our bodies free
Thirsting minds devouring memories

Devouring memories....

Are you here, are you caged, have you flown?
Are you here, are you caged, have you flown?

The dice are rolled
The sky unfolds
Turn to what the future holds
Brace yourself and hurl into tomorrow
Headlong into uncertainty
Hearts for sale
Our bodies free
Thirsting minds devouring memories
Have you flown?

Dead To Me

Surprise
There's a look behind your eyes
That I can't recognise
Chemicals that fizz & start to synthesize
Forked tongues flicker
Then deliver
Twice the lies
Leave me traumatised - You're dead to me

Too pure to see
You're dead to me
Too pure to see
You're up to

No good
Still you claim your name's little Miss-understood
Yet we still smile the same
Because we think we should
You didn't seek to ask because you knew I would
I turn and run for blood - you're dead to me

Too pure to see
You're dead to me
Too pure to see
You're dead to me

You're my noose
One more loop
One more look
Who are you now?
New number one
What are you now?
Just one more loop
You are my new dread
New dread
You're dead to me

Too pure to see
You're dead to me
Too pure to see
You're dead to me
Too pure to see
You're dead to me
Too pure to see
You're dead - dead to me

Ashes

In the ashes of desire
And all I want to do is leave
We take our chance and play with fire
And hope we don't get burnt too deeply

I know this to be true
I need this to be true
I never mean to do the things I do
You must know that it's true
You must know that it's true
But it doesn't make it easier on you

I'm sorry too

I put the ashes in a box
To give to you as you are leaving
I tied it with Forget-Me-Nots
But I doubt that you could ever grieve me

I know this to be true
I need this to be true
I never mean to do the things I do
You must know that it's true
You must know that it's true
But it doesn't make it easier on you

I'm sorry too

Lunatic

Stones cry to me
And sunshine screws me up
But I'd rather up to down here
We're chained upon the ground, dear

I'm not free
But I can see the stars
But
Revolving on their own
Can't see you suffer
Rather like the light that leads to sunburn
I'll side with the moon
Laughing with the lunatics on earth
[and you can stick your sanity to her]

I might be clothed in sin
But I'm more than the sum of the scars upon my skin

Seas cry to me
[that I might be clothed in sin]
And sunshine screws me up
But I'd rather up to down here
We're chained upon the ground, dear

I'm not free
But I can see the stars
But
Revolving on their own
Can't see you suffer
Rather like the light that leads to sunburn
I'll side with the moon
Laughing with the lunatics on earth
[and you can stick your sanity to her]

I might be clothed in sin
But I'm more than the sum of the scars upon my skin
I am more than the hurt of the words within my head
I am more than the size of the colours in my mind
I am more than the screams of the shadows in my dreams
I am more than the sum of the scars upon my skin

Or the hurt within my head
Or the colours in my mind
Or the screams within my dreams
Or the scars upon my skin

You're more than the lies that you hide inside yourself
we are more than the truths used as weapons when we tell
& we are more than the tone of the language on our lips
& we are more than the who with which we choose to share our hips
& we are more than the nights with the lovers we have lost
& we are more than the years full of memories best forgot
& we are more than the hate when they tell us what to think
& we are more than the brand of the poisons that we drink
& we are more than the shade of the clothing that we wear.

We are more than the act of pretending we don't care
& we are more than the trust lost from promises we break
& we are more than the guilt over mistakes we all make
& we are more than the ways in which we choose to close our hearts

We are more than the sum of our many splintered parts
...and we amor.
