Wrecker 03:52
Come a little bit closer I’ve got something to show you What I am what I got cannot be explained Over and over throw up what they sold you I’ve got something for your pleasure something for your pain Follow the light to the shore Follow the light to my door Desire protection love and affection Rejection will forever be a memory Control care faithful fair You see that house over there I built for you and me Follow the light to the shore Follow the light to my door Wrecker I can see you there just a little further Tell me what they said show me where the hurt you Where they stuck it in through your jaw into your skin Everything that aches I can reverse A copper kiss a crimson curse You can you must My baby bird I dug a hole for us Follow the light to the shore Follow the light to my door Wrecker I’ve been waiting so long for you to come

Berlin Sky 05:35
I’m a creature of habit and my habit is this Carving out my lonely lovely abyss Your head your hands your heart Show them to me sweetheart And I’ll use them when the world ends again The trees all look like animals grieving To the sound of the earth sleeping and the sky breathing Your bones your limbs your skin Bring them to me pumpkin And I’ll use them when I catch fire again I’m gonna love you as the city turns to dust I’ll be your man when you finally had enough Give me just a little while and I will ease your worry Give me just a little time with your little body I wanna touch your face I wanna taste your sour You smell like something between gasoline and a sunflower Your legs your lips your liver Give them to me little sister And I’ll use them when you die again Slowly now it’s coming on Steady now and it won’t take long My girl my girl my girl so sweet I am decomposing here at your feet I am not enough but I can try I wanna take you here under Berlin sky Come on wrap me up put me in your hair Spit me out I don’t care I’m gonna love you as the city turns to dust I’ll be your man when you finally had enough I’m gonna love you mama let me be your rider I wanna crawl I wanna cry I wanna hide inside you I’m gonna love you as the river turns to oil And the dead claw their way back out of the soil Give me just a little while and I will ease your worry Give me just a little time Give me just a little time Give me just a little time with your little body

Rag Doll 03:36
When did I forget how to swim When did I begin to dream of oceans Seeping through these seams I’m heavy A rag doll ready To pull apart from years of use An upturned dress a missing shoe Unsteady bent and barely Able to see Whose eyes are these Pissholes in the snow it seems Until they reach the blackened streams Is this relief I’m filling up I’m spilling out A hand to throat a song to mouth I’m spinning choking singing A little girl runs towards the sea Beauty is a careless thief Now dimming A memory slipping Unable to see Whose eyes are these Pissholes in the snow it seems Until they reach the blackened streams Is this relief

Ripple in the red tide as the rapture rolls in I can feel it in my belly and the scales on my skin Absolution retribution crucified and frail I paint myself with animal blood and scream baby’s not for sale I got a mind like an earthquake a vision like a hearse I spend my days cultivating blood from the earth Idolizing ostracizing trying not to make a mess I spend my nights dreaming of a woman in a dead girl dress Tell me what you want to do I’ll do anything you want me to Do you feel like a bug Do you feel like a fraud Do you feel like the dog shit on the boot heel of the Lord I am a cannibal baby I want to eat your beautiful brain Rip out your raven hair and wear it like a mane Tell me what you want to do I’ll do anything you want me to Hang me from my worries Hang me from my woes Won’t you hang me from the ring Stuck through the center of your nose Everything’s a struggle and everyone is trouble And everything is wrong and everyone’s upset A bad decision a sad apparition And a vision of a woman in a dead girl dress Tell me what you want to do I’ll do anything you want me to Well out there is my mother and she’s drifting out to sea And I wonder what my father really truly thinks of me And I think about my sister and I hope that she is free Sometimes I think of suicide and becoming a tree

Here I stand just another man with a self-destructive side See me as I split apart in front of your very eyes Notice as I try to shift into another shape Watch now as I try and try but fail to escape Stranger can you feel it How much I need you now I swear to God my heart’s still beating somewhere underground Somewhere in the ether Somewhere in the void There must be some kind of beauty yet to be destroyed Give it to me I just want to see how far it can bend Give it to me give it to me I just want to feel it again The writer gives what the writer takes as he suffocates the truth Every wound I borrow and every word I swallow I send one back for you And I burn all my money And I burn all my time And I burn all your crosses darling And I cross all your lines You got a pretty face I want it I want it You got such good ideas I need it I need it Give it to me I just want to see how far it can bend Give it to me give it to me I just want to feel it again Feel it now Salivation sight sound Thief comes from underneath Sorrow the sick the heat Come on and give it to me I just want to see how far it can bend Give it to me I just want to see how much it can take Give it to me I just want to see what it takes to break Give it to me I just want to see where it begins and where it ends Give it to me give it to me I just want to feel it again

Alina 03:42
Alina I wonder about the colour of the eyes that see you I wonder about the shape of the hands that feel you I wonder about the depth of the mind that knows how to read you You are soft like the clouds You are sharp like the now that cuts through my night I am drenched in light Alina I spill all my words when I’m around you I wonder about the voice of the woman who soothes you I wonder about the things she might say to move you You are pale like the clouds You are dark as the night that holds all my now celestial shroud that floats through the house Alina What would you do if I whispered to you That I need you

Come closer to me brother Show me where it hurts Cause you can’t breathe under water And I can’t see in the dirt You are a swelling shade of hellfire I am a panic for my doubt Let’s sew ourselves together And see how this works out There’s no time to collapse You take the marrow and I’ll take the scraps Rip it up and slip right in You know you look so good in your alligator skin Hold me closer now big sister It’s cold and it’s getting colder Sing me some of your gentle grace And I’ll tattoo it on my shoulder We are the architects of nothing We are the ones who will create Behind every single thing we love Looms a shadow of our hate There’s no time to collapse You take the marrow and I’ll take the scraps Rip it up and slip right in You know you look so good in your alligator skin Breathe in the fire Believe in the bad Taste something sour And drink something sad Swallow your heroes And throw up the rest Climb into my mouth creature And build a nest Rip it up and slip right in You look so good in your alligator skin

Vapour Voice 04:41
I dug a ditch around my body’s core Nothing less and nothing more I wear your shadow like a veil of flies Behind your vapour voice Where I hide I ripped the stitches out of all my sore Nothing less and nothing more I wear my weakness like a silver shroud Tell me darling do you see me now Destroyer detacher degrader decider The dream and the damage I left inside her Mother malice magma machine Move out of time and melt into me Cold is the killer calm is the hand Quiet is the blade careful is the plan And the dogs are ready now God is dead There is a bidding war online For her golden severed head And I’m coming to you now I’m coming to your door And I want nothing less Give me nothing more Destroyer detacher degrader decider The dream and the damage I left inside her Mother malice magma machine Move out of time and melt into me Little by little and drop for drop Never knew how or when to stop I’m an arrow of nothing but I’ve got something to say I was chasing a ghost while fading away But I have not died oh no not today Destroyer detacher degrader decider The dream and the damage I left inside her Mother malice magma machine Move out of time and melt into me

Venom Song 05:45
Slowly sliding through the dripping dawn Slipping in the eye of the aging storm The ripping of the world it feels so rough Sometimes the good’s just not good enough Where are you going in your blue dress and leather jacket All of my today darling you can have it I watch you forever down the city streets Today that’s just good enough for me Are you there I need you now It feels so sick to be alive right now We tried so hard to rectify the hurt What if we got it wrong What if it doesn’t work What are you doing with all that lovely air It’s violet it’s venom it’s disrepair Motionless between freedom and fear Take me with you when you disappear Are you there I need you now It feels so sick to be alive right now We tried so hard to rectify the hurt What if we got it wrong What if it doesn’t work
