Vernal Pools 06:00
I know Our frozen age Returns to gold As I row Internal waves Destroy the coast Swift into dark Eyes like keyholes Partially nude Past lives ripple Bathed in blue light Cold as a mirror Drag your shadow through a pack of wolves Scratch your name into the horsehair plaster walls and burn them down Spill opaque clouds in concrete swamps And lay the face to waste Feed it to the final flame In vernal pools When the soft light turns to rust Go test the water you'll find me there Crushed to dust the smoke and the mirrors will keep me there the ghosts and the fevers will guide my hands Drag your shadow through a pack of wolves Scratch your name into the horsehair plaster walls and burn them down Spill opaque clouds in concrete swamps And lay the face to waste Feed it to the final flame Phantom pains control the hands that slowly choke me I can feel hours in their moans Black pools In spring It comes It goes Change your face little changeling Your skin it cracks and crows Black clouds In spring It rains It pours Sing your song little starling This nest is not your home Now You know There's hidden strength Contained in those pools Now You know You can't escape without The right tools Ice water Fill the dry depression seep into the soil Drink this viscous liquid Soak it up bring it to a boil I am the only one Who'll keep you from falling apart Spellbound Shallow in the basin vacant Knee-deep in the breeding grounds

Long legs crawl through cold basement walls Trace the lines That shape your house Spin tanged yarns through hot attics in dark We fell for dirty tricks girl Because we're greedy and starved Fragile body shake webs and thieve My my my my my antique venom Vibrate through time and space Tame us wild beasts with your psychic mind control don't ever let me go Love's silent wraith Is descending my staircase in robes So slow comfort me, wrap me in silk Pain pill My savior my angel of filth My Achilles heel Reclaim your arrow confirm the kill My my my my my antique venom Love's silent wraith Is descending my staircase in robes So slow comfort me, wrap me in silk Pain pill My savior my angel of filth My Achilles heel Reclaim your arrow confirm the kill When long legs crawl Kingdoms fall Long legs crawl

At Daggers 07:08
Ribbon come undone Vorpal blade Cut and run Hard feelings keep us one Fan the flames So we don't grow cold Cats eyes only need one sixth the light You can't fade to black Soft magnet draw me like a gun Repeat yourself Haunt the woods Where I bang my head -Got an axe to grind Half poison Half iron lung The great divide In a dark star constellation in the color rings On the gray grid I can see your face In the phosphenes After birth You're cold, alone and wild When it hurts You'll bleed it out in style Nurse the grudge Keep the fire alive When you bury the hatchet Part of you dies Evil looks Through Jaundiced eyes At daggers You and I Twist the knife Bad blood Simmers inside Give me a glimmer of the devil That commands your might Nurse the grudge Keep the fire alive When you bury the hatchet Part of you dies Spill the ink And blur the lines Memories spoiling for a fight Every link In this rusty chain is mine Bind my body And grip my mind -Let the knife do the cutting At daggers At daggers Don't cut me loose I need you more -now We can break -apart -and shatter We crack and crumble down At daggers At daggers Don't cut me loose I need you more -now We can tear -apart -and tatter Fall asleep and run aground When we bleed It pools together In this shipwreck we are found Bring the battle Everyday A duel at dawn Fuel the feud Cross swords with me Drag it on and on and on Without my shield My defense is so low Every hit I feel Gets me closer to you

Diving Bell 07:50
Rapture of the deep Drape your veil Beyond the twilight zone in the midnight realm I dwell Below the surface waves There's a danger The pressure of the depth keeps me anchored On the ocean floor I'm a stranger A foreign body sunk In an impact crater in the turbid water I'm a failure Suffer my design My human nature And the earth was without form and void Darkness on the face of the deep Bioluminescent pilots Leave light trails Crystal canyons echo Pierce my copper helm Soft Slumber lords A frozen shade that gently warms Black your lily-white hands Hold me in your arms And the earth was without form and void Darkness on the face of the deep Encumbered Pinned under the fathoms of grey noise Mother Shake me from this waking sleep Heavy velvet curtain Ring down on me Hush my hollow bones And Gild these broken wings Paper mâché Dissolved in my cell My lacrimosa My diving bell Let me burn Cry for the moon In darkened rooms Burn with a low blue flame Loyal servant of the coven Grieving in their wake There is no escape I'm forever chained To an altered state I lay slain Rare thunder With opal eyes Egyptian rain Flood my mind Damascus blade Sever ties leave me cut and dry Vermillion The drone congregations grow Whispers bloom In the gloaming I Fell Fevered Down to you My healer My crimson queen Lend me perfect vision Show me everything Moai eyes glow Fossil feathers trapped in amber Lost in a dream Arcane bats crowd my belfry We're alone now Slowly drifting in the magma Savage island screams My crimes pardoned by her grace Drink from desert succulents No space between Shed your diamond skin for me Spirits rise into the ether Tomb effigies Mark the hallowed cold seep We leave Born I am born Returned to form I am born Free from the swarm I am born
