It gives me strength to have somebody to fight for; I can never fight for myself, but, for others, I can kill.

I only sleep with people I love, which is why I have insomnia.

I still own my heart, which I know because it hurts so much.

Perfume was first created to mask the stench of foul and offensive odors...
Spices and and bold flavorings were created to mask the taste of putrid and rotting meat...
What then was music created for?
Was it to drown out the voices of others, or the voices within ourselves?
I think I know.

And falling's just another way to fly.

I'm not stupid. I know exactly what's going on, and I'm not fighting it. If I have to go through this, I will glean from it any small benefit I can receive. I will not fight this. Bring it on. Bring on the cure. Bring on the fucking happy. I'm committed.

Awareness is the enemy of sanity, for once you hear the screaming, it never stops.

Here you sit in your high-backed chair
Wonder how the view is from there
I wouldn’t know ’cause I like to sit
Upon the floor, yeah upon the floor
If you like we could play a game
Let’s pretend that we are the same
But you will have to look much closer
Than you do, closer than you do
And I’m far too tired to stay here anymore
And I don’t care what you think anyway
‘Cause I think you were wrong about me
Yeah what if you were, what if you were
And what if I’m a snowstorm burning
What if I’m a world unturning
What if I’m an ocean, far too shallow, much too deep
What if I’m the kindest demon
Something you may not believe in
What if I’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep

I know you’ve got it figured out
Tell me what I am all about
And I just might learn a thing or two
Hundred about you, maybe about you
I’m the end of your telescope
I don’t change just to suit your vision

Thank god I’m pretty
The occasional free drink I never asked for
The occasional admission to a seedy little bar
Invitation to a stranger’s car
I’m blessed
With the ability to render grown men tongue-tied
Which only means that when it’s dark outside
I have to run and hide
Can’t look behind me
Thank god I’m pretty

Thank god I’m pretty
Every skill I ever have will be in question
Every ill that I must suffer
Clearly brought on by myself
Though the cops would come for someone else
I’m blessed
I’m truly privileged to look this good without clothes on
Which only means that when I sing you’re jerking off
And when I’m gone you won’t remember
Thank god I’m pretty

Thank you god
Oh lord
Thank you god

And when a gaggle of faces appears around me
It’s lucky I hate to be taken seriously
I think my ego would fall right through the cracks in the floor

I’ll tell the truth: all of my songs
Are pretty much the fucking same
I’m not a faerie but I need
More than this life so I became
This creature representing more to you
Than just another girl
And if I had a chance to change my mind
I wouldn’t for the world
Twenty years
Sinking slowly
Can I trust you
But I don’t want to

I will swallow
If it will help my sea level go down
But I’ll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow
If it will help my sea level go down
I’ll take a deep deep breath
But I’ll come back to haunt you if I drown

I don’t want to be a legend
Oh well that’s a god damned lie – I do
To say I do this for the people
I admit is hardly true
You tell me everything’s all right
As though it’s something you’ve been through
You think this torment is romantic
Well it’s not except to you
Twenty years
Sinking slowly

She’s locked up with a spinning wheel
She can’t recall what it was like to feel
She says “This room’s gonna be my grave
And there’s no one who can save me”
She sits down to her colored thread
She knows lovers waking up in their beds
She says “How long can I live this way
Is there someone I can pay to let me go
‘Cause I’m half sick of shadows
I want to see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the sun goes down
So why can’t I

Chorus:
And it’s raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it’s cold
I’ve been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it’s here
And it’s here for I’ve been told
That I’ll die before I’m old
And the wind I know it’s cold”

She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a handsome horse and rider pass
She says “That man’s gonna be my death
‘Cause he’s all I ever wanted in my life

I’ll take my hope where I can find it
Seems I find it here in you
Hang your curtain get behind it
I won’t even ask for proof
Go ahead and read my fortune
Cast your dice, divine my fate
I just want to know I have one
Tell me that it’s not too late for

Chorus:
A little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can just erase
‘Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
I can do without a book I’ll never read
Second hand faith is all I need

I will pay you for your trouble
I will pay you for your time
Steal my wallet charge me double
All I’ve come for is a sign
Is there someone who can help me
Up above the clouds I see
Sitting in a Chinese restaurant
Someone comes to offer me

Chorus

‘Cause this feeling of forgiveness means much more to me
Than that paper on the wall that cost you all of ten bucks
If an ancient word, a heathen spell can salvage me

How do I save you from a fate so sweet
As being torn to pieces by a loving hand
How do I save you from a voice so soft
As that which acquiesces to your each demand
How do I look upon the eyes I love
And send them down this path, I know it isn’t right
How do I make you realize my love
That there is more to fear than strangers in the night

Chorus:
How do I save you
How do I set you free
Behind the curtain waits a darker world
If I can’t make you leave
How can I save you from me

I think you’ve had enough experience
To differentiate between a heart of gold
And what you cradle in your gentle arms
Can you not recognize a soul already sold
How do I save you from the things I’ve been
I can’t deny the past, it’s written on my face
How do I save you from the mess you’re in
When I can’t make you leave this torturous embrace

Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
I will marry at thy will sire
At thy will

A thousand years gone by
Too late to wonder why
I’m here alone
If in my darkest hour
She rose that fell a flower
I should have known
Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you can capture me

Chorus:
Tell me no more stories
And I’ll tell you no lies
No one wants to hurt me
But everybody tries
And if you think that I’ve been waiting
For my planets to align
It’s time you go on
Get your things, get up, get out
I’m doing fine, yeah yeah

Someday these walls will speak
The floors beneath you creak
To call my name
Here in my web of dreams
My whispers turn to screams
And place the blame
Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you discover me

Chorus

For this freedom

Like a dream I had
In subconscious deep
Here you come again
Only in my sleep
And I remember you
I remember you
Like a memory
of a time gone by
Many things I’ve seen
Still I can’t deny
That I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

Chorus:
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you whisper in my ear the things
That only you could understand
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you touch me softly in the way
That only you can do
I remember you
I remember you

Every other touch
Runs as cold as ice
If I get too close
I may pay the price
But I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

Chorus

I would recognize your shadow in a crowded room
Change your name a million times
It wouldn’t change my mind
Or what I hope to find
In your heart underneath

In a courtyard
Used to sing as loud as she could
Locked away here
She’s been quiet, lovely and good
But no one listens now
She lost her voice
She had no choice

Chorus:
If you sing loud and clear
Someone passing by will surely hear you
No you can’t be afraid
If you ever want somebody near you
If you sing loud and clear
Someone passing by will surely hear you
No you can’t be afraid

Tore the curtain
Put her hand outside of the frame
Let her hair down
Sat all day and nobody came
But when the sun went down
The stars came out
She heard them shout

Chorus

But when the sun went down
The stars came out
She heard them shout

I’m your Opheliac
I’ve been so disillusioned
I know you’d take me back
But still I feign confusion
I couldn’t be your friend
My world was too unstable
You might have seen the end

But you were never able
To keep me breathing
As the water rises up again
Before I slip away

You know the games I play
And the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell
When you’ve gone through hell
And I say I can’t stay
You know how hard it can be
To keep believing in me
When everything and everyone
Becomes my enemy and when
There’s nothing more you can do
I’m gonna blame it on you
It’s not the way I want to be
I only hope that in the end you will see
It’s the Opheliac in me

I’m your Opheliac
My stockings prove my virtues
I’m open to attack
But I don’t want to hurt you
Whether I swim or sink

It’s a sunny day in heaven
And no one is around
To open the gates
And I’m waiting for you
My fairweather friend
Absent in the end
Absent in the end
The one thing I can count on
Is nothing much at all
The one thing that I’m sure about
Is that you won’t be anywhere around me when I fall
I’d like to think I wouldn’t die for you, but you know I would
‘Cause that’s the fool I am
And that’s the rule you bend
Absent in the end
My fairweather friend

Miss Lucy had some leeches
Her leeches liked to suck
And when they drank up all her blood
She didn’t give a
Funny when the doctors
Had locked her in her cell
Miss Lucy screamed all night that they
Should go to bloody
Hello to the surgeon
With scalpel old and blunt
He’ll tie you to the table
Then he’ll mutilate your
Come it’s nearly teatime
The lunatics arrive
The keepers bleed them all until
There’s no one left a
Lively little rodents
Are eaten up by cats
We’re subject to experiments
Like laboratory
Rats I’ve dropped a teacup
How easily they break
I’m on my hands and knees until
I pay for my mis-
Take off all your clothing
We’ve only just begun
We have no anesthesia

One thing we should tell you
Before you try again

It’s not the time
It’s not the place
I’m just another pretty face
So don’t come any closer
You’re not the first
You’re not the last
How many more?
Don’t even ask
You’re one more dead composer

Do I need you?
Yes and no
Do I want you?
Maybe so
You’re getting warm
You’re getting warm
You’re getting warmer oh
Did you plan this all along
Did you care if it was wrong
Who’s getting warmer now
That I’m gone

Misery loves company
And company loves more
More loves everybody else
But hell is others

I’m not for you
You’re not for me
I’ll kill you first
You wait and see
You devil undercover
You’re not a prince
You’re not a friend
You’re just a child
And in the end
You’re one more selfish lover

Do I need you?
Yes and no
Do I want you?

Marry me, he said, through his rotten teeth, bad breath, and then
Marry me instead of that strapping young goatherd, but when
I was in his bed, and my father had sold me
I knew I hadn’t any choice, hushed my voice, did what any girl would do and
When I’m beheaded at least I was wedded
And when I am buried at least I was married
I’ll hide my behavior with wine as my savior

But, oh, what beautiful things I’ll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I’m lucky to share his bed
Especially since I’ll soon be dead

Marry me, he said, god, he’s ugly, but fortune is ours
Running in the gardens enjoying men, women, and flowers
Then I break a glass and I slit my own innermost thigh
So that I can pretend that I’m menstru…well, unavailable
My life is arranged but this union’s deranged
So I’ll fuck who I choose for I’ve nothing to lose
And when master’s displeased I’ll be down on my knees again

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they’ve done to you?
Wouldn’t they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you’ll know

The beginning and the end
Much closer than they seem
Death is but a dream, I know
Dolls were meant to throw away
All broken and bent from petty play
My friend in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they’ve done to you?
Wouldn’t they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you’ll know

My melancholy state
Folly, fear and hate, I know
Even time will never tell

I want to hold you to the sun
I want to be your faithful one
I want to show you all the beauty
You don’t even know you hold
I’m hurting you for your own good
I’d die for you – you know I would
I’d give up all my wealth
To buy you back the soul you never sold
I want to mix our blood
And put it in the ground
So you can never leave
I want to earn your trust
Your faith your heart
You’ll never be deceived

Liar Liar Liar Liar

I want to heal you pretty sweet
I’ll throw rose petals at your feet
I’ll spend eternity
Comparing all my poetry to yours
I want to see love through your eyes
You’ll never have to compromise
I’ll give up all my fame
To fight your demons and your bloody wars
I want to mix our blood
And put it in the ground
So you can never leave
I want to earn your trust
Your faith your heart
You’ll never be deceived

Turning tricks with absent guile
Reeling in your crooked smile
Why did I turn to you?
I only wanted a hand to pour my heart into
And now I’ll bump my grind through another night
Lose my mind in another fight
Why did I turn to you?
I only gave you a chance to prove the rumors true
And now I’m paying with my
Paying with my life
I’m paying with my life

So let the record show
That you murdered me
In your coldest blood
With your own two hands
Don’t think no one understands
It happens every day

Working life like a burlesque show
Get them off and they’ll let you go
Why did I turn to you?
I only turned out to be just one more girl you slew
And now I’ll bump my grind through another
Lose my mind in another
Why, why, why, why?

This is your mission
Should you choose to accept it
Well, I hope that you do
This is your story
Should you choose to remember
Well, I hope that it’s true

I’ve finally a reason
To let it die, let it die
You’ve given me a reason
To let it die

Like all the words irrelevant and clean
Like all the girls before me, have you seen
Somebody walking back from Hell on their own
Well, I hope that you do
Why are we talking
As if you didn’t know
Well, they know about you

I’ve finally a reason

You’ve given me a reason

You’re in my stars you know
Don’t need no crystal ball to tell me so
Whispering in the air
Hoping that my words find you somewhere
Even when I close my eyes
I’ll never recreate the time that flies
The consequence is hanging there
The sky will fall but I don’t care

Chorus:
Meet me beneath my balcony and say
No one but you could ever fill my night
Be the sunlight in my every day
Underneath my balcony I’ll say
No one but you could ever fill my night
Be the sunlight in my every day

Your love is haunting me
And all I want is more to set me free
Whispering in the air
Hoping that my words find you somewhere
Do you hear me call your name
I know we will never be the same
The consequence is hanging there
The sky will fall but I don’t care

In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake

Take those steps down
Come to the waterside
Drown and hide
How many bodies are buried beneath those rocks
I told you there was one
And now you know whose it is
Mine mine mine

In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken

My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than the lake

I want my innocence back
And if you can’t give it to me
I will cut you down
And I will run you through
With the dagger you sharpened
On my body and soul
Before you slit me in two
And then devoured me whole

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back
And if you can’t pacify me
I will break your bones
You think I’m bluffing, just try me
I will never forget
The words you used to ensnare me
Till my dying day
You’ll suffer for this, I swear (I swear)

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back

And I demand
You put my heart back in my hand
And wipe it clean
From the mess you made of me
And I require
You make me free from this desire
And when you leave, I’d better be the innocent
I used to be

I want my innocence back

I know
The sickening thoughts that slither around your head
I know
The gluttonous guilt that buried me in your bed
Manipulate me if you can
Go on and fool me like your biggest fan

I know
The arrogant pride that poisons the truth you hear
I know
The bigoted tongue that tears away all your fear
Pontificate you faded star
Go on and show me who you really are

You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
You can fake it on stage
You can crawl from your cage
You can search and destroy
You can kill and depend on it
I know your tainted flesh
I know your filthy soul
I know each trick you played
Whore you laid
Dream you stole
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it all
I know the secrets that you keep
I know where you sleep

I know
The illness behind the image you create

When you are sleeping do you dream of me
How strange, how strange
‘Cause you know what they say
About the visions in your head and what they mean
How strange, how strange
That you should feel that way
I’m not living in an ordinary world
‘Cause I’m not your ordinary good girl
And I don’t believe in playing like I know that game
You’re not heading for an ordinary love
‘Cause I’m not the one that you should think of
And I’m not a prize that you can claim

Chorus:
You know I think it’s strange
Just a little bit deranged
That you think I’m gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you dream
How strange

I’m more than happy in my candlelight

Hollow like my soul

You think that you’ll get by
You will die
You will cry
When you think that you’ll survive

Run and hide

So many times I wonder why
So many times I ask myself
