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...

What is your substance, whereof are you made,
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?
Since every one, hath every one, one shade,
And you but one, can every shadow lend.

See beyond the moment
Think beyond the day
Hear the word
My voice will not be cast away
Fatalistic fortune
Ever near the end
Love goes on
But time does not return again

Chorus:
Across the sky
I will come for you
If you ask me to
Demystify
Your uncommon dreams
Stranger things have come true

Fear no more the midnight
Fear no more the sea
Close your eyes, regret nothing
You’re safe with me
Look into the shadows
Step into the mist
Search your land...

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...

"There's a spotlight of a holy kind
Think it comes from somewhere
Up in the sky or from some far off lovely place
But this light never ever ever shone on me
At least as far as I could see
So I sat in the dark and I watched you
Now I just cry to myself
When there's no one around
And I teach myself to walk backwards
Out of any given situation
Yes I can be graceful and try
Not to step on my train and
You don't have to say goodbye
But I'll be right here if you want to..."


"Oh darling I waited and waited to feel your footsteps
And to hear your breath
But maybe I just wanted someone to wait for..."
~~ Ever

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

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
I have given all I had
For this darkness
I gave my light
For this wisdom
I have lost my innocence
Take my petals
And cover me with the night

Chorus
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...

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...

If You Feel Better

If you feel better
Telling me I'm cruel
Saying I'm unfeeling
I don't mind
If it's necessary
If it helps you out
Crying that I'm heartless
It's alright
Well I'm sorry
To cause you so much pain
But it occurs to me
You're acting like a ten year old
So glad you're still in touch
With your inner child
All the same what can you really hope
To gain from complaining
I could apologize for all the things
I've never done
But how much fun would that be
So no I won't do that
But if you feel better
Telling me I'm cruel
Saying I'm unfeeling
I don't mind
If it's necessary
If it helps you out
Crying that I'm heartless...

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...

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

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

Be silent, be still
Don’t make me chase you
I’ll warn you, I will
Just to embrace you
I’ll get my fill
So be silent, be still

Be hopeful, be brave
I only want you more
When you misbehave
I know I’ve said that before
It’s your touch I crave
So be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

Be careful, my dear
If you’re not nice
I’ll give you reason to fear
But I’ll think twice
Don’t pretend you don’t hear
Just be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

Now listen to me
I’d rather tie you up
Than let you go free
You must be kind, my dear
I think you’ll agree
These are the words you’ve sung to me
So there’s no hope you see
For still inside I will never be
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

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

Chorus

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...
