I once was sent an angel that came from the glacial land. In its beauty I marvelled for all my beaus had come from sand. In awe of its radiance, creeping barefoot I watched it walk. In gracious indifference, one thousand words and it didn't talk. Shine brightly, shine brightly. I'm flying, I might be. Its words they floated softly, Air too coarse for their brush And so it continued thusly, My house of cards, My King high flush. Shine brightly, shine brightly. I'm flying, I might be. Brightest beacon in existence, Coax me softly from the distance.

Fashionably hard to sleep Too sad, too bleak They take but don't have much to give They choose, they pick Ancient books too thick So the pictures do the trick All dressed in black, aha Look down to hide your eyes are different colours One step, two steps aha Take another step and i won't say I'm sorry Sympathy's so hard to win When the skin's too thin Their wicked ways so hard to scheme They claw, they grin Before you lose the grip Entropy's the trick And the sound of ticking bombs Invades their heads to push out hope

Stricken with amnesia With blood upon my lips Constricted by this fever Locked in virginal bliss I used to be a hunter The very last of my kin Sate this libidinous hunger I am the seventh sin Hey hey Once I was a carnivore With blood upon my lips You're a fallen matador Now blood runs from your hips I used to be a hunter The very last of my kin Sate this libidinous hunger I am the seventh sin Hey hey Fields are scarlet pools of nothing unrelenting This molten blood lust I am feeling never venting

Lost inside this cave I'll always owe you blood my friend Follow the red trail I'll always owe you blood my friend Pick one of the excuses and I will If I spend a day alone then I'm in need From a lack of a better concept it's a thrill In case it's hard to notice i'm always keen Lost look on my face, well always after you my friend Hungry for more prey, well always after you my friend Let them catch up with our game Let them catch up with our game Driven by despair and mess We're lost between the lines I guess Pick one of the excuses and I will If I spend a day alone then I'm in need From a lack of a better concept it's a thrill In case it's hard to notice i'm always keen All the skylarks outside pity me, Sorry sight

Hey hey hey, Take me out tonight Remember, we won't get younger than we're now The streets are dead for us, The lights turn green with lust Hey hey hey Let's be giants you and I Hey hey hey, I'll let you break my hourglass I promise if you're gentle I won't make a fuss So push away the tide With every grain of sand Hey hey hey Let's find a place to hide

When the dusk turns the window into a mirror I can see the brand of time on my chest I look like I died, then came back to where I needn't be And I'm trapped under the lifeless clouds heavy with strain There's a strange smile about tomorrow Soaked in sullen rain There's a strange smile about tomorrow Soaked in sullen, soaked in sullen... The wings at my sides shrivelled up when I changed my ways The sail, once so high, lost its grace I don't want to die without any scars or noble wounds One last wish to engrave in my tomb There's a strange smile about tomorrow Soaked in sullen rain There;s a strange smile about tomorrow Soaked in sullen, soaked in sullen... In the dim light, when the stars come out I'll climb to the roof to shake them down

When you're scared of heights You got to work it out No one ever grows up in the Peter Pan Clan When you're tired of lights Come alive at night Make everything look pretty With the magic dust Bye and bye we begin to sing Two of us singing two different songs at the same time I left my halo behind Scentless poison sipping out Will make me sleepwalk tonight To the neverland Through the window at night I'll fly away from this town Whispering cold goodnight Beckoned by moonlight

When youth wears you out And persuades to grow old When the friends are gone Safe inside of their homes In the corner of your memory I'll hide away Humming songs that take you back to our golden days Let the autumn sun Sip through skin to the bones Warming up the blood Safe from turning to stone Once we sailed the skies Clothed in veils of clouds In the corner of your memory I'll hide away Humming songs that take you back to our golden days This venom seems to bulge under your skin Let me suck it out

I'll try, I'll try to hide that smile Your loss won't keep me satisfied Aha, this cliff does look too high I know, 'cause I stood where you stand now So jump, jump with your arms spread wide The view will make you feel alive Aha, it's too late to change your mind Your loss won't keep me satisfied The bells will ring The choir will sing Your martyr ring Won with a wink It's time, it's time to count your crimes Don't leave until you pay your fines Aha, what a way to turn to dust Your loss won't keep me satisfied The bells will ring The choir will sing Your martyr ring Won with a wink

I'll sail away on coastal tides Where the moon floats on the sea I taught myself to travel light And how lonely it can be And I got lost a hundred times Or washed up on a beach All shores are finally out of sight I'll swim till I grow weak Could I fall off the edge of the sea Could I fall off the edge of the sea I'll sail under the dying sun It'll burn away the fear And so I'll carry on my plight Until the waves taste sweet Could I fall off the edge of the sea Could I fall off the edge of the sea
