Track Name: Come Lay In My Bed
Hello sweetheart
The moon must be full
If my wrist is so twisted
Don't go looking for a cure
Don't go looking for a curse
When a blessing needn't be reversed
Soon the earth will be wet
So take your clothes off sweetheart
Come lay in my bed

The tide is killing me
But it never felt so right
I feel my blood going outdoors
Where it knows it belongs
Don't call me troubled
Don't shake your beautiful head
If you care a damn about me
Come lay in my bed
Track Name: Name
Don't talk to me now, forget all about it
I don't wanna hear any more shouting
Sleep well, sleep, sleep well darling
You don't wanna hear any more shouting
I got your tape, I watch it every day
Each time I forget it ends just the same
I pause the last frame in black and white
That little smile you fake makes me want to die
I went to the bus stop the train came
I know a man there who paints pleasure from pain
It's strange that my altar is a TV screen
And god is a tape I've already seen
I don't mind that I'm nothing, I'm too bored to try
I like to rewind you to when you were alive
You wet a cigarette to ignite your lips
And it makes me want to give you a kiss
I reach for mine too, we smoke through time
Eye to eye, together we're fine
But only one of us sees, or that's what they say
But what do they know about us anyway
Don't talk to me now, forget all about it
I don't wanna hear any more shouting
Sleep well, sleep, sleep well darling
You must be so tired from all of the shouting
Track Name: Skin
Let's play with knives
It's an easy way to win
But there aren't enough knives in this house
Let's play with guns
It's an easy way to lose
But there aren't enough guns in this house
You're only good enough
for one thing
he said and poured himself a drink
The past is what you tell
people it is
Now take off your clothes and count back from three
I'll show you my crime
It's a pantomime
He said and then it started to stick
She thought about water the anonymous friend
that washed her face when it was covered in tricks
You little asshole,
you fucking bore
chew on the heartbreaker crushing your jaw
I don't like the lights, I don't feel the reds
Just give me a packet of your famous cigarettes
Your skin'll get you through
Your skin'll get you through
There's enough of it on me
To cover you
Baby
Contradict her solitude
the wolf can stay with her for good
and we'll injure instruments with spirits to go
Every person worth their soul
has you to answer to
The cure is in the right proof
Keep me awake, if I fall asleep
I don't know where I'll go
Put on a record, mix a bad drink
anything to keep me from him
You skin'll get you through
Your skin'll get you through
There's enough of it on me
To cover you
Baby
Tell me everything about you that you can spare
I'm ashamed to ask and lonely over here
You don't know why the secret
has a tattoo of a lie that says get filthy or learn to die
You look down on me cos I need some TV
to distract me from the intimate floor
You say people are shit, they'll nod and they'll sit
but they'll never pull it out of you
I don't want to talk about the shadow of time
The past is what you tell your mother it is
I'm gonna learn the alphabet from A to Z
so I can misspell your name during class in a note
From me to you, I learnt what to do
Your skin'll get you through
Your skin'll get you through
There's enough of it on me to cover you
Baby
Track Name: Till Death Do Us Party Preview
Til death do us party
Til death do us party
Amen amen amen amen
Til death do us party
Til death do us party
I love you and I always will
Track Name: Heavy Metal
Come come, don't sleep
Come come, kill the sun ghost in me
Say say say that I can come in
Vein like a drumskin
blood like a string
We're so scared of the rust in the sunrise
We're so scared of the rust in the sunrise
Sacrifice, between you and I
the moments we shared meant the world to me
And now you are leaving, I feel the world slipping from under my feet
Who do I write for
Who do I long for
The chorus fans, indi bands, pins and the staples
When you silently secretly bleed
I feel
heavy metal

My blood is in these stones so much that
when I look in the mirror I see a brick wall
These seconds are slow
The cigarettes are awful
People are strange
Their glasses are hopeful
I am free like the men on TV
Can't you see everything means nothing to
Sacrifice, between you and I the moments we shared
meant the world to me
And now you are leaving, I feel the world slipping
from under my feet
Who do I write for
Who do I long for
The chorus fans, indi bands, pins and the staples
When you silently, secretly bleed
I feel heavy metal

Sing this cold song and we will breathe again
Track Name: Same's The Game
I try so hard to be the sum of my parts
Children, try to keep it sweet
I don't have a human heart
How bad can Animal be?
How bad can Animal be?
How bad can Animal be?
How bad an animal can be!
Track Name: Devil's Plaything
Love is a flame
A devil's thing
A violent storm
About to be born
Just look in these eyes
See all the lies
All the things you see
You cannot deny

And this flame
That burns inside
If you get too close
Burn you alive
Just look in these eyes
And see if they lie
All these words I speak
You cannot deny

Got a light
Shines on me
Gentle light
It will never be
See the flame
In my hand
If you're playing with fire
You're playing in Hell

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you wanna touch flames
Come unto me

Got a flame
Burns inside
If you don't wanna burn
Just walk on by
And the pain
You're feeling now
Is nothing compared
To the pleasures I hide

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you wanna touch flames
Come unto me

Got a flame
In my hand
If you don't want a fire
Step out of my light
Walk on by
Just look away
'Cause if you're on my path
You're better off dead

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you wanna touch flames
Then Come unto me
Track Name: Pure Love
Pure love is freedom
freer than a fact
and we are all the slaves
of exactly that
Pure love's a queen
that will have us all killed
for drinking too much blood
and then not paying the bill
Pure love's a forest god
starting city fires
Running up the hills
with all his bad desires
Blue whiskey and a cigarette
and please please don't forget to get some ice so we can celebrate
Where am I going
I thought you were coming to
There's ice in this box
enough for two

I can't concentrate on chores
and real life makes me bored
I just wanna lie in bed
and be adored
Ignorance is your kiss
Let's go down to the beech
and take photographs of each other's sandy feet
Never give up
be real honest but
remember posers and fakers cry real tears too
Where am I going
I thought you were coming too
There's ice in this box
enough for two
Track Name: London City
She fights like she loves, no mercy
She is my mother she taught me
how to be how to be
high peached, round and perfect, indiscreet
juice dripping down your bottom lip
when you bite me
I'm a sparkling diamond
You can call me Di
but like uncle Tom once told me
some diamonds want to stay coal, let's fly
I'm cursed with a deadly fall
I think I'll stay here swinging
cos I can't handle the world I'm living
And a voice says swing swing
swing swing
And a voice says swing swing
it's your thing thing

The feather that strokes me feels like a rock
I know I'm supposed to be strong but
I lost my heart to London city
and she turned out to be
a man with an axe
and now my soul is fucked
I'm a sparkling diamond
You can call me Di
but like uncle Tom once told me
some diamonds want to stay coal, let's fly
I'm cursed with a deadly fall
I think I'll stay here swinging
cos I can't handle the world I'm living
And a voice says swing swing
swing swing
And a voice says swing swing
it's your thing thing

I have no sympathy left
for the assholes of the world
I got more left for the killers and dealers
They're my people, I feel them
And we're all cursed with a deadly fall
cos we chose and choose and always will choose to stay coal
We're sparkling diamonds
but you won't know until we fall apart
We got things to do tomorrow
we gotta die
We're all just cold travellers with secret eyes of stone
and as we sit together now, one day we'll be gone
I'm a sparkling diamond
You can call me Di
but like uncle Tom once told me
some diamonds want to stay coal, let's fly
I'm cursed with a deadly fall
I think I'll stay here swinging
cos I can't handle the world I'm living
And a voice says swing swing
swing swing
And a voice says swing swing
It's your thing thing
Track Name: Take My Breath Away
Watching every motion
In my foolish lover's game
On this endless ocean
Finally lovers know no shame

Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn around and say

Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Watching I keep waiting
Still anticipating love
Never hesitating
To become the fated ones
Turning and returning

To some secret place to find
Watching in slow motion
As you turn to me and say
My love

Take my breath away

Through the hourglass I saw you
In time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you
And turned to hear you say
If only for today
I am unafraid

Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Watching every motion
In this foolish lover's game
Haunted by the notion
Somewhere there's a love in flames

Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn my way and say

Take my breath away
Take my breath away
