Growing to be just like the other one So concerned with the patterns of the pretty one Move like Dorothy my dear Shoes of red and a heart of a fear Moved in circles till you were in front of me Trapped in you is just where I wanna be Tell me, does it stay the same Touching parts, playing games Beast stay hungry Soul stay angry Wild, wild angels Take me away Out of the dust and into the clay Trapped inside your thoughts of the pretty one Racing backwards, trying to find a little sun But the days, they pass so slow And the moon so heavy when you’re on your own I looked inside the life of a tired man Trying to find his ride to the other side But he gave up hope and he missed his chance Now it breaks his heart to see Dorothy Dance Beast stay hungry Soul stay angry Wild, wild angels Take me away Out of the dust and into the clay

I awoke in a shameful way On a Summer’s day That had betrayed the rain I could feel you, breathe you Holding me tight Stealing my light I don’t love you but I’m lonely You go to church but you’re not holy Oh the habits of men I don’t need you but I know you And it is all the same No fire, no flame We move on in a loveless haze All the words you say All this pointless praise Makes me crave your validation, Our fear of isolation Is closing us in I don’t love you but I’m lonely You go to church but you’re not holy Oh the habits of men I don’t need you but I know you And it is all the same No fire, no flame We stroke the fear and hope for rest We wish the wild away But it won’t go She‘s found her home In a city full of birdless skies We miss the sound We full it with our cries We dream of being alive I don’t love you but I’m lonely You go to church but you’re not holy Oh the habits of men I don’t need you but I know you And it is all the same No fire, no flame In this game, the circle remains And so we play Though we’d really like to get it away It won’t be today We’re not that brave

Amy’s here tonight I’m exhausted She’s in red and white A phoenix bound for flight Always hoped I’d be Less in need of flattery and lights a body drenched in night I’d understand Even worse I wouldn’t even fight I’d simply step aside How my insides crawl Could it be I’m the skin that warms your needs But the stranger in your dreams. I’m lost, I’m tired Amy, he’s yours I’m trying But I I fell today Fed the fear that covers her in grace Frames the beauty of her ways How he’d sing for you He would move you the way he always does The devil and the dove I'm lost I'm tired Amy, he's yours I'm trying But I I tried so hard to force it down, a look, a pill, a thought I swallow soft, a deathly cough awakes me from my sleep Bathed in grey, a forced embrace I held your hand too tight You the dreamer, you the mystery, you the holy liar The heat unbinds, the sweat reminds her she’s swimming in her flaws Graceless lady, soaked in maybes Drowning in her shameless cause This fragile thing How I’ve used it spun it round my mind till the thread is worn and tired This human sting Amy’s painting The portrait that I’ve seen the woman that you need

Bird of Prey 04:41
In the backseat while gently teasing A bird of prey lures her victims Pain out and into the night In this windy city you’ll see the siren take flight We will fly to the masquerade ball And pretend we belong as we dance to the song of a parakeet Stringing us along With his new old guitar So we won’t feel too far from home Sharpen your bayonet This isn’t over yet A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time Come down to the river tonight Three queens will be there Bearing gifts, unaware that you’re not alone Your heart has been marked The wild beast has chosen her feast From a lifetime of sorrow I fled Just to follow her voice The voice in my head as I lay alone In my bones I could feel her embrace Pulling me so far from home Sharpen your bayonet This isn’t over yet A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time No tears boy You paid for the ride Best do what you’re told, as this crime unfolds You will understand When you thought you were the muse You were simply This story’s interlude

You arrived so slow and so steady How was I to know I’d let you get to me I tried to tell my mind This is just a trick Just a poetic slip Please don't say stay 'Cause I’m a cable-loose balloon And I’ll never choose I’ll simply be blown by the wind Never knowing Where I am going I have fought to see your face Then I have run from your embrace And I will never stop trying To find what it means to be free Please don't say stay 'Cause I’m a cable-loose balloon And I’ll never choose I’ll simply be blown by the wind Never knowing Where I am going
