Track Name: Silver Tongue
Silver tongue
Midas Mouth
Weld your words
And spit them out
Every voice
Every sound
Choose your words
And make them count

In the neon glow
In the neon glow
Hold your crystal ball
Look into the smoke
I don’t wanna know
I don’t wanna know
What the future holds
What the future holds

I don’t wanna know, no
What the future holds, holds
I don’t wanna know, no
What the future holds
Won’t you tell me though?

Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me, tell me

If I turn to stone
If I turn to stone
When your fingers roll
Down my flesh and bone
When it all erodes
When it all erodes
Will you keep me whole
Will you keep me whole?

Will you keep me whole, whole
Fill me up with gold, gold
Will you keep me whole, whole
Fill me up with gold, gold

Silver tongue
Blow your smoke
Eat yours words
And burn your throat
Silver tongue
Blow your smoke
Eat your words
I hope you choke
Track Name: Bloom
When you’re born to breathe fire
You bow down to no one else
Queen of the wild
Queen of the riot
Bow down into yourself
Come and breathe fire

In the waves I’m falling under
The weight comes crashing down
And I’m blooming underwater
And I’m moving through the sound
In the waves I’m falling under
The weight comes crashing down
But I know that’s it’s just water
Sink or swim or float or drown

In a world underwater
Dive down into yourself
Heart of the fire
Queen of the sirens
Queen of the mar y sol
Come and breathe fire

In the waves I’m falling under
The weight can’t hold me down
And I’m blooming underwater
And I’m moving through the sound
In the waves I’m falling under
The weight comes crashing down
But I know that’s it’s just water
Sink or swim or float or drown
Track Name: Glass Skin
Blinding prism
Lost myself inside
A glass house
Impossible to hide
Bright lights
Through the window
Bang my fists
In silent cries
But I am trapped in
A glass skin
Of manufactured light

And I can’t hide

It’s a prison
Built up in my mind
And escaping
Is impossible to try
When I
Bar all the windows
And the doors
From the inside
Held captive
In my skin
And no will left to fight

And I can’t hide

It’s a heavy heart I
Heavy heart I carry
It’s a heavy heart I
Heavy heart I bear

I can’t hide
Track Name: Serpentine
Ice queen
Serpentine
Venom dripping from your teeth
I need
Something
Pump my veins with dopamine
Highly
Likely
You’re the voice inside me
And I need
Something
Give it to me

And I’m tripping out on the come up
With the
Words slipping out of my mouth
Shut up
Truth dripping down to the ground
If you wanna
Keep me company

Cause I
I am tired
Tired of trying
Trying to fight you
To fight you
When I
I’d just like
Like to climb
Climb inside you, inside you

Ice queen
Serpentine
Bite my flesh and make me bleed
Poison ivy
Coiled up to strike at me
Blindly
Fighting
With that voice inside me
And I need
Something
And everything

A succubus is what you are
A succubus is what you are
A succubus is what you are
what we are
Track Name: Siren
Talk to me, to me, to me
I start running when you
Call to me, to me, to me
And keep coming
Cause I don’t really know what I’m seeing
Am I make believing?
Is this lucid dreaming?

Who do you think you are?
Who do you take me for?
Who are waiting for?
I’m who you really are

Put me on the chase
I’ll run it
Creeping like a snake
I’m coming for you
If you were a maze
I’d run it
Siren on the waves
I’m calling to you

I’m, I’m calling to you
I’m, I’m calling to you

Talk to me, to me, to me
You start running when you
Call to me, to me, to me
You keep coming
And you don’t really know what you’re seeing
Is this lucid dreaming?
Or just wishful thinking?

The future is calling
But you don’t wanna talk
The past is a siren
And you got caught up in her song
Track Name: Girl
Eyes wide open
To the world
Lay in my garden
Little girl
Some may cry serpent
When you curl
Your limbs into woman
Warrior

Lay your eyes on me
Hypnotizing
All that I see
Is turned to stone by me
Lay your eyes on me
Hypnotizing
All that I see
Is turned to stone by me

Take me down
Hold me under, under
Take me down
Hold me under

Eyes wide open
Little girl
You are a weapon
To the world
Spit out your magic
And be heard
Speak like a dragon
With fire

Take me down to the water, mother
Hold me under
I cannot breathe
Take me down to the water, mother
Baptize me
Take me down to the water, mother
Hold me under
I cannot see
Take me down to the water, mother
Baptize me

Take me down
Hold me underwater
Take me down
Hold me underwater
Take me down
Hold me under, under
Take me down
Hold me under, mother
Track Name: Drift
I stumble, stumble
Through a jungle, jungle inside
Medusa’s wonder
Left me undone
Out of my mind

Sinking underwater
Heavy like a stone
Drifiting further under
Sinking like fool’s gold

Who will love me, love me?
Who will love me, love me?
Who will love me, love me?
Who will love me, love me?
Track Name: Lungs
Swimming through
Pools of blue
Dripping into
A golden hue
That we long to
That we long to
That we long to
Return to

Inside
You walk a line
Just out of sight
And out of mind
And it’s all blue
And it’s all blue
And it’s all blue
That we see through

Time comes to call on all things
A golden ghost whispering
To every form of body
Return to dust, return to dust

You want your silver lining
The truth is hypnotizing
One golden thread unwinding
Till it’s cut, till it’s cut
And sewn in the web of all things
Grown in the land inside me
One oceanic body
Infinite, infinite

Lotus lips
With heavy eyes
And phantom limbs
For phantom lives
That we move through
That we move through
That we move through
In the deep blue

Break ties
Follow your mind
And find your eyes
And climb inside
A door that you
You never knew
When you were blue, blue, blue

The wheel is fixed in motion
Spinning straw to golden
Thread yet to be woven
Into this endless ocean
The wheel is fixed in motion
Spinning straw to golden
Thread yet to be woven
Into this endless ocean
Track Name: Deep Blue
Swimming through
Pools of blue
Dripping into
A golden hue
That we long to
That we long to
That we long to
Return to

Inside
You walk a line
Just out of sight
And out of mind
And it’s all blue
And it’s all blue
And it’s all blue
That we see through

Time comes to call on all things
A golden ghost whispering
To every form of body
Return to dust, return to dust

You want your silver lining
The truth is hypnotizing
One golden thread unwinding
Till it’s cut, till it’s cut
And sewn in the web of all things
Grown in the land inside me
One oceanic body
Infinite, infinite

Lotus lips
With heavy eyes
And phantom limbs
For phantom lives
That we move through
That we move through
That we move through
In the deep blue

Break ties
Follow your mind
And find your eyes
And climb inside
A door that you
You never knew
When you were blue, blue, blue

The wheel is fixed in motion
Spinning straw to golden
Thread yet to be woven
Into this endless ocean
The wheel is fixed in motion
Spinning straw to golden
Thread yet to be woven
Into this endless ocean
Track Name: Future Gold
Oracle
Hear me out
Take the words
From my mouth
Eat em whole
Or spit em out
Oracle
I’m breaking down

I, I, I’m breaking down
Breaking down
I, I, I’ll wait it out
Wait it out

Who knows
Where it goes
Who knows
The future is made of gold

Oracle
On the mount
Give me words
Echo loud
If you know
Tell me now
Oracle
I’ll take you down

I, I, I’ll take you down
Take you down
I, I, I’ll wait it out
Wait it out

All the wicked games
All the wicked games that we play
All the wicked things
All the wicked things that we say
All the wicked games
All the wicked games that we play
All the wicked things, wicked things
