Track Name: Siren
Oh the things you can discover
When you let yourself go under
Track Name: Delphian
Siren calls to me
From the deep I hear her song
or a warning
Luna is a friend
Pulls the sea inland
Pull it closer to me

Diving into oceans of memories
Hidden from me in the deep
Restless monsters surfacing
I must sing them back to sleep

Don't be afraid
You have all you need to swim
in the Delphian deep

Diving into oceans of memories
Hidden from me in the deep
Restless monsters surfacing
I must sing them back to sleep

Hear the Siren calling,
"Don't be afraid
You'll find the pieces
the pieces you left
(It is all within me)
Sorry about those dreams
(All these things are here)
but it's time you know"

Diving into oceans of memories
Hidden from me in the deep
Restless monsters surfacing
I must sing them back to sleep
Track Name: Smoke
Something is broken here
None of the thoughts are clear
Take the black out of the blue
Maybe then I can see through

Snow is heavier than smoke
Still it won't amount to much
Keep on trying to fill up the holes
with something so light
I need something I can hold
Or nothing at all
Or nothing at all

Something is broken here
None of the thoughts are clear
Take the black out of the blue
Maybe then I can see through

I want to kill the need to feel anything
I want a hear that doesn't bleed
I have an angry heart
she feeds and bleeds
I have no control
I want something I can hold
Or nothing at all
Or nothing at all

Something is broken here
None of the thoughts are clear
Take the black out of the blue
Maybe then I can see through

Keep me safe inside
The emptier the space
the less I need to hide

Something is broken here
None of the thoughts are clear
Take the black out of the blue
Maybe then I can see through
Track Name: Edge
All my senses disconnected
Silence fills my heart
My whole world is touching madness
Chaos rules my thoughts

If I were to see the edge
Even with the lines blurred
Would I find something to show
To show me which side I'm on

Feel my life force build on structures
No one understands
You have come to try and break through
No one's getting in

If I were to let go
of all reason that sustains me
Could I survive the fall into darkness
and still hold light in my hand

There may be some kind of order here
but I can still see through the cracks
Underneath the surface I'm falling apart
It's all made of glass
Track Name: Northern Star
I get lost in haunted places
You've seen how my darkness blankets us

Don't look back
I promise I'm on my way
You know my angels are consistently late
But I have on my map
this one destination

I will follow you
My Northern Star

Navigate through and sneak by the ferryman
We've had to be more clever than this
We got tricks

But don't look back
I promise I'm on my way
You know my demons
keep my playing with fate
But I have on my map
this one destination

I will follow you
My Northern Star
I will follow you
When I lose myself

When I finally catch up to you
I will carry you home
Track Name: Lilitu
Sisters
bonds can break
Even made of clouds they separate
When they do
Lilitu comes through

Say you're here to keep the girls all safe
As you put another mermaid on your plate
You keep watch for clouds you think might stray
from your sky
Would you bring them down
just to make them stay

You in your purple haze
wrap us in your vague embrace
When we cry
Lilitu comes through

Say you're here to keep the girls all safe
As you put another mermaid on your plate
You keep watch for clouds you think might stray
from your sky
Would you bring them down
just to make them stay

You go from cloud to cloud
Fill them up with thunderous applause
until they swell with water
Then you drink until they're just vapor
And you
you'll say how you never liked a clear blue sky

You insist on using this little storm
to make your escape
Track Name: Penance
I learned to hide inside myself
Is this the sacrifice
No love
No love

I've been on my knees for years
begging for your love
Will your absolution come
or should I keep hailing Mary
You know every cut I make
I do it in his name

Refuse the bread
and break the bond
This freedom has a price
No love
No love

I've been on my knees for years
begging for your love
Will your absolution come
or should I keep hailing Mary
You know every cut I make
I do it in your name
Track Name: Anodyne
Know the taste of this on my lips
It's your snake oil kiss
Drink you in and I am fading
Once a flower
Now a stone

So silent
I shoulda screamed
This violence
you gave to me
I never gave away
Like mercury accumulates
I know the elixir is mine
The pain will be my anodyne

Sea green tourmaline
Amber and aquamarine
couldn't keep this innocent
Pretty things all burned to ash

So silent
I shoulda screamed
This violence
you gave to me
I never gave away
Like mercury accumulates
I know the elixir is mine
The pain will be my anodyne

You know
You know
You know and I know
You know what you did

So silent
I should screamed

No
No

I know the elixir is mine
The pain will be my anodyne
Track Name: Gorgeous Speaks
"Gorgeous", he said
"Let's just keep this between us
Don't you understand what you do to a man
Just can't help myself
looking like you do"

Go ahead but don't forget my name, Mister
Girls like me grow up and learn to rage, Mister

"Gorgeous", he said
"We both know why I'm here
You put on the dress
now offer your flesh"
Is that all I am
An offering to your lust

Go ahead but don't forget my name, Mister
Girls like me grow up and learn to rage, Mister

You owe me something you cannot repay
Might not get what you owe
but one day you will pay

Girls like me grow up
Girls like me grow up
Girls like me grow up and learn to rage
Track Name: Persephone's Blues
Won't be goin' down that river no more
Think I've done my time
I won't eat another pomegranate seed
just to make you happy

I'm dyin' here in the land of the dead
I wanna live in the land of the living

Blood gets thicker here the further down you go
Down this river of sorrow
Why are you so sad to see me go

I'm dyin' here in the land of the dead
I wanna live in the land of the living

Barely made it out alive
Barely made it out alive

Won't be goin' down that river no more
And I won't eat another pomegranate seed
just to make you happy
Track Name: Saturnalia
Luna tether
I feel a pull that I must follow
Here under glass
coming up fast
hoping for an ether crash

Been receiving an incoming message
from my other side
It's all clear out in space
so I say "engage"
Hold on tight
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

Wonder what's out there
I think a journey of another kind is waiting
and it's out there
Wonder what's out there
I think a journey of another kind is waiting
and it's out there

Tired of myself
Time to spread out
before I start to drown
Just bring the wine
and we'll have a kind of homecoming
before it's time
A rocket girl has got to fly

Wonder what's out there
I think a journey of another kind is waiting
and it's out there
Wonder what's out there
I think a journey of another kind is waiting
and it's out there

But I'm keeping my laurel on
This supplicant just isn't done
But I'm keeping my laurel on
This supplicant just isn't gone

Saturn bound
Saturn found
Saturn bound
Saturn found

Saturn bound
Saturn found
And she's gone
