run, desire, run
a sexual being
running like a blade
to and through heart, no conscience
one motive: cater to the hollow

screaming, feed me here, fill me up again
temporarily pacify this hunger that's so cruel

grow, libido, throw dominoes of indescretions down,
falling all around in cycles, in circles
constantly consuming, conquering, devour

cos its time to bring the fire down,
bridle all this indiscretion
long enough to edify and permanently fill this hollow

screaming, feed me here, fill me up again
temporarily pacifying
feed me here, fill me up again
temporarily pacifying...

overcome by your moving temple
overcome by this holiest of altars
so pure, so rare, to witness such a lovely goddess
I've lost my self control,
I'm compelled to throw this dollar down before you,
holiest of altars

I'll sell my soul,
I'll sell my self esteem a dollar at a time
for one chance, one kiss, one taste of you my Magdalena

I bear witness, to this place, this prayer so long forgotten
so pure, so rare, to witness such a lovely goddess

I'll sell my soul, my self esteem
a dollar at a time
for one chance, one kiss, one taste of you my black Madonna

I'd sell my soul, my self esteem
a dollar at a time
for one taste, one taste, one taste of you,
my Magdalena...

don't disturb the beast, the temperamental goat, the snail,
while he's feeding on the rose
stay rose, and compromise, what I will, I am

been around, the wind silently blown about
again I'm treading so
soft and lightly compromising my will, I am

I am my will, so no longer will I
lay down, play dead
play hard to...
in the headlights, locked down and terrified
your deer in the headlights, shined on and horrified

when push comes to pull comes to shove comes to step around this
self-destructive dance that never would have managed,
I rose, I roared aloud, hear my will, I am

I am my will, so no longer will I
lay down, play dead,
play this gun-shy martyr

I rose, I roared, my will, I am...

you're such an inspiration
for the ways that I will never ever choose to be
oh so many ways for me to show you how your savior has abandoned you

fuck your god, your lord, your Christ,
he did this, took all you had and left you this way
still you prayed, never straying, never taste of the fruit,
never thought to question why

it's not like you killed someone
it's not like you drove the hateful spear into his side
praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed
he did it all for you...he did it all for you

oh so many ways for me to show you how your dogma has abandoned you
pray to your Christ, to your god,
never taste of the fruit
never stray, never break, never choke on the lie
even though he's the one who did this to you
you never thought to question why

it's not like you killed someone
it's not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
talk to Jesus Christ as if he knows the reasons why 
he did it all for you

he did it all for you...he did it all for you

metaphor for a missing moment
pull me into your perfect circle

one womb, one shape, one result
liberate this will, to release us all

gotta cut away, clear away, slip away and sever this
umbilical residue
keeping me from killing you
and from pulling you down with me in here
I can almost hear you scream

one more medicated peaceful moment
one more medicated peaceful moment

and I don't wanna feel this overwhelming hostility
don't wanna feel this overwhelming hostility

gotta cut away, clear away, slip away and sever this
umbilical residue
gotta cut away, clear away, slip away and sever this
umbilical residue
keeping me from killing you
slip away and sever this
keeping me from killing you

threw you the obvious
and you flew with it on your back
a name in your recollection down among a million same

difficult not to feel a little bit disappointed and passed over
when I've looked right through to see you naked but oblivious
and you don't see me

threw you the obvious, just didn't see if there's more behind the
eyes of a fallen angel, eyes of a tragedy
here I am expecting just a little bit too much from the wounded
but I see, see through it all, see through,
and see you

cos I threw you the obvious to see what occurs behind the
eyes of a fallen angel, eyes of a tragedy

oh well...oh well...
apparently nothing
apparently nothing at all

you don't, you don't, you don't...see me
you don't, you don't, you don't...see me
you don't, you don't, you don't...see me

you don't see me, you...you don't...
you don't see me at all...


S L E E P I N G  B E A U T Y
delusional, I believed I could cure it all for you, dear
coax or trick or drive or
drag the demons from you,
make it right for you, sleeping beauty
truly thought I could magically heal you

you're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
failing miserably to rescue...sleeping beauty

drunk on ego, truly thought I could make it right
if I kissed you one more time to help you face the nightmare
but you're far too poisoned for me,
such a fool to think that I could wake you from your slumber,
I could actually heal you
sleeping beauty, poisoned and hopeless

far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
failing miserably to find a way to comfort you
far beyond a visible sign or your awakening
hiding from some poisoned memory

poisoned and hopeless, sleeping beauty

humble and helpless, learning to pray
praying for visions to show me the way

show me the way to forgive you, allow me to let it go
allow me to be forgiving, show me the way to let go
show me the way to forgive you, allow me to let it go
allow me to be forgiving, show me the way to let go

you made me yours...you made me
you pave the way
just praying for you to show me where I'm to begin

hoping to reconnect...to you...


R E N H O L D E R
(vocal track is hard to hear and understand over the instrumental)
I'll (come find/confirm/commend?) you now
I'll (...) you now

lights...
I will not fall down
I will not fall down

lying all alone and restless, unable to lose this image
sleepless, unable to focus on anything but your surrender

tugging a vision to the rhythm that's in my head
tugging a beat to the sight of your lying
so delighted with your new understanding
something about a little evil that makes that
unmistakable noise I was hearing
unmistakable sound I know so well
spent and sighing with a look in your eye
spent and sighing with a look on your face like

sweet revelation...sweet surrender
surrendering...surrendering...surrendering

turning rhythm to the vision that's in my head
tugging a beat to to the sight of your lying
so delighted with your new understanding
something about a little evil that makes that
unmistakable noise I was hearing
unmistakable sound I know so well
spent and sighing with a look in your eyes
spent and sighing with a look on your face like

sweet revelation...sweet surrendering
sweet revelation...sweet...

thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking... (20x)

sweet revelation...sweet surrendering
sweet revelation

my reflection grabs and pulls me under
she seemed what else to be...bathed in breņa

guide me safely in worlds I've never been to
shield me, heal me, my dear breņa
feeling so vulnerable, but it's all right

heal me, heal me, my dear breņa
show me lonely and show me openings
to bring me closer to you
my dear breņa

feeling so vulnerable, but it's all right
opening to heal, opening to heal
heal...heal...

been over...been over this before
been over and over...been over this before
and over...and over this before

so over this
been over this...so over this

been over this...over this before
