HEAVY BEAUTY

 

I’m thinking about

Living without the suffering

Tomorrow’s woes are all on hold

Ignoring the wars

Outside your door, we’ll rise above

Those reprobates embracing hate

 

In dreams you can trust

We’re such a long time dust

 

Life has such a heavy beauty

Welcome her with open arms

The burdens can be heavy duty

But we carry on

 

Don’t ever doubt my love is devout

The hospital’s a world away

We still sashay

You’re in a malaise, just counting the days

We’ve got to make the days all count

Live in the now

 

The past has lost but time’s not won, help me

The past has lost but time’s not won, help me please…

 

Life has such a heavy beauty

Welcome her with open arms

The burdens can be heavy duty

Life has such a heavy beauty

The frost of an unsettled sun

Forget all their forever cruelty

And carry on

 

 

HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED

 

Cold and bare

A consequence of a love affair

After all I’ve been through

My heart stayed true

Screw you

 

Your sick games

Have dragged me into these flames

I hope you like mine as well

Let’s take a tour through hell

 

Can you see your body shaking?

Can you feel your lips are quaking?

Can you taste your sweet, sweet tears?

Darling tell me of your fears

 

I just want to set you on fire

Want to bury you alive

Want to drown you in your own blood

After I’ve sliced you with a knife

I just want to set you on fire

Want to bury you alive

You’ll wish you were never born

’cause hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

 

Every teardrop from me

Becomes a blood drop from you

Every breath you have left

I’ll be here with you…

 

I just want to set you on fire

Want to bury you alive

Want to drown you in your own blood

Sweetness, I’m in overdrive

I just want to set you on fire

Want to bury you alive

I was your rose now I’m your thorn

’cause hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

 

 

I’M ARMAGEDDON

 

I glide my way beyond the crowds

Of humans caught in lonely shrouds

My chosen weapon is my truth

My mission calls when I spy you

Selling hypocrisy as selflessness

Well, hell can find a space or two

 

I, I have no meaning

I’m not believing

But I’m doing well

I, I’m armageddon

I’m not from heaven

I come from hell

 

I’ll write your final chapter now

Much sooner than you were expecting

I’ll see you get what you deserve

For your contemptuous invective

Prepare for chaos, angels fall from grace

And no, your god can’t hear them cry

 

For your saviour can’t dictate

As your behaviour seals your fate

No absolution it’s too late

 

 

HOLD ON TO ME

 

Take a look at me

Never been strong and never been free

Take a look at me

Show me the place where I never wanted to be

Crack a smile for me

Is it alright if I don’t belong?

Crack a smile for me

I’ve never been strong and never been so wrong

 

Hold on to me

I’ve never been so low

Show me the world is real

On a distant shore

Make me shiver

Make me smile one day

Wipe all my teardrops away

At least for today

 

Take a look at me

A dreamer adrift unsure of which lie to believe

Take a look at me

A candle unlit in need of some fire to breathe

Would you stand by me?

I’ve been on this lonely road for too long

Would you breathe for me

Before it’s too late

Take a hold of me

The briefest embrace is all that I need for relief

Take a hold of me

You have to be strong just to know when you are weak

 

 

RAIN

 

Pure dirt upon the face

The mind is caged in time, not space

Chained feet that need to run

Bloody hands pointing a gun

Bloody hands pointing a gun

What have I done?

 

Rain

Rain on me

Rain on me

Rain on me

Rain

Wash away the blood from my hands

Blur all my plans

And rain on me

 

Dry mouth lied too much

Heart’s longing for your touch

Rain will dilute all my tears

Rain will overflow these fears

 

Rain

Rain on me

Rain on me

Rain on me

Rain

Wash away the blood from this land

Blur all my plans

And rain on me

 

 

KILL BITTERNESS WITH LOVE

 

We can kill bitterness with love

Inform our own imperfect world

Whatever’s below, whatever’s above

Let us kill bitterness with love

Kill bitterness with love

 

You see war on your screen

Malice calls door-to-door

And suspicion’s become nine tenths of the law

We shall dive into the deep

To escape this antipathy

 

Wishing anguish on those

Who you know through their grief

As a stranger becomes a sworn enemy

Until they bleed into the sea

In the name of democracy

 

The streets are burning around us but we’ll find a way

The world keeps turning without us but come we must stay

The flags unfurling surround us but love will prevail

For we need honesty

Open minds, inner peace

Find a shared symphony

 

We can kill bitterness with love

Inform our own imperfect world

Whatever’s below, whatever’s above

Let us kill bitterness with love

Kill bitterness with love

Inform our own imperfect world

Whatever’s below, whatever’s above

Let us kill bitterness with love

 

It’s more than just a four letter word

Whatever’s below, whatever’s above

Let us kill bitterness with love

Kill bitterness with love

 

 

SNOW BLACK

 

Mirror, mirror in my hand

Who’s the fairest in the land?

Dwarfs, bring me the little slut

We’ll have an orgy in her blood

We’ll have an orgy in her blood…

 

They say beauty is fleeting

It’s not as brief as the kindness in me

So I became cruel, vile and mean

The warning prevails

Don’t mess with the queen

 

You dreamed you’d be wed to him

In an enchanted chapel

But nightmares are much more fun

My child, he’ll taste my apple

 

Dismiss everything they told you in those fairy tales

Real life is etched in sin

There is no happy ending

And the good don’t deserve to win

 

They say beauty is fleeting

It’s not as brief as the kindness in me

So I became cruel, vile and mean

The warning prevails

Don’t mess…

 

Soul as cold as snow

Lips red from blood

Heart as black as your last night

With a poisoned apple behind my back

Displeased to meet you

I’m Snow Black

 

 

I DON’T KNOW, I DON’T CARE

 

You say you’re still alive

Believe me I don’t care

And if you die tonight

Believe me I don’t care

You say you’ll move away

Believe me I don’t care

Your past is so passé

Believe me I don’t care

 

I have conquered fear

My path is crystal clear

When I die today

Today

 

I don’t know, I don’t care

Your worth was never found

I don’t know, I don’t care

I’d swim to watch you drown

I don’t know, I don’t care

Nobody’s counting down

I don’t know, I don’t care

If you are still around

 

(When my heart is aching)

Not a single tear

(When the rope is fraying)

Salvation seems so near

(I will find release)

When I die today

(And the rest is peace)

Today

(Today)

 

I have conquered fear

My path is crystal clear

Not a single tear

Salvation seems so near

You say you’re still alive

The proof is barely there

 

 

CINDERELLA

 

(Oh Cinderella) You let them print the myth 

(Oh Cinderella) But you strut like you’re Satan’s gift

(Oh Cinderella) Only once were you swathed in cinders

(Oh Cinderella) Smiling as fire killed your sisters

(Oh Cinderella) Acidic wit and gravestone soul

(Oh Cinderella) No Godmother, you work alone

(Oh Cinderella) In search of power and golden rings

(Oh Cinderella) You’d flirt with fate and charm the Prince

 

Step one – The Ball
(Oh Cinderella much more in petto, oh Cinderella death by stiletto)

Sinner takes all

 

Well your spell’s not broken at midnight

Oh Cinderella, siren of dark light

Just one stare – the Prince was snared

Beauty’s wasted on oh so many

Oh Cinderella, drenched in confetti

Hear the applause – the future’s yours (Oh Cinderella)

 

(Oh Cinderella) The Prince pounced on the night you wed

(Oh Cinderella) To turn your ‘no’ into a brutal ‘yes’

(Oh Cinderella) Your glass stiletto slashed his neck

(Oh Cinderella) He bled to death on a virgin’s bed

 

Step two – The Throne
(Oh Cinderella much more in petto, oh Cinderella death by stiletto)

All on your own

 

Well your spell’s not broken at midnight

Oh Cinderella, siren of dark light

Next to you we’re ugly too

Beauty’s wasted on oh so many

Oh Cinderella, artful but deadly

You’ve found your cause – the kingdom’s yours

(Oh Cinderella)


Step three – Revenge

 

So you dream of nightmares to start

Oh Cinderella, one wish in her heart

Justice is so seductive

When they crossed your dear Father you swore

Oh Cinderella, all love is cold war

The one true friend is pure revenge

Fury’s wasted on oh so many

Oh Cinderella fetched the machete

Next to suffer – your Stepmother

Well her hell’s not over till first light

Oh Cinderella, this is your birthright

Hear her screams and live your dream

Oh Cinderella…

 

 

I LOVE THE WAY YOU SAY MY NAME

 

In the darkest night there’s only your light

That keeps my dream alive

In my bleakest times I have you as my guide

To fill the void inside

 

First time I heard your voice I had no doubt

I felt that I had found a chance at life

Took me by the hand, made my spirit rise

Taught me how to live without disguise

 

I was trapped in my mind

Then you freed me from my shame

Ooh I love the way you say my name

 

You remind me of something deep in my heart

I’d long given up on

In this shadowed room there’s only one spark

We both know we’re the one

 

I would sin for you to take me in your arms

Sell my soul for you, keep you safe from harm

For a single kiss I would start a war

You’re the only cause that I would die for

 

I would sin for you

Sell my soul for you

Start a war for you

I would kill for you

I would sin for you

Sell my soul for you

Start a war for you

I would die for you

 

I would sin for you

Sell my soul for you

Start a war for you

Blood I’d spill for you

I would sin for you

Lose control for you

Start a war for you

I would die for you

 

 

FROZEN FIRE

 

When the wind changed my picture of you

It blows away your facade

In every lie I’ll find a trace of truth

You are the devil but my God

You are so perfect but so flawed

 

You’re my doom and my desire

You let me fall then take me higher

The purest water, the dirtiest mire

My honest liar

My frozen fire

 

Carry me to the darkest place

And I will still find some light

In every fight I seek defeat in victory

I feel exposed but so secure

Feel like your queen and like your whore

 

You’re my angel, my vampire

You make me fall to take me higher

The sweetest sound, the tuneless choir

My frozen fire

 

You’re the room where dreams conspire

You hear my call, the great denier

The port in storms, the funeral pyre

My cruel messiah

My frozen fire

 

You’re the wound I most admire

My honest liar

My frozen fire

 

IN ANOTHER LIFE

 

I try to steer clear of your eyes

Your touch still takes me down in flames

But from these ashes I can’t rise

To face this journey with no aim

A pregnant pause turns poisonous

The pendulum swings out of spite

A sense of loss we can’t discuss

As silence echoes through the night

 

And so we wish upon the stars

Life do us part

Till death unites us

 

If love has failed to find a way

Then is this worthy of the name?

The heartache of a dream denied

Believe we’ll be together on the other side

We’ll do much better in another life

 

I see the fear behind your eyes

Your words decry, they seldom praise

When once your passion unified

Oh how I’m yearning for those days

 

And so we wish upon the stars

Life do us part

Till death unites us

 

If love has sailed beyond the bay

We can be rescued come what may

A twist of fate can turn the tide

Believe we’ll be together on the other side

We’ll be much better in another life

Beware the truth it never dies

MERCHANDISE
