Track Name: Intro
One Collective soul
Manifested in myriad forms
Holds a gaze I can’t escape
Pierced me like a tarot blade
Fierce as an Iceni dagger
Track Name: Morrigan
The Morrigan,
Sweet phantom queen,
Corvid goddess,
Trinity.
Odins Omens,
Fly to me,
Feathered angels
Murders came in threes.

In my dreams I tried to soar,
Through onyx skies, I’d always fall.
I walked a path through fields of fire,
Crackled flames masked old desires.
The battle cry raged forth like hell
Shrieked inside a former self
The maiden, nymph, crone
The new, waxing, old

Autumn’s here
Ruination
Battle Drunk
Blood Gush
War Torn
Underfoot
Raking fingers
Ravens Gnaw

Blush a fierce crimson glow
Like mountain floor below
Red like Hergest
Dance the waltz that turns the tides
Submerge into lake to die
be reborn
bask in cleansing blue
Light of the Mother Moon
Track Name: Indra
Infinite jewels reflecting over and over
Caught in a web, of the hearts
I longed to hold in my own,
To overcome the solitude,
The only thing i've ever known

The web i weave is not beautiful
I thought it would be, in false delusion
But knew that it could never hold
The hearts i half took, and guarded with nothing
But the knowledge I never meant to hurt or maim

So the web hung shyly in skies of silver
Reflecting the ignorance and innocence
Held in my own heart
My naive, battered heart
On pedestal
Or podium
Or hung on museum wall
Drawn and quartered

Drawn and quartered

As web cascades
Intertwines
Combusts
Implodes
Into a super nova
Of the hearts that i once knew
I still possess them
They lay dormant, not forgotten

Like Volcanic daydream
Haze of ecstasy, lost in an instant

Infinite jewels reflecting over and over
Caught in a web, of the hearts
I longed to hold in my own,
To overcome the solitude,
The only thing i've ever known
Track Name: Holy, cold, grey
Cold Shadows of grey
Feels like my insides
Piece of my heart, taken
Without exchange, of kiss or presence
Eyes green with envy, no longer whole

Grace me with your smile
I'm shaking like a child
Wading through fractured glass
Remains of the mirrors that once built by my bed

I despised them, once fearful of the face looking through
I've been broken, cast away
I stand alone
Holy
Cold
Grey
Track Name: Poison
Spare me from your poison, your poison, you're poison
Spare me from every drop of poison, your poison, you're poison

Our lips never touch when you leave,
Perched on the passenger seat of my own mind,
A bystander at most

Numb, emotions seep out like damp on the walls
And now i don't know what to do, lone
Wandering through the void
Wandering through the time

Heart in hands, trembling
No respect is due, no not to you

I woke in your bed, you woke in mine
My love was never enough
And now i'm left falling in,
The arms of every boy, wearing your skin

Trapped in loves limbo
Extending arms out of
Broken Stained glass window,
Pain

Spare me from your poison, your poison, you're poison
Spare me from every drop of poison, your poison, you're poison

Our lips never touch when you leave,
Perched on the passenger seat of my own mind,
A bystander at most

Numb, emotions seep out like damp on the walls
And now i don't know what to do, lone
Wandering through the void
Wandering through the time

Disposable lovers float through the walls
Like tender ethereal beings
Whose bodies help, in the act of forgetting
Your poison x3
You're poison
Track Name: Boudicca
Danse Macabre through pillaged planes of imagination
Sacred heart, weakest muscle in my torso
Gateway to hell

Thrown to the wolves
Howls echo still
London burns red tonight
London burns red tonight
Time fades to dust

Boudicca x 3

I hold the reigns to my own life in fearful hands,
But do not doubt me, for i shall raise your cities of the mind
To the ground

Boudicca x 3
Track Name: Harlequin
Taste a kiss
Once so sweet
Honey drips through crooked teeth
Coats like enamel,
On weakened bones
Harlequin your mind is old,
A character assigned a soul
Harlequin your mind is old
A character assigned a soul
Harlequin your mind is old.

Tried to catch my reflection in murky puddle, but
Caught my shadow instead
Kisses carved in cold hard cement
Caress the carcass of a life once known

A problem solved
By itself
Heartache
Instead of
Another Heartache
Disappear
Into unobtainable form
Disintegrate into
Tears

Taste a kiss
Once so sweet
Honey drips through crooked teeth
Coats like enamel,
On weakened bones
Harlequin your mind is old,
Your mind is old.
