Track Name: Cassandra x The Static
Forgone and gone
That love, which was owed to you.

My son, my son
I'm sorry that your world is new

And if I may --
Try that I might to love what once was bare

My skin, my love
Your touch, your touch
Our sin is what you share.

And I'm sorry
But what does an apology do.

_____

History not only repeats but it rhymes
I've never had a face, nor a space, nor a time.
We're gonna have to break some bricks before we all give in

The sound of sirens call ashore
A burning bush, the call of war
But we were always here before, you see

Repent your sins
because we will not go in silence

The Static
The Static
The Static
The Static

A relentless call from grace
To abandon this burning place
A cross to bear to break upon these chains

The ground is ours
Our blood bore your fruit
Redeem my soul from burning you

The Static
The Static

Track Name: The Year of Midnight Honey
Ritual of me coming back to you
This time my heart is true
A broken promise
Another night alone

Moonlight rises on baited breath
Will you remember if I tend to forget?

Will I erase your name?
Or get my black book wet.

Give me your breath so I know that it's wrong
Write me a song if I want to move on
And I dream of nightmares in the year of midnight, honey

Come with me
And then you'll see
That my heart bleeds in the year of midnight honey

You paint my shroud in blue and gold
I will not get you when I grow old
And I'm a ghost in your machine

Give me your breath so I know that it's wrong
Write me a song so I'll want to move on
And I dream of nightmares in the year of midnight,
honey

Come with me
And then you'll see
That my heart bleeds in the year of midnight, honey
Track Name: Agnus Dei (The Ballad of Erzuile Freda)
The girl is always quiet
The girls run down the stairs
The sound of a smile is violence
The sum of a love isn't fair

She sits on the porch with her roses
Wearing a crown composed of spit and gold
The sigh of a sinner beholden
Son of a man
My child's tired soul
Track Name: Girl
Fear the calling
of the dancer
He'll always be your girl

Overshadowed
Hidden cancer
A fiery small worn pearl

She's not alone
No skin in this game
Her hell's become a home

Forbidden rain
Every tear that falls
The scent of Love's cologne


Hear the sound of footsteps
From beyond a warm embrace

Doesn't matter what your lie is
As long as you save face
Track Name: Anodyne (Playing the Ghost)
I know you're playing the ghost
We're going nowhere
I know you're seeking a host
I can't be your rosegarden no more

We can't pretend there's fate in your hostility
Your tongue, your taste
This pain is nothing new to me
I can't move on
the thought of something beautiful
We can't turn off, our hearts go black, we feel the pull in

You know he's doing the most
A cold burst of pain up his arm
This is the last time he said
Unwrap the needle, press off

We can't pretend there's fate in your hostility
Your tongue, your taste
This pain is nothing new to me

I can't move on, the thought of something beautiful
You can't turn off,
Our hearts go black,
We feel the pull in

You know you're playing the ghost
You're going nowhere
Track Name: Recursion
[ i n s t r u m e n t a l ]
Track Name: Scheherazade (Cinema)
The citizens go marching to the calling of the silver screen

The road to heaven lies
A killing comes in threes

Cold in the night
Shiver shiver

Sold all your life
Your heart too cruel

The children torched their guns
They only want to be free
A fate that cruelty wants
Against the court of family trees

Cold in the night
Shiver shiver

Sold all your life
Your heart too cruel

I just can't
Fight through a battle of emptiness for your love
Can't be your
Soul when you sold it
For heartache,
A deal with the devil
My sad beloved

Hearts bound by blood
My restless love
Track Name: Roses
[ i n s t r u m e n t a l ]
Track Name: Weight of the Wind
Do you find me to be a dragon
Smoke billows like baby breath
A kiss to your heart in the darkness
My head's upside down, I'm a mess

When was the last time you felt lonely?
Was it the pull of a warm rain without wet?

Like a fox gone to war
Lie awake in your den
Tie the universe to us
Gods, this war must begin
I loved you for nothing
weight of the wind

I --
I loved you for your secrets.
And you? You loved for a pen
And a song that would never forget you.
How do you sleep at night?
Weight of the wind.

I loved you for nothing.
Track Name: Deformer
Calligraphy
Saturnine

Whores bathed in white
My dark Knight

Thorns of gold
Higher before

//

I'll find her and bring her home, I promise
