Track Name: Keep Breathing
Turn your diary to the page
Of a day you wish you could forget
Those scrawled words contain a rage
You can't leave behind just yet
Carry it inside of you for far too long
You've a long way left to go
Keep yourself alive

I can show you how to dream
Dream baby dream

Now there's a pain that just won't go
It ebbs but never numbs
The worst part is that you know
What you've become
Carry it inside of you, you can't let go
But you've potential to be saved
This you know

I'd only wanted you to be
The one who'd catch me when I fell
It's over when three reduce to one
I'd follow you into hell
That same hoary old adolescent cliche
So easy to fall back on
With nothing to convey

I can show you how to dream
Dream baby dream
Track Name: Mental
Dark adventure on a sleeping river
Hold me lest I shake or shiver
And then I'd rock the dreaming boat
I'll hide small and fragile
In your coat

I am a martyr for your cause
I longing for the crowd's applause
I should look after myself
You're a risk to my mental health

I will contemplate your blank and silent face
Write you the greatest love song
Then vanish without trace
And if you think you're getting sympathy tonight
Think on

I am a martyr for your cause
I longing for the crowd's applause
I should look after myself
You're a risk to my mental health
Track Name: Annalise
I stand in the gallow's shadow
As you can plainly see
I run with the damned my darling
So don't keep up with me
Annalise
Annalise
Wipe the tear from your eye
It's not your fault, it's not your fault
That I'm condemned to die
I was born here now i'll die here against my will
Revenge
Some people should be killed
Annalise
Annalise
Wipe the tear from your eye
My silence protects you
Else you'd be by my side

In the shadow of the gallows
As you can plainly see
See I run with the damned my darling
Or rather they run from me
Annalise
Annalise
I see fear in my eyes
It's my silence that protects you
Or you'd be by my side
Annalise, Annalise
Annalise, Annalise
Wipe the tear from your eye
It's my silence that protects you
You should be by my side
Track Name: Sad Place For A Small Shadow
A very sad place for a very small shadow
A very small shadow in a very sad place
Our lady of conflagration
An angel in conversation
Angelic conflagration
Our lady of conflagration
A very sad place for a very small shadow
A very small shadow in a very sad place
No means no sometimes so does yes
No means no sometimes so does yes
No means no sometimes so does yes
Our lady of conflagration
There's no room for conversation
No room for conversation, no womb
For conflagration
A very sad place for a very small shadow
A very small shadow in a very sad place

A very sad place for a very sad shadow
A small face inshallah
A very sad place a very small face
Your castaway
Your martyr
Your secret
Your seer
Your shaman
Your mystic twink
Prolix, prose
You'd do anything for the myth
Prolix and roses a funeral
A very sad place a very sad shadow
A very small face in the shallows
Track Name: Always Joking
Now at your feet of clay I fawn
A crumpled wino's grin to mask the scorn
With ceremonial feathers adorned
Parade in many fading forms
Sugar coma - kiss the ground
Ice white lips and temple brow
Then you send it tumbling down
With a kiss

Oh you were joking?
I'm always joking - ha
So you were joking
I'm always joking

The strength of the living
The peace of the dead
I'd settle just for one
You'll make me healthy wealthy and wise
And I'd settle just for one
My shotgun husband
Your translucent androgynous
Our honeymoon slow motion suicide
Give me style, give me grace
I'd settle just for one

You must be joking
I'm always joking - ha
You must be joking
I'm always joking - ha

Fingers entwine in my hair and pull me down
Into your velvet void I'll surely drown
Regrettably I must reject your crown
I reject, I reject this crown of thorns
