Hannah Fury was born in a land of glittering white snow and dark, foreboding forests. When she was five years old, she moved to a land of perpetual sunshine and reflective sand. Though she enjoyed this new environment and found it beautiful in a conspicuous sort of way, she missed the cryptic and mercurial quality of her homeland. As she grew older, Hannah became increasingly aware of the disparity between her inner world and that of the "real" one which surrounded her. To counteract the effects of this fractured existence, she began to dabble in the occult, the extrasensory, and the covert. Her efforts consisted mainly of attempting (mostly unsucessfully) to summon spirits, to levitate objects, and (with a higher rate of success) to concoct formulations for invisible ink. She became adept at code breaking and espionage as well as numerous other activities of questionable value. During all of her formative years, Hannah also took refuge in books, immersing herself in fantasy worlds and the enviable lives of others. By the age of ten, she had read every Nancy Drew mystery and every torrid Harlequin romance novel ever published, as well as a substantial selection of classic literature. When she was 14, Hannah fell in love and was unable to concentrate on anything else for the next several years. Despite this (or perhaps because of it), when she was 16, "The Vampire Waltz" first appeared to her in its spectral form. Unlike other fragmented melodies that she had previously received, this one came complete with words and a title. Hannah soon became aware that this was not an ordinary transmission, for, unlike the others, "The Vampire Waltz" did not retreat into obscurity after a reasonable amount of time had passed. In fact, the opposite occurred, and the song's presence became so persistent that it soon overwhelmed Hannah's thoughts entirely. It was then that she decided she would do whatever was necessary to give this apparition a more solid existence, and so she began diligently to teach herself to play the unassuming upright piano that stood against a wall in her parents' home. Learning to play was a time-consuming and laborious process. Hannah never played when other family members were around, primarily due to a marked lack of technical skill which caused great consternation and bewilderment to those unfortunate enough to be within range of hearing. This made practice a rare, though impassioned (and noisy), occurrence. These clandestine moments of discord were snatched here and there, and after a few years, and despite the aforementioned absence of methodological refinement, she had become proficient enough on the instrument to complete "The Vampire Waltz" as she heard it in her mind. The obsessive psychic gates having thus been wrenched open, subsequent songs were composed quickly by any standards, and an increasingly confident writer began to emerge. Still, yet another year would pass before anyone would hear Hannah's collection of musical and lyrical creations. Secretive by nature, and aware of the potential cringeworthiness of discussing "art," Hannah desperately wanted to protect this most personal and important of endeavors.

At the start of the 1990s, Hannah was fortunate to meet a kindred spirit. She fell in love once again, and it was this trusted individual who became the first to hear Hannah's music. As a result of the encouragement she received, Hannah began to imagine, in hopeful delirium, the possibility of allowing others to hear her songs. Believing, as was the fashion of the day, that she needed financial and creative support from outside sources, Hannah recorded a four-song demo tape and sent it to several small recording companies who proceeded to ignore it utterly and without ceremony. Dejected but undeterred, Hannah continued to write songs, some of which would later become her critically acclaimed EP Soul Poison. Constantly plagued by self-doubt, Hannah found this period to be a difficult one. Her devoted friend rescued her once again by arguing that music was indeed her "calling," and by pointing to the evidence of a growing catalogue of songs that had come to her fully formed, as if from out of the ether, seemingly with little or no effort exerted on her part. Citing an entry in the Encyclopedia of Mystical and Paranormal Experience, he implored Hannah to realize that the descriptive text within that hallowed tome mirrored her own creative episodes almost exactly. Thus convinced, and with a growing suspicion that she was unsuited to anything else, Hannah began to feel that perhaps she was indeed fated to this life. And so, she sought alternative methods of reaching the public with her music. The timing was felicitous. Relocating to Austin, Texas, had allowed Hannah to witness the wonder that is Daniel Johnston. Being a devout listener of his renowned home-recorded tapes, Hannah was now able to see Daniel perform his music at small, intimate venues, and was all the more inspired by this brilliant artist, who had long been one of her songwriting heroes and who epitomized the do-it-yourself ethic. Coinciding with this was the release of Lisa Germano's Geek the Girl, a glorious work which was reported to have been recorded by Lisa and friends on ADAT recording machines at her home. Technology and inspiration thus in place, Hannah set out to build her own recording studio. She purchased an eight-track sound recording machine, a small sound mixer and a microphone. This new equipment took up residence alongside a previously purchased digital piano in the small apartment which Hannah occupied at the time. With her periods of depression and hopelessness now often tempered by insufferable bouts of narcissism, Hannah got to work. During a few weeks in early 1998, she recorded her debut EP, Soul Poison, which was received most enthusiastically by the music press. Encouraged by the positive response, Hannah began recording her follow-up full-length CD, The Thing That Feels. Released in October of 2000, The Thing That Feels has received high critical praise and garnered Hannah's work a loyal and obsessive cult following. Nestled at the end of The Thing That Feels is "The Vampire Waltz," an eight-minute anti-lullaby of love, possession and the loss of innocence. It is the song that put Hannah on her path and changed her life from one of arbitrary misery to one full of meaning, metaphor and personal mythology. It is this song that Hannah believes came sweetly to her rescue and to determine if she was deserving of the music that was to follow.

Not like you

Giant-Size Man-Thing number four
You are Eleanor
Don't say a thing
For me or for him
Just pretend
You are our friend
Until the end

Don't speak, don't speak
Don't speak, don't support
Just quietly abhor me
The thing that feels
And is not like you

Don't speak, don't speak
Don't support
Just quietly abhor me
The thing that feels
And is not like you
I am not like

So what if you don't like me
And you don't care how I feel
So what if you can't see me
I know I am really here

So what if you don't believe in me
Do you really think I care
So what if you don't believe in me
I know I am really real
I know I am the real thing

Don't speak, don't speak
Don't support
Just quietly ignore me
The thing that feels
And is not like you
I am not like you
I am not like you

I am not like you
I am not like you

Love today

Rest assured
I remember every word
I remember all I heard

And that summer
All the joy went away
All that I had to say

For love of life
Don't say goodbye
For love of life
Don't say goodbye

So, at the window
Don't heed the call
Don't think we've lost it all
Just try to love today
Try to love today

Rest assured
I do think it's sad
And I do miss what we had
But I just try to love today
I try to love today
Try to love today
I try...

Meathook

Don't put your red dress on for him
Don't put your red dress on
Don't put your red dress on for him
Don't put your red dress on
Don't be afraid of the dark
Don't be afraid of the dark
Don't be afraid of the dark and what you are without him
Don't be afraid of the dark and what you are without him
No meathook is as bad as a hook in the heart
There's no pain that can make the non-feel feel at all
A hole through the skin will not make you whole
What is dominion over a faltering soul
and a heart that has severed from the body?
Is it anything to control someone that has been broken open?

Let it show

She said, "I've got no soul, I am not Nessarose
That is the way that life goes"
I said, "Just let it show, you are not Nessarose
Come on, grab your broom, let's go
Come on, grab your broom, let's blow away"
She said, "I've got no soul, I am not Nessarose
That is the way that life goes"
I said, "Just let it show that you're not Nessarose
Come on, grab your broom, let's go
Come on, grab your broom, let's blow"
I don't know where she ends and where I begin
The girl with green oily skin, she ends where I begin
I don't know where she ends and where I begin
The girl with green oily skin, she ends where I begin
Look at Dorothy in the sickly sweet undertow
Look at Dorothy, believing and leading them all down the Yellow Brick Road
She said, "I've got no soul"
I said, "You do, though"
She said, "I've got no soul, I am not Nessarose
That's just the way that life goes
That's just the way that life blows away"

I Can't Let You In

Fiyero, don't tell a soul what you've seen
This is the life that you and I are meant to lead
I can't let you in, 'cause the world is falling to pieces
I can't let you in, 'cause the world is falling to pieces
Fiyero, don't tell a soul a word we speak
I need to know, if I don't make it home, you won't look for me
I can't let you in, 'cause the world will tear us to pieces
I can't let you in, 'cause the world will tear us to pieces
Don't even let them hear you breathe
I'll never see you again, 'cause the world has torn you to pieces
And don't you dare deceive destiny
Her for you, but you for me
And don't you dare deceive destiny
Her for you, but you for me
Her for you, but you for me
For me

And Your Little Dog Too

Surrender, Dorothy
Bring me the shoes, dear
Bring them to me
Bring them here, dear
Bring them
If you know what's good for you
If you know what's good
If you know what's good for you
And your little dog, too
You'll bring them here
The shoes, dear
The shoes
Bring them to me
If you know what's good for you, dear
If you know what's just good
If you know what's good for you
And your little dog, too
You'll bring them here
Bring them here
Bring them here
Bring them to me

All is not well

Don't try to lie to me, I know
My love was politically disposed of
And I didn't see them coming
No, I didn't see them coming for you
For you
Don't try to lie to me, I know
Their crime will never be exposed
And if I had seen them coming
If I had seen them coming
What I wouldn't do for you
All is not well
All is not well
All is not well in the land of Oz
Don't try to lie to me, I know
My love was politically disposed of
And I did not see them coming
No, if I had seen them coming
I'd have chosen you
All is not well in the land of Oz

It Was Her House That Killed Nessarose

She might fool them but she don't fool me
She talks much too earnestly
And when Glinda gave her the shoes
I had nothing else to lose
And I asked her to take my hand
I asked her to please understand
They love her so 'cause she's so sticky sweet
But she just doesn't seem honest to me
And when Glinda asked me to choose
Well, I had nothing much else to lose
And I asked her to take my hand
I asked her who once was my friend, I thought, 'til the end
And I thought I had the secret to life
I don't, do I?
Do I?
And I thought that I had the secret to life
But I don't, do I?
I follow her down the Yellow Brick Road
Chasing her now, for revenge, I suppose
She causes destruction wherever she goes
It was her house that killed Nessarose
It was her house that killed Nessarose
That's just the way life goes

Sweet Heart

Solitude still holds you
I don't have to fake the blues
And all you want is refuge
Sugar is the heart's food
Sugar is the heart's food
Fathers don't know all the rules
Kicked around, I know you know the cruelty of love
And if you could have just one thing for your birthday, what would it be?
Maybe that one wrong word would not make you bad
And you could say just how you feel
And they would still want you around
And maybe that you could make mistakes
And that it would still be okay
And they would still want you around
Thoughts are often ridiculed
Feelings often misunderstood
And all you do is rescue one little piece of your heart
And feed it sugar
And it will grow
So powerful and strong
You won't know what to do with all the warmth
You won't even remember all the harm
And it will be so much easier to lead
The life you always wanted
The life you always should have had

Away

I heard he is missing in the river now
They say he is nowhere to be found
I hope she sang the sweetest lullaby
So that he was calm when he went down
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
I guess he is singing in the water now
Breathing in the purity of sound
I know she promised him a lilac crown
So that he was not afraid to drown
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
Put them all to shame
Blow them all away
Away...
Away...

The Vampire Waltz

The light in your eyes beckons to me
It beckons so quietly, but I hear it clearly
You start walking towards me
Taking my breath and fearlessly setting me free
Oh, I feel it being drawn out
The blood flowing steadily into your mouth
This dark night, cruel and cold
You whisper softly, "Honey, you'll never grow old"
Looking back at the crowd
Back at the party
I step outside and disappear swiftly
Oh, I feel it being drawn out
The pain of life fading, going down south
Lost in the wake of my wedding
And caught here at these old crossroads
I can never leave
I think I've been fooled
Why am I not dressed in white?
With eyes full of glory and wine
I'll be your eternal bride
I'll be here forever
Here, on this night
Why am I not dressed in white?
I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
You carry me over the crossroads
And I'm lost on this cold, dark night
Why am I not dressed in white?
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams
The light in your eyes is still calling to me
Taking my whole world and setting it spinning
Knowing my weakness, the spark lies in the sand
Taking my hand, you lead me into the dance
Oh, I feel it being drawn out
My soul is rushing right into your mouth
How could you take me away from the party?
I think I've been fooled
How could you take me away from the party?
I think I've been fooled
I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams
I need you near me
I think I've been fooled
I carry a mandrake in my bouquet
And I shiver when it screams
With eyes full of lust and light
I'll be your eternal bride
I'll be here forever
Here, on this night
Oh, why am I not dressed in white?
Something is not right
Will the light spark?

Through The Gash

Defenestration

Oh you want to walk straight down the line
I just sashey from side to side
Coming at you from behind
Coming at you, all scissors and knives
All shadows and lies

You want to walk straight down the line
I just sway from side to side
Coming at you like some tattered corpse bride
Coming at you, so stand aside
I'm coming through, if you don't mind

I do remember the room underneath the bell
We held hands in the stairwell
Hummingbirds followed me at school
At least that's what you said
And I was never the same
That's when everything changed

So now I see him standing
There at the window
Oh, he's so sweet
I want to love him
I want it so
But when I reach for him
Out he goes

I see him standing there at the window
I come up behind him, all hustle and flow
I rustle the dust around him
And out he goes
Out you go

I could say I'm surprised but it wouldn't be true
'Cause it happened last time to the one before you
So step away from the gash
I'm coming through

No Man Alive

All that matters is love…
There's no man alive that has what I need
So give me a man that I can breathe
There's no man alive that has what I want
So give me a man that I can haunt

Give me a static-free cellular line
So I can call him all of the time
Give me a shimmering astral cord
So I can be there when he's with his whore

I feel it come again
The feeling that I love
And when the ride comes to an end,
Just get up, dust off, and do it again

I feel it come again
The feeling that I love
And that I know will end

There's no man alive that I can't deceive
So give me a man who's crueller than me
There's no man alive that I can't destroy
So give me a man who'll be first to deploy

Give me a static-free cellular line
So I can connect to him all of the time
Give me a sparkling astral cord
So I can be there when he is no more

Don't Be Scared

Don't be scared to decode
I know it seems
Sometimes there is no hope

Don't be scared
You're not alone
Don't be scared
Please just don't be scared
Don't be scared

Don't be sad
It will be all right
This too shall pass
Just get through one more night

Don't be sad
Give us a smile
Don't be sad
Just try a while
Don't be sad
It'll be all right
Don't be sad
Just get through one more night

Don't be sad
Don't be scared to feel afraid
Nightshade and bile, I am erased
The words you say
will keep you safe
And it's all the hurt
that will be erased
So don't be scared
Don't be scared
Don't be scared
And don't be sad

Carnival Justice (The Gloves Are Off) Part II

Step right up and get what you deserve
Oh, what a prize
Yeah, it's her
And if you think you scored
Your vision must be blurred
Welcome, one and all, to the Theatre of the Absurd

My heart is like the Moulin Rouge
All lit up in subterfuge
But pain is something I can use
But what about you
What's your excuse

You won't know I'm coming
Until it's too late
You won't know that I'm around

The only thing that you will hear
Is scarlet satin hitting the ground
The gloves are off
Too bad you got soft
The gloves are off
Too bad you're so lost

Je suis en coeur
Je disparais
You are a blur
As I walk away
So you love her
That little stain

I'm out of here
But my words remain

So step right up and take a drag
On your cigarette
You're just something that got snagged
On the hook of Antoinette

And you can call it Carnival Justice
It's just my own breed of armistice
You can say I'm crazy like Alice
But I'll never blow you a real kiss
The gloves are off

And you can call it Carnival Justice
It's just my own breed of armistice
You can say I'm crazy like Alice
But I'll never blow you a real kiss
The gloves are off

You Don't leave a Trace

You crawl away and don't leave any trace
I don't like your dirt house that much anyway
Don't you dare waste any more of my time
If you don't even like me, quit coming around

You crawl away and don't leave any trace
Yeah, it is true, you would not be the same
If you can't love me, I guess we are through
I never even showed you what I'd do to you

'Cause you run like hell
Run like hell
Run like hell from me

You crawl away and you don't leave a trace
It could be real or it could be fake
The details don't matter to me anyway
I don't really care if you go or you stay

Just don't run like hell
Run like hell
You would be dumb as hell to run from me

You crawl away and you don't leave a trace
Wipe that damned panicked look off of your face
I never even liked you that much anyway
But if you're not with someone, it's such a shame

I know that you're sort of scared of me
Let me be your wet nightmare, let me
I know that you're sort of scared of me
Let me be your wet nightmare, let me
I know that you're sort of scared
I know that you're sort of scared of me
I know I can never be
I know I can never be your dream
So let me
Let me
Let me be

Where the Wounds Are

Pick up the stitches
Pick up the stitches
Be strong
Pick up the stitches
It's all right
Just pick up the stitches
It's all right
You're not mine
It's all right
I am fine
Just left with scars
To remind me where the wounds are
To remind me where the wounds are

Thread the light through the flesh
And push the needle past the rest
Through the bone, into the heart
Where madness ends and music starts

Listen
Don't worry
It won't be long
Just weave all your sadness into a song
And I know you will
I know you will
I know you will
Because I know you
I'm all right
You're not mine
I'm all right
I'll be fine
Just left with scars
To remind me where the wounds are
To remind me where the wounds are

Lace the ribbon up your back
And stitch the future to the past
When demons become friends at last
Hold them tight and heal the gash

Listen
Don't worry
It won't be long
Just spin all your nightmares into a song
I know you will
I know you will
Because I know you
Because I know you
Because I know you
It's all right
You'll survive
It's all right
You'll be fine
Just left with scars
To remind you where the wounds are
To remind you to…

Sew every glimmer you get to your skin
And let every sound you hear come crashing in
Knit your fragile veins to the wrists of your friends
And know that you will see them again

Sew every shimmer you get to your skin
And let every whisper come rushing back in
And pick up the stitches and start to mend
Love pierces through even death in the end
Love will pierce through even death in the end
Believe that you will see them again
(The spider knows)
You will

You Had Me

I am desire but you are weak
And I despise the sound of leaks
In veins to quiet to even speak
Just bleed despair but never scream

I am revenge and disbelief
And I regret the tracks I leave
In snow that isn't even deep
I hold the blade, sharp as can be

You had me going out of my head
With all the things that you said
You had me going out of my head
But now I walk away from you instead

I am on fire but you retreat
With arteries so tense they shriek
Anaemic secrets that won't keep
A heart that numb must choose deceit

I am mayhem and treachery
And dead-ends never bothered me
Your hollow voice shouts, “Victory!”
But whispers, restless, when you sleep

“She had me going out of my head”
I did descend but now I'm free
And I confess you still seem sweet
But you no longer disarm me

You had me going out of my head
With all the things that you said
You had me going out of my head
But now I walk away from you instead

Beware the Touch

To have, to hold
Is something you
Have feared to know but always know
Maybe it isn't even true
Maybe love cannot
Maybe love cannot shelter you

The furies are a triple threat
The worst to come has not come yet
If love is something you can just reject
Beware the touch they won't forget
Beware the touch of Antoinette

Still through the gash you'll reach to pull
The bones of someone beautiful
His veins stretched tight over his skull
The lullaby will become a lull
The lullaby will become a lull

It begins again
The feeling that I love and know will end
It begins again
The feeling that I love and know will end

I'll sing you fast asleep, my love
And all the dreams that you dream of
Will soothe you like a velvet glove
Wrapped around your heart, guarding your blood
Wrapped around your heart, guarding your blood

And when you wake, you won't recall
How light surrenders to the dark
So the next time that you start to fall
You'll swear he's the greatest love of all
And he will redeem the queen of hearts

Girls That Glitter Love the Dark

Girls that glitter love the dark
We lace it through our bitter, black little hearts
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've love to love have seeped
Into our poisoned blood

Girls that glitter deceive death
We thread ourselves through innocent flesh
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've love to waste
They seem to be erased

Knit it through, thread it
Sew it to unsuspecting flesh
They won't regret it
Or so you say

Girls that glitter desecrate a kiss
We break the code of happiness
And then we feign surprise when we see
That those we've loved have loved to leave

Girls that glitter defile hope
We think that life is just
Tightening that sad little rope
And then we open our eyes and we see
Through the gash
Of a fluttering eyelash

We see love trying desperately to flee
But you don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear
You don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear

Knit it through
Capture it and stitch it to
Your brittle little heart
At least that way

Love can't tear it apart
Knit it through
Sew it to
They won't regret you
And if they do

But the thing that girls know best
Is that glitter covers all the ugliness
And they know one thing above the rest
Sparkle covers evilness
Shimmer covers all the mess
Glitter covers darkness
And then come the moment
When the warm of bees drowned

Status

Oh, c'est tout
I curse the day that I laid eyes on you
You thirsty, dirty, stupid root
Status: Over, we are through

Oh, c'est tout
The needle like a thorn removed
Slipped out from this aching bruise
Status: Weapon is defused

Oh, c'est tout
Broken girls, when rag-doll used
Can't be expected to be true
Status: Villain has been subdued.

You beg for mercy, but I refuse
Step off
You have been excused

Vous n'avez pas un coeur
Solipsistic saboteur
You are twisted and unsure
You see her lipstick and pearls
And want to devour her

But now she's tearing up your insides
All claws and fur
Get up!
Give us a smile
Get up!
Get out of this
At least for a while
Get up!

Oh, c'est tout
Tortured dolls will become cruel
Porcelain repaired with glue
Can't hush the shrieking of a wound
So deep it's feral through and through
Status: I am done with you

The Apple

So blame me
But you didn't see me do it
Poor baby, please
Trouble has always grown on trees
So blame me
But you didn't see me do it
Poor baby, please
Trouble has always grown on trees
And I don't care what you say to me
Ha!
I don't even like blue eyes
They're usually too light
I don't even like things that are so bright
I can't stand the glare
So take this if you dare
Then you can belong to me
And you can be wrong for me
So blame me
But you didn't see me do it
Poor baby, please
Trouble has always grown on trees
I don't care what you say
You're just being fake
I'm telling the truth
Like I do always
You'd do it too, if you were brave
The sweetest things are often laced
And you can be wrong for me
Mirror, mirror on the wall
If I can't have one, I'll take them all
I'll take Gael Garcia Bernal
I'll take a man that I can haunt
And who can be wrong for me
Who will be all wrong for me

Carousel

I would have loved to see you grown old, friend
I would have loved to know you 'till the end
I would have loved to see you smile again
I would have loved to watch you turn grey
I would have loved to have just one more day
But all I know is that you've gone away
But I swear that I can hear you say…
Don't worry, don't be sad
Think of the time we had
There is no future or past
And life is not meant to last
Life is crucial surgery
A shard of glass pulled from a heart that bleeds
And sometimes like a barroom fight
So keep throwing punches 'till you get it right
Life is like a carousel
It'll make you dizzy
It will spin like hell
Life is a clear blue stream
It's everything you mean
Yet nothing but a dream
Where things are not quite like they seem
And when you get it, that's when
You'll see me again
When you get it, that's when
You'll see me again

Never Look Back

You can have the brightest star
I'm a girl who wishes on scars
You must know that love can fade
Don't look back during the parade
So I love like they do under the sea
And I pull him much too close to me
Yes, I know that love can fade
Bit I never look back during the parade
You can have the light of the moon
I prefer to exit through wounds
You must know that life will fade
Don't look back during the parade
So I live like they do under the sea
And I pull him even closer to me
Yes, I know that life will fade
So I never look back during the parade
No, I never look back during the parade

A Latch to Open

( Subterfuge EP )

You come upon a bird in a pretty cage
You feel all its sadness, all its rage
A latch to open doors with moving parts
You hold the key but you just walk away
And life is much harder than you thought
Love can't be tamed and it can't be caught
And still it sings a song for your heart
You decide you want its wings, so you cut them off
And still it sings a song for your blackened heart
You decide you want its wings, so you cut them off
And life is so much harder than you thought
Life is so much harder than you thought
Oh, love, don't go away
Oh, love, don't go away
Oh, love, stay in your cage
Please stay in your cage
Stay
You come upon a bird in a pretty cage
This time you will help it to escape
A latch to open doors with moving parts
You turn the key and watch it slip away
And then it sings a song for your secret heart
You still want its wings, but you let it fly off
And life is so much sweeter than you thought
Life is so much sweeter than you thought

Angels & Absinthe

(Meathook EP)

Hush, hush, don't wake up, it's not morning
Hush, hush, sleep through this, I am warning
Why are you crying? It's not a sad movie
Why are you crying, dear? There is nothing sad here
There is nothing sad, is there?
Angels fall in to save my soul
Sorry, Absinthe, you're much too slow
All that glitters and all that glows
Will find a way in as soon as I go
Hush, hush, I dreamed I was happy
Hush, hush, you were happy with me
Hush, hush, feel the chill and it is real
Hush, hush, but at least you can still feel
Why are you crying? It's not a sad movie
Why are you crying, dear? There is nothing sad here
If you want wings, just tell them so
These are the things that make us grow cold
Break the code and then just go
Love is something you seek and destroy
Then ask, "Why are you crying?"

Carnival Justice Part II

( Subterfuge EP )

Step right up and get what you deserve
Oh, what a prize!
Yeah, it's her
And if you think you scored your vision must be blurred
Welcome one and all to the Theater of the Absurd
Mmmmmy heart is like the Moulin Rouge
All lit up in subterfuge
But pain is something I can use
But what about you
What's your excuse
You won't know I'm coming until it's too late
You won't know that I'm around
The only thing that you will hear is scarlet satin hitting the ground
The gloves are off
Too bad you got soft
The gloves are off
Too bad you're so lost
Je suis en coeur
Je disparais
You are a blur as I walk away
So you love her
That little stain
I'm out of here, but my words remain
So step right up and take a drag on your cigarette
You're just something that got snagged on the hook of Antoinette
And you can call it Carnival Justice
It's just my own breed of armistice
You can say I'm crazy like Alice
You can call it Carnival Justice
It's just my own breed of armistice
You can say I'm crazy like Alice
But I'll never blow you a real kiss
The gloves are off

Eat the dirt

(Soul Poison EP)

Curl up under the window
and crouch against the wall
I feel the nighttime about to fall
And I don't know what to do with myself
So I eat the dirt and I pray for...
And I know I am all wrong
I know it is all wrong
But I don't know what to do with myself
So I drink the blood and I pray for...
Run from these hands if you know what's good for you
I can't control the things I do
And I don't know how to cure myself
So I eat the dirt and I pray for help
I eat the dirt and I pray for help
I eat the dirt and I pray for...

Girls that glitter love the dark

( Subterfuge EP )

Girls that glitter love the dark
We lace it through our bitter, black little hearts
And then we feign surprise when we see
that those we've loved to love have seeped
into our poisoned blood
Girls that glitter deceive death
We thread ourselves through innocent flesh
And then we feign surprise when we see
that those we've loved to waste they seem to be erased
Knit it through, thread it, sew it to unsuspecting flesh
They won't regret it, or so they say
And those you have loved have snagged on your thorny veins
But they don't regret it, or so you say
Girls that glitter desecrate a kiss
We break the code of happiness
And then we feign surprise when we see
that those we've loved have loved to leave
Girls that glitter defile hope
We think that love is just tightening that sad little rope
And then we open our eyes and we see through the gash
of a fluttering eyelash
We see love trying desperately to flee
But you don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear
You don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear
Knit it through, capture it and stitch it to your brittle little heart
At least that way love can't tear it apart
Knit it through, sew it to unsuspecting flesh
They won't regret you
And if they do
But the thing that girls know best
is that glitter covers all the ugliness
And they know one thing above all the rest:
Sparkle covers evilness
Shimmer covers all the mess
Glitter covers darkness
And then came the moment when the swarm of bees drowned

Idaho

(Soul Poison EP)

What if the sky in Idaho is black and dark?
What if the sun in Idaho doesn't set at all?
And what if I loved you with all of my heart?
And what if my love wasn't good enough?
What if the sky in Idaho is filled with clouds?
What if the sun in Idaho has burned out?
There'd be miles and miles behind us
We'd look back at the miles and miles we'd come
Don't tell me all those miles were for nothing
Don't tell me all of those miles were for nothing
What if the sky in Idaho is black and dark?
What if the sun in Idaho doesn't set at all?
And what if I loved you with all of my heart?
And what if my love wasn't good enough?
There'd be miles and miles behind us
We'd look back at the miles and miles we'd come
Don't tell me all those miles were for nothing
Don't tell me all of those miles were for nothing
With your arms around me, I think I can do this
With your help, I think that I can do this
Help me do this
Help me help you do this
Tell me all those miles were for something

Je t'aime

( Subterfuge EP )

So you think you want that little girl, do you
I'll string her up and I'll bring her to you
You think I don't know what love is
But you've just never known love like this
Je t'aime
I do know love
Je t'aime
I do know you
But you, you think you want that pretty girl, don't you
I could befriend her and talk to her for you
You think you just want that perfect girl, don't you
I could be so much better for you
Je t'aime
I do know love
Je t'aime
I do know you
I do know you
Mirror, mirror on the wall
You don't want to mess around with me at all
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Let me in and I'll break you into shards
I'll break you, just you wait, you
Je t'aime

My next victim

( Subterfuge EP )

I was numb, I was frozen
Then I saw you and my blood started flowing
I was tired and heartbroken
Then I saw you and I shattered open
But you don't want none of my sugar
You just want that skanky snatch, no offense to her
You don't want none of my sugar
You just want that little slit, nothing against her
But you are my next victim
My next requiem
My next anti-numb
You will become my next victim

Never come down again

(I Can't Let You In EP)

I fly
And I will never come down again
Not on your life
You may call me an automanienne
But I will continue to fight
I will continue my lonely flight
For the rest of my life
For you

Scars

(Soul Poison EP)

"Scars" is based on the traditional English-American folk ballad "Scarborough Fair."

Please don't go to Scarborough Fair
Violets, roses, thistles and vines
Remember me, I am still here
He was not a true love of mine
He was not a true love of mine
He was not a true love of mine
Please don't go to Scarborough Fair
Honey, poison, oakwood and wine
Don't forget me, I still care
He was not a true love of mine
Follow me to Scarborough Fair
Clovers, lilacs, jokers and thieves
Remember me, I do not need
He was not a true love of mine
He was not a true love of mine
Please don't go
Please don't go
Follow me
Follow me
Twist it and turn it around
Kick dust upon it 'til it eats the ground
Love is something to break down
Make it scream 'til you get sick of the sound
Make it scream 'til you get sick of the sound
Make it scream 'til you get sick of
I'm so sick of the sound

Someone speaks softly

(I Can't Let You In EP)

Bury the switchblade a foot deep in snow
Silence is golden
She loved him, you know
Fold up his good shirts and dust off his robe
The violence is over, they told her so
Is it over? Is it over, I said, is it over? Is it?
Her mind tears asunder the heartstrings below
Years go by, still she cannot break the code
The trauma has severed the flesh from the bone
Guilt weighs so heavily on her soul
Is it over? Is it over, I said, is it over? Is it?
Veins stretched tight over a heart blue and cold
Silence is made of gold
Hurt is to have and to hold
This is what she has been told
Is it over? Is it over, I said, is it over? Is it?
Someone speaks softly through the horror and pain:
"Love has gone, but it could come again."
Spring arrives quietly, warming her skin
Her heart, now red, is beating again
Oh, it's over

The last piece of cake

(Soul Poison EP)

She wasn't expecting anyone to hurt her
Least of all her daughter
She had always been a good mother
But her feet slipped in the mud
She took a walk with her daughter
And her feet slipped in the mud
She looked up at her betrayer
Running quickly through the trees
Please don't leave me here in the dirt
Please help me up
Reach to me your hand
Please help me up
She wasn't expecting anyone to hurt her
Then her feet slipped in the mud
Please don't leave me here in the dirt
Reach to me your hand
Help me clean these dirty wings
I am so terribly hurt
This makes me want to believe in heaven
And angels
For mothers
And hunchbacks
And wolves
Please let me believe that she's happy
And safe
And warm
And smiling
Eating apples and the last piece of cake

The Metro

(Meathook EP / Berlin Cover)

I'm alone
Sitting with my empty glass
My four walls
Follow me through my past
I was on a paris train
I emerged in london rain
And you were waiting there
Swimming through apologies

I remember searching for the perfect words
I was hoping you might change your mind
I remember a soldier sleeping next to me
Riding on the metro

You wore white
Smiling as you took my hand
So removed
We spoke of wintertime in france
Minutes passed with shallow words
Years have passed and still the hurt
I can see you now
Smiling as you pulled away

I remember the letter wrinkled in my hand
"i'll love you always" filled my eyes
I remember a night we walked along the seine
Riding on the metro

I remember a feeling coming over me
The soldier turned, then looked away
I remember hating you for loving me
Riding on the metro

The Necklace of Marie Antoinette

(Soul Poison EP)

I'll make it look like an accident
I'll make it look like he was trying to hurt me
I'll make it seem like I was innocent
I'll make him wish he had never met me
I'll make it look like a suicide
I'll make it look like it was meant to be
I'll make it seem like I was innocent
I'll make the strychnine taste like raspberry tea
I fear for your soul (as you sow, you shall reap)
I know me, I'm so low (as you sow, you shall reap)
I spread the soul poison quietly
I make him think that he wanted it from me
I make it seem like I'm innocent
This disease will feel like solidarity
I know me

The Winner Takes It All

(Meathook EP/ Abba Cover)

I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That's her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I'd be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It's simple and it's plain
Why should I complain.

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all...

True Love Will Find You In The End

(Meathook EP / Daniel Johnston Cover)

True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don't be sad, I know you will,
But dont give up until
True love will find you in the end
This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you
'Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
Unless you step out into the light?
Don't be sad i know you will
But don't give up until
True love finds you in the end.

You Showed Me

(Subterfuge EP / The Byrds Cover)

You showed me how to do exactly what to do
How I fell in love with you
Oh oh oh it's true
Oh oh I love you

You showed how to say exactly what to say
In that very special way
Oh oh oh it's true
You fell for me too

And when I tried it
I could see you fall
And I've decided
It's not a trick at all

You taught it to me too exactly what you do
And now you love me too
Oh oh oh it's true
We're in love we two

And when I tried it
I could see you fall
And I've decided
It's not a trick at all

You taught it to me too exactly what you do
And now you love me too
Oh oh it's true
We're in love we too
