Track Name: My Beloved
My Beloved

How do I? Get rid
Of the Demon
You walked
Oh you walked, around and around in my heart
I don’t want to love another
You and I are forever tethered
Oh so thin, we walk this line
And down below is the deepest, darkest, lie….

Oh my love he walks in line
My beloved, every time
My beloved, every time
My beloved, you’re out of line
Oh my love is hard as nails
My love died upon the rail
My love died upon the rail
My love died, on beds of nails
You and I are forever tethered
You and I are forever weathered
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will awake
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will take

You are, the master
You are, the master
You aren’t not, some sadist master
You are the master

You and I are forever tethered
You and I are forever weathered
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will awake
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will take
Track Name: Faster Than the Devil (featuring Marissa Nadler)
Faster than the Devil
Faster than the devil oh oh oh
Faster than my rights
Faster than the devil oh oh oh
Faster than my life
Oh oh oh
Jonathan you ride
Oh how you ride
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

There’s a crack in the wall and an eye
The Tell-Tale Heart and I
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

Faster than the devil
On horseback you ride
On the back of the devil for you’ve taken your own life

Oh Oh Oh
Jonathan you ride
Oh how you ride
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

There’s a crack in the wall and an eye
The Tell-Tale Heart and I
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life
Track Name: Keeley
Keeley

Keeley put your white dress on
And you’ll become the maiden of the dawn
With your vial of poison you run
A substitute for what was called love

Cause oh, oh we got a slash of devil’s tongue
And it’s displayed across our palms
Where do we belong?
And the moon, gazes on us with empty eyes
Trailing the heal of demise
And we slip in to Edentide
And our isolation is here at even’s fall
With Bella Donnas lacing up the wall
It’s just poison that’s all

Oh Keeley come back from the pine
Before we slip in to Edentide
You never did anybody wrong
And you’ll always be my maiden of the dawn

Cause oh, oh we got a slash of devil’s tongue
And it’s displayed across our palms
Where do we belong?
And the moon, gazes on us with empty eyes
Trailing the heal of demise
And we slip in to Edentide
And our isolation is here at even’s fall
With Bella Donnas lacing up the wall
It’s just poison that’s all
Track Name: Thoroughbred
Thoroughbred
Your assault
Has been told
Even your breath, takes a toll

Thoroughbred
Thoroughbred
Blood stained red
And I hold you like the dead

I’ve seen you, through and through
You wear me, just like a noose

Thoroughbred
Eyes beat red
If charged you’re better off dead

I’ve seen you
Through and through
You hold me
Just like a jewel
Hold me, Hold me

Thoroughbred
Taken from the ledge
A horse’s head
Is lyin’ in your bed

Hold me, Hold me
We’re softer than the light
Yet cold and dark as night

A farmer and a gun
You’re your father’s golden son
A horse is in your lungs
And this war it ain’t never won
Track Name: Wake
Wake

Slaughter me, oh slaughter you
Divinity is upon you
I take your hand, and I walk you out
I leave you now, to the frozen south

And I lay frozen on the lawn
I lay frozen here ‘til dawn

My marble eyes
My heart of stone
Is housed in a bereft unknown
I take your hand and I walk you out
Leave you now, to the frozen south

And if you knew me you would wait
For, unto the day
Oh the day, oh the day, oh the day, oh the day
When I wake

Oh your dreaded, poisoned past
So you left him for one last glass
You point the pistol and he points it back
Though you love him you’ll never fight back

Southern doll, on the mantle
Silent scream, from behind the wall
I take your hand, and I walk you out
I leave you now, to the frozen south

Love has lead me to this song
As I lay here on the lawn
Now you’re gone, oh you’re gone, oh your’e gone
Oh you’re gone
How I’ve done wrong
Track Name: Dandelion Daze (featuring Marissa Nadler)
Dandelion Daze

I left a wish for you on the lawn
I hope that you can love again
I know that things are wrong
And it’s hit you like the weight of lead

All these guns have left me
All these guns have left me here
All my hate is breached
For the coming of a brand new year

Dandelion Daze
I left a wish for you on my grave
Would you march upon
The river where my love slipped away

All these guns have left me
All these guns have left me here
All my hate is breached
For the coming of a brand new year
Track Name: Holiday Song
Holiday Song

You, said your life was empty
Oh but these arms are here for eternity
And your family, full of dread
Lay poisoned, in their beds
It’s not your fault, it’s just the way you were bred

Oh all these lies beneath the cross
Oh, stab your eyes out
It’s sight you lost
And the sickened, and unwed
With their cats and candles around their beds
If you’re alone, it’s o.k. if that’s how it ends

Can you take me, down to the water
Can you lead me, straight under
Oh your eyes, cold and serene
In this watery dream

And your family, full of dread
Lay poisoned, in their beds
It’s not your fault, it’s just the way you were bred
Track Name: The Roses
The Roses

The oaks and the vines, and the branches entwine
Around my heart
And a melancholy winding led to my depart
And it was clear, that you were not here
For the roses
And you stood watch, over a man-made lake
You ain’t no saint, of the roses

And you wore, paper thin sleeves
In this mire, of thorns
And with ill fate, we lay beneath
Oh that white cross, bearing this loss
And with ill fate, we lay beneath, oh that white cross
Bearing this loss
And I shall, continue to make, bouquets of roses from this fate

And so I shall continue to make, bouquets of roses
From this fate
Track Name: The Wolves
The Wolves

When you were thrown, to the wolves
I tried to save you, but my heart was in repose
And please take with you, this piece of fragile gold
For my jewels they lay here on the altar
Safely hidden from your rapture

When they drove the stake into you
I saw your body it was hollow through and through
And I don’t need faith to know that I can still see you

For I died with you in this rapture
Our bodies slain here on the altar

When you were small, they wrote lines on the wall, that said you’re nothing at all

And the capture, of your dreams, and the rapture and the scream, and your body’s still next to me.

When you died, everyone knew your name
Your body and face carved out in a deliberate frame
And we all surrendered to this deep impending shame
For we died with you in this rapture, our bodies slain here on the altar

When you were small, they wrote lines on the wall,
That said you’re nothing at all
And the capture, of your dream, and the rapture, and the scream, and your body’s still next to me
Track Name: Silence / Slain
Silence/Slain

Air tight, is your cage
Hungry, for days
My lovely one
My lovely one

Silence, of the slain
You call out, but it’s all in vain
My lovely one
My lovely one

And the blithe, and the bain
And you rise like a siren that’s been slain
For you’re still hungry
For this roughened gaze
But I am like the dawn light in your way

Oh tell, tell the truth
Was this book, written for you?
My lovely one
My lovely one

Oh and the cry, and the pain
And you rise like bird, caged
And you’re still hungry for this roughened gaze
But I am like the dawn light in your way

Follow me, follow me, in the mirror, it’s not me
Follow me, follow me, in the mirror, it’s not me
Follow me, follow me, in the mirror, it’s not me
Track Name: Here It Lies
Here it Lies

Here it lies a pile of sand
Watch it run out of my hands
Oh across the desert land
This gun it fell out of my hands

So you take the mortal bone
Place it down beneath the throne
Thinking of the king and I
This is not where power lies

All along the road is dim
I found someone to take you in
And though your heart is made of pure sin

Oh the art of dying, oh the eagle flies round
With your heart in its talon
You left your misery on the ground

Here it lies a pile of sand
Watch it run out of my hands
Oh across the desert land
This gun it fell out of my hands

So you take the mortal bone
Place it down beneath the throne
Thinking of the king and I
This is not where power lies
