Track Name: Babcia
Nobody knows
just where they go, just where they go (x2)
In her cold yellow hands
In the Church’s spire
She is lost, she is lost
In the tree’s silent song
As the ashes scatter
He is gone, he is gone.

Nobody knows
just where they go, just where they go
Everyone dreams
but no-one sees just where they go
In her cold yellow hands
In the Church’s spire
She is lost, she is lost
In the tree’s silent song
As the ashes scatter
He is gone, he is gone.

Dim the face’s fire
For the loud world’s end (x2)
Track Name: He Sailed Forth
He sailed forth
Into her skin
Recklessly
The night grows dim
The fields he wrote
In singing throat
To grab her heart
Have all but choked
Invisible, the stars cry out loud
To reach her face
Their brightness lost through her disgrace
The listless waves
Bereaving now
Her limbs made numb by him

She sweated music from every pore
And the four corners of the room bent backwards and begged for more
She sweated music from every pore
And the four corners of the room bent backwards and begged for more
She sweated music from every pore
And the four corners of the world bent backwards in writhing awe
She sweated music from every pore
And the four corners of the world bent backwards in writhing awe
Track Name: Innocence
Feel the rain, to heal this pain, you never were complete
Wet your face, your bloodied lace dress fallen at your feet.

Innocence
Was lost tonight
This fragile girl, she runs wild
She’s quenched her first magnetic thirst
She’s scared, she’s stunned
This fragile girl’s undone

No man will do
No man but you
No man ever spoke the truth
None as true as you

There he stands
Hypnotic man
The world a blazing carnival, is bursting out of him
His smiles performed
In cryptic rhyme
She’s bright, she’s proud
Enchanted now
No longer hides from him
Oh she sings, she flies, she plays, she wins,
She loves she lives
Made powerful by him

No man will do
No man but you
No man ever spoke the truth
None as true as you

No man, ever spoke
The truth, the truth,
No man ever spoke the truth, the truth, the truth...
Track Name: First Breath
Swallow the valleys that followed you here
Deep from the dark iron ore in the year of all births
In the tear of her spiralling girth,
in that manifold space where wet love trodden soil marked your skin,
with a trace of that burn
where the ore melted first
in the hearts of the lovers who burst
There you are, spun out zestuous ode to the stars!
There you are wasting breath counting scars (x2)

There you are spun out zestuous ode to the stars (x3)
There you are wasting breath counting scars.

There you are! There you are
There you are, there you are...

Retrace the scars upon your arms, undress your sparkling carbon mask, even your charms disgrace the stars.
