The Girl with the Raven Mask tracks

Lyrics


1. GIRL WITH THE RAVEN MASK

I spy with my eye, a little girl going to the market
In her hand a yellow basket, on her head a giant mask yeah

Oh girl with the raven mask
Where do you have your home?
Oh girl with the raven mask
Do you live there all alone?
What can it be?
That you don't want us to see
Was this your idea?
Oh girl with the raven mask
Your secret's safe with me!

I see you walk the pavement, someone's child, a little witch
Do you live in a basement, or in the house upon that hill?

I saw you once before, all alone out on the moor
You were pointing to the clouds, you laughed and laughed, and danced for hours
A little happy girl, in a big black mask, against the world
Where are you coming from, where are you going, can I come?

Oh girl with the raven mask
What lies behind your disguise?
Oh girl with the raven mask
Who hides there inside?
Where have you been?
You look like a dream, what have you seen?
Oh girl with the bird mask
Are you the raven queen?
Who's under the paper sleeve?
What are you hiding from me?




2. THE JANUARY SEA

Gray gray, so old
Dark, dark, so cold
The day is coming and I'm alone
Warm warm, my chest is warm
Calm cal, my dear so calm
You will never be afraid again

Weep weep, always
Keep keep, always
And we go down into the black

When the seven sunken Sirens call,
The winter's just begun
When the seven sunken Sirens call,
They will take you with open arms
The January sea will roll,
Black like sin and blood
And at sunrise you will meet the waves, given to the sea

We're all downing in the January sea
Some in their dream homes, and some somewhere at sea
We're all drifting in the January sea
Gasping for air
And finding it hard to breathe

We're shining like diamonds in the dark

Light light slippin'
Night night drippin'
I'm like a boat swallowed by the sea
Shine shine shine you
Sink sink slowly
Into the nothing
Into the dream




3. PEARLS AND COFFINS

Ooh, child of moon
Child of light
So you sold your soul
In the dead of night?
Headlong into mystery
Love , war and greed
In the grand bazaar,
In the garden of the queen
Oh, what a wonderful scheme

Oh you gave me pearls and coffins
In your usual soulless fashion
I was looking for heart and passion
But all you gave to me
Was pearls and coffins

Bridge across the valley
Arrows from the sun
You crossed me in the gully
In the mist of Avalon
Poison filled the air
The battle had begun
Machineguns blazing on,
But strange, there was no sound
Oh, and you left me for dead

Oh you gave me pearls and coffins
In your usual soulless fashion
I was looking for heart and passion
But all you gave to me
Was pearls and coffins




4. HYPNOTIZED

I wake up in my bed
Morning has come
I greet the rising sun
I wonder what I've done
So weary from the night
Bereaved of my sleep
Scratched my fingertips
Blood on my lips

Two evil eyes, my mind is captured
I'm hypnotized again
Oh I don't know what you're after
Hypnotized again
I'm floating away into illusion
Hypnotized again
I just wanna sleep, instead confusion
Hypnotized again

I wake up screaming now
In tears and despair
Is this present time
Did I just die
I don't know who I am
What's happening to me?
Did I open up your crate?
Did we waltz around you grave...?

My bones are very tired
I try to stay awake
But someone's watching me
Wait for me to sleep
My head is dazed and gone
My body can't resist
Mesmerized I'll be
But I smile and I feel free

I wander about from night to morning
Hypnotized again
Thrown to the dark without a warning
Hypnotized again
Into the land beyond the conscious
Hypnotized again
There's love after death as you promised
Hypnotized again




5. GHOSTLIGHT

When the northern winds blow
Outside your frozen window
Ghosts of man and widow
Leave no footprints in snow

Bless the hold, count the hours
Ring of dead souls, sell no flowers
No sympathy for dog or mouse
9 white phantoms around your house

Ghostlight... Lock your door, frost is coming
Ghostlight... All is quite when death is howling
Ghostlight... Hidde inside, darkness growing
Ghostlight... Winter falls and the sky is glowing

Wolfs are near, snow will fall
Hear them scratching on your wall
When evil comes, will evil win?
Oh never let the darkness in

Ghostlight... Lock your door, frost is coming
Ghostlight... All is quite when death is howling
Ghostlight... Hide inside, darkness growing
Ghostlight... Winter falls and the sky is glowing




6. RUN KILLER RUN

You see the death of the day
In the shine from the lake
The night is waiting in fear
As Bob is awake
Cold as ice like a stone
A wizard at work
And no one will ever know
The gleam of your thoughts

All the fine things, all the gold
The silver linings, in all the world... No save

A small hint of a smile
Eye switching to black
He dresses up in style
The killer is back
You can't get the feeling of dread
Out of your head
Neon lights still twinkle after you're dead

All the fine things, all the gold
The silver linings, in all the world... No save

Fell from the sun
Walk the streets at night
You can't hide from your shadow
Run killer run

The man is old and so grey
In his penthouse abode
A killer on the loose
Wants his sad story told
In the sunset of life he's off the hook
Bob, it's time to pay for the lives that you took

All the fine things, all the gold
The silver linings, in all the world... No save

Fell from the sun
Walk the streets at night
You can't hide from your shadow
Run killer run

There's no escape
From the smoke of your gun
Run killer run

The camera is on




7. IRON MULE

Send away your prayers
Hammer down the nails
Do the same tomorrow
A penny for your pain
Another mile of rails
Another unblessed day
Your back is bent, fingers hurt
Mouth is full of dirt

Over mountain and lakes so blue
We will take the iron mule
The railway must come through

Inch by inch, like a snail so slow
But soon the iron mule will glow
From the southern shores
To the harbours of the north

21 and old
Winter wind is cold
Lungs they bleed for the iron mule,
To make way for the new
Fever makes you weak, you cry yourself to sleep
Arms they keep on pounding on
Sledge it weighs a ton

Over mountain and lakes so blue
We will take the iron mule
In a year and a day,
The railway must come through

Inch by inch, like a snail so slow
But soon the iron mule will go
In sun and rain
From now and ever on




8. THE MASTER THIEF

The dark he will steal from the shadows
From the neck of the goddess the bling
In a blink will take your sweet pillow
And even the horse under the king

He will snatch the last breath from the dying
The light is ripped from the day
He swears on the truth but is lying
And when luck comes your way,
He will take it away

Robs from both poor and rich men
All this, withoug being seen
Sparrows and wine from the kitchen
And with a gentle hand,
The heart of the princess

The master thief - the great deceiver
He fakes and he steals - the mystery weaver
The master thief - the great deceiver
There's always a thief - the mystery weaver

He's picking the stars like apples
Climbs up the tower again
The thief will be prince and then emperor
But love he can't steal, and no one to call friend

The master thief - the great deceiver
He takes and bereaves - the mystery weaver
The master thief - the great deceiver
There's always a thief - the mystery weaver
