1. SUMMER ARTERIES

Witch County murder party helter skelter
To the scaffold reborn
Through the haze of an August swelter
To the wind kissed rustle of the corn

Bored of the dark places
My heart races
Hellraiser's come to start a war

Pretty Miss Ballistic
Let's get... Miss Ballistic
Lets' best be optimistic for the game
Begging for our pardon
We are free to walk the garden
Things will never ever be the same

Crucifixes fail to shit and hinder us today
The sunlight doesn't spit and cinder us away

Breaking bad
The shadow clad
We promised bad
Camaraderie

Dies irae
Of red bouquets
Upon this day
A spray of summer arteries

Fixed, vile, vain, inhumane trail blazers
To the pyre return
Through the fog and the cut-throat razors
To the screams of those unwilling to burn

Bored of the dark places
My heart races
Hellraiser's come to start a war

Pretty Miss Ballistic
Don't get shitty Miss Ballistic
Best be optimistic for the game
Begging for our pardon
They are weak to make us harden
Things will never ever be the same

Never ever be the same

Burning in those angel eyes
Truly wicked angel eyes
Yearning in those angel eyes
Truly wicked angel eyes

Burning in those angel eyes
Truly wicked angel eyes
Yearning in those angel eyes
Truly wicked angel eyes

Crucifixes fail to shit and hinder us today
The sunlight doesn't spit and cinder us away

Breaking bad
The shadow clad
We promised bad
Camaraderie

Dies irae
Of red bouquets
Upon this day
A spray of summer arteries

A spray of summer arteries

Upon this day
A spray of summer arteries




2. EVEN YOUR BLOOD GROUP REJECTS ME

Remember
Last December
Winter’s temper
Drew your surrender
We were huddled by the blazing hearth
I must’ve been befuddled by
Your witchcraft

And as the embers died
I threw in with the madness
By the fireside
I threw in with the madness
In those tired eyes
I threw in with the madness
Denied and by an by
Driven to demand

Dressed for the guest to show
Spirit before the blow
So press on the net to know
I’ll never let you go
No need to fantasize
Time to intensify
No one will climb this high
Ever again

I flick the switch
You choose the volts
Still spitting deep dark dagger insults
You’re still a bitch
I ooze revolt
Painful to see
Even you blood group rejects me

Remember
This September
My distemper
Like Edmund Kemper’s
Finds you shackled to the fruit cellar bed
Mine the faculty for
Losing my head

And as I watch you writhe
I soak up all the badness
Against my other brides
I soak up the badness
In my lover’s eyes
I soak up all the badness
Despised and by the by
Driven to command

Dressed for the guest to show
Spirit before the blow
So press on the net to know
I’ll never let you go
No need to fantasize
Time to intensify
No one will climb this high
Ever again

I flick the witch
You choose the volts
Still spitting deep dark dagger insults
You’re still a witch
I ooze revolt
Painful to see
Even you blood group rejects me

Even you blood group rejects me

Pour forth your hate
We have all life entwined to subjugate it

Dressed for the guest to show
Hatred and vertigo
So press on the net to know
I’ll never let you go
No need to fantasize
Time to intensify
No one will climb this high
Ever again

No...




3. GIRL FROM MYSTERY ISLAND

Piggy in the middle when the circus came to town
I was born with streaks of moonshine in my veins
Scratching hallelujahs on the up and outward bound
I found my Fay Wray dancing in the rain

She was murder, she was cause
Flowing from the jungle dams
Wrapped in a fog that obscured those shores
She was growing wetter in her hinterlands

She was the perfume of pain
Her love was acute
And Monster-baiting again

She wrestled beauty with the snarl of a cat
Washed upon my beach
Like a matter of fact

A burning flame on the Wicker Man's lap
The place where she rose
Peculiarity's at

She was the essence of loss
Hung out on a limb
And Giant aping the cross

Girl from mystery island
Seeking asylum, freed from the cage
Shes quite an acrobat, the left off bedroom latch
A reddened snatch from open debate

She was native, she was pure
Her sins original before
I liked her naked foreign cure
She made my conquered heart beat
Like the drumming of claws

She was the queen of delight
A wall to wall savage
With the keenest of minds

She was a delirious sight
A belligerent witch
Of voodoo and the night

A dirty creature to my Doctor Moreau
The sway of dark hips
Was a reason to know

Flashing invites with her animal eyes
They spoke of a realm
Where rites of passage decide

This force of nature
A Vulcano meant to blow
Where the hell did you come from angel?
Where the fuck did you go?

The moon is cold and I am pleading
This world is strange and so misleading
Let me go my soul is needing
The song beyond the gates

I rise now and set
My mind on the coastal road
I rise now and let you lie...

Good bye
My girl from mystery island
Leaving asylum
Freed to the skies

But why?
I want you back
I will scour seven seas for you
Turn out cemeteries for you
Pray I see you smiling on the face of strangers

There I see you hunting for the taste of danger

She was the perfume of pain
Her love was acute
And Monster-baiting again

She wrestled beauty with the snarl of a cat
Washed upon my beach
Like a matter of fact

A burning flame on the wicker man's lap
The place where she rose
Peculiarity's at

She was the essence of loss
Hung out on a limb
And giant aping the cross

Girl from mystery island

My girl from mystery island staring at you...




4. THE STAKE IN MY HEART

Beating with the fury of the Valkyrie in flight
Miasma flips the triggers in my veins
Greeting immortality
Sweet realities take me high
I'm sail past derailing once again

Now
The darkness is a welcome stranger

Running with the comings of
A thousand years ago
The rites of love will soon give way to stains

I seek this freak agility, wreaked debility on
The snow
The winter night is splintered from the reins

Let's make the sun go down
Let's make the sun go down

Belfries will chime
The scratch upon the window
Whispers at your throat are divine
Oh Sister Christ
I know you're wet to get some
Share my many reasons to defy

Keener, Miss Demeanour

Lap up the blood
The wait is near-unbearable
Death is always sweeter at the start
Agree to be
There's something terrible
You shall hold a cold stake in my heart

Meaner, Miss Demeanour

I'll be your navigator
Through this whirl of frozen stars
And maybe sometimes later lady
We will light these scars

Bad Karma Sutra, the future arrives
Dancing grotesquely, caressing our lives
Behold the power the hour provides
Whipping the storm, the trees to swarm
For we will never die

My darling
We shall never die

Dancing with Devil revels on throughout
All time
Madness shall envelop in the end
So for now let us climb to the sublime
And cast aside all phantoms that portend

Let's make the sun go down
Let's make the sun go down

Open the page
The Book of Necronomicon
Shall be written solely of our deeds
Assuage the rage
Eternity goes on and on
Feeding on the font of wanton needs

Keener, Miss Demeanour

Lap up the blood
The wait is near-unbearable
Death is always sweeter it's true
Agree to be
Your skin's so wearable
You shall hold a cold stake in my heart

Meaner Madam Mina




5. LIVING WITH THE FUNGUS

Love is parasitic, pathogenic, a cage
Departing then absorbing the brain
That is engaged
It came to visit in a physical stage
Before the spores lay dormant
Now they leap off the page

When imposters walk among us
Am I living with the fungus

You're sucking the life from me
A vampiress of the soul
We have precious little time for kisses
Just faking control

We grew together like a mould
On a Petri dish long turned cold
Where madness traps a bitter harvest

Love is psychotropic, in my pocket a drain
And scars upon a woman-handled heart
Are so plain
Her fruiting body suited me all the same
Once this jar lay open
Now it's closed to the pain

When imposters walk among us
Are we living with the fungus?

Lost in the night
You're like the breaking of day
The setting rot on its way

Can't stop the living with the fungus

A terminal blight
Seeping on its prey
Trust is rusting away

The dead are living with the fungus

You're sucking the life from me
A vampiress of the soul
We have precious little time for kisses
Just faking control

We grew together like a disease
Overthrowing reality
Where madness reaps a bitter harvest

I should've guessed by the red
She was strictly poisonous
Sick to the stockinged gills
Breaking down my organic matter

Black trumpets announce
This destroying angel
Death cap tipped to Hell
It so tells she excels at
This fermentation

You're fucking the life from me
A murderess of the soul
We have precious little time for kisses
Just hate on a roll

We grew together like a mould
On a graveyard centerfold
Where darkness reaped a bitter harvest

Lost in the night
You're the like breaking of day
The setting rot on its way

Can't stop me living with the fungus




6. MOTHER KALI

Beast of prey
The ender of days
Dancing fill the livid skies
With the madness in those eyes
Drunk on blood and slaughter
Apocalypse's daughter
Goddess depravity
Come unbridled unto me

Mother Kali, Kali Maa
Cover Partly
Mother Kali, Kali Maa
Oh, lover darkly
Start this party divali

Start this party darkly
Start this party darkly
Start this party darkly

Hiss disdain
Mistress of pain
A brace of scars caress her
Naked limbs bedeck her
Up-lit by fire
Monstrous with desire
She rides, harbinger of
Death, the great vampire

Mother Kali
Kali Maa
Oh cover Partly
Shiva's starred peninsula

Mother Kali
Kali Maa
Oh, lover darkly
Start this party Mardi Gras

Let's go!

The heavens bow before you
The cemeteries adore you
Though daemon lords abhor you
For the creature that you are

She is the totality of nature
Liberator, desecrator, one with god

Bliss regained
Beauty untamed
Sighs untie the knots of time
And bind me to your alibi
Give up your secret
The worlds you've burnt to keep it...

Temper dead endeavours and
Put down you vicious swords

Mother Kali
Kali Maa
Oh cover Partly
Shiva's starred peninsula

Mother Kali
Kali Maa
Oh, lover darkly
Start this last evisceration




7. STARING AT THE WEREWOLF CORPS

Madness
Crawling through my veins
I'm tasting blood again
The fallen lamb
In darkness
This heartache leaves a stain
And I wear this mask of Cain
For I am damned

I'm the last line of defence
The raw nerve twitching, spider sense
I break the fingers that alert me you are
Closing in there

I'm the bastard present tense
My teeth are bared and eyes intense
And I will linger on inert, before your hurt's
A closing in, yeah

Rashness
The young mistress of fear
Cavorts her pleasures here
You make the move

Not fastest
Far from the shadow's grasp
My fury paints bloodbath
Across the moon

I'm the exit straight to death
No way out and nothing fucking less
I am the royal guard to great unspoiled
Things there

I'm the final line of sight
The stay between you and the prize
I am the loyal minister boiling in the coiled
Wings, yeah

Defrost me
I'm the weird jackal - reared inhuman Entity
Don't cross me
I'm a psychopathic graphic one beast war

Accosted with fright, fingers overbite
The night delights in lost identity
And while you're wondering 'what for'?
Conscripts...
You're staring at the werewolf corps

Here in the dark
I drain your pained remaining tears
Here sated hunger gasps
With the succour of velvet dreams

And, here like the past
Desire is bound to my grasped covenant
And down here in the dark
I aspire to make you all scream

Scream

I'm the last line of defence
The raw nerve twitching, spider sense
I break the fingers that alert me you are
Closing in there

I'm the bastard present tense
My teeth are bared and eyes intense
And I will linger on inert, before your hurt's
A closing in, yeah

Defrost me
I'm the weird jackal - reared inhuman Entity
Don't cross me
I'm a psychopathic graphic one beast war

Accosted with fright, fingers over bite
The night delights in lost identity
And while you're wondering 'what for'
Hey, bitch...
You're staring at the werewolf corps




8. SANITY HITS A (PERFECT) ZERO

In the night
By the light grown to dementia
I'm alright
It's all the others that are clearly insane

Unturning
Discerning what card to lay
I'm burning
Still learning to curb my ways

Pretty little Anna

I felt her heart like the start of a tribal beat
As the trees grew dark at the edge of her
Periphery

I'm not the wolf when I don't want to be
I dreamt a life with me the hero
But when the moon is full
And the alcohol grips my veins
Sanity hits a perfect zero

Desire
I'm alright
It's all the others that are clearly insane

Desire
Fires lick the slopes of a sick Pompeii
I'm tired
Holding roped the beast from its wicked ways

Pretty little Anna

Pretty little hammer
Bury it away

I watched her back for the lack of a front to
Play
As the sky grew black at this beauty in her
Disarray

I'm not the wolf when I don't meant to be
I dreamt a life with me the hero
But when the moon is full
And the alcohol grips my veins
Sanity hits a perfect zero

Sanity hits a perfect zero when you're around
My feet don't touch the ground

Spirited away to a distant shore
Driven to a madness sweet and virginal

What sights!
What rights does she have to steal my mind
Again?
Those cold eyes given her away

They given her away
Give her away
Give her away to this passion plague

I'm not the wolf when I don't want to be
I dreamt a life with me the hero
But when the moon is full and the alcohol grips my veins
Sanity hits a perfect zero

Grips my veins
Its a perfect zero
It grips my veins




9. LAUDANUM SKULL

The shine is sipped
The exquisitely drained
I find the grip in my gut
Is religiously pained
Borne for a spiritual gain

I embrace this catharsis
The taste of this forbidden fruit
One taste, I'm in thrall to the darkness
And yes, I guess
I'm a willing recruit

The shine is sipped
Soporific and caned
I dream the seizing of the keys
To the astral plane
Deep in this decadent sleep

I embrace this catharsis
The taste of this forbidden fruit
One taste, I'm in thrall to the darkness
And yes, I guess
I'm too eager to loot

This eve is thrilled by toasts
And the stars intoxicate me

Here in sweet arms
My heart is swimming with the sallow moon
Hearing the psalms
Her secret altar

My pen is quilled with hosts
And they foster flotsam poetry

Wing me the past
The now and then weds with the all-too soon
I mean it to last
My soul is burning...

I bid thee night-night
Opiate daze
Takes me until daybreak

It sees me right, right
Set in my ways
Utopian worlds await my coming

Living in the red in a black
And white sea
Never on the level of Illuminata
Dancing with the dead in the cemetery
I'm running with the devil with the
Most stigmata

I embrace this catharsis
The taste of this forbidden fruit
One taste, I'm in thrall to the darkness
And yes, I guess
I'm a willing recruit

My marriage to the baggage of life and
Death's annulled

Here in sweet arms
My heart is swimming with the sallow moon
Hearing the psalms
Her secret altar

A greater plan has batched in my
Laudanum skull

Drinking the balm
She's the painted, tainted hand of doom
Sinking to calm
My maniac psalters




10. THE GREAT AND SECRET SHOW

She
She brought the enemy down
She brought the Great and Secret Show
To my surrender
I, pretender to the crown

She
She's a vessel for peace
She's a trophy of war that caws
Like an omen of darkness
Meditating on the welcoming feast

The Great and Secret Show
Takes away the scars
But will you ever know?

She
She brought the pessimist round
She brought the Great and Secret Show
To my dilemma
Forgotten property to astound

And through
Through the eyes of the storm
Through the tragic and the magical
Celebrations
My sky was soon reborn

The Great and Secret Show
Glitters like the stars
Upon the festive snow

The Great and Secret Show

Great and secret
Sow to truly reap it
Phantasmagoric
Fateful, categoric
Show...

On the cusp of your decided suicide
She comes
An offered kiss, a glimpse of fate

If you reject her
Shun the gifts for lifting fear
She'll bring awful nightmares crawling here

But if you take her hand tonight
Slid, gloved about your waist
She'll show you Christmas in deliria
Love's sweetest taste

She
She brought the circus to town
She brought the Great and Secret Show
With slick agenda
To mend this irksome clown

And she
Like a vision of art
She opened my eyes to a world of
Fresh adventure
In absentia from the dark

The Great and Secret Show
Glitters like the stars
Upon the festive snow

The Great and Secret Show

Great and secret
Hard to really keep
Phantasmagoric
Glad I fucking saw it
Show...
