1. SERPENT RIDE

Upon the wings of a dream
She rides
Oh, she comes to me and
Fills me with light
Towards the dark side of the moon
We glide
She sings me a tune away though the silvery starlight

I dont want to wake up this time
I'm alive on this serpent ride

In the grace of our love
We writhe in pain
Further into the sunlight fog
Mesmerised
Drop of her blood tastes like wine
I answer her call
With a pride that is not dead
Which can eternal life
And is strange aeons death may die

In your eyes lies the world where i dont wanna go
Said you changed, but i don't belive in miracles
Since you conquered my heart we've never been apart
One day we'll close our eyes, open them again
And discover each other

So open up my eyes
She greets me with a smile
From her wrists flows wine




2. BORELLLUS

Essential salts of animals may
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure

Unhappy is he to whom the memories of childhood
Bring only fear and sadness
Old years of play
Wretched is he who looks back upon lone hours
In vast and dismal chambers
With brown hangings
And maddening rows of antique books

Watch them in twilight groves
Oh in twilight groves
Oh in twilight groves

By method from the essential salts of humane dust
A philosopher may call up the shape of any dead ancestor
From the dust where into his body has been
Incinerated incinerated incinerated

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child
In every new born child

Essential Salts of animals may
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned, he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned, he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child




3. THE HEARTLESS

Can't you see he's the heartless?
Your pain is not love.
He's taken it too far.
Don't you know it's wrong?
You're the one for me, lady.
You are the one.
If you'd only see in my heart,
You'd know all is not lost.

Waiting, waiting, waiting.
Your time is running out,
And you still haven't made up your mind.
Can't you see he's the heartless,
And that you're one of a kind?

He's the heartless, he's the heartless.
He's the heartless.
He's the heartless, he's the heartless.
He's the heartless, heartless.

You're the one for me lady.
Together we shall be to the end.
And if the sun comes down when you're not around,
It'll surely put me through hell.
You're the one for me lady.
Together we shall be to the end.
And if the sun comes down when you're not around,
It'll surely put me through hell.
Don't leave the sun to the one with no heart.
He is tearing you apart.
He won't ever let you go.
Don't you know what that means? He's not the man of your dreams.

He's the one with your heart,
And he's tearing you apart.
You can't see he's the heartless.
Your pain won't turn and be love.
It doesn't matter how hard you try.
To you all is lost.
Waiting, waiting, waiting.

He's the heartless, he's the heartless.
He's the heartless.
He's the heartless, he's the heartless.
He's the heartless, heartless




4. STIGMATA DIABOLI

I can't see your sad face and your pitiful eyes
Don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life
I'm your christ and i want you
This world's not for us and you know it, as well as I do

I can't see through your eyes,
Spill your tears on me.
I will lift the burden from your shoulders,
You just have to believe.
I'm your Christ and I want you.
This world's not for us and you know it, as well as I do.

Just as well as I do
Just as well as I do
Just as well as I do
Just as well as I do
Just as well as I do

I'm your christ and I want you
This world's not for us and you know it as well as I do
I'm your christ and I want you
this world's not for us and you know it as well as I do

Oh, so you've come for more?
And you say you want it all?
I'll cut myself for your love.
I'm killing myself, but you want more.
I'm your Christ and you want more?




5. WICKED GAME

World was on fire, no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you

No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
..With you

(This world is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game to play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing you do
To make me dream of you

No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
..With you

World was on fire, no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
No, and I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'll never dream that I lose somebody like you, no

No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
(No, I wanna fall in love
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
..With you

(This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I...
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
(This world is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one




6. THE PHANTOM GATE

Watch out for the kiss

There are things you should know
Distance between us grow
You're holding on strong
Oh how easy it would be to let go

It's taking you far too long
You did not look at the fire
It's taking you far too long
And it has become our funeral pyre
I spread my wings for you
Heaven, let your gate be open
I'll bless you with venomous kisses
And death in its own beauty

Listen to my heart, to my
Listen to my heart, to my

I'm losing my faith in you
You don't want it to be true
There's nothing you can do
There's nothing you can do

I've lost my faith in you
You did not look at the fire
I've lost my faith, it's true
And it has become our funeral pyre

I spread my wings for you
Heaven let your gate be open
I'll bless you with venomous kisses
My love in its own cruelty

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting
