Track Name: El Diablo
see the serpent twine
wrapped around her spine
coils inside her mind
bleeds her eyes so blind
she is killing time
casting pearls to swine
trapped beneath her crime
burnt, her skin seeps wine

moon turns red, silence speaks
...she is lead
welcome sleep...lost her head, monster dreams
...she is dead

see the serpent twine
crush her alibi
intoxicating lie
devils sing their lullaby
caught up in their schemes
drops down to her knees
begging baby pleas
serpents have their needs...

devils have her (serpents twine)
Track Name: Tainted
I remember when I was just a little child
I remember when all of this felt so alive
I remember when I could see and I could smile
I remember when I would hope and I would try
I remember when I would stare out at the miles
I remember when I could fall deep in blue skies
I remember when I was just a little child
I remember when all of this felt so alive

now I look around and all of this just feels like nothing
now I look around and all of this is so declined
now I look around and wonder why my heart feels nothing
now I look around and wonder why the blue skies died
now I look around, I realize that I've been tainted
now I look around, I see the world through blurry eyes
now I look around and all of this just feels like nothing
now I look around and all of this is so declined
and all of this is so declined
Track Name: Estrella
you
peach lips rose hips
wrapped around
you sonlight skintight
heaven bound

stars fly
birds sigh winds cry
beneath the ground
my love
angel grin blessed within
lost and found

climb into the skin cocoon
above our limbs...the harvest moon
into the night...we fight, consumed
with shouts of fire and hearts in bloom

you
dizzy kiss our bodies twist
void of sound
you
in my arms away from harm
above the clouds

with cotton candy lips like dew
your pretty face and eyes of blue
inside your heart is heaven true
forever and always am I with you
Track Name: Dome
let me sink into the sky
...dome
Track Name: Silver Sliver
aqua smile blue rhythm pulse me you
sky blue you
molten syrup flows through veins
night sky hue
twilight sprinkled a zillion eyes shine few
this feels new
lava consume cool numb and trancing view
the galaxy grew
rings of dust around us coil embrace
to kiss your face
breath falls like dust against your skin
your perfect skin

starshine moon drips dew and pulled me in
pulled me in
crystal sips of heaven entwined in him
drunk on his grin
heart soft lullaby swarming my dizzy head blood swim
my blood swim
soft this dream is mine and I'm his twin
I am him
Track Name: The Canal
wherever the corpse is
the vultures will gather
Track Name: The Kite
standing in a field flying my kite
the string slips out of my hand
the kite, it drops out of control
tangled and trapped on the telephone wire

please help me, don't walk right by

the angel's wings are trapped in telephone wires
and nobody cares, they go out of their way

standing on the street watching the day
a car stops in front of me
a gun, I drop out of control
I feel my blood, seeps warm out of me
Track Name: Orion
stars fall and we catch them
like snowflakes of light
dancing

glitter silver moon
time stands frozen

satellites spin me dizzy
I fall
into your arms
I fall
my heaven arms
I fall
dust pulsates...surrounds

angels dreaming for you
are my sugar starshine dream
with me tonight
mine
forever

the light is calling you
swirling heat dream
tonight in heaven
mine
forever mine

time
the sun turns blue
Track Name: Transition
and I think hard
can I prevail?

this all feels just like then
I just want this to end

and I reach out
can I prevail?

this is the transition to better days
Track Name: Defective
again and again and again...
I sing the same words
Track Name: The Devil
see the serpent twine
wrapped around her spine

welcome sleep...lost her head, monster dreams
...she is dead

see the serpent twine
crush her alibi
intoxicating lie
devils sing their lullaby
