a-wooooo I dance in shadows by the silvery moon beyond the city lights I travel far my shadow's out of sight I hide the wolf in me awoo awoo I would howl at the moon she holds my RAGE while I swoon you change my tale so I never sail broke my wings I'm a broken thing awoo awoo I would howl at the moon i tear your lies to a million shreds you steal my skin you are no kin I find it soon I shall be free... to be nice to be kind these rules were never mine in scarlet capes i I hide my will it always made me blue awoo awoo I would howl at the moon she holds my RAGE while I swoon you change my tale so I never sail broke my wings I'm a broken thing awoo awoo I would howl at the moon i tear your lies to a million shreds you steal my skin you are no kin Killed by night murdered by your might but I can never die my tale is old i have come for you the wolf in me survives awoo awoo I would howl at the moon she holds my RAGE while I swoon you change my tale so I never sail broke my wings I'm a broken thing awoo awoo I would howl at the moon i tear your lies to a million shreds you steal my skin you are no kin I find it NOW I'm FINALLY FREE....

Goldilocks 04:34
I know that look my dear I know it all too well she wants your chair to fit I know you catch my drift Your bed is much too hard it breaks her heart again you've gone soft on her now watch her run you're no more her jester You're chasing shadows they'll always be always be looking always be always be asking always be always be wanting someone better...out there you'll always be always be hurting always be always be waiting you will cave you will cave you will into blackness with her What is wrong today your porridge chilled him so it burns him bad he leaves you to the cold u try again you love your riddles too? now he's running bored Don't u see? You're kissing shadows… they'll always be always be looking always be always be asking always be always be wanting someone better...out there you'll always be always be hurting always be always be waiting you will cave you will cave you will into blackness with him Your Guess is getting warmer now so tear their heart out your're out of reasons to stay you see... Nothing to keep you here…. nothing fits nothing's right hang you dry so you cry nothing should keep you here you're better your're better you're better than this Turn don't take another step don't waste another moment there are things you can never change Change the tune that you will sing don't break this hopeful heart again again again and again So change the lock today no more the goldilocks laugh when they come crawling clawing at the door It's morbid entertainment if you care to watch and if it suits you well then dear, just shut the door

Snegurochka 04:06
O play play your song for me my world needs your honesty play for me true before my summer blues the falls of our chaos the sense of this loss a short lived encounter sigh like sirens in a dream Watch me dance watch me fall keep me safe in memories seasons come winters go I travel with the flow watch me dance watch me fall I'm just a memory winter called so I'm gone so lel lel play the song for me I'm a gypsy at heart once again I'm a traveller between worlds and fading out of time play play that song for me so I'm light on my feet again and I drift off in a breeze and i live again in dreams Watch me dance watch me fall keep me safe in memories seasons come winters go I travel with the flow watch me dance watch me fall I'm just a memory winter called so I'm gone born from spring made from frost snegurochka jumps again born from spring made from frost snegurochka leaves again Watch me dance watch me fall keep me safe in memories seasons come winters go I travel with the flow watch me dance watch me fall I'm just a memory winter called so I'm gone

Dance with me now into the pretty mirrors are broken fraternities Invert me now I'm just your shadow I'm just, jest I, we're in a dream lullabies are made of louder voices drowned in larger liquids lullabies are bending space and time and riding out with Venture lullabies are made of colour friendlies telling you to drink me lullabies are lullabies The mad hatter's down he's made his doppelganger his wife we're mad he must be stopped Topple his world he's just a copy he's just you, you jest Alice, we dream Lullabies are twins with mirrors dancing served in bloody mary lullabies are watching all the hippies eat their salmon, Ella lullabies are sending Spiders screaming to their Jerusalem lullabies are Telling all the kiddies Santa ate your brother Do only mirrors lie? Alice just wake up now Do only mirrors lie Alice u must not cry The queen of hearts is busy cloning herself oh my look at her go Transpose your homes she's breeding armies insects in sex do we still dream? lullabies are....

Butterflies 04:00
There's a dip as we trip through the ghostly shadows scream if I peel my darkly shades what will we see when all is shallow Stop this trembling... Once I peek to see if you follow twice I would turn to sorrow thrice I hope that we would swallow pride the size of gallows I'll be waiting just out of hiding for you will you watch out for me fall though my world we'll disappear once again and fly like swallows Unwind your mind I speak my secrets we're walking fast and my mind's a blur 18 times I drop the truth in tiny little trinkets a kiss would suffice in my mind the truth in me must try to rhyme Seek me and my heart will make words that float like swallows I'll be waiting just out of hiding for you could we ignore these stares watch for me by dawn in the crumbling graves I'll steal you away Laugh with me at the ones that won't see I'll send the waves that guide you to me they'll walk you through the gates I've torn asunder just for you Make a wish just as you fall as we scratch a memory in time shed a tear for the blind who maul but we should be on our way So look across on the path they take you just beyond the crying hills shed a tear and my world will open only just for you

Scheherazade 04:51
Scheherazade I recall your stories my scheherazade you weaved your tales just for me now I'll guard the fading songs from your universe for a thousand and one nights and more let me be your let me be your let me be your scheherazade Fade fade the lighthouse in your eyes as our names fade from your days You're still here, you're not here we're calling but we can't see past your greys I'd rescue you from all the sands of time I'd like to wish it true I'll call you out and you would smile just like u did before let me be your let me be your let me be your scheherazade goodbye we seem to say for the millionth time you know who I am don't u? remember remember I'll remember all your tales for you remember remember I'll remember all of you for you remember because you were once my you were once my you were once my scheherazade
