Track Name: I'm Afraid
The sun has left
the lonely sky
The shadows fill
my ancient eyes
I'm so alone
in my room tonight
I will not fear
I will not cry

Go away
doesn't mean
"Go away"
It just means
"I am afraid"
'cause I still see
your face
even though you're
far away
and I have wept
and I have bled
but still I lay
in this empty bed
and one more thing
by the way
before you go to sleep
you should know
I'm still afraid
I'm still afraid
I am still afraid
I feel your spirit
close to me
then next I feel it
slip away
Track Name: The Body Is A Cage
I don't know if I can tell you
anything at all, anything at all
I don't want to think about it
I want to be alone, can I be alone?
I don't know if I
can stand the sound
of that clock ticking
when I have seen the world
stagger, tripping
falling, kicking

This is my father's garden
this is where I came from
I am a tree enraged
my prophecy
the body is a cage

I don't want to look around me
I don't like what I see, I don't like what I see
Man take root and prostitute
his immortality for material things
I don't know that I
can stand the sound
of that clock ticking
when I have seen the world
stagger, tripping
falling, kicking

This is my father's garden
this is where I came from
I am a tree enraged
my prophecy
the body is a cage

I am a child
I am alone
I am a ghost
in the spiritual unknown
I feel no pain
slip from the flame
then I spiral skyward
to an evolutionary plane

...isn't it strange?
Track Name: The Poet And The Siren
I don't know if you recall
the winter night when first I saw you
walking through the silent fields
so elegant the siren singer
The skylark sang the pauper's song
I followed you and sang along
We lie beneath the great horned moon
I worship you, I worship you

Under the hallowed moon
angel, I still remember you
walking under the hallowed moon
angel, I can remember you

The skylark sang the pauper's song
I followed you and sang along
We lie beneath the great horned moon
I worship you, I worship you

In idle haunt, in secret glance
behind the veil her eyes entranced
the poet writes with trembling hands
I knew her in some other land
The flower vase, the mantle piece
the torment lace, the tapestry
the rocking chair, the canopy
this black room brings back
everything to me

Under a hallowed moon
angel, I still remember you
walking under the hallowed moon
angel, I can remember you

The flower vase, the mantle piece
the torment lace, the tapestry
the rocking chair, the canopy
this black room brings back
everything to me

In candle light the poet writes
it takes him back in broken flight
to another time, another land
to when he saw the hologram
Her ivory flesh, the velvet dress
the prayer and the secret kiss
The balcony, the gentle breeze
Your tears they taste familiar to me

Under a hallowed moon
angel, I still remember you
walking under the hallowed moon
angel, I can remember you

Her ivory flesh, the velvet dress
the prayer and the secret kiss
The balcony, the gentle breeze
Your tears they taste familiar to me

The trembling mouth, the open legs
the blindfold and the cutting blade
The perfume and the serpent egg
oh I remember everything
For darkness reveals everything
The omens and the prophecies
The ancient hymn the siren sings
The poet recalls everything

Under the hallowed moon
angel, I can remember you
walking under the hallowed moon
angel, I can remember you

The darkness reveals everything
The omens and the prophecies
The ancient hymn the siren sings
Oh sometimes you mean everything to me
Track Name: Crying Room
Lonely
I was saving myself
and feeling down
think I'll cry here

Wondering
what I'm doing
think I'll cry here
This is where I'll stay

And this room won't get me down
with it's pictures of your smiling face
I always see the pictures
I always see your face
Even when the candle's out
I always want to talk about it
in my room, this is where I cry

And if the moon don't shine
I won't shed a tear
because the moon
the moon isn't mine

And if the sun don't shine
I will not close my eyes
because after all
the sun isn't mine
Track Name: Anna
Look into my eyes
light the candle read the signs
see the ludicrous design
of the mind

Kiss the mouth and lock the door
I can't see you anymore
Feel the lubricated snake
as she awakes

Oh Anna can't you see
There's a ghost inside of me
He's the serpent I'm the tree
Oh Anna

You are poison in my eyes
and I watch you as you lie
I have see you in the sky
Anna

See her walking down the stairs
spiders hanging from her hair
I still see her everywhere
Anna

Oh Anna can't you see
There's a ghost inside of me
He's the serpent I'm the tree
Oh Anna, can't you see?
Track Name: Son Of God
I am the setting sun
I'm the voice inside your head
I am the falling rain
feel my blood running red
I am the voice of love
hear me lie, hear me lie
I am the son of god
crucified, crucified

The poet prays with a poison mouth
my soul's been taken away
And with a mouth of sores
I kiss the spirit whore
and now I'm waiting for the 7th day
Pray for me, for my soul's been taken away
Pray for me, for my soul's been taken away

I am one, as you are one
and we are one
and one is all I know

I am the devil's child
worship me, worship me
I am the serpent egg
I'm the poisonous seed
And the serpent hides
in all the coven brides
all their souls are waiting on me
So they shave their heads
then climb into my bed
and they lay their hands on me
saying...

"I am one, as you are one
and we are one
and one is all I know"

I am the flesh of god
kiss my hands, kiss my hands
I am the king of soul
I am sky I am land

And the pipes are playing
and the preacher's praying
and the world keeps spinning around
And the dizzy souls
are feeling vertigo
that's why we keep falling down
I am the song of god
kiss my mouth, kiss my mouth
I am the ancient one
kiss my mouth, kiss my mouth

Now I'm conceived
of the demon seed
and my soul is crying out
for the holy three
to lay their hands on me
'cause the voice keeps screaming out
"I am love, I am the son of God"
Track Name: Candle In The Rain
Angel kiss then whisper
she don't love me anymore
Angel eyes like winter
she can't see me anymore

And I don't want to hear your name
And I don't want to feel the pain
when I close my eyes
to the flicker of the flame

And I don't want to see your face
And I don't want my heart to break
as my spirit waits
like a candle in the rain

Angel kiss then trembles
she don't want me anymore
She walks away in visions
as love lies broken on the floor

And I don't want to know her name
And I don't want to see her face
when I close my eyes
I'll sleep alone tonight

And I don't want to feel the pain
And I don't want our love to fade
like the flickering flame
of the candle in the rain

And I don't want to know her name
And I don't want to see her face
And I don't want to feel the pain
Because I don't want my heart to break

Angel kiss then sighs "Goodbye"
Angel kiss then cries "Goodbye"
Track Name: The Judas Kiss
She denies everything
like an angel hiding her wings
Her words they twist in broken flight
make nest, the tree of deceit
Her trembling hands rest on his skin
his eyes begin to cry
Her angel touch tells everything
still vulnerable and shy

In candle cage, turn back the page
lifting infinity's veil
Subtle bliss, your Judas kiss
in the gardens of betrayal

I held you close as mountain ghosts
bend branches revealing the moon
Saw in your eyes your spirit child
still locked inside a room

Like a spirit in a feather box
the child has never grown
She feels my phantom arms around her
though she's still alone

In candle cage, turn back the page
lifting infinity's veil
Subtle bliss, your Judas kiss
in the gardens of betrayal

I confess I really miss
your Judas kiss
Angel eyes I really miss
your Judas kiss
Track Name: I Cry
*improvised*
Track Name: Ticking Of The Clock
I'm growing sick to be alone
I'm sitting vacant in my home
though I don't know you well at all
I thought I'd force myself to call
but when I try to talk to you
it seems I'm never getting through
and though I'm trying to be myself
it always sounds like someone else

My life's the ticking of the clock
My life's the phone that never rings
My life's the door that never knocks
My life's the girl I couldn't bring

And when the silence gets too loud
the tv keeps me company
It's light will shine across the room
the records, books and magazines
While these things accumulate
I guess that love will have to wait
It's my material barricade
for blocking out the absence rays

My life's the girl I couldn't bring
My life's the door that's always locked
My life's the phone that never rings
My life's the ticking of the clock
Track Name: Tuesday
And I'm sorry if
I ever made you cry
but you know I only
wanted to protect you
And I walk away
as the tears build in your eyes
but I didn't turn to see
the sign you're holding
And I never read the signs
No I never read the signs
But I didn't want to make you cry
with the echo of my last goodbye
I didn't want to make you cry
with the echo of my last goodbye

And I watch you sleep
feel your hands around my heart
and you close your eyes
as if I'd never leave you
Then I kissed your face
and I turned and closed the door
This hallway never seemed
so long and empty

And you'll always be my child
And I'll always see your eyes
And I hope I didn't make you cry
with the echo of my last goodbye
Track Name: New Vibration
Lilith lie in this pentagram
the butterfly is inside you
The queen of sores
kissed my bleeding hands
then she wept the tears of Delilah
And all the prophets said
in all the books I've read
"The judgement is the mirror"
And the mirror veils
where all the spirits dwell
and you can't get any nearer

Feel your spirit pour
It's a revelation
Feel your body soar
It's a new vibration

Take L.S.D. and hallucinate
the color box is exploding
I've got Satan trapped in my tv set
what is that I'm holding?
It's the remote control
to his immortal soul
but he's on every channel

Let's go play in the mushroom field
where abstract eyes can behold us
Let's go spin on the cherub wheel
where spirit hands can unfold us
And the queen of sores
gave me the hermit card
and called me the child of creation
Then we both lie down
on hallowed ground
in Tantric unification

Feel your spirit pour
It's a revelation
Feel your body soar
It's a new vibration
