Track Name: Hell Libertine
Mainlining the devil’s blood
I shattered every inhibition
Like so many holy shackles
Made of ice on which blasphemous hammers fell
I want it all
The gold, the flesh, the power
No shame in this confession
I am just another slave
To the gold, the flesh and the power
Just another slave
In man beats a bestial heart
We savour every new transgression
Pleasure folded into loathing
Reduced and fermented
The poison for your well
Enslaven vermin tide
Ever dreaming of regicide
Track Name: Circle Of Manias
A mannequin posed
She spoke in tongues
So drawn to flame
She loved the burn
And torch to palm
She got what she deserved
Broken daughter
Nature bred what afflicts you
Heaven abandoned you all
And marked by pain
You need the hurt
And torch to palm
You get what you deserve
All the while singing
Flow my tears good stranger
All the while singing flow my tears
Track Name: Gaslighter
You twist my words
With mastered apathy
A barbed solipsist verse
The world beyond your mind is a mirage
A charnel house
Of absent empathy
An imitated warmth
I know your tender way is a facade
Blue devil
A frigid dancer in the fog
No rhyme in cancer
You keep me strung out on your love
Gaslighter
Vermin and the crown
You built this
Just to tear it down
In desert wards
You grew among the dunes
And as you pulled my strings
You became everything I ever knew
Track Name: Rain Gallery
I walked twenty-eight years
In the shadow of the sun
Just looking for a gallery
To hang the memory of one
Red curls in the wintertime
You always were my queen
Two survivors in the aftermath
The universe was you and me
I walked twenty-four years
In the half light of the moon
Just looking for a gallery
To hang the memory of you
Green eyes in the summertime
I never could explain
Birds of peace only stay awhile
My kindness only brought you pain
And I am still the same
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Just a portrait in a frame
In your gallery of rain
You keep the lambency and shade
I gave you
Track Name: Vice Regalia
Bound together like the crown and sceptre
We were made
To pursue the highs
That only royalty could crave
Smoke and neon
Quiet stranger
Bitter amber
We are favoured
Burning sugar
Emerald nectar
This transgressive rite
Is our communion
Rules of mind and moral
Cleaved so recklessly
As we plunge into an ocean green
Deep as this self-destructive need
Sublime intoxication
Vice regalia fever dream
Nothing matters we are free
Free until tomorrow
In a ritual union
Jaded as the soma we imbibe
I will fix you so you break with me
For one more night
Smoke and neon
Quiet stranger
Bitter amber
We are favoured
Burning sugar
Emerald nectar
This transgressive rite
Is our communion
And just like all things that shine
Found in life first so fine
The high is flawed by design
As the sun must burn out in time
It all fades
