Track Name: Resurrected
And so I came to
In the bed of the fallen whore
The skies of the whole world
A brand new corpse from the night before
This lover sent for blood
The dagger digging out of her core
In the mouth of birth and death
I found not hell... But another door

And in the blood left on the sheets
The tears still fall and my heart still beats
Now with her hair strung through my teeth
Sharing her breath I breathe resurrected

Like a flower doomed to wilt
She laid naked amidst her kill
Then came a violent turning there
The dead womb with the brand new will
This assasin had given forth
A new being that could know no guilt
I felt the flesh and tore right through
This long dead soul is living still

And in the blood left on the sheets
The tears still fall and my heart still beats
Now with her hair strung through my teeth
Sharing her breath I breathe resurrected

"There is another there to find"
She waits for all to hear you sing
You've lost hope but remember this:
You'll suffer no love without the sting"
She pulled my hand to her chest
“Fall to you knees for the news I bring"
She spoke the words with her dying breath
"You're no longer a man, now go be a king"

And in the blood left on the sheets
The tears still fall and my heart still beats
Now with her hair strung through my teeth
Sharing her breath I breathe resurrected
Track Name: Some Angels Have Horns
Come with your lips
And your swaying hips
Under God's eyes and naked as birth
We've got these souls
But don't you want to know
Just what these scarlet secrets are worth?
This coming and going
This guessing and knowing
It's not the soil from which our souls are wrought
I've got your dreams
In my pocket seams
And the horns grown from where my halo will not

Lift your ass right
Up to the sky
However you wish to say your prayers
You are the god
On which I am caught
With your healing fingers sliding through my hair
But for now your grace
And angelic face
Belong facedown in the pillows of this bed
You'll find your peace
Fallen on your knees
'Til your holy ghost has left my haunted head
Track Name: 2000yrs
And so I came to sit beside your lord
I was stunned with shock at what I saw
His words were vapour and eyes wide shut
Blood dripping from his archaic laws
But the worst of the story is still coming
I'd heard a voice that gave me pause
There was man with his hand swingin' above me
With a thin wire jerking your god's jaws

Two thousand years is two thousand years
Just another day gone before it was here
And all the profits are the sinners now
Just a waste not unlike your toothless fear

I didn't believe - I didn't want to believe
That the punchline could be such a fucking joke
So I came to wonder if any good could
Come from your pile of abandoned hope
And just then a miracle came to pass
As I heard the man above me choke
Would you believe - could you believe?
Man jerked too hard and your god's jaw was broke

Two thousand years is two thousand years
Just another day gone before it was here
And all the profits are the sinners now
Just a waste not unlike your toothless fear
Track Name: This Is What You've Waited For, pt 1
I think I saw you yesterday
Standing at the back of my mind
You came right out of the future
In a setting undefined
All the tears and anguish gone
With all that missing time
And the whole of the world right beside you
Everything just fell in line

It would seem all your life was coming to this
All those years life owed you more
'Bout time you got what you wanted
This is what you've waited for

And so we walked out to the sun
A kind of pleasure that ought to kill us
The whole world and its will
All bending and broken for us
One day you and I will own it all
Just me and my fated queen
Til then we'll speak in silence
Through the ether of another dream

It would seem all your life was coming to this
All those years life owed you more
'Bout time you got what you wanted
This is what you've waited for

None of them can stand between us
Or in the way of our destiny
This is the start of the ending
Here on its just you and me

It would seem all your life was coming to this
All those years life owed you more
'Bout time you got what you wanted
This is what you've waited for
Track Name: Underneathe the Iceberg
Somewhere there, out on the iceflow
And drifting out in the numbing sea
She was cracked off of my glacier
She was some long lost part of me
Cutting up like shards of glass
She was still though not serene
There was peace there on her surface
But what laid below drew me down

Through the vapour of my breath
Her soul called from below the ice
Shedding safety I broke the surface
And found myself trapped underneathe

Together caught and still so cold
And we are lost with no intent
Her cold has killed no lesser men
All for the heat they thought they meant

This iceberg took me inside her
I am myself a furnace...
Track Name: The Ether, pt 3
Wake up there sunshine
It's time to get up and go to work
You've grown fat from the credit you've been awarded
This is the moment where the debts will all be paid

You've laid self-satisfied in your dreamy little coma
But know that the moment you always feared has arrived
You are a fraud and you have been exposed
What resource have you to hide from it all now?
You have nothing because you have defrauded even yourself
And the worst of it is you're still sleeping
But you never really sleep
Because the nightmare that it will all come crashing down never leaves you
I have some bad news for you sunshine
It already has and it happened while you were sleeping
You made this bed...
But you can not sleep in it any longer

Your masochism is sickening
I've watched you drug your petulant, opiated soul for years now
Gorged to choking on your money and consumerism
Gorged to vomiting from your lies and self-abasement
You have a theory that if you leave it alone, it just goes away
But the real illusion you've been holding up
Is the us vs. them mentality that kept you above it all
You can call it a cancer and medicate it
But eventually you just have to face the truth:
YOU ARE THE CANCER

Oh, but wait...
Was that all a dream?
No, you're safe and sound and tucked into bed
The special little gift from god is still in control
No one is ashamed of you
And you certainly have every reason
To be proud of who you are
You're your own man
And the whole world bows to you
Gift from god?
Wake up fuckhead

There are no more chances
You shouldn't have counted on the last
Get out of bed
Rub the breadcrust out of your eyes
Put your clothes on
And get to work
Track Name: Prescursed
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Blisster
She's my irreversible deed
She's my one fait accompli
All the nerves laid bare to see
It's all down to this

I was naked for her to approve
Stripped clean with nothing to lose
So full of fear I couldn't move
It is all down to this

We lay together in the muted light
I offered peace to her worried mind
Just take it
Don't you question why
It's all down to this

her FLESH is BLISSTER
BLISSTER, BURN

Sliding up inbetween her knees
She was staring right back at me
I looked hard but I couldn't read
It was all down to this

Lost on the body in the summer night
I was caught on the heart and mind
I lost the battle but the war's still mine
Her soul was lost with this

her SEX is BLISSTER
BLISSTER, BURN
Track Name: The Moment
I can know no fear
Through you

Somehow the word "forever"
Got lost along the way
Something at the core of me
Cracked in half and fell away
But I am done with fear
Feeling nerves that have long been dead
And the whole of a soul is waiting
With the truth wrapped round your head

You never lost your soul
You just set it all aside
The fear inside you said
It were better if it all just died
But time's coming hard now
Winter is not so far to see
You've had the key to Eden
Hidden there beneath your feet

And when they come to cut us down
And we are torn apart
Standing there at the gates of hell
We will simply say
We had the moment
Track Name: This Is What You've Waited For, pts 2+3
None of them can stand between us
Or in the way of our destiny
This is the start of the ending
Here on it's just you and me
It would seem all you life was coming to this
All those years life owed you more
'Bout time that you got what you wanted
This what you've waited for
