Track Name: Monster
Beings of air, guardians of east, breath of transformation I invoke thee
Beings of fire, guardians of south, spark of creation I invoke thee
Beings of water, guardians of west, rain of inspiration I invoke thee
Beings of earth, guardians of north, soil of foundation I invoke thee
Track Name: Anthem PT 2
I want to break you
To tear apart your fortress with fires and guns blazing
To find you all bare and brazen, all wild-eyed and glory bound
And then I'll...

I want to take you to my bed
Watch the sun rise against the horizons of your eyes
And if you'll allow I'll wake up real early and we can smoke weed in the morning
And then I'll...

Sending a picture is like saying hello and despite the technology I'll rip out my phone

I want to map out your constellations, draw my lines between every freckle and star
Will your beauty mark me if I kiss you completely?
Will my head swim when you...

Sending a picture is like saying hello and despite the technology I'll rip out my phone
Track Name: Do You Want This?
Do you want this? I will nail my heart to your door.

Tell me it's not still, but beats light
Oh, that light we possess that we throw when we sing.

Do you want this? I will nail my heart to your door.

Baby and me, in a tree, L-O-N-G-I-N-G when we say to them 'do you want this, do you want me, do you love us, do you want this?'

Do you want this? I will nail my heart to your front door.
Track Name: Invocation
Beings of air, guardians of east, breath of transformation I invoke thee
Beings of fire, guardians of south, spark of creation I invoke thee
Beings of water, guardians of west, rain of inspiration I invoke thee
Beings of earth, guardians of north, soil of foundation I invoke thee
Track Name: Lovely Laura Palmer
Lovely Laura Palmer, with your heart all skin and bone
Took you from your shoe box home and left you all alone
Where the owls aren't what they seem

Lovely Laura Palmer, with your heart all open wide
Lurking in the darkest night with a knife at your side
Finding beauty in homicide

Dropped her body in the sea
Girl you know you're like me

Lovely Laura Palmer, cross your heart and hope he dies
Stick a needle in his eye and you laugh while he lies
With your heart all open wide

Dropped her body in the sea
Girl you know you're like me

Girl you know you're like me
Cyanide when you breathe
Wrapped in plastic by the sea
Fire, walk with me
Girl you know you're like me

Lovely Laura Palmer...
Track Name: Flowers (You Fools)
Wiggle my too long fingers until they crack
Grab the microphone in my own damn hands
And I breathe when you breathe

We drank, we danced, your body whispered secrets, baby
You never let on and I never said it and everything was beautiful, I guess

I have written the words between her lips and my lips
I have pounded out the perverted percussion of her hips and my hips
And I breathe when you breathe
Say something damning, damn it.

We drank, we danced, your body whispered secrets, baby
You never let on and I never said it and everything was beautiful, I guess

You fools, her hair smelled like flowers
Track Name: The Fairy Tale Song
We run in circles with a pocket full of posies
We dance under the full moon
There's a show tonight in Brementown
Pull out my guitar, watch them all fall down

No one can climb my hair I'd sooner cut it off
I'll figure out my own way down
You'll never see me eating ugly poisoned fruit
When I wake believe I only ask for truth

So what do you want me to say?
I'll misquote your nursery rhymes anyway
Three times I remembered your name
Stamp your foot in the ground and dig your own grave

All the King's horses and all the King's men won't wall me darling I'm my own Prince Charming

I've gone over the river and through the dark and haunted wood
To find some blonde bitch in my bed
She stuttered 'Oh my what big teeth you have'
Her last words heard 'Off with her head'

So what do you want me to say?
I'll misquote your nursery rhymes anyway
Three times I remembered your name
Stamp your foot in the ground and dig your own grave

So what do you want me to say?
This isn't your nursery rhyme anyway
Three times I remembered your name
Stamp your foot in the ground and dig your own grave

All the King's horses and all the King's men are dead
Track Name: Spun Me Around
I've laid in her pastures and gone through the motions
Accepted distractions to hide my devotion
Felt bits of forever inside of her oceans
Spun three times in her moonlight
Spun me around three times

She is coming down
I can feel her now
Cast a circle out

I just want to find her
Lost in a forever forest
Painting portraits of myself so delicate and tragic
Leaving flowers on the graves of my past selves
I will walk forever, all alone adorned with wishes
And all adorned right past their missions
My eyes ache in need of vision
My bones break in need of fission

Got Gaia, Diana, Rhiannon on speed dial
Call them up for wisdom, to talk for awhile
Brought them in my circle when I was a child
Spun three times in their moonlight
Spun me around three times

She is coming down
I can feel her now
Cast a circle out

I just want to find her
Lost in a forever forest
Painting portraits of myself so delicate and tragic
Leaving flowers on the graves of my past selves
I will walk forever, all alone adorned with wishes
And all adorned right past their missions
My eyes ache in need of vision
My bones break in need of fission

Spun me around three times...
