EVERYTHING IS BURNING

One, two, three I force myself to be still
Haunted by hate inseminated by greed, corruption
And neoconservative pilgrims
Your alchemy, alchemy can’t help me when
Everything is burning

I dream gunfire but I’m not sleeping
The bloodshed, the lies
Everything is burning

In this heat I believe there is no future
Control and fear killing queers, Santa Claus, dictators
I was God, I was love, now I’m bleeding
Oh alchemy, alchemy can’t help me when
Everything is burning

I dream gunfire but I’m not sleeping
I fear outside
Everything is burning

DEAD IN THIS HOUSE

You’re in the dark
Just you and anger
Your oldest friend
Your closest lover
Show them your art
Show them your alchemy
Your addictive viral
Euphoric raging need

Kick down the door
Kick through the pain
You’ve been talking to the wall
Everybody is dead in this house

Kick down the door
Kick through the pain
You never wanted to be born
Everybody is dead in this house

You think too much
Mind over muscle
You keep seeing those dancing stars
They’re all just idiots and whores
You cannot trust
The world’s just trouble
Any chance you get – destroy
Take everything back to the start

Kick down the door
Kick through the pain
You’ve been crawling up the wall
Everybody is dead in this house

Kick down the door
Kick through the pain
You never wanted to be born
Everybody is dead in this house

TRIGGERS

Everywhere triggers
The screaming crows
People inside me
People I don’t want to know

Everywhere haters
Idiot heroes
The sun comes today but
The devil comes tomorrow

My whole life I thought
I would know what to say
But the darkness of reality
Has stolen that away

You may lock your doors
You will never keep them out
Everywhere triggers
Everywhere drought

Everywhere killing
The storm never ends
Oil fields of fire
And fucking head-chopping mad men

Everywhere fucking
Hyper-arousal
Small town cages and boredom-bred sorrow
And northern-bred hooligans

We work for freedom
The freedom to be
Proud consumers with all our
Perfect little trophies

You may lock your doors
You will never keep them out
Everywhere triggers
Everywhere drought

There’s orchids around me
Twisted and blood-drenched
Everywhere chaos
Freak shows and drug fiends

I see the world out there
through my titanium god
Everywhere triggers
Feeding the black dog

The shadows are talking
In razor sharp tongues
Over in the corner there
I mistook them for someone

THE VOID

You took me on, you forced my hand again
Holding the rope, holding everything
Only the bravest girl would sit through this
Only the darkest German confidence

I guess if I’m breathing this is not the end
I guess if I love myself I have a friend
Oh and if there’s nothing left I have your voice
Talking me into sleep, into the void

We laid in the sand, the salt breeze in our eyes
Telling our stories with unspoken signs
Waves of old tension still controlling us
Waves of a new life slowly calming us

ETERNITY

I think I cannot fight
The arrogant child
Inside me

The habits and the crossed wires
Unstable desires
Are digging so deep

I think I am unsound
Because the baggage I carry around
Is a contagious disease

So come
Eternity
Come, come eternity
Complete me

And though I thought that I
That I would always find
A secret place to sleep

That I could just create
My own little perfect fate
But it’s so incomplete

Now I look out into the stars
Into the endless desert calm
To try to tame the beast

Eternity, can you complete me?

SCARS

And though I have these scars
I hold no grudges, it’s my destiny
I got so used to winning
And now I do my best baby
To take it on the chin

I’ve made mistakes
But I’m not haunted
Because your love gives me the strength

Sometimes I lose my focus
And my core beliefs just overpower me
But the truth is I need others
To find the will
To find the point in anything

TURNING CRIMSON

Oh my am I turning crimson
Thinking of all the criminal minds and blood spilt
Time to scream, time to pay
But I don’t want to pay

Ill-informed wills to power
Pushing children and mothers to murder
At last, at least some reaction
Some reaction

I will lock the doors to this house
Keeping the vermin out until I feel safe
Until I feel something
I feel nothing
