Stones Vaccinate my loneliness with cigarettes and wine Then invite the ghosts inside to help me keep the time I’m between the lines, could you meet me for a spell We will honour the deities who keep us well Digging hands into the earth to liberate the stones Whisper to them secrets, let them hold it in their bones Offer deeply, stories and your messages We will leave behind more than words and sediment And so, to stones, we return once more We become the pendulum Maiden, mother, crone Think of all the others who have followed us this far A path above a sea of moving mineral and ore Oh the canyon becomes our rocky fingerprint With the hot embrace of fire steel and flint Dream of all the others who’ve traveled here before Metamorphic rock and metal in our core And so, to stones, we return once more

Vampires Sure are a lot of vampires in here Lingering on my tongue A lot of vampires in here They wanna get some Feasting on my bleeding heart I don’t want to be a part Of this game Sure are a lot of vampires in here All cut and concise A lot of vampires in here They don’t want to play nice So i won’t play nice Sure are a lot of vampires in here Dark, vile, energy suckers A lot of vampires, my dear Crass, petty motherfuckers A lot of spitting A lot of spite I won’t take it Not tonight I won’t play nice And you can take a trip Down the river styx sticks any day Get on your big black horse I will feel no remorse as you fade You should have played Nice Sure are a lot of vampires in here Sure are

No Harm The devil never did me no harm In fact he’s the only one Who stood by me all this time A reminder of what it means to be human Look here now, don’t look back This moment is the right track It’s the cycle of death and life Move to the strains of his pipe The devil never did us no harm Giving a sun to the moon Spirited bringer of light Before dogma made its debut Allies, friends and lovers are we Shame and guilt and sin cannot be A fawn in the pasture of chance A partner when I just need to dance The colour of sin is in your head You’re the one who painted his face red

Oh, Tim Oh Tim, they just don’t understand you Your philosophy and LSD The professors they all reprimand you For experimental psychiatry Oh Tim, they just don’t understand you You scare them with radical thoughts The senior cadets do command you Be silent and do what we’ve taught With proper set and setting, you can be free and unconfined In order to use your head, you have to go out of your mind Oh Tim, they just don’t understand you Eccentricities and PHD Your prescription is taken, the mind is awakened Reality’s constructs are shaken A man with a gavel once named you The most dangerous man in world You then re-frame and reclaim the name Of dissident philosopher You’d rather starve in the gutter than be ordinary and resigned In order to use your head, you have to go out of your mind Oh Tim, they just aren’t understanding Think for yourself and find what you seek Authority is a pill best taken With a grain of salt and tongue in cheek Yes, with a grain of salt and tongue in cheek

If You Were My Monster A many headed, many armed beast Stood outside your door Like a mangled mix of Cerberus, Kraken and hydra tales of yore The heads, they yelled and screamed With some arms, they raised a fire Feeling righteous behind their revulsion Feeling protected under their spire With werewolf pack mentality They beat the walls of your home But if you were my monster, I’d unlock the door and we’d roam If you were my monster Whether horn or fang Or hoof or tail Dark shape shifter Beyond the pale, Stingers, scales, Claws or wings I’d see them as Strange and beautiful things… A strange and unkempt beast, they say And if so, blessed be For how much do you differ from they? How much do you differ from me? A parade of bizarre entities Indulged in their own intrigue Feeding their god, not the inner beast When the creature is hungry The unfamiliar gives them fear, Petty judgment, deafened ears But if you were my monster I would listen, dear. If you were my monster

The Emerald Horizon Well the air is green with worry And the mud’s been losing sleep And the horses and the cats are running toward the barn Tell your father Tell your neighbour Tell the fortune teller This might be what you’ve been running away from Storm’s a brewing, get inside Lock the cellar door up tight The dust is kicking up a fuss It wants to be a part of us Destiny has been a-flirting With the man behind the curtain Is he a wizard or a god? You can tell me that you exist Come on baby you can’t resist But i know that you’re a champagne spiritualist I know there is so much more than this Well, the emerald horizon Is the things she’s got her eyes on Arrested by the sweet seduction of sleep Alert the papers Call your mother It’s a horse of a different colour Ride on his green back to the emerald horizon All of our minds have gone to bliss From the ruby poppy’s kiss Sent us spinning into dreaming Of an old black and white scene
