Succubus 07:24
I dream of you in the night but in the dawn you fade your mouth on my skin... (Succubus) Each little death brings me closer to the end
3.
Siren 03:57
Sunshine the sun is in my eyes but the sun went away, I wanted it to stay I can still see it in my mind I can still taste it on my tongue Moonlight the stars in the sky so far away, like the stars in your eyes how can I breathe without this lung? how can I breathe without your lung Oxygen...
4.
Thirteen black birds (the beating of their wings...) came down from the sky (...grow still as they pass by) I feel them in my dreams I see them in my mind And you rise and you rise and you open up your eyes, and see dark auroras in the sky The beating of their wings grows still as they pass by the little boy's eyes I feel them in my dreams I see them in my mind dark auroras in the sky

Mothsong 03:47
There were holes inside, that let the rain come in and when the moon came creeping out, it's light came creeping in Hide from the moon, with it's cold silver eye why are these moths blindly drawn to your light? Rising out of the morning mist, an angel with no eyes and in it's arms it held a formaldehyde jar, with a strange creature trapped inside How can you leave me, when I'm so lost inside? this mist all around us, so distant your eyes So high, so high... We could live forever or will we go to heaven? or will we fall forever
7.
A black butterfly, I feel her death cold, white hands undress and untie and we wait... (and listen to the sound of their wings) Flowers that bloom in the dark never seek the light while others fold and wait for day and colour without pain and we wait (and listen till the sound of their wings... disappears...)
8.
Sleepless my sleep so quietly we breathe take it, or leave it but please believe me I watched you for some time from across the street I followed you home and I watched you sleeping I rise off the ground I didn't even notice this shadow it follows me it follows me wherever I go Go to sleep and dream My cold, lidless eyes and hands you cannot see I'm lost between two worlds I'm lost inbetween And I can't see and I can't breathe Sleepless my sleep so quietly we breathe
