Track Name: Succubus
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
Track Name: Siren
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...
Track Name: Dark Auroras In The Sky
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
Track Name: Mothsong
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
Track Name: Black Butterfly
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...)
Track Name: The Eater Of Dreams
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
