Track Name: Marked For Death
MARKED FOR DEATH
it was right that we did meet each other in each other’s eyes
it was right that we did see each other in our shadow sides
it was wrong then too that crazy love, loves crazy as it does
and each of us and both of us so crazy; as it was

who else is going to love someone like you that’s marked for death
who else is going to be with you when you breathe your last
who else is going to take my place and hold and keep you safe/sane
who else is going to stay

you were right on time to break your head and make the death bed
you were right on time to crash those galaxies and flat-line
you were right on time to make the light inside of me a life
you were right on time to meet me, crazy love, and watch us die

who else is going to love someone like me, that’s marked for death?
who else is going to be with me when i breathe at all?
who else would ever take your place and hold and keep me safe?
who else would ever stay?
Track Name: Protection
PROTECTION
oh heaven sends him down to me
and he’s got everything I'll ever need
just for 16 days, i let him tie down
the frailest part of my body

i am small but in your arms
you are colder in your heart
i am worthless in your arms
but you offer this protection no one else has given me

you just keep talking down to me
taking all of my hair pulled back
i gave him 16 days
i let him choke out the frailest part of my body

hush now, here there is no trouble
quiet down, you know that i have got you
but I'm spinning out into a bottle
where’s my connection to you
it’s my protection
Track Name: Medusa
MEDUSA
Medusa, nobody knows me like you
failing forgiveness for all of the things you see
you say: “nobody ever will touch you again”
you say: “nobody ever will love you”

for your eyes need us to be made so white
all my life: I'm nothing

Medusa, you come looking like Mother Teresa
you come looking for daughters to please you
you come blind
Medusa, you want all of the world just to need you
you want everyone here just to see you
you make us blind
you say: “nobody ever,ever will touch you again”
you say: “nobody ever, ever will love you”

you shot me down like you shot me down
Track Name: Hand of God
HAND OF GOD
I am a desperate love, always am needing it
I wish the Hand of God would come
and relieve me of this way
I can’t touch anyone
to touch without feeling
somehow is always wronged
to those who receive me in this way
come, bring your sons and let them see
come and lay them down in front of me
I can’t do anyone right, I used to be somehow better
some are just born to night
some wear the scarlet letter
I wish the Hand of God
would cover the faces and cover the traces
of lovers lost
I wear the colors of Babylon
into a world, dressed as the girl I know is gone
I was true, I sang violins, touched and the like
so slowly, the soft singing will leave you in time
look through me now, see violence replaces the light
I wish the Hand of God
would cover the faces and cover the traces
of lovers lost
I wear the colors of Babylon
into a world, dressed as the girl
I know is gone
Track Name: Heaven
HEAVEN
forever want to lay with you
wanting dust to dust, to fade out
you’re gone
the only church I’ll ever see
are paper hands calling me
“come home, you’re done”
I never was too pretty, just a spirit in this city now
with no one at all
but I’ve never come so far alone
into something beautiful of my own design
Heaven, I’m done
if one and one and one are three:
something in this life I’ll never see
baby is gone
the only church I’ll ever know
is in the Earth, the ground below me says:
“come home now, you’re done”
I never was a pretty thing,
always fight and sometimes scream
for nothing at all
and I've never come so far alone
into something beautiful of my own design
Heaven, I’m done
Oh John, I can see Fire
I can see your Work, the Flames grow higher
I can See - i can See - i can See
I can See in Heaven
Track Name: So, Come
SO, COME
we forever were changed
in this room where I have been living
and in these years it’s been dangerous
but I cannot help from receiving
all the Spirits here they all say:
“for now you must suffer so that we may live”

all the Saints come down
I wish they would now

thought in time it has changed us all
the room itself, it is breathing
we forever are chained
in what we have done, we have won
we have given to the spirits here,
who still call upon me,
say “suffer so that we may live”
So, come
take back the old way
take what’s not right
take back the unborn child
take it back
Track Name: Furious Angel
FURIOUS ANGEL
you are pretty because your shotgun fills me up
you are pretty because your knife twist lets my blood
you, the one that I love
you always were because -
if I send you my army only you can disarm me
if you won’t have me or bring me your love,
furious angels reign death from above onto me
you’re the one that I love, you always were because
I was made of a storm, only you could bring me home
hold out for what?
I know I’m dreaming on and on
hold out for why?
we’ve said our last goodbye
if you won’t have me or carry in rings
everything broken is fixed when you sing to me
“Oh Love, In Love”
Track Name: Real Big Sky
REAL BIG SKY
when They broke your body
They broke your mind
but with broken spirits you have always tried
I watch you sleep,I watch you fade
I will always keep the light on even though you can’t stay
and you sing to me, you say
I don’t want to be awake when It takes me
but I can’t wait to see you smile on the Other Side
I can’t wait to kiss the face of The Big Sky
won’t you stay here for a while with me, my Child
and you’re losing your vision, and you’re going blind
what starts out in the night time follows you in the morning light
I watch you sleep,I watch you fade
I will keep the light on as you change even though you can’t stay
and you sing to me, you say
I don’t want to be awake when It takes me
I won’t ever change my mind
I can’t wait to kiss the face of The Big Sky
I don’t want to say goodbye to you
My Child
