Gilded Cage 02:36
We are like them quick with a thickening rage and you’ll find some of us all caught in the same gilded glistening cage With your knife and cowl hang in dangerous hours What will you do with the strangest of powers? you won’t be afraid, You won’t be derailed you won’t be afraid you be derailed, not like that... We are so like them lost and weary and often at waste and you’ll find some of us caught in the same stale deafening cease With you blinders left off in a tower that rises what will you do with yourself so divided you won’t be afraid, You won’t be derailed you won’t be afraid you be derailed you won’t be afraid, you are still so strange And who of will find it out And who of us will fail

I raised a flag in foreign lands waiting for my own war to end I took a love there and he took my hand but i spoke a language he could not understand and how does it end? We traveled in silence for years together Eating the food, we drank the wine Everyone sayin’ we looked “light as a feather” But silence is heavy and so is this time and how does it end? How does it end? How does it end?

St. Non 02:51
save me, Saint Non your well, your song here is my pride here is my grieving here is this hell I've been receiving so save me, Saint Non your well, your song “what water you drink” she says “on flesh you won’t feed” she says “Down on your knees you’re close to me... Where everything grows, where thing starts again. Deep in my ground the wealth of the spring is given for free...” and I said: “ Saint! Saint! Saint!, Saint! Old Gods! Old Gods, Wont you Wash Me?” save me, Saint Non it’s your well, it’s your song
