INTRO Eeeeeee.... It's always five to midnight. (x8) That's the way it goes... CHORUS Every night you travel to the crypt... To the morgue again. Strapless shift and too-revealing slip... To sleep with him again. Coffin lid without a single word... That's the way it goes. Eating cake and having it preserved... Fucking wonderful. EXTRA HALF Every night you travel to the crypt... To the morgue again. Strapless shift and too-revealing slip... To sleep with skeletons. BUILD Always five to midnight (x4). BRIDGE Lights go down on sordid figures, roll the gruesome zombie pictures. You on screen, shot eighty-two, your fingers scraping concrete. Ravens come to pick the carnage, shot reveals a femme fatale. A monster maiden statuesque, a creature wrapped in velvet. CHORUS x3 OUTRO Always five to midnight (x12). -=- intro A note down to G note, pause ....

These fine feathers lost their wings. This old plumage looks neglected. These grand tail feathers fan. This wingspan found the ocean in the land. La la la, hey hey hey... CHORUS The game's not on cuz the players went home. And the game won't go if the players don't throw and... This old room is growing smaller. Years of listening, walls grow tired (and sleep). The shadows can't grow any longer now. Their textures multiply and lovingly entwine. La la la, hey hey hey... CHORUS The clouds withdraw without a warning. Sun shines through a tiny stained-glass window. Only love on Sunday morning. Only truth on Sunday afternoon. La la la, hey hey hey... CHORUS Don’t ever lose your wings... [Scratching/synthing chaos instrumental] These fine feathers lost their wings. -=- Notes: C# A C G# A G# chordal tension F#m C#m C#dom7 AmM7(G# top) (chord A C E G#) Find vocal melody with: F# G# B A Bass notes: C# D C# D C# G# then rests on E organ 9 A32

(Showing as it gets going. What a concussion - you can feel the claws inside yourself.) Come hither moon. Breakdown. Hoooo! Moonstone glows... supercharged... CHORUS Dive off the church spire, launch into air, declare, Come Hither Moon. I know it's draining, go down, come near and don't fear, Come Hither Moon. And as your lover wails a nightly dirge of tears, You're bent sideways from the music of such sweet disparity. CHORUS Dive off the church spire, launch into air, declare, Come Hither Moon. Sleep off the nightmare, to dig again this deepest hole we're in. And when you're running from a demon on the road, you can't hear your heartbeat slowing down with hounds upon your heels. BRIDGE Reach inside my coat, produce the antidote. Truth be told, I often fold. I covet things that I wish to hold. Such rotting hearts of goodly souls. The viper's bed, a poison sting, the dying wish, of a bird of prey, A metal pipe wrench sunny day. A night with you could realign my too dark eyes, with perfect drive. CHORUS Just dive off the church spire, launch into air, declare, Come Hither Moon. I know it's draining, come down in faith, and don't break, Come Hither Moon. Ya ya ya ya ya. Come down in faith, and don't break, Come Hither Moon. Ya ya ya ya ya. Come down in faith, and don't break, Come Hither Moon. For the lovers have a way with words. Breakdown You have no idea -- how lunar time, comes gradually, how lunar time, comes gradually. Gradually! Moonstone glows... supercharged... Hoooo! Come hither moon. (TALK + ECHO: Showing as it gets going. What a concussion - you can feel the claws inside yourself - on the only road out - as the fire doth final flits and promises bloom up inside you - scraping between the bridge - pure as you are noone, the shouted lights and coloured touch.) -=- picky HHs Abm gtr strums over bass BREAK: Gbm CHORUS: Abm B Dbm B Dbm B Eb7 VERSE: Gb Abm Eb7 E Gb Abm Eb7 E CHORUS VERSE BRIDGE: Abm Eb7/Bb E/B C#m Eb E (E dim) F# B (B dim) (B aug) E (E dim) C (C dim) <- chrom shift Cdim7+M7 (Edim7) Am F Abm E Am F Edom7/G# Abm Ebdom7 Ebdom7 CHORUS x2 TAIL Abm

Impervious 05:06
INTRO VERSE1 Floating through the drying ice, dressed in dark and close attire. Loves to make her movements flow, mouthing words she only knows. Closeness is a tired fuss, arms length lover loves the crush. Worship in the music box, she remains impervious. CHORUS1 (only first half) BREAKDOWN Until the blue of morning... VERSE2 Dancing on the minarettes, something strange inside of her. Loves to gouge the earth with bones, build a thing then burn it down. Distance kept from mortal souls, better men are bought and sold. Holding 'til the bitter last, not a look or touch or word. CHORUS2 (both parts) BRIDGE ||: Nothing... not a single thing will make her hot, wax melt down, no. Nothing... nothing makes an eyebrow twitch or sideways glance to give attention validation. :|| x2 No one... no one gets a single motion, tiny flick of something bitter. No way... not until you're dead and quiv'ring - even then it's not a sure thing. BUILD Every charm, every scheme, every throbbing inch of you will be rejected. VERSE3 Coming to the climax now, dragons rising beautiful. Pushing to a silver scream, all turns hissing boiler steam, Finally she does release, with massive heart and searing heat, Lies her lover, she herself, she alone does she entreat. CHORUS3 (both parts, full x3) Sweet and serpentine - impervious.... she will look right through you. Dancing all the time - impervious.... you will beg for mercy. Not a single sign - impervious.... she just keeps on dancing. Envies those who've died - impervious.... until the blue of morning. Sweet and serpentine - impervious.... no attention given. Dancing all the time - impervious.... frozen magnetism. Not a single sign - impervious.... apathetic vixen. So happily to cry - impervious.... you'll never know her secret. -=- INTRO VERSE1 CHORUS1 (HALF) BREAKDOWN VERSE2 CHORUS2 BRIDGE BUILD VERSE3 CHORUS3 (x3)

Vampire Car 02:53
VERSE 1 Fast like fury, white like lightning, blazing past without a driver. Midnight rolls with custom plates. Hub caps roll at break neck pace. Engine revving, building speed, taking off the living edge. She wants to take you into gravel. push that fucking accelerator. Mighty taste for getting high, monoxide and bigger miles. Shooting off for human blood. Getting off in darkness coming to your path to pick you up. Feline auto piston pump. Sucks you dry and toss your carcass. Drains the blood in winter races. CHORUS Vampire car (x4) VERSE 2 Flying past in white enamel, ironic with this dark interior. Kicking sub and racing pistons, soon you’ll be among her minions. Close your eyes and feel the leather. Let her ravish, all will travel. She’s the queen of latex glovework. Dripping kilometers bloodwork. CHORUS VERSE 3 Fast like fury... accelerator. CHORUS -=- VERSE 1 D rock chugs etc CHORUS B Bb A (D drone) The D drone stabilizes the song somewhat. VERSE 2 D (C E) riff

Storyline 04:34
VERSE 1 Painted town with frowns on hardcore. Here in the night., in the night, in the night. Cold in the club, folded cheer with a knife, she's a dame with a lime, got an ear for life. He is summer sweet with the tigers on the beach, and the dear long tongue, the DLT. Dear the light hits you right with the fire in your eyes. Coming here in the night, in the night, in the night. CHORUS 1 Everything runs, the storyline's good, but something ain't right, growin' lost in the room.... the storyline's good, but everything's wrong. (for it...) VERSE 2 Pure it sips karm' where the key would go wide on the lost land, mmm, let, horn and boilin'. hands intertwined with the people in the line yelling lower now shiver with a low blow naughty draw Rolling smoke ring when the skin hits the eye flicker nail up toy now here with the royal. Table setting there - we'll be feasting on thin air, heading there, in an hour, just and hour, just an hour. EXTRA Not many things clash with young Scottish hotties they're the cream of the world, and the hotties know they're plotting things. CHORUS 2 Got her clothes and she rose, and the storyline run, darling run, go my heroine ...is the storyline run... more than one? Is the storyline good?, it's dirt, it's cruel -- but it ain't any good -- you cut out every bad word to get yourself fixed -- you can't -- you have to get yourself a world class film editor. VERSE 3 Rolling into town, bet they're sure with the prowling eyeball ...turn, ...hot reflections looking dare defying. Figures getting fevers while they flirt in the smoking room. Here in the night. in the night, in the night. Shimmer summer warm as the rain begins to pour, and the dear long tongue, the DLT. Dear the light hits you right with the fire in your eyes. Coming here in the night, in the night, in the night. CHORUS 3 Here, will you sign? Now, here, please, singing on laws, gone away, for a pause. C'mon. Is the storyline fine, carried away, for the last time... is the storyline run? published and done for this miserable rag? Is the story line sane, kindled and razor sharp? Everything runs, the storyline's good, but something ain't right, growin' lost in the room.... The storyline's good, but everything's wrong... Written in the pages of your life... Here in the night, in the night, in the night. Tearing up the pages of your life... Written in the pages of your life... Tearing up the pages of your life... (Photocopy pages of your life... Dog ear up the pages of your life...) -=- verses: all major "rock" F Eb Bb Ab bass important: Eb>F, D>Eb, Ab>Bb, G>Ab>G guitar shots trade with claps on lines 2 and 4. chorus: Eb Bb Dm Eb Bb F STRUCTURE: INTRO VERSE1 CHORUS1 (length x1) VERSE2 HOTTIES (one cycle) CHORUS2 (length x2) VERSE3 CHORUS3 (length x3) OUTRO (four cycles) HARD ENDING

We occupy vestibule, nightly. make more of what you hear relax with ancient energy where every breath is infinite the proof is in the theory.
