Stand still, love, let me take your photograph I promise I’ll release you and I’ll take no more than that Don’t you listen to the victims, don’t you know I’ve been framed Don’t you shudder in the darkness, don’t you need a little fame All the lies your life has ever shown will fade to black and crumble Lay a little low, unfilter all your childhood fears Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know Lasting love won’t develop every time But in between the empty scenes I’ll fill more than your mind Won’t you come a little closer, won’t you ever come around Won’t you wind a little tighter, won’t you bend until you’re bound All the lies your life has ever shown will fade to black and crumble Lay a little low, unfilter all your childhood fears Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know Don't look down or Heed the sound of City lights or Tokyo nights I'll Take you where They'll Never care I'll Make you weep and See the deep All the light your life has ever known will brighten your exposure Lay a little low, unhinder all your darkest years Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know

King, strong and cruel, people plead, gods help us Man, wild untamed, to stop the king, the two will go journeying Quest, long and hard, to the forest hill, slay the giant demi-god Dreams, fire storms, raging bulls, heroes see only victory Chorus Fierce giant, bound by prison winds, "beg for mercy," man boasts No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him Goddess lusts for king, he turns away, ignites her wrath Bulls, from heavens high, fights in vain, none can stand before the king Bridge Tonight I dreamed of gods Seeking vengeance on mortals Why must we pay for their transgressions? Why must I be the one to suffer? Chorus Dark fever, draining soul, prayers for the death of a warrior No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him King, grieves for man, fears his life, the gods are a fickle thing Seeks eternal life, survivor of, a flooded history Hears his tale of woe, through endless storms, the gods then smiled on him King, stay awake for seven days, and you will be young again Chorus Eyes heavy, sleep taking hold, the king will dream No hiding, no escaping death, but given one last chance On oceans floor, plant of life, stolen by the serpent's night No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him Outro We pay for all transgressions I am the one to suffer I am the one

In through your window the sky will fall. You'll trap the stars in jars and line them along your walls. As the moonlight fills the veins beneath your skin, You'll hear us knocking, oh, but you won't let us in. Because you've got no friends, And you've got no heartbeat. Your insides are rotten now. So there's nothing to fix. But you said it often, before you were lost, That it's only a day. That it's only a day. But now you're a monster, and your backbone is soft. Because you threw it away. Because you threw it away. You called me out; I shrugged you off. I don't have the time to watch you bash in all their skulls. 'cause there's a new boss in town, his heart is black, but his hands can reach through anything. Stick your head in the ground. You might just dodge the guns. But I'm not your friend. And I will not fix you. My insides are hollow now. So you're all on your own. But I said it often, before we were lost. That it's only a day. That it's only a day. But now I'm a monster, and my blood all runs cold. Because I threw it away. Because I threw it away. But now we've forgotten. And we've sold our blue skies. But there's nothing to say. We'll be gone in a day. And yeah, you can't take it with you. But I can sure try. Now there's nothing to say. I'll be gone in a day.

It's four in the morning, the end of December I'm writing you now just to see if you're better New York is cold, but I like where I'm living There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening. I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert You're living for nothing now, I hope you're keeping some kind of record. Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair She said that you gave it to her That night that you planned to go clear Did you ever go clear? Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder You'd been to the station to meet every train And you came home without Lili Marlene And you treated my woman to a flake of your life And when she came back she was nobody's wife. Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth One more thin gypsy thief Well I see Jane's awake -- She sends her regards. And what can I tell you my brother, my killer What can I possibly say? I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you I'm glad you stood in my way. If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free. Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes I thought it was there for good so I never tried. And Jane came by with a lock of your hair She said that you gave it to her That night that you planned to go clear -- Sincerely, L. Cohen

Mutual sight, Mutual sound Mutual struggle, for shared ground It`s safe, to say, they`ll try to take from me I`m just another one for them to break down Steeped in denial, the daily grind Dream of a world for me and my kind It`s safe in the alternative reality So stick your standards where the sun doesn`t shine They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say Promise the world then take it from you anyway They`ll break you down making your vision fadeaway It`s time to go: get outta my space Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind Be anyone, do anything I`d ever want to try Time doesn`t exist here, I will never die Explain the reasons, Explain the rhymes It`s not required, inside our minds It`s safe to try, no need to justify Or take their guilt trip at the end of the line. They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say Promise the world then take it from you anyway They`ll break you down making your vision fadeaway It`s time to go: get off of my case Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind Be anyone, do anything I`d ever want to try Time doesn`t exist here Slip into a world where the air I breathe is mine There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind Come with me into it and you know what you will find Time doesn`t exist here, I will never die (My Own Little World) They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say It`s time to go: get out of my face

'twas the twelving day of Everfair when fell my maid of raven hair beneath her cloven standard of the wren and damn that roiling goblin horde we'd almost slain the overlord but i could never roll an elf again "The Queen of Bells and Battle-Downs" she wore the title like a crown Foes so deep a man would drown, but she still stood alone a princess and a duchess both and sworn to nine prestigious oaths, her duties, they would take her to that twisting spire of stone Against his tower, a silhouette She called like a coronet And the green sea of his armies burst from warrens far below The pacts he'd made with demonkind Had rent his thin and tattered mind And hellish princedoms occupied the arrow he let go They took her through the crowded square And laid her at the temple stair The sorcelled barb of Arudair beyond their healing arts there stands a circlet on her brow that turns the blades of men around But if Belruel could hear me now This song would pierce her heart 'twas the twelving day of Everfair when fell my maid of raven hair beneath her cloven standard of the wren damn that roiling goblin horde! and damn their hell-bound the overlord! but i could never roll an elf again
