THE GATHERING (Instrumental)

RISE
I know the Devil's lady,
She don't look too good in white,
Keeps her dragons on the naked backs of all she might.
I know the Devil's coming,
Gonna help her with her detailed pattern changes every evening,
For a chance to spread the light.

One more kiss and we say goodbye to angels in her eyes
One more look and we kiss hello to Heaven.

Chance would be a fine thing,
Keeps her where she's teetering,
Knife-edge cold promotionals won't move her to a flight.

One more kiss and we say goodbye to angels in her eyes,
One more look and we kiss hello to Heaven.
In between the sky and earth I'm waiting for a rise,
In between this Hell on earth forever.

Screaming while she takes the poison,
Burns her throat and holds her arms,
Something painful isn't always Something that isn't nice.

If your witness isn't subtle,
Cast your witness still aside.
If your need is buried deep, Then bury me, come deep inside.

DARK ANGEL
Dark angel, give me life,
Dark angel, take us high,

Give me heaven, give me gold,
Take the living, take the old,
Take the knife, break the bone,
Feel the blade, and feel the stone.

Dark angel, a cold come through to us.

Dance into the darkness, a hand from southern skies,
Know which way the door will close and wait for the surprise.

And they will come,
And they will dream,
And they still live,
To take this heaven, And a cut of mine.

Dark angel, cut the skin,
Love the red delight,
Kneel at the moonsign,
Bless this gift for you,
Cry at the moonsign and bless this gift for you.

Seventeen sounds break the chains,
Three wheels, three worlds,
A kiss goodbye and a kiss for sorrow,
Fly fly fly away.

Dark angel, in the light of your eyes.
Dark angel, in the light of the moon.
Dark angel, in the light of the punishment.
Dark angel, can you believe,
Dark angel, in the splitting of a second your life did shine.

And they will come,
And they will dream,
And they still live,
To take this heaven, And a cut of mine.

HER HEAVEN
He saw through her eyes at the movement inside,
The thoughts that were dawning and falling outside,
The life she was leading, the people she knew,
The things that she loved, and the people she was married to.

To be free, I see your hands, Take these things away from me.
To be free, So I can see the sun.

She knew how to dream and how to become,
Everything she'd grown for, everything she was leaving for.
And learned how to see, with ice in her eyes,
Learned how to call, and smile with surprise.

To be free, I see your hands, Take these things away from me.
To be free, So I can see the sun.
To be free, To leave my soul, Break me down and carry me,
To be free, to feel the warmth burning me.

A line formed between her Heaven and her sins,
I'll never ever dream again as long as I'm with him,
But she knew she'd never leave alone, And never feel within,
That anything he could know could ever bring her back again.

To be free, I see your hands, Take these things away from me.
To be free, So I can see the sun.
To be free, To leave my soul, Break me down and carry me,
To be free, to feel the warmth burning me.

LUCY IS RED
Lucy is dressed in a long black hood
A gaze that blinds and a pointed stick
She talks about love like all the other songs

Lucy is dressed in a pointed hat
Black steel heels and a black skin bag
She changes colours on off days When she moves

But no one tells Lucy When black turns to tears
Yeah, no one tells Lucy What she needs to know

Lucy is red

Lucy doesn't speak to the other girls
She twists and turns like a haunted man
She's all alone and ugly and stupid and lost
Lucy can't run and Lucy can't hide
She gives it away and she doesn't know how
She pouts and fucks and sucks And screams and kills

But no one tells Lucy when black turns to tears
Yeah, no one tells Lucy What she needs to know

Lucy is red

She's falling away from herself
Like she's falling away from The world that's so bright
That it kills her

Lucy is red, Lucy is red, Lucy is red

LAMENT
All that's bright must fade
Like your hand on heart
All that's dark must hold
All that once was thrown
All that's bright must fade
Like your hand in this
All that's dark must hold
All that once was thrown

Too close for comfort
But it's all that I can do
Too hard to feel
But it's all that I can see
Too hard to sleep
This isn't made for two
Too much to say
But it's All that I can do to you

Lament, tearing me apart
Lament, tearing me away

All that's bright must fade
Like your hand in this
All that's strong will break
Any ground that's ever made
All that's bright must fade
Like my heart in this
All that's strong will break
Any ground that's ever made

Don't you know that summer's just killing with you
Don't you know that breath
Stains like a rose tattoo
Don't you know that winter's just killing time for you
Don't you know that love
Stains like a rose tattoo

All that's bright must fade Like my heart in this
All that's dark must hold
All that once was stone

ALONE
Sound of her soul,
She has sound in her soul,
She writhes for her heart,
In a foreign land of confusion.

Way above the earth, way above the crowd, Way past you.
Somebody's inside, Body's alive, Body is blind to you.

Love is dead, I said her love is dead,
And her siren red lights take the lonely ones,
And her siren red lights take the lonely ones

VAMPYRES CRY
She took my hand,
Pulled me down to fall to where the air was ice,
She thought she'd find some peace inside and borrowed what was left of mine.

Vampyre's cry,
It comes down to you.
Vampyre's cry,
Like God and always.

Starved of blood and sick of head,
Inside her broken doors and shatters,
Kneeling down, cutting sky, She cupped her hands and reached for life.

Wave come down and pushing through,
Carry her where she wants to go to,
Wave come down and pushing through,
Carry her, carry her.

Vampyre's cry. Pull me down.

CRYSANIA
In the cruel wind
In what happened in here
In the darkness
She thought she knew the world
In my cell on my floor It broke her apart And we pushed it inside Till she fell
In the sound of submission Of little decisions And some futile search For solution

And I still see tomorrow
And I still understand
Why I chose to believe
But you're so far away

Crysania believe in me

Don't you see how it works
The men kill their children So they never grow old
And I still have the strength To reach out for you But you're wrong again.
And I still have the strength To reach out for you But you're wrong again

Crysania believe in me

And I still believe to my heart
In your love of the dark your life
And your need for my blood
We can never return to the child in your picture
But still it's believing In something of yours

Crysania believe in me

I see stars I see angels I see living on earth And falling alone

Crysania believe in me

SIREN
She stands on the water on the lake of souls
The woman dressed in black,
She stands with her hair in the storm,
And her arms raised to the sky.
She wakes on the water on the lake in the forest,
The Devil and the woman in one,
She siren stares,
and siren sings.

And she's calling.

So I walked to her grave where the sea meets the sand,
And the moon was shining,
And the rain from the storm comes soaking through,
And I looked to her for the things she knew,

And she was calling.

Come to me.

She said,
It's time to face your master,
give me your soul,
Take down your cross for me and I'll throw it to the sky,
She painted heaven, a picture red and black,
Her sweetness, and for all our hearts,

And she's calling.

She gave me revelations,
Delivered me,
Waves drew back and this ship came crashing in.

And she's calling

AWAY
You make me a charm, gone and lost my way,
You hide from all you cannot say,
Shadow all that you should flaunt,
Bare it all up so I might see you,

Fall from grace.

Your light is alone and soft as scarlet,
Three people in one as she tries and she gives itů

Away,
And all I hear is away,
And all I see is away,
Then all right in here is the way.

You're as bright and as lonely as your lost guitar man,
Gonna keep it inside, gonna wait for his hand,
Gonna save it all up till you've wasted your scarlet,
Hope you never wake up to find your love gone

Away,
And all I hear is away,
And all I see is away,
Then all right in here is the way.

CLOSE
Josephine,
your eyes ring black,
But Josephine,
your thoughts are pure,
And Josephine drowns you.
And Josephine loves you.

You turn back blackened stone and cold,
Meet before the man you man you know,
Treasure in you,
There's treasure in you,
Heaven in you,
Lost surrounds.

And once before the black winds came,
Took your love on bended knee And close, close, close.

Took a hand out,
to a point,
Last is best of no returns.
No relief, no belief, No exchange delays or dispossession.

And once before the black winds came,
Took your love on bended knee And close, close, close.
And time again the black winds take you,
Shake your love and try to make you,
Close, close, close.
And time again the black winds shake you,
Break your love andf try to make you
close, close, close.
