Track Name: The Princess and the Pea
If this be ecstasy divine
I must confess that I have seen it many times
As prayers from parted lips emerge
With parted thighs and urgent cries a tender heart is turned
Every princess needs her pea....
To work it's way into her spine for all eternity

You are privaledged I'm sure
To be so distant And demure
Pure of thought and free
To chase your curiosities

You are comforted, no doubbt
To never be without
Companions that will keep you free
Of life's complexities

Every princess needs her pea....
To work it's way into her spine for all eternity

You sampled all the boys and them wanting
You sampled all the girls and found them tragically vain

Refrain, refrain, this priestly virtue
Maintain, maintain, this little death's delight
Now entertain the thought that might defeat you
Sustain this moment lest you suffocate on silent woes that permeate the night
Suffering the throes of holy light

If this be exctasy divine
I must confess that I have seen it many times

Every princess needs her pea....
To work it's way into her spine
Define her fragile magesty
Identify the royal source of all of her perversities
And keep the royal candle burning deep into the night

Sensation burns, it twists and binds [Sensation bright?]
Far less so than the void it leaves behind
Track Name: Fireflies
upon this swiftly tilting planet
young creatures struggling to stand
damp bodies glistening and gleaming, seeking out purchase
Bright feathers fanning, spreading over the land
And night we herald with our voices
Tangled melodies ephemeral and strange
To greet dark shadows flicking and dodging into the darkness
And grace their hungry vision, naked and shamed
And we are fireflies
We are scouring the landscape for our friends
And we will walk this road forever
We will never make amends
And we are young immortals
We are challenging the titans to this throne
And we are in this fight together
We will never walk alone
And such a flame around which we are reeling
A shifting axis struggling to align
the landscape shuddering and heaving, lurching and sliding
Searching and calling, shrieking divine
And we are new
We are unmade in daylight
now subdued
drifting slowly out of range
Silent and shaking, speaking only in whispers
Rattled and shaken, empty and strange
And we are fireflies
We are scouring the landscape for our friends
And we will walk this road forever
We will never make amends
And we are young immortals
We are challenging the titans to this throne
And we are in this fight together
We will never walk alone
And I am in ecstasy
Mouth agape eyes roll back in my head
And yours is shrieking breath inside of me
(roll ahead, roll ahead)
