Come end of life, come suicide, close every door. Insides are broken. Tell me why you've broken me. Mother of Crow, save me. Oh Mother, come to me. Oh, Mother, show your face to me. Oh, Mother, we are your children, all of your children. Why won't you come to me? At the end of this hall, sits an idol on the wall. Making promises to call you forward. It turns to watch you pray. To watch your hope fade away, fade away. Fade until you say my insides are broken. Tell me why you've broken me. Oh Mother, come to me. Oh, Mother, show your face to me. Oh, Mother, we are your children, all of your children. Why won't you come to me? Demons crawl out from all of these walls. What am I supposed to do. We're dying, despite us praying. Mother, where are you? Mother of Crow, where are you? Mother of Crow, we need you. Mother of Crow, where are you? Why won't you? Oh Mother, come to me. Oh, Mother, show your face to me. Oh, Mother, we are your children, all of your children. Why won't you come to me?

Slice through my layers and look what's inside me. Find all my secrets. My zen of corium. Take off my skin, wrap it snuggly around you. Hide it or cure it. I won't be around anyway. Soothe me with your loving smile. Numb me into silence, don't you know? If you wanna know, let me go, your gentle knife will numb me. Corium. If you wanna know, let me go, your gentle knife will numb me. Corium. If you wanna know, let me go, your gentle knife will numb me. Corium. If you wanna know, just let me go, your gentle knife will numb me. Release me from corium. Now that you've got me on the ground. I know my way around the pain, the flames, where heavens fail. You can do what you want, I'm already there. I'm already there. Soothe me with your love, oh my. I'm already there. Numb me into silence, don't you know. Break open bones to see what's there. Is it just another mystery? If you wanna know, let me go, make your blade sing. Corium. If you wanna know, let me go, make your blade sing. Corium. If you wanna know, let me go, make your blade sing. Corium. If you wanna know, just let me go, this gentle knife will numb me. Numb me, numb me. Release me from corium. Take all my skin but it dies with me. Wrap it around you but the power. From corium. So many days, it's time to be free. So wrap me around you and come, come, come with me. When I go, you'll go, my gentle knife will numb you. Corium. When I go, you'll go, my gentle knife will numb you. Corium. When I go, you'll go, my gentle knife will numb you. Corium. When we go, we go for broke, this gentle knife will numb me, numb me, numb me. Set me free.

All of these bones. Can you tell me who they were. And what of all of the skin. I can't recall how it feels. Take my insides apart. Read the stars in my viscera. All of the time. I can't remember where it went. And what of all that you told me. I can't recall what I know. Don the cloak I pretend I'm a believer. But did I ever want to know? Make my prophecy. Show my fortune come. Tell my future. Tell me, Boneshaker. Will tomorrow come? All of the stars. Can you tell me why they cry? And do you know why we hide? I can't recall how to fight. Cut the innocent one. Purity gives you all the clarity. Why do we care? Do you remember when we locked the door, said our hope is here. Don the cloak, I pretend I'm a believer. Make my prophecy. Show my fortune come. Tell my future. Tell me, Boneshaker. Break my prophecy. Show my fortune come. Tell my future. Tell me, Boneshaker. Will tomorrow come? Give me my prophecy. Tell me all you know. Tell me my future. Tell me, boneshaker. Come tomorrow. Make my prophecy. Show my fortune come. Tell my future. Tell me, Boneshaker. Will tomorrow come?

Do you recall this scar? The final one, you said. Do you apologize for every stitch you placed in vain. Can you hand me that jar, it's about to break. It holds all of my pain but you said. Just call me Doctor. Don't be mistaken. I'm your creator, your re-maker. Tack on me some skin, mount on me wings. Are there not too many limbs. Come, doctor, do me again. Tack on me some skin, build a new smile. Are there not too many limbs. Come, Doctor, do me again. Do you recall this blade? The final cut, you said. Do you admire all the beauty here? This part and that part, I fell apart. Can you hand me that box, it's about to fall. It holds all of my heart, but you said. Just call me doctor. Don't be mistaken. I'm your creator, your re-maker. Tack on me some skin, mount on me wings. Are there not too many limbs. Come, doctor, do me again. Come, doctor, breed my scars. Tack on me some skin, build a new smile. Are there not too many limbs. Come, Doctor, re-build me. Tack on me some skin, mount on me wings. Are there not too many limbs. Come, doctor, do me again. Come, doctor, breed my scars. Tack on me some skin, build a new smile. Are there not too many limbs. Come, Doctor, re-build me.

Why can't I feel me. Why am I so far away from myself. This delightful face cut into tiny pieces. Why am I so far away from myself. This delightful face, cut into tiny pieces. Come the fabricated Mary Machine. The woman of your dreams. She’s a dismembered mannequin, can someone put her together. Come the fabricated Mary Machine. The woman of your dreams. She’s a dismembered mannequin, can someone please put her together. Take this piece of my flesh. Burn to fit another makeshift bitch. Assemble these pieces. Take this piece of my flesh. Burn to fit another makeshift bitch. Assemble these pieces. Come the fabricated Mary Machine. The woman of your dreams. She’s a dismembered mannequin, can someone put her together. Come the fabricated Mary Machine. The woman of your dreams. She’s a dismembered mannequin, can someone please put her together. No amount of scars can tell you what it’s like to be broken. So please put me together. I bleed, I fall. Away, come lust, come desire, spoilt meat and defile. (I bleed, I fall) Take this piece of me. Put it with the others. Put me together. So please. (I bleed, I fall( Put me together. I bleed, I cry. So I'm a fabricated Mary machine. The woman in your dreams. I'm a dismembered mannequin. Can someone put me together. I'm a fabricated Mary Machine. Living in your dream. Just a dismembered mannequin. Can someone please put me together.

He dreams with open eyes. His tears are red in this light. He prays with all of his might but in his dreams. His soul, come dark, come night. He just wants to be holy. Holy, see all the glory. Holy lash after lash will make him worthy. Make him worry. Crow's gentle scourge bring him delight. So give him another dream. Put him out of his misery. One more dream. Let him descend to heaven. Let him descend to heaven. One final dream for Severin. With eyes larger than he could see. In the centre a temple, a promise. A harvest that may never be but in his dreams. His soul come dark, come night. His body wants to be holy. Holy, in all of its glory. Holy scar after scar will make him worthy. Make him worthy. Crow's gentle scourge bring him delight. So give him another dream. Put him out of his misery. One more dream. Let him descend to heaven. Let him descend to heaven. One final dream for Severin. Give him another dream. Give him a reason to believe. Give him a scar, a book to read, then let him be. My Severin. Give him another dream. Give him a reason to believe. Give him a scar, a book to read, then let him be. My Severin. Takes on the sin of the world. My Severin. Purify, letting his blood, searching the sky. My Severin. Takes on the sin of the world. He doesn't know how. My Severin doesn't know why. One final dream, it's.. Severin dreams. So give him another dream. Put him out of his misery. One more dream. Let him descend to heaven. Let him descend to heaven. One final dream for Severin.

In the dark There's silences we all can feel. Like howls through eternity. Cries we all ignore. Call "Where's the predator?" Hiding on wasted fields. Fear the predator. Dreaming of living prey. Run the predator. Hunter, release me. Kill the predator. Mistaken, for shame. Mistaken for the future, it's the end of time. It's the time when wicked men smile. It's the time when predators die. And why do prophecies lie to you. It's the time when wise men cry. It's the time for never you mind. And why do fairytales lie to you. I In the dead there's stillness that we can't undo. It howls through eternity. Naked to all that we are. A soul of a castaway. And always it's about pain. Forgotten, our names. Mistaken for sane. Mistaken for the future it's the end of time. t's the time when wicked men smile. It's the time when predators die. And then the prophecies lie to you. It's the time when wise men cry. It's the time when people say, Die for me predator. Won't you die for me. Where's the . Hiding in wasted fields. Fear the predator. Dreaming of living prey. Run the predator. Hunter, release me. Kill the predator. Gone can't be undone. There's the predator. Gone can't be undone. Fear the predator. Gone can't be undone. Run the predator. Gone can't be undone. Gone can't be undone. Gone can't be undone. It's the time when wicked men smile. It's the time when predators die. And then the prophecies lie to you. It's the time when wise men cry. It's the time when people say, Die for me predator. Won't you die for me.

There's voices in your dreams. There's promises of a new realities. Come lay your praise upon me. Come discover how to. Buy a ticket to the afterlife, just in case you fall. Tell me the price for Salvation Catering for resurrection. Tell me the weight of your glory. In a word, in a dream, and it's on you. To pay your way there. That feeling of a lost eternity. Tormenting of the one that wants to be. The only love that matters. The only death to count for. Another ticket to the afterlife just Tell me the price for Salvation Catering for resurrection. Tell me the weight of your glory. In a word, in a dream, and it's on you to pay your way there. In case you fall. Beasts of burden carry your soul To the afterlife. The aftermath of living. In a silent world you carry your song. To the forevermore, in a foreign land, the word you seek is why. Your burden is a beast. Pulling the weight of glory. To the afterlife. The aftermath of living. Just living on. Just living on. Tell me the price for Salvation Catering for resurrection. Tell me the weight of your glory. In a word, in a dream, and it's on you. To pay your way there. Tell me the price for Salvation Catering for resurrection. Tell me the weight of your glory. Just a word in a dream and there's nothing but you. Forever more.

But here comes the way we lie. Inside the frame we are all believers. In heaven and hell, fairytales. Inside the frame we all perceive all that we are. From all that we were. So here comes the way we lie. We paint only in the colours we are. And here comes the way we cry. We speak only to the voices that we can make our own. Avatar. Inside the frame we are all complete. We're beautiful people. Mythical beasts. And inside the frame we get what we deserve. Because we think we are all. But here comes the way we lie. We paint only in the colours we are. And here comes the way we cry. We speak only to the voices that we can make our own. Make our own.

All these times I've been around the world, I thought. I could whisper in your silent moments where I see. Am I still what you adore? Is this what I came for? Why, every time I smile, all the spirits shy away from me. Lovers fall apart. And every time I cry, I drown the ones that came for me. And I don't remember what I came for. Every time you pray. And every time you die. Every time is the last time. And I don't know how to take you home. Take you home. I am the temple, the centre of you, I thought. I could touch you in your dream. I am the voice in your dream. I am the silence, I scream. I am the reaper, I weep. This dream was never called for. To make it right, to make you whole. Somebody unbreak me. And strangers come to me. In silent moments where I'll be. Why, every time I smile, all the spirits shy away from me. Lovers fall apart. And every time I cry, I drown someone that held me high. And I don't remember what I came for. Every time you pray. And every time you die. Every time is the last time. And I don't know how to take you home. Take you home

Look away, oh Father, look away from me. Fly away, oh Father, fly away from me. Do you see, oh Father, do you see me from there. Fly away, oh Father, fly away from me. And now a story comes to mind. About a man, his forge, his crime. Nothing’s written down. But it was told that he was kind. Take your hands, oh Father, take your hands from me. Take this pain, oh Father, take this pain from me. On the wings of chaos, they came undone. On these wings of chaos, they came undone. Making wings of skin of bird and poison blades. Innocence, belief and thistle down. Love, shame, and war. A child left behind. Look away, oh Father, look away from me. Fly away, oh Father, fly away from me. On the wings of chaos, they came undone. Let the heavens see. On the wings of chaos, they came undone. On these wings of chaos, they came undone. (Alone under the moon, they cry) Tell me a story won't you. If fairytales are never true. Then you won’t mind me. If fairytales are never real. Never you bother. Tell me oh Father will you. If fairytales are never true. Then you won’t mind all my words. Since fairytales are never real. Since fairytales are never real. It's a story of a man, wings of pride, a child he told to never fear. Never fear. Never fear the sky. On the wings of chaos, they came undone. Let the heavens see. On the wings of chaos, they came undone. On these wings of chaos, they came undone.

Take my hand come see carnival pleasure. Come let me teach you carnival magic. Take my lips, taste my carnivore appetite. Take it away from me. Carnival madness. Incriminate. No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom. Liberate, burn like a star. At the carnival. And so the story goes. But it's not over 'til it's over. Not until the fat lady decides to lie down. To disappear, to die. To fade into nothing. To escape the watchers. It's not over until it's over. Until nothing but shadows cover the bodies, the naked skin and the flesh. The thoughts of skin, on sin. All the masks fell away. The masquerade became pain. The games never end in this carnival. Pleasure and pain comfort you and the carnival is free for all. Hunger comes under the leprechaun sky. But it ain't over 'til it's over for the fat lady. A touch of insane welcomes you. And the carnival is free for all. Liberation comes in lucid entropy. Come to see. But it ain't over 'til it's over for the fat lady. Incriminate. No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom. Liberate, burn like a star. At the carnival. Take my hand, come see carnival pleasure. Take your fear, make it carnival magic. Take my flesh, taste my carnivore appetite. Take it away from me, carnival madness. Incriminate. No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom. Liberate, burn like a star. At the carnival. Incriminate. No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom. Liberate, burn like a star. At the carnival.

Why do the horizons look so far away to me. Why are we so blind to the things around. Why do meaningless become the norm, the form, the way to be. And why do I keep hoping Calling out into the void The nothingness. Calling out where nobody knows. Freedom. I find yet another open sky. Freedom lies on the other side. Freedom, just another prison. But it's always the same. I find yet another naked spirit gone astray. To violate. Instead of you. How come all your blood tastes bitter beneath your memories. How come never ending agony is ever lasting treasury. How come all your lovers, all your soldiers, gather round to seize your body. Why am I still waiting. Calling out into the void. The emptiness. Calling out where nobody knows. I wait eternally. Calling out into the void. The emptiness. Calling quietly for you. But you are nothingness. Calling out but nobody knows. No no no no, gone gone gone gone, no no no no, gone gone gone gone. This is Dead Crow Depository Calling Station Angel Zebra - Please respond. Calling out into the void. This open sky where you try to hide. Calling out where nobody knows. I find yet another open sky. Freedom lies on the other side. Freedom, just another prison. But it's always the same. I find yet another naked spirit gone astray. To violate. Instead of you. I'm calling you out, in all of this sky. Can somebody hear me?
