Track Name: Raven's Song

{ RAVEN'S SONG }

Amnesia wrap me
In your wings
Under the orange tree
Cradle me high
And swing me sideways

Borrow & bleed boy
Gnaw your nails
And curl your toes

You see
What Heaven sees
And I know
That it's beautiful

{ CLOVER }

Here under the stars
Bright as they are
I smell Clover
And died of a broken heart, died of a broken...

Path across the sky
Cuts between the eye
In the webs
Of a weeping willow

A picture of you & I
Standing in a field of fire
I don't know this heartbeat full of fear
Yet, I walk the loneliest mile

Hair untidy
Crushed unsmiling
I don't know this heart
I don't own this heart

{ LOCUST }

Till the moon shines no more
And the stars refuse their light
Driving you... driving you
Back to me

Till the ocean waves no more
And the crow refuse to fly
Driving you... driving you
Back to me

If only, if only, if only
Be it a dream...
If only, if only, if only
Be it a dream
I heard you leave

Till the locust drags along
And you're broken in your arms
Driving you... driving you
Out to sea

Has the bruising brought you low?
Are the stories all untold?
Driving you... driving you
Back to me

I heard you leave
Oh... come back to me

{ RUINED }

Mother look at...
my face
Mother are you...
still ashamed
Mother look at...
my arms
Mother do you still...
see the scars

Can't you see
in my eyes
I'm ruined
Mom, I'm ruined

Can't you see
it's in my life
Can't you tell
I'm mortified
and I'm ruined

Mother see...
my plight
Can't you tell
I'm paralyzed
Mother please hold me
in your arms
Please stop crying
it does me harm

Can't you see
in my eyes
I'm ruined
Mom, I'm ruined

Can't you see
it's in my life
Can't you tell
I'm terrified
and I'm ruined...
Forever ruined

{ PRETTY BOYS }

Went and wondered what happened to ya
Went and fell down a deep dark well
Went and got myself some crazy
Went and got yourself so old

Kind of wandered in a Wild West
Kind of slipped a peculiarness
Kept it to myself like too much dust
Kept it to myself my fingers crossed

Now I'm just a number
Eyes deep in slumber
My head full of pain

Now I'm just a number
Is it any wonder
I'll rant and I'll rave

Two will... Remember... Your name

Come on pretty people better think again
The comfort of living is to know the end
Come on pretty boys keep down the noise
The train is coming... I hear it's voice

Now I'm just a number
Eyes deep in slumber
My head full of pain

Now I'm just a number
Is it any wonder
I rant and I rave

Two will... Remember... Your name

Two will... Remember... Your face
Remember that life, Remember your name
