Put It On 04:10
Going to take you around to a pyro’s playground where the buildings are falling and the sirens are calling Where there’s poor ventilation and there's smoke inhalation and the flames are tickling all the people are pickling People are pickling flames are tickling smoke inhalation poor ventilation sirens are calling buildings are falling But we want to put it on We’re going to put it on

Midnight 02:50
Midnight broke and I had something She wrote so I went into a dream I wanted to reply, in fact I wanted To fly to that castle in the sky I wanted to scream some long Lost dream of a Midnight Queen Midnight stroke was the time I awoke and I went into the street And all the faces that I see, They make Midnight seem to me To be or not to be I wanted to scream some Midnight Dream of a long lost Queen I wanted to reply I wanted to fly

Going down to the cemetery I don’t seem to feel too good There’s a body hanging from a tree My heart feels like it’s made of wood (A-ha ha) And I don’t want to die Just for telling a lie No I don’t want to die There’s a gang close on my tail I can’t seem to shake them loose They want to put me in the jail So I can face the hangman’s noose (A-no no) And I don’t want to die Just for telling a lie No I don’t want to die Being persecuted for a simple crime Shed my tears and paid that price That’s not enough, I've got to do time For something which I didn’t think twice about (No I didn’t think twice) And I don’t want to die Just for telling a lie No I don’t want to die

Smashed 03:18
Like a boat on a river, only one way it can go and that boat on a river, it's gonna make it wanna throw, overflow Smashed! Or the licker in your liver, is gonna take you down the river, gonna slice you up a sliver you can take it to the throne and you won’t be alone Smashed! Like a snake I’m gonna slither, gonna make your lipser quiver, gonna take you down the river you can make it overflow

The clowns are in the churchyard They’re going two by two For the skull of another jester is Performing there at two The Prince of Denmark is Conducting a minor symphony and Will attempt the execution of a Grand soliloquy The players have all entered Now with mattocks and with spades as For the comfort of their guest a Pit of clay has to be made For this fellow who was once a Most gifted orator has been Lying in the earth for three and Twenty years or more Alas, poor Yorrick, I knew him He could have been a lawyer with His quillets and tenures but What does all that matter to The grave he has been lured Instead he spilt the wine as The jester of the court and The Prince of Denmark knows Another lesson has been taught Alas, poor Yorrick, I knew him, Horatio!

Cathedral 05:30
Monumental building in a neolithic land Heavenly aspirations that were made By human hands Anachronistic structure in a monolithic age Giving power to the few and putting Others in a cage Monumental building in a neolithic land Heavenly aspirations that were built By human hands Anachronistic structure in a monolithic age Giving power to the few and putting Others in a cage

Tree 03:03
There’s a tree on the hill There’s an owl in the tree There is a grave I can see There’s somebody else here with me There’s a bat in the sky and the wind it's just a sigh There through the window I spy The murder occurring nearby

Gloom 04:17

Ruins 02:42
It’s a clear dark night and a Crisp white moon provides a Silky backdrop to the ruins Structure built to last All time is crumbling in Despair it lies in ruins Ruins in the ruins Pale young Princess northern Blood has lost all sense of Space and time in the ruins Dark haired knight from southern Lands can’t seem to find his Mortal way through the ruins Ruins in the ruins
10.
Apocalypse 02:51
Women flee the town The beast is on the prowl Riders on their black steeds are Chewing on their spears The sun, a blazing red orb is Setting in the east Apocalypse The end of the world is here
