dbdbdbedb93 First heard a few tracks from this album on UK radio and loved it. 20 YEARS later thought on to Google Sarah to see if she still existed! - as a singer - and was delighted to find many excellent albums, so bought the lot in one go, eleven i think it is with number twelve to be released soon.

Scream 04:10
What can you do When the poison in your veins Starts to rot Pounding doors They are whores When yourself is all you've got But I still see the green I still see that green And it makes me want to scream So a break in command Starts causing flies But a flowing backward motion Brings us back This thing in my perception Has left us here to bleed And it makes me want to scream Rest assured little pigs You can snort your way into heaven I'll assign the rooms You just count your sheep A little fairy pricked just tonight She said one wish is granted For the girl who hates the world So I gave her all my money In a jar of broken dreams I gave her all my screams But rest assured you little pigs All little piggies go to heaven I'll mobilize the souls You just count your sheep Is anyone here listening Human or undead Is anger just our nourishment Our piece of daily bread ‘Cause it's all a part of feeling Of ripping out your weeds And it makes me want to scream

Please come in the back door Close it behind you I won't ever tell them you're here Me I like the trapdoors The keeping of a secret Your affinity for deepness Pulls me down Sexual animals Come inside of me Just enough to hurt this body I know that you know how Come inside of me You know it's exactly what I need So careful where you're touching I'm not ready yet What is there to catch you If the safety net has ripped Wide-Eyed you look me over Unbuttoning my skin I take a deep breath in Sexual animals Crawl inside of me Just enough to hurt this body I know that you know how Come inside of me You know it's exactly what I need Your entourage is waiting by the car While I sit here Bonding with some brand new scars Let’s kiss goodbye Close your eyes Sleep He said You're already dead Sexual Animals Crawl inside of me Just enough to hurt this body I know that you know how Come inside Come Inside

The sky she asks for rain Clouds they start to blend to one Words they seem to move the sun So often we are buried by the truth We sit here far removed I wonder where we’ll be After the blue A patient girl she waits As violets start to cringe again The hollow moon she starts to bend Fractured pieces of her distant youth Fly above to soothe A heart that's seen the sky After the blue How we like to tread on stars Treating them like stones Pretending they are sisters So we do not have to feel alone Seduced by friends of compromise I fight to find my nourishment Until I do I'm not content For now I wear my sorrow very true This life will end me soon For now I'm settled here But once I'm gone I'll come look beyond for you After the blue

Valhalla 06:20
Valhalla's where I'm waiting I watch with loving eyes from far away It's where I need you In my lullabies of sorrow you remain Valhalla is where you're coming ‘Cause here this burning madness had to die My heart screams come to me But here I can say nothing but goodbye If you're just another soldier Then battle elsewhere please If not tear me from this earth Take me to your seas Cause it's difficult to feel now I ache in every bone A twisted fate Has left us both alone Valhalla's where I'm waiting My devil and my angels too For they are joined And show themselves through you You lie beneath my skin now You wear this piece of metal close Just as close as I could ever come To touch you there If you are just a soldier Then battle elsewhere please If not tear me from this earth And take me to your seas Cause it’s difficult to breathe now Can't you hear it in my tone The life in me Has hardened into stone Until we reach Valhalla Where I'll be your dear Persephone Look to shallow heavens That's where I'll be Here I tempt the gallows There this love would be an art In Valhalla I'll be waiting for your heart

Full of this stuff Just waiting for the sign Watching the years I am watching the flowers die The spider within Holding on by string Still I'm all alone hearing this Circus Type Thing Ask what I think And I'll tell you I think That it's frightening All of these places to dance Yet we are still A weightless improbable force Has come to enlighten But why should we listen If there's nothing in it to kill Often I'm hearing these questions my friend You're never quite hearing the sounds Thanks for the voices These sweet little voices They follow me all the way down It seems that we dream hard For peaches and cream And their sweetness If we are what we eat Then why are we not sweet ourselves And where's this Arcadian gateway Once loved by Pandora Did she bring our demise Or be true to the nature of self Often I'm seeing my goat-footed friend And often I see him in you Disguised as a song He campaigns for the end A few were reserved for the truth Yeah a few were reserved for the truth Finding no comforting words from the priest I've found that each season can sing If she'd survived beyond winter She might've seen the spring To see that we all make this Circus Type Thing

Bombay Cafe 03:25
I remember our day at the Bombay Café When I found out love ain't enough The old man at the bar Tossing dreams into jars said Girl he ain't gonna show up And I stood there a mess and uncertain Till he walked through The whites of the curtain I said I knew you would come He said I can't love anyone Everything I am And everything I do Just pulls me back to you I remember that day At the Bombay Café My hair getting soaked by the rain And your hand held my own Till that river of stone Tore us apart at the veins But we fought it you know Like the wind fights the snow That’s how everything goes I remember our day at the Bombay Café Most other things I can't recall And I can't recall Just how I got here today Standing right over your grave He said I knew you would come I said I can't love anyone I remember that day at the Bombay Café And there can't be another one No there can’t be another one

Mr. Cripple man Do you still feel your hands The light you never fill She's waiting by the door While atoms play around You sit here to obstruct I never thought to think That what goes down does not come up Hostage on the gravity train Just when we move forward We fall back again The sharpness of his nail It hammers down the fold And in all this time We're just running from the whole Enter woman girl Enter to your left Stage right The chaos it ensues Beneath the coating of your skin Her boa it constricts Spotlight on a barren soul She needn't ask the stars Just what it's like to feel star cold Hostage on the gravity train Just when we move forward We fall back again The sharpness of his nail It hammers down the fold And in all this time We're just running from the whole When I leave again I'll cycle through this atmosphere Past a marching bands of souls They’ll scrape me with their human eyes A taste of bitter earth I'll just bring with me a dollar's worth My face burns from the wind And it's time to shed my second skin We're hostage on this gravity train Just when we move forward We fall back again The sharpness of his nail It hammers down the fold In all this time We're just running from the whole

So a red paper bag Broke my heart today No one knows that it came From your hands The blood is still perched By the third letter from the right The red paper bag Has been tucked away Safe from supply and demand But if I dare delight In its beauty I might Just keep dying again and again So the red paper bag Tries to call to me As a tear Drowns an ant on the floor I suppose it is worse To indulge in a curse than to fight But I'm just about dead From this tragedy Or am I She says with a grin I find out what it’s worth Just by finding out how much It hurts And the state I'm in I'll just put the two corners together My soul plays a grave for the night As I bury my head in the pillows he says Perhaps in another life

I fashioned this ribbon From my own velvet tears I melted these flowers Just to make you a ring Adorned with this madness You scream in the dark Perhaps it is this then That sets us apart Your beauty was potent I choke at the thought Your hair streams of ivy Your eyes crystalline stars Your beautiful nightmares You see them as art Perhaps it is this then That sets us apart And so I tied up my veins For that bow in your hair And I took blame for pain That was already there But when you reached the last stretch You ran back to the start Perhaps it is this then That sets us apart Can you feel Do you know The shallow ground that holds The beautiful piece of your heart That I never got to kiss Now all I do is miss those things That set us apart

At Dawn 06:22
Random little things keep taunting me The rose left on my pillow after you leave Favorites turn to monsters As the seasons turn around I had no idea I’d feel so upside down Even now my mirror stands alone She nestles closely now up to the sun These visions do no good When they are badly drawn So when this night is over I will leave at dawn My story tells itself I stand in front of you My belly lies exposed For you to chew Thunder came in hope to kiss the storm Charming as he was I still said no I have nothing but my fists to fight you with This skin is so much tougher than the bone But I'm trying hard to sing to the fibers of a man Who couldn't see two people holding hands But night has come to pass And what I've felt has gone So when this night is over I will leave at dawn Every cent of suffering I offer now to pay If there is mercy Mercy come find me Something lovely Come alive and find me Cause if you don't I might just have to find myself Random little things were taunting me But now I've got this precious gift from tragedy A promise is a promise and I've made one The horizon's moving toward me I can see the sun I can see the sun
