Ae'aea 05:25
Wailing from the deep, She wanted me, she wanted me, she wanted me Siren, won’t you call I want it too, I want it too, I want it too Ae’aea, Ae’aea, Ae’aea, Ae’aea! When I can grow out of my skin, take me with you With you, beyond the graveyards Since I cannot breathe, tie me to a stone Throw me out to sea, fill me with saltwater Look inside their ears They’re filled with beeswax Filled with beeswax, to keep you out Fill me with your voice I want to hear it I just want to hear it, to hear it once No, please, take me instead I love the depths I love your tail to your head Oh, please, he doesn’t know I loved you without even hearing your voice Ae’aea, Ae’aea, Ae’aea, Ae’aea!

Take a walk in the park at night I gave you all my good advice Now you're out on your own Now you're out all alone Tell me if it's dangerous To be a two-mouthed woman Take a walk in the park at night You've got your teeth on, Looking real nice Just bring a knife that's bigger than your head Bring a knife or you might end up dead Tell me if it's dangerous To be a two-mouthed woman

White Dress 04:23
Too many times have I seen in the water A woman in a white dress drowning Too many times have I seen in the water A woman in a white dress drowning Her legs were open to the moon Just like mine, and everyone else's Those ruins will be majestic...

River Valley 06:24
Breaking off the pieces of my love for you Pulling my arms out of their sockets Breathing down the neck of it Show your fluid mess You are not a witness In the sand is where you'll find my skin Tear it up and burn it like a witch Dedicate yourself to me, maybe My bones are made of metal Get that bronze age feeling! Oh my god, I've got some fertile land I've got some beautiful land in a river valley And I want you cuz you're a visionary and you will know what to do in a river valley Oh oh oh, I've got some fertile land I've got some fruitful land in a river valley And I want you cuz you're a visionary and you will know what to do with my river valley
7.
Daylight Cold as the day you left in every way It's so inviting When you go out All that you know is lost
8.
Everyone I know likes you Everyone I know likes to be alone Oh, sailing in your eyes Kiss me in a casket, goodbye! I want to be forgotten by you

Shadow Milk 02:52
If I saw the shaking hand on the hilt of our agreement I would count the times I bled for a cloud I could not live in Why should I believe, oh why should I believe Why should I believe that the shadow milk is free? The face inside the wall is a stony hearted demon And the body on the floor somehow burns without you seeing Why should I believe, oh why should I believe Why should I believe that the shadow milk is free? If I find you shadow milking, I will throw you to the yawning chasm growing in me

Exosphere 05:29
Stay here in this frigid room, I built it out here just for you Open up your grimy hands, Covered in the blood of lambs The shepherds will not keep you safe I wish I hadn't built this place I haven't always told the truth it doesn't mean I don't love you it doesn't mean I never wanted to I never wanted to lie, To lie awake at night The sky as bright as a quasar Far, far below the lithosphere The fire moves and the dogs can't hear it The rose of evening fills the sky Tiny city, smaller lives Take me up to the exosphere; At the edge of Earth, the gods appear A weightless fire, way up high It's the feeling that you'll never die The orange of the last sunset A colour you will not forget I remembered it I remembered to lie, To lie awake at night The sky as bright as a quasar Far, far below the lithosphere The fire moves and the dogs can't hear it
