Track Name: Silk and Poison
You look deep into my eyes just to watch your own reflection
And your words are plagiarised, seducing me with my invention
But you’ve got me paralysed, like a spider with a fly
I only move if that is your intention

You hang just outside my reach, where the world is always brighter
I’m once more into the breach, though there’s nothing left to fight for
And baby, ain’t it sweet, you don’t need me on a leash
When every word you speak just pulls me tighter

Weave, weave, weave, weave, weave, weave me into dust
Caught up in your devil’s web
Woven by the words you said
Tellin me that you’ll stay true
I’m deceived and now you’ve run me through

Weave, weave, weave, weave, weave, weave me into dust

Yeeeeah, you hold me tighter than a Scavenger’s Daughter
You draw me in until I –
Yeeeeah, you take me over like I never fought it
I’m cradled in your silk and poison (silk and poison)

You take me into your arms like you never want to lose me
Then you leave me in the dark, just a forgotten amusement
But I’m happy in this nest, in this silent emptiness
You’ve weakened me until I can’t refuse it

Weave, weave, weave, weave, weave
Caught up in your devil’s web
Woven by the words you said
Tellin me that you’ll stay true…
I’m deceived and now you’ve run me through

Yeeeeah, you hold me tighter than a Scavenger’s Daughter
You draw me in until I –
Yeeeeah, you take me over like I never fought it
I’m cradled in your silk and poison
I’m cradled in your silk and poison
Track Name: Double or Nothing
I always fall the same way twice, cos hell’s as warm as paradise
You know, I’ll heed no good advice
Take the heat in my stride, back on my feet for another ride
So go, and deal that hand tonight

The scars that I’ve accrued, they show I don’t need you to save me
The cards that I’ve abused, still got some more to lose, so play me

Let’s go
Double or nothing
Trouble or nothing
Double or nothing
To the floor, to lose some more

I always fall so far from home, ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no phone
I’m cool to sit here on my own
Live my life so wretchedly, with every vice I draw to me
Until these burns are third degree

The scars that I’ve accrued, they show I don’t need you to save me
The cards that I’ve abused, still got some more to lose, so play me

Let’s go
Double or nothing
Trouble or nothing
Double or nothing
To the floor, to lose some more

Let’s go
Double or nothing
Trouble or nothing
Double or nothing
To the floor, to lose some more
Double or nothing
Trouble or nothing
Double or nothing
To the floor, to lose some more
Track Name: Dark Secret Love
Oh Rose, you’re sick, the invisible worm
That flies in the night, in the howling storm
Has found thy bed of crimson joy
Dark, secret love does thy life destroy

I’m drowning in my own hurricane
The things I’ll do to make you look my way
I’m spinning down into my own pain
You’re here to stay

If you don’t want me, don’t say you love me
If you won’t have me, don’t leave me hanging on
Dark, secret love

Oh spell, you’re foul, the invisible knot
That binds me inside in this endless rot
It steals my pride and eats my joy
Dark, secret love does my life destroy

I’m strangled in my own tourniquet
The things I’ll do to make it go away
Confounded in everything you say
You’re here to stay

If you don’t want me, don’t say you love me
If you won’t have me, don’t leave me hanging on
Dark, secret love
Dark, secret love
Dark, secret love, don’t leave me hanging on
Dark, secret love

If you don’t want me, don’t say you love me
If you won’t have me, don’t leave me hanging on
If you don’t want me, don’t say you love me
If you won’t have me, don’t leave me hanging on
Dark, secret love
Dark, secret love
Dark, secret love, don’t leave me hanging on
Dark, secret love
Track Name: Naked Flame
You know I see right through you, though I’m afraid to call you out
But if I hold onto you, I’ll only hurt myself
You know I’m scared to lose you, though I'm less hopeful every day
But I feel closer to you every time you push away

But you’re a naked flame, you’ll only burn me again
And yeah, I must be insane to love you
And when I build you up, it’s like I’m speaking in tongues
I know I can’t be the one, but I love you

You know that if I leave you, I’ll just come crawling back for more
You know that I’ll believe you, close my eyes to all your flaws
You know the more I need you, the more you’ll see me as a fool
But still I'll always treat you like you’re on a pedestal

But you’re a naked flame, you’ll only burn me again
And yeah, I must be insane to love you
And when I build you up, it’s like I’m speaking in tongues
I know I can’t be the one, but I love you
Track Name: Vanitas
Got a human skull, and a wooden flute, and a not-yet-rotten bowl of fruit
I set them out like artists do, and I wish I could do the same to you
Got a canvas, and the finest brush, for all the angles that the light don’t touch
Draw it before it turns to dusk, cos living is only dust to dust

I’ll capture you in vanitas
Cos nothing’s ever gonna last
What goes up must come down
What you let go by won’t come back round
Waiting for this soaring high
To crush me to the ground

Hanging in suspended time, and the moments pass unsatisfied
Trying to keep them all alive, to make a shrine of you and I
The day, it slips away from me, and my canvas ever incomplete
Close my eyes before you leave, to burn you into my memory

I’ll capture you in vanitas
Cos nothing’s ever gonna last
What goes up must come down
What you let go by won’t come back round
Waiting for this soaring high
To crush me to the ground

How easily it disappears
Til presently I’ll doubt that you were ever there
Before I even take it in
Before my eyes you’re vanishing
Did I imagine it?

I’ll capture you in vanitas
Cos nothing’s ever gonna last
What goes up must come down
What you let go by won’t come back round
Waiting for this soaring high
To crush me to the ground
Track Name: Murderess
She’s down, she’s like a crow trapped on the ground
Try to find her wings but she’ll never fly
Think you know the reason why
And she’s hanging around, an unwelcome guest
Here to feed on the blood and the flesh,
Truth and light, yes, light, yes, light, yes

She’s a fighter, she’s a killer, she’ll get ya
She’s a fighter, she’s a killer, she’ll get ya
Don’t need a silencer

Yeah, she’s a murderess
Cracking skulls in a party dress
She’s a murderess, oooh,
Yeah, she’s a murderess
Cracking skulls in a party dress
She’s a murderess

Bloodied and bare, white skin and black hair
And you’re making a mistake with that apple you just ate

She’s a viper, she’s a striker, vampire
She’s a viper, she’s a striker, vampire
She’ll take a life now

Yeah, she’s a murderess
Cracking skulls in a party dress
She’s a murderess, oooh,
Yeah, she’s a murderess
Cracking skulls in a party dress
She’s a murderess

Try to shun her, she’s close
Try to shrink her, she grows
Try to sink her, she floats
Track Name: Wormtongue
Every word that leaves her mouth is a lie
Don’t it feel that it’s just dragging you down, down, down, down down

Your poison ivy, she passes by me, like she never knew me
Though just yesterday
She set upon me, took secrets from me
Seeking only to betray

She’s got a wormtongue
You’re coming undone,
She’ll leave you blind
You’re outta time
She’s got a wormtongue
You’re coming undone,
She’ll leave you blind
Lost and denied

Don’t you feel that it’s controlling your mind
Hold on tight cos she’ll be taking you down, down, down, down down

Your one and only, she’ll kill you slowly
Till you can’t recall how it felt before she fed you poison,
And now you’ve chosen your queen for evermore

She’s got a wormtongue,
You’re coming undone,
She’ll leave you blind
You’re outta time
She’s got a wormtongue,
You’re coming undone,
She’ll leave you blind
Lost and denied
Track Name: Amateur
I used to live my life like Becky Sharp
Playing Snakes and Ladders, and breaking hearts
But now it’s all backfired, and I’m back at the start
And all it does is tear me, all it does is tear me apart

I used to tell myself that I don’t care at all
And all my cruel intentions, wouldn’t have to answer for
But now the floor’s the ceiling though I’ve still got space to fall
And I don’t wanna do this, do this no more

Cos I’m an amateur, oh, and you’re a pro
And I’m left scrambling, while you’re in the zone
I’m an amateur, yeah, and you’re a pro
And I’m not managing, to hold my own
With every move you’re making
Can’t you see I’m breaking
As I sit here waiting by the phone
Like an amateur

I used to pride myself on being cool
Making bad decisions, and breaking all the rules
But now it’s come full-circle, I’m left feeling like a fool
And all it’s doing is making, making me ill

Cos I’m an amateur, oh, and you’re a pro
And I’m left scrambling, while you’re in the zone
I’m an amateur, yeah, and you’re a pro
And I’m not managing, to hold my own
With every move you’re making
Can’t you see I’m breaking
As I sit here waiting by the phone

You’re the best, and I’m just out of my depth, while you’re cruising
You’re on top but I don’t know when to stop, though I’m losing

I’m an amateur, oh, and you’re a pro
And I’m left scrambling, while you’re in the zone
I’m an amateur, yeah, and you’re a pro
And I’m not managing, to hold my own
With every move you’re making
Can’t you see I’m breaking
As I sit here waiting by the phone

And every breath I’m taking
Always more frustrating
As I lie awake here on my own

And my heart is aching
To be so mistaken
When you set the pace I should’ve known

I’m an amateur
Track Name: His Honey Words
You may know a man who don’t love with his fists
But now where there’s no bruise, it just feels like negligence
If he cares, you’ll feel it

Look for ways to tune the feeling out
Try to drink it away but it only pours back out
And with every day, it’s harder not to stay

His honey words stick at every decibel
D’ya think he’s the one who’s gonna lead you out of hell?
Don’t forget who put you there
And you know he doesn’t care
Babe, he wouldn’t shed a tear if you fell

From the moment you wake, there’s nobody else
Yeah, that’s the way he works through you like he does
Everything that he takes, from Midas touch to dust

Coming on strong, with the many cards he holds
But the moment he’s done, you’re out in the cold
Have you learned that all that glitters isn’t gold?

His honey words stick at every decibel
D’ya think he’s the one who’s gonna lead you out of hell?
Don’t forget who put you there
And you know he doesn’t care
Babe, he wouldn’t shed a tear if you fell
(If you love me, free me
You know I burn so easy)

Darling, you’re my guiding star
I could never stray too far
Track Name: Slave
Want you to hate me, want you to chase me
Want you to hold me till you suffocate me
Want you to save me, want you to crave me,
Want you to mould me and manipulate me

I’m a sucker for a psychopath
You got me sucking for an autograph

And I’m depraved, I wanna be your slave
And I’ll behave, I wanna be your slave

Want you to take me, want you to break me,
Want you to fuck me like you’re gonna pay me
Want you to shake me, want you to shape me
Want you to hit me and asphyxiate me

I feel a shiver every time you laugh
I guess I’m asking for the aftermath

And I’m depraved, I wanna be your slave
And I’ll behave, I wanna be your slave

Want you to make me hurt
And drag me through the dirt
Want you to make me work
Baby, you’re so perverse
And I’m depraved…

And I’m depraved, I wanna be your slave
And I’ll behave, I wanna be your slave
Track Name: Paper Doll feat. Evan Rodaniche
Once again I’ve had enough of wasting my time
Once again I’ve had enough of hearing your lies
And once again, I’m getting up, I’m getting over you
I’m getting on, I'm getting over all I’ve been through

I could be stronger, hold you for longer, and still all you’d know, is that
I could be smarter, run to you faster, and still all you’d know
Is a paper doll

I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick

And you’re never gonna get a chance to hear me say that I believe you
And you’re never gonna get a chance to hear me say that I might need you
And you’re never gonna get a chance to get to see how it’s gonna be
With me

I could be stronger, hold you for longer, and still all you’d know, is that
I could be smarter, run to you faster, and still all you’d know
Is a paper doll

I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick
I know it’s electric
But your kiss in the rain was no more than a hat trick

I could be stronger, hold you for longer, and still all you’d know, is that
I could be smarter, run to you faster, and still all you’d know
Is a paper doll
Track Name: Waiting to Burn
I’m standing on a knife edge
And baby, yeah, I’ve made my bed
I’m planning all my nightmares
Close my eyes on all my fears
I’m sick
And it’s lucky you can’t hear me think
Oh baby, I’m afflicted
And it’s scary how I’m losing it, losing it, losing it

And I’m waiting, waiting, waiting to burn
I’ve nowhere to turn
My house is on fire
I’m waiting, waiting, waiting all day
I can’t walk away
I’ve built my own pyre
And I’m waiting to burn

I’m standing on a tightrope
Heaven above me and hell below
And if I fall there’s no hope
Cos there’s only one way I’ll go
But I want it
And I’m willing my feet to slip
Yeah, baby, I’m addicted
And it’s scary how I’m needing it, needing it, needing it

And I’m waiting, waiting, waiting to burn
I’ve nowhere to turn
My house is on fire
I’m waiting, waiting, waiting all day
I can’t walk away
I’ve built my own pyre
It’s under, under, under my skin
It’s drawing me in
It’s gripping me tighter
Than ever, ever, ever I’ve been
There’s no way to win
Against this desire
And I’m waiting to burn

I’m waiting, I’m waiting, I’m waiting
I’m waiting, I’m waiting, I’m waiting

And I’m waiting, waiting, waiting to burn
I’ve nowhere to turn
My house is on fire
I’m waiting, waiting, waiting all day
I can’t walk away
I’ve built my own pyre
It’s under, under, under my skin
It’s drawing me in
It’s gripping me tighter
Than ever, ever, ever I’ve been
There’s no way to win
Against this desire
And I’m waiting to burn
