Gypsy Rhyme 01:20
Voice 1: Do you see when you dream, when you dream of me? Do you see when you dream, when you dream of me? Am I dreaming of you? Are you dreaming of me? In the eyes of a blue haired dog. Voice 2: I am the dreamer I am the light I'll take these wings and learn to fly. Voice 3: When you dream do you dream of a gypsy king? And the dance of the elves in a faerie ring? Our reality is just what we make of it; Don't you want to discover it? Is a dream as real as the waking life and the people never seem to see you twice The world of dis-reality lacks superficiality Is this dream but a dream when I dream of you Do you dream of me? Or are you just a dream too? Just a dream too.. Is this dream but a dream when I dream of you Do you dream of me? Or are you just a dream too? Voice 4: Speak in a gypsy rhyme..

Minor Demon 04:02
There was a little girl and she had a little curl Right in the middle of her forehead When she was good she was very very good When she was bad she was horrid When I was a little girl, I hit my head and split it open Doctor sewed it up but I was never quite the same I'm your modern minor demon Angel wings and eyes a-scheming Listen to me when I'm speaking This is how we shake the ceiling It's time for the world to hear the voices in me They're ready for the one who's got a soul to sell me I'm just an angel with a taste for rock and Roll you want a show I'll get the seats a-hopping Time for the world to hear the voices in me Time for the world to hear a demon singing Time for the world to hear my sound Time for the world to hear my noise Time for the world to hear my song Time for the world to hear my voice (voice voice voice...) Time for the world to hear the voices in me Time for the world to hear my Turn up the volume baby. I am a- I am a demon I'm a demon, you're a human Nice to meetcha how you doing? I can fly you're supafly I think we got a lot in common Gotta go, can't be slow you know us demons always speeding See you later by the river if we get some better weather.. I'm glad that there's room for me in this world To be me through my every evolution I'm naive I'm impatient I'm a good girl But when I choose I can be a perfect demon! (chorus) Tried to keep my demon in me Didn't work, it started singing Shut my ears and shut my mouth but then it started Climbing out People stared and whispered faintly "That girl's gotta be insane" I just took off down the highway Knew I had to do things my way I'm your modern minor demon I don't smoke I'm fire-breathing Tired of people running screaming Like they saw a ghost or something Time for the world to get a little bit bigger Time for the world to beat a little bit faster Time for the world to get a little bit louder Time for the world to meet a different creature Color me ultraviolet 'cause I'm in your skin Ready for the one who's got a soul to sell me I'm your modern minor demon I'll eat your heart for disbelieving When you get that empty feeling Know your soul is in my keeping (chorus)

le feu chartreuse I drown, I drown in flame I am the Queen of Shadow la reine de l'ombre le tisserande de chimère je suis et je me suis abandonnée à Morphée once I could not bear to see the nightmares in my lovers' eyes so I vowed that I would keep no more mortals by my side In the arms of Morpheus I am near delirious In the arms of Morpheus I am alive enough to cry and I feel and I bleed and I fall to my knees I scream I am human when I am beside him 'cross the horizon my soul used to wander as dawn came to waken my body forsaken I'd rise out of reason to unlatch my kingdom and let all the dreams I had woven flood into my land sometimes I struggled to stand I may be more than a mortal but I am no god and it's hard to keep flying when I want to walk they believe I will be there to save them the Queen of the Shadows when darkness is calling and I will not fail to protect my believers Adore me or fear me, the bottom line is that they're mine and I will not lose control Ils doivent avoir confiance en quelque chose all they have is now I won't let them down even if I have to rule this kingdom alone In the arms of Morpheus I am near delirious in the arms of Morpheus I am alive enough to cry and I feel and I bleed and I hurt and I need I can be human when I am beside him I am the Queen of the Shadows but I am still woman I need to remember that I am alive I am still beautiful, open these eyes realize that my life is not only a story Morpheus! carry me In the arms of Morpheus I am Je suis brulée par les étoiles a-flood with fire le feu chartreuse I drown, I drown in flame I am the Queen of Shadow la reine de l'ombre le tisserande de chimère je suis, et je me suis abandonnée à Morphée

Shh...Listen closely To the cavalry come to burn me down I'm surrounded by their shouting Time for me to spread my wings and learn to fly I descended from fallen angels All forbidden to fly again Demons banished to mortal soil Soon learned how to raise the dead Oh if only you'd comprehended when you tried to tear me open Now I'm forced to call the lightning down and bring your nightmares to life The churchyard brims with shadows.. I'll climb the stairway of glittering points of light You say Demons Never fly It wasn't long 'fore you showed me the cold of the blade Now I lead you down to the graves You've met the girl now meet the monster Descended from fallen angels All forbidden to fly again Demons banished to mortal soil Soon learned how to raise the dead Shellshock and doom impending, Your army never had a chance Listen now the dead are rising Soon the lightning fills the sky I am not afraid of falling on the powers I used to hide They come marching by the hordes and the torches light their eyes I know they mean to burn me down Nothing left to lose tonight Mine is the power Mine is the right to climb the glittering points of light Shellshock and doom impending You'd better start defending Against the horrors I've released! Checkmate. Game over. All the shadows Tighten slowly To remind you I.. I descended from fallen angels All forbidden to fly again Demons banished to mortal soil Soon learned how to raise the dead You pretended to be my champion always wishing to steal my dreams I remember your fingers so hard You say the damned will never reach the stars..stars (hark the stars cluster round the bell tower while gloom in the dark there blooms like a flower. Listen, it's priming to chime the night hour...) Rise from the shadows Rise from the night Rise from the shadows Rise, rise...

Ooo ooo Luna luna Luna luna You refused to lend me a sack of sugar cubes You refused to lend me A cup of sugar You were my neighbor You were supposed to. Now there are lights Like oil lamps burning in my head Spilling into lagoons where I can hear Dead mermaids Singing sweetly to the sky There's a dead mermaid in your eyes I see a lovely picture in the stars You'll never remember my Dandelion scars Luna luna Dead mermaid's singing to your heart You refused to lend me a sack of sugar cubes You refused So I Borrowed eternity in a box Instead Yes I Borrowed eternity Instead Luna ooo

Odonatan 03:21
have you met the Odonatan human? he was born like all the others, crawling by a pond underneath an overturned dinghy, he first caught my eye human, you have such a curious structure! i would love to see your dermis ossified your eyes and hands are plainly begging to be multiplied i escorted him, reluctant, to my dwelling through the labyrinth of labs i keep inside he was scared but i assured him there would be no worry once he learned to fly my assistants held him down through the de-boning we sedated him with Tramadol and gin he was giggling through the surgery and stitching we were glad because the others used to scream (chorus) come to me my fine anthropomorphic specimen i could fashion you a wonder of the world i consider you to be my sphere of influence for i am an imperialistic girl all the papers are a-buzz about his making news of him is circulating far and wide all the children and their parents stare astonished at the image of his compound eyes marvel at the figure of the Odonatan gloriously metamorphosized i could build a chrysalis like his for you in just your size

I promise I'll obey all my life I won't claw at the moon I won't drink in the dawn I won't paint up the night I won't do any wrong I'm going to be going be just like you going to be going be just like you And I won't cry I'll fall before I fly I'm going to be going be just like you going to be going be just like you fall before I fly just like just like just like every one of you I will not try to rise will not crash the ceiling or the sky I'm going to be going be just like you going to be going be just like you going to be going be just like you going to be going be just like you ah.

Universe 05:28
Knock knock knock Universe Why haven't you returned my calls? I think it's Impolite To keep the Shadow Queen in such suspense I told you I don't want to fight I only want to be in your good graces I used to hold the aces To all your games Did you think you were so hard to tame? (Trust me I won't make the same mistake) Maybe once upon a time I told you that I would be nice Don't be coy dear I lied You're mine I made you and I can break you Too. (Don't be a fool you know that I make the rules and if you're hoping for mercy I'm the wrong kind of God You can plead, you can fall to your knees for eternity You won't sway me You have betrayed me) Pardon my Rather poisonous turn of phrase I just want you to know This time you have no place to hide I'll sear my name on every star so you'll remember what you are You came from my imagination Sorcery and inclination to design a work of art A plane superior 'cause the place from whence I came was inferior. (I have survived the stuff of nightmares and I don't think you quite understand that you are mine to demand I'm already inside of your mind I'll swallow down your will in mine) Ma cherie Battit ses ailes s'envoler elle ne peut jamais Ah mon coeur Abandonnes-toi moi, la reine de l'ombre Now your charms are all undone Dissolution has begun Come back soon before you're gone You have been warned! (Chorus2) (Chorus1) Don't make me break you. (xiao xin) Knock knock knock universe oh, oh universe No one else deserves To have what I had first You No one deserves you No one deserves to have what I had first what I had first what I had first..

Dark Water 02:36
Just close your eyes, you'll dream of me I am the goddess of your idolatry And though astray you may have been led You'll hear my voice inside your head Dark water gliding by Faster butterfly! Take my wings and learn to fly I am a dream Searching for a dreamer I want my validation With you be my redeemer? (Chorus) Or can my dis-reality step into your world? Bleeding through the shadow shapes I'm more than god or girl (chorus) When you make me real And split me at the seams I will be the dreamer And you will be my dream (chorus)x2

about

Originally released around late May/early June 2006 as a small collection of homemade CD-Rs, now available on the internet because Psyche does not know where her CD-R burner is anymore.

More about this album.. This is the first album I ever made. A lot of it consists of very minimalist instrumentals, just one simple acoustic loop repeating on into infinity, because that's what I had figured out how to make at the time. The songs with more complex instrumentals* resulted from collaborations with more experienced musicians. Fun fact, none of these songs were made on a computer that I personally owned at the time. They were either made on a shared computer at school or in someone else's studio. In the shared computer case, I was generally only able to get 128 kbps mp3s out of that computer, so the audio quality isn't great, but I'm not holding out on you folks-- what you have is what I have. As for the 3 songs made not-on-the-school-computer, they were made with a producer who wasn't willing to give me the wavs, only 128 kbps mp3s.

*Minor Demon, Raise the Dead, Universe, and Morpheus v2.1. The former 3 were part of a slightly shady music contract I got involved in while young and naive; the producer was maybe going to pitch them for a record deal, it did not pan out. Morpheus the original was another one of my minimalist loops, but Jason Perez and I had got to working on stuff for his band back in the day, and he made the v2.1 track for me because he's awesome.

Also special thanks to Tom Tribuzio who helped me get Wolf's Lament recorded, way back in the day.
