Annabel Lee 05:27
It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden there lived whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee; And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me. Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? I was a child and she was a child, In this kingdom by the sea, But we loved with a love that was more than love— I and my Annabel Lee— With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven Coveted her and me. And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea, A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee; So that her highborn kinsmen came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea. Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, Went envying her and me— Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? But our love, it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we— Of many far wiser than we— And neither the angels in Heaven above Nor the demons down under the sea Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride, In her sepulchre there by the sea— In her tomb by the sounding sea. Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me? Annabel, Annabel, Annabel Lee, Won't you come home to me?

Better choke on plastic Before you're practice For would-be assassins hiding out in my shadow, I'm a Lady Perilous Can't change it, let's be honest, that is why you are so Desperate. She is akin to the ocean rising under the moon And ruthless, Seduces. She knows your heat like a furnace will be warming her soon, It's easy To please me. Straight shot to your heart Is a good start For the next part, Oh yes. So cold, she burns on your tongue, Salty as the mermaid she's from. Better choke on plastic Before you're practice For would-be assassins hiding out in my shadow, I'm a Lady Perilous Can't change it, let's be honest, that is why you are so Desperate. My alleys are haunted By those I wanted Who didn't have the sense to tell me, "No." So come refuse me And dare to lose me- You want me You want me You have me. Searching, Waiting, Pounding, Aching, I can make it all go away. I know it's painful, You taste of shameful, I can make it all go away. Sailors just like you Are born every day To decorate my rocks, dear. Stranger fish have found my net and I'm singing yet --Or is it the ocean (ocean ocean)? (chorus) Doesn't matter how you paid, You paid. (paid) Doesn't matter how you loved, You loved. (You loved) Find another way to save me Find another way to save me from myself Find another way to save me Find another way to save me from myself Find another way to save me Find another way to save me from myself Find another way to save me save me save me save me (chorus)

Monarchy 04:54
Soft, it begins again like all those stories you have heard before.. Once a queen disguised herself among the poor.. I walk among you to receive all of the sorrows that you keep. I would learn the songs your children believe and oh my dear.. Let me serve confessor for your abandoned aspirations. Let me be the ledger for silent tears and oh my dear Will you give to my campaign to depose your dread oppressor? Will you dare the king to blame and appoint me his successor? Glory and war began her reign as righteous as the one before So the king disguised himself among the poor.. I rise among you to concede what hopes we pinned upon the queen lie half-forgotten in the songs we believed against the king Let me serve a champion for your unsatisfied desires Let us clamor for a justice inspired and oh my dears Will you give to my campaign to depose your dread oppressor? Will you dare the queen to blame and appoint me her successor? Long live the monarchy! (The people have spoken) Long live the monarchy! (The monarch is chosen) Long live the monarchy! (The people have spoken) Long live the monarchy. I walk among you to receive all of the sorrows that you keep. I would learn the songs your children believe and oh my dear.. Let me serve confessor for your abandoned aspirations. Let me be the ledger for silent tears and oh my dear Will you give to my campaign to depose your dread oppressor? Will you dare the king to blame and appoint me his successor? Let me serve a champion for your unsatisfied desires Let us clamor for a justice inspired and oh my dears Will you give to my campaign to depose your dread oppressor? Will you dare the queen to blame and appoint me her successor?

Dance for Me 03:31
Come for the power, Come for the pain, Come for the glory, Come for the game. (The power, the pain, the glory, the game. The power, the pain, the glory, the game.) What if I told you, you could be special What if I told you, you've got potential (Special, potential, special, potential) What if I told you, you could be great All you have to do is do what I say You could be special, you've got potential I'm here to help you--hear and obey Now dance for me, my marionette Dance for me with no regret I'm behind your every step I'm behind your every breath La-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la La-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la Take in the ache for perfection, you are ripe for direction (Tell me it doesn't hurt doesn't hurt) (Now give give it all you're worth) Forsake the specter of choice Be my vessel of glory Carry my voice What if I told you, power is a privilege Head down, mouth shut, you are gonna work for it Dare you to tell me my power is a privilege Dare to defy me, have you got the courage? Dance for me, my marionette Dance for me with no regret I'm behind your every step I'm behind your every breath La-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la La-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la la-la la la la Dance for me, my marionette Dance for me with no regret I'm behind your every step I'm behind your every breath Do you still feel the rush, Do you still feel the pain, Do you still have the guts to keep playing the game? Choke on the rage and bury your tears You will serve my kind many more years. (chorusx4)

Nine Lives 04:07
In my country, the children are born with nine lives and they choose the eight weakest to sacrifice. Welcome to the battleground of Dreams Forsaken. Tell me is it greed, if all of us Should awaken? But I have a secret in the back of my caravan Grant me a chance to cross the borderland. What can I give you, beautiful man, to be my protector, and count as my friend? I can see by your eyes, you're the child of the Rose. Even here, in disguise, you're the child of the Rose. So flee through the night, and my heart will never know that in your sleep you kept them both alive. Welcome to the battleground of Dreams Forsaken. Tell me is it greed, if all of us Should awaken? Fresh from the land of Make Believe, How could you bear to decide which hopes to take along and which to leave behind? Welcome to the battleground of Dreams Forsaken. Tell me is it greed, if all of us Should awaken? One in a million children will pray for an enormous world they can hide in, and never be found. And it's tragic, in a shrinking world, where the Strange have to strive to be less than visible, if they want to survive (But we survive) And so below another sky I reach for Them with all my might One of silver, one of steel and both of them wish to be real.
