Track Name: Lady of Shalott
Weave the tread of our fall
Blind of all flesh from your beloved Camelot.
It´s the curse of the Lady of Shalott.

“God in his mercy lend her grace”

Outcast from the world I have become
Looking into a mirror to see Camelot
It´s the burden of the Lady of Shalott.

But when the curse falls down upon us
We will burn together
Under rain, the wickiest of weather
And sail, pale white, onto Camelot
Dead by the side of the Lady of Shalott.

I´ll crawl to the Sun.
The mirror is cracking now
Silent & broken I´ve become
From the weaving of my pain.
Curse my life & the mark of Cain
For no more shall the lady of Shalott
Sit quietly longing for dear old Camelot.

Oh and the boat came empty of love
Carrying the finest of all ladies
A dying angel from above
Who tried to reach Camelot
Here lays the lady of Shalott...

My hands will not heal you
My deepest sorrow is in vain
As you turn pale and blue,
Parting to the land of the dead.
But sorrow is all I got,
So travel far lady of Shalott.

Track Name: If Only Tonight We Could Sleep - The Cure Cover
If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell

If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
And breathe...

Then an angel would come
With burning eyes like stars
And bury us deep
In his velvet arms

And the rain would cry
As our faces slipped away
And the rain would cry

Don't let it end...
Track Name: Laudanum
Simple enough
I'm exhausted
Terrible noise
And vibration

Vision is black
Tormented days
Trembling hands
Of shallow dirt

Seems so long. The devils are strong
The burden is bigger everyday
Oh roses and poison…

Drunk in desire now
And long lost for you
In the meadows of nightmares
Oh roses and poison

Fire deep the throat
To sever the skin
I'm drowning myself
Into another drop of despair
Cripples my heart, tears it apart
I'm not giving up
Of dancing in the meadows of paradise
My words come filled with doom
in this candle light
Now the cup is out of my sight
Gone into the far and darkened gloom
I dream for evermore
felling the loneliness of Lenore

Teach me dear raven
Where the sun doesn't burn
So I can finally dream of a poison
That will return
Oh help me gentle wine
to last one more night
This heart is not mine
Guide me back to light

Simple enough
I'm exhausted
Terrible noise
And vibration

Vision is black
Tormented days
Trembling hands
Of shallow dirt

Seems so long. The devils are strong
The burden is bigger every day
Oh roses and poison
Drunk in desire now
And long lost for you
In the meadows of a nightmare
Oh roses and poison

Teach me dear raven
Where the sun doesn't burn
So I can finally dream of a poison
That will return
Oh help me gentle wine
to last one more night
This heart is not mine
Guide me back to light

Keep this bottle laid before me
Chanting ambary melodies
Of times that will never ever come
Another drop of green luxury
I'm drowning myself in laudanum and mercury
How can I regret the life I've sold
This winter day is so cold
I may dream for evermore
For a glance of the lost Lenore
Track Name: Whispers of Osiris
Dance in the dark for me
Glance gently the river to be free
Seven years dying is not a lot
When you are a whisper on an open cut

Two and three and all your simple sympathy
A box of fleshy memories…

Ancient stones of old mysteries
I see the door but there are no keys
No voice in the muddy waters
To lift me up of these watery tragedies


And it grows and flows
Down a stream of consciousness
The silent whisper of a friend
Who dies over and over again…

- This is not a goodbye -
Sever the parts as chaos
- Just destiny -
- This is not a goodbye -
The magic never quite seems the same
- Just Destiny -
- This is not a goodbye -
Hold it up high enough
- Just Destiny -
- This is not a goodbye -
And call it by its name
- This is not a goodbye -

Seven angels crying is not a lot
When you are a whisper of an open cut
I miss the ghost as it came by
Every night waving goodbye
Join the pain
My dearest gloom of destiny
Join all this sweet insanity

And it grows and flows
Down a stream of consciousness
The silent whisper of a friend
Who dies over and over again…
