She waits for him to say it He waits for her to come around She wishes he would press her He feels it pointless to make a sound Standing on the edge...of a transatlantic void Standing on the edge...of a mass of tangled lines Standing on the edge...of a transatlantic void They wish that time could go backward Redraw the map that got them there Each still insists that they love the other But with this gap they’re getting nowhere Standing on the edge...of a transatlantic void Calling long-distance...through a mass of tangled lines Standing on the edge...of a transatlantic void Trying not to fall...into a region less defined

You, sir, captured me, lured me then captured me True, sir, you tortured me, teased me then tortured me Now you hold the key, you only can open me One man do I see, but through your touch I’m strangely free Your kiss is my command... You took power over me, a power you must use responsibly I’m your lady, I give myself to you quite willingly Your kiss is my command, your lips my master Your kiss is my command, but I’m running out of breath Your kiss is my command, I am yours, take me faster Your kiss is my command.... So shrill, the melody, like a serpent you charm me I will follow your lead, I fall into your rhythm naturally You still beckon me away, from worries of the day you beckon me My thrill, the little games we play, pretending to obey so helplessly Your kiss is my command, your lips my master Your kiss is my command, but I’m running out of breath Your kiss is my command, I am yours, take me faster Your kiss is my command....

In every ray of sun there’s you.... in any kind of weather, in any weather You part the sheets of rain You bring me rays of sun In the sky every cloud is lined by you... In the sky every cloud is lined by you! In a hurricane Storm of wind and rain In a hurricane Storm of wind and rain ...you are the eye Thunder cracks drowned out by the whisper of you... in any kind of weather, in any weather Lightning flashes reveal the face of you.... You part the sheets of rain You bring me rays of sun In the dark my way is lit by you... In the dark my way is lit by you!

Man of War 03:59
Purple bubble, crescent filled with air Riding easy, waves transport you there Capping water so that you can breathe While beneath, tails of poison seethe Immoble floating violet balloon Accidental violence presumed Seeming passive, do you mean to maim? Dragged behind, your venom stings the same Spineless, perverted You can’t help it, can you? Invertebrate, deserted You can’t help it, can you? Man of war Man of war Spineless, perverted You can’t help it, can you? Invertebrate, deserted You can’t help it, can you? Man of war

The Moral 04:21
Oh... it’s here again All the way from right behind Near...but ever mute Stalks and measures love and defines sin Go...ing page by page The clues just aren’t adding up Eyes may not see it all And the shadow refuses to engage The moral takes its cloak off at the end The moral takes its cloak off at the end Ah...this cloudy day Heaven hidden high above Have...you seen the one The one who knows but never will say Now...left all alone Every step as judgement wills Only time will tell What is liquid, what is set in stone The moral takes its cloak off at the end The moral takes its cloak off at the end Disciples at the door Self-proclaimed So easy So tame The moral takes its cloak off at the end The moral takes its cloak off at the end We’re on our own....until then The moral takes its cloak off at the end.

You had me fooled Dressed in your costume of cool. Propped up your ego with a uniform you made: Your great construction. Oh self-professed loser Firewater-cum-friend-abuser Protected by layers of leather and chrome It was all for the mirror But you let me in We swapped our thoughts from within, We went back and forth, trusting and defending, Never quite giving in (CHORUS:) Well we made war, and it wasn’t good Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh. We made war, and it wasn’t good We’ve got unfinished business. I took you for a rebel An advocate of the devil It’s what you saw in me—what you wanted to be So you hyou had to bend me. It did no good You never quite understood I didn’t want to fit in a prefabricated mold Just to please you When I moved away You tried to get me to stay. But you stopped with that, wouldn’t give me a reason Then didn’t say goodbye CHORUS One day we may intersect Could we — We’ve got unfinished business One day we may intersect Could we wrap it up then? This may forever be Just one of life’s loose ends. Out of the blue You called to connect us anew I wouldn’t play your game, but then gave in later Your turn to refuse.

Nighttime covers your head Still you can’t close your eyes You want to sink into a peaceful sleep The night feels like forever The day is a massive leap But a hand reaches in It pulls you into the darkness A dare you can’t refuse An unknown prize You’ve got nothing to lose But sleep Damn you hope Damn you sanity Damn you hope Giving up would be so easy Your will has taken on a life of its own Marching through the streets with you on its back One inch of visibility Carried on through the crowd A human sea Of hope Damn you hope Damn you sanity Damn you hope Giving up would be so easy

Mary Magdalene Just look at what you've done You've left me here, you've gone away Just to care for some holy one Oh Maggie love of mine It's just so hard to believe After four long years together You'd cause my heart to grieve Oh forgive me love For I find I wish him dead! Though I know he's come to heal the world He's wounded me instead! I am the woman behind the woman The woman behind the woman behind the man Jesus Christ, my love Why must you speak his name? You and I built a life together Long before he came You used to sell yourself to men I don't know which is worse to see Now it seems as though you've sold your soul And you give your body to him for free! I am the woman behind the woman The woman behind the woman behind the man Mary Magdalene History will give you a home But I will be long forgotten Not a footnote in the tome!
