Track Name: Red Automatic
Red automatic is ready to go
He’s a devil but he doesn’t know
Your sugar sweet static
A lethal blow
Red automatic is ready to go

Red automatic, you know what you do
Take a lie by the balls and it’s true
You’re mad and you’re manic
And I don’t trust you
Red automatic you know what you do

Red automatic, you might be
You might be the threat to my throne
Red automatic, you might be
You might be the beast in my bone

Red automatic, you played your hot streak
He didn’t mean to be simple and weak
Your eyes of acid are starting to leak
Red automatic, you played your hot streak
Track Name: Mania
O mania
You’re a menacing mistress, o mania
O mania
You’re the only lady for me, mania

If your family wishes
I will sweep you off your feet
You will be all mine

O mania
You’re a towering temptress, o mania
O mania
You have returned with thunder, o mania

As my goddess wishes
You will be my lights and my law
Do I want you anymore?

No, no, no!
I don’t!

As my goddess wishes
You will be my lights and my law
Do I want you anymore?
Track Name: The Beast Shall Play
Rain basilisk awry
And be slain
The rogue runs abound my fall
Our God is shamed

And the beast will play

Slow wish below the bride
And be wed
To sultan ghost with hide
Of black and red

And the beast shall play

Drums lace the demon dry
Upon my twist
My dream sweetened by the dose
I’ve been kissed

By the beast at play
Track Name: Eastern Roar / White Rings, Black Robes
You twist with the white
With all your might
In summer gold hue
Be like a war
From the east I hear the roar
The soul will admire you

You rise!

You seem like a bride
Easy and alive
Your song is lunar
With darkness and grace
Of eternal taste
Your eastern roar rings far

You rise!

All weakness is crime
From friend to foe on a dime
I hear your eastern roar chime

Your colours are bold
Of soft browns and sweet gold
Your art is your ceasefire
You give me my name
I’ve fallen from the frame
Your wrath I will sire

You rise!

_______


White rings, on your fevered hands
Soft charms and golden bands
Carry words from molten lands
White rings and tattooed strands

Black robes, hide your figure frail
The wishes of mankind along your tail
Shall bring disease among the hail
Black robes mask a deeper veil

White rings, spells and frozen fate
The wiser warrior will never wait
In a duel for dominion over hate
White rings are the chosen bait

Black robes, hold a soul divine
Caress a reptilian spine
Will make a man a goldmine
Black robes of rich design

White rings, each with promised shade
Leak passions of subtle trade
The right to die in raw parade
White rings on your tomb are laid

Black robes, close a kingdoms’ trust
The throne belies a servants’ lust
The white rings are left to rust
And the black robes turn to dust
Track Name: Araneae
All my sweet eyes are weakened
By regal I am worthy of
But your resin poison leaks from the burn

All my feet are reaching out for life
Full of my own
Kindness meets love in the dark I’m red

All my silver, leave alone
My fools of muddy grey
All brush home
My ghoul is precious foul

Oh my fool I’m always easy
To be underground
Won’t you be my master? Read me loud

All my silver, leave alone
My fools of muddy grey
All brush home
My ghoul is precious foul
Track Name: She Loves Maroon
She has a mind all sold
She’ll trust her heart in braids
She makes her riverbed in June
And she loves Maroon

She wants a new love soon
She has sweet taste for now
She lies naked in my room
And she loves Maroon

She tries to race the actress
And folds her heart away
She's seen in every way
And she loves Maroon

She shows and holds her rings
So in need of something
She has never been an angel before
And she loves Maroon

She treats her blushes well
She gives sugar to my anger
She makes my desires bloom
And she loves Maroon

She loves Maroon
Become a queen too soon
She's so in tune
She loves Maroon
Track Name: You Are Metal
I’m a metal man
I have a right to slaughter
I’ve got to maim my soul
Let my body rest
Be my easy rider
Light the blaze and be my doll
Be my doll, be my doll
I’m a metal!

I’m a metal man
I’m a tool for torture
Girl you won’t believe my grease
Soon my breed will rot
Just follow the water
Won’t you let my body feast?
Let me feast, let me feast
On your metal!
