Track Name: Dandilionheart
What an ugly mess we stumbled into now
Many of you have great discoveries to learn about
and the sound of snapping chains
shall be a new forever sound

the phrasic tears of women, men and I
can fall from any human eye
don't you know what that even signifies
what a pity that for all these years
you've bathed yourselves in nothing but a lie

we come from 2284
to tell you that your struggles
have a end and just what is in store
is wholly good in fate
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait

We call ourselves the G.N.C
for Gender Neutralized Committee
the Gay N' Crafty Ones
the Great New Circle of Life
We can be anyone and anything
and everyone and everything
in how we are and who we are
and how we fight and how we love

we cast out the boilers
and we cast out the smilers
both drowning in their satins
on their cashmire floors
among the many things we fixed,
we gave our free wills
real weight
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait
just you wait

We call ourselves the G.N.C
for Gender Neutralized Committee
the Gay N' Crafty Ones
the Great New Circle of Life
We can be anyone and anything
and everyone and everything
in how we are and who we are
and how we fight and how we love

Every kind of evilness stands
high above you laughing now
how did it get there anyhow
It's been so long since we
remembered being that lost somehow

But you know that by our time,
all of this evilness will die
or we'll have taken it out in revolutionizing
We chose believing in respect
for those who never had respect before

We are the living proof you seek
we will persist forever
that we have the strength and courage
we can never be
buried in this soil
for we all posess the calm heart of a seed
that doesn't take the heart of any metal blade
doesn't take the brooding pessimism of the casting shade
we are crashing like a tidal wave
a spirit rolling everglade

Let all the rain come down
Let us all scream to the sky
Let us all see the sun
Let us all fly

Throw my defensives down
tearing my breast open wide
showing in silence
all things that are mine

Let all the rain come down
Let us all scream to the sky
Let us all see the sun
Let us all fly

Throw my defensives down
tearing my breast open wide
showing in silence
what for I will no longer die

Let all the rain come down
Let us all scream to the sky
Let us all see the sun
Let us all fly

We are alive


Goddexx bless your dandilionheart
that's seen so much in sunlight
Goddexx bless your dandilionheart
that's shed so much in moonlight
Goddexx bless your dandilionheart
that's bloomed for once and for all
Track Name: I Get A Rise
I get a rise
just by standing here
and getting in your sight
what a pest I must be

must be nice
treading on thin ice
me on yours
and you on mine
the ocean is my friend
you'd just get oil on your end

Even if you take my head
and arms and body to melt
down into your lead
my legs will still be standing
tattoo collection ever expanding
overstanding

my friends can make the
lightning strike down upon you
everywhere you try to run you'll be
under the scent of a gun
everywhere you try to run you'll be
under the scent of a gun

Why do you fear
to gaze upon the breast of your lords
why do you say they
have a face you could die in

could it be I am your lord
and you must strike me down
before I try ascending
am I just that condescending

I get a rise
for you know that I can rise
and decide to end your world
at any time

Would you even take my warning
with a changed direction
or would you walk right through my skin
with no discretion

everywhere you try to run you'll be
under the scent of a gun
everywhere you try to run you'll be
under the scent of a gun
Track Name: Periwinkle Death
I fall to peices
and slowly dry away
but with a single heartbeat
I come back and I am okay

A sort of chaotic healing
with the absence of feeling
yet it could save a life
to die a Periwinkle Death

Having all the freedom of
a peice of frozen time
I use my own quite well
I string my flowers
on a quivering chime

One get's a sample of that
great mystery action
and it seems that it could save a life
to die a Periwinkle Death

I know full well that this building's sure to fall
on top of me
But in my Periwinkle Death
I'm invincable like I'm made of candy
a simple fix to dodge the pain
by folding up into the soul of pain
a space I can make pure and wholesome
just by being there
someplace a lot less brighter
maybe lighter
take my low and bring in higher
into a blackened fire
weld and cough me out a fighter

Disassociate and disappear
but then I snap my fingers
and it's like I never left here

A sort of chaotic healing
with the absence of feeling
yet it could save a life
to die a Periwinkle Death
Track Name: Darling Don't You Know
It took time to get used to it all
working my way through the new upgrades
now I feel so much better
candidly draped in my lava leather

Since I left my home, I've felt the strange sensation
of something tearing apart
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart

I have been waiting for a long time
I have been waiting for the right time
to make my sweet discreet sixteen debut
and be the absolute reign of the brain-dead prime time

I can rule over monsters with a flash of the hips
with every breath shooting up the chart
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart

You will find I am hard to defeat
make a move love I can't be beat
I was made to be inside of your head
and I can stay with you long after your past dead

You make me shatter into little fragments
I like how it's not my audience for a start
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart

What are my ratings today
your destruction will shoot me to the top so they say
but just how can it be done
every thing I try is not the right kind of fun

I guess we'll have to do the grand unveiling
Pray to yourself that you can play this part
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart
darling don't you know it's been so long
how bout a little heart to heart


Darling don't you know
The coolest cat out up on the catwalk
Track Name: Burning Pearls
Restless sleeping waltzes
carving a rigid vision strange
i watch as the moon leaves
with no love left to give
i watch as the spiders return,
they know now is their prime
i watch as the trees grow spikes
and send a whisper call to the ocean
Tomorrow I learn why is it that I can burn
but leave no ashes behind
Today I will be in the present I see
for the first real time
I Yesterday learned again how to be cleansed
at least for the time
and dreaming of Burning Pearls in the places
that reach too high

Come on now let's start the
flooding of the wishing well
let's watch our ugly reality
crawl on out of its shell
the blood they spill
make their blood congeal
into the fairest soil in the land
into the skin tearing grains in the sand
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid
but I know you are,
I know you are
cause you

run so quickly
grasping
burning pearls
that melt your hands

The black death shoots into the sky
but the oxes keep sleeping
the rulers of fate and the keepers of time
have no clocks in their keeping
they hail to the thief, to the lord of the sith
who never thinks he's wrong just disagreed with
dancing on the grasping fingers of the new palace vines
looking to spatter a smidgeon of grime
like a potion in a cursed wizards eyes
and the sun comes down to incinerate
the fake dream of impossible paradise
that to one too many was the
guiding blacklight of a useless life

Come on now let's start the flooding of the wishing well
let's watch our ugly reality crawl on out of its shell
I will never remit into a hatred eye
I am blind to you
you have died to me
you have lied to liars
you have cried to your altars in shame
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid of you
let me dream, I'm not afraid
but I know you are,
I know you are
cause you

run so quickly
grasping
burning pearls
that melt your hands
so quickly
grasping
burning pearls
that melt your hands
so quickly
grasping
burning pearls
that melt your hands
so quickly
grasping
burning pearls
that melt your
sinister
ageing
molting
hands

let me dream
I'm not afraid of you

I'm dreaming
of burning pearls
Track Name: Tell Me I'm Cute Again Cause I Forgot
Tell Me I'm Cute Again Cause I Forgot
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I Thought
Tell Me I'm Real Again When I'm Made to Feel I'm Not
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I thought

AH IT
grinds me to a twig to see my
smiles and my sparkles running off again
they come back now and then

do I have to do some magic shit
to make me not feel so obscene
what tarot combination
do I have to draw to make
myself pristine

Tell Me I'm Cute Again Cause I Forgot
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I Thought
Tell Me I'm Real Again When I'm Made to Feel I'm Not
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I thought

Look into the Mirror you
and ask her and yourself
who's a pretty one,
that's me

then look to the mortal earth
make them keep that in mind
it's not up them to be deciding
that today you will be kind


Now get out with that self doubt
it's way too big and loud
my heads got other things to give a fuck about
I'm always passing everyday
doesn't matter in what way
you know deep down
that's what your little spirits want to say

Tell Me I'm Cute Again Cause I Forgot
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I Thought
Tell Me I'm Real Again When I'm Made to Feel I'm Not
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I thought

I slip into a dress
that is a ghost
that is a girl
and she is happy
so are we
we are the fashion of the century
might slip into a face
that is a demon
for a different time
that happens
it's like a crime but
I can't blame her

Tell Me I'm Cute Again Cause I Forgot
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I Thought
Tell Me I'm Real Again When I'm Made to Feel I'm Not
Tell Me Again So I Can Say That's What I thought
Track Name: Another Rain Song
I used to think that half the world loves the rain
would live and die for and make love to the rain
I used to think the other half would do the same
if instead there was pain instead of the rain

I used to think that I always liked the sun
much like how i used to think that i was your son
two birds, one stone, now life feels much more fun
and i dont even have to please anyone

Falling in diamonds along with the snow
she just became my girlfriend you know
her inner warmth's something that she never shows
I call her my snow angel and she just glows


I used to think all my threads could be resewn
and all the cotton tucked back into my bones
I think I seem to have a small candy heart
it seems to be quite sour as a sweet tart

I used to think that I always felt the leaves
much in the way my mountains sway when I breathe
Guess that the leaves are to be true feeling me
blowing up in my face to try to rescue me

Falling in lydians across all my scales
happens to be that dead men tell all my tales
I've got a secret exit when all else fails
riding the crest of tears from my solar sails
Track Name: Moth Girl
my heart beats too whimsical
dont i
dont i
more like a fan
than a bass drum
on its side
gnaw at my nails
write songs about the rain
and the chasms
there'd be in my bed
if i was a moth girl

wings beat like pendulums
gone high
gone high
i skip time as fast
as i can feel it alone
make love to
your glorious light
i guess that the pain
stays the same
when I am a moth girl

always invisible walls in the way
that's another thing that doesn't change
i promise you im beautiful
you just have to look real hard
or not hard at all
Track Name: Dark-Light Position
I
tend to say
desaturation
is my
one enhancement

you
you've got your kicks
you've got your tricks
and they hang all around
this apartment

I have not been very all right
I've just stared for 5 days at a void white
why do they tell me every night
there's a new explanation of every kind

We
both seem to live
in our abstractions
in our distractions
don't we

and I
I must admit
it's so much nicer now
I just hope that there
will be more times

Won't you remove my wrapping with a steel knife
stretch me nicely into a burmuda kite
why do they tell me every night
to watch the autumn leaves fall,
adjust the scale to my height

I
would like to think
that I could blink
and you would still
be holding your smile

I
I hope
that these
are things
that I am allowed
to feel this often


I've been courting a thing in mind
while a dark familiar faded behind me
why do they tell me every night
to move my dark position towards the light
Track Name: Damsel Lilith Pansy
i came to you naked in the grass
was i now the way we always asked for
don't mind me
somehow it doesn't phase how i seem
for in the very same dream

i came to you naked in a field
and you let me know again that i was real
is there a distance between them
even the flowers in the fields both stayed the same

and the more i thought about it
the higher and larger the flowers would grow
until they'd wrap me up and bury me
bud and bloom and grow around me
on me
in me

I am a Damsel Lillith Pansy
I'm small and I'm gay but I look quite fancy
I'll be your dress if you take me dancing
I'll be distressed if you leave me antsy

and it didn't matter anymore
no it didn't matter anymore
never again it didn't matter
didn't matter anymore



If i could split myself in two
and take both paths on a fork in the road
I know I'd never be lost
but maybe that's because one
would actually make it

and the other would die in the frost
or just meet me in the middle
and we'd know something
was left behind
left behind

and the more i think about it
the larger in number the paths would grow
until it's just a plain of endless soil
that all my sibling flowers return in


I am a Damsel Lillith Pansy
I'm small and I'm gay but I look quite fancy
I'll be your dress if you take me dancing
I'll be distressed if you leave me antsy

and it didn't matter anymore
no it didn't matter anymore
never again it didn't matter
didn't matter anymore

i see a pair of familiar footsteps walking past me
almost crushing me
I'm not the child that you remember
look what pollen has done for me

I came to you naked in a field
and you gazed at me, longingly
I felt your lips
upon my hips
I guess
this is what we wanted
whatever it is
Track Name: Give You My Earth
I'll Give you my earth
you wonderful
sweetness girl

I'll give you my earth
you silly sad thing
of fire and water and air

I will help you ground yourself
and I will help you feel what flies
and dies all through you
Track Name: Pretty Perfect Hands
When it rains
she is squealing
when it pours
they both are screaming
and then the lightning
crashes down
making the planting of the seed
they tossed around
It's so hard for God to
not make a sound
Satan said we should've done my place
no screaming's ever heard there

God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked
and sweaty on her legging
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
inched herself slowly foward
God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked and sweaty
smugly picking at her tongue ring
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
inched herself slowly foward


She said of one so pure
you must be drowning
and the cheeks of God
turned rosy pink
she looked down halfsmiling
she felt her tail wrap around her waist
her sharp black nails purred down her face
their bulges touched,
they were each other's saving grace

God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked
and sweaty on her legging
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
inched herself slowly foward
God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked and sweaty
smugly picking at her tongue ring
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
then produced The Blunted Sword


Even in all her brightness
she still has many demons inside her
she moans them all into Satan's mouth
they cancel out
but she leaves just one inside her
to save for later
they're always multiplying
they both know that
that's how they keep it exciting
for God is Mercy
and she pleads it while she is behind

God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked
and sweaty on her legging
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
inched herself slowly foward
God's pretty perfect hands
wet and dripping vasolene
while Satan sat naked and sweaty
smugly picking at her tongue ring
God's pretty perfect hands
shaking slowly reaching toward
Satan said yr safe with me and
inched herself slowly foward
Track Name: Let Me Remind You
Let me remind you where you're wanted
Let me remind you where you are most powerful
Let me remind you who your friends really are
you may cry a bit too hard just to warn you

Let me remind you where you're worshiped
Let me remind you where you are most in tune
Let me remind you who your family really are
you may find it a bit bizarre just to warn you

Let me remind you where you're seen
Let me remind you where you're felt
Let me remind you who loves you the way you are
every burn and every scar and every darkness

Let me remind you what you've been
Let me remind you all the universes you've made good again
Let me remind you what your destinies all are
you may fly a bit too far if you don't remember

Finding new weapons
to keep us from falling north
pedaling backwards, sallying forth
past our world's end
I've put in place my plan
to renegade
this is my serenade
to the witchy world
Down a black hole
that bleeds light from the other side
and they chant, "This was the life
that you were meant for".
Everyone's the Queen round here
we rule all we survey
and the day we rule ourselves
has finally come today

and the time of our own dynasties
begins whenever we say
and the image our of majesties
becomes the standard play


Let me remind you where you're wanted
Let me remind you where you are most powerful
Let me remind you who our enemies really are
you may cry a bit too hard
you may find it a bit bizarre
you may fly a bit too far
through every burn and every scar
you'll find yourself in
Track Name: Never Having Or Always
Never having eaten
drawing on the walls with chalk
getting lost in your voice
however many miles we walk

Never having slept well
smiling when you play guitar
falling sleepily on your chest
wonder what the heck we are

Don't mind me
please see me
don't kiss me
don't dismiss me

Come find me
you know me
you dress me
in the ways that you guess me

Never having been fun
that's a game you play so well
I wish that I had more to you
other than my silence to sell

Never always verbal
want to never be again
thinking so much clearer
armed with just a writing pen

Come learn me
where I'm at
please kiss me
I miss that

Let's build up
a system
a garden
of our stims

Don't lose me
But don't take it
as a rule
you can't break it
string me up
tell me your curse
keep me safe
inside your purse, if you want
