Track Name: Lady Made of Clay
Lyrics:
I wear a cloak of hands
and in my pocket I can feel the sands
my body us only skin bound
there's a ringing but I hear no sounds
your voice will hang in the air
long after you've been there
there's something coming through the wall
I try to stop it but it takes my all

All that I've ever done
will be taken by the sun
my body's gonna turn green
but first I will be queen
and I'll fight that nagging hound
I'm not yet biting the ground
put colour in all that's grey
before I fade away

You can't see the shadow that lives by my right side
You can't feel the malice in those awful eyes
You can't see the shadow that lives by my right side
You can't feel the malice in those awful eyes

A clay lady lies in the bed
I feed her breaking head
she reaches out, kisses his hand
she's changed who I am
Tiny hand traces over the wall
outside come gull calls
a smile breaks through the stare
but I don't know who's there

You can't see the shadow that lives by my right side
You can't feel the malice in those awful eyes
You can't see the shadow that lives by my right side
You can't feel the malice in those awful eyes

A clay lady lies in the bed
trying to catch what I have said
A clay lady lies in the bed
I can't mend your breaking head
Track Name: Ghost in the Forest
Lyrics:
In a house in the woods lives a ghost and a girl
he strokes her veins and outpours all the guts from her soul
she tries to steal a kiss but her mouth is left cold, cold, cold
In the house there is warmth and the smell of candles
soft to warm her skin and a fire for her bones
but a ghost cannot love back so she leaves for the forest, the forest, the forest, the forest

and OH GOD she misses him and OH GOD she aches for him
but he is a ghost and ghosts don't love girls back

She's with the trees and she's drinking alone
her eyes are wide open but she can't see at all
there's poison in her blood now and she's turned her eyes raw, ripped, red, and raw

and OH GOD she misses him and OH GOD she aches for him
but he is a ghost and ghosts don't love girls back

and she lost all her friends
consumed by a man
she lost all her glitter
consumed by a man
and she lost all her friends
consumed by a man
she lost all her glitter
consumed by a man
Track Name: Monster by the Sea
Monster lives by the sea
monster never tried to leave
monster lives with his family
and monster took my breath from me
Monster is made form other skin
he said he's never love again
but needed to practise sin
he bit me and now I am him

I am a monster I've grown a second skeleton
I'll love you never but you are my medicine

Now I miss monster by the sea
him and his wife they've broken me
they like to show me how they eat
I close my eyes but feel their heat
In the dark there grows a storm
giant sky-cat taking form
beware the sweet, beware the coward
pretty little masks have power

teach me fang teach me fang teach me fang teach me fang

and I am a monster I've grown a second skeleton
I'll love you never but you are my medicine
