Track Name: Vitae & The Pale Horse - Black Licorice
Black Licorice

I'm sick with your worry and worried when you're sick
I wonder what happens when you finally understand this
Will it all collapse like the lungs of a fish?
Will it gasp in the mud of the black licorice?

Black Licorice

Sweet on the tongue when it comes from his ashes
If that's what you think then you've lost all your mind
If bleeding is perfect then let's bring on the classics
The Romans and leather and Socrates wine

Black Licorice

Burn burn burn and then burn some more
I don't care what you think and what you think that it's for
I didn't come from a mother I came from a whore
I ran toward her arms on her way out the door
credits
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Moan
Come away too far to find the case-& the brain starts tripping in a minor way-and I woke up quickly and I dreamed the same-and I sweat and I scream when feel your name.
There's a little bit of my insane-in the concrete soda & the asphalt rain-and I don't know if you feel as near to far-and I'm driving you quickly with a broken heart.

A cried a little tear when the last one change-cause I felt myself alone but I didn't know no pain-and I think I'm gonna die with a smiling face-the longest sleep cause there is no place.
A long ear whisper but what's that you say-and you took well baby because they all gon change-and I did what said I promise I did-cause I can't stand looking at your face again

And they moan a little when they go and they hold a little when they hold
Track Name: Vitae & The Pale Horse - Snake Eyes
Snake Eyes
They caught you crying
Dirty. lies.
They always lying
You can't get caught up with their caught when you're stuck here always trying
Go by
The years go by and slowly i am
Don't fly
No use in flying
You can't tread the night so gently when the sickness cause the dying
Oh Rosita came up walking with her guns into town
And lord They caught you sleeping when you wasn't around
And I can't find a friend in this whole goddamn town
I guess Im stuck inside a whisper

Paint my
Paint my brain with a brush and a train
Get high
Get high slowly on the dust that remains
Write my
Write my mother and then burn up the page
Bide time
I can't proceed until the doctor takes the stage
Track Name: The Dirty Fingers - Evil Baby (Full Evil Version)
When I feel good-you make me feel bad
When I feel bad-You make me feel worse than that
You're fucking evil baby-You make me feel so sad
You're fucking evil baby-You make me so goddamn mad

When I feel fine fine-You make me suffer all the time
When I feel sexy-You make me wanna die
You're fucking evil baby-You make me feel so goddamn sad
You're fucking evil baby-You make me so goddamn mad

You're worse than the curse (x3)
That the curse had
Track Name: The Black Bullet Promise - 1st Victim
Who can tell me where the truth begins and the bullshit ends?
Who can speak about the wages of all your sin?
If the killer is the monster, then who is your friend?
Tell me-who is your friend?

Since when did the wicked rest? Since when did the wicked rest?
Tell me when did the wicked rest.

I wanna stay with you. (Just Bleed Out)
Not gonna tell me what to do. (Just Bleed Out)
I'll let you know when I'm through. (Just Bleed Out)
I'll let you know when I'm through.

Just breathe out. Breathe out.
Track Name: Vitae & The Pale Horse - Cursed One
My mind is burning-oh take this blade
You said you'd help me-but you never came

Most of this trouble-get ahead
Keep on going till I'm dead
Hear them whisper words I said
You shoulda known me better than that

Gypsy woman told me-she said listen son
I just cant see nothing but a cur-sed one

Most of this trouble-get ahead
Keep on going till I'm dead
Hear them whisper words I said
You shoulda known me better than that


My heart is heavy & it weighs a ton
I'm busy thinking about the world to come
And this song in the end
When the beast is gone

Most of this trouble-get ahead
Keep on going till I'm dead
Hear them whisper words I said
You shoulda known me better than that
Track Name: The Dirty Fingers (with Chocolate Velvet) - Toe the Line
The hammer's in the back of a cold and honest phone
I caught you in the pack of wolves you swore you'd leave alone
I'm howling at the moon but I swear I wonder why
And if god is real then I bet he toes the line.

Toe the line

Why I gotta quit baby if quitting is the same
I found it first & then you found your fucking name
And everyone running say they a winner at this game
But everyone darling is a liar and a fake -I bet they toe the line

Toe the Line

I just wanna say...
Track Name: The Black Bullet Promise - The Swing
People come and go, tie them to a rope
Give them all a dose of the swing
Well I miss my ma and I never knew my pa
But the swing

I don't wanna go to the swing
Well my mama didn't love me and my daddy didn't know nothing

Love is in the throat, Death is in the boat
Hanging from a tree in the swing
Well they're both the same, when you're dealing with the dame
In the swing

When you're gone they say the fire will keep you there
They tie that knot and wash the sins right out their hair
And no one knows the difference

C'mon Play it Man

The laws that they have made, take me to the grave
Not the last to go to the swing
Someone always find a way to break your spine
In the swing

Jesus is the ghost, the ghost I fear the most
They took his weary bones to the swing
I payed for all his crimes, he'll die a long, long time
In the swing

Coming off the floor
Closing all the doors to the swing
They changing all the rules, with a growing group of fools
With the swing

My mama didn't love me and my daddy didn't know nothing
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - The Second Word
Call the sound the final way
And the final way is called in the sound
There’s only one way that I love you baby
And that’s forever
So, yes I want you to stick around

The second word is said to try and save
What I can’t save with words is music
And music is my story
And my love for you

Oh.
Track Name: Vitae & The Pale Horse - Saint Judas & Vapor
You can't catch them & can't make a promise to
You might have the seed if you give it all through
No stranger that's left who knows you too
You're breaking promise like it was-made to break the rule

You're a vapor. A midnight caller in a town that's filled with dead
A total faker. Another wizard with no power in his head.

You told me one way & then I found myself real lost
I made a promise and now my promise is paying all the cost.
I'm fainting slowly on the suffragette and blood that I've lost.
Losing my mind because only answer to the boss.

You're a vapor. A midnight caller in a town that's filled with dead
A total faker. Another wizard with no power in his head.

Sweet Saint Judas if you would have warned me of this pain
I woulda packed my bags and headed for the train
Woulda never come home-I would never have stayed
I woulda dedicated my life to drinking away the pain.
Drinking away the pain
Drinking away the pain
Track Name: Strange Kitten - Scissors
Snap the scissors
Lustful quiver
Color fits her
You'd save it but I'm begging silver

My destruction
Misuse the function
Hidden instruction
Was sold too low-apply a deduction

To your credit-I know it's sadness
To your credit-I know it's madness
I woke up with the blues too
You leave me but I can't leave you

When you're gone girl-I think of nothing
But slowly dying
I said I can but came home crying
I scream your name and...
I scream your name and...
I said I could but came home crying

Snap the scissors
Lustful quiver
Color fits her
You'd save it but I'm begging silver

My destruction
Misuse the function
Hidden instruction
Was sold too low-apply a deduction

I feel as though the rest frustrated
I love you but you don't know me
Come on up behind the scene
It's a trap you know this fine machine
We roll through life and we might find a way

Play your song until they say
Come on up and take my place
We roll through life and we might find a way

Snap the scissors
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Sugar & Rain
Whatcha gonna do when it all caves in-when the world comes to score & no man come to win
In a flash & a buzz in the truth of the sight-the death comes swift in the dark of the night-the bug & the jewel & the blood of the fight-yes the blood of the fight.

Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow
Come to get you
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow

The jackal and the fool come to stop with the fame-The sigh is the rule and the truth has no frame-
You wait for the coming but it already came
It left it in the corner with sugar and the rain
You gotta take the middle when the best is the same.

And if I'm sinking then I'm sinking in the boat - and you're the river and you pray to make me float
(and that's the crime)
And when the band comes and their running into walls-I'll take my smoke & I'll organize my drawers
(of what is mine)
There's a falling even after all the falls-your head is cracked & slowly seeping through the shopping malls
(and all the bullshit that comes from a life spent with withdrawals)
I'm stuck withdrawing all the time.

I sold the other glasses cause they lost all their hue-I wanted looking backwards instead I looked into you. Their selling all our souls in the first years of school. The corporal & the kisses & the finance so cruel.
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Matches
Oh sweet snakes and the world of fame
Oh pretty fakes and the one's that feel the same
I gotta spiral deep inside my brain
I'll make this music till there's nothing that remains

I'm kicking matches to the curving rock & rolla of the soul
And if there's something that you need well baby let me take control

Oh Saint Sarita she left it sitting on a plane
I was the one because I was the one that felt the same
A million words and every one of them rhymes with pain
I left the murder and then I felt insane

(chorus)

Now comes the hard part & run
And weren't we all sick of having fun?
Where can you go? Where can you come?

Nowhere. No one.

(chorus)
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - West Coast
West of the coast and east of your heart...what I tried to hold together gonna tear me apart. I seen it before yes I seen it exclaimed is the blame of the heart all the name of the game?And if I was still young the world would tear me to pieces-the radical son of a failure in thesis.

Run to the game & embrace it the same & tell everyone you knew the seed of my love. Hold onto fame & make it real plain & when they start in pointing fingers-kill the seed of my love.
It's all gonna crush when your brain turns to mush.


It's all I can do just to hold back the years I'm drowning in sorrow & I'm choking on fears

And it all goes so quickly in a flash of the light. The questions of sadness like a thief in the night.

And I rose into the sickness and the mass in my brain. I'm coming up slowly & slowly dying again.

Run to the game & embrace it the same & tell everyone you knew the seed of my love. Hold onto fame & make it real plain & when they start in pointing fingers-kill the seed of my love.
It's all gonna crush when your brain turns to mush.
Track Name: The Dracula Glasses (Chocolate Velvet) - Smoke
I wanna tell you baby bout the things I wrote. Adjusting the transistors all the words get spoke. I'm coming up from nothing much and I'm borrowing a note. It's less of a disaster than you first fucking thought.

Oh my my long goodbye
I wanna tell you baby how my friends get by. Always hard. Always broke. I wanna quit it baby but I'm smoke.

A need for looking backwards in the sugar can. I wrote a fucking lyric bout the pouring. When the world is driving crazy you got no choice but insane. A sunny sided face fries the egg yolk freight train.

(chorus)

I need to hold your smile in my memory. It's us against the world when you're loving me. It was always only you meant to climb my tree. I walk into my shadow of a reverie.

Chorus
Track Name: Vitae & The Pale Horse - Hole in My Head
Minister morning & the equitable band
You're writing a letter just to pressure the man
It's coming up short like a torturous faction
The ascent of rules is the law of attraction

What you want from me?
I'm drowning alone in your waking ecstasy
I'm alone and at home in your earl grey tea
I'm falling apart and apart at the seams

I know what you wanting you're wanting right now
The atom, the flower, the bridge and the spout
It's falling up north but it came from the south
Efficacious valley and the blood in my mouth

What you want from me?
I'm drowning alone in your waking ecstasy
I'm alone and at home in your earl grey tea
I'm falling apart and apart at the seams

I know what you wanting you're wanting right now
The atom, the flower, the bridge and the spout
It's falling up north but it came from the south
Efficacious valley and the blood in my mouth

Try to find a way to sing a song
Birth is crying in the east for information
Westerly you're gonna fall and come
Your music smile and that's suppose to shone

Minister morning & the equitable band
You're writing a letter just to pressure the man
It's coming up short like a torturous faction
The ascent of rules is the law of attraction
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Skulls
Come & meet my sorrow time & time again. And you beg & borrow-look too far within. I can see your madness right below your skin. I think your smile is bullshit-but you smile the same again.

Oh the numbers chase but you only understand the paint. You suffer slowly in the waster and the change it takes your taste.

They came to kill or leave us-only got your skull. You hold the fire of Eros then you trip & fall. I gotta zombie necklace-got the means to call. All the fire of hades rattles in your skull.
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Final Act
And here they come like running ants up on the hill
My world is done and all my moments that are real
I can't pretend I ever felt all these feelings that I feel
I'm a king, I'm a ring-I'm a soldier in the field

I cried for mother at a time when I was young. She didn't want me, didn't need her only son. And if it mattered then I would right before the wrong.
The gates of hell. The William Tell.
Now it's gone!

And if a heaven no one goes there anymore. They walk the earth and curse the birth and wait for nothing like before. I walk the line but can't tell time - I can't tell nothing anymore. Another hour another second break the door

Run run run run run then you stop
Stop stop stop stop then you rot
Rot rot rot rot inside the plot
Ain't no sleep for the sheep
Ain't no cure for what you got
Track Name: Chocolate Velvet - Leviathan
Where you going baby when they come for you-Leviathan and return of the screw. Running up that coin to forget the zoo. All this suffering is all fucking true.

A march to kill the hunger is a march to come. I was praying when I wondered where did praying come from
Another kiss to kill infection another kiss for the sun

And you're quiet like a shotgun
When the shotgun talks
And you were busy making faces
When the faces were blocked

And I notice sudden interest in the fate of our lives
Is apocolyptic cameras
In the devil's eyes

A place to put your kart wheels
A place for certain peace
We were busy making nothing
We were hunger for the feast.
