My spine Is a corridor Each room filled With so many horrors I climb up to its peak My wrists becoming weak Hers is the voice of all my demons My skin begins to dry and crack Horrific vision finely honed The antlers bursting from my back As I am crowned with a halo of bone My skull Is a shapeless void Inside Every pathway leads to torment I reach up toward the crown The sweetest dream of drowning My soul is splitting at the seams My skin begins to dry and crack Horrific vision finely honed The antlers bursting from my back As I am crowned with a halo of bone No map to guide my way My skull Shapeless void Inside The crown Dream of dying My soul My soul is split

I am not of this place The ice within my veins And eyes that are as black As blackest night from end to end She cannot bear to love What she cannot abide Cold cruelty blooms inside To poison all who dare to try You stole from their stories Your daughter stole a child You’re locked in the hazelwood And rotting in exile I am not of this world A story not a girl A bridge that forms in me Between the places I have gone I cannot touch her skin It burns with emptiness She wants to cut me open Bleed me dry to forge a door I hear it calling me It whispers through the trees The world I left behind so Long ago floats like a dream The feather, bone, & comb I know I’m not alone And everything is watching me With eyes that can’t be seen Bound like a book i can never read Stitched into me like a crooked seam Alice three times is the story she wove Spun like a web, every thread made of gold It follows me wherever I go

Sink with me We’ll lay at the bottom of this void Forever Stay with me You know that I cannot let you leave Remember Take your place Your throne has been empty far too long Your highness Take your time You know i’ll be waiting here for you Forever We have such sights to show you We have such sights to show you Find me flesh And prey on the arrogance of men Deceivers Drink of this The blood that you spill to make me whole To free me Solve this box Lament when they’re summoned by your base Desires We have such sights to show you Both pain and pleasure so divine We have such sights to show you Inside the labyrinth of your mind

(Every pulse a beckoning) (Searching your face for a hint of affinity) Be still-- A shaky hand cannot build this Machine Devil's in the details It burns Take my love into your hands It burns Throw it in the fire Feed the flame… This cold Penetrates into my bones And melts As I turn to steam This heart is built upon a plan of souls This heart Playing to a broken beat I turn to you… (But) your eyes, they lie Green as the grass beside the river I don't know why I'm Giving so much of myself To my own Enemy Can't fix this Machine I can't Tell what is real with this Shadow Trailing my every breath Softly I tread on flowers that Lead the way Into your Heart I wish What I see in front of me Was real But it's just pretend again This heart Powers the machine I'm in but This heart Cannot take a hit again Your eyes, they lie (Grease the gears) Green as the grass beside the river (Watch them spin) I don't know why I'm Losing so much of myself To my own Enemy Can't fix this Machine

Skin-Taker 06:59
Watch the screen filled with static While the tide is coming in Feel the storm in your belly How did this all begin? He’s in your head He wants you dead Tear the teeth from your mouth Tear the skin from your face Pay the toll to gain safe passage You have to go inside He never died He wants your hide He’s in your head He wants you dead He never died He wants your hide It’s not a dream It’s on the screen We cannot run His will is done He’s made of teeth Jawbone the thief He wants your skin Don’t let him in
