Beggar Princess

Beggar Princess

The Fairytale Waltz

The Fairytale Waltz

The Fairytale Waltz 

I bask in words of gloom 
I love the fact we’re all doomed 
So while you stand there sniggering 
Beware of the wrath you’re triggering 

But that snigger turns into a smile 
And you won’t step aside 

All of my black days suddenly burst into light ’fore my eyes 
It’s like a childrens book where everything is neat and alright 
I hate a fairytale as much as anyone might 
But it’s time for me to die 

The hell am I to do with you girl? 
Where’s the catch in changing my world? 
Bag up your love and leave me rotting here 
I won’t be no punchline in a romantic comedy 

Am I sure I don’t want to go? 
Well girl, I’m fucked if I know 

All of my black days suddenly burst into light ’fore my eyes 
It’s like a childrens book where everything is neat and alright 
I hate a fairytale as much as anyone might 
But it’s time for me to die 

All of my black days suddenly burst into light ’fore my eyes 
It’s like a childrens book where everything is so neat and so right 
I hate a fairytale as much as anyone might 
But it’s time for me to die 
Yeah it’s time for me to die 
Tonight I must die

Beggar Princess 

Hey to you my darling 
Have you looked into a mirror lately 
’Cause I’ve been seeing things 
You’ve grown up so much 
I can’t see the end of you 
You’re head in the clouds and your toes dug in the sand 

I want to steal this 
From you, my beggar princess 
And yes, it’s just a moment 
Of truth with you and me in it 

Hey to you my darling 
I’ve woken up to a morning sun 
That draws a halo ’round your head 
Innocence I’ve mocked 
I’ve laughed in scorn 
But now a look at you is like a slap in my old face 

I want to steal this 
From you, my beggar princess 
And yes, it’s just a moment 
Of truth with you and me in it 

So why should we die? 
So why should we die? 
We’re special, you and I 

We got this far 
To fall apart 
Oh, but no 

Hey to you my darling 
Have you seen me lately 
Ready for tomorrow, with a light in my eyes 

I want to feel this 
Like you do my beggar princess 
And yes, it’s just a moment 
Of truth with you and me in it 

So why should we die? 
So why should we die? 
We’re special, you and I

Sea Of Pleasantries 

I’m floating on a sea of hubris 
And the servile few keep growing 
Into a school of mini-mes 
I’m living like I always wanted 
My words are people’s gospel 
And it affects my mind, my friend 

I can not keep things to myself 

Dearie me 
I’m floating on a sea of pleasantries 
’Cause no-one tells me no 
And I don’t say please 
Or any of those other niceties 
’Cause that shit’s just weak 

The other day I felt like sharing 
So I handed my wisdom down 
And it caused a pretty scene 
Some shout at me, but I’m not worried 
I’m protected by laws I loathe 
And therefor disregard 

I find myself the perfect man 

Dearie me 
I’m floating on a sea of pleasantries 
’Cause no-one tells me no 
And I don’t say please 
Or any of those other niceties 
’Cause that shit’s just weak 
That shit is just weak 

There were shots from some poor dummy 
I never said to take my meaning by the word 
Dear listener, don’t worry about me 
I’m up here safe and sound 
In my precious ivory tower 

From a great big height 
I see your plight 
Now fight

Trail Of Lies 

Hello 
From a mind hell-bent and lost 
A ripple of pretty soothing words 
Always at someone else’s cost 

Yeah, I’ll do this right 
Think I’ll tear myself apart 
Right down to my treacherous heart 
See if it’s something you still want a part of 

Hello, I’m here 
And I’m sick and tired 
Leaving a trail of lies 
Yeah, my heart it cries 
And my tear-stained face 
Can’t wash away those lies 

Hush now heart 
You can never take it back 
Once it’s out there in the cracks 
It’ll fester and maybe break your back 

Hello, I’m here 
And I’m sick and tired 
Leaving a trail of lies 
Yeah, my heart it cries 
And my tear-stained face 
Can’t wash away those lies 

Have I a soul 
You can bring yourself to 
Love as a whole 
With all my queer exceptions 
I’m not the rule 
So will you just sit down and breathe 
With me 

Hello, I’m here tonight 
And I’m sick and tired 
Leaving a trail of lies 
Yeah, my heart it cries 
And if I don’t come clean 
No, this can’t be my life 

This can’t be my life

Sick Song 

You pull me out this godforsaken jungle 
Of imposing on all my misery 
I’m leaving behind a life faded to grey tone 
Flushing red with a lovesong 

You’re holding up my light again 
A light I thought I’d lost 
How easily it burns again 
Without drugs, creed or cost 
You have passed across that line 
A line I thought stood firm 
You will prove me wrong again 
My lines don’t pose a halt for you 

I’m sick on the floor 
I hate all that I’m writing 
The birds outside seem to be mocking me 
There’s too much white noise 
Too much words that only mean half-things 
But here I stand with a lovesong 

You’re holding up my light again 
A light I thought I’d lost 
How easily it burns again 
Without drugs, creed or cost 
You have passed across that line 
A line I thought stood firm 
You will prove me wrong again 
My lines don’t pose a halt for you 
For you 
For you 
For you

Stuck With A Rhyme

Stuck With A Rhyme

Stuck With A Rhyme 

Stuck, stuck, stuck, stuck with a rhyme 
Want to but I can not seem to combine it 
With anything of might 

I want to stick, stick, stick, stick to a plan 
But to conjure up a working one takes a better man 
Than most self-help software tells me I am 

Shush, shush, shush, shush it to death 
Keep ideas from leaving my head 
Collect all my thoughts and put them back to bed 

But then I turn to face a world 

It crossed my mind tonight 
It’s pencil to paper time 
All of this, all of this leaves 
If I get to, I get to be 

Take, take, take all that you can 
I may not be around to blow up this scam 
I wish I had clarity but I’m damned 

Stuck, stuck, stuck, stuck with it all 
Want to but I can not seem to recall what I want 
Or what I’m here for 

And so I turn to face the world 

It crossed my mind tonight 
It’s pencil to paper time 
All of this, all of this leaves 
If I get to, I get to be 

Stuck, stuck, stuck, stuck with a rhyme 
Want to but I can not seem to combine 
Stuck, stuck, stuck, stuck with a rhyme 
Want to but I can not seem to combine it ahead 

You crossed my mind tonight 
Now it’s pencil to paper time 
All of this, all of this leaves 
If I get to, I get to be 
Someone 
Someone 
Someone

Marina 

I smell pinewood and salmon 
I trot on salt of the Earth 
A thick black smoke is stinging my eyes 
And it’s decidedly silent 
Mmm, my unfurnished home 

I shake hands with every last one 
Be it grandma or baby 
They’ll join hands when I’ve gone 
It makes no difference to me 

Shards of glass 
Now your cup lay broken 

When we meet you may find a sound 
Slowly creeping out of your mouth 
Saying please please let me do this alone 
But I was always there through it all 
Through the storm 
Marina 
Marina 
Marina 
Marina 

I did not come to dwell in this place 
Just to pick up a package 
I did not come to fall from grace 
No, I’m long lost and past it 
Marina 
Marina 
Now your cup lay broken 
Marina 
Marina 
Now your cup lay broken
