Track Name: HUNTER part 1
I hunt through the night like a rabid, wild wolf; I hunt. (x7)
Track Name: HUNTER part 2
the peroxide stopped working long ago but
who will follow, who will follow?
Follow me down into the river?
Wash your fingers of the mud
From the tree that runs into the ground
How many roots will you tear out?

Wash your fingers of the mud.

I hunt in the woods looking for... (x4)
Track Name: SIREN
Sailing man
Come to me.
The current calls to hold you.
Feel the ocean's cold steal your breath,
forget my fingers around your neck.

Our lips connect and down you go...

When he thirsts I sing,
no mortal immune.
When he starves I feed,
sailor, king, or fool.

See your sin in my eyes,
know the truth in your soul:
I'm your black, oil heart
swallowing you whole.
Track Name: WITCH
I want to feel your dark skin on me.
Pour wax on my feet.
Bare my breast, grow fangs from teeth,
and grow leather wing.

Come drag your werewolf nails across my skin.
Awaken them from within.
Strangers, sisters, be my kin
and do the deeds the king intends

Take me mighty king,
take me mighty king take me.

See the moon?
She sees you.
Count the craters to know your maker.
