'This is the story of the Red Queen, maybe it was all just an opium dream, I can't pretend it didn't happen; if you think it'll help, can't say yet how we got there but I'll tell you where I went.'

'In the black hole of Calcutta, well I met a Haggard Rider ~ he said, I am the storyteller, one of those rider fellahs ~ kill the baddie, get the girl'

It's my party, I'll die if I want to, my funeral, nobody asked you, it's my party I'll die if I want to - DIE DIE DIE I WANT TO! Today is a gift, that's why it's "present" Well life has shit taste, I'm not saying thank you, or sharing my cake, I'll burst the balloons at this wake COS It's my party, I'll die if I want to, my funeral, nobody asked you, it's my party I'll die if I want to - DIE DIE DIE I WANT TO! If life was to live for, it wouldn't invite Kids I don't like, It's not what I wanted, no more playing nice, GIVE ME TOYS OR I WILL BITE COS It's my party, I'll die if I want to, my funeral, nobody asked you, it's my party I'll die if I want to - DIE DIE DIE I WANT TO! We're all gathered here today, smile for the camera, what's not to celebrate, sing happy deathday, we're gathered anyway, dressed in our finest, what's not to celebrate? We're one brat minus. We're. Here. HOORAY. Play Pass the Coffin, What's not to celebrate? I'm getting my own way - UH-OH! It's my party, I'll die if I want to, my funeral, nobody asked you, it's my party I'll die if I want to - DIE DIE DIE I WANT TO!

She's alive! She's vile! Miss Frankenstein, Heartless scientist crossed the line, Monstrous love lab, doomed humanity, The B- Movie bitch that shouldn't be, Bolts and scars- no human trace, Plan 666 she's escaped. She's alive, she's vile, Miss frankenstein, Alive and vile Miss Frankenstein, Miss Frankenstein, Miss Frankenstein.. This burning city now Her slave, A hungry horror, night screams craved, In Her veins- what didn't kill, Cross Her glory and guts will spill, Chains of love, left on the slab, Guest of honour at the monster mash! Build a monster- tear it down . . . . Grab your pitch forks gather 'round, Chase the beast from outta town, Grab your pitchforks, burn Her down, But you can't keep a vile bitch down!

'I have a singular secret recourse, a pint of gin in my portmanteau, if you and your parents and good comrades desire a fracas meet me in the music hall ~'

'It's fifteen leagues to providence, time he took a long draft of turpentine, when stepping off a bridge he went blind, oh lord ~'

Shadow Man 04:46
'I've been here before; just close the door; ~ it's a nervous disease, a psychological freeze ~ now it's come this far, contradictions tear you apart.'
10.
'In the gallery of stars you shine so bright ~ between the darkness and the light.'
11.
'She was on her knees, begging you please, leave the boy alone, just leave the boy alone ~'
12.
'Evil rains a falling, from clouds of bible black, and burning bolts of lightning split and crack ~'

Steam 03:44
'The future, I don't know what it's worth, it's organic or mechanical or magical world we're lost in, don't want to go back to when the hills were dark green and the skies were black.'

English Soul 03:27
There is an English soul, you can feel it in the whipping wind, the very same that blew the boats to the bays to make this cauldron what it is. You can feel it in the iron gates between the bars and the factory hands. We are the distant sons of the warrior clans who scarred and named the land. CHORUS: There is an English soul. There is an English soul, you can see it in your misted breath; when it's minus two on the terraces you are in a battle of life and death. You can feel it on the quiet streets after your team's gang clash, you step over the blood of an Englishman 'cause there ain't no soul in that. There is an English soul, you can read it in the lines of peace between the men and women of word and song and when the melody's unique. And you feel it in the swell of the school yard where she cannot understand why her father the fusilier was flown into the sands of a foreign land. From the beaches, over the grains, they lit the beacons when the war boats came. From flint to firearm why don't you know? We are the blood collective, we are the English soul.

Servants 05:41
'Forget the fatal things you've seen, a memory of the darkest dream ~ servants of the mad desire ~ don't hold a mirror to that light, the shadows rank with things unquiet ~'
16.
'Lurking in the shadows, rivers start to freeze, he's the curse of eternity, root of all disease ~'
17.
'There's kids with knives, roaming the street, and you could get killed by anyone you meet, kids on corners, for a fight ~'
18.
'~ looking splendid, goggles on their head ~ meet old friends, so many Victorian trends, creations on the stalls in mighty halls ~'

I am man as he would be I’ve seen the darkness in your soul Don’t turn away, embrace you ego Tonight we dine in hell He is man as he could be He fights to rule his soul But the desires of flesh are stronger And he releases control Champagne Ivy – look at me This is the life you were meant to lead But my affections are not free Champagne Ivy look at me I am man as he would be I’ve seen the darkness in us all So look inside, you call me brother We know each other well Champagne Ivy – look at me This is the life you were meant to lead But my affections are not free Champagne Ivy look at me

Angel MMXVI 02:45
'I've seen the darkness in your soul, don't turn away, embrace your ego; Such a long time now, I've had my eye on you, took time to figure out where you live and what you do, it's too late to turn back now, you can feel my hot breath, will you be ready when I call, I'm the Angel of Darkness.'
