Track Name: Yesterday's Tears
[chords] G Am Em G A Em
C Em Am
bridging: B

[chorus:]
yesterday's tears, fall from above
making it clear what we are thinking of
yesterday's tears, fall from above
filling the ground below with life & love

the emperor's mask is beginning to fill
with lachryme wept over his overkill
he lies his weight down, and begins to grow still
taking its toll on beloved yggdrasil

[bridge] C Em Am

[chorus]
the empress sits back, her tongue in her teeth
looking for something to nurture beneath
her unwav'ring will, her sword in its sheathe
the collar she wears is much more of a wreath,

[chorus]

[bridge] C Em Am C Em Am/B

when shadows fall, please keep in mind
there is no permanent death i can find
when shadows draw, try to be kind
but protect your cord of light or you'll unwind

[chorus]
the monarchy's gone, they've come to an end,
it is more just than we'd think to defend
let's hope that hierophant and junon pretend
that we can still coexist and be as friends,

[bridge] C Em Am C Em Am/B

[chorusx2]
Track Name: Deific Hubris
[basic chords] C# D#m B C#

The weeks go by,
and yet I find myself unstuck
crumpled up convincerd im an animal, in a most sinful
display of an out-of-luck

[chorus, varies each time]

deific power,
that only works when you're not myself,
got to put childish thoughts, and inclinations,
locked up on the shelf

and forget what we can't
the only way to go's above
my own horns & thoughts, inclinations
must be firmly rooted in love,

a kelly green heart,
shielded flesh leads to a tender soul,
below the fallen tower, there sprouts a flower,
a meaningful kiss unfurls it like a scroll,

[bridge] C# D# Bm C#

Levender Fire,
that only shows for a damaged soul,
no matter what helps you live, you cannot give
up any inclinations that make you whole,

[pause]

Please forget me
only mauve spirals lead down this path
a gentle skiff coming to harm in a sea of
miscommunications, hypocrisy, doubt, and wrath

[long bridge + vocal] C# D# D#m B C#

Deific Power,
that only works when I'm not yourself,
got to put childish thoughts, and inclinations,
locked up on the shelf

and forget what we can't
our selves who climb to the highest highs,
only to find, it's true; as above so below,
and we're lying down unmoving in a cloud of flies,

[long bridge + vocal] C# D# D#m B C#

but deific wisdom,
which only shows when we are ourselves,
a contraindicational circumstance
as the only way to live is to be yourself,


and deific wisdom,
which graces your mind if you let it be,
it'll show us what, we're looking for,
I just hope it's the locked up cupboard's key

[ending] C# D# D#m C#
Track Name: Doorway
[chords] Bm D G^ C/Em
[bridge] Em B7 G D
[breakdown] Em B7 G D Am C Em Bm

and I can wait for the red keeper's door to
open and swallow me whole,
I'm ready for my reborn soul,
my final fate couldn't come too late
and I'm already past my shelflife date

and i can't wait for that big old crater to
crack open and spread out in full,
all ready to pay my toll,
i'll extirpate any sense of weight
and finally shed this extra wool

[breakdown... melody of some kind...]

and I can't wait for the yawning void to
open and consume a mouthful
of my etheric self's weeping soul,
i will not sate the asking rate,
and im already stealing from tomorrow's plate

[build up melody]

and I won't elate for the centipede king's door to
open and show me some scrolls
it's why they gave my right arm holes,
my final fate can't come too late,
please don't follow suit and ask your expiry daaaaaate

[ending] Bm D G, C/Em, Bm D Em, Bm
Track Name: Asphyxiation Blues (cw: choking) [demo]
(cough)
