One chapter made of stone a frozen page is hard to hone it turns as I write it Ten fingers blue and cold wrap around something hard to hold it burns and I like it So what's the score you've almost stopped caring anymore so... When the fever returns stray from the marsh there's so much to learn Once I prayed for warmth and now I let it rage Let it burn through the day When that fever returns So now you're on your own broke free from a comfort zone was it really that good or were you just hiding Seeing things you ain't seen before walk right through an open door you get so excited Finger on the pulse you're still alive so keep on driving When the fever returns stray from the marsh there's so much to learn Once I prayed for warmth and now I let it rage Let it burn through the day When that fever returns It burns and I like it (x 2) Some days I crave the heat It's not all 'bout mercury rising When the fever returns stray from the marsh there's so much to learn Once I prayed for warmth and now I let it rage Let it burn through the day (x2)

Heaven 02:45
You drew me in Like a moth to a flame Took my hand led the way Said we're livin in the Southeast, Baby You'll learn to love You'll learn that love is salty Heaven knows in the winter we pray Pray for snow Come and wash our dirty sins away And you'll learn to love Those dirty sins when all we get is freezing rain And now I'm here Looks like I'll stay Wisteria wrapped round my veins Heaven is a wild place (x 4) You'll learn to love You'll learn that love is salty Invade my heart Make me stay Wisteria wrapped round my veins And as wild as it sounds I can honestly say I found Heaven in the Southeast, Baby Heaven is a wild place (x4)

On the run again moving like a shadow On the run again I've found running is my friend Follow to no end Running gets me where I want to go Your words put me on trial put me on trial asking too many questions Your words put me on trial I can't get away from you nearly fast enough on the run again Your words put me on trial put me on trial asking too many questions Your words put me on trial I can't get away from you nearly fast enough But this time it's hard I was awfully charmed and I nearly caved and gave you my heart but it seems you can't help but analyze my character So look in the mirror I'm on the run again Your words put me on trial put me on trial asking too many questions Your words put me on trial I can't get away from you nearly fast enough But I might return If I've got time to burn and I wanna see if you have learned But if you still can't help but analyze my character Look in the mirror I'll be on the run again

Firestar 03:40
It's 2am and I'm feeling bold Staying warm in a faux mink stole In New York we walk the streets Stand over the vents and feel the city heart beating Hat pulled down mink stole pulled tight I'm not tired at all I wanna stay up all night Stay with me The Firestar never sleeps I wanna watch the sun rise Don't let me fall Don't let me fall asleep tonight It's 4am and I'm feeling old I wanna rest my head on this faux mink stole In New York there's a place to lean I'm gonna lean right here you get the coffee and cream and one sugar When I get my second wind I'm gonna thank you for sticking with me my friend You're like a dream The Firestar never sleeps I wanna watch the sun rise Don't let me fall Don't let me fall asleep tonight It's 6am or so I'm told I'm gonna rest my eyes just for a second... The Firestar never sleeps She's a constant sunrise If you should fall Let yourself fall asleep Like a baby beneath the sunrise

Snow on the mountain snow on my heart cold been creepin in since we're apart I float over landscapes I see you living life You're living your best life and it cuts me like a knife I know I should empower Should try to get along but I head for the darkness Like some southern gothic song I'm not a witch who's wicked and you're surely no Snow White but I long to see your blood spill On the mountain this very night Perhaps you start to wonder What fills me with such strife or anger or excitement To take another's life Like the little girl from Knoxville you've done nothing wrong but you're happy and I'm hopeless so I'll kill you in a song I'll kick you cross the mountain Your teeth come flying out I'll kick you til you're senseless Gone beyond a doubt your blood on the blanket is a cherry on my dream Oh I'm feeling so much better just imagine this bloody scene

I was hunted beneath the Strawberry Moon All told, my sole purpose was finding a place Finding a place where we could stay wild Bloodthirsty and weak with the world at our feet shouldn't we make a run for it run for it Under the strawberry moon We played our games But now you've got a taste so what's real what's fake I can't tell I can't tell I can't read your eyes anymore Shouldn't I make a run for it run for it Under the strawberry moon We played our games Under the strawberry moon You got a taste Under the strawberry moon We play our games Under the strawberry moon

I wander the streets at night Looking for trouble to get into The wallpapered hallways with flickering lights doors that open and promise delights What do I know of that What do I know of delights Your wingspan is massive Your moonlight attractive I'm falling for intrigue and danger The moon The moon will hold ya captive If you let it The man in the moon's like a vampire Let him glamour you All Night (x4) I ponder the beat of a thousand year heart Does it beat for me. and did it ever stop Your lip stain it beckons and pulls like a kite Moon starts to spin like a disco light *Champagne Halston Smoke and Sequins* Dance with a nuance of intrigue and danger The moon The moon will hold ya captive if you let it The man in the moon's like a vampire Let him glamour you All night (x4) *Champagne Halston Smoke and Sequins* (x3) I wander the streets at night Looking for trouble to get into I found you...I found you The moon The moon will hold ya captive if you let it The man in the moon's like a vampire Let him glamour you All night (x4)

Baby Witch 07:35
Hello stranger I've known you for a long long time Hello danger always waiting there in the back of my mind So I light the fire and Tonight we'll forget it all cause She's just a baby witch she's just a baby Hello blood I've known you for a long long time Hello eyes I've known you for a long long time Hello arms I've known you for a long long time Hello legs I've known you for a long long time Goodbye fear Hiding out in my mind I'm tired of you We are through So I light the fire and Tonight we'll forget it all cause She's just a baby witch she's just a baby Goodbye fear You can try But you won't find me anymore rising like smoke to the sky and disappear into thin air
