Track Name: Once Upon A Time
Once upon a time the entire world was made of paper
The origami birds folded their wings under bleached-out clouds
As the paper boy brought out the news to every house of cards
One day, the girl with shredded eyes spotted him drawing and scribbling
Pictures of another world
So she took him by the hand
And she brought him to a crowd of cardboard cut-outs
They tore down the painted sky
And beneath the pinned up moon,
The girl crumpled up her paper heart
And together, they learned to play with fire
Track Name: Paper Heart
A picture of a broken heart
In a land of origami
Delivered by the paper boy
To every house of cards
He took out a pen
And painted with a grin
Drawing on every wall
That kept us boxed in
So I took him by the hand and
We ripped the world apart

uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh...
Did I come off like I’m too dark?
uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh...
When I tore out my paper heart?

I took him to the middle of
A crowd of cardboard cut outs
I crumpled up my paper heart
And let him strike a match
‘Cause we were the perfect match
Two pyromaniacs
Underneath the painted sky
Watching smoke rise
Yeah we learned to play with fire
It all burned down so fast

uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh... Did I come off like I’m too dark?
uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh... When I tore out my paper heart?

Black black black black, charcoal black
We struck the match that made the spark
Black black black black, charcoal black
Then watched the whole world burning over

I just sat and watched it all
Burn down to ashes
I just sat and watched it all
go dark
I just sat and watch it all
Burn down to nothing
I just sat and watched my whole world come apart

Did I come off like I’m too dark
When I tore out my paper heart?
Track Name: Sing Dear Queen
Sing dear queen, the mic is on
All the violins are tuned to your song
Lights are shining on the band
The conductor’s stick is tapping the stand

Make us feel comfy and warm
Make us feel we’re ready to learn
From your words
To your love song

With such grace she takes the stage
Oh her lipstick is perfectly placed
In pure silence her audience waits
But she’s frozen, frozen in place

Now the crowd stares at your mouth
Let your pretty pout say what love is about
Sing dear queen, remove our fears
Let your kind, wise words bring hope to our ears

Come on now, we’re waiting, come on now, open up your mouth

Wait my dear...Something is wrong
The notes are here but the lyrics are gone
There’s no words
To your love song
No words, no words, no love
Track Name: Floating Nora
i floated
as the sky was falling
i floated under rocks
i floated as the sky fell
under the water and over the sun
then sank

i drifted
away
i drifted over blood
i drifted as the vein broke
under the candy and over the highs
i drank

oh reckless, reckless ship
gone in the water
no one can touch this here
boat in a bottle
oh reckless, reckless ship
caught in a bottle
no one can touch this here

soaked up girl
messed up world
you'll sink deeper than her heart
soaped up world
held my girl you can't ever
have her heart

soaped up girl
mucked up world
you'll sink deeper than her heart
all my world
held my girl
you can't ever
have her heart

i, i drifted away
Track Name: Inferno
As I fight with my demons
I wrestle them to the ground
Their hot bodies take over me
We all fall right through the floor

ahhhhh...
Deep into the core
I fight their fight the whole way down
They get stronger more and more

Way below the Earth.

As the flames get higher
I can’t find my way out
And my demons they laugh at me
They all force me to dance their little dance

ahhhh...
Deep into the core
I dance their waltz the whole night in their arms
They spin faster more and more

Way below the Earth

Inferno
They got... They got ... They got me
They got me
Inferno
They got... They got... They got me
Track Name: Broken Arrow - Act I
Deep in the thickest woods
I ran as free as I could
Lost under high tree tops
I realized I had been caught
Diagonally
It shot right at me at a blinding speed
It came and hit me
A broken arrow split and shattered my dream
Track Name: Broken Arrow - Act II
Lost and confused I awoke
Soon realized the trees had all broke
All the sick branches reached to you
Even though they were severed in two

Diagonally
It shot right at me at a blinding speed
It came and hit me
A broken arrow split and shattered my dream

In memory of a tree
In memory of when we were happy
In memory of a tree
In memory before we were empty

Diagonally
the memory of
the memories
the memory of
the memories
It came and hit me

the memory of
the memories
the memory of
the memories
It broke it broke it broke
broke me broke me
Track Name: Broken Arrow - Act III
Broken little girl
You ran free in the forest

Broken little girl
The Machines they cut it down
They cut it down
They cut it all down
Now
No More Home

Broken little girl
Your dream is now theirs

They cut it down
They cut it all down
Now
No More Home
Track Name: Turning Turning
Turning turning over
inside
Burning burning colder
outside

The madmen they came and they took all our habits
Like vampires they came and they took over our bodies
The botox we brought to all the real hot parties
All froze us to nothing and cracked us like glass

And we never go and play out in the sun
Because we’re not allowed to have fun no
We never go and smile at anyone
Because we’re not allowed to have fun

Turning turning over
inside
Burning burning colder
outside

Like magnets we rushed to pick up all the pieces
Then melted them slowly and made plastic soup
Then we drank it even though it scorched all our throats
And it scratched out our thoughts but it made us look good

And we never go and play out in the sun
Because we’re not allowed to have fun no
We never go and smile at anyone
Because we’re not allowed to have fun

Turning turning over
inside
Burning burning colder
outside
Track Name: Photograph
further than a photo
i can’t focus on the light

cause i, i
look through broken glass eyes
with no window
in sight

when we put you away down down
part of me went right there with you
when we put you away down down
part of me was already there

i, i have wings now
but i can’t dig my way out
cause i, i need a pair of hands
just to shovel out the ground

when we put you away down down
part of me went right there with you
when we put you away down down
part of me was already there

put the nylon stocking on, get my face done up
put the powder in the fun, till the magic’s gone
put the poison on my tongue, till my throat’s numb
put the phone down

i, i have wings now
but i can’t dig my way out
Track Name: Merry Go Round
Merry Go Round
Kick off the ground
No more waiting around
The horses are ready
Ride them right out of town

Saddled up tight
They are leaving tonight
Go on and catch one
Soon you’ll be out of sight

Don’t look back
You might get dizzy
Stay on track
Don’t wanna freeze up like a heart attack
So keep on moving
Don’t look back
Head right out of town....

Uh oh no
They are stuck on poles

It’s like musical chairs
Cause we’re going nowhere
The horses are stuck on poles
They are caught in mid air

It’s a merry go round
Running into the ground
The horses are plastic
And they’re laughing like clowns

Still

Don’t look back
You might get dizzy
Stay on track
Don’t wanna freeze up like a heart attack
So keep on moving
Don’t look back

Around and around.......
Track Name: Bad Dreams
“Listen... I know it seems like you’re going in circles but I promise
There’s a way out, there’s a way out there’s a way out...
Turn left down the hall... go to room 273...”

Now, now
Bad dreams won’t happen
Now, now
I won’t dream no more

Thought I fell into another
Dream once more
Now, i know
I’ve seen this all before

“No, no, no, I meant left I meant left I meant left....
Take the stairs, don’t take the elevator... It’s room 996 you’ll find it...”

My eyes are lit like candles
Can’t get a grip or handle
Walk down a clouded hall
Museum with no walls
A door inside a door
Move to another floor
I try to take the stairs
And spiral to nowhere
A place where dreams are sleeping
Monster machines are breathing
A war inside a ward
Ten eyes behind a door
And in the shadow’s mouth
I find a new way out
Another clouded hall
Museum with no walls

“That’s right...no...turn left... right down the hall...”

Now, now, bad dreams won’t happen
Now, now, I won’t dream
No more
Track Name: Birdy
Birdy pecking at my soul
Chirping, yelling at the walls
Pretty perched inside my heart
Wings held down by big strong arms
My pet is piercing at my skin
Drawing bad blood with a grin
Pretty perched inside my heart
Me and birdy never part

no, it won’t stop pecking
no, it won’t stop wrecking

fly high, so high wave bye-bye
take flight take it take my flight

fly high, get high wave bye-bye
take take take it all

Birdy caged inside my brain
Close my eyes he starts to sing
Melodies of fallen chains
Little creature gone insane
Ruffled feathers in my mouth
Stifled when I try to shout
Pretty perched inside my heart
Me and birdy never part

Fragile bones have broken me
Pretty bird won’t let me be
Cage is open, here’s the key
But he just won’t leave

Bye bye birdy, wave bye bye
Take my take flight take my flight
Fragile bones have broken me
But he just won’t leave
