Track Name: The Rule of Reflection
Magic mirror on the wall please tell me
Who’s the fairest ruler of them all
Magic mirror on the wall confess
You my queen are fairest of them all

You move my lips and tell me to step through
You pull my strings and tell me

Bitten apple lipstick red reflection
The next election lurking in the dark
Perfect teeth carved in the air indeed
You my queen are fairest of them all

Overgrown with climbing putrid weed
Your concrete house is drowning in the stagnant pond
You heave
While clockwork robins squeak beyond the glass
And yes, indeed, you’re fairest of them all
Track Name: Fade Out to Black
A surgeon turned into a mask
What used to be the photogs’ pet
Dilated pupils that recall
The catwalk’s end, a blur of light

What’s beyond the blinding glare?
The spotlights hide the bitter end
My close-up fades out of the front page

Eternal youth rises
Out of the sterile blade in an expert hand
And goes down the drain

A splinter from a shattered mask
Ploughed crimson lines on shuddering wrists
A front page beyond the looking glass
Lurking behind the glaring lights

Eternal youth rises
Out of the glistening slash of a razor blade
And goes down the drain

What’s beyond the blinding light?
What’s beyond the flashlight
Track Name: Here Comes the Rain
Here comes the rain and washes all my thoughts away
My musings turn to water down the windscreen back to earth
The scorching sun is gasping smothered in a shroud of clouds
Here comes the rain and washes all my thoughts away

Here comes the rain and washes all my thoughts away
My musings turn to water down the windscreen back to earth
The pale blue moon is gasping smothered in a shroud of clouds
Here comes the rain and washes all my thoughts away

I drive along the road into the night
The wiper rocks the listless autumn rain
The raindrops tap and tap into my head

A wake of shattered mirrors as the wheels go round
The night growing again behind the lights
The night is back on the looking glass

The raindrops tap and tap into my head
The wiper rocks the listless autumn rain
I drive along the road into the night
Track Name: The Earthlings
Our fate was sealed when we welcomed the killers
We mirrored the faces of those left behind in their eye

Our fate was sealed when we welcomed extinction
Our mask of death was the craving they brought in their eye

Then we faded away
Our mask of death was the craving they brought

They stare into the pond and then they see us
The Martians in the water look familiar
The ruins in the hills are full of faces
They stare out of the pond and then they see you

Our fate was sealed when we welcomed the poison
That soaked our souls when we mirrored the gleam in their eye

Our fate was sealed when we welcomed extinction
Our mask of death was the craving they brought in their eye

Our mask of death was the yearning they brought
