the hollow
run, desire, run a sexual being
run him like a blade
to and through the hollow conscience
one motive: cater to the hollow

screaming feed me here
fill me up again
temporarily pacify this hunger that's so cruel

libido throw
dominoes of indiscretions down
falling all around in cycles, in circles
constantly consuming, conquering, devour.

'cause its time to bring the fire down
throttle all this indiscretion
long enough to edify
and permanently fill this hollow

screaming feed me here
fill me up again
temporarily pacifying
feed me here
fill me up again
temporarily pacifying

magdalena

overcome by your
moving temple
overcome by this
holiest of altars
so pure
so rare
to witness such a lovely goddess

i lost my self control
beyond compelled to throw this dollar down
before your
holiest of altars

i'll sell
my soul
my self esteem
a dollar at a time

for one chance
one kiss
one taste of you my magdalena

i've beared witness
to this place, this lair, so long forgotten
so pure, so rare, to witness such a lovely goddess

and i'd sell
my soul
my self-esteem a dollar at a time

for one chance
one kiss
one taste of you my black madonna

i'll sell
my soul
my self-esteem a dollar at a time

for one taste
one taste
one taste of you my magdalena

rose

don't
disturb
the beast
the tempermental goat
the snail
while he's feeding on the rose
stay rose, and compromise what i will, i am

been around
the wind silently blown about
again i'm treading so
soft and lightly
compromising my will i am

i am
my will
so no longer
will i
lay down
play dead
play hard to-
in the headlights, locked down and terrified
your deer in the headlights shined down and horrified

when push comes to pull comes to shove comes to step around
this self destructive dance that never would've managed
i rose, i roared aloud, hear my will, i am

i am
my will
so no longer
will i
lay down
play dead
play this
kneel-down gunshy martyr, pitiful
i rose, i roared, my will i am

judith

you're such an inspiration for the ways that i will never ever choose to be
oh so many ways for me to show you how your savior has abandoned you

fuck your god!
your lord, your christ
he did this
took all you had and
left you this way
still you prayed never straying
never taste of the fruit
you never thought to question why

its not like you killed someone
its not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed

he did it all for you
he did it all for you

oh so many ways for me to show you how your dogma has abandoned you
pray! to your christ, to your god
never taste of the fruit
never stray, never brake, never
choke on the lie
even though he's the one who did this to you
you never thought to question why

its not like you killed someone
its not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
talk to jesus christ as if he knows the reasons why; he did it all for you

he did it all for you
he did it all for you
