Track Name: I Love You To Death
Purple, blue, red to black
These are the colors that you give back
After a while it'll turn to green
A little reminder of what you mean

Across the field I see your light
Sounds of wailing pierce the night
Flaming embers light the sky
Our love is burning and this is why

I love you, I love you to death
Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath
Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

*break*

Beautiful package of sharpened knives
A wooden box to hold your lies
Rusted coils, a glass syringe
The anniversary of our revenge

I love you, I love you to death
Think of me darling when you draw your last breath
No need to worry, no need to confess
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

*break*

Side by side upon the hill
Our brambled vines are growing still
Beneath the moor, the growing heather
The sun sets in the west forever

I love you, I love you to death
Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath
Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

I love you, I love you, I love you to death

Track Name: Morella
MORELLA
Andrea Wittgens, Corinne Lee, Fred Young
Oct 25, 2010

Once was a lady Morella
Skin like a porcelain doll
Songs from her lips drive a man to the tip top
Teeter on the edge of her magic breath

He marries the songbird Morella
A union of syrup gone sour
She bends him in spells with tonic she sells
As romances but these trances are just murderous advances

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

You’re losing your luster, Morella
Laughing from your deathbed you say
“You hate me in life but you’ll love me in death”
What a curious crumb from a last breath

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

Left me a daughter peculiar
Sings from the tongue of her mother
A child with no name til the baptism day
To the ear of the priest returns the deceased

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me
You call me
Call me
You call me
Call me
Track Name: Alley Cat
ALLEY CAT
Geri X, Andrea Wittgens
Oct 26, 2010

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

Here’s my sister, your wedding gift
Untouched, pure, asleep
And when you tire I’ll bring you the girl next door

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

Helter Skelter, babe, we’re family
Got my gun, my knife my rope
Stabbed her 16 times and wrote your name in red on the wall

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to
