Minotaur 04:27
Dedicated to: Nobody Smile through your teeth Mask of sincerity Lie through your eyes Contradict your words through deeds Living in a maze Wallowing in your own disease Trapped in your own cage Spinning a web to catch me Blundering beast Shredding faith from my bones Blinded by light Destroy me with your fear Snake in the grass Raving in the shadows Poison breather, Rappaccini Fueled by your failure Slander, shame, and sacrilege Lie and die in your labyrinth

Aging clowns: riding your broken merry-go-round Lonely fools: living by an ancient set of rules Angry men: never going to own our souls again We're not laughing anymore The time has come to march you out the door We're taking over this dance floor We're tired of dying for your war We have minds of our own We're not yours We're not laughing any more Stubborn clowns: weary the head that bears the crown Cringing men: taking liberty without consent Privileged fools: forsake your coward's state and smash your rules

Do I Dare? 03:45
Did you expect me to sit on a shelf? A Christmas gift, do not open 'til the 25th Wrapped in bow and chain, a brand new toy Waiting to be broken in And once revealed, a wind up doll, spinning on and on and on... Watch out! I'm the girl your mother warned you about Watch out! I'm the girl your preacher wants to cast out Watch out! Here I am you'd better run! Is my body my only ticket to success Can't you see past my skin to the mind within Am I beautiful or am I brilliant Would it shake your world if you saw me as both What are you afraid of? Why do you see me as a threat? You shame me for my autonomy You blame me for his lack of control You hush me for speaking my mind You blush for me breaking the mold Do you fear a loss of power because of how you treat the meek? In my weakness you are strong In my virtue you have no vice In my darkness you are light Father, father, forgive me. I have sinned.

Celestium 07:32
The last light has gone out. You're on your way. Journey through the night to a brighter day. You are all alone. Sailing through the sky. Leave your life behind. You were berthed to die. Sleep. Dream. Brave one, drift on. The fates have smiled on you. There's nothing left to fear. The thrill of victory can be yours, my dear.
