vleryk Beautiful, haunting, catchy, I can listen to this album for hours at a time. The vibes are steampunk, but so much more. Favorite track: Clockwork Heart.

Hand Of Fate 03:01
Seasons change And so have I And so have you I wonder why The hand of fate Deigns to act Upon the meek A proven fact That it takes more courage to love Like that Yeah it takes more courage to love Like that Spin the wheel Twist the dial Cozy up For a little while The crying game Is fun to watch While the hand of fate Cuts a swath Through the memories and the lies And the color coded smiles That keep us guessing day after day What a blissful, stunning dream That cuts right through the gleam Within your eyes Where I am safe But it takes more courage to love Like that Yeah it takes more courage to love Like that And it takes more courage to love When the hand of fate above Moves the pieces before you begin Painted pictures Cryptic signs Form the threads Of a life True conviction Stated plain Guides the sightless Through the pain But it takes more courage to love Like that Yeah it takes more courage to love Like that And it takes more courage to love When the hand of fate above Moves the pieces before you begin And it takes more courage to love When the hand of fate above Moves the pieces before you begin

I pick up the phone for to call But I seem to have misplaced your number Lost where the memories crawl under To die My chariot races to save me But I seem to have drawn some ire - rony Several events have conspired to be Almost comical So I leave you a message With calling back digits And my fingers, they fidget As I wait more and more Feeling a bit out of phase And the silence is most distressing Especially to the one who's undressing In my mind I've seen it all And imagined much more There's no repentance For a lifetime sentence Can I just close my eyes? Can I just fall asleep? Can I just close my eyes Without pretending That you're me Phonograph recordings erased From the ministry of the interior Saying they were an inferior record of Past tense events Heroes are born out of fire Through considerable testing in laboratories Where fortune and failure are allegory For the facts of life I should be lucky I should be grateful I should be silent I should be you Can I just close my eyes? Can I just fall asleep? Can I just close my eyes Without pretending That you're me I hear what you're saying but open your eyes Your dashing young man wears a feeble disguise He knows not his heart and he knows not his mind And he trusts neither one for they both feed him lies Can I just close my eyes? Can I just fall asleep? Can I just close my eyes Without pretending That you’re me Can I just close my eyes Without pretending Without pretending Whoa, pretending I don’t wanna pretend anymore That you’re me That you’re me

Mannequin 03:20
I'm handled by too many hands And I'm in love with all of them I think I said it's only you And if I did that isn't true I may be thinking like a man But I'll love you like a mannequin When we're lying down in bed I'll wish I were alone instead I'll snuggle in and close my eyes And in my sleep I'll realize When I'm dreaming about him I'll love you like a mannequin I know you want to hold my hand I'll touch you just like porcelain Perfect for your picture frame Frozen in a window pane When you get under my skin I'll love you like a mannequin You're coming in and wanting more I'm thinking that I'm just a whore You opened up my centerfold Before I could take off my clothes I'll give you the woman you think I am But I'll love you like a mannequin
