Strobe Light 03:56
Flash of your throat as you breathe Someone I don't know Caught by the light, then straight away let go Someone I don't know Best face forward to the night Secrets cast like shots of light Is this you I think I know Is it how you live or how you show Kindest darkness, speak to me The half-truth strobe light honesty Halfway hidden, halfway seen The half-truth strobe light honesty Strobe light show for someone I don't know

There was a time, when our future looked oh so bright But we wasted on our dreams until they seemed so far away Now that I know the truth I know there's no going back to you If we spent our time together better, we'd have a life to look forward to Let's have a good time while we don't need to hide from the sunshine Spend every minute like it's the end of our bloodline Let's have a great time even if it's never gonna be alright We'll spend every moment like tomorrow will never see the light Now is the time for our very last embrace goodbye The sun has dried our dreams and all we built in disarray Now that you know the truth you know I never meant harm to you But what's done is done, let's dry our tears and embrace a thousand darker years Let's have a good time while we don't need to hide from the sunshine Spend every minute like it's the end of our bloodline Let's have a great time even if it's never gonna be alright We'll spend every moment like tomorrow will never see the light ...tomorrow will never see the light

Pet Ceremony 04:43
Precious friend, I know I've failed you countless times I'm sure And take for granted all your love so warm and pure Give you almost nothing in exchange I hold your world And I want to, oh I want to I want the wisdom to decide your fate Make sure the very best in life is always yours to take Unquestioning, you never falter Precious friend your innocence it cuts me to the core Your eyes reflect the universe's softest glow Give in to this feeling and I exchange this doubt for brilliant conviction Oh I want to We'll keep each other safe forevermore Like others of our kinds have done ten thousand times before Unquestioning, you never falter

Death Note 04:27
If you find me cold and blue one day, I'll regret everything And if I failed you, I can't say how many years it took To get things this wrong, oh well I tried to show you how I feel about you But it came out sharp and cruel, like her Our time will come when we will look back on this day And wonder how things went so wrong, oh well And I'll see you in the sea of light, if you want Where that beam so brightly casts a gorgeous glow In the fields of sun that shone so brightly down I'll be resting face down in the pool below the ground Face down in the pool below the ground And when this song is done, we might as well just let it run out Believe me that I tried to tear it down amid the razor wire But in my blood there lives a wolf that howls a dark familiar song So just point the silver bullet to my skull and end it all And I'll see you in the sea of light, if you want Where that beam so brightly casts a gorgeous glow In the fields of sun that shone so brightly down I'll be resting face down in the pool below the ground A way, a way A way into the light We go, we go Away into the night

Operating close by the forest floor Near her growing and decaying décor All the lovely trees in this town I know Like the elm and oak, ash and maple Watch the seasons turn, be it fast or slow Broken buds to fallen leaves on the snow Trees that tower high as the people go About their business of making ends meet And procrastinating about nearly everything of value - if only we knew We're just Babes in the Woods We've missed the teddy bear's picnic And there's no going back now Babes in the Woods or something like that Overhanging boughs cradle all our days Know the way through this impossible maze That the human race finds so commonplace So oblivious and all is for shame Saving everyday for vacation plane tickets hoping to escape the mundane If we'd listen to the trees we would be amazed About how they've long ago perfected Out-of-body travel to Venus, Mars and Saturn While down here we stay, so it seems to remain Babes in the Woods We've missed the teddy bear's picnic And there's no going back now Babes in the Woods or something like that We're just a drop in the bucket That thinks it's a god Babes in the Woods or something like that

How can we know the way, when we're always led astray? How can we know who to fight, when they've taken all our rights? Why do we maintain that we can handle everything? When the world is breaking apart and we can hardly feel our hearts And our children's net worth can be summed in 140 words We can try to break away or become control We can try to break away or become control When the people rule the world, will we become control? How can we know the way when we're always led astray? How can we know who to fight, when they've taken all our rights? Why do we maintain that we can handle everything? When the world is breaking apart and we can hardly feel our hearts They'll fall to their knees, but we'll break their fall When the people rule the world, will we become control?

Illuminati 04:35
I proclaim In the name The name of light The light of love I A O I A O

Give Me More 03:10
So what do you think, this whole thing stinks and maybe it is time to pack it in and blow away So what do you say, this whole scene's lame and chances are our chances never were or have passed away So what do you know, it's time to throw ourselves against an unforgiving steel door and what do I say? Give me more, give me more Yes I'm too dumb to know when it's time to give up and go home Give me more, even precious little more Life kills everyone in time, oh give me more Is that what you want? This whole thing's shot it went and fizzled out just when we started getting hot Is that what you do? Oh me and you have got some very hard important issues to work through Is that what you are? It's gone too far it stole my youth, I never noticed until now, oh god and what can I say? Give me more, give me more I can never give this dream up, no, this downfall I adore Give me more, even precious little more Life kills everyone in time, oh give me more More deception and more violence Half my life I gave to science More deception and more violence Life kills everyone in time, oh give me more

The cancer's feeding on hateful feelings It's rising higher, it is our future We cannot stop now, hate will outlast us all He is the god that will destroy you all It's our existence, there's no resistance We fueled the fire whose name is Doomsday Every child born will bare his sign Holy men will worship at his shrine His fires will rage a thousand years He's the god for the end of time We are fires burning We are suffocating We are ground collapsing We are oceans rising We are the age of nothing We are the idols melting We are the dark advancing We are the cursed aeon We are the damned

Streets are lined with golden prophets Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Bicycles are moving targets Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Have you ever had your bicycle stolen? Such an asshole thing to do Have you ever had your bicycle stolen? Never fails to derail your good intentions Meters deep the snows have fallen Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Damned efficient is the plowman Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Have you ever had your animal lust awoken? Made to feel 14 again Have you ever had your animal lust awoken? Never fails to derail your good intentions Springtime brings the fragile flowers Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Suicide to count the hours Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Have you ever had your precious heart broken? Gave your all to what could never be Have you ever had your precious heart broken? Never fails to derail your good intentions

about

Ghost Twin Winnipeg, Manitoba

Ghost Twin is dark synthpop with roaring synthlines, dirty pulsing bass, dreamy guitar, and a haunting vocal dichotomy where Baroque meets Industrial, with live video percussion that feeds cinema through a cut-up technique imbued with occult aesthetics. ... more
