new song lyrics

that's right, dammit, I can write songs too, you know. (and nobody else seems to be....) anyway, I was stuck in the train station today and some girls were reading that twelve dancing princes whatever manga by halo's angel, the chick who's collaborating with mars? anyway, I scribbled this out on the back of my train schedule, thought we could do the video in kind of the same theme, you know? kind of like labyrinth or something, lots of candles and sleeves and masks and bubbles and shit. You figure out the details, JL, I'm just the face in this outfit.


minuet

through my crystal and champagne I saw your face
an angel in this nightmare out of place
spinning like a clockwork doll entranced
body born for another kind of dance

turn but never touch
it's really just too much
the tedium and blush
so bloodless and unrushed

minuet minuet
it's no dance for you
minuet minuet
lies are never true
minuet minuet
know what you'd rather do

So warm your fingers slipped into my glove
the pounding of my heartbeat isn't love
draw me into the distance of your arms
your stillness and your motion is your charm

never meet their eyes
o so keen in your disguise
lilies gilded with your lies
but once the music dies

minuet minuet
it's no dance for you
minuet minuet
lies are never true
minuet minuet
know what you'd rather do

make you bleed make you cry
make you mine you know I
never dance the minuet
never dance the minuet

minuet minuet
can only dance with you
minuet minuet
I can't bring myself to rue
minuet minuet
what you've turned me

awesome, twist.
love your idea for the video. that movie rocks (though it kind of scared me when i was little or whatever)!

grey snakeskin. i can see it now. seriously, i have great imagination... they'll have to hire riot police for our next gig. ;)
