Track Name: Mama Gold
Chilled glass, warm thighs
Cocaine shadows round the eyes
And as we cavort around in the garden of jewels
We take them from the necks of debutantes and fools
And Mr. Bedlam conducting quite a tense refrain
The Pistol craves a diamond symphony

And if you're leaving dear
She says it with a two-carat smile
Your charity won't be refused
So open all your hearts and pocket-books wide
Oh and do tread lightly babes, for if you wish to test what you've been told
Just know that your bodies will break, under the spell of Mama Gold

Blinded by the blade, the glitterati frowned and froze,
The men then help themselves to coffers deep, beneath the candelabra's glow
And if you try your luck, a fool would only be so bold
For greed will never die, and neither will she... Mama Gold

Black heart, cold eyes
Pistol lusting for their cries
In the night, the organ churns a gothic lullaby

We'll do a favor, he crudely speaks
We'll take the dough and there's no need to grieve
And Mama, she takes a bow and makes to leave
A gallant had to go and make a scene

You're never leaving here,
He says it as he goes to bar the door
I won't let my dignity go and walk across the Tuscan marble floor
Now if you leave quietly, Beretta shaking loosely in his hands
Surrender your plunder and go, and you won't have to test this man

Now, my dear, please move aside
We have no souls, we lived, we died.
He fired once into her silken thigh,
No blood. No Pain.
She said, "Alright."

Wave of her palm and, the cold metal feeling
Wells up, it started in his toes
And seeing his new body, he cries out, "NO!" before he turns to gold
And say now, my dear honey, I think you'd serve better, a monument of old
And to you others and your money, I hope you're happy, you lived through Mama Gold
Track Name: Babes in the Wood
Breathing fast.
The jangle as the chain link snaps.
Came so far.
No time to stop.
Enchanting, yet macabre.

The tunnel faintly glows.
A story every child knows.
The locket sealed by fingers gossamer,
Would usher he and her.

Grinning cave before them, so far from the mundane.
Above the town where men conceal the little intrigue in their veins.
Under the humming lights of the five and dime,
Where she grew up all her life.
She felt the power in his eyes.
He's not afraid to let it shine.

So bow down.
The whispers start to roar.
The locket falls onto the ground.
A burst of flame erupts from the powers held deep in its core.
Shaking, the clock was stopped for good.
Marked to stay eternal, they're forever as babes in the wood.

Watching him.
The whispering was cold and grim.
The cavern sealed by rock and bone.
No place to call their own...
Descending cautiously, the sliver of a voice speaks.
"On the day you find mortality... the last days of magic will be."

Moon paled against the lights.
The colors were sublime.
Bathing across the lovers' eyes.
They drink the rain and mountain wine.
And though the days they were keeping,
The locket still beating.
A clock of strange design.
A hundred tiny moving hands and every one slowing in time.

So bow down.
The whispers start to roar.
The locket falls onto the ground.
A burst of flame erupts from the powers held deep in its core.
Shaking, the clock was stopped for good.
Marked to stay eternal, they're forever as babes in the wood.
