Track Name: Ballerina
Mary's done so well to find her Romeo
Oh! in time will he his soul bare?
En avant sauté, she loves him,
Cavalier will find her some day.

Many an ethereal girl of idle reverie has wept
A million tears o'er the boy in the mirror as he pirouettes.

Mary's done so well, a prima ballerina,
Designer of worlds.
'Yond a gateway lain a meadow,
Her studio, a sylvan domain.

A rivulet curves, a bough bows, her tender arm shaping air.
Infinity variant form arabesque, he sees her...

Move through air faster than light,
Pull her soul from a void,
Flee from a tiresome plight,
Dance there unto the night.

Many an ethereal girl of idle reverie has wept
A million tears o'er the boy in the mirror as he...

Moves through air faster than light,
Pulls her soul from a void.
Flee from a tiresome plight,
Dance there unto the night.
Dance there unto the night.
Track Name: Silhouette of a Boy Ruined
It's important to realise when we've fallen annihilant.
Through a dormancy never tiring I'm beholden to hold on.
And you gave me a farewell to carry home.
How does anyone deal with this woe?

A silhouette of a boy ruined,
And all addresses fall through him,
A silhouette of a boy ruined.

It's important to realise that no man is an island.
For that which you will espy, my apologies, John Donne.
Immured in four walls, a closed hand.
How can any endure when this sad?

A silhouette of a boy ruined,
And all addresses fall through him,
A silhouette of a boy ruined.

You made me realise with April come showers.
You made me realise the song and its power.
You made me realise...

A silhouette of a boy ruined,
And all addresses fall through him,
A silhouette of a boy ruined.
Track Name: Pandora
How did it come to pass? Your honesty ruined us.
You only told me of that boy, 'cause you know I am easily hurt,
So how can I go on pretending you're just someone I know?

And you've surely realised...

That with every boy you fuck, to me the more beautiful you are.
Boy, this sucks, I should've known from the start.

This was only meant to be casual, we agreed.
You say you went home with that boy because you're in love with me,
So how can I go on pretending you're just someone I know?

And you've surely realised...

That with every boy you fuck, to me the more beautiful you are.
Boy, this sucks - our having not seen it from the start.
Take my hand, a second take from the top.
We made our plans before we realised what this was.

And you've surely realised...

That with every boy you fuck, to me the more beautiful you are.
Boy, this sucks - our having not seen it from the start.
Take my hand, a second take from the top.
We made our plans before we realised what this was,
That we're in love, Pandora.
Track Name: Romance
I see you in the dull of a chamber,
You look the other way in the arm of a jailor.
I see you in every reflection,
For all I ever do is return to the past.
It's true what they say, a love affair never did run this way.
Togetherness made us sad - the chaos in the marriage of equal souls.

We were young, in need of adventure
Like every girl and boy with a colourful nature.
It takes two to cover harmony,
Ah! but then who ever gave us a chance?
It's true what they say, a love affair never did run this way.
Togetherness made us sad - the chaos in the marriage of equal souls.

Sing me a love song on the romance of life.
Light me a candle in the midst of a fire.
Remember the secret places in innocent days of reverie?
Forever to be alone, forever to be someone who had it all.

But then love is not like a candle,
It doesn't burn away, it endures in the detail.
I see you in the sway of a veil,
The way that we would dance irrespective of time
As the band performed our song, the one in which the heroine killed for love.
Togetherness made us sad, but a wed infinity gave us hope.

Sing me a love song on the romance of life.
Light me a candle in the midst of a fire.
Remember the secret places in innocent days of reverie?
As the band performed our song, the one in which the heroine killed for love.
Togetherness made us sad, but a wed infinity gave us hope.
