Track Name: The Chamber Ritual
Lying in my chamber

Wind in my skull, uninhabitable
Wind in my skull, in a cave of mannequins

The buildings are tired of standing
Every movement's too demanding
Track Name: Chinese Tea
She's so desperate, kind
Arrows in the sky
I know there's gonna be

I don't want to fight
I will stay the night
The view is killing me

Everybody wants to know
Why I'm not in control
Why I'm waiting for the movies, for the lights
It was just a little crime
And I'm trying so I don't see it magnified

Looking for flesh in the house of fashion
There's no more doors, 'cause you missed or passed the most
You dropped it all on a Chinese teacup
You want to know, but you won't believe them

She's so desperate, kind
I'm not far behind, I know

And I don't wanna die
Don't wish I was dead
But sometimes I feel bad
Track Name: Hanging Gardens
Julius Caesar was brought to his knees
I think when he died his spirit entered me
I slept alongside elephants and men
And written battle plans on the backs of my hands
I've had epiphanies that were more like demands
And made temples rise from clusters of sand
I'm a tempest in a monastery
A mute in a library
A villain temporarily confined to a bird sanctuary
Have I been impossible?
Have I caused too much trouble?
Have I let down all my friends?

I want to be understood
I want to be misunderstood
Track Name: The Jungle is Dark and Full of Diamonds
Brando shades his eyes
Cigarette burns his hand
Reads the script, she moves her lips
And the hero dies in the end

Nostalgia fades in line
Venture foreign lands
Lose your shit when the chorus hits
And the hero dies in the end

The jungle's dark, and it's full of diamonds

One hundred gods
You're on your own
