Track Name: An Introduction To Insanity
Sing to me. (< Basic outline of the whole song! Easy, right?)

So what is the diagnosis, Doctor?
Track Name: Cupcake Casanova
We’re Cupcake Casanova

Icing smeared all over

Sprinkles falling on the floor

Who wants a Cupcake Casanova?



Nova is a cake in cup

We like to dance we like to strut

Sewing stabbing needle thread

Cupcakes are better when you’re dead

Icing kisses are all the rage

Sitting in our iron cage

In our broken hearts you’ll stay

Do you want to come and play?



We’re Cupcake Casanova

Icing smeared all over

Sprinkles falling on the floor

Who wants a Cupcake Casanova?



Do you like the fan or flame?

Love isn’t always a winning game

Death, Emperor, Fool, and Pope,

The cards will show your future hopes

Sugarmint burns the tongue

That's the way we like them young

Care to sing? Care to dance?

Can’t leave now you’re in our trance


We’re Cupcake Casanova

Icing smeared all over

Sprinkles falling on the floor

Who wants a Cupcake Casanova?



\Instrumental


Give me the beat /with the bass like thunder
kiss, inject, /belladonna to plunder
needle in the arteries, /more/more give me more
mint, kill, vanilla, blood, /ectemy gore.
Give me the speed that invokes /pure Chaos
find me in the swamp with the /syrup boy gloss
sick, blank, sweet, rum, skeleton, /tattered,
always leave my black and white stockings shattered.


We’re Cupcake Casanova

Icing smeared all over

Sprinkles falling on the floor

We put lives in disorder

Track Name: Mask
Mask


Ivory faces with paint on the sides

All you can see is my mouth and my eyes

How I wish to drop this pathetic charade

But honesty can bring the rush of a blade

So I’m left with this bloody task

locked behind this face, my mask



A single ribbon holds the mask in place

Where the real you should fill it's space

Why should I have to hide my love for you

I just want to take it off so I can be true

But the world can be cruel friends raise your flask

Says the hushed mind, the mask



Life can be a fickle mistress

Friends are left speechless

Duct tape is silver and more preferred

No one wants to hear, don’t say a word

Acceptance is in short supply

I’d rather be dead than alive

Pick up the discarded piece of clay

Put it back on, it’s the only way

Dance life’s dance just to survive

Lying is the best way to thrive

Tie the bow behind your head

The mask will never be shed



Tired of this part I’m forced to play

Why is the truth shoved far away

Break the ties that hold this sham in place

See the real me, see my face

Clatter and crack, chip and break

Take away everything that’s fake

I charge you now everything's at stake

Embrace your neighbor to thine own self be true

Remove the mask and be the real you

Track Name: The Plague Song
Squeak
Scrat
Goes the Rat
Up and down the drain and back

Ring Around the Rosie
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes, Ashes
We all fall down

Black, Bloody, in your tears,
hidden in your darkest fears,
your future slowly growing vague,
theres no running from the plague

Squeak
Scrat
Goes the Rat
Up and down the drain and back

Better hide
Better run
It won't be long for Death to come

Red blood
black sores
go to sleep forevermore

Ring Around the Rosie
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes, Ashes
We all fall down
Track Name: Isolated
Isolated

A crowded room and an army of faces
You try to speak but the names are misplaced and
There's a sinking, being alone
You smile on so it doesn't show
The slamming door of an iron cage
Another tear stained diary page
Watching the others live out their lives
You were lost and they said no goodbyes

The hours tick away so slow
The silence is building and I don't even know
I've been sentenced to this desolate place
What have i done to fall from grace

(Chorus)
Why am I so
Isolated
My room has become a prison cell
Isolated
Left alone in this silent hell
Unable to move, unable to cry
End this misery, let me fly

But no matter how hard you try
You're left alone wondering why
Do they run away so far
Away from the pariah you are.
Friendship slowly starts to die
They say they'll always be there but that was a lie
And health is too a fairweathered friend
Leaving me ill and unable to mend

Wasting away a day at time
And nobody cares or even asks if I'm fine
How long until I'm free to go
And when will the light lose it's glow

(Chorus)

(Interlude)

(Breakdown)
Time and again
Here without a friend
No place holds a place for me
Wishing for it all to end
And day by day
It all stays the same
Counting down the hours away
When can I leave this place
And go back
to where I came

Where the light is warm
And everyone cares
Where the wings are strong and no one hates
And all the love is shared

(Final Chorus)
I don't want to be
Isolated
Free me from my cage and empty room
Isolated
I want to be flying free from all the gloom
Broken chains and happy sighs
Now I'm finally free to fly

I'm no longer
Isolated
The pain has come to an end
Isolated
Finally at home and with a friend
My soul is free I could almost cry
No more suffering, free...am....I

I think I'm fallin in love
x-marks your heart,
I got my throwin knives!
X-marks your heart,
love is war prepair to die!

Track Name: The Raven
'Quote The Raven Nevermore....'


Once upon a midnight dreary
He woke to his bed
heart so teary
hearing the dirges of his love
hoping she landed a spot above



Waves Ashore,
Lost Lenore,
Nameless here forever more



missing her presence oh so dearly
there came a tapping, a tapping so clear,
that guests have come to visit assured
into the darkness his soul allured



Waves Ashore,
Lost Lenore,
Darkness there and nothing more
(:quote the raven nevermore)



bravery struck he called out quick, (Lenore)
echos came back, through walls so thick.
life he knew it, might be it to end,
reality looked as if it were to bend,



when perched a raven ever so neatly
sang a song ever so sweetly
darkening depths are near to come,
not only one but some,
what's known to be alive is alive
and what is dead is dust on the knife,
insanity sparks and is washed ashore
quote the raven "nevermore"



Nevermore, Nevermore.

Quote the Raven Nevermore.



and with that the night had come to a close
another night of sorrow and woes,
no telling what tomorrow may bring,
so shall the raven return and sing


Empty Shore,
Close the door,
T'was the wind and nothing more



Quote The Raven "Nevermore."
