Sheep
from Grim Confections 2010

You are lost
Damaged beyond repair
The dead soul department
All my dears,
I've lost you and I know you can't survive
The world is big and full of fright
You haven't got half the mind
There's no hope for you
It's the end...
"Leave 'em alone and they'll come home and bring their tails behind them"
You are lost you are lost
You poor things have gone astray
I know that you are blind
Following a naughty road
Domino suicide
It's pathetic don't pretend...
"Leave 'em alone and they'll come home and bring their tails behind them"
I surrender
You are not mine to mend
One day you'll wash ashore
Lifeless on forgotten sand
All is wasted
Dig your grave
"Leave 'em alone and they'll come home and bring their tails behind them"
The dead soul department
You are lost

Meaning and Symbolism: These lyrics send a direct, unambiguous message of a fatal foretelling of doom and darkness to many people. A warning from which they cannot escape. But who art these blind, half minded sheep? The world, mainstream society? The gothic subculture? Anyone who hears the message? You were left alone and now you've come home with a tail behind you. What now but decadence?

We'll build a dirty ritual
An alter on fire
we'll build a dirty ritual
we'll find our own messiah

Give us our communion now
sometime we'd forgotten how
we need blood and sacrifice
felt the noose paid the price
this unholy time we pray
will not be our judgement day

We'll build a dirty ritual
An alter on fire
we'll build a dirty ritual
we'll find our own messiah

Keep us quiet, medicate
all these lives that suffocate
when we're numb and still with fear
we won't know what brought us here
we can hardly concentrate
on who we are are and what we hate

We'll build a dirty ritual
An alter on fire
we'll build a dirty ritual
we'll find our own messiah

Meaning and Symbolism: First off, this is what, in a perfect world, should have been a massive hit single and from the debut album Underground Light Machine. I hope gothic / industrial / witch house DJs are still aware of it and include it because it is a perfect 2 minutes and 45 seconds of mid-tempo, swirling, dark dance floor bliss.

Lyrically, it is a direct call to pride and power for a an unflinchingly dark, blasphemous spirituality, with references to the persecution and death sentences given to similar practicers of centuries past.

Illuminate
Glow worms light the way
Into the strange
Violet dusk of cellophane

Popping up popping up popping up
Popping up popping up popping up

Fiber-optic display
Vines of Paper Mache
Ever growing in shape
Over peaks that radiate

Popping up popping up popping up
Popping up popping up popping up

Tripping on a swirl
It's a trap
Get out get out get out!
What's there in the distance?
Snap out of the paralysis

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Wonders to distract you
Keep you from the horizon
Uncover this twilight

Crackle appear
Velvet meadows near
Stepping into the queer

Bound for eclipse

Popping up popping up popping up
Popping up popping up popping up

Meaning and Symbolism: The Seven of Cups

Apocolypse
inside your hand
matches strike, your demand
stars gone out
mirrors break
nothing more, give or take
I watch you set the world on fire
we watch the world disintegrate
I find you with one desire
we watch the world disintegrate
Dirty magic casts a spell
ashes fall souls to tell
sacred heart on it's knees
voodoo scars no one sees
coursing through every vein
the disease meets with restrain
blood is spilled violent red
broken words never said
I watch you set the world on fire
we watch the world disintegrate
I find you with one desire
we watch the world disintegrate
Turning out burning eyes
faded convoluted skies
dead asylums, haunted sleep
madmen find, madmen keep
hang on an inverted cross
cornerstones to touch the loss
mark my words, a record bare
salem burns till no one's there
I watch you set the world on fire
we watch the world disintegrate
I find you with one desire
we watch the world disintegrate
Blinding how your tinders glow -Incinerate
Incandescent tortures grow- Incinerate

Meaning and Symbolism: From Underground Light Machine, her debut album. Lyrics are very direct. A vision of pure destruction. Cindergarden's relationship with the destructor is more opaque. The destructor reveling in the power of destruction. Sacred heart on its knees, inverted crosses. They watch the world disintegrate together, above it all. Fire, glowing tinders alight - the basis of the name Cindergarden. In the destruction and tortures there is light.
