    With our new album, 'Short Tales & Tall Shadows', our intent was to be a lot different from anything we had done before. We wanted to create a dark artistic album, more Goth than before, with a strong flavor of theatricality but also with a bit more of a modern sound than its predecessors.

KING PEST THE FIRST This is the rotten side of the city That only crooks prefer to share The air is thick and tastes like poison The hideout is for those who dare There are six friends 'round the table In the undertaker’s lair One of them floating in a coffin He shook and took a breath of air... TREASON shouted everyone As they slapped away my grin TREASON was the word that echoed In this parish of death and sin ''Be our guest'' Said King Pest The First The skeleton chandelier hung Above the Queen's funeral shroud While the man wrapped as a mummy Could hardly move or make a sound Ana-Pest, the Arch Duchess, Poured some liquor in a skull But there was one more man among them Whose funeral clothes were rather dull... TREASON shouted everyone As they slapped away my grin TREASON was the word that echoed In this parish of death and sin ''Be our guest'' Said King Pest The First ''Know then that in these dominions I am monarch, and here rule with undivided empire under the title of 'King Pest Τhe First'.'' Forever

PEN LIKE A KNIFE Most of the people Are afraid, of being alone… When lips taste like poison, They keep swallowing till the end. You hate, the one you loved once So you write down how you feel… Words, hurt like bullets So make sure, they won’t return Pen, Pen like a knife Pen down her name And go on with your life Pen, Pen like a knife Carving his name And go on with your life… You break up for awhile And then you try again… Don’t you know, if it breaks once It will never work again.

MY REAPER The voices... they're calling my name... In darkness... every day is the same And as the music plays... I long to end my days. The heartache... it's so painful to feel... In silence... The torment's so real... Crawling deeper and deeper... So close now to my reaper. And as the music plays... I long to end my days... Spinning around and around Till my feet don't touch the ground But a hope that is tomorrow Could end these tears of sorrow... Spinning around and around Till my feet don't touch the ground

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE Call me day or night Call me anytime and I'll be there. I will catch a plane or the late night train just to find you. In a Babylonian desert you and me. Laughing hard in the shade of a palm tree. Message me in time and we'll sip our wine in Alaska. I will fight the waves and 1000 brave ones but I'll find you In an Amazonian forest you might be, Hostage of a tribe that lives upon the trees. Love can get me anywhere, Down the rabbit hole For your love Call me day or night Call me anytime and I'll be there. I will catch a plane or the late night train just to find you. In a psychedelic dream I saw us two Playing hide and seek upon the moon Love can get me anywhere, Down the rabbit hole For your love

GARDEN OF MAZES There's a house over the hills, Where a little lady lives, There's a maze around the house And she tries to find the way out. The world is distant from her room She stares for hours to find a route As she runs near, To what seemed clear, She finds the exit's disappeared Garden of Mazes Where we once came to play But we lost ourselves along the way Garden of Mazes An impossible place We run inside it, deep inside our brains There's a man looking for you Little lady can you hear? He's calling out your name Cause to him you are so dear But the hour strikes heavy, now it's clear Garden of Mazes Where we once came to play But we lost ourselves along the way Garden of Mazes An impossible place We run inside it, deep inside our brains

DEADLY DOLLHOUSE Tonight... Like every other night While all humans are sleeping Us, the toys that is, come out of the woodwork And we are gathered to dance. Just like every night I am happy to dance with my darling, Lucy My favorite doll. She's been here for a long time. Long before me, long before the Master bought me. But I fell in love with her from the first time I saw her. So every night, I walk down the stairs right after 12 o'clock when all humans are sleeping, When the Master is snoring To meet her . (sigh) But tonight... Tonight Lucy is not here. All the other couples are dancing in front of the fireplace. I asked around but she is not here. It's snowing outside. And I don't wanna think that she is out. I sit by the fireplace. Watching the flames dance... And there... There... I saw her. I saw her shoes in the fireplace. And her eyes looking at me. Never to be... Never to be...

SHUT UP There comes a time When you have enough of someone Cause when he speaks He ruins your whole day No more lies No more of his mad behavior Say it loud Spit it in his face That he better shut up shut up shut up Say it like you mean it Shut up shut up shut up Don't you show your face round here no more They do you wrong Thinking you'll be here forever They won't change Don't be that naive No more lies No more of his mad behavior Say it loud Spit it in his face

Tarot Card Reader I’m sure you always wonder what The future holds for you What’s wrong. What greater secrets, Which past is best to choose… Stars, signs, and constellations It’s all the same to her A deck of cards and some red wine That’s everything she needs…. Tarot Card Tarot Card Reader If what you see is what you get Then treat these cards with full respect. She asks the High Priestess The Empress or the Fool A sip of wine for every card To follow her own rule… So if you wanna know more Pay her, she’s not a liar. Before she lays dreaming and wine will get her higher… Tarot Card Tarot Card Reader If what you see is what you get Then treat these cards with full respect. She can read cards for others But these cards won’t reveal Why darkness took her lover… Who is it to blame? Who is it to hate?
