Track Name: Master Maiden (The Legend Thereof)
Master Maiden checked his bags at the bar, left his keys in the car, and locked the door.
Master Maiden held an apple in his hand, crossed the street to join a band cause he was bored.

Thinking ‘bout the story, of the conquest, and the glory.
Of the dirty German waitress who left town.

The party lingered on for days and days.
The drinks and hors d'oeuvres were amazing.
But I’m afraid there is no way, for anyone not to say, that the legend was born.

Master Maiden took the painting off the wall, made a cellular phone call, from the stairwell.
Master Maiden wanted only to explain, that he need to complain that he’s not well.

Thinking ‘bout the story, of the conquest, and the glory.
Of the dirty German waitress who left town.

The party lingered on for days and days.
The drinks and hors d'oeuvres were amazing.
But I’m afraid there is no way, for anyone not to say, that the legend lives on.

The party lingered on for days and days.
The drinks and hors d'oeuvres were amazing.
But I’m afraid there is no way, for anyone not to say, that the legend lives on.
Well I’m afraid there is no way, for anyone not to say, that the legend lives on.
That the legend lives on.
That the legend lives on.
That the legend lives on.
Track Name: The Manticore
In the crystal citadel, where the rivers run blue with fire.
Lies the sacred mask and the object of your desire.
Beyond the purple forests, and the mountains full of gold.
Lies the ancient horror whose story remains untold.

Deep in the caverns, and across the sky with blazing sun.
Rose the beast of ages, whose evil remains undone.
You must defeat him before the Mantid Helix aligns.
When the ritual begins the dark star begins to climb.

The Manticore will capture you with his gilded speech.
The Manticore will poison you with his vision of doubt.
The Manticore makes promises he will never keep.
The Manticore will transfix you, never let you out.

Spoken with trepidation it is folly to doubt his power.
Forming ill foundations it is your mind he’ll devour.
Clinging to the memory, you read the coda of his spell.
Transmogrification of the ego’s fragile shell.

Casting through the void, juxtaposition with the stars.
Reaching for the portal, event horizon stretches far.
The astral door has opened myopic efforts were in vain.
Reflections in the fountain, your image is now the same.

The Manticore will capture you with his gilded speech.
The Manticore will poison you with his vision of doubt.
The Manticore makes promises he will never keep.
The Manticore will transfix you, never let you out.

Beware The Manticore. Behold The Manticore.
Defeat The Manticore. Become The Manticore.
Entice The Manticore. Embrace The Manticore.
Seduce The Manticore. Enslave The Manticore.

Beware The Manticore. Behold The Manticore.
Defeat The Manticore. Become The Manticore.
Entice The Manticore. Embrace The Manticore.
Seduce The Manticore. Enslave The Manticore.
Beware The Manticore. Behold The Manticore.
Defeat The Manticore. You’re Now The Manticore.
Track Name: Secret Whispers
Secret whispers in this hall, secret whispers in the dark.
Reflects desires in us all, takes the passage for the fall.
Secret whispers for this night, secret whispers past the door.
Begin the movement of this rite, marks the ending of our flight.

Secret whispers in this hall, secret whispers in the dark.
Reflects desires in us all, takes the passage for the fall.
Secret whispers for this night, secret whispers past the door.
Begin the movement of this rite, marks the ending of our flight.

Break the key discard the chord, draw the breath unsheath the sword.
Break the key discard the chord, draw the breath unsheath the sword.
Track Name: Alvin's Hot Juice Box
I drank Alvin's hot juicebox, when I come home from school.
He had left it on the counter, but that ain't nothing new.
I drank Alvin's hot juicebox, when he left it alone.
The yellow dog wasn't looking so I stole it, and I went home

Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.

I drank Alvin's hot juicebox, when I was hiding in the dark.
I was with a yellow-haired human that I had met at the park.
I drank Alvin's hot juicebox, when I was thirsty at night.
Cookie Princess doesn't mind if I.... shut off the light.

Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.
Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.
It's all that I want when I walk out the door.

I don't use a straw. It's not against the law. I just wait and I strike. Then I squeeze with all my might!

Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.
Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.
Alvin's hot juicebox, Alvin's hot juicebox, when are you gonna get me some more.
It's all that I want when you walk through the door.
Track Name: White Dove
There’s a kaleidescope on the inside of my eyes. Like looking down on city from a distant hillside.
Squeeze with all your might, just to see what you see. Little circles of light race around as fast as can be.

Staring at the sun through silent eyes, don’t wear that disguise, you make me despise.
You’re all that I see, and all that I hear, ain’t you aware? I know you don’t care.
And when she falls
And then she calls
And I break down and go running to her.
Wearing a silver white dove.

Cigarette wants to be lit, dangles from your lip. Choose your poison; touch, taste, or noise it’s all hip.
High flying upside down on a big jet plane. The view of you from here’s enough to drive me insane.

Staring at the sun through silent eyes, don’t wear that disguise, you make me despise.
You’re all that I see, and all that I hear, ain’t you aware? I know you don’t care.
And when she falls
And then she calls
And I break down and go running to her.
Wearing a silver white dove.

Staring at the sun through silent eyes, don’t wear that disguise, you make me despise.
You’re all that I see, and all that I hear, ain’t you aware? I know you don’t care.
And when she falls
And then she calls
And I break down and go running to her.
And when she falls
And then she calls
And I break down and go running to her.
Wearing a silver white dove.
Wearing a silver white dove.
Wearing a silver white dove.
Wearing a silver white dove.
Track Name: Peach Tree
Doom impending the people will follow, the man with the golden hand back to his borrow.
By the underground alter we gather. To live safe from this world ever after.

Here by the peach tree. All of the flavor is free.
Here by the peach tree. All of the taste is complete.

Now we’re free from the struggle above, our subjugation has ended in love.
No more sadness in our blissful hollow. Never to worry again for tomorrow.

Here by the peach tree. All of the flavor is free.
Here by the peach tree. All of the taste is complete.

The glowing candy falls from the branches. The sweetest fruit ever made.
What were the chances.
Then strange floods come and wash away the people. Alone stands the golden man.
Smiling his evil.

Here by the peach tree. All of the flavor is free.
Here by the peach tree. All of the taste is.....
Here by the peach tree. All of the flavor is free.
Here by the peach tree. All of the taste is complete.
is complete.
is complete.
is complete.
Track Name: Seal Of "A"
Counting backwards, the stars in sets of seven.
Waking slumbers, beneath the fires of heaven.
Premonitions in white are just the past.
Forget my symbols that were spoken last.
The child's riddle begins.

Caution the host because we beware the word.
Remove the seal and become the third.
Remove the mask, become the fifth.
Enter the obelisk to receive the gift.

Blackened mysteries in a sea of gray.
Embrace the serpent's return at dawn of day.
Prince Kahn has climbed the mountain of Thoth.
Received his message that subconscious wrought.
Channel the Prophet of Law.

Caution the host because we beware the word.
Remove the seal and become the third.
Remove the mask, become the fifth.
Enter the obelisk to receive the gift.

When the sun is eternal to the west and the east,
Enter the seal of "A" and return to the union with the divine beast, with the divine beast.
When your thoughts have traveled through the celestial sphere,
Drink from the knowledge and begin the ritual but speak of nothing learned here, of
nothing learned here.
Track Name: Monster Rock Girl (Reprise)
I met you at the show, you were in the back with your friends.
Doing dirty deeds on your world domination tour.
You wouldn’t talk to me, you just stared me down with those eyes.
Holding me in place so that you could put your spell on me.

You said, “I really like your guitar”, I said “I really dig your claws come on and show me what you really are”.

You’re a Monster Rock Girl, shutup and talk girl, kick’em in the nuts girl, standing tall Monster Rock Girl.

There was a full moon out when you looked at me and let out a howl.
You’re not like other girls, you certainly have way more hair.
We left the gig for your flat when you said “I want to show you my coffin”.
When I felt the first bite, I knew I’d never be the same.

You said, “Hey I like your speedo”, I said “I really dig your fangs that’s when I knew what you
really are”.

You’re a Monster Rock Girl, shutup and talk girl, kick’em in the nuts girl, standing tall Monster Rock Girl.
You’re a Monster Rock Girl, shutup and talk girl, kick’em in the nuts girl, standing tall Monster Rock Girl.

When I finally went home and I turned on the light.
I feel the burn of your love and the taste of my fright.
I know I’ll see you again cause you’re in my nightmares. And I don’t care.

You’re A Monster Rock Girl
You’re A Monster Rock Girl
You’re A Monster Rock Girl
You’re A Monster Rock Girl
Track Name: Metal Night
We didn't make it at metal night.
They didn't think that we looked quite right
We didn't have the cool tats, we were old, were fat.
We didn't make it at metal night.

We got tossed off the country tour.
No entertainment for man and horse.
We didn't have a Ford truck, some old guy told us we suck.
We got tossed off the country tour.

They kicked us out at the indie gig.
They trashed the band in the Weekly Dig.
We didn't have the right clothes, or an ironic pose.
They kicked us out at the indie gig.

We go on six hour drives jut to play empty dives.
The public pretty much hates fuzz rock from seventy-eight, but that's or fate.

We aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough
We aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough, we aren't metal enough
We didn't make it at metal night
Track Name: Settle Down Francis
Yeah it started like a ready made blurb when you heard that song playing on the radio.
You couldn’t turn the channel it brought you right back to 1978.
Well that melody left you dyspeptic like a green on red stop sign.
You remember that time she said you weren’t wholly inept.

You shut your eyes and screamed about her, witless half travesties.
She was thin and gratuitous in all the wrong places.
Yeah! Settle down Francis, you don’t have to listen anymore.
Settle down Francis, you should have turned around and walked out the door.

Seeing her was like a stumbo metal pastiche of a David Bowie flick.
She left you with her bad taste in your mouth.
You can’t believe she was so trite. You could’ve done her all night.
But you know, she was just a pointless dead end.

You went along for the ride but it, turned into a joke.
A naughty outlaw on a plastic pony.
So settle down Francis, you don’t have to listen anymore.
Settle down Francis, should have turned around and walked out the door.

Gratuitous howls and moans.....


Settle down Francis, you don’t have to listen anymore.
Settle down Francis, should have turned around and walked out the door.

So settle down Francis, No No No don’t write no more.
Settle down Francis, should have turned around and walked out the door.
