lyrics

She misses the mark, sweetly, saying,
"Silver or sulfur, it's the same thing. I know how to kill."

She slips off her clothes and hands them to the nearest unsuspecting gentlemen. "With this, do what you will."

"You shouldn't trust me, but I know you will. I'll show you my skin so you'll think it's real. I've got to keep secrets to keep us safe."

She misses the mark, completely, saying, "Don't think I didn't strike out deliberately. I know very well how to kill."

"I am fire. I am fire. I am the handle, I am the blade, I am not safe.
I am the siren calling your name, better unclaimed."

She buries the dark, so deeply. Smiling so you'd think it was easy.
"Oh, but it is"

She gathers her thoughts, and sells them to her nearest and dearest fellow countrymen.
"Enjoy the thrill."

You think it's a match? Well, you're not far wrong.
She'd call it an act, but she's too far gone.

She misses the mark, neatly, saying, "Silver or sulfur, it's the same to me, though I know how to tell."

She cuts off her feet and sells them to the most disbelieving of jurymen.
"Use these to get to hell."

"You shouldn't trust me, but I know you will. I'll strip off my skin so you know what's real. I'm better off burning to keep us safe."

"I am fire. I am fire. I am the headlights, I am the flame, I am not safe.
I am the serpent, I am the snake, I cannot be chained.
I am the handle, I am the blade, I am not safe.
I am the siren calling your name, better unclaimed."

about

April Fish Wellington, New Zealand

Stories are variations of truths. Stories are made up.
Stories are honest lies.

Stories become songs, and songs are poems cloaked in sound.
This is art.
Art is in the eye of the beholder.

∴ April Fish are artistic liars. The cheeky blighters.
