[collector's edition digipack / mini-LP vinyl track]

- Live To Tell The Tale *

A single grain can tip the scale
Amidst the burden the scale will prevail
Showing what’s worth being here
Storyteller by a hearth of stone
A white little creature purring me
My childhood kingdom gone in time
The islands filling my mind with blue
The one in special, heaven’s court

All the joy unforgiven by this task

An errant soul, homeless and foul
All gone but the will to
Live to tell the tale

The days are filled with anxiety
Frustration, one right note a day
Where to find a perfect tune
Just do the work and take a step back

All the joy unforgiven by this task

An errant soul, homeless and foul
All gone but the will to
Live to tell the tale

Dark chambers of my mind
Locked around the neck of my love
None of you understand
And it doesn’t matter
To a broken marionette like me (me)

An errant soul, homeless and foul
An errant soul, homeless and foul
All gone but the will to
Live to tell the, to tell the tale

* Bonus Track (On "Once")
