i might find myself finding myself down the road i might catch myself off guard when the (black screen on the phone) (shadow on the wall) shows a person staring back that i don’t recognize we don’t have to say that we know what’s next for us what we said before didn’t matter all that much when it came down to it the path was already there there’s a chance that one day we’ll wake up and the sun will shine on us from a new direction the earth will spin back the way it came everything will be the same except for everything but you and i we’ll still be here time just marches on people come and people go new faces arrive but i always miss the old ones who knew me before i knew me i guess i’m marching on but when i see mom and dad i catch myself cause they don’t quite match the image i remember always remembering there’s a chance that one day we’ll wake up and the sun will shine on us from a new direction the earth will spin back the way it came everything will be the same except for everything but you and i we’ll still be here i might not look like i stand a chance against time but i see so clearly that though the days are long our love is sweet and it is strong there’s a chance that one day we’ll wake up and the sun will shine on us from a new direction the earth will spin back the way it came everything will be the same except for everything but you and i we’ll still be here

Many were lost in the years before But tonight, of the many, we think of just four Present, always, and forever adored In a statue, a necklace, a book, and a sword. The house of sugar and stone will collapse if unattended Will you watch the towers crumble, brother, has your reign yet ended? In the shadow of our statues, ensure our legacy lingers We did not die for you to blink and just forget your sisters ROCOCOA: A fight burns quietly, below the brim Dip your foot in too far and you’ll have to swim Riddled with guilt in the small of your back Yet something maintains that keeps you on track Push forward, push harder, let nothing betray Don't stumble, don't falter, and don't lose your way Death did not want to leave me behind Now I chase the blood that dared to spill mine LAZULI: There are things to learn, beyond words and resolve Things books will not teach you, things deep in your soul Things far in the future that will haunt your dreams The world in the hands of a failing regime You grasp it already, at what heavy price You speak its tongue from your prison of ice Loyalty, it seems, is hard to find Choose wisely for whom you’d fight or die. ROCOCOA and LAZULI: The house of sugar and stone will collapse if unattended Will you watch the towers crumble, brother, has your reign yet ended? In the shadow of our statues, grab your sword and swing till it blisters If you won’t wear the crown yourself, at least avenge your sisters CITRINA: In the darkest seconds when time escapes Where rage and fear intoxicate Where no one knows and no one cares There’s someone’s whispered prayer A sacred light or a circle of stones If it brings you joy, if it feels like home The only true law is what’s inside When vines and rot subside. SAPPHRIA: Sweet as a gumdrop and sharp as a tack Watch and listen and wait for the crack Persist in the system be a thorn in their side Pull the words from their mouths and escape with your life Your whispers are vicious and cut like twin swords Don’t think you’ve won yet, delay the rewards Give a gift to your kin of your knowledge and truth And show everyone you got what they gave you. CITRINA and SAPPHRIA: The house of sugar and stone will collapse if unattended Will you watch the towers crumble, brother, has your reign yet ended? In the shadow of our statues, let the dark carry our whispers Our voices aren’t lost to time, so heed the words of your sisters ROCOCOA: I died with my eyes wide open Fingers still clutching my weapon LAZULI: I died with the future flooding my mind The darkness ahead turning me blind CITRINA: I died with light still a beacon Held in the heart I felt weaken SAPPHRIA: I died with secrets under my tongue With my spirit broken and my lies undone ALL: I died with my eyes wide open I died with the future flooding my mind I died with light still a beacon I died with secrets under my tongue We died with our mistakes unlearn-ed We died with our futures deserted We died with our legacies shaken We died with our throne untaken ALL: But we did not die to be forgotten We did not die to just disappear So hang on and really listen You must succeed, o brother dear You must not let our kingdom go to waste Rid the rot that left the throne disgraced Death hath given no rest, revenge is all we have left So take it! before we fade away The house of sugar and stone won’t corrode when it’s defended Even as our banners burn down, (brother) your reign has not yet ended In the shadow of our statues, let the dawn rise brighter Don't let your sorrow swallow you, you’re not alone. You have your sisters. You’ve heard our wisdom, you’ve heard our mistakes Remember them now, whatever it takes Fight wisely, love deeply, feel strongly, be true Cherish those that you may come home to

Keep Sharp 04:02
So you have the world ahead of you Everything you please To sail the coming storm And never once fall to your knees But the sea is more than waves There’s barren cliffs and there are snakes Who’ll throw you from the ramparts And take and take and take Keep sharp Fly it on your banner Keep sharp In all of your manners And when the court tries to trick you And steals all you have from your palm Keep sharp What good is staying calm? So the crown that stands before you Is modest nickel now and yet Despite the lands so full of it It is not an easy get There’s a catch when you’re a royal Produce an heir and stay in line Don’t dream of days on distant shoals And you’ll turn out just fine Keep sharp Fly it on your banner Keep sharp In all of your manners And when the court tries to trick you And steals all you have from your palm Keep sharp When everything goes wrong Some men are soft and made of brie, Because they can afford to be Some have armour that they wear To keep them safe Some charge right into battle Knowing well that if they die The court will stand to test And sing their praise And what of girls with simple asks? Or the duchess made of glass? Just ladies in waiting For men not brought to task Well I don’t think that’s very fair And I'm sick of courts who never cared So you can take your fucking crown And shove it up your– Keep sharp Fly it on your banner Keep sharp In all of your manners And when the whole world stands before you And you crush all your foes in your palm Keep sharp Keep sharp Keep Sharp My girl, it won't be long!

A coiled rope of jet, a sprinkle of deep blue They follow me, reminding me of what I failed to do The wonder of a squire, never ceasing, never lost Under bludgeonings of loss, the squire’s cost The coldness sets in deep, the aching and the sacrifice A stalemate in the throes of darkness, chilling shattered ice Protector of a family, protector of a name Protector of a world gone up in flame But the war’s never won, By the light of the sun, yeah the war’s never won For the heroes See them glimmer in your sword, reflecting those it failed to save In your shield, the face of misery pervades A gentle hand of shattered rock, clinging tightly, striking true In the end it all just feels so Black and Blue The gingerness of trust, a peek into their lives All gone within a second in the shadow of a knife A call into the ancients, a whisper in the storm Someone who can lead us home But the war’s never won, By the light of the sun, yeah the war’s never won For the heroes See them glimmer in your sword, reflecting those it failed to save In your shield, the face of misery pervades A gentle hand of shattered rock, clinging tightly, striking true In the end it all just feels so Black and Blue Heart heavy with my mistakes, I’ll be a shield over a blade Keep my eyes alert and sharp, For all those nights drowned in the dark I might never change the past, but I’ll fight for what’s been lost In the shadows of the fallen, I’ll find the strength to stand at all Can’t you hear them through the aching? See them glimmer in my sword, reflecting those I failed to save In my shield, the face of misery pervades A gentle hand of shattered rock, clinging tightly, striking true In the end it all just feels so Black and Blue

Bitterness 03:26
Children grow up fast when they have To watch each other die I used to dream of flying but I'm not The one in the sky now All my prayers are wasted All my memories are haunted Bitter, bitter, bitterness I have found no strength in sweetness Bitter, bitter, bitterness My revenge will never let you rest I'm possessed, I'm obsessed Her shadow goes through my fingers And my hands stay aching, empty The light might have left the locket But it still burns in me, angry [Pre-chorus & chorus] Bitter, bitter, bitterness Bitter, bitter, bitterness Bitter, bitter, bitter, bitter Bitter, bitter, bitterness Bitter, bitter, bitterness Will vengeance heal the pain in my chest? Bitter, bitter, bitterness Oh, let me find the strength in sweetness I'm possessed, I'm obsessed

Seed guy war guy rotting on the inside seed guy war guy blooming with no light Seed guy war guy Sad from all the goodbyes Need not to cry His enemies will die Rolling hills and roiling seas With a bloodlust to appease Stalks the earth, he’s all alone He has no sins to atone What is death but end of life What is love but chance for strife Ignorance is surely bliss Knowledge causes you remiss~ Remiss~ Darker than darkness Hidden in the night Hungry now heartless Ready for the fight Seed guy war guy rotting on the inside seed guy war guy blooming with no light Seed guy war guy Sad from all the goodbyes Need not to cry His enemies will die Honeyed words and poisoned blades Blinding light of bulb pervades With a sickly sweetened crunch To the end, life seems to rush Rage ignited with a spark Born of fury: Hunter’s Mark Once a seedling now in gloom Sending foes straight to their doom~ Their doom~ Darker than darkness Hidden in the night Hungry now heartless Ready for the fight Seed guy war guy rotting on the inside seed guy war guy blooming with no light Seed guy war guy Sad from all the goodbyes Need not to cry His enemies will die There’s lives that cannot be saved But they can be avenged Seed guy war guy rotting on the inside seed guy war guy blooming with no light Seed guy war guy Sad from all the goodbyes Need not to cry His enemies will die (overlapping) Oh little witch boy what will you do? Your friends and your allies all dead or untrue Oh little witch boy who can you trust? One hand on your trigger and turn em to dust Oh little witch boy what will you do? Your friends and your allies all dead or untrue Oh little witch boy who can you trust? One hand on your trigger and turn em to dust

I have no strength left Nothing left to spend Just this newfound rift And pain that never ends I miss your bright smile Licorice on your breath Filled with conviction and guile Now the nothing of death Oh, why did I run? Cowardice filled my blood But with the morning sun Your shadow lingers on You follow my every move Ever-present, ever-gone Consumed with a bright gloom Oh, how do I move on? You were the one I could count on I have nothing to fall back on You were the yin to my yang, the sun to my moon I hope we can reunite soon Your jet black shadow haunts me wherever I go Lost in half of a memory that’s trapped me Somewhere in between the dead and the living I can’t keep giving and giving I will find your ghost, your jet black shadow Chorus (overlapping): I’m still here In your footsteps I’m with you As you fly Look inside for my ghost Jet black shadow Circumstances are stark And tears have choked my eyes You’re stuck in the dark And only seen by light You won’t be replaced No matter how hard they try You step with me in this space And exist in my mind You were the one I could count on I have nothing to fall back on You were the yin to my yang, the sun to my moon I hope we can reunite soon (Run away) Invisible and afraid, I (Run away) Blood runs thicker than water, yet she (Fades away) Hold fast to the locket’s glow yet it’s light (Fades away) And the flame flickers out And my heart breaks Your jet black shadow haunts me wherever I go Lost in half of a memory that’s trapped me somewhere in between The dead and the living. I can’t keep giving and giving I will find your ghost, your jet black shadow My jet black shadow Chorus (overlapping): I’m still here In your footsteps I’m with you As you fly Look inside for my ghost Jet black shadow Jet black shadow
9.
Deep in the drink, below the ships There’s a wisp of something there With a staff like the branch of an ancient tree And cotton candy hair Out at sea, far from the port There’s a monk of the Spinning Star Who rose from the dead with a glint in his eye And left foes with a fatal scar If you stood on those ships that night, you did not live to tell the tale. In a circle of stones at the top of a hill There’s a long forgotten man His body is hardened from years of war But he’s finally returned to his clan Before the spirit stands a powerful form In a puff of sugary smoke Magic surrounds him and lifts him to rise A hungry soul invoked If you had angered the man or the sprite, you did not live to tell the tale. Out in the thick grass that circles the castle There’s someone waiting close Invisible to you and the birds and the men Inhaling death through his nose Flying through bushes, past haystacks and light A bespectacled blue mage beside him He moves like a shadow, a dusting of night With a troupe of killers behind him If you had scoffed at the soldier’s might, you did not live to tell the tale. Among the chaos, above the war Perched high on a staff of cloud Remembering promises, oaths that he swore His skill with magic endowed The creation, the construct, outlined in mist He leaps over swords and walls An eye at his throat, a symbol, a risk Someone to hear his calls If you were not on his side of the fight, you did not live If you were nipped by his cool frosted bite, you did not live If you did not cower at the fearsome sight, you did not live to tell the tale. You did not live to tell the tale.

Lay your trinkets at my feet, search for omens in the sky Pray to me while you choke and cheat, there's nothing in your lies Look to me in times of darkness, breathe the sweet decay And as the kingdom topples down, the crown will still remain. The strength inside is fickle, the days press ever on, But one day you will search inside, and find that none are gone. The syrup drips, thick and proud, onto the castle floors The sickly stench of sugarplum will stain forevermore. That stench, it lingers That stench, it grows Just lick your fingers And let the stench go. The growling of hunger, the light of the sun, all fall to their knees at the stench of Sugarplum. Lay your acolyte to rest, let him serve my final wish. Send your allies to protect, I will lead them to bliss. Desert your sisters and your daughters, keep them safe and warm and proud. They will find the calm water, without a shadow of a doubt That stench, it lingers That stench, it grows Just lick your fingers And let the stench go. The growling of hunger, the light of the sun, all fall to their knees at the stench of Sugarplum. Where the nights are their coldest And the moon’s long disappeared In this world where nothing matters There’s no promise I’ll be here My name’s never meant salvation My name’s never been invoked I’m for trickery and adulation Not the hero you had hoped That stench, it lingers That stench, it grows Just lick your fingers And let the stench go. The growling of hunger, the light of the sun, all fall to their knees at the stench of Sugarplum.

Angel Cake 03:47
This royal icing feels ironic on my head My face turns sickly sweet, the sugar in each lie I tell Don't drop the smile, keep up the act Don't let the pieces fall, every Rock must one day crack Angel cake, sweet and bitter Angel cake, a pinch of salt, a taste of murder Little boy king, think you're good enough? Oh well, here falls your head, you simply couldn't call my bluff Could you not see the blood on my blade? Didn't they teach you you can hide poison in a friend? [CHORUS] My heart is turning, my head heavy It has yet to wear a crown but I know it will set me free I was born hungry and I don't know guilt I know the world should be mine, the throne is where I'm meant to sit [CHORUS] I would love a taste of power I will have a taste of power I will have my taste of power I will have my taste of power I will, I will have, I will, I will have I will, I will have, I will, I will have

(Caramelinda) There was a time when I was young, brave, and beautiful Promised to one who had eyes for the end (Lazuli) aaa (Caramelinda) Hand on my waist felt like spinning in starlight Like something to which you’d attend There was a time when I was young, brave and beautiful (Caramelinda) You read the stars like the palm of my hand (Lazuli) don’t worry darling (Caramelinda) Time could betray me, just business as usual To you, twas part of the plan And I’m alone again, alone again (Lazuli) I am sorry for leaving you (Caramelinda) Left scratched and sour to remember you (Lazuli) There was nothing else I could do (Caramelinda) I’m alone again, alone again (Lazuli) I am sorry for leaving you (Caramelinda) Alone cuz you left me too soon (Lazuli) If you were me you would do it too (Amanda) May I have this dance? (Caramelinda) You made me feel like my heart was on fire Even when he made me colder than ice And your virtue is something to admire Though for me you’re more of a vice (Amanda) What am I going to do with you? (Caramelinda) I have my throne and you have your station (Amanda) Out of view (Caramelinda) Secrets don’t show off their face in the light During the day do our parts for the nation (Amanda) I love you- (Caramelinda) And beckon to you in the night And I’m alone again, alone again (Amanda) alone again, alone again (Caramelinda) You are not my choice to choose (Amanda) You are not my choice to choose (Caramelinda) Alone again, alone again Together: so we return to our truths I can’t lose them, too (Jet) I’m still-- (Caramelinda) Bright like the magic that makes you a danger Like them to you, those who bake in their bluff once, I was like you, young, selfish, don’t blame her- but didn’t I teach you enough? You two are cunning, and sharp like a dagger Though that won’t stop water, no, that won’t stop mold What were you thinking, impulsive, you stagger And I’m left without you to hold (Caramelinda) And I’m alone again, alone again (Ruby) all my prayers are wasted (Jet) Tell Ruby I love her) (Caramelinda) A mother’s love is her last Alone again, alone again (Ruby) All my memories haunted (Jet) And tell her she did the right thing) (Caramelinda:)And you’re growing too fast And I’m alone again, alone again (Ruby and Caramelinda): And I’m alone again, alone again And I’m alone (Ruby) Bitter- bitter- bitterness, bitter- bitter- bitterness, bitter- bitter- bitterness (Caramelinda) Alone again, alone again, alone again, alone again (x3) alone again, alone again- And you’re gone.

Chocolate 02:59
sweet, sweet release looking into the light i can finally see it was only ever you and me it was us against the world til the world began to cave i had always been hollow but your love filled that space now a bitterness sets in and though it stings all the same underneath it all i feel your heart inside me like chocolate in my veins envy once held its green hand to my neck but you put yourself in the way now it’s my turn to try to be brave it was us against the world til the world began to cave i had always been hollow but your love filled that space now a bitterness sets in and though it stings all the same underneath it all i feel your heart inside me like chocolate in my veins rain falls down dissolves the town and purple light breaks through the crowd your voice is lost through all the sound but as you run i see the crown it was us against the world til the world began to cave i had always been hollow but your love filled that space now a bitterness sets in and though it stings all the same underneath it all i feel your heart inside me like chocolate in my veins
14.
i was small back then but they looked at me like i would do them all in made me think that i was the monster i could see inside their eyes but it turns out that the evil staring back at me was not mine to bear what they hurt me for was simply what scared them the most inside their own bones covered in mold so my heart grew cold til the whole world had come to know i could not be burned by their endless lies there’s no power their words but it turns out that the evil staring back at me was not mine to bear what they hurt me for was simply what scared them the most inside their own bones covered in mold they tried their best to make me feel unloved now the fire’s all that fills me up the way they stare no longer stings although the memories they bring are ones i’ve tried to leave behind turns out that the evil staring back at me is not mine to bear what they hurt me for is simply what scared them the most inside their own bones covered in mold
15.
Pain shooting sharp between my ribs The knowledge of breathing slipping away The warmth in my chest as I grow cold At least I know one of us will grow old Water dissolves the blood inside my veins Along with the crown that used to bear my name But this is not the end it seems to be You're not getting of rid me that easily I'm still here, in your shadow, your footsteps Despite all this pain there is hope for us yet Yeah I'm still here, right beside you when you fall It's still your hand in mine, no matter how small I'm amongst the ones who came before Who still carried hope through the betrayals and wars In a realm where our memories can live With so much magic, it's like you're with me [CHORUS] And if our dreams are what got me in the end Well at least I had a sword in my hand I used to say I belonged on the battlefield And even if it hurt, I proved I did [Chorus] I'm still here, I'm the light in the locket The blood in your veins that has not been spilled yet Yeah I'm still here, always with you as you fly I'm in each of your smiles, I'm with you in the sky I'm still here
16.
Rest 02:34
And I'll walk into the dark If you promise to hold my hand Keep me in your heart Grief is just love with nowhere to land And I can't help but feel like I'll see you again You can look to the stars and know the brightest is your friend
17.
They gave me a sword, made me a knight Sent me to war and told me to fight And as I stood, last of my kind They showed me a throne, said it was mine I never asked for this I never asked for this And oh, there are no crowns on battlefields No people to rule, only people to kill And oh, I tell myself it's not the war I miss But it's not by my side that my blade should sit I miss the sound, the blood and steel, Feeling alive, I miss the thrill Now as I sit with my memories My sisters' eyes bear down on me [Pre-chorus & chorus] I was never meant to die on a throne i was born to be struck down, by a sword, alone I was never meant to be mourned I was born to be struck down, by a sword, unknown [Chorus] But oh, there have been so many battlefields So many mourned, so many killed And oh, although war has settled in my chest Maybe it's time for my blade to rest
18.
Tastebuds 06:46
Our shadows are stronger than before Free of traitors and enemies once more Four sisters, two twins, now always alone The fallen will rise, encased in stone Blood spilled from a teacup, a seed, a sword The fighting persists but will not be ignored And remember, my brothers, the things we have dreamed The wars we have fought, the way it had seemed The towers we fell from haven’t fallen yet So sing for them, though you may be upset, and know We are the heroes We are the villains We are the ones who fought for youth We push on forward Our numbers thinning But we keep winning through and through You know that the monsters come at night Eyes aflame, and daggers bright With a blessing in our left ear and a curse in our right We’re still alive With our home conquered, we rose to reclaim And stared at the sky, streaked in flame Choices were made, dilemmas resolved A queen was crowned, relations dissolved A wish rang out, to open and grow For a seed had been planted deep below. And remember, my brothers, the things we have dreamed The wars we have fought, the way it had seemed The towers we fell from haven’t fallen yet So fight for them, though you may be upset) We are the heroes We are the villains We are the ones who fought for youth We push on forward Our numbers thinning But we keep winning through and through You know that the monsters feel the fire Glance up to the castle’s spire With a heartbeat in our ribcage and revenge on our minds We’re still alive You know that the story keeps living Time will move on and be forgiving With our swords laid down to rest now and our banners flying high We’re still alive (We’re still alive) We’re still alive (We’re still alive) We’re still alive
