  • A Perfect Circle – By And Down The River lyrics

    Moving in and out of the shadow
    It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you

    Showing only bits and pieces
    ‘Til the light betray you and your empty allocution

    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility
    Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility

    Searching your eyes for a hint or trace of it
    Searching your eyes for humility
    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace
    I’m still searching, searching

    Showing only bits and pieces
    ‘Til the tide betrays you and your empty allocution
    Float the Piper by and down the river
    Carcass crippled underneath the pounding waves of adoration

    Pied Piper, float on down the river
    Bloated carcass crippled me, the weight of adoration
    Moving in and out of the shadow
    It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you


  • Lux Occulta – Pied Piper letras

    Beautiful and wealthy is our town of Hamelin
    Neighbors are green with envy, proud my fellow citizens
    Our stomach’s are full, our dreams are calm
    We can either kill or buy all that comes our way

    Please your honors – said he – I’m able
    By means of a secret charm, to draw
    All creatures living beneath the sun
    That creep or swim or fly or run
    After me so as you never saw!
    And I chiefly use my charm
    On creatures that do people harm
    The mole and toad and newt and viper
    And people call me the pied piper

    But there’s this small embarrassing thing
    Filthy, disgusting, stinking rats
    They don’t belong here
    They don’t match
    Did almighty lord create the scum?

    You can have your perfect world
    But you will have to pay the price

    ‘Cause there’s the small, embarrassing thing
    Filthy, disgusting, stinking us
    We don’t belong here
    We don’t match
    Your father in heavens didn’t create us

    Pay your bills fellow citizens
    Or we will take your children with us
    It’s not about hatred, we’re not your enemies
    But you see, we have to feed the rats

    And you will never learn
    Who’s the hunter and who’s prey in this game
    And you will never learn
    Who is Pied Piper and who’s rat in the end
    And you will never learn
    Who is the leader and who’s been lead
