Lisa Germano From A Shell

This Mortal Coil - Song to the Siren "Cocteau Twins"


Past the Edge of Falling

...and when the edge came
Little did I know the old me would die
The entire future a bleak re-arrange
How can one love and not know all detail
Until the miserable day comes and
You are told that you have failed
So eager the world comes to cut you down
Although they do the same with a sound
I thought I might have a life of which to speak
Society creates monsters that it does not love to keep
Oh the pain I have reaped

Each new face a play on the olden game
Wondering at their holding hands
Is to be alone to live in shame
How could I live up to the worlds demands
A single weed cut down by the sickle of life
Who knew in the hearts of others that wicked heartless strife
For none is perfect, and, they will remind you

That face, that moment, I thought we were complete
A similarity without deep questions of which to meet
Our minds a unison speaking of music and art
Your mouth in motion, your words a dart
And your Mother hated me so
For money I did not have, the coldest blow

Watching the new stars in a place
Of which I was one to admire
Never and nothing more
The world cuts me off from desire
Funny to be human only to be treated
As an animal

Past the Edge of Falling
Truth of hardship always calling
I seek the darkness of humans mauling
All the purity I had now gone
Who knows the Mariner's song?

Oh my false love, you did seek and find destruction
Oh my false love, you did find oblivion
Oh my false love, you are Past the Edge of falling

I pray your Death makes you suffereth not.

Ra, Ra, Ra, Ha ha, ha ha, ha

This is the End, but let's Repeat

Ra, Ra, Ra, Ha ha, ha ha, ha
Kiss my coo-say, sing la la la la
All the information you need right now
Don't ask me when but show me how

I say these things to remind you of the awful state of your repressed satisfaction.
This can show you what you are made of.

Release -when will you get what you need.
Release -become the desire upon which you feed.

Come this way, I will release you.

Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need before it's gone
Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need  before it's wrong

Jack in plug up, pay to play
I'm a celibate whore, have it your way
Go ahead slam your face in the door
A roman audience screams more more more

Ra, Ra, Ra, Ha ha, ha ha, ha
Kiss my coo-say, sing la la la la
All the lies you need right now
Don't say shit, just bow down

I say these things to remind you of the awful state of your repressed satisfaction.
This can show you what you are made of.

Release -when will you get what you need.
Release -become the desire upon which you feed.

Come this way, I will release you.

Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need before it's gone
Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need  before it's wrong

Turn off, tune out, and drop out
Take your clothes and and get the fuck out
Love you long time, 15 minutes for two
Throw in the brunette and blond bitch too

Ra, Ra, Ra, Ha ha, ha ha, ha
Kiss my coo-say, sing la la la la
All the product you need right now
Don't love it, just go down

I say these things to remind you of the awful state of your repressed satisfaction.
This can show you what you are made of.

Release -when will you get what you need.
Release -become the desire upon which you feed.

Come this way, I will release you.

Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need before it's gone
Want something, we all need something
Tell me what you need  before it's wrong

Watch me break it off, in your love'n
So hot in here, you feel like an oven
When the moment has come and gone
Move karaoke lips to my song

Ra, Ra, Ra, Ha ha, ha ha, ha
Kiss my coo-say, sing la la la la
All the information you need right now
Don't ask me when but show me how

I say these things to remind you of the awful state of your repressed satisfaction.
This can show you what you are made of.

Release -when will you get what you need.
Release -become the desire upon which you feed.

Come this way, I will release you.



This is the End, but let's Repeat
