Track Name: Roses Dipped in Black
You bring me roses dipped in black
roses dipped in black
to show me that you know me
and that you’re thinking of me
I never knew another would
admire such dark beauty.

I love the wicked way you laugh
wicked way you laugh
Oh, how it chills me to the bone,
your sultry baritone
Never thought I’d find another mind
as dark as mine.

Sinning with you
is my greatest pleasure
Falling from grace
like a raven’s feather
But as long as I’ve got my darling
Dying doesn’t feel so alarming (x2)

You’re as twisted as I am
twisted as I am.
Delightfully demented,
a soul deeply tormented.
Never have I known
a love as tainted as ours

Show me yours, I’ll show you mine
if you’re down for the crime
Share your evil deeds with me, and
I’m forever yours to keep
Never has there ever been
a love as sweet as sin.

Sinning with you
is my greatest pleasure
Falling from grace
like a raven’s feather
But as long as I’ve got my darling
Dying doesn’t feel so alarming (x2)
Track Name: Neon Blue
I’ve never seen you here before
under the lights,
electric purple beams
I’ve never seen you here before
Is it your first time on the scene?

And I watched you
from the balcony,
dancing with another man
Couldn’t tell if he was company
or maybe just a friend

No, I don’t have the charms
to throw you a pick-up line
I’d much rather write you a valentine
I think you’re pretty,
and I like your moves
Can I buy you a tall glass of neon blue?

I’ve never met someone like you
until tonight,
at the cryptic cabaret
If I don’t make a move now,
then I’ll never know your name

Pulsing sins and harpsichords
fill the rapture in the hall
And the thought one dance with you
tears my petals off the wall

But I don’t have the charms
to throw you a pick-up line
I’d much rather write you a valentine

No, I don’t have the charms
to throw you a pick-up line
I’d much rather write you a valentine:
I think you’re pretty,
and I like your moves
Can I buy you a tall glass of neon blue?
Can I buy you a tall glass of neon blue?
Can I buy you a tall glass of neon blue?
Track Name: Whet My Appetite
Something about you
turns me into a monster
Now all I see is red
So won’t you please just
stay with me a little longer?
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Boy, you whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
You whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
Until I’ve had a bite

Being around you is
everything I never wanted
The danger is too great
Who ever thought one kiss
could leave my body haunted?
Ooh ooh ooh ohh

Boy, you whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
You whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
Until I’ve had a bite

Boy, you whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
You whet my appetite
and I won’t sleep tonight
Not until I’ve had a bite
Not until I’ve had a
Until I’ve had a bite
