Jim Morrison is Alive. "This E.P sets it straight, lyrics that flow with incredible unique magick of her pink throne. The book of shadows weave in life's burns and pain, with an amazing vocals to back it up. Each track tells a different story, having its own flare and genre.

'One in a million' will leave you speechless of the sorrows of letting love go.. and the ache it provides. Witching Hour music is a fabulous mix of great things to come.." Favorite track: Hell Hath No Fury Like.

Lyrics: [Verse 1] She’s back A paradigm shift Lifted the veil To my one and only Legs free I was stuck in slow motion My colour was fading Mm, mm I’d go tiptoe With bated breath It shows I hadn’t let go yet Mm, mm [Pre-chorus] Casting spells, recast the part Now I’m finally friends with the dark I’m bathin’ in it My heart restarts My heart restarts [Chorus] I take myself to the cinema Do my hair, not leave the house Oh-oh Cat’s purring and I rest Doe eyes been hunting too long But I’ve lost my appetite It don’t taste right On my tongue I am my best yet [Verse 2] Thought I stood strong Kept falling in Felt safe in the water So I learned to swim I’m a rainbow Technicolor baby I’d see what I wanted to see Mm, mm, mm I’ll close my eyes ’Til they get pried open Pulling stitches out ‘Cause I was never broken Mm, mm [Pre-chorus] No more eggshells Blowing out the spark Now I’m finally friends with the dark I’m bathin’ in it My heart restarts My heart restarts [Chorus] I take myself to the cinema Do my hair, not leave the house Oh-oh Cat’s purring and I rest Doe eyes been hunting too long But I’ve lost my appetite It don’t taste right On my tongue I am my best yet [Bridge] Not a fool for love I’m a sucker for alone time I’m the queen of wands And now the world is mine Not a fool for love I’m a sucker for alone time I’m the queen of wands And now the world Is Mine [Breakdown] (Aahs) [Chorus] I take myself to the cinema Do my hair, not leave the house Oh-oh Cat’s purring and I rest Doe eyes been hunting too long But I’ve lost my appetite It don’t taste right On my tongue I am my best I take myself to the cinema Do my hair, not leave the house Oh-oh Cat’s purring and I rest Doe eyes been hunting too long But I’ve lost my appetite It don’t taste right On my tongue I am my best yet [Outro] Not a fool for love I’m a sucker for alone time I’m the queen of wands And now the world is mine Not a fool for love I’m a sucker for alone time I’m the queen of wands And now the world Is Mine

Comedown 04:35
Lyrics: [Verse 1] How heartbreaking To watch something How heartbreaking How heartbreaking To watch something How heartbreaking To watch something so beautiful slowly die To love you so much only to learn You were a different type of guy And I never thought I would come down It was such a compelling high [Chorus] (Ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) So I left ya purgin’ at the sink (Ah-ah-ah) Don’t you love what we could have? (ah-ah) It’s time to wave my white one to your red flags (ah-ah) Gotta wave my white one to your red fla- red flags (ah-ah) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink, another drink (ah-ah) [Verse 2] Shone the spotlight Gave ya stage fright Tongue-tied Snake bite One bad day become more What am I workin’ so hard for? I can’t hold you upright anymore How can you sit and just let life pass you by? I’m left feelin’ robbed, betrayed You took it all away ‘Cause you just don’t like to try And I never thought I would come down It was such a compelling high [Chorus] (Ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Am I your lover or your shrink? (Ah-ah-ah) Don’t you love what we could have? (ah-ah) It’s time to wave my white one to your red flags (ah-ah) Gotta wave my white one to your red fla- red flags (ah-ah) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink, another drink (ah-ah) [Bridge] If you can’t pick yourself up from the floor There’s nothing left to adore There’s nothing left to adore If you can’t pick yourself up from the floor Up from the floor There’s nothing left to adore There’s nothing left to adore If you can’t pick yourself up from the If you can’t pick yourself up from the floor There’s nothing left to adore There’s nothing left to adore If you can’t pick yourself up from the floor Pick yourself up from the floor There’s nothing left to adore If you can’t pick yourself up from the Floor, floor How heartbreaking To watch something How heartbreaking [Chorus] (Ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (I’d bend backwards) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (and overthink) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (and still you’d take) (ah-ah) (Another drink) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (I’d bend backwards) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (and overthink) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (and still you’d take) (ah-ah) And now it’s over faster than you can blink (Another drink) (Ah-ah-ah) Don’t you love us? Don’t you love what we could have? (Don’t you love) (ah-ah) It’s time to wave my white one to your red flags (what we could have?) (ah-ah) Gotta wave my white one to your red flags (we could have) (ah-ah) (Ah-ah-ah) I’d bend backwards and overthink (Don’t you love) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink (what we could have?) (ah-ah) Still you’d take another drink, another drink (ah-ah) [Outro] I’d bend backwards And overthink And still you’d take Another drink I’d bend backwards And overthink And still you’d take Another drink

Lyrics: [Verse 1] Can’t keep staring into the sun If I can’t go outside anymore Can’t keep my back turned To the black burned Into the tar What’s hidden underneath the sabotage? What will I birth if I marry my halves? My power’s rooted in her wrath But hell hath no fear Like what fuels me No fear [Pre-chorus] I’m the creator I’m the one that made her My arcane twin flame A heavy-headed temptress She’s fuckin’ relentless We are one and the same She keeps catching up to me And slowing me down Can’t shake her off I keep runnin’ around She is my downfall and my saving grace She is the nighttime without a face [Chorus] As above, so below Steppin’ into my shadow Wherever I go, she follows But when you knock on wood She’s hollow I’m fire and ice Sugar and spice I’m pleasure and pain The kitty and the mice It’s a roll of the dice For virtue or vice Think you’ve seen me once? Well now you’ve seen me twice [Post-chorus] (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah) Sun and moon they do agree (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah) Equinox inside of me [Verse 2] Locked up inside together Searched far and wide Nowhere to hide God knows I tried to get her Nowhere to hide There’s so much to see here in the dark And yet she’s so tense My captive audience I just wanna show her what’s beneath her heart [Pre-chorus] I’ll be whole A friendly foe Full of rage Sittin’ below The pitch black reflection She don’t wanna know ‘Cause yeah I’m the monster under her bed (I am whole, I am love) I’m fed on existential dread (I am peace, I am above) I’m the salt that drips down her eyelashes She’s the phoenix I’m the ashes [Chorus] As above, so below I welcome her into the shadows Wherever she goes, I follow But when you knock on wood She’s hollow I’m fire and ice Sugar and spice I’m pleasure and pain The kitty and the mice It’s a roll of the dice For virtue or vice Think you’ve seen me once? Well now you’ve seen me twice [Post-chorus] Sun and moon they do agree (ah) (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah) Equinox inside of me (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah) Sun and moon they do agree (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah) Equinox inside of me [Outro] Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some aren’t hard enough Some habits are hard to make Some aren’t hard enough to break Some habits are hard to make Some aren’t hard enough

Lyrics: [Verse 1] Creepin’ quiet, dagger eyes You get high So you don’t have to look me in the (eye) I see Underneath You’re speaking heat through your teeth But all I hear is *scream* Throwing stars into the wall Silence saves you from it all, oh Did I hurt you baby? Little cries, gettin’ mine You don’t like us whispering without ya Do ya Do ya [Chorus] Hell hath no fury like me If you never learn I’ll let you burn Thought you had seen through me Made of love But I draw blood Ooh, don’t say a word Don’t say a word Ooh, don’t say a word Don’t say a word [Verse 2] Rage bubblin’ Toilin’, troublin’ Keep ya safe, keep you warm Muffled rumble, perfect Storm’s brewin’ You’re sittin’ stewing Like we’re doin’ it to ya Fire type, set alight Perfect Petty crime, got us doin’ time Perfect Sun in eyes Perfect [Chorus] Hell hath no fury like me If you never learn I’ll let you burn Thought you had seen through me Made of love But I draw blood Ooh, don’t say a word Don’t say a word Ooh, don’t say a word Don’t say a word [Bridge] Not your dolls to pose Not yours to impose on, mm Not your dolls to pose Not yours to impose on So don’t say it out loud Temper tantrum Hissy fit Can’t have your way Want none of it Whoa, whoa, whoa Not your dolls to pose Not yours to impose on Ah, ah-ah [Chorus] Hell hath (ah-ah) no fury like me (ah-ah) If you never learn I’ll let you burn (ah-ah-ah) Thought you had (ah-ah) seen through me (ah-ah) Made of love But I draw blood (ah-ah-ah) Ooh, (ah-ah) don’t say a word (ah-ah) Don’t say a word (ah-ah-ah) Ooh, (ah-ah) don’t say a word (ah-ah) Don’t say a word [Outro] Hell hath no fury like

Colourblind 03:07
Lyrics: [Verse 1] White as a ghost Left me on read Send an amber alert Yellow belly just fled Made you pinky promise Yeah ya blew a kiss to last Then you laid me out in lavender For greener grass [Chorus] You say it’s a-ok That there’s no rational reason For me to feel this way Yeah you say it’s a-ok You say it’s a-ok And that it’s all in my head As you slither away Yeah you say it’s a-ok [Verse 2] Alright I only see things in black and white Lies I’ve been told Grey clouds have no silver lining In a heart of fool’s gold I put on my tinted glasses Saw my rose-coloured boy But you’re colourblind baby Don’t you see what I am? Not your toy [Chorus] You say it’s a-ok That there’s no rational reason For me to feel this way Yeah you say it’s a-ok You say it’s a-ok And that it’s all in my head As you slither away Yeah you say it’s a-ok [Outro] You get no goodbyes When there’s no good guys Got no dry eyes ‘Cause there’s no good lies You get no goodbyes When there’s no good guys Got no dry eyes ‘Cause there’s no good lies You get no goodbyes When there’s no good guys Got no dry eyes ‘Cause there’s no good lies

Nice Guy 03:11
Lyrics: [Verse 1] *Inhale, exhale* Practice what you preach Is that something you teach? Can I check your qualification? A delicate self esteem Pinned on equality That you get to be the king of But did you know That no means no? And that a nice guy with frustration Still needs an invitation It’s a dangerous game if we can’t criticise The critic himself Without fear and lies It’s a knock off disguise You’re just one of the guys You’re just one of the guys [Refrain] Ah, ah, ah, ah Ah, ah, ah, ah-oh-ooh (you’re just one of the guys) Ah, ah, ah, ah-oh-ooh Ah, ah, ah, ah (you’re just- guy) [Breakdown] If I scream the ice breaks But if I stand it shatters I hear ya creepin’ to me I hear your pitter your patter Your eyes are seedy and you’re needy Whisperin’ close All they can hear is the TV Say I’m sugar and spice And yeah you play it nice So if I’m squirmin’ Nobody will think I’m wise enough To know it or show it Shiverin’ in my skin A fragile image curated You hated To be called anything but golden Holdin’ Suspicions inside Because you never made me cry And if I told anyone They’d say I’m fine and I Lie Dread keeps a finger over my mouth Drippin’ in doubt Tellin’ myself it wasn’t bad enough to Him I was at fault He exalts ya Yeah I’m sugar and spice [Refrain] Ah, ah, ah, ah Ah, ah, ah, ah-oh (You’re just one of the guys) [Outro] But did you know That no means no? And that a nice guy with frustration Still needs an invitation

Lyrics: [Verse 1] I’m sorry, I love you I really love you But I have to stop you right there And pretend you were never really here Disparity between the body and mind My body and I Fighting on opposite sides Opposite sides My feet are walkin’ me to you But my head is lookin’ around Gotta grab my feet And keep them firm on the ground [Refrain] Perhaps you understand, you always knew your path Or perhaps you’ve been betrayed By who you thought you could trust Your creator, your destroyer I don’t deserve to grieve Workin’ against myself In the name of autonomy The safest place that you could be But I let them rip you out of me The safest place that you could be But I let them rip you out of me Ooh-oh Ooh-oh Ooh-oh, oh, oh [Verse 2] I wish I could enter A rift in Space and time And tell you that I love you And you’ll always be mine I’d tell you I’m sorry That I kept you from my world But there’s no turning back I’ve pulled us apart I guess now I walk forward With this hole in my heart [Verse 3] How can what’s right feel so damn wrong? I think I really knew deep down all along And now I ache, I ache for you But what the hell was I supposed to do? I guess you’ll be here when the time is right But I’d be wrong to think it’d be you again then One in a million, one in four hundred trillion Never to be seen again [Bridge] I’m sorry I never saw your eyes Or let you sleep with me at night I’m sorry I never brushed your hair And that I let them take you out of there I’m sorry I never got to see your smile I know it would have been so worthwhile [Outro] But if you love something You let it go Even if it’s only My head that knows Am I selfish or clever? Was it now or never? Did I kill? Did I preserve? I know I’m sore But did you hurt? Do you know? Can you hear? Were you ever really here? Do you know? Can you hear? Were you ever really here? *Inhale, exhale*
