Lyrics from "Oddities" (contains songs from the EP "Kiss")



    Oddities The Christmas Song
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    In this world of snow and cold I'll hide
    In this world of ice I've built with pride
    Of all things that I'd most like to receive
    There's just one thing I really want this Christmas Eve

    I believe, I believe it's you

    I know you're out there waiting in the cold
    All shimmering and blue and warm to hold
    And if I try and really do believe
    I'll get just what I'm waiting for this Christmas Eve

    I believe, I believe it's you

    Nothing can compare, nothing can come close to you
    Nothing can compare, nothing else will ever do
    Nothing can compare, nothing can come close to you
    Nothing can compare, nothing else will ever do

    Buried in the snow I'll wait for you
    And keep on wishing till my dream comes true
    I feel your touch, it melts the world away
    We'll be together in the light of Christmas Day
    Far away, far away with you


    Oddities Let Me Break You
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    What on earth went wrong?
    Just tell me what went wrong
    Can't understand just how you feel
    I know the end is near
    But I no longer fear
    That what we had was so unreal

    Why can't you feel it? You had to know
    How could you steal it?
    Let me break you
    Let me break you

    You made it all so mad
    Love or control gone bad
    It seems to me you don't play fair
    I've come to know your kind
    Through innocence then blind
    Believed in something that was never there...

    Why can't you feel it? You had to know
    How could you steal it?
    Let me break you
    Let me break you


    Oddities Shatter (live/remix)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    You're telling me that I'm the most important thing to you
    But can't you see you're killing me with all the things you do?

    And I really want to believe it's impossible, I really want to believe it's all a dream
    But I just can't seem to wake up, I just can't seem to turn on the light
    One step off the edge and the world will seem all right

    You did it again, yes you in the mirror
    You put your faith in a cruel world
    All my dead friends come to haunt, harm and hinder
    Never letting go, here to drag me down to Hell, just say goodbye

    Just answer me, what was the point of all that treachery?
    And soon we'll see the truth behind all of your blasphemy
    And you really want to believe it's impossible, you really want to believe it's all a dream
    But you just can't seem to wake up, you just can't seem to turn on the light
    One step off the edge and the world will seem all right

    No never again I'll never trust no one again
    I'd sooner slit my wrists and risk discovery of Hell
    Than stay another moment here where certain Devils dwell
    No never again I'll never trust no one again
    No never again I'll never trust...

    You did it again, yes you in the mirror
    You put your faith in a cruel world
    All my dead friends come to haunt, harm and hinder
    Never letting go, here to drag me down to Hell, just say goodbye


    Oddities Your Best Nightmare (live/remix)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Long after midnight, on a night like this
    I'd sit by my black-light and dream of your kiss
    Pulsating music filled my room and my head
    And I dreamed what it'd be like to have you in my bed

    I'm your best night, your best nightmare
    I'm your best night, your best nightmare

    And then it happened, you were in my arms
    Your lips on my throat, your hands on my, on my...
    Two bodies together the intimate sin
    The pain and the pleasure could do mortals in
    How could you know what I'm thinking of?
    To me lust can be as beautiful as love
    Here tonight, your pure heart and soul
    Untainted passion should have no control

    I'm your best night, your best nightmare
    I'm your best night, your best nightmare

    She asked me if I... I told her the truth
    I said "I'm sorry it takes me longer than you"
    She smiled and blushed and continued to grind
    And promised to make me go out of my mind
    Returning her promise she came to a halt
    Licking my lips I tasted her salt
    Then she sat up and gasped and clutched at her breast
    I thought she was coming I'd never have guessed
    That as she grew pale, as white as a flower
    She collapsed to the floor and was dead in an hour.

    Your best nightmare, your best
    Your best nightmare, your best


    Oddities Claire's Horrors (live/remix)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Spirits seem to drift up through a darkened sky
    Drifting through dead branches in the night
    While in the moonlight we go down upon our knees
    Entwined together only we can see their beauty
    Beneath the stars a bell begins to toll
    For reasons which we really shouldn't know
    So take a walk with me down to the cemetery
    Wrap me in darkness, Claire make love to me

    I am thunder, I am rain, I am pleasure, I am pain
    Only in darkness can there be light, tell me angel have you prayed tonight?

    In the dark I know you all so well
    Beauty from Heaven wrapped 'round souls from Hell
    So take a drink from me, my sacrifice to thee
    Damned fallen angels, always blessed with me

    I am thunder, I am rain, I am pleasure, I am pain
    Only in darkness can there be light, tell me angel have you prayed tonight?
    Burning darkness, red ecstasy, pull me closer and make me bleed


    Oddities Atmosphere (live)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Pale and dark and tortured blue,
    Behind a veil you find serenity.
    I guess that's something we share,
    Violently fading into nothing to find peace,
    Or escape it.
    Curious, majestic black strands cover you entirely,
    Yet I know you're there.
    Always being tested,
    An eternal game that must leave your soul in shreds,
    As it does mine.
    You have my sympathy.
    But forget about everything just for tonight,
    This moment in life,
    This moment in time
    Could be your first,
    Or your last.
    You abandoned hope long ago
    You abandoned love
    Or it abandoned you
    But now is the time for beauty,
    Violent beauty so pure it's scary,
    The past is over,
    This is something new,
    Altogether alien, exotic, and welcome,
    Erasing what came before,
    With a blink of her amazing eyes...


    Oddities A Letter to God (live)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Is this life this degradation, this pointless game, humiliation?
    Born to die, we're born to lose and not one choice we make we choose
    And when this life is at an end we find that Death's our only friend
    Must we suffer through your games, oh Lord? Can God really be so bored?
    We waste our lives destroying, hating, while beneath our flesh a skull lies waiting
    Blind to beauty blind to love, we fear of our loving Lord above
    Some live their lives to play their games, some live as victims, the insane
    Your experiment oh Lord has failed and I trust that when we meet you will forgive us

    It's futile so I'll end this note and find a knife and slit my throat
    And come to track you down oh Lord you better watch your back
    Be sure that when we meet you'll be surprised no loving praise, no glee filled cries
    Just pain and hate and tear filled sighs and the question in the end is "Why?"


    Oddities Sacrifice (live)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    ...and here we go again
    We've taken it to the end
    With every waking moment
    We face this silent torment

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you

    Darkness...
    Is all I want to see
    I could never put in to words
    What it is you mean to me

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you

    The candle's burning lower
    At the window to my soul
    The reaper's at my door now
    He's come to take me home

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you


    Oddities Demon
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Through darkened streets and blackened gloom
    The candles dim in your bedroom
    Rain reflecting shadows in the night
    The moon is full and through the mist
    I hear your voice I feel your kiss
    The line grows thin between what's wrong and right
    Burning flesh pale as the stars
    No one knows just who you are
    Drive the knife in deeper to my soul
    Velvet touch your mouth on mine
    Drunk on lust like drunk on wine
    The world will end we'll hear the thunder roll

    Don't even say it
    Don't even look away
    Haunted by, haunted by
    Black winged angel come to me release my soul from this misery

    In the candle light you'll see
    Just what all this means to me
    The line grows thin between what's wrong and right

    Don't even say it
    Don't even look away
    Haunted by, haunted by
    Black winged angel come to me release my soul from this misery


    Oddities Untitled

    Twilight... the leaves fall,
    The ground... is oh so cold
    Sing about God,
    sing on his death
    Sing about love
    Sing about sex
    Your great mystery's a lie
    Hypocrisy's the rule
    Sing on the death... of God

    Of darkness and light
    Of heaven and hell
    Of sinful delights
    Beneath our feet lie shattered wings
    Our screams bring the awakening of God...

    So say goodbye to torture and lies
    And if there's a God pray He opens His eyes
    His angels aren't the master race
    We'll tell Him when we're face to face with God


    Oddities Spider and the Fly (acoustic/tangled web mix)
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Empty hearts I can hear them talking
    I close my eyes and I keep on stalking my love, my love
    No one's aware of the hunger I feel
    It's something you or time cannot heal
    I need someone to help me rise above
    Eternal bliss is something I can show you
    Spread your arms and let my wings enfold you, my love, my love
    In the darkness shades of crimson rapture
    The world is ours alone to capture my love, my love

    Come over here and let me tell you something
    Nothing ever comes of nothing
    We pay a price for all our choices made
    Come along now and take my hand
    I'll lead you to a promised land
    The morning after may never come again, will never be the same
