"Ill Wind (You're Blowing Me No Good)" by Ted Koehler
as performed by Julie Benz in The Trials

Blow, ill wind, blow away
Let me rest today.
You're blowing me no good.
No good.

Go, ill wind, go away.
Skies are oh so gray
Around my neighborhood.
And that ain't good.

You're only misleading
The sunshine I'm needing,
And ain't that a shame.
It's so hard to keep up
With troubles that creep up
From out of nowhere
When love's to blame.

So, ill wind, blow away.
Let me rest today.
You're blowing me no good.
So, ill wind, blow away.
Please let me rest today.
You're blowing me no good.
No good.



"Killer Queen" by Queen

She keeps her Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built - in remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laserbeam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime
Ooh, recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
(Killer, killer, she's a killer Queen)
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Drop of a hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild...
She's all out to get you

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Ooh, recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try ?
You wanna try...


"Maneater" by Daryl Hall & John Oates
as used in Lady Raven's
Bete Noir

She'll only come out at night
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I've seen her here before
Watching and waiting
Ooh, she's seated with you but her eyes are on the door

So many have paid to see
What you think you're getting for free
The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar
Money's the matter
If you're in it for love
You ain't gonna get too far

(Oh here she comes)
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
(Oh here she comes)
She's a maneater
(Oh here she comes)
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
(Oh here she comes)
She's a maneater

I wouldn't if I were you
I know what she can do
She's deadly man, she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there but a beast is in the heart

(Oh here she comes)
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
(Oh here she comes)
She's a maneater
(Oh here she comes)
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
(Oh here she comes)
She's a maneater

Ooh, Oh here she comes
Here she comes
Watch out boy she'll chew you up
Whoa here she comes
(Watch out)
She's a maneater
Oh here she comes
(She's a maneater)
Ooh, she'll chew you up
(Oh here she comes)
Here she comes, she's a maneater
(Oh here she comes)
(Watch out)
She'll only come out at night, ooh
(Oh here she comes)
Here she comes
She's a maneater
(Oh here she comes)
(She's a maneater)
The woman is wild ooh
(Oh here she comes)
Here she comes
Watch out boy, watch out boy
(Oh here she comes)
Oh, watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out
(Oh here she's comes)
Yeah yeah she's a maneater
(Oh here she comes)
(She's a maneater)
She's watching and waiting ooh
(Oh here she comes)
Oh she's a maneater



"Mouthful of Poison" by Kittie

Blood spilled
Heart-felt
Head filled
Play dead
Consider yourself now, my friend
Enemy number one
You are bound and gagged, sacred circle broken trust
Now the plague has been cast in your town, acid tongue venom word
Why bother to lie?
Leave the lamb behind
Your mouth full of (lead and lies)
Don't walk in fire, you might find that you'll get burned
What a find dirty face
Guilt at last, is this a lesson that's learned?
Can you hear your own blood in your veins, calling out your desire?
Silence a word to the wise
I can't hear you scream
Drowning so it seems your mouth is full of poison


"Spark" by Tori Amos

she's addicted to nicotine patches
she's addicted to nicotine patches
she's afraid of the light in the dark
6.58 are you sure where my spark is
here, here, here

she's convinced she could hold back a glacier
but she couldn't keep Baby alive
doubting if there's a woman in there somewhere
here, here, here
you say you don't want it again
and again but you don't really mean it
you say you dont want it
this circus we're in
but you don't you don't really mean it you don't really mean it

if the Divine master plan is perfection
maybe next i'll give Judas a try
trusting my soul to the ice cream assassin
here, here, here
you say you don't want it again
and again but you don't really mean it
you say you don't want it
this circus we're in
but you don't you don't really mean it you don't really mean it

how many fates turn around in the overtime
ballerinas that have fins that you'll never find
you thought that you were the bomb yeah well so did i
say you don't want it
say you don't want it
say you don't want it again
and again but you don't really mean it
say you don't want it
this circus we're in
but you don't you don't really mean it you don't really mean it

she's addicted to nicotine patches
she's afraid of the light in the dark
6.58 are you sure where my spark is
here, here, here


"Touch the Moon" by Dollshead

Saturday night in another motel staring at some old tattoos and crying
Can you walk that walk, can you talk that deal maybe I can make you feel like dying
When you put your money on the sheet and you fall in love and life is sweet as it can be
No, I don't believe in anyone so I make believe that everyone is tres jolie, tres jolie
Everywhere in the universe, worlds collide and come to an end
I don't want to be beautiful
I don't want to wake up again
I want to touch the moon
You got two left feet and a musical ear and a bodyguard standing over there whose flying
And she's all dressed up in a leotard, is she old enough are you getting hard, she's dying
It's a lot of work for a little crime, just being born means doing time and doing me
No, I don't believe in anything so I make believe that everything is tres jolie, tres jolie
Everywhere in the universe, worlds collide and come to an end
I don't want to be beautiful
I don't want to wake up again
I want to touch the moon



"The Man in the Long Black Coat" by Bob Dylan
as used in Blackwinged Angel's
The Man in the Long Black Coat

Crickets are chirpin' the water is high
There's a soft cotton dress on the line hangin' dry
Window's wide open African trees
Bent over backwards in a hurricane breeze
Not a word, a goodbye, not even a note
She's gone with the man in the long black coat

Somebody seem him hangin' around
At the old dance hall on the outskirts of town
He looked into her eyes when she stopped him to ask
If he wanted to dance he had a face like a mask
Somebody said, from the Bible he quote
There was dust on the man in the long black coat

Preacher was talkin' there's a sermon he gave
He said every man's conscience is vile and depraved
You cannot depend on it to be your guide
When it's you who must keep it satisfied
It ain't easy to swallow, it sticks in the throat
She give her heart to the man in the long black coat

One, two... There are no mistakes in life some people say
It's true sometimes you can see it that way
People don't live or die, people just float
She give her heart to the man in the long black coat

There's smoke on the water, it's been there since June
Tree trunks uprooted in the high crescent moon
Hear the pulse and vibrations and the rumblin' force
Somebody's out there beating on a dead horse
She never said nothin', there was nothin' she wrote
She's gone with the man in the long black coat



"Painted On My Heart" by the Cult

I thought you'd be out of my mind
And I'd finally found a way to
Learn to live without you
I thought it was just a matter of time
Till I had a hundred reasons
Not to think about you
But it's just not so
And after all this time
I still can't let go

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Scrawled upon my soul
Etched upon my memory baby
And I've got your kiss
Still burning on my lips
The touch of your fingertips
This love so deep inside of me, baby

I was trying everything that I can
To get my heart to forget you
But it just can't seem to
I guess it's just no use
In every part of me
Is still a part of you

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Scrawled upon my soul
Etched upon my memory baby
I've got your kiss
Still burning on my lips
The touch of your fingertips
This love so deep inside of me

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart

Something in your eyes keeps haunting me
I'm trying to escape you
And I know there ain't no way to
To chase you from my mind

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Scrawled upon my soul
Etched upon my memory baby
And I've got your kiss
Still burning on my lips
The touch of your fingertips
This love so deep inside of me

I've still got your face
I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart



"Poison" by Alice Cooper

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill

I wanna you but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison, running through my veins
You're Poison
I don't wanna break these chains

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat...

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (and pins)
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't wanna touch you but you're under my skin (deep in)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're Poison, running through my veins
You're Poison
I don't wanna break these chains
Poison...

One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill...

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison, running through my veins
You're Poison
I don't wanna break these chains
Poison (Poison...)

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
Yeah...
Well I don't wanna break these chains
Poison (Poison)
Runnin' deep inside my veins
Burnin' deep inside my brain
Burnin' deep inside my veins...
Poison
And I don't wanna break these chains
Poison
Poison...



"Nocturne" by Red Delicious

Daylight fades my love
Static comes but you can't hear it
Where you are, you're disconnected
This is my only song
I sing it soft to you tonight
And hope you hear
Hear me & and answer
If I give will you receive
Will you be true if I believe
You’re far away but you are never out of reach
Be real my love, be here for me
And I'll never ask anything
But this from you
Darkness falls my love
Night surrounds me thick & close
It pulls me in, isolates me
This is my only song
My solitary cry for you
To let me in, without hesitation
I fall a thousand steps behind
If I look back I will go blind
You’re out of sight but you are never out of mind
Be real my love, be here for me
And I'll never ask anything
But this from you
Be whole my love
Be real for me
And I'll never be anything but real for you
