    I can't believe it's taken me this long to realise I never actually linked Shut Up And Drive for Venture

    Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
    Got a ride that's smoother than a limousine
    Can you handle the curves? Can you run all the lights?
    If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night
    'Cause I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
    Baby, you got the keys
    Now shut up and drive

    The twins.



    The devil, he's at my door
    And I know what he came here for
    The kind of fun that I adore
    I let him enter to make some more

    Fire, it burn my skin
    But I still want to play with it
    Like a shark fin in the swim
    I cut myself and jump on in

    Perfume remains musical #aesthetic for Gess, and also this one in particular in Life Support's direction

    We're not in a relationship where I can say I want to be with you, after all
    As I know more about your likes
    these feelings became even greater

    Hey, have you noticed the floating scent of my secret love?
    I love you, but I can only tell you such casual everyday things
    I want to know the true feelings of the you who is so kind
    But I'm scared, so I can only talk about the same things as usual

    Burlesque.



    Party at the beach down in Copacabana
    Sipping Killepitsch, got my black yoga pants on
    Me and Brittany, we've been down in Atlanta
    Sweating in the club, call me Dirty Diana
    Flexing like a yogi, drop it down with your hands up
    Do a handstand, bend it back, put your legs up
    I ain't got no worries, I'm my own private dancer (dancah)
    (Ha!) My own private dancer

    Open my chest and colour my spine
    I'm giving you all
    I'm giving you all
    Swallow my breath
    And take what is mine
    I'm giving you all
    I'm giving you all

    I'll be the blood
    If you'll be the bones
    I'm giving you all
    I'm giving you all
    So lift up my body
    And lose all control
    I'm giving you all
    I'm giving you all

    Don't let me get out of this kiss
    Don't let me say what I say
    The things that scare us today
    what if they happen someday
    Don't let me out of your arms
    For now

    What if the sword kills the pen
    What if the god kills the man
    And if he does it with love
    Well then it's death from above
    And death from above is still a death.

    Stentato.



    When you were young
    You'd bite your tongue
    Calm, always did what you were told
    Never ran your mouth
    Lived life on tiptoes
    Only felt peace if by yourself
    Where mistakes don't count

    There's a hole in your chest
    From the time that you was born
    One that don't get filled
    Cause you've always known
    You're nothing they want

    Venture

    What I'm really needin' now
    Is a double shot of Crown
    Chase that disco ball around
    'Til I don't remember
    Go until they cut me off
    Wanna get a little lost
    In the noise, in the lights
    Hey bartender
    Pour 'em hot tonight
    'Til the party and music and the truth collide
    Bring it 'til his memory fades away
    Hey bartender

    Iridium


    In Costa Rica, in a burrow underground
    Climb to the surface, blink my eyes and look around
    I'm all alone here as I try my tiny song
    Claim my place beneath the sky, but I won't be here for long

    I sang all night
    The moon shone on me through the trees
    No brothers left
    And there'll be no more after me

    Now if you have a taste for this experience
    And you're flushed with your very first success
    Then you must try a twosome or a threesome
    And you'll find your conscience bothers you much less

    Because murder is like anything you take to
    It's a habit-forming need for more and more

    This feels like a very Archive song to me. Probably bc of the religious imagery, and being simultaneously melancholy and... enduring? It's a song about persistence and the light at the end of the tunnel. EDIT: It's also a song about imperfection not ruining things, which is very in line with her heresy.



    The birds they sang
    at the break of day
    Start again
    I heard them say
    Don't dwell on what
    has passed away
    or what is yet to be.
    Ah the wars they will
    be fought again
    The holy dove
    She will be caught again
    bought and sold
    and bought again
    the dove is never free.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack in everything
    That's how the light gets in.

    If this song is Flimflam when Lacuna left...



    Stay, stay
    Amelia
    Stay, stay
    Amelia
    I swear if you reach that door
    You're not welcome anymore
    Stay, stay
    Amelia


    Plates and bottles on the floor
    I can't fix them on my own
    Gee we had it figured out
    Limitless in love
    We even broke into a warehouse
    So no one would find out
    Your father chased us down
    We even packed that suitcase
    Are you really walking out?

    ...
    then this song is Lacuna as she's leaving.



    The streets are full of eyes
    And they're all dressed up like they know me
    But I don't mind that I'm alone
    'Cause in all else aside
    I think of you, how you told me
    That we'll be shining in our own

    Let it go to your head
    They told you glamor is dead
    Romance, true love is dead
    Really that's what they said
    Getting lost in the light
    Now there's a shadow of us
    Playing games in the dust
    Dreams of glitter and gloss

    Prayer is the bell jar you put over this goodbye.
    I’d rather leave this embrace between you and I.
    Let’s lock out the bearded old man in the night gown.
    He can tap against the glass but I’m not coming out.

    I build bridges with these arms, I will not build a fortress.
    In the circle around the kitchen table I say my “amen” because I feel blessed.
    Secretly hoping while joining hands that you can’t feel my trembling fingertips.
    If I sign this piece of paper do I sell my soul along with my duties?
    We won’t put our money where your catholic mouth is.
    Even though the teeth are long gone there’s still bone beneath the gums
    and there’s a lot of potential in a mighty organ.

    And they told us not to clap so we clap as loud as we can
    because the reverb in those holy halls is like a long lost friend.
    He keeps hitting the walls and comes all the way back again.

    I want trees instead of gravestones and nothing to confess.
    I got a soft spot for your ancient books of horror stories.
    I got a music in my ears from long long ago and far far away
    and I still hum its tune but how could I ever believe every word it says to me?

    We follow our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    Our own steps while our shadows keep watching us.
    The wrong step would be not to start this exodus.

    Afterglow

    I've deceived the lonely
    And in the dark, I've grown
    I now clench the fists of hands
    To limbs that aren't my own

    (I was only a child
    It makes no sense)

    He stumbled into faith and thought,
    "God, this is all there is."
    The pictures in his mind arose
    And began to breathe
    And all the gods and all the worlds
    Began colliding on a backdrop of blue
    Blue lips, blue veins

    Lacuna to Burlesque



    Old suitcase, clean getaway
    I'm the one who takes the blame again
    New day but the same lines, I
    Feel like a victim of the dollar sign

    All these years on my own
    Fight my fight all alone
    'Til you came, don't you know
    Don't you know

    Baby, you're the highlight of my lowlife
    Take a shitty day and make it alright, yeah, alright
    Oh, in every circumstance
    Yeah, you make the difference
    Baby, you're the highlight of my lowlife, lowlife

    Open up and let me in
    Show the bruises on your skin
    Let the fires all burn out
    I can hear the silent shout in you
    Let it go don't be so scared
    Find the love you lost again
    Let the chaos disappear
    Don't you know I'm always here for you?

    Cause this is devotion, I am lost
    You're the only one I see
    Our bodies in motion, I am caught
    Floating in your gravity
    Whenever you break, I'll fix it for you
    I'm the one who drives to you at night
    And maybe we'll fall a little deeper
    I think our little hearts will be alright
    Cause this is devotion

    Please imagine Wiretap serenading Afterglow with the most "is this sarcasm or over-honesty" tone, hamming up the Altihexian miner accent, just being a fuckin goof with the bae

    She's getting tired of her high class toys
    And all her presents from her uptown boys
    She's got a choice

    Uptown girl
    You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
    But maybe someday when my ship comes in
    She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
    And then I'll win
