FANMIX: Letters to the Empress [Original | Turncoat/Empress]

Medium: Original.
Fandom: Fear Itself.
Subject: Turncoat/Empress.
Title: Letters to the Empress.
Warnings: Romantization of hugely unhealthy behaviours (so what else is new??).
Notes: The credit for the original photo was unfortunately lost to the mists of tumblr, and reverse searching did me no good, so do let me know if you've got the artist! This was ALSO supposed to be a birthday gift for Archie, but I took way too long, so... Now it's just a random gifto I s'pose. Also I'll probably update it with Empress' side of the equation, but for now, it's all Coat feelings all the time.

Also, I've changed my 8tracks username, so until I have time to edit all the archival posts in here, just change the url from birdslut to expletives in order to follow links!!

SHE WANTS REVENGE; first, love
( instrumental )

i'll play your games
if your aim is for the quick fix
'cause i know what you wanted
and i know how you got it

i'll play your games
if you play out in the fast lane
learn to jump into the road
and hope to save a little lost face

and maybe then you wouldn't get so sick of me

NINE INCH NAILS; we're in this together
the farther i fall i'm beside you
as lost as i get i will find you
the deeper the wound i'm inside you
for ever and ever i'm a part of

you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
if the world should break in two
until the very end of me
until the very end of you

IAMX; the great shipwreck of life
play with me
you can make the love and i'll make the money
stay with me
shut out the world, live underneath the city

release cold gender bombs
on colonial closets, middle england
stay with me
i'll be peter pan and you just be pretty

THAT HANDSOME DEVIL; twist the knife
if it's a curse, then make it hurt.
come on and curse me
i'll go to work with all the jerks
and wake up early
with all the little birdies
chirping for me
well, i'll break their scrawny necks
one of these mornings

get love and hate confused,
can't separate the two.
oh my love, how i've hated you.
i say it's over (it's over!)
this time we're through (we're through!)
but i go crazy when i'm not with you

LUDO; anything for you
my scar is from a polar bear, my curse is from a witch,
i've caught a giant squid in all the seven seas
i've picked up rocks from distant moons astronomers will discover soon
but i would give them all back just for you

i've gotten drunk and shot the breeze with kings of far off lands
they showed me wealth as far as i could see
but their kingdoms seemed all shrivelly and they cried with jealousy
when I leaned in and told them about you

i'd give up anything
(anything for you)
i'd give it all
(all of this is true)
but the best story that i could ever tell
is the one where i am growing old with you

SAY ANYTHING; i want to know your plans
no more fighting
this is only a waste of our time
'cause soon we'll be leaving
will this strength still be mine?

i'll look out for you 'til I die, 'til i rot
i'll remember you 'til I die, 'til i rot

you're what keeps me believing the world's not gone dead.
strength in my bones put the words in my head.
when they pour out to paper, it's all for you

THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM; blue jeans & white t-shirts
still we sing with our heroes, thirty rounds per minute
we're never going home until the sun says we're finished
i'll love you forever if i ever love at all
with wild hearts, blue jeans & white t-shirts

so tonight I'll call you from a fourth street payphone
we'll sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride
someday I'll buy you that house on cookman
we could sleep on the beach all night

GAVIN MIKHAIL; i'll follow you into the dark
you and me have seen everything to see
from bangkok to calgary
and the soles of your shoes are all worn down
the time for sleep is now
it's nothing to cry about
'cause we'll hold each other soon
in the blackest of rooms

if heaven and hell decide
that they both are satisfied
illuminate the "no"'s on their vacancy signs
if there's no one beside you
when your soul embarks
then i'll follow you into the dark
then i'll follow you into the dark

( instrumental )
