poem by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Hist! - The sonorous orchestral ambience and the arabesque-stanc'd ballerina,
Her wee feet in an alacritic m?lstrom-twirl,
And the dust-hurl with her tears blendeth - Egad! this quagmire;




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

F?rie dearest, was it loe soothfast or a facade;
A serenade siren'd to lure - Zounds! not to court me?
A m?nad, yet the sweetest colleen -
Certes didst thou me unveil meekly life pristine.




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Twit me, I am thy tyke;
Meekness for thee aught.




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Cede the wherefores and do na chide,
Maybe I am peenging - ween of joy;
Cede the wherefores and do na chide -
Thrawn and slab of leer I hold thee, and yore was 'gal.




solitary soliloquial play by Liv & Raymond
music by Lorentz & Liv

Come in out of the rain thou sayest -
But thou ne'er step'st aside; and I am trapp'd -
A distance there is...




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Ado with a mean woe,
An ado as aglow:
Belying the paynim
Thou rewrot'st the tome -
An ivy-crown'd and dancing,
And fawn'd and trancing -
Espying the surly wud,
And heeding her not.




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Dream of a funeral, blest temptress - behest me! -
A funeral thou'lt hark, swarth murderess - the Devil,
Thine feral grith with me, Popp?a, be Hell's hap;
Waylaid the beldame bawd, the niggard: Laughing tragedy.




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Fro my heart wilt thou ne'er

Be left without - come!




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Circa mea pectora multa sunt suspiria
De tua pulchritudine, que me ledunt misere.




words by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

He gave to her, yet tenfold claim'd in return -
She hath no life but the one he for her wrought;
Proffer'd to her his wauking heart - she turn'd it down,
Riposted with a tell-tale lore of lies and scorn.
