Paul Goddard, Muzic.net.nz

The Courier, Australia

“A siren trapped in a mortal body, Green’s music often harbours a razor-sharp edge; it’s provocative in nature just as she is.

Track Name: Nymph-O
He let me go and I said I'll be fine, we can talk about this in the morning
Clever me I tricked you, through the hole I kicked you. Well at least I left a warning.
All the birds are in the trees, all I think about is how green.
I went there when they called me. More alive than bodies sleep.

We live without each other now.
I can't think of anything the same
It's an internal poison opening
I drink up the past that I am choking in.
What's wrong with that.

You were like a doll, perfectly still. And I reached out my hand to touch but it was cold.
I want to tell you everything. All I think about is hear me. I went there when they called me.
More alive than bodies sleep.

And I dreamed of those heads
The bodies were gone and the glasses kept
reappearing and disappearing in front of my face
Track Name: Night Terrors
Are you the one who hides behind me while I sleep
Are you the one who makes my eyes dark blue, black and red
Are you the one who's come to live my terror through me while I sleep
Are you the one who keeps me down.

And it's weird but I've seen you before, I've seen you before.
It goes together like the sea and salty air, in the salty air...
Answer my questions

I am the one who watches over above you while you twist and turn
I am the one who's come a long way just to tell you who I am
I am the one, who's itching to fight your lovers to the death
I am the one who liked to put my pencils back in the box

And fall asleep with you
Track Name: Winter Rain
You know everything about me, you knew it in an instant and your eyes were smiling
Because you know I won't be here forever, so for just one moment want to hold my hand somebody told you everything and you, do you like it
Rubbing my face into my past and asking do I love my filth
Oh, well do you see it. We're not there now and I'm clean now.

Winter rain, it's kissing weather. It's warm, wet weather.
Cold falling under, this kissing weather. Nothing gets better.

And you loved everything about me. You knew it in an instant and your eyes were crying.Because you knew this may not last forever, so for just one moment want to hold my hand and call me as your own. You, you lied to me. You blew me one last kiss and then you told me that I had to go. Oh, well do you see it? We're not there now, and I'm clean now.

Winter rain, it's kissing weather. It's warm, wet weather.
Cold falling under, this kissing weather. Nothing gets better.
Track Name: Everlasting Sleep
I want to leave
But I have no where to go
We lie and we stare and we moan at the impending, mess from above

And I know how to fix this myself
I can climb and I can fix this myself
There's a blade and I can stop it going around
We avoid this everlasting sleep.

This house was built to be damp.
This bed wad made to be cold.
Making love to the wall
because there's really nothing there at all


I know how to fix this myself
we get high and I can fix this myself
take all the time that we need
we enjoy this everlasting sleep.
Track Name: Harpy
I'm a harpy, I'm the Earl King's reptile to you
And I'm just desperate for attention
I am lonely
I'm Medusa
A little bit spooky
I am distilled inside your head
I am drinking in it.

I'm a harpy
I'm a challenge to you
I'm a wounded animal
I take off my clothes for anyone

Look into my eyes the snakes will die
I won't cast them down, it was a lie

And I am studied, bored
I'm a vacant animal
I am judged on the shape of my breasts
and the name I choose to call myself

I'm Medusa, did I get what was coming to me?
I'm just messy inside my head
But the snakes will die when I am done with them
Track Name: Comb Me Out
Where are the windows my only friends
I'm paranoid and standing up again
You have followed me through the darkened halls
and stopped me from jumping out the windows

You calm me down, you comb me out

Lucky to be here alive, the windows get stuck and I'm inside
I want to show you that I'm not sore with my tea offerings to flowers

You calm me down, you comb me out

Calm me down it's not too late
Strands of hair tucked in the iron gate
everyone so veiled beyond belief
I felt air on my hot hands and the smack of concrete

Body parts rebounding off the walls, with promises of "I won't do this anymore". You could be my eyes when I am sore and introduce me to myself in the mirror

You calm me down, you comb me out.
one last wish, comb me out
Track Name: Once Again
She's leapt on me before, she can't leave me alone. No
And I just can't say no. I can't take this anymore.

The emptiness that leads the night.
The soul is filled with an automatic lie.
Salty pain, spinning my world.

And now let me go home.
Where I hope the sea will let me drown.
We can make this a lie.
I'm begging but she doesn't understand why.


Once Again


Alright, once again. The sea will let me drown.
But she doesn't understand why.
It leads the night, and the soul is filled with an automatic lie.

Salty pain.
Track Name: Wait Here
Sometimes he leaves me there, waiting.


But this morning he wouldn't leave me alone
he's been calling out my name to own
it's not for you, to be so sad
it's been a year now since I could understand

Wait here, painted outside the liquor store


He awaits my time, I lose some sleep.
I bless the blood that comes to me
But he goes on and on and on at me

It's not for you to be so sad, it's been a year now since I could understand
Track Name: Little Black Pain
In the wind your breath is blowing.
Stronger, with your words. I know you let me down.

Little black pain.
Take me with you.
I know you've been lonely.
I just don't know what to do.
Do you know me?

It's you, but not really you.
I can smell mould growing.
Your eyes, beautiful, don't recognise anything.


You know I've been lonely.
All the stories are true.
Do you know me?


Mali tsni bolu
povedi me sa sobom
znash da sam usajena
sve priche su istinite

You want me to suffer
Well, suppose that I do
Little black pain
Take me with you
Do you know me?
Track Name: Kyla's Walking
This doesn't work with my broken mind, love.
I was drinking for the two of us.
Wandering down the path alone, no faces in the rain.
For a second my wish came true
I sensed you, behind my eyes
I thought I saw you walking just the other night
A flash of light


And no, I don't believe it but it's true
I must have been calling out for you


This doesn't work with my broken mind, love.
I was thinking of the two us.
Trading places on the lonely path
No traces of the pain.
For a second my wish came true.
I sensed you, sensing me.
I thought you saw me walking just the other night.

A flash of light.
A flash of light, I saw you.
