Jonathan Harris Because I love everything Kimberly does and the mixtures of styles vocally , musically , stage performances with One Eyed Doll etc. Very talented! But hearing some of the songs live is where it gives the goosebumps , the chills , the heart she puts into everything she and the band does . Big fan !

Rita I had a really hard time picking a favorite track, because this entire album is a masterpiece. 'Secret Lullaby' is absolutely beautiful lyrically and composition wise. Kimberly's music continues to evolve over the years (for the better). Elements of this album feel reminiscent of Katie Jane Garside, Amy Lee, and Emilie Autumn. My favorite songs are "Rust," "Amnesia," "To Love a Soldier," "Cream and Sugar," "Lions and Lilies," "Chocolate for Blood," and "Secret Lullaby." I highly recommend! 5/5! Favorite track: Cream And Sugar.

Track Name: Rust
I was a ship
Sailing the ocean
So free

No one to bother
My lonely captain
And me

He was the wind
He was the water
He loved me

Together forever
One with the water

Time passes by
Out in the ocean
Slowly

No one to bother
My lonely captain
And me

Salt in the wind
Salt in the water
Made him rusty

Storm in the distance
He heard a siren
Calling

I am a relic
Under the ocean
Cold and lonely

No one to bother
My lonely captain
And me
Track Name: The Thief
Oh, I’m afraid of dying
Secretly
But oh, I’m so tired of crying
Oh, what’s become of me


Oh, Trying hard to smile now
All for my family
But oh, the shelter’s breaking
And I, I am underneath


And oh, I can’t help but wonder
Who it could be
The one who takes our innocence
The thief who follows me


Once I was pure and simple
Life was young and sweet
But oh, my love was taken
Stolen by the thief


And oh, I can’t help but wonder
Who it could be
The one who takes our innocence
The thief who follows me

And oh, I can’t help but wonder
Who it could be
The one who takes our innocence
The thief who follows me
Track Name: Amnesia
Amnesia
Amnesia
Please take all the pain from my heart
Amnesia
Amnesia
I want to forget who you are

Whoever said “Tis better to have loved and lost”
Is wrong
No, they never felt
This aching and the loneliness so strong
Oh, I’m crying
And I know you’ve forgotten me by now

Amnesia
I wish you’d show me how
Please show me how

Amnesia
Amnesia
You think of me once and awhile
Amnesia
Amnesia
And I can’t recall how to smile

Whoever said
“Tis better to have loved and lost”
Is wrong
They never felt
This aching, oh the loneliness so strong
Oh, I’m crying
And I know you’ve forgotten me by now
Amnesia
I wish you’d show me how
Please show me how

You said
I can’t do this anymore
I know I’m not worth waiting for
The words echo endlessly
It’s all I hear
Your voice
So sorry and sincere

Whoever said
“Tis better to have loved and lost”
Is wrong
No, they never felt
This aching, oh the loneliness so strong
Oh, I’m crying
And I know you’ve forgotten me by now
Amnesia
I wish you’d show me how
Please show me how

Amnesia
Please take all the pain from my heart

Amnesia
Please take all the pain from my heart

Amnesia
Please take all the pain from my heart

Amnesia
Please take all the pain from my heart

From my heart
Track Name: To Love A Soldier
Cold and dusty
The vacant pillow of a soldier
But I wait patiently
That's what it takes to love a soldier

Once he swore to me
That someday soon I'd see my soldier
So I wait patiently
That's what it takes to love a soldier

That's what it takes to love a soldier

A folded flag they brought to me
The broken promise of a soldier
But I'll wait patiently
I forgive you, oh my soldier

That's what it takes to love a soldier

Years pass slowly
And I grow old, but not my soldier
I wait patiently
That's what it takes to love a soldier

That's what it takes to love a soldier

I wait patiently
Track Name: Cream And Sugar
Warm that up for you, hun?
Do you take cream and sugar?
You wouldn't know it now
But I had big dreams
They had nothing to do with cream and sugar

Clock in at five
Side work till six
Tables till midnight
Day in day out
It pays the bills
My boss is alright

But oh in my dreams
I am flying away
Away from these diner walls

Warm that up for you hun?
Do you take cream and sugar?
You wouldn't know it now
But I've got big dreams
I'm gonna quit after this next paycheck

Days turn into weeks - next paycheck
Weeks turn into months - next paycheck
Months turn into years - next paycheck
Years turn into life - next paycheck

The coffee gets cold
The story grows old
In silence I cry
Life passes by
And I ask why

But oh in my dreams
I am flying away
Away from these diner walls

Warm that up for you, hun?
Do you take cream and sugar?
Track Name: White Dress Princess
Daisy chains
Four grass-stained knees
Tiny swordless bees

White dress princess

Pale white princess
Down the green
Runs from the machine
Takes my brother’s hand and me
Heading for the trees

White dress princess
White dress princess

Don’t cry, brother
She is me
Brother’s breaking free

White dress princess
White dress princess

Enchanted princess
Full of screams
Children in her dreams

Leaves me dangling in the trees
To sunset flees
Track Name: Lions and Lilies
Leones y lillios
Track Name: Child Of Yesterday
Dream of me
Silently
In a field where flowers play, play

Secretly
Haunting me
Forgotten child of yesterday, yesterday

Lonely
Memory
No one o'er your grave to pray

Hide and seek
Soul to keep
In a field where flowers play, lay

Dream of me
Silently
In a field where flowers play
Track Name: Journey Of Art
In a landfill
Filled with art
A thousand voices
Stole my heart

Ramble on
Only friend
May your stories
Never end

Light in the dark
Song of my heart
Peacefully embark
This journey of art

I am blind
But I see
Truth in art
Your beauty

Years of silence
Hunger pains
Still your spirit
Fills my veins

Light in the dark
Song of my heart
Peacefully embark
This journey of art

Light in the dark
Song of my heart
Peacefully embark
This journey of art
Track Name: Hoof Horn Tooth Claw
Something wicked
Something growing
In my body
Ember glowing

Be still
Child of fire in my dreams came
Be still
Cloven hooves come to bring me pain

Oh, invader
Will this end in dying?
Do I know you?
I can hear you crying

Drink of me and live, oh
Stronger by the day
Drink of me and take my life away

It eats me from within
Blood and milk and sin
Monstrosity my twin
It’s tearing through my skin
Demon don’t you cry
Your exodus is nigh
From this vessel fly
The world to occupy

Something wicked
Something growing

Drink of me and live, oh
Stronger by the day
Drink of me and take my life away

You eat me from within
My blood, milk, sin
Monstrosity my twin
Oh, tearing
Tearing through my skin
Demon don’t you cry
Your exodus I can feel is nigh
From this vessel fly
The world to occupy
Track Name: Enchantment
It was a summer night
New Mexico
Riding toward the light
Of home

Two spirits in a dream
We interloped
The figment of a king
The prophet wrote

A man in black appeared
And as he spoke
Our world began to quake
And smoke

Oh, Enchantment
The land of the serpent
Purgatorio
Through the Valley of Death I go

Stranded in a dream
New Mexico
A mirage it seemed
The thought of home

Oh, Enchantment
The land of the serpent
Purgatorio
Through the Valley of Death I go

The angels clapped their hands
One was made of stone, said
"Climb upon my back
I'll take you home"

Oh, Enchantment
The land of the serpent
Purgatorio
Through the Valley of Death I go

Oh, Enchantment
The land of the serpent
Purgatorio
Through the Valley of Death I go

It was a summer night
New Mexico
Track Name: The Missing Link
I can’t see your face
But I know who you are
You wouldn’t know it now
But baby, I’m a star
They called me a mystery
They said I held the key
They called me special
They called me

The missing link

I can still see the cameras
And all the fans
The flashing lights all around
The clapping hands
But fame is fleeting
And people forget
They left me to Buckshire
Forsaken, I wept

Years of solitude
And you’ll lose your mind
I cried so many tears
That I went blind
But prison is a memory
The lights and cameras too
The hole they left inside of me
Is now filled up with you:

The missing link
