Devil's choir I'm on fire Uncivilized, canonized screams Wandering out of this still day While they prey Running down the hill arms raised We're crazed, we play Devil's choir Never tire Restless fire set free Running up the hill we play While they prey Fluttering until it seems safe In case Devil's choir High on fire Never tire

Joni Blue 04:07
She’s only gone to the south Said it’s only for a little while Didn’t say what it was about But as she turned she started to smile Oh I need my blue CD I’ve looked and looked all around In and under every pile The only songs that I’ve found Are in a totally different style Oh I need my blue CD Been so long since she’s been around Must be something great 47 miles away I haven’t given up hope yet I know she’ll come back any day I mean that used CD I need my blue CD And now you’re back in town With the top down And we get lost in sound

Oh God 02:52
Took me out of time, threw me out of space Love sublime, restored my faith Livin‘ in my mind, in my own cage I never realised how good it tastes And oh God, he's the one And I'll come clean, confess to all I've done Playing Mingus inside on this cloudy day Sounds divine, you touch my face You taste like wine I could drink all day I'm up so high, there's no more grey And oh God, he's the one And I'll come clean, confess to all I've done Walkin‘ a straight line while they prey I feel so fine, I could cry all day Love divine, let the music play I feel so fine, let the music play

10:23 03:12
Inviting in light of the doom I’m flying away to the moon Wild thing right here in the room Smiling lips staining tatoos of maroon I’m dying to hear all the news You’re sitting across from me, la di la loo Tying your new tennis shoes Confused but enlightened, happy but bruised I’m dying to get out and cruise With you by my side, la di la loo Signing the contract, the madness ensues I’m pleasantly waiting, got nothing to lose In gown honey It’s bold money I’m pining You’re so funny And you keep coming Reclining 10:23 out on the street, you’re dressed all in blue I’m prying you out of your gloom You’re thriving from midnight to noon Your driving intent’s to go out with a boom
5.
The Club 02:51
In love down at the club Summer nights alight with our laughter Here you come, let’s dance and have fun Black skies alive Stars tease the dark Cruisin’ through the night Let’s go too far Dreamed of this sort of height Hold tight Keep on holding on because we’re on It’s true love at the club Daylight’s in sight Black skies alive Stars tease the dark Cruisin’ through the night Let’s go too far It’s breaking it’s shifting It’s moving it’s shaking It’s breaking it’s shifting It’s moving, it’s taking It’s soothing

6am 03:46
Getting out your weapon while we’re still inside Getting out your weapon at 6am She swore that she wouldn’t fall apart Get it out of your head no need to cry No matter what I said, still off you ride I swore that I wouldn’t even start Intake, intake, don’t let this stagnate Sealed by our handshake, it’s on Now we’re through with this session back on the same side Only pure expression nothing denied She’s bored and she couldn’t tell them apart Intake, intake don’t let this stagnate Sealed by our handshake Now starts your confession, I unmagnify Absence of venom, now you’re purified You implored that you couldn’t take part Think straight, think straight, don’t let this rotate Healed by this daybreak, what you take
7.
All I want is to watch the stars with you All I’ve got is love through and through Lean on me, tell me baby Lean on me, I’ll let you free Left me a spark in the dark, drove 47 miles just for you Let’s just start on my mark, there’s nothin left to lose Dream of me, tell me baby You’ll save me, I’ll set you free All I want is to watch the stars with you All I’ve got is love through and through
8.
Delete 03:22
Ran out of day Black skies from grey You’re on a plane Flying away You’re bending intentions, that’s mean I don’t have to react to your puzzles or pleas Now sending your pictures to me I don’t plan to WhatsApp you, I stand on the street Delete, I delete I repeat, I delete It’s the first of May Jumped on a train Watch Munich fade Landscapes and stains Now sensing my tension you leave You can do, withstand truth, till one day you flee Unpleasant obsessions, I’m beat I’ve tried to adapt you, I stand on the street Delete, I delete I repeat, I delete
9.
Life’s getting hard, let’s just play some cards An hour left till day I’m found Life’s so hard, all these little scars Went out to watch the break of day I’m down Feed up, clean up, keep up on time Eat up, speed up, beat up, you’re mine He said don’t wriggle just a little and you’ll be just fine He placed me in the middle, I start to tremble, gotta keep my mind And then I start to fiddle, start to sizzle but my hands are tied Life’s so hard tied up in your car We speed through the rain I’m dyin’ Feed up, clean up, keep up on time Eat up, speed up, beat up, you’re mine He told me not to wriggle, not to wiggle, both of my hands tied Trapped in the middle, I start to tremble and now she’s starting to cry My mood is brittle, he starts to ramble, I’m running out of time You know we hid all, all that we did, to save their lives You know we hid all, all that we did, to save your life
10.
Deserted 04:20
Now I’m in the desert havin’ nightmares I know where you’ve been, it’s killing me Was livin’ with no cares, but now I’m awake Leavin’ at any cost, even if it’s your loss Now I’m in the desert havin’ nightmares I know where you’ve been, it’s killing me Was livin’ with no cares, but now I’m awake
11.
Downfall 03:52
He drives real fast in his car He frequents dusty bars He dresses to kill and maybe he does He’s such a thrill, it’s like a drug And baby when you call I just can’t help it I’m right there when you call You’re gonna be my downfall He wears so many scars So cool and so hardened He dresses to kill and maybe he does I love him still, I need my fill And baby when you call I just can’t help it I’m right there when you call You’re gonna be my downfall I knew it from the very start The danger waged inside me I could see that you lived in the dark But I thought that if you came with me I could help you see Let you free But now I see that really Baby when you call I just can’t help it I’m right there when you call You’re gonna be my downfall

about

Pax Victoria is a concept album about a fictive character named Victoria whose mundane Californian life was interrupted by an all-consuming love affair that led her into the world of underground crime and having to choose between right and wrong.

The songs describe Victoria's struggles as she faces realities she doesn't want to believe possible and finds a strength she never knew she had.
