Volcano (Crispin Hellion Glover)
By Izzy Novak

V1

We breathe
In the sweetness of this
Release
You spread me down & under
You say
I cry like a dove in mourning
We're high
Experimenting with the
Wide space
Of this atmosphere
My pain
It takes me over now I'm hungry
So I say

CH1

Open your eyes look at me
Watch me weep as I
Open my eyes
Watching you take me down
You light the spark
Now I'm a fire
Now I'm a volcano
I'm waiting for Eruption
But I'm waiting for another moment

V2

You feel
Cold metallic steel
But you're hot when you reach the edges
Beyond, oh my love
It's indescribable
Explain if you can for me
The feel and the intensity
When I'm lit
And I'm burning all around you
And I say:

CH2

Open your eyes look at me
Watch me weep as I
Open my eyes
Watching you take me down
You light the spark
Now I'm a fire
Now I'm a volcano
I'm waiting for Eruption
But I'm waiting for another moment

Define for me
If you can
The "What It Is And How It Is Done'
That you do this with me
I say: 'It's like worlds on worlds
Or an explosion'
And you say:
'It's un-definable...the words...
Have yet to be invented.'

Barbarella As A Boy

By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry)

Sign the dotted line
Then you were mine
A possession for me to adore
New metallic toy for my private joy
Barbarella as a boy
Programmed all for me
Mecca frequently
And mechanically tuned into me

(Chorus)
Want me- always, need me- now
Hold me- always, need me- now
Want me...need me
Want me...need me

I'm so drawn to you
Automatic you do
Anything I could ask of you
Circuits in your spine
Cybernetic mind
Say the words...then you grind
Your skin is smooth
And the way that you  move
So precise...but no life in you!
(Chorus)

Hold On
By Izzy Novak

Under the black ice,
Under the water is where you sleep
You share your bed with fishes and darkness
It feels like winter to me
White snow is falling over you
I haven't seen your sweet face in 100 years

(Chorus)
Hold- hold on
I'm coming for you
I'm in a dead zone

Down at the bottom
The rocks and the sand are your pillow
I imagine your pretty eyes are staring wide
Are you lonely there?
All the years have come and gone
But I will wait for you
As water whispers lullabies

(Chorus)
Hold- hold on
I'm coming for you
I'm in a dead zone
Hold on
I'm breaking in through
I'm in a dead zone

Your cosmic energy calls to me
You're saying 'breathe'
You're calling to me:
"Rescue me, I want to leave"
Under the water, under the sand
But still asleep
Moving in water, inhaling ice
Inside me creep
I'm calling to you
Paranormal in my sleep
I'll make you breathe...
Breathe breathe breathe for me

Stretched over the ice I lay
Hearing you closer I come to you
Cracking and falling face first
Sinking through
Ohhhh...anticipating
I'm coming for you
I am sinking in
I am drowning and blue

(Chorus)

Sleepless
By Izzy Novak

There's a hole inside of you
And you sit and wait
There's a hole inside of you
And it is what you made
But you're lonely- you're so lonely
You are lonely

(Chorus)
Sleepless- do you know what you're looking for
Sleepless- do you know what you're looking for

Or it's across the street
Or it's who you meet
That takes away
From what you think think today
What do you think today?...I say

(Chorus)

Oh...you're such a funny thing
Oh...you can't say anytyhing

There's a hole inside of you
And you sit and wait
There's a hole inside of you
And it is what you make
But you're lonely- you're so lonely
You are lonely

(Chorus)

Spin
By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry)

"Shine on me" is what she said
We stood there laughing
Cause we're the brightest stars
We wanted the girl
Cause she was different
But they all look different, don't they?
At first, you see
We let her follow us
We let her want us just a bit
We tuned into her
And took her for a spin

It's in you- we need you
We got you now baby
Got you now baby
It's in you and we ove you
Got you now baby

'Give me time' is what she said
We let her see who we are-
Showed her our face
We tried to love her up
We tried to buff her up
But before we knew it at all
We'd fucked it up
We weren't laughing anymore
No this was serious
We had to drive the light out of her
Keep it all for us

It's in you we need you
We got you now baby
Got you now baby
It's in you we love you
Got you now baby...
Got you now honey

Swallow Me
By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry)

Over we go through the night
Just like you said it would be
The sky explodes with light
Just like you said it would be
Spitting fire oh it's so bright
Oh it's just like you said it would be

If you lift me on your shoulders
I will ride there so high
If you tell me any secrets
I will hold them til I die
Let me look in hungry eyes
And I will feed them with my soul
Open up the lonely mouth
To swallow me whole

You've told me a secret
You're not supposed to tell me
Ooh that's part of the plan, yeah

Under we go
While it rains red
Over the wide field
Others are watching and
There's a sense here that is unreal
Eyes are focussing on me
Is this how you said it would be?

They're building a secret
I'm not supposed to tell you
Oh but I'm part of the plan, yeah!

Sister
By Izzy Novak

Oh my sister
I think of the time you lent me yours
I lent you mine, babe, and then we switched
And we could not tell which was which
Oh my sister
Remember how we'd run wild
Over the hills and the looks we got
Oh, we didn't give a damn what they thought
Oh my sister
I think of the time I was good
But you were bad so I was bad too
And that is a thing I love about you

You, yeah
I say you, you, yeah

Oh my sister
Think of all the secrets through the years
You tell me yours and I tell you mine
Feels so good to have you near
Oh my sister
I love the way you make me smile
When I am sad, yeah, you make me laugh
And I know you'd run that extra mile
Oh my sister
Remember how we held our ground
We saw our stars and they saw us too
I couldn't have been more proud of you

You, yeah
Oh I said you, you, yeah

Oh my sister
Come on baby tell my future
Look at my palms and tell me what you see
Is there a long road ahead of me
Oh my sister
Would you read my cards like I've read yours
And if they fall the wrong way up
Oh hell yeah we both know my luck
Oh my sister
Do you really believe in all my dreams
When they are bad you say they are just dreams
But when they are good you say they'll all come true

True, yeah
Like they do for you, yeah
It's what I love about you
It's what I love about you
What would I do with you
Yeah

Coming Down
By Izzy Novak (with December)

Sometimes, sometimes he's like an angel
With bat wings,
And too much mean streak to fly
He's waiting, as wackiness ensues
He's just watching the shadows dancing on him

(Chorus)
All that is dead is in the past, except for you
So find yourself the time to get away
Broken bones and glass I give to you
So find yourself the time to get away

To snuff life, is that really what he...
Wants here- to live among the watchers
And does he exist the way we know exist
Waiting with wings as black as Sunday night
And is he happy? To live among the mortals

(Chorus)

You swallow the whole world
And you swallow me whole
Oh just to touch you, to feel you
Just to want you
One hard gulp and I'm gone...

School is hard- is that what you remember
And do you remember that railroad spikes
Come in handy...for snuffin' out the mortals
With your big hands
Anything to feed the hunger!
(Chorus)

Copyright Izzy Novak, 1998






Johnny, You're An Angel
By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry)

Your tongue is jagged, I'm intertwined
My body's wet- I'm shutting down
It's under darkness, I'm cold white light

(Chorus)
Johnny you're an angel
I wanna be there when you exorcise the ghost
It's under darkness, I'm cold white light
I wanna be there when you exorcise the ghost

I've never seen such eyes & hard the flesh
Cold bed of black I offer ice
Come frost your heart & warm mine

(Chorus)
I wanted fire to warm my cold heart
You wanted ice to douse the flames
I will be anarchy
You'll be organized freedom

(Chorus)
Fire!
Fire!

Copyright Izzy Novak, 2001


One Good Reason
By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry))

Hold my heart at bay
While you drift away from me
Tell me honestly
Where do you think we go from here?
I can't do what you ask me to do
I'm not here to watch you lose

Give me one good reason
To wanna help you
Give me one good reason
To ever wanna love you
Give me one good reason
To ever trust you

I have cried for you
Give the sky fo ryou
If I could get through to you
See you face to face
Make amends to erase
If I could get through to you

It's all in your hands
I can't make demands of you
One thing as you go
Let me look in your eyes and know
I won't find the right thing to say
I can only ask you to stay

Stand by me

Copyright Izzy Novak, 2002


Kismet
By Izzy Novak (with Devil May Cry)

While I am sleeping
You slip in and wake up a new world
You are like a sandman
Sliding through me
Razor sharp but soft to me

Black drawn blue eyes
Leather and lace
Whatever vision
I want to see

Dangerous play-thing
Silence my sighs
Navel and thighs
Shivering

I must be dreaming
You are
I must be dreaming
Wake up
I must be dreaming
He is here

Nightmare in disguise
I summoned this
Gleaming demon
Over me

Loving you is
Like loving the dead
An evil thing
No more

If I run will you
Catch collide
Match my stride
Take over

I must be dreaming
You are
I must be dreaming
Wake up!
I must be dreaming
Now!

Smother me in
Cold embrace
Cover my face
Open and enter
Fast as light
Blind my sight
Never awaken
Slaughter

Kiss me kismet
You kiss me kismet
You will me kismet to
Keep me dreaming

If I wake up
Worlds collide
You'll divide I
Conquer you!

I must be dreaming
Wake up
I must be dreaming
You are not
I must be dreaming
You're not leaving...

You Said
By Izzy Novak

You said you wanted a stalker
So I obliged in my polite way
You said you wanted a mother
I pulled you out of my womb hungry

(Chorus)
Say you want me
Say you love me
Say I'm everything  you ever wanted x2

You said you wanted a teacher
So I taught you to love
You said you wanted a lover
So I let you- take me

(Chorus)
Say you love me
Say you want me
Say I'm everything you ever wanted x2
You said you wanted a stalker...
Say you want me...
