Lyrics

Machiavelli’s Daughter



Fragments of eternity

Falling from the sky

She’s become an enemy

A dream about to die



Machiavelli’s daughter

Bound to cause some pain

Soul sold to the devil

Encased in a metal frame



CHORUS

She’s looking for a daddy

Hoping for a mom

We’re all scared of somethin’

The self-destructive wound



Thought rising from the ocean

Ride the currents, surf the waves

Avoiding strong emotion

Live In underwater caves



Electrical short circuit

Bright light won’t last long

She is still manipulating

This feels all wrong



CHORUS

She’s looking for a daddy

Hoping for a mom

We’re all scared of somethin’

The self-destructive wound



BRIDGE

Is there another master

Involved in this disaster?

She’s bonded with the addict

Connected by the drug

Projecting all her anger

Emotion’s deepest dagger

She entertains the old vampire

Taste of human blood



Quantum of dark energy

Stolen from the earth

Fueling her intensity

Turned into a curse



She’s here and then she’s gone.

Sun’s weak winter light

Love fires now are ashes

Cold wind in the night



CHORUS

She’s looking for a daddy

Hoping for a mom

We’re all scared of somethin’

The self-destructive wound
