and Music is the wound.
Blood is the essence of our life,
stored in our heart,
pierced by the song.
And it is pain that frees our blood
to bleed and drip and run,
to live outside the confinement of our hearts,
and to stain the garments of our world.
Music is the pain that frees our lives to bleed.

Store it in an open casket,
Cook it in a microwave.
Set the dial for an hour,
Add some yeast, and then some flour,
Cook until it's soul baked bread

-The initial stress position of a word is on the first syllable, but can be moved by using the acute accent over a vowel, as in Spanish
-The plosives [b] and [d] have morphed together with [p] and [t]. (Samara says that 'Ar[d]at-Yakshi comes from a dead Asari dialect)
Asari has 4 cases: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, and Genitive. These are marked in nouns by prefixes
Nominative Case: This case has no marking, so a bare noun always sigifies that it is the subject
Accusative Case: The accusative marking is the prefix [sa-]

Double Base 3/9
Numbers are grouped by both 3's and 9's, in both speech and symbols. This has its roots in the people's observation of the planet's two moons, one of which rises and sets 9 times in a day, and the other other of which rises and sets 3 times in one day (for reference, one day of Cigglai time is equal to a little over 19 Earth days).
Unary means that their numeral symbols work like tally marks. Positional means that the symbols are arranged in columns that denote powers, such as 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, &c. For example, in base-10, you have the ones place (100), the tens place (101)

In Lana culture, family is not strictly the people who are blood related to you. "Adoptions" or ramadioa are frequent and occur at any age, during which an individual is brought into a family through both formal and informal legal means. People frequently address each other by name preceded by a kin-term even if they aren't legally or genetically related.
If you don't know their name, you can get away with calling almost anyone within 10 years of your age in either direction Mofema, a word which refers to a difficult-to-trace-relation, lateral in-law, or cousin. A

There are many different types of word order. In some language, such as English, word order shows the subject and the object(s) of a sentence. In other languages, it's just a common pattern. The language which I've encountered with the strangest patterns of word order is German.
Often they categorize the word orders by the position of the Subject (S), Object (O), Verb (V). For Example English is a standard SVO, or subje

Is it because
I know I don't have a chance
With either one of you
But it'd be nice if just for once
Someone liked me too
I know you're legal
But I don't care
We won't get caught
I'm not scared
I'm all cards to win

Side by side
So I can size you up

Indecision clouds my vision
How about you fight over me
Cause if it was my choice
I'd pick polygamy
Why can't boys be
Black and white
Why can't I see how they feel
They claim to be so simple
But I can't figure out
What they're faking
Or what's real

Hold me like the mortals do
Sing me a lullaby

Your lips upon mine,
Even gods have a soul,
And I'm just one of them nine.
I'll dance my prayer,love.
Go forward and never turn
All this time,I thought,
This city will burn.
Who knew his arrow would break?
No one asked can gods cry.
His tears will drown us,
Give me your love,teach me to fly.
Cupid's tears touched my skin.
It made a red scar.
His wings are almost gone.

But you held me there

I have suffered without you.
I have cried too many pointless tears.
I have worried, and thought, and questioned.
I have countless physical and emotional scars
because of you.
I was too anxious to realize
Aren't even worth my time,
If I wasn't worth yours.
You call yourself my father,
You are by blood,
but that's all you are.
You are my father.
You are a critic.
You are a monster
only linked to me
by blood and DNA.
The monster part of me,
Is your entire being.
You are all my pain.
