Track Name: You Or Me
You or Me

I’ve been living in silence far too long.
Bird, fly.
Shadow creeping up behind me
It isn’t safe
To lend yourself to their shame

You’ve already shut the engine down
I’m down again, yea
You’re obviously a hell of a shot
Heart-harpoon
Straight and true
You’ve already run it in the ground
You’re on your own
It’s you or me

I’ve been running in circles much too wide.
Terror die
Shake me
Freezing lurks inside us all
It is insane
To lead yourself into the grave

You’ve already put me in the ground
You’ve jumped the gun again
You always were a step ahead
Heart-cocoon
protect your truth
You’ve already shut all engines down
You’re all alone
It’s you, this me.

Bird, fly.
Shadow creeping up behind me.

Track Name: Safeword
Safeword
Unravel your little secret
You asked me to tie you down
Unfold the rose

You decide where you step off the train
Well, I said now breathe
Our lives are wrapped in a box we made
Yea, so I could consent to revisit days of our little secret
Well, I said lay me down under your rose

You decide where we step off the train
Near pass-out, now breathe
Hot the throttle that slaves
Woman I just wanna save you
A little dose of pain to prove you’re still alive
Because I care
Sink despair for me just one moment more
Hey, hold on love now
If ever again you let me in, I’ll never die
Ooh, I’ll never die, never die

Unravel your little secret
You used to love to be held down
Unfold your rose
High…..

So bottle up the sun love
Believe me it’s a fine line, but that’s what you crave
Whatever it is you want, I’ll do it
It’s a fine line, all that you crave
Tell me all it is you want

No, don’t say it
It’s our little secret
We’ll walk on the sun
We need this just to feel
No, don’t say it
It’s our little secret
Well, never mind pain
I’ll do all it is you want

Track Name: Is It Over Now
Is It Over Now

Purple and black stretched
Thin over fresh wound
Will heal in time
But further inside there’s a brewing within
A boiling stitch that tastes like cider and cyanide

Is it over now
Is it over now

Peeling back layers
I wander through mazes
Prying doors off the hinges bolted within
Breath clouded looking glass
Grinning cat starring back
Aren’t we all just a little mad.

Is it over now
Is it over now
Is it over now
Is it over now

Sew it….up
Sew it up
Sew it…up
Sew it up

Sew this up
Sew this up
Sew this up
Sew this up

Is it over now

Track Name: Bravest Soul
Bravest Soul

And there they are
They just want their control of this
But they don’t understand what this really is
You can’t touch it, you can’t take it
It won’t change or stay the same
A searing light,
So bright, fit to blind a king.
Did a god place this on my hands,
from their greedy paws…
...I may blunder through this, or freeze in a cold lake.
Alone again, I became a sin of some form of grace
And so they say, I’m a lie.
I cannot weigh this on my own.
It came from a…
Far light, (fading),
Fading, it remains
Oh I pray you…save it for, save it for the night.
Save it for the brightest star in this violent rain
It’s kinda like you breathe, I’m high, my head’s unstable.
try but I’m unable…blind me.
Oh, you call out my bravest…
My Bravest soul, bravest soul

Track Name: I'm Sane...?
I’m Sane…?

Only six days since I’ve seen that…
Bright blue ceiling, now haunted by the moon
Only myself and these walls…
I will let confine me, but never you.

Ooh, like evil eyes, these stars burn holes.
They scream my name out in rage.
Ooh, no seven suns and no healing.
There’s nothing left but to run.

Your gift to me…burn, burn.

When all is said and done…
We had a good run, I hear you say.
Alone I seek the meaning for my life today, the chemicals and all.
Ooh, like evil eyes, these stars burn holes.
They scream my name out in rage.

I’m sane.

Ooh, like evil eyes, these stars burn holes.
They scream my name out in rage.
Ooh, no seven suns and no healing.
There’s nothing left to be won.

I’m sane.
I’m sane.
I’m sane…

Track Name: The Blur
The Blur

Faster, come alive
Soothe the chill
Spiral and burn away
Follow you in
It’s only now, oh nevermind
Something’s happening

Something’s happening, huh…
Something’s happening, high-man cruise
Something’s happening someday soon
Something’s happening, some may lose

Numbness, I’m away
Potion feed the muse
Threaded sting and bliss
A race to the thrill
It’s only now, oh nevermind
Something’s happening

Something’s happening huh…
Something’s happening, I may lose
Something’s happening, huh…
Something’s happening, high-man cruise

You come up to me with those see through eyes
An apparition, some just feen to become more real
But can you hear me screaming? Hey!
I wanna hear you scream, right from the passenger seat of your mind
And do you mean it? And could you peel it?
Don’t need a voice of empty shells all ringing out loud
You didn’t heed the fear, I swear this lie
Yea, just ‘cause I said it don’t make it true
And if…in the baggage you’re weighin’, you’re still awake at dawn, you win.
You get to say you’d stay
You get to say you will, but oh well, ooh…
Remember?
Your eyes are getting full
And someday’s here.

Track Name: Come (Explicit)
Come

I want you to, no I need you to sit.
No, no I think you should sit down in that chair and expound upon life, sex, cigarettes, and alcohol.

Don’t bite your silver tongue
Is it what you’ve been told to choose
So this isn’t what you’d hope to find
Or is it, all you’re running from

Come
Fuck what you’re running from
Revel in it
Even dirt’s beautiful

Tell me, are you alive
TV-droid, sleep
The silence numbs
Mold yourself, disguising truth
Speak in lies
A sidelined long gaze, yea
Oh, how deceit thrives
Plant the seeds that won’t die
Your eyes, your high
Oh, a hole inside that only grows

Come
Fuck what you’re running from
Revel in it
Even dirt’s beautiful
Come
What are you running from
Revel in it
Revel in it or run

Run
Run
Come

And I, see your lips moving slowly
By the way, you’re caught in the lie
Spin your web, till you rot away
You know you die every single time you put it off
But it’s fine
When in Rome
Get in line

Track Name: Dichotomy
Dichotomy
A living ghost inside of us
How do you silence the rain
Or maybe it’s all being recycled
Now lady save the day

It’s on the other side
It echoes throughout the night
Lonely, set all that aside
We’re building then burning this down
When the sun meets the night
We will start again

All memories in the grave
We’re rendered silent drones
We all will sober soon you know
Now choose the day you crave

It’s on the other side
It echoes throughout the night
Sad eyes are drying tonight
We’ll cut each other loose
When the stars pierce the sky
Remember it’s only a ride

I’m alright
I’m….I’m alright
I’ll…

Bleed it all out
Burn it all down
The night breeds the day
Bleed it all out
Burn it all down
The night owns the day
Bleed it all out
Burn it all down
The night owns the day
Bleed it all out
Burn it all down
The night owns the day

Track Name: Solace
Solace
11:18
Some cold black night
Let it bleed
Someday you will…
Let in…

A sun that tastes sweet
There’s so much time tickin’, no rhyme or way
La da, da da.
Just own up to it, we’ll put all motives aside
We’ll give it one more day
We seldom take it slow
On our own

The sunlight stings
But it isn’t all that bad.

And some might say you were lost beneath the silent need
To dismantle it all
The solace sinks in so much
We decide to take it one more day
Assume it’s not too late.

Track Name: A Soul's Cry
A Soul’s Cry

Breathe, breathe, breathe
Breathe, breathe, breathe

No one can save me now, and who says I need to be saved
Crawling outside my dead skin
Well I got a storm in my head, you wouldn’t understand
But my machine still runs
No doctor can solve my brain, no pain can stop my heart
No one can see my salvation’s an aching in the night
My what a small price to pay…
Might the truth hit the bones
The sound of a soul’s cry

Who Am I?
Who Am I?
Who Am I?
Who Am I?

Breathe, breathe, breathe.
Breathe, breathe, breathe.
Breathe, breathe, breathe.

No one can save me now, and who says that you can save me
The pain and the strife is the fuel that burns cold in the night
Well I got a song pounding from inside my skull, yea
And I’ll march to that drum.
Peel to the core. Barefoot and cold, walking alone at night in the pelting rain.
Might the truth hit the bones
The sound of a soul’s cry

Who Am I?
Who Am I?
Who Am I?
Who Am I?

All I needed was sealed in my core
(wake up alive, don’t let it die)
I kept waiting for something more
(closing your eyes, passing you by)
All I needed was sealed in my core
(wake up alive, don’t let it die)
But I kept waiting for something more
(closing your eyes, passing you by)
All I needed was sealed in my core
(wake up alive, don’t let it die)
But I kept waiting for something more
(closing your eyes, passing you by)
All I needed was sealed at the core
(wake up alive, don’t let it die)
But I kept waiting for something more
(closing your eyes, passing you by)
I can’t wait for something more.
