Track Name: Silence
Waking up cold in the morning gotta keep moving gotta keep breathing
keep sucking through my teeth I am alive but for the time being
I never wanted anything but this so don't let me down

Let me have, what I want, just once, it's enough
to kick me out, pick me up, steal back the vanity
now we are kept, buried like dead
I never wanted anything but this

But I could try
Silence is our master
Try
Silence is our master

Speak now, throw your words upon me it's a red flag
Begging for a fight, whip crack leave a mark upon
the skin of perfect love is bare
and I never wanted anything but this so don't let me down

I'm always in the way I'm in a state I'm in your slaughterhouse
So let the blood turn the water red and never let them out
Now see the sights, 10 billion lives
their hearts and souls separating at the speed of light

Silence is our master
Try
Silence is our master
Track Name: My Arms Will Open Wide
The fever that falls is the one that will rise again
Secrets are mine, but I won't tell anyone
Mine is a vice, such inconvenience
Picture me now when my motives are meaningless

Stubborn and tired, from things I can never know
Unsatisfied, but I have so far to go
When can I sleep, sink into nothingness
Fighting my way through the wretched unhappiness

Dear, don't tie me down
I belong on another side
with no more reasons to fight
Fade into the blue
My arms will open wide

The voices that speak, I've always been spoken to
If I could wake, I'm sure I'd be open to
Ready to sign, put my trust in anyone
I'd do the time cos there's nothing I haven't done

There is no cure and no remedy
I've no more faith, no precious memories
I'm sorry I failed you when we should have won
But I feel like it's over before it's begun

Even God, he fails me now
Stuck on another side
With all of his reasons to hide
Fake it till it's true
My arms will open wide

His love is so pure
Mine is so tainted, will I be the strangest?
Sinking to the floor
My arms will open wide
