I held my breath for as long as I could We didn’t speak but our eyes understood Silence so holy, we worship the night It’s gonna be fine, alright? Because the ones you knew They always come through Lost in the fires how my mask fell away Sweet suffocation, I grieve as I gave Silence so holy, your eyes made me blind It’s gonna be fine alright, he said It’s gonna be fine alright?

Painkiller 05:04
Wild among the strays This heathen in my arms Of porcelain Silent symphony This heathen of my heart Steal away my pain Now come to me In our hideaway I am pure in his arms And I escape Islands separate A black sun revelates A seal to break Now stay I crawl with my crown of thorns to pray To a God of my own divinity He falls on his knees to worship me I hail to my painkiller

Speak to me mind Pull the creases tight Let this water flow into Align anarchy Athena in me A vision of unending symmetry Nocturne of nine Listens and guides For me to come in Me to come in Flames as I rise In my Icarus eye I’m drawing down the moon out of the sky Is this the shadow coming over me? Cast out the dread How could this happen when we only ever fuck in my head I didn’t mean for you to fall and are we 10 years too late? too late too late, on zero forty eight And now I’ve nowhere left to hide Honey, I’m sick inside And if we don’t tell the truth Could I love someone like you? Is it me? You’re my zero forty-three Speak to me love The language of trust Burn this distance In between our Lives clarified in black paradise I’ll draw you back to me in second sight The clouds are coming over me is this the hour of death? They’re looking back at me and I can barely draw out a breath I’m just addicted to the chaos and all it’s side effects Too late, too late, we’re gone without a trace And now we’ve nowhere left to hide Are we sick inside? And if we don’t tell the truth Could I love someone like you? Is it me? You’re my zero forty-three

He’s my servant lover I love him like a brother I seek out indiscretion Just to get his attention My secret’s bleeding out The chaos and the order Architect and author Obey before I listen Lost in my perdition My secret’s bleeding out You reach for me Your hands are tied We’re on our knees For all our crimes They execute Without a trial The shadow of The world conspires Love, benediction I’m a victim of indulgence Love, lifeless, bears no fruit Lets me lose myself within you Love is an affliction Reaching out without an answer Love leads me up to the gallows noose Makes me lose myself within you

Lady Grey 05:18
She walked into the open arms Of a city laced in grey Her shadow fell upon the farms Feet heavy as they tread She lassoed up those city folks With a clicking of her tongue And made their dreams vermillion And blackened by the sun In our lost lonely cage In the absence of grace We were shadows In our trust uniteth For the faithful mind is Circles five by art For my Lady Grey A sighting at the city gates Was not enough to scare Though children lay awake in bed Her name they do not dare To ricochet her memory And drag it through the mud Her name like nightmare reverie To curse the royal blood In his sleep he would stray To the place where she lay Bloody fingers In her grave she remains But the ghost of her pain It will linger he screams Lady Grey The morning came in mockery A guilty sky in grey The sun rose up like Calgary Lit where the bodies lay I come to claim their innocence For my sister and my son My love will wander back to me And all my sorrows one She’s my Lady Grey

How Do I 03:50
How Do I How do I see How do I know what’s going to happen to you and me? How did get here? How do I leave? How do I stop you saying those awful things to me? How do I tether? How did I stray? How do I take back everything that I say? How do I hold on, when everything changes How I know you know that we have become strangers? How do I speak now, now that you’ve spoken? How do I mend what we have broken? How do I listen through all this commotion? How do I stop these wheels now that they in motion? How I bear this, now that I’m crawling How do I take a step when I’ve already fallen How do we finish what we have started? How can be be together now that we’ve parted?

I’ve got a box of razorblades I hear them shining in the sun I’m going to get myself a bullet I’m going to put it in your gun You’re going to point it to my head dear For all those pretty things you made me do I’ll cut myself away from here Getting over you We’ve got nothing left to live for Yeah you and I are stones You’ve just got that filthy little smile To stop me going home I’m never going home I’ve got a box of razorblades Just like your teeth against my skin I can see your knives are out now But are they ever going in? How well do you think you know me? Can you see a crack or two? I’ve been secretly unfolding Getting over you Don’t you know that love won’t ever be the answer Though you bring me to my knees And if we drowned, we could drink forever Sober I just bleed Sober I just bleed You know I keep your name tattooed across my shoulders If I had a way to serve you better than I would I’ve just got to keep my distance from your calm composure I’d lose it if I could I’ve got a box of razorblades Do you think that I would dare? Dare to end my life this way Without a reason or a care I just wanted you to know me I didn’t think I’d have to choose And watch my dreams become a nightmare I’m never getting over you Sinking through the silence of your answer I feel you in my bones I could have been your angel of protection But I’m better off alone You know I keep your name tattooed across my shoulders If I had a way to serve you better than I would I’ve just got to keep my distance from your calm composure I’d lose it if I could And now I’m just so fucking tired Of always having to be strong If I hadn’t been so stubborn I wouldn’t have to prove you wrong I just keep my candle burning A little flame across the sky I only signed up for a lifetime If you love me let me die

Esmerelda 05:18
We took a trip one night Just you and me I made a lock of your heart Threw away the key We both know how this ends Tread the lines gently, friend I’ll capture you in my caress The cold ink print of happiness Beacons dark, draw me near Taste desire, taste of fear We have no names in this place Choose your leather, lace Esmerelda, black tequila Just another rockstar dreamer You can see her, pay to keep her And her coffee, concertina Esmerelda, I remember We’re just bodies, in between ya She was wiser, I was weaker Ohhhh I don’t want you, to be nice to me So lets sit here and wait, eat misery Travel on, stolen tryst Fragile on your fingertips Grasp me tight, while you can The end is back, where we began Temple cheap, never wake My body will be yours to break Dismantle me, with your touch Pain too little, too much Esmerelda, black tequila Just another rockstar dreamer You can see her, pay to keep her And her coffee, concertina Esmerelda, I remember We’re just bodies, in between ya She was wiser, I was weaker
9.
Hurricane 02:18
You could offer the world But I would choose a cage You could offer yourself But I want you to beg Feels like we’re drowning Never coming up for air You’re the eye of the storm While my hurricane heart beats In your arms safe and warm We can watch the world As it sleeps But it feels like we’re drowning Never coming up for air
10.
Whisper 03:00
Bang bang lover we’re running undercover From the guns of tyranny Don’t look back or you’re turn us into stone This is the revolution of revelry And you said “we’ll get right through this” Just put your heart into it I’ll keep on radiating And I’ll be making Microscopic elevations Ideas above our station Softly spoken whisper Now you’re shouting I can hear ya Shout shout to Xanadoo when you fall I carry you And lead us to a pale victory My my how all walls of Jericho are a-tumblin’ down on our history Pulling through the distant nightmare A pain I’m hungry to share You’re my dirty secret But I won’t keep it Simmering and spilling over Calling every, every quarter I’ll be fire, earth and water Now you’re shouting I can hear ya Free
11.
Ropes 05:27
I’ve seen the ending in my dreams When I’m thirsty, when I’m clean Should we let this happen, for a while? Till we spiral, self-lobotomise She said I could call her Anytime, day or night If I ever felt slipping Quietly out of sight But I’m not gonna call her It’s just not my style Say hello to my shadow Haven’t seen you in a while Tonight, I’m alive Cut these Ropes Let me fall It’s like I survived Let these wolves Through my door I want this, to be eaten by it all I want to float with you in red Now that I’m hanging On every word you’ve said And I’m praying I won’t hurt you I know how much you’ve bled Now we cloud up to the surface Innocence in shreds So now I dream of Daniel In the lions den How I’m fragile for the answer If I’d only known back then We’d be dead in the water I don’t care Say hello to the one Who has always been standing right there Tonight, I’m alive Cut these Ropes Let me fall It’s like I survived Let the wolves Through my door You say that you understand But you do not understand But you will understand Cos I’m gonna show ya That tonight, I’m alive Just a rope, just a cord Tonight, I survived Just a wolf, and his claws I want this
12.
When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast Remember me, remember me, but ah Forget my fate Remember me, but ah Forget my fate Remember me, remember me, but ah Forget my fate Remember me, but ah Forget my fate

Kill No One 04:01
Darling let’s go down to these pits of despair Where the world sold you out when you were unaware Bleeding and bludgeoning they feel us denial It’s a cover up Ain’t it good for us to give them a smile Could you look in a the eyes of another When the lies and the chemicals are in your mouth Your mouth is a key to the heart of the animal Born in mechanical systems now Could you kill someone? Could you kill someone? Could you kill someone? Or let them kill for you Darling lets go down to these syphilitic cells Where the slaves on display drown in their wishing wells Your mask of convenience helps with the smell You can dream of a paradise but this is a hell I don’t care if you say that it’s difficult It’s very very difficult to sympathise When you put little fingers on the trigger with a dirty little shiver of compromise Could you kill someone? Could you kill someone? Could you kill someone? Or let them kill for you Would you trade with the place of another When the fate of the other one was in your hands Your hand will take any deal from the devil All it takes is a little understanding To kill someone To kill someone No I wouldn’t kill no one Or let them kill for you
14.
Bad Blood 04:50
So you wanna be a solider Well I’ll give you a war I was patient and weak and unwilling to even the score But your time is come Your lies are growing old These sinister plans that unfold are so callously cold You’re losing more than I can take The bad blood flowing in your veins You revel in my hurt and mistake I shed you off like skin from snake And you’re not a friend You never were I was wounded you saw me as prey to control and observe But didn’t notice I was growing in wrath While you cross me again and again like a sociopath You’re losing more than I can take The bad blood flowing in your veins You revel in my hurt and mistake I shed you off like skin from snake She’ll remind you of what you never had You think you’ll never pay I’ll fucking find you
