Track Name: Hold Your Breath
Hold Your Breath

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?
Track Name: Painkiller
Painkiller

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
Track Name: ZeroFortyThree
Zero Forty Three

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
Track Name: The World Conspires
The World Conspires

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 is an addiction
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
Track Name: Lady Grey
Lady Grey

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
Track Name: How Do I
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?
Track Name: Box Of Razorblades
Box of Razorblades

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’e 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
Track Name: Esmerelda
Esmerelda

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
Ohhhh
Track Name: Hurricane
Hurricane

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
Track Name: Whisper
Whisper

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
Track Name: Ropes
Ropes

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
Track Name: Kill No One
Kill No One

Darling let’s go down to the pit 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

I wouldn’t kill someone
Wouldn’t kill someone
No I wouldn’t kill no one
Or let them kill for me
Track Name: Bad Blood
Bad Blood

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
