Track Name: Kindling
Alive tonight by the candle light
I’m on fire
Alive tonight in the warm delight
Of desire
Who were we to wear the color white?
Who was I to close my eyes tonight
Hmmmmm
Alive today I can see the face
Of a liar
Alive today in the basement of
An admirer
Who were we to wear the color red?
Bind you up and fire it in
To your head
Hmmmmm
Track Name: Bury My Body
Anticipating what's to come
Coiled up in anger
My body becomes numb
Afraid of something I might find
I need a place to hide
I need a place to comfortably die
Everybody wants to stay alive
But nobody survives the wear of time
bury my body alone
Nothing engraved on the stone
Earth melt the flesh from the bone
No one will care that I’m gone
There’s no way that I can be saved
Afraid of nothing, I step into my grave
Clear conscience and a piece of mind
I found my place to hide
Now walk away and leave me to die
Everybody wants to stay alive
But nobody admits when that’s a lie
Earth tear the flesh from the bone
Earth peel the flesh from the bone
No one will care that I’m gone
Track Name: No Return
Spreading myself thin
Wanna give it up again
Extra time put on a shelf
For when it ends
Knew better than to take this path
Down this one familiar road
But consequences push me
To no return, I can’t return
Never could I find the pleasure in the midst of all the pain
Someone call my name
And dare me to exist
Bleed the pressure from my head
And from my wrists
Outside there’s a blinding light and a false sense of concern
But inside I’m still dying
And I can’t return, I won’t return
Never could I find the pleasure in the midst of all the pain
Call me insane
I won’t return
Track Name: In Spite
Woke in the dark, I can't find my way out of this room,
seems there's no light switch or doors, am I really entombed?
scream through the dark, can somebody please show me the way?
nobody answers, it seems I am destined to stay
So I stay, cause there's karma to pay, and I'm begging today, don't leave me this way....
I cry to the sky
It seems like I have been forgotten and left here to die
But I cannot deny
The beauty of death as my life slowly passes me by
Reaching for something that dissipates into thin air
Anger sets in and there's really no end to my stare
Smiling through pain, a distraction from what I must do
Placing the clouds before living and seeing it through
And there’s more than what I do it for
So please open the door because I need it more
I cry to the sky
It seems like I have been forgotten and left here to die
But I cannot deny the beauty of death as my life slowly passes me by
Track Name: Got To Give
Tear it all apart
Glue it back together
Turn it into art
Mind the gloomy weather
I lie awake... Staring blindly into the dark again
Ill die alone- Somethings got to give
So high, I shake... staring madly into the light again
something's got to give, got to give again
Mouth is full of dirt
Eyes are laced in madness
Tell me where it hurts
Kill me with your sadness
Track Name: Serpentine
Pushing forward in a jagged line
One more number, something else to fill the time
Stumble forward into razor wire
Search for answers, something else to stay inspired... while I’m awake
There’s a door now, I can point you there
Into no one, into something in the air
Falter backwards into your own kind
Out of my view, out of what you left behind
But yesterday
Go.... go now....
This will set you free
Patience is a virtue
I should, I should see through
Moving with an open mind
Fire burning up inside
Climbing faster all the time
Running cause I cannot hide
Running back and forth inside
Walking into suicide
Feeling like a piece has died
Dry and withering inside
Watch it crash and burn this time
Watch us form a shorter line
Watch us slowly fall behind
Watch us slowly fade in time
Go... go now...
This will set you free
Now that I’ve found my new illusion
I’ll be unbound, flying through the falling skies
Into the flames of my confusion
Call me insane, flailing round in my demise
You’ll have to wait
Track Name: Blank Silhouette
Haven’t found the answers yet
Never felt so desperate
Is there more? What’s this for?
Is there any way?
As I sink to the bottom with a lit cigarette in the cold
Just a drip from the bottle just a blank silhouette in the road
Open wounds hold nothing in
Crying down my back again
There’s no one, I’m undone
Cannot walk away
As I sink to the bottom with a lit cigarette in the cold
Just a story of a dead man screaming that’ll never be told
Yea, it’s not over yet
Oh no, no it’s not over
No it’s not over yet
Holding onto something dead
Only leads to dissonance
Don’t hold on to those gone
Let me drift away
Track Name: Where's The Air?
Crazy mind, I am not alone
Trapped inside, hell I call my own
Can’t seem to hold my hands still
Can’t stop the screaming in my head
Can’t seem to let the ghosts out
I’m too Alive to feel so dead
Yea I wanna hold you to your lies
Yea I wanna close your faded eyes
Sit up high paranoia throne
Shake and hide, my how you have grown
Can’t fucking keep the lights out
So cold inside I lock the door
Can’t keep a fire burning
Don’t wanna live this anymore
Where’s the way out?
Where’s the door to leave?
Where’s the way out?
Where’s the air to breathe?
I have wandered from my home
I am lost
I am stuck here in my mind
I am lost
Where’s the way out?
Where’s the way?
Track Name: Bloody Shadow
So good to see you my friend
It’s been a long time, come in
Let’s talk for hours of our past
Make sure that this time isn’t the
Last time you see me
Take my shadow
And We’ll walk wherever you go
Just remember to...
Take my shadow
And we’ll walk hand in hand always
I used to listen to your heart
Until I ripped it all apart
You used to see me as your blood
But that was long before the flood
Took away,
Took away our shadows
Where we fell
Where we spilled our blood and our tears
In our shadows
Where we fall
Hand in hand always
