No time for a Lifeboat As it drags you down by the throat So quickly overthrown There’s no way that you could’ve known Speaking in loose tongues Stale air from their spent lungs Doors closing one by one A false run from the starting gun Clear skies ahead We’re near But we’re going down in flames Don’t let go The enemy within awakes From a flame to the smallest spark Alone & lost in the dark Where no one can hear you cry How long till we say goodbye Clear skies ahead We’re near But the shades of deep red Are smeared We are held by a thread Dismayed There’s no time to be afraid Life will fade

Sometimes I see your skin & wonder what's really going on within It's like I'm cutting you deep inside A war as pain & pleasure always collide It's time we got our feelings outside Its time we tried, & cried I'm here These are my tears Please, why can't we just be straight Don't hold back Let go Before it's too late Lets start mending Or this will be our ending I see you're hurting too I just don't really know what to do All this time you've been thinking That I don't want you That's not true Now I'm here These are my tears Please, why can't we just be straight Don't hold back Let go Before it's too late Lets start mending No pretending Please lets put this right We're always so uptight How'd it take so long for this to ignite But it did tonight It's out in plain sight We've seen the light I don't want you to look at me that way It hurts when I feel that you don't care As I run my fingers through your hair It's like I may as well not be there Surely you must see I'm on your side I can't bare to feel your sadness rise But I know I put those tears in your eyes Oh, all of these years... I've never cried How time flies

Time will forget you So these hearts will turn to stone & pieces float the river long Never hear the same sad old song Time will forget you So imagined it different Another story Forget you Lost to Another Nobody's brother

Faking a slow burn Outgrowing a relief, a surprise A gift, let go Failing to be there To weed out All the grubs, all the dirt That lives in your heart Gather me in, silently Don’t push it to far; it’s pulling free All the suns in all the darkness Can’t light the way back to you Crush all the air from my lungs as I float Away into the nothingness we create everyday It’s just too much to bear Peeling away showing more of the horror & Lifelessly listening to all the sorrow That’s rushing upon us Every week, every year Reddened eyes starved of sleep Won’t hold back our tears Wondering What you do you see underneath? A blanket of snow Or a brief flurry on an afternoon That melts away & Leaves no trace here There’s no time (Everything’s fine) No restart (Everything’s fine) There’s no life In my heart

Watching it break Watching it falter We’ve shed All that we’ve wanted To come true Feeling the weight Still seeking senselessly Descend To the darkest of all deep ends Turn down your light & Hide us from fear & harm A lonely shout From the blackest out We’ll hold on to our love As we fall This isn't me This isn't who I am Dispel this personal hell That’s closing in I am awake I can see all the plots That aim to break our hearts & See that we shake apart Turn down your light & Hide us from fear & harm A lonely shout From the blackest out We’ll hold on to our love But I can hear the alarm bells They’re suffocating me Your voice It sings to me About our destiny As we feel our way Through empty Passageways Contemplate The things we do Who would I be if you Had looked straight through Send your heartbeats Back to me Never let them end Eye to eye Under the ever-blinking lights of The night sky Trembling Awed by the loneliness Of the never-ending Play your sweetest melody Pull me from this aching malady What did you say to me? (Why is it never clear) What did you say to me? (Why do I always strain to hear)

Subtle hue Turned black & blue Awash with grace But tears are welling up Put in their place A wave Come crashing down A shore nowhere to be found The end never too far No trace Not even a scar Drift, Calm, No Harm Turn To watch it burn It's going down Time to let this drown This is the face that I never show Only the horrors linger below Knowing the things I don't want to know Pulled away by the undertow I can't see what's really happening (Give it all for nothing, give it all for nothing) I could lose everything (Give it all for nothing, give it all for nothing) So tired of concealing (Give it all for nothing, give it all for nothing) The silence is deafening (Give it all for nothing, give it all for nothing) What will the new day bring

Memory Don't you fail me now Locked inside a shell Break them out All the notes & words No one's ever heard Have me in a spell There's no doubt Melody Consuming everything but out of sight Remedy for all the lurking madness undefined Late at night Still aglow It just won't let go Shining like the sun Can't be undone Waiting patiently To be set free It will always belong to me (Bringing subtle sweeping waves of harmony) Melody Consuming everything without a fight Therapy for all the creeping sadness in my mind Held so tight (Out of sight) (Out of sight) Each night I'm drawn Deeper into the hours of dawn Playing back to me Singing back to me Melody consuming everything but out of sight It's my remedy for all the lurking madness undefined Melody consuming everything Therapy for all the creeping sadness in my mind Still entwined

Hold your tongue Clip your wings Bury your precious things Beneath a frozen sea Lost for eternity Then you will remain Pure and incomplete Reel it in Split the hairs Taken unawares Empty useless thoughts From your mind Let none hide Prey for the roaming Lone wolf inside Tearing through your pride All that is contained is spilling wide Your skinny little hands are flailing All your silly plans are failing & turning into ash All your fears are feeding On all the bitterness that's breeding With your every sin Aimless in the light Time will haunt you there Endlessly denied Drained & then pushed aside By the turn of the tide

Suffer the rotten war That's spurring us on Follow the warming lights Burning neon Cruising the empty streets Until the break of dawn Flame red of the morning sun Crushing the horizon Fade into black Tears as the credits roll down Burned into the screen My twisted queen Can't be unseen You'll be my harlequin Dance to my song Trapped in a mortal shell But you can't do wrong Batten the hatches down Before we're lost to the storm Feel electric warning signs A prickling of the air Fade into black Tears as the credits roll down Burned into the screen My twisted queen Can't be unseen Paused forever In our final scene A frozen naked stare Hollowed from despair Feeling the ground Beneath our feet Disintegrate Seeing the hounds Bored & unfed Begin to salivate Smelling their last meal Rippling of the water Turns to breaking tidal waves Deeming that there's nothing Left to save I'll be the first To put my head on the block As we count all the seconds Down on the clock Take my hand Feel it shaking As the axe starts to drop Hold me tight Keep on watching As the blood takes flight We were simply born in the wrong time Simply trapped in the wrong minds Lost to all of our senses Always wanting to change shape Knowing that there's no escape Reaching out for the rip chord But still wanting to fall Our lives have never seemed so small Our youth now far behind Innocence now revealed As being the mask of the blind

Cracks appear Parched drifting sands Memories are unclear Of unfinished plans Soon no longer known By our names Banished by naked flame Relentlessly, time will pass We’ll love until the last All we will be The dust underneath Close & still & No in between All we have been A forgotten dream Ties undone But we’re held as one & seen by none Translucent skin Where youth has been Eyes will tire But I smile Because I know We’ll still be the same within Still loving As we watch our whole world go by One last time All we will be The dust underneath Close & still & No in between All we have been A forgotten dream Ties undone But we’re held as one Held as one All we will be… Close & still… All we have seen… Ties undone… Held as one… Held…as time moves on As time moves on

Slowly smother all one by one Onward force of hundreds It all keeps me down, I never saw Behind me was undone. Surrender, smoked my past, The frozen snapshots, parcelled Remember me, you will, but I Have stroked for the last. Trick all of the time, my silver line You were never really mine Trick all of the time, my silver line Always & forever be supine Leaves are falling, I am too Days up and weeks down For years I stuttered and Juddered, lurching onward to the blue I see it all again I guess we’re really all the same Though I am broken, creaking on Just a refrain So trick all of the time, my silver line You were never really mine Trick all of the time, my silver line Always & forever be supine Beats are slowing down now I’m thinking of my last Hold my hand soon I’m leaving I hope it’s fast Please let me sleep Don’t let me weep While you’re still here
