Track Name: The Enemy Within
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
Track Name: Crying Games
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
Track Name: Lost To Another
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
Track Name: Hurricane / All That Remains
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
Track Name: Alarm Bells
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)
Track Name: The Undertow
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
Track Name: Melody
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
Track Name: Lone Wolf
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
Track Name: Harlequin
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
Track Name: Sorro
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
Track Name: Silver Line
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
