Track Name: Only The Fear
“You’re there to watch ‘cause no one else is”

You bled into my hands
Yet you reviled my defence,
You failed to understand
It fuelled the fire for my intents

Break apart the symptoms with lies
Speak of all your demons in rhymes

“You’re there to watch ‘cause no one else is
Trailed by a heart that’s someone else’s”

You bled into my hands,
Yet you reviled my defence

I know the dread that stalks you this time
I left and took your armour with mine
Running head on to oblivion
But we never wanted to change
Only the fear is familiar
Everything else re-arranged

So pray for night to come

Play the part (now) come what may
Heed the words, that show the way

I started edging toward the gun
I started edging toward the gun
The execution left us numb
I’ve never loved you more
So it will end before it’s begun
I told you long before

“You’re there to watch ‘cause no one else is
Trailed by a heart that’s someone else’s”

You bled into my hands
Yet you reviled my defence
You failed to understand
It fuelled the fire for my intents
Pray for night to come
Pray for night to come
Track Name: Circus
We’ve blurred all the faces out of our minds,
We’re immune and drowning them out
We run so afraid, our hands at our sides,
Then resume a diligent line
Am I like the rest? Say it isn’t so

Living in a hideout high up on the ridges we ride
Little did we know the horrors they had fled
Living in a circus full of all the richest delights
Little did we know of how much they had bled

We’ve burned our mistakes but hundreds of times,
We see but make no sound
Am I like the rest? Say it isn’t so

Living in a hideout high up on the ridges we ride
Little did we know the horrors they had fled
Living in a circus full of all the richest delights
Little did we know of how much they had bled

Let them out, let them out Lest we try
Let them out, let them out Feast your eyes

I know the fear that’s inside you, and I can see that it haunts you
I know the fear that’s inside you, and I can see that it haunts you

They will re-live the pain, unto the others gain
They will re-live the pain, unto the others gain

Living in a hideout high up on the ridges we ride
Little did we know the horrors they had fled
Living in a circus full of all the richest delights
Little did we know of how much they had bled

Let them out, let them out Lest we try
Let them out, let them out Feast your eyes
Track Name: Chambers & Valves
I breathed life into an ending foregone,
A choked alliance, we played as one
I would defend the malaise
‘Cause I could decipher your world
A brief revival spawned the way of the gun
You came to fight us
You came and won
I stopped defending that day
I left the spiral to burn

Do you live with the lies?
Are they buried aside the chambers and the valves
Does it rain in your heart?
‘Cause its breaking mine into two

I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes
I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes

You were reluctant to relinquish your hold
You are the keeper of rules untold
And I would lie there in wait
For the venom to do its worst

Do you live with the lies?
Are they buried aside the chambers and the valves
Does it rain in your heart?
‘Cause its breaking mine into two

I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes
I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes

I stand to lose at this your game divine
Teeth clench the skin but I’m benign
I stand to lose at this your game divine
Teeth clench the skin but I’m benign

They will break, you were pushing them right to the edge, till another comes around
They will break, you were pushing them right to the edge, till another comes around

I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes
I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes

They will break, you were pushing them right to the edge, till another comes around
They will break, you were pushing them right
I can see the, I can see the serpents in your eyes
Track Name: The Abandoned Parade
Footsteps echo amidst the abandoned parade
The ravens have fled their nests
I’m aligning the truth with a victim I made
And notions of our luminance

Stop me from begging for the thrill to ride
Stop me from bringing all the dead to life
I heard them saying that the end’s in sight
But I can see you in mine...

I would’ve freed you
But you were draped in fire
Memories revere you
My heart it fuels the pyre

Draw a line in the sand, on the edge we remain
But she will not breathe a word
Through the rise and the fall the addiction pervades
The hunt will devour the girl

Stop me from begging for the thrill to ride
Stop me from bringing all the dead to life
I heard them saying that the end’s in sight
But I can see you in mine...

I would’ve freed you
But you were draped in fire
Memories revere you
My heart it fuels the pyre

The bells return again, signal the rain
The oceans bear the name, of the dead
The bells return again, signal the rain
The eyes are led astray, till the end

My words re-enacted and a judgment defaced from the start, from the start
I’m ever distracted by the oath that you made to depart, to depart

Stop me from begging for the thrill to ride
Stop me from bringing all the dead to life
I heard them saying that the end’s in sight
But I can see you in mine...

I heard the mayday but at last I’m not the same
Not to blame
Track Name: Tides
When this life leaves you uncertain
And the dark beckons your company
Do we hide our deepest secrets?
For the fear of being the last to learn

Never to gain
The cursed and the shamed
The turbulent uprising
Is coming round again

Bound in destiny
A seal in the writer’s blood
Lead my soul away
Take cover the tides have come

When the night’s filled with monsters
And the imagined dark, now matches the real

Death stalks again
His words fell like rain
The turbulent uprising Is coming now to claim

Bound in destiny
A seal in the writer’s blood
Lead my soul away
Take cover the tides have come

I’ve been waiting for you

And we start to fade now, like our steps along the shore
I’ve been waiting for you
And we start to fade now, like our steps along the shore
Track Name: State of Grace
All those of faith, walk the ending this way
All those afraid come to answer (stand upright)
Choose a place on the infinite stage
Kneel to redress our reactions (reignite)

So to breathe,
So to linger,
Or just to run
Our reflections in the rising of the sun
If you believe that he beckons and watches us
Then the writing’s ever present on the wall

We were led here to plead for forgiveness right now
But the guilty and the depraved are drowning us out

Do you really want us to burn?
Have we been such as waste of time to you?

We repent, and redemption is understood
But we hurt ourselves more than you ever could
It’s relief through release as our souls unfurl
Through the motions of the desperate underworld

With the noose to my throat I see clearly right now
As an endless struggle with fear devours my heart

Do you really want us to burn?
Have we been such as waste of time to you?

We belong here
Don’t let the others tempt you away
We belong out here as one

Do you really want us to burn?
Have we been such as waste of time to you?
Track Name: Girl Overboard
You’re hurting all over
You’re hurting all over again
But holding you close I cannot see the holes that the bullets made You’re breaking all over
You’re breaking all over again
You never revealed the disguise, an effigy of the life you craved

Some climb in the dark
To find who they are
Become the world, take on the horizon

We see the dark in your eyes
And I cannot forget the way it pulled you in

The burning is over
She’s late to recover again
Minds linking despite the distance, I feel the pull of the drifter’s pain
A curse it stems from her
The hope will disown her again
Her feet will not bear the listing, girl overboard, our regrets in vain

Some climb in the dark
To find who they are
Become the world, take on the horizon

We see the dark in your eyes
And I cannot forget the way it pulled you in
We see the dark in your eyes
And I cannot forgive the way it pulled you in

The time is now, the onus is on you to start
The time is now, the light is up ahead

I know that for the rest of my life that I cannot release you
Cause you’re my blood and you are not allowed to make an ending here

We see the dark in your eyes
And I cannot forget the way it pulled you in
We see the dark in your eyes
And I cannot forgive the way it pulled you in

The great beyond, is a break that I can’t solve without her,
The great beyond, is a break that I can’t solve without her,
Over, oh hit the light, when it’s over
Track Name: Damage Limitation
How will we survive these killers like us?
How will we survive this killer like you?

The damage limitation was known to compromise the prey
The overfed infection has learnt the way

We had the time to get it right
The tourniquet was good and tight
But now we’re braced for impact here

How will we survive these killers like us?
How will we survive this killer like you?

The antidote relinquished its hold
The troubled minds declare
The remedy has taken its toll, on us

We had the time to get it right
The tourniquet was good and tight
But now we’re braced for impact here

Our nightmares re-enacted
As one by one we’re captured
And you may learn to fight through
But you’ll watch me burn without you, without you

Helpless now we fall
The terrors unfounded

We had the time to get it right
The tourniquet was good and tight
But now we’re braced for impact here
