Track Name: Crimes
Here, walk the line, its the same
Its a never ending drive, to atone, come what may
Just a face to trace the lines
On my own, on my way
Tempting temperamental life
Cause they know its today
And so they say

Crimes
They're the new thieves of the mind
Hail the true chief of the blind
Held it too deep still I can't break jail for Crimes
Like a jewel thief in the night
Gone when you blink is a sign
Hail the true chief
Still I can't break jail for crimes

Fear to define, led away
By a shrinking space I find
Night it glows night is day
What a paradise sublime
Overthrown to unknowns
A conviction burning bright
Cause they know we don't play
And so they say

Crimes
They're the new thieves Of the mind
Hail the true chief of the blind
When its too deep
Still I can't break jail for crimes
Like a jewel thief in the night
Gone when you blink is a sign
Robbing truth-seek
Still I can't break jail for crimes

I failed in my youth
And I'm jailed for the proof
That no ones there this time
Never fake or true
But I'm not that sad to be alright
We'll be alright
Be alright
Be alright
(Don't take it all away)
Be alright
(I'll need it more)

Chorus out

Track Name: Disconnect
Go slow so we all know
In this motion picture scheme
Slowing motion picture dreams
Sweetness, no one likes to
These aren't ordinary things
Do those eyes foretell their need

Missed connections and soul signs
What's harder to see?
Disconnect from it one time
How hard can it be?
We just don't know
We suffocate
It tears apart
Its all in vein
So where's the heart?
Two worlds apart...
Should we depart..
Our world goes dark

Found out all about you
As it races up my spine
None left chasing hope for time
Sickness, no one likes you
We become less to the like
As it feeds more to the lie..
Track Name: Testify
All of the lights are so far away
All of the lights are following me
When we become what we're gonna be
Will we succumb or will we believe?
All of the lies are fading away
All our tomorrow's could never repay
Sail on tomorrow to where we'll be free
Say what the cost is or just let me be
(It's testing me)

No one to testify
No one can help us we're on our own
No one gets out alive
No one can enter the perfect throne

All of the time its been ticking away
Just like the sign on we're leaving today
And I can't get over all that it means
Over and over, is it testing me?
(It's testing me)

No one to testify
No one can help us we're on our own
No one gets out alive
No one can enter the perfect throne
Lowered to death in spite
Normal to sickness no disregard
Mirror the breath of life
Fear is the end of time

Is it the end of time
Is it the end of time
Is it the end of time
Is it the end of time
Is it the end of time
I'm slowly out my mind
Something's you can't define
Like its the end of time
Don't waste your illusion
I'll take the further line
Drawn out on no conclusion
For no sake the sacred sign

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Whatever It Takes
There's another sound and another way
Misplaced by grey thrones
There's another round and another day
I'm unphased and they know
In another time and another place
I'd chase and they'd go
Write another line for another space, does the taste make you gloat?
Getting high above all naivety
Your face it stays strong
Would you ever hide when they look away,
life is laced come play on
Some would wanna fight, some would complain
but I'm faced with hang on
Some would wanna find what they could've made,
in this haste im way gone

So what does it take to go on
And how many days till we go
Whatever it takes we'll be strong
Whatever it takes till its gone
So how many ways to move on
And how many days till we know
Whatever it takes we'll be strong
Whatever it takes till its gone

Theres No on here so it never collides
Won't you take a stand,
always wanna bend,
its the shame that divides
Now you gotta know that I'm turning blue
though I'll say I'm alright
And you gotta know that my heart was true
without sense in these eyes
All it ever is all it ever was
just a clever disguise
All it ever did all it ever caused
Was insanity times
Don't know what I did,
what have I become?
What's fair among lives
Falling out with bliss,
calling out the woes
But instead its sublime

So what does it take to go on
And how many days till we go
Whatever it takes we'll be strong
Whatever it takes till its gone
So how many ways to move on
And how many days till we know
Whatever it takes we'll be strong
Whatever it takes till its gone

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Chemicals
And I pray for the paralyze embattled inside me
Follow its critical eyes, that's how you know
I don't recall this but to the sound I'd
Give to tonight I'd worship the ground
Then all I remember all I could think
Was break it tonight, take it tonight

Freedom from chemicals
We should know when life abounds
Freedom for this I will
We should own this life again

As I step to the pace of our time
All that consuming
Whatever trace you might find, that's how it grows

I don't deny this
So hard to fight this
On my way down then I'm up to retry this
All that I know is
All that I am says
Break it tonight, Make it tonight

Freedom from chemicals
We should know when life abounds
Freedom for this I will
We will own this life again

Life again...life again..life again.
Hold me into the space that you haunt me
Chemicals only like zombies
On our own

Cause no one gets away
Teach them not to take
These chemicals restrain
Feed upon our brains
They take and take away
Lead us not astray
So no one gets away
This is what I pray

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: $ellout
Why chase the agony
Bitter best with apathy
Damage testing all on me
Crushing torn disorder
Blood stains upon my sleeve
Leaving marks of suffering
Changing what you cannot see
Changing what is real

They're selling out out vision
And selling out our lives
They're selling out our vision
Into the night

Lie colder than belief
Leave these scars with all I bleed
Leaving marks of suffering
Changing all of me

They're selling out our vision
And selling out our lives
They're selling out our vision
Into the night

I waited for something I'll never be
And I don't care there's nothing to hold
I waited for this love to take my hands away, my tears decayed
And I hold my breath, there's sonewhere left to go

Every...day...a...nightmare
Track Name: Ephemeral
Its all so ephemeral
So constant and incredible
And though we're never dead or alive
We'll all be seen
Its all ephemeral
But no one ever tells you though
So know that whether dead or alive
We'll all be seen

You don't have to go and give out
Burn the memories and live now
Its all been torn away
Let the cold wind start to take
Light the soul left under splinter
Like the memory golf winter
Now we turn the stone away
So the darkness starts to fade

[CHORUS]

In the past we've taken slumber
Not as thine to take you under
Mislocated hearts take shape from the blackest parts
Night divine and lives are gifted
Night is warm and eyes are lifted
I guess that's how it starts
Till the black skies paint in hearts

If you had no trace inside
If you had no place to hide
Soul I'd know you'd say
Soul I know its me
If you had no trace inside
If you had no peace of mind
Soul I know you'd say
Come along with me

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Sinkhole
All that I am, all that we are
Everything till the end
We make it hard in every part
But later will defend

I'm sinking inside this terrible mind
I'm all out of answers but the memory is dead
I'm sinking inside this terrible time
I'm all out of nothing
Somethings forcibly fed
I'm sinking inside...

All that we hold
And all that we dont
All of it till the end
We take our time
And recognise
We're fatal to pretend

In sinking inside this terrible mind
I'm all out of answers cuz the memory is dead
I'm sinking inside this terrible time
I'm all out of nothing somethings forcibly fed
I'm sinking inside...

We know the way inside our shapes and shaping out
We know today that there's this space we've ever found
Come on we've got to get this down
Or we're sinking

I'm sinking inside this terrible mind
I'm all outta answers cuz the memory is dead
I'm sinking inside this terrible time
Whatever it happens cuz its already dead....im sinking inside

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Masquerade
Nothing sane here lies
Just a sight for soreful eyes
Watch the words that you say
So you'll never forget hers
When did we go blind?
All these days no sound or sign
Time is slipping away
But tomrorrow no pressure

Hey bastard wait you're wrong
They masquerade then gone
emancipate ten thousand days
Gone away so long

Now its cold as ice
And we're older than unknowns
Just to hear what you'd say
Such a stunning impression
What a cold felt lie
To be dazed without all hope
Time is wasted away
Still tomorrow no pressure

Hey bastard wait you're wrong
They masquerade then gone
Emancipate ten thousand days
Gone away so long
Hey bastard wait you're wrong
They masquerade then gone
And that's the way that light attains
When all its stains absorb

They masquerade so long
They masquerade so long
Emancipate so long
Emanicipate so long

Hey bastard wait you're wrong
They masquerade then gone
And that's the way that life it plays
When all your days are done

Hey bastard wait you're wrong
They masquerade then gone
Hey bastard wait you're wrong
Emancipate so long

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: True Faith
I feel so extraordinary
Somethings got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care cause im not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is a drug that brings me here
To a childhood I lost replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

I was once so small and lonely
Barely knew why talk is cheap
Now that life feels strange and older
All its stains bleed dark and deep
That's the price that we all pay
The value of destiny comes to nothing
I can't tell you where we're going
I guess there's just no way of knowing

[Chorus]

I feel so extraordinary
Somethings got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
Chances are we've gone too far
You took my time and you took my money
Now I fear you've left Me stranded
In a world that's so demanding

[Chorus]

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Calling Us Away
I don't mind the tried and true
The days go by without a clue
Night goes red while light goes blue
And its calling us, calling us away
Yeah its calling us, calling us away
Here they come to say goodbye
With that evil in their eyes
Was I blind, too blinded?
Hard to fight it
Wrong to right away, its calling us...

Tainted hearts and stupid jokes
These days I know a lot of folks
And they say 'why can't you get it right'
When its calling us, calling us away
Yeah its calling us, calling us away
Yeah its calling us, calling Us away
Yeah its calling us away
I just wanted to relay
All the sin in my eyes
The thin in the hope
Wait for the signs that I never get shown
No problems, gotta be..
Yeah they're calling us
Calling us away.....

Night goes red
Light goes blue
These days I know
A thing or two
I don't mind it
I don't mind it
I don't mind it
No I don't mind it all

+ + + + + + +
Track Name: Clues
Tomorrow we'll chase away
All of the colors surrounding the gray
I don't think that way
Follow the clues to wherever they lead
Tomorrow we'll face the day
Follow you home to wherever you bleed
Take a piece of me
This parasite silence is violence in me
(I don't mind the thought of you)
