Lyrics

HYPNOS

I AWOKE IN A DREAM
AN EVIL ONE, A SETTING SUN
I LICKED YOUR HATRED 
YOU SET ME FREE 
IN SUMMER, IN THE BOILING BLOOD
OH BABY, I’LL CARRY YOUR DISEASE
THAT DARKNESS THAT LIVES INSIDE YOU DEEP
OH HONEY, I’LL PUT UP A FIGHT WITH DEATH 
HE’S NEVER COMING NEAR MY LOVE AGAIN
ALL THE WORLD MOVES INSIDE MY BABY,
I SEE IT THERE
ROWS AND ROWS, MOUTHS OF FJORDS –
I SWIM IN THEM IN MY DREAMS
OH BABY, I’LL CARRY YOUR DISEASE
THAT DARKNESS THAT LIVES INSIDE YOU DEEP
OH HONEY, I’LL PUT UP A FIGHT WITH DEATH 
HE’S NEVER COMING NEAR MY LOVE AGAIN

FLAME

WELL I WAKE UP ANOTHER DAY
KNOWING I LOST YOU ALONG THE WAY
WHEN YOU CAME FOR ME I WAS NOT READY
WHEN YOU CALLED I WAS NOT ABLE TO MOVE 
WHEN I RAN FROM YOU I LOST MY HEAD
THOUGHT I COULDN’T BELONG TO ANYONE
AND THE ANGER FLOWED LIKE A RIVER
AND THE WATER TASTED LIKE YOUR LOVE
BUT WE’RE GONNA RUN
AND WE’LL CHASE THE SUN
ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE WEST
WHERE WE’RE FROM
HOW COULD A NAME CARRY SO MUCH WEIGHT?
I HEAR IT CALLING ME AWAKE 
I HEAR THE RHYTHM OF YOUR HEART
OH MY DADDY YOU TEAR ME APART
OH MY DADDY, MY DESERT STAR
MUST BE SO LOVELY WHEREVER YOU ARE
AND YOUR FLAME IT STAYS INSIDE MY HEAD
IT MAKES EVERYTHING ELSE SO DIM
BUT WE’RE GONNA RUN
AND WE’LL CHASE THE SUN
ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE WEST
WHERE WE’RE FROM

ABYSS

CARRION FLOWERS

WE LEARNED HOW ON OUR OWN
NEVER NEEDING HELP FROM YOU
REACHING OUT WITH EYES CLOSED
WE FELT THE LIGHT, IT TAUGHT US TO GROW
(HOLD, HOLD, HOLD ON)
CREATURES OF HABIT, CARRION FLOWERS
GROWING FROM REPEATED CRIMES
THE AFTERGLOW IN FULL BLOOM
SLOW AND RELENTLESS, WE’RE AFTER YOU
HOLD ON TO THE PAIN
OF LOVE TAKEN FROM YOU –
A PLAGUE
(HOLD, HOLD, HOLD ON)

DRAGGED OUT

BABY, THEY DON’T WANT YOU
THEY ONLY WANT TO TEAR YOU APART
THEY BELIEVE IF THEY DRINK YOU THEY’LL BE LIKE YOU
IT’LL NEVER END
THE DRAG WILL KEEP ON COMING
DRAGGED OUT IN THE WEATHER
DRAGGED OUT IN THE MADNESS
DRAGGED OUT IN YOUR LONELINESS
SOMETIMES I WANNA LOSE MY MIND,
LOSE MYSELF
SOMETIMES I WANNA
LOSE MY MIND,
LOSE MYSELF TO SOMETHING
TO SOMEONE ELSE
WON’T YOU TAKE ME DOWN
I’M SO TIRED, I’M SO TIRED
DRAGGED OUT IN THE WEATHER
DRAGGED OUT IN THE MADNESS
DRAGGED OUT IN YOUR LONELINESS

IRON MOON

A DEAD SUN, A PALE GLOW
UPON THE WALLS I FEIGN TO KNOW
WE BEAR NO FRUIT, NO FLOWERS, NO LIFE
AND WE GET SICK BUT NEVER DIE
BECOME AN ECHO
RESOUNDING “LET GO”
MY HEART IS A TOMB
MY HEART IS AN EMPTY ROOM
I’VE GIVEN IT AWAY
I NEVER WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN
I GO TO HIM IN PATHS OF DREAMS
IN BED AWAKE WITH SHADOW BEINGS
THEY CRAWL INSIDE AND WAIT WITH ME
THE CREATURES HERE BECOME MACHINES
WALK WITH ME TO A PLACE OF TRUST
DEATH WILL NO LONGER SILENCE US
MY HEART IS A TOMB
MY HEART IS AN EMPTY ROOM
I’VE GIVEN IT AWAY
I NEVER WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN
AND ALL YOUR WORDS COULD SAVE ME
BUT KEEP YOUR LOVE AWAY FROM ME
IN ALL THE WORLDS DECAYING
IS THERE PLACE THAT’S SAFE FOR US?
MY HEART IS A TOMB
MY HEART IS AN EMPTY ROOM
I’VE GIVEN IT AWAY
I’VE SWALLOWED THE IRON MOON
MOON, MOON

MAW

WHERE ARE YOU
WHERE ARE YOU
WHERE ARE YOU
WHERE ARE YOU
IN THE MAW
SHATTERED TEETH
UNDERNEATH A
DRIPPING TONGUE
I’VE BEEN WAITING
IN THIS SILENCE
WHILE YOU’RE SLEEPING
UNTIL YOU BELIEVE
WHERE ARE YOU
WHERE ARE YOU
IN THE MAW
IN A WORLD SO DIRTY
INTOXICATED
A LIFE OF TEARS
IN THE MAW
A WORLD IN A DAZE
NONE CAN BE TRUSTED
IN THE MOUTH OF THE BEAST
I’VE BEEN WAITING
IN THIS SILENCE
WHILE YOU’RE SLEEPING
UNTIL YOU BELIEVE
I’VE BEEN WAITING
IN THIS SILENCE
I’M ON FIRE
I’M ON FIRE

GREY DAYS

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE I BEEN SLEEPING?
NOBODY EVER SAID I WAS ALIVE
WHY DOES EVERYTHING FEEL SO UNNAMED?
THE POISON INSIDE HELPS ME ALONG
GREY AND HOLY
YOU SAID IT WAS THE FIRST TIME
LIKE THE MORPHINE
YOU TAKE IT ALL AWAY
PRETEND IT’S OK
THE GREY DAYS
LOST INSIDE THE RIVER STYX
I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO RUN
NO HUNGER, NO FEVER, NO LOSS, NO WAGER
COULD WAKE YOUR MIND
HOW MANY YEARS HAVE I BEEN SLEEPING?
HOW MANY HOURS DID I THROW AWAY?
WHY DOES EVERYTHING FEEL SO UNNAMED?
THE POISON INSIDE HELPS ME ALONG
GREY AND HOLY
YOU SAID IT WAS THE FIRST TIME
LIKE THE MORPHINE,
YOU TAKE IT ALL AWAY
PRETEND IT’S OK –
THE GREY DAYS

AFTER THE FALL

NOTHING WILL KEEP US APART
I SAID NOTHING WILL KEEP US APART
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL FIND ME THERE
AFTER THE FALL
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE WAITING
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL FIND ME THERE
AFTER THE FALL
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE WAITING
READY TO RUN
CHASING THE SUN
I CAN’T WAKE UP
SCREAM AND RUN
DON’T LET THEM WIN
NOTHING WILL KEEP US APART
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL FIND ME THERE
AFTER THE FALL
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE WAITING
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL FIND ME THERE
AFTER THE FALL
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE WAITING
READY TO RUN
CHASING THE SUN
I CAN’T WAKE UP
SCREAM AND RUN
DON’T LET THEM WIN
NOTHING WILL KEEP US APART
GO ON, DRIVE INTO THE MORNING
NEVER GIVE UP
NEVER GIVE IN

CRAZY LOVE

CRAZY LOVE, IT’S NOT YOU I FEAR
YOU LET THE DEVIL IN
YOU HOLD HIM NEAR
CRAZY LOVE, WHEN DID THE WAR BEGIN
WHEN WILL IT END
WHEN WILL IT END
CRAZY LOVE
AND I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU
CRAZY LOVE, WHERE IS OUR HOME
LOOK AT THE PLACE WE’RE IN
THE HELL WE LEFT IT IN
CAN WE FORGET OURSELVES
CAN WE FORGIVE
CAN WE AFFORD THE YEARS, MY LOVELY FRIEND
CRAZY LOVE
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU

SIMPLE DEATH

SIMPLE DEATH FEELS INFINITE
COMPARED TO THE END OF IT ALL
DARK, DARK WORLD
DANGEROUS RELIGION
AND ALL WE HAVE LEFT TO LEARN
EMPTY WITHIN, EMPTY WITHOUT
SURROUNDED AND ESTRANGED
SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW
IF I’LL FIND THE ANSWER
OR IF
I’VE EVER ASKED THE QUESTION
SOME NIGHTS I KNOW I’LL FIND THE ANSWER
IN SILENCE
I HEAR IT CRY
LOST AND ALONE IN CONFUSION
I’M SCREAMING
BUT I CAN’T WAKE UP
WE LOOKED AROUND
AND ALL WAS DEAD
OUR ROTTING BODIES SO DEEPLY IN LOVE
EMPTY WITHIN, EMPTY WITHOUT
BUT A VOICE KEEPS ON WHISPERING:
BLUE HAZE
WHITE LIGHT
A DESERT STORM
MIDNIGHT
BLUE HAZE
WHITE LIGHT
A DESERT STORM
MIDNIGHT
THE ROADS BECOME RIVERS
THE WATER STARTS TO RISE
LET ME SWIM
I’M SO SCARED TO FIND..
SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW
IF I’LL FIND THE ANSWER
OR IF
I’VE EVER ASKED THE QUESTION
SOME NIGHTS I KNOW I’LL FIND THE ANSWER
IN SILENCE
I HEAR IT CRY
LOST AND ALONE IN CONFUSION
I’M SCREAMING
BUT I CAN’T WAKE UP
THE END OF THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL

SURVIVE

YOU SAID YOU WON’T BREAK MY HEART
UNLESS YOU DO
YOU SAID YOU WON’T FALL APART
UNTIL THE END
DID WE TRAVEL ALL THIS WAY
JUST TO SURVIVE
DID YOU STAY ANOTHER DAY?
WE COULD SURVIVE
ALL THE SINNERS AND THE SAINTS
MOVE IN THE SAME DIRECTION
THEY WALK IN PLACE
UNTIL THE END
RAMBLE ON THIS BARREN PLACE
WE CALL OUR HOME
DREAMS OF ENDLESS LANDSCAPES
MORPHING, IN LOVE

COLOR OF BLOOD

A HUNGER NEVER SATISFIED
I CAN’T KEEP YOU OFF MY MIND
DANCING, MOVING, PASSING TIME
LOST WORLDS AND ENDLESS NIGHTS
I HELD YOU AT A DISTANCE THEN
SO I COULD KEEP YOU SACRED NOW
I WATCHED THE VEINS UNDER MY SKIN
MOVING, CHANGING FROM BLUE TO RED
THOSE COLORS BATTLE TO REPENT
FIGHTING SOME KIND OF PUNISHMENT
FOR LOVING YOU
THE DEATHLESS TELL ME
GO ON, STAY LOW
GROW OLD AND LET YOUR HAIR GROW
IN SLEEP THERE IS NO SORROW
SLOWLY PROLONGING A CRUEL FATE
FOR LOVING YOU
THEY HEAR EVERYTHING
THEY GLOW WITH THEIR OWN LIGHT
THEY SING OUT YOUR NAME
A THOUSAND TIMES A NIGHT
GENERATIONS OF SADNESS
INBRED AND UNDER FIRE
IN A THOUSAND LANGUAGES
A WORD FOR THIS DESIRE
FOR LOVING YOU

THE ABYSS

WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE DARK
THEY’LL DRAG YOU DOWN TO THE DEEP BLUE SEA
STARE IT DOWN, THE ABYSS
RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY FROM IT
SNUFF IT OUT AT THE WICK
RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY FROM IT
WITH BROKEN HEARTS, HOW COULD WE FEAR
ANYTHING FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
WHEN I MOVE IT PULLS ME CLOSER
WHEN I SWIM IT DRAGS ME UNDER
WHEN I DREAM IT STEALS MY WONDER
SET ME FREE FROM MY SLUMBER
STARE IT DOWN, THE ABYSS
RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY FROM IT
IT HURTS TO LOVE WHEN I REMEMBER
WE WERE BORN UNTO CHAOS
WHEN I MOVE IT PULLS ME CLOSER
WHEN I SWIM IT DRAGS ME UNDER
WHEN I DREAM IT STEALS MY WONDER
THEN SETS ME FREE FROM MY SLUMBER

_

PAIN IS BEAUTY

_

FERAL LOVE

RUN FROM THE LIGHT
YOUR EYES, BLACK LIKE AN ANIMAL
DEEP IN THE WANDER
AND CARE FOR NO ONE BUT THE OFFSPRING OF YOUR MIGHT
RUN FROM THE ONE WHO COMES TO FIND YOU
WAIT FOR THE NIGHT THAT COMES TO HIDE
YOUR EYES BLACK LIKE AN ANIMAL
BLACK LIKE AN ANIMAL
CROSSING THE WATER
LEAD THEM TO DIE
WE PRESS FOR THE WATER, PRESS FOR THE RIVER, PRESS FOR THE RAIN
WE PRESS FOR THE WATER, PRESS FOR THE RIVER, PRESS FOR THE PAIN

WE HIT A WALL

WE HIT A WALL WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
WE’D GIVEN UP
WE WERE NEVER TAUGHT
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG WE DID IGNORE
IT WAS SO COLD
WE WERE NEVER WARNED
WE NEVER WERE
HOW IS IT THE WORLD
HOW IS IT THE ONE
HOW IS THIS THE WORLD
HOW IS THIS THE ONE
WE HIT A WALL WHEN WE WERE ALONE
WE DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO CONTROL
NO ONE EVER TOLD
I SHOWED YOU HOW TO HOLD MY HAND
AND KISS ME SLOW AND UNENDING
I’LL SHOW YOU HOW TO LOVE
(AN ENDLESS WAR)
HOW IS THIS THE WORLD
HOW IS THIS THE ONE
HOW IS THIS THE WORLD
HOW IS THIS THE ONE

HOUSE OF METAL

YOU PUT THE PILL INSIDE THE PETAL
YOU PUT THE PETAL IN YOUR MOUTH
YOU PUT YOUR LOVE INSIDE THE METAL
YOU BUILD THE METAL FOR YOUR HOUSE
AND THE NIGHT RUNS WILD
YOU PUT THE PILL INSIDE THE PETAL
AND IT RUNS WHITE
YOU PUT THE PETAL IN YOUR MOUTH
YOU PUT YOUR BLOOD INTO THE METAL
AND IT RUNS WHITE
YOU BUILD THE METAL FOR YOUR HOUSE
YOU PUT THE PILL INSIDE THE METAL
YOU PUT THE METAL IN YOUR MOUTH
YOU BLEED INTO YOUR HOUSE OF NETTLES
YOU BLEED THE NIGHT WITHOUT A SOUND
THERE’S AN OCEAN INSIDE YOUR CHEST
WE’VE BEEN SLEEPING INSIDE YOUR HEAD
THERE’S AN OCEAN INSIDE YOUR CHEST
WE’VE BEEN SLEEPING INSIDE YOUR HAND

THE WARDEN

THE SAW IN THE HANDS IT’S WHITE AS SNOW
THE HEAVY ENDLESS WEIGHT ON MY HEELS IT’S COLD
THE WATER ON MY HEAD BUT I WON’T SPEAK OF YOU
THE HALL AND THE RACK AND THE WHEEL, IT’S TRUE
AND WHEN IT TURNS THE HOLE IN MY VISION FILLS WITH YOU
THE COLD AND THE LOUD AND THEY WON’T LET ME SLEEP
I’VE BEEN DRAGGED ON THE FLOOR AND
MY BLOOD EARNS MY KEEP
MY BODY HOLDS A PICTURE OF THE SUN – IT’S YOU
THE WARDEN BORE A HOLE IN MY SKULL, IT’S TRUE
TORE OFF MY LIMBS AND MY BREASTS
THE HEART IT’S HEAVY IN THE CHEST
AND WHEN IT TURNS THE HOLE IN MY VISION FILLS WITH YOU
(HOLE, RACK, WHEEL, TIME
HEART, THORN, KNEES, BLIGHT
HAND, HOLD, BRIGHT WHITE
WHOLE HEAD FEELS LIGHT)
TORE OFF MY LIMBS AND MY BREASTS
THE HEART IT’S HEAVY IN THE CHEST
PULLED OUT MY TONGUE SO I CAN’T SPEAK THE TRUTH
THE PICTURE IN MY VISION IT’S THE SUN, IT’S YOU

DESTRUCTION MAKES THE WORLD BURN BRIGHTER

I DON’T KNOW WHAT I EVER WANTED
YOU GOT A FRONT, WELL YOU BETTER FLAUNT IT
ATE A PIECE OF THE DEVIL’S BODY
THE FACE OF THE DEVIL FOLLOWS ME
EVERY DAY IT FEELS LIKE I’M RUNNING
AND I’M HEADED STRAIGHT FOR THE BLAZE
AND I CAN BREATHE WHEN I’M UNDERWATER
AND I’M READY WITH A FINGER ON THE TRIGGER
OOH, WHO’S THAT GIRL
WHO’S THAT GIRL
SHE’S ONLY SPECIAL IN SECRET
AND SHE’S GOT HER OWN FAMILIAR SPIRITS
SOMETHING INSIDE OF HER RISES AND SHE KNOWS
DESTRUCTION MAKES THE WORLD BURN BRIGHTER
WHO’S THAT GIRL
WHO’S THAT GIRL
(USE THAT GUN)
WHO’S THAT GIRL
WHO’S THAT GIRL
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I EVER WANTED
YOU GOT A FRONT WELL YOU BETTER FLAUNT IT
ATE A PIECE OF THE DEVIL’S BODY
YEA THE FACE OF THE DEVIL FOLLOWS ME

SICK

THIS SUFFERING BRINGS ME CLOSER TO YOU
AND TIME IS BROKEN AND MOVES SLOW
YOUR PURE HEART, YOUR WHITE LIGHT
I SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH FOR EVER BEING CRUEL TO YOU
YOU WASHED ME CLEAN LIKE NO ONE EVER COULD
COME CLOSER NOW AND STEP RIGHT INTO
THE WIDE MOUTH, THE SHARP TEETH OF THE ONE YOU LOVE
I’M NOT THE KIND OF SICK THAT YOU CAN FIX
DON’T YOU WORRY ABOUT ME BABY
I’VE GOT NO ENEMIES AND I’VE GOT NO TIME
THE SONG, WE CARRY ON
EVEN THOUGH YOU PUSHED US DOWN
WE CARRY ON
WHEN YOU TRY TO BLIND MY EYES I CAN SEE TENFOLD
IT’S NOTHING THAT MY HEART CAN’T TAKE, ’CAUSE YOUR HATE HAS MADE ME STRONG
AND STRONGER MEN THAN YOU HAVE TRIED TO BREAK ME
STRONGER MEN THAN YOU HAVE TRIED TO BREAK ME
LEANING TOWARD THE GOLDEN DAYS
FORGET ABOUT THE OLDER DAYS
AND EVERYTHING WE LEFT BEHIND
TO STAND HERE IN ANOTHER LIFE
WE CARRY ON, EVEN THOUGH YOU HELD US DOWN
WE CARRY ON, WITH THE SONG
WE CARRY ON, EVEN THOUGH YOU PUSHED US DOWN
WE CARRY ON

KINGS

KINGS HAVE ALL LOST THEIR HEADS
SOMEHOW WE, WE LOST OUR WAY
WE ARE RUNNING AWAY
LOST UPON THE LONESOME WINDS
THE VOICE OF GOD DESPAIRING HIM
THEN CREPT INTO THE SEVERED HEADS
OF DREAMS WE HAVE FORGOTTEN AND
LOST UPON THE ROTTED MINDS
OF UNJUST FOOLS WHO’VE FORGOTTEN
LOST UPON THE ROTTED HEARTS
OF THOSE WHO FORGOTTEN US
OUR FROZEN WILLS HAVE MELTED DOWN
INTO NOTHING THEY CAN HELP
INTO NOTHING
ALL IS NOTHING
ALL IS DONE
ALL IS OVER

REINS

HOLD THE REINS INSIDE
HOLD IT INSIDE
THESE HORSES THEY PULL ME
THESE HORSES THEY PULL ME
THESE TIRES THEY PULL ME
THESE WINDS THEY PUSH ME
THESE WIRES THEY PULL ME
THESE WIRES THEY PULL ME
TO YOU
THESE HORSES THEY PULL ME
THESE HORSES THEY PULL ME
THESE TIRES THEY PULL ME
ON THE UNFORGIVING ROADS THAT LEAD TO YOU
THESE WINDS THESE WINDS THEY PUSH ME
THESE WIRES THESE WIRES THEY PULL ME
THESE WIRES THESE WIRES THEY PULL ME
TO YOU
AND NOBODY CAN STOP ME NOW

ANCESTORS, THE ANCIENTS

RELEASE YOUR DEAD
RELEASE YOUR DEAD
HOLY ANCESTORS
HOLY ANCESTORS
I SAW IN YOU A PATTERN
I SAW THE REASON WHY
THEY NEVER SAW IT IN YOU
BUT I SWEAR I SAW IT THEN
IN MY HEAD THERE’S A WAR
IN THE END IT’S A HORROR
CAN’T HELP THE CHEMICAL’S FORM
IN MY HEAD THERE’S A WARRIOR
I SAW IN YOU A PATTERN
I SAW THE REASON WHY
HE NEVER SAW IT IN YOU
BUT I SWEAR I SAW IT THEN
RELEASE YOUR DEAD
RELEASE YOUR DEAD
HOLY ANCESTORS
HOLY ANCESTORS
IN MY HEAD THERE’S A WAR
IN THE END IT’S A HORROR
THE URGE TO KILL GETTING STRONGER
IN MY HEAD THERE’S A WARRIOR
AND IT’S A WAR TO FEEL WHOLE
AND IT’S A FEAR TO FEEL AT ALL
AND IT’S THE WONDER AT LOVE
AND IT’S THE WEIGHT OF HER
RELEASE YOUR DEAD
(FOR ME THEY’VE BLED)
RELEASE YOUR DEAD
(THOSE WILD MEN)
BELIEVE YOUR DEAD
(TO GIVE ME DREAMS)
BELIEVE YOUR DEAD
(TO BRING ME DREAMS)

THEY’LL CLAP WHEN YOU’RE GONE

I CAN FEEL THE WALLS CLOSING IN
AND I DON’T WANT TO TALK ANYMORE
WISH I COULD QUIETLY SLIP AWAY
AND LEAVE YOU HERE WITH NO VOID
THE ONLY REASON I STAY IS TO CARE FOR YOU
EVERYTHING ELSE IN ME HAS ATROPHIED
AND I AM COLD AND PAINLESS NOW
I WANT TO LIVE BUT I FEEL NOTHING
WHEN CAN I DIE, WHEN CAN I GO
WHEN WILL I BE FREE, WHEN WILL I KNOW
WHEN CAN I RUN – MY LEGS ARE BOUND
WHEN CAN I GO, WHEN CAN I GO
WAS BORN A BLACKENED SEED IN THE WILD
AND I NEVER WAS A CHILD
I WAS PULLED RIGHT OUT OF THE SEA
AND THE SALT – IT NEVER LEFT MY BODY
SOMEONE OPENED ME UP WHILE I WAS SLEEPING
AND FILLED MY BODY RIGHT UP WITH SAND
I CARRY A HEAVINESS LIKE A MOUNTAIN
IT FORCES ME TO REMAIN
ALIVE AND UGLY, ALIVE AND UGLY
ALIVE AND UGLY, ALIVE AND UGLY
WHEN CAN I DIE, WHEN CAN I GO
WHEN WILL I BE FREE, WHEN WILL I KNOW
WHEN CAN I RUN, MY LEGS ARE BOUND
CAN I LEAVE HERE, KNOWING YOU’LL BE STRONG WITHOUT ME
THEY’LL CLAP WHEN YOU DIE
THEY’LL LOVE YOU WHEN YOU’RE DEAD
AND THEY’LL UNDERSTAND
AND YOU’LL BE FORGIVEN THEN

THE WAVES HAVE COME

THE PAIN FORMS A CIRCLE WITH A LIGHT AT THE CENTER
I CAN SEE IT FROM HERE THE END IS COMING
AND ALL THE WAIT, IT WAS FOR NOTHING
I COVERED YOU IN ROYAL JELLY
I MADE YOU QUEEN AND YOU FORGAVE ME
WE’LL BE GIVEN THE WORLD IN THE RIGHT TIME
BUT WE MADE OUR OWN AND LEFT IT EMPTY
THIS WILL BE OURS
’CAUSE WE’RE THE CONCEPT
AND WE’RE THE FLAWED
AND WE’RE THE ANSWER
YOU SAID TO ME IT WON’T BE LONG NOW
YOU’LL LEAVE THE WORLD AND YOU WILL JOIN ME HERE
MY FLESH IS AFRAID BUT I AM NOT
CAUSE LOVE NOW IS ONLY THE PAIN OF NEEDING
THEY TOOK YOUR SMELL, THEY TOOK YOUR SHADOW
AND I’M SEARCHING THROUGH FACES FOR SOMEONE FAMILIAR
I CLAWED AND I CLAWED BUT I COULDN’T FIND YOU THERE
YOU WOULDN’T WAKE I COULDN’T SLEEP FOR YEARS
THIS WILL BE OURS
’CAUSE WE’RE THE THE CONCEPT
AND WE’RE THE FLAWED
AND WE’RE THE ANSWER
AND WE’RE THE STARS
IT WON’T BE LONG NOW
IT WILL BE OURS
IT WILL BE OURS
CREATION WAS THE ONLY WORD THAT MADE YOU FEEL YOU NEVER WERE
AN ENDLESS HOPE IS ALL IT WAS AND HOLDING SACRED ALL WE WERE
AND DON’T FORSAKE THE WAY WE WERE AND DON’T TELL ME YOU NEVER WOULD
AND WE DON’T NEED PHYSICAL THINGS TO MAKE US FEEL AND MAKE US DREAM
WHEN EARTH CRACKS OPEN AND SWALLOWS THEN WE’LL NEVER BE TIRED AGAIN
AND WE’LL BE GIVEN EVERYTHING THE MOMENT WE REALIZE WE’RE NOT IN CONTROL
AND ALL YOU KNOW GETS OLDER WHEN
THE SUN GOES DOWN AND EVERYTHING BEGINS TO FADE AWAY
THE WAVES HAVE COME AND TAKEN YOU TO SEA NEVER TO RETURN TO ME

LONE

WHEN THE WIND TAKES ‘EM ALL
AWAY FROM HERE, AWAY FROM ME
WHEN THE SORROW IS ALL GONE
IT IS BURIED IN THE SOIL
WHEN THE WIND TAKES EM ALL
AWAY FROM HERE AWAY FROM ME
WHEN THE SORROW IS ALL GONE
IT IS BURIED IN THE SUN
WHEN THE WOLVES HOWL THEIR SONG
AND THE WHOLE EARTH IS DONE
WHEN THE WOLVES HOWL THEIR SONG
AND THE WIND STILL CARRIES ON
_

UNKNOWN ROOMS

FLATLANDS

I WANT FLATLANDS
I NEVER CARED ABOUT
MONEY AND ALL ITS FRIENDS
I WANT FLATLANDS
I WANT FLATLANDS
I DON’T WANT PRECIOUS STONES
I NEVER CARED ABOUT
ANYTHING YOU’VE EVER OWNED
I WANT FLATLANDS
I WANT SIMPLICITY
I NEED YOUR ARMS
WRAPPED HARD AROUND ME
I WANT OPEN PLAINS
AND SCATTERED TREES
I WANT FLOWER FIELDS
AND I WANT SALTY SEAS
I WANT FLATLANDS
SOFT AND STEADY BREEZE
BRINGING SCENTS OF LINED-UP ORCHARD TREES
DRIPPING HEAVY WITH PEARS AND DANCING LEAVES
I WANT FLATLANDS
WILL YOU GO THERE WITH ME
WHEN IT’S SAID IN THE DARK
AND YOU KNOW IT’S ALWAYS THERE
WHEN IT’S DEAD IN YOUR HEART
BUT YOUR MIND IS UNAFRAID
WHEN IT’S SAID IN THE DARK
AND YOU KNOW IT’S NEVER COMIN BACK
WHEN IT’S THERE IN YOUR HEART
IN YOUR MIND YOU SET IT FREE

THE WAY WE USED TO

ARE WE WASTING OUR TIME AWAKE HERE
WE COULD BE SLEEPING
I’LL DISAPPEAR THEN MAYBE
WHEN YOU’RE HERE I KNOW
I COULD NEVER LOVE YOU
I ONLY DREAM OF YOU AFTER YOU ARE GONE
WE DON’T WORK THE WAY WE USED TO
YOUR FACE HAS CHANGED SINCE MORNING
SAY IT – I WANT TO HEAR SOME TRUTH
SAY IT, OH, SAY IT
WHEN YOU’RE HERE I KNOW I COULD NEVER LOVE YOU
I ONLY DREAM OF YOU AFTER YOU ARE GONE

SPINNING CENTERS

WHEN THE MINUTE GOES BY FASTER THAN THE FEET
WHEN THE WINTER PASSES SLOWLY AS DEFEAT
WHEN THE FACE OF DEATH IS AFTER ME SPINNING
ONLY DREAM OF ME ONLY DREAM OF ME
WHEN THE CHILDREN SPEAK OF SINNERS IN THE STREET
WHEN THE FEVER HITS THE CENTER OF OUR FEET
WHEN OUR PALMS ARE BURNT LIKE BALMY WINTER TREES
ONLY DREAM OF ME
ONLY DREAM OF ME

APPALACHIA

IT WAS THE WAY WE ALWAYS KNEW
THAT WE NEVER HAD THE CLUE
THAT WE NEVER HAD A CHANCE
LIKE THE OTHERS IN THE DANCE
LIKE BLACK DIAMONDS, ASH AND LIGHT
LIKE THE MINES AND ANTHRACITE
SPLIT-TONGUED FELLOWS, VENOM-SURVIVED
VIOLENCE ONLY AGAINST THE VILE
E’ER WE BLEED INTO THE WILD
THEN LAID TO REST THERE, MAN OR CHILD
THIS SHINING GUTTER IN THE SUN
IS IT WORTH IT IN THE RUN

I DIED WITH YOU

I DIED WITH YOU
I WEAR YOUR CLOTHES
TO BE MORE LIKE YOU
YOUR EYES STILL SPARKLE
IN MY MIND
THOUGH YOU ARE GONE

BOYFRIEND

BOYFRIEND, BE CAREFUL
CAUSE WOMEN ARE POISONOUS ANIMALS
BOYFRIEND, OH, BOYFRIEND
BE CAREFUL, IF YOU CAN
THERE’S GLORY COMING OUT
I CAN HEAR IT ON OUR MOUTHS
THERE IS A STRANDED HEART
SWIMMING ON CAREFUL AIR
BOYFRIEND, OH, BOYFRIEND
BE CAREFUL
CAUSE WOMEN ARE POISONOUS ANIMALS
BOYFRIEND, BE CAREFUL, IF YOU CAN
THERE’S GLORY COMING OUT
I CAN TASTE IT ON OUR MOUTHS
THERE IS A STRANGER’S HEART
BEATING IN-SIDE MY CHEST
YOU CALL THIS PASSION
BUT I CALL IT A CANCER

OUR WORK WAS GOOD

OH THE NIGHT IS WILD
AND HE IS FINE
AND AWAY WE GO
AND OH OUR HANDS WERE TIRED
BUT OUR WORK WAS GOOD
AND OUR HANDS WOULD HOLD
BROTHER OUR TROUBLES ARE
LOCKED IN EACH OTHER’S ARMS

AND AWAY WE GO
HAPPEN DID IT HAPPEN
IS IT OVER
IS IT DONE
ANSWER, YOU’D ONLY ANSWER
IN QUESTIONS
YOU KNEW ME WELL
AFTER DID WE CARE FOR
ONE ANOTHER
OR OURSELVES AT ALL
OVER IS IT OVER
DID IT HAPPEN
I KNEW HIM WELL

HYPER OZ

MY BED IS SO COLD
WITHOUT YOU IN IT
TELL ME SOMETHING
SO I CAN GO TO SLEEP

SUNSTORM

I REMEMBER EVERYTHING YOU SAID INTO MY HEAD RIGHT BEFORE YOU DIED
IT WAS THE WEEKEND IT WAS NOVEMBER I HAD A STRANGE DREAM IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM A NEIGHBOR
IT WAS THE WEEKEND
IT WAS NOVEMBER
I HAD A STRANGE DREAM
IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY
I HEARD ABOUT IT
FROM A NEIGHBOR
YOU HAD A BAD TRIP
YOU CRAWLED RIGHT DOWN THE HALL
YOU TOOK YOUR FINGERS
YOU FOUND THE CUPBOARD
YOU TWISTED OFF THE CAPS
OF EVERY SINGLE BOTTLE
IT’S LIKE A WATERFALL
IT’S LIKE A LASER
IT’S LIKE A MIRACLE
IT’S A SHARP RAZOR
IT WAS A THURSDAY
I RAN RIGHT OVER
YOU WERE LAYIN THERE
TWISTED AT THE KNEES
I REMEMBER EVERYTHING YOU SAID
I REMEMBER EVERYTHING YOU SAID

FRIEDRICHSHAIN

I WAS ON MY WAY BACK HOME WHEN I STUMBLED UPON A FOREST OF PUREST GREEN
I COULDN’T LOOK AWAY
THERE WAS A SHINING LIGHT SO BRIGHT I COULDN’T LOOK AWAY
I COULDN’T LOOK AWAY
IT’S FREIDRICH’S LITTLE FOREST
HE’S WAITING THERE FOR US TO GROW
THERE WAS A DOOR TO SOMETHING SO PURE
A SPARK WAS THERE WAITING FOR SOMEONE
LIKE ME -SOMEONE SO FAR FROM HOME
I FOUND A WINDOW, WATER LIKE CRYSTAL
THE CLEAREST THING I’VE SEEN
I COULDN’T LOOK AWAY
IN FREIDRICHS LITTLE FOREST
HE’S WAITING THERE FOR US TO GROW
IN FREIDRICH’S LITTLE FOREST
HE’S WAITING THERE FOR US TO COME

PALE ON PALE

WHEN THE LIGHT
IN YOUR EYES
GOES OUT
FOR THE LAST TIME
WHEN YOUR BODY
IS SWOLLEN WITH BLOOD
AND OCEAN FLOOR
IS SWOLLEN WITH SUN
WHEN YOUR HANDS

LIKE
PALE ON PALE

WHEN THE LIGHT
IN YOUR EYES
GOES OUT
FOR THE LAST TIME
AND
WHEN YOUR MIND IS OPEN

TO THE FOREST, TOWARDS THE SEA

ADVICE & VICES

WHAT’S THE USE IN WASTING TIME
WHEN WE’VE FINALLY FOUND A HOME
EVERYBODY’S FEELING FINE
WHAT’S THE USE IN WASTING TIME
CAUSE I NEVER LISTEN TO MY OWN BEST ADVICE,
LIKE ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER
LIKE ONE HEART BLEEDS FOR ANOTHER
AND EVERYBODY WANTS WHAT THEY CAN’T HAVE
YOU TOLD ME YOUR BEST ADVICE
YOU SAID STOP AND LET IT DIE
YOU TOLD ME YOUR BEST ADVICE
DON’T YOU WASTE IT ALL AT ONCE

COUSINS OF THE ANTICHRIST

COUSINS OF THE ANTICHRIST ARE HIDING EVERYWHERE
WATCHING AS WE LET OUR GUARD DOWN SMILING AS WE EAT THEIR LIES
COUSINS OF THE ANTICHRIST WE’RE FEEDING THEIR WAYS
LIGHT EYES AND DARK MINDS AND FEEL NOTHING
(ALL WENT DOWN
A LONG WAY
FOUND THERE LOVE
ALL IN VAIN
ALL WENT DOWN
ALL INSANE
FOUND THERE LOVE
ALL IN VAIN)
COUSINS OF THE ANTICHRIST DON’T LOOK ME IN THE EYE
DIRTY MIND AND CROOKED SPINE BUT HEART IS PURE, HEART IS THE LORDS
(ALL WENT DOWN
A LONG WAY
FOUND THERE LOVE
ALL IN VAIN
ALL WENT DOWN
ALL INSANE
FOUND THERE LOVE
ALL IN VAIN)

FANG

I WAS NOT LYING WHEN I SAID I WOULD TRY
I WAS NOT LYING WHEN I SAID I WOULD LET YOU DOWN
I TURNED MY BACK ON MYSELF
I DON’T WANT TO HURT ANYONE ELSE

BENJAMIN

INBORN AND I HOLD IT ACHES
TAKE IT, KISS IT, FIX IT
PUT YOUR FINGERS IN MY MOUTH
BABY I KNOW ONLY YOU CAN
YOUR WORDS KILL ME IN THE BEST WAY
YOU MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD DISAPPEAR
ONLY WITH YOU
YOU MAKE ME CRAZY
YOUR WORDS KILL ME INSIDE AND
BABY I KNOW ONLY YOU CAN

THE WHYS

WHY DOES EVERYTHING GOTTA BE SO FUCKING COMPLICATED
YOU SAY YOUR LIFE IS WILD AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE FINE
YOU SAY YOUR LIFE IS WILD AND I WONDER WHAT THAT’S LIKE I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN, IT WOULD BE SO FUN
BECAUSE WHEN I GET UP TO LEAVE I HOPE YOU’LL COME AFTER ME BUT YOU DON’T
SO WHEN I GET UP TO LEAVE BUT ONLY ME FOR ME I THINK I KNOW
WHY DOES EVERYTHING GOTTA BE SO FUCKING BEAUTIFUL FOR EVERYONE BUT ME
I CAN’T MAKE NO SENSE, I CAN’T MAKE NO SENSE, I CAN’T MAKE NO SENSE, I CAN’T MAKE NO SENSE FOR ME
WHY DOES EVERYTHING GOTTA BE SO FUCKING PERFECT FOR EVERYONE BUT ME
I SWEAR TO GOD I’M A SPIDER IN A JAR SOMEONE’S SHAKING IT THEN WATCHING ME CRAWL FAST THEN SLOW BUT NEVER REALLY GETTING FAR
I’M ALL ALONE CAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO SING ABOUT DEATH WITH ME
YOU PRONOUNCE YOURSELF A GOD THEN YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON YOU GOTTA TELL ME
CAUSE THERE’S NO LIGHT, NO THERE’S NO LIGHT, NO THERE’S NO LIGHT AT THE END OF MY TUNNEL

NOORUS

I WAS YOUNG
I WAS SCARED
I WAS SO HIGH I DIDN’T CARE
MIND WAS LOOSE
MIND WAS DEAD
MIND WAS JADED LIKE QUARTER-FED
I WAS A BOY
I WAS WHORE
I WOULD TAKE IN ANYTHING YOU’D GIVE
ONLY CARED
ABOUT MYSELF
FUCK YOU AND YOUR EGO
GET OUT OF MY BRAIN..
IT WAS A WAR
IT WAS OBSCENE
IT WAS THE WORST THAT I HAD BEEN
IT WAS A BAG OF CHOCOLATE COINS
IT WASN’T WATER
IT WASN’T FREE
IT WAS THE WORST THAT I HAD BEEN
IT WAS THE DEATH OF SOME KIND OF SCENE

HALFSLEEPER

ALL THE PARTS OF ME THAT LIVED INSIDE
ARE DROWNING IN THE SEA OF WAKING LIFE
THEY DON’T KNOW THEIR COLORS DON’T BELONG ON THE OUTSIDE
THEY DON’T KNOW THEIR COLORS DON’T BELONG
UNTIL THEY’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE OPEN ROAD
TIL THEY’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE ASPHALT ON THE OPEN ROAD
TIL THEY’RE STREAMING IN THE WIND LIKE CASSETTE TAPE OR JELLYFISH
LONG DARK VEINS AND RECORDS PLAYING MEMORIES
ALL THE THINGS WE YELLED DON’T MEAN A THING
WHEN WE’RE SPINNING OUT ON DARK AND METAL WIND
WHEN WE’RE FLYING LIKE BLUE MARY’S ANGELS THROUGH SHATTERED GLASS
WHEN WE FIND THE TALL BLACK SHADOW WAITING THERE WITH OUTSTRETCHED HANDS
HE HAS GIVEN ME A DRESS OF RED AND YOU A SKIN OF GRAY
WE’LL BE TWISTING HERE FOR HOURS TIL THE LIGHT WILL GIVE US DAY
WE’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE OPEN ROAD
AND WE’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE ASPHALT ON THE OPEN ROAD
AND WE’RE STREAMING IN THE WIND LIKE CASSETTE TAPE OR JELLYFISH
LONG DARK VEINS AND RECORDS PLAYING MEMORIES

WIDOW

I SAW THE WIDOW IN THE WINDOW WAVING DOWN AT ME, HEAL YOUR BONES
I SAW THE BIRD CIRCLING ABOVE ME, HEAL YOUR BONES
I HAD A VISION OF THIS BUT SO PAINLESS, HEAL YOUR BONES
I OPENED THE BOOK TO YOUR BIRTH-PAGE AND IT SAID, HEAL YOUR BONES
I SAW I SAW
HEAL YOUR BONES, HEAL YOUR BONES
