Track Name: Atrophy
Get a life
I wouldn't want yours
Send salvation
Take me out
And I could be your
Soul starvation
Glass splayed hands
In the cracks I
See it better
Suicide
Is so cheap we
Want it better

Pre:
Your life is a lie
Till the moment you die
No-one gets out here alive

CHORUS
We will be
We're nearly
I will stand

I wish I
Could hide inside
A fall from grace
We're glorified
And find our minds are
Lost untraced
Freedom falls
And our revenant
Holds on tight
So rise and stand
And be a
Shining light

(Pre to Chorus)

Broken distorted
And faces contorted
And smiles barely able to
Hold onto grief
Herats are of no use
Our love is abuse
As it culls in the night
Just to get some relief
Lets stand and be grateful

For all that we're able
To tie ourselves down
With tomorrow to pay
We're left without hope
This whole thing's a joke
What they promised was love
Has begun to decay
Track Name: Shallow Grave
I'm in the middle of nothing
And something's been holding me back
I'm buying ya smile on the outside
That mainline's a broken old track
Believing in grieving and leaving a dream
We've been selling off beans at the scene
But it's never enough
Guess that some of that stuff's
Even looking like happy to me

My heart was never black just
Subtle shades of grey
Might be the devil on your back
But in mine
It's the knives that
Are making me stay


CHORUS:
He said it's just like when we were better
She said my love we could have it all
Oh, nothing
Makes no sense at all


It's only duress
That's making me rest
Else I'd be right back up on you again
Just needing a push
And feeding the rush
It's pulling me back in and then
I'm dreaming I'm screaming
And laughing at trees
I'm trying to fly
And I'm still on my knees
I'm feeling like Alice
Not looking so hot
'S not what I want
But it's all that I got

My heart was never black just
Subtle shades of grey
Might be the devil on your back
But in mine
It's the knives that
Are making me stay


Painted in a corner
A smile just like a mourner
Forget about ya sin
And get ya own self in
Nothing's gonna change
But nothing stays the same
Don't believe the lies 'cos
No-one leads a lie
Pull away the skin
And letting it all in
Dying to be something
'Cos nothing is a sin
Need another wake up
To take away the shake up
With lament sent make-up
The best ya ever seen


CHORUS:

He said ir's just like when we were better
She said my love we could have it all
Oh, nothing
Makes no sense at all
Track Name: The Dead Is Here
Now I feel a worthless and my surface is
In decay
Got a reason to believe in and
I'm ok
I know i got a bleed but
I'm
Not yet done speaking today
No I never said I'd
Give it away
No I never said id
Do it your way
And no I never said id
Give in today

All we need's this blind man
Leading the change
All we need's a dead man
Holding the reigns
Seeing how the mad man's
Stalking the rain
Save me from a sinner who
Claims to be a saint


chorus:
Cast me out
Bring me down
Paint the apples
Won't save her now
My rain of mist and palendromic tones are
Failing me



All I ever had and I'm starting to change
All I ever had and I'm starting to rage
I know I got it in myself
What the hell d'you want now doing today
Tell me why the hell you wanted to play
Everything about it is the same old same old day
I bring my own colour just in case
Your world is much to grey

No I'm not done yet speaking today
No I'm not done yet speaking today
No I'm not done yet speaking today
No I'm not done yet speaking today

chorus:
I forget
I don't know
Ya made this scene a
Show of hands all painted red
Like yours

Cast me out

It's all finally over
It's all I want it to be
It's finally over
It's all I ever wanted it to be

I dream of better lies of me
Breathe for me
Hope for me
I'll be waiting here for you

My eyes
Blackened and so hypnotised
I'm surprised I can find my own mind

My eyes
Blackened and so hypnotised
I'm surprised I can find my own mind
My eyes
Blackened and so hypnotised
And believed to be alive
Track Name: Requiem
Yesterday was real
The scars it left
I still feel
But I'm not sure today was ever
Meant to follow
Fools in sorrow
How can this be
For the best
When nothing good
Can come of this
Unless it's best
To test our
Rest in pieces
And feel bless 'cos

There's no ground
To stand so tall
You won't give up
I gave it all

CHORUS:

I only wanna hurt you
I only wanna make you cry
I want to
See you're sorry
I only wanna hurt you
I only wanna make you cry
I want to
See you're sorry

We were cutting out words
To make our valentines
Like a paper doll
Cutting through the white lines
A cynic can cut his wrists
In bliss
And believe his faith's a lie
Keep taking the first steps on shattered bone
Collapse in the spotlight of borrowed fame
You're believing the hype
You were buying the type
I was playing for keeps
You were playing a game

CHORUS:

I only wanna hurt you
I only wanna make you cry
I want to see you're sorry
I only wanna hurt you
I only wanna make you cry
I want to
See you're sorry
We want a
Live abortion
And fight to play
The victim in our own
Sad charade

Nothing to say
And nothing to feel
You can't say sorry
If this isn't real
You put me on pins
All the needles you kept
To much to forgive
I'll never forget

It feels like a dream
Why the hell can't I wake up
You tell them it died
I'm not a fashion to take up
You covert my words
You colour my reason
If you were my world
You'd make
Sorrow a season

We want a live abortion
And fight to play
The victim in our own
Sad charade
Track Name: Death Spawn
Get up
Said I'm walking with stupid today
Shut up
Never have a point to what you say
Give up
Gotta vice I'm gonna let you play
Takes a turn
Makes you learn
The lesser of today

Break it
Say it's 'cos we made you wrong ok
Break in
Like the bad man make it go away
Breaking
And I don't know if I wanna stay
As it stands
With demands
I think I'm slipping away

Lemme hear your side
Let me hear you lie to me
Lemmer hear you side
Let me hear you lie

CHORUS:

It's all your fault
You're fucking it up
You keep on
Keep on
Letting it in

Fan out
Watch the body falling from afar
Black out
Have a white wash cover up a scar
Pull out
'Fore ya let yaself get in too far
Can't believe all the scenes that ya see
Oh man

What do you want from me
What do you hope to see
Said it's nothing new to do with the times
They're all fine this is mine
And now I'm drawing the line

Lemme hear your side
Let me hear you lie to me
Lemmer hear you side
Let me hear you lie

CHORUS:

It's all your fault
You're fucking it up
You keep on
Keep on
Letting it in
Track Name: Revenant
I got
Something inside of me
I got
Something you'll never see
I got
Illness inside of me
I got
Something creeping over me
Got time to kill
So I'll take it
Got time to ill
So I'll fake it
Gotta find a way
To make somebody pay
Nothing in this world is ever gonna be the same

In time
All we have is words
And words
Don't make a voice get heard
This time
I stopped believing
In time
All we have is words
And words
Can make a dream get worse
This time
I don't believe it

Chorus:
Who we are
What we were
What we never hope to be
This is everything I ask of you
(And nothing I could need)

I gotta find myself a brand new hell to sell myself
I walnt it clean just like the dream I want it
All for me

In time
All we have is words
And words
Don't make a voice get heard
This time
I stopped believing
In time
All we have is words
And words
Can make a dream get worse
This time
I don't believe it

Chorus:
Who we are
What we were
What we never hope to be
This is everything I ask of you
(And nothing I could need)
Track Name: Goldmine
Theres someone dead in the bath
And I can see the lights from here
But still it hurts to laugh
And I can't make you learn to fear
You could always come
I could make you go away
I won't say
I got a line to god

CHORUS;
My dreams
Are full of screams
And I can't see
Anything at all
I found my hell
Was made too well
And I'm about ready to fall

And the weird scenes are filling my dreams
And the voices are choices I hear
Without you I may still be ok
With you I'm still here
And for kings they can sing and can be anything
A crowned head ushers in the brand new dawn
So get raised up and ready to praise up
And bring me down as kingdoms fall


CHORUS;
My dreams
Are full of screams
And I can't see
Anything at all
I found my hell
Was made too well
And I'm about ready to fall

My spine feels twisted feels like ya missed it somehow
Can't see now when you been walking away
After day after day after day after day
Without you I may still be ok
/With you I'm still here
Track Name: Severance
You could be my little
Fashioned victim rape doll
So cut and clean and so scerene
A fading glass doll


I could make you
I could take you
I could break you now
You could be my novelty
When I want more

chorus:
In daylight
You aint all that I can see
If im breathing
Then i guess that I'm still free
I'm feeling
Like nothing new is new to me
I'm dreaming
You could be my

Lieing to me
Quit lieing to me

I keep fading out on parade and I'm
All on my own here
Like a paper cut it's not quite ever enough of
But it's all I could ask for

If they make you
They can break you
You can't
Say not now
This could be your novelty
But I want more
Track Name: Army Of One
And of all the things you could swallow
Be it pride or a swollen sorrow
Take it down to the ground
And behold my home grown side show

I get it forget it I know that ya said it
Ya meant it to be someone elses surprise
I see this all in your eyes
It makes it hard to care my dear

This army of one

Hold onto me
Just hold on

His mind's in disarray
He blew it all away
I've been waiting here for you
My name gets caught in the air
God knows what got me here
I'm gasping to live but it's life
And no-one said it's fair

This army of one

On that day
The world fell apart
Cut off the strings
To start
The heart
Filled holes with progress
Smiled anyway
It never stops
Never
Goes away
Track Name: Morphine
And tonight we died
A thousand times
Like we were stars in a car crash
That lit up the skies

We could buy the rights and
Say it's all a lie
But you

Calm me down

And tonight we'll play the parts
Of movie stars
I'll let you be my heroin
I'll be the villain
That won win

We could take this world and
Start it all again
But you

Calm me down

But for all these things
That I call dreams
I've made a fool
It seems
With broken arms
To keep the harm so close to me

If I ever knew
What would I wanna see
But you

Calm me down


When you're reaching for the stars
They seem so far away
All the headlights and the highlights
It seems all so bright
It doesn't have to be like this
It doesn't need to
End this way
We're all made up of fantasies
These dreams that no-one sees
Just because you dasaid it is
Doesn't mean it is
Track Name: Desolution
Trust me
Let me
Make it all
Right again
This time
I find
Myself
Look back
And then

It's not a dream
And it's barely over
Starting to fall
*Stutter to crawl
*Anything
Starting to fall
*Stutter to crawl
*Anything
It's not a dream
And it's barely over

CHORUS:
I'm wasted alone
Adrift on my own
It's as much as
I can't feel
I'm wasted alone
Adrift on my own
This time I hope
My view is real

Said I'm in a rush
To try to get the push on 'em all
Leaving nothing to give
'Less I'm given it all
I know it isn't easy
To see what I mean
And you're starting to scream

I'm giving it up
But I'm stuck in the rush
Got my ticket to pride
Pride alone ain't enough
I think I've lost my way here
