1. To Live & Die By Fire

We've burned this city and it's coming down
Pack your bags, we leave at dawn
We move in cycles, the story is always the same
We take who we can with us, & then we get out
Burn. We watch it burn right before our eyes
There's no turning back now
Burn. We watch it burn right before our eyes
There's no turning back now
Fall to your knees and ask yourself
"Will we every make it home?"
The question that remains will be lifted to the heavens
We've burned this city and it's crumbling
Grab your things we're leaving now
Onto the next one, I swear it's always the same
We take who we can with and leave the rest in shame. Shame. Shame


2. The Worst Is Yet To Come

These words have slipped again
Stitch the lips of the mouth that murmurs them
Cloud your vision, make everyone disappear
There's still tie to wake up
Get out while you still can speak
This mud is too thick to see through
The stitches are coming out
The wounds won't heal
Is this embedded status permanent?
So, I'm rearing... The worse is yet to come, days are getting shorter
Close your eyes for a while, rest a little longer
This mud is too thick to see through
The stitches are coming out
The wounds won't heal themselves
Is this embedded status permanent?
So, I'm rearing... The worse is yet to come, days are getting shorter
Close your eyes for a while, rest a little longer
These shoulders are too weak to carry any more
My will is too weak to carry on


3. In Place Of Hope

Farewell
Parting is such sweet sorrow
It's time to go now & I don't know if there will be tomorrow
It's her time to be the best she'll be forever, when she feels it
The pain she couldn't avoid... If only she could breath
Let the little child run away
Let the little child fly away
I wish I could kiss her cheek & tell her that I love her
It's not realistic in this life but maybe the other
I know these secrets
Might you have been my blood relation?
I will always think of you
I can't wait to meet you face to face
Face... to... face
She's been waiting for so long, but she'll always be gone
Let the little child run away
Let the little child fly away


4. White Walls

Quite... Warm...
Unable to speak a single word
These white walls are taking me
Saying the words we mean to no one (we mean to no one)
It's the best way to kill the adolescent (the adolescent)
Familiar, restless, bleeding, constant
I've given my eyes away to darkness & locked all of the entrances
While visions of angels dance in my mind
Saying the words we mean to no one (we mean to no one)
It's the best way to kill the adolescent (the adolescent)
This world is a thief to our eyes
This world is a thief in disguise
If sight is lacking, take mine
If sight is lacking take my eyes
I can hear them calling
I can see them reaching out
They're speaking my name
They're pleading with my heart
These white walls are taking me
Familiar, restless, bleeding, constant
Saying the words we mean to no one (we mean to no one)
It's the best way to kill the adolescent (the adolescent)
I can hear them calling
I can see them reaching out
They're speaking my name
They're pleading with my heart


5. Bliss

Fell the fire of our hearts, fell the flame of our desire
Alone we will find you, but alone we are
We are desperate for guidance, we are looking for direction
Open our ears
You're almost like a shotgun ringing out with no objection
Open our ears
You're almost like a shotgun ringing out with no objection
Show us how to move like you do
We're moving now, we're moving now
Starve us so we will have this hunger
Let us look till we can look no more
Alone we are searching, but alone we are
Show us how to move like you do
We're moving now, we're moving now
Open our ears
You're almost like a shotgun ringing out with no objection
Open our ears
You're almost like a shotgun ringing out with no objection


6. Cherished

The shadows are dark with loneliness & in them we are searching
It's all we've ever known and the strength we need has been hidden
Heaven help us, we're only human
I'm not sure if we can make it
Heaven help us, we need more then just enough
Your presence is required
Determined to find what we're searching for
We're weak and can only hold on for so long
Heaven help us, we're only human
Heaven help us
Waiting for something more
More of you, more of you
Like a drug we crave you for our addiction
Even in your hands, it's so hard to feel your grasp around us


7. With What You Have

[Instrumental]


8. Kelsey

He's held me for ransom for far too long
I don't care how much it hurts
I'll find a way to escape
Point his weapon straight at my head
The sooner you pull the trigger, the sooner I soak it all in
Take it from my steps
Take it from my words
Strip the images from my mind
Take the need to see to see from my eyes
I'll keep my foundation
I'll keep the tears
I'll share the bloodshed that you gave up for me
My hands have been bound for far too long
I don't care about the pain, I'll find the means of escape
If you point this weapon straight to my head, be sure you pull the trigger and I'll soak it all in
Take it from my steps
Take it from my words
Strip the images from my mind
Take the need to see from my eyes
Resist the torture of the millions
The downfall of an age
The fuel of our skin
The end of something beautiful


9. Recovery

When I wake up, I want to see you
I need to hear you
I want to live your life
In my day, I fail to see
I fail to seek the one that gives life
I've looked away from your grace
You've been waiting at the gates
I'm running, you're standing still
It's been so long since I've been here
It's time to come back again
It's time to make a correction
Slain to the past
Resurrect me
Undeserving
You love me still
Your love, I love
I've run away a thousand times
I've run away for the last time
I'm alone with bleeding and broken hands
It's been so long since I've seen your love
I've looked away from your grace
You've been waiting at the gates


10. I Can Revive Him With My Own Hands

If love was this door, then I've slammed it in your face, ran out to the
balcony and jumped to the ground.
I've sponged the place in gasoline before igniting the foundation and burning it to ashes.
If love was a plane, then I've flown it to the highest point, only to let it come crashing down to the Earth.
Fasten your seatbelts, we're going down, we're going down now.
If love was a child, then I've scolded him to no end.
He's been filled with nothing inside.
Until the day when bullets filled the emptiness inside him.
From his own gun, from his own hands.
Love became the pill that stopped his shakes.
He's never crossed a man's face so hard.
Love became the pill that put him under, he's never scratched a man's heart so deep.
If love was born to die. Then I've buried him six feet under. If love was born to die then I've buried him six feet under.
If love was a child, then I've scolded him to no end.
He's been filled with nothing inside.
Until the day when bullets filled the emptiness inside him.
If you take the one and minus Him by two, you've got the end of the world, before it's even begun.
Although I've murdered his heart, I can revive him with my own two hands.


11. Stare & Wonder

Through this window, I see my vision is crystal clear
It won't be long now
Never tainted
It won't be long now
Always crystal
The darkest night
I used to feel alive
Could we believe it?
Could they believe it?
I could feel the twisting in the wells of my inner self
Could we believe it?
Could they believe it?
It won't be long now... Never tainted... Always crystal
If seeing is believing, then this heart has never been beating
You should have let me live at least for one more day
Instead the silence takes me in vain
Everything you choose to say
Your piercing gaze
It rips my soul away
You should have let me live in vain
Just stare and wonder when I'm gone
Just stare and wonder why... You should have let me live


12. Blossom, The Witch

She is the enchantment
She is the filth that you love to crawl in
You're forced to feed on the dirt that you can only perceive as passion
But looks are deceiving
Beauty is only skin deep
She's put and end to existence
She's put and end to us all
There's something in her eyes that says, "I am here to tell you lies"
Meet here stare to entrap yourself In the place where love has died
Beware the blossom
Beware of here eyes
Run
You'll never make it out of here alive
Run
You'll never make it out
But looks are deceiving
Beauty is only skin deep
She's put an end to existence
She's put an end to us all
Beware
