Track Name: Go Dark
I feel the urge
I gotta get away from here
From the dust
And the bullshit that I'm hearing
I'm too cold to be useful to anyone but myself
It's time, time to go dark

I'm a murder waiting to happen
So I collude with the devil and his heart
Don't wanna leave this world
Without making my mark
It's time to go dark
It's time to go dark
It's time to go dark
Track Name: My Love
1.
My love, she brings the rain
And dust clouds of shame
That make me remember
The love I could not tender

2.
My love, she brings the night
And cold dreams of the fight
That make me shiver
Oh, the love I can't deliver

3.
My love, she brings the pain
The memories are just a stain
I'm forever in her debt
For the love that she regrets...
Track Name: Find It / Kill It
1.
Happiness eludes me
Been searchin' for hours
In the time that it's been gone
All my milk has soured

When I find it, I'll kill it

2.
Where's the solution?
Been lookin' for days
I am confusion, and
It's lost in the haze

When I find it, I'll kill it
When I find it, I'll kill it

3.
Reason escaped me
Been missing for weeks
Now I'm sleeping with enemies, and
Hangin' out with the freaks

When I find it, I'll kill it
When I find it, I'll kill it
When I find it, I'll kill it

4.
Death is the end game
Been that way for years
Now it's right in front of me, and
The haze finally clears

I've found it, now I'll kill it
I've found it, now I'll kill it
I've found it, now I'll kill it
I've found it, now I'll kill it...
Track Name: Forgive Me, Elise
1.
Forgive me, Elise
I know not what I do
I'm tired and I need the truth
Forgive me, Elise
All I want is you
But the blade cuts deep when you... refuse

2.
Forgive me, Elise
I am cursed with what I crave
And the dissonance is deep in my heart
Forgive me, Elise
No one else will do
And the light fades out when you... refuse

Bridge.
If forgiveness is not and option
Then all of this means nothing
If your preference is dark over light
Then this means nothing.... nothing...

Forgive me, Elise
For I know not what I do
I'm tired and I just need you...
Track Name: The Echo Of Your Lies
1.
Brutal and tender
Only one is remembered
Under the surface
Of plastic and embers
That burn so bold
They endlessly crumble in my hands
The Ashes are sticky and cold

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger

2.
Pride and shame
You're playing the game
The gaslight is stoked
And it's calling my name
Speaking in tongues
That tirelessly twist in its mouth
The words are both old and young

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger

Bridge.
If you told the truth it would kill you
If you told the truth it would kill you
If you told the truth it would kill you

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger
Track Name: Snow Moon
Under a snow moon
Before the freeze
Scarlet thoughts
bleed midnight deeds
Bitter blue snow moon
Staining the trees
And I don't think I can fight this anymore

Even the sun hides
Like an enemy
Scarlet thoughts
Bleed midnight deeds
The cold light of hind sight
Holds a prophecy
And I don't think I can fight this anymore

And I don't think I can fight this
Cut out and cauterise this
Not enough I recognise
left

Under a snow moon
Before the freeze
Scarlet thoughts
Bleed midnight deeds
Bitter blue snow moon
Won't hear my pleas
And I don't think I can fight this anymore
Track Name: Walk With Me, Judith
1.
Walk with me, Judith
Down past the gates of hell
Where the sailors smoke cigarettes
And hypocrites poison the well
Walk with me, Judith
I'm falling under your spell

2.
Lay with me, Judith
Here on the feather and down
We can grind until morning
Then sleep until we drown
Lay with me, Judith
Our passion will know no bounds

Bridge.
In each other's dreams
We will destroy the days
Break the bed some more
Then go our separate ways

3.
Meet with me, Judith
Wearing your blood stained coat
Go down on me under the arches
Then put your hands 'round my throat
Meet with me, Judith
And make my love explode

4.
Die with me, Judith
We're cursed by destiny
Eternal lovers
In death we will be free
Die with me, Judith
There's nowhere I'd rather be
Die with me, Judith..
Track Name: When The Light Can't Get In
I hope I die in the winter
I hope you're there to bear witness
I hope I still have a lover
When the sky caves in

I hope I go peacefully
Without pain or sickness
But leaving's never easy
When the light can't get in
Track Name: We've Broken The Frame
1.
Your heart is a deadweight
And I'm tied to it alone
It's bruised and it's battered
But it feels like home

Chorus.
Thought we were a picture of happiness
But we've broken the frame

2.
Your soul is weightless
And it floats through my pain
It's hollow and empty
It's cold and stained

Chorus.
Thought we were a picture of happiness
But we've broken the frame

Bridge.
Make the incision
Cut through my vision
Just to save yourself

Chorus.
Thought we were a picture of happiness
But we've broken the frame
Track Name: Nothing Love
1.
A pox on both your houses
Drink the poison down
Neurotic repulsion
Fills the silence with sound

Chorus.
'Cause your love means nothing

2.
Dying in slow motion
Drink the potion down
Obsessive compulsion
Dictates that we drown

Chorus.
And your love means nothing
