Track Name: decades
In 2133 I woke up from a dream
The ones they froze me to see what it all means
For 100 years I was asleep
While the world it turned and counted sheep
Death has fallen to those I knew
Yet still I search the world for you

This life is nothing like the one I can remember
It lacks a certain warmth that keeps the heart so tender
This human race have hearts of steel
They have forgotten how to feel

You were born in a distance place where love is a lie
I am trapped in this modern world
The heart is a lie
This is the wrong time to be
You're the one, the one the one, Yes you're the one for me

I fondly think of days that carried on forever
Now moonlight falls so early and so clever
The sun deprived they are so weak
They have forgotten how to speak


You were born in a distance place where love is a lie
I am trapped in this modern world
The heart is a lie
This is the wrong time to be
You're the one, the one the one, Yes you're the one for me
Track Name: nite moves
Your silhouette is in the dark
I caught a glimpse you feel so far
The thrill it moves me so
I can smell your fire
We shall run into the night
We shall run and give into desire

Your skin smells sweet
Give me all of your secrets
I just want you so please come a bit closer

I want your nite moves
Let me steal your nite moves
I want want your nite moves
Let me steal your nite moves
I want want your nite moves

Your neon vibe it draws me close
Your cool your stance I love the most
You make me lose control
I can't see what's right
I don't care anyway
Let us run
We shall devour the night

I want your nite moves
Let me steal your nite moves
I want want your nite moves
Let me steal your nite moves
I want want your nite moves
Track Name: crocodile tears
I can feel the steely glare of the crowd
My last breath it stutters
I'm begging to shout
These harsh words fade into the past
I'm left with vowels that don't seem to last

Tell me what you want to see
My heart lives right here on my sleeve
It shudders with its every beat
I'm begging you to let me speak
These words they know no sanctity
I'm dying for a quick release

I am bleeding in my belly
Hurry catch me I am heavy
Tears are only for the sinners
Please be good

So tonight she cries in dreams

I'm drowning in this sea of plastic grins
I've lost my patience
I forgot where I've been

Tell me what you want to see
My heart lives right here on my sleeve
It shudders with its every beat
I'm begging you to let me speak
These words they know no sanctity
I'm dying for a quick release

I am bleeding in my belly
Hurry catch me I am heavy
Tears are only for the sinners
Please be good

She falls so deeply inside her mind
So that she can turn back the tides of time

When she surrenders
For when she's awake she's far too tender
They shut their eyes her pain is endless
And when she cries she ends up friendless
Track Name: ghost
Squeeze my hand to remind me that I'm real
I burn a hole inside me so I can feel
My lips they make no sounds
My words they've gone and drowned
Save me from this plane of obscurity

Hold my knees real close
Don't you let go
Feel the rush of my soul
Can you feel my heartbeat?
It's fading as I speak

I kiss the sun to steal the warmth it deals
For if I don't my innards will disappear
I'm two feet underground
I'm slipping please pull me out
Save me from this hole of obscurity

Hold my knees real close
Don't you let go
Feel the rush of my soul
Can you feel my heartbeat?
It's fading as I speak
Track Name: flesh n bone
I live in all this flesh n bone
My hearts pumps all this blood it has to
My veins contract with every breath
You take away You know I love you

My skin perspires with every touch
My fingers try to hard to grasp you
Every time you try to pull me down
I feel my blood flow away slowly
I can sense that you are breaking me down
And my pulse slows the beat beat beat...

You strip away what's left of my heart
You cut away all that's left bleeding
With your words I feel like such a small part
Of your world I wish I gave it more meaning
You carve me to the bone
I'm losing my vitality
The invisible becomes alone
I'm so terrified it thrills me

Someone tell this careless man
That he's holding my heart too damn closely
I would tell him but please understand
That my lips are fading ever so slowly
I feel alive when he takes me hand
And wraps me around his finger
But every time you let go
I dissolve into a sheer ghost
And all that I am becomes much less
I crumble into an invisible mess

You strip away what's left of my heart
You cut away all that's left bleeding
With your words I feel like such a small part
Of your world I wish I gave it more meaning
You carve me to the bone
I'm losing my vitality
The invisible becomes alone
I'm so terrified it thrills me

My heart beats
Track Name: illusions of grandeur
I had a dream I lived in the sea
Though it was cold I was at home you see
I couldn't breathe but float so aimlessly
Like a dream like a dream
I wrapped my feet right around the kelp
Opened my mouth too late to shout for help
I invite the dark into my heart
We will sink
We shall sink

Slipping, slowly, surely, sinking
I'm not sure what I was thinking
To feel safe in the arms of a boy
Who played me like a toy

This is the end all I see is black
I feel alone, but there's not turning back
I invite the dark into my heart
We will sink
We shall sink


Slipping, slowly, surely, sinking
I'm not sure what I was thinking
To feel safe in the arms of a boy
Who played me like a toy
Track Name: broken
My cold robotic arms they reach out to you
I see your bionic heart is tearing into two
Darling I can smell the fire
We're being put to the test
My sensibility, sensibility, is falling apart at best

What I feel is called desire
It has a heart of its own
The gears are slowing by the hour
You were made for me I know

We are so broken,broken
Pick up the pieces please
This is dysfunction
We both know we hurt each other completely
We are so broken, broken
Damaged beyond repair
Dear operator, operator
Send my best for this is more than I can bear

Take my cold arms hold me closely
Dry my eyes and set me free
I know I'm the one who has to
Be the one to let this be

You.Me. Can't.Be

We are so broken,broken
Pick up the pieces please
This is dysfunction
We both know we hurt each other completely
We are so broken, broken
Damaged beyond repair
Dear operator, operator
Send my best for this is more than I can bear
Track Name: love is magick
I'm waiting in this bed for you
I came back to the place that we both knew
Expecting a home that is no longer true
I reached for your scent
But you're gone
Baby you're gone, you're gone , you're gone
Baby you're gone , you're gone
I reached for my gun, but you're gone
Baby you're gone, we're done

You seem to consume the breath that I take
Until I'm all left with is the heart that you break
You haunt this home
My tired old bones
Like a faint melody
You echo through the night
The night, the night, the night
I reached for the knife, the knife, the knife
You disappeared into the night

Love is like magick
It knows no fear
Love is like magick
It feels like fear
It makes me want to disappear
Teach me more lies
Distort this blind eye

I have been cursed with a blind eye
I suppose that's why I will still try till I die
I'll keep looking for you in every cold room
It's been 100 years
But I'll keep our love alive
alive alive alive alive alive
I reached for your life your life your life
I pray that our love survives

Love is like magick
It knows no fear
Love is like magick
It feels like fear
It makes me want to disappear
Teach me more lies
Distort this blind eye
