Burn 05:28
Burn I've been tormented by this poison inside and all that I've tried to hide... Time enlightened the crimes, the endless divide in every waking hour... Now we can see how this sickness has grown here... Now we can know how it thrives and endures here... And we admit our self defeat... It just brought me to my knees... Anything we want to say... Let it all just burn away... Burn away... Fear becomes us again, the means to an end... The label becomes our fate... Fire, it's burning again, salvation begins... the coward still lives to pretend... Now we can see how this sickness has grown here... Now we can know how it thrives and endures here... And we admit our self defeat... It just brought me to my knees... Anything we want to say... Let it all just burn away... Burn away... All these lies... All this pain.. All our lives... All in vain... Now we can see how this sickness has grown here... Now we can know how it thrives and endures here... And we admit our self defeat... It just brought me to my knees... Anything we want to say... Let it all just burn away... Burn away...

Serpentine 05:58
Serpentine Wrapped around your finger... Serpent like in design. Sin and sweat still linger... Fortified in their wine... Slithering in their decadency... Play the part so venomously... Cold is our winter... Dark are these days... Can you feel these serpent eyes... Sealing fates from the other side... I'm attacked and demoralized... All is black and I cannot escape their lies... Caught between these whispers... Menacing in design... And this heart still withers... As the serpent's unwind... Slithering in their decadency... Play the part so venomously... And so we falter... Too cold to breathe... Can you feel these serpent eyes... Sealing fates from the other side... I'm attacked and demoralized... All is black and I cannot escape their lies... Slithering in their decadency... Play the part so venomously... Cold is our winter... Dark are these days... Can you feel these serpent eyes... Sealing fates from the other side... I'm attacked and demoralized... All is black and I cannot escape their lies...

Forgiven 05:38
Forgiven Would you have forgiven me for all that I have done? Would you have forgotten me if you saw what I've become? Would you raise your fists to me or walk the other way? Could you stand to look at me with judgement wiped away? And God... I'd side with the devil... God... I know... I'd side with the devil... And the culprits of fear pretend... That we've opened the seals again... Could we falter far from Grace and live to tell the tale? Could we alter everything and kill the will to fail? Can you feel the darkness here, can you even see? Can you learn to love from here, without this belief? And God... I'd side with the devil... God... I know... I'd side with the devil... And the tortured can see the end... And they tell us to bow again... And the heavens cannot be forgiven...

Western Grace Across the throes... Seven thousand seas... It's dangerous... Dangerous to scream... Like minds in tow... Hide beneath, unseen... It's scandalous... Scandalous to dream... Roll on that stone... The ceremonial haze... The shrouded frown is cast away... Fairweathered grace... In that, be known... The crown of thorns... Is sitting all alone... Forbidden haste... What was said to me... Fiction finds its home... In western heresy... Without a hope... Life finds a way... Endanger us... Endanger us away... Carve out a name... Careful what you say... It's strange of us... Strange of us to fray... Roll on that stone... The ceremonial haze... The shrouded frown is cast away... Fairweathered grace... In that, be known... The crown of thorns... Is sitting all alone... Forbidden haste... What was said to me... Fiction finds its home... In western heresy...

Andromeda 05:23
Andromeda And close your eyes... Don't be afraid to dream And calm your mind I'm here if you should scream And we are meant to be together Everything aligned in perfect time I promise you the world is yours and mine... So stay with me now... Hold my hand and take this vow... And it brings us together... What could tear us apart? All these wounds that we've weathered... All this pain in our hearts... Until death do us part... Take my hand... And walk beside me now... Understand... We'll make it through somehow... And we are meant to be forever... Always in our chosen Paradise... I promise you the world is yours and mine.... So stay with me now... Hold my hand and take this vow... And it brings us together... What could tear us apart? All these wounds that we've weathered... All this pain in our hearts... Until death do us part... Andromeda.... I give myself to you....

The Ghosts Within My love... Return to me... I am afraid of the dark... And the light... Will you stay? My love... Return to me... I am alone in the night... And the day... Take this pain away... My heart... It burns to see... Open your arms, come to me... Set me free... Won't you come and save me? We are the darkness We are the light We are the fortress, The fear and the fight... We are the tortured We are the free We are the ghosts We are fallen beneath... Embracing the hours that slip beneath the dawn... Shadows and voices would carry far beyond... The children of sorrow still weep at every gate... The promise of tomorrow still wrestles with our fate... A dance with our mortality would end in defeat... The burden of circumstance crawls beneath our feet... Are we cursed or are we just the last light to shine... Can we overcome the pain and live our lives divine? Send all the angels... Send all the gods... Send all the saviours of the world and call... Call my name... Speak to me ... Show me what you mean when you take this love from me... Call my name... Come to me... Call the sons and daughters that have fallen by your sword... Call my name... Speak to me... Calling all the children that just sit and wait for war... Call my name... Come to me.... Forever is the cancer that just beckons us to be... Call my name... Speak to me .. Show me how you justify these unforgiven crimes... Call my name.... In the end... We've become... torn again. Haunted... by our sorrows... tortured men... In the end... We've endured... time, again... So empowered... In this hour... Born again... My love... My everything... I am forever in your arms... And I pray... Will you stay? My love... My everything... I have awaited your embrace... And I beg... Can you stay? My heart... I long to be... More than a vivid memory... And I wait... For the day.... My fate... My destiny... I am alone in the night... And I dream.... Won't you come and save me?

Riven Heart 05:46
Riven Heart Reconcile the horror in your eyes... Stay a while and show us what will be... Don't forget the fate of our devotion... All the while we're tethered to your screams... You and I will cross this path again... This ghost of mine has haunted us before... Hold your fears and fight your desperation... All this time it wasn't what it seemed... Fight for time and fight to keep on breathing... Child of mine, the futures what you see... Hold the line... We forfeit our salvation... Still alive, the light begins to shine... Crawling towards a hope we cannot see... Moving forth to cross the lines of belief... Cursed we are... The ones who were forgotten... We'll never be anything but dreams... Wide awake and walking towards the sea... You and I have been here once before... Hand in hand we shed this isolation... Across the sands we fall into the streams...
8.
Angel 05:25
Angel Angel... Stay with me... Angel... Walk this path with me... Hold on... You're not the only one... Stay strong... You know this cannot be undone... Angel... And I know this can't be real... Head down... And your lips are cold and blackened now... Angel... And It's all just so surreal... Cut down... As you fell onto the floor your eyes opened... And my world just fell apart... I'm broken... Did you know you'd break my heart? Angel... I am haunted by this place... This life... It will never be the same again... Angel... And I know this can't be real... Head down... And your lips are cold and blackened now... Angel... And It's all just so surreal... Cut down... As you fell onto the floor your eyes opened... And they were closed forever more... We're broken... And we're afraid to close the door... Angel... They say to heal is to forgive... And Angel... I may forgive but I will never forget...

The Heretic 05:13
The Heretic Cross the throes of time... Cursed in all their crime... Father wake us... won't you make us Drink the blood as wine... Eat the flesh as mine... Father free us... please believe us... Come as one... Deny me before my son... Come undone... The promise of life has begun... Dark the heart of sin... Black the soul within... Brother sway us... won't you make us... Watch the turn begin... Faith has grown so thin... Children fear us... Can't you hear us? Come as one... Deny him before his son... Come undone... The promise of truth has begun... Come as one... Deny him before his son... Come undone... The promise of truth has begun...

Darker Days 06:40
Darker Days Everything I know to be.... Everything I see is just a faded memory... Every time I close my eyes... Every time I search inside my hope turns into fear... Every hour passing by... Every day that dawns just makes me want to disappear... Bridge: You've got the weight of the world... You've had the weight of the world... It's sat upon your shoulders as Your sanity unfurled... Chorus: And you have braved.... Darker days... and we say it's just "your story"... but you lived through the darkness... and we will bring.... Brighter things... and we still see all the glory... we still see the beauty of you... Everything I want for you... Everything I do is just to see you smile again... Every time I'm holding you... Every time we touch I feel the warmth of something new... Every hour passing by... Every day that dawns is just a brand new day with you... Bridge: You've got the weight of the world... You've had the weight of the world... It's sat upon your shoulders as Your sanity unfurled... Chorus: And you have braved.... Darker days... and we say it's just "your story"... but you lived through the darkness... and we will bring.... Brighter things... and we still see all the glory... we still see the beauty of you... We still see the beauty of you...

In Ruins 04:36
In Ruins Bound to me, eternally It is born in me, bred in me Now come to see, my ruin left beneath It burns in me, devastating... Hand to Heart, I never thought I could Fall apart exactly as I would And from the start, I never thought I could Master the art of pure deception What have I to offer In full disclosure Killing you again like some cruel monster. My demons breathe, whispering to me They lie to me, they tell me anything Control the need, powerless and weak My serenity, it's calling unto me What have I to offer In full disclosure Killing you again like some cruel monster.
