Track Name: Never Enough
Look at the love that you cast down
I would stop dreaming but you’ve cast your spell
Bathed in red, in crimson light
Screamed at your ghost all through the night

Guard the eyes that catch on me
Hit the ones that fall beneath

When you rise in the sound
When you move me around
Take the vision I gave you
It is never enough, it is never enough

Live in the ashes of the underground
Pray for your mercy there to be found
The words repeated, the age the same
I crave to worship when I speak your name

Guard the eyes that catch on me
Hit the ones that fall beneath

When you rise in the sound
When you move me around
Take the vision I gave you
It is never enough, it is never enough
Track Name: See The Light
I don’t feel well
But I rarely do
In my human shell
Watch it fade and bloom

Just a skin cell
It’s your prison too
Till that funeral bell
Rings high o’er you

Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?

It’s a lonely hell
We’re born into
Since that angel fell
Making dark moves

Oh the death knell
Coming for a fool
With no soul to sell
It’s a bitter truth

Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?

We’ll all live in the silver lining
Drink champagne with the gun resigning
All we are and all we’ll be
Will all come as we’re divining

See that spirit dwell
With the striking view
Got an urge to quell
Before you even knew

Watch your body swell
Nothing to soothe
Swear to never tell
Never mind pursue

Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?

We’ll all live in the silver lining
Drink champagne with the gun resigning
All we are and all we’ll be
Will all come as we’re divining
Track Name: Ash & Coal
You are the keeper of my time
You are the taster of my soul
You are the holder of my mind
You are the giver of the coal

You're the twisted back on bended knee
Blackened lighthouse no one can see
Trace the ash upon my head
And pray that one of us is dead

You are the owner of my lies
You are the lover of my woes
You are the killer of faith in kind
You are the reaper of what you've sown

You're the twisted back on bended knee
Blackened lighthouse no one can see
Trace the ash upon my head
And pray that one of us is dead
Track Name: The Night (Is Yours)
Your absence speaks louder than words
You split my lips apart and your tongue breaks my heart
Finding my breath, aching slowly in my chest
Each battle is a war, bells rung for the death toll

Your heart is cold, but your hands are warm
You've loved me twice, but I'll never learn
My wrists are tied and my throat is sore
Daylight is gone, but the night is yours

Your silence not golden, more painted blood red
In the hollow of my ears, same as all the years
Straining for the sound of you coming back around
Prostrated in your room, quiet like a tomb

Your heart is cold, but your hands are warm
You've loved me twice, but I'll never learn
My wrists are tied and my throat is sore
Daylight is gone, but the night is yours

Your kindness isn't charming anymore
Each word leaves a sting even when you don't mean a thing
Nothing has changed while you give yourself away
I'll just pretend it will still be me in the end

Your heart is cold, but your hands are warm
You've loved me twice, but I'll never learn
My wrists are tied and my throat is sore
Daylight is gone, but the night is yours
Track Name: The One
Hold on, I can’t take
All that you will bring
Hold back, that last kiss
I’ll take one more swing

Say what you will
I won’t be the one
Say what you want
I can’t be the one

Come on, I won’t stay
For what we can’t be
Come back, one more kiss
Keep that part of me

Say what you will
I won’t be the one
Say what you want
I can’t be the one
Track Name: Is This What You Want?
Is this what you want?

Hands tied behind my head
Dressed all up in red
Doing what I'm told
Til the blood runs cold
Holding on to metal, metal holding on to me
Never really asking you to ever set me free

Is this what you want?

To writhe where devils tread
Form circles 'round that ancient bed
Like a familiar painted gold
Moved to sing of fortunes old
Like a specter, like a ghost, with an elegant pose
Falling down to the ground, to the ground

Is this what you want?

Should I be something else?
Should I be someone else?
Slaves to the growing need
Down on our broken knees

Is this what you want?

Left to hang on by a thread
Til the silvered word I've said
Our dignity bought, our dignity sold
Til repetition takes its hold
It will never be enough, it will always be too much
When it drops from grasp, from hand, from clutch, from grasp, from hand

Is this what you want?

Should I be something else?
Should I be someone else?
Slaves to the growing need
Down on our broken knees
Track Name: Anyone But You
I’ve hypnotized and mesmerized
But you can’t seem to see
All the shame, you’re to blame
Every time I leave
I don’t want anyone but you

No surprise, I can’t describe
How you make me feel
You only came to stoke the flame
Show me what’s still real
I don’t want anyone but you

I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want anyone but you

Anytime, every time
Held against my will
So unkind, but so divine
Always worth the kill
I don’t want anyone but you

Your only prize, I can’t disguise
All you let me be
So in love, shadows above
Baby, you're so mean
But I don’t want anyone but you

I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want anyone but you

After all this time, the reasons why
I come to get my fill
Unholy drug, my sacred love
Swallowed every pill
Cause I don't want anyone but you

I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want, I don’t want
Anyone, anyone but you
I don’t want anyone but you
Track Name: Bruises
Oh, I love when I find
The bruises you’ve left behind
Living like a blood kiss
From the mouth grips and vessel rips

Give to me your marks
Something I can keep
Something that goes deep
After you’ve taken your leave

Oh, I love when I see
The scratches you have made on me
Dragged long and angry and red
Like the monster your fingernails fed

Give to me your marks
Something I can keep
Something that goes deep
After you’ve taken your leave
Track Name: My Favorite Sin
Are you close to heaven?
Or just near the end?
Are you high and touching light?
Or just your resting bed?

Are you finding water's edge?
Or just floating up?
May I take your picture, love?
Or do you need it all?

I want to hang you like the stars in the sky
I want to burn you like a funeral pyre
I want to drain you like a bottle of gin
I want to kill you like my favorite sin

Are you a dusty skeleton?
Or has your skin just gone?
Can I watch you smoke alone?
Til the morning comes?

Are you living in the night?
Or just wasting days?
Can I take you home, love?
To live beside old ways?

I want to hang you like the stars in the sky
I want to burn you like a funeral pyre
I want to drain you like a bottle of gin
I want to kill you like my favorite sin

What do you see
When you’re far away from me
What do you see
When you’re far away from me

I want to hang you like the stars in the sky
I want to burn you like a funeral pyre
I want to drain you like a bottle of gin
I want to kill you like my favorite sin
Track Name: Down To None
Be still
Don’t move
They know
Who you’re talking to

In death
Cold arms
Please stop
Sound the alarm

Pulsing sounds
In my ears
They tally up
What’s left of my years

After all
It’s down to none
The time I have left
Is not yet done

Kept still
Can’t move
My eyes
Can’t hold on to you

All around
Cold breath
Silent vow
Found in the depths

Pulsing sounds
In my ears
They tally up
What’s left of my years

After all
It’s down to none
The time I have left
Is not yet done
