1. CAUSE AND EFFECT

Remember me I’m a question of time, the one you never asked
Remember me it’s been a while but I’m back with answers at last

What goes up comes down
Crashes down to the ground
What goes up come down
Someday turned into now

A means to an end
An end to a means
It’s cause and effect
I’m here to come clean
A means to an end
An end to a means
It’s cause and effect
Gonna make you bleed

C’mon collect the bitter crop you have left for the wind to suck
You can’t expect your harvest to rot in the sun for crows to pluck

A means to an end
An end to a means
It’s cause and effect
I’m here to come clean
A means to an end
An end to a means
It’s cause and effect
Gonna make you bleed

What goes up comes down
Crashes down to the ground
It’s cause and effect
Something that you can’t reject
What goes up comes down
Crashes to the ground




2. BRING ON THE FLOOD

You came with a grin and promised me
Heaven yeah a glimpse of eternity, the key
Show me your flesh and I will bake believe
Everything's not the way it used to be, believe

Come share your dirty secrets with me
Take a sip of my sweet sweet remedy, honey
Open your lips I know what you need
Loosen up I can see you’re incomplete

Bring on the flood
Show me your mind
Bring on the flood
We’ll be one of a kind

Gimme more, give me your money
And I’ll surely make you scream happily, you’ll see
Say what you want beg on your knees
Tell me how you would like me to make you bleed

Bring on the flood
Show me your mind
Bring on the flood
We’ll be one of a kind

If I can take away your fears then I can bring you to tears easily
Now give me your heart so I can tear it apart

Bring on the flood
Show me your mind
Bring on the flood
We’ll be one of a kind




3. NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY

Hurt me
Make me pay for the things I have you do
Make me bleed
For getting you confused
Tell her
It’s nothing it’s nothing it’s all a lie
Talk is cheap but it can buy you time

Naughty naughty naughty me
So I stole the key
And broke your integrity
Naughty naughty naughty me
Yeah I plea guilty
But I’m not sorry

Sometimes
There’s only forward by crossing the line
Don’t be shy
Losing control’s no crime
Behold
Some day everything comes down to the core
But I don’t care
All I want now is more

Naughty naughty naughty me
So I stole the key
And broke your integrity
Naughty naughty naughty me
Yeah I plea guilty
But I’m not sorry

Naughty naughty naughty me
I plea guilty
Naughty naughty naughty me
I’m not sorry

Naughty naughty naughty me
So I stole the key
And made you feel guilty
But don’t pretend to be sorry
You’re dirty just like me
You’re naughty just like me
We both plea guilty




4. ANHEDONIA

It’s not disgrace
No not deceit
That make a stricken heart expire
Bereft of meaning
Misery on display
It seems best to conclude the fight

But tell me who if not you
Could pull that head out of the noose?

Anhedonia
It ain’t what you say, it’s what you don’t do
Anhedonia
You’ve had it coming cause
The truth is ugly like you

A sugar-coated
Smile won’t do the job
Let it freeze you into cold blind doubt
You play the cheapest
Cheap trick of them all
It seems best to close everything out

But tell me who if not you
Could choose the actions that you do?

Anhedonia
It ain’t what you say, it’s what you don’t do
Anhedonia
You’ve had it coming cause
The truth is ugly like you

You might have given some more blood
Dragged yourself through some more mud
Though you can’t recall ever pushing your luck
It keeps eating you up
You feel stuck
You feel fucked
But you’re not the victim

Slowly the poison the bloodstream fills
It’s not the lies, it’s the truth that kills

Anhedonia
It ain’t what you say, it’s what you don’t do
Anhedonia
You’ve had it coming cause
The truth is ugly like you

Ugly like you




5. BURN SOME GASOLINE

Enticed with plastic love
Standing on unsolid ground
Tempted to think it’s enough
Hell, my head keeps spinning round
No these roots aren’t place-bound
Gravity pulls me down

Untie me ritual
Give way restraint, let go
Loss is inevitable
Let’s burn some gasoline
Burn down the whole damn city
Destroy that part of me, now that I’m

Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Time has no meaning away from home
Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Life changes we’re bound to pass like foam

Burn, burn, burn

The engine’s running loud
Say nothing incipient doubt
Don’t look back, make up ground
Last drops of gasoline
Nothing’s the way it seems
Don’t matter where I’ve been, now that I’m

Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Time has no meaning away from home
Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Life changes we’re bound to pass like foam

Burn, burn, burn

We who thirst never find fill
Lust unleashes a deathly will
We can’t sit still
We can’t sit still
We can’t sit still

Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Time has no meaning away from home
Free, now that I’m free, burn gasoline
Life changes we’re bound to pass like foam

Let’s burn some gasoline




6. THE PEEP HOLE

You got every shade of color to gray
Before your eyes dolled up to play
I’m not crazy though you like to think so
It doesn’t matter, it’s just a show, I lay

Twenty four hours a day naked on your silver plate
Twenty four seven indignities
Through the peephole
You’ve got gun control

Now pull the trigger, turn on the light
I’ll be your target for the rest of the night
I won’t protest, you know I’m vain
Been told the infamy is just a part of this game
I lay

Twenty four hours a day naked on your silver plate
Twenty four seven indignities
Through the peephole
You’ve got gun control

Close your eyes to see
What a shit-naive dream
You chose to believe
But now you’re in too deep

I got every shade of color to gray
To paint myself the way you want me to be
You’re not crazy, though I like to think so
It doesn’t matter, it’s just a show so

Twenty four hours a day naked on your silver plate
Twenty four seven indignities
Twenty fours a day footloose so I can’t escape
Twenty four seven on your dismay
Through the peep hole
You’ve got gun control




7. RING A BELL

I’m a scream that can’t be heard
I’m in between your every word
I’m the clay that shapes your hand
For actions you don’t understand

Let me introduce myself
As the maker of your hell
I’m behind the lies you sell
The key to your prison cell
Let me introduce myself
Remember the day you fell
The damage did you no well
Tell me does that
Ring a bell

I am love that feels like hate
A craving you’re trying to sedate
I’m a sign so easily misread
A dissonance that fucks with your head

Let me introduce myself
As the maker of your hell
I’m behind the lies you sell
The key to your prison cell
Let me introduce myself
Remember the day you fell
The damage did you no well
Tell me does that
Ring a bell

Let the pain grow on
You upward through your feet
Through your knuckles
Straight up to your head
When it’s there you will know who you are

Ring a bell




8. CLOSURE

Away

Closure
This is the end

Tomorrow he’s such a deceiver
A prophet to all blind-fold believers
You thought that his cheat could never fail
You thought that his cheat would never grow stale
Misery she is your favorite whore
She’s licking your wounds while you beg for more
I’m done with playing games, done taking the blame
This is war

Who are you to assume the last words belong to you?
Who are you to confuse affection with abuse?
Who are you to accuse me for mistakes that you do?
Away

Closure
This is the end

You complain you gave, you gave, and you gave
But it ain’t consistent to mime the slave
My apology’s what you wanna hear
My submissive sorry for all those years
Your pound of nothing’s all you shall have
The last drops of wine, my cigarette ash
Yours too this last day, yours too what remains
Don’t look away

Who are you to assume the last words belong to you?
Who are you to confuse affection with abuse?
Who are you to accuse me for mistakes that you do?
Away

The moons decay, the suns decline
Still water never turns to wine
Loved like a madman, loved so blind
Possessed another’s mind
Got red with rage and pale with lust
Beauty withers along with trust
Life ever changes cause it must

Cut with the contempt cause this is the end
Stop to pretend cause this is the end
Again and again till you comprehend
Listen my friend, cut with the contempt and stop to pretend cause this is the end

Who are you to assume the last words belong to you?
Who are you to confuse affection with abuse?
Who are you to accuse me for mistakes that you do?
Away




9. AND THEN THERE WAS SILENCE

Facts against the world
No one breathes a word
The moment sags quietly
Under the weight of dirt
Shadows unfold
Without a soul
Some secrets remain untold
Nobody must know

And then there was silence
Passive aggressive violence
So damn loud it’s hard to bear
But the machine keeps on rolling
For silence to cut through the air
And you don’t care

Repeat the downfall
Until the death bell tolls
Breaking all brick walls
Walls meant to stand tall
Are there armies
Legions somewhere out there
Waiting to brave apathy
Defy hypocrisy?

And then there was silence
Passive aggressive violence
So damn loud it’s hard to bear
But the machine keeps on rolling
For silence to cut through the air
And you don’t care

A mask for a face
Without a future
Keep marching in line
Never to ask yourself when or why
The dead ash pit of sky
Had sucked out all life

And then there was silence
Passive aggressive violence
So damn loud it’s hard to bear
But the machine keeps on rolling
For silence to cut through the air
And you don’t care




10. TEMPLE DOWN

It’s not the right time to lay down and sleep sound
Birds of death have taken flight, they’re now unbound

Release me vanity
Tear the temple down
Tear it down to the ground
We’ve chased a dream
For what it seemed
Tear the temple down
Watch it crumble to the ground

One final sigh till lists of delusions fly
Into the cool of a dark winter sky

Release me vanity
Tear the temple down
Tear it down to the ground
We’ve chased a dream
For what it seemed
Tear the temple down
Watch it crumble to the ground

Can you hear the sound?
Tear the temple down
Time is running out
Tear the temple down

Down

Release me vanity
Tear the temple down
Tear it down to the ground
We’ve chased a dream
For what it seemed
Tear the temple down
Watch it crumble to the ground

Come take a bow
As the temple’s crumbling to the ground
Make a new vow now
Wave goodbye, we’re going down
Down




11. YOUR FOOL

A hundred questions, indecisions
A hundred denials we won’t even mention
Now I’m in bed, in bed with a lie
Won’t you say goodnight to your

Fool fool fool fool I’m your
Fool fool, there’s nothing I can do
I feel just like a fool

A pocket full of whys, reasons to mend ties
A list of excuses to bridge the divide
I fell in love with a tainted smile
Won’t you sing lullabies to your

Fool fool fool fool I’m your
Fool fool, there’s nothing I can do
I feel just like a fool

I’m your, I’m your, I’m your whore

Fool fool fool fool I’m your
Fool fool, there’s nothing I can do
I feel just like a fool

Now I’m in bed with a lie
Won’t you come say good-bye
To your fool, to your toy, to your bitch
To your fool, to your toy, your idiot




12. THE DOOM OF HER POWER

When her Gods die
She’ll breathe her last sigh
It’s the doom of her power
A twilight alive
When her temples crumble
All the stars start to tumble
The sky will turn black
As she moves into battle

Do you still want to know why?
Do you still want to cry?

Swallow the sun
Swallow the moon
An endless winter will be her doom

It’s the axe age
The sword age, wolf age
Before everything goes down
She’ll succumb to rage
Nine steps before worlds collide
Across the divide
Nine steps for the longest time
Is it the end or a sign?

Do you still want to know why?
Do you still want to cry?

Swallow the sun
Swallow the moon
An endless winter will be her doom

Swallow the sun
Swallow the moon
No never again will her scarlet bloom

The doom of her power
Is the moment of truth
There’s nothing she can do
The doom of her power
Is the end of her youth
No words for an excuse
As earth reappears with a sunlit blue
Everything becomes new

Swallow the sun
Swallow the moon
An endless winter will be her doom




13. GRACE (JEFF BUCLEY COVER)

There’s the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
Well it’s my time coming I’m not afraid
Afraid to die

My fading voice sings of love
But she cries to the clicking of time

Wait in the fire

And she weeps on my arm
Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
Oh drink a bit of wine we both my go tomorrow
Oh my love

And the rain is falling
And I believe my time has come
It reminds me of the pain I might leave
Leave behind

Wait in the fire

And I feel them drown my name
So easy to know and forget with this kiss
I’m not afraid to go
But it goes so slow
So slow

Wait in the fire




14. ELEGY

Into the ebb
Into the flow
Seasick beyond control
While earth lies still
Giving no answers
I’m rocking to and fro
Where to go

Subside tranquilly
This song is sung silently
And ode to mediocrity
The soundtrack to shame
Subside tranquilly
This song is an elegy
If I can’t find clarity
There’s nothing to say

Into abundance
Yet with disdain
How to find the words to explain
The sweetest poison
Is never sweet enough
To ease the throbbing pain
Wash it away

Subside tranquilly
This song is sung silently
And ode to mediocrity
The soundtrack to shame
Subside tranquilly
This song is an elegy
If I can’t find clarity
There’s only escape

Come raging sea, wash me away
Let me drown in you, seize the pain

Subside tranquilly
I can’t sing this silently
And I can’t seem to find peace
Keep wasting my days
Subside tranquilly
This song is an elegy
I’m losing my dignity
I thirst for a change
I’m waiting for the sea
To wash it all away

Wash it away
Make it okay

Subside tranquilly
This song is sung silently
This song is an elegy
Meant to ease the pain
Subside tranquilly
Within lives the enemy
Within lies the remedy
I’ll be okay
