Lyrics

1. ALERION

Fuck This!

Cross my heart,
I hope you die
Left by the wrong side
Karmas a bitch,
Right?

Cross my heart,
I hope you die
Left by the wrong side
Karamas us a bitch
Right?




2. FINAL EPISODE (LET'S CHANGE THE CHANNEL)

Oh my God,
Oh my God,
If only he knew,
If only he knew,
If only he knew about the world
Without the bullshit and the lies.

We could've saved him,
They could've saved me.
But instead I'm here drowning
In my own fucking mind,
And i'll be damned if you're the death of me.

Blood and ink stain the walls,
Silently with bloodied knuckles, carry on,
Hoping it's not too wrong.
You said the nights were far too long.
Honey, it's just the start of it.

Oh my God,
If he only knew.
Oh my God,
If only he knew,
If only he knew,
If only he knew.
Just stand up and scream,
The tainted clock is counting down.
You gave in to me,
Would you say the nights are far too long now?

Oh my God,
(oh my fucking God)
The tears that stain my cheek
Must me look weak,
I wear them proudly, I wear them proud.

Just stand up and scream,
The tainted clock is counting down.
You gave in to me,
Would you say the nights are far too long now?

Your knife,
My back.
My gun,
Your head.

Your knife,
My back.
My gun,
Your head.

You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You scared?

You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You scared, you scared,
You scared, you?

You need a doctor baby,
You scared?

You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You need a doctor baby,
You scared?




3. A CANDLELIT DINNER WITH INAMORTA

This isn’t over baby don’t believe a word they said
But then
She takes a moment to ponder
To wonder what could’ve been given another chance
To find the light in the darkness and way out of this
If only she saw what I could see
She takes a moment to stumble to her feet
If I was there to hold her hand
If only she saw what I saw she’d get out of this one
She’d get out of here
What burns the most is that you lied right to my face
And still I take your hand to set you free
With eyes closed
Her heart breaks
And after it all
She brought this on herself
For me, for you, the fallen, save her
For me, for us, for good, save her
She falls before me
With eyes closed
Her heart breaks
And after it all
She brought this on herself




4. NOBODY DONT DANCE NO MORE

I’m alive
Watch yourself I’m taking over
The cracks in the pavement don’t break my stride
I step lightly
I’m alive
I can’t believe what i’ve become
I won’t stop breathing
Your world is falling at your feet
I won’t stop breathing
Oh my god
I can’t believe what i’ve become
I won’t stop breathing
Your world is falling at your feet
I won’t stop breathing
Just ‘cause you’re breathing
Don’t mean you’re alive
Excuses are useless when your mouth’s stapled shut
You’re drowning in the back room
So this is what it feels to waltz?
I must be dreaming
Demise so surreal




5. HEY THERE MR.BROOKS (FEATURING SHAWN MILKE OF ALESANA) (FT. SHAWN MILKE)

Oh, you're back to me and the hunger returns
I told myself I was done for good
All the memories of all the pictures burned
I see them dancing
My heart begins to pound

I didn't make a sound
They didn't see me coming
The lights are left on
The curtains left wide

One scream it's over
I lay them side by side
Holding each other

I'll be there in the morning with a smile on my face
I'll be there in the morning to start it all again

Boy you caught me red handed
You've got no fucking clue what you just got yourself into
Panic runs down your leg, seeing me kill again
You just got yourself caught and you don't even know it
On the drive you get the rush and pull the gun on me
We make the stop, it's time to be set free

Oh, the bullets gone
I take the spade I slit your throat
You fall into your grave I cover up my tracks I'm done
I won't kill again
I said that's it I'm done

I'll be there in the morning with a smile on my face
I'll be there in the morning to start it all again

No she's
Daddy's little girl
She wasn't meant to be another me
But it's the scissors to my fucking throat

No she's
Daddy's little girl
She wasn't meant to be another me
But it's the scissors to my fucking throat




6. HIATUS

(instrumental)




7. IF YOU CAN'T RIDE TWO HORSES AT ONCE...YOU SHOULD GET OUT OF THE CIRCUS

I can't see through the tears in my eyes (x2)
I can't breathe

I feel I failed
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
To make you shine

They said this could never happen
They said we could never be
Are you telling me you listened?

I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine (x3)

So there's no you and me
And we can't live this way forever
You said you'd run away (x2)
You said you'd run away with me
You'd run away

That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world
That tied us down
That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world
That kept us apart

So now this is over and the world falls upon me
I never expected to be here alone
The shadows are forming as we burst into flames
Why does this end this way




8. A SINGLE MOMENT OF SINCERITY

False tales lies of a washed up prom queen
Why’d you tell me everything was fine?
Everything was okay?

Get on your knees
Oh, why you tore me up?
No, why everything’s dead inside
Oh, you could’ve told me, at least I would’ve known
No, you should’ve told me and carved it in my bones

Tear out my eyes to remove the gift of sight
Proves ever cursing still, the light can’t find us here
Painted red my eyes are burning
And still you hide behind the waves

Your silence is so haunting
Your words relentless, burying in
My heart betrays me for a last first kiss goodbye
Fall asleep and jar one eye

Spilling every lie you’ve spilled before
But I’m not forgiving you
What happened between us, what can I give to save us
Being righteous isn’t quite enough
What happened between us, what can I give to save me

These oceans are far between our hearts (these oceans are)
The breathing has got too hard

Scream with the voice of an angel
Lie in the name of the gospel
Smile in the face of your victims, smile for me
This is my last request to you
Hold my breath
I was clutching on to disaster
Hold my breath




9. NOT THE AMERICAN AVERAGE

(1,2,3,4)
All the things that you said was it all in my head?

Come on baby
Keep it down, honey hush your lips
Clothes trailing from the backdoor to the bedroom
And I don’t even know your name

(Woo) Give me all you’ve got
Make this night worth my time
Make this worth my time

Oh what I would give to live this night again
I knew when I first saw you
You’d fuck like a whore
You’d fuck like a whore
Hope they hear you screaming for more

Your thighs were made for cheeks to graze
My lips, your poison
They bring you down to your knees
Your thighs were made for cheeks to graze
My lips, your poison
They bring you down to your knees

(Oh, come on)

Girl get down
It’s almost over
Take it all the way (Oh!)

You stupid fucking whore

And after all of all my dreaming being only you
You’re standing there baby
Oh the things that I could do
Back to the wall with a drink in my hand
Back it up, baby; ride, ride, ride

One step too late
And I never told you (never told you)
That I can't take another disappointment
Breathing and grasping
All leads to another messy ending
Breathing and grasping
All leads to another messy ending

With your back against the wall
With your face buried in the pillow
I see you cold, I feel you heartless

Bitch, you stupid fucking bitch
You stupid fucking bitch

Fucking bitch




10. I USED TO HAVE A BEST FRIEND (BUT THEN HE GAVE ME AN STD)

You said you cried a thousand times
But I don't believe a word of it
You loved it when my heart stopped
So you start to listen

Just sit and listen
Don't test my words

Just believe,
I did believe.
Just believe,
I did believe.
Who am I to say I miss you?

Fall Amy fly
You can't lie your way out of this one
Fall Amy fly
You can't lie your way out of this one

Put faith aside
We have know way of knowing how short out tie is
Before the Devil knows your dead
There will be blood
There will be blood
Now you know just how I feel

Fall Amy, fly,
You can't lie your way out of this one.
Fall Amy, fly,
You can't lie your way out of this one.

They fall, as they stand at the end of it all.
And after it all, the looks of it
Say its in itself across the lake.

Oh baby just maybe you're not the one
You never were
It was all sympathy and simple words of nothingness

This is where you die,
This is where you.




11. A PROPHECY

How stubborn are the scars when they won't fade away?
Or just a gentle reminder that now are better days?

We'll be home soon, so dry your eyes
You'll be okay,
You'll be okay

Oh My God
The water is rising, its rising
You just have to believe in me
Failing that i'll ride this storm alone
We can still make it out
FUCK

I can help you through this
But you have to take my hand
I can take you home
Take my hand
Take my hand

I should've known the tides are getting higher
We can still survive
They think we're drowning but our heads are still above the waves
Above the waves

I should've known the tides are getting higher
We can still survive
Above the waves
I should've known the tides are getting higher
I should've known the tides are getting higher
We can still survive

You never said goodbye (Goodbye)
You never said goodbye (Goodbye)
You never said goodbye (Goodbye)
You never said goodbye (Goodbye)
And now your on your own

You never said goodbye
You never said goodbye
Goodbye




12. I WAS ONCE, POSSIBLY, MAYBE, PERHAPS A COWBOY KING

I see myself there waiting by the roadside
Laid claim to nothing but a black bag and the attire I stand in
No name, no history
Just a target on my temple and a hole in my head
I could’ve been one of kings
The shell of a boy of the man that I used to be
A monkey in a man suit
I stand here as nothing to you
Wind me up and watch me go
Lay down your guns
Cut me from ear to ear
Eye for an eye
The glass is long gone broken
I walk this road alone
No thanks to you
Load up your six-shot baby
Put it to my head
Pull the trigger, blank I’d figured
Put it to me, dead
Lay your guns down let me die (scars)
Why can’t you just let me die (don’t)
Lay your guns down let me die (heal)
Why can’t you just let me die (when)
Lay your guns down let me die (you keep)
Scars don’t heal when you keep cutting
Always cutting
Cutting deeper
Always deeper
Scars don’t heal when you keep cutting




13. WHEN EVERYDAY'S THE WEEKEND

Another Sunset
What a way to start another messy night
Another drink
Another bar
Another girl inside my arms
I can't see straight anymore
Just got kicked out the fucking door

It's all easy
It's all easy
That's how we fucking ROLL

Tonight's our night like every night before
Until we fall
Until we fall

We'll drink you under
The fucking table
Rack 'em up
Put 'em down
Rack 'em up
Put 'em down

I like to party
You like to party
We like to party
All night long
I like to party
You like to party
We like to party
All fucking year
