Track 01: Things

Lyrics:

Try and speak the things unsaid,
I bet they sounded better in your head.
Now tears and blood, will make the clay,
That paves the way to a better day.

(chorus)
Sinking lower, Sinking fast.
Brittle things that just won’t last.
Tearing at me just won’t do,
Bury all the things of you.

(solo)

You just can’t know, when love is caught.
Until you know what love is not.
Don’t fuck the things, you just can’t break.
Or envy things you just can’t take.

(chorus)
Sinking lower, Sinking fast.
Brittle things that just won’t last.
Tearing at me just won’t do,
Bury all the things of you.

Track 02: The Guest

Lyrics:

Eyes that see no rest,
watch the uninvited guest.
Twist through waves of smoke,
try in vain not to choke.
Voices beckoning,
fear of reckoning.
What lies behind,
what is to come .
Both flesh and bone,
are turning numb.

(chorus)
Does It Speak ( With A Voice )
Does It Feel ( Without Touch )
Does It See ( In The Dark )

Reach for something still,
chaos confuse the will.
Stranger omniscient,
hell is paved with good intent.
Voices whisper clear,
Kronos drawing near.
Like stones they fall,
for all to see.
The stranger becoming me.

(chorus)
Does It Speak ( With A Voice )
Does It Feel ( Without Touch )
Does It See ( In The Dark )

(bridge)
What’s become of us,
and all we think we know like.
Water back to the,
sea we all will flow.
Lessons we all learned,
yet are wiser still.
With empty cups we,
long to fill.

(chorus)
Does It Speak ( With A Voice )
Does It Feel ( Without Touch )
Does It See ( In The Dark )

Eyes that see no rest…….

 

 

 

Track 03: Voice Of December

Lyrics:

The wind doth blow today my love.
And a few small drops of rain.
And I only had but one true love.
In a cold grave she is lain.

Now I wait for her still today.
And Her secrets on my lips, I speak.
An the dead begin to speak, what do they say.
Who sits upon my grave won’t let me sleep.

(chorus)
Its love eternally, then you must set me free,
Until death brings unity.
How long does it take to remember?
The cold Voice Of December.

I still recall the look in her eyes.
But the dark gods have burned her evil soul.
And now why am I so paralyzed?
You can’t fill the void with a larger hole.

(chorus)
Its love eternally, then you must set me free,
Until death brings you to me.
How long does it take to remember?
The cold Voice Of December.

(bridge)

I’m the cold Voice Of December.
How long does it take to remember?

 

 

 

Track o4: Guilty

Lyrics:

An old man thought to keep his gold.
A shield against the coming cold.
But what, cared Death for mortal gains?
And she laughed upon the misers pains.

(chorus)
We’re guilty, We’re alone.
And We’re bled and far from home.
When the wolves cry out for me.
We’re ghastly deathly white.
We are children in the night.
And these, things we claim to be.

The mirror might reflect a little longer.
And the tunnel light even stronger.
No crown or coin can halt the flight.
Or stay the armies of the night.

(chorus)
We’re guilty, We’re alone.
And We’re bled and far from home.
And the wolves cry out for me.
We are ghastly deathly white.
We are children in the night.
And these, things we claim to be.

I’m guilty, I’m alone,
I’m bled and far from home,
And the wolves cry out for me.
We’re ghastly deathly white.
We are children of the night.
And these, things we claim to be.

I’m guilty, I’m alone,
And I’m bled and far from home,
Yeah the wolves, cry out for me.

 

 

 

Track o5: Faded Tattoo

Lyrics:

Sick and tired of feeling well.
A pocket full of sand from the shores of hell.
How many times must I wait?
St. Peter can’t find the keys to the gate.

I’m locked out in the cold.
I’m nailed to the cross and kicked from the fold.
Everything, that I try,
Leaves me one step closer to the day I day.

(chorus)
Hell doesn’t want me,
An Heavens just a room with a view.
Looking back at all my life,
It’s nothing more than a faded tattoo.

If I could run where would I go?
There’s not much call for a hardcore freak show.
No place for fallen kings.
Where does one sell their angels wings?

I’ve got no more tears to sell.
The devil may mind but I don’t care.
Darkness, is coming down.
A shadow falls across this town.

(chorus)
Hell doesn’t want me.
An Heavens just a room with a view.
Looking back at all my life,
It’s nothing more than a faded tattoo.
Hell doesn’t want me.
Heavens just a room with a view.
Looking back at all my life,
It’s nothing more than a faded tattoo.

In the blink of an eye, and it all goes to waste.
When the sting of success, leaves its bitter taste.
So try as you might, but still slips away.
Regardless of which gods to whom you pray.
So swallow your pills, and cock your gun.
… and remembers tomorrows, they never come.

(bridge)

(chorus)
Hell doesn’t want me.
Heavens just a room with a view.
I’m looking back at all my life,
It’s nothing more than a faded tattoo.
Hell doesn’t want me.
Heavens just a room with a view.
Looking back at all my life,
It’s nothing more than a faded tattoo.

Track o6: Zero Hour

Lyrics:

Morning comes way too fast.
Dusk begins and then will pass.
I found that what I wanted most.
Would soon become my only ghost.

(chorus)
We all know the things, you’ve done.
On the run and under the gun.
In the fading light the shadows, will tower.
I’m waiting on the Zero Hour.

Washed away all that you planned.
Like water on footprints of sand.
And people just don’t mold like clay.
They walk and talk and think and say.
The things that people want to hear.
The voice that whispers in your ear.

(chorus)
We all know the things, you’ve done.
On the run and under the gun.
In the fading light the shadows, will tower.
I’m waiting on the Zero Hour.

I stop and think, and now it’s clear
A silent scream no one will hear.
Something only meant for me.
The things that only I can see.
What kind of price, would I pay,
If I wished away the world . . . Today?

(bridge)

An now the past won’t come to haunt us.
We’ll just let it die.
An If it stands before us,
Then we won’t let it by.
Ah flood of rain that never stops.
The crow that circles never drops.
Our lives, they wobble like a top.
Eventually they slow . . .
And Stop!

(Zero Hour Stomp)

 

 

 

Track o7: Seven

Lyrics:

Tear stained, my mind is drained.
I’m overcome with grief and pain.
Why was I hallow?
Oh why was I cold?
I just watched as the apocalypse unfolds.

(chorus)
Wicked grins,
Seven deadly sins.
Nothing ever washed away.
The endless stains of another bad day.

Once I was, an empty shell.
But I clawed my way back up from hell.
You broke me down and had your way.
Now I’m only seven sins away.

(chorus)
Wicked grins,
Seven deadly sins.
Nothing ever washed away.
The endless stains of another bad day.

(bridge)

(chorus)
Wicked grins,
Seven deadly sins.
Nothing ever washed away.
The endless stains of another bad day.
Seven will,
Over kill,
The fabric of who we are betrays.
Seven will,
Over kill,
The fabric of who we are betrays.
Your wicked,
Your wicked,
Your wicked ways.

 

 

 

Track o8: The Game

Lyrics:

Once I found, an empty space.
Packed and left, without a trace.
Changed my face, I changed my name.
Nothing, every stays the same.

(chorus)
No one will recognize.
Or see through my disguise,
Into my eyes.
If I had one more chance to make things right.
I’d take another piece out of the night.

I always seem, to walk away.
And choose the path, of a darker day.
Made my bed, but I slept till dawn.
Now I can feel this coming on.

(chorus)
No one will recognize.
Or see through my disguise,
Into my eyes.
If I had one more chance to make things right.
I’d take another piece out of the night.

(bridge)

Well it’s never reason to realize.
It’s just safer to just criticize,
And tell more lies.
If I had one more chance, I’d stay the same.
I’d never break the cycle of this game.

 

 

 

Track o9: You Say

Lyrics:

Well I say don’t hold your dreams.
Nothings really as it seems.
Time won’t wait, for you or me.
You’ll end up on the hanging tree.
I’ve pushed myself, further than…
Any other mortal man, (immortal man).

(chorus)
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.
No, No, No, No, No.
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.

I say don’t hold your fear.
You’re long gone but I’m still here.
I woke up once, and saw the end.
The time at hand is around the bend.
You think, that you understand.
But you don’t, even have a plan, (or give a damn).

(chorus)
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.
No, No, No, No, No.
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.

Look you in your fearful eye.
Bite your tongue and don’t deny.
Maybe now the truth you’ll see.
If we could agree to disagree.
Don’t bring, me down.
Or twist my words around.
Don’t bring, me down.
Or twist my words around, (don’t bring me down).

(chorus)
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.
No, No, No, No, No.
(You Say!) . . . I’m not the one.
(You Say!) . . . That It can’t be done.
No, No, No, No, No.
You say,
You say,
You say It can’t be done.

 

 

 

Track 10: Day In December

Lyrics:

It was 3am when I awoke today
Seems I forgot there was hell to pay
The clock will stop and the age will end
Tonight no more epics will begin
We wrote it down on a calendar ‘round
Before we all went underground
So now we wait and we watch the sea
Where the feathered serpent’s return will be

(chorus)
Even if we wanted this
You broke the rules, I stole a kiss
It paved the way for our demise
Fools pretend, then act surprised

So now I wait and I watch the sky
I search for what, and I wonder why
History never makes much sense
It’s easier not to choose than to walk the fence
History repeats yet there’s no one to see
The emptiness left inside of me
If wine you want, bring grapes to press
And if miracles, a stronger faith posses

(chorus)
Even if we wanted this
You broke the rules, I stole a kiss
It paved the way for our demise
Fools pretend, then act surprised

One day in December
It all burns to a cinder
Falling down like broken glass
Fading fast it soon will pass
Even if we wanted this… it too…
It too will pass

(chorus)
Even if we wanted this
You broke the rules, I stole a kiss
It paved the way for our demise
Fools pretend, then act surprised
