Track Name: Setting Son
Seal your heart in a safe
Take it down to a lonely place
Dig a grave bury all you love
Soon you're shaken up
The beat is rising up.

Be the one you've wanted all along
See the boy, a setting son
Be the one you've wanted all along
Take a lesson
See that I am the one.

Do you long for the taste
See the blood rushing to your face
Play the game till we give it all
There's no need to stall
We're about to fall

Be the one you've wanted all along
See the boy, a setting son
Be the one you've wanted all along
Take a lesson
See that I am the one.

Breath spin a trap, bodies in motion
Breath spin a trap, bodies in motion

Be the one you've wanted all along
See the boy, a setting son
Be the one you've wanted all along
Take a lesson
See that I am the one.

Be the one
Track Name: Pretend
Girl we've been missing all our lives underground
You just watch me through these walls some days
Babe there is no debate, we should just get payed
Cause there's no salvation

Come meet my friends, live a little
Drink and dance all you want
Reach the end, live a little
Just pretend

Take all the things we used to do turn away
Throw it in my Mercedes baby
Waste there's no need to wait we can all just take
Cause there's no salvation

Come meet my friends, live a little
Drink and dance all you want
Reach the end, live a little
Just pretend

Taste of the life and I want a bite
Bathe in the light of a gilded rite
Home is a place we can always buy
And take a big slice

When days wane
I won't feel regret
I won't feel a thing
Cause there's no salvation

Come live a little
Track Name: Nostalgia Kills
See her freeze so I can last
I want to feel I'm not a reptile
Terms and deeds I won't get back
I'm not here with you or want that

I'm living in the past
That's all I'm good at
I'm living in the past
That's where I'm at

Center screen so lies can cast
I want to see a life in the past
Washed out scenes I wont get back
I'm not here with you or want that

I'm living in the past
That's all I'm good at
I'm living in the past
That's where I'm at

Sit on the throne of all I've made
Nothing but lost days
Tired and cut the world will fade
Leaving just your fate

I'm living in the past
Track Name: Echos Haunt
Echos haunt the basement
Floating shapes we chase them
Ah-oh-ah

Take these thoughts erase them
Lacerate and waste them
Ah-oh-ah

How can you live in this house
When the day ends
How can you live in this house
Can't awaken

Echo hearts await them
See your chance and take them
Ah-oh-ah

Essence on the pavement
Like it was when we meet
Ah-oh-ah

How can you live in this house
When the day ends
How can you live in this house
Can't awaken

And we go, and we go
Howling about the yard

How can you live in this house
When the day ends
How can you live in this house
Can't awaken
Track Name: Gallons
Gallons of stars
Gallons apart from where we left you
When all has changed all's the same

I know its safe
To turn away, to shield you from pain
Through broken walls we heard him say

Seems Like we're never close
Seems Like the heart is just a hole
It's just the way we cope alone
There's no connection

Seems like we're never close
Seems Like we're better left alone
Seeing our way through red tones

Your words they stay
They paint the walls and carry your name
Your little note wont go away

Seems like we're never close
Seems like the heart is just a hole
It's just the way we cope alone
There's no connection

Seems like we're never close
Seems like we're better left alone
Seeing our way through red tones
Track Name: Shameless Words
The trail is cold or am I mistaken
I never see you, I never see you
Had it all, fleeting life, the sensation
Nothing feels new, nothing feels new

Time can wait to lead the invasion
Crush hopes with the wait of persuasion
The tide will rise and abate truth
The cold, the fate that awaits you

Shameless words in the dark
Tell me that's all we are
Secret Tongues take you
Shake and awake you
X2

Twinkling with the black of temptation
See your way through see your way through
Cut in two with a crack of frustration
Where you gone to, where you gone to

Time can wait to lead the invasion
Crush hopes with the wait of persuasion
The tide will rise and abate truth
The cold, the fate that await you

Shameless words in the dark
Tell me that's all we are
Secret Tongues take you
Shake and awake you
X2
Track Name: Speak Armageddon
Oh King Kong you beat me to it
Cities burn raze up for days
Leaders turn speak Armageddon
Like words from a vagrant

Kingdom come, we never knew it
Twisted tongue, to shield our pain
Banners hung, we're turning to it
In search of a vagrant

See our love taken
When will we face it
How will we make it
Were we just faking
See our life shaken
How will we face it
Oh just take me in

I wake up, pray for silence
Wait for hope that never came
Secret words that claim another
All hail innovation

Oh King Kong you beat me too it
Cities burn raze up for days
Leaders turn speak Armageddon
Like words from a vagrant

See our love taken
When will we face it
How will we make it
Were we just faking
See our life shaken
How will we face it
Oh just take me in
Track Name: No Daylight
Speak again, drown my words in the ocean
Touch again, I'll wait till then,
When you tear apart this life that I've spun

All light goes, all I know, isolation
I'm not alive to save,
Dead in the night, desolation

No Daylight, its time to wake up
No Daylight, its time to wake up

In your gaze the sky goes grey and the rains comes
Air's heavy with sweat and fate
We can taste it on the tip of our tongues

Kill the day, shadows escape as the moon's hung
Say you'll stay, keep light at bay till the nights done

No Daylight, its time to wake up
No Daylight, its time to wake up
Track Name: Wölfe
big eyes little doubt
lay down to wake up
at odds with yourself
you know the one to shake up

Guarantee the worlds for you
its not for me I breath
The wolves out tonight

Guarantee the worlds for you
its not for me I breath
The wolves out tonight

cold enough to be in heaven

big eyes little doubt
lay down to wake up
at odds with yourself
you know the one to shake up

atone
as it falls we are scraping at the walls
no bones
at odds with your self

Guarantee the worlds for you
its not for me I breath
The wolves out tonight

Guarantee the worlds for you
its not for me I breath
The wolfs out tonight

cold enough to be in heaven
Track Name: Kings
The two of us
We're picking at the bones
Shot scenes for old
Whoa I'm sold

That face I know
It's stuck in my old skull
Please be all mine
Whoa

Walk on
Walk on
Walk on
Walk on

City won't go
The two of us should fold
The kings have all gone
Whoa

Take off your clothes
Till I am whole

I take it all
Through shadows I suppose
They cover oceans
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

City won't go
You'll see, it's all too cold
I'm just a black hole
Whoa

Inside
Inside
