It Gave Way 04:38
Come with me they’re sleeping We’ll be ghosts in the night We’ll offer up our demons The vicious will be kind tonight Faith gave way to fortune She was dressed in white We were faced with fate then As she moved through the light At night the women cry out Come with me they’re sleeping We’ll be ghosts in the night We'll offer up those demons The vicious will be kind Tonight the women cry out
2.
Cloaked head, heart, hand Darkness is here Arising from deep within Bleeding black now from my skin Confused and shy My feelings wide Not pretty when I cry Bleeding black now from these eyes Hardening heart Made soft so briefly With grieving, solidified Bleeding black now on the inside
3.
Of Decent 05:21
I have forgiven in a certain way Time healing wounds or so they say Probably more I’m just forgetting all the ways (And guilt and shame) I’m not alright, I’m not alright, I’m not alright, I'm not alright We grieve with empathy in death that all your hatred be relieved They took an innocence we didn’t know that we could keep We’re not alright, we’re not alright, we’re not alright, we’re not alright We crave the light, We crave the light
4.
Symmetry 03:58
Something changed today Shivers down my spine It’s cold out there, no sunshine I think I’ll stay in bed Listening to voices Inside my head That speak of this crisis You speak of symmetry My hands are tied This is bound to be a long and dark night A new day comes to crack the light Though I still can’t move No matter how hard I try
5.
Living on the bones now Eat ‘em all alive and they’re gonna cut your teeth out Diseased with pride and anger When sickness boils over Hate becomes the fever Lying on the ground Life eclipsed by desperate hope that can’t be found When hatred is the air you breathe The blood upon your hands stains eternally
6.
Demise 03:49
Knives, swords, and axes Sand, stone, ashes Gas, dope, poison Sea salt and lashes Crawl in your cave Sleep one more time The monsters within us could use our advice There are shimmers of light And the things that we hope for There is darkness and death In the depths of our souls war Visions and endless enchantment With our own demise Come a little bit closer and I’ll tell you mine Live to dream of death Live to dream of death We'll fight until there is nothing left Knives, swords, and axes Sand, stone, ashes Gas, dope, poison Sea salt and lashes Crawl in your cave Sleep one more time The monsters within us could use our advice
