Track Name: The Wakeup Call
I still believe in the beauty of this world
Nothing it can do will change my mind
When I see crowds blank faced surround me
I pray a wakeup call soon arrive
For these things effect us all
Paying option to them is not optional
Yeah these things effect us all
Better speak up now than what your back's against the wall

We'll all unite for now
We really have no choice
No time for apathy
It's the only way we're granted a voice

I don't blame you for wanting to give in
While it seems the likes of us we never win
Through the fog of ancient mystery
Today yesterday's losers will rewrite history
Yeah these things effect us all
But you're right when you say "They're all the same
These things do not effect them at all
If they won't share the burden then why should we share the blame?"

We'll all unite for now
We really have no choice
No time for apathy
It's the only way we're granted a voice
Track Name: Speak In My Voice
I'll let her speak in my voice
I drew the picture back to front
I don't see these things so well
I'll let her speak in my voice
I'll let her see through my eyes
I'll let her taste through my mouth
We don't understand? Oh well
"I don't know the new colours names"
It's not she doesn't want to explain
It's just hard to write it down, to express it in words
I'll let the girl speak in my voice
I don't know what she'll say
I don't know if she'll stay
She may even stay silent yet
I'll let the girl use my voice
To tell us what she is
A third person character sketch
Someone else drew back to front
Her voice is stuck in my throat
Track Name: I'll Always Care
You don't have to touch it to know it's there
And boy you haven't changed much
Besides your hair
Let's enjoy the moment, ain't this fun
This is a reunion, the night's still young
Yeah this is our reunion, sing along
Just for a moment, pretend it's fun
This night's young....
I saw you in the distance
We should catch up
"But I don't have the time, Dan"
I made that up
You didn't really say that
But you would've done if I'd actually approached you
I was too scared
But you don't have to touch it to know it's there
And I don't have to see you, to know you care
I'll always care
Track Name: Never Enough
So get it through your head that I'm not your saviour
And I never will be
I can't help you feel, I can't catch you when you fall
You know it kills me
But there's a limit to the times I can hear you whine
Before I go
When you find I'm not there
I no longer care
Don't say I never told you so

Never enough

Between the jump and the landing
We fell out of time
Between the start and the ending
Without reason or rhyme
Can you take me back to when I was beautiful
Take me back to then
I was on your mind, now I'm never enough

Never enough

Your lips are tight shut but your eyes are snitches
Something about you beguiles and bewitches
I'm frozen to the touch, but you touch too much
And now I'm never, I'm never enough
If all I am is a toy to you
Remember if you break it you must take it home with you
And I've got nothing left to lose
Before making accusations make sure they're true

It's never enough
Track Name: After The Quiet Parts 1 and 2
All the mighty will look upon our work
And they'll despair
I'll indulge myself then I'll be crying too
As he's not there
And were the Gods jealous of his face
Of his smile, style, natural charm and grace
When last we met by the frozen river
Was it the cold or beauty made me shiver?

After the quiet comes a storm
After the quiet comes a storm
Closer to the marbled swarm
After the quiet comes a storm

You and I my love in many ways
We're very much the same
In ways that friends don't say
So loved and lost or fucked and forgotten
You're an imprint on my DNA
Those artisan hands will send me to hell
Un petit mort, and more and more
No I don't smoke but if you hold it to my lips
Then I could learn
My fingers burn

After the quiet comes a storm
After the quiet comes a storm
Closer to the marbled swarm
After the quiet comes a storm

Track Name: Rune Cloud
The sad moon is punctured
And I watch you dance
To spectral chimes
Stuck in honey
Honey stuck
Honey stuck
Open the lunar wound
Honey stuck

This great grey eyeless world sighs
Blood red and steeple dark
The rune cloud shows your name
Meandering into mine
This great grey eyeless world sighs
Blood red and steeple dark
The rune cloud shows your names
Closely intertwined

You fold your hands and the world disappears.
Track Name: Disconnect
No means no and sometimes so does yes
Have you got any sins you're willing to confess
Nothing more than matters of the flesh
My motives - you can probably guess
Silver's sexy, gold corrodes
Power corrupts and lust eats the soul
Nothing more than matters of the flesh
Expect nothing less

I disconnect from you
And it all makes sense
I disconnect from you
And our thought condense

Now I'm fantasising, memorising someone we both loved
Words fall in error we are badly dubbed
Fantasising, realising, I've been unfairly snubbed
We are baldy dubbed
It started out as a smirk
It ends as a grin
It's harder and harder for me to find
A truly original sin

I disconnect from you
And it all makes sense
I disconnect from you
And our thought condense
Track Name: One Skin Too Few
No soul just pure technique
The written word it's meaning plain oblique
Just makes so little to me
Sex is violence violence sex
The ideals of the dispossessd
Lithium no fun but it serves the purpose
Of keeping you too numb to care what depths you plumb
Help me I'm falling my mind is calling
I think my mind is calling out to me
But I'm here lost at sea

All surface, no real feeling
Look what they've done to you
Comatose contemplate the ceiling
Born with one skin too few
All surface and no real feeling
Break your will, call it healing

Girls like me are sometimes boys
Genre and gender are just our toys
Sexuality is making me sick
Put the blade in my hand, cut myself to the quick
Boys like me are sometimes girls
Don't forget this our world
Girls like me are sometimes boys
Don't forget - there is no choice

All surface, no real feeling
Look what they've done to you
Comatose contemplate the ceiling
Born with one skin too few
All surface and no real feeling
Break your will, call it healing

All surface, no real feeling
Look what they've done to us
Medicate, call it healing
The natural urge combusts
Track Name: Our Circuitry
The temperature's rising
Defences are falling
Like a siren your beauty is calling me
Leading me onward to die on your rocks
I have no choice but to keep my door locked (unlocked)
Temperature's rising
Defences decrease
Your call like a siren will it never cease
Leading me onward toward certain doom
I have no choice but to stay in this room

Choking on the dry ice
Everyone's got their price
There's a vacant look in your eyes
I've been dreaming of
Unhealthy fixation
Half heard conversation
Add to my vexation, what is going on
Please tell me
You think you've got it all
Do you know what comes before a fall

(I'm not the one you love, tell me)
Does your skin ever itch and you want to peel it off
Does your skin ever itch and you want to peel it off
Feel the circuitry between you and me

Choking on the dry ice
Everyone's got their price
Can you tell me yours so I know where I stand
Strobe lit degradation
Half heard conversation
Add to my vexation
You leave with a woman.....
Track Name: The Rain
Say goodbye, goodbye to the horizon
Say goodbye, say goodbye to the sea
Say goodbye, wipe the tears from your eyes
And then say goodbye, goodbye to me
Say goodbye, say goodbye to the ocean
A fond farewell for the shifting sand
Say goodbye to the outdated notion
Any of this is still in our hands

There'll be a flood, and no one'll survive
It'll rain all night
Can you see, can you see
Can you see it coming down from the sky
It'll rain all night

When the dying sun paints our sickly faces red
And all turns to ash here below
When the grinding pulse of industry finally stops dead
After the fire will come the deepest snow

There'll be a flood, and no one'll survive
It'll rain all night
Can you see, can you see
Can you see it coming down from the sky
It'll rain all night
Track Name: Final Lullaby
May you sleep and never dream
Never dream, forever sleep
May your night be endless
I hope you find some peace
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you in the light
I'll see you in the milky way
See you in velvet night

When I have to go
I swear I'll let you know
When I have to go
You'll be the second to know
When it is my time, it comes no warning one day
Ease your mind

May you sleep and never dream
Nightmares a thing of the past
The band is playing your closing theme
Soon you'll be free at last
You'll hear me in the milky way
You'll hear me in the thunder
Leave me now forget my fate
You'll see me in your slumber

When I have to go
I swear I'll let you know
When I have to go
You'll be the second to know
When it is my time, nature can be unkind
Ease your mind
Track Name: Tell Me What To Swallow
I lost my heart on the burning sand
Watched all my heroes becoming brands
Watched all my heroes becoming bland
Becoming their own cover bands
I feel so hollow, tell me what to swallow

Ecstasy smile turns rictus grin
I ache too much to let you in
I yearn to peel off this stupid skin
Really let the fun begin
I feel so hollow, tell me what to swallow

I need a leader, someone to follow
