Track Name: Death's Dance
I couldn't bear to watch you go down without a fight
everything I did I failed, try hard as I might
hollow screams echoing from the corners of the earth
as the rivers flowing blood; promising rebirth

I saw you bleeding in a dream
woke up, cold sweat, silent scream
your body's crumpled tortured pain
your blood’s on my hands crimson stained

You couldn't find a lover so you took a chance with death
he vowed to take away your pain with his morbid icy breath
you took his deal and soon you were nestled in your grave
there’s one more scar on my soul for the life I couldn't save

I saw you bleeding in a dream
woke up cold sweat silent scream
your body’s crumpled tortured pain
your blood’s on my hands crimson stained

Fade away the memories of a former love long gone
agonize over what won’t change; makes cold days draw on
in this empty cave called home, for death there are no friends
'cuz when you kill all those you love you have to reap the ends

I saw you bleeding in a dream
woke up cold sweat silent scream
your body’s crumpled tortured pain
your blood’s on my hands crimson stained
I saw you bleeding in a dream
woke up cold sweat silent scream
your body’s crumpled tortured pain
your blood’s on my hands crimson stained
Track Name: That Handsome Dreamer
Simple child, lips painted with lies
Burning in a woman’s disguise
Simple child knows no surprise
Catch the shapes behind your eyes

The music rocked her, cradled her soul
A soft stirring, a riptide’s pull
Words washed over in a silky haze
With smoke and drink begin to blaze

He cups the mic like flirtation
Collected out from damnation
She struts in heels, steps like a whip
Poison dripping from her fingertips
Weaving stories meant to impress
He sees through them all and one (he says)
“Come, we’ll talk until day breaks
and hearts slide into the sun.”

Simple child, lips painted with lies
Burning in a woman's disguise...
Track Name: In Harm's Way
When a brother falls you get him back on his feet
You don't fuck around, you don't skip a beat
If you stand at his door indecisively
It could take five minutes when he only needs three

It's hard to lose a classmate and it's hard to lose a friend
But when you lose a brother the pain it never ends
The sorrow flows like blood through the veins of all he's touched
It's time to raise our glasses, God you're missed so much
It's hard to lose a classmate and it's hard to lose a friend
But when you lose a brother the pain it never ends

If you just opened the door you could spare someone’s soul
You could give the wounded opportunity to grow old
But if you allow cowardice to dig itself in
You will flee the scene and Lucifer will win

It's hard to lose a classmate and it's hard to lose a friend
But when you lose a brother the pain it never ends
The sorrow flows like blood through the veins of all he's touched
It's time to raise our glasses, God you're missed so much

Your brothers surround you in this grief-stricken church
Even though we try to hide it, inside we all hurt
You will be missed by your family and friends
Know your brothers stand by you now until the end
Track Name: Boxes and Meds
Slipping slowly through the looking glass into a cell
Dark and shuttered windows into a broken hell
Passing shadows, caricatures marked by light unseen
Making better ghosts than they ever were human beings

Every breath tastes so bittersweet
Just one more tiny torment in the back of my mind
Every failure left us incomplete
Hiding it somewhere we choose not to find

Box me up
Lock me in
Sew me shut
To rot within

Hermetic dungeons, crafted of our own design
Drifting numbly—without hope, we crawl inside
Stroke by stroke; paint the walls with glutted pain
Layer upon layer; shrink the rooms to go insane

We perfected
Self destruction

Knot the noose
Push it in
Choke it down
Scarred within
This sin…begins to burn
My lungs, filling up
When will we ever learn?

Pills and blades, prices paid
Poison cocktails make you sway
Hold it down or force it up
Iron doors start slamming shut
Throw up walls, meant to hide
All they do is trap inside
Words so cruel, or worse absent
Becoming less than emptiness
