Track Name: Hate Mail
NEVER GONNA BE THE SAME AGAIN
NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU MY HEART IN VAIN
I'M ALREADY OVER, FREE AS A WORD
I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD BE YOUR ENEMY
I ALWAYS READ THE HATE MAIL YOU SENT TO ME
I TASTE YOUR AROMA, LICKING THE PAPER

YOU PLAYED THE GAME I WONT APOLOGIZE
YOU FELT THE SAME BUT SAID I CROSSED THE LINE

SO I TEAR YOUR PICTURES DOWN
AND I CUT THE EYES OUT
AND I'LL MAKE YOU PAY
AND I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE
AND I KNOW WHERE YOU SLEEP
AND I'M COMING
SO GET READY FOR MY LOVE
LIKE DEATH FROM ABOVE
I'M GONNA MAKE IT COUNT
I'LL CUT YOU AND KILL YOU
AND HIDE YOU WHERE NO ONE WILL FIND YOU

I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE
I KNOW WHERE YOU SLEEP
I'M COMING

FREE AS A WORD
Track Name: The World is Changing
YEAH, WE KNOW THAT THINGS CAN CHANGE
BUT WE WEREN'T PREPARED FOR THIS
BUT THERE'S ONE THING WE CAN SAVE
WHEN OUR HAND BECOMES A FIST

BURNT ALL MY BRIDGES BEHIND ME
NO MORE CHOICES LEFT BEFORE ME
I KNOW NO ONE CAN PROTECT ME
WHEN YOUR DISEASES INFECT ME

TAKING CONTROL,
WE DON'T KNOW THE LIFE WE WASTE
IF WE DON'T APPRECIATE OUR DAYS
SO DON'T LOOK SO BETRAYED
WHEN YOUR BLOOD BECOMES A MIST

THE WORLD IS CHANGING NOW
BUT NOT FOR THE BETTER

3. INSIDE THIS HOUR

EVEN WHEN IT ALL FALLS DOWN ON IT'S OWN
OUT OF THE COMPLEX AND INTO THE ZONE
DAYS GO BY BUT HOURS PASS
NEVER LET YOUR SINS WEIGH DOWN ON YOUR MIND
NEVER LET THE SUNLIGHT INTO YOUR LIFE
FOCUS ON THIS HOURGLASS

I'VE PUSHED AWAY ALL TIME AND SPACE
OH, WHAT DAY IS IT
OH, WHAT YEAR IS IT
IT DOESN'T MATTER DOES IT

JUSTIFY A LIFE SPENT LIVING INSIDE
SPYING ON MY NEIGHBOURS THROUGH THE BLINDS
I KNOW THAT THEY'RE UP TO SOMETHING
STARING AT THE WALL THERE'S A KNOCK AT THE DOOR
BUT I CAN JUST IGNORE IT ALL
WHY CAN'T EVERYONE LEAVE ME ALONE

CAN'T STAND THE SIGHT OF MY OWN REFLECTION
I'M STILL REGRETTING MY GOOD INTENTIONS
ALL I KNOW AND ALL I AM IS INSIDE THIS HOUR
LONELINESS IS THE ONLY FLAVOUR
SOLITUDE I TASTE, I SAVOUR
ALL I KNOW AND ALL I AM IS INSIDE THIS HOUR

I HAD TO FIND AN ESCAPE
BEFORE I MADE A MISTAKE
GAVE YOU THE WORDS IN MY BRAIN
MURDER AGAIN AND AGAIN
MURDER, MURDER, AGAIN AND AGAIN
Track Name: Outside this Hour
UNTIL I CLOSE MY EYES FOR THE LAST TIME
I DON'T CARE IF I NEVER SEE THE SUN AGAIN

I'VE GOTTA WAIT FOR THE END OF TIME
LOCKED IN THIS PLACE, ALONE WITH MY MIND
I NEVER LIKED THE WORLD, IT NEVER LIKED ME BACK
I'VE SEVERED ALL MY TIES, MY WINDOWS PAINTED BLACK

UNTIL I CLOSE MY EYES FOR THE LAST TIME
OUTSIDE, RIGHT NOW
THERE'S A KNOCK AT THE DOOR
I DON'T CARE IF I NEVER SEE THE SUN AGAIN

CRIME IN MY FACE, NO ONE ELSE TO BLAME
ONLY TIME TO WASTE, EVERYTHING'S THE SAME
LOSING TRACK OF DAYS, JUST A HOLLOW SHELL
I VOWED TO STAY, CUT OFF FROM IT ALL

I CAN'T EVEN THINK
OUTSIDE THIS HOUR
FORGET EVERYTHING
OUTSIDE THIS HOUR

OUTSIDE, RIGHT NOW
THERE'S A KNOCK AT THE DOOR
Track Name: Modern Echo
ONLY IN THE MORNING
IS MY ATTENTION
DETAILED, FOCUSED AND DERANGED
IT SCARES ME SOMETIMES
THE WAY MY EYES SEE
THE WAY I SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

YOU LOOK LIKE A
PUMP ACTION SEX FIEND
BLOWN AWAY BY A
DOUBLE BARREL SIX-STRING, HEART TRIGGER

THE SMELL OF COFFINS FILLS THE AIR
THE SUBTLE VISIONS I OBTAIN
IT MAKES THINGS THAT MUCH MORE INTERESTING TO ME

HOLD ME IN THE EVENING
COZ THAT'S WHEN THE HALLUCINATIONS END
IT SCARES ME SOMETIMES
THE WAY MY EYES SEE
THE WAY I SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

I'LL KILL HER BEFORE I'M THROUGH
MISUSED AND ALL ABUSE

A MESS I'M SURE TO CLEAN
RED SHEETS WILL WASH UP WHITE
BEFORE YOU KNOW IT

YOU'VE BECOME MY
PUMP ACTION SEX FIEND
BLOWN AWAY BY A
DOUBLE BARREL SIX-STRING, HEART TRIGGER

SEX FIEND - HEART TRIGGER
PUMP ACTION SEX FIEND
Track Name: Pushed to the Side
(it all comes back to you)
IF YOU WANT TO WASTE AWAY YOUR LIFE
IT WILL WORK UNTIL YOU DIE
IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU
ALL THESE PEOPLE AREN'T SO SIMPLE
IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU

YEAH I'M FAR FROM HOME
DON'T THINK I AM ALONE
REST BACK ON YOUR THRONE
ENJOY IT WHILE YOU STILL CAN

PLACE BLAME WHERE YOU LIKE
IT WON'T WORK BUT YOU CAN TRY
IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU
ALL THESE PEOPLE AREN'T SO SIMPLE
IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU

WHEN YOU FALL FROM HOPE
DON'T TAKE THE OPEN ROAD
SPEND YOUR NIGHTS ALONE
ENJOY THEM WHILE YOU STILL CAN

THEY NEVER LEARN ANYTHING
THEY DON'T APPRECIATE ANYTHING
THEY JUST EVOLVE THEIR CORPORATE MODELS
AND ANYTHING THAT MATTERS IS PUSHED TO THE SIDE
Track Name: We Found a Way
WE FOUND A WAY
WE FOUND A WAY TO MAKE IT ALL OKAY
SLEEP IT AWAY, FORGET IT ALL EXISTS
AND ROLL OVER IN YOUR GRAVE

I PRETEND THAT EVERYBODY'S DEAD
AND CONCENTRATE ON NUMBERS INSIDE MY HEAD

RED MEDICINE PUTS YOU TO SLEEP
BLUE MEDICINE KILLS ALL YOUR DREAMS
BUT NEVERMIND THAT
COZ YOU DON'T NEED THEM ANYWAY

IT'S TIME TO PRAY
IT'S TIME TO PRAY TO YOUR WHORE GOD
SLEEP IT AWAY, FORGET IT ALL EXISTS
AND ROLL OVER IN YOUR GRAVE
Track Name: Hormones and Leather
AM I HOLDING ONTO SOMETHING
OR JUST HOLDING ONTO NOTHING
AM I NOTHING BUT A SCAR
ON A SCAB INFESTED PLANET
AND WHY ARE MY EMOTIONS
DICTATED BY THE WEATHER
WHY DOES THIS LIFE WE'RE LEADING
SMELL LIKE HORMONES AND LEATHER

YEAH I'M SCARED BUT I DON'T WANNA DIE
YEAH I CAN'T RUN AND HIDE
NO I DON'T WANNA DIE

I BELIEVE IN CONTINUITY
BUT INFINITY WILL GET THE BEST OF ME
WE ARE FOREVER
ARE WE FOREVER
FUCK YOU ALL I AM FOREVER

WHY SHOULD I CARE FOR PROBLEMS
IF I CAN'T SAY THEY'RE MINE
ARE MY FEELINGS SOMEHOW JUSTIFIED
AM I RUNNING OUT OF TIME
AM I BLINDED BY DISTORTIONS
CREATED BY THE DEVIL
WHY DOES THIS SKIN WE'RE PEELING
SMELL LIKE HORMONES AND LEATHER

YEAH, I'M SCARED BUT I DON'T WANNA DIE
I CAN'T RUN AND HIDE
I WANNA LIVE MY LIFE
Track Name: Burning House
IN THE NIGHT I HEAR A SCREAM
(IF I COULD WISH THE NIGHT AWAY)
AND I'M SHAKEN, TREMBLING
(IF I COULD WISH THE NIGHT AWAY)

I JUST WANNA SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY, YEAH
BUT I CAN ONLY HEAR YOU CALLING ME

DO YOU THINK I'M NOT WATCHING
WHEN YOU PULL A GRENADE WITH EVERY WORD I SAY
CAN'T YOU SEE THE IRONY
YOUR LIES IN MY CONFESSION

RUN, FOR YOUR LIFE
ESCAPE THIS BURNING HOUSE
WHILE THERE'S STILL TIME

I CAN'T HEAR YOU
COZ IT'S MORNING NOW
Track Name: I AM
I AM A 9MM GUN LODGED IN YOUR MOUTH
(death is only moments away)
I AM A MONSTER, A KILLER, USURPER OF LIFE
(life is nothing but a dream anyway)
I AM ENIGMA, I SIGNAL THE END OF IT ALL
(hear the call, it's for the end of days)
I AM DESTROYING, DEPLOYING MY WRATH ON THIS WORLD
(you are nothing but a lie)

TODAY THE WORLD YOU KNEW WILL END
WE'VE SEEN IT COMING
SINCE THE BEGINNING
WE'RE READY FOR IT
WE CAN'T RESIST IT
WE'VE BEEN THROUGH THE HELL OF PERPETUAL NIGHTS
WE STILL TAKE IT ALL IN STRIDE
WE'VE KNOWN BETTER DAYS
WE PRAY THAT THERE'S SOMETHING ON THE OTHER SIDE
NEVER WILL I HIDE

I AM A SHOTGUN PRESSED AGAINST YOUR TEMPLE TONIGHT
(death is always underneath your faith)
I AM A REAPER, THE KEEPER OF ETERNAL LIGHT
(life is nothing but darkness in the way)
I AM THE NEEDLE, I BLEED, I'LL BE THERE WHEN YOU FALL
(with a hole, eventual decay)
I AM MACHETE, BLOODLETTING AND READY TO FIGHT
(you are now prepared to die)

ALL WE NEED IS WHAT WE FIND ALONG THE WAY
BUT NOTHING MATTERS BECAUSE NOTHING'S HERE TO STAY
AND ALL WE NEED IS WHAT WE FIND ALONG THE WAY
WE FIND OURSELVES CONFINED TO HELL TODAY

RAPING THE VISION IN ME
TAKE OFF THE EDGE OF YOUR HEART
I AM A 9MM GUN LODGED IN YOUR MOUTH
I AM DESTROYING, DEPLOYING MY WRATH ON THE WORLD
Track Name: 2303.
AS MUCH AS LIFE HURTS
EVERYTHING WORKS OUT IN THE END
OPEN YOUR IGNORANT EYES
THERE ARE PEOPLE WORSE OFF THAN YOU
CONSTANTLY LIVING IN DISGUISE
POSITIVITY RETURNS OPPORTUNITY

NEGATIVITY CAUSES BRUTALITY
CONSTANTLY TAKING WITHOUT APPRECIATION
WAITING PATIENTLY FOR RETALIATION
FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS
SO TAKE WITH YOU WHAT YOU MAY
EVERYTHING WORKS OUT AT THE END OF THE DAY
DOESN'T IT

I FEEL MAYBE A SENSE OF STRUGGLE
TO FIND A BETTER DAY
BUT THAT'S KINDA HOW I WROTE IT

A SENSE OF PAIN THAT CAN BECOME BEAUTY
BEING PULLED TO RESIST AND SAY NO
IT WILL ALL WORK OUT SOMEHOW
SOMEHOW, IN THE END
LEAVING KISSES THAT SEVER ALL OUTSTANDING TIES
TO LEAVE ME WITH A BLOOD TRAIL, TO FOLLOW YOU HOME

DELVING DEEPER INTO THE DARKNESS OF HUMANITY
BLOOD, PAIN AND A HUMBLE MISERY
WE SEE THE WORLD, THE TRUTH PUSHED WITHIN
WE SEE YOU SITTING, WAITING FOR THE END TO BEGIN
GIVEN UP, WE'RE FADING AWAY
PRAYING FOR YOUR GOD TO TAKE YOU AWAY
IT'S NOT HAPPENING

REALITY IS HERE, DEAL WITH IT OR LOSE
RUN WITH OR CHOOSE DESTINY
YOUR PATH NOT THEIRS
BUT IN THE END WHO'S LEFT, YOU
THE ONLY ONE WHO CARES
WHEN EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING IS LEFT BEHIND
SIMPLE THINGS RUN THROUGH YOUR MIND

LOST IN ALL TRANSLATION, THE IMAGES ARE BLURRED
THE PICTURE PERFECT WORLD THAT I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BURN IS ON FIRE
Track Name: Her Inner Scent
GRAVITY..
DOESN'T FEEL AS GOOD WHEN YOUR HEART IS BROKEN
ALL YOU WANT TO DO IS FLY AWAY
THE COLD AND LONELY FEELING
THAT DRAGS YOU DOWN AND PULLS
YOUR SOUL RIGHT THROUGH THE GROUND
LEFT TO DIE, DECEITFULLY BUT GRACEFULLY
"I PROMISE I WON'T GO ANYWHERE"
IS WHAT SHE SAID TO ME BEFORE THE GLASS FELL
AND SHATTERED ON THE FLOOR

I'M DYING, I'M DYING
SO LET ME GO
MY DARLING, STOP CRYING
IT WILL SOON BE OVER

I ONLY EVER SEEM TO REMEMBER THE DAY
THAT CAME AND STOLE HER AWAY FROM ME
(her smiles, her eyes, her laughter)
HER SIMPLE FORM OF INNOCENCE
COMPLEX ENOUGH TO EVEN TRY AND READ
TO ME, MY BABY ALWAYS SEEMED TO
SET HER FACES AND FILL THE SPACE BETWEEN
THE COMFORT SEEN BY NO ONE
CONTINUES EVEN NOW, TO FOLLOW SOMETHING

A PERFECT PLACE IN FOREVER
A GIFT THAT BEGINS TO FEEL SO FREE
HER INNER SCENT IS ALL I NEED

..THE THINGS I MISS THE MOST
BRUISED FROM THE SHUTTER DOWN
RIBS AND HEART IMPLODE
THE CURSE THAT CALLS US TENSION
AND BREAKS UP ON THE FOLD

WE KNEW THAT IT WOULD COME TO THIS
I JUST DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD BE THIS SOON
Track Name: Last to Know
I WAS SORTA HOPING
THAT THIS WAS EVERLASTING
BUT I CAME HERE WITH SOMETHING
I LEFT HERE WITH NOTHING
YOU WERE ALWAYS DRIFTING
SEARCHING FOR THE BREAKING OF DAY
I WAS ONLY WONDERING
IF YOU MIGHT DRIFT BACK THIS WAY

NOW I'M ALL BENT OUT OF SHAPE
AND I'M JUST NOT COPING WITH THE CHANGE
IT'S LIKE TEN THOUSAND KICKS TO THE FACE
PLEASE TELL ME

WHY AM I ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW
SOMEONE TELL ME
WHY AM I LEFT HERE WHILE EVERYONE GOES
SOMEONE TELL ME
WHERE DID EVERYONE GO

YOU WERE ALWAYS PREACHING
THAT SEEING IS BELIEVING
BUT I JUST WASN'T LISTENING
SO I KEPT ON STARING
THROUGH A SCARLET OUTLET YOU BLED
UNTIL MY EYES TURNED BACK TO GREY
YOU BECAME A VICTIM INSTEAD
OUTSIDE PURE, INSIDE DECAY

NOW I CAN TASTE SOUR GRAPES
SO I'M HANDING YOU ALL OF THE BLAME
UNTIL YOUR DISTANCE BECOMES MY CLEAN SLATE
PLEASE TELL ME

WHERE DID EVERYONE GO
WHY AM I ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW

AM I ALWAYS THE LAST
