Track Name: Into the Shadows
Sliding uncontrollably
Ever more out of touch
These gentle declines
Seem to hurt so much
I'd rather stay in the shadow
Than risk a moment in the light
I've spent a lifetime feeling wrong
It feels strange now being right

Under the surface
Is where I belong
This armoured facia
doesn't make me strong
If I say nothing it's not by choice
Delicate thoughts are strange to me
I'll hide behind the background noise
Can't let these demons free

Arcadia is out of reach
Tranquil thoughts are gone
Heaven is dead for me
I'm bound to soil and bone
You can never be my saviour
Without being broken first
Scarred and disenchanted
Can't quench this endless thirst

Tell me it's too late
Tell me it's too late
Tell me tomorrow
Track Name: Cinderella
Cinderella moment's fade out
Back to normality
This castle made of marble
Falls apart into the sea
(The) glass slipper breaks to pieces
It rips into your skin
No kiss can ever free you
From the solitude within

So don't wait until midnight
Don't hold your breath until its passed
Don't wait until midnight
Cinderella moments never last

Once upon a time no more
(No) needles prick your skin
40 days of sleepless nights
Your nightmares creeping in
This charming man has come to call
And sweep you off your feet
(You're) a trophy for a hopeless cause
Your heart will never beat

So don't wait until midnight
Don't hold your breath until its passed
Don't wait until midnight
Cinderella moments never last

A fairytale of broken lies
You'll dream your life away
burn until there's darkness left
And there's nothing left to say
Sit and watch the ripples flow
On to your endless sleep
Whichever way the dust will blow
This story's yours to keep

So don't wait until midnight
Don't hold your breath until its passed
Don't wait until midnight
Cinderella moments never last
Track Name: Setting Sun and Sinking Sand
Trying to find the words I need to say,
I almost catch them but they fade away,
Leaving me stumbling around uneasily,
Wearing my heart upon my sleeve for all to see

Caught in the moment,
Caught in the rain,
Caught in the headlights of this oncoming train,
Caught up in rumours
Caught by the hand
Caught in between the setting sun and the sinking sand,

So let me tell you how my life has gone,
Regaling you how it's all went wrong,
I wish I could show you how id treat you so damn good,
But all I can hear inside is how I never could,

Caught in the moment,
Caught in the rain,
Caught in the headlights of this oncoming train,
Caught up in rumours
Caught by the hand
Caught in between the setting sun and the sinking sand
Track Name: Beautiful Imperfection
I used to sleep so well
Dreams so clear and bright
Now I can't make out
The darkness from the light
Twisting moments bend
Turn my reality
Overturn and rend
Tear them away from me

Take your hands away
I was never yours to touch
With the lies you say
I'll no longer be your crutch
You're pumping through my veins
Drugs I no longer need
My heart just can't contain
A loss I must concede

So take your broken smile
And walk away from me
A beautiful imperfection
In a world of symmetry
Track Name: Ghosts
Your ghosts are wrapped around me,
Like a winter coat,
to keep the cold at bay.
Until time stands still again
And the rivers stop
their journey to the sea

Your ghosts sit still and stare at me
An expectant crowd
Waiting for the joke
The darkness grabs my gaze
Deep and desolate
Like windows in an empty room

These ghosts are walking through me
Like an open door
They whisper secretly
Taciturn and cold
The demon comes for me
A debt that can't be sold
Track Name: Get out of Here
We are the freaks, You and I
Twisted up, dead inside
Touched the void and then the sky
Can't believe I am this high
Crashing downwards with each sigh
No one heard me as a I cry
Out, get out of here
Walk away and don't turn around
It's time to disappear
To fall away into the sound


Take the time, to think about
All those memories filled with doubt
The voices always scream and shout
Only you can shut them out
They spin you faster until you collide
Tear you open from inside
Go on, get out of here
Walk away and don't turn around
It's time to disappear
To fall away into the sound

I can feel the fire burn
Each time I breath you in
The thought takes over me
I'm trying to begin
If life's a journey then
I need a place to start
It all seemed easier
Before you took my heart

So I'll get out of here
Walk away and won't turn around
It's time to disappear
To fall away into the sound
Track Name: Occasional Bruises
I'm trying to hold my breath,
Hold it inside until nothings left,
Where I feel my thoughts subside,
Locked forever deep inside

Sometimes I feel I'm stretched so thin
Remembered only for my sin
So seldom are we seen
Feeling angry and obscene

What are you waiting for,
You cant expect me to say anymore,
Im not going to play the part,
The missing piece to mend your heart

(Bridge)

Countless days merge into one
From darkened sky to burning sun
Our paths meander 'til they meet
We're just broken lights, dead on our feet.

What are you waiting for,
You cant expect me to say anymore,
Im not going to play the part,
The missing piece to mend your heart

Take me home
Track Name: Even the Voices in my Head Hate Me
Heavy eyelids, close my eyes
Listening to voices deep inside
Tearing at my flesh and bone
Sirens want me all alone
Calling from the darkest space
Drawing me to this lonely place
Fingernails tear at my skin
I've already let the demons in

So speak to me
Call my name till my ears ring
When even the voices in my head
Hate me and everything

Subtle changes go unseen
Outside appearing so serene
Black's the heart that beats inside
For sins left dormant and untried
Pull me under one last time
Feel the water so sublime
Colds the skin and darkness call
Its always farthest when you fall

So speak to me
Call my name till my ears ring
When even the voices in my head
Hate me and everything
Track Name: The Last Time
It's the last im going to depend on you

Time takes me away
Forward to another day
Where I can look inside
Because It's better to fight than hide

It's the last im going to depend on you

I only see in grey
Nothing lighting up the way
(Still) It's better than it was before
Can't hide behind me anymore

It's the last im going to depend on you

Ooh this is the last time

It's the last im going to depend on you
Track Name: Hurricanes
As I lay here, like the dead
Watching clouds pass overhead
Feeling time grab at my skin
What's left of life starts sinking in

I feel the wind play on my face
Dancing warmly, soft embrace
As my Life plays like a show
Fascinated, but I know..

Deep regrets and tidal waves
Arrive to wash my pain away
Rushing wildly through my veins
Twists and turns like hurricanes

I feel the devil hold my hand,
He pulls me in this sinking sand,
No god or demons come to see,
Just darkness washing over me

Deep regrets and tidal waves
Arrive to wash my pain away
Rushing wildly through my veins
Twists and turns like hurricanes

Carry me homewards, carry me on
You'll see no sunlight, until the dawn
