Track Name: Fall Astray
Fall Astray

Sometimes I break
And sometimes I fall
Somehow I wait
To hear your call

Gone now
Am I ready?
Can we make it on our own?
Nothing left to make it pretty
Is it best to be alone?

Gone now
Am I ready?
What I need is something better
Promises I make alone

A voice in the night
A sound in my head
No one in sight
It’s time to repent

Where do you go when your eyes seem so far away?
Where is your soul when your heart seems to fall astray?
Track Name: Share
Share

I’ve been around this aching world
To every town I never found my place
I wish I could forget your face
I lost that right a hundred nights ago
Your stricken look will not let me go

It’s all in the eyes
My world came down
She said we were fine
I know that didn’t count
It’s all in the eyes
She gave up every care
To give me her life
There’s nothing left to share

I miss my life another time with you
Mistakes were made the blame was laid on my tomb
I ran away if I stayed I’d be through
I caught a bus without a plan in mind
On the road and all alone to hide

It’s all in the eyes
My world came down
She said we were fine
I know that didn’t count
It’s all in the eyes
She gave up every care
To give me her life
There’s nothing left to share

I’ve been around this aching world
To every town I never found my place
I wish I could forget your face
Track Name: The Gift
The Gift

Open your eyes
What do you see?
A lifetime building another man’s dream

Break from the pact, what do you know?
Slavery cost you more than your soul
Awake in the night you can take my hand
And I show you a way to break up this trend

You’ll shun the sun and forget the day
But when it’s said and done, it’s a small price to pay

Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free
Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free

Be my life my bond in death
Be my love accept my gift

See with eyes into other’s deceit
And you’ll understand what you used to be
Each little life churns another’s greed
So why shouldn’t we just take what we need

Stalk the night and you free their souls
You gotta taste life before you lose control

Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free
Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free

Be my life my bond in death
Be my love accept my gift

Open your eyes what do you see?
Another poor soul caught without their own dream
Their desperate eyes seek a way out
You could give them life or you could end it all now

Awake in the night they may take your hand
But if they lose their nerve at least they’ll be dead
Yes, when we met that’s just what I planned
But let’s forget about that and drain our new friend

Words never mean that much
It’s time to break free
Living shouldn’t be a crutch
It’s time to be free

The daytime has failed you
There’s nothing left to see
The nighttime has something new
A dream within a dream

Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free
Life’s just a bad routine
Beats you to your knees
Life’s just a bad routine
The night will set you free

Be my life my bond in death
Be my love accept my gift
Be my life my bond in death
Be my love accept my gift
Track Name: The Grotto
The Grotto

Step inside
Enjoy the ride
Mind the ghost
She’s a little morose

Frightful scares forget the world out there
We offer treats the trick is quite effete
Diamond rings and fairy wings
The Grotto calls come and wander our halls

Spider eggs in the darkest dregs
The deeper you wind you leave the glamour behind
The real world is a tarnished pearl
They cast us down into this undead town

Welcome to your tomb
Right here on the avenue
Soon you too will rise
See that all I said was true

Desperate fiends and monsters need to eat
You’ll start to see this is what we need
The glamour here is to allay your fear
Invite you in to let the meal begin

Welcome to your tomb
Right here on the avenue
Soon you too will rise
See that all I said was true

Welcome to your tomb
Right here on the avenue
Soon you too will rise
See that all I said was true

In My Mind

Walking through this forest road
The sky is black and the water froze
When I look back, she’s still there
A spirit from another nightmare

Beasts prowl the living night
They’re the type that will kill on sight
This is what I can see when I let myself
Fall asleep because

I live inside my mind
Amongst my own kind
A ghostly type of peace
Eclipsed by monstrous teeth
Devour up my life
There’s nothing left inside
And now that I believe
I’ll never find relief

Somewhere out beyond the trees
There’s a sense of sanity
A place where people live and dwell
They’ll never know my home made hell

What do these phantoms need?
They hover and they claw at me
I’d give up if it would change
But there’s no escape from my imagery because

I live inside my mind
Amongst my own kind
A ghostly type of peace
Eclipsed by monstrous teeth
Devour up my life
There’s nothing left inside
And now that I believe
I’ll never find relief
