Fall Astray 04:07
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?

Share 03:52
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

The Gift 04:12
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

The Grotto 03:42
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

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
