01 ANALOG

(2:55)

Through the coolest haze of this dreamlike maze
It has begun
And all I want is you near
With these wounds I've bled a perfect tone of red
In isolation
Through the swollen eyes of the dying

In my waking dreams we're all dying
To become what we swore we never would
Now I watch and mourn in bloom

You take the way you know
And I'll take the road unknown
And meet you there
At the end of time
We are frequency, we are tragedy
We are the love
We need to keep us here, we are the dying

We are the hungry ones, we are the waiting
Forever faithful
And when I see you on the other side
I will not be the same as I was when I was yours

Now all I want is you near
We are the dying
We are the lonely ones, we are the hungry
Forever waiting
And when I see you on the other side
I will not be the same as I was when I was yours

We are the dying
We are the hungry
And when I see you
I will not be the same as I was when I was yours

02 BLUEPRINT OF THE FALL

(3:05)

Imagine a place where freedom's just a word on the wall
Surrounded by the wreckage of towers that could never fall
The company will avenge

Imagine the lies like bombs that turn to the shock and the awe
For justice in time and a land for justice never was
One thief to rule them all

Along the Potomac and west towards the sea
Through the ghettos, past the monuments, we all built to house the weak

It's the blueprint of the fall of our place in history
The end to what we all believed would be the hope to save this place

And I walk among the flagstones through the graves
An apocalypse is blooming in the sage

Dead presidents lined coffin text in biblical unrest
The blind pride, home genocide, the secret wars we all missed

It's the blueprint of the fall of the entire human race
The end to what we all believed would be the hope to save this place

And I walk among the flagstones through the graves

03 KATATONIA

(2:46)

Impoverished and bleeding hope here something fast receding
Dead light holocaust, I check this body in tonight

Cross my heart and hope to die
To never leave this place alive
I'm burning right in front of you
I break myself against you, I lay still

Your penetrating glances dead stop all my vain advances
To another place where I can truly be myself
Respirators kicked on high
Life support, it keeps me alive
To forgive all I will never do
One last kiss is all I need from you

Ride, salvation going under
They say, they say I won't survive you
I wish I never knew you
Your name is Katatonia

You ride, salvation going under
They say, they say I won't survive you
Your name, your name is sanctuary
I call you Katatonia

04 HER NAME IN BLOOD

(3:20)

Mother Mary bury me in a place they'll never find
I kill only what I love and what I loved was never mine
Suffocate you out of me, you're the darkest of my sins
You're burning through my head, don't know where I begin and where you end

Your breathless violence open veins in silence and devotion
Sacred and divine
In this love that makes me, it's the hurt that moves me to betray you
Every time you pull me near

Give it away, give it away ride this bitch to hell
Then blow a kiss, when you only think of me
Hold my hand and fuck away this blankness of expression
And all sorrows in between

Her name in blood and her eyes on me
Her deepest secret lies in front of me
A whisper now is all that remains of me

You're the center of my unholy shrine
Scar tissue in time, you're all mine
You're the last hint of self control
My last chance just walked out the door

Drown out your artery
Straight through a love that would never be

Her name in blood and her eyes on me
Her deepest secret lies in front of me
A whisper now is all that remains of me

This sacrament is our punishment
I am the worst part of you
You are the only thing left to burn

05 ANGELDUST

(3:39)

Broken angel, you sway helpless through the desert wind
As your enemies, they come to pick your bones
You're an anomaly so graced to be a lie you told in a leisurely
Passing fascination with obituary eyes

So long to go before these alabaster hands ever let go
Meticulous in ritual you made a science of your pain
Where all your bleeding hearts and hungry minds divide along the way
So in love with all you could not be
Forever doomed to wander aimlessly
Never really knowing all the pain you're gonna find

So long to go before these alabaster hands ever let go
Swaying in the California haze
In angel dust we all do blow away

We bleed this love alive
Straight faced to suicide
When do all these words mean anything
What good will come of you and me
Just growing old and none the wiser
Fall apart and then your time to fall again
Get up again and on and on and on and on

Wasted breath in a blackened lung and shortness of belief
Exercise your demons when you dream
The secrets that you keep inside are all you've ever known
Pay to ride and fuck to die, reinvent another you

But that never stops that march right off the cliff in single file
These angel wings will never take the weight of the fall
A question lost in time, a tasteless joke, a secret smile
To fall apart, get up again and on again and on again

We bleed this love alive
Straight faced to suicide
When do all these words mean anything
What good will come of you and me
Just growing old and none the wiser
Fall apart and then your time to fall again
Get up again and on and on and on and on

06 LUCIFERMOTORCADE

(2:43)

As above then so below we celebrate the wounds that make us whole and
Connect the dots, divide the truth, and profit from the beasts' complexity
New terror, new stage, new end new race new face, economy
Program the president, the model of the manufactured proof

How did we get to be so hated
Gather round the tube and wonder why
Economies, spirituality together are void of harmony
Create a God then brush the skin with the oil of a bleeding tanker ship
Life's just a matter of who is willing to deliver the blow that'll strike you down

Chrysanthemums and steely atom bombs arise
And shape the landscape of my heart and mind
Destruction to this hurting world

How do you want to be judged in the face of your complacency

I already know my time's running out
So burn the flag of every nation state
Flood the palaces with the people's hate
All will be one

How do you want to be judged in the face of your complacency

07 VAMPIRES

(2:46)

Some say in the darkest places, love can grow
In this solitary romance, we'll never know
Well this coffin break I'm staging to the road that leads me back to you
Will be the miracle I gave up everything to only be with you

Can't seem to shake the loneliest curse of all
Eternity with just a memory

I've seen your picture a million times
Three sixes and a melody of
Singing vice and avarice in the chains
You chose to be your dress for
My funeral for two, a carnival in blue

I can't seem to shake the loneliest curse of all
Eternity spent chasing what I shun
All is ghost in memory
And poison is the sun
In the sun

Na na na, they bury us in sand
Na na na, together hand in hand

I can't seem to shake the loneliest curse of all
Eternity spent chasing what I was
All is ghost in memory and poison is the sun
In the sun

Na na na, they bury us in sand
Na na na, together hand in hand

08 NO VOICE OF MINE

(2:28)

The wind is shifting, something's different in the air
I see it in the form of choices everywhere
And I've been asleep a lifetime just to wake in time to find
The voice that has been speaking for me is no voice of mine

And now you've just been spoken for
And now you've just been sold

My eyes fixated on the life I've left behind
A puppet dreams of being human every time
That a string gets pulled before you know you're dancing to the lie
Of someone else's vision of the perfect wasted life

It's in the way we never seem to get it right
A systematic form of bowing down and under
And all we know is what we are without the faith in who we are
So desperate

Something here has got to give
And my instincts fill me with this dread
That I've become what I'm trying to kill
That my appetite is my free will

There is no right
There is no wrong
There is only that is forever gone

It's in the way we never seem to get it right
A systematic form of bowing down and under
And all we know is what we are without the faith in who we are
So desperate

And now you've just been spoken for
And now you've just been sold
And now you've just been spoken for

09 ANNA LEE

(3:12)

You hold this place inside my head
You're a symphony of hurt
The daylight passes through me to another crippled voice
Been here once before and I know exactly where it ends
Right back where we started, pain dead flowers on the bed

Anna lee don't you cry for me
You're not as strong as you wanna be
In the dark, we all see what we know
It's the space that scares us so

You lead me through your garden where only dead things dare to grow
You convince me I deserve the thorns you've tried so hard to show
Normalness escapes me to the point of no return
The memories around this place keep us from moving on

Anna Lee don't you cry for me
You're not as strong as you wanna be
In the dark, we all see what we know
It's the space that scares us so

The endless balmy air we breathe
This city's starting to get to me tonight
I'll take the metro anywhere that isn't here
I find no comfort in the pain I always cause

Tonight
She might wait around for me
To come along with a promise and a dream

Anna Lee don't you cry for me
You're not as strong as you wanna be
In the dark, we all see what we know
It's the space that scares us so

Anna Lee don't you cry for me
You're not as strong as you wanna be
Cause I know what I've been doing to you
You let me let you know
I know what you've been waiting for
To let me let you go

10 NEVER SPEAK AGAIN

(4:01)

This is the altar of my downfall
A symbol of this glorious demise
Well I'm in flames and getting deeper
All contact lost, it's no surprise
I'm sitting here alone
The silence heavier than me tonight

A lost cause found and sold again
A broken stride reborn again
Here among these glided pages now
Is sanctuaries one last stand
To never have to speak again
To never say your name again
To never tell another lie
To live in the honesty of the eye

Create your own defense and keep a secret tight

Tonight there will be no sound
In golden silence we'll be found
To never have to say goodbye
When it hurts too much to just get by
Honesty will be a glance away

We're not far
Don't say anything

When all the words of the poet's lie meaningless
When all the trivial delusions all lose their place
In the arms of those who wonder why
Nothing really matters

Tonight all be the sound
In silence we'll be found
A little less exaggerated
And never say goodbye
To never tell a lie
To never come across so jaded

To never curse your name again
To never take the blame again
To never get the last word every time
We've got nothing good to say

11 SKELETONDANCE

(2:43)

This day we dance away through our obsession
To cut away the pain with surgical precision
A static flash to burn your mind's eye0
Emotionless in doubt now
You don't ever have to feel anything, anymore
Anything, anymore

In the skeleton dance
For another chance

Another day alone with our perversions
To eat away ourselves is our religion
If you get me high I'll be right where you are
Just like everybody els, aching for a better view

You and I will scream for more
We can make this so much more
Kill the body and the head will thrive along
Kill the body and the head will lead you on

All the coward souls
In this place we live
Reside me to wonder
Is this really where we all belong
Belong

Skeletons dream of touch this close
Curiosity pushes the nail deeper
Weak attempts dream of touch this close
Curiosity pushes the nail deeper

Here and now we'll scream for more
We can make this so much more
Kill the body and the head will thrive along
Kill the body and the head will lead you on

In the skeleton dance

12 SCARLET

(3:19)

Scarlet, you got everything I want
You're the pistol, my pollution, and my secret alibi
We got no music but we can dance around this death
Cause nothing moves you like extinction
And you know I'm always game

So let's forget the small talk
On this eve of destruction baby
Hollowed be our name
This hell is where we hide
Drown with a lost soul and maybe
The eerie glare of neon will last all night

We drone on, we persist without an end
We destroy all life around us
We are the beauty from within
And I been tortured by my place in all of this
But you assure of me my purpose
What we are we've always been

So let's embrace the downfall
On this eve of destruction baby
Hollowed from within
We got nowhere to hide
Damned with no secrets and maybe
The eerie glare of heaven will shine all night

And now I watch your shaking hands embrace the window
As you stare into the light
We both know there's no escaping what we are
But we still persist and fight

On this eve of destruction baby
Hollowed by our name
We are the end of days
Drown with a lost soul and maybe
The eerie glare of heaven will go on forever
Forever

13 SWAN DIVE

(3:30)

Well it's hard to find the words to say
What no one would say to you when you were around
The loneliest caged bird sings the saddest song
And you were never one to keep us guessing long

If you ask me what went wrong
I'll tell you nobody is doing fine
We're all fucked up and doing time
The gates of Eden elude people like ourselves

I think about you every now and then
More now than I ever did when you were down
All reservations pass when chances slip away
All songs are better from confusion

Now I sit and I wonder how
Every day gets a little shorter
And I always feel I'm losing out somehow
Don't wanna let another day go by
Without creation

Now if you ask me what went wrong
When you're falling you're the only one
That doesn't see the distance
Sacrifice yourself to save yourself

Now we don't always walk the line
And broadcast how we hurt sometimes
And still at times it seems nobody wants to know

Give me some time I might remember
Everything you ever did or so said to me

If you ask me what went wrong
I'll tell you nobody is doing fine
We're all fucked up and doing time
The gates of Eden elude people like you and I

I think about you every now and then
More now than I ever did when you were down
All reservations pass when chances slip away
All songs are better from confusion
Confusion

14 THE MISANTHROPIC PRINCIPLE

(4:06)

Look at me and say to me
Without guilt or compromise
That you care about anything
That doesn't jump right in front of your eyes

We got a problem, you got a problem
The mesmerizing truth
We all want the life no one is supposed to really own

Tell me what is worth dying for
I ask with the assumption I'll get no reply

Breathe in, breathe out
Sometimes I get lost within a stare
I look around and I ask myself
Why the fuck should I even care

This affliction, repetition
It's all been done before
While I'm still here just killing time
As the world goes along for more

Tell me what is worth dying for
Would you give up everything
To make one lasting point
We all believe we have the right
To make believe we know what's right
But how much does it take
To make your stand and be heard

I am the reason
You are the reason
To abandon everything we have become

And my eyes are wide open
And my heart is wide open
Is your mind wide open to see
