Dark Horse 02:54
for all those born to serve and those that chose to hide (how many worker bees died within our hive) let their sadness be our blessing let their losses lead the way the dark horse will one day come to free the light from all of us one day the dark horse will come for all those born to die and those that lost the fight (how many fallen friends died within our sights) let their hard roads be our way out let their passion lead the way the dark horse will one day come to free the light from all of us one day the dark horse will come no matter the man or the machine beasts will become what they were meant to be in the name of lovers in the name of wars we'll show the demons for what they are dark horse ride towards the light dark horse ride onward towards to light onward

my barren plan to be a better man rots in abandoned fields these idle hands inherit spoiled lands as the hungry become the pigs we reap (and) we sow we mourn who we were love what we lost in the grave of...(youth) laying with lions to hide my grief from the beast that never sleeps our tired hearts tear us apart searching for the key we reap (and) we sow we mourn who we were love what we lost in the grave of...(youth) reap what we sow my barren plan to be a better man rots in abandoned fields these idle hands inherit spoiled lands as the hungry become the pigs we reap (and) we sow we mourn who we were love what we lost in the grave of...(youth)

Effigy 01:42
rotting legacies fading loyalties effigies for the beasts effigies distorted hearts worship gods currency that is so worthless to me the poor eat the poor just like we've done before cursed by the burden youth brings rotting legacies fading loyalties effigies for the beasts effigies distorted hearts worship gods currency that is so worthless to me the poor eat the poor just like we've done before cursed by the burden youth brings effigies for the beasts effigies you and me for you and me

saw you coming around my bend cutting teeth and breaking bread making moves and smearing friends your karma has been racking debts left your throne in foreclosed homes claimed that crown of decay built castle walls with blood and bone to shield your soul from wither and decay worms will feed saw you slither around their necks sinking teeth into their flesh spitting venom seeing red you will fall where you lay your head left your throne in foreclosed homes claimed that crown of decay built castle walls with blood and bone to shield your soul from wither and decay rats will feast the worms will find a way the rats will find a way

Wishing Well 02:49
the collapsing veins are empty the stars are less bright tonight the future is moving farther away from defeated eyes your words can't touch me while your past weighs down your life your heart can't love me while your past (still) haunts you inside the past still hunts you the past still follows you your words can't touch me while your past weighs down your life your heart can't love me while your past (still) haunts you inside you - all I had I gave to you you - all I had I gave to you (age is echoes in the well)

Damages 04:26
shut your doors their storm is coming of unlived dreams that were cast away hear the howls soaring in the wind don't let our end begin my hatred grows as their tears fall my hatred grows as their tears fall shield innocence from hungry tombs keep damages from taking you hear the howls soaring in the wind don't let our end begin my hatred grows as their tears fall my hatred grows as their tears fall i'll do anything that i can do to lock the window beasts are climbing through i'll do anything that i can do to lock the window beasts are climbing through my hatred grows as their tears fall my hatred grows as their tears fall (extinguish our own hells)

triumph of tragedy and all it claims from me as those years recede white lies are all i see missed steps and misgivings driven by frailty what you call family feels so dead to me nothing left to lose when i'm losing you triumph of tragedy and all it claims from me as those years recede white lies are all i see missed steps and misgivings driven by frailty what you call family feels so dead to me nothing left to lose when i'm losing you losing the battle and losing the war

Dead Beat 02:36
pick your poison as dead beats do leave a wake in the hearts that hurt you pick your poison as dead beats do blood pulsing through your wounds a thousand warnings are ringing true burning their homes writing in stone the name of demons inside of you you left your mark on this world you left your scar on this world you left your mark on this world you left your scar you left your mark you left your scar on this world pick your poison as dead beats do leave a wake in the hearts that hurt you blood pulsing through your wounds a thousand warnings are ringing true burning their homes writing in stone the name of demons in you you left your mark on this world you left your scar on this world you left your mark on this world wound them

Cutter 01:40
severed my roots of dead family trees finding the damage inside parting blood red seas on bended knee too much to ask when it's so hard to breathe no way out tearing my soul to finally see the real wreckage between (you and me) a cold grin for these damned at my door my haywire heart their product of war no way out cutting myself for clarity i just keep falling into darkness cutting myself for clarity just keep falling severed my roots of dead family trees finding the damage inside parting blood red seas on bended knee too much to ask when it's so hard to breathe no way out cutter cutting myself for clarity i just keep falling into darkness cutting myself for clarity just keep falling one way down no way out (i may get better but we won't ever get well)

Slave Driver 02:48
no longer feel you no longer fear you i've worked overtime in your cancer factories lived with those lies to make those loose ends meet i've taken all my chances and still I'm missing steps another losing battle for those left for dead no longer feel you no longer fear you i've fed their rabid feast yet still pick from my own bones i've ripped out my own heart trying to keep you whole i've lived like a true angel i've only learned to fall i've sold myself to death for nothing - at all no longer feel anyone no longer fear anything i've hung my sorrow on your promised apologies i've left the nest with broken and battered wings the blood in my eyes has taught me to defeat the beasts at the feet of saint obscurity no longer feel no longer fear (sold my dreams to feed the corpse)

Cruel Bloom 04:01
voracious children and wolves sharpen their teeth on our bones carrion feeds the wretched vacant eyes peer through the hole beggars and thieves bring down a common enemy while pawnshop kings and corner queens all hawk their souls for gold lifelong victims pound and claw at the ground searching for a way out of their skin writhe in the cruel bloom trying to find beauty in flesh torn from me trying so hard not to lose you in cobwebs and empty hearts lifelong victims pound and claw at the ground searching for a way out of their skin writhe in the cruel bloom witness the ghostlike shades of ourselves searching for any way out of our skin writhe in the cruel bloom
13.
down by your side i watch the dreary light it illuminates your sleeping skin i reach my cold arm across the bed you make no move you never do own these dire nights own their seething lies own my damage own my scars they paint a broke life’s shattered art and time won’t turn my wretched world (to stand in your shadow is to be home)
