TORTUROUS
We are burning all the nightmares,
We are rising with the sun,
Now we all stand and face tomorrow,
For too long we've stood alone.
We are coming through the windows,
We are kicking down the doors,
Now we'll no more embrace your darkness,
Your superstition's yours alone.

So torturous,
The blade cuts deep, your tongue still bleeds,
Torturous, Remaining where you hang your prayer.

We are laughing in reflection,
We are setting fire to fear,
Now we'll put our faith in no one,
We don't your second chance.

We are giving rhyme not reason,
We don't need to settle scores,
Now you can take or leave tomorrow,
Your superstition leaves you cold. Leaves you cold.

So torturous,
The blade cuts deep, your tongue still bleeds,
Torturous, Remaining where you hang your prayer.


ASCENSION *
Overdose on darkness in the corridors of fire,
There's a face in the mirror, Of unchained desire.
She's in her house, standing by the door,
You can't go in, you're not welcome anymore.

Standing on the rooftops, soaking by the rain,
Dreaming of the long deceased, never coming back again,
Riding through the darkness, hiding from the sun,
Refuge in the shades below, until the day is done.

Through the hour glass,
watch my time slip away, Chasing haloes, faces so far away,
And your hands tied to the blade,
Disguised - she's my ascension,
My slow suicide.

She's my ascension, my slow suicide,
I'm chasing heaven, never reach the other side,
Ascension, my slow suicide,
Chase tomorrow, till there's nothing left inside.

Through the hourglass, watch my time slip away,
Chasing haloes, faces so far away,
Can't see, for all the light,
There's two faces, black and scarlet, locked between another night.

Standing on the rooftops, soaking by the rain,
Dreaming of the long deceased, never coming back again,
Riding through the darkness, hiding from the sun,
Refuge in the shades below, until the day is done.

Overdose on darkness She's my ascension,
my slow suicide, I'm chasing heaven,
never reach the other side,
She's my ascension, my slow suicide,
Chasing heroine tonight.
Yeah, ascension, a slow suicide,
Chasing haloes, this is the other side.
Ascension, a slow suicide.
She's my ascension, my slow suicide.
Ascension, my heroine divine. She's my ascension!

THE TEMPEST
With your lips like poison, With the taste of red inside, With another secret waiting, to be sold, Another time. With the kiss of angels, Falling around your head, And another dream, Lies wishing you were dead. Come lay beside me, Hold your fingers tight, Saving grace, a second time, You need it more tonight. In the forest hides the soul of two, The darkest lurks below, Kiss it like your rosary, The storms about To blow.

WITCHING HOUR
Overland, you could take these lifeless hands in yours,
Breathe into me, things I gave up praying for.
Tired of shadow play, through a darker gaze,
Will you take what I want you to?
Will you forsake things you never should?

It's time. Time to set the world alight.

Set your spirit free,
Come across the sky to me,
Give in to insanity,
The Witching Hour.
Wait for me behind the door,
I'll throw your body to the floor,
We will be apart no more,
The Witching Hour.

Can you feel, the fire that's burning me inside?
As your touch, darkens your betraying smile.
Cast unrest aside, it's time to come alive,
I don't think I need to tell you,
Such a mirrored ride

Set your spirit free,
Come across the sky to me,
Give in to insanity,
The Witching Hour.
Wait for me behind the door,
I'll throw your body to the floor,
We will be apart no more,
The Witching Hour.

THE GAUNTLET
You're where I dream;
we're not what could've been,
Living in tomorrow, died in yesterday,
Believe me when I say, there's no where I'd rather be,
I'm on my knees; you're where I pray.

I'm on the floor tonight, I've had it all,
When you're laying down the gauntlet, I love to watch you crawl.
I'm on the floor tonight, I'll take it all,
As I'm laying down the gauntlet, will you catch me when I fall.

You're where I die, where I come alive,
Surround me in flowers, and kiss the past away.

I'm on the floor tonight, I've had it all,
When you're laying down the gauntlet, I love to watch you crawl.
I'm on the floor tonight, I'll take it all,
As I'm laying down the gauntlet, will you catch me when I fall.

This is the end; thirteen's the only friend,
Until I wake up, you're up against the wall.

SIX FEET BELOW
She say's desire leads to despair,
I never said it was, so easy to become,
Another secret, tearing at your heart,
I'm becoming what I swore I'd never be again.
Alone.

I don't need a reason, to take your life,
Just wanna pull you down, six feet below tonight.
I don't care for answers, I don't want your love,
Just wanna make you six feet below.

She says there's time to kill,
I'm never sure what it is they're waiting for.
Some dreamless fucked morality.
They've become what I know I'll never be.
So old.

I don't need a reason, to take your life,
Just wanna pull you down, six feet below tonight.
I don't care for answers, I don't want your love,
Just wanna make you six feet below.

There's nothing left worth taking.
A shallow immitation.
There's nothing left inside.
The ones I wanted died.
Always.
Yeah, you can say what you like, But I never, never lied.
You bitch.

DARKNESS BRINGS
Watching as you turn your eyes to the sky,
Born again through you,
Another second and you lose it all,
Rising up in you,
Hold you down till you can't breathe at all,
Inside you,
And while you sleep he's feeding on the fear,
Burning inside you.

Darkness brings,
The Devil rides on angels wings through the fire.
Won't you dance into the night?
Laugh away the morning light, Come alive!

His darkness bleeds within your heart,
Fallen out of reach,
Sleeps inside you while your soul's on fire,
Waiting by the door.
Still your tears wont end, you suffer his ambition,
Crawling up the walls,
It's such a shame to see your confirmation die in vain,
I bleed in revelations, but it makes me laugh, just the same.

Darkness brings,
The Devil rides on angels wings through the fire.
Won't you dance into the night?
Laugh away the morning light, Come alive!

Keeping faith and the lies you give,
Coming through.
On your knees with the avatars,
Come pouring down.
And the night sings, and your world turns black,
No turning back
Have you lost the will to save your soul,
believe the dreams that you were sold?
Eternal seas and the resurrection lives.

Darkness brings,
The Devil rides on angels wings through the fire.
Won't you dance into the night?
Laugh away the morning light, Come alive!

Inside me it burns me,
it learns me not to kiss what I could kill.
Don't you long to kiss, what you should never, never kill?
Don't you long to kiss, what you should never, never kill?
(A dialogue between the possessor and the possessed.)

LORD OF THE FLIES
With the face, of angels, He's the Lord... the Lord of the Flies
On your knees to the Lord Of The Flies
