Track Name: Ghost Ship
Such bittersweet memories
of the ghostly song you'd sing
I'd rather die in the winter
than live for the spring

Just to watch it melt our love away

Such a beautifully reluctant oceanic migraine
Moving under my skin
But as a glacier upon a sea, so much goes unseen
in the waves, beneath the pain and the hate

I'm a man of depth, and death himself
is hesitant to speak my name
All shall know my rage.

Such bittersweet memories,
oh that song you sing,
you sing it only for me
Between the autumn and spring

And you glide on that ghastly ship
coming out of the fog,
still singing that goddamn song
I know I'd forsake it all
Just for a moment to no longer carry your sorrow
like a world upon my back
Track Name: Omega
I have only begun

I am Omega

The nightmare is set in stone
and it's getting closer to reality every day
These shadows calling your name in your mind
begin to take shape
The nightmare
Is set in stone
and it's getting closer
to reality shaping in your mind

And I can't remember
The way it felt
To breathe in without
ashes filling my lungs

forever stranded
here alone
Forever stranded
the rest reduced to bones

who could have known
or expected of our mother star
as love evolved into rage
and rage into hate
I watched the ocean
dissolve into the sky
before my eyes
every grain of sand
turned to glass

This is the end
Even day is as black as night
and I watch as the last light dies
our planet, humanity no more
we knew it was inevitable

take a step back, see the truth for what it is
the universe doesn't even notice,
it's much to big to care
This is the end, but there's no one left to give a shit
Track Name: Leviathan
The weight of a broken heart
stretched too thin, pulled too far
When the distance between your words
and my arms, has never been further apart

oh, the images that time has burnt into my mind
line after line
of the lies you trusted me not to tell,
that I buried inside
oh, the promises you burnt to the ground
the moment he came around
Finally the truth comes out,
you only think of yourself

The weight of a broken heart
stretched too thin, pulled too far
When the distance between your words
and my arms, has never been further apart

I swore I'd bury you,
I drowned the mirror you whispered sweet nothings through
but nothing's through,
turns out I'm not quite over you
year after year, you bled through the cracks
in the prison walls I call my mind
I thought I buried you some five years back
but you came back by a flickering light

The weight of a broken heart
stretched too thin, pulled too far
When the distance between your words
and my arms, has never been further apart

Remember the quiet place I took you?
our little slice of paradise.
I meant every word that I said back then,
but goddamn if I'm forgiving this

The weight of a broken heart
stretched too thin, pulled too far
When the distance between your words
and my arms, has never been further apart

oh, the images that time has burnt into my mind
line after line
of the lies you trusted me not to tell,
that I buried inside
but I've changed with time.
Track Name: Cerci, The Contortionist
Twisting aimlessly, without direction.
From faltered limbs, at a slow but painful rush.
A lovely porcelain perfection.
What a shame such a velvet must be crushed.

Tonight, I'll drown in your deep blue eyes.
Tonight, I'll drown in y our sea of lies.
Tomorrow, I'll hate you for contorting my heart.
But tonight, my surmise is the only thing that keeps me afloat.

She twists her words, like unprogressing poetry.
Her lips and sounds she makes, don't seem to agree.
All I hear is lies, such a delicate banshee.
But, I can't give up on her, for the life of me.

Freshly cleaned curtains drawn to pour light onto dirty walls.
She sings in her sleep, but the tune she carries is of awful things.
And suicide is no longer an option,
Only because we always kill ourselves too late.

She twists her words, like unprogressing poetry.
Her lips and sounds she makes, don't seem to agree.
All I hear is lies, such a delicate banshee.
But I can't give up on her for the life of me.

You're the kind of beautiful that ends badly.
But if you strangle a flower, it just spreads its seeds.
She twists her words, unprogressing poetry.
But I can't give up on her for the life of me.

Oh, contortionist.
Twisting my heart will suffice,
As she bends over backwards to tell me,
"I was the queen of paradise."
Track Name: Absolute Zero
If you blink you'll miss the best part,
With the cumbersome weight of his broken heart.
So says the caesura, she might be right.
He just might lose it all tonight.

I'm sorry I'm such an ongoing case of imperfection,
A gallery of mistakes.
But the way she shakes, those inhuman quakes,
As the wind chill begins to drop.

The irony is not lost on me,
That her time spent is measured in soliloquy.

Fallacies that words present.
The ones that I resent.
If they're truly heaven sent, then I forgot what those words meant.

Leaning over the waterfall,
To watch the jealousy she creates cascade and erode the sharp rocks below.
The temperature drops and soon so will she.

But if you blink you'll miss the show.

The wind chill hurts her face on the way down.
She shakes those inhuman quakes.
But the irony is not lost on me.

She's sorry.
She'll never darken anyone's doorstep again,
And she's imperfect at terminal velocity.
Track Name: E.V.I.L.
You are quickly becoming
the very vision of that fucking ghost

Dive right in, the story begins again:
Oh, Hamartia, I always knew the end,
but your tears are such sweet
sorrowful wine
I'll toast to our demise.

Oh, the serenity implicitly promised me.
Briefly I'll bury my instincts for sanity's sake.
Do you know the feel of a glacier break?

My frostbitten heart is aching,
and your lifeless lips don't have the answer I seek.
Oh, Hamartia, how could I be so weak?

While I was drowning in my sea of rage,
you parted the water and stood between the waves.
I am an avatar of obsession,
and tonight you are pale in my eyes.

If you could see my trembling knees.
Oh, the serenity implicitly promised me.
You're my sleeping beauty,
and this is our last kiss goodbye.

Don't wake up, you might miss the ending.
Don't wake up, you might miss the ending.

Briefly I'll bury my instincts for sanity's sake.
Do you know the sound of a glacier break?
Do you feel these last breaths I take?
I'd whisper your name, if my lungs would permit it.

I was drowning in a sea of rage.
You found me that way.
I should have died that day.
Instead, you parted the waves.
You eased the ache, and then you ran away.

I should have died that day.
You eased the ache, and then you ran away.
You held my frostbitten heart in your hand
and watched the glacier break.
Track Name: Sinking The Vatican
Entry dramatic,
but the exit wound was more traumatic
I'm enigmatic,
the voice screaming at you through the static

All your followers are worth a mention,
no dimension's pretension rivals ascension,
my intention's envisioning sentience on a level
that will never let a rebel ever sever the cleverness of an antithiest
cause you run this shitty city
slowly sinking, and I think it's fitting
watching it burning, and turning with yearning,
I'm learning there are no godly men here,
death is the only thing to fear, and I have arrived

It's like I'm satanic, and I'm an addict
erratic so panic in every direction
your god will give no protection
corner you off in sections,
elect to vivisect your holy elect until there's no one left

I have arrived.
Are you prepared to die?


(Such perfect beauty/ in catastrophe,
Such perfect moments/are what make history)

The softest snow touches down,
mixed in with the ash, her city drowns
across the sea of glass, her blazing mass is seen one last time
reflected in the water, in the night, in my eyes
the city sinks into the sea,
remember me, she sings, while angels weep,
the wicked flee, her children scream and plea,
but there is no escape
Track Name: Sin Incarnate
I refuse to ever make you unhappy again.
Drowning myself in the bottom of this well,
until you forget what it meant to stand for something.

times weren't perfect, but neither am I
My knees tremble, remembering every night I spent,
listening to every thing you had to say

every time I enter that sad empty room
I catch myself expecting to see you
you look up at me, eyes as cryptic as catacombs
A mystery poor little me never found the answer to

rolling over scroll after scroll of all the words I never said,
my thoughts of dread, my book of the dead
a tasteless sentence uttered once or twice, a thousand times
replace her, erasure, I'm out of my mind
rolling over scroll after scroll of all the words I never said,
my thoughts of dread, my book of the dead
a tasteless sentence uttered once or twice, a thousand times
replace her, erasure, I'm out of my mind

I've been every place but home this past fortnight or so
hiding in basements and attics, waiting for the end to come
Someday I swear I'll fly to those havens we called our own
I'll sing out of key, "she'll always love me"
while burning down our home

Letter by letter; page by page
you tore out my chapter

and blacked out my name
some things never change.
you never fail to bring me to rage.

every time I enter that sad empty room
I catch myself expecting to see you
you look up at me, eyes as cryptic as catacombs
oh, the depth of those frozen lakes all men succumb to.

I'm not a victim, just a martyr of circumstance
writing from attics and basements, wringing my hands.
Someday I swear I'll find you and bury the hatchet
in the back of your neck, you bitch.

I refuse to ever make you unhappy again.
Again implies this time has to end.
Track Name: My Darkness (Burn pt. II)
If misery
truly loves it's company
why would I leave?
do you blame me?
This irony
the copper taste still fills my lungs
You are no longer gone

I proselytized, caricaturized a symbol in your name
put you on a pedestal, you stood for my pain
but now you're real again
now you're here again

There are no easy answers
I'm clearly not the only one
suffering from the nightmares
why do you think we can't move on?
There are no easy answers
I'm clearly not the only one
suffering from the nightmares
why do you think we can't move on?

Some kind of fucked affection
permanent viral infection
Stay away for our protection
yet here you are.
There are no easy answers
I don't expect any
I'm not compromising
You could never lie to me

I've lived this life
a thousand fucking times
I still do everything for you
Sometimes I forget why
I've lived this life
a thousand fucking times
I still do everything for you
Sometimes I forget why

But then I see you again
I need an answer to this
You are my darkness, closing in
I feel the panic, my lungs caving
I can't handle these failings

so come and watch me burn
come and watch me burn

burn with me
Track Name: Emperor Zurg
hold me under
push me further

your fear of me has sealed your defeat

conqueror of worlds, your words mean nothing here
on this planet you laid bare, like so many before this
you wouldn't raise a finger to save a life
you've gone unchallenged for far too long, to believe yourself a god
you wouldn't raise a finger to save a life
you've gone unchallenged for far too long, to believe yourself a god

hold me under
push me further
Track Name: Forever Winter
Divinity, The sort I can never keep
within my reach
I'd drop everything
Just to make you see
Just to have you dream of me.

Faces like yours
move in and out of the walls
and the pressure in my head
just keeps on growing into noise
until all that I hear
are the words that you're screaming at me

Such a beautiful ocean
Moving under my skin
And between the rain and the waves
I see the ship on which we sank

Nothing can change my mistake,
but love doesn't have to evolve into rage
nor tragedy into hate.

Such a beautiful ocean
Moving under my skin
And between the pain and the hate
I see the ship on which we sank
Such irreverent notions,
that this would become my end
and between the blood in my veins and the ink on the page
your hands are forever stained

Your ghost is silently screaming,
your lips form the words that haunt me to this day
Your echoes beyond the grave,
always repeating my name

Such a beautiful ocean
Moving under my skin
And between the rain and the waves
I see the ship on which we sank
Such a beautiful ocean
Moving under my skin
And between the rain and the waves
I see the ship on which we sank

This migraine never seems to cease,
you're moving within me,
You finally stepped out of my dreams,
and back into reality.
but it's so much colder than it was before...
I've grown from a boy into a man in the time you've been gone
I wish I could say sorry and have it mean enough to me to move on
Seeing the you that you became in the years I used to escape
I'm finally, truly letting you go
