Track Name: War of Words
We’re going in circles
Not getting very far from here
we’re taking our chances
ignoring the things we don’t want to hear
won’t drop my defences
Don’t let the enemy come into play
we’re throwing our words ‘round
Saying the things we don’t need to say

Chorus x 2
Playing out games when the damage is done
Firing slander from a loaded gun
There’s never a winner, everybody gets hurt
In a stupid war of words

Frustrations occurring
Pressure building within these walls
Resisting temptation
Pushing the limit where my patience falls
It’s feeling so crowded
Being exposed, nowhere left to hide
You are so blinded
and now It’s clear you never really tried

Playing out games when the damage is done
Firing slander from a loaded gun
There’s never a winner, everybody gets hurt
In a stupid war of words
Track Name: Counterattack
You never believe a word I say
Oh what point is there telling the truth anyway

For years gone by I’ve been so hollow
Dead to the world your rules followed
Fed up of fighting feeling frustration
Wanting to find a new destination
The bomb went off with atomic proportion
Standing alone within the distortion
Walking away from this poisonous place
My saving grace

Chorus
You never believe a word I say
Oh what point is there telling the truth anyway
Now you are the fool who has been played
You can take it all back I counter attack

You have a face for every occasion
Living your lies to force your persuasion
Deception was always your aim
I wont play your game

You never believe a word I say
Oh what point is there telling the truth anyway
Now you are the fool who has been played
You can take it all back I counter attack
Track Name: Silent Scream
Let me have you
Tear you down
Let me own you
Make you drown
Wipe the slate
leave a smear
You know I’ll never
Disappear.

My presence you will always feel
Comparisons you have to make
Though they say I’m not real
I will keep you in this lonely state
A shadow of normality
Living in la Maladie
knowing it’s just a dream
The echo of a silent scream

The thing that holds you
You are it’s own
your identity
With you it’s grown
Write a letter
Returned to sender
Now give in with
total surrender

My presence you will always feel
Comparisons you have to make
Though they say I’m not real
I will keep you in this lonely state
A shadow of normality
Living in la Maladie
knowing it’s just a dream
The echo of a silent scream
Track Name: Paradise
Come into the garden baby
Whispered words that she says to me
As we made our way into paradise
Wear my boots if you wanna baby
Open your mind and let yourself be free
If you wanna take a ride with me

Never think of it as sin
Escape from the body that you're in
Be whatever you want to be

Open your eyes and you will see
Life’s not like it's meant to be
Everything’s better in sunlight
But don't be afraid of the dark
Open your arms and we will feel
this is how it’s meant to be
Everything’s better in sunlight
But don't be afraid of the dark

(She says)
Walk into the void now baby
Go to places that you've never been
Your own little paradise
(She says)
I'll tie your arms down baby
Wrap you round my fingers wait and see
And never let you go from me

Secrets of pleasure gone untold
Your desires cannot be controlled
Not unless they're controlled by me

Open your eyes and you will see
Life’s not like it's meant to be
Everything’s better in sunlight
But don't be afraid of the dark
Open your arms and we will feel
This is how it’s meant to be
Everything’s better in sunlight
But don't be afraid of the dark

(She says)
Wear my boots if you wanna baby
(She says)
Wear my dress if you wanna baby
(She says)
Be whatever you wanna baby
(She says)
Track Name: Escape
No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away, no need to hide away
No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away,


Welcome back to reality
Things aren’t gonna go your way
You only see what you wanna see
No more time for the things you say
Forget the world that you’ve left behind
No more temptation left you see
Another gift that you left, in kind
Turned into another pain for me

Nothing lasts forever,
Temporary Traffic in and outta this place
We always have to change, we never stay the same
Leaving a hollow and empty space


No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away, no need to hide away
No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away,

Another day in reality
No more thoughts left to betray
You’ve lived your life in black and white
but never saw the shades of grey
What’s the point in wishing
Patience not a gift you possess
I expected nothing
And you gave it back to me I guess

It didn’t last forever,
Temporary Traffic in and outta this place
We always have to change, we never stay the same
Leaving a hollow and empty space

No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away, no need to hide away
No need to run away, no need to run away
No need to hide away, There’s no more need to escape
Track Name: Light
A feeling deep inside
That I have to turn and hide
that I have to turn and run
towards the morning sun
Frustratingly confined
within the walls of my mind
in the walls of my home
there's nowhere left to go

A new found alter ego on a voyage of discovery
sailing murky waters, adrift in a sea of nothing

What is left to find, when you're searching through your mind
And thinking about things you could have done
There’s no time for regrets, because everyone forgets
When you’re safe and warm in the light of the morning sun

Religiously defined
by the ones we leave behind
the ones who let us go
and everyone we know
Old thoughts set aside
of the love that has now died
of the past that has now gone
And how nobody won

Trying to remember, just how things have changed
It doesn’t really matter, tomorrow’s a new day

What is left to find, when you're searching through your mind
And thinking about things we could have done
There’s no time for regrets, because everyone forgets
When you’re safe and warm in the light of the morning sun

What is left to find, when you're searching through your mind
And thinking about things we could have done
There’s no time for regrets, because everyone forgets
When you’re safe and warm in the light of the morning sun

in the light of the morning sun
in your arms in the morning sun
Track Name: Complicated Machine
Dancing on the edge
Life is just the same
I am all undone
In each and every way
You took away from me
A fragment of reality
Can you hear my voice
You broke all my parts

I wanna tell you, you damaged me intensely
Yeah, You put the fuel in the machine

Dancing on the edge
Life was just the same
This I have become
now each and every day
You gave a gift to me
A fragment of insanity
Can you hear me now
I'll fix all my parts

Thank you for the neurosis that plagues me
Yeah, You put the fuel in the machine
You put the fuel in the machine
You put the fuel in the machine
You put the fuel in my machine

Dancing on the edge
Life was just the same
I am all undone
In each and every way.
Track Name: St. Perfect
Judge me not, the devil’s phone is ringing
Conversations full of fear and lies
The truth be known, a purer heart was singing
Calling me to look into her eyes

Passion and purpose, the things that make us human
Thinking about all of the things I’ve done

Here we come, Our time has just begun
They’ll all say, it’s not real anyway, for display
In your eyes no room for compromise
Telling Truth or Lies you’re saint perfect in disguise

Cast me out, your love was not worth knowing
You told me I was now dead in your eyes
He who cast the first stone did the throwing
You’re Saint fucking perfect in disguise

Secrets and silence, they always seemed to suit you
Thinking about the things you never said

Here we come, Our time has just begun
They’ll all say, it’s not real anyway, for display
In your eyes no room for compromise
Telling Truth or Lies you’re saint perfect in disguise

Here we come, our time has just begun
In your eyes, you’re saint perfect in disguise
Track Name: Angel of Protection
I wont fight you
I wont let you bring me down no more
Just to spite you
You'll never see me back knocking at your door

Take it away, Lock it away
Don’t need this in my mind today
Take it away, There’s no more to say
I’m glad I left you anyway

You left your mark, a wake up call
Busy wasting my affection
too late to stop, I had to fall
Catch me now, angel of protection

I won’t hurt you
I won’t have you crying on the floor
Do I disturb you ?
another question you have no answer for

Take it away, Lock it away
Don’t need you in my mind today
Just take it away, no more you can say
Forget you more and more everyday

You left your mark, a wake up call
Busy wasting my affection
too late to stop, I had to fall
Catch me now, angel of protection
Speech sample break

You left your mark, a wake up call
Busy wasting my affection
too late to stop, I had to fall
Catch me now, angel of protection

You left your mark, a wake up call
Busy wasting my affection
too late to stop, I had to fall
Catch me now, angel of protection

Catch my fall Angel of protection
Hear my call, Angel of protection
Track Name: We Fly
Imagine there is nothing
But air against our skin
Feeling, such a feeling
Of being what’s within

So let’s fly, let’s fly today
We fly, fly away….

Intensely we are viewing
What we are seeing and how we feel
In tune with each other
And unfamiliar with what is real

So let’s fly, let’s fly today
We fly, fly away
We’ll fly, we fly today
Let’s fly, fly away…

So let’s fly, let’s fly today
We fly, fly away
We’ll fly, we fly today
Let’s fly, fly away

No more secrets
No more hiding
No more sadness
No more crying
Just remember
to keep on smiling
leave it all behind
and keep on flying
