Sleeper

Dropped in seclusion the eye of the storm
The art of deception influence inform
It's empty consuming wish I could forestall
The morning I become betrayer of them all
Deceive and infiltrate
Confuse control their fate

A pattern developed I've learned to perform
A good little liar false feelings on show
It's so disembodied the crackling voice
Making it know that I have no choice
Deceive and infiltrate
Confuse control their fate
Deceive and infiltrate

It's the curse of the unknown soldier
But it's all that I've come to know
I am the sleeper trapped in this cell that haunts me
It's the curse of the unknown soldier
But it's all that I've come to know
I am the sleeper trapped in this cell that haunts me
That haunts me

It's unforgivable
It's so dismal
The only life I will ever know
Draws to a close

It's the curse of the unknown soldier
But it's all that I've come to know
I am the sleeper trapped in this cell that haunts me
It's the curse of the unknown soldier
But it's all that I've come to know
I am the sleeper trapped in this cell that haunts me




Unspoken

So deeply seeded
Misreadings viewed as trust
As a collective monological
Filled with smiles, deceit and distrust

We're so oblivious, unwilling
Cause there must be nothing wrong
Unrelenting self-obsession instrumental
Fundamental and life-long

The torments of the damned

We are all what we already know
Misinformed but dying to show
Bound by illusions with nowhere to go
Always deluded, scared, irrational

Ulterior motives
Dispelling all till we're crushed
With a sickening efficiency
We continue feeding mistrust

We keep alienating
We have no recourse
We are claiming transparency
Such a lie with no remorse

We are all what we already know
Misinformed but dying to show
Bound by illusions with nowhere to go
Always deluded, scared, irrational

The torment of the damned




Saints and Sinners

Till I'm complete
Till I've destroyed
Till everything goes back to
A place within that is no more
A place one can't imagine

All rationale left and pushed aside
Drive through religion for jaded minds
A social order of blatant lies
Oblivious the ignorant march side by side
Side by side

Blood red skies
And tears in eyes
Screaming children perish
A world collapse
They run like rats
Eternal void of us

All rationale left and pushed aside
Drive through religion for jaded minds
A social order of blatant lies
Oblivious the ignorant march side by side
Side by side




As I Drown

Fear has quickened the heartbeat
But we're fiends wanting more
Who would ever believe
You've replenished the need
We're still begging at your door

This is your cue to go
Yeah you should know
What this means to me

You've been dragging this out
Now, for way too long
It's time to cage or set me free

And I have, tried my hardest
And you have, beat me down
Cause it's the same old situation
Pouring, water as I drown
And I have tried my hardest
And you have beat me down

Stepping over the threshold
To usher in new times
We've been running on vapours
But that won't make us
Change our crooked lives

Cause now we're moving on
We're way too strong
We will wring you dry

You've been dragging this out
Now for way too long
It's time to say goodbye

And I have tried my hardest
And you have beat me down
Cause it's the same old situation
Pouring, water as I drown
And I have tried my hardest
And you have beat me down

Walking against wind-driven rain
Tangled in a blanket of your lies
You're fucking killing me

And I have tried my hardest
And you have beat me down
Cause it's the same old situation
Pouring, water as I drown
And I have tried my hardest
And you have beat me down




Porcelain

Look up and over
I'm inside you

Your skin so pretty with
Shades of black and blue

I need you now
I need you helpless on the floor

Do as you're told
I will consume you to the core

A controlling beast,
The ultimate release

For a twisted heart
Helpless and torn apart

Calm and compliant
In my sweet restrain

Looking so fragile my
Blue-veined porcelain

I need you now, I need to
Give you all my shame

There is no safe word here
Because this is not a game

A controlling beast,
The ultimate release

For a twisted heart,
Helpless and torn apart

If you could see in me, with your attentive eyes
I want to taste you empty, exposing what's inside

A controlling beast,
The ultimate release

For a twisted heart,
Helpless and torn apart




New Approach

Silence the only relief
Welcome to your ultimate low
Feeling so hard-done-by
The time has come to make you believe

Vexed and concerned only now that you're threatened
Pathetic detached absentee

This is the hardship of being
This is the state of us all
We're empty vessels daydreaming
With no intervening, it's time for a new approach

Look forward to one day soon
When you're shunned by every companion
Give up surrender surpass
Too little too fucking late

Vexed and concerned only now that you're threatened
Pathetic detached absentee

This is the hardship of being
This is the state of us all
We're empty vessels daydreaming
With no intervening, it's time for a new approach




Fragments of Hope

There's no final wisdom, no terminal thought
These marks and these sounds are embedded in all we're taught
No reference referred to when all's said and done
We bark at each other with a primitive tongue
The outlines of confusion

Fragments of hope never shedding light
Try our best but this fuel won't ignite
Familiar mistakes carried through life
Try our best but there's no end in sight

One cannot find meaning with intent alone
Preconceptions and ideas have been dethroned
No end to the flow of our information
For better or worse we must still carry on
The outlines of confusion

Fragments of hope never shedding light
Try our best but this fuel won't ignite
Familiar mistakes carried through life
Try our best but there's no end in sight




The Infection

Claw it back with injured hands
They so love to ignore

There's not way to know
How long we've held on to these lies

Speak out and take control
Somehow we'll make it through
No they can't take us all

We are the ones you tried to hide
We are the infection deep inside

They could never hold us back
Their time has come and gone

Always look our way in doubt,
Their patronising eyes

So speak out and take control
Somehow we'll make it through
No they can't take us all

We are the ones you tried to hide
We are the infectious deep inside

Can we find a better way?
Pushed aside and led astray
Letting go of nothing is so easy




The Mourning After

Take a look at the night before and
Take a look at what you've done

It's not real you can feel the tension
Crawl and hide away

Hold on, head strong
Yeah, I've done wrong

Hey now, don't pull yourself apart
Yeah, come on down and let's do it from the start

Rub my eyes and wipe the sleep off
I must have had too much to dream

It's so real I can feel the tension
Pressure in my brain

Hold on, head strong
Yeah, I've done wrong

Hey now, don't pull yourself apart
Yeah, come on down and let's do it from the start




Five Minutes

Been here by your side
God I hope you'll fight and carry on

All my life I've known nothing else
But you to be my own
You are my home

And it's breaking me
I cannot bear the thought
I'm still holding on to some idea that is supernatural

And I can't believe
That there's nothing left to say
And I hold this pain inside my chest and it won't go away

Unbelievable
When there is nothing left to do
I got this all pouring out of me, how I'm missing you

Sometimes I feel alright
But that feeling it just comes and it goes
It always goes

Oh it's draining me
The idea that you've gone for sure
For evermore

And it's breaking me
I cannot bear the thought
I'm still holding on to some idea and it's supernatural

And I can't believe
That there's nothing left to say
And I hold this pain inside my chest and it won't go away

Unbelievable
When there is nothing left to do
I got this all pouring out of me, how I'm missing you

And I can't believe
That there's nothing left to say
And I hold this pain inside my chest and it won't go away

Unbelievable
When there is nothing left to do
I got this all pouring out of me, how I'm missing you




No Place Like Home

One day when it all changed
Nothing will be the same
Leave us in pieces and take all the blame

We've been lied to for years
All trust has disappeared
And we're not listening to what you've got to say

Just walk away

Fall to your knees and pray for forgiveness
Maybe time has healed our wounds
But these scars are too deep

Shell of a broken man
Never completed plans
Look back in time before it all began

Sadness is brought upon
This life that I've strayed from
I've come to realise that there is no place like home

Fall to your knees and pray for forgiveness
Maybe time has healed our wounds
But these scars are too deep

Fall to your knees and pray for forgiveness
