Lately I can't catch my breath Visions I can't forget Keep calling me to the depths Like a distant frozen moon Floating in the black sky The light's been hard to come by Balanced on a razor's edge A prayer before every step A prayer before every step Silent, high above our heads A bird that does not sing Watches over everything Is this what you meant by fear of god? Always on the run from ever circling wolves A cold blue light from a blood red sky Another day in paradise Another day in paradise Another day in paradise

Bright lights Tunnel vision Talking back to the television Main-line The white shadow Black flame What's underneath this tableau Kill the lights and lock the door to my cage Feels better when there's nothing to save Eating dust Breathing ashes Something's stirring In the darkness it dances There's blood in the water There's blood in the water There's blood in the water For all we are And never were Raise a glass to the delicate future Was it all just a game? Russian roulette Light your cigarettes You ain't seen nothing yet There's blood in the water There's blood in the water There's blood in the water Can't sleep Can't wake up Gonna drink my blood till it fills them up Can't sleep Can't wake up My god What have we done? We've been chasing something we can't outrun Can't sleep Can't wake up There's blood in the water There's blood in the water You get a taste for it You get a taste for it

DOTTED LINES 03:43
Now that we’ve split ourselves in two Now that we’re heading for disaster Seems like there’s nothing left to do But try to get there faster These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle I’m making no advances I’m in a scene that just repeats So many second chances So many times I’ve tried to Change my shape Create the illusion of a Second face Play back all the tapes and watch me Fade away Throw it all into the fire It always ends this way eventually Lock the door swallow the key These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle These dotted lines Cut me right down the middle These dotted lines

FALSE LIGHT 04:34
Beneath a hologram sky Wrong side of town Electric sun in my eyes Burning me down I’m wide awake It gives It takes Feel the digital daybreak Wash over you Cures you of your heart ache Reds for your blues Dancing ‘round the fire The same but brand new Plugged in and tuned out Smoke pouring from our mouths I’m wide awake It gives It takes Awake but Awake but always dreaming Alive but Can’t quite recall the feeling Beneath a hologram sky Electric sun in my eyes I feel my wild heart beating I feel the false light pouring in

Can't shake the feeling That no one's watching No grand design Just the lines we're drawing No one is shocked Cause nothing's shocking We stare into the abyss I threw myself into the looking glass A million pieces of the past slipped through my hands The sands are shifting It all moves so fast I had my back to the waves I wasn't ready for it I twist I burn I shake I forget my own shape I bend I sway I break But I can taste it I feel it in my bones Still further from the flame I'm taken by the waves I shift I blur I fade But I can taste it I feel it in my bones Some times it feels like Tight rope walking Nothing below So we just keep on falling The wrong side of a velvet rope Always making sure I don't get too close I threw myself into the looking glass A million pieces of the past slipped through my hands The sands are shifting It all moves so fast I had my back to the waves I wasn't ready for it I wanted something And I wanted it pure No cloak and dagger No two way mirrors I see it in the distance Glistening and clear I try to touch it and it disappears I had my back to the waves I twist I burn I shake I forget my own shape I bend I sway I break But I can taste it I feel it in my bones Still further from the flame I'm taken by the waves I shift I blur I fade But I can taste it I feel it in my bones

LIFE TAKER 03:52
You were not always like this Turned up to 12 With state of the art fears Making a killing Armed to the teeth You're always on the hunt for some quick release Habitual creatures stuck on repeat Violence in the name of keeping the peace But you still think you're driving this machine You're living the dream It's just a cage within a cage A house divided It's just a cage within a cage A death by misadventure It's just a cage within a cage You're running in dark circles One look at you It's painfully obvious You pay a heavy price You die a little every time you take a life Got your bullet proof bible Got your bloody crown Got your finger on the trigger when there's no one around But you still think you're driving this machine Kid, what do you mean? It's just a cage within a cage A house divided It's just a cage within a cage A death by misadventure It's just a cage within a cage It's like I never knew you I'd walk right by you on the street And I know if I let you You'd make a killer out of me Cause there's a new life taker born every day It's so hard to watch but you can't look away There's a new life taker born every day There's a price to rebel There's a price to obey There's a new life taker born every day There's a new life taker born every day There's a new life taker born every day There's a new life taker born every day

It’s going down under cover Hands bound at the ivory altar Comes as no surprise Just close your… Dead in the eyes since the first taste Thriving in decadent decay I’ve been biting my tongue I’ve been drinking the blood But now I’m getting sick of that sweet taste You just sink your teeth If it moves it bleeds Must be out of your mind to commit such a crime Must be out of your Out of your Out of your mind You just close your eyes Then you throw the knife You just close your eyes Then you throw the knife White hand with a White glove on Just reflex No love lost We’re doing it by the numbers Comes as no surprise Just close your… Dead in the eyes since the first taste Writhing in decadent decay Now there’s blood on the knife And you’ve taken a life I guess you’ve gotten used to that sweet taste You just sink your teeth And you drink it deep Must be out of your mind to commit such a crime Must be out of your Out of your Out of your mind You just close your eyes Then you throw the knife You just close your eyes Then you throw the knife My god This changes everything My god How could this happen? My god This changes everything My god How could this happen?

SKYSCRAPERS 03:58
My god Since last we spoke I’ve waited I watched you fall away Truth is I never saw it coming I wish I could stay I wish I could stop everything I wish I could stay I wish I could stop everything My god You really had us going You blew us all away You said You’ve gotta keep ‘em guessing I wish you would stay I wish I could stop everything I wish you would stay I wish I could stop everything Somehow I lost my grip I’m falling Through everything I’ve ever experienced I’m drifting Drifting away It all keeps spinning faster Drifting away It all keeps spinning faster Drifting away It all keeps spinning faster Drifting away Drifting away Drifting away Drifting away

Something’s been done That can’t be undone Let the trumpets sound Let the horsemen come Pulled back the curtain To reveal no one It’s just lions and tigers And money and guns Fast as you can You can’t outrun The setting sun Thought it was over But the end has just begun Don’t look now We’re going down Fast as you can You can’t outrun The setting sun Thought it was over But the end has just begun Fast as you can You can’t outrun The setting sun Thought it was over But the end has just begun We’re going down boys It don’t look pretty We’re going down boys It don’t look pretty We’re going down boys It don’t look pretty We’ll spread our ashes All over this city We’re going down boys It don’t look pretty We’ll spread our ashes All over this city Look out! Fast as you can You can’t outrun The setting sun Thought it was over But the end has just begun Thought it was over You can’t run Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Thought it was over You can’t run Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Thought it was over You can’t run Ashes to ashes Dust to dust

I know it ain’t over yet I flick the ash from my electronic cigarette Will I always miss the real thing Or will I forget? Will I forget? Is the whole thing a test? I place the weights One by one upon my chest Closer to god Closer to death Shortness of breath And now The ground is shaking hard And I’m running in the dark Falling apart Still the problem persists It makes me sick But still I clench my fist Are we twisting this knife just to prove that we exist? I mean how could we resist? Then the telephone sings A familiar voice from inside the machine It whispers in my ear We were never really here We were never really here Yeah I saw the whole thing Like a video game I was frozen in place Waiting to be erased Brought me down to my knees Smell of wet concrete The city skips and repeats The city skips and repeats And now The ground is shaking hard And I’m running in the And now The ground is shaking hard And I’m running in the dark
