Track Name: Exist
Dear, to whom it may concern
Here is where we shall return
Once a boy with life upon his breath
Before you went and scared yourself to death

Long forgotten left behind
Too afraid to try
Over thinking, sun deprived
Catcher in the rye

So savor the time
Your iris turns blind
To all the things
You’ve should of seen

This purpose of mine
Is sacrificed
For everything
You could’ve been

Please take caution and take heed
These are darker days indeed
Oblivious to all that’s been erased
Severed Hands will break your fall from grace
Feeling Pressure, feeling numb
You decide what we become

Stay the course and stay the path
Capture what you can
Nothing changes nothing lasts
Do you understand?

Well, savor the time
Your iris turns blind
To all the things
You’ve should of seen

This purpose of mine
Is sacrificed
For everything
That could’ve been

I was made from indigo
(Just a child)
I was made from indigo
(Dreaming)

I was made from indigo X4

Prophecy, from yourself post-apocalypse
Tragedy struck the land you were warned of this
Now destiny has been destroyed for you do not exist
Exist
Exist

Experience
Never stood a chance
We have to prove them wrong

We’ll savor the time
Your iris turns blind
To all the things
You’ve should of seen

This purpose of mine
Is sacrificed
To everything
That could have been

And we won’t survive
If you decide
There’s only
Silence at the end

If we’re still alive
Or Meet demise
Remember
This is how it all began

I was made from indigo
I was made from indigo
Track Name: Awanasa
Will I rise again or fall
Will you defend it all

Little ornery boy
Sitting on his throne of thorns
He will strike you down
With his crown of clouds

Lost your direction
With good times for granted
Running back

Bleach into your eyes
Preach into mine
Lies

Little angry boy
Staring at the sun
He has given up
He is watered down

Dreaming in a semi-sober state
Legendary tales of my escape
Know that you’re forgiven
Sorry that it’s true
Best believe im gone because of you
Apathy and anxious things that I create
Learn from my mistakes

Seemed to have worn out my welcome
Here at home, alone
Maybe we’ll wind up in nowhere
Good enough…
Good enough…
That’s ok

Haven’t slept for eons at a time
Ordinary and one of a kind
Innocence lost innocence again
All of my beginnings at an end

Sacrifice the chosen interval
Frightened by becoming miserable
And though the consequence of love severe,
Anywhere is better than here
Track Name: Mira, Now The Girl
Guilty for meeting her
She’s one who prays for Lucifer
I guess I’ll go to hell
God knows she wants me to

A pretty faced disease
And envious of enemies
I'm running out of things
to talk about

You’ll take her, she’s ready
To break in black confetti
The saddest part is that she knows
She knows…

And if left on her own
She’s met with great delirium
So bad at interrupting
Speak of the angel

You’ll take her she’s ready
To break in black confetti
The saddest part is that she knows

Believer, deceiver
Poor girl of every color
That saddest part is now she knows
She knows

It’s blown to smithereens
And you don’t wanna be
What you already are

Find beauty if any
Celebrates with black confetti
The saddest part is when she goes

You’ll take her
Don’t need your fucking pity
The saddest part is now I know
I know now I know now I know
(Be Cool, Be happy)
Track Name: Iscariot
Samaritan,
Benzonian,
Charlatan,
Segregation
Of us.

Gather thy hands
Voices entwined
Cherished
Brothers mine.

Where hast thou attendance dispersed?
Lost to yonder lands less traversed.
Who hath changed both manner and tide?
Twas the zephyr come to die.

Oh, cursed day
Treason i fear
Will ye also go
Away?

Lo! our blood and oath betrayed
and betroth the boy to loss
and lament
kissed upon in a garden

Silence in the end
Aestivation
Own familiar friends
Friends for thirty...

Soprano :Pensive knowing moral sense whenever...
Alto: Penance sacred, no more, sense whenever...
Tenor: Pence saved knowing moral sense when...
Bass: Pence sacred knowing moral sense ends.....

All things fall apart.

Amen

Soprano: Dark, tore the light asunder. Hark! we unite forever dark, tore the light asunder. Hark! we unite forever....

Alto: Darker light, from a sun, Hark! unite. Gone forever darker light, from a sun. Hark! unite. Now forever....

Bass: Dark, tore the light, sons had dearth of heart, we unite, find you in the dark, tore the light, songs had dearth of heart, we unite, we're forever...

Tenor: All is forgiven is All is forgiven is...


One.
Track Name: Pearls Before Swine
Behold! The Monster
Dependent on a Brother
Spectator, and True connoisseur
The Great Adulterer

Induce a conversation X2

Fleshed filled and, oh so contrite
My favorite, parasite
Nostalgia attack, in retrospect.
Has revealed the Neophyte

Induce a conversation X4

God-damn
Chocked full of shit
Lactose and tolerant
I could, I should
Let you be the alpha-fucking-male


Induce a conversation X4

What a shame,
What a shame to blame
What a shame
What a shame to blame

Yeah, slight change of plans.
Hirudinea return the blood sucked from my open hand
Anesthetize, (with pesticide) won’t recognize the crime
So take your time, take your time, just take your precious
Time, time, ttttttttttoooooooooooooOOOOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMEEEEEEEEEEEdsbaflasfouyrouoinlhoasy7894u5wurbhgvslakjnbvfaylsuid;jk
Track Name: GET PARANOID
*Row, Row, Row your Boat, Gently down the stream, Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a….
Wake up boys, Wake up.
Its medication time.*

Put her in a locket
Put her in charge
Put her in a rocket
Send her to mars

Put her in a locket
Close to your heart
Put her in your pocket
Put you in a coffin

How unusual
Finding you in places
Where you don’t belong at all

Said you wouldn’t touch her
Leave her alone
Lights are getting dimmer
But I think there’s someone home

On your best behavior
Teeth through the tongue
Said you wouldn’t trust her
Locked you in the cellar

How unusual
Finding you in places
Where you don’t belong at all

Mirrors tell the truth my dear
Friends are scarce around here
Only strangers with you now

"I do believe i'm done for the eve lads. But if you do decide to continue I shan’t be offended"

Imagination incapacitated x8

May I have your attention ladies and gents
Jack and Jays productions is proud to present
A remedy for malady to bring back your smiles
‘Cause all your symptoms say you got a case of the Nihils

Side effects include your friends going up to hell
Pretend to be pretentious, let them fend for themselves
Cause it’s the latest craze for all the girls and the boys
Time to get paranoid
Track Name: Matthew 14:31
Come along
Now his kingdom gone
As it falls into the sea
Built of stone and misery

What a drag
That companies a drug
Only sad when he’s alone
Different kind of animal

Can’t Believe I used to hate you…
Lydia

Sitting there
Covered in despair
It’s exactly what he feared
All his friends have disappeared

Little faith
In what he cannot see
Different kind of animal
That’s beautiful.

Can’t Believe I used to hate you…
Lydia

God is not enough
Blamed it all on us
Not invited he’s decided
Everything at once

God is nodding off
Blamed it all on us
Not invited he’s decided
Everything at once

I’ve run out of luck
Shepard’s lost his flock
Not invited he’s decided
God is tuckered out
Track Name: Silver & Cyanide
You thought you had me beaten down
You should be hung for treason now

Don’t let her crawl under your skin
Don’t know the places she has been

You left your passions far behind
Your cowardice has changed your mind

Don’t let her crawl under your skin
Don’t know the places she has been

Burned out eaten alive
I will not give in, no i'm never satisfied
Silver and cyanide
Selling out your kin traded for your blood and pride

Don’t let her crawl under your skin
She swayed the hearts of better men

Burned out eaten alive
I will not give in, no i'm never satisfied
Get out its suicide
I will not give in, I will not give in
I would rather die
Track Name: Aftermath
Who could’ve known?
I’d steal your soul’s sensations
With blood-red accusations up and
Down these walls
Tonight
My dear delighted pet
With things I could’ve said
But never will.

Traded secrets,
swapped our lies,
gave up kisses, whispers, laughs, and sighs
Justified
And just a dream
Don’t be fooled
I’m stronger than I seem

Beautiful to bits
Without a choice
I lost my courage
Then I finally lost my voice
Alright
Another night of loneliness
The hurt feels better close than at my
Distance

To the end
For Juliet
Romeo is just another friend
Out of place
and out of touch
on this earth I have returned to dust

Not again
For Juliet
Romeo is just another friend
Out of place
and out of touch
on this earth I have returned to dust

But ill remember
This aftermath
Words that seem to fall right through the cracks

Through greater pain
Ill remain
Till I am complete again
Track Name: Marrow
I could guess your
Favorite
Colors of
Your thoughts

Marrow splits your
Skin, but
I could patch
It up

Tarp and tape
Tarp and tape
Pads the edge
Pads the edge
Of the
Sky

I could guess your
Favorite
Colors of
Your thoughts

Marrow splits your
Skin, but
I could patch
It up
But I
Will let
You down

Tarp and tape
Tarp and tape
Pads the edge
Pads the edge

Tarp and tape
Tarp and tape
Pads the edge
Pads the edge
Of the….
Track Name: The Aberration
One for the silence that is me
One for the alcoholic dream
One for the greatest apathy
And for the beauty

One for splendor that is she
One for the aching, breaking
Never mind and nevermore
Matter doesn’t matter anymore

A boy, a town
Hunter and Hound
A fox of red
A dream for the dead

Wake up X8

A melody in his head
A memory in his hand
Now the fool has failed
Snake consumes his tail
Favorite black machine
The ants betray their queen

Traded all I had
Destroyed all I have
And cast away the things I ever will
In favor of oblivion

One more
Another
Farewell
To slumber

Wake up x8

A melody in his head
A memory in her hand
What the boy has learned
Here he has returned
Feast your eyes and weep
He forever sleeps

One for the last anomaly (sing your final song)
One for the last atrocity (you’ve done nothing wrong)
One for the last apology (say you’re sorry)
And for her mercy

My dear forgive me
She’s here I’m ready.
Track Name: Year of The Fox (Dawn)
Have hope, young one
You’ve arrived
Look now, its dawn
We survived
Believe, blue eyes, believe
Believe, blue eyes, and leave

Lathered in silver and gold
Neatly arranged in a row
I believe that I understand
Do you understand?

Save her
I shall never be
Happy again
Symbolism of the end

This moment, justifies
My motion, and why I said goodbye
I have borne a witness, to the
Rise and fall of empires

Heart come from the mind
Ill return in time
Cast in a circle
More adventure still

And I would get lost in the sound
Kingdom come down
Sagittarius
Becoming one of us

Save her
I shall never be
Happy again
Symbolism
Of a man

It is, it is, dawn
It is, it is done
