Track Name: Letter To God
If I can imagine it
I’ll make it to be
And whisper slowly down below
A box of secrets, which no one knows
Was lost into the ground
If it’s all unchained to the world
Well this could be murder
If it’s all gone to waste
Would relieve this burden
If we are, who we are, and will always be
Like we would be, like we could be like we should be
Never would be, never could be, never should be

Pray for sickness, pray for health
Pray to stain the body’s cells
Trapping victims in your nightmare hell
Pray for passion, soul, and grief
Pray your gods and ghosts to sleep
Trapping victims in your nightmare hell

If it’s all unchained to the world
Well this could be murder
If it’s all gone to waste
Would relieve this burden
If we are, who we are, and will always be
Like we would be, like we could be like we should be
Never would be, never could be, never should be

A letter to god, if he reads these things
A letter to go, on paper wings
A letter to god if he believes in me
Like we would be, like we could be like we should be
Never would be, never could be, never should be

If it’s all unchained to the world
Well this could be murder
If it’s all gone to waste
Would relieve this burden
If we are, who we are, and will always be
Like we would be, like we could be like we should be
Never would be, never could be, never should be

A letter to god, if he reads these things
A letter to go, on paper wings
A letter to god if he believes in me
Like we would be, like we could be like we should be
Never would be, never could be, never should be
Track Name: Lying is a Natural Defense Mechanism
The way that she sings
Brings the strength of courage in motion
The way that she screams
Finds it strange to feel this devotion

Time out the sequence you can’t understand this
Why are you sleeping alone?
Rhyme out the reasons you can’t understand this
Why are you dreaming of home?

The way that she screams
With my hands around her complacent
For all that it means
It’s the flesh I give you the bones you wear

Time out the sequence you can’t understand this
Why are you sleeping alone?
Rhyme out the reasons you can’t understand this
Why are you dreaming of home?
But you’re….
Out of time, in play, accused of sorcery
No time, infect, infused in my machine….
The way she spoke to me, I ran, from the guilt I ran
And when she woke with me I ran, from the guilt I ran
From the guilt I ran, from the guilt….

Give me sunshine, give me rain, give me subjects for the pain
And do we know when we’ll belong

From the guilt I ran…

Give me sunshine, give me rain, give me subjects for the pain
And do we know when we’ll belong
Track Name: There's No Such Thing As Ghosts
The water turns the wheel, which drains the life
Accustom barriers to feed this diet
His pulse isn’t giving any sign
But rest assured, we’ll be just fine

All we have is a lifetime wishing to change
All we have is a lifetime wish it away
All we have is a lifetime, we hope and wait for the right time
There’s no such thing as the ghosts that live in your place

The worst is over
You’ll burn in sulfur
The worst is over….

No compassion, no mistakes, no regrets one foot in the grave
Acquiesce and take account, of what you’ve done

All we have is a lifetime wishing to change
All we have is a lifetime wish it away
All we have is a lifetime, we hope and wait for the right time
There’s no such thing as the ghosts that live in your place

There’s no such thing as ghosts…

All we have is a lifetime wishing to change
All we have is a lifetime wish it away
All we have is a lifetime, we hope and wait for the right time
There’s no such thing as the ghosts that live in your place

There’s no such thing as ghosts…
Track Name: Nothing At All
You’re feeling inspired, with social esteem
You hate your life away
And pick up the pieces, the scattered remains
Then hope to hear you say…

Betray the truth, I overcome
Inflicting whispers, one by one
When all that we know is…

That hope and dreams are for nothing at all
Would fate reveal to us (something is wrong)
That life it seems is a meaningless crawl
And words revealed to us (mean nothing at all)

There goes your worry; there goes the strength of dignity
I hold the iron weight
No running on empty, no path to the streets laid clear
I hold the iron weight

Betray the truth, I overcome
Inflicting whispers, one by one
When all that we know is…

That hope and dreams are for nothing at all
Would fate reveal to us (something is wrong)
That life it seems is a meaningless crawl
And words revealed to us (mean nothing at all)

NOTHING AT ALL

That hope and dreams are for nothing at all
Would fate reveal to us (something is wrong)
That life it seems is a meaningless crawl
And words revealed to us (mean nothing at all)

Hope and dreams are for (nothing at all)
Life it seems is for (nothing at all)
Hope and dreams are for (nothing at all)
Life it seems is for (nothing at all)
Track Name: Oh...You'll Remember Me
He told the story
He told it right
Enrich the virtue
The child will beg for his life

I have no mercy
I have no choice
Lay down your sword, boy
My name is a powerful voice

I swear my soul to butane (beauty)
I tear your soul to tiny pieces

You wear it well
The pride on your shoulder
Don’t turn away from me
My bidding’s not over
“You killed my father…
Was cut from a blade”
Oh you’ll remember,
Oh you will remember my name!

I swear my soul to butane (beauty)
I tear your soul to tiny pieces
Another taste, another time
Oh you will remember for the rest of your life

These scars I leave on your cheek will remind you (of me)
So far I need not repeat that I’m kind too

Then walk away, and see me smile
As the sun lays down oh you’ll remember….

I swear my soul to butane (beauty)
I tear your soul to tiny pieces
Another taste, another time
Oh you will remember for the rest of your life
I swear my soul to butane (beauty)
I tear your soul to tiny pieces
Another taste, another time
Oh you will remember for the rest of your life
