Track Name: A Dark Chapter In Our History
In the underworld, in your dark empire We were apathetic at the end of time.
In violent rebirth, in the halo fire, She breathed anesthetic in the streets at night.

When the lights appeared we were days away, And these sympathetic notes rung out all day.
And the cadence swelled, it would rise and fade.
In the final hours she danced a slow decay.

I spilled her disco blood...

And the ancient world, with their heads on fire
Cast this fate upon us, there's no end in sight.
With her passive birth 'neath the golden spires
We ignored the presence of an afterlife.

When the lights appeared we were days away,
We were systematically picked out and changed.
And no voice was heard through the endless days.
Were we ever here on this abandoned stage?

I spilled her disco blood...

When the lights went out all the angels cried
At the sun, pathetic, hanging in the sky.
Then his corpse returned at the end of time.
It was so traumatic and no one survived.

Though we had the cure, we were days away.
It was alphabetic, like the beta strain.
Looking insincere with her face so white,
She emerged undead, and darkness stung her eyes.

I spilled her disco blood...

We feel the explosion, the sky is the limit.
It's hurling towards us, it breaks through the atmosphere.
Instantly we're frozen, the sky is the limit.
Her blood is upon us, it floods through the atmosphere.

We feel the explosion, the sky is the limit.
It's hurling towards us, it breaks through the atmosphere.
Instantly we're frozen, the sky is the limit.
Her blood is upon us, it floods through the atmosphere, and…
Track Name: Ana & Mia
Woke up all alone today with my friends Ana & Mia.
Didn't have a lot of words to say, 'til the mirror said "I wouldn't wanna be ya."
Left dreams of youth behind, playing in the cool breeze, swaying in the sunlight.
All scenes are falsified and someday we'll find peace of mind.

Sat up in my bed today with my friends Ana & Mia.
They'd been with me in an awful stage, now they're left here, just judging my freedom.
They can't be satisfied 'til there's nothing in me, 'til the hunger subsides.
All data falsified, no yesterdays will be here tonight.I can't survive this test of fate. I keep passing out, I feel the strength subside.
Her and I sat there swaying to the bassline, sickened by the words
That I justified in this refrain. I feel her in my veins, I sense the lithe
Oblique disguise. I can't awake, I'm lost inside.

Need a little help today, asked my friends Ana & Mia.
So I told 'em that I wouldn't break. I feel weak, it's like an anesthesia.
In the fall I can survive, cut off all the intake, focus on the outside.
And this all is no fault of mine, too strong to live but too weak to die.

Went out in the world today with my friends Ana & Mia.
Walking helpless in a thoughtless haze Through the park where the whole world gets to see ya.
This state personified; Mia in my stomach and Ana in my eyes,
But I'm only the face behind. I face away, I face the divide.

How sad am I? This self-restraint is medicine that I need to survive.
Her and I sat there praying to a false god, deadly thin but still alive.
And when I die what will remain? Just traces of a wasted void that I filled with lies. I can't awake, I'm lost inside.
Track Name: I'm Sorry (So Sorry)
I feel it creep up under the surface. What is its purpose and why does it all break down?
Now I live like there's no tomorrow. I'm pierced by an arrow, it's putting me in the ground.

You came a long way to be just faking. Does it haunt you now?
Now your real purpose is surfacing. Does it haunt you now?

You set a fire like there's no tomorrow,
So burn this to the ground before you go.
You wanna fake it but it's all that we are though.
There's never tomorrow, but none of that means anything.

I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I couldn't feel the earth, I couldn't battle it this way.
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I couldn't feel the earth, I couldn't get out of it this way.
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I couldn't feel the earth, I couldn't battle it this way.
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I couldn't feel the earth, I couldn't channel strength, just regret.

Here you come to make me an offer.
What is it all worth and what would you do for it?
I'm sorry if my satire confused you.
It's like I abused you, but your hurt is counterfeit.

You came a long way just to face nothing. Does it haunt you now?
You found your real heart and it's surfacing. Does it haunt you now?

I'm sorry but I just can't feel the earth these days...
Track Name: She's Exactly The Kind Of Broken I Need
Your life on movie screens; your life with her.
Your life in memories; your life with her.
Your life without a lead; your life with her.
She is amphetamine, you're drawn to her.

Your life in magazines; your life with her.
Your life seen through a dream; your life with her.
Your life's mythology; your life with her.
She is the prophecy, you came to her.

Her familiar eyes always haunting me, and I feel her anguish and her need.
Try to summon God, beg for something real. Has to cut her thighs to know she feels.
And her hazel eyes always follow me, always see into my inner being.
My sardonic heart, she's corrupted me. She's the kind of broken that I need.

Life burned in effigy; your life with her.
This vague eternity; your life with her.
You vow to never leave your life with her.
She came from darker dreams, you follow her.

Your life in echoed screams; your life with her.
Your life in terror themes; your life with her.
Your life's simplicity; your life with her.
She's this imperfect being, and you need her.

Her familiar eyes always haunting me. Try to feel her anguish and her need.
Try to summon God, beg for something real, has to cut her thighs to show how she feels.
And her hazel eyes always follow me, always see into my darkest dreams.
My sardonic heart, she's corrupted me. She's exactly the broken that I need.
Track Name: What Are You Waiting For?
And in the end we were turned, our eyes locked together,
And though we burned, it felt like forever, yeah.
The universe had a dream, we called it tomorrow.
It filled with joy, abandon, and sorrow, yeah.
This pulsing blood flowed between us, still like a photo,
And in the night we danced, letting go, oh yeah.
Now in our hollowest dreams we walk hands together.
Our dark romance is life at its center, yeah.

What are you waiting for? Now all the eyes just follow you.
What are you waiting for? The embers of your fading youth?
What are you waiting for? You fill the desire in me.
What are you waiting for? Just keep it together.
I feel you unaware, I'm coming up for air.
And do we disagree? No, you're pieces of me.
So what are you waiting for?

I still remember the tears that held us together,
They're blurred by years but I still remember, yeah.
And in your pulse I can feel the beat of tomorrow.
That feeling I couldn't buy, steal, or borrow, yeah.
This crushing flood of the years we face in a coma
May take us down but we won't let go, oh yeah.
And still our hollowest dreams propel us together.
This emptiness is our world forever, yeah.
Track Name: Icons
Anna, I can see you looking right through me.
The reflected lights of synthesizers bathe you in their glow.
I said, Anna, it's almost like you never knew me,
But you see what you want to see when you choose what to be shown.
I said, Anna, why are you the judge and the jury?
It's sometimes like I'm hypnotized to believe in you alone.
I said, Anna, I know that you intended to prove it to me.
You were never better than a dramatic movie; a beautiful echo.

How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
All these idols lined up in rows of beauty.
How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
How did I forget? Now you're foreign to me.
All these idols lined up and you're a beautiful mess.

Anna, for years I've tried to channel you through me,
To paint your life in synthesizers; a portrait in dark tones.
I said, Anna, destruction is a thing of beauty.
You adore the gorgeous pageantry, but destroy it with sorrow.
I said, Anna, why are you forgetting what you mean?
One might think you're bound by confidence, but you dream of letting go.
I said, Anna, what the fuck is your body doing to me?
It's like another hit of a drug that I need,
I think I've lost control.
Track Name: Unaffectionate Mistress
You give me love but always at a distance.
You want to be my unaffectionate mistress.
I get nowhere with your heart of resistance.
You want to be my unaffectionate mistress.
I give it up and you give me indifference.
You want to be my unaffectionate mistress.
I carry on through this hopeless existence.
You want to be my unaffectionate mistress now.

The give and the take, it's one and the same
If you put it off until something breaks.
Before it can start, I feel it depart,
That moment of having you on my arm.
And so let it be, this horror in me
Thinking there's something that I can't see.
We've been here a while, and I make you smile.
But if you want love, you don't feel mine.

In my leap of faith, you want to escape.
You just pass it off like it's something vague
Compared to the start, we're further apart.
That feeling of sinking is all my heart.
What could it be you wanted in me?
It must have been something that I can't see.
I thought that you might feel it inside
But you'll never know what it feels like.

And I thought we were searching for This hopeless thing that we can't find.
I can only think why did I...?

Then finally when you're blithe and you're listless
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
You'll show me love but you'll feel my resistance,
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
Your open arms will be met with disinterest.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
You'll realize it's too late and you've missed this.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
You'll give me love, and I'll give you resistance.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
You'll get nowhere now despite your persistence.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
You'll feel my touch and its trembling indifference.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress.
The years will haunt you, someday you will miss this.
I'm gonna be your unaffectionate mistress now.
Track Name: Rouge
Rouge, you're my dystopian muse.
For everything that we've used, we know we're destined to lose.
Rouge, your body pale and bruised.
I see these fragments of gloom in everything that we do.

She's just standing on the line but her loneliness is the 1980s.
She goes down the back stair, passing always out of sight.
She's just standing on the line, but it's always 1987.
She goes down the back stair, passing over out of sight.

She's a wolf in a sheep's disguise.
Yeah, she's a wolf in a sheep's disguise.
I know this dangerous roller-coaster inevitably ends in my demise,
But her universe beckons me to go for one final ride.

Rouge, my sweet seductress of youth.
I know you're feeling it too, I wanna feel it with you.
Rouge, so sexually confused.
In darkness you will find truth. You've got nothing left to lose. She's just standing on the line in the loneliness of the 1980s.
She goes down the back stair, passing always out of sight.
She's just standing on the line in a hopeless 1980s heaven.She goes down the back stairs, passing over out of sight.
Track Name: We Don't Want To Be Your Lovers
There's a number carved upon us and it's 666.
And they tell us 'son we want you' and we're like, 'fuck this'.
There's an emptiness inside us like we don't exist
And we don't wanna be your lovers...

Every night we're fading and we don't know why,
With our signal getting weaker and our eyes shut tight.
We're his horrible creations and we're dead inside
And we don't wanna be your lovers...

Got back to the party, I felt alone there without you, I don't know why.
'Cuz I love nobody and I feel nothing, yet I shiver inside.
Went back to the party. Your scent is still on me although days go by.
But I am nobody and I don't want to become one of the parasites.

There's a number waiting for us and it's 666,
And although we're barely conscious we can scream ‘fuck this!’
We're indoctrinated but not easily convinced
And we don't wanna be your lovers...

Every night we wake up, leave our dreams behind,And the void in us gets bigger as the fear subsides.
It’s a deafening invasion, but we still can fight it.
We don't wanna be your lovers...
Track Name: Heathen Girl
They fucked with her...

Heathen girl, let it fall like a vision of solitude.
Heathen girl, let it slip to the back of your mind.
Your heart knows nothing, your head can envision it all for you.
You've burned those bridges, but how they slip through at night.

And now I feel you with me all the time;
A million voices filled with hate.

Heathen girl in a calm unfamiliar solitude.
Heathen girl in the world where her spirit arrived.
Your heart knows nothing, your head can't forgive what was done to you.
They’ve burned their witches, they'll never set it all right.

And now your voice it haunts me all the time.
I still feel your suffering and pain.
Track Name: Chrysalis
A chrysalis of darkness is deep within your soul.
This monolith is conscious in exile of control.
This chrysalis is timeless, its name is forged in pain.
Oblivious to violence through all these passing days.

Blue, I see these shades of blue
Through disoriented you.
And who paints only shades of blue?
The truth is sometimes maybe I do.

A chrysalis of darkness is waiting to be found.
My lioness, you're timeless but dead upon the ground.
This chrysalis breeds tyrants and their electronic souls.
The vision ends, I'm conscious but am I in control?
Track Name: Mourn
I was tired of wishing you'd show. I walked home.
You used to live in that house up the road. And so it goes...
There I stood in the streetlight’s dim glow, my eyes closed
And fists clenched in the blistering snow. I can't let you go.

I was told that the sadness won't grow.But I know there's no stopping this war in my soul. How could I though?
All my hope was effectively blown on a ghost.
I feel stupid and screwed up and torn apart, and I let you go.

Now there's nothing but sitting alone; that feeling of losing control.
Why do we have to let go? Why do we have to let go?
And the memories can't make us whole. These words doing nothing, I know.
Why do we have to let go? Why do we have to let go?

I can still hear your voice on the phone, please don't go.
And it fills up my head and echoes ‘til I could explode.
But it builds our reflections so slow, and they grow
Like these mirrors of us in a row. I can't cope.

It was barely light out, you were stoned. We walked home.
You still lived in that house up the road. How could I know?
There was something about your dark tone.
I let go of your hand, you departed,
One last farewell and I should have known.
Track Name: The Last Ones To Suffer
I feel insane, these blasé mortals seem to relieve pain With hollow substitutes for deep meaning. I can't ignore these things, just count the ways that give into them.

Why am I awake? Why am I awake?
To keep your dreams at bay; an equilibrium.
Why am I awake? Why am I awake?
My child, a calm awaits, you just can't see it yet.

We were the last ones to suffer, we embraced the feeling.
We were the last ones to suffer, this has to begin again.

The world is grey. With every breath the world shall know my pain; My infinite regress. There's more to say. I curse my words for premature escape, I've barely started yet.

Why am I awake? Why am I awake?
To keep your dreams at bay, a pretense, I confess.
Why am I awake? Why am I awake?
My child, a calm awaits, it's just not meant for us.

We were the last ones to suffer, we embraced the feeling.
We were the last ones to suffer, it gave us some meaning.
We were the last ones to suffer, to know of the feeling.
We were the last ones to suffer, it's only the beginning.
Track Name: Callie
There's love in your eyes, Callie.
I know it's not meant for me.
But down in your thighs, Callie,
A dark paradise completes me.
I know it's not right, Callie.
I know it's not meant to be.
But somewhere inside, Callie,
I secretly hope that you feel me.
There in the ambiance of the summer
You're right in front of me.
Even when your hands pause to recover,
You're writhing underneath.
And in the meaningless L.A. summer
You lie in front of me.
Lost in the deepest bliss, you discover
Yourself within your need.

There's depth in your eyes, Callie,
It feels like you're next to me.
Beware what you find, Callie,
For you might not like what you see.
With your body tied, Callie
I might just forget to breathe.
You need no disguise, Callie,
Just bare your insides. God, I feel weak.

You stare in the slow heat death of the summer,
This lithe destructive being.
Just pull back the layers to gently uncover
You writhing underneath.
Lost in the vanity fix of the summer,
You smile from in the screen.
I bow to the fearless lips I discover
Spread wide in front of me.
Track Name: Living In A Coma
You come with a heart of fire. You feel it in your veins every single night.
Take me for the way that I really am, couldn't feel the soul of another man.
I can't control the things that I'll never be. This is my at-long-last apology.
Feel it in your heart, there is no mistake. You hear it in my voice but we can't awake
‘Cause we are living in a coma...

And you've found what you can't deny. You feel it come in waves and it's so divine.
You feel it in the way I already am; implanted in our hearts from the dawn of man.
Can you sense that this is a memory? I see it in the light set in front of me.
We're heading to the dawn like there's no escape. We needn't waste our words on the vows we take, ‘cause we are living in a coma...

And it's exile. Wide awake, but we are inside a realm that we can only deny.
Our presence only is an archive.
Oh, but I know one day I will come to know our real fate.
Oh, and I know hearts break, but I only live to fade to death.

You come with your heart on fire. You feel me lie awake every single night,
Resigning to the way that I really am. I couldn’t play the role of another man.
It's like we speak a language that I can't read. You've never lost control like you do with me.
I tell it to my heart, there is no mistake. We'll never be apart but we can't awake.
Said we are living in a coma...

And you found what you can't deny. You feel it come in waves, spinning out of time.
Implanted in way the I already am is dim light tracing us from the dawn of man.
I start to see the shapes of a memory encircled in lights set front of me.
We walk, we never run, there is no escape. What's shattered in this world couldn't ever break, when we are living in a coma...
