Track Name: Unfamiliar
We have some damage control to do
One hundred hurricanes to clean up after
Just you wait

Wooden legs will do you no good
When you try to walk on flames
They will burn your substitutions and
Touch your solid skin

You can look back and
See the wrongs made in your trail
Creeping up your veins and
Swimming through you

And the flames are rising

You're sweet on my tongue but
Bitter at the back of my throat
I will swallow my pride
In a hypocritical stance

Go down to the lake and
Wash the poison off your skin and
Try to make yourself
Clean again
Track Name: Brink
Against a grey lit sky
My body aches
Constant noise to break my spirit
It won't take much

This is the tipping point
For her the breaking point

Now the night is setting in
It's like having memories
That I can see through
My eyes won't keep straight
Do you want proof?

This is the tipping point
For her the breaking point

Consider me your enemy
There's no way you'll come back from this

This is the tipping point
For her the breaking point
Track Name: Lay To Ruin
Pack your suitcase with memories
Wrap them carefully
So they don't break

Place them in a bag
Ready to hold all the problems you have
New faces new people
They won't mean a thing

You're stuck inside your mind
Hot sand walls and twisted trees
Will make you suffer

She says please won't you save me
My problems are eating my insides
I've got my whole life in the making
Her grip slips
As she falls she cries out

If you try to help my dilemmas again
I will take you with me

Fights and arguments will do you no good
It's like I'm floating on
A cloud of black air
That tries to steal my breath

She says please won't you save me
My problems are eating my insides
I've got my whole life in the making
Her grip slips
As she falls she cries out

One more fucking time
I god damn dare you
I will take you with me
Track Name: Descent
This is it
It's been creeping for a long time
Once I'm gone all you'll have is a rotting crown
No gold or glory just one less life

As I close my eyes
All I can see is galaxies
As I close my eyes
All I can see are frozen memories

This is it
The time has almost come
With no regret I'm drifting slowly down
Into insanity

Oh no
My descent is colourful
Pushing past the unknown

This is it
The time has almost come
With no regrets I'm drifting slowly
Down into insanity

Hands of smoke they
Won't let go of me

Oh no
My descent is colourful
Pushing past the unknown

Oh no
My descent is colourful
All of my stitches come undone

Let's change my shape and
Change my face
Let's mould my personality
Into a breathing stone
Until the water beckons me
Track Name: Deja Senti
It's cold
I can feel the snow
My senses are failing me
I hear bells and haunting tones

Shots of wind cut my skin
No noise follows

My conscience is working fine
How would I know?

You will learn how hard
This endeavour will be
After it happens
You can't take it back

I can feel where my skin ends
And the water begins
Silky fabrics flow
Dancing in waves below

Shots of wind cut my skin
No noise follows

My conscience is working fine
How would I know?
Cascades of white fill my lungs
With frozen air

I'm floating deep down
As orbs like mirrors
Kiss oxygen goodbye

So cold
A gentle breeze
Will send me numb

There's no more air
Nothing I can grasp down here
Your poison words
Can't swim this deep
They can't get to me
As I'm floating deep down

My conscience is working fine
How would I know?

There is no revenge
So complete as forgiveness
I'm finally gone
The water I feel no more

My last breath fails
The water I feel no more
It's cold outside
I can't feel the snow anymore
