Track Name: And Their Lungs Were Filled With Death (Dynasty)
steam rises, trading blood for a higher place
fill your lungs with sin boys, we'll decide our fate.
sift through borrowed ashes
make sense of it
sift through borrowed ashes
make sense of it all
build for something more than this
build for something more than this wasteland
with unopened eyes on the forgotten we'll come through the front door
a pilfered kingdom
distrupted ascention breeds our dissension
hollowed lines are crossed
for but the glory of a new breed, the new king.
fill your lungs with sin boys, we'll decide our fate.
I am awakened.
Track Name: Mademoiselle X (II)
no one makes it out alive
walking among ghosts
they look right past me
living in god's blind spot
decieve this artificial existence
slip the pills under your tongue
from the tank you seem like just another specimen
breathe deep. fall asleep.
branded a loose end
the light comes for me
no sleep. no retreat.
a life lays on the floor bleeding out
ive sacrificed everything for this
thats not a still life down there
but it may as well be
angels always regrow their wings
there's no quality of life
Is this hell? Is this purgatory?
Remind me. I forgot to breathe.
Bury me.
They forgot to bury me.
The solution came to me.
It must be a dream
A vicious dream.
There's no one to answer for this.
Awaken me on the other side.
No one makes it out alive.
slip the pills under your tongue
from the tank you seem like just another specimen
breathe deep. fall asleep.
Is this hell? Is this purgatory?
Remind me. I forgot to breathe.
Track Name: Eve (Reborn)
SHE CRAWLS OVER MY SKIN
GAZE SECURES ME REASSURING THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE BEEN MISSING
IS THIS LIFE BEGGING AT THE DOOR?

AND THOUGH I THOUGHT THE SUN HAD SET ON THIS ISLAND FOR THE LAST TIME
LIGHT FOUND A WAY.

HELP ME BELIEVE THAT THESE THOUGHTS WON'T BURY ME x2

THIS HOPE CHOKES THE LIFE FROM ME
FUNNY IT'S ONLY AT THE CUSP OF DEATH THAT ONLY NOW WE REALIZE JUST HOW MUCH WE ARE ALIVE

THE BURDEN OF YOUR EYES MEETING MINE
RESTS ON MY HEART LIKE A HOT COAL

OH THE HERESY IN THIS SWEET TASTE
FREEDOM HAS ITS PRICE
AND LOVE IS PAID IN TWO'S
HOLD YOUR MARTYRS TO THEIR THROAT
AND BEG FOR SWEET DELIVERANCE

PROMISES KISS THE SKY GOODBYE, DANCING IN THEIR SMOKE
SURROUNDED BY THE LIES I'VE TOLD MYSELF
I KNOW I'VE MADE IT HOME

EVEN BETRAYED I TEAR IN TWO, NOT FOR THE FLESH, BUT FOR THE FLAMES, FOR BUT A FLEETING MOMENT

IF I EVER HAD A SOUL
I'D TRADE IT ALL AWAY
FOR ONE MORE DAY
JUST ONE MOMENT
FOR ONE MORE DAY

ERASED HER
DISCARDED WE'RE ALL GOING TO PAY

DISTRACT ME FROM THE SILENCE OF THE FALLEN SIREN
BATHE ME IN THE FIRE, DRAG WHAT'S LEFT OF ME DOWN THE ROAD
DON'T GO
DON'T LEAVE

SURRENDER YOUR BODY, BUT NEVER YOUR MIND
DON'T GO
DON'T LEAVE

SURRENDER YOUR BODY
Track Name: This is Not the End (Threnody)
This is not the end.
Wake up.
Are we heaven sent?
Or are these scars washed away when we die?
So who will atone?
Who will admit it's all been for nothing?
And will that same man rise upon the bones of the sacrificed, and find a path home?
I've worlds like these crash and burn.
And no ones made it out alive
Omnipotence be damned.
Whether you worship your pockets or the sky, we forget to cherish the times.
The face of emerald dead planet versus the rotting face of an existence that flourshes is still the greatest question.
We're still doomed
We're still missing the picture
Our dirt castle keeps us warm
Our back alley love keeps us sane
we were never meant for mainstream fame
Just make it to tomorrow
And only then can we ask for more.
We're still doomed.
We're still missing the picture.
This is not the end.
