Track Name: Fractal
A thousand miles or more away
And I can feel the pull through the earth
The frozen water breaks against the shore
And the cold sun curls and births

We're growing older by the day
But we all make the same mistakes
And we can't break this cycle
We'll never feel safe in this place

We built it higher than the stars
But it was never going to last
The future's better than the past
The future's better than the past
Track Name: Stop
Characterise me by a total lack of faith
But it all comes down to the world we make
And you promised things get better
And you had laughed at all my
Failed attempts to change the shapes
And verified all my mistakes

And I could pick up all the pieces at my feet
But I know what I want
Isn't what we need
And it's a shame I lost the bet
That held the key to all the
Problems I had yet to meet
That tore my heart out in the street

Please close your eyes
And free your mind
The future isn't up to them
It's not for our heads to decide
I saw a lake of fire below me
Open wide
And heard the sounds of burning souls
And laughter of the cruel divine

If this is it there is incentive to survive
To live each day as though we're not
Afraid to cross that line
You are the first and last
And colour in the night
And now we have a job to do
And not we have to clear our minds
Track Name: ANGEL//\\DEMONS
You lost your wings, didn't you
And we can't go home
We know we have to see this through
And you don't know how strong you are, your gravity
Or just how much you've changed me

It's getting cold
And there's no more time to run amok
But I hope some day we can cross the sea
And change our luck
And I don't know how the stars align
But I still believe
The world's not the only place to see
And I won't stop till it's falling down around me

But please smile
Things will never stay the same
For long
And we've woken up the beast
Who'll purge
All the ghosts that haunt your house at night my dear

They're vaporous but don't know
They ask all the wrong questions
And their hearts beat slow
But in the end the background's not the worst place to be

So burn this fucking town down
And let 'em know
It's time to be a hazard
To make a show
And if you can't break the ceilng with the ones you love
Then it's just not good enough
No it's just not good enough

But please smile
Things will never stay the same
For long
And we've woken up the beast
Who'll purge
All the ghosts that haunt your house at night my dear

And hold on
I hope you realise how much
You're worth
Cos you're just working yourself
To death
And I know one day the fog will clear my love

Do you remember when you were young
And didn't care to see
And all our hiding places are gone
We buried them too deep

We broke the stone in half
And cut ourselves a different path
The time has more than passed
The truth is better than we can class

The demons won't come back again
We found ourselves and we found our friends
The demons won't come back again
We found ourselves and we found our friends
Track Name: Fight
The time has come to stand our ground
And choose to die as one
We've lived in fear for
Far too long

They are not our Gods now
They are not our Gods now

And we won't bend
We'll ascend
From this earth
We may die tonight
If we don't fight
What do we deserve

It's taken us too long to grow
And realise our worth
We'll bury all our friends under
The broken salted earth because

They are not our Gods now
They are not our Gods now

And we won't bend
We'll ascend
From this earth
We may die tonight
If we don't fight
What do we deserve
Track Name: (Glass Houses)
We are talking through glass houses
It's too late now to fight these thousands
They will dance upon our graves
And drive their children to their fates
Track Name: Synthesis
They always hide in plain sight
Laughing behind our backs
Moving furniture and mixing cocktails
And threatening our habitats
A group of vultures picking off
The scattered flesh from our hands
Us never rising to temptation
And never meeting their demands

And what am I supposed to fear
It's just a million other donkeys
Spitting verse in my ear
They won't hear
And they're running out of time

I can see
A way out of here
It's time to fight
Or grow old in fear
I've crossed the void
And seen the truth
They hide behind the noise
It's falling fast
This arrogance will never last

This city sleeps fifteen hours a day
And it just uses and abuses
Though it doesn't know your name
And it's breaking my spirit
And it's making me weak
And all the people looking up
Just can't hide their relief

And as I sit trapped in this hole
You're my reason to stand up
You're the light in my soul
And you hold
My salvation in your hands

I can see
A way out of here
It's time to fight
Or grow old in fear
I've crossed the void
And seen the truth
They hide behind the noise
It's falling fast
This arrogance will never last
Track Name: Fools
How long will we have to wait
My love
They've taken everything apart
The noise has vanished from the decks
Above
The fire's vanished from the hearth

And I want to do what I want
Do what I want
But I'm just hamstrung by my mistakes
I feel the strings pulling me up
From above
And I can't anchor in this place

And are we fools to suffer twice
And dream of better things to come
The dark corners of this planet have opened wide
As all our friendships start to numb

And we're still standing on this stupid razor's edge
It came to head when I had finally found a real voice
And we can take our time and know that things will soon get better
And I had learned to make a real choice
Track Name: Smile
Cold hands don't make cold hearts
This year will end and we can try to make a different start

I'm tired of waiting for time to bend
I have to see you smile again

And you're more wonderful than you know
And I don't want to stand
And watch this river overflow
We are the faces in the fire every night
And they can't protect us from
The bitter winter's burning light

I'm tired of waiting for time to bend
I have to see you smile again
I'm ready to accept my fate
But I will take my chance and wait
(And watch the sun shine)
Track Name: The Black Mist Chased Us
It came faster than we ever prepared for
As we took the roads we used to know
Slowing traffic and mist
That blocked the road from sight
As it rose above the snow

This is the beginning of calm oblivion
And our only choice is to leave
Up the slopes that lead away from this
Darkness we live in
Although we don't know where they lead

But I don't mind
I don't mind
I'll do what it takes to make you feel alive
No I don'd mind
I don't mind
I'll do what it takes to make you feel alive

And as we ran towards the red sky
I saw the mouth of hell begin to open up
The land below was gone from sight
Obscured by hordes of souls
Just waiting to erupt

The black mist chased us ever higher
Until I reached the peak
Of intersecting space
And I ascended from the fire
To find a way to break
The curse upon this place

This is the end of everything we've tried
To hold onto for so long
And things will never be the same again
If we accept that we are
Not where we belong to be or want to be
We will see that this is not ours to defend

But I don't mind
I don't mind
I'll do what it takes to make you feel alive
No I don'd mind
I don't mind
I'll do what it takes to make you feel alive

Just dive
And leave your form to rise above the tides
Hold on
We can't go back, we never did belong
Ascend
And break the walls that hide us from our end
Survive
We'll understand the truth when we arrive
Track Name: Catharsis
We're churning out the same old shit
And our emotions are overrated
And as I walk into this abyss
I just don't care enough to stay now

We are the violence embodied in sore flesh
We are the others who deserved respect
And we will drink while it collapses
We will drink while it collapses now

These spinning tops have no bottom that we know of
I'm so tired of working out what it means
There's too much ahead to comprehend
Let's antagonise all the people that we meet
That we meet

This is not the end we wanted
This is not the end we wanted
This is not the end I wanted
This is not the end I wanted

We've only got our inhumanity left
We have to stop making any real sense
This is not the end we wanted
No this is not the end we wanted now
Track Name: Closure
I can't see past this wall
Of vacant empty tones
I need a place to lay my head
And rest my bones
We are the last remaining
Circuits on this board
And we know the only way to face
Is never that straightforward

We'll hold a funeral
For all the souls we find
And help them find their way
To scare the souless minds
And we may ne ver understand
What happened here
Because all the final answers
Always seem so insincere

And as the spinning plates
Push mountains to the sky
They'll never know we were
The first to paint the lines
It's not too late to try to
Rearrange our fate
But we're growing older by the day
And make the same mistakes

All of our interactions come to little worth
If we can't keep ourselves
From looking at the broken earth
This is an apocalpyse of the smallest start
And we will anger all these angry minds
And hardened hearts

Please don't waste your time now darling
They are tired and they are starving
Close the door on all we know
And let our brightest colours flow
