Track Name: Slaughter House
We’re so lost inside ourselves
We just let them take control
Easy to forget (just pretend there’s nothing wrong)

You’re the sheep, sound asleep
Slowly heading to the slaughter house
They truly love you at the slaughter house

Don’t forget to take your pills,
Work so hard to pay your bills
Feel no regret (just believe there’s nothing wrong)

You’re the sheep, sound asleep
Slowly heading to the slaughter house
They truly love you at the slaughter house

For them it’s pocket change
For us a lifetime of playing their game

We’re the sheep, sound asleep
Slowly heading to the slaughter house
They truly love us at the slaughter house
Track Name: All Inside Your Head
You know where to find me
What held you back so long?
Learn that what seems right
Can always be wrong

And I keep at my corner
While screams come back to me
Feel the air tighten all around me
Like fire to the skin

Greatness falls as we’re doubtful
And the sky turns grey instead
Why do you keep hesitating
When it’s all inside your head

You will never understand
Don’t mind ‘bout me baby
‘cause you’ll never understand these words

Yet for me it is simple
My time keeps shortening
As my feelings disappear
My soul cries crawling

All has come back to haunt me
All of us in this prison cell
Try to look back at all we’ve done
Waiting to rebel

You will never understand
Don’t mind ‘bout me baby
‘cause you’ll never understand these words

Never understand
It’s inside your head

You will never understand
Don’t mind ‘bout me baby
‘cause you’ll never understand these words
Track Name: Speechless
We’re strangers
From the land of bad seed
Sitting at the table
Where hate is dessert

We’ve been patiently waiting
Ready for anything

You left all of me speechless
So now I’m a free careless spirit
In search of blood

Listen to the memories
They’re calling you out
The voices in your head
You can’t live without

Silence, suddenly prevails
Lost inside my own fairytale

You left all of me speechless
So now I’m a free careless spirit
In search of blood
Track Name: The Moth
It’s a brand new level of torture
A heartfelt cry of shame
I don’t know what else to tell you
Just ignore this and walk away

I’m nothing, it’s nothing
It’s subjective, it’s anemic
It’s a heavily protected lie

What have we become?

Is this all we’re gonna get
I can’t bear to feel you watching me
Something we cannot reset
‘Cause deep down you really disgust me

I’m a myth, I’m sin
I’m a moth with burning wings
What a harsh way to disagree

Unnatural beauty
Sweet disillusion
Quick to burn
But slow to die

Slow to die
Track Name: More or Less
I tried to be perfect
But I couldn’t do it
It wasn’t my fault, I wasn’t built to shine

I tried to be gorgeous
I wouldn’t believe it
I kept on thinking I was less, no more could I guess I was fine

I’m a rock, never shaken,
my core never broken,
my faith kept on working,
More or less, I’ll keep hoping

I tried to see past this
But it’s hard to ignore it
It wasn’t my fault, I’m a real live person

I tried to be bigger
But I wouldn’t fit here
I couldn’t set myself to be less, no more could I guess I was right

I’m a rock, never shaken,
my core never broken,
my faith kept on working,
More or less, I’ll keep hoping

I’ll build a home inside my chest
I’ll burn all the bridges and feast on the ashes
I’ll live here forever, forever I’ll rest
Embracing the truth when everything crashes
When everything crashes

I’m a rock, never shaken,
my core never broken,
my faith kept on working,
More or less, I’ll keep hoping
Track Name: The Devil
They want to burn me at the stake
They want my ashes on the ground
My heart scattered into many pieces
My hope nowhere to be found

For a second I despair
When I see you laugh and stare
When you judge and don’t know why
Somehow that’ll pass me by

I’m the devil
Didn’t you know?
I’m the devil
I’ll make you bleed, I’ll make you grow

I’ll make you work so very hard
I’ll push you to do your best
I’ll take you where you’ve never been before
Set you aside from all the rest

For a second I’m not there
When you’re trying to compare
When you’re mean and don’t know why
Somehow that’ll pass me by

I’m the devil
Didn’t you know?
I’m the devil
I’ll make you bleed, I’ll make you grow

On the outside I’m so sweet
But inside I’m burning up
I’ll have you kneeling at my feet
Begging for a taste of my love
For a second I’m not there
When you’re trying to compare
When you’re mean and don’t know why
Somehow that’ll pass me by

I’m the devil
Didn’t you know?
I’m the devil
I’ll make you bleed, I’ll make you grow
Track Name: Redemption
Protect me, my sins are my own
Don’t tempt me, it’s all just for show
Protect me, let me be your demon
Demon human, human demon

I’m tired, but you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling
But you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling

Don’t thrill me, don’t thrill me now
Forgive me, I’m keeping my vow
Don’t thrill me, I’ve got so much to give ya, give

Please find me, I’m craving for connection
Knee deep in good intentions
So blessed, so holy, sentimental, still judgemental

I’m tired, but you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling
But you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling

Stop screaming at me, ‘cause you don’t know me
Somehow I can’t remember ever cutting you loose
See, I’m a warrior, you shouldn’t have to ask
All doubts go away by staring at my past

I’m tired, but you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling
But you already knew that
We’re looking for redemption
Inside there’s just another inexplicable feeling
Track Name: Entertainment Clown
I tried to dream on
But I couldn’t find what I was looking for
Trust came before
All the times you asked me to hold on
Sitting out there
The room brought the silence I seek to sleep
Seeing the other side
I realized the problem became deep


Who turned around
Before I could even say a word
I know it hurts
But some things can be unheard
Fear tomorrow
Can you explain what I’m doing here
Entertainment clown
On the edge of going insane

I fear that tomorrow has nothing for me
Track Name: Miles
Coincidence
I’ve tried to see beneath the light
Look for the darkness behind your smile
Deliverance
I’ve ruined my life long ago
Now it’s time to just let it go

I’ve seen what this means
I’m losing control

We’ve taken and given all
Many miles, many holes in my soul

Indifference
We chose to move on and forget
To drown the sickening sound of regret
So diligent
We put our beliefs aside
We’ll look away and romanticize

We’ve seen what this means
We’ve lost all control

We’ve taken and given all
Many miles, many holes in my soul
Track Name: Signs
Dressed all in black
You sit on the ground
Nothing to see
Nothing to be found
You hoped that your life
Had meaning somehow
You hoped you’d figured it out
By now

Neither would we ask for more
Neither would we know for sure

So close to the earth
so far from the heart
In tune with the pain
You’d felt from the start
You’re holding my hand
You’re holding it tight
You hoped we would still be here
By now

Neither would we ask for more
Neither would we know for sure

You blink as they shout
The sound turns you blind
They speak of ideals that
Are clouding your mind
You look for the words
You’re looking for signs
You hoped it would all be clear
By now

Neither would we ask for more
Neither would we know for sure
Track Name: Id
I’m sorry for the way I look
I walk, I sing, I feel
I cannot change or rearrange
This broken version of me
It’s so painful and awful to see

I’m amazed by your opinions
of all that I should do
Forget about my history
And just be born anew
While I’m trying so hard to be true

‘cause I’m not who I am
I can only imagine, what it feels to be me
‘cause I’m not who I am

Inside this shell a so called hell
Is brewing in the dark
This shadow wants to dissipate
But we both share the same fate
We will listen and still lose our faith

‘cause I’m not who I am
I can only imagine, what it feels to be me
‘cause I’m not who I am
Track Name: Rose
Nothing but a cold stone to lean on
Like a dead flower before its bloom
Old and wrecked, confused and shattered
A shadow of a brilliant gem

Rose, what are you doing now?
Don’t you know we miss you?
Know we know we really made you proud

Deceived by my growing desperation
I swore I wouldn’t let you down
I’d safe keep your colors, your crown
I’d make you survive

Rose, what are you doing now?
Don’t you know we miss you?
Know we know we really made you proud

Frightened by my own unawareness
I tried to set your fears aside
A glimpse of an image, just a moment
The life you left still full of promise

Rose, what are you doing now?
Don’t you know we miss you?
Know we know we really made you proud

Rose, what are you doing now?
Don’t you know we miss you?
Don’t you know you really made us proud?
