Track Name: I'm Not A Question... I'm A Man
Even the deepest caves have a bottom,
It's somewhere to hide,But you can't stay forever,
Without losing peace of mind.

Your thoughts are escaping.
Just seal up the wound.
It'll never heal that way.
It'll never feel the same again.

I'm close to finding out what you really are.
Travelling through doors.
Bending these bars.
Forget what you've heard.
You've seen it all.
(You've seen it all)

You appear in all of my dreams; all of my scenes,
So how could you be at my door wanting more?

Are we to believe that this wooden stage
Will hold all of our weight with such small hands?
(With such small hands)

"Is this the way we'll always be? Is this the way we'll always sing?"

Safety is not guaranteed when you're dealing with me...
Or any person really.
Don't wear your heart on your sleeve,
Keep it in a cave,
Locked away.
Track Name: Severance
Oh , Someone saw you wandering down the avenue,
Plastered drunk and spewing nonsense about nothing.
Can't even hold it on your own

Well I shrug it off and sigh,
Some people aren't meant to have purpose of lives.
We're all just severed souls,
Some just like to think that they're whole.

Look at you falling to the sea,
This is what you call your heaven.

I'll paint you a picture of a tragedy.
Started out slow and sweet,
Of a bond that can't be beat,
But wore down through the years,
From all the shitty situations,
False pretenses,
And the tears.

Well you won't find a way,
to make it the same as before.
You're on track to die alone,
and there's nothing I can do,
but watch you.

And as crazy as this seems,
you left me with these hellish dreams.
And I can't help feeling no shame in saying,
"I'm glad. I'm glad to see you in this pain."

And as crazy as this seems,
you left me with these hellish dreams (I couldn't leave).
And I can't help feeling no, fucking shame
in saying, "I'm glad. I'm glad to see you in this pain."
Track Name: Like Drowning
I am the devil.
I am the weight on my damn shoulders,
Providing the source of all my misfortunes.
You took all of it, but I did tenfold.

Pour me a stiff one I really need it now.

Drinking to forget all of my problems but you wouldn't get it...
'Cause you're the reason I drink to forget.

You appear in all my dreams, all my scenes...
You've died once before,
So how could you be at my door wanting more?
You appear in all my dreams, all my scenes
so how could you be at my door wanting more?

Drinking to forget all of my problems but you wouldn't get it...
'Cause you're the reason I drink to forget.

Replenishing my empty glass,
Will never change the fact that we're separate minds.
As my memory gets hazy, you'll think that I'm crazy...
A severed soul.
Solving it first does't mean you're right.
It doesn't work the same as before.

(sing your loudest)

Sing your loudest.
Sink your teeth in.
Eat the cowards and swallow your pride
Like the words you believed in
Track Name: Prussian Roulette
"Sweet dreams, dear. Take a deep breath."

Weights that can't be lifted and legs that cannot stand.
I'll take my business elsewhere,
To a place that feels like home.

We lived in vessels that were never conceivable.
You lost your trail and I lost my head.
Yesterday's a ghost haunting our tomorrow.

*Where was the wind that swept you and how was the taste I left you?

"Sweet dreams, dear. Take a deep breath"

This land is a burden with these treasures we keep.
Now it's sinking into a deep sleep.

(Is this the way?)

Leave these days alone.
Break the pattern of bone.
Shackles and teeth of stone.
Leave these days alone.

Is this the way we'll always be?
Is this the way we'll always sing?
Is this the way we'll always speak?
Is this the way we'll always breathe?
