DEATH BLOWS IN LIKE A COLD BREEZE / WRAPPED IN THE CLOAK OF NIGHT / AND OCCUPIES MY MIND / IT’S NOT A COMFORTING ROUTINE / BUT IN THE YEARS THAT MARK MY LIFE / DEATH BLOWS IN LIKE A COLD BREEZE / DEATH TAKES HOLD FROM TIME TO TIME / YES / THERE’S LIFE BLOOMING AROUND ME / POLLEN ON THE WIND / PROOF THERE’S STARTS AS WELL AS ENDS / BUT WHEN IT’S DEATH TALKING LOUDLY / SITTING THERE BEHIND MY EYES / DEATH BECOMES COMPANY / DEATH TAKES HOLD FROM TIME TO TIME / FIND ME STANDING AT THE CORNER OF THE OCEAN / BREATHING IN WHAT’S LIKE A COLD ACCUMULATION / STARING OVER ALL THE WATERS OF THE EARTH AND FILLING UP WITH DARKNESS AND EVAPORATING / DEATH BLOWS IN LIKE A COLD BREEZE / TAKES HOLD IN THE CORNERS OF MY MIND / DEATH TAKES HOLD FROM TIME TO TIME
Track Name: Psychic Vampires
TAKE YOUR WORDS OUT OF MY HEAD / YOUR VERSION OF THE TRUTH HAS IT’S PLACE / I’M SURE / BUT GIVE ME MY DISCRETION / AND I’VE COME TO NOTICE YOU MANIPULATE THE UNRESOLVED / MY TRUTH IS CALLED INTERNALLY TO QUESTION / YOU TOOK THE HEART FROM WHAT I SAID / TRIED TO DEFLATE ME / USING WORDS TO MINIMIZE WHAT CUTS THROUGH YOUR DEFENSES / BUT I KNOW THE SHAPE AND SIZE OF MY INTENTIONS / REALIZE THERE’S MANY SIDES TO ANY TRUE DISCUSSION / AND HAUNTED AS YOU ARE BY YOUR CONSTRUCTION / YOU HUNGER FOR ANOTHER’S PIECE OF MIND / CAN’T YOU SEE MY AGENCY DISSOLVES UNDER YOUR PRESSURE / YOU’VE GOT NO RIGHT TO CRAWL OUT INTO MINE / I’M TAKING IT BACK / I KNOW I TRY TO FIND A VOICE THAT’S MINE / I’VE BEEN TRYING TO EXPECT THE BEST THIS TIME / BECAUSE WHAT’S INSIDE IS MINE / WE ALL GET CONFUSED SOMETIMES / AS IF WE’RE SEPARATED BY A MILLION LINES AND SIDES / AND HAUNTED AS YOU ARE BY YOUR CONSTRUCTION / YOU HUNGER FOR ANOTHER’S PIECE OF MIND / CAN’T YOU SEE MY AGENCY DISSOLVES UNDER YOUR PRESSURE / YOU’VE GOT NO RIGHT TO CRAWL OUT INTO MINE / I’M TAKING IT BACK
Track Name: Loud One
PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME / I’M GOING TO TOWN / MY BAG’S ALL PACKED AND I’M JUST GOING TO TOWN / WHEN I COME BACK I HOPE THAT YOU’RE STILL AROUND / PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME WHEN I GO UNDERGROUND / I’VE SEEN THERE’S BELIEF IN ALL THE LIGHTS AND THE SOUND / BUT I’M ALWAYS SHAKEN BY THE SIGHT OF THE CROWD / WHEN I STEP OFF IN THE DARK AND WALK OUT INTO THE CLOUDS / I WANNA BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD BE THERE SOMEHOW / I CAN’T SEE IN THE DARK BUT I’VE BEEN DEEP IN IT / AND YOU DON’T WANT TO START IF YOU CAN’T SEE IT / DO YA?!
Track Name: Crazy Ocean
I WAS FLOATING IN THE CRAZY OCEAN / WAITING FOR A BIGGER WAVE TO COME / SWALLOW ME UP WITH MY BROKEN FINGERS / AND WASH UP OVER EVERYONE / IN THE CORNER OF THE ATMOSPHERE / I LIE AWAKE BUT I CAN’T MOVE / PARALYZED / STUCK BY SOME THING THAT CAN’T BE NAMED / WHILE THE WORLD BELOW ME FADES FROM OUT OF VIEW / WHEN EVERY DANGER HAS A CAREFUL MOTIVE / AND EVERY VILLAIN HAS A FACE THAT I CAN NAME / AND EVERY PLACE I’M STUCK IN IS A PLACE I’VE BEEN BUT CAN’T RETURN / EVERY MORNING I FEEL MORE OR LESS THE SAME / CUZ WHEN YOU LAY YOUR HEAD TO REST THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT FOLLOW THROUGH / RUN AWAY FROM WHAT’S COMING AFTER YOU / AND THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST / WELL THEY’LL BE LIVING IN THERE TOO / RUN AWAY FROM WHAT’S COMING AFTER YOU / RUN AWAY FROM WHAT’S COMING AFTER YOU
