Track Name: Twist Of Fate
A turn of a key
A swing of a door
A flutter of black wings
And I flew to the floor

The seraphs cry
They've seen that they're blind
But it's hard to see under wool
Under wool
Under wool
Into blood thirsty eyes

Because all I had was this
And then you went and turned it into this
And now I've nothing left

Oh darling,
you were the perfect thing that I had lost
Oh darling,
now you're all the pain and suffering I've got

A loss of a dream
A scream, a scream
I think that pillows
started screaming back at me

What was failed to be said
What was in that needle
I so desperately searched for

It left me broken sore and bruised
And then you left me broken tired and used
And now there is nothing left

Oh darling,
you were the perfect thing that I had lost
Oh darling,
now you're all the pain and suffering I've got

Just because I open my hands
Doesn't mean I want to let you go
Just because I open my palm
Doesn't mean you ever need to know
Track Name: Blessed Be The Fishes
The sea has settled
Industry cries
So people follow

When God came down to earth
We put him right to work
Pulling boats like a dog to a sleigh

Blessed be the fishes they're the last of the underlings
They always have the feeling of being under someones feet
Blessed be the fishes they'll have to know
What it's like to see their king thrown off his throne

The things that people do in a room with only two
Eye level can change your views on the soles of someone's shoes

Water into wine
For them to beat their wives
And the innocent to die

We called it a crutch
And then we took to much
With our day by day by day by days

The things that I choose, mean nothing to a bruise
I'm starting to believe it to, I always give into bad news


Godspeed is slower than it seems
It took him a week to make a mess
It takes me a minute at best

If we're lucky, life amounts to nothing
Because heaven is censorship
And hell is meaningless

And when I turn all the lights out
I expect not see
When I give it all up
I'm expecting to be free
To be free

I don't want to watch all my friends die
In fires and debris
I'm ignoring the calls
That are calling after me
After me

I lost my mouth
I lost it like a fly
That breeds in lies
I don't even know if I was even wrong
Or if I was even right

Blessed be the fishes they're the last of the underlings
They always have the feeling of being under someones feet
Blessed be the fishes they'll have to know
What it's like to see their king thrown off his throne

The things that people do in a room with only two
Eye level can change your views on the soles of someone's shoes
The things that I choose, mean nothing to a bruise
I've given all that I have, I'm giving it all still to bad news
Track Name: I Wish That My Fingers Were Nails (Because Yours Are Already Crosses)
You stood there
In your perfectly healthy skin
Claiming weren't just sick in the head

As if that's a reason to give

Am I cure?
Or just not able to detect?
'Cause you got better when I left

Is the same true for you? and you? and you?

You said cancer
Had ridden you to the start to end

But that's not the reason you're sick
You stared into me
And shook me into my core

Oh I became
Part of me that I never had
And now I speak in devil's tongue
And now I speak in devil's tongue
I swore I never ever would

I hung on everything you said
Like a man on a noose
I strung out everything that you said
That resembled bad news

And now I,
I see you in me torn apart

My lungs,
You blow up every time I try to speak
My eyes,
You paint everything that I want to see
My heart,
You need everywhere except where I can be
My hands,
You grab everything that you don't need

I wish that my fingers were nails
Because yours are already crosses
They're crosses
Track Name: Skin & Bone
Vines of creeping dread
Towards a limelight in my head
A prayer for loss of control
For a price to pay it's toll in you

(Take my heart, have it
Take it all, havoc)

I want you sewn into this place
For a reason you can't change
Eyes of sinner's guilt
Is the price price for guts unspilt

Made of skin & bone
You have heart so you could never leave it alone

I want you nailed to this tale
A sickly carousel
I want you dying to be here
Even though may not be me that you whole dear

But it's skin & bone
You have a heart so you never leave it alone

Take my heart
Have it
Take it all
Cause havoc

You left it out
For the world to see
Why were you surprised
That that included me?
Track Name: Subtelties
The last time I saw you was filled with so many subtleties
It was the last time I ever saw you
Why didn't you just hurry up
And where that god-damned ring?

Will you hurry up
And die in your sleep?
Like an angel in the breeze
Because if you're going to go
Go how you are in my memory
Track Name: Under Your Spell (Desire cover)
I don't sleep
I don't eat
I do nothing but think of you

You keep me under your spell
You keep me under your spell
