Track Name: The Bottle
The Bottle

If you take this away, I'm left with nothing
If you look the other way
This path won't seem so endless
The only time you see the roads I walk
Is by the light of day
They only lead me home through clouds of darkness
And decay

Throw all your fears in to the sea
They're only fragments of a life I'll never lead
Cover your eyes it will be easier to see
This darkness is part of me

This is all I have, it's all I've ever known
8 years ago, 2 roads away from home
I medicated my responsibility
And lost this claustrophobic sense of life
As a burden to me
And I can't say goodbye to what's been by my side for years
And through the tears
And every time I draw the line
I feel this emptiness inside
It's like I need a place to hide
I find my solace in Darkness
In this

(White)
Track Name: Mal Du Pays
Mal Du Pays

A town cursed to live in
A town I cannot leave
A road I'm always walking
A road lost in eternity

Lost in time
In a time of no regrets
These streets are paved with tears
By fears that cannot rest

Is this all it comes to?
Is this all it takes?
To fall in love with hatred
Hatred for this place

Found in the darkness
By the stars of the night
The wanderlust awakens
‘Mal du pays’ me now
‘Mal du pays’ me now
‘Mal du pays’ me now

(Fowler)
Track Name: Seven Claret Seas
Seven Claret Seas

I'll drink the seven seas
This oceans drowning me
I'll drink until I'm blind
I'll shut down my mind
I'll drink until this life's destroyed
And my heart no longer beats
This is my escape from life
I won't admit defeat

I can't sleep unless there's poison in my veins
And when I sleep alone
I always feel the pain
Knowing this life is not reality
I'm controlled by the sickness
That lives inside of me

Drain my blood in to your goblet of death
Bleed me dry until there's nothing left
Drink the blood that's been running through my heart
This claret cyanide is why I fall apart

Just hold me, don't lead me astray
Take my hand, take me far away

(White)
Track Name: By The Third Chime
By The Third Chime

By the third chime
I am relinquished by all that is mine
Lucid sparks are dying
By the third chime
All is forgotten that’s left inside
Broken dreams left to weave

We have seen each other before
Myself and a four
Four as a year
Four as a build to what should have been
And four as a new
A new hope stares at me in the future
I question it with fear and fright

With fear and fright
I look to worthlessness
By the third chime
A dictated lunacy
Into the light I attempt to rebuild
By the third chime
I fall for you again

You haunt me everyday
How I hoped you would comfort me
But instead you are a burden to me

A new dress of candles and milestones
Dressing you in a wonder of forgetfulness

But you never leave me
As new beginnings are made
I put your darkness in front instead of behind

As I begin to forget I consume you through visions
By the third chime

(Fowler)
Track Name: In Mind
In Mind

In my mind
I've died a thousand times
Leaving you being
In search of dreams
I will never find

(White)
Track Name: Opaque Words From Silver Tongue
Opaque Words From Silver Tongue

I’ am drenched in decisions made by past resentments
I crush this life with no purpose to fight
I bide my time to persevere this disma and to destroy my mind
I decline this world of empathy and false prophets we are forced upon

Controlling
Bursting flights of deceit
Helpless thoughts of past regrets
Left to starve in depraved memories
To speak inside is to speak alone

Walk on walk by
Walk to the edge so high
Drop one drop two
My lips are turning into blue
You are my abuse I pass on to you

(Fowler)
Track Name: Nostalgic Plague Of Negativity
Nostalgic Plague Of Negativity

This black cloud fills the sky again
This cold wind blows over my skin
The handle shakes on this door
I must open it once more
I must find the gilded key
Buried deep inside of me

Broken mirrors forming eyes
Reflecting fragments of this life
Dragged from darkness in to light
To take me there again

This intoxicating disease
Causes nausea in me
Though I'm suffocating
I must let it breathe
Released from Inner chains
Forged from self destructive pain
This thickening stream of torment
Runs heavy through my veins

Nostalgia fills me with grief
This plague is fuel for me
I ride on ocean waves
Formed from Negativity

I wish that there was any other way
I can't keep reliving my darkest days
There's a beast inside, I try to hide
But keep alive for times like this

(White)
Track Name: Journeying Through The Amphetasinthe
Journeying Through The Amphetasinthe

Pulsating rhythm’s absorbed by this altering
Times moves by but I’ am still

Medicated by this night of ill illusion
Poisoned by my own spell of orchard lunacy
Synthesizing state of ritualistic erratic breathing
Cloaked by night and warmed through the dusk

I beg to stay inside this vessel of sleepless space
I kill my conscience during my hearts race

We are the dying dregs of a lost age
We choose to bend our vision in broken smiles
We are the compassion of self destruction
We choose to journey through the amphetasinthe

Blind folded by our poison you carry me home
Tomorrow hatred rises again

Hatred rises again
Hatred rises again
Hatred lives on

(Fowler)
Track Name: Absinthropy
Absinthropy

Moments of clarity
Made for you are drowning me

This life we drown in all regrets
In the dark where we are able to forget
We drink this potion to pretend
All is now gone

This life we inhale all that is our end
In the dark where we are able to forget
We take a spell we must weave to please
Absinthropy

I for one can’t see the sun
Blind by what’s inside of me

This life we drown in all regrets
In the dark where we are able to forget
We drink this potion to pretend
All is now gone

This life we inhale all that is our end
In the dark where we are able to forget
We take a spell we must weave to please
Absinthropy

Life is pain, you're another victim in this game
I lower myself down in to this grave
Life is pain, you're another victim in this game
I close my eyes and count my final days

(Fowler/White)
Track Name: In Memory
In Memory

It's been years since I saw your face
And we don't talk anymore
If you could see me now
You'd be so ashamed
I didn't make you proud
And there's only me to blame

You left me so much to live up to
I'll never be as strong a man as you
Close your eyes to all the things I've done
Turn away from the person I've become

I hope that one day I can be
Everything you were to me
I dream I find the strength in my mind
To leave my past behind
And all the mistakes I've made
I pray will slowly fade
I hope that all of this comes true
In memory of you

Believe in me, I'll be okay
Can't you see, I made it through the day

(White)
