Maelstrom 03:17
Take my hand for awhile Steal my breathe with a smile I need you more than ever to help me see this through The current pulls me down, My head is going under Maelstrom in my mind, feeling capsized I’m howlin' for your gaze, to meet me for a spell The current pulls me down, will you let me under? And all I see ahead of this love is loss, Take my hand but know someday i’ll let go Fulfillment is a ghost and my heart is the haunted house Try as you may you can’t heal these scars And now the time has come The hands have aligned The sun is shining down on me Now hear the battlecry As we come alive Imbue me with your melody And as it all burns up You start glimmering I hope tomorrow never comes Oh let this moment last Unwavering A peace inside though we knew The spell you cast just could never last My better side is just a mask to hide The ghost inside my bones that drags me to this place Monotony creeps in; won’t you take me far away The demon in me always seems to win

You’ve got a lot to learn So just stick around They’ll show you the way To get that rock rolling And as long as you try I’m sure they’ll all love you So don’t carry that sigh Just give them your best Maybe it’s not quite as nice as you thought it would be And underneath the gold you can feel the cracks Find your reason to put up a fight And carve that name into the back of your head 30 odds years ain't got nothing to shine This mountain will move I won’t settle for less After the cameras off you can see the smile Fade away again as the haunt resumes And the voice in her head Is all bitter and angry Yearning for a dream That slipped between her fingers And deep inside her bones there’s a ghost and a pain No one else to blame is it time to face up? Find your reason and put up a fight And carve that name into the back of your head 30 odds years ain't got nothing to shine This mountain will move I won’t settle for less No better time than the present to fly To hell with your rules im gonna make you move Find your reason and put up a fight And carve that name into the back of your head Burden me down I’ll still come back from this This mountain will move I won’t settle for less and in the end you'll find, the other voice mattered was the one in your head so give them your best

Pale Eyes 02:50
Hey Pales Eyes, Let me show you my bones, Spend some time with this old ghost If you got the swing baby, I got the shine, Let’s take this train off into the eve’ Devotion in kind, Maybe just for the night, You could be my queen? But with a face like that I must be dreaming, woah She’s got a fan club, and a check by her name I’m just a phantom, who’s got the blues Tell me your name Or just give me a sign That it’s time to leave this place behind No need to wait Or pretend for my sake, You can be true for me darling But with a face like that I must be dreaming, woah She’s got a fan club, and a check by her name I’m just a phantom, who’s got the blues Light of my eye You know I can't wait til the sun burns out to get a taste let's lead them all out far past the gate so no one hears when I end the chase Say what you want But baby I know Behind your pretty smile There’s a demon in tow Be my lady Just for a spell And don’t worry honey Cuz I won’t tell So hey pale eyes What’ll it be? Won’t you spend a little bit of time with me?

The Veil 03:22
Complicit in the crime Oh we’re just buying time Sold them on a lie Tempered in the masquerade The Devil runs by a brand new name the song remains the same Steady your aim, count it down with me Here’s to the fall of Rome And the circle completing Now bend your knee and beg Repentant and believing That still there was no better time than now To stand up and fight your fate You claw at the veil, but the truth you won’t find Say it isn’t so Where was our warning? Crippled by the doubt Of Who was deceiving (who)? The devil goes by a brand new name the song remains the same Steady your aim, let it all out now Here’s to the fall of Rome And the circle repeating Bend your knee and beg Repentant and believing That still there was no better time than now To stand up and fight your fate You claw at the veil but the truth? we buried it long ago Here’s to the fall of Rome And the circle completing Bend your knee and beg Repentant and believing That still there was no better time than now To stand up and fight your fate Don’t worry my dear, this all has happened before

Catch the feeling It's infectious A necessary evil So they chanted As they marched on Anger as their banner Everybody look away There's blood on the streets Lined them up one by one With a bullet to the head Oh as we led him to the gallows Tell me friends have you ever looked in a mirror? Oh we're still hungry Nothing is enough to extinguish the urge Crush the hateful Snuff the candle We'll take no surrender There's no mercy Or good reason Just a hunger for the feeling Hey Mr. Commandant, They said you would know Just want to do To save us your faithful We’re down on our knees We’re your bavarian bleu Now the bolt has begun to bend No lesson was learned another reminder Of the evil inside her The circle keeps spinning round and round and round and round Catch the feeling It’s infectious A necessary evil So we chanted As we marched on, Anger as our banner There’s no mercy Or good reason Just a hunger for the feeling For the feeling For the feeling

The Mirror 02:58
My name is firebrand And I’m bulletproof I can’t hear your words Over the sound of my roaring blaze Do you toe the line? will you join me on this climb? I’ll make your castles move my spirit's running high This the start and I have no apologies To give to thee Gonna make you all see that I was right all along The rules don’t apply To all the rising stars and the fever dreamers Have you got the stones, to brave this bitter world? Can you hear that rolling wheel, crushing another soul? Alone, we feel, as the winter snow starts to fall Down, again. The devil our back won’t break Fulfillment is our phantom pain Is it ever enough for you? Won’t you help me see this through The reverie of all my years snuffed out Time doesn’t wait It’s passing ya by it feels too late To turn this sinking old ship around Is that me in the mirror? Have I grown into this fool? They told me that it’d be different, They sold me a different world. And the dream is gone There’s nothing left to love, But this cold dark grave.

She’s waiting in my dreams Bringing me to task Reminding me of all the bridges I’ve burnt down It’s time to smell the ashes Just it let decay all the ghosts and past mistakes I can’t wash away I couldn’t be the man you wanted me to be for that I’m sorry darling but the show must go on But It’s what I deserve It’s my penance I’m looking through the wreckage signs point to sabotage Is it too late to turn this tide and get back to shore Don’t feel bad for me Just learn from my mistake Don’t let her become the girl of your dreams Indulge my wicked heart Make me empty Ohh I know someday I’ll forget you Yeah someday But it can’t come soon enough this hollow love is not enough To live on To live on thoughts and flames but none compare lost to time let me take it back once endless skies now turn to black how fate beyond does seem to lack the best times are in the past

Funeral Song 02:55
Looking down the end of a barrel Always biting your tongue to get by Walk slowly and shuffle down the alley You wouldn’t want them to see you so low Be strong no one has to worry Don’t let it show Just let it go To that little old place Where nothing ever seems to change Keep kicking the can down the road Call Fritz and let him know the score On a grave a single white rose Sits weeping alone But you don’t know There’s a little old place Where nothing’s ever seems change You can cry if you want As long as you know That things won’t get better You died a long long time ago And this is your funeral song I’m playing you out babe It’s all been a dream It’s time to wake up It’s to time to give in You died a long long time ago And this is your funeral song Hey now it’s time to dry those tears No one’s gonna miss you when you’re gone The world’s turning you’re already forgotten Just a flash in the pan It’s time to go To that little old place we all know you’ll never change You can cry if you want As long as you know That things won’t get better You died a long long time ago And this is your funeral song I’m playing you out babe It’s all been a dream It’s time to wake up It’s to time to give in You died a long long time ago And this is your funeral song

They say it’s the times burgeoning on Cast a shadow on the light of my soul Sticking around Bringing us down Make your peace unwanted company A new dawn is here and I’ll see it through Even if it takes me far away And I hope it takes me far away From the voice in my head You’re just a voice in my head No matter how hard I try It keeps coming back to you Sitting all alone outside, just chasing the rain Waiting on something to change But it never does it never does You’re just a voice in my head I’m running back in reverse, Still haunted by your name I’ve tried my best to fake it And just bury away This jukebox that keeps repeating Your siren song Your siren song Is just a voice in my head You're just a voice in my head A voice from the dead All the time that we’ve shared, I hope it was fun for you.

When I was young I couldn't wait to age Stand up tall with my pop the sage I can help you hold the line I may be small but I know in time Things will look up things will change I skin my knees for another day Fleeting flickering fickle flame Hide tonight and ease the pain But don't you fret just yet Cuz the worst part’s yet to come It's waiting for you at the end Right before it goes dark You'll wonder if you ever truly got to live the life You wanted to Now that I'm older and worse for wear Starting to rust, living on a dare I'm slowing down I guess it's true Time always gets the best of you But don't you fret just yet Cuz the worst part’s yet to come It's waiting for you at the end Right before it goes dark You'll wonder if you ever truly got to live the life You wanted to The lines that paint your face won't lie There's a price we all have to pay You say that they'll never burn your heart out But will you still believe When there's no roses at your door? But don't you fret just yet Cuz the worst part’s yet to come It's waiting for you at the end Right before it goes dark You'll wonder if you ever truly got to live the life You wanted to But you don’t you fret just yet
