Track Name: Let Me Fall Apart
You let me fall apart

Lie, my love
-it tastes so sweet
To deny it for a while as it clings to your skin
Leeches, breeders,
Bleed us, make us clean.

You let me fall apart

To Reach me, deceive me
You touch me and I bend.
Fragile animal,
Something to believe in
I hear you say:
"Darling, I feel easy"

You let me fall apart

I spy you naked as a pagan
you lie, deny, crawling and impatient
You tie me and you bind me
And make me watch you moan.

You let me fall apart
Track Name: The Arsonist
She is sweet on the surface,
But behind the smoke she is worthless
And she may be as twisted as the tales she tells
Of dead men's hands and the black candle spells.
Doped up and sedated,
She shackles all of her hatred
And confines it to the pit of dismissal made of wax with a wick

But she is a freak with fire
Drinking lightning refilled with desire.
With every pill and every puff the flame dances ever higher.

While i walk to meet her,
the streets steall strength
- they cinder
and the winds remedy my plight i fight in the fray that ends in blight.
Through those red eyes i see
Passed the honey glazed body,
That wriggles and writhes above me and tries to hide her malicious intent.

On the morning of the Sabbath when the sun cast shadows on the early joggers jogging in fine fettle.

But she is a freak with fire
Drinking lightning refilled with desire.
With every pill and every puff the flame dances ever higher.
Track Name: I Fade
On my arm
you're heavy
Sucked me in
So clearly
But lust is blind
Said dearly
I'm holding on
But barely

Close my eyes and pray
I hate the way

Sonic lust
You gave me
Lovers' musk
Control me
Knees go week
I'm caving
Love is death
But I'm breathing

Close your eyes and pray
As I fade away
Track Name: Want You To Be Sad
The fires in your eyes are fears in disguise
They make you happy, make you laugh
but i want you
-and i need you to-
I want you to be sad.

I adore you
i don't need you
i adore you
i don't need you

Your eyes held mine, they weren't blue like the sky
But rather ink stained and so i wrote to you
In the colour of your eyes.
I want you to be sad.

I adore you
i don't need you

Om namaha Shivaya
This chord is for you.
I want you to be sad.

I adore you
i don't need you
i adore you
i don't need you
Track Name: These Words
I want to break free
of these words.
These starlings
Are your darkling stained fingers
on the page.
These words are empty,
Apathy.
They are the specters in the night.
But you are these words
That I hold so close
And your kiss is merely fiction.
