The Art of Drowning

The Lost Souls

If you can’t stand upon the water I will see you on the ocean floor. When you blink do you only find the misery between the lines? Then take my hand and walk with me. Come to me, your sanctuary. I’ll gladly accept the gift that I’ve been granted. If you feel fine then give it just a little time. I’m sure you’ll contract my disease. Look what you’ve done to me now. You’ve made me perfect. Look what you’ve done to me now.

If you can’t stand upon the earth then I will see you on the other side. When you blink do you only find the misery weighs down your eyes? Then take my hand and sleep with me. Look what you’ve done to me now. You’ve made me perfect. Look what you’ve done to me now.

Take my hand, I’ll be everything to you. Take my hand, I’ll take everything from you. I will seep under your skin. I will. I will hold onto your heart. I will. Look what you’ve done to me now. You’ve made me perfect. Look what you’ve done to me now. Look what you’ve done to me now. You’ve made me perfect. Look what you’ve done to me now. What have you done?

The Nephilim

Swing through sadness, tears of joy. Curse the sunlight. Arsenic for the girls and boys. Drink the madness, smoke so coy. Smile injection. Serum of a will destroyed, serum of a will, serum of a will destroyed. The seasons change without me. I remain in shadows growing wings. The spirit song still surrounds me, in refrain, in shadows growing wings.

Like an angel with two broken wings, reach to the sky again. Like a devil, meant for better things, I will find my place on high. The seasons change without me. I remain in shadows growing wings. The spirit song still surrounds me, in refrain, in shadows growing wings.

Ever And A Day

Lie in the comfort of sweet calamity with nothing left to lose. Lie in the darkness, I’m slowly drowned to sleep with nothing left to lose. Three tears I’ve saved for you. I’d retraced the steps that lead me here but nothing lives behind me. So I lie in this field bathed in the light that loves me, with nothing left to lose. Three tears I’ve saved for you.

Will you be my, be my beloved? Will you help, help me to get through? Will you be my, be my destruction? Will you help, help me to be through? Will you be my, be my beloved? Will you help, help me to get through? Will you be my, be my destruction? Will you help? Three tears I’ve saved for you.

Sacrifice Theory

Hear one thousand screams. Hear one thousand voices. A solitary echo. Feel one thousand pains, but one is receiving a bloody invitation. Do you want to feel the warmth? To taste the life, to taste the life? Do you want taste the life? To taste the life, to taste the life flow?

Feel one thousand lost, sinking into soft skin. Ingest rejuvenation. One to consume, one to renew. Demanded invitation. Do you want to feel the warmth? To taste the life, to taste the life? Do you want taste the life? To taste the life, to taste the life flow.

I offer grace, I offer blood, I offer everything till my heart is crystal clear. I offer grace, I offer blood, I offer everything till my heart is crystal clear. Let me taste the life flow. Do you want to feel the warmth? To taste the life, to taste the life? I want to taste the life. To taste the life, to taste the life flow.

Of Greetings and Goodbyes

Now ending discreetly, just like a hidden sin. As I go under please tuck me in. Make me invisible. This hidden explosion calls for a wandering cast with no direction. Enter all the monsters let us twist another fairy tale. Go kill the lights, we’ll glow till morning comes. Then we go under. I’ll say goodnight and bow to everyone. Then we go under.

The beauties are sleeping as fruit just rots away. Today go hungry. Let it begin. Make me invincible. There was a weeping I carried down today, a sigh worth keeping. Deep within divinity let’s start another secret show. Go kill the lights, we’ll glow till morning comes. Then we go under. I’ll say goodnight and bow to everyone.

No need to worry it is just another monster. No need to fear here in the secret show. No need to worry I am just another monster. In you, I’ll see me, in the secret show. Go kill the lights, we’ll glow till morning comes. Then we go under. I’ll say goodnight and bow to everyone. Go kill the lights, we’ll glow till morning comes.

Smile

Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly. Now I have come to be the walking enmity. Assimilate into a culture of post morality. From what I’ve seen, I hate humanity. Rot with repulsion. I’ll write the world a brand new song. Look upon your bleak creation, but is it truly me that’s to be the human blasphemy? I’ll set the world on fire and in burning light, I’ll write my first love song and I will feel warmth.

Hide your eyes in heaven, in the lies. Believe. Relieve. I’ll end the world tonight. Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly. Now I have come to be a walking enmity for humanity, the human blasphemy. I’ll end the world tonight.

A Story At Three

Again and again they blend into one, my father the morning pushes through my moonlight love. So what’s sleep? Sleep. I’m tired, so tired, but it seems that there’s someone here with me. We are the wakeful, wry, and watchful. We’re awaiting deathless ones. We are the wakeful, wry, and watchful. We’re awaiting deathless ones.

A story at three with the shrillest of cries. My mind fights with the sparkles in the corner of my eyes. So what’s sleep? Sleep. I’m tired, so tired but it seems that there’s someone here with me. We are the wakeful, wry, and watchful. We’re awaiting deathless ones.

I hear the morning choir sing to me their elegy. So beautiful. They sing to me their elegy. Requiem. We are the wakeful, wry, and watchful. We’re awaiting deathless ones. We are the wakeful, wry, and watchful. We’re awaiting deathless ones.

The Days Of The Phoenix

I remember when I was told a story of crushed velvet, candle wax, and dried up flowers. The figure on the bed, all dressed up in roses, calling, beckoning to sleep, offering a dream. The words were as mystical as purring animals. The circle of rage, the ghosts on the stage appeared. The time was so tangible I’ll never let it go. Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away. I want to, I want to, I want to stay I fell into fantasy.

Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away. I want to, I want to, I want to stay I fell into fantasy.

The girl on the wall always waited for me, and she was always smiling. The teenage death boys, the teenage death girls. And everyone was dancing. Nothing could touch us then, no one could change us then, and everyone was dancing. Nothing could hurt us then, no one could see us then, and everyone was dancing. Everyone was dancing. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away. I want to, I want to, I want to stay I fell into fantasy. Our dreams seemed not far away. I fell into fantasy.

Catch A Hot One

Let’s tap your heart so we can paint the walls and see if anybody likes the tone or the pain. The hungry eyes waiting for your life flash, now they’re gonna see it. Open your veins so we can make a pool and bathe and see if anyone complains of the stain. Let’s strip you down so we can see your old scars. Now you’re gonna feel it. Now you’re gonna feel it. Show me how to shine now. Have you turned? Turned to dust? I saw an insect learn to fly. Have you ever seen the kingdom of the flies? It’s form was scorned. Have you lost the sense of touch? I saw it stay in sovereignty. Have you ever turned to dust?

Let’s lift you up so we can see how fast you fall. We always thought that you could fly. Now you’ll crawl. The lack of loyalty you thought you once felt, now you’re gonna feel it. Now you’re gonna feel it. Show me how to shine now. Have you turned? Turned to dust? I saw an insect learn to fly. Have you ever seen the kingdom of the flies? It’s form was scorned. Have you lost the sense of touch? I saw it stay in sovereignty. Have you ever turned to dust?

Now show me how to shine. Now show me how to shine. Now show me how to shine. Have you turned? Turned to dust? I saw an insect learn to fly. Have you ever seen the kingdom of the flies? It’s form was scorned. Have you lost the sense of touch? I saw it stay in sovereignty. Have you ever turned to dust?

Wester

I can feel you waiting for me when the sun retreats to the hills and I, below the blanket of the burning sky, wrap myself within. Embraced by dead leaves as the rain leaves trails of black down my face, and I creep through the twilight to that hidden place beyond the lonely. I’ll meet you tonight in the whispers when no one’s around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won’t be found. Nothing can stop us now…

I can feel you dreaming of me and the time when our steps are retraced and I creep through the twilight to that hidden place, beyond the lonely. I’ll meet you tonight in the whispers when no one’s around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won’t be found. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers when no one’s around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won’t be found. Nothing can stop us…

I can feel you dreaming of me, I can feel you dreaming. I can feel you dreaming of me, beneath a dream, beneath a dream. I can feel you dreaming of me one world away. I can feel you dreaming. We were just one world away. I can feel you dreaming of me in silent rapture. Lost in a dream, lost in a dream. One world away, one world away. Tonight, in the whispers when no one’s around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won’t be found. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight, in the whispers when no one’s around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won’t be found. Nothing can stop us…

6 To 8

Six figures enter, they’ve come to destroy the world. They’ve called together this storm almost every night. And I awake in another place. A familiar voice with a stranger’s face speaks more unheard words. I awake in another place. What new friends will the day bring? One for one thousand acquainted. What new home will the night bring? When it all comes down you just throw the bones.

On the way I saw five hours of sleep but your fire makes it all worthwhile. On the way I wrote words for you to keep. On the way. What new friends will the day bring? One for one thousand acquainted. What new home will the night bring? When it all comes down you just throw the bones.

On the way I saw five hours of sleep. On the way but your fire makes it all worthwhile. On the way I wrote words for you to keep. On the way… I saw myself. Lost myself along the way. And you were by me. On the way I saw five hours of sleep. On the way but your fire makes it all worthwhile. On the way I wrote words for you to keep. On the way…

The Despair Factor

Along the path where the stream is talking, I breathe the mist and continue walking. The wood it whispers in a language of its own. As a sigh escaped my lips, I feel the light caress of fingertips that steal away the breath and leave me on my own. Waiting by the stairs. Waiting, I despair. Waiting, I despair. Waiting by the stairs.

My whole life is a dark room. One, big, dark room. Do I hear the hollow sound, footsteps resounding on this frozen ground, or the familiar disappointment of the echoes of my own? Waiting by the stairs. Waiting, I despair. Waiting, I despair. Waiting by the stairs.

Somehow I ended up here in between where there is always the comfort of knowing I’ll never be seen. When I fall I wait for just one touch, and I fall. Weightless, endless, faithless, I’ll adore you. A single touch, before I fade. Painless let me pass through. Weightless, endless, faithless, I’ll adore you. A single touch, before I fade. Painless let me pass through.

Morningstar

I saw a star beneath the stairs glowing through the melting walls. Who will be the first to begin their fall? Or will we become one? Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I the ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything?

I saw a star beneath the stairs glowing bright before descent. And in the morning there is nothing left but what’s inside of me. Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I the ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything? Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I the ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything?

And I don’t want to die tonight, will you believe me? And I don’t want to fall into the light. Will you wish upon? Will you walk upon me? I don’t want to die tonight. Will you believe in me tonight? Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I the ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything? Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I the ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything?

Battled (Hidden Track)

I can’t think and I can’t speak! My mind is not my own! Feeling like my will is weak! Cannot find the strength to go on! I’ve battled! I’m fucking battled man! I’ve battled! I’ve battled yeah! I’ve battled! I’m fucking battled man! I’ve battled! I can’t think and I can’t speak! My mind is not my own! Feeling like my will is weak! Cannot find the strength to go on! I’ve battled! I’m fucking battled man! I’ve battled! I’ve battled yeah! I’ve battled! I’m fucking battled man! I’ve battled.
