Track Name: Sinister Shores
I can feel the cold
Running through your bones
I can hear the whispers
Creeping at your door
You had me stranded
At this sinister shore
With a similar skin that I just can't ignore anymore

You had me howling for your touch
You had me howling
You had me howling for your love
You had me howling

And your heart will go
To places you've never known
If you just let me in
If you just let me in
Let's close our eyes
And pretend to be alive
We could revive
This delicate lie

You had me howling for your touch
You had me howling
You had me howling for your love
You had me howling
Track Name: Little Lies
She was in between pungent smoke and kerosine
I was listening to the personalities
That she claimed to be
Over times and over seas
That she kept within herself and me
Herself and me

I adore you
You caught me in your little threads
I adore you
I'm an insect in your web
I adore you
And all those little lies inside your head

Even though that I'm kind of hopeless in these times
And even though that I never was focused on the storm or these tides
And even though that my heart is broken so was yours back in time
Please believe me when I say

I adore you
You caught me in your little threads
I adore you
I'm an insect in your web
I adore you
And all those little lies inside your head

She caught me in her little threads
She caught me in her

Threads

I never thought that I could hurt so
In every foolish dream we dreamt
I promised you I'd never let go
I never thought that I could hurt so
Of every little lie the worst was telling you I'd never let go
Track Name: Hornets Nest
I'm wasting time
Hoping that all these ghosts of mine
I've confined
Won't trouble to break the chains that bind
Them inside
The rivers that turn all tears in wine
Let me find
Truth beyond these eyes

It has brought me down before

All the lines have coalesced
Emerged from a hornets nest
Genuine and dispossessed
For us to stay in unrest
In unrest

It has brought me down before

I'm wasting time
pretending that I am someone else
Wasting time
Pretending that I am somewhere else
Wasting time
Pretending that I am someone else
Wasting time

It has brought me down before
Track Name: Rebuild
I'm waiting on the edge of my seat
I feel the need to leave it and go
I'm getting tired of hide and seek
You offer me to leave me alone

It won't help it

I'm trying to forget
I'm trying to forgive
But you just won't admit
That you have done shit to rebuild us

You're trying to pretend that you're mine
And wasting everything that you've got
You manage to believe in my lies
I'm sorry but you know that I'm not

I can’t help it

I'm trying to forget
I'm trying to forgive
But you just won't admit
That you have done shit to rebuild us

I'm leaving now
But I've left long before
I'm leaving now
There's nothing to restore
Track Name: Blur
Will we ever bridge the distance
That comes with our fear
Will we ever gain persistence
If we're all insincere
Will we fall for one another
Through an act of love
Or will we all wake up at once
And watch our silhouettes dance

Dance

Will I ever keep the focus
On what's 'morally right'
Will I ever start to notice
With darkness comes light
Will I ever bridge the distance that comes with my fear?
I'm sure that I will find out

In time

You were the one..

Will I ever bridge the distance that comes with my fear
Will I ever gain persistence if we're all insincere
Will you fall for some other
Through an act of lust

I'm sure that I will find out

In time..
Track Name: Sleepless
Insomnia has taken its toll
I'm more confused than ever as I'm calling on my soul
To get some rest

Insomnia has taken its toll
I'm more confused than ever as I'm calling on these ghosts
To let me rest

I'm trying to escape from the cold
But I'm expelled from the shelter that I once called my home
And I can't rest

Because insomnia has taken its toll
And I'm more confused than ever because I'm counting on my soul
To get some rest

I haven't heard the sound of my heart in years
I haven't heard the sound of my lungs in years
I cannot close my eyes
because every time I try
I see the fake that I've become

All this time I've tried to be a better man denying the most dreadful crimes
All this time I've tried to hide my deepest fears
I will always wonder why
I fell for my lies

I never knew that the devil is such a good painter
Because these paintings he paints
Are all that remains
And they’re more than I can take
Track Name: Isolated
Now these walls I've built up for my defense
They are leaving me in suspense
If I'm ever to be seen again

I'm isolated for your salvation

And this hole in my chest
It is leaving me in distress
For it’s the epitome of a broken man
With a short lifespan

I'm isolated for your salvation

Say!
Track Name: Cold Smoke
I'm not pointing any fingers
There's no need to wish they'd break
The only thing I use them for
Is counting my mistakes

With folded hands I'm ready
To repent for my remains
But you misread my gesture
Accusing me to feign

You know that I am just about to scrabble in the past
Trying to cope with the fact that we're not meant to last

And you're going on twisting
Twisting my words up
And I just can't stop listening
Listening to these whispers from my cup
And I'm going on bending
Bending the truth until it's bearable enough

But in fact I'm missing your affection
Infect my heart with insurrection

With folded hands I'm ready
To repent for what I've done
But you misread my gesture
Accusing me to form a gun

And you're going on twisting
Twisting my words up
And I just can't stop listening
Listening to these whispers from my cup
And I'm going on bending
Bending the truth until it's bearable enough

And I can't act with circumspection
You’re failing on your introspection

Cold smoke coming from the rooftops thinking that I won't drop down below..
Track Name: Similar Skins
Similar skins make the twist in our eyes seem to be the disguise of ourselves

I can hear you whisper but it's scarcely audible
Your words have lost their trait
My words have lost their weight
As we're waiting for each other
To perform an act of contrition

My lack of trust has torn us further apart
Unable to replace these weathered hearts
Are we waiting for each other?

Similar skins make the twist in our eyes seem to be the disguise of ourselves

Let me in
