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

Little Lies 04:13
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

Hornets Nest 03:38
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

Rebuild 04:18
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

Blur 03:49
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..

Sleepless 05:14
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

Isolated 03:47
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!

Cold Smoke 03:52
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..

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
