Track Name: Swear It To The Sun
I promised I’d keep this clean
But I promised many things
So far away from me
No more a menace

I’d go the distance
Cower in the dark and regress
Burn the witches
Pretending that we’re not
As the priest said
“Raise your hand and swear you’ll love me”
Cross my fingers, repent. Nothing is lost

Oh what we were
To find out who we are
The cold world’s not enough
And just one thing
Who we are

Swear it to the sun
Tell me is it fun?

I can’t sleep with the light off
I can’t sleep through the darkness anymore
I can’t sleep with my head torn
I can’t see what I though I should have know
Track Name: United/Divided
Standing up being a captive my disease and I’ll start when I want to start,
Its not a trip but a divine right to be,
This is my castle and I'm keeping it all locked

'cus I wont see what ive become,
United divided indulged by myself,
But never wrong

I’d save the ego’s for another day,
Stand back and watch this fall…..

Cage me up, tie me down, bring me around,
Tell me something’s gonna change and im not,
Cut my reputation be It quietly aggravating,
I butchered everything and what’s the cost,

'cus I wont breath and I wont drown,
Promises made like a piss in the wind,
I'd let you drown.

I'd save the egos for another day
Stand back and watch this fall…from grace

We’re in decline now boy,
Like I told you, this is our time..

'cus I wont leave until im done,
United divided indulged by myself,
But never wrong.

I'd save the egos for another day,
Stand back and watch this fall from grace.

I won't leave my thoughts with you.
Track Name: Black Skies Mist
Testing does this work,
Investing lets not talk about it,
Arrested misconduct,
You wont see my halo shine,

Where do we go with this?
A soothing remedy with my fist,
I wanna see the black skies mist as there’s just one thing I need,

One by one we still stand with our backs against the wall,
One by one they put out their hands and I burn them all

I’m not the fire, I’m just a flame,
When will we learn to love these gods again?

One thing I won’t leave,
Without leaving you some kind of…

What is it I have missed?
A situation I cant resist,
Making loves a kiss with a fist,
As their turning all there focus on me,
Set fire the light with the energy,
The golden glow the sunset supremacy,
A remedy the cure for the enemy as there’s just one thing I need,

One by one we still stand with our backs against the wall,
One by one they put out their hands and id burn them all,

I’m not the fire, I’m just the flame,
When will we learn to love these gods again?
Coz I shot the messenger and I shot his friend,
When will we learn to love these gods again?

Maybe you wont see and maybe how we’ve changed,
Maybe you wont believe maybe how we’ve changed,
Just one things forgotten, just one things forgotten,
I wont be at the bottom, I wont be…

I’m taking off the noose, just enough to be this god in love with you,
I’m taking off the noose, just enough to be this god in love with you
I’m taking off the noose, just enough to breath enough, just enough to hear the truth,
I’m taking off the noose , just enough to breath enough, just enough to hear the truth.
