Track Name: Down
It's not the words I wanna hear
This constant shift from comfort to fear
"Not a chance" you uttered to me
The very thing to bring me to my knees

Take it back, why won't you take it back?
Take me back, why won't you take me back?

It's in the way you'd look at me (ooo)
It's in the way you said you'd comfort me (ooo)
Eventually we will come around (ooo)
Until then baby, don't bring me down

It's not like you could not be true
The very thing that drove others from you
"It's not like that!" You said to me
This constant hunger can't be good for me

Take it back, why won't you take it back?
Take them back, take your damn lies back!

It's in the way you'd look at me (ooo)
It's in the way you said you'd comfort me (ooo)
Eventually I will come around (ooo)
Until then baby, I'll bring you down!

Constant cravings brought me back around
This time baby you can't bring me down
Take my hand, I'll make sure that you drown
Bury these feelings deep down underground
Was a time you were my hero,
Turns out you were just a zero
Break my heart just like a mirror, oh
Tell me baby what are you afraid of!

Take you back? Why would I take you back?
Get you back, I've come to get you back!

It's in the way you'd look at me (ooo)
It's in the way you said you'd comfort me (ooo)
Eventually we will come around (ooo)
Until then baby, I'll take you down!
Track Name: I Am Awake
There's a message in a letter that you left there for me
In a sun spot in a dark room where I was certain to see
I am missing come and find me the letter had said
I am lost now in the shadows with no place to lay my head

Believe me, I am awake
Find me in the house by the lake

There is something in the shadows that is coming for me
Left me empty left me wanting, made a shell out of me
Need to focus hands are shaking furious words are typed out
Tell the story of lovers missing and the darkness that lies about

Believe me, I am awake
Find me in the house by the lake
These nightmares they cannot take
These are the things that shadows always make

There's a mystery in a small town a feeling that I can't shake
Deception behind warm smiles everybody here is fake
In shadows lies the answers in light salvation saves
Need to find the truth from lies before we meet our graves

Before we meet our graves
I am awake.
Track Name: Shame
And I'm sorry I couldn't save you from the thing you have become
But it's slowly getting colder and the war has just begun
I can't claim to be your savior, I can't change the things you've done
I can only be your warmth in your world without the sun

Bury all your trespasses, put them in the grave
I tried so hard to be there, but your soul I couldn't save
And your heart's as black as midnight, put your foes into the grave
Bury them in armor let the world not see your shame

For your love has no explanation and your hate it knows no bounds
And the darkness that surrounds you drives you far from hallowed grounds
I can't claim to be your hero I can't chase away hell hounds
Let my warmth here surround you I promise I won't make a sound


Bury all your trespasses, put them in the grave
I tried so hard to be there, but your soul I couldn't save
And your heart's as black as midnight, put your foes into the grave
Bury them in armor let the world not see your shame


Bury all your trespasses, put them in the grave
I tried so hard to be there, but your soul I couldn't save
And your heart's as black as midnight, put your foes into the grave
Bury them in armor let the world not see your shame


Bury all your trespasses, put them in the grave
I tried so hard to be there, but your soul I couldn't save
And your heart's as black as midnight, put your foes into the grave
Bury them in armor let the world not see your shame

Mm you have no
Mm you have no
Mm you have no Shame
Mm you have no
Mm you have no
Mm you have no Shame

Bury all your enemies
Bury all your enemies
Bury all your enemies
Maybe the next one is me.
Track Name: House of Leaves
Tried so hard to get away
From all the burdens that chip away
Everything that you could dream
Is right there in that house of leaves
As the day dissolves to black
And the memories rush back
Everything you could conceive
Is inspired by that house of leaves

Know that the empty will eat you up
Know that the void will spit you out
Know that your words will remain true
Know that it will find you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

Can you feel the shifting shadows
Marching solemnly towards gallows
Everything that you don't need
Is taken by that house of leaves
And every promise that you said
Is echoed by the broken dead
Everything that you believed
Is consumed by that house of leaves

Know that the empty will eat you up
Know that the void will spit you out
Know that your words won't remain true
Know that it will find you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

And everything for which you grieved
Has trapped you in that house of leaves

Know that the empty will grind you down
Know that the void won't let you out
Know that your words were never true
Know that it has found you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

Hallways, hallways, hallways leading down
Hallways, all ways, always leading down
Hallways, hallways, hallways leading down
Hallways, all ways, always leading down
Always, Always, Always...
Track Name: Untitled Love Song
It's hard I confess, to properly express the way you make me feel
So I think that I'll just try to get it off my chest, it's the only way I can be real
You're the one that I love, the one I dream of, you're the only star in my sky
And if your light went away, I would be in disarray and I think my heart would die

So I'm writing you an untitled love song
But my clumsy words keep getting in the way
Just when I think the words sound right they are all wrong
And I'm stuck here with nothing left to say

It's tearing me apart, the words that are in my heart I cannot say to your face
Don't know where to start, cannot express in art, the beauty of your grace
Don't know what I should do, hate every song I write for you, they just don't hold up in the light
Can't sing the right notes to the very songs I wrote for you every single night

So I'm writing you another untitled love song
But my clumsy words keep getting in the way
Just when I think the words sound right they are all wrong
And I'm stuck here with nothing left to say

So I'm writing you an untitled love song
But my clumsy words keep getting in the way
Just when I think the words sound right they are all wrong
And I'm stuck here with nothing left to say

So I'm writing you another untitled love song
But my clumsy words keep getting in the way
Just when I think the words sound right they are all wrong
And I'm stuck here with nothing left to say

So I'm writing you another untitled love song
But my clumsy words keep getting in the way
Just when I think the words sound right they are all wrong
And I'm stuck here with nothing left to say
