Track Name: Danse Macabre
The god of time
What music he makes
An odd rhythm
To live and procreate to

We dance proudly
Or stumble in shame
To reach so much
But lose it all the same

Can't you hear the spirits?
They call you from beyond the shadows
“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
We are many, and you shall be one of us
Keep on dancing from the cradle to the coffin!”

Can't you hear the dead?
Oh, they call you from beyond the shadows
“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
We are many, and you shall be one of us!”
Track Name: Spirits That I Called
Spirits that I called
Keep on haunting me
Mistakes that I made
Golden memories

What a time we had
But what a bitter end
I regret all the times I fooled you
Every white, every grayish lie
And I regret the pain I caused you
All the tears I made you cry

But it was intense
And it was unique
And just for a while
We were all we needed

But I should have left before I broke you

What a time we had
But what a bitter end
I regret all the times I fooled you
Every white, every grayish lie
And I regret the pain I caused you
All the tears I made you cry

Spirits that I called
Keep on haunting me
Mistakes that I made
I regret all the times I fooled you
Every white, every grayish lie
And I regret the pain I caused you
All the tears I made you cry
Track Name: Don't Dig Deep In The Shallow
Every new day's the death of the last
Our time's running, running so fast
And you want to maintain what we've got
But our time is running, running out so fast

There is nothing to hold on to
In this ever-changing world
There is nothing to rely on
And it hurts

Tears are falling
As the sun's going down
And you say that you love me
That you need me
But you wouldn't, my dear
If you knew me better
If you knew me well

There is nothing to hold on to
In this ever-changing world
There is nothing to rely on
And it hurts

The deeper I dig into you
The less I seem to find
The more I get to know you, love
The less I adore you
Yes, all pleasure wants eternity
But affection fades
You wouldn't love me either, love
If you knew me
If you knew me well

Tears are falling
As the sun's going down

The deeper I dig into you
The less I seem to find
The more I get to know you, love
The less I adore you
Yes, all pleasure wants eternity
But affection fades
You wouldn't love me either, love
If you knew me
Track Name: The Reaping
And now the scythe is set to reap
Because to live's to die a million times
And all of me that loves you
Is writhing in pain

Vicious circle of routine
Love burns off like gasoline
Time is cruel and takes its toll
The lover's never in control
Merely driftwood on a stream

Everything must fall apart
ash to ash, heart after heart
Time is cruel and takes its toll
The lover's never in control
Why is nothing meant to last?

I adored you
But now the scythe is set to reap
Because to live's to die a million times
And all of me that loves you
Is writhing in pain

We're breaking
Breaking apart
Time is cruel and takes its toll
The lover's never in control
Merely driftwood on a stream

I loved you so
But now the scythe is set to reap
Because to live's to die a million times
And all of me that loves you
Is writhing in pain
A part of me loved you
I really tried
To save it
But I've let it die

You're my dearest
My favorite shadow of the past
Track Name: Vanitas
Oh, from beyond they call you
Whenever you're alone
When you're weak

“Let it go!"
Oh, all the pain and trouble
"Let it go!"
Misery and fear
"Let it go!"
Oh, the continuous struggle
"Let it go!"
It's futile, give in to the urge

Life is cruel and uncaring
“Let it go!”
It's a hell that we're sharing
“Let it go!”
It's so easy to end it
“Let it go!”
Oh, how much more pressure before I break?

Oh, from beyond they call you
Whenever you're alone
Track Name: Blood Is Life
We bleed from different wounds
But we share a common pain
We're haunted by our past
Life will never be the same
Often it's unbearable
But sometimes it's incredible
I have also been trough hell
Believe me, I feel you

I didn't ask to be born
And still I'm breathing
But I choose to keep it up
every day anew
Oh, the wounds never heal
but I keep bleeding
For the moments of bliss
That contrast the pain

Blood is life
To live's to spill it
If you've never bled
Then you have not lived
The heart may be sore
But for now, it's still beating
The mind may be tired
But it's still awake

We bleed from different wounds
But we share a common pain
We're haunted by our past
Life will never be the same
Often it's unbearable
But sometimes it's incredible
I have also been trough hell
Believe me, I feel you

I didn't ask to be born
And still I'm breathing
But I choose to keep it up
every day anew
Oh, the wounds never heal
but I keep bleeding
For the moments of bliss
That contrast the pain

When life knocks you down again
Look into your past
Remember what you have bled for
You can bleed some more
And you will bleed more
And you'll stand it
'Cause it's worth it
Because life is a gift
Spill your blood
Track Name: Beautiful & Broken
I fell for the idea of you
Your cold, indifferent attitude
Don't be so cruel, please care for me
So I can lose interest and be free
Yeah

Come, fall for the idea of me
Ignore my instability
I'm beautiful and eloquent
I need you to love me 'cause I can't
Hell, no

I need to learn to let the person go that I imagined you to be
Learn to let the image go that I've internalized

The Devil guides your every step
Oh God, I want my backbone back
A cat that's playing with its prey
Won't you get bored and swallow me?
Come on, do it now

I need to learn to let the person go that I imagined you to be
Learn to let the image go that I've internalized

I need to let the image go that I've internalized
Let the person go that you've never been
That you'll never be
That I don't deserve
Track Name: Sardonic Laughter Of Doomed Lovers
I always find a way
To ruin what is precious
To burn what I have sown
And hurt the ones I love

Intimacy is hell
When it's no longer heaven
Solitude's a hydra
Come on, chop off the head
Let's soothe our pain for a while
With affection and saliva
'Cause nothing lasts forever
In pieces we shall rest

Baby, won't you include me in your midnight prayers?
I'm bleeding to death from my chest
And I already know that I'll ruin this, darling
But hard it's less hard to forget
I always find a way
To ruin what's precious
To burn what I have sown
And hurt the ones I love

I am a mess indeed
Emotionally crippled
I crave for love so badly
I bite the hand that feeds
And all I ever need is something
Unattainable to desire
I guess it's kinda funny
It almost makes me laugh

Baby, won't you include me in your midnight prayers?
I'm bleeding to death from my chest
And I already know that I'll ruin this, darling
But hard it's less hard to forget
I always find a way
To ruin what's precious
To burn what I have sown
And hurt the ones I love
Track Name: Apocalypse
Can't you see that I'm drowning?
Can't you feel me drowning in your heart?
This is too much to handle, darling
Too much for me

You're so addictive
You make me feel so young
You touch my skin
And the world is dead and gone

Your lips
My lips
Apocalypse

Can't you see that I'm drowning?
Can't you feel me drowning in your heart?
This is too much to handle, darling
Too much for me

Give me all your love tonight
I want to hold you close and feel your heartbeat
I need your love tonight
I want to hold you close and never let you go
Give me all your love tonight
I want to hold you close and feel your heartbeat
Track Name: Cruelty Of Time
And thrown into this world
We start to dissipate
Security goes by
All constants start to crumble
What gives you hold wears out
What eases gets used up
And chaos breaks free

Every embrace, every kiss
Roots in a yearning to be whole
Is an attempt to feel complete
At least together
If not separately
Just for a while

Oh, I don't want do die
But if I could have chosen
I am not quite sure
If I'd have wanted to be born
What gives me hold wears out
What eases gets used up
I feel my decay

Every embrace, every kiss
Roots in a yearning to be whole
Is an attempt to feel complete
At least together
If not separately
Just for a while
