Lyrics

CIRCLE OF GHOSTS

Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.

I spy, with my little eye, curses within curses, lies within lies
I can see, through this malady, circles within circles, dreams within dreams.

Into this void, I will fall, and there, through the thick of it all
The haze will cut in front of my eyes, and I can feel the circle draw tight.
I will dare to walk with the dead, and I will move, through this valley of dread.
I will confront the maker of dreams, and I will tread among the disease.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.

Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.
I can see your fear in the air, and I will be something more than aware
I will dance right in front of your eyes, circles within circles, night after night.

Into this void, I will fall, and there, through the thick of it all
The haze will cut in front of my eyes, and I can feel the circle draw tight.
I will dare to walk with the dead, and I will move, through this valley of dread.
I will confront the maker of dreams, and I will tread among the disease.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.
Joined at the hip to the body of hosts, I am within this circle of ghosts.

BLACK SWANS AT DAWN (We are Dead Dead Dead Dead)

In the twinkling of an eye,
In the storm of my mind
You were there, I’m aware
That you stood by my side

In the temples of poppycock,
Through the portholes of grief
There, I lay down
Spread eagle, to die

In this age of reason,
In this spanning of time,
You were there, I’m aware,
That you stood by my side

In this orchestration
We sway to the tune,
Like a muse, on the mantle
Of a worlds pending doom.

With visions of ziggurats,
Reaching up and on high,
You were there, I’m aware
That you stood by my side

In those fields of Eloheim,
Where the Titans were born
I spread out, like a starfish,
Awaiting the dawn.

In this manifestation,
We know sufferings rise,
You were there, I’m aware
You stood by my side

In our lamentation,
Wisdom is unveiled
And I lie, as a corpse
In this bracken filled field

(CHORUS)

The little bright spots
Are the stars in the sky
We are dead, dead, dead, dead
As they die, die, die, die
We are all born from nothing,
Yet we all long to fly,
We are black swans at dawn
In a darkening sky.

(CHORUS REPEAT)

BEHIND THE VEIL

I’m sending out a message,
I’m taking off my gloves,
Do you hear the sirens when a push becomes a shove?
Don’t you see the walls they’re building?
Can’t you recognize this cage?
It’s a prison for the people,
The kings have altered, but nothing changed.

I peer behind the veil,
To see what I could find,
I found my courage there,
I found my piece of mind.
I look beyond those walls,
As far as I could see,
Your fucking obstacles, they don’t mean shit to me.
Do you hear the sirens when a push becomes a shove?

In this veil we do trust,
Hidden, but we see,
On this vile course we plunge,
It’s a sick, sick, sick, society.
Under the veil, we live, with the current rule of thumb.
On this vile course we stay,
Together, we shall overcome,

I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,
I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,
I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,

This is just a warning for when the system falls apart,
The evidence is mounting and our time is running short.
This is just a feeling for when the walls begin to crash.
The foundation of our nation begins to peel begins to crack.

I peer behind the veil,
To see what I could find,
I found my courage there,
I found my piece of mind.
I look beyond those walls,
As far as I could see,
Your fucking obstacles, they don’t mean shit to me
Do you hear the sirens when a push becomes a shove?

In this veil we do trust,
Hidden but we see,
On this vile course we plunge,
It’s sick, sick, sick, society.
Under the veil we live, with the current rule of thumb.
On this vile course we stay,
Together, we shall overcome.
I peer behind the veil,
To see what I could find,
I found my courage there,
I found my piece of mind.
I look beyond those walls,
As far as I could see,
Your fucking obstacles, they don’t mean shit to me
Do you hear the sirens when a push becomes a shove

In this veil we do trust,
Hidden, but we see,
On this vile course we plunge,
It’s a sick, sick, sick, society,
Under the veil, we live, with the current rule of thumb
On this vile course we stay,
Together, we shall overcome,

I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,
I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,
I can see behind the veil, I can see behind the veil,

ABOMINATION (I Destroy the Things I Touch)

Subconscious you have come before me,
Revealed to me my checkered past,
Forced me to this contemplation,
Set me to this current task.
When did I become this monster?
That which stands before you now
When did I begin to suffer?
The consequences of the law
Where did I go wrong in thinking?
How did I commit this act?
Where were you when I was sinking?
Drowning in my own self -pity

(CHORUS)

I am an abomination.
I destroy the things I touch.
The guilt I feel is my emotion
Calling out to my subconscious
Don’t come to me with adoration.
With thoughts on bringing me to grace
I will reject this false salvation.
Penetrate and rape your case.

The spire of knowledge grows eternal.
They say the truth shall set you free.
Captive here as in the garden,
A murdered body at my feet
No reprise, no second chances.
There are no chains to hold us fast.
Just consciousness reverberating
Force me to relive the act.
The guilt I feel is not a pleasure.
This sense of loss is something real.
Don’t temp me with your tongue of virtues
Don’t temp me and don’t come near.

(CHORUS)

My old friend you beg to haunt me,
With shadows that have come and gone
Why is it you won’t release me
Let me go, let me move on
Provide to me your absolution,
Grant me with this edifice
Together we’ll see resolution,
Together we can make things right
Tear from me my conscious seething,
With and anger from my past
Cauterize this soulless feeding,
Let this crossing be our last

(CHORUS)

OPTIMISTIC NIHILIST

You’re an optimistic nihilist,
In the wake of an apocalypse
You smile as our world is lost
A universal holocaust

You’re a hard-lined revisionist
As the clock ticks down, your spirits lift
Happy when our time is done
Hopeful you will overcome

(CHORUS)

You’re an optimistic nihilist
In a positive depressive state
You’re a mentalist, ventriloquist,
That smiles at the hands of fate

Your nihilism’s nothing new
Your optimism gets you through
Your boomerang of energy
Conflicts with certain harmony

You’re an optimistic nihilist
In a positive depressive state
You’re a mentalist, ventriloquist
That smiles at the hand of fate

You’re a doomsday philanthropist
Partial to a catalyst
Looking for great things to come
In the wake of Armageddon

You’re a morbid philosopher
Equating how things will occur
Placing all your views in line
A sequence of events in time

(CHORUS)

You’re a renegade apothecary
Healing those that cannot see
In your hands they place their trust
To lead them through the world of dust
You’re an optimistic nihilist
In a positive depressive state
This negativity’s no new
Your optimism gets you through

(CHORUS)

THE FALLEN

Enshrouded by her magic
Encircled in her ring
The spell she cast upon me
Was an “other” worldly thing

I was drawn towards her
Like a moth unto a flame
The Devil had a daughter
I believe I know her name

(CHORUS)

FALLEN FOR YOU
The Devil had a daughter
FALLEN FOR YOU
I believe I know her name
FALLEN FOR YOU
The Devil had a daughter
FALLEN FOR YOU
I believe I know her name

Your melody has raptured me
Turned my other cheek
Entangled I’ve become in you
The strands are growing thick
I try to pull away the weeds
Which sprout amongst our fruit
And when I do, the truth’s in view
There’s a devil in your roots

The music’s over, all has gone
The fairies flown away
The rainbow’s dissipated
And the moon is turning grey
The forest through the trees
Is a haunting vile place
And when I close my eyes in fear
I see a demon in your face

The dance is done
The waves have washed up on the shore
Separated I’ve become from you
I’m running through your open door
The stars that shone above our world
Are dim and distant forms
And through the haze between us
I can see you’re growing horns

(CHORUS)

ROSE EATER

Every part of me is a rapist,
Every smile, every thought.
I wear the guile of a master,
Hold the reverence of a god.

Every part of you is enticing,
Every movement, every glance.
Every second that I watch you,
Is a moment I’m entranced.

I wore a mask of caring,
To wash away the dirt,
I purged you of your innocence,
I broke you, and it hurt.

You will be the catalyst,
You will be my prey.
I will be the anti-Christ, and you will save the day.
Every part of you it whispered,
to my body, to my mind.
This is deeper than a passion, more serious a crime.

I wore a mask of caring,
To wash away the dirt,
I purged you of your innocence,
I broke you, and it hurt.

You will be the catalyst,
You will be my prey.
I will be the anti-Christ, and you will save the day.
Every part of you it whispered,
to my body, to my mind.
This is deeper than a passion, more serious a crime.

I eat roses by the dozen,
Pluck your petals, watch you bleed,
Through the thorns you are forgotten,
I move away as you recede.

You will be the catalyst,
You will be my prey.
I will be the anti-Christ, and you will save the day.
Every part of you it whispered,
to my body, to my mind.
This is deeper than a passion, more serious a crime.

Every part of me is a liar,
Every motion, Every word.
I stoke your feelings like a fire,
Play your heartstrings ’til it hurts.

I pluck your petals ever slowly,
Something wicked is in the wine,
I lick you wounds ever so gently,
I stroke your confidence and mind.

I wore a mask of caring,
To wash away the dirt,
I purged you of your innocence,
I broke you, and it hurt.

I eat roses by the dozen,
Pluck your petals, watch you bleed,
Through the thorns you are forgotten,
I move away as you recede.

I eat roses by the dozen,
Pluck your petals, watch you bleed,
Through the thorns you are forgotten,
I move away as you recede.

You will be the catalyst,
You will be my prey.
I will be the anti-Christ, and you will save the day.
Every part of you it whispered,
to my body, to my mind.
This is deeper than a passion, more serious a crime.

I wore a mask of caring,
To wash away the dirt,
I purged you of your innocence,
I broke you, and it hurt.

I eat roses by the dozen,
Pluck your petals, watch you bleed,
Through the thorns you are forgotten,
I move away as you recede.

I eat roses by the dozen,
Pluck your petals, watch you bleed,
Through the thorns you are forgotten,
I move away as you recede.

PERFECT (FLAWLESS MIX)

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that will hold my hand

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that can understand

As I stumble into empty spaces,
Her perfection leaves me blind.
I’m cold when I am not around her,
Warm when I am at her side.

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that can understand

She dances like a wild flower.
Floating on a sea of black,
She’s painting with her perfect figure.
Destroys the floor and leaves her mark.

I am not a perfect person.
I have flaws and I have scars.
I’m embarrassed by your adoration.
In love with everything you are.

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that can understand

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that can understand

I have kissed the perfect woman.
I have touched her supple breast.
I succumb to all she offers.
Let her run me through her tests.

I have met the perfect woman.
I have met the perfect friend.
Someone that can see what I see.
Someone that can understand

She dances like a wild flower.
Floating on a sea of black,
She’s painting with her perfect figure.
Destroys the floor and leaves her mark.
