Ritual 05:29
Breath on my back Black marine stalemate swell Stealing thunder Hunt me Your flame-driven words Are the words That consternation won Open a rift Lacerate novelty Visceral moment Ought to Burn away the fragile remains Of a ceaseless ritual Dread and its ilk Necessitate A new reminder that Coming undone Is in nowadays A centerpiece A modern stage They want a witch To burn at the stake Don't say the truth isn't viable now How it suits you to say Heaven is out to get us Some golden light betrayed us Sympathetic to the void Waste at my heals Dark sunset in the horizon Honesty kills again Curse the speech of snakes Vapid tryst with thin air Talk about tomorrows On the grounds that it would last We both knew so no one asked Usurping memories Before they turn bitter And try to flee again Do you want me to pretend? Would it somehow hurt less? So here's where we stand All twisted by the complacency of the past I feel another dark ritual beginning I feel another dark ritual beginning I'm holding onto something that's not worth saving In my mind Stealing all my time

Hotel 04:24
Sun don't shine Through these old hotel room blinds Sentiments are lies Sanctions of the night We get by On our cinnamon and rye Mannequins and lines Don't trespass on our rite Is this evil? Is this wrong? No emotion No connection There's so much more here There's so much more here left for two emotion vampires Drag me along tonight I won't put up a fight I'm tired and it's futile This place will do what this place will do And people do what people do We're sinking on a burning ship Sailing for god knows where Spirit of the hunt Vicious animal of ire Garden of desire Why is this design? True love waits Or so they always say It always gets away When it seems it's in the way There's a search party Out in the woods again When they're up against the hunt They know how it'll end No justice, no sympathy In your heart You're knocking on the wrong door with that shit This is so corrupt But somehow they call it love

No Dawn 04:00
You're over-reacting again There are no grounds to anything You say or do you're plagued by your deities The world you see Is not the world I see So "let the spirit in", you say I think of the pills and alcohol inside of you No dawn before us No dawn after us Man after man God after god Carve out the sky Burn out the sun Hark! The angels sing An ancient choir From the floorboards from the wall If it's in your blood it's in my blood as well A path ahead A path that no ones fit to travel all alone And I don't trust the angels on your side I'm coming too You want to let it take you I won't let it take you I know what you've been through I've been there with you You see a crossroads I'm seeing one road Love after love Same rituals True, it seems So hard to find When you are old And I am blind The truth is ever-so fleeting When no one says what they feel So listen to me when I say That I will always love you No matter what happens between us No matter what goes unsaid Don't fear the end I'll be there too Keeping killers away from the door.

Mothic 05:20
Hounds of doom, Have left us in disrepair, Shaking and scared. Fearful, without a promise, Of a cleansing ritual. Is it really my body that moves me? I know it’s my breath coming out of me, But if that’s really you I see when I see you, Why do I feel as if I’m caught up in limbo? While I'm lucid let me say, That I'm afraid for whatever reasons. Waking up again in a fit to black birds circling my bed. I’m always thinking of everything that can go wrong, Vicious shadows are stalking me down long halls, I can’t move, But I try to get through to you. I’ll fight the rituals, Salt of the sober, By they vile or chemical, Dead ring of clovers, I can’t prove, That I ever gave up, What I gave into. Why am I drawn to that which harms me? And why do I hurt those who I love, Don’t tell me we’re inherently evil. In this city of wolves you are the lamb, Holding onto old promises. Waiting for a knock on the door. You don’t want to hear it but, There’s something about your light.

Burial 05:09
Vandal in static passed me by. Cozened an art from a cynic’s eye A ghastly sigh of misaligned opportunity To thieve a comely triviality. Banish him! Oh lord I pray for banishment, He lives within me, Banish him, I want to feel like we used to, I want to dream like we used to. You said I failed to mention, How I would drag us down, But I tried to warn you, There’s a sepulcher at the bottom, Where no one should go. Chemical sigil to keep the dark at bay, I want to see through your bright eyes, Eidolon you’re see-through and thin, But you please me so, Would you rid me of these woes? How long does this emptiness last, Will the fear ever pass. I need a tether to keep me here In orbit On this strange, strange rock.
