Track Name: The Gloom
Endless gloom
To soothe the blue
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
In your grave
Blow out the candle
Seek out the waves
And let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
This is the gloom
This is the gloom
This is the gloom
Where friends die
Where birds sing
Where we go to sleep
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Endless gloom
Endless gloom
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Let it all consume you
Track Name: Poison
I have one regret
There was one thing left, I promised I wouldn't let you run out of breath
Poison fills your lungs, and I'm nearly out of the house
There's not much left to see, and I keep wondering, what's lurking in the trees
This time is it, I swear it
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where my soul goes to sleep
There was one thing left, place your hand on mine, let's forget this ever happened
I promised I wouldn't let you run out of breath
Poison fills your lungs, and I'm nearly to the car
There's not much left to see, and I keep on wondering if you've missed me
This time is it, I swear it
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where my soul goes to sleep
Poison filled your lungs, and I'm nearly to the grave
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where all souls go to sleep
This is where my heart goes to sleep
Track Name: Requiem
Last night I fell through the floor
And I saw you dressed in white
There was blood on your hands
And holes in your eyes
And there was nothing I could say or do
Last night I fell through the floor
There was blood on your hands, and holes in your eyes

I was trapped in a nightmare
and I wondered how I wound up here
I asked where you'd been all these years, but there was nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
Last night I fell through the floor
and it was only grey

Last night I fell through the floor
And I saw the blood on my hands
and I swear there was nothing I could say, nothing I could do
And I saw the blood on my hands
This time it was real, this time it was real
There was nothing I could say or do
Nothing I could say or do

(Years past and I swear I still hear them, I still see them, I still hear them cry, I still see them drown
All these memories, and all these histories
Where we got lost together
In the clock tower
By the frozen lake
We'd go there every afternoon
I'm the one who needed it most, and there was nothing you could say or do
Because I lost you
And you lost me too
I'm leaving this place and I'm never coming home)

Last night I fell through the floor
And there was nothing I could say
There was nothing I could do
And there was nothing I could say or do

And there was nothing I could say or do
Yeah, there was nothing I could say or do
Yeah, there was nothing I could say or do
And there was nothing I could say or do
Track Name: (untitled)
i've been doing a lot of bad things
while away from your comfort and your homeliness
i've been gone so long i've forgotten how it feels
to lay down in a bed you can call your own
and i'll start to forget all the names and faces
i've met on the way
and you'll be an angel, slipping away,
and i'll be a demon, in the back of your mind
the familiar aching, of being on my own
it's all just waiting, waiting to fall
and you'll pick up the mess,
and i'll call you and tell you all the things i've done
while alone and in solitude, and all the skin on my bones
will fall to the ground and i'll bury my self six feet under ground
and all you'll have to wonder is where you went so damn wrong
and you'll be an angel, slipping away,
and i'll be a demon, in the back of your mind
the familiar aching, of being on my own
Track Name: A Demon In a Lockbox
I've seen everything
But I have seen nothing
I remember it like yesterday
You were there, too
But you did not see me
We didn't know each other
We were only witnesses to the same screen
Brainwashed like fucking animals
One day I fell asleep, and never woke up
We're prisoners of our own hell
I've seen your hell
It'll never amount to my own
Now I float from hell to hell
Nothing ever changes
I'm a demon in a lockbox
Sealed tightly under your bed
I am your nightmare
I am your hell
But you have never seen my hell
And you will never know, that you are my hell
I've seen everything
But I have seen nothing
I've seen everything
But I haven't seen tomorrow
And that is my hell
The sun is bleeding
Only you are my hell
Because I don't know you
