Track Name: Sick Device
Love is a sick device,
Yeah love is a sick device.
But I forgot to mention….
Did I forget to mention…?

Blood on your fingers, are you paranoid yet?
Don’t say a thing, girl, it’s a battle I guess.
Jenna you’re so hard when you stare in my face.
Over and over words just slip away.
We’re falling out, I’ve seen the day when it slips away from me.
No more this calm destructive fate.

Love is a sick device,
Yeah love is a sick device.
But I forgot to mention….
Did I forget to mention…?

You look like a stranger in another girl’s clothes.
Pointing a finger at a pale white ghost.
But that’s just a mirror, tell me what do you see?
Are you estranged by your reality?

Love is a sick device,
Yeah love is a sick device.
But I forgot to mention….
Did I forget to mention…?
Track Name: Juno
Our words are fading heart of the storm,
I’m calling "don’t let go" but my voice is just a memory.
We’re mirrors of it falling apart,
And soon I feel like I don’t what it was for.
And when I’m talking to myself in a dream,
I call out "don’t let go" but there’s nothing left in front of me.
The blood returning to us, I come back and I feel like I can’t do this anymore.

Burn our file, burn our existential divide.
Look at my face, Juno I might be passing away.
Cut out your mind, see it in all symbiotic decline.
Murder fear, Juno I don’t even know if I’m here.
Our words are fading heart of the storm,
I’m calling "don’t let go" but my voice is just a memory.
We’re mirrors of it falling apart,
And soon I feel like I don’t what it was for.
And when I’m talking to myself in a dream,
I call out "don’t let go" but there’s nothing left in front of me.
The blood returning to us, I come back and I feel like I can’t do this anymore.

Fear no more, the antibodies have to let it go.
Pain is nothing and we’re coming back from beyond hope.
Fear no more, the antibodies have to let it go.
Pain is nothing and we’re coming back from beyond hope.

Burn our file. Burn our old vestigial lie.
Replicate. Juno, this dream becomes your escape.
Look where I lie, watch my remains disappear in the light.
See the shape of what’s to come, Juno it’s not too late.

Our words are fading heart of the storm,
I’m calling "don’t let go" but my voice is just a memory.
We’re mirrors of it falling apart,
And soon I feel like I don’t what it was for.
And when I’m talking to myself in a dream,
I call out "don’t let go" but there’s nothing left in front of me.
The blood returning to us, I come back and I feel like I can’t do this anymore.
Track Name: The Mask
Bring my harrow, I stand here facing the outside.
Drink my sorrow; these tears that soaked you every night.
Shall I follow? Is what I’m chasing just a lie?
Or am I harrowed for lesser beings?

When they stand upon the field as the skies are turning grey.
And nothing is revealed only nothing left to say.
I wore it like a mask, and I knew it was in vain.
But I forgot to ask, have you ever felt this way?

Bring my harrow, I cannot face these things I hide.
There's no tomorrow; No arms to hold you, so dead inside.
Shall I borrow? Oh my despair is but a lie.
Plagiarized sorrow from lesser beings.

When they stand upon the field as the skies are turning grey.
And nothing is revealed only nothing left to say.
I wore it like a mask, and I knew it was in vain.
But I forgot to ask, have you ever felt this way?
Track Name: Girlfriends
I know you're just a girl who wants to be with girls,
But I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
Oh she's just so pure, I do not fuck like her,
But I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
Goddess, there's no cure. I long to hear the words,
that I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
Stand beside me girl, stare darkly at the world,
And I will be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.

You're so fey, turn away, let's get out of it.
Lose your mind, curse our time, bring me to the ground.
In the car, in the dark, she's still on your lips.
My heart is in exile, I curse the life I found.
Voices fade, let's not wait, just get on with it.
Check the mirror, dry your tears, and bring me to the ground.
In the car, in the dark, thought I caught a glimpse
Of possible embers.

Oh fuck she's just some girl, what do you see in her?
When I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
I thought we were for sure, I guess we never were.
Still I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
I swear I will endure, I feel so immature,
But I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.
Your hand locked into hers, you both look so demure,
But I could be your boyfriend, let me be your boyfriend.

There’s a pain in my heart, and it runs through my veins,
And it pounds in my chest, and it screams out your name.
Will I ever be yours? Tell me over again,
If our essence is abstract are we getting out of phase?

If only I was born a girl, You’d be with me for sure,
And I would be your girlfriend, we could just be girlfriends.
Oh and rest assured, I would not fuck like her,
And I would be your girlfriend, we could just be girlfriends.
We’d stare out at the world, by hand locked into yours,
And I would be your girlfriend, we could just be girlfriends.
But deep inside it hurts, for I cannot be a girl,
But I want to be your girlfriend, if only we were girlfriends.

There’s a pain in my heart, and it runs through my veins,
And it pounds in my chest, and it screams out your name.
Will I ever be yours? Tell me over again,
If our essence is flawed, I can only look away.
Track Name: Modern Youth
You took me down with your hair all tangled.
You put the fire in me.
I felt no calm but the calm of anger.
You put the fire in me.

And when it’s cold outside I’m gonna save it for you.
And when it’s dark outside, we’re only halfway through.
And when it’s cold outside I’m gonna save it for you
And create another ending.

I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.
Hearts cast into the void then you called.
Am I getting out of phase with you?
And with your mortal fate, does it matter anyway?
Slowly you have been replaced. I’ll wake up, I’ll find a way.
I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.

I searched for words but my voice was strangled.
You took the fire from me.
Look in my eyes, do my eyes see anger?
You took the fire from me.

And when it’s cold outside I’m gonna save it for you.
And when it’s dark outside, we’re only halfway through.
And when it’s cold outside I’m gonna save it for you
And create another ending.

I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.
Hearts cast into the void then you called.
Am I getting out of phase with you?
And with your mortal fate, does it matter anyway?
Slowly you have been replaced. I’ll wake up, I’ll find a way.
I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.

I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.
Hearts cast into the void then you called.
Am I getting out of phase with you?
And with your mortal fate, does it matter anyway?
Slowly you have been replaced. I’ll wake up, I’ll find a way.
I wanna feel this modern youth call
When I’m talking in a daze with you.
Track Name: There Is Something Wrong With Us
So you think that I’m a failure and you’re right.
What about you? What about you?
If you think that I’m just callous and unkind,
What about you? What about you?
So you chalked it up to me being half alive.
What about you? What about you?
You said everyone would just leave me behind.
What about you? What about you?

She, she always comes between.
It never hurt before and I don’t know what it means.
She, she always comes for me.
She’s calling out for war like a prejudice machine.

Maybe I’m too gone to justify.
What about you? What about you?
And you look at me with venom in your eyes.
What about you? What about you?

I’m just a shadow of myself, and now that I know that
Maybe you should turn around. Maybe you should turn around.
I’m just a shadow of myself, and now that I know that
Maybe you should turn around and look in the mirror.

So you think I’m filled with vanity inside.
What about you? What about you?
If I’m turning into something I don’t like,
What about you? What about you?
If there was nothing but resentment in my mind,
What about you? What about you?
And I could never understand for I was blind.
What about you? What about you?

She, she always comes between.
It never hurt before and I don’t know what it means.
She, she always comes for me.
She’s calling out for war and I know it’s my defeat.

And it haunts me in the sleeplessness of night.
What about you? What about you?
And if you think there’s something wrong with me you’re right.
What about you? What about you?

I’m just a shadow of myself, and now that I know that
Maybe you should turn around. Maybe you should turn around.
I’m just a shadow of myself, and now that I know that
Maybe you should turn around and look in the mirror.
Track Name: Blood
Let our girlfriends sleep together,
We are blind and we're losing our way.
They are young, they will live forever
In a finite and certain decay.
Let our girlfriends sleep together,
We are blind and we're losing our way.
They are young they will not remember
All the years spent in silent decay.

Let our girlfriends sleep together,
We are blind and we're losing our way.
They are young, they will live forever
In a weightless and falling decay.
We, as girlfriends, sleep together,
We are young and we're losing our way.
In the light we will live forever
In the silence that follows decay.

She kissed me, there was blood.
Thought I'd drink from her forever,
And I wanted to lick the blood from her face.
We're tangled and undone.
Thought of holding her forever,
And I wanted to lick the blood from her face.

Return it . Departed. A Goddess. Destroy it.
Invert it. Iconic. Perverted. Abort it.
Burn It. Goddamnit. Discard it. Destroy it.
Psychotic. Demented. I'm damaged. Immortal.
Track Name: Human
Do you wanna try to hurt me?
See if I'm still alive.
Do you think that you could reach me?
Well there ain't nobody here inside.
Do you hope that you could find me?
Seems to me I've lost myself.
Don't you wish that you could hate me?
I would if I was someone else.

Remember the last time when I was still human,
Put you in the past I was fixated on ruin.
I tore it apart and then I threw it away.
I pulled out my heart so I could lose all of me.
And I don't know a reason that it would matter now.
And I don't know a reason it should ever matter again.
But I keep on spinning, I don't die,
So I guess I'm still human.

Do you wanna try to hurt me?
See if I'm still alive.
Do you think that you could reach me?
Well there ain't nobody here inside.
Do you hope that you could find me?
Seems to me I've lost myself.
Don't you wish that you could hate me?
I do because I am myself.

Remember the last time when I was still human,
Put you in the past I was fixated on ruin.
I tore it apart and then I threw it away.
I pulled out my heart so I could lose all of me.
And I don't know a reason that it would matter now.
And I don't know a reason it should ever matter again.
But I keep on spinning, I don't die,
So I guess I'm still human.
Track Name: The Passerby
I only see myself in reflections in the eyes
Of the strangers that I meet; darkened glances in the night.
I am the passerby. I am the passerby.

And I feel like I'm awake and it haunts me all the time,
But it's like it follows me, like it's something deep inside.
I am the passerby. I am the passerby.

There's strength within my heart
But I'm buried 'neath the sea.
And although I'm not five fathoms yet
They do not follow me.
So I ask if I'm awake, staring up towards the light
Through the milky water's haze
There is something that I can't find.
I'm running through the forest,
I don't know where I've been.
And although they stand before me,
They're like ghosts that I can't see.
They do not make amends, no they do not make amends.
They do not make amends, no they do not make amends.
They'll catch up.

When I see my hollow face I just bury it inside,
For the answer isn't me. It's the place in which I hide
I am the passerby. I am the passerby.

And I'll take it to my grave, it is with me all the time.
Though they do not follow me, an escape is hard to find.
I am the passerby. I am the passerby.

Goddamnit. I found it, I cut it with my teeth.
It's coming faster like cancer metastasized through dreams.
I've got your murder. Step further,
These etchings on the wall are all your answers;
Advances in this game I can't recall.

I'm spinning in the vagueness. I see it in my mind;
I'm the coral 'neath the waves.
There's still something that I can't find.
The streets are vague and cold here.
They do not follow me.
And they think they're in control but they do not follow me,
And they do not make amends...

They do not make amends...
Track Name: My Sister, My Twin
War. What am I starting it for?
I've laid my allies to rest, and so I now I want more.
More. This means I’m changing for sure.
I close my own eyes. My sister, my twin,
We’re off to wage war.

And now I’m old, I’m worn, I've passed.
We’re living in reverse; a death at last.
And so we just undress and feel the earth,
No beat beneath your breast,
My mirror twin, be silent.

Even as she cries, I don’t mind.
Let’s do it in cycles.
Sister, the lord of the flies.
I don’t mind, let’s do it in cycles.
Our faces pale white.
I don’t mind let’s do it in cycles.
You were the lord of the flies.
I don’t mind, we’ll reanimate our birth.

War. I can’t hold off anymore.
I failed my allies, I’ll bring the dawn of the impure.
The cure. Oh sister there is no cure.
I chain myself to my dark female twin,
Ellie Noir, this is war.

And now we’re bored, we choke, we gasp.
We read a final verse; a death at last.
Our bodies lay undressed upon the earth,
No movement. Has He left?
My mirror twin, be silent.

Even as she cries, I don’t mind.
Let’s do it in cycles.
Sister, the lord of the flies.
I don’t mind, let’s do it in cycles.
Our faces pale white.
I don’t mind let’s do it in cycles.
You were the lord of the flies.
I don’t mind, we’ll reanimate our birth.
Track Name: Gallows
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.

They're tearing you away and you are thinking it over.
Our bodies fill the waves, it's like our blood is the ocean.
They come to me in masks and restrain my hands.
I want to look away but I can't.

You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You found another way.
Trapped in mortal chains,
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You watched the pagan martyrs take it all in vain.

Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.

There's blood within my veins that won't remain when it's over.
Our relics are just shapes down in the depths of the ocean.
They're tying up my hands, in a daze I stand.
I want to turn away but I can't.

You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You made a passionate offering; kill yourself.
You found another way.
Trapped in mortal chains,
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You spilled the blood of an angel.
You watched the pagan martyrs take it all in vain.

Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Take me to the gallows, eyes lined dramatic.
Track Name: Haunt You
I'm walking in a daze and the cold has embodied
All of the things that I can't hide.
All of the things that I can't hide from it; my failure.
I'm staring into space with no thoughts, I've abandoned
All of the things that I can't hide.
All of the things that I can't hide from it...

This just isn't made up, this just is a start.
This just is a storm and now we're at the heart.
We cover our eyes with our vanity bare,
No traces of life and I'm filled with despair.
I just fix my makeup, my ghost is a spark,
Just dust in the light and I feel it depart.
Before me your eyes dim and vacantly stare.
I'm coming to as I take my place in this nowhere.

I'm waiting for the feeling of cold and I panic.
All of the ways that I can't hide.
All of the ways that I can't hide from it.
I’m fading out.
I'm buried in the wasteland of old, and I fought it/
All of the ways that I can't hide.
All of the ways that I can't hide from it...

I’m hopelessly vacant, my touch has no spark.
This feels like a coma, this absence is stark.
I'm dead where I lie, am I not even there?
No light in my eyes as I vacantly stare.
I’m drugged when I wake up, my blood pulsing hard.
I can’t even feel you, we’re light years apart.
I see no horizon, I’m caught in the glare
Of apathy as I take my place in this nowhere.

This just isn't made up, this just is a start.
This just is a rise and now we're at the heart.
Absorbed by the lights, I am barely aware
Of my mortal chains. I am too gone to care.
These dresses remain as a vestige of our
Regressive personas that took life as art.
I wouldn't define us as devil-may-care,
We were just alive to exist then and there.
Our death is a fade out, we’re born to depart,
Our bodies deformed by the vanishing arch.
Crescendos now rise as I reach through the air.
You shallowly sigh like I'm not even there.
No voices remain as I summon the power
To exit the frame and go back to the start.
My absence revived, I said I am the heir
Of apathy as I take my place in this nowhere.
