Track Name: Bright Light
I once was sent an angel
that came from the glacial land.
In its beauty I marvelled
for all my beaus had come from sand.
In awe of its radiance, creeping barefoot
I watched it walk.
In gracious indifference,
one thousand words and
it didn't talk.

Shine brightly, shine brightly.
I'm flying, I might be.

Its words they floated softly,
Air too coarse for their brush
And so it continued thusly,
My house of cards,
My King high flush.

Shine brightly, shine brightly.
I'm flying, I might be.

Brightest beacon in existence,
Coax me softly from the distance.
Track Name: One Step
Fashionably hard to sleep
Too sad, too bleak
They take but don't have much to give
They choose, they pick

Ancient books too thick
So the pictures do the trick

All dressed in black, aha
Look down to hide your eyes are different colours
One step, two steps aha
Take another step and i won't say I'm sorry

Sympathy's so hard to win
When the skin's too thin
Their wicked ways so hard to scheme
They claw, they grin

Before you lose the grip
Entropy's the trick

And the sound of ticking bombs
Invades their heads to push out hope
Track Name: Lovelust
Stricken with amnesia
With blood upon my lips
Constricted by this fever
Locked in virginal bliss
I used to be a hunter
The very last of my kin
Sate this libidinous hunger
I am the seventh sin

Hey hey

Once I was a carnivore
With blood upon my lips
You're a fallen matador
Now blood runs from your hips
I used to be a hunter
The very last of my kin
Sate this libidinous hunger
I am the seventh sin

Hey hey

Fields are scarlet pools of nothing unrelenting
This molten blood lust I am feeling never venting
Track Name: Skylarks
Lost inside this cave I'll always owe you blood my friend
Follow the red trail I'll always owe you blood my friend

Pick one of the excuses and I will
If I spend a day alone then I'm in need
From a lack of a better concept it's a thrill
In case it's hard to notice i'm always keen

Lost look on my face, well always after you my friend
Hungry for more prey, well always after you my friend

Let them catch up with our game
Let them catch up with our game
Driven by despair and mess
We're lost between the lines I guess

Pick one of the excuses and I will
If I spend a day alone then I'm in need
From a lack of a better concept it's a thrill
In case it's hard to notice i'm always keen

All the skylarks outside pity me,
Sorry sight
Track Name: Hey
Hey hey hey,
Take me out tonight
Remember, we won't get younger than we're now
The streets are dead for us,
The lights turn green with lust
Hey hey hey Let's be giants you and I

Hey hey hey,
I'll let you break my hourglass
I promise if you're gentle I won't make a fuss
So push away the tide
With every grain of sand
Hey hey hey Let's find a place to hide
Track Name: Dim Light
When the dusk turns the window into a mirror
I can see the brand of time on my chest
I look like I died, then came back to where I needn't be
And I'm trapped under the lifeless clouds heavy with strain

There's a strange smile about tomorrow
Soaked in sullen rain
There's a strange smile about tomorrow
Soaked in sullen, soaked in sullen...

The wings at my sides shrivelled up when I changed my ways
The sail, once so high, lost its grace
I don't want to die without any scars or noble wounds
One last wish to engrave in my tomb

There's a strange smile about tomorrow
Soaked in sullen rain
There;s a strange smile about tomorrow
Soaked in sullen, soaked in sullen...

In the dim light, when the stars come out
I'll climb to the roof to shake them down
Track Name: Different Songs
When you're scared of heights
You got to work it out
No one ever grows up in the Peter Pan Clan
When you're tired of lights
Come alive at night
Make everything look pretty
With the magic dust

Bye and bye we begin to sing
Two of us singing two different songs at the same time

I left my halo behind
Scentless poison sipping out
Will make me sleepwalk tonight
To the neverland
Through the window at night
I'll fly away from this town
Whispering cold goodnight
Beckoned by moonlight
Track Name: Golden Days
When youth wears you out
And persuades to grow old
When the friends are gone
Safe inside of their homes

In the corner of your memory I'll hide away
Humming songs that take you back to our golden days

Let the autumn sun
Sip through skin to the bones
Warming up the blood
Safe from turning to stone
Once we sailed the skies
Clothed in veils of clouds

In the corner of your memory I'll hide away
Humming songs that take you back to our golden days

This venom seems to bulge under your skin
Let me suck it out
Track Name: Lunaire
I'll try, I'll try to hide that smile
Your loss won't keep me satisfied
Aha, this cliff does look too high
I know, 'cause I stood where you stand now

So jump, jump with your arms spread wide
The view will make you feel alive
Aha, it's too late to change your mind
Your loss won't keep me satisfied

The bells will ring
The choir will sing
Your martyr ring
Won with a wink

It's time, it's time to count your crimes
Don't leave until you pay your fines
Aha, what a way to turn to dust
Your loss won't keep me satisfied

The bells will ring
The choir will sing
Your martyr ring
Won with a wink
Track Name: Edge of the Sea
I'll sail away on coastal tides
Where the moon floats on the sea
I taught myself to travel light
And how lonely it can be
And I got lost a hundred times
Or washed up on a beach
All shores are finally out of sight
I'll swim till I grow weak

Could I fall off the edge of the sea
Could I fall off the edge of the sea

I'll sail under the dying sun
It'll burn away the fear
And so I'll carry on my plight
Until the waves taste sweet

Could I fall off the edge of the sea
Could I fall off the edge of the sea
