Track Name: Pink Elephants
Facing demons in the darkness, race against the hands of time
Spinning around the dial, tightening slowly
Throat closes, white knuckles
Tears of anguish, Lucifer chuckles
Sinking further, fog & shadow
Climbing the walls, always falling down & out
Lost & found a deeper well
Stagnant water drowning sorrows
Swallow poison

Closet skeletons, pink elephants,
Venomous snakes lying in wait (2x)

Left for dead on the battlefield, shallow grave
Cries for help, pleas for mercy
Know they won't be answered
Haunting echoes in the distance
Being followed, creeping footsteps
Stop to listen, must've been the wind
You tell yourself but don't believe it
Deafening silence, hear your heart pounding
Gasping for breath, in the twilight there's a signpost up ahead,
Thrusting fists, still insist you seen a ghost

Closet skeletons, pink elephants,
Venomous snakes lying in wait (2x)
Track Name: Blood Money
Don't say there's no escape
No way home is not the same
You have to get ahead or you'll be left behind
Like the rest of them, running out of places to hide

Blood money, blood blood money
Everybody's becoming so hungry
Trust no one, trust nobody
If they try to sell you something

We're wasting what we're making its
Taking its toll & we're paying
Impatient frustration & still can't shake that sensation
We're waiting as prey saying this is our fate
When the day comes, when the line's drawn
The question becomes which side you're on
Blood money, blood blood money
Everybody's becoming so hungry
Trust no one, trust nobody
If they try to sell you something
Track Name: Fallen Angels
Take a shot, scratch the itch
Cursed priest, hexed witch
Creatures of habit, slaves to the grind
Need to escape, change your mind &
Feed the monkey, chase the dragon,
Turning on & off the wagon
If you quit now, you'll never win
A chance to spin the wheel again

God won't save us from the fiery furnace
On the road less traveled with the fallen angels

Burn, fade....

It's better to burn than fade
Its all charades anyway
The first cut's the deepest but the last hurts worst
See the light fade to black
Don't look down, can't go back
Cards were dealt, magic tricks
The deck's been stacked, take your pick

God won't save us from the fiery furnace
On the road less traveled with the fallen angels
Track Name: S.O.S.
When I was a child, I believed in magic
Born to be wild, can you imagine?
Told I'd understand it more when I was older
But I need a hand & to cry on a shoulder
That was back then, & now its so late
There's nothing left to do but sit here & wait
For the shit to hit the fan, dire straits, on fire in the frying pan

Same old shit different day,
Life is a bitch then you die so they say
Its the same old same shit different day
I remember when it wasn't this way

When I was a child, I believed in magic
Born to be wild, can you imagine?
Told I'd understand it more when I got older
But I need a hand & to cry on a shoulder

Same old shit different day,
Life is a bitch then you die so they say
Its the same old same shit different day
I remember when it wasn't this way

Same old shit different day,
Life is a bitch then you die so they say
Its the same old same shit every day
I remember when, it wasn't this, wasn't this way
Track Name: All Alone
Let's go somewhere we speak freely
talk is cheap, seeing's believing
Come from nothing, among fungus,
Quietly, people are sleeping.
Cover up or you'll catch something
Butterfly's pinned wings

All of this has happened before. No one there to help me anymore.
I'm not gonna make it on my own. Now I know I'll always be alone.

Fly away or die trying, caged song bird crying
Save the best, make it last, hope the worst is in the past
Strike a match to light a spark, burns your fingers in the dar
At first it hurts, I guess you must
Get used to it, your eyes adjust.
Get used to it, get used to it, I guess you must get used to it.
Get used to it, get used to it, I guess you must get used to it.
Used to get confused, who to trust? What to do?
Just relax- don't resist-
Obey instincts, think they let you choose?

All of this has happened before. No one there to help me anymore.
I'm not gonna make it on my own. Now I know I'll always be alone.
All alone, all alone, all alone, all alone

All of this has happened before. No one there to help me anymore.
I'm not gonna make it on my own. Now I know I'll always be alone.
Track Name: Black & Blue
How long can you hold your breath? Blindfold & a cigarette.
Gunpowder & Zippo fuel, powerful & beautiful.
One way ticket outta here, liar, crocodile tears-
I remember what you said, never going to forget.

Promise to come back soon. Turning blue in a black room.
You promised to come back soon, turning blue, in a black room.

Funny looking back on it, young & dumb & coming quick.
Fall down you get up again, thought that it would never end.
Now among the walking dead, see it waiting up ahead.
Maybe it was always there- think its more than I can bear.

Promise to come back soon. Turning blue in a black room.
Promise to come back soon. Turning blue in a black room.

Wonder what the future holds? Pretty corpses getting old.
Memories of fantasy, silly little hopes & dreams.
Love it then you let it go. Shove it down your throat & choke.
Wishful thinking ends in tears.
One day we'll all face our fears.

Promise to come back soon. Turning blue in a black room.
Promise to come back soon.
Turning blue in a black room, turning blue in a black room,
turning blue in a black room.
You promised to come back soon, turning blue in a black room.

How long can you hold your breath?
Funny looking back on it.
Thought that it would never end.
I remember what you said.
Never going to forget.
Love it then you let it go.
Shove it down your throat & choke.
Wishful thinking ends in tears.

One day we'll all face our fears.
Track Name: What A Waste
I'm not afraid
Nothin to lose
Knew all along
Neck in the noose
Growing calloused
Going to die
Full of malice
Don't know why
Bottle in front of me
Frontal lobotomy
Smoke what burns
Turn to the worst things
Once the best is gone
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure

Oh what a waste, oh what a waste,
Oh what a waste, oh what a waste,
Oh what a waste, oh what a waste,
Oh what a waste, oh what a waste, oh what a waste.

Turn to the worst things
Once the best is gone
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure
The search for the cure
Will spread more infection to the pure.
Track Name: Halfsleeper
All the parts of me that lived inside
Are drowning in the sea of waking life
They don't know their colors don't belong outside
They don't know their colors don't belong

Until they're spread across the open road
Til they're spread across the asphalt on the open road
Til they're streaming in the wind like cassette tape or jellyfish
Long dark veins and records playing memories

All the things we yelled don't mean a thing
When we're spinning out on dark and metal wind
When we're flying like blue mary's angels through shattered glass
When we find that tall dark shadow waiting there with outstretched hands

He has given you a dress of red and me a skin of gray
We'll be twisting here for hours til the light will bring us day

And we're spread across the open road
And we're spread across the asphalt on the open road
And we're streaming in the wind like cassette tape or jellyfish
Long dark veins and records playing memories
Track Name: Alive
It happened so fast I was taken by surprise
Like running in molasses from the glowing red eyes then
Explosion, the walls caved in, just a blanket of dust & silence
Paralyzed listening to the scratching noises getting closer
It's cold & wet hear chittering sounds of teeth & licking
Think I can feel something tickling my feet

Buried alive, Buried alive, Buried alive I'm being buried alive.
Buried alive, Buried alive, Buried alive I'm being buried alive.

Can't seem to stop the bleeding,
Slowly starving watching vampires feeding
The nights keep getting longer wake up weaker leeches growing stronger
Had a chance to heed the warnings, laughted in the face of danger
And it laughed right back
Mourning every morning as the last die cast.

Eaten alive, Eaten alive, Eaten alive I'm being eaten alive.
Eaten alive, Eaten alive, Eaten alive I'm being eaten alive.
Track Name: Birds & Bees
Nerve endings & chemistry, let them get the best of me.
Careful what you wish for- the Good Witch? Virgin Whore?
“Gaze deep in my eyes,” says the spider to the fly.
A moth drawn to the fire. All the pretty ones are liars.

Birds sing. Bees sting. Flowers from dirt. Trees burning.
Sticky, squirming, twisting, turning dangerous curves. Fair warning.

Have to laugh or else you cry. Older, wiser, dead inside.
Once naive- an easy mark.
Small fries feed the sharks.
Make believe its just pretend- cliché story, tragic end.
Broken heart shattered stone. Tattered skin, brittle bones.

Birds sing. Bees sting. Flowers from dirt. Trees burning.
Sticky, squirming, twisting, turning dangerous curves. Fair warning.
