Track Name: Weight of the sins
Seems like its time to sever again
Winter displays its usual grin
Cold is the blood that runs through your veins
Confessions are choked by the weight of the sins

Poorly tied knots will always come loose
Every moment hung by a thread
Will it get lonely a the end of a noose
Some of these things are better left unsaid

When you let go you know that it’s easy to walk away

When you let go you know that it’s easy to walk away
From all that has been said and done
The memories are all but gone
You look back now
And all you’ll find
Is that there’s nothing left behind

The deeper you go the colder it gets
But cold doesn’t come as bad as regrets

When you let go you know that it’s easy to walk away

When you let go you know that it’s easy to walk away
From all that has been said and done
The memories are all but gone
You look back now
And all you’ll find
Is that there’s nothing left
Track Name: Skin Graft
You give out promises you can’t keep
You make mistakes but I’m the one that feels cheap
I always end up under your control
My heart is burning like a lump of coal

And it burns


I don’t know why I keep coming back
Causes every time I do you make me feel whack
I keep on wishing that you’d someday change
And this is something that I can’t explain

But it burns
Track Name: If you love me
If you , still think, you love me,
Won’t you, come on, and show me
If you think you love me,
Won’t you show me
Sock it to me!

Hold back think twice we’ll make it through
You know that I was made for lovin’ you
Track Name: Lie to my face
You lie to my face
And you always deny
That you lie to my face
You cheat, you con,
You burry yourself in your lies

Misleading, scheming for personal gain
Undermining, insidious plans to attain
To attain what you want

And you lie to my face
You always deny
That you lie to my face
You cheat, you con,
You burry your pride with your lies

And you lie to my face
You always deny
And you lie to my face
You cheat, you con,
You burry your pride with your lies
Track Name: One more hit
One more hit


Turn around, don’t look the other way
Cause they’ll make you stay
You’ll be going back for more
And we all know that when it starts
You just can’t stop it any more
It’ll leave you crying
Begging on the floor

One more hit to ease the pain
Then what else is there to gain?
You are well aware
You’re fate is bleak
You’re in too deep

You take it slow, you take it fast
No one else will give a damn so make it last
Here you go again for the thousandth time
Stepping on your ego for nickels and dimes
The craving starts, there’s nothing left
It’s up to you, to fool yourself
So you go on crawling back scrounging for more
Powerless and faded like a worn-out whore

One more hit to ease the pain
Then what else is there to gain?
You are well aware
You’re fate is bleak
You’re in too deep



Cause you want it, and you need it
You love it, said you need it, got to have it now

One more hit to ease the pain
Then what else is there to gain?
You are well aware
You’re fate is bleak
You’re in too deep
Track Name: Between the lines
I can read between the lines
I’m looking for a sign
But I am running out of time
Track Name: Secrets
Hidden deep within
The secrets we conceal
Aren’t safely locked away

And anything you’d find
Buried in my mind
Could haunt you all the same
When reason slowly fades away


You feel it taking over
You feel it pressing down
And you’re caving in
Feel it taking all that is left of you
All that you have ever been

You feel it taking over
Track Name: The peaceful pill
Take my hand and I will lead you to a place with no pain
But be sure there is no coming back and there is nothing to retain
So if you’re ill then I can help
Just take this pill and let yourself
Escape from all your angst and aches
But do you bare all that that it takes to say

That you’re going to swallow it down
and then you move on
Then you go gone
And you’re drawn
Drawn into the light
On the other side

you go gone
and you’re thrown
thrown into the bright
of eternal night


If you’re bleak and you bleed then I can help you to drain
Leap into doubt in world of unpredictable terrain
So if you wish then help yourself
To a capsule of deliverance
That I could slip into your hand
Will you give up your final stand and say?

That you’re going to swallow it down
and then you move on
Then you go gone
And you’re drawn
Drawn into the light
On the other side
Track Name: Stand out
Time is flying by as I go down the same old streets again
Looking up to see this sorry sky
Dripping down upon my feet I hear the crackle of the rain
Then lightning strikes the corner of my eye

And tonight I stand out in the rain
Cause tonight the thunder I will tame

The water rises rapidly it pours an unrelenting strain
Floating by are echoes of our lives
But even though the current cleanses,
It doesn’t wash away the stains
Of relics from our unforgiving lies

And tonight I stand out in the rain
Cause tonight the thunder I will tame
Track Name: Mai 2012
We should think about
What we really want
We think about changing
We think about changing
