Track Name: Overthrow
Circles in the sky
the stronghold waited for the day
but hoped it'd never come
do we trust the ignorance?
or run with our guts
things we've never seen before
crash down and grip the earth

I am the devil
come watch me burn.
we live.

They'll wreck our train of thought

I am the devil
come watch me burn
I am the devil
come watch me burn

ohh the trees will sway
the only sign of life in a barron land
where the colours from above
had passed. x2

Time will pass
trees will still sway with the wind
the stronghold will slowly lose sight
it will happen again.

confusion hits,
as our heavens open. x4

It happened in an instant
the question still lingers:
do we trust the ignorance?
or run with our guts
things we've never seen before
crash down and grip the earth

I am the devil
come watch me burn.
we live.

They'll wreck our train of thought

I am the devil
come watch me burn
I am the devil
come watch me burn
Track Name: This Boy, Swindler
Take a shot, I bet you miss
we're standing twenty apart
one turns early to catch a glimpse of a cheat
one shot is then taken and everything fades
the blood spills and the curse is found
the smoke and mirrors are clear
the one sneaking behind
sound exterior but lying beneath is a snake

One shot baby I'll let you have it
please pull that knife out from my back
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones
one shot i'll let you have it
one shot, one shot
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones

It's like hiding behind glass
we see strait through you
you've cheated the whole way through this fucking mess
now everything is catching up, it's catching up
you only have one chance so make it right

The smoke and mirrors are all clear
we see strait through you

and then the race is on

One shot baby I'll let you have it
please pull that knife out from my back
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones
one shot I'll let you have it
one shot, one shot
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones

take a shot I bet you miss
we're standing twenty apart
I turned early to catch a glimpse
of one god damn cheat

One shot baby I'll let you have it
please pull that knife out from my back
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones
one shot I'll let you have it
one shot, one shot
one shot and you're lock stock rattlin' bones

One shot baby
that's all I'll let you have
one shot baby
Track Name: Callin' the Shots
Yeah! I'm not coming home
you've got me talking as if i know i will
please take me away and break my lungs
you peek through the gaps of your fingers
the site makes you wanna run away
we aren't done,
you keep pushing this world of filth.

don't let this torment put you six feet underground

Where's your faith now?
Where's your faith now?
Where's your faith now?
you should never back down
when your backs against the wall
keep singing
When you've got nothing
when you've got no hope
when it all falls through
you should never back down
when your backs against the wall
keep singing,
your backs against the wall

Yeah! I'm not coming home
and he'll take you by the hand
wake up and break the sky
do what you can
you peek through the gaps of your fingers
the site makes you wanna run away
we aren't done,
You keep pushing this world of filth.

bound to a stake
the sun won't lie
but don't lose it
compose yourself
don't let him take what's yours
he's got it, the world won't know

we are'nt done.
You're pushing me over the top
please give me some leeway
you ain't the one callin' the shots
your open vein eyes are spinning
they're spinning all the forgery
and into the darkest of nights
your ship sails
its sails without the guidance of lights

face to face you smell the fear of death
but when it all comes down to the never ending faith

Where's your faith now?
Where's your faith now?
Where's your faith?
you should never back down
when your backs against the wall
keep singing
When you've got nothing
when you've got no hope
when it all falls through
you should never back down
when your backs against the wall
keep singing,
your backs against the wall
Track Name: Dread Night
This is a story of tenderness
where ones fortunes see the stars
the night will lead along with the disastrous drop
this is a story of tenderness

her red dress and her bewitching smile
filled the room with an alluring style
an august look and cancerous vapor
surround this infatuated beau
is this what beezlebub had pledged to happen?
she grips the room with an upheld mastery

This is a story of tenderness
where ones fortunes see the stars
the night will lead along with the disastrous drop
this is a story of tenderness

All the hounds and husky fiends
are all bursting with enthusiasm
and though it seems helpless
he can't help but marvel at the sight
and when his most darling lullaby takes his regard
the mistress in red, she comes and takes his hand
the count of four has them enslaved to the night again

it was the way she moved
the way she loved
hand in hand they're on the dance floor
and for a second
for a moment he shared
the security of all the stars above. x2

as the cancerous vapor ambush the two
the red begins to lose all luster
he reaches forward to only pass through
she withdraws into the night and into vamoose
beezlebub and his great yellow eyes are now king
he now has his soul and the lover of the red will remain in the
will remain in the dread night til blue

it was the way she moved
the way she loved
hand in hand they're on the dance floor
and for a second
for a moment he shared
the security of all the stars above. x2
Track Name: God Forbid This Misadventure
Raise your voices
its never meant to end
because we lost all patience
lost all hope
we're talking day by day,
we walk alone in this tired world.

God forbid this ugly mess,
scattered across this hopeless land

His old cursed tongue has joined us on this ride

Raise your voices
its never meant to end
because we lost all patience
lost all hope
we're talking day by day,
we walk alone in this dying world.

God forbid this ugly mess
it's scattered across this hopeless land
we fight the fire and we will count the lies

So this is where the story ends
and when we turn the page this is what it reads. x2

we're talking days

he's raised his cursed tongue
and joined us on the ride
so god please forbid
all of this broken land

Raise your voices
its never meant to end
because we lost all patience
lost all hope
we're talking day by day,
we walk alone in this dying world.

God forbid this ugly mess
it's scattered across this hopeless land
we fight the fire and we will count the lies

His old cursed tongue has joined us on this ride
Track Name: Thirsty Crow
Oh god keep your head down
because talk of death is near
the record player stops spinning
when you find yourself on the border line

we can hear the thirsty crow
and the rush of the coming cavalry
you can smell the breathe and see the rotten teeth
for a moment but the moment won't last

Oh god keep your head down
because talk of death is near
the record player stops spinning
when you find yourself on the border line

Why's it every time I,
I think about you (fuck you)
Why's it every time that we get lost it's..
Why's it every time I,
I think about you (fuck you)
Why's it every time that we get lost it's me

we can hear the thirsty crow
and the rush of the coming cavalry

Why's it every time I,
I think about you (fuck you)
Why's it every time that we get lost it's..
Why's it every time I,
I think about you (fuck you)
Why's it every time that we get lost it's me
It's always on me

Why's it every time that we cross paths you say
Why's it every time that we cross paths you say
Why's it every time that we

Oh god keep your head down
because talk of death is near
the record player stops spinning
when you find yourself on the border line

I'm once again,
searching through the wreck for my... x3
I'm once again,
searching through, for something

woo!
Move back mother fucker you don't have your way,
you say you don't ever come here to play,

These vultures have a grip on me,
Nothing like you'd ever wanna see,
This isn't what i wanted to be,
They restrict, why's it so hard to breathe?
I said these vultures,
They have a grip on me

The talons of the red break in my head,
Ten years a for his yellow eyes grow closer.

I'm not going to lose it,
I need to find a way out. x2

The talons of the red break in my head,
Ten years a for his yellow eyes grow closer.

I'm once again,
searching through the wreck for my... x5

searching through the wreck, for something

Ohh you forgot me baby

Track Name: The Hustle of an Awkward Age
Everything changed so fucking quick
we were in a place that felt like home.
so fun, so young, nothing was wrong. x2

Bring it back, bring it back
nothing was wrong.
bring it back, bring it back
it felt like home.
bring it back, bring it back

Everything changed so fucking quick
we couldn't wait to be alone
so fun, so young, nothing was wrong. x2

All it took was that one day
to take it all away
the feeling was there
that i couldn't bear
that's when the insides turned to stone

One night, please dance with me
one night. x3

Everything changed so fucking quick
now its just, just old memories
so fun, so young, nothing was wrong. x2

Bring it back, bring it back
nothing was wrong.
bring it back, bring it back
it felt like home. x2

We really take care of each other
It's been the best ride of my life
we made the catch, we made the catch
we made the catch, lets start having fun
We really take care of each other
It's been the best ride of our lives
we made the catch, we made the catch
we made the catch, lets start having fun

We really take care of each other
It's been the best ride of my life
we made the catch, we made the catch
we made the catch, lets start having fun
We really take care of each other
It's been the best ride of our lives
we made the catch, we made the catch
we made the catch, lets start having fun...
