Track Name: Deaf
Running out of breath
Until there’s nothing left
Scream and shout until we’re deaf
It’s the final countdown to a nervous breakdown
Try to maintain until we drown

Overwhelmed and losing
This is so confusing
Does this make any sense at all?
Now you've got me wondering if I can play this game
Nothing left to do but walk away

Well I have so much to say
I only know your name
Well I have so much to say

Well I have so much to say
I only know your name
That's okay
Walk away

Well I have so much to say
I only know your name
Well I have so much to say
Alone

Well I have so much to say
I only know your name
That's okay
Walk away
Track Name: The Void
Your crystal ball usually fails
The serpent chases after its own tail
Some fortune teller you turned out to be

Slipped into another trance
And took another chance on glass and dust
And chasing wanderlust

Cloudy with a chance of grey, you say
Can't penetrate the hate
Premonitions fade away

You leave me so hollow
You leave me so hollow

In the blue of a full moon
The candlelight swims all around the room
Entwined with paranormal fantasies

Cloak and dagger, Ouiji board
Can't separate the darkness from the sword
Or your lies from the truth

Tempting to try and decipher fate
Can't infiltrate and what is yet to be
Just evaporates

You leave me so hollow
You leave me so hollow

What was concealed is revealed
I should have known this wasn't real
Track Name: Summer Fever
Frozen chlorine
In the lion's veins
Cupid's arrow
Causes such pain

The secrets you hide
There's no denying
Your desire

Blood is boiling
There's lust in your eyes
Heart is racing
Your temperature rises

All the secrets you hide
There's no denying
Your summer fever

Summer Fever
There's poison inside
Shiver swelter
Come to my side

Light the dynamite
Diamonds in the night
Sparks igniting

The secrets you hide
Locked deep inside
There's no denying

Lock it deep inside
Your temperature rises
Used to surprises

The secrets you hide
Locked deep inside
There's no denying

Your summer fever
Track Name: Puppet Master
You are prisoners of the puppet master
My commands damage your mind
Try to manage
Hanging on by a thin line

Once were paralyzed
Now you're hypnotized
You try your best to sway in time
Imagine that everything will turn out fine

Dance in my hands
Move at my command
Losing your grasp
On reality

Peel the pavement back
'til there's nothing left to see

Oh with my hands
Move at my command
Losing our grasp
On reality

Your body's hanging
Over the candles
Watch the strings tangle
And begin to fray

Pull your spirit down
Like using fists on clay

You're in my hands
Move at my command
Losing my grasp
On reality
Track Name: Blouse
Seclusion serves to keep you safe
From quicksand and poisonous snakes
Sometimes you must crack the plastic
And tumble down the spiral staircase

You know that you're playing with fire
You know it, you know it
You know you're only playing with fire

The existential nausea of
Constant sunshine from far away
You can't be reckless but you can't be helpless
From all the fears of being afraid

You spent a lifetime sterilizing
Protection from perils and aches
Unfiltered air may be dangerous
But losing her, it's a heartbreak

You know that you're playing with fire
You know it, you know it
You know you're only playing with fire

The existential nausea of
Constant sunshine from far away
You can't be reckless but you can't be helpless
From all the fears of feeling so scared

On your way back home
And you're all alone
But you tried, yeah you tried, no one died
Nothing ventured and nothing gained

On your way back home
And you're on your own
But you tried
Yeah you tried
You survived
No one cried
Cuz you're still alive

The existential nausea of
Constant sunshine from far away
You can't be reckless but you can't be helpless
From all the fears of being afraid
Track Name: Heartmelt
Step inside of the ride
The world is televised
Horrified homicide
Give me your butterflies
Move aside subdivide
It's the firing line
Liquify electrify
Show me your vital signs

Dream design feeling fine
Continue oscillating
Morning cries don't know why
Stop assimilating
Amplified run and hide
While they're accelerating
Cyanide crystallize
Into the hurricane

Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you

You and I equal sign
Probably an exit sign
When you're confined redesign
We'll align in given time

Do what you wanna do
Do what you wanna do
Do what you wanna do
Cuz I just hope that you do
Cuz I just want to

Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you

In an instant in an instant
In an instant in an instant
In the distance in the distance
In the distance in the distance
Moving slowly moving slowly
Moving slowly moving slowly
To the doorway through the doorway
In a minute we're within it

Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Hold on tight to you
Track Name: Mirage
Hallucinate
The flashbacks call
Kalidoscopes
Spin down the wall
Still can't forget
What I was before
What we were before

Pinata filled with paint
A poisoned wine, black turpentine
A bumblebee
A porcupine

No matter what I say
No matter what i do
Can’t seem to shake
Memories of you

The golden fang
At the moonlit dance
The trap was sprung
Never had a chance
Magenta swirls
All around the shark
Sometimes a whisper
Is an exclamation mark

No matter what I say
No matter what I do
Can't seem to shake
Memories of you

Don't blame the drugs
For regrets of yesterday
Don't blame the drugs
When your love fades away
Track Name: Blue Lipstick
Lamia in disguise
Venom drips from your eyes
The taste of honey and sin
Bloodlust within

Blue lipstick
You chill me
You kiss me
You kill me

Halloween flesh so pale
A nightmare or nightingale
Stay awake stay aware
Vampires everywhere

Blue lipstick
You chill me
You kiss me
You kill me

Ghosts of folly glide in the caves
A blessed angel spits on your grave
Your love dissolves in the morning dew
And you do too

Blue lipstick
You chill me
You kiss me
You kill me
Track Name: Jenna's Daydream
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Self Inflicted Beatdown
Tear gas burns, the road runs red
Enveloped in a sea of lead
Hold your head above the waves
Hold your head above the waves

Trapped inside the slot machine
You're scraping knuckles losing steam
Hold your head inside your hands
Hold your head inside your hands

Vigilantes closing in
The laser beams, they warm your skin
Hold your hands above your head
Hold your hands above your head

On this apocalyptic night
The demons circle, burning bright
Hold your head inside your hands
Hold your head inside your hands

When you feel it coming, gotta gotta move around
Try to avoid this self inflicted beat down
Hold your head up
Hold your head up

You can’t dodge your shadow
Even when the lights grow dim
So smoke up if you got ‘em.
It's time to take your medicine

When you feel it coming, gotta gotta move around
When you feel it coming, gotta gotta move around
