Track Name: A Penchant for Hell on Earth pt.1
It's a labor of love for someone
It's a labor of love for someone
In the shadow of what we become
It's a labor of love
It's a labor of love
It's a labor of love
It's a labor of love
Track Name: Long Gone
The here and now
Day in day out
Eaten alive with an unopen mouth
Pull at the seam it's not hard to believe
We're falling away
Falling away

Turning the page
This day is long gone
Forgotten
Watch it fade out in the blink of an eye
Before you know it this life is long gone
Forgotten

Tight as a noose
Turn royal blue
The cannons are loose in this hullabaloo
And in the end we're all sinking to swim
Let's call it a day
Let's call it a day

Turning the page
This day is long gone
Forgotten
Watch it fade out in the blink of an eye
Before you know it this life is long gone
Forgotten

Day in, day out
Day in, day out
Day in, day out
Track Name: Jerusalem Syndrome
Listen to the sound of the voices around you
Closing in like four walls that confine you
This is your fleeting moment
Dying on the vine
Are you listening?

The thrill of the search for that missing piece
While you hang your hat in the belly of the beast
In the nick of time watch them fall in line
Like coming up for air
Breathe it in, hold it in
Don't let it slip away

Nothing can stop them now
No one will even try
Nothing can stop them now

Call it faith call it your own
Jerusalem syndrome
Believe your time to shine is here
Shine on, shine on

Shine on, shine on
Track Name: Penny Drops
Everything is broken
Shattered at our feet
Swept underneath the rug
Look it in the eye
Call it what you will
Everyone knows the name

Eyes trained on the sky
The penny drops tonight
Just one step behind
The penny drops tonight

Brave the unforgiven
Parade on their graves
Send them a message loud and clear
A desire to be remembered
Destiny to be forgotten
Fade away so gracefully

Eyes trained on the sky
The penny drops tonight
Just one step behind
The penny drops tonight

Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Track Name: Water Under the Burning Bridge
Find a new beginning
Tie it to an ending
See the ghosts ascending now
The fear of being outdone
Minutes of the long run
Breathe in every last one now

Conversations elevating
Court the fever
A lost believer
Better take it before it's given
Given away

Goodbye
It's water under the burning bridge
It's alright
It's just a fire in the sky

The blind leading the blind
Color on the gray lines
Simplify the design now
Drastic measures called for
The calm before the storm
Waiting outside your door now

Destination obligation
Soapbox dwelling
Your salvation
Better take it before it's given
Given away

Goodbye
It's water under the burning bridge
It's alright
It's just a fire in the sky

Hours, minutes, seconds
Roll a lucky seven
Lighting up the heavens now
Find a new beginning
Tie it to an ending
See the ghosts ascending now
Right now
Track Name: A Penchant for Hell on Earth pt.2
Banished to the shadows
Just to shine a light upon it
Bury it six feet below
Just to be unearthed another day
A monster's rebirth
With a penchant for hell on earth
An iron hand in a velvet glove
It's a labor of love for someone
I'll be waiting in the wings
For the big reveal

They will never let us forget
They will never let us forget
They will never let us forget
Never never let us forget

Throw the dead weight overboard
Just to have it wash ashore
On a dark horse riding out
Unforgiving light for all to see
A monster's rebirth
With a penchant for hell on earth
An iron hand in a velvet glove
It's a labor of love for someone
I'll be waiting in the wings
For the big reveal

They will never let us forget
They will never let us forget
They will never let us forget
Never never let us forget

Cut along the line
It's all the same, it's all the same
Bury it alive
It's all the same, it's all the same
