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

Long Gone 04:39
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

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

Penny Drops 03:30
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
5.
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

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
