Track Name: Avenging Angels
When you're alone
Darkness stalks the halls
Where in brighter times we used to dance

My love you see
You were the brightest light
The brightest light of all
And now you've stolen everything
You must fall

I will follow you
As soon as I find the strength

As our blood spreads
Through the carpet by the bed
I see our lives entwined
As never before

My final gift to you
My love, my light

Fly with me into the light
Together you and I will find the light
Here come the angels to guide us home
Avenging Angels will carry us home

And when the judgement comes I will hold my head up high
I've taken nothing but recompense for a lie

I close the blinds on you
My love, my light
Track Name: The Chapel
I am living a lifelong defeat
You saw through to this, you left long ago
I know
You’ve gone to The Chapel alone

I am living in your town now
Streets you played on shape my stride now
I know
This road leads to The Chapel

Now come with me!
And stay as the wind blows
Stay as the wine flows away

You are here in my home now
Close enough to touch, we breathe the same air
I know
Your mind’s in The Chapel now

You are here in my arms now
If you had the strength
I know you’d say now
“Oh Love, let’s hasten to The Chapel now”

And you will stay as the wind blows
Stay as the wine flows away
Stay as your life flows away
Track Name: Skin
I wish the fear would drain from my veins
And let the sunlight in
And all the pain boil off from my skin
And let your love shine in

But when you touch me it burns like holy fire
And I die a little more each time

And all the while nothing lights your eyes
Save the surest sign
That you’d give your life if that were required
A thousand times

Still when you touch me it burns like holy fire
And I die a little more each time

Still I’m here doing the best I can
Trying hard to change everything I am
Still it’s not enough!
Still it’s not enough for love!

I want to change everything within
This old worn-out bag of skin
Melt down my bones, clean out my soul
And let your love fill me in

And when you touch me we can at last begin
To let me become your skin
Track Name: Try To Sleep
I try to sleep
So I can dream about you next to me
Try to sleep!
As the sun rises we will find all the time we need

I see a better time is coming for us
A better place, a better home

The paint is cracking, the ceiling coming down
Our island isn’t safe anymore
The word has gotten out that the walls are coming down
And our whole world is crumbling

Maybe a better time is coming for us
A better place, a better home

I can’t sleep!
I can’t dream without you next to me
Try to Sleep!
As the sun rises I hope that you’re bound for home
Track Name: The Heat Will Fade
I’m upset tonight!
Don’t push me, I haven’t the time to make things right
Tonight
Everything seems to shine
lit like a devil has cast his spell on us
Tonight
And this house so lately alive with love
Now harbours the shadows of my dark side

The old man rears his head in rage again tonight

The heat will fade from this as from all else
Given time everything dies
There’s hope in these walls now
Nothing can tear them down
Given time
All will be fine

And this time nothing is broken
We remain whole
Tonight
It’s just another fight!
Good that our fire is burning bright
Tonight.
In this house lit bright with the fire of love
We condemn to shadows the embers of hate

The old man tears his hair out outside again tonight

The Heat Will Fade from this as from all else
Given time everything dies
Sometimes nothing can keep us together
Sometimes nothing can tear us apart
Given time
All will be fine

The heat will fade
All wounds will heal
Given time
All will be fine
Track Name: Waves
Waves of cool water wash away my tears
As I lie hidden entombed beneath my fears
I watch the perfect fly fearlessly
Into your perfect present, future and past

Though I am broken you surround me tirelessly
Helping me see that you see me as something worth love

Now the sky blackens and breath burns in my throat
I lie speechless, a life reduced to rote
Why am I alone now?
Where are the perfect now?
How can it get any worse?

Though I doubt you now I know that you doubt me not
Helping me see that you see me as always worth love
