Track Name: Pact
You know everything about me
For you have long shadowed my steps
You have seen me at my very weakest
You have stayed at your best
Take me now, I’m just a shallow thrill
But give me time, I’ll be so much more

Pick me up, drive me where e’er you will
Just understand this is my choice
I choose to drape myself before you
I give you leave to break our pact
Take me now, it will be meaningful
But give me time, I’ll be so much more

Follow me! We move to different drums
And now you see, wonder comes
I have caused your strength to be your downfall
I have crawled so you rise
Take me now, I’ll conquer all around you
And given time, I’ll be your everything
Track Name: These Days
Strip away my sullied flesh
All that's left is bones
Nothing more
Just bones

Do with me as you are wont
I will wait outside
Nothing here
Just bones

These days
I need a little help to sleep
Does that make me weak?

These days
I'm getting more like me
Even less like you
Even more like me

These days
Are getting less and less clear
Even more surreal
Even less sincere

Strip away my sullied flesh
All that's left is bones
Nothing more
Just bones

Do with me as you are wont
I will wait outside
Nothing here
Just bones
Track Name: Saviour (acoustic)
So you say you know me from when I drew breath
And let my first cries shake this mad world
Until I meet my death ?

And nothing comes between us
Will nothing bring me harm?
Can you vouchsafe solace beneath your ghostly arm?

Sometimes I feel like crying
When I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming
But I choke it down instead

You are not my saviour
I never learnt to trust
Can I put faith in your love
When you fill me with this lust?

Sometimes I feel like crying
When I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming
But I choke it down instead

I guess I’m alone now
As always before
Is there anything for me to light this world
This chore?

Sometimes I feel like crying
When I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming
But I choke it down instead
