Track Name: Saviour
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
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: ASKOF
Empathy is nothing if you haven’t got the words
Silence is golden in this cold and dirty world
Abandoned soldiers keep on fighting
Are we winning?
Do we even care?

Absolute solution gives us all the space to sin
Absolution seeks out those with the strength left to win
New converts for the creator
Let the little children come onto me

I have searched through all the channels
Divinity the one thing un-found
I’ve been bored in all the chat-rooms
Never heard a dissenting sound

If I was a little stronger, safer in this cell of mine
I’d denounce your dullest doctrine
Condemn your sin, the same as mine

Culture crowds out my cries
Curses light as lies
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 speachless, a life reduced to rote

Why am I alone now?
Where are the perfect now?
How can it get any worse?

Though I am broken you surround me tirelessly
Helping me see that you see me as always worth love
Track Name: Pact (acoustic)
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
