Track Name: ribbons
yeah, the rain drips like acid tonight
i know how this must seem
dreams of you shine like metal on fire
swirled in eternity

i'm gone
come with me
i'm gone this time for real

take me back to the lovely decay
flowers on razor wire
tender flesh will corrupt and infect
twist your will to desire

i'm gone
come with me
i'm gone this time for real

sick city i love
this lurid affair
turns me on like the ribbons in your hair
sin city i love
this sordid affair
it gets me off
i'm the son of god
i'm the ribbons in your hair
Track Name: burning away
slow death moves around so quickly
it's a secret no one will disturb
move around underground in sequence
to the beat of a heart that goes unheard

all the exits have been opened
you're free just as long as you close your eyes
i was brought here sad and lonely
i'm alive as freedom fades and dies

burning away
and it feels so nice when the skies bleed bright
burning away
it's a perfect day for the joy to fade
burning away
and it's good to know i've lost all control
burning away

this corrosion looks so pretty
feel the lust of a heart that beats too loud
just suppress all that's sad and lonely
it flies through the skies like a heavy cloud

this destruction seems so petty
we survive on the lies we were told from birth
look around for the sound that threatens
it's a death knell tolling for the earth

burning away
and it feels so nice with the skies so bright
burning away
it's a perfect day for the joy to fade
burning away
and it's good to know i've lost all control
burning away
Track Name: with guilt
rise up there’s a new day up ahead
it’s time to pretend
we know how the words
will not be said
we know it’s the end
it’s not my fault
summer’s here again
wake up to a new day’s misery
just try to pretend
the sun shined brighter yesterday
the world never ends
it’s all our fault
summer’s here again
with guilt as our friend
this thing will never end
the sun’s in our eyes
we’ll watch as it dies
Track Name: bones & ashes
i am the child asleep in the abyss
a fury defined by years of neglect
together we watch
as the city collapses
the weight of the ocean
spills over the dead
i’ll make love to
the bones and the ashes
the slow dance
from birth to decay
i’ll smear the blood
on the walls of the temple
together we drown
in an ocean of tears
i am the face
that appears in the window
a daydream crushed
by the labor of guilt
i am the child
who wanders the ruins
an insect fear
that gnaws at our spines
i am the child
asleep in the abyss
i will gather the ashes
the slow dance from our birth
to our decay
i will wander the ruins
