Twins 03:15
Don't wake the twins, they want to sleep for evermore But sleep is wasted, time for our task will never end One is angry, she tries to write with inkless pen Dead one needs her, anger's light is brighter here Dreams that wake twins stain the crib with cold sweat It won't help them, anger is the way to heal the debt Seeing nowhere left to go, they vow to return to sleep
2.
Thin Air 03:30
Floating head upon a sea My eyes are street scenes Look at them when I am dead Beyond green grass she sees as mud Over bridge and tallest mountain Conviction took me past breathing point and I choked on thin air, thin air, thin air False eyes true lies I'll She has false eyes Play Tell her true lies Along False eyes true lies False eyes true lies I'll She has false eyes Play Tell her true lies Along She has false yes

Quietly Safe 04:57
If you are scares you will be spared from they daylight's burn ever again Quietly quietly safe Quietly quietly safe You will know not the pain of your suffering From it's existence you will be hid To have an enemy will keep you safe Unite us all in the fight Keeping us Keeping us safe Quietly quietly safe Until one day the farce explains, the monsters within our night are to remain Then worlds collide Your quest will be questioned From sorrow you can run no longer But it always raps you over knuckles Attacks your gut and throws you down to drown you…

Run into space Where once I lived Where I was sweet before Can love her, please more Light, I saw it I never knew that I, Yes I Had a place before Running water running through and running still and running forward Running water still, running fast and slow And running water running still and running water fast and water running still, Running fast and slow And I am running fast And I am running still and running fast And I am running still and running fast And I am running forward I know I found it here Where once i lived You see it was here You knew where to go If you hadn't you'd have been lost forever within

Crippled 03:56
I crippled his head, three months of pain, almost drove insane I killed him the woman she said I pulled the rope 'round his neck I pulled the rope 'round his neck she said From supportive to silent breath it was I who caused his death, he would not speak of manhood's doubts I pulled the rope 'round his neck I pulled the rope 'round his neck she said I crippled his head three months of pain, almost drove insane I killed him, the woman she said I killed him, the woman she said I pulled the rope 'round his neck I pulled the rope around his neck she said
6.
Plastic bag's the same as breathing But I forgot about the blood She forgot about the love And I watched it wash like mud Once the flood of tears from evil men turned into spears my side was slashed, gashed and torn broke Violent vinegar filled a mouth Stained glass colours and cellular rainbows Then voice did turn to child's Even though more wisdom did show than that she would ever admit Still divide was inevitable Stained glass colours of our lives show what happened with our divide One has fallen and got up again But she is falling away my friend Stained glass colours and cellular rainbows

Hold me, hold me aside yes Hold me, yeah holds me inside Hold me, yeah holds me inside She holds me Holds me alive Hold me, hold me inside yes Hold me, keep me alive Hold me yeah Hold me alive Hold me, keep me aside

I am slowly going crazy…
9.
I, oh I, know you meant it not It's plain to see, But you, you won't see, how this goes You know it not from the other side From here you look down to where your pride lies We've seen the biggest one thrown Through a canvas of supposed happiness Atop battlements of pressure Tonight it'll hurt your side This veil of sabotage Marking the colour of the scene Smeared with red and black hues from the pit of your stomach From the bottom of your fear A long way from how you got here Your hand run through his being like water paint Dripping down a page Fear a stain not Can't find words to tell you it's OK You should know, you know you know you've been here before The tears are only pain escaping from you The tears are only pain escaping from you The tears are only pain letting you out The tears are only pain, only pain, only pain, only pain Darkness paints across your face and hides your view You do not have to succumb to blind panic oh But not all that is lost is not something you gained
10.
Finally heard from you the other day It was great You said you don't believe in what I am You share my fear best Not like the others Don't know why they left it there, don't know Don't know They ask me not for they don't know My world or that it connects to their's We used to live in the same world Now it's divided by good old fear Locked numbers and door keys invade their heads While mine utterly refuses them For fear of losing what I am Must get past doubt and to the top again You ask me not for they don't know Don't care to Oh, but you! Oh how could you know, How could you know That I was holding my breath again? Holding my breath again Holding my breath again Holding, holding, holding, Holding
