Track Name: Your Queen
I don't mind you thinking I'm another man
I don't see how you could ever understand


Those eyes I let them pierce right through me
They lock with mine and I fall in love
Everyday every time

Can you feel my heart beating in your hand?

It's you, it's always been you.
Tell me, can't you tell it's you?
I only need you

Those lies your queen makes me out to be
The king is dead, and I'll take his place
By your side, by your head
Track Name: Theatre
The last grape on the vine
Is so hard to find
Now I know, now I know, now I know
You're mine

You died on broadway
You're a broad anyway

New York busy streets
Filled with love and cold bodies
And i hear the Liberty is like home
Like home

These smile lines are compromises that I fill with nervous laughs
Things I thought but didn't say and moments that I'll never get back
And when I'm out I'm hold up in my own head
Cause i find that my better times are spent when I'm alone instead
A slave to the cage of my skull
I don't want to care, I don't want to care

New York busy streets
Filled with love and cold bodies
And i hear the Liberty is like home
Like home
Track Name: Kill The Cunning
A barn faces the woods
Watching timber sleep
Unaware of what's coming
After twilight's gleam

Thoughts of self conviction
Slowly seeping in
Eyes pierce through the shadow
Pondering their sin
Awake at last
Awake at last

Wolves are howling, "Kill The Cunning"
Owls screaming, "Burn their feeling"
Winds are prowling, thunder growling
Flames are roaring, they smolder fast

Their judgement deftly sits
Perched on royal scheme
Unaware of what's running
Wild in their dreams

Thoughts of self conviction
Slowly seeping in
Minds pierce through the shadow
Guiding others in
Awake at last
Awake at last

Wolves are howling, "Kill The Cunning"
Owls screaming, "Burn their feeling"
Winds are prowling, thunder growling
Flames are roaring, they smolder fast
Track Name: And I Know
Anything and everything is haunted it seems
A ghost appears with late night fears and screams "farewell"

Are you scared?

You're a kite dancing in a hurricane
No control yet beautiful


Anybody else, is anybody out there?
Anybody else? Anyone? Anyone?



Anyone? Is anyone counting down the days?
The end is near, can you tell?
A ball and chain, sink faster please
No control still beautiful
Track Name: Remember When
I'll watch my family die
But I won't cry
I'll let this one life
Flash right by

I'll let my family die
But I won't cry
I'll watch my whole life
Become the sky

I share these wretched feelings with my demons
Track Name: We Give Up, My Dear
Please, listen close,
Heed my words I'm only saying this once
I never thought you'd be the one to take it all

Come, come now dear
Don't pretend that this is not all a charade
Shhh, it's coming, closer and closer again

It's not easy to begin
So, we give up my dear
Wasted memories feel no pain
I have nothing to fear


Fires burn down the gracious gates
Through our world of vicious hate
I can't tell if this is real
Mother, help me, help me to feel!
Track Name: 011
Little bird had a broken wing
Eleven times, the same old thing
That thing didn't feel the same
Hopefully

Broken wings still take flight
Eleventh time, strikes midnight
Twilight doesn't seem that late
When I'm with you

With you (I'm still laughing, I'm still loving)
With you (Are you laughing? Are you loving?)

Never walk on the broken road
Eleven died, but one came home
Home is where the heart can sing
Welcome (home)

Without you things don't seem right
Eleven times, I'm up at night
Night sings of a broken man
You're with me
Track Name: Grandfather Clock
I've been lost in my head
following a silhouette
Make me feel again
Like I'm holding on to an end

Only one in my head
You're the only one in my head


I don't want to die anymore
But tonight I still need to say goodbye


I’ve been found on my own
Finally letting go
Make me real again (Make me feel again)
Like the melody aforesaid (Like a melody, that you sang)

Only one in my head
You're the only one in my head
