Track Name: City Of Wax
You're mouth's a loaded gun, you've pulled the trigger back.
You think you are a flame, all your friends are made of wax.

This city's burning down to the ground.
And you can't see through smoke and cloud.

I take on the world, my friends stand by my side.
Through thick or thin, through still or storm.
When they take on the world, I will make sure they survive.
But you were nowhere to be found.
My dear your looks could kill, but who would die for you?
Sharp teeth and eyes so cold, I don't dare speak the truth.

This city's burning down to the ground.
And you can't see through smoke and cloud.

I take on the world, my friends stand by my side.
Through thick or thin, through still or storm.
When they take on the world, I will make sure they survive.
But you were nowhere to be found.

This city's burning to the ground.
And you can't see through smoke and cloud.

Sharp teeth and eyes to cut diamonds,
You'll turn me to stone, but you wont make me bleed.

I take on the world, my friends stand by my side.
Through thick or thin, through still or storm.
When they take on the world, I will make sure they survive.
But you were nowhere.
I take on the world, my friend stand by my side
I take on the world, my friend stand by my side
When you take on the world, who will make sure you survive?
'Cause I'll be nowhere to be found.
Track Name: Monsters
These are the chills ran down your neck,
The shadow on the wall.
These are the voices in your head that you can't silence.

Even with this spine of steel,
I choke on iron lungs.
I tell myself to breath,
It rusts this silver tongue.

These are the chills ran down your neck,
The shadow on the wall.
These are the voices in your head that you can't silence.

We all live with monsters.

You act like you're the only one,
But deep down,
We all live with monsters.

I can't make sence in all of this,
My limbs they melt in gravity,
I feel myself begin to sink,
I can't wake up from this.

These are the chills ran down your neck,
The shadow on the wall.
These are the voices in your head that you can't silence.

These walls could build a prison,
These walls could build a home.
Tear them down and make them your own.
Don't break down.

I'll tear the paint from the walls,
So the light wont reflect,
I'll scratch the skin from these bones,
To see what lives under my flesh.

They'll take apart your head.
Don't break down.
Don't break down.

Pull yourself together, before you fall apart.

We all live with monsters.

You act like you're the only one,
But deep down,
We all live with monsters.
Track Name: Fuck The Lannisters
I watched you draw a line in sand, now the tide is coming in.
It's washing through your desperate hands.
And I know I've heard you speak the words, as if you believed yourself.
(And I know you can't keep a secret, the blisters on my tongue show though my teeth.)
But I see, you smile through your teeth.

You wave your hands through the flames.
You'll break at the bend.
Your fantasy fades.

In the end.

It's the space between the words that scares me the worst.
You crossed your 'i's and lost your place.
And I know I've heard you speak the words, every careful syllable.
(And I know you can't keep a secret, the blisters on my tongue show though my teeth.)
But I see, you smile through your teeth.

You wave your hands through the flames.
You'll break at the bend.
Your fantasy fades.

In the end.

It's burning down.
I'm walking out.
It's burning down.
It's burning down.

You wave your hands through the flames.
You'll break at the bend.
Your fantasy fades.

In the end.
Track Name: Poseidon Is Sinking
What good are ears if you can't turn up the volume?
What good are ears if you've got nothing to say?
Do you own a heart and is it capable of breaking?
If torn apart would I see it in your face?

You're all just snakes with kind faces.

I burned down something beautiful.
I crashed on shored of temptation.
I fucked up something beautiful.
Bled out on shores of temptation.

What good are ears if you can't turn up the volume?
What good are lungs if there's no trees in the forest?
Would you burn it down just to find out where I am?
Being original has already been done.

You're all just snakes with kind faces.

I burned down something beautiful.
I crashed on shored of temptation.
I fucked up something beautiful.
Bled out on shores of temptation.

If I could evolve there would be room for two.
But you are tearing, this is tearing my head apart.

You're all snakes.

I burned down something beautiful.
I crashed on shored of temptation.
I fucked up something beautiful.
Bled out on shores of temptation.
