Track Name: Victory Cry
You've closed yourself to me
You've gone so cold
And the lies behind your eyes
Are waiting to be told

So let this be my
Victory cry
We've drawn in the sand
Where our loyalties lie

I've taken it all
Now it's my curtain call
and I won't say I'm sorry
I'm not sorry

You've done so much to prove that you
Are so important
And the lies rain from the skies
Your words are so distorted

So let this be my
Victory cry
We've drawn in the sand
Where our loyalties lie

I've taken it all
Now it's my curtain call
and I won't say I'm sorry
I'm not sorry

And so this is my
Victory cry
And so this is war now
Between you and I

You've forced me to crawl
Now it's time I stand tall
and I won't say I'm sorry
I'm not sorry
Track Name: Weak
I fall down
Occasionally
Does that make me a fragile, imperfect anomaly?
What do you say?

The sun comes up
The sun goes down
We part again to find ourselves
again unfound
What do you say?

This is all that I can offer you
Let it be the answer that you seek
Even if we still pretend we're strong
We are weak.

So we know
Should we leave it here?
Does that make us careless, or childish, or insincere?
What do you say?

We turn our heads
The line is crossed
We part again to lose ourselves
again unlost.
What do you say?

This is all that I can offer you
Let it be the answer that you seek
Even if we still pretend we're strong
We are weak.

When it's all been seen through,
Do you feel like I do?
When it's all been seen through,
Do you feel like I do?

Don't say it's not fair.
Don't say it's not fair
Don't say it's not fair
It's not fair.

This is all that I can offer you
Let it be the answer that you seek
Even if we still pretend we're strong
We are weak.

This is all that I can offer you
Let it be the answer that you seek
Even if we still pretend we're strong
We are weak.
Track Name: The Things You've Burnt
All this water under the bridge.
We're flooding, we're drowning.
How many times has it been?
I'm no longer counting.

And when you brush away the embers from the fire,
Is the satisfaction worth the things you've burnt?

Well suffice to say I'm sorry
But I can't be held for
Everything that's happened anymore
So where do the ends meet now?

Find me
Help me understand these things
I cannot feel them anymore.
If I can't, then how can I be sure?

And when you clear away the ashes and the dust,
Is the validation worth the things you've burnt?

Well suffice to say I'm sorry
But I can't be held for
Everything that's happened anymore
So where do the ends meet now?

So was it worth it in the end?
Or are you wasting all your
heart and soul on ignorance
Have you justified yourself?

Well suffice to say I'm sorry
But I can't be held for
Everything that's happened anymore
So where do the ends meet now?
Track Name: Mea Culpa
I question your answers
I question everything you say
What is truth, now?
All these loose ends start to fray

Did you rescue me?
Or did I maybe save myself?
Release me.
I, yes I and no one else

Testify
Mea culpa by and by
These hallowed words to falsify
My lord

I tremble now
Like a child in a dark embrace
Even now, still
I am haunted by your face

All the souls to save
Should the children misbehave
I am not, I am not
Your servant

Testify
Mea culpa by and by
These hallowed words to falsify
My lord

Parce domine
Ne in aeternum
Irascaris nobis

Testify
Mea culpa by and by
These hallowed words to falsify
My lord

Testify
Mea culpa by and by
These hallowed words to falsify
My lord
Track Name: Consequences
I don't want be your enemy
I don't want to suffer from a lack of empathy

I don't mean to go on about it
But I can't believe it, I'm trying to doubt it
These things that you're saying, these games that you're playing
What do you expect from me?

The words are so small
Mean nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Have you ever really thought about the consequences?

What are you hoping to achieve?
It's a complicated mess that you've begun to weave.

I don't mean to go on about it
I still can't believe it, It's harder to doubt it
These things you keep saying, these games you keep playing
What do you expect from me?

The words are so small
Mean nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Have you ever really thought about the consequences?

Hanging by a string
You don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing
How you've never really thought about the consequences.

Consequences…
Consequences…

You
Mean
Nothing
At
All
Consequence
Is
Nothing

The words are so small
Mean nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Have you ever really thought about the consequences?

Hanging by a string
You don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing
How you've never really thought about the consequences.

You

Nothing

All
Consequence

Nothing
Track Name: Say What You Want To
You say you've never asked so much
You know you haven't
You think you've done it right by me
You're so transparent.

So much for bluffing
Thank you for nothing
I thought you'd be careful
Tender and loving
I guess I was wrong but I don't care
You can just

Say what you want to
I don't know what you say it for
Say what you want to
I'm not listening anymore

I say you've always asked too much
You say you haven't
You've never done it right by me
Is that apparent?

All of this bluffing
Well thank you for nothing
I hoped you'd be careful
Tender and loving
I know I was wrong but I don't care
You can just

Say what you want to
I don't know what you say it for
Say what you want to
I'm not listening anymore

Say what you want to
I don't know what you say it for
Say what you want to
I'm not listening anymore
Track Name: Undone
Too many nights
You're nothing left uncertain now
We're just spinning
Patience thinning

My mind is wrecked
You've got me feeling paranoid
Questions burning
Love is turning
Undone

Would you lead me to believe
That I'm the only one
Who do you think you're fooling?
It's over, undone.

I have reason to believe
You've strayed
To feed your fire
Your desire

I'm so tired
You left me in daze
Questions burning
Love is turning
Undone

Would you lead me to believe
That I'm the only one
Who do you think you're fooling?
It's over, undone.

Cut me down and leave me blinded
You have let me come undone
You have let me come undone

Would you lead me to believe
That I'm the only one
Who do you think you're fooling?
It's over, undone.

Would you lead me to believe
That I'm the only one
Who do you think you're fooling?
It's over, undone.
Track Name: This Clever Boy
Turn your head now
This clever boy speaks so profound
of only nonsense
These words they spiral to the ground

And would you spare him
A moment
To listen to the words he can't say

A soliloquy for deaf ears
Clever boy won't you go away?

And you know the truth is once you know him
If you feel you can't be swayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.

Turn your head now
This clever boy speaks so profound
of hobs and goblins
Everywhere and all around

And would you spare him
A moment
To see all these things you can't see

A soliloquy for deaf ears
Clever boy won't you let me be?

And you know the truth is once you know him
If you feel you can't be swayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.

If you'll understand it
Would you reprimand it?
If you'll understand it
Would you reprimand it?

And you know the truth is once you know him
If you feel you can't be swayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.

For the love of all that's sacred
and for all you've hoped and prayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.

And you know the truth is once you know him
If you feel you can't be swayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.

For the love of all that's sacred
and for all you've hoped and prayed
If you'll understand it
When you're clever it makes them so afraid.
Track Name: Your Price to Pay
Say goodnight tonight
Before you lose the light
The dark will catch you
Don't you let it catch you

And if you close the door
What would you do it for
Keep it in keep it out
Oh no you can't keep it out

Turning faces to the skies
Keep your semi-precious lies
I know you're faking it faking it
Are you making it making it?

Reasons now, there's so much doubt
As we scream and thrash about
Is there anything we might have left out?

Blow away
And throw away
it all today
Your price to pay

Run away
And hide away
No more to say
Your price to pay

Say goodnight tonight
Make sure you say it right
The dark will catch you
Dark will always catch you

And if you close the door
I hope you're really sure
Keep it in keep it out
You know you won't keep it out

Turning faces to the skies
You've got your semi-precious lies
I know you're faking it faking it
Are you making it making it?

Reasons now, there's so much doubt
As we scream and thrash and shout
Is there anything we might have left out?

Blow away
And throw away
it all today
Your price to pay

Run away
And hide away
No more to say
Your price to pay

Run
Hide
You're never gonna keep it inside

Run
Hide
You're never gonna keep it inside

Blow away
And throw away
it all today
Your price to pay

Run away
And hide away
No more to say
Your price to pay

Blow away
And throw away
it all today
Your price to pay

Run away
And hide away
No more to say
Your price to pay
