Track Name: Crocodile
I crawl around
Fall and roll
On the ground and watch things grow
Wash away
Yet I stay
In the same place that I know

I bite myself
Feel the pain
It's easier than to explain
Losing grip
Falling through
I'm getting deeper

Still you
Pull the animal out of me
Still you
Pull the animal out of me
You pull the animal out

I crawl around
Dragging down
Underneath without a sound
The way I think
It's like everything has fallen out of fashion

I bite myself
Feel the pain
It's easier than to explain
Losing grip
Falling through
I'm getting deeper

Still you
Pull the animal out of me
Still you
Pull the animal out of me
Still you
Pull the animal out of me
It's the way that you're bleeding me
But you're the ecstacy that I need
Track Name: Host
As I look into the sunrise
A shadow passes across the sky
Lost my soul along the way
There's no turning back today

Without conscience I'm descending
See creations of my own
There's a change in your eyes
Now I'm turning back alone

Now everything is different
Now I'm not sure what I'll become
Now everything is different
Now I can't see the stars anymore

Now I can't get it together
(I'm losing all control)
Now I cannot go back home
(Slowly falling down the hole)
There is nothing left to go back to
Now my soul is gone!

Now everything is different
Now I'm not sure what I'll become
Now everything is different
Now I can't see the stars anymore
Track Name: Fugitive
I ran away for miles
The city dissapeared
I found a place to hide
Still can't escape the fear

I need a friend
Means to an end
My new cave is dark
Here i'll start again

I saw you in the night
Your silhouette so clear
I can't believe my eyes
You took away the fear

I need a friend
Means to an end
My new cave is dark
Here I'll start again
I need a lie
Light at the end
My new heart is dark
Here I'll start again

Why did you come for me
I don't understand
I thought we both agreed
You're not safe in my hands

I need a friend
Means to an end
My new cave is dark
Here I'll start again
I need a lie
Light at the end
My new cave is dark
Here I'll start again
Track Name: Grey Matter
All alone again
This became a habit
All aboard my friends
If there's anyone left

I became a different grey
But I'm still the same
You remain the perfect place
And I want in
And I want in

No need to pretend
This is really happening
You hold out your hand
But I've lost the keys to the kingdom

I became a different grey
But I'm still the same
You remain the perfect place
And I want in
And I want in

I know I'm not the same
I've lost the best in me
Colours I used to be
You drained them out of me
Track Name: The Ladder
I woke up inside a dream
I couldn't fall asleep
I washed out onto the shore
There's fire in the trees

I woke up inside a dream
I wish that it was real
She kept focusing on me
Wonder what she must feel

Soon your actions will have consequence
Burning houses filled with innocence

(Starting to lose ourselves
Start to lash out)

Soon your actions will have consequence
Burning houses filled with innocence
You have made us turn against ourselves.
Track Name: The Trap ft. Tamara Dey
My mind in reverse
From all the circles
Tearing through my thoughts

I'm all figured out
By all the others
I fell into their trap

I made a mistake
I followed the dream
You gave me a taste

I'm caught in the act
Of being someone else
But you can't even tell

I'm building a house
Made out of cards
But the wind is howling hard

I've trapped myself in this
A cage filled with regrets
I have to get out

I've made a mistake
I followed the dream
You gave me a taste

I'm caught in the act
Of being someone else
But you can't even tell

My cover is blown
I'm out in the cold
And Im scared to go home

I'm doing the best i can
Can't help the way i am
I hope you'll understand

I've made a mistake
I followed the dream
You gave me a taste

I'm caught in the act
Of being someone else
But you can't even tell
Track Name: Heart of the Machine ft. Tamara Dey
I'm in a scary place now
Built out of my own conscience
I'm in the heart of the machine
It's beating me into nothing

I see the people pointing
They are all laughing at me
If only I could point back at them
Maybe they would let me be

Oh, this makes me nervous
You made me like this
Oh, this makes me nervous
There's not much I can do

There's not much I can do
There's not much I can do
There's not much I can do
There's nothing I can do.
Track Name: Somniliquist
I'm in the waking hour with the exes and the rest
Usually I can stand on my feet but today I don't feel a thing
I can't decide if I want to go out in the day
I'm quite afraid that the day might wake me

Baby,
Won't you save me?

I'm in the waking hour and I'm the sinner of the town
Usually I would just laugh and smile but today I don't think I'm allowed
I can't decide if I want to go out in the day
I'm quite afraid that the day might wake me

Baby,
Won't you save me?

I don't want to see the daylight
Right now
I don't want to see the daylight
Ever again.
Track Name: Self
We've got a miscommunication
Relayed indifferently
I'd like to entertain this notion
You'd love to see me on my knees
Even if this thing was mutual
Wouldn't want it anyway
Had to break these walls around me
Got to build them up again

Some people just don't care about a thing
(she cuts you deeper)
Nothing that you do will change anything

Thirteen shots to numb me
And the last one made of lead
Nothing's ever gonna change me
I feel like never waking up again
Slowly sinking deeper
Drowning in your wake
Built these walls around me
Nothing's ever getting in again!

Some people just don't care about a thing
(she cuts you deeper)
Nothing that you do will change anything

I have to get away
But I just can't leave
I have to get away...
Track Name: Wolchow
There was a time when we could feel everything
There was a time where we could share, alone
The world keeps on turning
and I don't mind
The world keeps on burning
but we're still alive

Ooh,
today I watched the world as it burned away
Ooh,
we couldn't read the signs it was all in vain
Still you,
only seem to want to cause more pain

There was a time when we were safe from ourselves
There was a time where we could breathe as one
The world keeps on turning
and I don't mind
The world keeps on burning
but we're still alive

Ooh,
today I watched the world as it washed away
Ooh,
we prayed for a sign, it didn't stop the rain
Will you,
ever find a way to ease your pain?
Track Name: Happy
Break my fucking skin
Something may be hidden
Turn me into nothing
Something made me happy
Thought that I was indispensable
Am I happy?
(I am alone, am I all alone?)

Filled this empty hole
I think you may be something
This feeling is a new one
I think you made me happy
Thought that I was indispensable
Am I happy?
(I am alone, am I all alone?)

Can anybody see me
suffering?
Can anybody hear me
screaming?

Thought that I was indispensable.
