Whisper 03:41
LYRICS Sit down, whisper all to me! Lay down, whisper everything! In the haunt of giants you will never escape In the haunt of giants they see your every mistake They hear your every word because this lie will be the death of you They see your every move even the sand that you’ve been swimming through I’m not trying to bring down the day Alls I’m saying is that sometimes it’s best just to look away You know better not too step over that bridge and go down that path You know damn well where that leads Some things are better left unsaid. (So don’t even try and say it) Some things are better left unread. (Put that book away! ‘cause you know damn well how it ends) Sit down, whisper all to me Lay down, whisper everything ‘Come here my dear! Let’s get into this A piece of the puzzle has gone astray” Your feelings unspoken to anyone… This could all come undone by only a thread These secrets, you try your best to hide them away Sometimes life comes up with a better idea Sit down, whisper all to me Lay down, whisper everything Sit down, whisper all to me Whisper… Stop thinking, Stop the fantasy Stop dreaming. For your family Stay the course; it’s not your choice If not for you, for them! ::puke::

LYRICS What am I doing here? I took a wrong step Heavy in distress…I forgot to tell you Everything’s empty. Now try to be happy Avow! Avow! Avow! Don’t slow me down. You Need To Stop Doing That! This is what life looks like, when you’re always saying yes Your world’s turned to shit, still you’re OK with it? Are you happy in this company? You doubt. You doubt. You doubt It slows you down. You Need To Stop Doing That! You have to be comfortable… You have to be comfortable … You have to be comfortable… You have to be comfortable What are you doing here? You’ve picked the wrong door little boy. Surrounded by leeches. Thick as thieves. You’ll never be seen without a smile. You’ll only be seen bracing the stab of his return! peepee You Need To Stop Doing That!

Undersung 03:34
LYRICS Getting down to the wire. Your eyes are playin’ tricks on you. The time is now or never. Will you cave or will you come through? Feel the flames and feel the fire. There’s no turning back on your love. See the eyes as they conspire, like a hundred arrows aimed at you. So don’t you be afraid They’ll never remember you anyway... Undersung. Left with none. Lost at sea. Only me. You’re undersung! Getting down to the root. Your mind is playing games with you. Always on the wrong side of the conversations…you wish hadn’t started So don’t you be afraid They’ll never remember you anyway... Undersung. Left with none. Lost at sea. Only me. You’re undersung! Getting down to the wire. Your eyes are playin’ tricks on you. The time is now or never. Will you cave or will you come through? You’re Undersung. Left with none. Lost at sea. Only me. You’re undersung!

LYRICS I am your mime. I am your tormentor Look at me. I’m fine Just another forced perspective From here it looks like a nightmare Battered and bruised. You’re used. You Lose From here it’s just your grand delusion Grasping at straws from the bottom of the barrel I’ve been here before I’m no stranger to this subject I’ve always had that question behind me It’s just the peace of no mind (it’s just the peace of no mind!) In all due time You’ll be something worse than a monster Live in the lie Just another day you imposter! From here it looks feels like daydream Tattered and torn. You’re born. Stay on the floor From here it’s just your evolution Playing your part. You smile through chattering teeth I’ve been here before I’m no stranger to this subject I’ve always had that question behind me It’s just the peace of no mind From here it looks like a nightmare Battered and bruised. You’re used. You Lose From here it’s just your grand delusion Grasping at straws from the bottom of the barrel I’ve been here before I’m no stranger to this subject I’ve always had that question behind me It’s just the peace of no mind it’s just the peace of no mind. It’s just the peace of no mind ‘cause you’re no mind of mine In all due time You’ll be something worse than a monster

Gutter Dream 03:13
LYRICS Now’s the time, give up the lie Come forward little one but pay no mind To the man behind the curtain, yhe man behind the mask He’s nothing more than a figment Of your lowly past Tomorrow is a knife, although not even here yet It still twists and turns and get’s the best of you I bet If I am unclear. If I’m imprecise It’s just because I heard a voice (The voice of no reason) Don't Make This Out To Be Something It's Not You’re living a gutter dream You had your chance. You had the past in the palm of your broken hands But there’s mud in your eyes and with a mouth full of flies You keep stammering and stuttering, blabbering and blubbering (What are you really trying to say?) Don’t make yourself to be something you’re not You’re living a gutter dream This is where the waters have placed you You’ve gotten this far haven’t you? Even though it’s just a dream. Dreams they can be broken. But you’re no stranger to this You’re no stranger… When years fly by in a blink of and eye and you’re left with no ground Nothing more to be lost, nothing more to be found It’s purgatory. It’s limbo... And all because I listened to that voice (The voice of no reason) Don't Make This Out To Be Something It's Not You’re living a gutter dream Don’t make yourself to be something you’re not You’re living a gutter dream

LYRICS Have you looked at yourself in the mirror? Can I make myself any clearer? You sick pathetic, waste of lifeBegone! Get out of my sight Too much noise coming from the void I still don’t think you were in the band Whiddly, whiddly, whiddly woo Pickly, pickly, pickly poo You come up here to talk to me? There’s something still missing In spite of all the evidence I still don’t believe you were in that band!! Have you looked at yourself in the mirror? This story is getting weirder How long will you continue this festered quest? Behold! You got yourself into this mess. Too much blame. Too much shame Don’t quit your day job...just quit. Wow wow wow wee! Look at my fingers look at me! It’s so many things you’ve already heard before. It’s gonna be amazing! Man, this song takes me back! How good the money? Do you think you’re funny? Show some respect or I’ll show you my bummy Oh you’ve got money!?! So what! It’s not funny... Let me get this straight of what this song is all about Now that I’m on the other side I can choose to push you out You’re still just a little man You’re still just as weak my friend What difference does it make you’re still only heir apparent You’re still just a little man You’re still just as weak my friend What difference does it make you’re still only heir apparent Hey ya know, it’s getting old It might be time to find a job Hey ya know, it’s time to go You’ve turned into a fat old slob

LYRICS Quiet you! Time to meet your shadow Another warm welcome “I’m sorry, where was I?” Step inside this forfeit kingdom “Where the streets are heavy with thoughts!” Face the fact that today was all you needed “Throw some meat in a bag and call it a meal!” It may have escaped your notice under partly cloudy skies. Never mind me. Nevermind me. “Have the good sense to keep your mouth shut!” Never mind me. Nevermind me. “Time to put on your big boy pants and get to work” Moo!

Gehenna 01:50

Heroes 04:29
LYRICS Colder. It’s getting colder. I don’t know how much more I can take Lost behind the shadows of a man you never knew Empty. I’m feeling empty. A vacant soul. A vacant mind. Help me. Can you help me? Don’t waste your time by wasting mine Look beyond the shadows of a man you thought you knew. Your heroes left you (Left in a sea of obscurity) Your idols failed you (Chasing a dream that ends in misery) Your friends betrayed you (Turning their backs on recent memory) Now all you’re left with are these dark streets. Dying. Am I dying? Or is this just the back of beyond? Crying. I can’t stop crying. I guess it’s worth the tears after all Look beyond the shadows of a man you thought you knew. Dreaming. Am I dreaming? I’ve yet to wake up, so we will see. Believing. I’ve stopped believing. Now we call you a memory. Lost behind the shadows of a man you thought was you. Your heroes left you (Left in a sea of obscurity) Your idols failed you (Chasing a dream that ends in misery) Your friends betrayed you (Turning their backs on recent memory) Now all you’re left with are these dark streets. Move son! Be brave for as long you can. March on for no tomorrow Your heroes have all gone away

LYRICS Mother is coming to take me home. I know Father; sadly, he won’t be there when I get home. When you were around, you were the silence, the serenity. You were the safety in sound. “If you don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind my...” All the other kids making faces at you Do they know what you’ve seen in shadows? Mother is coming to take me home. I know Father; sadly, he won’t be there when I get home. When you were around, you were the triumph, the tranquility You were the safety in sound. “If you don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind my...” All the other kids playing games without you Do they know what you’ve heard in echoes? Mother is coming to take me home. I know Father; sadly, he won’t be there when I get home. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread! Till you return to the ground For you are dust and to dust you’ll return. “If you don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind. I don’t mind. You don’t mind my...” All the other kids that were looking at you Couldn’t see his shadow behind you Father; sadly, he won’t be there when I get home. Mother is coming to take me home. I know Father; sadly, he won’t be there when I get home.

The Grim 09:13
Lyrics: I - "THE GRIM" We love you We miss you We warned you Goodbye We’ll hear you in a passing conversation We love you We need you We’ll join you Sometime Did you get your chance? Did you even bother? Before the Grim came and took our brother Did he have a choice? Did he have a prayer? For the grim he doesn’t care Shudder to live Shudder to dream These are the circumstances I’m considering II – "CONSIDERING THE CIRCUMSTANCES" You’ve had long enough Now it’s time to go Take your work home with you Don’t forget to turn off the lights before you’re through Considering the circumstances now Best not to know I’m considering the circumstances now Let it rest (let him rest) Considering the circumstances now Best not to know I’m considering the circumstances now Let it rest Considering the circumstances now Best not to know III - "OOH SKIP" Little Skippy Anderson, waiting for the bus Waiting for the mourning to come Little Skippy Anderson, you’re taking too damn long Are you waiting for your time in the sun? All of the days and all of the ways They’ve all disappeared in seconds to dust C’est la vie. C’est la mort Guess you had to go Guess you had to leave us lonely IV – "A GREAT WAY TO RUIN A GOOD DAY" “C’mon what the f.....!!!” There ya go you did it again You let them get the best of you my friend I said it once I’ll say it again You were never cut out for the shit You pose. You posture. You deflect. You foster When life confronts you in your face. You find something else to worry about. Oh no, I hear him coming closer Lord I’m not ready. I’m not ready for this storm Father why have you forsaken me? What a great way to ruin a good day! I can’t help but smile, that you think you’re steering the ship. You think you’re in control? You’re sitting on his lap you bitch You fool. You clown. Stand in the corner and don’t make a sound Because no one would hear you anyway, would they? WOULD THEY!!?!??!!? Oh no, I hear him coming closer Lord I’m not ready. I’m not ready for this storm Father why have you forsaken me? A great way to ruin a good day! V – "DWELL IN THE DUST" “Ha ha ha! Fooled you! First you were swimming in sand, now you’re dwelling in the dust!” Welcome to my world How do you like it so far? Make yourself comfortable. Grab a drink, grab a chair “You’ll be here for awhile and by for “awhile” I mean FOREVER!” We are sorry. We didn’t mean to scare you BOO! The slower the knife The longer the sleep The slower the life The longer you’ll dream This all your doing This all by your design So sleep in the bed that you’ve made And be happy to dwell in the dust next to all of us VI - "A GRIM REPRISE" We loved you We missed you We warned you Goodbye “Did you get your chance? Did you even bother? Before the grim came and took our brother” Did you get your chance? Did you even bother? Before the grim came and took our brother Did he have a choice? Did he have a prayer? For the grim he never cared... You’ve had long enough Now it’s time to go... “Bye!”
