Track Name: Degenerate Anthem
The verdict is clear in their eyes! Guilty!
No patience for defective minds! Filthy!
Consume that which renders us blind! You pigs!
The only answer I can find... Set fires!

It’s a beautiful sight
All the stars are alight
And the mouth of the night
Gaping wide

I’ve been dreaming of another world, one that I can stand
When I wake I can feel the sand sifting through my hands
We only get so much time to create our self-destruction

It’s a beautiful sight
All the stars are aligned
And if we’re still alive
It’s by design

We need this just to feel alive
To feel like we’re not wasting our lives
Maybe we’re meant for something else
Maybe we’re meant for something

It’s an ominous sign
All the stars are aligned
This may be our last chance

We need this just to feel alive
To feel like we’re not wasting our lives
Maybe we’re meant for something else
Maybe we’re meant for something
Track Name: The Phoenix and the Albatross
Like a flame I am reborn!

I’ve come and gone so many times
I’ve lost count of my lives
Still I can see, on the blade of the sky
The albatross he rides
To take me back to the other side

Don’t you dare feel sorry for me
I live between two worlds and I’ve seen things that you will never see
And every time I die
I return to myself in time
And reignite

I feel no pain in this light
Staring in with wide eyes
This world imprisons me
But my ashes set me free
And I burn the sky

I’ve come and gone so many times
I’ve lost count of my lives
Still I can see, on the edge of my mind
The albatross he flies

I can feel his shadow closing in
Soon it will begin again
But every cloud I leave behind
Dissolves another shadow in my mind

We don’t know how far we can fall
Til we’ve flown as high as we can

It’s no use to hide
We must face our irrational fears and our desperate years
And stand unflinching before the light
We were born to fly
But darling the winds will not take us unless we escape
This elaborately-constructed lie

I will fall and start all over...
Track Name: My Long Dead Queen
A thousand eyes, each one a window to nothing
All my life spent chasing a wisp of smoke in the air
A myth of my own creation
A key to my gilded cage

There’s so much that I don’t understand
About you, about me, about all that I see
In my madness I run to the flames
And my path slowly vanishes under my feet
When something defies logical explanation
Then which of my senses am I to believe?

We rebuilt your castle
At the cost of our lives
Were we meant to survive?
Were we ever alive?
We may never know
So I say....

Come and haunt this room with me, my long-dead queen
And dance this twisted dance of death and revelry
Won’t you haunt this room with me

I’m prepared to follow you to your tomb
Lie beside you until they find you
Cast you down, burn your throne
Making your blood their own

Oh yes, I know what I am to you
An easy sacrifice to the circling vultures

This demon lives inside us all, in our flaws
But I never meant to let you fall into its jaws
As they chew you up and eat you raw

Come and haunt this room with me, my long-dead queen
And dance this twisted dance of death and revelry
Come and haunt this room with me, my long-dead queen
And dance this twisted dance of death and revelry
Won’t you haunt this room with me
Track Name: A Serpent's Confession
The blood is pooling underneath my bed
The lies are boring deep into my head
I rebuild myself by leaving you for dead
My seas run red
Will you forget?

We are turning black and rotting on the vine
All I want is to exchange the mundane for the divine
Light is fading, this fog of doubt distorts my sight.

Crawling through an ever-thickening stream of self-infliction
Drowning slowly
If I gasp for air my lungs will fill with black smoke rising
From your funeral pyre
We choke on good intentions

My every word is poison
Seeping into your soul
Gnawing at you like a promise broken

If I was to die
By your hand tonight,
What a waste of your time...

All I taste is dust
Slithering through this waking nightmare

Still I’m searching for you, kindred spirit
When I find you, I will live forever

But I’m running in circles and I can’t find a way to face you
Maybe one day I’ll finally grow into something almost human
Now I’ve dug so deep that I can’t see the sun!
