Track Name: Crown
CROWN

Treading in a sea of fear
We were never meant to end up here
Wounded from another arrows sting
Wearied by the roads of suffering
Though we’ve fallen in this battle
The war has already been won
In our darkest hours shadows
We shall surely overcome

And I know...Who I am...What is mine which was written

Chorus:
We fight till daylight
They die for a lie they don’t understand
We die everyday
We run for a crown that rusts not or fades

I don’t want to turn away
Promises that reign beyond the grave
Holding on to what is true
Never looking back or question you
And I know that you are with me
And I needn’t be afraid
In the shelter of your wings now
We will rise amongst the Flames

And I know.. Who I am.. What is mine which was written

Chorus 2x

Rusts not or fades...
Rusts not or fades...
Rusts not or fades...

We die everyday
We run for a crown that rusts not or fades

Chorus 2x
Track Name: For Fame
FOR FAME

What have you done now girl
Swallowed up this world
Traded all your pearls for swine now your running out of time
You think you have it all
You think you’ll never fall away from grace
You lost your soul and your far from saving grace

Now you feel so shallow all so hollow always out of place..
All the cards are laid just
play the pawn and save the game

Chorus:
What do you wan’t from me
You beg to just complain to me...Anymore
You sold your soul for fame
Can’t buy it back again darling...Anymore

What have you done now girl
Now all your friends are turned away from you
Your all alone and there’s nothing left to prove..
So was it worth the price
Your soul you sacrificed fortune & fame
It goes down sweet but there’s a bitter aftertaste
Now you feel so shallow all so hollow always out of place
All the cards are laid just
play the pawn and save the game

Chorus 2x
Track Name: This Goodbye
THIS GOODBYE

Searching waiting for an answer still to come
Feeling like noone can hear me at all
All of my pillars they crumble and fall

The ending to my story isn’t written yet
I don’t know what I will do
If it goes on like this

Chorus:
If there has to be an answer
Choice between the two
I am sorry to say this goodbye to you
Maybe in another life I wouldn’t have to choose
Then I wouldn’t have to say this goodbye to you

Nothing ever changes here and nothing ever will
There is no more strength and there is nothing left to kill
I’ve exhausted every ounce of faith I’ve had to give

The ending to my story isn’t written yet
I don’t know what I will do
If it goes on like this

Chorus

Do you remember the words that you said
And all the places that we planned to be
The rest of world seems so obsolete to me and you

Chorus
Track Name: Trust
TRUST

You were always there
darkest could never shade the sun
You shine on me

Wish...You’d open your heart
And see

Chorus:
No matter what they say
I will be your friend
No matter what they pay
I won’t sell you out

Plant this seed with me
Trust in Love to take us to the bridge
And it’s blossoming
We have one more chance
Take it now know there’s no turning back
Let’s make it last

Wish...You’d open your heart
And see

Chorus 2x

The time has come
For us to decide
Which way...That we...Will go

Please forgive me
I stood by your side
Now you hang me
Leave me out to die

No matter what they say...

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Tranquility
TRANQUILITY

Shiny idols of dead hollow vanity
These won't save you so why are you on your knees

And comes to rob kill & distort the seed
Would you rather be lied to than really set free

So just be
So just breathe
So just see

Chorus:
Outside the walls of society
From the ills of you and me
Lie the waters still and serene
My piece of tranquility

It consumes me the fire that burns within
Wash away all the lies from the curse of sin
Sealed by blood in the hands of the one who saves
Know we’re never alone and I hear him say just

Be
So just Breath
so just believe
So just see

Chorus

Find me find me find me...
Find me find me find me...

Chorus

Outside the walls of society
From the ills of you and me
Lie the waters still and serene
My piece of tranquility
My piece of tranquility
My piece of tranquility
Track Name: Marie
MARIE

She’s like an unmarked grave / her eyes were made to enslave
She’ll carve your heart on your sleeve
Her violent passionate ways / have kindled fleshly disgrace
My body soul quenched in flames

Chorus:
I need you I bleed you
Never felt so alone
I believed you I’m deceived by you
Come away take me home

She’ll make your dreams come true/ black widows lips & legs too
Your love is webbed in her tomb
Her cold embrace will suffice / for your decay or delight
Hold on and turn out the lights tonight

Chorus 2x

Loose the noose on me...It’s not fair

And she tastes so sweet...You never get enough
You Make my soul complete...Yeah

I need you I bleed you
Never felt so alone
I believed you I’m deceived by you
Come away take me home
I need you I bleed you
Never felt so alone
I believed you I’m deceived by you
Come away take me home...Home...Home
Track Name: Precious
PRECIOUS

Show me love / Make me afraid
Push me around again and again
You paint a picture / Throw me on the wall
Does it make you happy now

Chorus:
All of my life
Where have you been?
I’ve been alone in this darkness
No matter how hard I try
It slips away
Everything precious in my life

Your feelings hurt / I’m feeling worse
You can’t except me for who I am
Put me in your corner / Box to make me feel
Like you’re all I’ll ever have

Chorus

Life...Life...Life...
Life...Life...Life...

Chorus 2x

Life...Life...
Track Name: Belladonna
BELLADONNA

There was a time when I trusted you and my
Fears could fall away
Whisper to me another poison seed and I
Drink your bitter shame
Peel the scars again
And pour the venom in

This wouldn’t be the first time
You have let me down
Want you to know

I just want you to know that you’re beautiful
And I love the way you smile
Oh yeah

More you would push I couldn’t pull away
And we were soulfully led astray
Turn every page for the lust you crave
Our letters carve the sins we wage
Peel the scars again
And pour the venom in

This wouldn’t be the first time
You have let me down
Want you to know

I just want you to know that you’re beautiful
And I love the way you smile
Oh yeah
And I die every time
Never belly full
Won’t you burn with me tonight
Oh yeah

Burn me tonight...Oh woah...

You’ll never be a part of me
I don’t need your disease
You’ll never be a part of me
I don’t need your disease

Peel the scars again

This will not be the first time
I will let you down
Want you to know

I just want you to know that you’re beautiful
And I love the way you smile
Oh yeah
And I die every time
Never belly full
Won’t you burn with me tonight
Oh yeah
Track Name: Curse
CURSE

Another gift of faith
Misplaced I erase
All the spells you placed
On me
Never could of worked
I don’t believe a word
That you couldn’t keep
A curse for yourself

Chorus:
Can’t wake me up / Fate
Can’t make me up / Shame
Can’t wake me up / Fate
Can’t make me up

The soils dry and dead
The city’s painted red

The golden god’s are fed
Souls for sale
There’s no roots in the tree
No harvest for the feed
Babylon is free
One world slavery

Chorus

Underneath the plastic skin
Inside the truth lies deep within
Green envy all their sins
A fortress plagues his kin
The hidden leader leads astray
The dawn of evil fades with grace

Chorus

Hey...
Can’t make me up
Hey...Hey...
Track Name: The Verdict
THE VERDICT

Put me on trial
Open my file
Cuz the judge is a jester
And the king is a fool
I’ve done some wrong
I will admit
But you go along
Your righteoussness

Your honor I’m guilty
Guilty to the grave

Chorus:
The verdict is in once again
The accuser is under my skin
Rot away all the flesh of my sin
Pour your blood over me I depend
From the inside it eats out a hole
Hollows and murders my soul
Though a crack of light glitters the stage
I still feel so weak and ashamed

Now I’ll testify
My story is clean
Though I am filthy
At least I have him

Your honor I’m guilty
Guilty to the grave

Chorus

I still feel so weak and ashamed..

Thank you for giving me which I don’t deserve
Incarcerated from birth upon the world
Emancipated by grace abound and pure
Death can never find me now
You have paid the cure....

Your honor I’m guilty
Guilty to the grave

Chorus

The verdict is in once again
The accuser is under my skin
Rot away all the flesh of my sin
Pour your blood over me I depend...
Track Name: Same Song
SAME SONG

A bastard at conception ring takes the place a mistake..
A love that is cherished so purposely surface & fake..
Ashamed & afraid the child grows in shadows alone..
Nothing or noone to hold on to or call his own..
He runs away...

Chorus:
You keep on singing the same song
You tell me that I’m to blame
I’ll keep on singing the same song
Over and over again...

Slipping through the cracks of the system he slithers like a snake
Struggles to survive stealing all he can just to eat..
Screaming now ceiling is peeling I feel for my faith..
Trapped in my body these demons destruct and escape..

Burning with pleasure this flesh is so weathered and raped
I feel so tired desire has made me less..Can I be whole again..

Chorus

Well it’s almost over now
All this pain that I’ve allowed
to nest inside my soul.. I’ve got to let it go
Well it’s almost over now
All this pain that I’ve allowed
to nest inside my soul.. Let it go....

Chorus
