Track Name: Northern Storms (Album Edit)
"Unchanging, disdainful apathy.

Unfailing, destructive savagery.

Confusion, and mixed emotions.

Intrusion, endless erosion.

I see her, the way she hides

The Northern Storms

Behind her tearful eyes.

Come winter, come frozen memories

In the ice and snow where the happiness used to be

Frostbitten and fragile heartstrings,

Unwritten resolves unwavering

I feel her toxicity

In the way she sings, in the way she bleeds

She can't love

More than she hates herself,

She can't love

More than she hates herself.

I know your pain,

I know your suffering.

Don't be afraid,

You've not yet lost your wings.

I love you, this is not the end.

I hope you learn

To live and fly again."
Track Name: Endlessly (Muse Cover)
"There's a part of me you'll never know,
The only thing that I'll never show.
Hopelessly, I'll love you endlessly.
Hopelessly, I'll give you everything.
But I won't give you up,
I won't let you down,
And I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes.

It's plain to see, it's trying to speak.
Cherished dreams forever asleep.

Hopelessly, I'll love you endlessly.
Hopelessly, I'll give you everything.
But I won't give you up,
I won't let you down,
And I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes.

Hopelessly, I'll love you endlessly.
Hopelessly, I'll give you everything.
But I won't give you up,
I won't let you down,
And I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes."
Track Name: Ghost
"I'm looking for another sign,

I'm waiting for the day you cross the line,

And it's only a matter of time.

And every little choice we make,

Should you leave or should you stay?

Am I asleep or am I awake?

Slowly fading away,

I can't remember who I used to be.

Slowly chasing away

The person that I do not want to be.

I can't take this anymore,

But I just keep holding on.

I don't love you anymore,

And the ghost of you is gone.

With each and every passing day,

More and more you are afraid,

And there is nothing I can do.

I try, and it's all in vain.

Nothing else to lose and nothing to gain,

And there is no convincing you.

Slowly fading away.

You can't remember who you used to be.

Slowly chasing away

The person that you do not want to be.

I can't take this anymore,

But I just keep holding on.

I don't love you anymore,

And the ghost of you is gone."
Track Name: The Voice of Reason
(Dead inside)

I'm fucked up in the head, I'm drowning in my thoughts.

Everything I've ever loved is all for naught.

All the whispers of the voices echoing in my sleep,

Waking up to find that they will never leave.

It's funny how the words from people I believed,

Are the things that are dead to me and giving me grief.

Maladjusted false intentions and empty promises,

I'm chocking on the lies I love with every breath.

I'm fucking dead inside.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

My voice of reason is choking up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

So much anxiety that keeps me up at night,

I don't know what is left or what is right.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

What kind of fucked up darkness would lead me on like this,

To believe in a world of toxic, tainted bliss?

I can't trust anyone more than I trust myself

To set me from my never-ending hell.

Everywhere I go I'm haunted by the voices of the dead,

The scream inside my ears until I'm seeing red.

They ruin everything, I would do anything,

Why does it have to be this way? Why can't they all just go away?

I can run, but I can't hide.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

My voice of reason is choking up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

So much anxiety that keeps me up at night,

I don't know what is left or what is right.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.
Track Name: Echoes of Betrayal
"And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it's all a lie, and we just live to die.

And it's all a lie, and it's here to die.

I am a walking fucking contradiction,

Dancing with unrelenting cognitive dissonance.

Listening to the echoes of my jeering laughter.

Waltzing in the labyrinths of my beautiful disasters.

The chaos within me is the chaos without me.

Everything I hear is nothing I can see.

Shadows in the echoes, echoes in the shadows,

It comes and it goes.

And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it's all a lie, and we just live to die.

I cannot seem to rid myself of this indecision,

These opposing forces, these juxtaposed volitions.

I feel as though a part of me is clawing at my insides,

And there's nothing left to do and nowhere left to hide.

It's funny, isn't it, how the Demons we try to keep at bay

Will always ignore the doors we close and find another way.

And again it's here, and again it's gone. And again it's here....

And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it goes away, and it's here to stay.

And it's all a lie, and we just live to die.
Track Name: Unbecoming
"And as our bodies move, I listen to the sound

Of dulcet pleasure moans and memories rewound.

Intentions hesitant, desires overwhelm.

Lustful thoughtlessness, reality dispelled.

There's something more to this what we understand,

There's something more to this than passionate command.

Echoing groans and sighs, I hear her woeful plea.

She looked into my eyes and whispered this to me:

I. Just. Want. You. To. Destroy. Me.

I. Just. Want. You. To. Destroy. Me.

Back and forth we go, the spark becomes the flame,

And everything we know will never be the same.

Rearranging fate with every tender touch,

And all the sins we make could never be enough.

Worlds and stars collide, time is obsolete.

Fears within us die, and we become complete.

I hear her call my name, oh so fervently.

She looked into my eyes and said these words to me:

I. Just. Want. You. To. Destroy. Me.

I. Just. Want. You. To. Destroy. Me."
Track Name: Fragmentary
"I will make you bleed,

I will make you scream.

I will let you see

The Demons that live in me.

You're so beautiful,

Untainted and wonderful.

If I don't let you go,

My Darkness will swallow you whole."
