Track Name: Don't Let Me In
DON'T LET ME IN

You're the furthest thing from my mind
It's been days since I've left you behind
You've been trouble you've been pain
I'm insane I'm knocking

Don't let me in
Don't you let me in you know that
You can't let me in
Don't let me in

I can see you for who you are now
You're no better than I have always known
I must see your breath recede
This is all I need so

Don't let me in
Track Name: Bats Left the Belfry
BATS LEFT THE BELFRY

Living rooms full of deadbeats decaying
Couches brim with stiffs overplaying their
Will to endure
Sleeping rooms full of eyes looking out for
Glitter they might see as eternity
Anything pure

All of the time we're wearing lies our
Days and nightfalls call for what we do
Just look away
Merciful sleep redeem us all from what
We endure when night falls on what should
Be rational day

The bats left the belfry
Moved into my TV
They're selling crackpots' bread and milk
All hail the shopping spree

Sleeping rooms full of eyes looking out for
Glitter they might see as eternity
Anything pure
Merciful sleep redeem us all from what
We endure when night falls on what should
Be rational day

All hail the prophets wearing ties
Doomsayers gurus preachers new age nuts
Turn shit to gold
Astrologers witches shamans freaks
Exorcist bishops psycho priests would you
Leave me alone

The bats!
Track Name: Digging Deep
DIGGING DEEP

There's no respite from what I do
From my disdain
And I can't help but hurting you
Forever same
Can't keep myself from lashing out
Cause so much pain
As this is all that I'm about
That is why

I feel like digging deep now
I need to seal my fate
I feel like digging deep 'cause
The deeper I dig
The clearer my hate

I've been in rage since I can tell
Since was born
And every day that I'm not well
I'm more forlorn
I cannot change and I can't fight
It's all in vain
And I will never make it right
Because I

I feel like digging deep now
Track Name: FYI
FYI

Every day is first
A plan that we've rehearsed
A scheme that we've devised
The ends have been surmised
Tomorrow's set in stone
Our future's been foretold
Our charter's stamped and signed
Our gun sights are aligned
No exits to behold
No way to fall behind
We're blind

We pillage as we breathe
We rape each time we wake
You cower as we seethe
You starve so we can take
And everything's a ruse
Your choices are a lie
You will pay your dues
We will suck you dry
No exits to behold
No time to wave your hand
Goodbye

From the dawn of days
Throughout the tides of time
The means have been unchanged
To an end sublime
It's easy to succumb to
And grand to persevere
A haven we can run to
And overcome our fear
Clinging to the things we hoard
In the name of our Lord
All dies

You'll endure it
And applaud
That is why I
Will stay in this place
You will cheer while
We maraud
And FYI
We love to debase
Track Name: Lost Things First
LOST THINGS FIRST

Mist hides the dreamers on Monday at one
Stifles the screamers feeling alive tonight
As they walk the plank, refuse to look down

They drag their nails along fences untouched
They grasp at rails as they're finding their way tonight
But they're marching with us

Night bonds with darkness and days are a plight
We know that we're leaving, nobody smiles tonight
As we walk the plank, refuse to look down

Hard is the walk even harder the end
Superfluous talk while we're trying to bend our time
And refuse to look down

I will stay here
Trying to forget
The lost things

Hard is the walk even harder the end
Superfluous talk while we're trying to bend our time
As we walk the plank, refuse to look down

Hopefully you'll be where you can be found
I feel, I'm a dreamer, feeling alive tonight
As I walk and look down

I will stay here
Trying to forget
The lost things first

Don't tell me it's over while I'm killing me
Don't you claim the good times
While you're reeling me in
In, reeling me in

Hopefully you'll be where you can be found
I feel I'm a dreamer feeling alive tonight
As we walk the plank, refuse to look down

Going down
We're going down
Track Name: Pendulum Pet
PENDULUM PET

Relentless gaps within my mind
That I must fill with what I find hurt so
I hang my head I whine in pain
Without your guidance and disdain don't know
A tinge of hope a trace of fear
I raise my eyes as you appear so true
I'll grovel gladly and I'll fetch
I'll heel roll over I'll play catch for you just you

I'll be loyal I'll be true
There's not a thing that I won't do for you
I will listen I'll believe
I'll never stray or dare deceive, won't go
You pat my head I'll wag my tail
I'll do your bidding never fail or think
I will bark and bite and squeal
I'll even die I'll even kill for you
Just

Do what you do I will be there for you
Whatever you say I'll be ready to play
Do what you want but just take me to bed
Whatever your whim I'm your pendulum pet

Your pet
Your pet
Track Name: The Warrior's Armpit
THE WARRIOR'S ARMPIT

Idle years-long dangling from the stools of seedy bars
Wide-eyed aimless ramblings etched in multitudes of scars
Great pale warrior readies scores of skills and checks his gear
Lays out all his snares and orders yet another beer

Seeking ancient friendships locking gazes eye to eye
All the good intentions cause your day to go awry
Hours fleet, the mind tricks dispel delusions of escape
What began as hey hullo ends up as mental rape

You hope that you'll be spared but there's no way to get away
You've been tricked and trapped oh Lord indeed you've fallen prey
You'd think that daylight kept this fabled warrior out of sight
But all this barstool bravery needs no cover of the night

Glass-rimmed words run wild and wide their angle of attack
Cruising memory lanes until the ramblings fade to black
Revisited through decades past and yet they still persist
While helpless prey to barstool warrior begs him to desist

Resistance futile eyes light up in glimmerings of wrath
Neighbours to the warrior's armpit wish he took a bath
Up he rises finally righteous anger fuels his fist
Now it's time for all to feel the bang when he gets pissed
Track Name: Rally the Fallen
RALLY THE FALLEN

These times are for the blind
The times are for the deaf
Nobody's speaking
Submit and look away
Assent to stay in play
Everyone's sleeping
Stillness in darkness and silence
These times are for the blind
The times are for the deaf
Nobody's seeking

Now is the time to rally the fallen
It's about time to rise up and raise all hell
What they've been sowing should reap them
Hound them
Sound the knell
Now is the time to wake up and do it well
Time to
Sound the knell

When every breath's a lie
The treason's unperceived
Senseless persistence
The motions we go through
We must conceive anew
Tireless resistance
But stillness and darkness and silence
These times are for the blind
The times are for the deaf
Nobody's thinking
Track Name: Keep It Simple
KEEP IT SIMPLE

Here's to my new realisation
Baby this time around we should keep it simple
No debates and no complications
In for pennies or pounds we should keep it simple

Go ahead don't you wait let's just get it on
Do not doubt deviate and we can't go wrong
Don't look back hesitate we are at full speed
Keep it firm keep it straight simple's all we need yeah yeah

It's our chance to just do it my way
Baby this time around we should keep it simple
Play the game as I think we should play
Don't you frown keep it down baby keep it simple

But I thought it would be fantastic
It almost seemed like we could get along
Who would have thought that this would
Turn into a tired old song
No no no
Track Name: I Found Them Twitching
I FOUND THEM TWITCHING

It's seeping through my body
It's oozing through my brain
I can't unsee the blight and
It's driving me insane

No way to close my eyes and
Too late to turn away
The time from here on out will
Keep feeding my dismay

'Cause I found them twitching oh no
'Cause I found them twitching oh no no

Attempts to disremember
And hopes to disregard
Just fuel the searing blaze
And feed on the corpses charred
