1. Death Is Not Defeat (3:45)
When I leave this skin and bone
Beyond my final heartbeat
I'll dismantle piece by piece
And I will know that death is not defeat

When I leave this skin and bone
Beyond my final heartbeat (heartbeat)
I'll dismantle piece by piece
And I will know that death is not defeat

Holding on tight to what's left of our time
We've hidden away
But it's in the design
Why do we fight what we can't define?
Don't be afraid, we all cross the same line

When I leave this skin and bone
Beyond my final heartbeat
I'll dismantle piece by piece
And I will know that death is not defeat

Into the night we burn and rage
In depth we repay for time on this stage
The lights are bright
But don't lose your way
'Cause once it ignites
The flame must decay

Now you're finally complete
I will see you where oceans meet

Past and present merge
Light and dark will converge
Time will overthrow our reign on this throne

The everlasting sleep
Returning through the veil
Far beneath the deep
Another soul sets sail

When I leave this skin and bone
Beyond my final heartbeat
I'll dismantle piece by piece
And I will know that death is not defeat

When I leave this skin and bone
Beyond my final heartbeat
I'll dismantle piece by piece
And I will know that death is not defeat
2. Hereafter (4:15)
Now the oceans have drained out
Can I come up for air
Cause I've been learning to live without
And I'm fighting with broken bones

I wasn't ready for the rapture
We're only passing through
But these words, they mean nothing to me
I know that time will mend this fracture
I've been lost in a maze
And every route I take leads right back to you

Now the oceans have drained out
Can I come up for air
Cause I've been learning to live without
And I'm fighting with broken bones
Now the skies have been blacked out
I've gotta find my way
Cause its been raining but there's a drought
And I'm fighting with broken bones

I've been searching through the wreckage
But it's like standing in the eye of a storm
When will I finally get the message
Some things are broken beyond repair
This is my cross to bear
My own meaningless catastrophe
I never had the time to prepare
Because I never knew that
All my nightmares could come true

Now the oceans have drained out
Can I come up for air
Cause I've been learning to live without
And I'm fighting with broken bones
Now the skies have been blacked out
I've gotta find my way
Cause its been raining but there's a drought
And I'm fighting with broken bones

I've spent my fair share
In the deepest depths of despair
Cause I was too lost down there to care
I wasn't braced for the fallout
Bleigh
I wasn't braced for the fallout

I've been searching through the wreckage
But it's like standing in the eye of a storm
When will I finally get the message
Some things are broken beyond repair

Now the oceans have drained out
Can I come up for air
Cause I've been learning to live without
And I'm fighting with broken bones
Now the skies have been blacked out
I've gotta find my way
Cause its been raining but there's a drought
And I'm fighting with broken bones
3. Mortal After All (3:39)
I guess we're mortal after all

One day all of us will give up the ghost
Too lost in the light to see what matters most
All ends will be met
And all worlds must collapse

Another part of the symphony
Lost between eternity
But God is in the detail
I know that there's a part of me
Doomed to face infinity
Cause every wave has gotta break
Has gotta break

The truth is all of us hostages
Staring down the throat of the screaming abyss
Surrendering in half the battle
But we're powerless to resist

Another part of the symphony
Lost between eternity
But God is in the detail
I know that there's a part of me
Doomed to face infinity
Cause every wave has gotta break

Have you forgotten the deal we made?
I've seen the end and the pain we trade
All these walls will fall
I guess we're mortal after all

The end will come for all of us
This all rests on a fault line
All ends will be met
And all worlds must collapse

Another part of the symphony
Lost between eternity
But God is in the detail
I know that there's a part of me
Doomed to face infinity
Cause every wave has gotta break
Has gotta break

Have you forgotten the deal we made?
I've seen the end and the pain we trade
All these walls will fall
I guess we're mortal after all
4. Holy Hell (4:13)
Maybe we'll never learn?
The fire at the gates is our saving grace
Remember, we were born to burn
There is a holy hell, where we can save ourselves
There is a holy hell, where we can save ourselves

We will be sent cast of paradise
It's a long ascent out of the black
But we all have to sacrifice
Hang the iconoclast
And kiss the feet of the amnesiac
'Cause the moment is dead when I'm lost in the past

Maybe we'll never learn?
The fire at the gates is our saving grace
Remember, we were born to burn
There is a holy hell, where we can save ourselves

But now the rivers are running red
And the skies have been set ablaze
I've been fearing the worst again
Heavenly terrorist
Have you been longing over yesterday?
Don't forget to breathe when the knife begins to twist
Fuck this self pity
It's not that hard to see
We get one chance
These wounds will set me free
There's poison on the key
It brings you to your knees
But even the mountains erode in the rain

A single spark can start a forest fire
Light our match and burn down the empire
There's gold buried in the blue, oh
There's gold buried in the blue

Holy Hell, I've got nothing left to lose
And I can tell there's gold buried in the blue

Maybe we'll never learn?
The fire at the gates is our saving grace
Remember, we were born to burn
There is a holy hell, where we can save ourselves

Holy Hell, I've got nothing left to lose
And I can tell there's gold buried in the blue

But even the mountains erode in the rain
A single spark can start a forest fire
Light our match and burn down the empire
There's gold buried in the blue, oh
There's gold buried in the blue
5. Damnation (4:08)
We suffer to survive
Are we desperate creatures crawling in the dirt?
Or are we lonely preachers hiding our beating hearts?

We sow the wind and reap the storm
Don't say you haven't been warned

No future's written
There's endless possibility

We suffer to survive
If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free
We suffer to survive
Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea?
We suffer to survive

In the kingdom resides behind my own eyes
I've got to catch the stone and cradle the wave
Damnation is just a daydream away
But still we carry on
If I'm God in disguise praying for the rain
And if our demons decide, then is this all in vain?

We sow the wind and reap the storm
Don't say you haven't been warned

It's time to confess
I haunt this flesh
I answer my own prayers
I bid my own despair

No future's written
There's endless possibility

We suffer to survive
If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free
We suffer to survive
Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea?
We suffer to survive

But still, we carry on
There's a lesson in this, what I resist persists
And damnation is just a daydream away

If hope is a prison, then maybe faith will set me free
We suffer to survive
Am I just a victim drifting in the raging sea?
We suffer to survive
6. Royal Beggars (4:01)
Royal beggars, royal beggars
Do you, do you, do you wanna
Live forever, live forever?
Alone, alone, alone

'Cos we're broken
All hope is dead
But we're coping
Somebody save our souls

Like a bird in a cage
Trying to fly away
Is this the price that we have to pay?
Overflowing with rage
Yet we still obey
'Cos we're asleep in a hurricane

Bitter lovers, bitter lovers
Let go, let go, let go, 'cos it's
Now or never, now or never
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in

'Cos we're choking
And left for dead
But we're coping
Somebody save our souls

Like a bird in a cage
Trying to fly away
Is this the price that we have to pay?
Overflowing with rage
Yet we still obey
'Cos we're asleep in a hurricane

Are you listening?
You may not have noticed
We have totally lost our way
Are you lost in the clouds?
Or can you hold your focus?
It's ourselves that we will betray

Are you listening?
You may not have noticed
We have totally lost our way
Are you lost in the clouds?
Or can you hold your focus?
It's ourselves that we will betray

Like a bird in a cage
Trying to fly away
Is this the price that we have to pay?
Overflowing with rage
Yet we still obey
'Cos we're asleep in a hurricane

We sit on a throne waiting for god to bend the knee
But we're nothing more than royal beggars

But I'm as guilty as the next man
Our eyes are open, but we're not listening
7. Modern Misery (4:13)
Seven billion hungry ghosts
Just a parasite killing its host
The emperor wears no clothes, I see those brittle bones
But we're buried by modern misery
Modern misery

There's not enough water in the world
To wash the blood from our hands
We planted a seed, its roots will suffocate the soul
It grows without light and feeds from our bones
Hell must be empty, all the devils are here
Singing us the Lord's Prayer; finally, something that we all share

I won't go to the grave with the song still in me

What are we hiding in the rain?
This is a prison for lost souls
Another life circles the drain
We used to run with the wolves
Now we can't see the forest
'Cause there's no light in the black hole
Don't try and tell me we are blessed
We used to run with the wolves

Are these our new messiahs?
'Cause the saviour has a gun to my head
Don't be fooled by Maya, the kings are all thieves
And the serpents will bite as they please
How has it come to this?

I won't go to the grave with the song still in me
And I won't live like a slave begging from my knees

What are we hiding in the rain?
This is a prison for lost souls
Another life circles the drain
We used to run with the wolves
Now we can't see the forest
'Cause there's no light in the black hole
Don't try and tell me we are blessed
We used to run with the wolves

Seven billion hungry ghosts
Just a parasite killing its host
The emperor wears no clothes, I see those brittle bones
But we're buried by modern misery
Modern misery
I won't live like a slave, I won't beg from my knees
I will not go to the grave with the song still in me

We used to run with the wolves
We used to run with the wolves
We used to run with the wolves
We used to run with the wolves
8. Dying to Heal (3:50)
I found my way to the garden, but I couldn't see
The cliff edge in front of me
No cloud can catch me now

It brings me closer to God
But keeps the dirt in the wound
And now the beast has teeth

I've got my hand on my heart
I thought that I knew the way
But I've been torn apart

Now I know there's a holy grail
But it's beyond the pale
Why must we always fly so close to the sun?
The silhouettes have fallen one by one
'Cause we forget that the sun sets
And we're not long for this world
No cloud can catch me now

I found my way to the garden, but I couldn't see
The cliff edge in front of me

The devil's recruits whisper in my ear
"Go tighten that noose", but it's clear
I've gotta follow the thread
Instead, I'll dream of the end, and I will raise the dead

We're all refusing to feel
And yet we're dying to heal
But there is only now
And there's no easy way out

I found my way to the garden, but I couldn't see
The cliff edge in front of me

Now I know there's a holy grail
But it's beyond the pale
Why must we always fly so close to the sun?
The silhouettes have fallen one by one
'Cause we forget that the sun sets
And now we're not long for this world
No cloud can catch me now

I see no silver linings
When the days are so dark
So hold a flame to these words
Enough pressure will create a diamond, oh

I see no silver linings
When the days are so dark
So hold a flame to these words
Enough pressure will create a diamond
Enough pressure will create a diamond
9. The Seventh Circle (1:48)
I don't wanna dream anymore
I've buried it all too deep
Every waking moment is war
This is the seventh circle

I'm stepping off the edge
I think I'd prefer oblivion
I feel the blood drain from my face
Maybe it's better to never have been

Too afraid to connect
What can I do to repent?
I've got to settle my regrets
But first I've got to accept
Some of us burn too bright
I'm holding on too tight
I think I'm done with reality

I don't wanna dream anymore
I've buried it all too deep
Every waking moment is war
This is the seventh circle

I don't wanna dream anymore
I've buried it all too deep
Every waking moment is war
This is the seventh circle

I don't wanna dream anymore
I've buried it all too deep
Every waking moment is war
This is the seventh circle
10. Doomsday (4:07)
Remember when hell had frozen over?
The cold still burns underneath my skin
The water is rising all around me
And there is nothing left I can give

All these tears I've shed
I saw the wildfire spread
You said you cheated death
But heaven was in my head

They say the good die young
No use in saying what is done is done
'Cause it's not enough
And when the night gives way
It's like a brand new doomsday
What will be will be
Every river flows into the sea
But it's never enough
And when the night gives way
It's like a brand new doomsday
No matter what they say
It's like a brand new doomsday

The embers still glow when I'm sober
The gold in the flame burns brighter now
I have to rebuild, now it's over
Maybe now I'm lost I can live

Souls don't break, they bend
But I sometimes forget
I have to do this for you
And the only way out is through

Death is an open door

Words the prophets said
Still swimming through my head
Now there's no stars left in the sky
'Cause this well will never run dry
What if I completely forget?
What if I never accept?
'Cause when you fade away
It's like a brand new doomsday

They say the good die young
No use in saying what is done is done
'Cause it's not enough
And when the night gives way
It's like a brand new doomsday
What will be will be
Every river flows into the sea
But it's never enough
And when the night gives way
It's like a brand new doomsday
No matter what they say
It's like a brand new doomsday
11. A Wasted Hymn (4:34)
All is not lost, all is not lost
All is not lost, all is not lost
All is not lost, all is not lost
All is not lost, all is not lost

Waiting for a sign
Washed up on the shoreline
I'll always carry the cross
But all is not lost

I just can't relate
A crack in the floodgate
Life comes at a cost
But all is not lost

Is this penance for my sins?
I gave everything for this phantom limb
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Now it's time to sink or swim
I've got nothing except this wasted hymn
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Taking back what's mine
But it's lost in the skyline
A bridge I cannot cross
But all is not lost

Now there's no escape
God, what a sorry state
Love comes at a cost
But all is not lost

Is this penance for my sins?
I gave everything for this phantom limb
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Now it's time to sink or swim
I've got nothing except this wasted hymn
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Can you feel the empty space?
Can you feel the fire at the gates?
Can you live a life worth dying for?
Can you feel the empty space?
Can you feel the fire at the gates?
Can you live a life worth dying for?
Can you feel the empty space?
Can you feel the fire at the gates?
Can you live a life worth dying for?

Is this penance for my sins?
I gave everything for this phantom limb
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever

Now it's time to sink or swim
I've got nothing except this wasted hymn
Holy Ghost
Nothing lasts forever
