1. Waiting For You To Die (4:04)
In another world, I would slay you
I would martyr and mortify
In another world, I would murder
I'd confess and I'd do my time
In another world, I would sing you
A crimson lullaby
But all I am doing is waiting
I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you to die

I've put you on a pedestal it's true
Now I want to kick it from under you
Your neck in a noose
My heart in a whirl
So let the ebony flag unfurl

Your cruellest nightmare is my dream
My dream come true

In another world, I would slay you
I would martyr and mortify
In another world, I would murder
I'd confess and I'd do my time
In another world, I would sing you
A crimson lullaby
But all I am doing is waiting
I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you to die

One push, you're drowning
In the boating lake
At last a drama that you did not fake
Scream for a lifebuoy
But I'd throw a wreath
To honour what is dying beneath

In another world, I would slay you
I would martyr and mortify
In another world, I would murder
I'd confess and I'd do my time
In another world, I would sing you
A crimson lullaby
But all I am doing is waiting
I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you to die

Your cruellest nightmare is my dream
My dream come true

In another world, I would slay you
I would martyr and mortify
But all I am doing is waiting
I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you to die

In another world, I would slay you
I would martyr and mortify
In another world, I would murder
I'd confess and I'd do my time
In another world, I would sing you
A crimson lullaby
But all I am doing is waiting

I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you
I'm waiting for you
Waiting for you to die
2. Lighthouse (4:16)
3. The Broken Ones (5:08)
Arise, my friend, we're nearly late
Still drunk as lords at ten past eight
Since fortune fled we're creeping back
To skies that we once knew
From blue to black
From blue to black

Through damnation, we run
With two broken legs
And we find a refuge in our halo's crack
Trying to change the whole world
Hearts replaced with stones
We're not the heroes, my friend
We are the broken ones

Get up my friend, it's not too late
We have a cause, we can control our fate
Wipe off the dirt and feign a smile
At least just for a while, just for a while

Through damnation, we run
With two broken legs
And we find a refuge in our halo's crack
Trying to change the whole world
Hearts replaced with stones
We're not the heroes, my friend
We are the broken ones

Run, run, it's not too late
Run, run, control your fate
Run, run, it's not too late
Run, run, the wise don't wait

My love, you know what we fight for
Take a run at bastards all
With words they hope will break your bones
Never forget
We are the broken ones
We are the broken ones

Through damnation, we run
With two broken legs
And we find a refuge in our halo's crack
Trying to change the whole world
Hearts replaced with stones
We're not the heroes, my friend

For our dreams, I would fight
With two broken arms
Still believing our life
Has the chance to charm
We can change this cruel world
Maybe one fine day
We'll walk as heroes, my friend
But not today
4. My Better Me (3:41)
My better me
Would give you what you need
And kill the speed
But that ain't me
That's just my better me

My better me
Would bring you through the night
And make it right
But that ain't me
I'm not my better me

He is so much more than me
More than I will ever be
My better me, my better me
When I turn to walk away
He would listen to you, stay
He's not like me
My better me

My better me
Is not so mortified
Fucked up inside, but that ain't me
That's just my better me

My better me
Would leave you when it hurts
Would stop the words, your misery
I'm not my better me

He is so much more than me
More than I will ever be
My better me, my better me
When I turn to walk away
He would listen to you, stay
He's not like me
My better me

My better me, my better me
My better me, my better me

My better me is not illogical
Emotional, from time to time, so cynical
No bullet and no cannonball
Is never the epitome
Of arrogance and bigotry
No advocate of irony
No that is me
I'm not my better me
5. Ribcages (4:08)
There's a sack upon my bag I carry alone
For every tear, I've ever cried
Inside there's a stone

It's so heavy, oh, so heavy

Suffocate under the weight, but I can't put it down
Like the lonely king
Who has to put on his crown
It's so heavy, oh, so heavy

I can't breathe
Nothing ever changes
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Set me free
Nothing ever changes
Heart's locked in ribcages
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Heart's locked in ribcages

Prisoners inside my mind
I'm shackled in chains
Like the prison cell comes from inside my veins
I can't break free, I can't break free

This pressure in my chest is always in flame
And all my prayers to God
Are always the same
Won't you please,
Give me peace

I can't breathe
Nothing ever changes
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Set me free
Nothing ever changes
Heart's locked in ribcages
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Heart's locked in ribcages

I can't breathe
Nothing ever changes
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Set me free
Nothing ever changes
Heart's locked in ribcages
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Heart's locked in ribcages

There's a sack upon my back I carry alone
For every tear, I've ever cried
Inside there's a stone
6. Wander In Sable (3:56)
Cross backwoods of pain
And hillsides of fear in frightening clouds
Through oceans of harm
And we won't retrieve till salvation is ours

A wall of black
Come fall into line
Tonight, tonight

Wander in sable
Rethink and restart
Together we'll conquer this war in our hearts
So join us and see
You won't come to grief
Walking this long rocky road
Called road of relief

We travel the land, pass funk holes and forts
And mighty towers
Let hate merge to hope
No, we won't retain till the future is ours

A wall of black
Be part of the sway
Today, today

Wander in sable
Rethink and restart
Together we'll conquer this war in our hearts
So join us and see
You won't come to grief
Walking this long rocky road
Called road of relief

Wander in sable
Rethink and restart
Together we'll conquer this war in our hearts
So join us and see
You won't come to grief
Walking this long rocky road

Wander in sable
Rethink and restart
Together we'll conquer this war in our hearts
So join us and see
You won't come to grief
Walking this long rocky road
Called road of relief
7. The Devil You Know (4:08)
Spit venom at me my bleak enemy
The Devil you know
Consistently cold, no love to withhold
The Devil you know

Salt in my wounds, but I don't resent
This cleansing contempt
As I fake a desperate bliss
That alchemy cannot fix

This shameless disdain keeps both of us sane
The Devil you know
An honest untruth we both fail to prove
The Devil you know

A future doomed as a malcontent
In loveless lament
So I wake to infinite lists
Of agonies that persist

Words insincere, gracelessly rehearsed
Keeping us here, this abyss deserved
Oh, the Devil's closer than we admit
We turn a blind eye to make someone fit

Spit venom at me, a brief remedy
The Devil you know
This shameless disdain profoundly profane
The Devil you know

In threadbare rooms so little is left
That we represent
And we face a festering kiss
That apathy can't dismiss

A poison we take to lessen the ache
The Devil you know
So freely enslaved from cradle to grave
The Devil you know
The Devil you know
