Track Name: Hollow
Peering through the condensation
Sifting through the rust
We've arrived where we departed
Circles made in dust
Take me where the signs are clearer
Through these shades of gray
Immolation of my senses
Burn it all away

I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day

Telling tales with smoke and mirrors
Half truths still add up to lies
Violent beauty draws me nearer
Take away my eyes
Descending with the dawn
Falling on and on
Those who seek a new tomorrow
Find tomorrow's gone
I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day
I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day.
Track Name: Violet Sky
Standing here I see the vision
Black Mariah burns in violet skies
Heaven is eclipsed here
Hell is nothing that I fear
In a dying time
In a dying time

Dancing in the fire
Dancing in the shallow spaces
Here is truth Wrapped in lies
White lies spoken soft as razors
White lines trace the path that's clear
So take me there Take me there

Lay me down to sleep now
Watch me dream Watch me die
Lay me down to sleep now
Underneath the violet sky

Rest yet for a little season
Until your fellow men all drown
Rest yet for another reason
Until the sky comes crashing down

Lay me down to sleep now
Watch me dream Watch me die
Lay me down to sleep now
Underneath the violet sky.
Track Name: Perfect (Dream)
When all the angels go away
And chaos rears it's head again
I find it hard not to smile
At the illusion of it all

And I know
It's so hard to see
This perfect light
This perfect dream
I've dreamed a thousand times before
A thousand times Maybe more or less
The price I pay to dream
This perfect dream.

It seems the devil's here to stay
Reflect in me my only friend
The shadows breathe and start to fade
As heaven courses through my veins

And I know
It's so hard to see
This perfect light
This perfect dream
I've dreamed a thousand times before
A thousand times
Maybe more or less
The price I pay to dream
This perfect dream.
Track Name: Six Feet Under
Here I go again she said
I thought that I'd escaped
But he's dragging me down
And pulling me in
I swear that I could die
Or maybe make him think I did
She wonders She wonders

All the pills in the world
In such a little girl
She's feeling like she's ten feet tall
And all the colors in the world
in such a little girl
She's looking like she's six feet under

So she emptied out her case
And spilled upon the floor
Every kind of pill
Every color in the world
She took them one by one
But somehow she had fallen asleep
He finds her now
He can't believe

All the pills in the world
In such a little girl
She's feeling like she's ten feet tall
And all the colors in the world
In such a little girl
She's looking like she's six feet under.
Track Name: Ashes
If I had the world to give
Would it be enough for you?
Place heaven above beneath your feet
If mountains would move for your smile
And angels would sit on pins
Could anything open up your eyes?

Prayers to burn and dust to give
Like manna it falls to the earth
And covers my heart with scented lies

Ashes Ashes
We all fall down.
Track Name: Godspeed
Pounding at your chest with the fist of god
The pounding that burns deep inside of you
Lines that blur the point to your redemption
Perfect dreams come crashing into view

Angels are calling - Godspeed
Whispering softly - Godspeed
Repeating your mantra - Godspeed
Godspeed to you

Spinning tales Speak of some lost innocence
Tears shall wash the walls that never shine
Days spent chasing Shiva in the shallow room
Nights chased with abandon down the line

Angels are calling - Godspeed
Whispering softly - Godspeed
Repeating your mantra - Godspeed
Godspeed to you.
Track Name: White Sand, Red Sand
See the soldiers marching off to war
Watch them like so many times before
Trails of blood lead to the mainland
Trails of dust left in the white sand
Twisted effigies of pain that linger here - Forevermore

Hear the sound of violence in the air
Screams that seem to come from everywhere
This is how we build a nation
We blanket it in our defecation
Sleep in confidence now knowing That God is on our side

We have the right We have the wrong
We have the will to carry on
We close our eyes to count the cost
But what is gained when all is lost?
Track Name: Gun
I've got a passport
I've got a gun
I've got my reasons
Tomorrow I won't see the sun

Another headline
Another frontline
Another timeline
Another deadline

I'll play the martyr
I'll play the game
I'll play it anyway
Cause it's never quite the same
Just close your eyes now
Just close your eyes now
Just close your eyes now
Just say goodbye now

How did I get to this place?
Behind each hollow smile
A hollow life
A shallow face
Too many red lines
Too many white lines
Too many flat lines
Too many deadlines.
Track Name: Common Things
Turn your mind to the brighter things
Turn your eyes to the beautiful
Let the dirt fall from your feet
Let it all seem so wonderful

Close your mind to the world and all it's suffering
Close your eyes to the pain and disease
We're so high above the common things
Heaven is all I can see

Children lie in the bloodied streets
Bodies rot on the killing floor
Turn the station Change your attitude
Give me sunshine Give me more

Turn your mind to the brighter things
Turn your eyes to the beautiful
Let the dirt fall from your feet
Let it seem so wonderful.
Track Name: Grace
How could you forgive?
How could I forget?
Your sweet embrace
In times of regret

A passion like fire
Burns in this place
Still leaves me wanting
Watching you move so pure
In all your grace

Lust can lead a thousand souls astray
And eyes that wander spy their own decay
When heartache comes like waves upon the shore
It drowns the love and leaves you wanting more

A paradise lost
Now Adam repeats his downfall
Tortured and tossed
This darkness fill me as I fall from grace

Empty - Except for the visions of pain
Empty - Inside all this hell that remains
Empty - My soul that still yearns to be free
Empty - Now all of your grace into me

A thousand points of light
Are shining out of you
A thousand points of light
Come streaming into view
A thousand points of light
So bright upon your face
A thousand points of light
Descending from your grace
