Track Name: Heaven
This whole world, could be mine, and yours too if you take my hand
Through the clouds, we will fly, in the lights of the great divine
This is heaven, harmony, peace we've all earned at last
Beautiful, as we are, engulfed by a storm of love

Gazing at the sky in an open field, the movement of the wind makes me feel so real
Nothing could possibly go wrong right now, I have you all to myself for the night
And we'll rest here forever, feeling so tranquil, we don't have to say any words at all
I love you with all my heart, and I hope I never have to let you go
You are everything in the world to me, you are all I'll ever need
You are all I'll ever want, and I'm sensing that the feeling is mutual
Track Name: Let The State Disintegrate
My love, you look so beautiful, dressed in white and standing tall
Your lips decorated and yearning for the touch, from the one with his face in his hands

You look so amused by surrounding filth, charmed by the confidence of naivety
My juxtaposing demeanor; comatose love, waiting for nothing, dressed up in facade

The music's getting louder, but I'm hearing nothing, lost in the eyes of the love that slipped away
It's bright, it's torture, our fate, our future, Christmas lights laughing in my face

The job's been done, the spreading of joy, holiday cheer from our hands and our mouths
You are still willing to have this dance that I'm putting off due to my fear of your love
You could be so close but I hide away from the things that seem too good to be true
My mouth is so dry, my eyes are so wet from these sleepless nights thinking all about you
Track Name: Fairground Revisited
Right here within boundaries long set, I'm back from another upset
Don't bet on guaranteed regret
I've been here too many times to give myself for love to cope through
Recognizing, I am walking in a loop

Visiting the hell that is the fairground
Luckily this rain will cause the day to drown
Repress these demons in my head that I've found
My eyes are closed, no need to make a sound
Wasting more of my time at the fairground
No one should ever subject themselves to this
Never again will you be the same

Leave me here to rot, it's what you have always done best
Don't mind me as I stand here drenched in the pouring rain
This will all mean nothing one day, I already don't care
I can see where you're going, same place as me somewhere far away

We will die young not caring about anything at all
We will live our few years irresponsibly treating ourselves
Carelessly indulging in whatever comes our way
Whether it be safe or dangerous, whatever feels good

You're nowhere to be found, I almost forgot what you look like
Track Name: All The Lights On
I said all the right words that particular night
I loved better than I had ever loved before
And I was flattered to know that you needed me
So bittersweet, so far away

Mutual craving of death, it's been so heavy way too long
We stared aimlessly at the meaningless horizon
A look in your eyes I have never seen before
It's happening so fast, it's not happening at all

All the lights on, seeing too much, among silence, I felt nothing
Track Name: Yesteryear
In retrospect I'm glad that you never loved me
The way I loved you, it's how I met myself
It was yesteryear when I felt the warmth of your dishonesty
Throughout the most brisk of days, I felt nothing at all but my blind faith

And I still see us in my dreams, years have passed, and we're still lost in the rain, drenched in the beauty of our desire to kill each other

Your dress matching the color of the fear you forced out of my mouth
My mind as contorted as the curls within your pretty hair
Together we lost the entirety of our minds
We were both as good as dead when our eyes fatefully connected

This faulty recollection I have, tells just as much as all of your lies, romanticize, what never was and never will be
Track Name: Futility
It's come to my attention that nothing means anything
I've been wasting all of my life pretending
Curiosity has long escaped me
All in the face of this never-ending futility

I fall asleep to nightmares and wake up to the worst one
No matter how hard I try, I always come up so short

I've lived my life, it's over, there's nothing left for me to do
Tediously telling myself the same lies, such as
I will one day find a meaningful love
There's no chance at all, I'm too far gone

I fall asleep to nightmares and wake up to the worst one
No matter how hard I try, I always come up so short

I want to love again even if it kills me
I need to feel something other than nothing
You're all the same, you're all pretty and boring
Days all come in waves, all with the same motion

I fall asleep to nightmares and wake up to the worst one
No matter how hard I try, I always come up so short
