Track Name: Doubt
There's a lock on this door
protecting me from beyond
preventing my hands
from venturing on

theres a lock on this door
feeding the enemy
sinking my ships at sea
and mocking my core

there's a lock on this door
it's not for the world to see
it echoes my fallacies
in calamitous roar

And it's slipping from my mind
at the edge of my perception
I'll always be confined
to this rationalization

there's a lock on this door
writing my eulogy
gently reminding me
of things I ignore

there's a lock on this door
it's not for the world to see
it echoes my fallacies
a calamitous roar

there's a lock on this door

And it's slipping from my mind
at the edge of my perception
how it feels to be always be confined
to this rationalization

there's a lock on this door
toting its honesty
grinning deceivingly
at things I adore

there's a lock on this door
Track Name: Clementine
When she killed my brother
I didn't tell a soul
had a passion like no other
took over control
turned my vision into static
my life into a daze
lord I didn't even panic
I set everything ablaze

Clementine Clementine
be my lovely valentine
'cause I resign, yes I resign
I'll work for you all the time

I need you

she's a cut throat menace
keeping us alive
taking something from within us
so she can survive
been to Rome and Venice
where she built her hive
making holy men to sinners
as soon as they arrive

Clementine Clementine
be my lovely valentine
'cause I resign, yes I resign
I'll work for you all the time

I need you

Well I'm sorry honey bunny
but this isn't gonna work
and I know you think it's funny
when you make them go berserk

Clementine Clementine
be my lovely valentine
'cause I resign, yes I resign
You tell me to run

Well I'm sorry honey bunny
but this isn't gonna work
and I know you think it's funny
when you make them go berserk
Track Name: Burn
If I had a choice I'd tear it asunder
so the flame in my chest was free to wander
and the fire can burn

and I've tried my best just to feel so weak to no avail

if it was allowed they'd get you to stay
as much as they tried to put you away
and they'll make your decisions if you don't let go

it's yours to keep
and I've tried my best
just to feel too weak
now take it all
it's yours to keep
and I've tried my best
just to feel too weak
to no avail

you're trying to shout but nothing comes out
no one can tell you're struggling to yell
if you keep moving forward you can't let them know
you did everything different you didn't let go

and if it meant anything
you could have had every thing


it's yours to keep
and I've tried my best
just to feel too weak
now take it all
it's yours to keep
and I've tried my best
just to feel too weak
to no avail

and if it meant anything
you could have had everything
you could have had everything
Track Name: Crowns
"Oh my dear you're just weary of travel. Now if you hang the noose high enough and propel yourself off the chair, you'll be just fine."


boom
you'll be dead
just after it all occurred too
soon
you're going down
no one ever doubts a frown so
kill me if you must
you can leave me in the dust
with a loud big bang and a round of applause

You're not the only ones
too want a bigger gun
'cause I'm aware of these
perverted fantasies
you'd best get up and run
I know you're angle, son
'cause I'm aware of these
perverted fantasies

fi, fa, fo
and for reasons I don't know
you're like mikado
throwing needles to and fro so

kill me if you must
you can leave me in the dust
with a loud big bang and a round of applause

You're not the only ones
too want a bigger gun
'cause I'm aware of these
perverted fantasies
you'd best get up and run
I know you're angle, son
'cause I'm aware of these
perverted fantasies

rem acu
tetigisti to be true
is that really what you'll do
'cause you're gonna run me through so

kill me if you must
you can leave me in the dust
with a loud big bang and a round of applause

"And I just say these things in pure confidence, mam. So I expect your discretion"

Rampapapam Ram papapa pam
you think it's mighty funny when you're holding the gun
and the last two things to cross your mind
are the last two letters of the Hollywood sign

one day you'll learn the crown doesn't fit you

fi, fa, fo
and for reasons I don't know
you're a mikado
pile of needles set to blow

You're not the only ones
too want a bigger gun
'cause I'm aware of these
ridiculous prophecies
you'd best get up and run
I know you're angle, son
'cause I'm aware of these
perverted fantasies

"So in conclusion I'd like to imagine we've all learned something today. A lesson of great value. A lesson to share. A lesson to give."
Track Name: Far from Over
you're alone when the pressure puts you out in the snow
you're alone when the pressure makes you willing to go
it's a long, long road
it's a long, long road

but hey there this is so far from over can't you tell?
you're going a million miles an hour to your grave
to drink your pain away

you're alone when the feathers float around your head
you're alone in the battle to get out of bed
it's a long, long road
it's a long, long road

but hey there this is so far from over can't you tell?
you're going a million miles an hour to your grave
to drink the pain away

you're alone with the notion that you can't be heard
you're alone in the zone of the myna bird
it's a long, long road
it's a long, long road

but hey there this is so far from over can't you tell?
you're going a million miles an hour to your grave
to drink the pain away
Track Name: I Come Prepared
I come prepared with my eyes shut tight
I come prepared with my knuckles white
I come prepared with a map of the hill where my enemies fell
I come prepared and you've been busy crying wolf

listen to the scoundrel's hail to the king

I come prepared with a cup of water filled to the brim
I come prepared when their gaping mouthes are ready for the pill
I come prepared when their bloodshot eyes are awaiting me
I come prepared with a tender hand and honesty

don't you go away

here comes the scene the scene the figures in between
the people dancing hard in the snap trap's gleam
the shore the sore the people at the door
the people braking backs for the diamonds in the ore
it's wrong so wrong they've been living for too long
the language is forbidden but they keep on holding on
to the the scene the scene the figures in between
the people dancing hard in the snap trap's gleam

don't you go away
you don't have to go with them

I come prepared with the knowledge of the seven seas
I come prepared the letters that you haven't sent
I come prepared with a map of the hill where my enemies fell
I come prepared and you've been busy crying wolf

don't you go away
you don't have to go with them

listen to the scoundrel's hail to the king
Track Name: Your Fall
believe the lies you spread
deceive what lies ahead

you're a witch for being alone
a witch for being rude
a witch for scraping the bone
a witch for making me call you
a fool for digging a hole
a fool for pushing me in
a fool for tagging along
a fool for playing the game

all of this is your fall

deny the things you did
defy the truth again

you're a witch for being alone
a witch for being rude
a witch for scraping the bone
a witch for making me call you
a fool for digging a hole
a fool for pushing me in
a fool for tagging along
a fool for playing the game

all of this is your fall

well I hope you die alone
I hope you die alone
I hope you die alone
and soon

you're a witch for being alone
a witch for being rude
a witch for scraping the bone
a witch for making me call you
a fool for digging a hole
a fool for pushing me in
a fool for tagging along
a fool for playing the game

all of this is your fall
