Track Name: Control
One the edge of this bridge
Some kinda precipice
Still you ask, "Are we going anywhere"
You fight, I fight back
You bite, I bite back
Still you ask, "Are we going anywhere"

Is everything under control
You slip back and you're slithering
Is everything under control
This could be the one but you never will know
Is everything under control

Do you know where we're going
Do you know who's still breathing

On the edge of your words
See through you like water
Still you ask, "Are we sinking fast enough"
You fight, I fight back
You bite, I bite back
Still you ask, "Are we sinking"

Someone pulled the rug out
Someone pulled the plug
If this thing's going under, it can't sink fast enough
Track Name: Avalanche
Keeping rhythm, seeking words
Keeping myself bound to earth
An avalanche is coming down
Who are you this verse I heard
A fire will be reaching out
Stretch your splintered spine with words

Keeping time with the clocks that you sold
Lashing out with a punch that you hold
Everyone wants their whole story told
Live on and on and on and on and on and on
Mother told you to watch all your words
Wash your mouth out with phrases you've learned
Everyone wants their whole story heard
Live on and on and on and on and on and on

My mother, she speaks so softly
While I sleep, she whispers
My mother, she listens closely
All my skin, it blisters

Unravel your twisted limbs
Stretch your splintered spine for him
An avalanche is coming down
Who are you this verse I heard
A fire will be reaching out
Keeping rhythm, seeking words
Track Name: Pharmaceuticals
Will you come down and will you open me up
Will you fix me up, I'm all wrong
They say you formed me from the clay and the mud
But I'm all fucked up, I'm all wrong

All these pills eating me alive
Make me well or waste all my time
Open wide, swallow, desperately searching
Eyes closed, I follow, desperately give in

With a handful of pharmaceuticals
They're gonna fix me up, I'm all wrong
Plucked from a rib cage with all my flawed DNA
They'll try to shut me up, they're all wrong

Peel open my head and make me better
Shame to stay in bed through all this lovely weather
And i'm not waking up
Be my foundation when I am toppling over
Given up the drinks but i am never sober
And I'm not waking up
Track Name: Long Way Down
Can't go back and we never could
Can't relax like I said I would
I've got nothing to do, I've got nowhere to be
Where do we go now

And could you look more bored
It's first time
Will you admit you're fed up
For the worst lie
I'll watch us writhe some more
In the dim light
Before I let it die

And I know the facts and I wish you would
It's a long way down and you shouldn't look
You've got thing to say, places you'd rather be
Where do we go now

I've seen doom and he's coming soon
Arms out stretched, he will reach for you
Too proud to ever say, to proud to ever be
Where do we go now
Track Name: See You In Hell
I retrograde, I wax and wane under your spell
And I get so sad knowing I won't see you in hell
We are not running fast enough

That's enough, alright already
Peel my filthy hands from you
Capsize all your dreams and let you float away another day

A soul to save, is all well that ever ends well
Through crashing waves and secrets that time cannot tell
We are not running fast enough

Calm down
We're dead in the water
Track Name: Ghost In Your House
Will you speak my name or spit it out
Tonight I will sit with your ghost
And burn your bones
Will you see my face or shut it out
Tonight I will crawl to your grave
Are you afraid

Am I the ghost in your house or just an old story you read
Are you still shaking it out - all of those ideas in your head

Will you give my grace or cut it out
Tonight I will dine with your ghost
Are we alone
Will you walk this way without a sound
Tonight I'll sleep next to your bones
And haunt your home

Never alone, I creep through your home
Ask me to leave or make me
