Track Name: Brutus
their plan
it was foolproof
he never knew
how they talked
how they walked
the trail cold

wise men go to war
wise men shed the blood
how they sting
how they bring
you the cold

and all along
it's the one you loved the most

can you see any white in the rain of blood
feel the beat of a heart that was turned down
turned down
turned down
turned down
and all along it's the one you loved the most
and all along it's the one you loved the most

it's true
you should go now
you should leave
and they might
spare your life
your life

it's a walk into
the darkest place in your heart
when you're a star
you die young

can you see any white in the rain of blood
feel the beat of a heart that was turned down
turned down
turned down
turned down
and all along it's the one you loved the most
and all along it's the one you loved the most

my words aren't my actions
my actions not my words
my truth is not your truth
my peace is not your truce

can you see any white in the rain of blood
feel the beat of a heart that was turned down
turned down
turned down
turned down
and all along it's the one you loved the most
and all along it's the one you loved the most
Track Name: Meaningless
the love of a man is different
the love of a mother is something else
the love that I have is nothing less
nothing less

whenever you hold on too tight
whenever you let go too easy
whatever the reason, it's meaningless
meaningless

I run and I run to find peace of mind
whatever I do with the pieces I find
I throw them into the water and let them decay
I watch them fade away

they told me to stay away from him
that I could not possess him
they told me that I would burn my skin
if I would let him in

I never stood up for myself
I never told them this is what I wanted
I never was sure how it all would end
but it would end

whenever I held on too tight
whenever I let go too easy
I had my reasons, but they're all meaningless
they're all meaningless

they told me to stay away from him
that I could not possess him
they told me that I would burn my skin
if I would let him in

they warned me to stay away from him
that I could not possess him
they warned me that "you will burn your skin"
but I won't let them win

and they devour
every minute of every day
they crawl they crawl with their claws on my back
I can't get away

and I have walked this road
I've given it all away
I've called I've called your name in the dark
but they took you away

they told me to stay away from him
that I could not possess him
they told me that I would burn my skin
if I would let him in

'cause they know I'd give him everything
and he would give me nothing
but to have him, that is everything
when I cannot possess him
Track Name: Reaper
save me now
you never save me
when I want

you just breathe on my skin
and I'm all in
like I'm always

in your eyes there's a cry for god
for god, it is the way you are
you are

my shadow and you are
a dancer in the dark
the rhythm in my core
the reaper on my door

hear me now
when I call you
I call you in the dark

you just leave yourself in this state of mind
your hollow eyes
can build and burn the bridges
burn the bridges
burn them like you are
you are

my shadow and you are
a dancer in the dark
the rhythm in my core
the reaper on my door
Track Name: Bird on Fire
weighing me down
a stone in my chest
it's a leap of doubt, a lost fortress

'cause it burns into my soul
it eats into my bones
it makes me yearn for my days in the darkness

I've come too close to the sun
and now there's nothing I can do
I hold my heart outside in my hand
'cause I have nothing to lose

I'm crippled by my mind
in this mess
empty hearts are
drawn to emptiness

and the light could eat your eyes up
feeding on your insides
taking chances in this disbelief

I've come too close to the sun
and now there's nothing I can do
I hold my heart outside in my hand
'cause I have nothing to lose

there's a bird on fire
there's a bird on fire
there's a bird on fire
in my heart

I've come too close to the sun
and now there's nothing I can do
I hold my heart outside in my hand
'cause I have nothing to lose
