Track Name: A Haunting
Buried inside my mind
Things I cannot deny to you.
Things that I thought were dead
They keep invading my head it's true, so true.

Please come and lay beside me
There's something I can not.

This things has followed me here
Thought I got rid of this fear I'm wrong.
It seems this haunting is real
But only I can feel it's strong, so strong
And it won't let me go.

Please come and lay beside me
There's something I can not see.
Panic is behind the door
Things I can't hide anymore.

Take a breath and count back from ten
Repeat process do it again.
Speak these lies to reflective glass
Repeat them until the feeling's passed
Repeat them until the feeling's passed
Repeat them until the feeling's passed
Repeat them.

Please come and lay beside me
There's something I can not see.
Panic is behind the door
Things I can't hide anymore.
Track Name: Need
I need to be your everything
I need to be desired.
I need to be the big secret
That's behind every smile.
I need to be your sunny day
I need to be your night.
I need to be your times of joy
I need to be your spite.

I need to be the tiny lie
That causes you to cheat.
I need to be the ecstasy
You feel between your sheets.
I need to be your Jesus Christ
And be your holy name.
I need to be your biggest pride
I need to be your shame.

Will you protect me from the rain?
Cause I can't bear to take more pain.

I need to be the parasite
That invests all your thoughts.
I need to be the promised land
That you have always sought.
I need to be the desperate attempt
That no one knows.
I need to be the only boy
That you ever hold close.

Will you protect me from the rain?
Cause I can't bear to take more pain.

Will you protect me from the rain?
Cause I can't bear to take more pain.
Track Name: King Of Pain
There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
There's a flag-pole rag and the wind won't stop

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain
There's a little black spot on the sun today
That's my soul up there
It's the same old thing as yesterday
That's my soul up there
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
That's my soul up there
There's a flag-pole rag and the wind won't stop
That's my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall
That's my soul up there
There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
That's my soul up there
There's a blue whale beached by a springtime's ebb
That's my soul up there
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web
That's my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

King of pain

There's a red fox torn by a huntsman's pack
That's my soul up there
There's a black-winged gull with a broken back
That's my soul up there
There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
I guess I always thought you could end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

King of pain
King of pain
King of pain
I'll always be king of pain
Track Name: Eleanor
She puts on her black boots
Her red lipstick too.
She takes the R to Greenwood
For a date that's overdue.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.

She pours herself some red wine
She does this every day.
Then she makes her way down to the church
She's go to sit and pray.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.
Preferred conversations
No judgement from friends
If only the living
Were deceased instead.

McKenzie reads his sermon
As she cries from the pew.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.
Preferred conversations
No judgement from friends
If only the living
Were deceased instead.
Track Name: Perverted Views
I found myself inside a bottle
I can't remember when I remembered me.
Solutions for an overwhelming problem
The part of my head that never goes to sleep.

It's the little crack that I feel here in my brain.
The one that I'm hoping will /soon go away.
For everyone's sins I'm left here to pay.
It's funny how life has turned out this way.

Oh damn this noise inside my head
Repeating everything unsaid.
How did it all come down to this?
The darkness always will exist.

I'm living in distortion
Nobody listen to anything I say.
Breaking down my fuzzy life proportions
Muting the lines I never could convey.

To your ears that are deaf to the words that I speak
Stars that I share I guess are too weak
Killing my time knowing we're meant to be
Indifference is where we agree

I can't believe that you can't see
That you mean everything to me.
Astonished with perverted views
To blind for what's in front of you.

Oh damn this noise inside my head
Repeating everything unsaid.
How did it all come down to this?
The darkness always will exist.
