Belly Of The Beast Deep inside the city The streetlights breathe in and out The sky lies in the gutter And the "Good Time Ghosts" buzz about Deep inside the city Belly of the Beast When they take you for all you worth Please try to smile at least Take me to The poor souls who Manifest this Hell 'Cause if I could You know I would Join in the fun as well Take me to The poor souls who Manifest this Hell They have a dirty job to do But you know they do it well Deep inside the city I feel your heart bleeding out We know just how the story ends But not what it's about Been dreaming like a man on fire Burning in his own bed If you could grant me just one wish I wish that it was you instead Take me to The poor souls who Manifest this Hell 'Cause if I could You know I would Join in the fun as well Take me to The poor souls who Manifest this Hell They have a dirty job to do But you know they do it well And the "Janitor Of Lunacy" Will sweep up what is left of me Into the insanity Into the unknown Like raindrops falling on the sea Deep into infinity As long as you're as lost as me We'll never be alone

Skin 02:52
Skin I tried on someone else's skin That fit better than my own So, when no one was looking I took it on back home I used and I abused it I posed and decomposed And every time I thought of you Like Lazarus, I rose I run my nails down your back Red rivers running through Ashen skin, of porcelain Oh, what else could I do? People like you use your skin To string along the fool But if I were in your skin I'd do the same thing too This skin is just a thing We wear to hide the fear That if we were to take it off There might be nothing there...

Land Of Anxiety Memory bubbles burst like blisters All throughout the doubtful night Razor sharp contradictions Cling to everything in sight I'd really love to save you But I’m tied up in these memories Infected by the thought patterns The pathogens of this disease A land of anxiety As far as the eye can see As free as a fool can be Having so much fun it’s killing me When they finally find And kill the enemy Do you think they’ll let us see? Will they show it on TV? The menace of reality Hangs heavy overhead But if elected I won’t stop Until the day we slay it dead! A land of anxiety As far as the eye can see As free as a fool can be Having so much fun it’s killing me If she finally finds a husband If he finally takes a wife If they finally make enough money And children to win at life A land of anxiety As far as the eye can see As free as a fool can be Having so much fun it’s killing me

Scatterbrain 02:55
Scatterbrain I don't remember much Other than your touch I don't recall at all The things that left me such... Sometimes I even will Forget myself and still I know I always will Know I always will Not remember much Other than the feel Of your teardrops on my cheeks So seemingly surreal I do not know your name I lost it years ago Or maybe it was yesterday I have no way to know I'm a hopeless scatterbrain I know I don't know much But I know I'll die in shame If I forget your touch A hopeless scatterbrain I know I don't know much But I know I'll die in vain If I forget your touch I lost myself in you I know you know it's true Maybe we will meet again Somewhere in the deja vu
6.
Inside Out 04:16
Inside Out Somewhere in the endless white You will learn to love your parasite If he finds you like he might You will never be alone Somewhere where the secrets slip Through the cracks of lying lips Where time crawls across your hips Please don’t forget to phone Oh, you know a lie so true Lies in the Inside Out for you The more you try to hide inside The more you bleed right through Somewhere in the Inside Out You learned what this was all about And now you are without a doubt Even more confused Somewhere where the secrets slip Through the cracks of lying lips Where time crawls across your hips There’s nothing left to lose Oh, you know a lie so true Lies in the Inside Out for you The more you try to hide inside The more you bleed right through So glad that you got to play So sorry it should end this way I guess there’s nothing left to say Other than auf Wiedersehen Somewhere in the Inside Out I learned what this was all about And now I am without a doubt Even more confused Somewhere in the Inside Out There’s nothing left to lose
7.
Get A Grip 04:43
Get A Grip I fear we're married to our fears To the stranger in the back that leers At each mistake, you make and wears A ring that shackles yours to theirs I fear we're married to our fears I fear there is no time for tears In a life divorced from a world that cares I fear we're married to our fears Keep your eyes on the road Keep your hands on the wheel you hold Don't let it slip from your fingertip Don't lose your grip Don't lose your grip I fear we're married to our fears To the stranger in the back that leers At each mistake, you make and wears A ring that shackles yours to theirs I fear we're married to our fears I fear there is no time for tears In a life divorced from a world that cares I fear we're married to our fears Keep your eyes on the road Keep your hands on the wheel you hold Don't let it slip from your fingertip Don't lose your grip Don't lose your grip...
8.
Mistakes 03:11
Mistakes The beauty of impurity In awe of the flaw A break in the assembly line That could create something sublime A crack across the facade That lets the light leak in A mistake that might just take Us somewhere where we've never been Our fatal flaw Was we saw, you see Distortions, where there was beauty Leviathanic patterns Far too big for us to see What we mistake for mistakes Just threads in the complexity Mutations in the DNA That made the world the way we see Mistakes that our parents made That gave me you, that gave you me Our fatal flaw Was we saw, you see Distortions, where there was beauty
9.
Behind The Night Behind the night Hidden, in a strand of DNA Your second sight could find me Still a million miles away I could fall into a sleep So deep and so steep I could fall for weeks And still not Find the truth behind the night Hidden just out of sight Behind the night Hidden, in a strand of DNA Your second sight could find me Still a million miles away I could fall into a sleep So deep and so steep I could fall for weeks And still not Find the truth behind the night Hidden just out of sight If I said I loved you I hope I did not lie I hope I get to live Before I get to die Behind the night Hidden, in a strand of DNA Your second sight could find me Still a million miles away I could fall into a sleep So deep and so steep I could fall for weeks And still not Find the truth behind the night Hidden just out of sight
10.
You Must Be Mad You must be mad to walk into The jaws that frame this point of view You must be mad because it's true No one loves me like you do If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let me know? If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let all this go? And down there in the shifting sand These rusty bones lay where they land You must be mad to be so glad To lend this fool a helping hand If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let me know? If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let all this go? You must be mad to step into The jaws that frame this point of view But I guess I must be to 'Cause when I fall, I fall for you If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let me know? If I ever fall apart Would you have the heart To let all this go? If I ever fall apart, I fall for you
