Track Name: Nothing But the Past
I find freedom in the morning
The sun bleeds in and then I see the truth
Ice blue gone from the window
Nothing left of you…

A touch lingers on I know it
Memories send shivers down my spine
Another lover to replace you
But your touch in my mind

I find freedom overrated
Emancipation well I never asked
A captured heat with a grave soup
You’re nothing but the past

You’re nothing but the past
You’re nothing but the past

Be everything I need
And I’ll be everything you fear
Be everything I need
Born to torture every piece of soul that you bleed
Be everything I need
And I’ll be everything you fear
Be everything I need
Born to torture every piece of soul that you bleed

I find freedom overrated
Emancipation well I never asked
A captured heat with a grave soup
You’re nothing but the past

Be everything I need
And I’ll be everything you fear
Be everything I need
Born to torture every piece of soul that you bleed
Be everything I need
And I’ll be everything you fear
Be everything I need
Born to torture every piece of soul that you bleed
Track Name: Closer
You pull me closer and i pull away
You pull me closer and i can't breathe
The fear of losing myself in the depth
Of this delusion, in the depth of fear

Closer, closer, closer, closer

I could pull you closer maybe for a while
I could pull you closer if you want tonight
But i refuse to lose myself in the night
So i'll be gone before you see the light

Closer, closer, closer, closer
Track Name: Do Not Go
Do not go into that sweet night
Howl and rage against the fury that you find
In this unholy war against the shadow
That is found at the bottom of what you hollow

Do not go gentle into that good night
Sent it flying again
Do not go gentle into that good night
Howl and rage against the fury in your mind
Track Name: Ventriloquist
Aren't you tired of diluting your own thought
Just for their comfort to keep their stomach from knots
Well I've decided to tie them up, I've had enough
Shy is painful I remember well how its rough
But I'm opening up my mouth but nothing coming out
So no one really knows what the ventriloquist is about

Another night, another bravado
I'll hollow out this bottle, just for the show

Behind the painted face, there's a master here
But he forgets how to speak moving his mouth freely
There's a melancholy sitting with this ventriloquist
Behind all of the madness who could he really be
