Track Name: Never Missed A Note
Through the lies of a fortune teller
In the tomb of a slave through rusted time
Through the blades of a stealth propeller
In the face of a stunted crime
Through the sin, through the cold repentance
Not a word, not a letter he wrote
Came around to the drone of silence
Still alive yet he never missed a note

I was grown in an orchid's shadow
I was primed in a field of make-believe
Semi-stoned in a sea of 'I know'
With a serpent's trail on my sleeve
Sputtered down to an aimless motive
Reaching out through the blindness of her stare
Could it be that she never saw me?
Or was it that I just wasn't there?

Hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
When you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
I'm unheard
I'm unknown

A silhouette in a dim syncytium
Shutting out all the time-infected rays
On his knees as he hit the ceiling
Camouflaged in his numbered days
Unaware of his plain existence
Hanging down from the end of the rope he'd climbed
Buried deep in a voice unshaken
Echoing till the end of time

And hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
When you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
Unlettered
I'm unknown

Hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
As you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
I'm unheard
I'm unknown

Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a note
Track Name: Ptolemy
Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

Would that you ever let sin befall you
Baring your heavenless soul to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

The day the sun doth take a bow
By the beads of sweat set on your brow
I'd hoist the sail
I'd set you free
Just to hear you say 'I need you now'

Free yourself
You hold the key
Don't leave this story untold to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

Would that you ever let sin befall you
Baring your heavenless soul to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

Don't I see all that you see?
Don't the both of us kneel as we pray?
Nothing lies twain you and me
Still it's though you're two lifetimes away
Strange how you won't let me go
Yet how I try I just can't make you stay

Feed me your
Uncertainty
Don't leave your demons unsworn to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me

Would that you ever let sin befall you
Baring your heavenless soul to me

Ptolemy
Ptolemy

Would that you ever come home to me
Track Name: You Make It Hard (Explicit)
Fuck you you win I can’t resist go on and take a bow
It’s all that cocaine in your cunt I just can’t disavow
You make it hard there’s just no second emotion
So fucking hard I’m kneeling down on the floor – I can’t

Not take you home, not tie you down, not leave you unfulfilled
You smile and tell me that you won’t just like I know you will
You make it hard enough for me not to leave you – unbound
So fucking hard it’s strange how easy it comes – I'm

Free
I pray in silence for all the things
I never wanted to be
I’m standing trial for all those crimes
You framed me with
You'll see
I’m pushing deeper to feel you
Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be
It's never easy
It's hot to touch
It's not enough

Aa aa aa

Don't look at me girl now you're making me bleed
This mound of curls is just the drug that we need
Don't make it harder don't make me lose control, I can
Still taste the violence in those secrets you stole
Leave me possessive, obsessive
It's getting warmer
It's colder
It's hotter
I just can't tell and I confess it I can't be
Just take me throw me down and rip me apart
Kiss me or kill me it's just so fucking hard - I'm

Free
I pray in silence for all the things
I never wanted to be
I’m standing trial for all those crimes
You framed me with
You'll see
I’m pushing deeper to feel you
Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be
It's never easy
It's hot to touch
It's not enough

Aa aa aa

I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable
I like it when you're just a little - I'm

Free
I pray in silence for all the things
I never wanted to be
I’m standing trial for all those crimes
You framed me with
You'll see
I’m pushing deeper to feel you
Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be
It's never easy
It's hot to touch
It's not enough

Aa aa aa
Track Name: Stumble And Fall
I never thought I was wrong
I always knew what to say
I'm falling back to the surface
Within myself
I think I can stay

I heard you singing my song
I felt you feeling the same
It's what I'm catching my breath for
Through life or through death
Or going down in flames

And I
Can finally stumble and fall
And I
Can get away from it all
Away from it all

You've been away for so long
You should know
No one ever took your place
And still
This bottle's waiting unopened
The table's still set
This time I know what to say

Sometimes the days get so long
Sometimes these nights go astray
But I always know where to find you
As I lay there beside you
I know that I'll be okay

And I
Can finally stumble and fall
And I
Can get away from it all
Away from it all

(What you do to me
What you do to me
What you do to me now
What you do to me now)

And I
Can finally stumble and fall
And I
Can get away from it all
Away from it all
Track Name: Sun In The Storm
In the throes of your stillness I hide
Lost in words I can never un-write
I could be the sun
In the storm
That never shines

To the frays of my solace I cling
Bound in strands of your reverence I sing
Rattling the notes
Through the holes
In your spine

I've been holding the silence inside for too long
Got no more questions to answer, no need to belong

You never believe you'll die alone
'Til you block out the sun
In the storm

Yeah

To the wake of my senses I rise
Catch the strains of a thousand goodbyes
Hanging from a thread
Through a crack
In the sky

Through the years, I could never forget
How the chains of our illnesses met
Burying the bones
Sinking like the stones
In your eyes

I've been stealing a smile, all the while, in disguise
Holding out for the kill, frozen still, as you cry

You never believe you'll die alone
The road is too long to still come home
You blocked out the sun
In the storm

Yeah

You never believe you'll die alone
The road is too long to still come home
You blocked out the sun
In the storm

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
