Hid you on the mountain on a warm sunny day How was I to know that your body would fade That’s love Pulled you from the trunk under fairytale stars Wonder if the cops saw me get this far Is that love I always know where to find you Pick the perfect place to hide you Hear the train as I’m deep inside you Ahhh, ahhh And it sounds just like you I did not expect a civilian To see that I’m one in a million That’s love It started with dogs and it ended with you Off the interstate with the prettiest view That’s love I’ll keep coming ‘til you turn to dust They don’t understand that it’s more than lust Is that love I always know where to find you Pick the perfect place to hide you Hear the train as I’m deep inside you Life was sweet, it was just trick or treat With the boys and the girls Just a hole where there once was a soul And a song But it’s gone I always know where to find you Pick the perfect place to hide you Hear the train as I’m deep inside you And it sounds just like you

It was 4 am She was fast asleep When a familiar hand Touched her cheek Terrifying voices Threatening to steal her soul Heart in her throat Like a thousand times before Then the night terrors came Demons sat upon her chest She could not scream She gasped for air Paralyzed in a dream Half awake, half asleep She could not move She could not speak Night terrors Night terrors Night terrors Night terrors Salt around her bed Said their name three times But the visions in her head They make her lose her mind Footsteps at the door Through the keyhole they creep in Entangling her hair They taunt her in her sleep Then the night terrors came Demons sat upon her chest She could not scream She gasped for air Paralyzed in a dream Half awake, half asleep She could not move She could not speak The night terrors came A weight upon her chest Caught between This world and the next Figures in the shadows Dancing around her bed Suffocate and Steal her breath Night terrors Night terrors Night terrors Night terrors Night terrors

It’s the top of the month and I’m late on my rent More checks are coming but they’re already spent It’s nearly 6:30 on the 17th floor I’m about to give up when there’s a knock Careful what you wish for Be it money or a lover May the mirror let your eyes see the lies in disguise And nothing more Careful what you wish for She walked into my office all leggy and lean Her husband ran off and he hasn’t been seen Heels on fire and tears on her face She had the money, I took the case Careful what you wish for Be it money or a lover May the mirror let your eyes see the lies in disguise And nothing more Careful what you wish for We hopped into her car, and went for a ride Followed a lead to the lower east side I put it park, as she opened her coat And buried the blade in my throat Careful what you wish for Be it money or a lover May the mirror let your eyes see the lies in disguise And nothing more Careful what you wish for Be it money or a lover May the mirror let your eyes see the lies in disguise And nothing more Careful what you wish for Careful what you wish for Careful what you wish for

Pressure Pressing Harder Down on my chest again Something here beside me Counting Every blessing Weighing out every sin Something here has found me I’m petrified Trapped in my skin Under the weight of the waking nightmare I’m terrified The room is caving in Under the weight of the waking nightmare My body Becomes A prison I’m the sole prisoner Something has confined me Voices Calling From outside Familiar yet sinister Something to remind me I’m petrified Trapped in my skin Under the weight of the waking nightmare I’m terrified The room is caving in Under the weight of the waking nightmare Pressure Pressing Harder Down on my chest again

Terrified just the same, caught up in emotion, guess it’s just a price to pay I’m wishin’ there was a way (a way) to leave it all behind and find another reason to stay Before the sun goes down, before the sun goes down I’m still scared of the dark, I don’t know what I’m running for I’m still scared of the dark, I don’t know what I’m hiding from Locked in a room with no walls, somehow in my mind I still can’t seem to tear them down Trip over nothing I fall, the roads that lead to nowhere are always the ones hardest to walk Before the sun goes down, before the sun goes down I’m still scared of the dark, I don’t know what I’m running for I’m still scared of the dark, I don’t know what I’m hiding from I’m still scared of the dark baby, I don’t know what I’m running for I’m still scared of the dark darling, I don’t know what I’m hiding from Before the sun goes down, before the sun goes down I’m still scared of the dark, I don’t know what I’m running for I’m still scared of the dark darling, I don’t know what I’m hiding from I’m still scared of the dark I’m still scared of the dark I’m still scared of the dark I’m still scared of the dark I’m still scared of the dark I’m still scared of the

Don’t go into the woods boy Don’t go into the woods boy Don’t go into the woods boy Unless you are prepared They say that there is a killer They say that there is a killer They say that there is a killer Somewhere deep in the woods Leave a trail of breadcrumbs Leave a trail of breadcrumbs Leave a trail of breadcrumbs If you go into the woods Bring your cloak and dagger Bring your cloak and dagger Bring your cloak and dagger If you go into the woods You’re never late for supper You’re never late for supper They call but you won’t answer You’re still out in the woods The neighbors found your body The neighbors found your body All hacked up and bloody Somewhere deep in the woods I followed your crumbs to the oak tree Crept up behind you slowly Thrust a dagger into your body And left you there in the woods Don’t go into the woods boy Don’t go into the woods boy Don’t go into the woods boy Unless you are prepared

You turned the lights off And you cut the phone lines You never left me alone When you got influenza Thought I turned against ya And poisoned your blueberry scone The shadows in all your corners Are flourishing in our home The roots grow down through the foundation stone And the rafters they groan You say I can’t deny you ‘Cause I stood beside you And promised to have and to hold But the kindness between us diminishes You should get used to being alone The shadows in all your corners Are flourishing in our home The roots grow down through the foundation stone And the rafters they groan With this sunny weather I’m stretching my feathers And cracking my tiny bones The wind will direct you But I can’t protect you You gotta do this on your own The shadows in all your corners Are flourishing in your home The roots grow down through the foundation stone And the rafters they groan

Trust these lonely streets Where heroes utter needs Off the wagon means off to sleep Rain beaten cardboard sheet Bruised myself again Like an old friend kickin’ stones Fever dreams and rattlesnakes Leave my nights alone Careful what you wish for Careful what you say Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away What kind of thrills you on? So many ways to burn out Had any sense of bein’ born I’d have known by now Careful what you wish for Careful what you say Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away Careful what you wish for Careful what you say Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away What kind of thrills you on? So many ways to burn out So many ways to burn out Careful what you wish for Careful what you say Advertisin’ freedom As it flies away

Anybody out there? Anybody near? Can anybody read me? Am I coming in clear? Antennae is receiving Reaching in the void I want to hear you breathing I want to feel your noise I told you, I told you, I told you…on the wire I told you, I told you, I told you…every day I am here I’m still here You never ever listen I’m talking to myself I never get an answer ‘Cause I’m talking to myself (Vocal bridge x2) Anybody out there?

Tiny Spiders 03:18
Time goes by so slow It’s hard to run with broken bones The distance is horrible Thoughts of you bring me home The fire inside my chest Burns even at my best I’m no stranger to the sting You make me feel everything I can see your wedding dress Tiny spiders spinning webs Something borrowed, something new I love you and soon you’ll love me too Tiny spiders spinning webs You’re the one You did this

Hell Ride 02:58
I take the flight I take the night I make the moon my crown I was born into the grave, a lifeline one way down Plowing through the sky, it’s my destiny to die HELL RIDE From clouds of black I’m never coming back My steel angel flames A lone dagger claims, hundreds, in its name I was born to fly, sworn to die HELL RIDE It’s 5 seconds down to forever HELL RIDE My cannons are the judge My bullets are the jury My trigger brings, a sentencing of fury I’m the hammer and the nail The empty holy grail Judgment bereft The fearless will prevail I was born to fly, sworn to die HELL RIDE It’s 5 seconds down to forever HELL RIDE It’s 5 seconds down HELL RIDE

Father Darkness, Mother Night Star crossed lovers never fight Chaos-born at their first breath Sleep and his half brother Death Sleep is like a little death Bringer of unconsciousness Death is the perfect sleep Fields of endless dreams to reap Gates of ivory and buckhorn Beyond the land of the rising sun By the river of Forgetfulness Sleep and his half brother Death Floating over your feather bed Wings sprouting from his head The darkest black before the dawn Brings the day to be reborn Peaceful Death so sublime Rite of passage throughout time Sweetest child of youngest grace Inverted touch upon her face Twins from birth half of a whole Ushers of your immortal soul Both are there at your last breath Sleep and his half brother Death Sleep and his half brother Death Sleep and his half brother Death

Open eyes to a fever dream Destination is everything Mirrored mind in the window frame Forsaken train, a forgotten name Freight sways on the bumpy track Blisters bursting up on our backs How can such a big loving thing Love all this suffering Freight train to… Train straight to… Freight train to… Train straight to… Open eyes to reality A shattered sense of finality All knowing mind, and a perfect king Made all these broken things Freight train to… Train straight to… Freight train to… Train straight to…

Why'd You Go 02:05
All the dogs start barkin' when the sun goes down Seems like nobody’s got a pulse in this whole damn town I wander the streets at night just to find another soul Wishin’ you were still around to keep me from the cold Why’d you have to go? You left me with these folks Who don’t know What it is To be warm Anymore. Sometimes I miss the birds but I’m used to silence now The constant fog and grey skies are comforting somehow You know, I still look for you In every crowd Tell me, why’d you have to go? You left me with these ghosts Who don’t know What it is To be warm Anymore, To be warm Anymore.

The days Are so long now in spite Of the night will you Forgive me When I don’t Make it home I’m sorry my dear for All your salty tears I just had to turn out The light Been tryin’ to find My way to shorter days But I couldn’t tell you Where to start I’d like to have exchanged All the hideous for grace In every chamber of my heart But every empty room Just as lonely as a life On the moon (You should have everything You should have everything) If I Had a way to Describe to you the ache All the damage The demon done to me I think that I would spare you Now I’m the one who left you That’s never Who I wanted To be Been tryin’ to find My way to shorter days But I couldn’t tell you Where to start I’d like to have exchanged All the hideous for grace In every chamber of my heart But every empty room Just as lonely as a life On the moon (You should have everything You should have everything)

Van Gogh 04:05
I know you can see I’ve got an eye for you I’m going to show you there’s nothing I won’t do I’d give you a hand, whatever the deed When you’re in need of something to hold you I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could With no one to talk to I’d lend you an ear I’ll always be near so you’ll know I still care I’ve told you time and time and time and time again You’ll need thicker skin and I’m willing to share I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could Just let me know if a love like Van Gogh Is enough for these arms to hold you I’d give you my heart but that’s the one part That the blade of my love can’t get to I’d give you my legs if it would prove I’d never move Away from you, I’d never leave. I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could Just let me know if a love like Van Gogh Is enough for these arms to hold you I’d give you my heart but that’s the one part That the blade of my love can’t get to I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could I’d give you my heart if I could

Never really thought I would get to heaven But I didn’t really mind That’s why I’m here in purgatory, my penance for to find There’s always wind blowing through the trees Always a full moon Always a couple open seats at the Purgatory Saloon A ballroom full of wayward souls Lost their way somehow They put their faith in Jesus But only the spirits gonna save ‘em now And into every shot glass Fall a weary pilgrim’s tears ‘Cause we know we’re going to be drinkin’ here For the next thousand years One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor Look around and you will see the captive clientele A room of ghosts, raising toasts and quite a bit of hell We got Salem witches drinking pitchers, and Druids shootin’ booze But don’t shoot quarters with the Inquisition, ‘cause they don’t like to lose One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor Red Beard, Black Beard, Blue Beard all walk into a bar The bartender says, “Is this a joke?” And the pirates all say, “YAAARRRR!!” (Scurvy Chorus) One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’ll fall right through the floor (Hoppin’ Chorus) One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor One thousand years (one thousand years) One thousand more (one thousand more) If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor If you don’t pass on through those pearly gates You’re gonna fall right through the floor

52 Hertz 03:30
Are you listening Hear my whispering Are you receiving my frequency Deep sea mystery Whaling sonic groans Sub-harmonic tones Roaming from pole to pole My unanswered call 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) I’ve been wandering 700 leagues Deeper than a submarine Tales from the Bering Sea 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) 52 hertz; lonely, I lurk (oohs, oohs) Waves flow toward the dawn I’m still floating on…

A hundred times I've asked myself, If there's a God above, Call it fate, or maybe luck, With you, I call it love, Last night I wept so bitterly, My teardrops grew a flower, And from my grief, you gave relief, Even in my darkest hour. When I’m down and had enough, And good friends can't be found, One bad break, is all it takes, And my world's crashing down, When the wind kicks up and the waves are rough, I feel the fearsome power, You calm my seas and comfort me, Even in my darkest hour. People say I must be tough, Living like I do, But I get weak and turn my cheek, When it comes to you, Even in a penitentiary, With watchmen in the tower, You bring the key that sets me free, Even in my darkest hour, You bring the key that sets me free, Even in my darkest hour.
