Track Name: Old Wounds
These scars from old wounds
I wear them proud, I wear them true
Track Name: Divides
I'll drink til I'm dead
Before I drink til I'm stupid
My skin I will shed
Like a snake, I will lose it

Don't lie down before the eyes of God
You won't be judged, like me, upon the cross
The martyrs, liars and the righteous clan (With blood on their hands)

Take from me, and give nothing back
A tower built, but not built to last
Take from me, now I'm losing track
A tower built, on broken glass

Divides, between me and you
I wear my heart on my sleeve
While yours is hidden from view
Divides, between me and you

Take me instead
She's really not worth it
Careful where you tread
I don't boast, no, I prove it

Nightmares come to life and bleed to black
The darkest corners of my Cadillac
I see your face beneath a red strip light (I'll make it alright)

Take from me, and give nothing back
A tower built, but not built to last
Take from me, now I'm losing track
A tower built, on broken glass

I should accept, the divides we already made
Before the foundations were laid
Before the boundaries were set
With mistakes washed away by the rain

Divides between me and you
My heart on my sleeve, yours hidden from view
Divides between me and you
Track Name: Medicine
I made the most of what I had
Even what's forced into my hands
And when I land that parting blow
I won't forgive you, no I won't
Contaminated from within
Forgive me mother, for I have sinned
And now I can't take it all back
A twisted mind, a heart attack

Can't say I didn't try
I'd give it all, I'd even give an eye
I'd cast you out, into the night
With this fist of steel and this fist of might
Can’t stop, I’m going mad
I gave to you all that I ever had
And now I can't take it all back
A twisted mind, a heart attack

Take my hand, help me make it out
Take my hand, help me make it out
A pill, a syringe, there's no doubt
A pill, a syringe, there's no doubt

You are the answers, to all my questions
You are my medicine, my medicine
You are the vaccine, for my sickness
You are my medicine, my medicine

I can see through the smoke
Beneath the black and through your cloak
I am the one who's seen the light
You are the truth and you are the guide
Hold me back or I'll cross the line
You help me see when I'm going blind
Cleanse my soul of all my sins
And help me let go of everything





Can't say I didn't try
Beyond the grave, beneath the broken sky
The dead leaves and the ashes grey
There’s warrior I cannot slay
An old wound, an infection
The mirror’s edge, a reflection
Cleanse my soul of all my sins
And help me let go of everything

Take my hand, help me make it out
Take my hand, help me make it out
A pill, a syringe, there's no doubt
A pill, a syringe, there's no doubt

You are the answers, to all my questions
You are my medicine, my medicine
You are the vaccine, for my sickness
You are my medicine, my medicine
(x2)

Reduce me, to a memory
Now you're gone, I know you're all I need
(x2)

It rages on, from deep within
But she holds on to the way we were
(x2)

It rages on, from deep within
She holds on to the way we were
(x2)

It rages on, from deep within
I hold on to the way we were
(x2)
Track Name: Telekinesis
Step up, you're better than this
Cross off a name from the top of your list
Step up; you're not better than me
I may have lost my mind, but not my dignity

Got voices in my head, you'll never understand
They tell me they rely on me, they tell me what they've planned
A power given to me, or did I take it from your hand?
These binds won't hold me, no they won't, I'm making my last stand

You've got it wrong, did all along
From the bottom of my lungs to where you aim your gun
You've got it right, convinced by the edge of a knife
I'm not satisfied; hold onto your head like the grip of a vice
I can play dead, paint the walls with red
I can burrow like a worm into the back of your head
Stay there on the ground, be still don't make a sound
The slightest noise from you I won't allow

I can move mountains with my mind
I can do anything, I won't break my stride
I can split the ground in half, don't ask me why
I can part oceans with a flicker of the eye

Your skull grows bright and hot, singes hair and skin
Cracks like a light bulb, when I signal it caves in
I pull out your spine like a root from the dry earth
And I'll break your neck like paper chains, but I'll disembowel you first

You've got it wrong, did all along
From the bottom of my lungs to where you aim your gun
You've got it right, convinced by the edge of a knife
I'm not satisfied; hold onto your head like the grip of a vice
I can play dead, paint the walls with red
I can burrow like a worm into the back of your head
Stay there on the ground, be still don't make a sound
The slightest noise from you I won't allow

I can move mountains with my mind
I can do anything, I won't break my stride
I can split the ground in half, don't ask me why
I can part oceans with a flicker of the eye

I am a constellation, a cluster of distant stars
I am that feeling you get when danger isn't far
Smoke on the horizon, yeah, it threatens with a curse
Smother me, baby please, you better call the nurse

I am a constellation of distant stars (x2)
Track Name: Buried At Sea
Oh, as I decompose, I wonder what waits for me beyond
I guess I’ll never know
Oh, as my body falls apart, I wonder if I’ll see your face again
I guess I’ll never know, I’ll never know

Pitch black, carve out my eyes
When I get out of here I’ll eat you alive
Once lost, you’ll never find
A floating coffin holds me trapped inside
I gave it all, it was never enough
Even when this ship started to flood
You should have jumped when I told you to
Left me here behind, to rot, to face the truth

And what I never knew, is that I suffocated long ago
I won’t see the sun again, I’ll never leave this tomb

Never leave this tomb
The rope around my wrists itches and burns
I’m different to you, I guess I’ll never learn
Ghouls of the mind come thick and fast
I regret that day, I regret my past

What did I do so wrong?
A priest didn’t even send me on my way
A prayer or two, that would have done
It would have been enough for me to say
I’ve had my time and done my best
My heart goes on inside my chest
But now I can’t leave this world
Not without gold, diamonds and pearls

And what I never knew, is that I suffocated long ago
I won’t see the sun again, I’ll never leave this tomb
I wish I would have known, before you ever betrayed me
Did you place a rose upon this box?
Did you bury me at sea?

Bury me at sea (x4)
