    1. #1 Black Tongue

    | back to the top

    I BURNED OUT MY EYES
    I CUT OFF MY TONGUE
    I SEALED THEM WITH ALL OF THE SILVER
    AND NOW I HAVE NONE



    YOU KILLED THE LIFE
    YOU TOOK THE DIAMOND
    YOU KILLED THE VINE
    DEATH OF THE



    YOU OWN THE DARKNESS
    AND TAKEN MY SIGHT
    YOU BURIED THE STARS UNDERGROUND
    YOU’VE STOLEN THE NIGHT



    YOU CAN RUN TO THE SEA
    YOU CAN RUN TO THE FOREST
    YOU CAN HIDE
    BUT YOU’LL NEVER ESCAPE



    YOU’VE RUN OUT OF LIES
    YOU’VE RUN OUT OF TIME



    YOU KILLED THE LIFE
    YOU TOOK THE DIAMOND
    YOU KILLED THE VINE
    DEATH OF THE SUN


    2. #2 Curl of the Burl

    | back to the top

    I KILLED A MAN CAUSE HE KILLED MY GOAT
    I PUT MY HANDS AROUND HIS THROAT
    HE TRIED TO REASON WITH THE SKY AND THE CLOUDS
    BUT IT DIDN’T MATTER CAUSE THEY CAN’T HEAR A SOUND



    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    THAT’S JUST THE WAY OF THE WORLD
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL



    SPLINTERS IN MY SKIN
    JUST LIKE NEEDLES AND PINS
    I CUT THROUGH PINE
    LOVE THE FEELING IT GIVES
    BEEN OUT HERE FOR DAYS
    RUNNING THROUGH THESE TREES
    I’M USING MY HANDS
    CUTTING THROUGH THE DISEASE



    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    THAT’S JUST THE WAY OF THE WORLD
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL



    I FEED THE POWERLESS
    CHEW IT UP
    SPIT OUT THE REST



    I FEED THE POWERLESS
    CHEW IT UP
    SPIT OUT THE REST



    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL
    THAT’S JUST THE WAY OF THE WORLD
    IT’S JUST THE CURL OF THE BURL



    3. #3 Blasteroid

    | back to the top

    CHANGE YOUR HAIR
    CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES
    I’LL REARRANGE YOUR FACE FOR YOU



    IF YOU CAN BREATHE
    WHEN I AM THRU
    I’LL GIVE IT ALL RIGHT BACK TO YOU



    I WANNA DRINK SOME FUCKING BLOOD
    I WANNA BREAK SOME FUCKING GLASS
    I WANNA SQUEEZE YOU TILL YOU’RE INSIDE OUT
    I WANT IT ALL



    CHANGE YOUR NAME
    CHANGE YOUR EYES
    BECOME THE ONE WHO I DESPISE



    IF YOU ARE SAD
    AND NEED TO CRY
    THEN TURN AROUND AND GO OUTSIDE



    I WANNA DRINK SOME FUCKING BLOOD
    I WANNA BREAK SOME FUCKING GLASS
    I WANNA SQUEEZE YOU TILL YOU’RE INSIDE OUT
    I WANT IT ALL

    4. #4 Stargasm

    | back to the top

    THE TEMPLE OF BODIES
    A BUILDING WITH SOULS
    GIVEN THE COSMOS
    AS WE LET GO
    AS WE LET GO



    LOCKED IN A DANCE
    SURROUNDING THE MOON
    THIS FAR FROM THE CLOUDS
    STARGASM FLOWS
    STARGASM



    LEAD US BY HORSES
    ON THE WAY TO OUR GRAVES
    FATHER THE OWL
    IT IS YOUR FAITH
    IT IS YOUR FAITH



    AWAKE IN THE MOMENT
    AWAKEN THE HEART
    LOOK TO THE SPIRITS
    STARGASM GLOWS
    STARGASM



    AND THEN WE SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE
    BUT YOU’RE NOT HERE
    AND YOUR LEGS AND THE STARS COLLIDE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE



    HENGED FROM THE SOLSTICE
    BOHEMIAN GROVE
    GLESH LIES THE ALTAR
    AS WE LET GO
    AS WE LET GO



    GLASSES ARE EMPTY
    THE OWL HAS FLOWN
    SEVER RELATION
    LIKE YOU DIDN’T KNOW
    LIKE YOU DIDN’T KNOW



    AND THEN WE SHIFT INTO OVERDRIVE
    BUT YOU’RE NOT HERE
    AND YOUR LEGS AND THE STARS COLLIDE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE
    YOU’RE ON FIRE



    5. #5 Octopus Has No Friends

    | back to the top

    TO TEMP THE FOLL INTO THE MINE
    LET LOOSE THE SNAME WITH ANTIDOTE



    TAKE THE HAND
    GUIDE THE WAY
    FAR AWAY
    FIND THE TRUTH
    ALWAYS
    ALWAYS



    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME
    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME




    I SEE YOUR FACE INSIDE THE SMOKE
    IT’S HARD TO SCRAM AND NICE TO CHOKE



    TAKE THE HAND
    GUIDE THE WAY
    FAR AWAY
    FIND THE TRUTH
    ALWAYS
    ALWAYS



    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME
    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME



    LET’S REST AWHILE INSIDE THE CAVE
    DON’T CRY YOU’LL SEE THAT WE’LL BE SAFE



    TAKE THE HAND
    GUIDE THE WAY
    FAR AWAY
    FIND THE TRUTH
    ALWAYS
    ALWAYS



    TAKE YOUR HEART INTO YOUR HAND
    ALWAYS
    TAKE YOUR HEART INTO YOUR HAND
    ALWAYS



    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME
    I’M ON MY WAY BACK HOME

    6. #6 All The Heavy Lifting

    | back to the top

    LIFT YOU UP AGAIN
    GIVE YOU TO THE TREES
    ALL SOUND AND VISIONS ARE
    WHAT THEY ASK OF ME
    LETS RUN FAST THROUGH THE FIELDS
    OVER MOUNTAIN TOPS
    LETS SWIM THROUGH OCEAN WATER
    AND WE’LL NEVER STOP



    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    AND PRETEND THAT EVERYTHING’S FINE
    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    I’LL TELL YOU WHEN



    CAN YOU SHOW ME
    WHERE TO FIND THE STREAM
    I’VE BEEN TOLD BEFORE
    THAT THE WATER’S CLEAN
    WILL YOU COME WITH ME
    TWO OF US CAN DRINK
    MOVE QUICK WE’VE GOT TO HURRY
    THERE’S NO TIME TO THINK



    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    AND PRETEND THAT EVERYTHING’S FINE
    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    I’LL TELL YOU WHEN



    WE DIDN’T COME THIS FAR
    JUST TO TURN AROUND
    WE DIDN’T COME THIS FAR
    JUST TO RUN AWAY



    JUST AHEAD
    WE WILL HEAR THE SOUND
    THE SOUND THAT GIVES US
    A BRAND NEW DAY



    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    AND PRETEND THAT EVERYTHING’S FINE
    JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
    I’LL TELL YOU WHEN


    7. #7 The Hunter

    | back to the top

    ALL THE LOVE I’VE SHOWN
    GIVEN TO THE ONES I’VE KNOWN
    ALL THE LOVE I MAKE
    IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE I TAKE
    ALL THE LIFE I’VE KNOWN
    GIVEN TO THE LIFE I’VE SHOWN
    ALONG THE WAY



    FREE FROM IT ALL
    BREATHE IN THE DARKEST FALL
    WE LAUGH AND CRY THROUGH A BROTHERS EYES FOR NOW



    THROUGH FIRE EMBERS GLOW
    HAUNTED I LIFT THE STONE
    LETTING GO YOUR SPIRIT FLIES



    ALL THE LOVE I’VE SHOWN
    GIVEN TO THE ONES I’VE KNOWN
    ALL THE LOVE I MAKE
    IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE I TAKE
    LIFE IS FLEETING FAST
    BE CAREFUL FOR WHAT YOU ASK
    ALONG THE WAY



    FREE FROM IT ALL
    BREATHE IN THE DARKEST FALL
    WE LAUGH AND CRY THROUGH A BROTHERS EYES FOR NOW



    THROUGH FIRE EMBERS GLOW
    HAUNTED I LIFT THE STONE
    LETTING GO YOUR SPIRIT FLIES



    HIS THORNS ARE ON THE ROAD
    HIS THORNS ARE ON THE ROAD



    IN THE MORNING LIGHT
    THE SPARROW FLIES
    WHEN THE MOON DEVOURS US
    THE PLANET DIES



    FREE FROM IT ALL
    BREATHE IN THE DARKEST FALL
    WE LAUGH AND CRY THROUGH A BROTHERS EYES FOR NOW



    THROUGH FIRE EMBERS GLOW
    HAUNTED I LIFT THE STONE
    LETTING GO YOUR SPIRIT FLIES



    8. #8 Dry Bone Valley

    | back to the top

    HEAD DOWN RUNNING FROM THE BEAST
    BREAK NECK SPEED TAKING ALL MY BREATH
    BLACK FEET SCRAPED AND SCARRED AND DRIPPING BLOOD
    RAIN COME DOWN TAKE ME WITH YOUR FLOOD



    I CAME TO AND I WAS RUNNING FROM YOU
    FEEL YOUR BREATHE ON THE BACK OF MY NECK



    WHERE HAVE I COME TO BE
    IS THIS ALL THAT’S LEFT FOR ME



    I WISH THAT I WAS STILL THERE
    I WANT TO KEEP ON BREATHING



    BULLS ROAR LOUD
    SNAKES MOVE PAST MY FEET
    NO TEETH NO HANDS SET ME FREE
    BONES START RATTLING ROUND INSIDE MY HEAD
    I DON’T KNOW IF I’M ALIVE OR DEAD



    I CAME TO AND I WAS RUNNING FROM YOU
    FEEL YOUR BREATHE ON THE BACK OF MY NECK



    WHERE HAVE I COME TO BE
    IS THIS ALL THAT’S LEFT FOR ME



    I WISH THAT I WAS STILL THERE
    I WANT TO KEEP ON BREATHING



    DIG DEEP KICKING UP ROCK AND DIRT AND SAND
    OUT OF THIS LIFELESS VALLEY BONES IN HAND
    OVER THESE MOUNTAINS TO THE SEAS OF LIFE
    LEAVE THIS DESERT FOR THE SICK AND DAMNED


    9. #9 The Thickening

    | back to the top

    WITH THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW
    WRAPPED UP LIKE A BABY
    AND YOUR HAIR HANGS LONG
    SURROUNDING MY FACE



    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    BURIED DEEP INSIDE MY PAST
    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    HOPING YOU’LL BE THE LAST



    LOVE YOUR WARM EMBRACE
    HOLD ME CLOSE DON’T LET ME GO
    NIPPLE PINK AND COLD
    FILLED UP WITH MOTHERS MILK



    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    BURIED DEEP INSIDE MY PAST
    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    HOPING YOU’LL BE THE LAST



    WITH THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW
    WRAPPED UP LIKE A BABY
    AND YOUR HAIR HANGS LONG
    SURROUNDING MY FACE



    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    BURIED DEEP INSIDE MY PAST
    STRAIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE
    HOPING YOU’LL BE THE LAST


    10. #10 Creature Lives

    | back to the top

    I SAW THE CREATURE FALL
    INTO THE SWAMP FROM WHICH HE SPAWNED
    I HEARD THEM LAUGH AND SAY
    THEY NEVER LIKED HIM ANYWAY



    I TRIED TO TALK TO THEM
    TO HELP YOU ON YOUR FEET AGAIN
    THEY LAUGHED AND SAID TO ME
    THE SWAMP IS RIGHT WHERE I SHOULD BE



    THE CREATURE LIVES
    THE CREATURE LIVES
    THE CREATURE LIVES
    THE CREATURE LIVES


    11. #11 Spectrelight

    | back to the top

    WE TRIP THE LIGHT
    FIREBIRD FLIES
    BURN YOUR INSIDE



    GIVEN A LESSON
    THE PATH I’VE SHOWN
    FOLLOW ALL I KNOW



    INTO THE SPECTRELIGHT
    INTO THE AFTERLIFE



    IT CAME FROM THE OCEAN
    GIFT OF THE SEA
    LAVA FORMS THE STONE



    BELIEF IN POWER
    BELIEVE THE DREAM
    TRUST YOUR OWN TRUTH



    INTO THE SPECTRELIGHT
    INTO THE AFTERLIFE



    YOU LISTEN THROUGH THE LIGHT
    TOLLING ON THE SEA
    BARREN EYES BEHIND YOU
    LEAVE THE SHADOWS WAKING DREAMS



    RISING THROUGH THE DOOR
    WRITHING WITH A KNIFE



    CUT SPEECH
    CUT LIGHT
    CUT CHORD AND BREAK THE DAWNING WRETCH OF SILENCE



    TRUST YOUR OWN TRUTH



    SOULS OF THE FALLEN
    DEATH OF THE GODHEAD
    LISTEN AND BREATHE



    INTO THE SPECTRELIGHT
    INTO THE AFTERLIFE

    | back to the top

    GIVE AND TAKE
    WE ARE FULL OF PRIDE
    ALL IS PROVED IN TIME



    LAY ME DOWN
    STAND MY GROUND
    LAY ME DOWN
    STAND MY GROUND



    TAKING A LIFE
    I SEE IT FLASH BEFORE MY EYES



    TAKING A LIFE
    I SEE IT FLASH BEFORE MY EYES



    RULE BY THE HEAD
    ENDURE TEST OF TIME
    PLANT THE SEED OF MIND



    LAY ME DOWN
    STAND MY GROUND
    LAY ME DOWN
    STAND MY GROUND



    TAKING A LIFE
    I SEE IT FLASH BEFORE MY EYES



    TAKING A LIFE
    I SEE IT FLASH BEFORE MY EYES

    PURSUE HAPPINESS WITH DILIGENCE

    14. #14 The Ruiner* Bonus Track

    | back to the top

    YOU TAKE LIFE
    GIVE NOTHING BACK
    YOU NEED TO RETURN WHAT YOU’VE STOLEN



    YOU NEED LIFE
    TO MULTIPLY
    DEVOUR ALL THAT SURROUNDS YOU




    HEAVY WEIGHS THE CROWN
    LOW HANGS THE HEAD WHO WEARS IT



    DESTROYER
    OF ALL THAT’S GOOD
    WE DON’T NEED A DEATH THAT SURROUNDS YOU



    THE BOLT STRIKES
    TO INFECT
    WE KNOW YOUR INTENTIONS ARE IMPURE



    HEAVY WEIGHS THE CROWN
    LOW HANGS THE HEAD WHO WEARS IT
    SICKNESS CAN’T KILL THIS LOVE
    ALWAYS ALIVE IN MY HEART
    SICKNESS CAN’T KILL THIS LOVE
    ALWAYS ALIVE IN MY HEART
    HEAVY WEIGHS THE CROWN
    LOW HANGS THE HEAD WHO WEARS IT
