Demons 04:00
Demons come, demons stay, In the same desperate way.
Skin 05:56
Red lines, red lines all across the sky. Come over, come over, let me tell you lies. White lines, white lines along the pale night. Lights on, lights on my skin to tell me lies. Black lights, black lights upon my dead lines. Blood lines, blood lines for all the sad nights. Cutting, cutting, a silver dependancy. Running, running away from this dead city. Praying for a change, praying for a chance, Praying for the rain to wash away the pain.
For this is the saddest dream ever, I wish I will remain paler than the palest. For this is a song for my demons, In the darkest hours they made myself scarce. Shades of grey inside my eyes, Shattered memories of the longest night. For this is a love song for my demons, They have made myself paler than the palest.
Unsaid 05:51
The head in the hands, worthless words to sing. The burn upon the neck, coming back at me. The head in the hands, joyless love to give. The fire within the chest, coming right back at me. Still, leaders to define, regardless of my goodbye. Still, leaders to defy, unless I kill them twice. The words in your hands at the end. The worst in my hands at the end.
There are times when life doesn't matter, Finding pain in pleasure. I'm playing games with death, Demons came, waving waves. Letting the wounds be my leader and death be my colour.
