Lyrics

1. Ain’t Fit To Live Here

2. No Good, Mr. Holden

New Day when beauty’s all gone.
And blues follows a lifeless prowl
My traveled mind spins way too far
My whining head is impossible to hold
My eyes are dead the dub ice cold
The spies are all gone
Suddenly the sky is clear but so hard to feel
Quiet hatred blows my mind as everything around me all breaks down
As they watch by the fires a reality you a

Change is all I want but I can’t do it all
When the crystal world can the darkness call?
No I’m no good you’re no god
When you do tear down my fences to fall
New day now they’re breaking my wall
I’m building an army for my mental wall
Just give me your mind your head and your soul
Give me your sun and show me your moon
One step closer they will sigh
Your future with the past
Heads may go so we can choose before they take you out
In shallow truth and hate your days go by
Experiments in lies
We’re all in line to step aside till you stick to their plan

They say you’re insane so don’t say a word
If it has a name, it has no trace
The dust makes things red
The life that you lived will never come back
And there’s nothing easy so hit with the rain

They say you’re insane so don’t say a word
If it has a name, it has no trace
The travelled mind is all about freedom
The dust that you breathe makes everything red
Life that your lived will never come back
And there’s nothing easy
So hit with the rain

Change is… But I can do it all
When the crystal world can the darkness call
No I’m no good you’re no god
When you do tear down my fences to fall
No I’m no good you’re no god
When you do tear down my fences to fall

3. Hisingen Blues

Going by the riot
Call the rest a stone
Leading to the isle
I don’t wanna go

Nothing really matters
Even life or death
Meeting with the man
To feel the dragons breath

Where is the future?
There is no past
Only the present
And will it last?

Greed is the product
Of the fruitful days
Brother have no worries
Captain Adler’s case

Lucifer beside me
We are holding hands
I don’t need to travel
[?] across the land

Oh Lucifer, please take my hand
Oh Lucifer gonna take my hand
(Yup)

4. Uncomfortably Numb

I wasn’t there when you needed me
You never let me in your life
I didn’t say what bothered me
You sure said more than that
The silence that followed didn’t do us any good
And it seems like you settled for me
Cause I was the best that you could get
But there wasn’t enough
I know what you want and you’re not the one for me

I’ve been leaving you since the day we met
And it feels like you have too
I remember when I met you
The day I saw your smile
And now it’s time to let go
Oh, it’s time to feel alive

The problems I had with you
Are the ones you have with me
Even though we’re holding love
We both know we’ve drifted apart
I guess this is it, why bother when there’s nothing left
When neither you or me are in
Growing bitter and uncomfortably numb
Losing what we had
At least we tried, but it wasn’t meant to be

I’ve been leaving you since the day we met
And it feels like you have too
The reasons that I loved you are the ones that made me go
The reasons that I loved you, oh, I gotta let you know

I should have seen it coming
Should have known what to expect
I should have seen the signs
Should have known that it was wrong

I’ve been leaving you since the day that we met
And it feels like you have too
The reasons that I loved you are the ones that made me go
The reasons that I loved you, oh, I gotta let you know

I am sorry
That we got here
But I’m glad
Glad that we are done
I don’t want to go back there
Cause the love I felt is gone
Cause the love I felt is gone, alright

5. Buying Truth (Tack Och Förlåt)

6. Longing

7. Ungrateful Are The Dead

8. Rss

9. The Siren

I was captive on a slave boat rowing through the swamp
they threw me off into the lake of alligators
eyes were glowing in the dark, and fear was in the air
as the beasts were closing in, panic struck my mind
swimming through the mud, yes I was swimming through the mud
and a thousand flamingos led my way,
riding to the feast for I was gonna meet my doom

Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my sleep
Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my sleep

I thought it was a feast of friends but lord they proved me wrong
what seemed to be my rescue turned out to be a trap
suddenly I was alone inside the demon’s house
He climbed the walls with blood and murder glowing through his eyes
and I couldn’t escape and every move I made was wrong.

Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my sleep
Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my sleep

In the shape of skins and sirens he’s induced me with his song
trying to choke me and leave me in my sleep
Don’t wake me up before the demon takes my soul

Fear and anger made my face turn white as snow,
My blood turned cold as ice, my legs began to shake
There was no way I was gonna let the demon win

In the darkest hour, my woman brought me back to life
She heard my screams, she woke me from my dream
But I still got the demon trapped inside my head

Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my dream
Tonight a demon came into my head and tried to choke me in my dream

I still have the demon
back inside my head
He must be some siren
He is in my dream

10. Cooking Brew

[Digipak Bonus Track]
