Track Name: A Plague Upon Those Lying Lips
Did you know, I lay awake at night
I know where you've been, under the fickle, moonlight.
Is he better than me, did he love you more?
Did he hold you tight, as you cried, on the bathroom floor?

As above, so below
Hide them deep so no one knows
Close your eyes, pray you die
A plague upon those lying lips

As above, so below
A plague upon those lying lips

If justice exists no more lies will leave your lips, is it my fault that you gave it all away?
I gave you the moon, I gave you the stars
You gave me a kiss and a wrist full of scars.
I hate you as much as I hate myself.

As above, so below
Hide them deep so no one knows
Close your eyes, pray you die
A plague upon those lying lips.

As above, so below
A plague upon those lying lips.

Those lying lips.

As above, so below
Hide them deep so no one knows
Close your eyes, pray you die
A plague upon those lying lips.

As above, so below (Those lying lips)
Hide them deep so no one knows (Those lying lips)
Close your eyes, pray you die (Those lying lips)
A plague upon those lying lips.

Those lying lips.
Track Name: Mourning Glory
Lets go

You can't inject your life this way,
Once it's gone, its gone. Washed away.
I heard you cry out last night,
I'd end myself to make them pay.

Oh love, I need you to stay.
For one more day, one more song.

Molly takes her mourning glory,
The only way she can tell her story.
What she don't know couldn't kill her right?
I whispered as her skin turned white.

Discrete pills will leave you in ruin,
Not but the shell of a broken human.
And I can't take this anymore,
Being curled up on the bathroom floor.

These drugs they take, they take you away.
Your veins of God, to whom you pray.

Molly takes her mourning glory,
The only way she can tell her story.
What she don't know couldn't kill her right?
I whispered as her skin turned white.

Oh no, I can't take this anymore.
I need it in my blood.
I need it in my soul.
This world is a sinking ship.

Molly takes her mourning glory,
The only way she can tell her story.
What she don't know couldn't kill her right?
I whispered as her skin turned white.

We can pretend day won't become night.
We can pretend we're both alright.
Molly's done with that kind of life.
Molly you will be alright.
Track Name: Xenocide
Enter stellar galaxy,
If you want your people to be free.
Keep them away from the human race.
We'll make them our alien slaves.

Why won't I be free?
I want to live among the trees.

They stole our great technology,
And drove our queen into the sea.
We're rebuilding at a fast pace,
But now our shame is disgrace.

Why won't I be free?
I want to live among the trees.

The line is drawn in the sand,
You brought war onto our land.
The humans broke our ancient trust,
By turning our queen into dust.

Why won't I be free? (I be free)
I want to live among the trees. (Among the trees)

Why won't I be free? (I be free)
I want to live among the trees. (Among the trees)
Track Name: The Abyss
Battle not with monsters,
Lest you yourself become a monster,
And if you gaze for long enough into the abyss,
The abyss gazes also into you.

I stared into the abyss,
And it stared right back.
I tried to look away,
But the sky had gone black.

Where are the stars?
I whispered like a coward.
The laughing reply echoed out,
"They have all been devoured."

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.

I screamed into the abyss,
And it spoke back to me.
It's voice was that,
Of an unrepentant sea.

"Beware! Beware!"
The ocean cried out.
For it is night,
And there are monsters about.

"And how do I save myself?"
I begged, raving, and ranting.
The abyss merely laughed,
"You can't."

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.

I whispered into the abyss,
And all it did was listen.
It was a peaceful surrender,
And my sins were forgiven.

It is not so bad,
Living without the stars.
For I know I have fallen,
I just can't see how far.

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.
