Track Name: Again
We got into a fight
It never came to light
And while we went to rest, oh Anna
Put everything else first, while we digressed

And while we were asleep
We sunk our dreams so deep
That by the rising tide, oh Anna
They shriveled and died, oh Anna

Can't you hear the call?
There ain't no use at all
We can no longer hide, oh Anna
From all the times we tried, again, again, oh Anna

The sound of the metal doors
Their screech taking flight
To wake the night owl
The sound of the metal doors
Words taking hold
Again
Track Name: I Walk Away
The rose in the meadow
The flower you carry
Ripe for the taking
And you know I’m a loving soul

No I won't climb the barricades
The people may be watching
It ain't the sound of the avalanche
It is the sound of the backroom door
And I walk away

Sure there are some things
And I try to take stuff on
But you know I can’t force it
Take some sugar with your coffee

No I won't climb the barricades
The people may be watching
It ain't the sound of the avalanche
It is the sound of the backroom door
And I walk away

Saying I won't start today
No I won’t start today
Saying I won't start today
No I won’t start today
And I walk away
Track Name: Golden Nights
Shuck me, where’s the hurry?
You’re gonna eat me raw
I keep on, even when it’s going down
Touch me, get on going, chewing in the dark
And I won’t sleep waiting for the rise

Into golden nights

Shuck me, you shuck me right
Now see her silent breathing life
Before I’ll part your body’s side, naked in the dark
And I won’t sleep until we redefine

Into golden nights
Track Name: Pockets Are Lighter
Ain’t no use to watch the murder scene
It won’t earn you bucks on the silver screen
You began to dig your grave many years ago

You just live your life from day to day
'till the nagging feeling fades away
You forgot the stuff you shoved down the hole
But you love keeping up the show

Off to school cause you need to learn a trade
Off to work cause you need to fill your plate
Off to bed ‘cause again you worked too late for love

Off to the pub cause you need some air
Off to the shop cause you need a suit to wear
Whatever it was, you don’t care no more
But you’re still keeping up the show

Pockets are lighter
Futures are brighter
Pockets are lighter

Freed from the real
Numb in between
No longer care
No longer there
You have never been caught in a race so long
Track Name: Phantom Warrior
Phantom Warrior
Phantom Warrior
Phantom Warrior
Phantom Warrior

Seeing with his phantom eyes
Hearing with his phantom ears
Thinking with his phantom mind
And longing with his phantom heart

Fearless Warrior
Phantom Warrior
Faceless Warrior
Phantom Warrior

Madly crying out for years
But whispering in no man’s ears
Sadly dreaming phantom dreams
And dying with his silent screams

Why does he haunt those who may live forever?
He is a phantom, he is a warrior,
He is a

Phantom Warrior
Fearless Warrior
Phantom Warrior
Faceless Warrior

Why does he haunt those who may live forever?
During office hours
He is a phantom, he is a warrior
He is a phantom Warrior
Track Name: Through the Night
When we roamed the night
And the night embraced the people
We unlocked doors

But then I’m still here
In this play you love to parry me
I've been alone before
It’s no life’s worth at all

It is an evil play with a beguiling voice
that clouds the mind all day ‘till the mind gets numb
and you’ll run into the night
where they wait to devour you all

She’s seen you run, she’s seen you fall
You’ve heard it all before but you’re going on
Roll the dice, refuel the spite
In an endless flight
Through the night, through the night!

There ain’t no soul alive within these thrown-together bones
Your bleeding leaves a mess upon the cobblestones

It is the fear that guides you through the night
As you try to keep a hold on your feeble mind
Curse the light, burn the life
As you fly
Through the night, through the night!

You’re a ghost driving a meat coated skeleton made from stardust.
What do you have to be scared of?
