Track Name: Scratching My head With Ink
Shock across the town,
I've carried my cross into the night
And now there howling at my door to scrape
The raw material from my mind
I'm running on empty, I'm running to fall
Praying to die at the hands of the wolf
Have you ever had writers' block before?

Because there's nowhere to run, nowhere to run
Can't hide from myself can't hide from the sun
There's nowhere to run, nowhere to run
Counting down the seconds is my kind of fun
There's nowhere to run, nowhere to run
Scared to death if being caught without a gun
There's nowhere to run, nowhere to run
Another night lost to the page, where I begun

Scratching my head enough to bleed,
Better than being caught without ink,
Because I'm running on empty and I'm running to fall
Praying to die at the hands of the world

And I've been here too many times before
To settle my debt with the crowd, I know the score
Be patient, you'll have to wait for me
I'll quicken the pace if you sing for me

I'm burning at my limbs, struggling to remember how I even got in this
I swear it's not my fault,
Another night of writing I'll be off my fucking skull

And I can't be a creative
When I'm stuck in the old songs, contemplating
And I can't be, anticipating
To have a hit on the radio, the one I'm always chasing

There's nowhere to run
There's nowhere to run
There's nowhere to run
There's nowhere to run
There's nowhere to
Run
Track Name: MasoKiss Me
Tell me am I a monster?
For letting lust in through my door
A succubus this miss
Previously enlisted
I’m not saving this for the curtain call

'Cause sex ain’t no clause for power at all
But here in my bed baby
You’ll lay back and obey because
I am the law

Count my fingers
Get my foot out the door
Can’t stomach the taste
And I’ll tell you I’ve been pretty bored
I’ve danced the dance to sweat
Until the dawn
My libido’s packed its bags
'Cause I’m not hunting anymore
It’s like

I’ve lost my will to lay down
Pass up a one night for endless amor
It’s like I’ve lost the right
To play out all night
and hear them screaming for
more and more

It’s like I’ve lost the will to live
And since chivalry is dead
Why should I

Take a whip to the jaw
because I’m tired of fighting
The locks at the door

Meet me monogamy
At the altar lays my noose
Just like a spider, I'm spinning
Until I'm eaten up by you

I’ve lost my will to lay down
A one night for endless amor
It’s like I just can’t get it up
Is it a sin that I love too much?

Take a whip to the jaw (Take a whip to the jaw)
Tired of lying
Take a whip to the jaw (Take a whip to the jaw)
Tired of trying
Take a whip to the jaw (Take a whip to the jaw)
Tired of lying
Take a whip to the jaw
But I'll never be tired of trying

What does this world have
What does the city offer?
What does this world have
For you

Bled out and buried in sheets silver
When all I wanted was gold
I’m climbing on mountain tops
When all I want is to be back home

Bled out and buried in sheets of silver
When all I wanted was gold
I’m climbing on mountain tops
When all I want is to be back home
Track Name: It Takes A Slave
Ludicrous Lucifer leave me hanging dry
I'm alive but I'm certainly cold
You are the monkey on the back
An addiction to the
Heroin please save me
Give me all I'm giving back
They speak about a wedding
Their hands are tied against each others throats
Through video games and nicknames
We all seek an addiction
Addiction, addictive resolve

Oh, somebody speak
My mind has lost volition
My accounts are all empty
Oh what a sight, what a guy (this guy)
Taking hits from rock bottom
Writing his will on broken bottles
Spread eagle, you want the thrills I got them
Can anybody stop the crave
And as I try a fresh sample
It takes a mother fucking slave
Well maybe I'm to vain to even notice that
Deceit it showing, rhythm growing
Bastards cheaters hatred preachers

Divine the lust I feel alive
Check your pulse
You’ve got a devil on your shoulder saying
Take it baby
Take it sugar
Get your fix.
But the fix ain’t gonna fix it so why
Bother bother, help my mother
Give me another drink, to calm my nerves
Why does everything hurt?

Apocalyptic lips
Malnourished emptiness
Somewhat hypnotic this psychotic will
Of fulfilment
Taking a career to commit
A suicidal admission
The message is clear
We’re seeking a redemption

Speak in tongues
Never naysayers, not once
Just an army of broken
Arms left wide open
Reset to numb
Don’t shed a tear for we, we are fine
Don’t shed a tear for we, we’ll make it out alright
Don’t shed tear for me, I’m high
Don’t shed a tear for me, I’m higher

Don’t shed a tear, for me, i’m high
Don’t shed a tear for me I’m higher

Why should I
Bother bother, bother mother
Father lover enemy and my brother
Tell me father father, mother lover
I love her my brother, I love her, I love her
Track Name: Sharkfeet
The waters thicker, than fake blood
The vodka tastes better than wine
The lonely heart dying in the chatroom
Sleeps better than the hero offline
But maybe I digress, I
Haven't even spoken to you yet
On the precipice, regret on a ledge
Push me to my bed

Pulling out my fingernails (I’m soaked in blood)
But I’m a shade lighter than you
And I think I’m about to puke
Oh sweet release, please tell me the joke
Am I the punchline? Or just the last one to stay and choke
Oh bringer bring me a beat
A dreamers disease, a curse through my knees
Old roots pay the fee, take the axe to the tree
I’m out of control
And I’m coming with a kiss explode

Fear, is a funny thing
Starting from my fists through my skin
How I try to run away
Oh say it isn’t so
You got my temper to show
How I tried to run away

How I try to run away
They say that only the good die young
And how the nicest finish last
But I’ve met a few exceptions to the law
The kitten cuts deepest with its dirty little claws


A wrecking ball I hit the wall
Laying a hand on my back
As my guts hit the floor
Such disrespect to gain a paper crown
Cutting me down, straight to the ground
I bet you up there you feel so fucking proud
Well my throat is shut
I guess I wasn't even ready to talk

I guess I wasn’t even ready to talk
There's no surprise
You've told me lies, I despise
Can't even recognise

I've never felt so proud
To introduce myself to the crowd
Oh Jesus Christ, I cannot thank you enough
As a non-believing boy
You’re blessing me with so much love
I can’t even count the time
And I can’t even count the fucking knives
Now this boy's eating bread
Got a restart in his head
There is daylight to be spent
Oh how I pity the dead

Fear is a funny thing
Starting from my fists through my skin
How I tried to run away
Oh say it isn’t so
You got my temper to show
