Track Name: Desert Frost
Desert Frost

Footsteps echo through the glass hills
My past life pleasures are far behind
In my eyes red and yellow shine

Desert Frost on my lips
From a serpents kiss
Desert Frost on my lips

One last breath I try to resist
The air grows thin my body weak
Moonlit shadows fade in the night

Desert Frost on my lips
From a serpents kiss
Desert Frost on my lips

I hesitate before the cold
A sillhouette turns to dust
Blood rushing
Beating faster
Beating faster
Beating faster

Fallen into your twisted pit
The last great wilderness
Chaos taken over in rage

Desert Frost on my lips
From a serpents kiss
Desert Frost on my lips
Track Name: Empty Hallway
Empty Hallway

My dreams are swallowing me whole
Sucking me into this despair
Filling my head with the same
Rooftops listen, stars glisten.

Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance
Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance

My dreams are swallowing me whole
Stupid obsessive behaviors
Ideals make me insane
My head hurts and eyes burn

Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance
Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance

My dreams are swallowing me whole
Sucking me into this despair
Filling my head with pain
Rooftops listen, stars glisten.

Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance
Its my turn in the empty hallway
It's my life I'll take that chance
Track Name: Lenore
Lenore


Release my drowning eyes,
Remove the empty stare, that cascades into your dying breath.
In the terror you submit where embraces are left to rot and simple gestures entice the end.

In the dark I hear you call,
In my dreams I still mourn.
In the night I feel your warmth.
Lenore, Lenore, Lenore.

Recede unto fleeting passions,
Finding comfort in your failing words, can I dream this day never began.
The words don't form right, my thoughts are unclear and the rest diminish.

In the dark I hear you call,
In my dreams I still mourn.
In the night I feel your warmth.
Lenore, Lenore, Lenore.

Your image still haunts me.
Your perfume still lingers.
I can still see you walking down the street.
I can still feel your breath against my skin and taste the wine off your lips.

In the dark I hear you call,
In my dreams I still mourn.
In the night I feel your warmth.
Lenore, Lenore, Lenore.

Lenore, release me
Lenore, release me
Lenore, release my drowning eyes.

Lenore, Lenore.
Release me, Release me.

Lenore, release me.
Track Name: Monsters
Monsters

Monsters, monsters, monsters, monsters

Fortunate ones rising from the ashes
Violent horrors taking form
The hold our hands, just to watch up fall
Lying face down in distrust.

Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters, forces beyond our control
Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters

Forsaken rules have lost all there worth
Your ghost of concious tricking you
They try to run our lives, just to lead us to ruin
Changing faces to obscure.

Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters, forces beyond our control
Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters

Your storm affecting millions in the wake
Contaminating the minds of our youth
Suffocating in the air we breathe
How can you destory, destroy, DESTROY!

Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters, forces beyond our control
Monsters, taking the guise of the innocent
Monsters

You are monsters
You are monsters
Monsters
You are monsters.
Track Name: Only In Death
Only In Death

Only in death did they truly become alive
No more lies ruling within human frailty
Only in death did they truly become alive
Your life is just another, superficial ruse

Your mask unveiled
What lies beneath the skin
Your mask unveiled
What lies behind your eyes
Your mask unveiled

Only in death did they every truly realize
The soul only knows the demons in your head
Only in death did they every truly realize
You were never the person, we all thought you were.

Your mask unveiled
What lies beneath the skin
Your mask unveiled
What lies behind your eyes
Your mask unveiled

Only in death did they truly become alive
No more lies ruling within human frailty
Only in death did they every truly realize
The soul only knows the demons in your head

Your mask unveiled
What lies beneath the skin
Your mask unveiled
What lies behind your eyes
Your mask unveiled
Track Name: Strigoi
Strigoi

Shadows creeping in the dense fog
where troubled souls rise from the grave.
The banshee wails in the dead of night,
lament your impending death.

It’s who we are, strigoi night walkers.
It’s who we are, strigoi blood drinkers.

The veil lifts to the waning of the moon
to transcend from this mortal coil.
From the void of eternal night
sisters rise on the broken cross.

It’s who we are strigoi night walkers.
It’s who we are strigoi blood drinkers.

Your flesh is cold and putrid white
rotting in your desolate crypt.
You wander in the shadow of night
feasting on the blood of life.

It’s who we are, strigoi night walkers.
It’s who we are strigoi blood drinkers.
It's who we are strigoi night walkers.
It’s who we are strigoi blood drinkers.
It's who we are strigoi night walkers.
It’s who we are strigoi blood drinkers.

Strigoi night walkers, strigoi blood drinker,
strigoi night walkers.
Track Name: Fallen
Fallen

Take apart the essence of a frail man
His loss of control starts spiraling down
My touch can't cure his failing breath
Nor take away the emptiness

Change the end I'm Falling down
Change the end I'm Falling down

The cold grips tightly to his shoulder
Courses through the blood his veins
Imprinting his echo and bleeding me dry
Till I fight the urge to fall head first

Change the end I'm Falling down
Change the end I'm Falling down

I will tear away the flesh on my bones
I will tear away the flesh on my bones
I will loose myself forever
Just to feel a little closer
Just to feel a little closer

Change the end I'm Falling down
Change the end I'm Falling down

I feel like dream will never end.
Making thorn like scars into my soul
When I breathes the air of the new day
Everything starts to fall apart

Change the end I'm Falling down
Change the end I'm Falling down

I will tear away the flesh on my bones
I will tear away the flesh on my bones
I will loose myself forever
Just to feel a little closer
Just to feel a little closer

I'm Falling down
I'm Falling down
I'm Falling down

down
down
down
I'm falling down.
Track Name: It's All Over (Kitty Lectro Creepy Mix)
It’s All Over
(Kitty Lectro Creepy Mix)
When disaster hits the world,
Everyone listens.
When your world falls apart,
No one listens.
It's all over, It's all over,
It's all over. It's all over.
When your chase your desires,
You are never satisfied.
When you call out for help,
You don't scream loud enough.
It's all over, It's all over,
It's all over. It's all over.
When you fight against yourself,
You just can't win.
Without the right direction,
Everything can change.
It's all over, It's all over,
It's all over. It's all over.
Just when passions flame,
The earth quakes,
You shake, you shake
and you shake.
The earth quakes
and you shake.

It's over,
All over,
Over

It's over, all over,
Over.
