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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
