Track Name: Killing Fields
In empty rooms where energy breathes
one I once knew, entrusted with all that was left of me.
Bask in the glow, drape me in shadow,
centuries weigh down the only true way
-rock the cradle into the frey

Armies of love left in killing fields,
all that you want you know you can steal, you can steal.
Take my air and stop my wheels,
because all that you want you know you can steal, you can steal.
Track Name: The Host Wants A Parasite
The host wants so badly a taker, he lives his own lie.
I have loved and I've lost and I've waited for sense to break through.
I've scarred and I've carried the load that was meant for us both.
The end is not the aim and the past stays the same.

Diagnosed the sickness that laid in his bed
fucked the bloodsuckers until he bled
fucked the bloodsuckers until he bled
Track Name: Under The Stars
You said I wasn't made to be someone's slave,
you were only too kind,
we left our woes behind.
and we whispered 'til dawn and danced under stars.
and we whispered 'til dawn and danced under stars.

Thought your wife wouldn't mind
when you left your child behind.
and we whispered 'til dawn and danced under stars.


You say under the same sky, I say under the stars
You say under the same sky, I say under the stars
Track Name: Eye
I command you, I control you

Hear my voice

Looks his lover in the eye and says "I control you,
-change the way you see me now, because I'm above you"
Every waking moment, eyes see right through you
I see right though you
I see right through you.

Now you're afraid to look me in the eye,
and I don't blame you.

Hear my voice.
Track Name: Effigy
Dance for the wind, burning effigy
swing high and swing low, do what you will to me
Forge a path, forge a path

The flames burn brighter glowing effigy
and you've seen bitter days

I commanded you to leave

As I live and breathe and run wild in distand lands
-and no hand can touch me.

The flames burn brighter, glowing effigy.

As I live and breathe and run wild in distant lands
-and no hand can touch me.
Track Name: Pillar
Well timed, the love,
fell in with dust and glow.

My being depends on one pillar.

Far too easy to change,
to leave this hope, find another one,
all said, all done, you remember well.

And still unphased, one pillar

The body will stray, the mind at ease
drain off, get out, return, release, release

And still unphased, one pillar
Track Name: Hands Clean
You've done your part,
and your strings bind.
Had your own,
and years from now you won't have won.

I don't need your prying eyes.
Are you so tough?

Enough!
"Over your shoulder," -such advice!
Enough!

You've done your part,
You've done your part,
You've done your part, wash your hands clean of it!

You've done your part.
