Track Name: The Whore of Babylon
The lines start to blur, between you and her, you thought you had this all under control, but now that the beast, has sunk it's teeth, you are just not who you used to be.

The voice started as just a whisper, but now it's all that you can hear. x2

They're lining up, one by one, to take their turn, wearing your skin, it's becoming harder to tell, where they end and you begin, now you only, stand by and watch, as they destroy, the life that was yours.

The lines start to blur, between you and her, you thought you had this all under control, but now that the beast, has sunk it's teeth, you are just not who you used to be.

Well here you are again, another midnight s.o.s., for far too long the guilt and the shame kept you in silence.

Now no one believes a single thing you have to say, unrecognizable and wishing that you could just...

Run away, just run away, without a trace. x2
Track Name: We're Carrying the Fire
Instrumental (No vocals)
Track Name: Irreplaceable
The faceless destroyer, coming to collect another, but this one cuts deeper, I vowed to love, I vowed to protect, but they're only words in the end.

I hope you understand, that this wasn't by my hand, no matter how hard we try, we fall at the hands of time.

If this must be good-bye, just know I'd never lie, you were her reason to try, you were the light in her eyes. x2

With darkness on the horizon, I'm certain as a new day comes, the new rising sun will never shine as bright as the old one. x2

The silence is deafening. x4
Track Name: Parallels
Instrumental (No vocals)
Track Name: What a Beautiful Night for the End of the World
You said, you said this feels like the end again, but it doesn't.....x2

Feel like the first time, when we knew it wouldn't last, feel like the first time when we knew we'd always be back.

You said, you said this feels like the end again, but it doesn't.....x2

Feel like the first time, when we knew it wouldn't last, feel like the first time when we knew we'd always be back.

But now nothing looks familiar, and the colours have started to fade, with nothing left to live for, an infinite oblivion, with no escape,with no way out, we start to accept our fate, we look each other in the eye, and breathe out for one last time.

It was that feeling of something new but it lasted forever. x4

All we do is expire. x4
