Track Name: Equinox
Now’s the time
Head in hands as the sun blinds
Now’s the time
Your tremble rumbles the frontline

I’ll be here, I’ll be here
Forever waiting
I’ll be here, I’ll be here
Forever waiting, forever patient

They’ve drawn a line
The grains of sand determine
Your fate and mine
Bite down hard and dig your heels in because

I’ll be here, I’ll be here
Forever waiting, forever patient

The firing line
Tears down the constitution
Of your life
Let what remains end your confusion

I’ll be here, I’ll be here
Forever waiting
I’ll be here, I’ll be here
Forever waiting, forever patient

Now’s the time
You’re the day and I’m the night
Now’s the time
We’re equal at last and I’ll take what’s mine

I am here, I am here
I have arrived
I am here, I am here
I have arrived
Open your eyes
Track Name: Chaser
I know they're coming
I'll take her in my hand
And she'll fuck with my head
Just like she always planned

They work together
Changing who I am
She takes the sting out
From those that beat me down

As her lips touch mine
Her heat numbs my need
My need to be somebody
The bitch knows I'm weak

Chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser

The chaser hates me
Loves my poisoned blood
But I just can't resist her
I knew I never could

She's killing me
Taking me piece by piece
Until I'm a hollow shell
Of all I once believed

And now she's had her way
She'll kick me to the curb once again
But tomorrow this will all be a blur
And I'll blame everyone except her

Chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser, chaser
Track Name: Killing Time
I've seen you on our ravaged roads, smiling, guiltless about our fate
Your mouth spits lies but your eyes reveal all
I've seen how the crowds part as you walk through
But I know what you've done
I know what you've done

I've heard the whispers and seen the twitches on the faces of your friends
You're as oblivious to them as you are me
You need to see
You need to see
You need to see
Someone should make you see

A thousand hopes in your hands, a thousand reasons to change
Why won't you change?
Why won't you change?
I could make a stand, I could be the one
I could save us all by ending your days
I'll plot and scheme until I see a way
Until the clock strikes, I'm just killing time

My body quakes as I step into the night
The poison in my veins adds fuel to my fire
You're my prey and I'll hunt you down
You stole our lives; It's time to take yours
The blade's up my sleeve and eager to breathe
I hide in the shadows as I watch you pass
My pace quickens, my pulse pumps harder
It's killing time
Track Name: Sanguine
Lost souls, bleak landscapes
Blue skin, empty hands
What a waste, don't go to waste

Blistered heels, bruised desire
Bitten tongue, words decay
What a waste, don't go to waste

Hidden in shadows, don't hide, don't hide
Fearing denial, don't fear
An eternity waiting, don't wait, don't wait
Through the faces, she's here

Hidden in shadows, don't hide, don't hide
Fearing denial, don't fear
An eternity waiting, don't wait, don't wait
Through the faces, she's here

Crumpled and creased, find your feet
She moves at arm's reach
Cheeks of blood burning
Sanguine

Kindred spirit, you can turn your fate
She's there for the taking, don't leave it too late
Let the cold rush, flavour your skin
The taste of which is drenched in sin

As your fingers lock, don't let her go
As frightening as our hearts find the unknown
Find the fight deep down within
Let her golden touch cave you in

Kindred spirit, you can turn your fate
She's there for the taking, don't leave it too late
Let the cold rush, flavour your skin
The taste of which is drenched in sin

As your fingers lock, don't let her go
As frightening as our hearts find the unknown
Find the fight deep down within
Let her golden touch cave you in
Let her in
Track Name: Everything Ends...
The beauty of it. To be absorbed so much by another that you see through their eyes. They consume you almost entirely and the love their heart beats sends ripples through them like a stone cast across a wave. You’ll never know that now. In fact, you’ve never known that. The sadness in your eyes tells me your life story and it’s a life lived alone.

I’ve waited for this moment for a long time. Everything ends and when it does, it takes all you are and ever were with it. It’s like glass. Everything is clear until one thing hits you. That one thing you didn’t see coming that shatters you and all those remaining fragments are your memories, which gradually crumble away.

I’m your one thing and you’re just like everyone else.
Track Name: Any Day Could Be Your Last
I've walked this road before but the first time I didn't know it
Life flying by in the blink of an eye
The dirt's hard to scrub off when you've surrounded yourself with filth
Drinking, smoking, fucking away our lives

Any day, any day, any day, any day could be your last
Find the guts, find the guts, find the guts, find the guts to make your life count

The dust on my rags has been weighing me down
But not as much as the attitude I adopted to get by
I was distracted, paid no attention to the clock ticking
It took someone to show me I was wasting my life

Any day, any day, any day, any day could be your last
Find the guts, find the guts, find the guts, find the guts to make your life count
Any day, any day, any day, any day could be your last
Find the guts, find the guts, find the guts, find the guts to make your life count

As all the things turned red
The green of enemies eyes was all that was left

Sent shivers down my spine
Those words I held as mine
Gripping them so tight
My knuckles became white

and I, and I, and I, and I

I found a reason to live
To be alive's a gift
Treasure who you're with
And all friends will forgive
All your mistakes
Take a chance to break
Away from what you know
You can do it alone

Change the life you chose
Then you'll fucking show
The lowest of the low
You'll take everything you're owed
Greed is good for the bad
But when they've taken all you have
It's yours to take back
It's yours to take back

So Live for today
It's the only way
A life with regrets
Is a life you've betrayed
All that I ask
Is that you take a chance
And remember these words
That are written in the stars

Live for today
It's the only way
A life with regrets
Is a life you've betrayed
All that I ask
Is that you take a chance
And remember these words
That are written in the stars
Any day could be your last
Any day could be your last
