Track Name: Danger Close
Since day one we have been side by side
Fighting for each other as though we're brothers
But you go to a fight i can not follow
It kills me inside that you are alone
It kills me inside that you are alone

This fight is not yours, this fight is not mine
yet im involved as much as you, if i could end this all
If i had the power to stop this
These nights would be easier
You raise your sword, I'll raise my glass
This is my prayer for you

Since day one we have been side by side
Fighting for each other as though we're brothers

This fight is not yours, this fight is not mine
yet im involved as much as you, if i could end this all
If i had the power to stop this
These nights would be easier
You raise your sword, i'll raise my glass
This is my prayer for you

if you should fall my life will fall without you
there is no future for me without you
this is my prayer, prayer
This is my prayer, prayer

Since day one we have been side by side
Fighting for eachother as tho we're brothers
But you go to a fight
A fight i cannot follow

We are danger close
Track Name: Dr Jekyll/Mrs Hyde
You've haunted me my whole life
Its all i can remember
Your shadow has always been there
In the back of my mind
Affecting my decisions as though it was me
It's all I've ever known
Picking and choosing who I let in
Because the fear of you
Fear of you
During the day you hold your head high
You're the person we love
Never showing what lies beneath
The true face of this beast

Dr Jekyll by day, Mrs Hyde by night
This is how you haunt me (how you haunt me)
You hit the bottle and let the beast loose,
No chains can hold (no chains can hold)
Plates in my face, scars in my mind this is how we survive
No longer will you haunt me or my family
this ends now

Watching you day by day, night by night
On your throne of bones
Only caring about your next hit,
To hide the pain you feel inside
I know you've been battered and bruised,
But this is no way to live
This beast is your escape from the life that you lead

By the end of the night you lay on the ground
Clothes ripped, soiled with the blood of others
You are happy there, this is bliss for you
you would not change a fucking thing
By the end of the night you lay on the ground
Clothes ripped, soiled with the blood of others
You are happy there, this is bliss for you
you would not change a fucking thing
I can feel the urge to end this, to save my family from this beast
To reach out and take the life from you, just as you would have me to do

This is how you haunt me (how you haunt me)
You hit the bottle and let the beast loose
No chains can hold (no chains can hold)
Plates in my face, scars in my mind,
This is how we survive
No longer will you haunt me or my family this ends now

Wake the fuck up

We tried for years to fight this, just as we fought for you
But in the end we lost it all and i hope you know
But in the end we realise this is a fight we cannot win
But in the end we realise this is a fight we've lost
Track Name: The Masquerade
Welcome to the masquerade
There's no kings or queens here,
Only jesters and pawns playing your game

Siren! Siren!

You use you beauty to lure us in
using your song to dull our defences

Siren! Siren!

Leeching, twisting, distorting
Leeching, twisting, distorting

We are nothing to you, this is a game to you
you're messing with our fucking lives
We are nothing to you, this is a game to you
you're messing with our fucking lives

Moving from pack to pack
Leeching, Twisting, Distorting

What has become of your
What has become of your life

Oh Fuck!

Siren! Siren!
Track Name: Checkmate
They give and take as they please,
Quick loans to fix your problems.
Death salesmen trading with your soul.
Attacking hearts with families,
what will you leave behind?
They've got the best solution,
Just as long as you sign.

Just sign your life away,
Cashing cheques that you don't own.
Just sign your life away,
Watch the vultures pick the bones.

Vultures

The free world has become a slaughterhouse.
The rich get richer, The poor get poorer,
and it makes me fuckin' sick...

If you could only see
If you could only see
What freedom means to us
The end is closer than you think
They hand us every step
That we take to victory
Wer'e playing in their game
We're playing by their rules

The end is closer than you think
Why cant we fucking stop and see
What has become of our Humanity
The end is closer than you think
Let's just wake up and truly see
That we have become nothing but mindless drones...

Mindless drones
