Track Name: The Eye
They parade at night,
in the show that they create.

You can dream all you want,
All the faces seem the same.
Stay awake please.

Oooo
They saw a life flash through an eye.
An eye for an eye

Vessels break apart,
any closer to the gain?

A fondle in the dark,
would it be so much to wait?

Stay awake please.

Oooo
They saw a life flash through an eye.
An eye for an eye

Hold, hold, hold tight.
Your Light.

Oooo
They saw a life flash through an eye.
An eye for an eye
Track Name: Makers
Verse 1:
I used to walk bolt upright to keep from laying down,
Everyday protected then in the night I find.
You're inside, you're inside.
The wrong side of my mind.
You're outside, you're outside.
The right side of my mind.

Chorus:
You're not my god,
You're not my god,
You choose to roam
You're not my god at all

Verse 2:
I used to feel respected
I used to feel unique.
But that person shatters every time you speak.
You're inside, you're inside.
The wrong side of my mind.
You're outside, you're outside.
The right side of my mind.

Chorus:
You're not my god,
You're not my god,
You choose to roam
And I'm not your clone.

Bridge
I used to feel respected
I used to feel unique.
But that person shatters every time you speak.

Chorus:
You're not my god,
You're not my god,
You choose to roam
You're not my god at all,
Track Name: Taking Thought
If I walked to you, would walk on me?
If I talked to you would you tell on me?
Would you analyse my thoughts?
Extracting all I know.
Extracting all I know.

Or will you meet me one on one?
Will you meet me one on one?
To find a pot of gold.
To find a pot of gold.
To find a scrap of hope and keep me from going cold.

Would you lie to me, if I relied on you?
You're just chalking a score with little point to prove.
Would you analyse my thoughts?
Extracting all I know.
Extracting all I know.

Or will you meet me one on one?
Will you meet me one on one?
To find a pot of gold.
To find a pot of gold.
To find a scrap of hope and keep me from going cold.
Track Name: I Keep Counting
I washed my hands off you
And take back my own devices
We'll soon be wishing that
You'll soon, will be gone.

My stem cells have unwound
And my back is broken.
My mouth is gagged and bound,
Come back, come back mistreater.
But I keep counting.

My jaw is made of glass
And your words have cut it.
My face is blue and black.
Come back, come back mistreater.

I was waiting outside your door,
Wishing I could say more,
Falling on to the floor.
I keep counting.

Equate your life to expense things and
You've never done wrong. (low tone)
A life filled with silverspoons and
Sticks in, sticks in moons.

Now my stems cells have rewound
Now my back is broken.
My mouth still gagged and bound.
Come back, come back mistreater.
