Track Name: Not for Me
Friendship is a noose and I’ve cut down every one
Love is suffocation, love is not for everyone
Love is not for me, love is not for me
Love is not for me, no love is not for me

I never saw you in the light the way the others did
I only saw you in the darkness, only saw you where you hid
I saw you in the evening and underneath the moon
I get so disconnected, I always pull away too soon

Love is not for me, love is not for me
Love is not for me, love is not for me

Summertime is easy when you’ve got nowhere to go
Your beauty is a cancer and the sunshine makes it grow
The grass was always greener till I wound up in the dirt
You told me I would fall there, you told me it would hurt

Love is not for me, love is not for me
Love is not for me, love is not for ...

It’s warm outside but I’m so fucking cold
The kids are playing and I’m growing old
The sun is shining but I’m so cold
The planet spins and it’s oh so slow
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Love is not for me, love is not for me
Love is not for me, love is not for me
Love is not for me no, no no no, love is not for me
Love is not for me no, no no no, love is not for …

Love is not for me, love is not for me
Never will it be, love is not for me
Track Name: Monster
Are you lost, dear? I don’t see you anymore
Are you scared, love? Are you scared to close that door?
Remember … Remember when you looked for me? Did you look for me?
Remember … Remember when you felt so free? Felt so free

I’m a monster, you said
Hiding under your bed
Cryptic words are erased
By the lines on your face

You’ll understand when I’m older and you’re still young
I taped your mouth shut and I cut out your tongue
I chewed up your bones and I spit them out
Now I sit here and wait, bleeding from the mouth

I’m a monster, you said
Hiding under your bed
Cryptic words are erased
By the lines on your face

When you bled for me, I did not feel a thing
When you loved me I did not love anything
I severed all your ties when you needed help
Now I want you to find me in someone else

I’m a monster, you said
As you lay there half dead
I’m a monster, I know
But I’m letting you go
Track Name: End of the World
I miss your lips and the way they would smile when you lie with me
I miss your hips, pale blue eyes and the parts no one else could see
I’ll find you at the end of the world
I’ll find you at the end of the world

Salvation waits on the ball of my tongue till the end of time
I never told you the truth, never stood tall when you were mine
I’ll find you at the end of the world
I’ll find you at the end of the world

I never sleep since you’re gone but I live in another’s dream
My eyes are bloodshot and red, losing sight of everything
I’ll find you at the end of the world
I’ll find you at the end of the world

Oh
When the sky is falling I will save you
When the ocean spills into the city, I swear you won’t be drowning baby
I will find you like I promised when we were fighting with ourselves
I will walk through every raging fire, I will drag you up from Hell
All right

I miss your lips and the way they would smile when you lie with me
I miss your hips, pale blue eyes and the parts no one else could see
You always knew what to say, called me out, pulled me back again
I cut you off, let you down, but I hardly knew you then

I’ll find you at the end of the world
I’ll find you at the end of the world
I love you but I never said the words
I’ll find you at the end of the world
Oh
Track Name: War
So helpless, so destroyed
Watch our minds go to war

Visions of Hell, flame upon flame
Two lovers broken in the worst way
Death speaks through what remains
The shattered and the mouths of dismay

A nightmare came to life
When you thought we were safe

Flames keep rising like you said
You lock yourself inside your head

We’ll never see the light of day
In this cold room so far away

All is written and none of this will change
Our vagrant hearts will never be claimed
Nothing’s hidden, the truth will tear us down
When summer comes, the cold will remain

It’s not fate, we told no lies
Chaos reigns, it blinds your eyes

Shout it out loud, cry until we’re sore
The echoing is so relentless
The end is nearing, if there’s such a thing
As we approach, we’re so defenseless

The witches run, the preachers stay
In this old town where children pray

All is written and none of this will change
Our vagrant hearts will never be claimed
Nothing’s hidden, the truth will tear us down
When summer comes, the cold will remain
When one is taken, I’m crippled and I fall
I’m falling now
To muted voices, I stumble and I crawl
And I’m crawling now

So helpless, so insane
In blindness, chaos reigns
