Track Name: Cheating Death
Darkness sings in my head
Demons sneak in my bed
It seems I cannot help but fall
Darkness sings in my head
Demons sneak in my bed
Once I open the gate to them all

I'm cheating death
I'm below the zenith
I'm cheating death
Holding my last breath

Carve my call in hallow stone
Clench my fists of heavy bone
Heed my word against their will
Carve my call in hallow stone
Clench my fists of heavy bone
But never can they get their fill

I'm cheating death
I'm below the zenith
I'm cheating death
Holding my last breath

<bridge>
You see my shell, my trap is laid
Sure you thought you came to save
My facade begins to fade
Greet the dawn as my new slave

<solo>

"Have you tried shooting him?"

I'm cheating death
I'm below the zenith
I'm cheating death
Holding my last breath

I'm cheating death
I'm below the zenith
I'm cheating death
Holding my last breath

I'm cheating death
I'm below the zenith
I'm cheating death
Holding my last breath
...cheating death
Track Name: OFF
You stumble
But keep walking
You stumble
trip over your feet
You stumble
But keep talking
You stumble
And lose your seat

I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall
I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall

You fumble
All your words
You mumble
All your slurs
You fumble
Through all your words
You mumble
Through all your slurs

I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall
I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall

(Music interlude)

Through your broken teeth
Through your token thoughts
Through the scars beneath
Through all you have lost

I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall
I saw you go
You fell off
I heard you fall

I saw you go
I heard you fall
I saw you go
You fell off the wagon again
Track Name: Oblivion
You... are no where
To be found
You... cant save me
From the hard hard ground
I'm Straining...
Just to hear your sound
You ever only give me ...
pennies on the pound

I hit the wall of Oblivion
I hit the wall of Oblivion

So... sad I
sit here all alone
Brought so down...
Just by your simple tone
No hope left...
You never throw bone
I'm far too young to....
Be acting like a crone

I hit the wall of Oblivion
I hit the wall of Oblivion

(Bridge)

Buried...
Deep inside your past
For...get...you
You lost me so damn fast
Unconditional
My love for you was vast
Blindsided..
How I thought that it would last
Unknowing..
That that stone was the last
The very last stone
That you would ever cast

Here I come... Oblivion
Here I come... Oblivion

You... are no where
To be found
You... cant save me
From the hard hard ground
I'm still... Straining...
Just to hear your sound
I'm still... Failing...
To make you turn around
Track Name: NOT
Slip into the inky darkness
For-get-the-troub-bles of the light
Move into the void of sparkless
Let-my-self-lose the fight

Disturb me not, Let me rest
I Turn to rot, Forget the past

Lose myself among deep waters
Drift-be-yond-all cares and thought
Forget the will of all good daughters
Swim past brambles that would be caught

Disturb me not, Let me rest
I Turn to rot, Forget the past

Light shines deep, trying to raise me
Lur-ing-taun-ting with interest
Still I turn not wanting to see
Sights-which-bring an-ger to infest
(Light shines deep, trying to raise me
Still I turn away not wanting to see)

Disturb me not, Let me rest
I Turn to rot, Forget the past

{I'm not you, I'm not me
Blinded by life,
My eyes cant see
I'm not you, I'm not me}

Slip into inky the darkness
Let myself lose the fight
Track Name: Hideaway
Dig deeper - they are coming
Dig deeper - hold your breath
Dig deeper - keep on running
Dig deeper - they bring death

Hideaway Live to fight another day
Hideaway Live to fight another day

Dig deeper - throw them off
Dig deeper - on their toes
Dig deeper - beat their game
Dig deeper - defeat your foes

Hideaway Live to fight another day
Hideaway Live to fight another day

If you do not want to die
You should never have been born
If you do not want to die
You should never have been born

Hideaway Live to fight another day
Hideaway Live to fight another day

Hideaway
Track Name: SLAP
What you got inside, I wanna see
Could be sweet or sour, set it free
Cant let the system get you down
All those queens and kings, they lose their crowns
You gotta show the world what your made of
Or they crush you up, right from above

You've got to...
Stand right up and
Slap 'em in the face
You've got to...
Stand right up and
Slap 'em in the face

No one speaks for you, so they say
Take all that you want, before it goes away
Nothing is for free, you pay the price
So if you want your cake, you take a slice
First come first serve, last ones to starve
Without the knife its your... Throat they carve

You've got to... You've got to...
Slap 'em in the face
You've got to... You've got to...
Slap 'em in the face

You can chase the dragon, live in dreams
Life still sneaks right in, thru the seams
You can burrow in, close the blinds
Alone in the dark losing your mind
You can run away, fight the tide
No one comes looking, when you hide

You've got to...
Stand right up and
Slap 'em in the face
You've got to...
Stand right up and
Slap 'em in the face
