Track Name: We Never Sleep
LYRICS:
You are the venom & I'm the bite
Let's trade our poison so we can pretend we're alright
Cause everything around me is falling apart
I'll be dead by dawn. You'll turn to dust in my arms

There's too many ghosts inside our brains
Too many face, places, kisses in the rain
Come on death and bring me daylight
Because we both know no one ever really sleeps at night

We Never Sleep, Sleep. We Never Sleep
Before the sun

There's always one person or thing that tears us apart
And in the end we can't help but think of them when it's dark.

We Never Sleep
We Never Sleep, Sleep
Track Name: Night Owls
LYRICS:
We are young. Full moon love.
From the tree. You had me.

We are the night. We're creatures of flight.
But I never thought you'd leave this ache on me.

We fell young. Feathered strange love.
There were vows. We were night owls.

We owned the night. We dared daylight and there was nothing to break our hold.
Then daylight came and you faded away. And now I'm alone where sleep won't go.
Where sleep won't go.

We died young. Undead love.
But you turned me bloodthirsty.

We owned the night. We burned daylight and there was no one to break our hold.
Then daylight came and they took you away and now I'm alone where sleep won't go.
Where sleep won't go.
Track Name: My Moon. My Grave.
Lyrics:
it doesn't matter who you are in the dark
it's the teeth that pull at your heart
it's the bend of my soul when we're apart
but it's the truth not told; her real mark

my blood in her arms well you are my moon, my grave baby
there's blood on her arms but you are my moon, my grave baby

my chest burns at twilight
my blood's alive by midnight

it's doesn't matter where you are in the dark
it's the light that survives in your heart

this is that
real love, that dark love, that black blood that turns you on
that real love, that dark love, that black blood goes on
Track Name: This is How a King Dies .I.
Lyrics:
On the end of days
when hearts fall on blades
I saw how people turn
against their king, against their word.
Now send this message to the Queen.
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
Faith slips away.
Our kingdom decays.
My castle burns, the Queen is gone, there's no return
and now they've come for me.
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
I'd give anything for a kiss.
Help an exiled prince.
The dark age has begun. They've silenced me, they cut my tongue.
But you can't silence this...
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
Track Name: This is How a King Dies .II.
Lyrics:
On the end of days
when hearts fall on blades
I saw how people turn
against their king, against their word.
Now send this message to the Queen.
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
Faith slips away.
Our kingdom decays.
My castle burns, the Queen is gone, there's no return
and now they've come for me.
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
I'd give anything for a kiss.
Help an exiled prince.
The dark age has begun. They've silenced me, they cut my tongue.
But you can't silence this...
Nothing is alright.
Save me by daylight.
But forget where your heart lies
and that's how a king dies.
Track Name: Dorm Room Ghost
LYRICS:
Sweet sugar slayed. My dead heart breaks. The cold finds me
I put on my leather jacket and I'll get on with the show
But I'm a dorm room romantic and I feel a ghost in this cold
A dorm room ghost

I don't want to sleep this off.
Novocaine and NOVA frost
These shadows will follow me to the end

I don't want to sleep this off
Stone graves and quarry walls
Winter break, my escape

Sweet sugar slayed. My dead teeth ache. The cold bites me
I put on my leather jacket and I'll pretend there's some snow
Cause I'm a northern romantic and I'm haunted by the cold.

A dorm room ghost
Dorm room, dorm room ghost
I'd rather stay up then sleep this off
Track Name: Like Golden Blood
LYRICS:
I felt the sadness on her kiss
The dry blood, dead love, dead girl that hung from my lips
I still remember the taste of her tears
The sting, the ring, the tonic of a thousand years.
Like golden blood

I saw the color drain from her eyes
Felt the weight, the shape of her body melt into mine
My teeth are stained with all her fears
The tomb, the doom, the burn of eighteen years
Like golden Blood

By dawn she'll be a ghost on the beach
By death she's forever a part of me
Like golden blood

One song to save a soul
