Track Name: My War
Well you called the shots for the last time
'cause no I'm can't just sit idly when you put the red line
across us and you're giving us a faith full of filth
and now I can't breathe

Over and out, how I can I win now
when this is your war
and I am outnumbered S.O.S
over and out, how can I win now
cause this is our war, and I've got an “x” on my back

(Close your eyes) I'm counting to ten
could this make it easier?
Twist the knife, I guess i'm not what you wanted me
to be but i stand in front of you broken now
Cause you can't be wrong and I know
I can't wake up from this, I can't back down from this
but you will see, that even as you run your mouth
can't take away all my thoughts all the fight in me.

Well you called my bluff for the last time
Cause no I won't let you get away with that shit
your lies have cut us and severed all
the ties we bound this is ending now

Over and out, how I can I win now
when this is your war
and I am outnumbered S.O.S
over and out, how can I win now
cause this is our war,
I'm blindfolded, I can't fight back.

(Close your eyes) I'm counting to ten
could this make it easier?
Twist the knife, I guess i'm not what you wanted me
to be but i stand in front of you broken now
Cause you can't be wrong and I know
I can't wake up from this, I can't back down from this
but you will see, that even as you run your mouth
can't take away all my thoughts all the fight in me.

So point your finger, I know you will.
Cause it’s easier.
It's so easy to blame me...
So point your fingers, I know you will
Cause this is my war.
Track Name: The Skeleton
I am the skeleton trapped in your closet
and all of my innocence has become irrelevant
I am the skeleton

I am the cobwebs lodged in your empty head
A reoccurring dream breads your insecurity
I am the cobwebs

Chorus:
Am I making a scene?
Is this embarrassing?
Am I making a scene
Is this embarrassing to you?

This isn't easy.
This isn't easy for me.

Excuses, excuses. You never had to do this.
You knew it, you knew it all along.
I'm picture perfect, pixilated, blurred and bleeding colors.
Tired and desperate.

Look at what's become of me.
I've been collecting dust for company
and I'll need no introduction, if I ever make it out at all.
I've been waiting and withering
For you to have some sympathy
For you to change your mind
You won't change your mind
Track Name: The Darkside
Fate can be so condescending;
Never asking what you want,
But knowing the whole time.

But I won't go without an explanation.
I'd rather take my chances on the tightrope,
Roll the dice.

And I've got nothing left to lose
But you look like the change I need.
You've got a way with words
That have a way of getting to me.
I'm folding maps to get you here by my side,
I'm the last thing you need,
But I swear, you'll be fine.

Ohhhh... Welcome to the dark side.
Hold on tight.
Ohhhh... In no time,
Watch out, I'm gonna make you mine...

I'm spitting fire and you're next on my list,
I've got a hunger for destruction and your name on my lips.

You can run,
But baby, you can't hide.
I've got my finger on the trigger,
And your face on my mind.

And I've got nothing left to save
And you seem like a great idea.
I've got the knack to know the perfect time to disappear.
I never claimed to be the thing that you need,
But I'm here in the flesh,
And I'm anxious to see.

Ohhhh... Welcome to the dark side.
Hold on tight.
Ohhhh... In no time,
Watch out, I'm gonna make you mine...
Ohhhh...

I've got you where I want you,
I've got you in my plan,
I've got you tangled up in me,
I've got you in my hands.

I'm rounding your rough edges,
I'll cut you down to size,
I'll be your heaven sent, my lamb.
I'll be your last goodnight.

Ohhhh... Welcome to the dark side.
Hold on tight.
Ohhhh... In no time,
Watch out, I'm gonna make you mine...
Ohhhh... Watch out, I'm gonna make you mine... Ohhhh...
Track Name: Aim / Fire
You’re stuck in a hole
You can’t get out of, I know
The feeling
Time’s not on your side

Never to know
You’re reasons, why you’re so cold
I’m feeling
Like you’re someone I don’t know

And no, i can’t be wasted
On your subtleties
Say like it is, hell I can take it
But don’t expect my sympathies

You’re stuck in a hole
You can’t get out of I know
The feeling
Time’s not on your side

Never to know
You’re reasons, why you’re so cold
I’m feeling
Like you’re someone I don’t know

And no you can't be shaken
Like the October breeze
The colors fade to darkness
There’s no one left here to please

So tell me why don't you give in?
You're so deep nobody wins.
It's time for you to choose, but I can't do that for you.
It's not that hard to see,
it's all black and white to me…
But if you're getting tired, just load the barrel,
aim and fire.

You're left all alone
but can't keep quiet with all
your demons
and I can't go to sleep

Cause I cant afford
to lose you to your little goal
and so I'll wait to say, "I told you so."

And no you can't be trusted
to make much sense to me
Oh, make a promos, I'll break it...
You're difficult to read.

Once upon a time, I dreamed a man who wanted more
crept up beside my pillowcase and said, "What are you doing this for?"
(If I knew that it would cause you pain,
I wouldn't hesitate to let you throw it all away)
Track Name: The Ghost
Oooo, oooo...
Oh, what a pity -- change is the only thing constant in my life.
I tried to tie you down, but you won't stay.
Who's takin' chances now on things you buried long ago?
But you don't know...

That I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll face you like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can.

God save the messenger when I find out
That you've sunk your teeth into the night and let your sunshine down.
Dreams go up in flames, and my hopes hang in the gallows.
My song that used to sound so sweet cries out a murder of crows.

And I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll take it like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can
Live a lie,
Live a lie,
Live a lie.

Oh, I would never call
To say I told you so.
What you are to me --
The ghost of who I was,
The ghost you're meant to be.

There's blood on the moon tonight and smoke high in the sky --
The kind that used to make me close my eyes.
What started as the truth became a good old fashioned lie.
I'm back against the wall,
You're back to throwing knives.

And I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll face you like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can
Live a lie,
Live a lie.
Oh yeah you live a lie.

Oh, I would never call
To say I told you so.
What you are to me --
The ghost of who I was,
The ghost you're meant to be.

Oooo, oooo.
Track Name: The Villian
Midnight's been chasin' after me
and she'll beg to break the secrets I swore I'd always keep
and we both know that she's not givin' up, at least not easily.

I've been a troubled soul for weeks
with blisters on my hands, and bruises on my knees.
I'd let her know I've had enough
If I could only breathe

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became

Midnight's been lullin' me to sleep
and the devil's singin' to me hidin' underneath the sheets.
I've been running out of luck, and she will have her way with me.

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became

So it goes (or I've been told) we're growin' old and wise
I'll run away for heaven's sake, lest hell finds me tonight

The only time I've ever felt alive is when i'm playin' dead (X2)

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became
