Track Name: Strange Ghosts
(Instrumental)
Track Name: A Different Heav'n
Banished from paradise
Cast into a lake of fire
My vengeful wrath will soon transpire

I can see a flaw in your creation, dear god
No man can withstand the powers of temptation

I’m the serpent slithering nearby
Wrapping my body around trees that feed
The hungry
The poor
The wild
The blind
The Adams
The Eves
The saints
The sinners
The hunger in everyone

“The mind is its own place,
and in itselt can make a heav’n of hell,
a hell of heav’n”
Track Name: Bloom
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Wanderers And Their Shadows
Oh no, it's not love
Unless we're both in it, darling
And though you’re alone tonight
I can’t be the person to always fill your void when he's gone
We both know it’s temporary
So trade your deceitful guilt for the convenience in words that Wilde uttered,
“Those who are
faithless know the
pleasures of love;
it is the faithful that know love’s tragedies”

It was a cold summer night
When we first traded playful glances
And with our drinks in hand
All our inhibitions slipped right off us
And we fucked all night long
While our adulterous shadows
Defiled the purity of your bedroom walls

After the fervor of the night
With the thrill your body incites
I feel indifferent at your sight
Our shadows gone in morning light

Darling, I can’t be the one to
Always fill your void when he’s not around
I know it’s not fair
But darling, I will never love you the way you need me to
No, I will never love you
So please just go
Track Name: Stone Castles
Throne made of gold,
Diamonds, and pearls
No king lives forever

Weaponry, armor,
Mighty stone castle
No king lives forever

Royal rivals threaten
With tongues of rancor
No king lives forever

They’re hungry for power
Thirsty for war
No king lives forever

Your kingdom, their target
Missiles soon will soar
No king lives forever

Forced into battle
You reach for your sword
No king lives forever

You lead your men
Into the battlefront
(The front),
Through ground that will soon be
Covered in blood
(Your blood)

You lead your men
Into the battlefront
(The front),
Through ground that will soon be
Covered in blood
(Your blood)

They fire first
Bullet through your heart
Their hearts
You lay helpless on enemy ground,
Unsound

They fire first
Bullet through your heart
Their hearts
You lay lifeless on enemy ground,
Uncrowned

Sleep soundly now, wretched king
They tricked you into battle
No king, no king lives forever
