Track Name: Monuments
black cats walk down my block
i'm dead, alone if not
funeral home on the corner
close my eyes, cross the street
baby, i'm a goner!

or i'm a dreamer
or i've seen her
or i can't trust my eyes
or what's real or
this is sigil to my good intents
this is the beginning
this is the end

i'm no one, nowhere, never was
i am a monument to what is to come
i'm no one nowhere, never was

black cats walk down my block
i'm dead, alone if not
this is a sigil to my good intents
this is the beginning
this is the end

i'm no one, nowhere, never was
i am a monument to what is to come
i'm no one nowhere, never was

i'm no one, nowhere, never was
i am a monument to everything that ever was
i'm no one nowhere, never was

i'm no one nowhere, never was
i'm no one nowhere, never was
Track Name: Purgatory
I look up at the ceiling, it stays the same
That's the thing with cycles: things never change
Now in ev'ry heaven & hell, i plead my case
Kicked back to purgatory and there is no escape

And we'll dance dance dance dance dance upon our graves
And they'll scream scream scream scream scream our names
As we claw claw claw claw at the pearly gates
'cause there's no no no no no, there's no escape

I just wanted to know that everything i've been told
Is a lie i tell myself because old is all i get
And age is steeped in regret, stronger how long it gets
I'm a forgotten 'C' an option most heavenly

And we'll dance dance dance dance dance upon our graves
And they'll scream scream scream scream scream our names
As we claw claw claw claw at the pearly gates
'cause there's no no no no no, there's no escape
Track Name: E is for Extinction
In a dream,
I’m always standing on an edge
I’m always hanging by a thread
I’m always…I’m always….

Cut, new scene
and you’re laying in my bed
you’re saying, what if this is all there is
I’m always…I’m always….

Some old tragedy
Some new byzantine

Here we go
oh but I don’t know how to read a map
And you’re laughing at all of my failed attempts
I’m always…I’m always….

In the throes
Of the whole world breaking down around me
The windows and doors are left crumbling
I’m always…I’m always….

Some old tragedy
Some new byzantine

Take my hand and go with me
I’m don’t know where but I’ve gotta feeling
The gifts of the gods are cruel indeed
But we’ve gotta keep on living, we’re

Some old tragedy
Some new byzantine
Track Name: Gauntlet
oh i first met Death when we kissed
i'd give up all infinity for those lips
thinking 'oh my god, i'm gonna die alone'
stare straight ahead but nobody's home
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
you don't got me to stay, you don't got me to...

i'm not quick to blame
i'm not holding back
said i didn't know what i wanted
head for the middle of black
i wanna leave a scar
i wanna leave you mad
darlin' i'm a heart attack

oh i next met Death when we missed
eternity's a small price for this
singing 'oh my god, i'm dying alone'
stare straight at the sun but nobody's home
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
and i'm walking away, you don't got me to stay
you don't got me to stay, you don't got me to...

and they're chasing ghosts
and i'm bleeding rats
i wanna keep what i know
and have you feel that time has passed
i wanna leave a scar
i wanna leave you mad
darlin' i'm a heart attack
Track Name: No Navigator
What’s a want
What’s a need
What’s the speed that we’re sleeping?
do you even remember when you couldn’t close your eyes without dreaming?
You used to love her brother
but those days are gone now.
Her kiss is getting closer, giving in to get along’s the only way you know how.
CHORUS
North west east south
Wondering what its all about
Left right up down
Giving up in a ghost town
pass through in out
North west east south
Left right up down
Falling in love with a breakdown

I'm not me
I'm serene
Felt the need to bleed without thinking
Do you even remember when you couldn't close your eyes without dreaming?
Gave my heart over to lovers who don't care for breathing
The needle's getting closer
Death's the only way I'll be able to live now

North west east south
Wondering what its all about
Left right up down
Giving up in a ghost town
pass through in out
North west east south
Left right up down
Falling in love with a breakdown
