Track Name: Ladies and Gentlemen (A Man Of Material Faith)
Ladies and Gentlemen

I'm losing faith,
With every passing day,
And all my hopes for this World,
Are rotting in decay,
To my left is a man,
Who's earned an easy grand,
By dealing death to the man on my right,
Look at the blood on his hands,

Slipping away
(Let death hear us sing)
I sold my soul today
(And I did not feel a thing)

So I guess I'm giving up,
(I'm giving up on you)
I've got a ticket to hell,
(And I don't intend to stop)
I didn't plan for this,
I don't know how I got here,
But I know that it's the end,

So I walk away,
From everything I know,
And all my friends and family,
Will watch as I implode,
To my left is my love,
Who's had about enough,
So I'll drag myself right to the edge,
And be cold to the touch,

Slipping away
(Let death hear us sing)
I sold my soul today
(And I did not feel a thing)

So I guess I'm giving up,
(I'm giving up on you)
I've got a ticket to hell,
(And I don't intend to stop)
I didn't plan for this,
I don't know how I got here,
But I know that it's the end,

Losing my grip,
Oh, what a thought,
Losing my grip,
And it's all that I've got
Track Name: Disguise Built On Lies
We take it as the truth,
'Cos people simply say it's true,
"Oh, it definitely happened,
Cos we seen it in the news",
But who provides the news,
Other than people like you and I,
They're both capable like us,
Of deceit and fucking lies,
So stand up and be counted,
And open your fucking eyes,
Don't put blind faith in power,
The devil in disguise,

I just can't see this changing,
Their goal is oh, so near,
They target their own people,
Who they paralyze with fear,

Who the Hell is telling you,
What is wrong from right,
And why do you accept it,
Without a fucking fight,
Blinded by false alibis,
The truth is out of sight,
And the truth like time and time again,
Will vanish in the night,
And the line becomes more blurred,
Between what's seen as wrong from right,
Don't put blind faith in power,
The devil in disguise,

I just can't see this changing,
Their goal is oh, so near,
They target their own people,
Who they paralyze with fear,

And when full blown war is here,
Then maybe we all will see,
That we shouldn't be led by others,
We shouldn't be told what to believe
Track Name: Van Gogh's Last Words
We live until we die,
We fight until we fade,
We breathe until our lungs collapse,
Until we are betrayed,

When I'm angry, cars collide,
Planes fall out the sky,
And boats capsize, all around me,
When I'm angry, stars burn out,
the sun will freeze and we'll all die,
Without a sound, or a whimper,
But when I'm happy, the sun will rise,
And I'll manage to live my life,
Without disguise, without anger,
'Cos when I'm happy, flowers bloom,
Clouds part and light will shine into the room,
And give it colour,

The sadness will last forever,
It'll always find it's way,
Happiness comes and goes,
But just like sunlight it always fades,
I fear that when this ends,
That the darkness will only stay,
The sadness will last forever,
So I'm ending it here today,

When I'm angry, people kill,
Fights rage, and blood will spill,
Against my will, onto the canvas,
When I'm angry, a cancer grows,
It never stops, it never slows,
Destroying souls, draining colour,
But when I'm happy, the curtains close,
The truth's disguised, and no one knows,
What really goes, between our demons,
'Cos when I'm happy, I have you,
Your guiding light, will keep me right,
And see me through, until it fades

The sadness will last forever,
It'll always find it's way,
Happiness comes and goes,
But just like sunlight it always fades,
I fear that when this ends,
That the darkness will only stay,
The sadness will last forever,
So I'm ending it here today,

(I can't hold on)
The truth was there in my eyes
(My hope is gone)
Fire in my heart never lies,
(I must hold on)
And as I pull the trigger tight,
(Lost for too long)
My blood will spill in the night
Track Name: Lonely Ghost
So pull the strings of my heart,
And pull them tight,
And watch my head light fires in the night,
Just fake a smile or flash those eyes,
But hold on tight,
'Cos I won't let you in without a fight,

Do you know, that I'm a mountain you won't scale?
Do you know, that I'm a mission you will fail?
The truth is, I'm on a yacht that has no sail,

Is ignorance really bliss?
No one told me,
'Cos I've reached the point and now I see,
The strings are cut and I've severed ties,
Set my heart free,
Cos ignorance is misery

Do you know, that I'm a mountain you won't scale?
Do you know, that I'm a mission you will fail?
The truth is, I'm on a yacht that has no sail,

(Can you hear me)
(Can you see me)

I know, innocence has been lost,
Can you see, ignorance has it's cost
