Track Name: The Mansion on Beffle Avenue
The woman in red you see
She's changing the way I'm based upon
Up on this ledge, you'll see
The world he's granted us

But how can I show you?
What cravings should be born
Out of this place where the ceiling is torn?

See up, I feel insanely addictive
Crippled down below I run

Reset

Defiled, I find there's a way out

She wore red as she floated away
I can still see the bloodshed between us
She'll choose you

Envy

Defiled, I leave this place
Defiled, I will leave this place
Defiled, God please let me leave this place

The clowns exchange a pattern of dance and have a laugh
The patterns turn into a proper burial they don't attend

Down in the sleep he flies to God and never weeps of anything
He deserves this everything he earned it all
Because for you and you
and all you did he bears a scar and carries it as he flies

Higher

Why can't you hear me?
Why can't you bear me?
Listen to me I needed more!
I can't change anything
It's not in my soul
It's what he's telling me
Closer, calmer, takes us to the sea
The mansion on the beach
Find me there
Track Name: Drunken Sailor
What'll we do with a drunken sailor?
What'll we do with a drunken sailor?
What'll we do with a drunken sailor
Early in the morning?

Put him in the longboat 'til he's sober
Put him in the longboat 'til he's sober
Put him in the longboat 'til he's sober
Early in the morning

Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Early in the morning

Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Early in the morning

Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Early in the morning

Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Way hey and up she rises
Early in the morning
Track Name: Sirenum Scopuli
Beyond the Cyclops' tomb
Where the ship keeps sailing on
So many souls have been lost
What lies near
Fills me with fear
But it's a song I long to hear

I can't believe this
No one should hear this
Cut off their hearing
No one shall hear them sing

You won't believe this
Come on and hear this
Cut off my binds now
Leave us to die here alone

The saddest thing here:
How many will drown here?
The beauty you falsely pour through our throats
Ten-thousand dead men in their boats
I can't believe what you're doing to me
I'll do it to you
Track Name: Funhaus
Walk the mirrored corridor
Take a peek inside yourself
You have no idea whats in store
For you and no one else

Darkening visions jaunt about
To haunt your dreams and your thoughts as well
A terror you can't live without
That drives your mind to Hell

Walk the mirrored corridor
While pale whitened skin pervades the glass
The blood red shoes tap on the floor
As yellow smiles pass

The clowns sway forth with knives in hand
Watch from afar with building fear
Impale the ones with which they stand
Must get away from here

Walk the mirrored corridor
Drag lengthy feet across the ground
A red, round nose sounds a horn
To confuse and to astound

Amongst the beasts that roam the hall
Unnerved as to your newest fate
The creatures beg you, one and all
To join the harlequinade

The clowns in the mirrors are merely a vision
The wounds, though so many, are all self-inflicted
The funhouse has driven the jester insane
No way to escape, except to kill the brain
Track Name: ‽
The feeling grips my heart
Grabs my stomach, holds it taut
It tears my lungs apart
With each intoxicating thought

I am not experienced
I'm still not far from birth
What do i call these feelings
She has managed to unearth?

If more affection is required
For it to be called love
I'll spend another day with you
And have more than enough
Track Name: (I'm Not) Winton
Right hand to the sun
Both eyes fixed upon the holy one
The one who will bring light
To a nation trapped in darkest night

And how we adore

The fire will burn across the land
All because of this man!
The land will know
The world will know
Of his wrath

Spirits of the dead
Living corpses fight for daily bread
Denied their primal need
The crows alone will surely fight

And how you adored

The fire has burned across the land
All because of this man
The land has known
The world has known
Of his wrath

Charred republic stands
Testament to a monster's hands
The fires that we burned...
Our place in Hell is surely earned!
