Track Name: Werewolf
And so it begins
With the light of the night shining in
You barely know your own name
And you're ignorant to the shame

Tomorrow's game will be lost
Forfeit for no real cause
Because tonight I'm the night I'm the one
And I will do what I think that I want

It's true
It's not you
It's me

I want to be taken away
Whenever the daylight fades
I feel I could be anyone
Without fear of coming undone

I'm coming undone
Coming undone

I am not myself
I am not anyone else
What the night brings out in me
Is something that you'll never see

I'll hold this secret close to my heart
No-one need know what I've done
Because tonight I'm the night I'm the one
And I will do what I think that I want

On my own
I will go
And leave it all

I want to be taken away
Whenever the daylight fades
I feel I could be anyone
Without fear of coming undone

I want to be taken away
Whenever the daylight fades
I feel I could be anyone
Without fear of coming undone

I'm coming undone
Coming undone

What have I done?
What have I become?

What have I done?
Who have I become?
I've come undone
Track Name: Desire Disdain
In the morning
You get your fix from routine stalking
Fascinated, clutching needing
For the lives that your seeing

Hooked in to the crystal interface
Obsessive waste

Did you get what you wanted?
Did it serve you well?
Peer into the sphere of the new world
Become part of the sell

Didn't read the fine print today
Just ticked the box and signed your life away

Desire
Disdain

Come the fall of evening
Hate and resentment cloud your reasoning
Consumed with envy you’re grieving
The life that you’re not living

Watching through an all seeing eye
Seeing nothing at all

Did you get what you wanted?
Did it serve you well?
A shadow puppet in this crave new world
You are part of the sell

Trying to connect to forever today
The hollow screen is draining your life away

Desire
Disdain

Did you get what you wanted?
Did I serve you well?
Did you get what you needed from me?
Judging my cyber shell

Did we get what we wanted?
Did it serve us well?
Peer into the sphere of our new world
We are the product for sale

Thinking we’re safe in our crystal world
Our lives are sold and our secrets heard

Desire
Disdain
Track Name: Masterpiece
It's not what you're thinking
It never is
You don't know what I'm thinking
You never will

Masterpiece
The sum of its parts working in their place
Foundations, coming down
And you'll crash to the ground

Then how will you find me
When I'm not here
Would you want to find me
If I weren’t here

Foundations, coming down
And you crash to the ground
Foundations are removed now
And you'll never see me again

Masterpiece
The sum of its parts working in their place
Foundations are removed now
And you'll never see me again

Good-bye
Track Name: This Cage
Twilight pressures of
Mundane expectation
Midnight stressor of
Spiritual resignation

This cage of mine
Cannot be seen
This cage of mind
Won’t let me think freely
This cage of mine
Plans which seeds I sow
In this state of mind
I am not alone

Its social entrapment
Hidden in honesty
Its conflicting intentions of
Natures curiosity
What future lies out there
Working for modesty when
The harvest keeps turning over
Fuel for gluttony

This cage of mine
Cannot be seen
This cage of mind
Won’t let me think freely
This cage of mine
Plans which seeds I sow
In this state of mind
I am not alone

Break free

It can’t contain me
You won’t enslave me

This cage of mine
Cannot be seen
This cage of mind
Won’t let us think freely
This cage of mine
Plans which seeds we sow
In this state of mind
We am not alone

You’re not alone
Track Name: Elements
I see the passion
The fire in your eyes
I can hear the thunder
See lightning in the skies

Hells inferno
Ever burning
Blisters you inside

The icy gale
From the heavens
Kills you in the night

Desolate landscapes
The sun beats on your skin
Tropical humidity
Tears you from within

Hells inferno
Ever burning
Blisters you inside

The icy gale
From the heavens
Kills you in the night

You know it’s elemental
Our planets soul
Cosmic Emotion
Can you feel it?

Pure dehydration
Need water to survive
Euphoric drowning
With death I fantasise

Hells inferno
Ever burning
Blisters you inside

The icy gale
From the heavens
Kills you in the night

You know it’s elemental
Our planets soul
It’s cosmic Emotion
Can you feel it?
