Track Name: Encased Unknown
Tried to think but I’ve lost my mind
Down a drink now I’m calm inside
On my way and I’ve been around
I’m insane my mind’s far from sound

Encased Unknown
Unveil the stone
Are we alone high up on this throne
Encased Unknown

Set a trap and I tried to see
Let it snap but it’s holding me
I can feel that I’ve been restrained
Like the world now we’re both contained

Like a stone I have been displayed
Often shown to enclose this grave
Safely be in this timeless safe
Safe for me in my guarded place
Track Name: Burn Me Alive
I bled from wild roses
But I don’t really notice
How could I ever focus
When I’m on trial

My grave is laid before me
The fire burning heavy
I pray, “God, be forgiving”
A little while

So Burn Me Alive
‘Cause you don’t know me
Burn Me Alive
Like you’re all-knowing
B-b-b-burn, b-b-b-burn
Burn Me Alive
B-b-b-burn, b-b-b-burn
Burn Me Alive

The hunt is weighing on us
And standards change for “righteous”
Can I rely on my gut
To keep me sound

These times are so outrageous
Throughout these Middle Ages
So cast me in cruel pagans
I’d rather drown

You feel my ashes falling
I hear the Lord, He’s calling
And I’m no longer crawling
In dirt, in shame

So at the end of this rope
Untie these threads from my throat
I’ll suffocate without hope
Without a name
Track Name: Wait For You
I could sink to the bottom
‘Cause it feels alright
On this “River of Love”
Underneath moonlight

I would shoot for the stars
But I’d fall so short
And I’d fall so hard
And I’m just so sore

I will Wait For You, I will Wait For You
But I don’t know why I do

I could give into games
Like I’ve done before
Oh but nobody wins
If we don’t keep score

I should go for the gold
But I’ll miss my shot
And I’ll miss the goal
But I just can’t stop

I will Wait For You, I will Wait For You
I will Wait For You, I will Wait For You
But I don’t know why I do

Is there really any reason or rhyme
Is there any indication why I’m
So beyond repair and ready to die
Is there any other way than, “Why? Why? Why?”
So why..!?
Track Name: You Ain't There
I could check in every tavern
But they hide you in the dark
Of this world I call a cavern
It encloses you, my heart

I can visit every steeple
I could wish on David’s Star
And these congregated people
Won’t know where the hell you are

I’ve been all the way around
And I checked the lost and found
But You Ain’t There, You Ain’t There
I’ve been all the over the globe
But I just can’t let it go
It ain’t fair, You Ain’t There

I could look down just a walkway
At some point you’d disappear
Like the portrait on my wall hangs
You would vanish too, my dear

I could get down on the pavement,
In my tears I’d take a bow
Like I’m here for entertainment
As I beg, “Wherefore Art Thou”

If I’m open on the outside
Then my inside sets ablaze
And I feel like I’ve run out of time
But can I dismiss this phase
Track Name: Lock & Load
Well while I trim some fabric
In the labyrinth of this suit I sew,
You can’t help but realize
I’m a feline chasing you, my doe

And don’t you dare slow down
Before I crown or else I’ll piss and moan
So I’ll make the capture
Prep the platter now you’ll call your home

When I Lock and Load on this sunken ship
Feel the undertow feel my fingertips
When I Lock and Load, when I Lock and Load
Sink your teeth into these lips

And now I’ve got you in me
I can’t shimmy down this totem pole
I’ve been a long time coming
Flat-line humming shares the common tone

And don’t you dare slow down
Before I crown or else I’ll piss and moan
So I’ll make the capture
Prep the platter now you’ll call your home

When I Lock and Load on this sunken ship
Feel the undertow feel my fingertips
When I Lock and Load, when I Lock and Load
Hold tight onto these hips
