Track Name: Animal Eyes
VERSE 1
Tick tock the clock is on a runaway droning in the fade
times up and no there's not a remedy (no there's not a remedy)
Under the reddest moon black magic brews
and your wicked lies try to keep my blind
or so you thought, but all you've done is burn the beast and now it's you that he sees

CHORUS
Now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene my appetite is alive

VERSE 2
The shadows moving under summer moon
the wolf is out to play
and savage things happen in the fade
(don't take your chances now the wolf is on a killing spree)
My paper world you thought you burned has come awake in flames the fuse is blown but maybe I should let it go
but when I think about the f**king sh*t you pull with me I'd rather make you pay

CHORUS
And now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene
my appetite is alive (you crossed the line for the last time) I got the Animal Eyes
and now you better believe
I'm gonna eat you alive

BRIDGE
The hunger is growing
and fever is starting to breathe shoulda learned when you were young some choices come with a fee
And now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene
I think I'm coming alive

CHORUS
Track Name: Ketamine
Verse I
My friends all say I’m insane
I think I might agree
I can’t explain
What you do to me
Cause you’re all I want
But none of what I need

Verse II
My heart is beating my brain
You set the veins aflame
A perfect dose
With a pinch of pain
And complete the craze
With your wicked ways

Chorus
(oh) I need another taste of your Ketamine
(oh) A quick shot to the wave of a heart line

Verse III
I guess I like the abuse
You make me feel alive
So go ahead
Come and kill the hours
Cull restraint
And let the fever flower

Verse IV
Howling at the night like a fiend for your fantasy
Breaking at the seams when I’m left home all alone
I don’t really care if it’s fake or reality
If it’s only fiction I don’t really wanna know

Chorus

Bridge
You make it ok to lose my control
Drink from your fountain and let it all go
Maybe I’m crazy or maybe I’m sane
Don’t really matter when you’re calling my name

A cheeky little monkey came to me
Promised a pack of sun and some philosophy said
You need it, believe it, so come on and play
The fear that you’re feeling, I’ll stir it away
You make it ok to lose my control
Drink from your fountain and let it all go
Maybe your crazy or maybe your sane
Don’t really matter when you’re calling my name

Chorus
Track Name: Fireline
Verse I
I’m trying to learn how to breathe underwater
Cool the coals and lay to rest this mystery
I wish that I could walk from the fire
And let the fears I’ve found just slip into the reeds

Pre-chorus
Just tell me what to do to leave

Chorus
I can’t take this anymore
I don’t want you and your war
Cause I’m fighting to move on
Beyond ashes to blank shores

Verse II
I’m trying to learn how to breathe underwater
Slake the burn and bid the ghost to set me free
My head is spinning in lines I can’t believe,
I want to find a world I’ve never known
So drown my bones and let me be,
I don’t want to feel this anymore

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Bridge
Why does it linger when the past is already done?
Unwillingly climbing the walls
Why did the feeling come but now it’s gone?
How can I move on?

Chorus
Track Name: Talking
VERSE I
I find myself in corridors
A paper maze of points in time,
each end begins another
My history books they never lie
But what’s the use
When it’s a heart you use for eyes

CHORUS
Hello, hello
I miss your face, the longer we go
Hello, hello
Don’t run away, you’re all I know (why)
Hello, hello
Don’t jump the gun, and say that we’re done
Hello, hello
Is this the day, we say goodbye?

VERSE II
I wrote my story, wrote it well
A fiction only in my mind,
the truth was quite another
So let’s go dancing at the start
Forget the page
Where you burned down all the lines
Track Name: Animal Eyes (Clean)
Tick tock the clock is on a runaway droning in the fade
times up and no there's not a remedy (no there's not a remedy)
Under the reddest moon black magic brews
and your wicked lies try to keep my blind
or so you thought, but all you've done is burn the beast and now it's you that he sees

CHORUS
Now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene my appetite is alive

VERSE 2
The shadows moving under summer moon
the wolf is out to play
and savage things happen in the fade
(don't take your chances now the wolf is on a killing spree)
My paper world you thought you burned has come awake in flames the fuse is blown but maybe I should let it go
but when I think about the f**king sh*t you pull with me I'd rather make you pay

CHORUS
And now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene
my appetite is alive (you crossed the line for the last time) I got the Animal Eyes
and now you better believe
I'm gonna eat you alive

BRIDGE
The hunger is growing
and fever is starting to breathe shoulda learned when you were young some choices come with a fee
And now my Animal Eyes
they're seeing blood in the scene
I think I'm coming alive

CHORUS
