Track Name: Bridge
Never you once complained
or tried it on for the fame
the knots in my chest the pain
burn bright though your memory fades

And it could be me but I'll never know
you hide in places that I can't go
you count down like the minutes to the grave
And apologies I'm beginning to see
I drive you places we've already been just to
waste time like a child in a game

Your violent contours again..
stop now through the light I see your breath
girl you're on and off like I've never seen
the nights as dark as its ever been

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Free?
And I've been dreaming so long not a hold anymore, with how it's gonna be.
And I won't ever back down from your taunts and their force, until I see you more clearly.
And when the time comes round to give up on my loan, I hope it comes easy.
Cause when it rains on down on my bones all alone, I'l be free.
Track Name: Milk & Honey
My my my, what a beautiful war.
From the outside inconspicuous.
And this old timer's gonna' walk.
If ever you want, again.

Oh even in your own mind, I'l be on the front line, in another one of your wasted towns.
Crawling on the dark side, in your gold mine cause you wouldn't have it anyhow.
X2

My my my, what a beautiful war.
You're living like its 1984.
And it wouldn't be fair, wouldn't be fair
for me to stand this close to nothing.
And ricochet my love even on a tight rope.

[Chorus]

Even if you won't go, I'l be on a tightrope, cause time is running so slow.
Even if you won't go, I'l be on a tightrope, I feel it now I'm alone, cause time is running so slow.

[Chorus]
Track Name: Slave
You tease me from a cloud.
I'm buried too deep.
Then I'm tumbling out,
fleeing the scene.
If I was impatient,
the I would explore.
Then I'd fall in softly.
But instead I ignore.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again

What happened anyway?
I thought you would be so proud.
But it's fleeting me now can't get the words out my mouth, its a tyranny I can't describe.
It triggers a warning: the moon at your feet.
Succumb to my calling, alone and in need.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again

And I know you'll be haunted,
and your eyes will be glazed.
Spill the poison I've been dreaming of
let your mind decay.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again
Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
I will be your slave
Track Name: Wait For Me
In time you hope to fight and deliver, in your eyes I saw.
Denied it's on my mind as a shiver,
but inside I roar.
And I only wanna know
what is underneath it all.
Cause I'm finding it hard to obtain.
If its only me and you,
then all those things we wanna do,
are driving me all but insane.

Oh no, I'll find a way,
as time flows, ego decays.
Wait for me my soul is inclined to be more when I'm here at the start.

Given the time I want,
given the time I need,
oh given the time I want,
I'll turn a new leaf,
I will just wait for me.

By the minute I sow
a little bit of praise,
don't you underestimate
you know its not too late.
Cause there's a long long time to go,
and I'm afraid.
Don't want to twist the arm of fate,
I will in time though you just wait.
X2

And now I only wanna be there
and now I only wanna feel it
I was born to deliver love
and so I must comunicate
X2
