01. Beauty And The Freak

I'm letting go
One thing is for certain I'm treading paths
I've walked before
I've reconsidered and I'm contemplating letting go
I watched resentment steal into your
Face like a thief (a thief)
And the more you pull the more I push you away from me
And I'm letting go
I'm trying
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside) I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
Domination. Segregation. Infiltration.
This life is mine and I'll be dead before you take it
I try to fly but an invisible blade cuts me
I hear that sound just before I hit the ground
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside)
I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
I know it's hard I admit I'm scared
this just how it has to be (has to be)
The hurt will fade your heart remade
Eventually we'll regret these days
You're no stranger but you're strange to me (these days)
Now when loneliness won't leave you alone (these days)
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside)
I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
Skin deep
Skin deep
Skin deep
My dead sense can't tell right from wrong
That's why my words only inflicted pain on you
I've picked the lock of a door I never wanted to go through
I'm turning back
I'm letting go


02. Revolution, Baby

Get the fuck up and do something
Inspire the crowd
To set it off and make a difference
Lock and load
And then I tattoo on my skin the names and faces
I have seen.
So when I die there'll be memories left of my life.

Have you ever thought that

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system revolution

Always count on getting nothing
When you are on your own
But when we walk these streets together
They are paved with gold
And so I take the ink again and add your legend
To my list 'cause when I die
I want you to be on me

With this energy take the system down

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system revolution

And it all came to life when
I thought outside the lines and it all came to
life when i thought outside the lines

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system revolution
[3x]

Revolution [x4] [Rich screams in background]

It's getting harder to stand
And further to fall
But if you take My hand
We can take on the world


03. Turn It Up

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?

Your body's swaying from side to side.
I wanna catch you when you fall,
But then you'll learn nothing at all.
Still I'm ready to run,
But you're so damn drunk
An atomic bomb couldn't wake up you.

What's that you hear, bass and lights from the club?
I don't think so.
I'm by your side and all I can hear.
Is that your mom's starting to cry, screaming,
"Help me, help me, help me!"

The way that she looks.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken and she'll never be saved.
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
Dead.
Dead.

You're selling your soul for whiskey and coke.
And you're a suicide for tequila and lime.
And I gotta admit, when I first saw you.
Hit the dancefloor with your grind,
You sent me outta my mind.

But after watching you crawl in the door
That it is getting old and sold and I told
I don't know
But you're screaming, "I don't care! I don't care!"
Care.
Care.
Care.

The way that she looks.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken and she'll never be saved.
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken and she'll never be saved.
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

(The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
The way she died,
The way she said,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.)

Dead.
Dead.
Halfway dead.
Dead.
Dead.
Halfway dead.

When I see you lately,
I'm wondering on
White roses, caskets,
Your name on a stone.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken and she'll never be saved.
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken and she'll never be saved.
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

(The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
The way she died,
The way she said,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.)


04. My Own Life

My father said to load that gun,
And keep the devil from the door,
Don't be tempted by the words he says,

I found a way to break the cycle,
Initiated something vital,
But to the ocean, it was only rain.

So rain on me (rain on me)
So rain on me (rain on me)

Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quicker now, I better think twice,
Start a new life.

Fate is kicking down the door,
But I don't live there anymore,
Destiny, it needs your advice.
I'm starting a new life.

What you gonna do when you've taken my breath away,
Maybe die young isn't all it's meant to be,
Until then I could just rewind,
My life back to the beginning,
Pause, press forward, that's too easy,
Push stop the moment I can see the smoke.

Then rain on me (rain on me)
Then rain on me (rain on me)

Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quicker now, I better think twice,
Start a new life.

Fate is kicking down the door,
But I don't live there anymore,
Destiny, it needs your advice.
I'm starting a new life.

My own life, it's my own life

Bombs are going off in my mind,
Take a deep look in my eyes,
What you see, do I seem fine?
I'll start anew.

Fate is knocking at the door,
But I don't live there anymore.
Destiny, it needs some advice,
What shall I do?

I'm starting a new life,

Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quickly now, I better think twice,
Start a new life

Fate is kicking down the door,
But I don't live there anymore.
Destiny, it took your advice.
I've started the new life

It's my own life, it's my own life
I've started the new life
It's my own life, It's my own life
I've started the new life.


05. Burn This City

Music by Roger & Robin Sjunnesson
Lyrics by Nathan J. Biggs & Richard Sjunnesson
Are we alive?
Because I heard a rumor
That the day we died was yesterday
So are we rotting now?
Can't find our graves?

Well they created a lie
Built out of structure and routine by robots
But this night we're taking the virus to them

Burn this city to let them know we're here
Burn this city to reinstall the fear
Now i see the turning point is
Right before my eyes
Still they find another way to put a different gun to our heads
And so i take a breath there's plenty time to sleep when im dead
Is this the only way its never gonna be?
Right before my eyes

...Don't wanna think about the end
When this ride is just getting started
Roads uncharted
Or is this end of the line? (Line!)
I'm not giving lessons
Lessons how stars are forged
I just keep my finger on the trigger
And blow 'em away one by one
So can we all scream? (Yeah!)
Loud enough to awaken
The zombies of society
Who control these times

Burn this city to let them know we're here
Burn this city to reinstall the fear
Now i see the turning point is
Right before my eyes
Still they find another way to put a different gun to our heads
And so i take a breath there's plenty time to sleep when im dead
Is this the only way its never gonna be?
Right before my eyes

And I still want to see the light (see the light)
Shining in front of my eyes

Running's easy
Where will we go - Who knows?
Don t look back as long as I've got you we ll make it


Burn this city to let them know we're here
Burn this city to reinstall the fear
Now i see the turning point is
Right before my eyes
Still they find another way to put a different gun to our heads
And so i take a breath there's plenty time to sleep when im dead
Is this the only way its never gonna be?
Right before my eyes


06. Black And Blue

Why did you want me to be there?
Yesterday you changed my destiny.
Controlled by the moon.
If I would have known, I would have been there
For you, my baby, for you.

[Chorus:]
Black and blue, I bled for you.
Still better tell me what to do.
It's a dedication with a human heart.
You dragged me down for one last time,
We'll I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
But after sunrise, I'll turn to stone.

My proposition is unconditional
And it ends tonight.
Need a body to explore.
I tried to keep my cool but your frozen skin is
Magnetic to me.
Hold on.

[Chorus:]
Black and blue, I bled for you.
Still better tell me what to do.
It's a dedication with a human heart.
You dragged me down for one last time,
We'll I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
But after sunrise, I'll turn to stone.

Yeah, yeah.

And now, I'm caught in a web,
Visions in my head.
Truth is calling me, I'm searching for myself.
And now, I'm caught in a web,
Visions in my head.
Truth is calling me, I'm searching for myself.
Let go.

[Chorus:]
Black and blue, I bled for you.
Still better tell me what to do.
It's a dedication with a human heart.
You dragged me down for one last time,
We'll I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
But after sunrise, I'll turn to stone.

Black and blue, I bled for you.
Still better tell me what to do.
It's a dedication with a human heart.
You dragged me down for one last time,
We'll I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
But after sunrise, I'll turn to stone.
But after sunrise...
But after sunrise...


07. Miles Apart

An honest crescendo
And by your words that rise like stars.
That moment, I knew
That I would bind myself to you.
For calling, the demons,
They can't wait to deny the truth.
But they'll have to wait.
I'm anxious 'cause right now I am loving you.

[Chorus:]
There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

Heart.

Your memory, it warms my soul.
So when I die, I won't be cold.
Put here on earth, I got something to prove,
And why love a lie if I got nothing to lose.
So I take my chance and I make my move.
I fought my evils, scaled the wall
And backed the right horse, broke the rules.
I'm risking everything I've got
Just to get a shot with you.

[Chorus:]
There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

Heart.

I died inside when you were taken,
And then I died some more.
The daylight hurts my eyes
'Cause I'm a stranger to the sun.
Some parts of me are gone forever,
But the rest of me lives on.

[Chorus:]
There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.


08. Plans Are For People

It's not enough
(It's not enough)
To be yourself,
(To be yourself)
You have to be your best self.
From the point of view
There is no kingdom,
There's no kingdom in the clouds.
You keep preaching the words you receive,
Receive from the maker.
But what if God is not the sender?

So what's it like to be put to sleep
Because it keeps the sun imploding.
The same old story,
No way to find me
Every time that you want me.

[Chorus:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
It's good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.

Every day I searched
(Every day I searched)
Your face for clues,
(Your face for clues,)
Looking for a window
To strike into you mind.
When the chips are down,

...
And that your heart is any stronger

So what's it like to be put to sleep
Because it keeps the sun imploding.
The same old story,
No way to find me
Every time that you want me.

[Chorus:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
It's good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.

As I walk the surface of the sun,
It makes me feel alive,
Alive again.

[Chorus:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
It's good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.

I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
It's good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.


09. Leave Me Alone

My dreams are always the same.
It flickers in my brain
Over and over again.
What is it I got
That triggers you to follow me day and night?
I can smell your scent all around.

I don't know what your demons are telling you,
But it ain't me you're looking for.

[Chorus:]
Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
And toss me aside.
And why,
(Why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

I slept with the enemy.
They stole all that I've got.
Faint, my lust has been out of control.

I don't know what your demons are telling you,
But it ain't me you're looking for.

[Chorus:]
Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
And toss me aside.
And why,
(Why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
And toss me aside.
And why,
(Why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

And I'm locked in the yesterdays
Of your cellular memories.
But I'm cutting you out of the film to the floor.
Little by little as I walk out the door,
And you're gone.

[Chorus:]
Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
And toss me aside.
And why,
(Why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
And toss me aside.
And why,
(Why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

Stay out of my way.


10. Break Of Day

The earth is large
Large enough that you think you can hide from anything
From fate, from God, from pain
As long as you get far enough away
So you run (run) to the edge of the earth
Where all is safe again and just for a moment
You think you managed to escape
You could never be more wrong

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

We think we are
We are agents of our own destiny
In charge of when we rise or fall
Capable of determining our own fate
Couldn't be, no we couldn't be more wrong
Cause you don't choose your destiny
Your destiny it chooses you
You cannot escape your fate

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

First you show me
You show me that I cannot be harmed
By any weapon or blade they try to use on me
Then you cut me
You cut me deeper than
Than any
You cut me deeper than any sword could have done

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

I turn deep into my soul to find the strength
To stand against my fears
There's nothing imprisoned in the looking glass
I learnt to understand the silver only echoes what
I think into it
Don't need to wait for the break of day


11. We Rule The Night

My home is no longer a place where refuge can be found
"You dug far too deep..."
What I stumbled upon
"Was not for your eyes to see"
I'm always on the run 'cause something's after me
Cold shivers working its way down my very spine
I'm far away from home
I'm far from all I know
"You can't run from me"
My heart gives me away
And there's no place left to hide
"You will accept Caine's curse"
Pay the price for your ignorance
Discard all your mortal feelings

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

My body degrades organs failing
Your blood runs like liquid fire in my veins
"The masquerade unveils, share my burden child"
Kill them all and then let god separate them
Their pain shall be legendary

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

As my body dies tonight
I see clearly who pulls the strings
We broke our oath
Used the forgotten keys of this world just too
Eclipse the sun for you
Black out the sun
We buried it as deep as we could
It wasn't deep enough
We buried it as deep as we could
But it wasn't deep enough

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

We rule the night, We rule the night


12. Dead And Gone

Music by Roger & Robin Sjunnesson
Lyrics by Nathan J. Biggs & Richard Sjunnesson
There is no shelter just the body god gave us
And all we can do is to hope that that's enough
Well I know the rules, always did, they are written indside of my eyelids
It's an imperfect world we live in, but it's the only world we have
The less we get the more we want in this throwaway society
Fading to the point of no return, we're at a crossroad
Just follow the compass of your heart
Until we all get torched
Get torched by the undying sun

[Chorus:]
When we're dead and gone when our mistakes been done
A celestial corpse will carry on
And it will illustrate how we undermined our own existence
When we're dead and gone and our mistakes been done
Let's all just face the facts
No matter how we bend or break it
We make the ultimate sacrifice

Out of all our human-crafted artifacts
The longest lasting will be our redesigned atmosphere
Now how does that make you fee that we're beyond repair?
We sealed our fate in this slow-motion suicide
The less we get the more we want
In this throwaway society
Fading to the point of no return
We're at a crossroads
Just follow the compass of your heart
Until we all get torched
Get torched by the undying sun

[Chorus:]
When we're dead and gone when our mistakes been done
A celestial corpse will carry on
And it will illustrate how we undermined our own existence
When we're dead and gone and our mistakes been done
Let's all just face the facts
No matter how we bend or break it
We make the ultimate sacrifice

What we set in motion must play itself out
So we can hand the earth over in better shape than we accepted it

[Chorus:]
When we're dead and gone when our mistakes been done
A celestial corpse will carry on
And it will illustrate how we undermined our own existence
When we're dead and gone and our mistakes been done
Let's all just face the facts
No matter how we bend or break it
We make the ultimate sacrifice

When we're dead and gone when our mistakes been done
A celestial corpse will carry on
And it will illustrate how we undermined our own existence
When we're dead and gone


13. Perfect Alibi

Music by Roger & Robin Sjunnesson
Lyrics by Nathan J. Biggs & Richard Sjunnesson
Are you listening?
Are you really there?
I'm open to suggestions
Do you even care?
Because within I die the more and more we lie
Hope seems to grow outside our reality of life
There's a fragile part of me that needs some help to heal
Hold a candlelight for me and don't let it go out

Whispering those words you like
We're lying here side by side
Secrets dont say stay secret for long
we'll write the perfect alibi
and tell them all how we tried
but in the end they'll find out anyway
so let's make an honest mistake


Tell me do you ever admit to it being more than just a dream
Even you, the road that lead me here
For you, the one who it clear
For you I've been struck down
And built back up pound by pound
For you I would if I could
But there's nothing left to do except keep...
(Secrets don't stay secret for long)


Whispering those words you like
We're lying here side by side
Secrets dont say stay secret for long
we'll write the perfect alibi
and tell them all how we tried
but in the end they'll find out anyway
so let's make an honest mistake

Are you listening?
Are you really there?
