01. Sirenum Scopuli

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
All our world is drawn to sleep
They know not where you keep your siren song
All your burdens lost at sea
A song to set you free
To draw the poison out
The pain becomes a choice...


02. React

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
Carried a spell
And I bound it well
I tethered it to the bone
She came to me twice
But she fell through the ice
I watched as she sank like a stone
Well, I got a rope and it's running out...

She never cried, she never could
She didn't lie, you misunderstood
I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
And as she sank into the blue
That's when I knew what I had to do
Oh

'Cause I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
I react - react
But I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
I react - react - react
Oh

I gave her my heart
And she tore it apart
Buried it when she was done
I said to myself
Well, you've still got your health
The blood lust had only begun

And I'm not gonna give up this heart attack

She's crying out beneath the ice
She needs another willing sacrifice
But I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
I followed down into the blue
I thought I knew what I had to do
Oh

'Cause I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
I react - react
I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
React (react)- react (react)- react
Oh

Out from under your overdose
How many years was I comatose?
How many days gone by?
Looking for light in your empty eyes
All the same 'cause you won't remember my name

Carried a spell and I bound it well
Tethered it to the bone
Well, she called on me twice
So I broke through the ice
I caught her and I brought her back home
Oh

'Cause I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
I react (react)- react (react)
Not gonna give up this heart attack
React (react)- react
Oh (Not gonna give up this heart attack)
(We give it all) React (react) - react (react)
But I'm not gonna give up this heart attack
React - react - react
Oh
React - react - react


03. Sparrow

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
A spoken word assumes the shape
Of histories to come
And the question raised is a shadow on the run
And so you lower your voice
And you make your choice
And then you whisper, "There could be no other way"
And for the very first time in a very long time
I can believe the words you say
Oh

But I'm not your enemy
And I hope you know
I sit and stare into your hollow eyes
And away we go
And I want you to know...

I'm not gonna blame you
For the beginning of the end
I've been reading the sign waves
Have been all my life
'Cause we know the difference
Between the worlds the eye begins to wander
How...

But your eyes are as cold
As empty caves
In unmarked graves
You know I wish that there could be some other way
And for the very first time in a very long time
You can believe the words I say

Well, I'm not your enemy
And I hope you know
I see the hunger in your hollow eyes
And I watch it grow
Caught in the flow
Of your blood's undertow

No, I'm not gonna blame you
For the beginning of the end
I've been reading the sign waves
Have been all my life
'Cause we know the difference
Between the worlds the eye begins to wander
How...

I'm not gonna blame you
For the beginning of the end
I've been reading the sign waves
Have been all my life (I have been all my life)
'Cause we know the difference
Between the worlds the eye begins to wander
(Wonder how...)

(I've been all my life)
Spoke to your ghost in a dream so real
Like a photograph for the way
That I feel to wonder (how) how
It's time to take your chemical
Close your eyes
And the twilight pulls you under


04. High Times

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
I'm gonna leave the ground
I wanna be unbound
Look and it's a long way down
Drifting away
I'm gonna wave goodbye
I'm gonna rise so high
A shadow in a sunset sky
Shrinking away

Yet another nine to five
Is there anybody left alive?
What's the point of choosing sides?
When you know what the mirror hides
Try to take the higher ground
But the poles are shifting upside down
Like a shadow in a sunset sky
Shrinking away

But who will save you?

(High times) and we let it show
(High times) and you never know
High times giving it all away

They drew a chem-trail cross
Upon the noon day sun
Still they'll try to hide the other side
'Til the chains have come undone
I try to take the higher ground
But the poles are shifting upside down
Like a shadow in a sunset sky
Shrinking away

Who's gonna save you?

(High times) but you get your fix
(High times) when the light plays tricks
High times, you're giving it all away
Dearly beloved high times
(High times) better take your pills
(High times) but the kindness kills
(High times) when you're giving it all away
Ooh, but the future came today

(Tell me, who will save you from yourself?)
Or will it all go down in flames?
(But if it's not you, then no one else)
You're the only one to blame
(Only you can save you from yourself)
But from a bird's eye view
Concealed in silent skies
(Only you will ever break through
To where the daylight never dies)
Hope is on the rise

Well, we were worlds apart
But for the chemical embrace
And in the aftermath of circumstances
Staring me in the face, oh

(High times) when you can't let go
(High times) baby, you should've known
(High times) when you're giving it all away
(High times) when the tremor stills
(High times) when the kindness kills
(High times) when you're giving it all away
High times, oh
Dearly beloved high times, oh
Dearly beloved, hope you survive
These high times

Is there anybody left alive?
(High times) Oh, the kindness kills
(High times) (Don't) don't let the kindness kill
(High times) Oh no, don't let the kindness kill


05. Numbers

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
And by the stars above
I can tell your name
You've returned
Though the bridge was burned
And you brought the flame
And by their lies you rise
Smile upon their cues
Once you get what you came for
You go and you drop the ruse

You look down on me
Tell me what you see
Numbers on a screen
Don't you dare deny
Time to do or die
There's no in between

And now the justice blind
The papers signed
And in the end
You defend by pretending
The kill was kind
Murder in your eyes
Smile upon your face
And by the stars we can tell
That you are an amazing disgrace

Looking down on me
All your eyes can see
Only dollar green
I looked up instead
All I saw was red
It's time we intervene

You look down on me
Tell me what you see
Numbers on a screen
Looking back at you
I can see right through
You're not what you seem
Looking down on me
All that you can see
Is that dollar green
I looked up instead
All I saw was red
It's time we intervene

Oh


06. One With The Sun

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
Born into the chase
Will you recognize my face?
Like a ghost above her grave
Well, your eyes are cold as caves
All the crazy people
Forgot to take their pill
Started with the sequel
So we knew who you would kill
You may fire at will

My love, could you be really there?
But I thought that I caught you
(Creeping) creeping under the weeping willows
(So) so sorry to say now you're gone away

But you better run
Darkness must soon become
One with the sun
You're rising high
You pierce the sky
(Don't) don't go, don't go...
Don't go, don't go...
Don't go, don't go...

Future's come and gone
Still the past keeps holding strong
But my time has come today
Looking back upon the bed where I lay
All the crazy people
Are gathered on the hill
Sharpening the steeple
For the blood they're going to spill
But they are what they kill

My love, (could you) could you be really there?
But I thought (I know) that I'd lost you
(Sleeping) sleeping under the winded willows
(So) so happy to say now we're back to stay

But you better run
Darkness must soon become
One with the sun
You're rising high
You pierce the sky
But you better run, whoah
Darkness must soon become
One with the sun
You're rising high
You pierce the sky
(Don't) don't go, don't go...
Don't go, don't go...
Don't go, don't go…

Oh
My love, your love
It's time tables turned in Babylon
My life, your life
The stars combined are rising
(My love burning bright)
My love, your love
My love burning bright
My love, your love
My love, your love
Love, oh
Well, it's burning bright


07. The Ghost You Gave To Me

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
Tidal controls
Warping the poles
Quaking
Drawn back the blanket of faith
To the muscle of soul
Brightness unfolds
Breaking
The Lion is stirring awake

By the blood and the bone
I should've known
By the chemical scars in your eyes
For the time slowed to still
And in for the kill
And on to dissolve your disguise

Emanating epicenter
Brutal waves
Born to vapors clung
Last gasp escapes your lung
Universe
Is on the tip of your bitter tongue

(Oh) I want to thank you for
The ghost you gave to me
(Oh) No longer I'm
Alone in my
Invisibility

Just an empty armor in the dark

Raising spires to the sky
Drawn to the sun
But your feet have been
Screwed to the floor
For the poison on your lips
As I watch your eyes eclipse
And the vapor escapes out the door

Emanating echo fading
It's a tricky trail to follow
Choosing red over choosing blue
It's a bitter pill to swallow

(Oh) I want to thank you for
The ghost you gave to me
(Oh) And for the secret things
That no one else can see
(Oh) I want to thank you for
The ghost you gave to me
(Oh) No longer I'm
Alone in my
Invisibility

A secret chamber in your heart
An empty armor
For the tidal controls
Warping the poles
Quaking
Drawn back the blanket of faith
To the muscle of soul
Brightness unfolds
Breaking
The Lion is stirring to wake

(Oh) I want to thank you for
The ghost you gave to me
(Oh) And for the secret things
That no one else can see (No one else can see, oh)
(Oh) I want to thank you for
The ghost you gave to me
(Thank you for the ghost)
(Oh) Alone in my
Invisibility

A secret chamber in your heart
An empty armor
In the dark


08. Pretty

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
Hello, my friend
We meet again
We got what we wanted
But it's not what we need
Real life is stranger
Than the fictions we read
So we say we're better off alone
Better off alone, better off alone

I got a message saying
"Don't bother to call us back
You're all alone
You may never come back home
Who could accomplish that?
We know it won't be pretty
Well, high times in a photograph
Alive inside
You can find a way back home
Leave it alone at that
You know it won't
You know it won't be pretty...
Pretty..."

Hello, my friend
We make pretend
When we say we're better off alone
Better off alone, better off alone

Another message plays
"Don't bother to call us back
You're all alone
You can never go back home
Who could accomplish that?
We know it won't be pretty
Well, high times in a photograph
Alive inside
You can find a way back home
Leave it alone at that
We know...
We know it won't be pretty...
Pretty..."

Say we're better off alone
Better off alone, better off alone

"Hey, don't bother to call us back
You're all alone
You may never go back home
Who could accomplish that?
We know it won't be pretty, hey
High times in a photograph
Your eyes are blind
But you see me with your soul
Leave it alone at that
You know it won't...
You know it won't
Don't bother to call us back
You're all alone
You may never go back home
Who could accomplish that?
We know it won't be pretty, hey
High times in a photograph
Your life's inside
You can find a way back home
Can you imagine that?
You know it won't...
You know it won't be pretty...
Pretty…"


09. Afterglow

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
We were on the floor below
Just before the afterglow
Waiting for the tides to rise
And chase the day, yeah
And what I'll never forget
Bars in the windows of your eyes
You put yourself behind
Swallow the key
And hope they never find

Now you're screaming "fire"
But you burn your own bridge down
When enough's enough
No one hears a sound
How does it feel?
How do you tell which one is real?

'Cause your name is my name
And our game is played the same
One of you to turn the screw
And one to take the blame, whoah
'Cause my blood is your blood
And our blood they can't contain, oh
One of us to turn to dust
And one to chase the flame
Oh, how does it feel?
Can you tell which one is real?

There is no dividing line
In between what's yours and mine
Please don't be surprised to find
That you are so bright
You know my eyes go blind
We were breathing fire
No one could break us down
And from the worlds above
We could hear the sound
How does it feel
Now that you know that I'm for real?

'Cause your name is my name
And our game is played the same
One of you to turn the screw
And one to take the blame, whoah
'Cause my blood is your blood
And our blood they can't contain, oh
One of us to turn to dust
And one to chase the flame
Whoah, how does it feel?
Can you tell which one is real?

Head on the floor
And I could not tell you why
Open the door
To a cold wind blowing by
And like the light I'm gonna
Disappear me out of here
Vapor in the atmosphere
Lost your ghost in the gold of the sun
Now you're not the only one, no
How does it feel?
Can you tell which one is real?

Your name is my name
And our game is played the same
One of you to turn the screw
And one to take the blame
My love is what they can't contain
One of us to turn to dust
One to take
One to take the blame
One of us to turn to dust
One to chase
One to chase the flame, oh
Our blood they'll never contain
One of you to turn the screw
And one to place
One to place the blame
How does it feel?
Can you tell which one is real?


10. It's Alive

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
Painted away the sun
For the picture I'd become
Color the sound of thunder in the distance
A lonely sky
Ghosts were giving chase
And the brush revealed your face
And then I mixed the pigments up
With venom and I'm a lonely god
Who can't explain
Colliding characters
But from a bird's eye point of view
Well, all the world is
Green and gold and grey to blue

Brightness falling from the ashes crawling

It's alive... It's alive... It's alive...
Oh, it's alive...

Painted a rising sun
And the clouds did come undone
Artificial thunder (artificial thunder) in the distance
The sirens cry
Here to take my place
With a mirror for a face
Last leg of the feedback loop
For devils and gods to even odds
And break away

Brightness falling from the ashes crawling

It's alive... It's alive... It's alive...
Oh, it's alive...

Here we go 'round the bend
Through the orbit once again
From a fate that we cannot defend
This little boy
Renews the promise of a man
For the future is ours to command

I'm dreaming on borrowed time
And I don't want to wake
Can't tell if I'm falling or I'm flying
Another leap of faith
Say goodbye and the sun goes down
Watch you turn the bend
But I remember the world is round
You'll be back again
I stoke the fire in a statue's heart
Nobody notices
The eyes of a ghost
In a haunted work of art
Watch it come alive
It's alive... It's alive... It's alive...


11. Only Child

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
In the war you severed the cord
You broke the line
You turned an only child
But just before you buried the blade
Your eyes betrayed
The spark of another one
Pure at heart
Another day our daily bread
Another night of the living dead
It's like an ocean upon you
So you did what you did
And you said what you said
Put your pen to the page
And a gun to your head
Got it all worked out this time

Oh, but you can't be sure they're dead
Still the footsteps fall
In an empty hall
The voices echo in your head

And through the ashes raining down
Your eyes replied
They told a sordid tale
And when the fires
Barreled down the mountain side
I saw your senses fail
So I painted a word
In the dust where I bled
Signed the seal of the living dead
I'm looking down and upon you
So you did what you did
And you said what you said
Put your pen to the page
And a gun to your head
Got it all worked out this time

Oh, but you can't be sure they're dead
Still the footsteps fall
In an empty hall
The voices echo in your head

Oh, but you can't be sure they're dead

Now I close my eyes
As the daylight dies
And I drift away

What a perfect ghost
You are a record skipping
On a needle's eye
In a dark refrain
Singing, "Nobody knows who you are"
Mirror mask with the empty eyes
In a devil's rain

Footsteps in an empty hall
Shadows crawl across the wall
You can't be sure they're dead

And if I go before your time
Don't let 'em close your mind
Don't watch the flowers fall
Never looking back at all
(But if I should change before your eyes)
Don't be fooled by my disguise
(You were born of my demise)
And I'm a willing sacrifice
Should you wake before you die
Don't let a day go by
Don't believe a word they say
I'll be back again one day

You never know
Fallen or in flight
Wind moans
Deep in the dark of night
And by the blue moon light
At the angle when it hits me right
You can see the choice
Here beneath my skin
Bright bones
Barely keeping the beast within
Prick of a pin
Let the shift of my shape begin
But the barrier is thin

I hear the beating of angel wings
Somewhere a siren sings
You severed your puppet strings
And now the justice is blind tonight
It's hard to see wrong from right
When you're looking through
The tunnel of a target site

What a perfect ghost
You are a record skipping
On a needle's eye
In a dark refrain
Singing, "Nobody knows who you are"
Mirror mask with the empty eyes
In a devil's rain


12. The Barrier

Music by 3
Lyrics by Joey Eppard
I don't know your name
Did I dream you tonight?
Did I draw the heavens down?
Drape my arms around
An angel in flight?
Looking like you love me still
As you kill me goodbye
As you're parachuting to the ground
Watching me go down
Abandoned in flight
You left me to die

Somehow the chiming of shadows
Reminds me of you
The haunted and hollow
The light passing through
The sound of your sorrow
On the echoes of blue
Down a wind water tunnel
Like the turn of a screw
Doing all that you can do
To be the wall I'm walking through

Whispers in the dark
Can I steal you tonight?
And from the wreckage piled high
We'll climb back to the sky
Leap from the ledge
For the faith we can fly

So come on...
Reanimate angel
Break from your cage
Witness the prophecy
Sprung from the page
The moon in your marrow
The smoke on your skin
The mask in the mirror
The monster within
But the barrier is thin
And the room begins to spin

Don't you know that
The war has blown over?
We weathered the storm
The grass has grown over
The graves that we mourn
Now the brightness is teeming
The chains slip away
The wolf in the wool
Is no longer at bay
The portal is open
The walls disappear
Jump through the hoop
And the hell out of here
A song in a box
On wheels we have blown
Glides on the back
Of a snake made of stone
Through shadows unfolding
And clouds fallen slack
At the edge of tomorrow
And no turning back
Reanimate angel
Break from your cage
Witness the prophecy
Sprung from the page
The moon in your marrow
The smoke on your skin
The mask in the mirror
The master within
Oh but I've seen your sorrow
At the edge of the screen
Soften the focus and into a dream
But the barrier is thin
And the room begins to spin
The barrier is thin
And the room begins to spin
The moon in your marrow
The smoke on your skin
The portal is open
And the kingdom is within
