1 – Pact
2 – These Days
3 – Saviour (acoustic)

You know everything about me
For you have long shadowed my steps
You have seen me at my very weakest
You have stayed at your best
Take me now, I’m just a shallow thrill
But give me time, I’ll be so much more


Pick me up!
Drive me where e’er you will
Just understand
This is my choice
I choose to drape myself before you
I give you leave to break our pact
Take me now
It will be meaningful
But give me time
I’ll be so much more

.

Follow me! We move to different drums
And now you see, wonder comes
I have caused your strength to be your downfall
I have crawled so you rise
Take me now, I’ll conquer all around you
And given time, I’ll be your everything

Strip away my sullied flesh
All that’s left is bones
Nothing more
Just bones

Do with me as you are wont
I will wait outside
Nothing here
Just bones

.These Days

These days
I need a little help to sleep
Does that make me weak?

These days
I’m getting more like me
Even less like you, even more like me

These days
Are getting less and less clear
Even more surreal, even less sincere

Strip away my sullied flesh
All that’s left is bones
Nothing more
Just bones

Do with me as you are wont
I will wait outside
Nothing here
Just bones

Saviour.

So you say you know me
From when I drew breath
And let my first cries
Shake this mad world
Until I meet my death ?

And nothing comes between us
Will nothing bring me harm?
Can you vouchsafe solace
Beneath your ghostly arm?

.

Sometimes I feel like crying when I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming, but I choke it down instead

You are not my saviour, I never learnt to trust
How can I put faith in your love when you fill me with this lust?

Sometimes I feel like crying when I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming, but I choke it down instead

I guess I’m alone now
As always before
Is there anything before me to light this world, this chore?

Sometimes I feel like crying when I’m lying in my bed
And sometimes I feel like screaming, but I choke it down instead
