As dark as it gets for me. So not that dark, really. All things considered. All part of my evil plan, naturally... ;)

Track Name: Love Born Dead
LOVE BORN DEAD
--------------------------
I want you to know that I see through your show
Self-inflicted wounds are all you’ve ever known
And I won’t let you leave a mark on my heart
‘Cos that's how it starts
 
Cold dead air blows through your mind
No-one cares, but lately I find
I don’t give a damn what you think of me
I don’t give a fuck what’s been said
I no longer pine for your company
For truly our love was born dead
 
I want them to know that I lived through your show
And know for sure the damage done is yours and yours alone
For I won’t let this be the bolt on my heart
Because that's how it starts
 
Cold blank stares escape from your eyes
No-one dares to question your lies
I don’t give a damn what they think of me
I don’t give a fuck what’s been said
I no longer offer you empathy
For inside you’re already dead
 
You’re already dead
 
Cold dead air blows through your mind
No-one cares, but lately I find
I don’t give a damn what you think of me
I don’t give a fuck what’s been said
I no longer pine for your company
For truly our love was born dead
 
Cold blank stares escape from your eyes
No-one dares to question your lies
I don’t give a damn what they think of me
I don’t give a fuck what’s been said
I no longer offer you empathy
For to me now you’re already dead
 
And inside you’ll always be dead
Truly our love was born dead

Born dead

But inside I’ll never be

Track Name: Severance (acoustic version)
SEVERANCE
------------------
If you want to walk away, go
But if you want to make me pay, grow up
For never will I thank you for the love you never gave to me
And never will I trust you if you go with make believe
Each time it invites you

If you want to speak the truth, call in
But if you need to see the proof, go within
‘It’s better to forgive them for the love they never gave’, you say
But your soul is in the doorway singing:
‘I just want to stay destroyed and in turmoil’

Tell me something I don’t already know
I know you want to believe
They take you somewhere you don’t want to go
You just don’t want to say goodbye
I tell you nothing you don’t already know
They tell you what to believe
It gets you nowhere going with the flow
I just don’t want to see you cry
Why...?

If you want to walk my way, come
‘Cos I would love to bring this day some hope
For it’s better to have loved than let the tyrants and disease take hold
They had you running down the stairway singing: ‘I don’t want to be involved.’
When you were…

You don’t get nowhere going with the flow
You just get washed out to sea
You end up frozen, lost and all alone
I just don’t want to feel you die

Tell me something I don’t already know
I know you’re made to believe
They take you somewhere you don’t want to go
You just don’t want to say goodbye
I tell you nothing you don’t already know
They tell you what to believe
It gets you nowhere going with the flow
I just don’t want to see you cry
Why...?

Track Name: Lunacy Inc. (acoustic version)
LUNACY INC.
--------------------
It’s a life less rational
So we put everything on show
They don’t see us at all
Yet they eye us as if they know
 
Honestly - why would you strive to be
The enemy of a peaceful clan?
Endlessly making them out to be
Incendiary - like the flames you fan…
Seriously - everyone else just sees
Insanity getting out of hand
Honestly, it don’t do anything for you now
 
A herd mentality
Shows you the way so you go along
To absurd realities
Known to be cold, inhumane and wrong
 
Honestly - why would you seek to be
The enemy of a peaceful man?
Endlessly making him out to be
Some anomaly with an evil plan…
Seriously - everyone here can see
Your insanity getting out of hand
Honestly, it don’t do anything for you now
 
Your mindless clinging on
Shows that we still have a way to go
‘Keep calm and carry on’
No - someone has to stem the flow
 
Honestly - why would you want to be
Security in a locked up town?
Endlessly making a deity of conformity
You’re the wrong way round…
Seriously - it’s easy enough to see
How this lunacy brings the whole world down
Honestly, it don’t do anything for us now
 
It don’t do anything for us now (x3)
 
And it don’t do anything for you now
