Track Name: Setting Sail
The spiral waits my dear friend,
Just wait a while,
Sit right here and I will begin to tell you,
All the glories that rest their sails behind the storm,
Horizon waits with open arms for your arrival,

Setting sail into the dark and choppy ocean,
Let this homeward journey mitigate your burning ego,

But still the architect builds his broken home with chocolate icing,
A broken home a broken family beneath the rubble,
Nurse the bullet wound at your ear,
News that kills you,
Take this example and head on home,
Before we all pine away,

Setting sail into the dark and choppy ocean,
Let this homeward journey mitigate your burning ego,
Setting sail into the dark and choppy ocean,
Let this homeward journey mitigate your burning ego,

Setting sail into the dark and choppy ocean,
Let this homeward journey mitigate your burning ego,
Track Name: Boy
A child is born in november,
A streak of light in his eye,
His father left him before birth,
His mothers living a lie,
A silent childhood to forget,
The loveless one left behind,
Designing love all his own way,
The architect can unwind,

How much did they tell you?
How much did they tell you boy?
How much have they-?

A lover coiled into absence,
Callous, sore and hollowed,
A shell to fill with dead past lives,
Dead home made on his own,

How much did they tell you?
How much did they tell you boy?
How much have they-?

Looking in the waves,
I don't wanna stay,
Track Name: Electronic Voice Phenomenon
Sitting here in this light,
I'm dying to tell you,
You were right,
It's been so long since I heard your voice,
Then I heard you through the noise,

Sitting here in this light,
I'm dying to tell you,
You were right,
It's been so long it is a shame,
Was is you or am I insane?

Headlong,
Each song I sing tonight,
Out of the dark I heard your voice,

It's been so long it is a shame,
Was it you or am I insane?
Electronic voice phenomenon,
The ringing in my ears goes on and on,

Headlong,
Each song I sing tonight,
Out of the dark I heard your voice,

The architect is out of sight,
Strayed so far from the light,
The violator of this land,
A drop of blood falls on the sand,
As I walk beyond the lines,
For whatever I could find,
He sees me from afar and runs,
And once again he has won,
Track Name: Architect
I. HAPPY HERE (PHASE ONE)

I am at my home I am not alone,
Nothing moves though nothing even makes a sound,
I tied you up just so I can hear,
The contestant making another round,
A piece of pie goes down that makes my day,
It's a shame about all the god damn mess you made,
Broken glass broken hands it's all you're own fault,
It's your own fault that I had to use the spade,
How nice of me to let you watch TV,
And you said I didn't love you Oh! How wrong!
This is the good bit wont you please stop crying,
If you're making noise we wont hear the song,

Why do they wonder why we don't go out,
We're happy here we're a happy pair,
And they think I'm mad,
And they think I'm mad,
Why do they always have to stare?

II. DEATH BY SILENCE

This stuff never really happens,

Why is it that we should undergo a tragedy or a disaster in order to see our vices?

Peaceful evolution, not violent revolution, is the key to the light and life,

Was that nothing I saw from the clouds?
I'm sure it just passed me by,

Do you echo what I feel?
This is my last chance to ask,
A last chance of forever with this,
With you is bliss,

Temptation and spectres,
The story of my life,
All of time in a box,
Overcome by demons,

If it's the thought that counts then I count myself done,
For if all is not lost, then all I have is echoes and ghosts,
A terrifying noise that bleeds into silence,
And the choking bla-, blackness of my mind,

We will burn in the midnight sun,
Suffocated in our own homeward heatwave,
And divide until all that is left is broken reflections and embers,

I'm wasting life looking for flaws in something perfect,
So it doesn't have to be too good to be true,

If I dropped the torch I built and the lost light scattered on the midnight dust,
What would we see?

What is love without emotion?
What is emotion without art?
Art is love,
Love is truth,
Art is truth,
And it is the love of art that saves us from ourselves,
Because love will prevail when all else is gone,

Death by silence,
What a way to go,

III. HOLY WAR

IV. NO SALVATION FOR THE DAMNED

The architect wrote a love poem on a piece of paper, but when he had finished his masterpiece, the wind blew it out of his hands. Now there is nothing.

The architect went home that night to a cold and empty bed, he wondered for a while if it had been worth it - the spilling of innocent blood. yes, he thought, and went to sleep.

He had spent his life a ruiner, a feeder on all dark things, a mitigator of the light.

How atrophied and decayed a flesh so rotten already! Can the mentally dead be killed? Is there salvation for he who is already damned? But before any of this could be answered, the architect had dreamed a dream in his sleep. In this dream, he was his fragile victim. He was scared, but he did it again next week.

V. HAPPY HERE (PHASE TWO)

Why do they wonder why we don't go out,
We're happy here we're a happy pair,
And they think I'm mad,
And they think I'm mad,
Why do they always have to stare?
Track Name: Heatwave
A million questions sometimes can't get answered,
A story best left untold,
A broken heart a broken home is what it took,
To let the coil unfold,
Swept away by hostile demons and their ways,
Maybe one day they'll see,
Bloody hands in dusty window panes,
Lost a love,
Earned an enemy,

Homeward heatwave,
Dried up by the sun,
Homeward heatwave,
Dividing what was one,

Swept away by hostile demons and their ways,
Maybe one day they'll see,
A bloody hand in dusty window panes,
Lost a love,
Earned an enemy,

Homeward heatwave,
Dried up by the sun,
Homeward heatwave,
Dividing what was one,
Homeward heatwave,
Dried up by the sun,
Homeward heatwave,
Dividing what was one,
One hand on a gun,
One hand on a gun,
Track Name: Boy (Acoustic Version)
A child is born in november,
A streak of light in his eye,
His father left him before birth,
His mothers living a lie,
A silent childhood to forget,
The loveless one left behind,
Designing love all his own way,
The architect can unwind,

How much did they tell you?
How much did they tell you boy?
How much have they-?

A lover coiled into absence,
Callous, sore and hollowed,
A shell to fill with dead past lives,
Dead home made on his own,

How much did they tell you?
How much did they tell you boy?
How much have they-?

Looking in the waves,
I don't wanna stay,
