Track Name: King of the Night
i thought i could live in the light
but the day don't feel like the night
i watch your black shape move
oh the sun is never the moon

and this night is the coming
of what i hid within
i could be forever with you
take the road that leads me to
the bed sleeping next to you
my king of the night
the night is for me and you
king of the night
king of the night
king of the night

i wake to an empty room
i call to the silence for you
i'm queen 'til the morning comes
then you take the darkness and run

but this night is a warning
if you disappear again
you can take forever with you
i'm bleeding in the black for you
loving with my back to you
my king of the night
you're blind to what you put me through
king of the night
king of the night
king of the night

endless notions are never endless
and all great loves are just pretentious

this night is the coming
all those memories
they faded with the morning
divide the dream that led me to
chase the me i was with you
my king of the night
the night is gonna leave you too
king of the night
king of the night
king of the night
Track Name: Downfall
you came to me
broken, naivety
i took you in
i gave you everything
we could have been enough
but you couldn't choose
if you wanted to give into love
so i say to you...

who wants to hurt you, baby
like i do?
who wants the bitter ending
more than i do?
love weighs upon you
like nothing else can
so i'll be your downfall, baby
if you'll be my man

yeah, if you trust me
i can make it all go away
just touch me
and i will make you disappear

i tell you things
i know i shouldn't say
i keep you close
as i can to me
if i'm not the one you're with
then you're gonna lose
she'll never give into love
when she sees the real you

who wants to hurt you, baby
like i do?
who wants the bitter ending
more than i do?
love is a blind march
but i'll hold your hand
and i'll be your downfall, baby
if you'll be my man

yeah, if you touch me
i can make it all go away
just fuck me
and i will make you disappear

touch me
touch me
touch me
touch me
where you've been
you can never go home again
Track Name: Balance
we walk alone
to the car
down on Park
he drives me home
he's got a saint in his front pocket
and i don't know how to stop it
i want to wish you well
and say goodbye
but i just can't undo this
i need your help
'cause it's all too much
but you can see right through it

i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go

and you know my affection
is yours to deny
and i won't try
to fuck things up
'cause i know just how your hands are tied
i want to wish you well
and say goodbye
but i just cant go through this
i need your help
'cause it's all too much
and without you i can't do it

i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go

and in these hunter dreams i'm haunted by the prey
and when he's half-asleep i know he feels the same

i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go

i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go
i can't just let you go
Track Name: I am the Sun
my fire
is the mother
of the light inside of you
if i
ever burned you
it's because you asked me to

and the darkness comes to me
so i let him come
it rises from the sea
and i am the sun

there's a moment
when the mirror
lies down in front of you
you love her
and you kissed her
but your shadow only grew

and the darkness comes to me
so i let it come
your sea, it swallows me
though i am the sun

and momentum
builds like a breath
inside of me
i never
asked for more
than what you'd given me

so whatever you do
and wherever you run
you will always see your shadow
baby, i am the sun
i am the sun
oh baby, i am the sun
you can never get away
Track Name: The Only One
when the years of darkness found me
a strange hope, a strong heart
though my past has crashed around me
you were never one to fall apart

i could never seem to focus
on one word, one way
but the stars, they start to notice
and you're the one who stood right next to me

there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be the only one
there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be the only one

some just follow through the motions
they don't mean what they say
but love is like the swaying ocean
and you're the one that pulls the tide in me

there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be the only one
there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be the only one

there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be the only one
there'll never be another one like you
you'll always be my only one

you will always be my only one
you will always be my only one
you will always be my only one
you will always be my only one
Track Name: Lullaby
something's wrong
inside of me
it's chemical
and everything is changing
i worked so hard
walked the straightest line
was doing alright
but it got the best of me

they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?

they think they know
but they're not sure
will i be the same
the way i was before
close your eyes
and go to sleep
a lullaby
is the sound of a heartbeat

they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?

despite the scars
the broken heart
i'm still the same
can no one help me?
i only know one way to be
i can't go on
light a candle for me

they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
they wanna cut you, and cut you
and take it out of you
but is it gonna make you better?

i don't know if i will ever get better
i don't know if i will ever get better
i don't know if i will ever get better
i don't know if i will ever get better
Track Name: Discipline
you been feeling numb
and you wonder why
you been walking the day
but dreaming of the night
well, the shadows call
and i know my kind
i see what you cannot deny

you put 4 on the floor
and i'll break you in
you can crawl to the beat
of my discipline

bring the weight of the world
and i'll set you free
what you need isn't wrong
it was meant for me
so get down on your knees, baby
i got the key
what you want isn't wrong
it was meant for me

discipline
discipline
i'll give you some discipline

our love is a tangle
of red of black
if you know who you are
there's no turning back
are you satisfied if you're settling?
these hands are better at taking

you put 4 on the floor
and i'll break you in
you look good in the chains
of my discipline

bring the weight of the world
and i'll set you free
what you need isn't wrong
it was meant for me
so get down on your knees, baby
i got the key
what you want isn't wrong
it was meant for me

discipline
discipline
discipline

Track Name: I Want Your Love
we crawl down
to where we've never been
and i must find out
what it takes to stay here
he compels such things in me
but what i don't know i fear
i need you now

i want your love
i want your love

well i gave myself
one thousand little deaths
and i called your name
and i'll take you in
i'll suffer anything
if you'd call my name
'cause i need you now

i want your love
i want your love

but will we make it out
of where we've never been
i know too well
what it takes to stay here
he compels such hate in me
but when i don't feel, i fear
don't leave me now

i want your love
yeah, yeah
i want, i want your love
i want your love
i want, i want
i want your love
Track Name: Perfect
i'm a fool
'cause you're the same stone twice
and i fell over you
have i changed?
'cause the way you're acting makes no sense to me
but it's done

i'm a person, i breathe and dream and love and hurt
and break

and we were perfect
until we weren't perfect
the things you say
who could leave me this way?
the stains on the bed as i bled
bled, bled, bled the whole world away
we both died that day

and you don't have the right
to decide what's best for me
i can do these things on my own
and maybe you're the one for me
or maybe i remembered it wrong

and we were perfect
until we weren't perfect
the things you say
who could leave me this way?
the stains on the bed as i bled
bled, bled, bled the whole world away
we both died that day

when's the right time for a nightmare to collide with reality?
'cause you say i'm not alone but you weren't here to save me

i'm a fool
'cause you're the same stone twice
and i fell over you
over you
