Track Name: Sunsets and Eclipses
I have never seen your face
Nor half the dead who walk beside me
Yet I dream I know your voice and your touch
Like a shadow close behind

With your pale hands
You burn my wings
With your pale hands
You burn my wings

I fall to my knees x2
I fall - to my knees x2
(This will always be our scene
This will be our unity
Now I finally understand all that matters is you and me)

And I want to blame you
And I want to hate you
Open your eyes and see me
Open your eyes and free me

From the sins that bind
Me to you
For the games I play
And bleed for you

Open your eyes and see me
Open your eyes and free me

And I can't run from you
No I can't run from you

Open your eyes and see me
Open your eyes and free me
(This will always be our scene
This will be our unity
Now I finally understand all that matters is you and me)

And I can't run from you
No I can't run from you
(I can't run to you)

With your pale hands
You burn my wings
Track Name: Maquiladoras
Tell me
do you still
sleep in the same room
with the doors left unlocked
your head against the wall?
With your crooked fingers
You so delicately judge my every move
You like the way I writhe
I like the way you crawl

Don’t leave me alone
Just let me in and I will
Don’t leave me alone
And I will cut you sweet and slow

And let you you burn
I'll set you on fire cause I'm on fire
And watch you burn
I let you lie cause I’m a liar
Don’t leave me alone
Just let me in and I will
Don’t leave me alone
I will take your breath away

Tell me love
Do you remember the time
I bit you on the wrist
I was really just afraid
Of the hunt
And the other poachers
So you run rabbit, run
You like the way I chase

Don’t leave me alone
Just let me end and I will
Don’t leave me alone
I will be the only love you know

I want you to burn
I’ll set you on fire cause I’m on fire
And watch you burn
I let you lie cause I’m a liar

Don’t leave me alone
I am so lost without you
x2

I will take your breath away

(away)

Don’t leave me alone
Just let me in and I will
x3

Don’t leave me alone
I will take your breathe away
Track Name: Flightmask
I toss and turn, alone in the dark
Where human gods aim for their mark and take them down
One, by one, by one, by one

My skin turns like hot ink would
I watch it burn, it's well understood that I
Can't outrun the sun

We have always been the damned
Made to writhe from the day we met
Like children who run from a God, a God, a God

When suns collide
I would give my eyes
I come to life
In the eye of the night I'll take flight
Meet me in the dark on the other side
(x2)
When suns collide

I toss and turn alone in the dark
Waiting for the hint of a spark to line them up
One, by one, by one, by one, by one
My skin turns like hot ink would
I watch it burn, it's well understood that I
Can't outrun the sun, the sun, the sun

When suns collide
I would give my eyes
I come to life
In the eye of the night I'll take flight
Meet me in the dark on the other side
(x2)
When suns collide

We have always been the damned
Made to writhe from the day we met
Like children who run from a God... a God
(x2)

When suns collide
I would give my eyes
I come to life
In the eye of the night I'll take flight
Meet me in the dark on the other side
(x2)
(We'll always take this flight)
As suns collide
Track Name: After the Trainwreck
There was a fire
I lost myself to the charm
Behind every doorway
It met me with open arms

Would you
promise me forever if I
Forget how it feels
Would you
Give me the whole world if I
Forget what is real
Outside the fire

I was a child
You held me in your arms
I open the door and I am like a child
Again reborn

Would you
Promise me forever if I
Forget what is real
Would you
Give me the whole world if I
Forget how it feels

Crash, burn, sleep
With one eye open
Drown in dreams
Soul is broken down
I believe you're under my skin
You see behind my eyes to the murderer I am

I locked myself
In the burning room
Where the breathlessness in here
It made me dream of you

You strip me skin from bone
You see me just as I am

In spite of me
I beg for your affection
In spite of me
I torture my reflection
In spite of me (I crash, you burn)
I let you claw my eyes out
In spite of me (I crash, you burn)
For you I give my mind

Crash, burn, sleep
With one eye open
Crash, burn, sleep
Your light decays

Crash, burn, sleep
With one eye open
Crash, burn, sleep
You'll light the way
