Track Name: Chamber
Let them play in the dirt, maybe they will find this cold man's dreams...
In a chamber of hurt, nothing is as it seems.
Tell me where do we go, if we don't have a heart to lead the way?
Oh these nights they get so cold, but there ain't much sun this time of day...

Ooo, ooo.

They say run, young man run - but I feel like death is creeping close behind,
I'm in this world on my own, no there ain't nobody of my kind.
So I dream, yes I dream… 'til I reach my days end.
I'm alone, I'm so alone - so I'm screaming out for any kind of friend.

Ooo, ooo, ooo.
Track Name: Set Me Free
Caught either side of the firing line and I don't know where I stand.
I would run, I'd run for my life, but i don't know if I can...
Says she'd sometimes rather be 6 foot under, than to stay another day.
I've had as much as I can take, cause I don't know what to say.

So I runaway, I run fast as I can,
I head to the hills, nothin' but the clothes on my back,
and I'll run for days, 'til I get where I wanna be,
lift this burden off my shoulders, someone set me free… Someone set me free.

I've spent my money over the years, on things that I don't need…
My ego has become this monster, that I have to feed.
As much as I want for him to wither away, he gives me breathe I need.
And all of this is out (of) my hands, and it haunts me 'til I sleep.

So I runaway, I run fast as I can,
I head to the hills, nothin' but the clothes on my back,
and I'll run for days, 'til I get where I wanna be,
lift this burden off my shoulders, someone set me free… Someone set me free.
Track Name: Wolves and Thieves
Look at this mess I made...
This home's burned to the ground, no la fenice…
No I won't pray tonight, God's turned his back on me.

Take me deep into the dark, and put the trigger to my head,
Time to pay my dues and rid this debt, so I can sleep in my bed.
I rest with wolves and thieves… even they're better than me.

My bottle is now empty, time to wake to reality,
fighting off the animals that bring me to my knees.
The sun it burns my skin so I try living in the dark...

Look at this mess I made...
This home's burned to the ground, no la fenice…
No I won't pray tonight, God's turned his back on me.

Look at this mess I made...
This home's burned to the ground, no la fenice…
No I won't pray tonight, God's turned his back on me.

God's turned his back on me, God's turned his back on me, God's turned his back on me.
Track Name: In My Hands
Wait outside your door, I'm too ashamed to come inside - now I'm all alone.
Things were said I can't take back, that's what she told me on the phone.
Who was I to say, that things would work out? But everybody now and then, all have their doubts…

And it was my mistake, to take the world in my hands, cause things go astray - they don't always stick to plan, consequences are no friend of mine - so you two will get along just fine, just fine, just fine.

She doesn't know what to say, and says she tries her best - but the trust is so gone, sometimes the truth it ain't the best. I thought I'd never see her face, I thought I'd turn my cards - but sometimes cards we're dealt ain't fair, the way I learnt was hard.

And it was my mistake, to take the world in my hands, cause things go astray - they don't always stick to plan, consequences are no friend of mine - so you two will get along just fine, just fine, just fine.

And it was my mistake, to take the world in my hands, cause things go astray - they don't always stick to plan, consequences are no friend of mine - so you two will get along just fine, just fine, just fine.
Track Name: Fall from Grace (feat. Nikki Sheppard)
Smoke fills my eyes as you drive away,
oh i don't have good feeling about this day.
Yelling at the top of your lungs…
Oh were about have some fun now

What did you say when you fell from grace?
Beggin' on my knees for your return.
Where did you go when you fell from grace?
But its about damn time someone put you in your place.

We all walk down to the water to cleanse our hands.
Don't listen to a word I say, they're just demands.
I don't have good feelin about this day
We all walk down to the water water, cleanse our hands and pray.

What did you say when you fell from grace?
Beggin' on my knees for your return.
Where did you go when you fell from grace?
But its about damn time someone put you in your place.
Track Name: Monster (feat. Nikki Sheppard)
Call me a monster, I can't be justified.
Take me down to the forest, and leave me there to die.
Tie my hands behind my back, and make me walk the line.
Everything it sickens me, you strain to force a smile…

Reach into my body, and pull on out my soul.
All i want is a bottle, my body's far too cold…
And I don't know these people, the stares they give me hurt…
And so I try escaping, but I fall right in the dirt.

These floors are creaking now, my knees are getting weak.
And I can't find the right words, to the answers that I seek…
And so my heart keeps bleeding, as I write my tale down...
I won't let them catch me, bury me 'to the ground.

Call me a monster, I can't be justified.
Take me down to the forest, and leave me there to die.
Tie my hands behind my back, and make me walk the line.
Everything it sickens me, you strain to force a smile…

Roaches scatter before me, scared of the chains around my feet.
So I hang my head below my shoulders, let me go, I admit defeat,
And he hears the bang so he goes fair well to his last breath...
And that's the last of this monster now, cause the man you knew fell to his death.
