Track Name: Spiders
There's a spider in my room
It crawls around me in the cocaine mist
It weaves a web to catch my dreams
It slowly spins a rope to cuff my wrists
To cuff my wrists and bind my feet

I always feel alone at night
It isn't right
But when it's day, I'm too afraid
To go outside

Maybe one day I'll go out
And find her
For now I'm only sleeping here
With spiders
Track Name: On the Bottom of the Sea
It's such a cold and lonely place
Where fishes feed upon your face
And you just lie there all the day
And I can't make them go away

I couldn't drag you from the waves
You never wanted to be saved
The sea was hungry for your heart
I watched it tearing you apart

And in my dreams I'm here with you
And though I know it isn't true
That you were swallowed by the sea
I feel your warmth so close to me

It hurts to see you got this far
And that I don't know who you are
That you're so far away from me
And that the sun will never shine on the bottom of the sea

And in my dreams you're always crying
And I want to make you quit
But you tell me I'm a liar
That I do not give a shit

And I try to touch your face
And put the tears back in your eyes
But I end up hurting you
And you have bruises on your thighs

And I have scars across my belly
In the shape of children's hands
All ripping, pushing, pinching, hurting me
Whichever way they can

All I want is just to hold you
Shed a light so you can see
But I've erased you and destroyed you
Driven you away from me
Track Name: Black and Blue
Take me back to the start
Drive a stake into my heart
Make me laugh and make me frown
Dress me in your morning gown

It's black and blue
And beautiful it's coming after you
Don't run, don't hide
You'll find it follows you inside

It's ice cold, it's white gold
I know the power that it holds
It's true, it's beautiful
It's coming after you

Take me deep into the night
Take my vision, take my sight
Turn the tables upside down
And dress me in your morning gown

It's black and blue
And beautiful it's coming after you
Don't run, don't hide
You'll find it follows you inside

It's ice cold, it's white gold
I know the power that it holds
It's true, it's beautiful
It's coming after you

So take me to the present
Hand me to the ocean
You are like a godsend
All the world in motion

I've traveled to no end
I require treatment
All the odds in favour
All I hope to savour

Snakes and spiders haunting
Dreams like webs are taunting
My feet are of inapt size
I fear we will capsize

So hand me to the ocean
I will swim today
But one day I will pull the plug
And drain it all away
Track Name: Liberation
Oh, why did I ever decide
To keep all these feelings inside?
I know I can't keep up the fight

Oh, why did I think it was right (It has to be)
To keep all these feelings inside? (I must be free)
The pressure's consuming me

Oh, why did I ever decide (I can't go on)
To keep all these feelings inside? (restraint is gone)
My spirit is longing for liberation
Liberation, liberation
Track Name: November Day
I was lost when you found me on that cold November day
I was hopeless and lonely but you helped me find a way
You took me in and you promised me I'd never sleep alone
But after over a year you got me crying through the phone

In the darkness around me you're the only light I see
I tried to find something else, but you're the only one for me

I can't let go, I want to know how long the candle burns
(I've been bruised for so long I don't remember how we used to be)
The final call will end it all and hit me where it hurts
(I've been waiting for you to put me out of my misery)

In the place I'm now staying it's safe and the weather is warm
But on the beautiful days I secretly long for a storm
Our ship was sinking at sea, we knew we'd never reach the shore
And now it's over, I know I'll never be the same anymore
Track Name: City
We followed the rain
All our efforts were in vain
But this place has different stars
It has forgotten who we are

The homes are cold and full of ash
And in the rooms lies broken glass
The road we walked took stranger turns
Between the bridges that we burned

I don't know if I can leave the past
I don't know if I can make it last

I woke up again
All dreams have to end
It's seven years ago
All that was lies under snow

I don't know if I can leave the past
I don't know if I can make it last
