Track Name: Enter The Swarm
LOOK INTO ITS EYES... IT SEES WHAT WE CAN'T
AND THEN THE MIRROR CRACKED.
Track Name: Hivemind
DEFEAT IS JUST A CHEMICAL WEAKNESS
STAY AWAY FROM TENDER WORDS WITH HIDDEN MEANINGS
BEYOND THIS CONSTELLATION THERE ARE NO FEELINGS ALLOWED
TAKE OFF THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD FROM YOUR SHOULDERS
DISCOMPOSURE PAVES THE ONLY TRAIL THAT I KNOW
PICK UP THE PIECES AND BUILD SKYLINES ABOVE
MADE FROM THESE BROKEN THOUGHTS A GOLDEN THRONE ROSE
WHITE NOISE AND STATIC TOOK WHAT WAS MINE

I TRIED TO STAY AWAKE, THIS WORLD WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE
YES I WANT TO BELIEVE, OH I'D DIE TO BELIEVE
I TRIED TO STAY AWAKE
NEVER MEANT TO BE APART FOR A LONG TIME – MY FIRST REGRET

I'LL NEVER SEE LIGHT AGAIN
I'LL NEVER THINK FOR MYSELF
LEFT BRUISED AND BROKEN ASUNDER
THE EYE IS OPEN, I SEE THROUGH THE DARK SPACE BETWEEN
AND LOVE IS NO MORE, PAIN IS NO MORE, I AM NO MORE

ERASE THE PAST, DEFACED AT LAST, DOES IT REALLY MATTER TO US?

YOUR BURNING SELF, PHOTON AND SUBSTANCE
IN CONSTANT DECAY EVOLVING
A THOUSAND EYES WITNESSING MY FINAL BLINK
THE DEATH OF INDIVIDUALITY, THE TASTE OF SURRENDER
BELONG, BELONG, BELONG TO THE SWARM
YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR BONDS NO LONGER THERE
I'VE CREATED MONSTERS TO FEAR, KEEP THEM CLOSE TO ME
FEELING THEIR BREATH IN MY EARS

NEVER STRAY FROM THE INFECTIOUS PATH
GRASPING THE PATTERN, SHIFTING DEEPER
KALEIDOSCOPE MIND ARISE IN THE DARK
WITH BITTER CLAWS AROUND MY NECK
NEVER STRAY FROM THE INFECTIOUS PATH
BREAKING THE CYCLE, SHIFTING DEEPER
KALEIDOSCOPE MIND ARISE IN THE DARK
REMINDS THAT I'M BRETHREN TO THE CHASM
BECOME WEIGHTLESS, BECOME LOVELESS - ETERNAL

SWIM THROUGH THE DARK SPACE BETWEEN
AND HOPE THAT SOMEONE CAN SEE YOU
Track Name: Nebraska
WEATHER FORECAST REPORTS ALL OVER THE NATION DESCRIBE IT AS “THE STORM OF THE CENTURY”, SO, IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO GO OUT,BE PREPARED, IT'LL BE A HELL OF A NIGHT

LIGHTS OUT!
WON'T BE MISSED, JUST STAND UP FOR MYSELF
KEEP WANDERING THE RUINS THAT GAVE ME BIRTH

THEY GAVE HIM BRICKS AND STONES TO BUILD A HOME
IT DOESN'T MATTER, IT'S FAR FROM OVER
CAST ASTRAY IN FURIOUS SHORELINES
HE LEARNED TO EMBRACE HIS RAGE AND FORGET 'BOUT WHAT LIES AHEAD

WRECKAGE EUPHORIA, CYMATICLY SHIFTED BY CLOUDBURSTS
FOREVER CRAVE FOR A NEW DAWN, WHEN SILENCE DISAPPEARS
CHASING THE VORTEX, TWISTING FRAGMENTS OF BLISS & LAUGHTER
THAT HE'LL NEVER CALL HIS OWN
A CHILD OF NOWHERE, UNWANTED SON

I NEED TO WASH OUT
TO CRASH DOWN, SCREAMING OUT LOUD
WHEN I FALL INTO ANOTHER BREAKING POINT
NEBRASKA FEELS LIKE HOME
YOU HAVE TAKEN ALL THAT MATTERS, NOW IT'S TIME TO GET AROUND
BUT WHEN I FALL FOR ANOTHER TURNING POINT
NEBRASKA FEELS LIKE HOME

FAINT REMNANTS OF HIS MISCARRIED SOUL
NOT BEING ABLE TO CARE FOR OTHERS
WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE HE WILL BE
THE ONLY ONE STANDING HERE ALONE

DISGUSTED BY CALMNESS, ONLY FINDS PEACE IN DISASTER
THE WORLD TURNS ITS BACK AGAIN, SO WHAT'S LEFT FOR HIM?
GNASHING HIS TEETH, A SOMBERLY DANCE WITH THE WHIRLWIND
SPILLING IN THE AIR, HIS HASSLE REIGN
FULL OF BROKEN TOYS AND ELECTRICITY

UNLEASH THE STORM

THAT'S WHAT TAKES TO GROW UP
TORCH HIS DREAMS, BRING HIM TO HIS KNEES
MAKE HIS CHILDHOOD BLEED, THE SEED OF CONSUMPTION
FROM THE FIREBOLT TO THE PIT
Track Name: Ecotone
LET'S START A FIRE, BURN DOWN ALL THAT MADE US WHOLE
ILLUMINATE OUR PUPILS WITH THE VASTNESS OF THE EXTINCT
TRICKY ARE THE SHADOWS OVER YOUR FACE
THEY DANCE AND CHANGE AS AN UNDERWATER MELODY

EMPTY IN MEANING AND TERRIBLE IN NATURE
ASHES WILL MAKE UP OUR SHIVERING INTRASCENDENCE

THE BREACH BETWEEN THE STARS HAS TAKEN FROM US SECURITY
JUST TAKE A STEP BACK – TOO CLOSE TO SEE
CAPTURE THE NIGHT AND WRAP IT UP FOR US TO BE
IDLE AS IDOLS – TOO FAR TO REACH

WE USED TO FEEL INVINCIBLE
WE ARE THE ONES WHO RIDE THE BULLET
BUT NOW WE FEEL NOTHING AT ALL
TEARS, BONES, DESIRE, IT'S NEVER BEEN EASY

WHAT IF THAT FIRST NIGHT WE WOULDN'T LOOKED AT EACH OTHER?
HUNGER GROWS, I WANT TO IGNITE, I WANT TO BELONG
TO WHAT CANNOT BE TOUCHED, BUT YOU CAN'T STOP STARE AT
WITH LUNACY, WITH COMPLETENESS, WITH DISARRAY
WHOSE SIMPLE NAME REVEALS WHAT YOU REALLY ARE
WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO TEAR APART
EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED TO KNOW

BURN UNTIL IT DISAPPEARS, THE VULNERABILITY THAT GATHERS US
VANISH AMONG THE SMOKE, THE SKY THAT ABDUCTED US

WE USED TO FEEL INVINCIBLE
WE ARE THE ONES WHO RIDE THE BULLET
BUT NOW WE FEEL NOTHING AT ALL
TEARS, BONES, DESIRE, IT'S NEVER BEEN EASY

THE VEIL TORNS AND THE FLESH FLOW BACK AROUND THE SKULL
HE KNOWS SHE'S WAITING AT THE BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS

EVERYTHING ELSE IS OBLIVION
Track Name: Twin Tracks
RISING AND FALLING
RISE UP, EVEN THOUGH IT TAKES OUR CHANCES
I WON'T GIVE UP
BUT I SEE YOU, I FEEL YOU BETWEEN THE LINES
FALLING A MILLION MILES AWAY FROM NOWHERE
THE SPIRAL DROWNS ME NOW
BUT I SEE YOU, I FEEL YOU BETWEEN THE LINES
IT'S ALL ABOUT TIMING

WHAT IS LOVE? WHAT IS LOSS?
YOU TAUGHT ME THE FIRST TIME
OUR LIES ARE NOT MADE TO LAST
RISE UP, YOU WON'T BE DEFEATED BY THE WAVES, I FOUGHT!

WE'RE TAKING SEPARATE WAYS
YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO SLOW IT DOWN
STOP MOVING FOR THE SAKE OF THE MOTION
STOP UNTIL WE LEARN HOW TO PLAY TOGETHER
I GAVE EVERYTHING BUT IT WASN'T ENOUGH
TALKING BACKWARDS AT THE END OF THE WORLD
BUT I STILL CAN DRAW YOUR FACE

I PLAYED MY PART, I FACED MY FEARS
START BLOWING WORDS AWAY
I CAN'T RECALL THE TASTE
WIPED OUT BY THE RAIN
IT'S ALL ABOUT TIMING

WHAT IS LOVE? WHAT IS LOSS?
YOU TAUGHT ME THE FIRST TIME
OUR LIES ARE NOT MADE TO LAST
RISE UP, YOU WON'T BE DEFEATED BY THE WAVES, I FOUGHT!

TODAY IT'S THE LAST DAY TO TRY HONESTY
A DESPERATE MEASURE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
BURY ALL EXCUSES, SPREAD YOUR ROOTS IN ME

YOU THINK YOU'RE BETTER OFF ALONE, ANYWHERE BUT HERE
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, BUT YOUR'S SPILLED ALL OVER THE SPHERE
CAN'T MAP MY WAY BACK TO THE ISLAND
AND NOW WE'RE STARING AT INDIFFERENT SUNS
YEAH, YOU COULD HAVE TRIED
Track Name: Something More
THRIVE!

FOLDED ALONG, A SCRATCH IN THE SHEET OF LIFE
YOU'VE SETTLED ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE PAPER AGAIN
I CAN SEE THE TRACES IN THE INK THAT SOAKS THROUGH THE FIBRE
AND DISINTIGRATES THE MILLSTONE OF ALL EXISTENCE

EVADE THIS PATH, A CREASE IN TIME
THAT DISTORTS INTO LIFE
MERGED WITH THE PAST
OVER AND OVER AGAIN
THERE MUST BE SOMETHING MORE
A GLIMPSE THAT I RENDERED BEFORE
I COME UNDONE

IS THIS ALL THERE IS?
WITH ANIMOSITY I WILL MAKE BELIEVE
THAT WE WILL THRIVE

SLOW BUT RELENTLESS I ADVANCE
THIS MISPERCEPTION IS CONSEQUENCE OF ALL THIS WRATH INSIDE
SLOW BUT RELENTLESS I ABIDE
THIS MISPERCEPTION IS CONSEQUENCE OF ALL THOSE CRIES OUTSIDE

THIS ARMADA WON'T SURRENDER, OF FIRE AND SOIL WE CHOOSE FIRE
PHOSPHORESCENT FEVER SCARS CRASHING IN ON WAVES
BECKONING THE BIRTH OF FLIGHT BETWEEN THE SHOULDERS

THE END IS CLOSE TO ME
PARALLEL VAPOUR TRAILS CARVED BY THIS PAPER PLANE
AND WE WILL COME TOGETHER

I AM THE AERIAL, FROM MY PASSING I WILL CATCH EVERY SINGLE STAR
THE HAZED MOON DESCENDS, INFUSED WITH THE VERY AIR

I'LL WAIT TO SEE YOU, MY SOMETHING MORE
THIS IS WHY I HAVE TO GO, THIS IS WHY I HAVE TO GO
I'LL WAIT TO SEE YOU, BUT NOW I HAVE TO GO

THE LACK OF CONSCIOUSNESS, THE PRICE TO PAY
A LONESOME JOURNEY, THE RIDGE WE ESCALADE
THE LACK OF CONSCIOUSNESS, AN HONEST MISTAKE
A LONESOME JOURNEY, THE RIDGE WE ESCALADE
Track Name: The Bitter End
Original song by Placebo. Lyrics by Brian Molko.

SINCE WE'RE FEELING SO ANAESTHETISED
IN OUR COMFORT ZONE
REMINDS ME OF THE SECOND TIME
THAT I FOLLOWED YOU HOME

WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF ALIBIS
FROM THE SECOND OF MAY
REMINDS ME OF THE SUMMER TIME
ON THIS WINTER'S DAY

SEE YOU AT THE BITTER END

EVERY STEP WE TAKE THAT'S SYNCHRONIZED
EVERY BROKEN BONE
REMINDS ME OF THE SECOND TIME
THAT I FOLLOWED YOU HOME

YOU SHOWER ME WITH LULLABIES
AS YOU'RE WALKING AWAY
REMINDS ME THAT IT'S KILLING TIME
ON THIS FATEFUL DAY

SEE YOU AT THE BITTER END

FROM THE TIME WE INTERCEPTED
FEELS A LOT LIKE SUICIDE
SLOW AND SAD, GROWN INSIDE US
AROUSE AND SEE YOU'RE MINE

LOVE HAS SEEN YOU RUN-AROUND
WHO WANNA SEEK YOU NOW?
I WANT A PEACE, I'D WHINE OUT
LOVE'S REACHED HIS SIDE
GRAB THIS GENTLENESS INSIDE
HEARD A CRY
SIX FEET DOWN IN SIX WEEK'S TIME
THE MESS YOU LEFT WILL END
SEE YOU AT THE BITTER END
Track Name: Spotlights & Papercuts
I HOLD MY BREATH, YOU CHECK THE TIME
I DIVE RIGHT IN, YOU CHECK THE TIDE
STARE AT ME UNTIL I COLLAPSE - YOU AGREED TO FOLLOW A WEAK PARADOX
I LEAD THE WAY, IT'S MEANINGLESS - LUCKY US, I'M OBLIVIOUS AND A FAKE
THEY DIDN'T BREAK ME, I WAS ALREADY BROKEN

I KNOW IT'S KILLING ME, AND I KNOW IT'S COMING BACK FOR MORE
I KNOW IT'S UNDERNEATH ME - SHOULD I BE FIGHTING BACK?

NEVER ENOUGH
WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF DEFIANCE, SPOTLIGHTS AND PAPERCUTS

MANNEQUIN'S EYES PRY AWAY AND WE BREED NO RESISTANCE TO THEIR SIGHT
DESCRIBING SUNSETS TO THE BLIND, SO THEY COULD CATCH A GLIMPSE
TO RETCH THE VOID AND EVADE ITS DEPTH
WOUNDS WIDE OPEN, I SHOULD REMOVE THE ASHES BUT I'M FOREVER LOST TO APATHY

I KNOW IT'S KILLING ME, AND I KNOW IT'S COMING BACK FOR MORE
I KNOW IT'S UNDERNEATH ME - SHOULD I BE GIVING UP?

WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF DEFIANCE, SPOTLIGHTS AND PAPERCUTS
NEVER ENOUGH
WAKE UP TO THE SONG OF THE SIRENS - YOU HELD THE WORLD IN YOUR HANDS

I HIT THE GROUND SO HARD THAT NO ONE COULD EVER DIG ME OUT
THAT'S A FEEBLE ATTEMPT TO AN OLD HOPELESS CASE

ALL BRIDGES SHALL FALL APART!

WE'RE NOT HEADING NORTH, I WAS AFRAID (LYING) AND NOW WE'RE LOST
PAST IS NOT BEHIND US AND WE'RE ENGULFED BY ITS DAWN

NEVER FIND A PLACE TO CALL IT HOME

WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF DEFIANCE
I GUESS YOU'D NEVER UNDERSTAND
NEVER ENOUGH
WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF DEFIANCE, SPOTLIGHTS AND PAPERCUTS
WAKE UP TO THE SONG OF THE SIRENS - YOU HELD THE WORLD IN YOUR HANDS
