Track Name: Vive La Mort
Give the boy an inch, watch him run a mile
A bitter mistake, will be sweet in a while
Don't be afraid
I've been waiting for so long

Feeling terrible, criminal oh
It's heaven and hell and everything in between,
I could go insane.
But I take what I want.

My eyes on you, hold steady, aim
(You're gonna get it)
One more before you're going to fall
Got my sights on you, now ready, aim
(You're gonna get it)
Not going back to where you were before

Tonight we come alive, hold on tight, look at this fucking mess,
Look at the look in your eyes
Such a pretty face
And I want to destroy, oh

Wait until I say, give me more,
C'est la crème de la crème avant de la petite mort
Only a little death.
Just take it and go home

Give the boy an inch, watch him run a mile
It's heaven and hell and everything in between,
I could go insane.
Go!

Feeling paralysed, but you're traumatised, it won't be long
Before I'm going inside.
It's a burning flame.
Ready, aim, fire!
Track Name: Home
Put down the photograph
And have one more for the night
Raise the cup to you and drink if memory serves me right
I'll smoke this cigarette, before I chase you down.
But not alone.

Now there's no mistake, that face I've left behind now
Without a reason or a trace. I'm coming for you now.
Is this a memory, or a dream I've had?
I'm going home alone. I'm going home.

Somewhere the same clouds hang over you tonight.
I think sometimes even the stars need a place to hide.
These promises we made, became mistakes somehow.
I'm going home alone. I'm going home.

Put down the photograph
And have one more for the night
Raise my hands to you and drink because it serves you right
If you want to go, I will take you
I care
Track Name: This Is Not A Test
Swallow, drink it down
And wash it away
Give a smile while
The pain of the world's on your face
Tuck your teeth in, open mouthed for the people
Don't forget to bite down

Dissect. No regrets then.
One .357 aimed this time the
Odds going your way
Open the gates to hell when
We can't expect to win
Fucking over

But you won't save me this time.
So what are you going to do with this?
It won't save you. This time.
So what are we going to do?

You're free to go when you want
No one can leave
You say that you don't, even I don't understand me
Anoint the children, hold still, nurse them to sleep.
Watch them froth at the mouth now.

Get back, stand back, don't do this
Please leave the room if this will affect you
The story of the decade
We can't expect to win
Fucking over

But you won't save me this time.
So what are you going to do with this?
It won't save you. This time.
So where are we going to?

You can't back down now
You got it wrong
You can't back out now
Oh no
Good day to be alive
Good day to die
You can't back out now
Oh no

Drink it down, and you swallow that smile with it...
Track Name: They Kill You In The End
One night will not go through
Fade into somewhere new
No more of what we're bound
I searched with nothing found

I watched the world turn blue
Pray for something new
Hold on, the light will find
Until the light went blind

Know that all your cries we heard
What you are now, we were
Hang on, tomorrow see
What we are now, you'll be

Where do we go?
This soul couldn't stay.
We'll carry on.
But when will it end?
