Track Name: A Man Possessed
A Man Possessed

From across the room
I see you
I know what you do
I need it
You're a fatal disease
You love to flaunt it
I am on my knees
You know I want it

Need to feel your flame, don't leave me cold
After all, what good's a soul if it can't be sold?

(Chorus)
Like a man possessed
My heart is beating right through my chest
And I can't help it but I don't protest
Have I a cursed soul or am I blessed
This man possessed?

I feel that something sobering sting
Reality kicks in
And yet you remain
My twisted vixen
With your face close to mine
You whisper ' give in'
You control the hell I wanna live in

Need to feel your flame, don't leave me cold
After all, what good's a soul if it can't be sold?

(Chorus)

Can you taste it now?
This desperation
With a smile I face
Your condemnation
Don't be gentle now
Burn this effigy
Consume into yourself
Every part of me

I'll give you my torture and my pain
Just burn me down, don't build me up again

(Chorus)

Like a man possessed...(x4)

Come lick it off my lips
The tremulations in your fingertips
Vibrations in your skin as my effect takes hold
Burns bitter subjugation deep into your soul

Every part of me

I'm a man possessed (x4)
Track Name: Hellbent
Hellbent

Now we're standing at the edge
You look down with a grin
You know what you can live without
Do you see what's within?
Just turn around and run with it
It's still not too late
It's almost like you love this shit
You smile as you bang on the gate.

(Chorus)
Where will you be when it catches up to you?
I don't think you could have thought this through
Where will you go when you're busted up and spent?
Will you care, you're so hell bent

Dancing on the precipice
You know you're gonna fall
Watching you just fucks me up
Does it matter at all?
The time will come that I won't help
I'll be beyond your call
Will it be worth it to have no one
To catch you when you fall?

(Chorus)

Now it's time, do or die
Which way will you go?
You're gonna find it's way too much
Much more than you know
I guess I'm just a hypocrite
Cuz if this is farewell
I'm on the same fucking trip
I'll see you in hell!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Worth It
Worth It

Tell me that this isn't worth it
I was your shelter, you were my storm
Hold me and keep me forever
I'll hold you together safe and warm

Dreaming
An angel in anguish
Who spoke a new language behind my eyes
Praying that somehow you'd find me
And somehow remind me to drop the disguise

Kill me if this isn't worth it
I'd rather perish than do this alone
Found you surrounded in darkness
I've got the candle to light our way home

Tell me that this isn't worth it
I was your shelter, darling, you were my storm
Hold me and keep me forever
I'll hold you together safe and warm
Track Name: Never
Never

There's a place my mind takes me back to sometimes
I can still see your smile as we bask in the sunshine
Then it's taken away, but I don't regret you
I would never forget, I could never forget you

(Chorus)
As sure as stars
Aren't just at night
Not out of mind
Just out of sight
X2

You remember we watched our world crumbled before us
Demons taunted with grins and the angels ignored us
And it all crushed your heart, you decided you would leave
If you haven't yet you should just go forget me

(Chorus)

Picking through the debris, trying to piece it together
A perpetual storm no matter the weather
Ripped and tattered and torn, crumbling into the dark sea
Just don't ever forgive, don't ever forgive me
There's a shortness of breath when I ponder the death of
The life we tried to build and what we thought was love
You're worth every tear and for everything, thank you
But I'll never forgive, I'll never forgive you

I'll never forget
I'll never forget you
I'll never forgive
I'll never forgive you

(Chorus)
