Track Name: Wolves
and we will run as far as we can from this empty winter road,
where window stares watch light stretch
across the morning that we're owed.
our minds remember best the things we can't let go.
time is passing so much faster and now the sky is all we know.

and our eyes have been sharpened
with the regret that's caught in our throats.

[chorus]
when the world ends, when this life's unwound,
will we smile so sweetly as the wolves hunt them down?
and beneath the moon, they will pray to not be found...
will we smile so sweetly as the wolves hunt them down?

but it's their fault, you know, they were so selfish, so naive...
and they forgot all we had done and who we were so easily.
the air, it thickens now, under the weight of all their thoughts.
we used to want the future, but the future came...
and look what it has brought.

[chorus]

down, down...
hunt them down.

the worst is over.
the worst is over.

[chorus]

the wolves hunt.
[hunt them down.]
Track Name: Addiction
there's no pill that i can take to make you go away
my self-afflicting new addiction breaks me everyday
beyond the city lights, i watch the starless sky
and try to figure out why you're still on my mind

[chorus]
you keep your silence, but i know quite well what dreams can do
and i'll admit that i still wish that mine were made of you
i wanted so much more than long goodbyes and sympathy
but then you killed those pretty words with brutal honesty

i can't believe that we have come to see this broken end
and how could you just watch me fall when it was all pretend?
now you can write me off and say there was no chemistry
but that's a blatant lie and i know you're not done with me

[chorus]

you could have saved me from myself if you had only stayed
but now i fight the endless night inside the bed you made
i would have sung you all my songs, if you had only asked
but how was i to know that you were never coming back

there's no pill that i can take to make you go away

[chorus]
Track Name: ...And I Wish You Away (feat. Dante Marino of Forever the Fallen)
the only thing that i can say is close your eyes and pray.

i stand here waiting, poison held within my tiny hands...
dare i drink my life away? we only have one chance.
but if we want this antidote to work, the only thing that i can say is, "close your eyes and pray...pray."

your precious words, your perfect skin...
my quiet patience wearing thin.
forget my name, forget this night...
for i will never speak again.

now rain is falling,
[rain is falling]
the mist is covering this place.
[i'll never speak again]
you hear me calling,
[hear me calling]
but still you cannot see my face.
[i'll never speak again]
they'll search for motives,
[search for motives]
and see no reason for the end.
[i'll never speak again]
they'll never notice,
[never notice]
and i will never speak again.

don't hold me back!

don't hold me back, i'll break right through these diamond walls to shatter you.
you can't resist my siren song, you'll breathe me in but not for long.
[but if we want this antidote to work,
the only thing that i can say is "close your eyes and pray."
your soul is slipping through my fingers now,
so taste my flawless smile and wish your worthless life away.]

your precious words, your perfect skin...
my quiet patience wearing thin.
[your words, this night, i'll never speak again]
forget my name, forget this night...
[your words, this night, i'll never speak again]
for i will never speak again.
[don't hold me back!]
i'll never speak again.
[don't hold me back!]
again.
