Track Name: Lovelost
Could you ride the resistance to the edge of the world?
Could you reclaim the night for the Lovelost, the brave and the broken?
We will ride the resistance, to the edge of the world
We will reclaim the night for the Lovelost…
Track Name: We Are The Night (feat. David Vernon)
Get ready for the show

Forever walking the streets alone
I can’t stand by as he pulls up towards you, his respect clearly left at the door
She said to me, I never had a clue if I was worth anything
It’s my destiny, the only thing I’ll ever own is what you see

Storm the streets
My dying wish would be to watch them suffer, watch them bleed
They put you on the streets at seventeen

So I’ll be in demand when the clock strikes twelve
Just listen for his step and wait for the call
A night of pretty lights and scary fights you know too well
But if the slipper fits, just take a hint and drop the chandelier on the ball
Tables have turned as you part the floor

Storm the streets my dying wish would be
To watch them suffer, to watch them bleed
Can you resist to pay them what they need

She can’t be saved

From him, no turning back
This caste is all you have
This is your chance to prove you can win the game
The spine of the hound is the hardest back to break

Lovelost brothers and sisters come on stand up
Courageous contagious united in
Lovelost brothers and sisters come on back me up
Get the rage out and get up

I’m the rogue who saw you from afar
A fleeting memory guiding the sentry
As we dance into the night
Our chemistry collides and if the ox should show
We’ll take him down tonight

My dying wish to show the world how well the slipper fits
Just give yourself a chance to prove that, forever starts with me

Storm the streets my dying wish would be
To watch them suffer, to watch them bleed
Can you resist to pay them what they need

She can’t be saved
From him, no turning back
Just throw away your caste
This is your chance to prove you can win the game
The spine of the hound is the hardest back to break
Track Name: Ghosts In Glass Houses (feat. Allan Bogut)
You build me high
To watch me fall

Straight ahead don’t look twice
Plan alone for days, alone for days
Contemplating all you know

You build me high just watch me fall
I’ll never know a life outside these lines
This is the start of the end for us all
I’ll never get the days back on my own

Look at me, look at me wasting away
The look in your eyes, I feel empty
Look at me listening into every word you say

You build me up just to watch me react to every little sound
That I hear you make
I’m treading on eggshells, treading on eggshells
Every time I cross you with every mistake

You build me high just to watch me burn
I couldn’t reason, I couldn’t win with you
I know it’s you against the world
But then I’ll get to be back on my own

Look at me, look at me wasting away
The look in your eyes, I feel empty
Look at me listening into every word you say
Start listening
To the signs to the echoes in the cave filling me the confidence to blame
Abused your attitude will fill me with the fire inside

The fire inside will bring you to the brink
To the brink
I will end the suffering,
You promised me everything
I need you to understand there’s nothing left for me

Look at me, look at me wasting away
The look in your eyes, I feel empty
Look at me listening into every word you say
Start Listening
To the signs to the echoes in the cave filling me with the confidence to blame
Abused your attitude will fill me with the courage to refuse

From the look in your eyes I feel empty
Track Name: Look At All The F#@ks I Give
Carousel!

Hearts united at a glance, I like you, you love me
So what’s the chance
Each day we break the air with silence.
So who’s waving my banner now?
This conversation is the cruelest shackle
That brings me to the wall

Could you wager the moment it started
A second glance just to know if I’m feeling this tonight
I saw the fire I saw the ignition but now I see you in plain sight
This Is The End
Never forget the ways you held us for ransom
You’re living life like it’s one night to remember

Saved by sacrifices in my life
It wasn’t fate or fucking destiny serving a purpose
Don’t ever ask cause I won’t tell you that I know
I’m the archer you’re the anchor on this violent carousel

Is this the life you dreamed of each time you thought of us
I feel defeated in this corner
Watch me back down while you show off
Your pretty smile, your gorgeous teeth and your bright blue eyes
Too many misdemeanours to count, too many times I would self doubt

React to everything I do
I've got the ammo to load, the resolution to prove
Your marching on just isn’t going to help your little crusade for what’s wrong and right
No cheaters allowed, get to the back of the line
Stick to your guns, no need to think I’m sure we’ll be just fine

Saved by sacrifices in my life
It wasn’t fate or fucking destiny serving a purpose
Don’t ever ask cause I won’t tell you that I know
I’m the archer you’re the anchor on this violent carousel

I’m just fine
This is the end for misdirection I couldn’t resist to play one last time
I’m searching for the satisfaction that you denied

I’ll go back to the time when we met young lovers hypotised by chemistry
This brain disease
I’ll find a way to stop this happening
I’ll pay for this ride one last time

Saved by sacrifices in my life
It wasn’t fate or fucking destiny serving a purpose
Don’t ever ask cause I won’t tell you that I know
I’m the archer you’re the anchor on this violent carousel
Track Name: Dear Daughter (en pathos)
With feathers we all flock above the sky into the clouds
How can I judge the actions of a child who loves with the grace of a dove
Of a dove
It’s only all I know

Down these dark alleyways, we shiver as we speak
Expel your demons from your conscience I’ll pledge to make my family see
Even if we could fight tradition as we know it, they’ll never understand us
If we had an answer for everything

Thinking I craved to be the one to pick you
Up off the ground wipe the tears away
I can’t stand to look in your eyes and tell you
What you need you’ll never see
Dear daughter I hope you can save me

I hope you can save me
From the pain of the feeling
My heart is swelling up into my chest
And when I call you I’m under house arrest
Everyday for a lifetime, lets break away from the lifeline
I never thought he’d turn to me
This father fail no hope of salvaging
The beast alive will set me free

I craved to be the one to pick you
Up off the ground wipe the tears away
I can’t stand to look in your eyes and tell you
What you need you’ll never see
Dear daughter I hope you can save me

I hope you can save me from this feeling inside
I hope you can save me from facing the truth of us
These riddles have been locked inside
Unknowing whether we should or keep the disguise
They couldn’t tell us if we’re wrong or if we’re right

All I can wish is we’ll see the stars someday
From up above the earth will fly where peace is the only victory

I’ll be the one to pick you
Up off the ground wipe the tears away
I can’t stand to look in your eyes and tell you
I am the coward, I’m the cheat
Dear daughter I hope you can save me
Track Name: Artemis, Keeper of Hearts
Hark the angels, I cannot hear your song
Some guidance would be helpful these days I can’t go on
What’s my cue to call in
I can’t navigate the stars tonight
Lost signals in a silhouette I’m afraid to recognise this time
I’ll fight the attitudes I’ll fight the raging herd against
What I feel and all I know is the subject
So can we lay this avalanche to rest?
We’ll make our move at dawn
They cannot touch us from here on in
We’re running blind into the stars

Huntress I couldn’t keep you safe against the rise
They’re marching on for king and country
For what they feel is right
Huntress I cannot tell their faces from their lies
There’s no one left to count on nothing stopping us from taking flight

I’ve arrived to see the towers fall, take the name of the hero that stands
The mark of a leader, my weapon of choice
You couldn’t resist by my hand
We’ll make our move at dawn
They cannot touch us from here on in
I’m running blind into your arms

Huntress I couldn’t keep you safe against the rise
They’re marching on for king and country
For what they feel is right
Huntress I cannot tell their faces from their lies
There’s no one left to count on nothing stopping us from taking flight

They didn’t tell us
We couldn’t know
We’re the victims of it all
We hold the privilege of the few
Behold the den of lions fighting tooth and claw for you

We will rise up, this territorial world begins to fall
And all that’s left to die for is our desire to be at one with all
Huntress I couldn’t keep you safe against the rise
They’re marching on for king and country
For what they feel is right
Huntress I cannot tell their faces from their lies
There’s no one left to count on nothing stopping us from taking back our lives
