Track Name: Lest Our Voyage End
I was saved by the light she shed
Glistening; a little piece of the action
My mistress beckons from her bed
Gazing on my form
(The baying hounds in the distance)
I don't want to fight you anymore
I've got a little secret, wait and see

I'm a living nightmare
And I'm terrified of what the look in your eye intends
Lest our voyage end
The silver is your friend

Stalking among the silhouettes
Thoughts of insurrect
(And how I long for the lucid)
A wicked hour of self-reflect
Lain among the shadows of her face
I don't want to feel you
But I've got a little secret coming for me

Sparing just a moment for my name
Lay me at the altar of decay
Born out of Lycosuran haze
Invite the simple call to eat
To eat meat
Track Name: Safe From Numbers
Drifting through the void
Mouthing every name
Prayers for swinging ghosts
Martyred in their shame

I took the life of those I've loved
I saved anguish to rise above

Decayed echoes of before
Singing as they seethe
Voices of the earth aching to be freed
From the yards of bone
Faces in the trees whisper to me

I forgot myself
A lasting madness conquers me
Flee this waking hell
A feeling I won't live to breathe

Safe from numbers, wait and see
Their milky-eyed soliloquy
Track Name: Louder Than Love
I've come to learn from what others would soon forget
To defect from the space between sin and regret
Still shadows frame a white-washed scene
The faces in the mirror, the ending of the unforeseen
Will you wait for me within the dream?

You and I will touch the stars
We are louder than love!

I keep my king castled on nights spent away
My head spins with the thought of you every day
Girl, if all I am is all you see
Then look a little closer and set your restless mind at ease
I look the same beneath the sheets

Take my hand and touch the stars
We are louder than love!
