Track Name: The Mourning Calm (Intro)
사랑이 식었어
(Love has grown cold)
Track Name: 꺼져!
Lies sucking the life from me
Die for tearing a hole in me
I 'm no longer a slave to you
Fuck off!

뭐? 시간이 약이다?
너 영원히 꺼지다
시간이 약안이야
꺼져!

너 악한 암이야
야! 지금 사라지다!
난 가슴이 아파야
꺼져!

Tears will no longer shed for you
I will not be dragged down by you
Leave, go spread your plague somewhere else
Fuck off!

I have cast you from my life
Never to return
I will see you end
I will watch you burn

Your damage comes undone
Your idols will fall down
And now that you are gone
The memories will drown

Never again
Never return
Track Name: Preternatural
How can I possibly meet your eyes like
this?
Your smile everywhere I turn, shining light
on a world I don't deserve.

I've travelled this far
I can't turn back now
Satisfy my obsession
Ignoring how much it hurts...

How can I possibly go on like this?
My sorrow grows with every turn, casting
shadow on your shining world.

"How dare you feel sorry for yourself
in this field of tragic golden tears"

Never meant to be
I accept defeat
I could wallow here forever, if i
could but i cannot

And we'll never toss the coin
No we'll never place a lock
I would stand and stare forever, if I
could, but I cannot

All I've wanted for so long
An addiction grown too strong
I could stand and stare forever, but for your
sake, I will not.
Track Name: Don't Go Out At Night
Please forgive the tears on the bedroom floor
Just know that they are not your fault
Please forgive the blood stained bathroom door
Just know that it is not your fault

I can only forget for so long
A fleeting distraction
When the sun sets this all falls apart
A violent reaction

Please forgive the tears that pollute the
stream
The result of a life at fault
Please forgive the outburst, clenched
fist scream
The result of a life thats flawed

I can only forget for so long
A fleeting distraction
When the sun sets this all falls apart
A twisted reflection

Never forgive, the one that has blackened
your heart
Blame not yourself, for they had hidden
well their flaws
Never forget, they were rotten from the start
Blame not yourself, deception was their art

Tears glisten in toxic neon light
Know that whilst you're here, to never go
out at night...

I greet the day with open arms
The nights stains are long gone
For hours I will wander
Before neon lights tear all asunder
Track Name: Worlds Apart
Under the pale grey
Through the burning haze
I hear the words I want to say
The voice is not my own
But it makes the same desperation known

So I'm up here looking down
And I'm now so far away
I'll just cut myself loose
Please let me drift away

Under the burning sun
Through the hopeless void
I think of words I should have said
But the time has come and gone
I'll hold this sorrow for so long

So I'm out here looking back
And I'm now so far away
Will our paths cross again some day?

Dredge thoughts from our tortured past
Obvious now that this could never last
How we used to be is dead and gone
A light through the fog has shone
And showed me that you and I are done
Track Name: 고구마
You make this so difficult sometimes
You commit so many little crimes
But never feel like you've dropped the ball
I'll be here for you through it all

I will catch you when you fall
Track Name: Mountain After Mountain
How can I possibly meet your eyes like
this?
Your smile everywhere I turn, shining light
on a world I don't deserve.

I've travelled this far
I can't turn back now
Satisfy my obsession
Ignoring how much it hurts...

How can I possibly go on like this?
My sorrow grows with every turn, casting
shadow on your shining world.

"How dare you feel sorry for yourself
in this field of tragic golden tears"

Never meant to be
I accept defeat
I could wallow here forever, if i
could but i cannot

And we'll never toss the coin
No we'll never place a lock
I would stand and stare forever, if I
could, but I cannot

All I've wanted for so long
An addiction grown too strong
I could stand and stare forever, but for your
sake, I will not.
Track Name: Burning Zelkova/Princess Dethroned
I'm not a spoke in your fucking wheel
I'm not a bit part in your cliche tragedy
I'm bend my knee not for you're fucking needs
I'm just a victim (of you're) narcissistic greed

An inexhaustible well of love
Exhausted and sealed shut
A wish asunder, storm clouds rage above
Burn it down, untying is not enough

Her reign of misery is over
The well of sympathy dried out
The kingdom torn asunder
Her majesty cast out

Wrong to serve here, re-begin
Mistakes we made we will never make again
In her sorrow let her drown
New life a hammer to her crown

Tears I shed for you
I will never shed again
