Track Name: Runaway
As light descends to dusk
Stars drown out the day
The world turns to a shade
A shade of vicious gray

I try to say my peace
I call with no reply
You're somewhere far beyond my reach
Where I cannot survive

I'm facing all the facts
I'm owning all my fears
All the things that I've become
In a matter of three years

One lie became a truth
And another became sincere
And the things I thought I wanted most
Suddenly seemed unclear

I just can't runaway, runway
Runway from you
I just can't runaway, runway
Runway from me
Track Name: Time is Running Out
I’ve got a secret
I need to tell you
It’s getting harder and the pressure’s bearing down
You’re getting closer to me
Now I’m gritting my teeth
It’s getting harder to breathe

Another moment
Another lifetime
Each day that passes is one closer to the end

The dark is falling and I’m not home yet
Just drawing lines in the sand
They’re blowing off in the wind

I’ve got secrets
To tell you
We’re getting closer and our time is running out

I’ve got secrets
To tell you
We’re getting closer and our time is running out
Time is running out
Track Name: Moonlight
Still as shining night
And soft as satin lace
Your breath is in the air
And the fear is on your face

The moment's come and gone
To turn and run away
You whisper out three words
Like the last you'll ever say

The highway lays ahead
The city fades behind
Fading fast like memories
A story in rewind

The lines begin to blur
The pavement's slick with doubt
The wheel begins to turn
And the moonlight's running out

I feel your soft touch in the moonlight
Hush talk after midnight
She's midnight's mistress and we wither in her hands
Suck lust from a snakebite
Where is our white light?
(That's what you get for) Wide-eyed faith

Suddenly the sound
Is met with blinding light
Music cuts the air
It's the creatures of the night

They're howling at the sky
And beckoning those hellbound
They call us to eternity
Like lost souls to be found

They feast upon the flesh
They drink up all the wine
They whisper secrets of the past
And become something divine

You and I consent
The wind becomes a gale
I swallow blood that's not my own
And I pass beyond the veil

I feel your soft touch in the moonlight
Hush talk after midnight
She's midnight's mistress and she withers in your hand
Suck lust from a snakebite
Where is our white light?
(That's what you get for) Wide-eyed faith
Track Name: The Ghost on the Phone
I'm coming up for air
To breathe in morning light
I'm sensing a lack of time
A wrong overcoming right

The ghost is on the phone
He's telling me what to say
Preemptive words are said
And the stage is set to play

And I'm not sure who I am
I'm not as perfect as I thought

I'm falling back to earth
I crash and burn alive
I'm waking up to truth
A truth I can't survive
To be vain and content
Filled with all my pride
Selfish and alone
It hurts to realize

Lost in selfish thought
Forgotten all I've sought
I put to bed each dream
And all these things I've seen

Who's speaking for me now?
Who's at the drivers seat?
The darkest truth might be
That the ghost is inside of me

And I'm not sure who I am
I'm not as perfect as I thought

I'm falling back to earth
I crash and burn alive
I'm waking up to truth
A truth I can't survive
To be vain and content
Filled with all my pride
Selfish and alone
It hurts to realize
Track Name: Through the Fog
I am the space I occupy
I'm not getting tired 'til I'm ready to die
I'm the monster, I'm the hero
In the mirror I'm appearing
Through the fog

I am the space I occupy
I'm not getting tired 'til I'm ready to die
I'm the hero, I'm the moster
In the mirror I look taller
Through the fog
