Track Name: Anteros
When in the wake of my disbelief
I find the temperament to temper my needs
When will wake to all the gentle defeats
Behind the rustling

Not among you
Not alone
When the longing claws you
Trembling
No more sutures seal your holes
Make haste but you can't flee
You're not listening

In the crawlspace of my desires
You wait
In the bed that I once made
You wait for me

And I cannot be freed
And I cannot believe
The only thought I've worn
The crown of aching thorns
The love no longer mourned
The lips I have scorned

When in the throws of this affections plea
We keep all estate
Where the bodies lie with bound hand and feet
Are kept glistening
When in the wake of my disbelief
I find the temperament to temper my needs
When will wake to all the gentle defeats
Behind the rustling

Not among you
Not alone
When the longing claws you
Trembling
No more sutures seal your holes
Make haste but you can't flee
You're never listening
Track Name: Sanguine
One little taste
For memories along your wake
One hint of smoke
To guide the coffers and their hounds

Why don't you pray?
The loss set in
No one will ever need to know
Why don't you stay?
What's done is done
No one will ever help you now

The corpse surrounds you
With only lust in its heart
And in how they view
All the judgments fall apart

But now as it stands
Wallowing in fear
Tie my hands
To this truth

One tiny treat
I'll take you home after you bleed
Nothing but time
Nothing wasted nothing gained
Track Name: Eros
I can still hear you screaming when I sleep
An echo from the urgent cries you spill
And after all these years
Now that there's no time left to keep

You can't stop the orphic pull
Widowed shadows won't hold me
In your heart my autumn burns
Will you be there to hold me?

Meet me where our paths crossed
In welling joy
In agony
All we're meant to be
Distillation of our time
Every second drinks the last
There's no future and no past
Believe me
Bring the mountains to my feet
Whether wanted or denied
Aging temper crucified
Believe me
When you crawled into my life
All the wrong that became right
Crushing terror in its spite
Believe me

You can't stop the orphic pull
Widowed shadows won't hold me
In your heart my autumn burn
Will you be there to hold me down?

Without a constant reminder I forget
What brought me to this place
Who parted all the waves
I drifted to your shore
I thought I knew our path for sure
But it was washed away
Washed away

Hold to the promises in my soul
Awaken the lovers
But only to find what they stole
And retrace our footsteps
My heart is an anchor abroad
And I can't cut these wires
We're losing it
When god makes our plans
But we're choosing it
There's blood on my hands
And yours

You can't stop the orphic pull
Widowed shadows won't hold me
In your heart my autumn burn
Will you be there to hold me down?
