Demo Magnetic Lyrics
(2008)
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Hi Guy (That Was Just Your Life)

Like a siren in my head and there is
No emergency
Like a blind man that is strapped into the speeding driver's seat.
Like a face
That learns to speak
When all it knew was how to bite.

Like a hurt that keeps me focused
Though I think I've gone astray.
Like a low grade nightmare that
I must awaken from each day.
Like a dream
A beautiful dream
Not worthy of, so I deny
Yeah.

You close your eyes and try to wish it all into place.
You never open them, so it passed you by.
You close your eyes, so you may never fall from grace.
You open just in time to say goodbye, oh.

Almost like your life.
Almost like your endless fight.
Struggling along.
Balancing in right and wrong.
Why is this so hard?
Always pull the joker card.
Almost like your fight.
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

Like a wound that keeps on bleeding to remind me not to think.
Like a [?] I'm being covered till
It's time to drink.
Like a puzzle
With missing pieces
And the box is thrown away.

Like a release from a prison
That you didn't know you're in.
Like a fight to live the past I prayed
To leave
From way back then.
Like a general
Without a mission
Until the war will start again

You close your eyes and try to wish it all into place.
You never open them, so it passed you by.
You close your eyes, so you may never fall from grace.
You open just in time to say goodbye, oh.

Almost like your life.
Almost like your endless fight.
Struggling along.
Balancing in right and wrong.
Why is this so hard?
Always pull the joker card.
Almost like your fight.
And there it went,
Almost like your life.

Yeah
Oh, yeah

Oh, yeah

Like a touch from hell to feel how hot
That it can get if you get caught.
Like a touch from heaven on this breeze
That brings you straight down to your knees.

Like a touch from hell to feel how hot
That it can get if you get caught.
Like a touch from heaven on this breeze
That brings you straight down to your knees.

Oh, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Yeah

Almost like your life.
Almost like your endless fight.
Struggling along.
Balancing in right and wrong.
Why is this so hard?
Always pull the joker card.
Almost like your fight.
And there it went,
Almost like your life.
That was just your life.

Neinteen (The End Of The Line)

Black Squirrel (Broken Beat & Scarred)

You rise.

You crash, then you're up again.

Casper (The Day That Never Comes)

Born to push you around
You better just stay down.
You pull away
He hits the flesh
You hit the ground.

Mouth so full of lies
Tend to black your eyes.
Just keep them closed
Keep praying
Just keep waiting

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
But the sun shine never comes.
No, the sun shine never comes.

Push you cross that line,
Just stay down this time.
Hide in yourself
Crawl in yourself
You ll have your time.

God I ll make them pay
Take it back one day.
I ll end this day.
I ll splatter color on this gray.

Waiting for the one
The day that never comes
When you stand up and feel the warmth
But the sun shine never comes.

Love is a four letter word,
And never spoken here.
Love is a four letter word,
In this prison.

Love is a four letter word,
And never spoken here.
Love is a four letter word,
Here in this prison.

And I will wait no longer,
I ll put an end to this, I swear.
This, I swear. The son will shine.
This, I swear,
This, I swear,
This sun will shine!

Flamingo (All Nightmare Long)

Luck. Runs. Out.

Crawling from the wreckage one more time.
This map is tattered, can't read the signs.
Full of [?] is rutted, hot to turn.
On the path of destruction feel it burn.

Feel safe... In the danger.
Feel good... In the bad.

Got the burning.
Got the speed.
Lose your turn, you crash and burn, you walk away.

Cause it...
Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong
Crashing bone, and you walk away
How many times can I hear you say?
Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong, yeah

Luck. Runs. Out.
You crawl back in,
But your luck runs out.

Luck. Runs. Out.

You love with my struggle, and I love of my pain [?]
Much needed to keep me down again
Don't allow myself to feel too good
Unworthy-me, couldn't if I could

Feel safe... In the danger.
Feel good... In the bad.

Got the burning.
I got the speed.
And lose your turn, you crash and burn, you walk away.

Cause it...
Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong
Crashing bone, and you walk away
How many times can I hear you say?
Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong, yeah

Luck. Runs. Out.
You crawl back in, but your luck runs out.

Till you crawl back in,
Deep in your obsession.
Sailed to crash and burn.
This is your confession.

Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong
Crashing bone, and you walk away
How many times can I hear you say?
Ain't no good when there's nothing
Ain't no good when you can't go wrong, yeah

Luck. Runs. Out.
Crawl back in, but your luck runs out.

German Soup (Cyanide)

Strode through graveyard rows
Row after row
Stone without soul
Or sorrow

Empty are they,
Death, won't you let me stay?

Empty are they,
Death, won't you call my name?

angel head
I'm already dead.
It's just the funeral
I've been waiting for.

angel face
Mother full of grace
Touch me so I'll be together, forever, and ever, and evermore

Crawl, a lonely crow
I think he knows
I'm lonely too
So lonely

Empty are they,
Death, won't you let me stay?

Empty are they,
Death, won't you call my name?

angel head
I'm already dead.
It's just the funeral
I've been waiting for.

angel face
Mother full of grace
Touch me so I'll be together, forever, and ever, and evermore

Is that rain or are they tears?
That has stained your concrete face for years.
The crying, weeping, shedding knoll
It's fall to winds are [?] to fall.

An air of freshly broken ground.
A concrete angel lit right down
Upon the new stone with my name
It's peace at last, oh, peace at last!

Empty are they,
Death, won't you let me stay?

Empty are they,
Death, won't you call my name?

angel head
I'm already dead.
It's just the funeral
I've been waiting for.

angel face
Mother full of grace
Touch me so I'll be together, forever, and ever, and evermore

UN3 (Unforgiven III)

How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?
Set sail to sea, but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure.

Was he the one causing pain
With his careless dreaming?
Been afraid, always afraid,
Of the things he's feeling.

He could just be gone.
He would just sail on
He ll just sail on.

How can I be lost, when I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold,
How come it's got so cold?

And how can I be lost, when my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you,
When it's me I can't forgive?

These days drift on inside this fog
It's thick and suffocating.
His sinking life, outside its hell.
Inside, intoxicating.

Ships run aground. Like his life,
The water's much too shallow.
He goes down, down with his ship,
Sinking in the shadows.

Now a castaway.
They've all gone away.
All gone away.

How can I be lost, when I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold,
How come it's got so cold?

And how can I be lost, when my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you,
When it's me I can't forgive?

Forgive me.
Forgive me not.
Why can't I forgive me?

Set sail to sea, but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure.
How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?

How can I be lost, when I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold,
How come it's got so cold?

And how can I be lost, when my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you,
When it's me I can't forgive?

Gymbag (Judas Kiss)

When the words have all been said
When you made up all your bed
When the codes have all been cracked
When you double-back your tracks

So, what now?
Where go I?

When it seems it's all said and done.
When the storm is up and gone (up and gone)
When the battle has moved on (has moved on)
When the races have been run (have been run)
When the songs have all been sung (have been sung)

So, what now? (So, what now?)
Where go I? (Where go I?)

When it seems it's all said and done.

Stop the fire
Stop the fire
Spot the wire
Come on, stop the fire

You drank the dirty water
You put the fire out
You drank the dirty water
You put your fire out

When the room has hit so clean
When the scenes have all been seen
When the rows have all been cleared.
When the fears are all unfeard.

And what now?
Where go I?

When it seems it's all said and done.

When the pieces have been matched (have been matched)
When the itches have been scratched (have been scratched)
When the courses have been run (have been run)
When the songs have all been sung (have been sung)

So, what now? (So, what now?)
Where go I? (Where go I?)

When it seems it's all said and done.

Oh

Stop the fire
Stop the fire
Spot the wire
Stop the fire

You drank the dirty water
You put the fire out
You drank the dirty water
And you put the fire out

On your feet, or on your knees.
Freedom is just one of these.

Stop the fire
Stop the fire
Spot the wire
Stop the fire

You drank the dirty water
You put the fire out
You drank the dirty water
You put your fire out, yeah

Ten (My Apocalypse)

Claustrophobic
Crawl out of this skin
Heart explosive
Reach in, pull that pin

Ain't no one gonna watch the road? (Attention reckless)
Ain't no one gonna slow the road? (Impassion reckless)

So I cross that line
Pushing myself
Daring myself
Scaring myself on the suicide lane

Deadly impulse
[?] at the wheel
Death magnetic
Pulling closer still

Ain't no one gonna hold the border? (Insanely reckless)
Ain't no one gonna give the order? (Inanely reckless)

So I cross that line
Pushing myself
Daring myself
Scaring myself on the suicide lane

I scare myself

Oh, crushing metal, ripping skin.
Tossing body, mannequin.
Spinal blood, bleeding gas.

Mangle fleshes, snapping spine.
Dripping bloody valentine.
Shatter face, spitting glass.

What makes me drift a little bit closer?
Dead man takes the steering wheel.
What makes me know it's time to cross over?
Dead man takes the steering wheel.

See through the skin, the bones, they all rattle.
I start to see the end in me.
Flesh falls away, the bones, they all shatter.
I start to see the end. In. Me.

Claustrophobic
Crawl out of this skin
Heart explosive
Reach in, pull that pin

Every moment
Flashes before my eyes
I wake up screaming
Life is on denying

Ain't no one gonna search the racket? (Intentionally reckless)
Ain't no one gonna get the message? ([?] reckless)

Mm, I cross that line
Pushing myself
Daring myself
Scaring myself on the suicide lane

Pushing myself on the suicide lane.
Daring myself at the suicide lane.
Pushing myself on the suicide lane.
Carrying myself on the suicide lane.
