Track Name: Soul Strip
I know that you, you pretend to be so tainted
Look at your face just an empty space of grey
Your mask is old, the graffiti blurs your features
Life’s a box that you labelled POA

Hold your words don’t try to simulate
you know that I’ve seen you stripped to your soul
You can’t hide that second’s hesitation
though you make out you’re so in control

Chorus
Behind the whitewash
Behind the lies
I’ve seen through your little masquerade
All in your eyes

You lost your way since the day you stopped believing
Put back your trust in the universe
Instead you’re just drifting, wasting, dissipating
You don’t make the grade, it’s time you paid attention

I see you turning, you’re burning, you’re learning
that life isn’t always unkind
Get what you’re making, no faking, no breaking
You know it’ll all be just fine

Chorus
Behind the whitewash
Behind the lies
I’ve seen through your little masquerade
All in your eyes

Don’t leave it till it’s too late
Strip down exposing your soul
Track Name: Warship
I fall
fall inside
fall
where no-one can

see it
as I worship
at the altar
at the shrine inside my mind

Not a trace
of humiliation
on my face
Standing tall, watching you
Pure distain
coating my devotion
Breathe the pain
a reverence you will never know

dear
Hate is such a simple word dear
Execrate your every move

Hiding
my emotions
my prostration
holding in my every vow as I

see the way your brilliance
turns the ground beneath your
feet to pearls and diamonds
On my knees I crawl and clutch

On your war ship

I fall
fall inside
fall
where no-one...

Maybe there’s a reason that I
love to hate your guts
Idolisation as I spit in your eye
Maybe you’re the reason for my
crossed personality
Veneration of your tainted ass

I worshipped you
I worshipped you
I worshipped you
I worshipped you
Track Name: Fatality
Take your life out on the line
for your king, your captain or whoever asks you
Iron out the creases in your armour
and be sure to wear your eye-catching hat too

Why don’t you take your mother-loving life out on the line

Journey through the mouth of hell
Shooting stars epitomise futility

They burned you out
They turned out your light

Give me youth and life
I’ll return
nothing

I’ll suck out the best pieces of you
and I’ll point them at our enemy
Give up your brightest and best
cause my appetite cannot be satisfied

Hey, you stand on the front line
It’s just a formality
We don’t really give a shit
about you

Piece of shrapnel and strange-coloured debris
are flying past your head
Holding your weapon, your last dying hope
that you’ll ever get back to where you once called home

Journey through the mouth of hell
Shooting stars epitomise futility

They burned you out
They turned out your light
They burned you out

Give me youth and life
I’ll return
nothing

Nothing in return
