Track Name: The Spell
my eyes are heavy, the air is stale
the noose is ready, but I will fail
a living nightmare that keeps repeating
a certain magic that keeps me breathing

how do i break the spell?
how do I break it?

familiar voices speaking in tongues
familiar faces devoid of love
familiar nights go unseen
familiar sights now obscene

how do I break the spell?
how do I break it?
Track Name: My Original Sin
Walk alone, lost inside my worried mind
My every flaw picked apart by hungry eyes
I, the cursed. I, the plagued. The disposable fool
Hurry home, lock the door, tend my deepest wounds

And there's nothing I can do
No there's nothing I can do
I change the bandage when it bleeds through
But there's nothing I can do

Avoid the light when I can, it's the source of the pain
In the shadows of the night I am born again
When day breaks, night fades, all that's left is the moon,
Hurry home, lock the door, tend my deepest wounds

And there's nothing I can do
No there's nothing I can do
I change the bandage when it bleeds through
But there's nothing I can do

My original sin is that I live
It's my original sin they won't forgive
Track Name: D.T.W.
It's not a new kind of hate
It's been with us for eternity
It's not a new kind of fate
It's the same as it used to be

So many sisters we've lost
So many sisters we've yet to lose
So many hang from the cross
So many hang from a bitter noose

Do we not deserve love?
Do we not deserve decency?
Do we deserve all the bloodshed?
Do we deserve the complacency?

I'm so sick of the fear
And the hold that it has on me
I'm so sick of the fear
And the hatred imposed on we

I'm so sick of the fear
Track Name: Garden Of Eden
we stand toe to toe
separated by oceans of pain and fear
in this cycle with you
round and round and round
will we never learn?

every word you say
cuts down to the bone
they're familiar blades
every word I say
moves us further and further
we can never go back

to the Garden of Eden (go back)
to the Garden of Eden (go back)
before love was defeated (go back)
to the Garden of Eden

and still we try and try
i'm stubborn in love and you're no stranger to games
let's take it from the top
we'll recreate this world but we can never go back

to the Garden of Eden (go back)
to the Garden of Eden (go back)
before love was defeated (go back)
to the Garden of Eden
