Track Name: Keep Them Close
Hollow man, how did you get so shallow?
Do you ever wonder what it's gonna take to break that spell

Between the bricks you hide all your secrets
But the walls, they tell me everything
Though they have no more space to keep it
Though they have no more space to keep it

Ivy like veins wrap your mast, a feign
Your lies are a light to your disguise

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Little one, answer me this:
How did you build your walls so high
Does it make you feel big?
Locked away, you're masked by charm

Between your teeth escapes all your secrets
Cavities can't hide among the white
Though you have no more eyes to see it
No, you have no more eyes to see it

Ivy like veins wrap your mast, a feign
Your lies are a light to your disguise

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Light spills, Light fills in dark space
If you could only see your face
(hide your face)
Woah-oah Woah-oah Woah

Deceit is stacking bricks below
Forever vines are growing Skyward

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Light spills, Light fills in dark space
If you could only see your face
(hide your face)
Woah-oah Woah-oah Woah

Look around you all the walls have caved in
Look around, you are alone
You are alone
Track Name: Then, the Sky Opened Up and Swallowed Them Whole
(Fooled you once, Fooled you twice
Now this city....)

Vague were their eyes
As if withholding little secrets
Fixed upon their need to quench a thirst
"Just one drink's enough for me
But i can't speak for the shadow beneath me"

Creeping, Crawling, Desperately

Make, Make me believe
That i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

They took her eyes for the
Beauty she sees in all things
Viles of tears worn proudly around their necks
Memories of loved ones lost
And the girl that got away
And he's left with nothing
Everyone is left with nothing

Creeping, Crawling, Desperately

Show me all of your darkness, your secrets
"Don't you know there's no escaping me?"
You are the fountain, I'll make you belive
Make you believe

Make, Make me believe
That i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

Wash your greedy hands with me
Well, i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

(Fooled you once, Fooled you twice
Now this city....)
"Ladies and Gentlemen, the sky is falling"

I've created a monster
Rage overflowing, you're done taking from me
As the Earth pulls you under
I'll show you empty when you are burried

Left with nothing, Watch them flee

Make, Make me believe
i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

Wash your greedy hands with me
Well, i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine
Track Name: The Transparent
She whispers softly in his ear
(and i'm taking it all)
is he the only one she wants to hear?
As She refuses to repent
She'll be restless, Breathless
Searching for what she missed

"Give me your eyes, For I see not with my own
Give me your lungs, I breathe each breath not my own
I'll take your soul, I need something to call my own"

Desperate and lonely, She's dead in despair
She moans and she groans in the deathly still air
Hollow to all but the ones who can see
That without someone else she would cease to be

Stolen from his mind, Passions of his kind
Nothing left behind
Haunting his ear:

"Give me your eyes, For I see not with my own
Give me your lungs, I breathe each breath not my own
I'll take your soul, I need something to call my own"

Like a leach she feeds on the host
She has hold and she wont let go (I wont let go)
Draining slowly, his life sucked away
And his eyes sewn tightly shut where he lay

She refuses to repent

"Give me your eyes, For I see not with my own
Give me your lungs, I breathe each breath not my own
I'll take your soul, I need something to call my own"
