Track Name: Bandaid over bullethole
bandaid over bullet hole

this is the end of our odyssey
and this no is nothing less, than a broken down and tortured yes

it's all just politics to you, dodging bullets run right through

monday nights longing to be like those sunday morning tragedies

cut my hair and change my name, get a new tattoo and stake my claim
start again


we didn't need to be clichés and we didn't have to walk away
but we're nothing more because a bandaid won't stop the bleeding when the bullets are flying high


yeah this is truly bon voyage and you know the star you wanna be
doesn't really matter much to me

all that dies will walk again unless it's flushed right down the drain

the dirty canvas in your hand, painted lies of the promised land

cut my hair and change my name, get a new tattoo and stake my claim
start again


we didn't need to be clichés and we didn't have to walk away
but we're nothing more because a bandaid won't stop the bleeding when the bullets are flying high

Track Name: Ghosts
Ghosts

Been here too long and I'm leaving
joining the ghosts on the empty streets
Children of the whores and beggars that used to be me
used to be free

We were the heroes of yesterday
so close to the end yet so far away
Love is a tomb - I am a ghost

we came real close to believing
but ended up like ghosts in the street
an army of liars and sinners that used to be free
used to be me

We were the heroes of yesterday
so close to the end yet so far away
Love is a tomb - I am a ghost

We were the heroes of yesterday
so close to the end yet so far away
Love is a tomb - dead in the womb

Love is a tomb
I am a ghost
Dead in the womb
I am a ghost

Been here too long and I'm leaving 'cause our love couldn't keep me alive
Track Name: Halo (Should have been)
Halo (should have been)

cover her with lies
let her stand on roses
make her dance along
'til she knows the song

gently close her eyes
let her hear the voices
make her sing along
'til she knows the song

tarnished skin
mannequins
a safety pin
right where the halo should have been

candy bar
superstar
bleeding scars
right where the halo should have been
yeah that's just who we are...


show him where to be
show him where the wolves go
make him play along
'til he knows the song
Track Name: Driven
Driven

making lans to be a star in my living room
she want to shoot out through the atmosphere - a sonic boom
there's no weakness in her line of defense
she wanna dominate the present tense

she change the channel, grabs anther who is just like me
puts the leash on, waves the whip so he won't disagree
suck his blood to turn her into what she wanna be
she's getting ready for a major attack and once she's started there's just no turning back

So driven
oh yeah
So driven
you are
So driven
yeah yeah
So driven, yeah i know you gonna reach the top

Getting closer to the sunshine and the walk of fame
yeah she's the self-proclaimed queen of hearts in a poker game
she got aces hidden up her sleeve, playing dirty is just a way to achieve

and now she's getting ready for her grand debut
she found another little monkey man to subdue
and now she'll stick to all the stars like a bad tattoo
never betting on the same number twice, the bank is crumbling when she's rolling the dice

So driven
oh yeah
So driven
you are
So driven
yeah yeah
So driven, yeah i know you'll be a number one
Track Name: Room 101
Room 101

One more gone, no flowers will make a tombstone go away
when dead dogs in the rear-view just pass me by
and speakers are pumping freedom is slavery
will my blood leave your conscience when I die?

They use love to close the door
then the truth becomes the hangman
Locked in Room 101
they use the stains under your own shoes
Yeah they steal your dreams – but all the bad dreams’ still your own…

One more gone, no letters of forgiveness will calm the dead
when all that’s left of love is words on stone
and choirs are singing ignorance is strength. Hallelujah!
will my blood leave your fingers when I die?
Track Name: Vermont Overdrive
Vermont overdrive

the walls are down, castle's burning
innocence has disappeared and scavengers are the heroes of the day

seeking out the vultures chambers the needle and the damage done
is the gentle art of loving without lust

I can break on through - i just need you alive
I can break down too - when flesh and blood collide
It'll just be me and you - and we'll swallow the light
like Vermont Overdrive

the mind is gone, no more shelter
ride with demon chemical, get on up and swing the devil's dance

I can break on through - i just need you alive
I can break down too - when flesh and blood collide
It'll just be me and you - and we'll swallow the light
like flowers, when shined upon
but when the lights are out, nothing grows
Like Vermont Overdrive


I can break on through - i just need you alive
I can break down too - when flesh and blood collide
It'll just be me and you - and we'll swallow the light
like flowers, when shined upon
but when the lights are out, nothing grows
Like Vermont Overdrive
