Track Name: Siren Song (Reimagined)
Breathe you in... Like cigarettes, you'll be my gust of moribund air but when we're glued you do no wrong. Won't you be my friend? I think I know how this will end but I cannot help myself.

Siren song - It's been a year since I've been free. It seems so long but you still have a hold on me and I cannot escape your memory. Wish I could help myself.

Should have plugged my ears; no one was there to tie me down. I disappeared when you lured me in with your song. Naught but flesh and bone left to rot with all the rest but I couldn't help myself.

Vexing virgin of the Earth, I will cut your wings and hold your head under the blue so you can breathe it in and when your face matches the sea, I'll be the first to leave you.

I just couldn't help myself, couldn't help myself. Pulled by every cell in my body's well. Couldn't find myself falling where you fell. Couldn't help myself.
Track Name: Holding On (Reimagined)
All of my smiles are lost in photographs
When did I become an imitation of myself?

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight

All of my friends have gone and left me here
All alone I fall into the flood of hearts, drowning

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight

I don't even know if I can see you, I can't see you
I don't even know if I can hold you in the moonlight
I don't even know if I can see you, I can't see you
I don't even know if we can burn away so bright

All of my best lines are locked in my dreams
All of my favourite songs don't exist
All of my pain multiplied by every word you never said
And all I ask is one more chance to throw it all away

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight
Track Name: Doctor, Please (Reimagined)
Doctor, please, I really need your help
I fear I'm falling and don't trust myself
I'm on my knees begging you for the answers
Paralyzed by anxieties

And I've tried burying tragedy
But it's clawing away at me

If I write it in a song
Will you take it
And break it
And right all the wrong?

If I hide it in a song
Will you find it
Unwind it
So I can move on?

I cannot sleep... My brain will not allow it
Overcome by the urgency
So, doctor, please, cauterize all the cancers
Instrumental lobotomy

And I've tried burying tragedy
But it's digging away at me

If I write it in a song
Will you take it
And break it
And right all the wrong?

If I hide it in a song
Will you find it
Unwind it
So I can move on?
Track Name: Better (Reimagined)
I tried to be the perfect friend
And I learned perfection is a flaw
So I take back every word I said...
To make you feel better

And I wish for every time I went out of my way
To do or say something to make you feel okay
You'll lay away a thousand nights
Regretting everything you didn't try
To make me feel better

And now I'm gone
And I'm not ever coming back
Just keep moving on
I have never been better

You tried to put me on the shelf
To take me down when it best suited you
But now I'm gone - expired; you left me here to rott
Bacteria has turned me sour
And now you'll never find better

And now I'm gone
And I'm not ever coming back
Just keep moving on
I have never been better

And I know your soul is holding onto me
And I know your soul is holding, haunting me
Track Name: Break Me (Reimagined)
These head films, they're filthy
My mind's eye - the mud
These demons, they haunt me
They're all out for blood
You're hard-press against me
Laughing as I fall
I'm waiting for something
In no time at all

Break me, tear me open
Hurt me - my insides cut, gouged and exposed
The only way I know

Can you taste these black lies?
They live in my mouth
And each time you kiss me
More maggots fall out
Like clockwork, I spiral
Rise up, fall again
Good god, I just realized
Even I'm not my friend

Break me, tear me open
Hurt me - my insides cut, gouged and exposed
The only way I know

I couldn't breathe when you said
"All the lies were once true"
I thought I knew...
You were the worst thing
That ever happened to me
The best thing
That never happened to be
Track Name: This Song Is Not For You (Reimagined)
I told myself I would never write this song
It wouldn't be my first broken promise
I have tried to white it out, break a string
But I just end up saying what I don't mean

This song is not for you
And everything you do
This song is not for you

I know not what to say or how to say it
But these words keep falling out to lay this straight
I'm wronged so you can live forever in song
But this ends right now, no, I can't let you win!

This song is not for you
And everything you do
This song is not for you
Track Name: Remember Love (Reimagined)
Remember the night I stood and sang outside your window?
Remember the rain that filled these empty roads with air?
Remember the way we made this love to last forever?
Never letting go in fear of losing faith?

Let's forget the pain and fall and live in love
Like we're fifteen again and life will never end
If we believe we can, there's nothing we can't do
We'll make it thought, just take my hand

Remember the passion, fascination with each other
Remember the misery that never could defeat
I remember the voices speaking softly without any sound at all
Finding solitude between the cells behind the cellar door

Do you remember the way we loved, Love?
