Ghost Nation


We live in a wind swept hell
Where dust and death are neighbours
We hide in a perfect storm
Not even god remembers

We run from the wars of man
From everything you are and will be
We are invisible
We are the dead ghost nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleanse our sins
Have you ever seen death with your own eyes?

We live in the great unfound
Where thought and ghost still wonder
We drift on the drifting sand
Where horrors of the past still linger

We hide from the world of man
From the cruelty of that defines you
We are the wind and cries
We are the dead ghost nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen God with your own eyes?

We represent the fame
We are whispers in god's name
We are the heat that burns your skin
We're the cold that lets pain in
We're the wind that blinds your eyes
We're the machine that haunts your lies
We're the nightmare when you sleep
We're the guilt that old menÖ keep

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night rolls on
And we heard God laugh
When the righteous came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen me with your own eyes? 


Bed of Thorns


I'm waiting in the dark
Waiting for a dark light
To show me the way
I'm hiding from the world
Trapped by my ambition
Drowning in my fear

You're welcome to stand in my place
And you're welcome to feel what I feel 
You're welcome to live my life
And you're welcome to sleep in my bed of thorns

I'm walking through the dust
Pulling out splinters
Of things that never last
I'm easily forgotten
There is always someone
Better than the past

You're welcome to stand in my place
And you're welcome to feel what I feel 
You're welcome to live my life
And you're welcome to sleep in my bed of thorns

You're welcome
You're welcome
You're welcome
You're welcome 


My Name Is Ruin


When they called me broken, I knew
When they called me evil, I knew
When they called me ruin, I knew
I would always find my way to you

When I beg forgiveness, they knew
When I beg for mercy, they knew
When I beg for nothing, they knew
I would always find my way to you

My name is ruin, my name is vengeance
My name is no one, no one is calling
My name is ruin, my name is heartbreak
My name is lonely, my sorrows and darkness
My name is ruin, my name is evil
My name's a war song, I sing you a new one
My name is ruin, my name is broken
My name is shameless, I'll tear you wide open

When I called you poison, you knew
When I called you shameful, you knew
When I called you a liar, you knew
I would always find my way to you

I'll show you ruin, I'll show you vengeance
I'll show you no one, and no one is calling
I'll show you ruin, I'll show you heartbreak
I'll show you lonely, my sorrows and darkness
I'll show you ruin, I'll show you evil
I'll sing you a war song, I'll sing you a new one
I'll show you ruin, I'll show you broken
I'll show you shameless, I'll tear your world open 


The End of Things


Is that a voice calling me softly?
Nothing in here is quite how it seems
Is that a whisper, touch on my fear?
Am I awake or lost in old dreams?

Everything's so cold
The air is so still
There should be nothing here to see
Is this a warning?
Like in the black book
There can be no one else but me

I see a darker shade of darkness
I hear a shadow hide in the light
I feel a suffocating tension
Within a terrible desire

Everything's so cold
The air is so still
There should be nothing here to fear
But I am breathing
A child's laughter
Can any part of this be real?

Everything I work for
Everything I long for is always just to far
Everything I hope for never comes to be
Everything I bleed for burns a scar on me
Everything I fight for leaves a bitter taste
Everything I cry for laughs into my face
Everything I scream for barely knows my name
Everything I'd die for will die just the same
In here with me

Is this the truth of your forgiveness?
Are you the strangers stood at my door?
Are you the end of things come calling?
Are you the answer I had wished for?

Everything's so cold
The air is so still
And there is nothing here but me
If I belong here and this is mercy
Then there is no place I'd rather be

Everything I work for
Everything I long for is always just to far
Everything I hope for never comes to be
Everything I bleed for burns a scar on me
Everything I fight for leaves a bitter taste
Everything I cry for laughs into my face
Everything I scream for barely knew my name
Everything I'd die for will die just the same
In here with me


And It All Began with You


I know your voice 
And the words you speak lie 
I know your face 
When you're trying to hide your fears 
I know your breath 
When a thought makes you cry again 
I know you well 
And I've seen your tears

And it all began with you 
I was born the day you came to me 
And it all began with you 
On the day you made the world 
When you whisper my name I'll be with you 
When you reach out your hand I'll be with you 
When you walk to the light I'll be with you 
When you stand before god I'll be with you

All that we are 
Is more than I dreamed 
All that we shared 
Is more than a life can hold 
All that we have 
Is more than we'll ever need 
All that we lost 
Is nothing but time

And it all began with you 
And it ends for me the day you leave 
And it all began with you 
So today we stop the world 
When you whisper my name I'll be with you 
When you reach out your hand I'll be with you 
When you walk to the light I'll be with you 
When you stand before god I'll be with you


When the World Comes Apart


I'm not a hero's story
I'm not a traitors lie
I'm not everything they said

I'm not here to save you
I'm not your confessor
My sins alone could wake the dead

But do you understand
Nothing can make it better
Nothing can make it go away

And do you understand
That we are lost to ruin
And this will be our end of days

And when the sun fell down
And when the moon failed to rise
And when the world came apart
Where were you?
Were you with me?
When my light burns out
And when my fire is cold
And when my breath is the wind
Where will you be, dear God?

I have no forgiveness
I have a heart of stone
I am a lesson born of greed
I am torn and twisted
I am a broken bone
I am what you made of me

But do you understand
That none of this will matter
Nothing can take your pain away

And do you understand
That everything is shattered
And so the whole world ends today

And when the sun fell down
And when the moon failed to rise
And when the world came apart
Where were you?
Were you with me?
When my light burns out
And when my fire is cold
And when my breath is the wind
Where will you be, dear God?

And when the sun fell down
And when the moon failed to rise
And when the world came apart
Where were you?
Were you with me?
When my light burns out
And when my fire is cold
And when my breath is the wind
I will find you, dear God 


Mercy


I know 
I should have told you
Be careful what you wish for
I know
Who you are 
So I remind you
How you came to be here

Oooo ohh
Oooo ohh

You wont
Remember my pain
Your politics are screaming
You wont
Know my name or my forgiveness
Mercy's overrated

No oh oh Mercy
No oh oh Mercy

How long did I suffer for you here?
For a lifetime
And how long have I waited for you here?
So patiently

Oooo ohh
Oooo ohh

I see
You'll understand now
Nothing ever leaves here
We are quite alone
But if you pray hard
Maybe God can save you

No oh oh Mercy
No oh oh Mercy
No oh oh Mercy
No oh oh Mercy 


What God Intended


Save me from the world
Oh, save me from your hell
Oh, save me from the kindness
 that will save me from myself


I could say there is no-one there
I could say that my life is shattered
I could say that I almost cared
I could say that it almost matters
And I don't know

Save me from a life of meaning
Save me from a death with feeling
Save me from all those offended
Save me from what God intended
For me 


Pray for the Pain You Serve


I belong here where the world ends
I belong here where all hope ends
I belong here with the waiting
With the haunted, with the never seen
I belong here with the faithless
We are no one we are nothing at all


I will be here when the storm ends
I will sleep here when my time ends
I will cry here when the dead sing
Will you save me? Will you save me?
On my knees I'll pray to something
I don't know you I don't know you at all

Can you see me
When the wind blows through my soul?
Can you hear me
When the scream is all I know?
Can you see me
This is all that I deserve
Can you hear me?
I pray for the pain I serve you

I belong here where the shame ends
I belong here where all life ends
I belong here with the fallen
Here is no where, here is everything
I belong here with the broken
We are lost and we have nothing to lose

Can you see me
When the wind blows through my soul?
Can you hear me
When the scream is all I know?
Can you see me
This is all that I deserve
Can you hear me?
I pray for the pain I serve you 


If I Said


If I said I was a painter would you love and comfort me?
If I said I was a soldier would you cry a tear for me?
If I said I was a poet would you share your hops with me?
If I said I was a dreamer would you share your life with me?

If I asked you for forgiveness would you smile and wonder why?
Would you say that you believed me or would it all fall down?
Would it all fall down?
Is it over is it over now?

If I said I was a liar would you lose your faith in me?
If I said I was mistaken would you share the blame with me? 
If I said I was a memory would you still remember me?
If I said I was a warning would you shy away from me?

If I asked you for forgiveness would you turn your face away?
Would you say I broke you heart and would it all fall down?
Would it all fall down?
Is it over is it over now?

When a new tear falls
When I hear you cry softly
I would give the world to change the past
And when you walked away 
and I saw what I was losing
only me to blame I wondered why why why

so it all comes back to haunt me
like a song that sings your name
and it burns here to remind me
that it all comes back as pain
when I asked you for forgiveness and the words drifted away
I watched them float in empty silence as it fell down
As it fell down
It was over 
It was over then


Broken


If you had seen
You'd understand
If you had seen
You'll break like me

If you had seen
All the things that I've seen
You'd scream like I screamed
I know

If you had seen
You'd feel like I feel
Empty and broken
I know

I've seen the sky on fire
Seen the oceans dry
Seen the mountains fall
Seen the whole world die


Cold


So here we are that place again
Where the light just bleeds away from you
So here we are, so suddenly
Are your words so hard to find?
Do the lies you told seem shameful? 

And do you feel so cold
And do you feel so cold

Iíve seen you 
Cry your tears but for who?
And Iíve seen you 
Lost in thought where do you go
Iíve seen you 
Forget Iím still here and so
Iíve seen you 
Everything that youíve tried to keep from me
Truth it was always far away

So here we are you turn again
And the path you tread is hard to find
So here we are, at war again
And your choice is clear to see
And your war has left no place for me

And do you feel so cold
And do you feel so cold

Iíve seen you 
Cry your tears but for who?
And Iíve seen you 
Lost in thought where do you go
Iíve seen you 
Forget Iím still here and so
Iíve seen you 
Everything that youíve tried to keep from me
Truth it was always far away

So here we are
Iím lost again 
And feel so cold
And feel so cold
And feel so cold
And feel so cold
