Track Name: Lost in Babylon
One hundred thousand bad intentions
Imprisoned jailors, drunken sailors
Someone to blame us, someone to hate us
Someone to tame us, god claim us
Look down on us, god tame us

It doesn't mean that I've lost my faith
Me and god just haven't spoken yet
Maybe both it and I got lost in Babylon

Lost in Babylon

It doesn't mean that I've lost my faith
Me and god just haven't spoken yet
Even hippies want their share of the violence
And the house of god is so perfectly silent

Lost in Babylon
Track Name: Cowards Get Devoured
The heart dies a slow death
Life's nothing but a whore's chore
Short-term tell-tale
To no avail you tuck your tail

The weak and the willess
Legs too brittled to take a stand
Empty words fall short
When it's the root that lacks heart

Cowards get devoured
Here's a sword for you to fall on
Cornered with self-hate
A dirty disguise you've paint

The release date's now or never
The end date's gone forever

Built yourself inside the walls
Ten feet high seeing nothing at all
When you finally get around to open the door
Everyone's long gone

You are all alone
Down your surface crept
You are all alone
You're done, you're done, you're done
And I hate it
Track Name: Mind’s Gone
Blues, hounds, crossroads and two black eyes to hold the secrets in
Send each thought to sleep one by one and hold the secrets in

A million ways to go insane
My mind's gone, my mind's gone
I've shut myself for far too long
My mind's gone, my mind's gone

Haunt, guilt, grief wears a man down, isms matter not
Beliefs, love, a man's hate the truth will out and mind becomes none

A million ways to go insane
My mind's gone, my mind's gone
I've shut myself for far too long
My mind's gone, my mind's gone
Track Name: Pantheon
In the pursuit of happiness
I appear missing
The silence is so perfectly silent
Universe take me

The world is wild and open
Pain, imperfection, impermanence
To be nothing is to be something
And the universe will take you
