Track Name: Bait
You bite the bait I'm casting
You dance on the end of one fine wire
Don't you know I'll swallow you whole

You're treading water like you're lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine

We swim blindly by design
Lured by the follies that we hide
Should've seen love's anvil artifice

I'm treading water like I'm lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine

It's so fetching in its trade
It's the blood of which I'm made
We're the pawns inside its game
I'm the lure, and you're the bait
It's so fetching in its trade
It's the blood of which I'm made
We're the pawns inside its game
I'm the lure, and you're the bait

You're treading water like you're lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine
(You're treading water like you're lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine)

I'm treading water like I'm lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine
(I'm treading water like I'm lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine)

You're treading water like you're lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine
(You're treading water like you're lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine)

I'm treading water like I'm lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine
(I'm treading water like I'm lead
I blame it on this filthy heart of mine)
Track Name: Whiskeyblood
Buttoning my ribs in like a birdcage to my pride
Hiding flutter-bombs inside a thick bulletproof hide

Oh this whiskeyblood of mine
It's got me crawling out my skin at night

I've got a fever from our lips on mine
Let's get this clear
i'm gonna make you mine

Loosening my lips but got me choking on my tongue
Baby I don't mind it if you watch me come undone

Oh this whiskeyblood of mine
It's got me calling out your name at night

I've got a fever from our lips on mine
Let's get this clear
i'm gonna make you mine

Come on now make me simmer
Whiskeyblood-flint in my veins
It drowns me like a river
And you are like kerosene
Come on now make me simmer
Whiskeyblood-flint in my veins
It drowns me like a river
And you are like kerosene

I've got a fever from our lips on mine
Let's get this clear
i'm gonna make you mine
Track Name: The Folly
Is it me or is it crowded in here
My skin feels tight like I wear the weight of the room

A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out

Is it me or is the air getting thick
I mean my tongue feels tied like an animal caged behind my teeth

A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out

A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out
A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out
A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out
A fool is she who gapes her mouth and her heart falls out
Track Name: Red Handed
My skin is as thick as the sleeve of my shirt
No this tapestry won't cover me up
'Cause I feel your dirty hands unstring my spine
You do nothing but smile 'cause you don't see the damage of you've done

The shape of your grip paints itself on my skin
I'm too delicate for anyone to hold
The words roll off your tongue like knives to my throat
You do nothing but smile 'cause you don't see the damage of you've done

What the hell was I thinking
Letting you in my bed
You left me there hazy as quick as you came
Spilling out of your fingers like a warrior's paint
Does it make you feel like a man
To watch me squirm naked and afraid

Been feeling you buzzing around in my brain
Just like that my body sets itself on fire
When you come around I just choke on your name
You do nothing but smile 'cause you don't see the damage of you've done
Track Name: Angere (The Tempest)
Last night I dreamt I was swallowed by a beast
She wore the same face as me
But her name was Angere

As the sky opened her eyes
Her zephyr stirred up a wave
She wrapped around me
A vast of blue
An echo of of a refrain

Last night I dreamt I was swallowed by a beast
She wore the same face as me
But her name was Angere

I was fishing for the reaper
Drifting aimless for days
She pined for me like a feral siren
With embrace like a hurricane

And so I descend
Into her arrest

Her gale howled in my head
Made the sky turn her curtain black
She rolled up her tides
And just like that I was holding the hand of the tempest

Last night I dreamt I was swallowed by a beast
She wore the same face as me
But her name was Angere

Her name was Angere

Her gale howled in my head
Made the sky turn her curtain black
She rolled up her tides
And just like that I was holding the hand of the tempest
Track Name: One Fell Swoop
He licked his lips
and sealed my debts with kisses like knuckles
I'm swallowing fists
His hands on my hips
I just fold like the sand
spilling fast through his finger tips

In one fell swoop
I was damned by a devil without a horn

And I froze as he wrangled
A lasso 'round my head
It feels so damn good to be tamed
Feel his breath down the back of my neck
It's electric
Like dancing with and open flame

In one fell swoop
I was damned by a devil without a horn
He'll drag me to hell
With a wicked look in his eyes like a criminal

Won't you take me down
Take me down
'Cause it feels so damn good to be tamed
Won't you take me down
Take me down
'Cause it feels so damn good to be tamed
It just feels so damn good to be tamed

In one fell swoop
I was damned by a devil without a horn
He'll drag me to hell
With a wicked look in his eyes like a criminal
