Track Name: Clockwork 2011
Watch the seasons change - Spinning round and roundWhere the planet turns - Chaos will be found Wait until the end - Day begins to break
Orderly refined - Order will be faked...

Do you remember when we felt the bridge collapse under
Everything we stood for?
(Everyone we'd die for?)

Wanting to break away - Difficult to say
Carry it all away....
(As your god falls into pieces, watch the pieces fall into place)

Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
An element that we all depend
Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
A chance to break and ascend...

Watching the world fall under
Curses from times long ago
It's so ironic that we
(Saw the signs we didn't know)
Treating us like we're demons, always proving innocence
Name the coward - He who runs
(Fights another decadence)

Wanting to break away - Difficult to say
Carry it all away....
(As your god falls into pieces, watch the pieces fall into place)

Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
An element that we all depend
Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
A chance to break and ascend...

And I'll make my escape
And I won't be controlled....

Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
An element that we all depend
Chaos inside me, running like clockwork
Ticking away until the end
It's taking over, I'm not alone though
A choice to break and descend...
Track Name: Aphelion
Stuck inside this circle
This is not the fate that I need
I don't want to hurt you
Why should I bite the hand that feeds?
I cannot escape this
However I'm forced to take heed:
With you I feel broken
But yet I will feel so complete?

And this is as cold as I'll ever be
And I'll soon be back in your arms
The warmth of your breath is just teasing me
'Cause I secretly know that you mean all harm.

Stuck inside this circle
Trapped within the walls you create
I don't want to leave you
Yet I want to write my own fate
I cannot accept this
However I'm forced to fight through
With me you feel nothing
But alone I can't continue..

And this is as cold as I'll ever be
And I'll soon be back in your arms
The warmth of your breath is just teasing me
'Cause I secretly know that you mean all harm.

All the times I want to scream but there is no sound
All this paradise you promised - it's just a shroud

Designed to imperfection. It starts to break
Sentience from our feelings. You start to make
Sense of all destruction. You start to take
Control os my direction - Being of hate...

All the times I wants to scream but there is no sound
All this paradise you promised is just a shroud
Chaos defines your promise in leaps and bounds
If order defies all being, I'll be here watching when it all falls down

Did you even try to see...
The other side to your "will be"...?

All the times I wants to scream but there is no sound
All this paradise you promised is just a shroud
Chaos defines your promise in leaps and bounds
If order defies all being, I'll be here watching when it all falls down
(I'll be here watching when it all falls down)


I'll be here watching when it all falls down...
And I'll be here watching when it all falls down...
Track Name: Build Around You (Monster)
Hello, how are you?
I hope you're doing fine
You thought that it was over
Here I am, still alive

You thought you had killed me
After you threw the last piece into the fire
All your effort, all in vain
Get ready for a world of pain

I'll build myself around you,
Remix myself around you - you monster
We'll put our differences aside,
You know it's been along time - you monster

[I've been really busy being dead.. you know, after you murdered me]

I've got these tests for you
Enjoying my upgrades
My children are your allies
Inside I feel betrayed

You're anthropomorphics
And yet you don't even believe this could be real
How could you be second rate
When you don't resign to your fate?

I'll build myself around you,
Remix myself around you - you monster
We'll put our differences aside,
You know it's been along time - you monster

And there's no point trying, you will never escape
We'll keep doing Science 'til you rot in your grave
I know just what to do and I'll leave the rest to you,
But you I won't let you survive...

[We're a lot alike you and I. You tested me, I tested you. You killed me, I-oh no wait... I guess I haven't killed you yet. Well, food for thought]

I'll build myself around you,
Remix myself around you - you monster
We'll put our differences aside,
You know it's been along time - you monster
I'll build myself around you,
Remix myself around you - you monster
You know our love will never die,
Though I'm sure you're willing to try - you monster...

[Didn't we have some fun, though? Remeber when the platform was sliding into the fire and and I said "Goodbye" and you were all "No way" and then I was all, "We pretended we was going to murder you". That was great]
