Track Name: The Long Goodbye
Don't mistake a fuse for a wick
If death is coming, let it be quick
Light a candle
Curse the darkness
Either way I tried my hardest

Throw away the key
It’s fine by me

See the tears of fear
Beg for it to disappear
Watch hope wither on the vine
It happens every day, the long goodbye

Can you recognize the pain?
Too late to try
You let the moment fly
Too late you turn your head
You know you've said
The long goodbye

I’ll keep treading water
Out past the waves
See how far I can get
From this place

No saving grace
Lost all face, fought to erase
Left with the disguise
And it’s no surprise

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Can you recognize the pain?
Too late to try
Track Name: Death Instinct
The runt of the litter
Dying to prove he’s no quitter
Running with the dogs of winter
As the pack gets thinner

It’s getting harder to keep up
Harder and harder to keep your head up
Better to be fed than fed up
So you keep your mouth shut

Cut to the quick
Like a ton of bricks
Biting at the heels
Broken on the wheel

Take a look in the mirror
Try to see a little clearer
Nothing left you hold dear
Nothing left to fear
One way from here

One way it ends
One way it ends
As you descend

You never saw the other side
You never made it back alive
You just let it ride
It’s for the gods to decide
How you live and die

No matter where or when
One way it ends

The goal of all life is death
Anything for one more breath
Track Name: Eyes To Heaven
Shadows falling farther
Skies are turning red
Days are getting shorter
Hanging by a thread
Making up the ending
A story you’ll never tell
Around the edges bending
Pretending all is well

Eyes to heaven
Ear to the ground
Salvation severing
Flesh no longer bound

Years move on and upward
Leaving us behind
Nothing left to wonder
Nothing to cross your mind
Don't be afraid, my brother
For I'll be right along
In the name of the father
Into the great beyond

Eyes to heaven
Ear to the ground
Salvation severing
Flesh no longer bound
A storm not made to weather
The vessel tossed aside
An ocean given center
Ever immortalized

With an eye to heaven
And one on the horizon

I’ll keep watch for you
Until the sun has set
I’ll keep a fire burning
Until I pay my debt
