Track Name: Psycliq (featuring Jon Wiltzen) - Low Exposure
Stand still, love, let me take your photograph
I promise I’ll release you and I’ll take no more than that
Don’t you listen to the victims, don’t you know I’ve been framed
Don’t you shudder in the darkness, don’t you need a little fame

All the lies your life has ever shown will fade to black and crumble
Lay a little low, unfilter all your childhood fears
Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know

Lasting love won’t develop every time
But in between the empty scenes I’ll fill more than your mind
Won’t you come a little closer, won’t you ever come around
Won’t you wind a little tighter, won’t you bend until you’re bound

All the lies your life has ever shown will fade to black and crumble
Lay a little low, unfilter all your childhood fears
Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know

Don't look down or
Heed the sound of
City lights or
Tokyo nights I'll
Take you where They'll
Never care I'll
Make you weep and
See the deep

All the light your life has ever known will brighten your exposure
Lay a little low, unhinder all your darkest years
Take it slow and I will show you everything I think you need to know
Track Name: Psycliq (featuring Jon Wiltzen) - He Who Saw The Deep
King, strong and cruel, people plead, gods help us
Man, wild untamed, to stop the king, the two will go journeying
Quest, long and hard, to the forest hill, slay the giant demi-god
Dreams, fire storms, raging bulls, heroes see only victory

Chorus
Fierce giant, bound by prison winds, "beg for mercy," man boasts
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

Goddess lusts for king, he turns away, ignites her wrath
Bulls, from heavens high, fights in vain, none can stand before the king

Bridge
Tonight I dreamed of gods
Seeking vengeance on mortals
Why must we pay for their transgressions?
Why must I be the one to suffer?

Chorus
Dark fever, draining soul, prayers for the death of a warrior
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

King, grieves for man, fears his life, the gods are a fickle thing
Seeks eternal life, survivor of, a flooded history
Hears his tale of woe, through endless storms, the gods then smiled on him
King, stay awake for seven days, and you will be young again

Chorus
Eyes heavy, sleep taking hold, the king will dream
No hiding, no escaping death, but given one last chance
On oceans floor, plant of life, stolen by the serpent's night
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

Outro
We pay for all transgressions
I am the one to suffer
I am the one
Track Name: Monsters (Electric President Cover)
In through your window the sky will fall.
You'll trap the stars in jars and line them along your walls.
As the moonlight fills the veins beneath your skin,
You'll hear us knocking, oh, but you won't let us in.

Because you've got no friends,
And you've got no heartbeat.
Your insides are rotten now.
So there's nothing to fix.

But you said it often, before you were lost,
That it's only a day. That it's only a day.
But now you're a monster, and your backbone is soft.
Because you threw it away. Because you threw it away.

You called me out; I shrugged you off.
I don't have the time to watch you bash in all their skulls.
'cause there's a new boss in town, his heart is black, but his hands can reach through anything.
Stick your head in the ground. You might just dodge the guns.

But I'm not your friend.
And I will not fix you.
My insides are hollow now.
So you're all on your own.

But I said it often, before we were lost.
That it's only a day. That it's only a day.
But now I'm a monster, and my blood all runs cold.
Because I threw it away. Because I threw it away.

But now we've forgotten. And we've sold our blue skies.
But there's nothing to say. We'll be gone in a day.
And yeah, you can't take it with you. But I can sure try.
Now there's nothing to say. I'll be gone in a day.
Track Name: One Armed Remix (Project 86 and Plumb mashup)
Play On, Play On
Track Name: Famous Blue Raincoat (Leonard Cohen cover)
It's four in the morning, the end of December
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
You're living for nothing now, I hope you're keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You'd been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without Lili Marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobody's wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see Jane's awake --

She sends her regards.
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I'm glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear

-- Sincerely, L. Cohen
Track Name: Own Little World (Private Beach Mix) (Celldweller remix)
Mutual sight, Mutual sound
Mutual struggle, for shared ground
It`s safe, to say, they`ll try to take from me
I`m just another one for them to break down

Steeped in denial, the daily grind
Dream of a world for me and my kind
It`s safe in the alternative reality
So stick your standards where the sun doesn`t shine

They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say
Promise the world then take it from you anyway
They`ll break you down making your vision fadeaway
It`s time to go: get outta my space

Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine
There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Be anyone, do anything I`d ever want to try
Time doesn`t exist here, I will never die

Explain the reasons, Explain the rhymes
It`s not required, inside our minds
It`s safe to try, no need to justify
Or take their guilt trip at the end of the line.

They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say
Promise the world then take it from you anyway
They`ll break you down making your vision fadeaway
It`s time to go: get off of my case

Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine
There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Be anyone, do anything I`d ever want to try
Time doesn`t exist here

Slip into a world where the air I breathe is mine
There`s nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind
Come with me into it and you know what you will find
Time doesn`t exist here, I will never die

(My Own Little World)

They`re for themselves, it doesn`t matter what they say
It`s time to go: get out of my face
Track Name: My Belruel (Maid of Raven Hair Mix) (Tycho Brahe remix)
'twas the twelving day of Everfair
when fell my maid of raven hair
beneath her cloven standard of the wren
and damn that roiling goblin horde
we'd almost slain the overlord
but i could never roll an elf again

"The Queen of Bells and Battle-Downs"
she wore the title like a crown
Foes so deep a man would drown, but she still stood alone
a princess and a duchess both
and sworn to nine prestigious oaths,
her duties, they would take her to that twisting spire of stone

Against his tower, a silhouette
She called like a coronet
And the green sea of his armies burst from warrens far below
The pacts he'd made with demonkind
Had rent his thin and tattered mind
And hellish princedoms occupied the arrow he let go

They took her through the crowded square
And laid her at the temple stair
The sorcelled barb of Arudair beyond their healing arts
there stands a circlet on her brow
that turns the blades of men around
But if Belruel could hear me now
This song would pierce her heart

'twas the twelving day of Everfair
when fell my maid of raven hair
beneath her cloven standard of the wren
damn that roiling goblin horde!
and damn their hell-bound the overlord!
but i could never roll an elf again
