Track Name: To Begin
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

I look into your eyes
I see the fear inside.
You want nothing more
than to run away from me.

The ashes from
the fire drift
into the sky.
I'll just watch you
drown tonight.

The taste of your flesh
still remains in my mouth.
I must taste the blood
to forget.

The flowers break
the mirror of the past.
Watch the silver queen
burn it all away.
Track Name: The Burning World
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

Losing everything in sight
Confidence has now turned into fright
This is my destiny,
It must come to an end
This game has gone on too long
I can no longer pretend

I've handled everything wrong
I made you play along
Replaying the moments in my head,
Was this supposed to last?
I should have known
It would come to an end

I can no longer live with myself
One must repair oneself
Nobody seems to be around
I need to find some therapy
I'm watching everything spiral down
Track Name: Fatal Hour
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

I tried to reach for you
I worked hard for this
You turned away slowly
You treat me like this
I don't know what made me
Why did it turn out like this?
I lost my freewill
Laced with fear

I though you'd believe me
What made you think wrong?
My last fatal hour
Is coming too soon

I tried to reach for you
Track Name: 7:21
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

The innocence that I once had
has been lost.
I can't find my way back in the dark.

Fingers that beckon me,
voices that call.
Corruption will put
an end to it all.
I can't find my way back in the dark.

I can't find myself.

Creatures of the night
rape my identity.
I can't find my way back in the dark.

I can't find myself.
Track Name: Desperate Living
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

You push me over the edge
One last time
You push me over the edge
One last time
I meet you you downtown
On the street
I don't know
What's come over me
You push me over the edge
One last time

You push me over the edge
One last time
You push me over the edge
One last time
I want nothing
To do with you
You think I got
Nothing to do
You push me over the edge
One last time
You push me over the edge
One last time

Lovely thing you sell your soul
You're gonna die young
Before I let you go
You're gonna die young
With the beauty of nothing
Rock and roll won't save your soul
Track Name: Ministry of Truth
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

I've identified the walls
Of my prison
I now hold the key
Remnants of my past life
Continue to haunt me

Throw all our
Memories down a hole
Destroy them and erase the past

All the lonely men and women
Dress in their gray uniforms
Watched every move I made
They listened to
Every thought I had

Throw all our
Memories down a hole
Destroy them and erase the past

She lay in my arms late at night
The moon bathed over our skin
If I hadn't caught a glimpse
Of her with my eyes
Would I instead
Have walked away?
