Track Name: Mercury
I want you to lie to me
I don't need you to come clean
I still want you to pretend
But you've thrown that all away

So I guess this is the end
All because I saw your face
Shed my Brains and now I know

I'm alone
Track Name: Kiss
The taste is gray
It takes the sting from all the years
Lets it go

Emaciate
Devour the skin and sell the soul
Unfold

Please don't leave
I know
You'll get your kiss someday
If we divide
Know
You'll get your kiss someday

She's had enough
No one could love her so she'd say
Feels ashamed

I thought to keep you close would be enough but
You slipped away
Unfazed

Please don't leave
I know
You'll get your kiss someday
If we divide
Know
You'll get your kiss someday

In a fog
In a dream
You're in the clouds
You won't come down
I'm out of touch
We're out of time
You got your kiss now where's mine?
Track Name: Gateway Drug
Come on everybody quick
Come and cut me up and take a little and leave it
Cause I'm everybody's hit
You won't need me beyond the gateway to yonder
Need not seek me beyond the gateway and wander
You don't see me beyond a gateway drug

I want to make you go junk sick
Make you a fool for more and have you shiver anemic
But you choose your poison prick so
You won't seek me beyond the gateway to yonder
Need not seek me beyond the gateway and wander
You don't see me beyond a gateway drug

You don't see me beyond a gateway drug
So tear me into bits
Seal it with a kiss and burn me

You don't see me beyond a gateway drug
So take me in your grip
Caress me with your lips and burst me down

Long after the high has faded
Do you remember the feeling you found?
Cause you've been a bit distant lately
After you said that you'd stick around

Now your voicemail is keeping me down
But it's my only choice to hear the words from your mouth

That I'm a fool with half a brain
Or good things come to those who wait
Cause in my dreams I see your face
But this fever's keeping me awake

Is it my fault? Am I to blame?
I'm lost in your lover's game
If we don't touch and push away
Then I'm lovesick and outta range
Track Name: Alarms
Are you safe
Safe inside this dream?
We're a ways off then

Well I'll stand up today
I'm sailing off
Ah oh well

You'll definitely be saved
Though all that you see decays
Go on without me I'm brave
You'll definitely be saved

I'd rather save you
Than tear the world apart
But I still might

Yea it's so tempting
When your blood
Is all I have
To lose

So now I'm shaken up
Thinking I
Could be someone

See I could take it all
Say the word
Or will I save the world?

Deep down / Deep down inside / I know / Something about / Your life / Something about / Your son / Is something like me / It'll all / It'll all be fine / Deep down / Deep down inside / Do you know / Something is wrong? / Your son / Is something like me

Who will save us from alarms so loud?

Hello do you see it now?
We share a love

But now the world needs you
So if you can Change
You can lay low

Oh how they'll gather round
A thousand words
Could take you down

So now I'll pray to God
Say the word
And I will save the world

Who will save us from alarms so loud?
Track Name: I Don't Think
Never you fear
So save your tears
They won't like our faces

Farewell my friends
Our lives must begin
Shoot at 20 paces

Cause I don't think you're worth this
No I don't think you're worth it

Are you so sure
That you're so sure?
This world's too cruel for certainty

Didn't you hear?
We're all alone here
Time to prove your worth

Cause I don't think you're worth it
No I don't think you're worth it
Track Name: This Is Real (Kiss Reprise)
In a fog
In a dream
You're in the clouds
You won't come down
I'm out of touch
We're out of time
You got your kiss now where's mine?

Please don't leave I know you'll get your kiss someday
Track Name: Destructo
It's sinking in, you're not listening
Destructo and I'm the missing link
You wanna tell me off but it ain't the same thing
I'm taking off oh you're sickening

It took me some time
You took me to places where I'd never been

How dare you tell me that I wasn't there
Just tell me what I wanna hear

Tell me what I wanna hear

You're taking your time
You're taking me bad places oh
You're taking your time
You're taking your place

Now the glow is over what a shame
And even's out the window cause I'm sinking
No prisoners will we take
Set your missiles off I can take the hit

You took all my time
You took all I had well now that's everything

How dare you tell me that I never cared
I wish you'd just say what I want to hear

Tell me what I wanna hear

You're taking your time
You're taking me bad places oh
You're taking your time
You're taking your place

We knew it had to come to this but don't you think it's soon?
It's stranger after loneliness was all I ever knew
Love is such a mystery I never got a clue
When Mercury is full then we'll start living on the moon

I seem to fall in love once every city
So I'm moving up
