Track Name: Vamp Oscura - Star Lust
Wait, you're too late, you fucking forgot the date.
Why don't you check your heart rate and throw those numbers away.
Because you ignore the signs of all your desperate designs;
Inject the prize that will infect your mind.
INFECT YOUR MIND!

And the Star Lust in my eyes,
makes me realize,
there's a frightened boy behind a man's disguise.
And I love her because she loves the real me.
But I know that I'll just end up in misery, again.

To wait's a mistake, but your past you relate.
You need a clean slate, to start a new day, but...
Time keeps on takin' me, taking my mind away.
Time keeps on changing me, changing my mind.
Find, thought I found a way; found you, then
you went away.
I sought the better day: woke up on the ground.
So I stood up, but the rhythm wants me down, wants me down. So I joined it.
SO I JOINED IT.

And the star lust in my eyes, makes me realize.
There's a frightened boy behind a man's disguise.
Who I am is just so plain to me,
but not so plain to see,
Do I love her or do I love who she should be.

Star lust, left me in the dust.
Star lust, there's no one you can trust, for now.
Track Name: Vamp Oscura - Breath of Fresh Air
They might find you out today.
They might find us out.
And she might come Out tonight:
Sunny('s) days are not her nights.

Lead me on, away from you;
Make this lie true.
Blood runs, from red ta blue.
Lead Me on, lead me on...

What did your dad, do to you?
What did your father put you through?
What did your daddy do to you?
What did that fucker put you through?

You are a breath of me.
I am your pain.
You are the rest of me,
but we can't sustain.

And you are the death of me:
Your gentle rain.
And you are what's left of me,
And nothing remains.

You are a breath of fresh air.
Track Name: Trials
Woke up, alone in bed,
thoughts racin' through my head,
make me want to go to sleep again.

But I've got people to meet,
Got to hit the street.
It's not time to concede
defeat.

T.V. says it's all good.
Pop a pill, and change your mood.
Quite a jaunt to look so gaunt.
Take a walk around the block.

And my trials they haunt me.
And time, it taunts me.
I've been my only jury.
And I've never once been guilty.

But it's a game I'll never win.
And it's a game that'll start again.
'cause everything's a sin,
To be alive,
It's a sin to be alive.

How'd I end up this way, you say:
born again every day?
Well I'm not quite sure.

And I never told you how sorry I am.
'bout my old friend: the one that likes to pretend to
pretend that this is the end,

And I will never let it go, the thoughts about you and me and the way it oughta be!

So I'll wait for my fate to set me free!

But for now I stand trial for awhile.
So until then...Cry on Missy.

And my trials they haunt me.
And time, it taunts me.
I've been my only jury.
And I've never once been guilty.

But it's a game I'll never win.
And it's a game that'll start again.
'cause everything's a sin,
To be alive,
It's a sin (just) to be alive.
Track Name: A Thousand Days
Whatever was me has been sent out to sea.
Setting sails, like a lover's plea.
We make our ways through crashing waves,
And coral caverns with seaweed graves.
The sun it shimmers, on our crystal tombs.
And Mermaids greet us with open wounds.
The catch is just a catch, at 22.
We feed our families, but we take from you.

If she sinks, she sings, we'll catch her.
If she sinks, she sings.
If she sinks, she sings, we'll catch her.
If she sinks, she sings.

I've lived a thousand years, in a thousand days.
I tried to cut through this, obsidian gaze.
Our lives are measured in each, each passing phase.
And our worth is treasured in each, lashing praise.

I die, you die, but we carry on, with a sailor's song.
I lie, you lie, but we bury our lives in pretending that they're long.

The sea it sighs, with each each sunken cage.
Sunken eyes realize, we've lived a thousand years, in a thousand days.

Oh, I wanted so bad just to set you free.
Jaded hearts that tear us apart from, what will never be.
Like our wife and our kids, that we'll never get to miss.
And time is running into, the blue abyss.
With a quest just to find untouched, unchartered shore.
But the bodies have run dry:
There's no more to explore.
And wax has sealed our notes to home,
And our backs have broken into,
sea foam.

If she sinks she sings: We'll go down with her.
If she sinks, then she sings.
If she sinks she sings: We'll go down with her.
If she sinks she sings.

I've lived a thousand years in a thousand days.
And our lives are measured in each passing phase.

I die, you die, but we carry on, with a sailor's song.
I lie, you lie, but we bury our lives, in pretending that they're long.

The sea it cries with each crashing cage.
Crazy eyes, realize, we've lived a thousand years,'
in a thousand days.
Track Name: Vamp Oscura - New Shore
And she said, I'm coming back down again.
And I find, I do not have a friend, to help these feelings mend:
time to descend.
Descend.
To where night and nightmares loom.

She's in my dreams,
She's on my ceiling.
She's in my dreams;
She's on my ceiling.
(She looks into the looking glass, to see it pass away.
The ancient master of the past,
spoke of the ancient way.)

And he said, to look with eyes closed again.
And he said, to look with eyes closed.
And you'll find, you somehow found a friend,
To save you from your end.
With a heart to lend.
A heart to send (to).
Time to ascend.
Ascend.

In the ninth month of the moon.

She's in my dreams,
She's on my ceiling.
She's in my dreams,
She's on my ceiling.
She's in my dreams,
She's on my ceilin'.
She's in my dreams,
She's on my ceiling, it seems...
