Assassin (Someday) - Absinthe Junk
Yeah these lines tell a story and a lie
Tell the time
A life too young to die
And all I know is these days go by with a pace too strong
And all I know is I bear the mark of sin

Relief sweats the end
Let me breathe you in
So why the lie
Assassin someday knows
Yeah, you'll be the end

So says the fool to love and to lose
Better than to never feel the use
And all I know is these days go by
Tainted away, I know how the story goes
I bear the mark of sin

Yeah, Relief sweats the end
Let me breathe you in
Someday I know
So why the lie
Assassin someday knows
Yeah, you'll be the end

Commercialized Waste - Absinthe Junk
I have walked lonely as a crowd of passersby
Sing their all too sweet painsong
That thing we feel in between love
Like bittersweet nostalgia
Once for birth and once for death
Blind by a thin ray of false hope
Suck the baby spoon
And eat the lies down your blissful throat

Forget your carbon matter
Forget your damn cheap charade
You'll miss the latter
So dance the dance, ignore the prance
Against the hot tin roof of fate
You'll never see outside their weight
No, you'll disapate
So sit back and enjoy their
Commercialized Waste

So you go confess your sins
Spill your soul to be saved!
This ain't no payback guarantee
You'll end up junked up like me
Shake hands with your maker
Stay up too late, drink the wine, dirty your mate
Suffer humanity, eat the lies 'cause the grass
it ain't greener on the other side

Death in the Afternoon - Absinthe Junk
When it aches
The weight crushes your heart
The responsible get lost
And you are all alone

When it burns
Your skin begins to crawl
Who cares, youíve lost it all
And nowhere is safe

And if my mouth wonít speak
Maybe the cables will
To paint a picture of you
White walls dream a death by afternoon

When it rains
You never will feel so alive

Come what may
To fools who smile blind
Who find solace in love
Whoíve truly lost the game

Because I scream inside
I donít know who I am

When it rains
You never will feel
So alive

Devilish Grin - Absinthe Junk
Dreams so dark you can't relax
Dreams that flood against the past
Your teeth grind, a fan that drones
A ritual that's all your own
The need flows through you like a cry
A wail of starlight against a tide

Choke up a smile just to pretend
To put on a face so you fit in
Hollow and all alone
A devilish grin to hide your soul

A need so strong you cannot breathe
A need that screams a symphonic shriek
And the dark passenger takes over time
So you survive

Choke up a smile just to pretend
To put on a face so you fit in
Force a facade to fit the mold
A devilish grin to hide your soul
You're never alone, never a friend
Hell hath no fury when you give in
You force a facade to fit the mold
A devilish grin to hide your soul

Devilish grin to hide your soul
Devilish grin, devilish grin
A devilish grin to hide your soul
Kill it, kill it
Save your soul

Dragonflies in Hurricanes - Absinthe Junk
Take in a breath
Breathe in the death, breathe in the pain
Let it out
Hell with your doubts
Hell with your ways
Stop running away from truths
We don't understand
Stop running away from the love
You could have had

Can never seem to get it right
Why don't we push it all away now?
Just go on and stand in your pain
Like dragonflies in hurricanes

Watching the town swell and die
Watching you drown
I watch you consume yourself
And all I could have held
Can never seem to get into your head of lies
Can never seem to get into your dark surmise

Never seem to get it right
Push it all away now
Like dragonflies in hurricanes
The end is on the way

Coming Soon

Precious Delirum - Absinthe Junk
Technological demons
Burrow deep inside of a freight train
Dancing lightly along demands
Of a maddening pain
And inside I feel as though I don't know I'm truly awake
Inside I feel as though
I don't know I'm truly sane

So ring
you ring me
Sweet dreams like Precious delirium in trade for sleep
Sing
you sing me
Black doves cry
The death you've wished over me

Black painted eyes
Of whores and lovers alike
Dream together for better days
live and let die
And inside I feel as though I don't know I'm truly awake
Inside I feel as though
I don't know I'm truly sane
It's over to you
So let me, let me sleep
'Cause your words
They eat away at my peace
It's over to you
It's over, It's all over to you
Back to black
Venom lack
Let me sleep
Dreamless to dream
Never will love with you
Let me sleep
Dreamless to dream

Road to Damnation, pt 2 - Absinthe Junk
Highway 67 south from heaven
Looks more like hell
You got me tangled and turned
Sweet evil could never tell
It's only a matter of time before we're found out
So kiss salvation good-bye
And drink to your fate
We got a front row seat for what this innocence ain't
(Come hell or high water / now or never / we'll set this place on fire)

Don't you feel chained down?
Breathe me in
This whiskey tastes of heaven
And your lips they taste like sin
And this road to damnation
Is the hottest road I've ever been

They try to teach to forgive
And to forget
Too bad I missed it
It's a lecture that I'll never get
So kiss your redemption
Kiss it good-bye
We got a firstclass ticket
To burn this white picket
There's corruption and need
In the heart of this seed

Don't you feel chained down?
Breathe me in
This whiskey tastes of heaven
And your lips they taste like sin
And this road to damnation is the hottest road I've ever
Yeah you're the bounty that's on my head
So drink me in
Yeah, I'm okay with this sin
So pass me the whiskey
And kiss this sweet sin
Cause this road to damnation is the hottest road I've ever been

Rust - Absinthe Junk
Move into me
Against all the odds
Find a spaceship to carry these sick needs
Ashes divide
Watch as they cry, glorified
Fall between
Cracks in the dust
Watch our hearts sweat and turn to rust
Ashes divide
Watch as they die

A nice night to die
A nice night for hell
And we scream, yeah
We burn like violins and While we rust
Our bodies turn to dust

yeah, Iíll forget the morning then
yeah, I'll remember the deal we made then
said we had it made it then?
Yeah, well I'll forget this bullshit then!
It's too late to
Confiscate and hide
Unclassified, controlling all your lies
Corrupting all we sought
It only counts if we get caught

A nice night to die
A nice night for hell
And we scream, yeah
We burn like violins
And while we lust
Our bodies turn to rust

Sunday Morning Breakfast Static - Absinthe Junk
(You) take a pass at me
(You) make it so I can breathe
(You) untie me from this anger chair
(You) do you got the stones to dare?

And you just want to break our stride
Well, get in line and open up your eyes

(You) take a swipe soul at my soul
(You) you calculate what I owe

They wonít take us alive
They wonít take us when we die

(You) preach away the sins of today
(You) Like godís too blind to say

And all the righteousness you spurt
Is not enough to knock us in the dirt

Truth we canít speak that cuts
This is for the ones that hate our guts
They wonít take us alive
They wonít take us when we die
They wonít take us
They canít take us
They wonít take us alive

You are whatís in your attic
And all I hear is static
You are whatís attic
Put it all to rest, weíre not alone
You are whatís in your attic
And all I hear is static
You are whatís attic
Put it all to rest, weíre not alone
All I hear is static
All I hear is static

Swear to Me - Absinthe Junk
I'm so completely sick of you
Couldn't care less about your point of view
Cause Every time I'm off my game
You find a new way to taint my name
And I'm sick of all your shit and lies
Sick of every way you plan my demise
So tired of being scared of you
Tired of everything you take away

Swear to me
Don't swear to god
Tell me what you really think
Tell me how terrible you think that I am
Call me negative and influenced
Call me anything you want
Cause I'm just a reflection of you

So you think you're someone new
Guess you can't see past your little lies then too
Cause everytime you're breaking down
Hope you know that I'm happy with the sound
Yeah I'm sick of all your twisted lies
Sick of everything you swear I am
So tired of having to live through you
Tired of everything you take away
I'm getting so I'm sad for you
Getting so I don't really care what you say and do
It's just so you hurt me I know
'cause you hate yourself and your purpose
Shame that you hurt us and all this on purpose
Why don't you back the hell off
Bite your tongue a little and save your breath
Crawl back under the rock from whence you came
Go back to your pointless little game

Sweet Vaccine - Absinthe Junk
Eyes wide shut
As loud as panic can
These lies are simply casual
And it hurts like hell
Living ghosts
As bright as morning's end
These days are simply lies
And they burn like hell
And this is my cabinet
There's nothing sacred in this place
And this is where my demons lay
And itís eating at
Itís eating at me

You're bleeding me
Take this one-way ticket
Riot away from these days
This might be the death of me
But I'll live this day
You'll be my sweet vaccine

Let lips sleep
So we can see the truth
Something's gotta give
And this hurts like hell
I'll live to tell
If just for the purpose
If it's everything that I crave
Than what makes the junkie made?
And these are my skeletons
There's nothing sacred in this place
I know it makes me wrong
And it eats at
It eats at me

You're bleeding me
Take this one-way ticket
Riot away from these days
This might be the death of me
I'll live this day
You'll be my sweet vaccine
You're bleeding me
Take this one-way ticket
Riot away
You will be the breath of me
I'll live this day
You'll be My Sweet Vaccine

Won't Lie - Absinthe Junk
