Beneath The Skin Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Crystals

Lost in skies of powdered gold
Caught in clouds of silver ropes
Showered by the empty hopes
As I tumble down, falling fast to the ground

I know I'll wither so peel away the bark
Because nothing grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

Making waves in pitch black sand
Feel the salt dance on my hands
Raw and charcoal coloured thighs
Feel so cold and my skin feels so paper-thin

I know I'll wither so peel away the bark
Because nothing grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

But I'm okay in see-through skin
I forgive what is within
Because I'm in this house
I'm in this home
All my time

Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Woah, Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

Human

When the word weigh heavy on the heart
I am lost and lead only by the stars

Cage me like an animal
A crown with gems and gold
Eat me like a cannibal
Chasing me, I'm thrown

Breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in
Breathe in, breathe out
And let it in
Once awoke, it will slowly crawl
Beneath the skin
So breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in

The womb is still shadows form a grill
If I lose control I feed the beast within

Cage me like an animal
A crown with gems and gold
Eat me like a cannibal
Chasing me, I'm thrown

Breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in
Breathe in, breathe out
And let it in
Once awoke, it will slowly crawl
Beneath the skin
So breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in

Cage me like an animal
A crown with gems and gold
Eat me like a cannibal
Chasing me, I'm thrown

If I could only let go

Hunger

You are right, I'll move on
But my lungs feel so small
I couldn't breathe if I tried
I lay my head on the floor
My beating heart wanted more
But I'll keep it in and keep you out

I'm drowning, I'm drowning
I'm drowning, I'm drowning

But for the longest time I knew
There was nothing left for us to do
But I tried, oh, I try
And in this quiet company
There is nothing staring back at me
I'm in need of the sound

Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn't you
Voices disappear when you are speaking, in somber tunes
I will be the wolf and when you're starving, you'll need it too
Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn't you
It isn't you, it isn't

Let me go cause you are just a shade
Of what I am, not what I'll be
But in this quiet company
I forget sometimes just how to breathe
Fill my lungs with the sound

Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn't you
Voices disappear when you are speaking, in somber tunes
I will be the wolf and when you're starving, you'll need it too
Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn't you
It isn't you, it isn't

I'm drowning, I'm drowning
I'm drowning, I'm drowning
I'm drowning, I'm drowning
I'm drowning, I'm drowning

Wolves Without Teeth

Open my chest and carve out the spine
I'm giving you all
I'm giving you all
Swallow my breath
And take what is mine
I'm giving you all
I'm giving you all

I'll be the blood
If you'll be the bones
I'm giving you all
I'm giving you all
So lift up my body
And lose all control
I'm giving you all
I'm giving you all

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You'll say you're from another world
Sinking in my seat, oh
You're feeding on my energy
Letting go of it
She wants in

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me
Without teeth

I can see through you
We are the same
It's perfectly strange
You run in my veins
How can I keep you
Inside my lungs
I breathe what is yours
You breathe what is mine

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You'll say you're from another world
Sinking in my seat, oh
You're feeding on my energy
Letting go of it
He wants in

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me
Without teeth

And you can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You'll say you're from another world
Sinking in my seat, oh
"You're feeding on my energy
Letting go of it" she once said

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me
Without teeth

And you can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me

Empire

Feel the ocean as it breathes
Shivering teeth
See the mountains where they meet
Smothering me
As the wind fends off the waves
I count down the days
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

I find comfort in the sound
And the shape of the heart
How it echoes through the chest
From under the ground
As the hills turn into holes
I fill them with gold
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

And I paint your body black
I hide in your hair
And you're staring back at me
Like I wasn't there
As our bodies become stills
We welcome the fear
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

Slow Life

What are they talking about
On the weekends?
Lost in the forest of this heart
Is a foreign still

Why are they shaking their heads?
We're stuck in slow life
Is it the beating of the chest?
That makes us fear the rest

We're slowly sailing away
Behind closed eyes
Where not a single ray of light
Can puncture through the night

You caught me in the tide
And I caught you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

You saw me in new light
And I saw you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

Between the daylight
And the deep sea
Lies a swarm of silhouettes
Floating aimlessly

But I'm a mountain
I am a killer
You'll get lost and buried deep
If you swim with me

You caught me in the tide
And I caught you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

You saw me in new light
And I saw you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

So look at you look at me
All because we need to know
So look at me look at you
All because we'll never know

So look at you look at me
All because we need to know
So look at me look at you
All because we'll never know

Organs

I am sorry this is always how it goes
The wind blows loudest when you've got your eyes closed
But I never changed a single color that I breathe
So you could have tried to take a closer look at me
I am tired of punching in the wind
I am tired of letting it all in
And I should eat you up
And spit you right out
I should not care but I don't know how

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong

I am sorry for the trouble, I suppose
My blood runs red but my body feels so cold
I guess I could swim for days in the salty sea
But in the end the waves will discolor me

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I cough up my lungs
Because they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
Because I don't want to stay in the dark

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I cough up my lungs
Because they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
Because I don't want to stay in the dark

Black Water

I need nothing
To travel the sea
I need nothing
I need nothing
But there's something
Eating beneath
Black water
Take over

Swallowed by a vicious vengeful sea
Darker days are raining over me
In the deepest depths I lost myself
See myself through someone else

The strange silence
Surrounding me
Grows closer
Feels colder
But I'm to ready
To suffer the sea
Black water
Take over

Swallowed by a vicious vengeful sea
Darker days are raining over me
In the deepest depths I lost myself
See myself through someone else

Swallowed by a vicious vengeful sea
Darker days are raining over me
In the deepest depths I lost myself
See myself through someone else

Swallowed by a vicious vengeful sea
Darker days are raining over me
In the deepest depths I lost myself
See myself through someone else

Thousand Eyes

Unto this storm, unto this storm
Unto this storm and wait
I can't control wither in wonders
Flowers that lose their shape

I lie awake and watch it all diffuse
Like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all diffuse
Like thousand eyes

I'll be the call, I will be quiet
Stripped to the bone, I wait
No, I'll be a stone, I'll be the hunter
Tower that casts a shade

I lie awake and watch it all diffuse
Like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all diffuse
Like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all diffuse
Like thousand eyes

I am the storm, I am the storm
I am the storm, so wait

I Of The Storm

If I could face them
If I could make amends
With all my shadows
I'd bow my head
And welcome them
But I feel it burning
Like when the winter wind
Stops my breathing

Are you really going to love me
When I'm gone
I fear you won't
I fear you don't

And it echoes when I breathe
Until all you'll see
Is my ghost
Empty vessel, crooked teeth
Wish you could see
And they call me under
And I'm shaking like a leaf
And they call me under
And I wither underneath
In this storm

I am a stranger
I am an alien
Inside a structure
Are you really going to love me
When I'm gone
With all my thoughts
And all my faults
I feel it biting
I feel it break my skin
So uninviting

Are you really going to need me
When I'm gone
I fear you won't
I fear you don't

And it echoes when I breathe
Until all you see is my ghost
Empty vessel, crooked teeth
Wish you could see
And they call me under
And I'm shaking like a leaf
And they call me under
And I wither underneath
In this storm

I feel it
And they call me under
And I'm shaking like a leaf
And they call me underneath
To this storm

We Sink

All those eyes on me
As I sink into the open sea
Color in my sheltered mind
Fill the gap between you and I

We under the sleepers
We bite our tongue
We set the fire
And we let it burn
Through the dreamers
We hear the hum
And say "Come on, come on, let's go"
So come on, come on, let's go

It's warm, the skin I'm living in
It creates and shapes what is within
So please look away, don't look at me
As we sink into the open sea

We under the sleepers
We bite our tongue
We set the fire
And we let it burn
Through the dreamers
We hear the hum
And say "Come on, come on, let's go"

We under the sleepers
We bite our tongue
We set the fire
And we let it burn
Through the dreamers
We hear the hum
And say "Come on, come on, let's go"

So come on, come on, let's go

I know that it's a waste of time
Chasing in the dark
But keep me in your clouded minds
'Til time ignites a spark

I know that it's a waste of time
Chasing in the dark
But keep me in your clouded minds
'Til time ignites a spark

I know that it's a waste of time
Chasing in the dark
But keep me in your clouded minds
'Til time ignites a spark

Backyard

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I live the life above
Hold me down
Hold me down
I live the life of letting go
Under a starlit night
I wrap myself in thin sheet of ice
I've had the start of crystallize

Find me in the backyard
Find me in the backyard
In the dark
Find me in the backyard
Find me in the backyard

Cuz you colour me clear,
Now what you, what you waitin' for?
Yeah you colour me clear,
Now what are you waitin' for?

See how my mind is tired
From blue to black
From white to gray
I'm burned the broken one
The drops illuminate and evaporate into a neon lake
I'ma be stand the vicious one

Find me in the backyard
Find me in the backyard
In the dark
Find me in the backyard
Find me in the backyard

Cuz you colour me clear,
Now what you, what you waitin' for?
Yeah you colour me clear,
Now what are you waitin' for?
Cuz you colour me clear,
Now what you, what you waitin' for?
Yeah you colour me clear,
Now what are you waitin' for?

Winter Sound

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Stop, you're cold against the skin
Take me in your arms when walls are closing in
And I run, I run, I run, awakening my heart
But you overwhelm my lungs and it's tearing me a-part

You and I will not be shaken!
By the winter sound
But my voice is suffocating
In the winter sound

Stop, I will take control
Bend the metal in-to shapes that I, know
And I run, I run, I run, further than before
I shake away the skin to saturate my, soul

You and I will not be shaken!
By the winter sound
But my voice is suffocating
In the winter sound

You and I will not be shaken!
By the winter sound
But my voice is suffocating
In the winter sound

And you scream, you scratch, you bite
You prey on my heart
And I know that you and I can never be a-part

You and I will not be shaken!
By the winter sound
But my voice is suffocating
In the winter

You and I will not be shaken!
By the winter sound
But my voice is suffocating
In the winter sound
