Track Name: Violette - Marooned and Blue
Hello
What are you doing here?
Are you lost my dear?
Like I am lost my dear?
Are you lost in here?

I colored outside of the lines
Smeared paint on the floor
Never knowing wrong from right
Left me crawling back for

Hear those footsteps
getting closer and I
hold my breath
The ghost of you and...

Looking up just to see
standing right in front of my eyes
fading memories
The ghost of you and me

Memories don't speak
Memories just sleep

I can hear you but this line is breaking out from underneath my feet,
I know that you're just a memory, memory
faded from growing jaded of the fits and the quits and the same old
Upon collecting my thoughts I realize
that reflection is erasing the past so I won't relapse, relapse
So in conclusion to rebuild my constitution,
I found a home in sanity and disillusion

I colored outside of the lines
Paint smeared on the floor
Not knowing wrong from right
Left me coming back for

Hear those footsteps getting closer, closer
Hold my breath
I've gotta hold my breath
The ghost of, the ghost of, the ghost of

Looking up just to see
Standing right before my eyes
Fading memories, fading memories
The ghost of you and
The ghost of you and me
Track Name: Telephone Lust
Oh no, where'd you go?
It's me, don't you know
I'm the one
you've been running from?

It's been weeks since you left
and my thoughts I must confess
leave me trembling
from nightmares

Your lust crawls through my veins
making me just a tad bit deranged, baby

And Sunshine, if you ever need anything remember, ask!
In moonlight, (I'm) marooned in a sea of thoughts reaching for lunacy

Your lust crawls through my veins
making me just a tad bit deranged, baby

Excuses, excuses
it's useless, excuses

Doesn't matter how many times
I can't get you to believe
Doesn't matter what I'm sayin
I can't get you to love me

Baby I promise you one day
You wll la-la-la-la-la-la-love me
And baby I promise you one day,
You will na-na-na-na-na-na-need me

Now that I've found you
I'm not gonna mess this up
I've done everything for you
I'm all that you needed
I'm all that you needed
I'm all that you needed
Track Name: Somnambulism
I'll tell you the story of a man
A man with a silver tongue
He tells you words that you can feel
A Casanova if you will

And as time moves forward we slowly sink in
Into the cracks, yes, these walls they cave in

Stand back, stand back don’t stab me with those dagger eyes
Stand back, stand back there is no time for your goodbyes

(Stand back, stand back, stand back, stand back, stand back)
“He’s not innocent”

You have been found wanted guilty as sin
Where do we begin?
Left by one man to judge and yet you still grin
Where do we begin?

And as time moves forward we slowly sink in
In between cracks, yes, these walls they cave in
Sweet Casanova I'm losing control
Sweet Casanova it’s time to let go

As time grows shorter they slowly creep in
You lied with your last breath and left with a grin
Sleep Casanova with the hearts that you stole
My sweet Casanova I finally let go

We are gathered here today to lay to rest this man unnamed
Loved by many pretty girls, but who he was no one can say
That silver tongue's been put to rest and now he's left to pass ones..

We are gathered here today to lay to rest this man unnamed
Loved by this pretty girl but who he was I can say

Casanova was his name

Casanova was his

Tells you words that you can feel
A Casanova if you will

And as time moves forward I slowly sink in
Into the cracks, yes, these walls they caved in

Casanova was his name
Track Name: You Used to Be Beautiful
Turn the lights off, and act like I'm not home
After all, nobody's ever home
Turn the music up, and try to drown you out
Excuses from your mouth are consuming me

With words that are lacking interest
Very weak and dull
Take a hint and leave me alone

Can't beat down my door
Built from bricks you've thrown before
My heart's not your home
Please just go

Fool me once that's okay
I was acting foolishly anyway
But if you fool me twice you'll see
No I won't be won't be waiting
No I won't be won't be fooled
I will not be meeting you at three

Can't beat down my door
built from bricks you've thrown before
My heart's not your home
Please just go

Set fire to this house, and it won't burn down
Leave your matches at the door
You can't hurt me anymore

How does that feel, my love?
How do you feel for your once beloved?

How do you feel?
How do you feel?

Are you feeling helpless
Even the slightest bit distressed

Dependency lingering less
I finally put it down to rest
Tell me, how does i-i-it feel?
Ask me how do I feel
I'll tell you that this feels

It feels so good
It feels so good
It feels so good
It feels...

Can't beat down my door
Built from bricks you've thrown before
My heart's not your home
Please just go

Set fire to this house
And it won't burn down
Leave your matches at the door
You can't hurt me anymore
You can't hurt me anymore
Track Name: Question Mark of the Beast
We've strung you from across the room
Don't notice us but that's our ruse
You can't see we're controlling you
Puppets
Shake a leg to our new song

Oo, we like the way you move like so (we like the way you move)
You like the way we move you, so (you like the way we move)
You put on such a moving show
You like the way we move you, so

Your eyes meet mine
locked, and mesmerized
Your voice has got me all hypnotized

Trying not to speak knees start going weak
and I, I think
That you have got the best of me

Your eyes meet mine
locked, and mesmerized
Your voice has got, me all hypnotized

Oo we like the way you move like so
You like the way we move you, like the way we move you, like the way we move you
We like the way you move like so,
We like the way, we like the way, we like the way you sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shake

Mister
Strings pull my arms and my
Mister
my feet come off the ground
Mister
I'd rather not think I'm just
Mister
just letting my guard down

You've got my head spinning around
It's getting late why don't you take me home with you

Mister, mister, mister, mister

I give you all control

It's getting late why don't you take me home with you
It's getting late why don't you take me home with you

And I'll give you full control
Control
Track Name: The Fizzicks of Phlight
(Just finish what you started
Please finish what you started
Just know it's not me)

Tonight he takes control
Stepping foot on new ground
Don’t believe in stories told
For I am innocent

Thought I knew him well
But I guess he knew me better
To the ground I fall
Oh mister you’re so clever

Just finish what you started
Please finish what you started
Just know it’s not me

In your hands you hold
Such a picture perfect plan
Left staring at these walls hoping you could understand
Wanting to get through waiting for my words to reach you

Just finish what you started
Please finish what you started
Just know it’s not me

Cursing my free mind
Blame it on spare time
Shooting through these stars
I picked you
Cursing my free mind
Blame it on spare time
Shooting through these stars
I picked you

I picked you

Just finish what you started
Please finish what you started
Just know it’s not me
Just finish what you started
Please finish what you started
Just know it’s not me
You know it’s not me

Please finish what you started
You know it’s not me

Finish this
