Track Name: Angel of Fate
Pete Mac
Track Name: Lame and Languid
Can you listen to how I'm feeling
I've got to take it slow
Give me lessons on how to breath in
I think I don't know

Is it time for me, Is it time for you
Tragedy, won't let me through
I'm the one who cares, Are you feeling down
Humanity, won't let me be
I'm left behind

Give a listen to how I'm sleeping
A grey caressing glow
Give me strength, too faint to feel it
Find more similar lyrics on
You were way too slow

I confide alone
And I can't find my soul
When I've just begun to let go

Am I weak or high, I'll be sick inside
Only time will tell, how I'm feeling
Will I laugh or cry, will I live or die
Only time will tell

Track Name: Downward Spiral
Heaven knows I'm not blind
Can't adhere without a mind
Heaven breaths another sigh
Hesitate what I seek
Terminate society
Heaven weeps another cry

Sail me sober
Stray me closer

Heaven knows I'm alive
Motivate what's inside
Heaven breaths a passive sigh
Can't escape reality
Never wake a fantasy
Heaven weeps another cry

"Tormented screams, that only I can hear
Find more similar lyrics on
I thrust myself into the black hole and fall through the depths
Sinking Deeper, Becoming Weaker
Will I Wake...I Break..."

Heaven knows this,
Can I beat this hell?
Have I known this
Enough to save myself
Have you noticed,
Another signal's down,
You're barely focused,
I shy away

Heaven knows I'm not blind
Can't adhere without a mind
Heaven screams another cry
