Track Name: This Man
he found a home
deep in a place within your dreams
you no longer can understand what it is to sleep

in a nightmare i dont trust
sits a man who knows too much
with a grin from cheek to cheek
now my future's lookin bleak

this man is watching all of us
in the night he's one that i can trust
in the shadows right behind the tree
his hungry eyes are watching you and me
Track Name: Otzi
a night of endless mistakes has fallen over you
a simple touch of your waste just proves that you're not true

he steps in your home while she's probably alone
the secret's in your bones but she's probably alone

i'm nothing more than a ghost you don't believe to be true
some kind of horrible monster that's a part of you
Track Name: What's in Your Attic?
what's in your attic?
thought I saw it
what's in your attic?
I wanna draw it

It's in the way that it moves
oh no it's how it does what it choose
and you know it's something I can't undo
oh no you know it's coming for you

in the night it creaks the ceiling bends around it
in times of fright it shrieks wanting the one who found it
Track Name: Irene Bolam
deep in the trees you dress how you need so they won't ever know
to glaring eyes you tell them you're not what you are but they know
cuz when they see you your face haunts the back of their mind and it shows
but you hold on to the thick ocean crust and you die

I got this feeling about you cuz what's in your eyes isnt true
you got some disguise outside of you
I got nothin but the crust in my eyes and I'm

not fallin for you
Track Name: Fraternal Curses
I don't wanna be in your old oak coffin
so what's the point of goin? I'm not gunna stop and
somethings creeping, it's right behind me

I'd do it all for you

A cold hand touches me on the shoulder

Anything it's true

What kind of creature are you?
watch your eyes, the only thing that I do
I don't wanna be the one who's getting hypnotized and drooling for you
what kinda creature are you?

You're hearin footsteps in the trees now and no one's there
but somethings up your sleeve now but no one's there
