From our second EP "The Stranger Amongst the Loyal" for a very limited time only, back by popular demand (due to MTV's Catfish: The TV Show) we bring you "Riddles in the Dark"


Won't you lay me with your reasons now
We've been falling away for this time, too long
Say, don't give it another moment
Lay it all to rest and watch it die

Your love is like a monster
Tearing, ripping, grinding me apart
Yes, you moved away we lost it dear
Connection has been slayed and now it's gone

For too long

Now you come across so reckless
Stumbling towards the death of everything
You throw in words of faith
It all appears so fake and meaningless

Like knives your words stab through me
Killing every dream that's ever come
The blood is spilling out now
You speak softly just trying to patch it up

Ah but no more

Now the anger burns away, as I feel it crawling out from my skin
Through my blood it rages, raging through it poor(s) in back again
Forgive me for my actions, pardon me from all you've come to hold
For I always gave my best dear, and still would have if you hadn't let go
