We've been lying here for all these nights Coming to terms with all those crying eyes But I'd hate to see you go And I'd even hate to know What we hide under all these lives All my life, I've never met someone who's So like I am, under all these lives All my life, I've never met someone who's So like I am, under all these lives Come and take away my broken pride And try to fuel it with your spoken mind It never acts the same, it always arrives too late For me insanity under all these lives All my life, I've never met someone who's So like I am, under all these lives All my life, I've never met someone who's So like I am, under all these lives

And we've got the past over here ready and stop And you know it's not over so we'll crawl in the top But now everybody's losing so we'll give it all up And just watch the left overs being drained from the spot And we've got a nervous twitch in which Runs us out of air to inhale Just like a swift lifting of A mind's true pale skinned paranoia And we missed the turn around to live it up and dress it with care Facing a risk you swallow matches and wished you weren't there But now it's here and you wear it like you're losing a dare And we've got a nervous twitch in which Runs us out of air to inhale Just like a swift lifting of A mind's true pale skinned paranoia

I’ve been talking to myself For so long it doesn’t even make any sense You’re breaking down at night I’ve been walking the same old streets All the same, if only I could talk for myself The vision’s out of sight But when we go Don’t ever say we didn’t make it far In the space with the bedroom wall It’s a race, who will win it all? It’s a name, it’s a face, it’s a game And I won’t let it fall I’m trapped in a dead man’s hearse It holds me under as I gasp for breath There’s no way out alive But when we go In the space with the bedroom wall It’s a race, who will win it all? It’s a name, it’s a face, it’s a game And I won’t let it fall. I won’t let it fall I won’t let it fall In the space with the bedroom wall It’s a race, who will win it all? It’s a name, it’s a face, it’s a game And I won’t let it fall

When all your pennies turn to shame and I'm 1000 miles away Do you think I'd help you in the end, I'd never dream of it Cause I'm a pretty selfish guy when I have reason for the time And I won't help you find your way or even turn my back When I was kicked and I was down, you were no where to be found You didn't help me on my feet, you were on the fence Now I'm up and off the ground, no one can ever heal me now Do you feel me in your lives cause you can't save me. No, you'll never win alone Unless you -less you -less you have the guts You can say what you want But you'll never say what you can't bargain No, you'll never say what your own hearts in And I'll make you pay for this cause I'll win And now I'm feeling rather ill for all the blood that has been spilt But it's all in self defence, I swear, it's all in self defence I must keep running with this mind, if I stop I could die Cause it's too hard to live alone and I don't want to die alone For all your careless calling names and victimising done in vain I'd love to see you try so you'd fall right flat on your face Take another shot at me, for all the shots I have received Have proven nothing of myself, but shows that you- No, you'll never win alone Unless you -less you -less you have the guts You can say what you want Cause you'll never say what you can't bargain No, you'll never win alone Unless you -less you -less you have the guts You can say what you want Cause you'll never say what you can't bargain No, you'll never say what your own hearts in And I'll make you pay for this cause I'll win Take it or leave it baby Cause I'll never see you on the other side I'll just turn my back and let you slip away Take it or leave it baby Cause I'll never see you on the other side I'll just turn my back and let you slip away You'll never win alone You won't win unless you have the guts

Now I'm just a ghost A lost spirit in this town And all of those who I loved most Are no more than a distant sound A memory loses meaning A song that sees straight through me A fear in the flask The killer wears a mask Just like the old classic horror Maid of honour breath for longer And we will soon start the show Now I'm just a ghost, I am the most I don't follow every little order But I breath like I say life keeps getting shorter And I realise the stakes of my mistakes Take the time for my mind And place it on the pavement Fuck with me I don't Think I know you most Watch me go right through the front gate Tell me now babe I just can't wait Hear me out cause this is not the reason Spilling plans right from the top floor Setting fire to all that is not yours Don't hate me cause I'm just the messenger But now We can fight 'til we die, it's okay But now I will lie with you still breathing away

Days Go By 03:45
Days go by I can see a million ways to die Tell me this is not the end Tell me this is not the end When days go by So just stay close tonight Cause these days go by So just stay close tonight Cause days go by Days go by Can you see a million others lie? Tell me this is not the end Tell me this is not the end When days go by So just stay close tonight Cause these days go by So just stay close tonight Cause days go by I can feel it in my bones And I can feel it in my bones And I can feel it in my bones And I can fell it in my bones So just stay close tonight Cause these days go by So just stay close tonight Cause days go by

Take away my co-existing mind Cause it fills my thoughts with traumatic scenes That kills my prospective dreams And you don't know what it's like to see like me You can envision all the potent and derogatory acts But you'll never see it in-fact I can't even see it on my own I have some help from my friend I call the mind runner He leaves his thoughts and tails away Even when I don't want him anymore He leaves me with his destructive actives Bellowing in amphetamines Take me back from your scene change Take me back and you look so pretty But oh, can't you see I'm so broken Can't you see that I'm so outspoken Please tell me you believe me Please tell me that I'm dumb Please tell me that I broke the spoke-n And please tell me where I'm from Track me down on your radar Track me down cause you know you can't save me But no, I don't have any brain cells Cause I left them at home Please tell me you believe me Please tell me that I'm wrong Please tell me you can see me Please tell me this is hell

And we stand out Out of the crowd and into the dust now It arrived too late Fate has been destined to fall out of clutch and break Into small reflections They hold the memories in your life And to my objection I hold them all here with a knife A knife of vengeance They call and scream my name But god is a witness He is nothing but a witness to my crime A crime of sickness What's sick is the hope to play this game and win It's as fucked up as saying lie is a- Sin Never felt the same, never felt this way Never felt ok, never plead for pain Only one alive, can only I die? Tell me all of your games Tell me why you think it's ok to cover us up in shame And walk around and do as you please Now I know it arrived too late For these words to reach your brain and tell you That not everything's ok A crowd of people stand and stare alike And she said Tell me it's alright, tell me it's ok and he said Tell me it's alight, tell me it's ok and she said Tell me it's alight, tell me it's ok and he said Tell me it's alight, tell me it's ok and she said Only one alive only one alive Can only I die, can only I die Only one alive, can only I die

about

Janus-Faced is a melancholic conceptual 8-track EP. The story plots an ill man against an ill world in a fight for sanity, as the existence of his best friend and lover is dismissed as a projection of his mind.
