Track Name: Gamble
Welcome to our den of wildest dreams
Our promise of good fortune is as it seems
Friendly service is always near
Everyone's really keen to keep you here
So take a load of and play a few games
Make a few friends, Learn a few names
Pit your fortunes against others too
Never know how far your luck will take you
We know there's something your heart desires
That there are heights to which you aspire
We're here to give you a chance my friend
We'll stay with you until the very end
Risk a little wealth for alot more
Or feel free to give up and walk out the door
But no one out there will provide the means
For a quick fix route to your dreams

You stay for the ultimate prize
But all you get is surefire demise
Why can't you see through all the lies

You can't depend on luck of the gods
Soon you will fall fowl of the odds

Neon, flashing lights and promise of riches
No better temptress is required
Set the deck stacked in your favour
Cut one, cut twice and continue the ruse
Cards, chips and bones, our weapons of choice
A smooth smile carefully placed words
No movement without purpose, distraction and sleight of hand
Give a little in order to take much much more
Now you've bought in, you're here for the count
When we're done profiteering, you can leave
Oh you'll come back for more, thinking you can do better
But ultimately the house always wins

You stay for the ultimate prize
But all you get is surefire demise
Why can't you see through all the lies

You can't depend on luck of the gods
Soon you will fall fowl of the odds
Track Name: Scream
Reaching out
For embrace
Hope to ignite a little fire

Noone there
Once again
Throw myself upon the pyre

Pure moments
You are there
Lift me a little higher

But after
You are gone
I once again tire

And i scream
Oh how i scream
Yet you hear no sound
With each muted moment passing by
I fall further to the ground
And i try
Oh how i try
To confide when you are around
I find myself short of meeting your eye
As i'm swallowed by the ground

Try to talk
What to say
But your just a flicker in mine eye
Mental state
Is failing
Unfortunately i can't deny

Hoping for
Tender touch
Just to see me through the night
Loneliness
Emptiness
Sleepless i can't fight

I fall aside
Gone is pride
I fall aside
Gone

And i scream
Oh how i scream
Yet you hear no sound
With each muted moment passing by
I fall further to the ground
And i try
Oh how i try
To confide when you are around
I find myself short of meeting your eye
As i'm swallowed by the ground
Track Name: Forgive
Another one falls
Crimson fills my eyes
A simple passing
Left to fade where they lie

The powers that be have guided my hand
I move as a shadow throughout the land
Carried out their bidding, choosing my hour
Forever praying to a greater power

Hope you can forgive
I've failed to see another way
In such a short time
I've taken another life today
Please forgive
Every face is always on show
I will do my time
But this way is all that I know

Once the smoke clears
The bloodied veil cast aside
See those fallen before me
And the many still behind

As each one fades, I seek their mercy
As numbers rise, it becomes harder to see
My actions the behaviour of automation
Waiting for the day of my reconciliation

The shadows are always hanging over me
I'm the only identity you will see
Cloaked shrouded individuals in their tower
Leave me praying to a greater power

Hope you can forgive
I've failed to see another way
In such a short time
I've taken another life today
Please forgive
Every face is always on show
I will do my time
But this way is all that I know
