Track Name: The Great Deluge
And so you see we’ve come undone
Find some peace now and run from love
Now darkness comes, our faithful friend
And masks desire until the very end
Thunder and light cascade down
Our bodies spark, fires burn around

We can dance all night
In the pouring rain
‘Till the sun comes up
And start all over again ooo
We could swim all night
Through the Great Deluge
‘Till the water comes
Start all over again

And I could give a damn if we have hell to pay
As wet warm night turns out to blinding day
Just recall that we are all alive
Just don’t let go as we collide

I will not give up this night
For love lost or for harbor

We could dance all night
In the pouring rain
‘Till the sun comes up
Then start all over again ooo
We could swim all night
Through the Great Deluge
‘Till the water comes
Then start all over again ooo
Track Name: Paris Basement
City’s ablaze with light on through the night
From Saint Germaine to stars all in single strides
But below the streets it’s cold and dark like hell
Where shouts rise into roars and roars rise into bells

They’re sounding off inside our hearts our bodies beat on
They’re sounding off inside our hearts

Seven million souls won’t ever know their names
We won’t be dying the same, and not in a Paris basement
For whom the bell tolls won’t ever know of fame
We won’t be dying the same, and not in a Paris basement

As daylight comes we see what night now knows
That we should never be caught in the undertow
When we’re sent out to sea in time for fond farewell
We will crash upon shores, ensures we’ll ring out bells

They’re sounding off inside our hearts our bodies beat on
They’re sounding off inside our hearts

Seven million souls won’t ever know their names
We won’t be dying the same and not in a Paris basement
For whom the bell tolls won’t ever know of fame
We won’t be dying the same and not in a Paris basement

We won’t wait, wasting for kings of old,
Waiting for providence and signs of life so
We won’t wait, wasting for springs of old,
Waiting in suspense for our final blow and

This ground may break my body
But my cold heart will forever be yours and
Dear God don’t wait for heaven
For kingdom come may not be ours ever

Oh dear God don’t wait for heaven
For kingdom come may not be ours ever
Oh don’t wait for all too long
Track Name: Ghosts
Another quiet night brought me closer
To past love, demons, ghosts, and disaster
In the dark holding on to all I have, but all is lost
You should know dear how I loved you

Does it seem like I'm just counting down the days?
Tell me that you want me to stay
Tell me that you need me

Since when have I gone and found other ways?
Tell me that you want me to stay
Tell me that you need me

For some time it seemed I’d been lead astray

Hammers will ring bells below
Pouring down will not slow
And never stop

Calamity turns you out
Run so you will not lose yourself
And never stop

Until you hear the sound of millions falling down
And fading into surround
Can you see the lights of millions shining bright?
Burned down from the fights

I know you’d ask how long we’d have to wait to love again
For days and time, this I know,
But time won’t change a thing
As we wait for the flood we saw

Ghosts are haunting my mind
To remind me of the times
Back when days were warm relief
I will return in sleep

Slowly waking, lissome skies
From the morning into night
Slowly dreaming of the lights
That will guide you home
Track Name: Old Gods (Waking Up)
Nuclear winter is over now
Just a whisper all thawed out
No more terrors, haunting gone
Seeing clearly I was wrong

Went back to worship old Gods and lie
That lust was not the fire behind my eyes

I’m waking up alone
Two years passed turned me to stone
I said I’d hold for you
‘Til my days, days are through

I said I’d wait one hundred years
Burned in the fire that I have always feared

But now I’ve come alive
I found lust disguised
As love I’ll be all right
But it brought me to some

Depths I’ve never known
Where no lights ever go
And I made it out alone
And now I know that

Old Gods were ghosts
That haunted me unknown
