Track Name: Under My Spell
C#m F G#m B C#m
If the words can’t describe the chill I will
C#m F G#m B C#m A
If the blood doesn’t prove our love I will
F B
Take us back to the start
A F B
Eternally back to the start

C#m
Under my spell
F B
A language we use to get higher than hell
C#m
Under my spell
F B
A language we use to get higher than hell

Though the pills satisfy the hordes I still
Though their debts purify their minds I still
Take us back to the start
Eternally back to the start

Under my spell
A language we use to get higher than hell
Under my spell
A language we use to get higher than hell
Under my spell
A language we use to get higher than hell
Under my spell
A language we use to get higher than hell
Track Name: Heaven in Hell
Bm A Bm
So you showed me the master plans
A Bm
To be the perfect man
D A
So we tried
Bm
and so we failed
D A F#m
now your tears are unveiled
So you showed me your memories
no one can disagree
in their arms
and on your knees
through this you will be free
D F#m Bm
Heaven in Hell
D F#m Bm
Heaven in Hell
F#m A E Bm
We won’t let go of this dream
D F#m Bm
till it poisons everything

Now we’ve opened the final box
bottom is now on top
now we’ve got all we could want
till we wanted to stop
When our songs become overplayed
we’ll recognize the shame
but we’re gone
the silence strong
and no chance to be wrong
Track Name: Sweet as Cake
C G
I’m still waiting for your kisses
F G
I can’t be happy with this
We’re so close but you’re so far now
I’m moving backwards
And I’m in love with you
Yes I’m in love with you
I’m invested in your sexness
I should be making breakfast
you give vibrations, elevations
bring them together
‘Cause I’m in love with you
yes I’m in love with you
Track Name: New Kiss
E B E B
I was waiting for a new kiss
E B E B
I just picked her out last Friday I love her
A E B
Cause I’ve been waiting a long time
A E B
So I will lover her a long time
E B E B
I was waiting for the sunrise
E B E B
I was hoping it could be mine for a little while
A E B
But I’ll be waiting forever
A F# B
And I don’t have forever
E B E B
So I asked her if she would see me
E B E B
I thought she could be the lady that saves me
A E B
Cause I’ve been dreaming a long time
A F#
Guess I’ll be dreaming forever
B F#
But I don’t have forever
B F#
No I don’t have forever
B E B E B E B E B
No I don’t have don’t have…
A E B
I’ve been dreaming a long time
A F#
Guess I’ll be dreaming forever
B F#
But I don’t have forever
B F#
No I don’t have forever
B
No I don’t have don’t have don’t have…
Track Name: Endgames
I was a way to turn things off
But I’m a hailstorm
A way to stand above it all
I’m on my knees please

You were a beggar
You are a thief
I could forgive you
I’m not that weak

I was a way to turn the tide
But I am cyanide
A way to be so big and small
Not there at all

You were a beggar
You are a thief
I could forgive you
I’m not that weak

You don’t need me
You never did
What I gave you
Was already there
I didn’t make you
You know that’s true
I don’t love you
Why do you care?

I was the hope inside a cave
But I’m a rapist
I was a map inside a maze
But I’m a Minotaur

You were a beggar
You are a thief
I could forgive you
I’m not that weak

I was the eye inside the storm
But I’m a warlord
I was the dream that never ends
But overspends
Track Name: Show Me Your Secret
E A E A E A E A
B A
Bring your charms
E
I’ll meet you at your door
B
We’ve won this war
A
Such a surprise
E
It’s in our hands
B
Let’s make amends

A B
It’s cold outside
A B A
Get the curtains drawn
B
I’ve got a surprise
A
Only for your eyes

E B A B E B A B

E B A B
Show me your secret
E B A B
Show me show me
Show me your secret
Show me show me
Show me your secret
Show me show me
Show me your secret
Show me show me

Bring my dreams
I forgot my shame
It’s all in a day

Close your eyes
How can you be so coy?
I’m your perfect boy
Track Name: Perfect Cool
E D
This song is for you

there can be no mistaking
E
it's true, you're tune
D
it's always today

tomorrow is too late
E
no way
D
I was aching

complaining
E
so blue
D
now I'm changing
E
shaking for you
A
I didn't understand

was the other man
E
all I want is you
A
I didn't care about

couldn't go without
E
you're my favorite muse
D A D E
Perfect, cool,
D A D E
Perfect, cool

this song is no ruse
there can be no faking it's true
you're tune
it's always a game
I'm walking the lines I made
you were laughing, smiling
so cute
now you're shining, it's blinding
I knew...
Track Name: Companions of the Flame
E G A
Hezbollah
E G A
Hezbollah
E
The way you talk
G A E G A
You are your own god
B D
Turn your love
B D
Into a burning hate
B D
Stop their hearts
B D
Before it gets too late
E A D A
Get back get back get back into the flames
E A D A
Get back get back get back into the flames
E A D A
Get back get back get back into the flames
E A D A
Get back get back get back into the flames

Hezbollah
Hezbollah
Heaven’s gates just can’t wait

Turn your hate
Into a burning plague
Send forth your rats
To die again
Track Name: Sky Flower
D
I’m the undead
We’re underfed
E A
You are a bright sky flower

I will chew on your lives
Swallowing both your eyes

You wait behind walls
And hide underground
Running away from us

You even have your own bus
But soon you’ll be more of us

I will consume
All that you are
I’ll be my brightest star

No matter how fast you are
We’ll be the king of things

For life is not a diamond ring
And death I think is no song to sing
Track Name: Dreamweapon
G Bm
Underneath the wheels of silence
G Bm
Turning like a carousel
G Bm D
Deep inside the heart of violence
G Bm
Running from its’ own invention
G Bm
Racing like a rabbit’s heart
G Bm D
Ambushed by its’ own defenses

C Em D Am C
Dreamweapon, day will dawn
Em Am
Who makes it?
C Em D Am
Love fakers, timeless ones
C Em Am
God tamers

Over in abandoned castles
In the penal colonies
Safely in the arms of madness
Running from its’ own invention
Racing like a rabbit’s heart
Ambushed by its’ own defenses

D Am
It’s so blind
D Am
It’s so blind
G D Am Cm
It’s sublime
