Track Name: Gravedigger
Someone said I'm like a gravedigger
They said they think I need to change
Cos digging up the past is a pointless game to play
When you've nothing left to blame
Someone said there's nothing out there for me
And now I only sit and wait
My ears are pressed against this empty shell
And they're growing dull with age

I've felt the loneliness of a long distance runner
whose disengaged from the herd
You drag your heels now
When it's a poor man's game you play
Your anthem's made for the gold

I fear that I've become the gravedigger
Through troubled times I'm digging deep
I fear that I've become the gravedigger
Become the things I thought I'd never be

Someone said I'm like a werewolf
Always asking why things change
Circled and cornered brittle shape-shifter
Your backbone‘s creaking into place
But now I know there's nothing out there
Preying on my every turn
My eyes are wide for your illumination
A state of envy only earned
Track Name: Let Every Tongue (Chinese version)
让每个舌头把它解开
rang meige shetou ba ta jiekai
当嘴拒绝说话
dang zui jujue shuohua
将我耳朵停在你头颅裂缝中
jiang wo erduo tingzai ni toulu liefenzhong
聆听你意识的呢喃
lingting ni yishi de ninan

让语言停止悠闲漂泊
rang yuyan tingzhi youxian piaobo
当牙龈拒绝打开
dang yaying jujue dakai
我内心愤嫉淹没在你头颅的幽禁中
wo neixin fenji yanmo zai ni toulu de youjinzhong
在那螺隐藏的地方
zai na luo yincang de difang

让我进入
rangwo jinru ... mmm

搁浅在海滩上
geqian zai haitanshang
巨鲸的躯体
jujing de quti
在阳光下膨胀
zai yangguang xia pengzhang
被苍蝇掠食
bei cangyin lueshi
瘟疫
wenyi
在阳光下传播
zai yangguang xia chuanbo

让每个舌头把它解开
rang meige shetou ba ta jiekai
当嘴拒绝说话
dang zui jujue shuohua
将我耳朵停在你头颅裂缝中
jiang wo erduo tingzai ni toulu liefenzhong
聆听你意识的呢喃
lingting ni yishi de ninan

让我进入
rangwo jinru ... mmm
