Track Name: Orion
I will always look to see you in the night
You will always feel for the coming cold
On your shoulder I can see a crimson light
You know I can hear your breathing come and go

Waiting like a hunter for you sisters there
Waiting for the dawn to break into my eyes
You know I'm a killer, I don't even care
I roll with the punches each and every time
Track Name: Sci Fi Novels
I would like to breathe, but I cannot escape the machine
Daily all its teeth press a little harder into me
So I try to sleep
What are all those lights I see?

As the pages turn I can feel the arms of the clock wrapping around me
Tying up my mind
I can't even dream 'cause they're still there waiting for me
So I try to sleep
I can see that red digital readout staring back at me
Calling all the streetlights down
Track Name: Try Again
Try again, finger on that reset button
Don't forget the errors in the calculation
Time it right, factor for the hesitation
If at first you do not succeed, try again
To heed all of the instructions
Write it down, desire for a comparison
Against the past, the future is a sure progression
If again you do not succeed,
If again you do not succeed,
Just try to try to try again for me
Track Name: Hunter
Oh, how long have you been looking in the dark?
You are a hunter, but will you leave your mark?
As one armed with bronze in shade I see your silhouette.
We wait together but everyone must meet with death.
I see you looking forever through the sky,
And when the hunt fights back you know I feel your injury.
Throw your weapons down upon the earth.
