about

Fugue State is a concept album. It tells the story of a man and his girlfriend, and their rough time as the man moves away for work. In the beginning, things are going well, and they spend their time reassuring each other, but as time progresses, they get more and more skeptical of the other. Eventually, tensions rise and they come to resent one another, until the man realizes he still needs her and drives home immediately. As he's driving down the road, she calls him and he tells her he's on his way. She runs outside and starts heading down the road. He drops his phone, and as he's fumbling on the floor trying to find it, he hits her head on. The album closes, and filled with guilt and remorse, he drives his car into a lake with her body in the trunk, killing himself.

A deluxe edition will be released in some time with a short film/music video bonus item.

Track Name: Breathe
What are you waiting for?
I'm right here
No one else is good enough
For you

Let's go
Go away

'Cuz I've been here waiting for you
So patiently
And I will wait here for you
For eternity

So breathe, just breathe
And please, just stay
Cuz I need you

Everything up to this
Came so easy
Now, we're risking everything
Let's make our peace

And breathe, just breathe
Don't go away

'Cuz I've been here waiting for you
So patiently
And I will wait here for you
But don't make me

Breathe, just breathe
And please, just stay
Track Name: An Intruder In Space
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Before The Sleep
You are so much better for me
And you are all I can see

Hold on, wait for me
Hold on, I'll be there before the sleep

I can't shake this feeling
I don't feel like I'm dreaming

Hold on, wait for me
Hold on, I'll be there before the sleep

Before the torrents, before the rain
Before the blue sky faded to grey
Before the nightmare took you away
There was something I used to say

So hold on
Hold on, wait for me
Hold on
Hold on, I'll be there before the sleep

And in the dark,
I'll be there for you
And in the dark,
Don't be scared
In the dark
I will care for you

Just wait for me
Track Name: I'm Losing Grip on What's Real
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Cynic
Maybe I'm just a cynic
But I can't tell if you're still in it
'Cuz you're always covering your tracks
And I can't see the knives in my back

So just tell me what the fuck is going on
'Cuz I'm a mess and I can't tell when what I'm doing is wrong
But everything you do fine
Or so you say, as long as you say you're mine

Ain't it better when you're in control
Numbing the body and breaking the soul
You take it easy while I tear you down
And build you up again from the ground

So just tell me what the fuck is going on
'Cuz I'm a mess and I can't tell when what I'm doing is wrong
But everything you do fine
Or so you say, as long as you say you're mine
Track Name: You Shouldn't Be Here
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Egregious
You came out of no where
And caught my attention
You've got me by the hair, now
And give me hypertension

You fed me on ecstasy
Sucked the soul right out of me
You drugged me to serenity
And now you're my worst enemy

And I've got a bone to pick with you
For doing what you said you would never do
Burning bridges you ain't even crossed yet

Now I've got nothing to do with you
So just do what you do, you will never come through
Cuz this is something you can't even process

You get no where with me
I can see through all your lies
You're gone, almost permanently
I can see it in your eyes

You fed me on ecstasy
Sucked the shit right out of me
Dragged me down to my knees
And now you're my worst enemy

And I've got a bone to pick with you
For doing what you said you would never do
Burning bridges you ain't even crossed yet

Now I've got nothing to do with you
So just do what you do, you will never come through
Cuz this is something you can't even process

You keep roping me in
Like there's something more
It's hard to say no when
You take me in like your little whore

You fed me on ecstasy
Pursed lips are so misleading
Drained me of all my energy
And now there's no real enemy
Track Name: A Foreshadowing of The End
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Gasoline
You've been playing with gasoline
I bet you haven't kept your hands clean
I'm waiting on that cigarette
I wanna see something I ain't seen yet

I wanna see ya struggle to survive
Just 'cuz you ain't dead don't mean you're alive
You wanna get noticed, well here ya go
It'd make a damn fine motion picture show

And baby I can't stand
To see you carry on
'Cuz everything about you, girl
Is wrong, wrong wrong

And everything you do
Just keeps drying you out
Just light a match and a cigarette,
We'll have something to talk about

How much lovin' can you take?
How much lovin' have you faked?
You never could have really loved me
Your happiness came from my misery

I wanna see you go up in flames
'Cuz as of right now, no one knows your name
And you're so cold, you'll freeze to death
But I need you to burn so I can see your breathe get taken away

And baby I can't stand
To see you carry on
'Cuz everything about you, girl
Is wrong, wrong wrong

And everything you do
Just keeps drying you out
Just light a match and a cigarette,
We'll have something to talk about

You've been playing with gasoline
I'm gonna make you come clean
I'm waiting on that cigarette
But I'm gonna need another cassette

I wanna see you go up in smoke
Your venomous kiss was makin' me choke
I may be a bandit, but I'm still broke
Spent all my money on the cigarettes that you smoke

And baby I can't stand
To see you carry on
'Cuz everything about you, girl
Is wrong, wrong wrong

And everything you do
Just keeps drying you out
Just light a match and a cigarette,
We'll have something to talk about
Track Name: Getting There Slowly
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Old Shoes
You got my money
You got it all
You got everything
But you can't have my resolve

You got my paycheck
You got my rent
You got everything
I had left to spend

I have my debt, yeah
I have my bills
I have the answer to
What was making me ill

Oh baby, it's you
You solve all of my issues

Oh baby, it's you
You walked years in these old shoes

And not once, no
Not one time did you complain
You carry it all on your
Back til you can't stand

Back til you can't stand
And I respect that, girl

Oh baby, it's you
Track Name: Fugue State
(Instrumental)
Track Name: FIN
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
No one tells you how to make it through
Gone and you can never say goodbye
Who would have thought this is how our love would die?

You burned away faster than a match
I didn't think you'd be dry enough to catch
Now you're gone and there's no way of going back
Going down, everything slowly fades to black

I can follow you down
Show me the way out
I'll be right there next to you
I won't stop this time around

So here I lay, motionless and cold
Sinking slowly, growing moss and mold
I've never been one to do what I've been told
Just how long do you think the glass will hold?

Breathing slows, body lying still
I'm the enemy I couldn't kill
What I can't do, the water surely will
It's just a matter of time before my lungs fill
