Track Name: Beyond a Moth to Light
Cut in half these shallow seas and listen to the mark of the beast.
Forgive me, this strange way of being...
My desire is for one simple thing: to grow.

There is so much to see so far beyond the fire's edge.

Patiently waiting to transcend while thinking, then looking and listening for something, not right or reason.
At the slightest point of a second in space where time is so much more than order.
Slide, crawl, stand up tall... Lift, float, then fly so high...
Now see this unfold, watch heaven manifest.
So grow now child, just grow.

Chasing the tail of a demon they will never know, but how could they?
Set in wrong ways and old teachings, and living a lie.
We must succumb to erasing... Erasing... Erasing... Erasing.

There is so much to see so far beyond the fires edge

Cast out all deceit and swallow your pride to see this cannot be the way that we were meant to be.

So grow...
Track Name: Critical Mass
I've been mulling around rain shadows banging on the forefront of a world beyond the concept of natural progression.
While ten to one we rise and fall like flies upon a rotting wall, our best of days are vestigial.
So throw these doors wide open. A fall ahead would cripple our forward motion.
So it seems that none foresee the end is drawing near and the answer is what binds us.
Countless beings bottleneck, catastrophe is past impending.
Mass encumbered... We have exceeded all that we are.
We've gone too far.
We've gone too far on our own.

We move mountains like feeble bits of stone.
Shape the world and change where we will go... forever.
We've been missing the splendor that breathes before us.
Has our time served its purpose when all is brought down?

We've gone too far.
We've gone too far on our own.

Graves dug deep (When we all fell asleep), graves dug deep (can you blame me?), lest this wound leaves us all to think (Do I wait to find out?).

Countless beings bottleneck, catastrophe is past impending.
Mass encumbered... We have exceeded all that we are.
We've gone too far.
We've gone too far on our own... On our own... On our own... On our own.
Track Name: Scratchle Brain
Lesser men have fell beside those who dare to speak.
Weaving with deceit a tale told for comforting.

Out of tragedy, reborn hope so who could blame a soul for finding peace, for sorrow has convincing ways.

Weary eyes believe...
Track Name: Silver in the Cold
Say goodbye to the world you used to know,
I'll surely die with silver in the cold.
You've been waiting, slowly changing.
I cannot connect to you the way I always used.
A blissful lie now consumes your life.
My one worst fear will now arise.
Wait, it cant be you.
Say this isn't true...
This is something you should never be.

Say goodbye to the world you used to know.
I'll surely die with silver in the cold.
You seem so far away...
You seem so far away...
You seem so far away from me.

It breaks my heart to see you in this slow demise,
but soon this evil with you could be left far behind.
Hope is waiting, don't fear changing.
Let this go, be free.
Track Name: Introvert
A safe shield veils me.
Latching on... comforting.
The harsh seems so uninviting as always is and has been before.
The chain keeps lengthening, the links are strengthening, confining me indefinitely.
The brilliance blisters the fairest skin and penetrates deeply down to see my atrophy
So I'll break solitude, one time cease to harbor this despite the chasm filling and topping us off with the tide.
Make some compromise, dig deeply to find the answer is to be willing to stare disaster in the eye.

Lay wasting time, wasting life.
Drifting, breathing softly...
Begin to feel this all pressing distance.
Quickly, patient, my growing answer.

I have seen the end through days of past and I know thick will burn the hasty, and I don't mind because I'm waiting out all of you.
Waiting out all of you.
Waiting out all of you.
Waiting out

It makes me try so much harder than I did before, so I don't fall on my face and say, "I could die."
Rage that's blind, constantly infecting my subconscious and it is tearing me apart.

Break solitude, one time cease to harbor this despite the chasm filling and topping us off with the tide.
Make some compromise, and dig deeply to find the answer is to be willing to stare disaster in the eye.

So stare disaster in the eye...
Track Name: Home
Long and hard has been the road to nowhere, still we'll be back home, we soon will be back home.
We want to leave... We've lost our way, but hope is not so distant.
We've lost our way, the way back home.

Pushing onward, on from nothing.

Looking back on the path, hard to know where we've been.
I'm only one all alone, but all of us lead the way.
Like cattle out to graze, we're hardly even awake...
Just taking what we're given and put nothing in its place.

We've lost our way, but hope is not so distant.
We've lost our way, but not our lives.

We don't even know we're reaching.

Pushing onward, on from nothing.
We're pushing further, waning those ahead of us.
Track Name: Haunted
Like men led through fire who choose to face the flame, my fate unfolds to no surprise.
With end just out of sight, I'm comforted again.

What's wrong with the system?
It's not intentional, although now the casualties are starting to worry me.

I don't want to be a part of this.

We harbor this, rest in our tombs.
Take choice from hands to set me free because I don't want to live in anger.
So just make amends with self-foreseen loss because I know the circle comes round again.
I'm where I was, with nothing to show for what I've been through or lived past, because its endless.

I don't want to be a part of this.
Track Name: Blood From a Stone
Bickering in silence we wean off the light and we follow the path of an arrogant life.
Never pleading, but needing a feeding, a leaching.
The sucking of blood from a stone never bleeding.
We revel more than anger, wonders down below.

Even hell could not be like this infected fucking wasteland.
Leaching our life source and feeding a cause like the walls will never fall.
In time we all will fall!

Leaving what sets us apart from our flesh will descend us to vibrant, yet lifeless depiction of progress.
Socially hitting a stasis, laying to waste all the places that collect to resemble...

We wont be around to see the sun go down, to feel the ocean dry, to watch the world give out, to feel the final hour die.
Sit down, strap in, follow, relax and don't think too deeply.
You might start retracting given the make-up of all that we shakeup.
Its easy and happy, just sit back and ride the wave.

Burn and purge to wash away, this vast infection cannot stay.
We'll burn and purge, and see the truth.
We've hit a point with all to lose.
Destroy, we must, entirely if we should hope to be (reborn).

Without change we will cease to exist.
Track Name: Fully Dependent
We bare the pride of the weakened
there is nothing left for the sympathetic life
yet we all
make the mold to fit what’s in our minds eye

Awake
not yet but close
walking along lines
laid before us
the weight
of why we have come
plagued with uncertainty
and finding what we want most

chose to find
our grand design
so following
thoughts cast aside
why lie to prove
what cant be solved
there is no truth
to change us all

we're all alone
to be alone is not wrong

Holding on to faith
Blinded by a mistake
Track Name: The Darkest Place I Know
As I sleep I dream so wildly, dream I'm wandring the world alone.

As I pass through the mountains and valleys I'm awake in the infinite cold.

Sky's so black, never unveiling star light.

Days are endless and dreary and old.

Ever searching without ever finding an escape from this bottomless hole.

I come to find that all is right, that simple dreams couldn't change one’s life.

Where all are still but some are silent, in the darkest place I know.

There's a world full of mystery and laughing, dancing to and through my soul.

Everything, large or small, so enchanting.

Still in ways that could pierce through the cold.

All my comfort escapes through my insight, realizing what I’ve always known.

I discover through screams of insanity, I’m eternally here alone.

I come to find that all is right, that simple dreams couldn't change one’s life.
For now I’ll leave, always to return to the darkest place I know.
Track Name: Root of All Evil
It’s simple, so harmful, the one true plague of man.
Separating, the strong are overtaking and leaving the weak to die alone.
This is the law that's leading our lives, but we won't overthrow this currency, killing those willing to live.
Our greed just grows and grows, but how the world keeps spinning with thieves rich, fat and leading us all to a step by step chosen existence...
To become a battery to insert and power, the machine every hour so don't be lazy!
Brainwashed and shameless and subject to trade, but they make it easy.
Do as you wish, but beware you're an object, enslaved are the people
The wise men keep dividing the world so their pockets stay full and keep on controlling all those who they can control.
But weak as I am I can see we've been ostracized.
So go! End this oppressive dollar. Go!
And all comes back to the one ignored, true issue: We were bred to serve.
Track Name: With All Hope Lost
Empty whispers haunting me, singing songs of calamity.
Dream your dreams and speak the words, for we've all faltered, now at our worst.
Bitter rivals now differing.
We speak in tongues as if to save our works.
Holy visions of broken men, a circumstance could be an obvious end.
Who we are, where we were, a lament of bittersweet words.
From weary warriors to brainwashed insects, I hold back to who we were.
With all hope lost now, here we stand.
With all hope lost now, here we are.
