Track Name: Metamorphosis
Metamorphosis
A rhythm flat and silent I close my eyes and dissipate
Deprived of all my senses true consciousness I have attained
Logic, reason, truth, language, faith, release, divination
No name, no face, all I've known let go
Metamorphosis watch the crow fly
I gaze upon a city of telepathic construct
Shadows of forms familiar anchor this world and the next
Cacophony to chaos transcribe a cosmic harmony
Pulled back into my body grasping at fragments of a dream
Anger, regret, love, sadness, fear, cast off, resurrection
No name, no face, All I've known let go
Metamorphosis watch the crow fly
I've shed my skin
I have no fear
Track Name: Stay Forever
Stay Forever
I dream in white, I dream in red
I dream in halftones through the eyes of the dead
(Wake up my body screaming) Consciousness a nightmare so unreal
(Focus two worlds blurring) Caught inside the gears that turn the wheel
(I run through fields sinking) It starts again
I dream of weight I dream opaque
A sense of dissonance that lingers when awake
I dream of chains made out of sound a winged horse with an affection for the ground
(Wake up my body screaming) Consciousness a nightmare so unreal
(Focus two worlds blurring) Caught inside the gears that turn the wheel
(I run through fields sinking) It starts again
Stay forever, stay forever let yourself slip away
Stay forever, stay forever let yourself slip away
I want to know what lies in store for me
A journey through a hall of mirrors devoid of memory
Dissolution of corporeality a chariot across the sky is my identity
Stay forever, stay forever let yourself slip away
Stay forever, stay forever let yourself slip away
Stay forever, stay forever more
Track Name: Seasons
Seasons
We float adrift like castaways clinging onto hope the rapids ebb and flow toward a fate unknown the times of grace, the cold embrace, the curse of age upon our face a heart tattooed, a sense of things renewed
Ancestral echoes chime, a chord frozen in time-war with the sea to burn the sky-
I fight the seasons change yet all the faces fade away-I lose it all and wonder why- fingerprints trapped in a photograph never to return
We bend like willows in the wind dancing on the edge a broken bough suggests a cold and nameless end the colors fade, a coat of chains a silver frost consumes the plains a grip released, a sense of new found peace
A moment out of phase a dark and spectral haze-war with the sea to burn the sky- I fight the seasons change yet all the faces fade away-I lose it all and wonder why- fingerprints trapped in a photograph never to return
Whoa-oh I can't believe this time it's coming after me and I say
Whoa-oh hold back the tide it pulls me to the other side and I say oh
Ancestral echoes chime a chord frozen in time-war with the sea to burn the sky- I fight the seasons change yet all the faces fade away-I lose it all and wonder why- fingerprints trapped in a photograph never return
Whoa-oh I can't believe this time it's coming after me and I say
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Hold back the tide it pulls me to the other side and I say oh...
Track Name: Beyond Repose
Beyond Repose
Will you give back the day?
A whispered plea in the night, in a world we cannot tame
If only, I never
So desperately we beg but never to return
On and on it goes, what are you waiting for?

The time in between you waste accounts for most of our days
Of that you cannot learn
But what if, and why that?
So desperately we search, but the answers never show
On and on it goes, what are you waiting for?

Hold on to now
Don’t you reach for dawn
When someday comes, will you frown? No one knows when you’ll go
No regrets, someday is now

On and on it goes, what are you waiting for?
Hold on to now
Don’t you reach for dawn
When someday comes, will you frown? No one knows when you’ll go
Track Name: Embodied Chaos
Embodied Chaos
Wired to impress and please, consuming identities
Looking up and taking mental notes
Passionately agreeable, extreme ends of high and low
Overwhelmingly unpredictable

I can’t take myself any longer there’s nowhere to go
In too deep no reason to bother the fault is my own

Opinions are reversible, distrait, disturbed, emotional
Sheltered and unfit for solitude
Welcoming deep and wakeless sleep, obligations never keep
Only time will heal what’s been pursued

I can’t take myself any longer there’s nowhere to go
In too deep no reason to bother the fault is my own
Track Name: The Accuser
The Accuser
Come with me he said with a smile, leave your trivial life for a while
It’s all too familiar, temptation takes its hold
All these painful moments alone

Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I helped you see your life exist with no pain
Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I thought you’d be willing to live life this way

I’ll go with you, she said with a smile, it’s been so long let’s walk for a while
She can hear the voices calling, wretched evil taunting
It’s all too familiar, temptation takes its hold
Just a few more painful moments alone

Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I helped you see your life exist with no pain
Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I thought you’d be willing to live life
Eternally, I’ll fall asleep and fade away exist no more

You won the battle, showed us all you were a fighter
You took the devil by the neck spat in his fire
So tell me now, what could make you
Tighten the rope around your neck and swing the noose

It’s all too familiar, the accuser takes his hold
No more painful moments alone

Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I helped you see your life exist with no pain
Your time has run out, don’t come crying to me
I thought you’d be willing to live life
Eternally, I’ll fall asleep and fade away exist no more
Track Name: Divergence of Choice
Divergence of Choice
First failed attempt of larceny will be the last you’ll ever see
A lesson learned without regret
Absurd decree and locked away, yet getting stronger everyday
Time made him thirsty for revenge

In times like these it’s hard to stay afloat, without letting go
In times like these it’s all in who you know

Bang, bang he did it again, looks like our boy has hit the top
Simple game he treats this life as
Cheat, thief, hero to some, hold your breath he’s on the run
Somehow helps us to go on

Each great escape a brilliant plan, cannot contain this fearless man
Admired though a guilty rogue
Another hit he gets away, law’s getting stronger everyday
A great reward brings certain death

In times like these it’s hard to stay afloat, without letting go
In times like these it’s all in who you know

Bang, bang he did it again, looks like our boy has hit the top
Simple game he treats this life as
Cheat, thief, hero to some, hold your breath he’s on the run
Somehow helps us to go on

Shot him down his story’s ended
Buried but his legend lives on now

Bang, bang he did it again, looks like our boy has hit the top
Simple game he treats this life as
Cheat, thief, hero to some, hold your breath he’s on the run
Somehow helps us to go on
Track Name: Two Minutes Hate
2 Minutes Hate
And I saw the red and the crimson the rockets reverberate through the night
And I gaze into your soulless eyes your acquiescence suffocates
(Lies lies) A facade built to conceal our
(Hate hate) A mercurial poisoning
(Lies lies) I cannot let this break me
(I’ll swallow your soul to deconstruct these God damn lies, lies) A temple to enshrine our
(Hate hate) The blood of our savior
(Lies lies) Temptations borne of ecstasy rise, inflame, and we die
Two minutes hate
And I rise to a shade of gray a consciousness between heaven and hell
And they saw the sins of awareness my subjugation lacerates
(Lies lies) A facade built to conceal our
(Hate hate) A mercurial poisoning
(Lies lies) I cannot let this break me
(I’ll swallow your soul to deconstruct these God damn lies, lies) A temple to enshrine our
(Hate hate) The blood of our savior
(Lies lies) Temptations borne of ecstasy rise, inflame, and we die
Two minutes hate
On my heart this takes its toll the purity of my soul
I close my eyes to this world and succumb to release
I find myself drawn to you despite the evil you do
And all I want from this world is the passage of time
These fives and fours are the same the times I cry out your name
The scythe that follows the pain is a drifter’s reprieve
Frustration, temptation
Exist in desolation
This bleeding, my breathing
I never wanted it to end
Two minutes hate...
Track Name: Wicked Truth
The Wicked Truth
It’s raining and he walks alone
Soldiers walk the streets at night, and this he calls home
The music, it helps with the pain
Every night he lies awake, praying his faith will not fade
No, you will never have control
You must fight the temptation to end your quest for the truth

Passing through life like a shadow in the dark
How can I stand out when I’m so uncertain?
Show me the path for which my life is chosen
If you choose to speak, will I know it is you?
Is it too bold to request more from you?

No, you will never have control
You must fight the temptation to end your quest for the truth

Our blood is thick and in lies the truth, it’s flowing through us all
But through the years our blood has been poisoned
Poisoned with chosen lies
Forcing our ways with bloodshed and fear, victorious we will rise
The power we’ve won has tortured the soul and I’m left cold and alone

This can’t be the end I’m not satisfied with this trivial life, there’s got to be more
But I’m getting tired and I fear the end is near oh God don’t let us fall

No, you will never have control
You must fight the temptation to end your quest for the truth
