Track Name: Fractured
Fractured:

Cowards’ words hold no weight in this world.
To just stand by and blindly conceal the truth is no fate for me.

Unto to the others who hope to be redeemed:

It dwells in the minds of all humankind.
Encased in our lives; the daggers, the knives.
Deceit plagues the fractured soul longing repair to end this despair that tears you down.

In open arms, you’ll find release.
Lay down your sorrow and be seen.
In the light of this opportunity embrace the truth and be free.

Monuments of the past mean nothing now
Once the charade has been seen.
It’s time to cast aside your premonitions.
Find strength in unity and seize this opportunity.

It dwells in the minds of all humankind.
Encased in our lives; the daggers, the knives.
Deceit plagues the fractured soul longing repair to end this despair that tears you down.

In open arms, you’ll find release.
Lay down your sorrow and be seen.
In the light of this opportunity embrace the truth and be free.

If you can find the courage to make change in yourself
Then all of us around you, we will build you up.
If you fall down we will build you up.

On a darkened road there is a way home.
Hold truth near to your heart when time tears us apart

In open arms, you’ll find release.
Lay down your sorrow and be seen.
In the light of this opportunity embrace the truth and be free.
Track Name: Darker Days
Darker Days:

Where were you when purity died?
When my life was shattered before my eyes?
It’s no wonder I felt so empty.
Always blind to the sin that always dwelled within.

Wicked ways make the fissure split.
A betrayal I won’t forget.
No trust found in the sacred one.
Servant turned serpent scum.

There is a point of letting go.
Open yourself to face and know the truth.

Take this from me, this vacancy; uncertainty.
The needing to be something else than this world has made me.
Grant me peace and be redeemed.

In one moment my perception transformed.
Your words: transparent in the calm before the storm.
You swore you’d never be hollow like the rest.
But here we are with your vices confessed.

Wicked ways make the fissure split.
A betrayal I won’t forget.
No trust found in the sacred one.
Servant turned serpent scum.

There is a point of letting go.
Open yourself to face and know the truth.

Take this from me, this vacancy; uncertainty.
The needing to be something else than this world has made me.
Grant me peace and be redeemed.

Silence falls on this hallowed ground.
A fallen coward cannot be found.

You are scum; you are but filth.
You broke the bond and what was left of it is rage.

No turning back.
Darker days left in the past.

There is no hope for you.
So why should I burn too?

Wicked ways make the fissure split.
A betrayal I won’t forget.
No trust found in the sacred one.
Servant turned serpent scum.

There is a point of letting go.
Open yourself to face and know the truth.

Take this from me, this vacancy; uncertainty.
The needing to be something else than this world has made me.
Grant me peace and be redeemed.
Track Name: Become One
Become One:

I feel the constant strain as our fortunes wane.
A malformation breeds, born from our selfish deeds.

The falling ash reminds us of a darkened past turned to dust.

Come alive and hear the summoning to make a change;
A world becoming one.

To rectify the wars we waged against ourselves and abandon hearts where corruption dwell.

The falling ash reminds us of a darkened past turned to dust.

Come alive and hear the summoning to make a change; a world becoming one.
Come alive and end the suffering. We’ll make a change; a world becoming one.

Infinite. Growing indestructible.
We are the legions of metamorphosis, causing this dead world to breathe again.

Rise up together and…
Become one.

Come alive and hear the summoning to make a change; a world becoming one.
Come alive and end the suffering. We’ll make a change; a world becoming one.

Become one.
Track Name: Paradox
Paradox:

The waves crash below an ominous sky.
Serenity dwells behind these uncovered eyes.
A callous core leaves me searching for more.
Nowhere to hide, when the answers still abide.

Disconnected from what used to comfort me,
A new foundation and freedom is what I seek.
(When the divine fall).

Swept away by the tides, holding on to the last strand of hope.
Are we just waiting to die or will we find our salvation?

I feel so empty staring into the abyss.
No comfort is found as I reminisce
Of the days I blindly fell into their form.
Now I, alone, desire to brave this storm.

Disconnected from what used to comfort me,
A new foundation and freedom is what I seek.
(When the divine fall).

Swept away by the tides, holding on to the last strand of hope.
Are we just waiting to die or will we find our salvation?

Searching for meaning, for the truth, beyond these walls confining me.

To overcome the paradox and find your own truth.

And I will fight for this right to be in another light.
I will not fear I will not fail.
I am the author of this tale.

Freedom is found with an open perception not in judgment or hate.
We must rebuild our foundation before its too late.

Swept away by the tides, holding on to the last strand of hope.
Are we just waiting to die or will we find our salvation?
Track Name: Of Faults And Failures
Of Faults And Failures:

In the darkest corners of my mind
Where all sense of purpose is to be left behind
A cavity grows beneath the whispering of throes.
“Decaying soul why do you betray us all?”

With my mind at unrest I seek to confess
I’ve grown weary from this struggle
To take my fate in my own hands and finally stand
Before the earth a purposeful man.

Too many days I’ve lain to waste waiting for a catalyst
While there’s a fire burning in me
A cavity grows beneath the whispering of throes
“Decaying soul why do you betray us all?”

With my mind at unrest I seek to confess
I’ve grown weary from this struggle
To take my fate in my own hands and finally stand
Before the earth a purposeful man.

I must search within myself for a sense of purpose.

This dream will not falter;
This dream alone bestows life in me.

With my mind at unrest I seek to confess
I’ve grown weary from this struggle
To take my fate in my own hands and finally stand
Before the earth a purposeful man.

Deliver me from apathy.
A sense of purpose will set me free.

Deliver me.
Track Name: Anchors
Anchors:

The mirror reflects an ugly shade beneath the false exterior.
Dust collects on these artifacts of when we last learned from the past.

We’ll rise as one.
Infect the core.
Bridging the gap between what we abhor and what we are.

This is all we have.
This is all I know.
Life became a farce far too long ago.

Breathe in the wonder of this world.
Let your mind understand these words.
There is no reason to fear the end of hate is near.

A kindred spirit lies under the sunken eyes.
Misery cripples the wise.
Guided all their life, now they hold the knife
And the moment has come to rebel.

Engraved in the mind with reality far behind:
The never-ending call to arms.

This sentiment will ring true.
You have the change in you.

Deception, hate and superficial ways must all see an end.
And your wounds, I will mend
Because when the siren sounds
My guidance will be found.

This is all we have.
This is all I know.
Life became a farce far too long ago.

Breathe in the wonder of this world.
Let your mind understand these words.
There is no reason to fear the end of hate is near.

When you understand these words,
This life before you will cease to hurt.
I am by your side and you can always confide in me.

This sentiment will ring true.
You have the change in you.
