Track Name: Abolition
Drain the world
Copious amounts of wealth are bled
from the able bodied workers

The nations are built upon equal standing grounds
The tides will rise
Then divided are the masses

Starving in the streets
the youth of a country
They seek no other way
Pushed underneath the waves
Drown in the dark streets

The people turn to their masters
seeking help in their
ever looming shadow
They find peace in their lies
Like rain pouring down now
The ancient debris pummels the earth

We couldn't stop the flood
The tides will rise and bury us all
We can't escape the lies
Drowning beneath we're buried alive

It's hard to escape
what is set on death
Severed and cold you wait
as you wait

Until the earth is wreckage
We will fight to open our eyes
Scattered with burnt fragments
On a ship of broken lies

Never wait on the wind
We've waited so long
The sails burnt to ashes
and the world forever gone

As colour grows
dim light vanishes
Collectively absolved from chance of escape
The world is plunged into a sea of abysmal flame
the world drowns in sorrowing pain
Sinking deeper into a distant hell
I am the tormentor
Crushing this foundation
Never to rise again

Patience is the last word you'll remember
As the end wraps around you
It grows closer to the world we surrenderd
Where the endless nights and fragmented dreams
Won't fade away
Track Name: Duality
I've done it again
and can't remember how
The story went again

It always ends like this
I swore last time was the last
But maybe I'll do it
I'll write it in
One more time
I'm losing my mind

I'll rip the pages
And bury beneath
I'll cut down the lies
gritting through the teeth

Now see what I've become
A saint bathed in the blood
of the innocent ones

It always ends like this
I swore last time was the last
But maybe I'll do it
I'll write it in one more time

Looking down at myself
Wanting (NO) Needing to go back
Back to the way things were
Because it can't end like
This!

Condemnation and Control
the words of the madman
will take hold

Self-destruction is binding me,
I can not control
what I see

The ink is running away from me

Everytime I escape
I put myself further in the shoes of the madman I've
become
Now see what I've become
A saint bathed in the blood of the innocent ones

Until my time is over
I will fight to realize
that the ink had run over
and now my words are my disguise

Oh my disguise (Oh no)

I can't take it back (Oh no)
I just never learned
Discarded like the rest
Another page
(Another page to burn)

What have I done now
They've been breaking my mind
I'm completely dead inside
I can't move
I can't scream
Trapped within my own pages
Fighting for the life I used to know

This is it
The last time
My final breath

They'll remember me
Etched in the pages
With stains of ash
Blood between the lines
Contorted memories

They'll remember me
Lost and alone now
I'm sitting with
the shadow that's
trapped within my hell
Track Name: Leviathan
Cast aside but bound by fate
My tyranny's delivered through the endless wake
A harbinger of death with no remorse
Broken as the bodies wash against the shore

Wait there for me to rise
In another life you might (you might)
have lived the lie they told you

You might have lived the lie they told

You people sat on top
Of the world you controlled
Only for an instant, as kings
Until the truth was retold

Now through my anger, my rage
It's written down the walls
Echoing the pain of your absence
Only to destroy it all

I am the void
of everything you had left
Everything held dear to you
I'll push, drag, and bury them
Down to the depths

I am the way
I am the end
I am the terror
The demon within
I am scarred
the fear felt in you
I have waited all this time
to watch it all fall (down) from you

I wont
Leave any of you alive
You see
You'll all see
Right through the lies
seen through my eyes

I am the way
I am the End
I am the terror
Track Name: Relic
They couldn't save themselves
Just find peace in the lie

Trapped within this world
This desolate dream
Bound by these chains
They were forged by the last ones
But who could of known
But who really cared?
They know not what they did

Grinding teeth at the sight
Face down in the dirt
They know not what they did

These indents and scratches
And long fading passages
They were right here
Living in fear

Calling out to the world unknown
Ghosts and phantoms
Their tears rain from the sky
that they burnt beneath

They cry out
As if we were the ones who left them here
Trapped for a thousand years

Dammed to haunt in echoes
Their memories tearing through
The walls

They fought
and got out alive
They'll until the earth
Is stained red

Forget the loss but we've survived this far
And we've lost it all
Just to become the ones who

Call out
to the world unknown
Hear them pleading
Hear us cry
Our storm siren's cry
Track Name: Affection (Part 1)
Haunting me
Fading out
I've been fading away

Brought to life
Cycle forward
In this constant state

And all we were
and all we are
We're fading away

We were the discord
We were the few, faint, and the restless
Gorging on the on thoughts
that we could live in peace
only to starve on the lies
that they put beneath them

Cry out belief
If you could see the liars as they crowd the streets
I can't believe
How many we let go
How many they killed
and how we fought to save them

Haunting me
We were the discord
Cry out belief
We fought to the last
No one could save them

Fading away
As the thought rang out
And no one could hear them
Cry out belief
Please cry out

Call me out
I've seen the people I loved
butchered just to see the glimpse of paradise
A look through the others eye
But all I see is every single one of you looking toward the sky

Cry out belief
If you could see the liars as they crowd the streets
I can't believe
How many we let go
How many they killed
and how we fought to save them

Haunting me
We were the discord
Cry out belief
We fought to the last
No one could save them

Fading away
As the thought rang out
And no one could hear them
Cry out belief
Please cry out
Track Name: Absolution (Part 2)
This vessel of echoed cries
will never be the same
We'll go on knowing
Nothing will change
we fought the tide
and killed this world
showing our hatred defines us

Endlessly drifting
A dark mass floating into the abyss
We are lost
Flooding waters come and gone
There exists
nothing but the sands of the past covering our fall
Grain for grain, encompassing the planet that once gave life

We've lived too long
and fought this hard
Not to let it drift away
or fall apart
and the only truth known through my scars
will be nothing less than a distant star

The dust has settled
We have become a relic in time
Lost - and to be discovered by more worthy

I have become the philosopher
Stuck in time
Perplexed
What can I do?
Can we go back?
All the questions I have
Will they remain unanswered?
Will they remain

This vessel of echoed cries
will never be the same
We'll go on knowing
Nothing will change
we fought the tide
and killed this world
showing our hatred defines us all

Ice locked into the sublunary world,
I feel the pulse
I feel the rage
Losing strength and finite
It's a calm end for now and forever

Let my story
not be in vein
This vacant ship is but a garden
It remains whether you grow or die away

Wishing it could be so different
Our potential, our dreams,
Wasted away in the mistakes of our past
its over
its over now

Yet - this lifeless vessel
it drifts away
Untethered, unguided,
I fear that it will never be found
The madness that came from above and below,
It took this world away
Blinded in my rage,
I could not see the mistakes of my ways
Oh but how,
how could I see through the veil of ecstasy?
Am I alone in my reprieve?
No......no
Or am I calling out to the other souls looking for a lost home?
Perhaps we lost our way
Maybe it was too late to change
I will not come back
