Track Name: Spectrum
This existence is
Our only chance
The fragility of
A heart of glass
Discord, disarray
Between moments of silence
There are songs of joy
There are songs of joy

Will we finally see
The light at the end of our
Tragedies
Within our flawed existence?
With hands gripped on tightly
To comfort and safety
Will we let it go?
Here's hoping

With our self pride
Can we save ourselves?
Can we acclimate
To our self-destruction?

I await the day
We break our chains
Lend me your voices
To make a change

The failure of man
Is in our hands
The failure of man
Is in our hands

Will we finally see
The light at the end of our
Tragedies
Within our flawed existence?
With hands gripped on tightly
To comfort and safety
Will we let it go?
Here's hoping

With our self pride
Can we save ourselves?
Can we acclimate
To our self-destruction?

The failure of man
Is in our hands
The failure of man
Is in our hands

Will we finally see
The light at the end of our
Tragedies
Within our flawed existence?
With hands gripped on tightly
To comfort and safety
Will we let it go?
Here's hoping

The failure of man
Is in our hands
The failure of man
Is in our hands
The failure of man
Is in our hands
The failure of man
Is in our hands
Track Name: Follower
One blink,
One blink is all you need
To miss
Everything
How time flies by
Right before our eyes
She said "I'm here,
I'm always with you"
That was so long ago
She said "I'm here,
You know where to find me"
But you no longer show

Anymore.
I've lost my way
I have lost my home.
Everything I did
Was for us
Anything you wanted
I did it for you.
What did that leave me?
Take a look
From inside,
See my world of disgust.
Weary bones, tired eyes
And empty bottles.
I have but one

Follower
On my own
Who keeps me up
Late at night.

Though by my side
Day after day,
I find no solace
In your company.
I'd give anything
To be set free.
Set me free.

I can no longer muster
The strength
To carry on.

Bear witness to the
Failing of my senses
As I'm reduced to
Nothing but blood and
Bones enclosed in
Hessian skin.

There's nothing left
For me to give,
Nothing left for me to
Hold onto.
I'll learn to live
Without you.
With this burden.
I'll learn to move on
Without you.
Track Name: Oracle
From sands of famine,
To concrete paradise.
We all burn
Under the same sun,
Together we breathe
In the toxicity.
Yet still we're killing
For land to die in.
Our insatiable
Hunger for more
Leaves the ones in need
Withered down to bones.
A storm from the west
Swept up by the winds,
And set in its wake
The new world.

The weight of your pocket
Has no value to soul,
There's broken foundations
In a house made of gold.
Bridge the gap
Across this divide.

Dancing in black rain,
It permeates.

The walls of this home
Are crumbling down.
Collapse.
Until all is dust.

The weight of your pocket
Has no value to soul,
There's broken foundations
In a house made of gold.
Bridge the gap
Across this divide.

The walls of this home
Are crumbling down.
Collapse.
Until all is dust.

The weight of your pocket
Has no value to soul,
There's broken foundations
In a house made of gold.
Bridge the gap
Across this divide.
Track Name: Divide
I've been staring at the stars,
Thinking to myself.
What is there to gain from all of this?
Out of darkness show me the light ahead.
We are the lost and the damned
Assimilated to propaganda.
Constructs to keep us within their control.
And so it was and so it goes,
To venture blindly in this world unknown.
This is all I have left that I can hold onto.

We are the children screaming,
"Save us from ourselves."
Oh Oracle, can you
Guide my trembling hands?

Don't lose sight of whats
In front of you,
Or let time
Take control of you.
You are here now,
You're the king of today,
So leave our tomorrow
For the grave.
All our lives
Aspire to bloom.
Existence mitigated
As death looms.

We are the children screaming,
"Save us from ourselves".
We are the sleepless, dreaming
What's beyond this land.
Running scared of what's to become
You've forgotten how to breathe.
Oh Oracle, can you
Guide my trembling hands?

All of our lives
Aspire to bloom.
Assimilated,
And mitigated
As death
Looms.

We are the children screaming,
"Save us from ourselves."
We are the sleepless, dreaming
What's beyond this land.
Running scared of what's to become
You've forgotten how to breathe.
Oh Oracle, can you
Guide my trembling hands?
Track Name: Masquerade (ft. Daniel Whitty)
Running from my past transgressions
Hands drenched in sin
Struggling to find my words and
Where to begin
Would you grace me with your presence?
Can I be atoned?
There has to be another way
To live on my own

A reason to feel
A reason to breathe
All that I need to believe

Now I'm beginning to understand
What I've become, what I have done
No longer bound by your
False sense of virtue
And everything you took for granted
All the days, all the time
Every mistake you fault as mine
All the blood, the sweat, the tears
I've left it all behind

Upon this cross I'm left to bleed
Grant me the strength to be set free

A reason to feel
A reason to breathe
All that I need to
Become what you always
Wanted from me, am I
All that you need to believe?

My crown of thorns for all to see
Grant me the strength to be set free
Try to let it go
Leave me on my own
Try to let it go
Leave me on my own

A reason to feel
A reason to breathe
All that I need to
Become what you always
Wanted from me, am I
All that you need to believe?

Unbound truths bleed through palms
Your actions speak louder than words
Relinquish your soul to
The doctrines set by a false God

A reason to feel
A reason to breathe
All that I need to
Become what you always
Wanted from me
All that I need to
(be free)
A reason to feel
A reason to breathe
All that we need to believe

My crown of thorns for all to see
Grant me the strength to be set free
Left to bleed
Grant me strength
I will be
Soon set free
