Track Name: Awakened
Descend, awake
Unconscious of the pretense chosen to escape
I remain calm while time decides
Track Name: When Will You Know
Move to change
Unravel the decay
Prepare to witness two minds become one

I know who I am and I know who I was
I seem to know many things and I always have
(you do too)
When will you see just like I see
The looking glass is there, look through
When will you know just like I know
You already know...

All there, all there inside you
There, there for you

What you think you could be
You really could be
What you think you know might be right
But for some reason we choose to deny
Giving our trust to them to tell us what is real

Tell us how we feel
Tell us what we know
Tell us we need a god to
Tell us

Don’t you know you know?
You know you know

All there, all there inside you
There, there for you

All there inside you
When will you know
Track Name: Scathing the Sky
Ok, I get it
This is more than just another pretty voice inside my head
You will be heard won't you
You've got something to say don't you

Nothing I haven't heard before
But coming from you it means so much more
I will no longer stand for the plan
As above so below, no more doors

I don't wanna shut my mouth no more
Wanna do the things I could do before
Everything you gave to me
You took from me
So full yet so empty

I used to be someone
They used to see me
Where are my miracles this time?
It's never enough, you know me

Falling into this memory
I'm always running and never knowing
Falling into this memory
Always changing, my past replacing

Held the cross heard the sound in the way
But it doesn't mean a thing today
No one can hear in my head, it’s better that way don't want them scared
You think I should be ok, don't you see I can see everything
I'm tired of forgetting just to remember again

Shine your perfect light down on me
I can see it if I try
I've always seen through your cracks and I’m still ok

Nothing you can say will ever change my mind
Nothing you can say will take this away
Try as you will to comfort to me
It’s never enough, you know that, you know me

Falling into this memory
I'm always running and never knowing
Falling into this memory
Always changing, my past replacing

I’ve touched the sky before, I remember everything
Was that also part of your plan?
I've seen your light before I was ever anything
Do you still wish I would forget?
I won't forget
Track Name: Afraid to Think
You're falling in slow motion
How can you expect to soar when you can barely stand
(I reach out my hand)
This distance in between saddens me
Despondent, paranoid
How come you can't see you?

You hide in your lies just like a whore in disguise
You're not really hiding in your own eyes
I'll bleed because you don't, I'll be free because you won't
Soon you'll have no one left to disappoint
Careful what you wish and dream

Wallow in your shadow, just don't forget to look outside
Don't miss your chance to just be, who you are
We love you just the way you are
We love you just the way you are
Just the way you are
I'm so close to giving up
Just give me one more reason to...
Track Name: Distant
God Damnit!
I'm so fucking tired of standing still
Dissolve it all for the thrill
There's so many signs and reasons
Open your eyes
I just want to stay away today
Remove the tongue I'd have to bite
I'm trying to fly
You won't move
All love, all fear, all for you
All you desire, all for you
Don’t waste with lies inside you
There's so many lined up behind to fill our places

I can't stay in here anymore
I cant feel, I can't express myself
I feel me pushing away, away

Speak love for your brothers
Your actions spit in their face
You’re not supposed to shit where you eat
Pollute the water you intend to drink
Under all of this anger, this fire won’t go away
You are my life, my brothers
This is the only way
The gathering has spoken
When will we start to listen?
It’s bigger than you, more important than me

I can’t stay away for too long
I need the pain, I need this fear
So I remember why
I’m distant, but not gone

I wonder does it bleed
I wonder what if I push
I wonder can this bleed
What happens if I push
I wonder can this bleed if I pick at it
I wonder if I push will it all fall down
I wanna see if it bleeds, that’s why I pick at it
I wanna watch it fall down, that’s why I push

I can’t stay in here anymore
I need to breathe, I wanna scream
Why won’t you let me speak?
I’m distant, but I’m here

Do you see what I see?
Do you hear what I hear?
Do you feel what I feel?
Do you know what I know?
Track Name: Breathe Scream Speak
I guess I'll cut off my own leg
Because I cannot break the chain that holds the ball that keeps me with you

I crave your light, it soaked my seed
You're my all, you know I'm weak
But I'll hang on if you let me

From lips to eyes I feel your needs
The wants we need devour

You want, I give
But what you have you know I’ll take

You want it all
(I’ll have it all)
But I still have control

This pretty pill I’m taking
This pretty pill I’m on
Has got me all wrapped up
Like itty bitty pieces of an empty whole
This pretty pill
You’re such a pretty pill

I took your breath away and in turn took your voice away
Now you can answer any question except this one
What do you want?
(Bitch)

So don’t you feed my will but call me a stray
And don’t you string me out to see if you can

I hang this noose from my hand to watch you choke
I lift this finger just to let you stand

Chaotic comfort
Pain and pleasure
Perfect, pretty, mine

You know I hold onto the blade
Still these wounds won’t break this chain

Swallow you down my precious disease
Growing on me like the scabs on my knees

You’re my tourniquet
Tie me up so tight

Make me so hard that I ohhh no
Make me so hard

Feed it, waiting, watch it growing
Starve it, tease it, poke it, showing
Desperate efforts, no control
Sinking further hardly floating
Fear is breeding, taking over
No restraint and no recover
End is here and there’s no other

This pretty pill I’m taking
This pretty pill I’m on
Has got me all filled up
Like starving little pieces of a plastic soul
This pretty pill
You’re such a pretty pill
This pretty pill I’m taking
This pretty pill I’m on
This pretty pill I’m taking
You’re such a pretty pill
Track Name: Escape, I
Wake up, you haven't given up yet
Dig in (yeah that's it), but deeper still
You don't like what you see, but you can't run away

There is no you, there is no me
Different parts of a whole, one in the same
And if there is no you, there is probably no me
No reason to fear or separate at all
Different parts of a whole, all the same
Escape I, feel I, must I, bye bye bye

Unravel the mystery left with me
Revive the dead parts of me
I am not about to stay here rotting
The smell of death is sinking into my skin

I am not alone, a piece of a whole
Escape I, feel I, must I, bye bye bye

Give up, give in
Blah blah fuck I have done this before
The sweat, the sin
Yeah yeah yeah we are drowning in it

The tune is changing, the rhythm flowing
The song starts where it stops, there's no knowing
This tune is changing, the rhythm flowing
The song starts where it stops, there's no knowing

Here it now, sing it out, our new song, sing it loud
Here it now, sing it out, our new song, sing it loud
Track Name: Hidden (things of my own) [feat. Pillz]
Calling, waiting, taking in need too fast to see
Splitting, weaving, open the sky up there up high
Eluding the eyes, hidden in sight, cascading light, moon-like they shine
Malignant? benign? something divine?
What do they hide so deep inside?

One of the taken?
Where then have you taken me?
(A little Place a home far away)
And now forsaken, left with what you put inside me
(You’ll soon be found)
A lamb to slaughter or one of the chosen ones?
(We’ll be waiting, we’ll be waiting)
And if rejected watch close to see what it does

Truth they hide in the tales we tell
Nothing seems to stay buried forever

Hiding, dancing high in the sky
My mind is blind, I am mine
I'm me, I'm them, I'm us, I'm dust
Evaporate your trust

A private showing with nothing ending, but everything changing, separating

One of the taken?
Where then have you taken me?
(A little Place a home far away)
And now forsaken, left with what you put inside me
(You’ll soon be found)
A lamb to slaughter or one of the chosen ones?
(We’ll be waiting, we’ll be waiting)
And if rejected watch close to see what it does

And to see
Where it sleeps, if it bleeds
The needle is deep, they've got me
It’s not real I can't feel
How have I got here?
Ahhh now I've got fear
I’m pried, my fronts rear
Inside I'm un-geared
Re-adhered red-haired
Sent here to repair or confuse the aware?
Now awake, the fun is here

I see your holes in my sky, I want to be there with you
I see your holes in my sky, I want to come with you
Track Name: How Delicate
These memories are not my own
Who is this that dreams of me?
Too much time has been crossed
And this face is not mine
What lies beneath is quite sure
You don't want to see deeper
This mask I wear is starting to break
It’s made of porcelain
How delicate is this illusion you call me

Even if I found the right words to explain
You still wouldn't understand
If I could find a way to bring it all to life for your eyes
You still could never see
This mask I wear is starting to break
It’s made of the finest crystal
How delicate is this illusion I call me

The masks we wear will all break
Made of our perfect lies
How delicate will be our hearts when we're forced to see
Track Name: Safe Away (feat. Chela Harper)
Tired of screaming, same dance same song, nothing changing
Long for some relief, a conscious way away
Surroundings’ out of tune, it’s the wrong melody
It seems I cannot affect this, every move I make takes me further away

Overtaken by a certain sense of animosity
Nothing you could say will calm my nerves at all
I'll hide safe away

Listen to the thoughts in between the soul and sin, I can see the fire
Anchor to a place where I'm free of this despair
I can feel that all I need, all I need is there
This isn't another conversation for you to lead
I just don't have the strength left inside me to become clearer
All I need is there
I need to find my safe away (where I)
I need to find my safe away (where I)
Won't link you
Won't link you to pain

Overtaken by a certain sense of animosity
Nothing you could say will calm my nerves at all
I'll hide safe away

Allow this evil in, make it a bed and lie with it
Weightless, I lose my balance again

Overtaken by a certain sense of animosity
Nothing you could say will calm my nerves
I need to get to my
Safe Away
Safe Away
Track Name: Falling Deeper
A time to suffer past
Just one demon left, me
A perfect escape, a sweet poison, another reason to sleep
Hide away in here, hide away in here
There is no one else but me, in here

To remember now, things forgotten with a clear perspective, as if for the first time
All the reasons seem perfectly clear in this new, blue, light

Given choice, given chance to change I will
Be my heart for all to see, me

It seems funny now to compare who I was when I built this
And this being who stands here now
Nothing felt good, beauty was absent
Or my eyes could not see what was there all along
A lifetime may have been wasted if not for this invention
And this intention to ascend
The wall which is a metaphor
A concept of isolation and reflection
Emphasis on the reflection

That’s why I built the wall (to learn how to love)
That’s why I built the wall (to find peace and forgive)
That’s why I built the wall (to take the life of my ego)
That’s why I built the wall (to remember my choice)
That’s why I built the wall (I built it up so high)
That’s why I built the wall (I built it up so hard)
I tried to blame everyone but I’m the only one in here

That’s why I built the wall
That’s why I built the wall

Now that it's falling down, now I know
Track Name: Inexorable
.............................................
Track Name: Tearing the Whole (feat. Chela Harper)
What divides the one and the same?
The line in which we kill but feel no pain
Absolve from feeling, disconnect from the whole
Find a way to devise a wall to maintain resolve

All free to dissolve, caught between these walls

Why see our lies, release this guise protecting our precious sterile eyes
Why realize we justify consumption, greed, beyond our means, feeding our demise

Ion to insect, star to flame
Where is the unity misplaced?

Lie, fall, rebel, console
We're spinning down and out of place...
I need to find a space
I'm lost in this single spoken verse

All free to dissolve
Caught between these walls

Beliefs become our actions
Common ideals overlooked
Confinement breeds stagnance
Parasitic we betray the core

Why see our lies, release this guise protecting our precious sterile eyes
Why realize we justify consumption, greed, beyond our means, feeding our demise

Bring discriminate destruction
A plague to bring the balance back to order
With this imminent disaster
Break the human species down and down
Until we can learn the respect of symbiosis
