Track Name: Landmines
I know why I’m here now
See the signs
Let my own fate find me
Stars aligned
To blink is to miss our chance at the world
Mankind an abyss, into which we might fall
And so on and on, on and on we toil
Our fantasies collide, leading us to spoil
All our plans are foiled
Searching for the promised land
But my feet stuck in the sand
No surrender, can’t withdraw
Relief appears upon my sword
Should I fall upon my sword?
And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now
All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down
As we rise up, I must fall
Time and again I must fight for the cause
Lines stretch and they tear
Will I be overthrown?
And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now
All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down
As we rise up, I must fall
The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow
This muted melody is falling on deaf ears now
Landmines reside under the path that I’m consigned
Will I come undone?
Thorn vines entwined around the neck to foil my cries
Silent in this war
And I’ll be sober now, there’s no four leaf clover
Can’t see through windows made of gold
So un-blind
The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow
This muted melody, the call for clemency’s vetoed
The writings on the wall, it’s time for me to fall, let go
The fable we were fed, the pathway only led, to finding this fool’s gold
Don’t know why I’m here now
See false signs
Fate will never find me
Stars maligned
I don’t know why
Track Name: Badge of Honour
You know my name
You know my name, I heard you calling me
Out again
I know your game
I know your game, the etiquette I break
The rules of play
We are the same
We are the same, though you could never tell
Through all the walls you’re making
Free to hate you
Free to berate you
This conscience won’t be controlled
What if I wonder?
What if I ponder?
What if we wonder?
Would we still feel these chains constrain?
All I know
Is all I’ve ever shown
And I won’t concede
The need to be free
It’s a dead man’s walk
And though dead men cannot talk
We won’t feel your shame
We won’t play your game
Everything in one hand
Can be broken by the other
And every blow that you land
Will be worn as a badge of honour
Free to hate you
Free to berate you
This conscience won’t be controlled
What if I wonder?
What if I ponder?
What if we wonder?
We’ll light this fire you can’t control
After all, this fire you can’t control
This fire you can’t control
Track Name: Painted with Grey
Grind it down
Blank canvas it calls me, keeps drawing me to the heat
Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct
Outpour my soul and surrender it all to you
Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct
But the edge that I sharpened, made it the target
You blunted it and then cut my heart out
Dreams of the undefiled
To be unobscured
I’ll hold this pure
But I am the sanitised
And the well flows
To dilute my soul again
Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct
On top of the world, but the world falls away
I’ll light up the dark, then you paint it with grey, but I’ll stay
But this moth is drawn in, the flame is calling me back again
Though wings are charred again I’ll fly into the fire
Now Scrutinise
Bastardised
Its finalised
Idolised
Dreams of the undefiled
To be unobscured
I’ll hold this pure
But I am the sanitised
And the well flows
To dilute my soul again
Grind it down
Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct
Track Name: Soldiers
Played by the rules, but rulers choose the ones they abide to
Swim against the current, across the grain and follow through
It’s time to take the gloves off, free the storm we held onto
Stand tall
Fall in line
We are soldiers
Fall in line
And we’ll fight in the fields
Fall in line
Make them smoulder
Fall in line
‘Til we turn the tide
Fall in line
We won’t tire
Fall in line
Tormented is the soul that feels and
Burdened is the mind that reasons
So ask yourself ‘cause no one else can tell you what is right, what is wrong
So no one cares, do not despair, it is the choice that makes you strong
So go alone and throw your stone, release the hate you held so long
Your child is lost, but that’s the cost, this justice isn’t meant for us
Stand tall
Fall in line
We are soldiers
Fall in line
And we’ll fight in the fields
Fall in line
Make them smoulder
Fall in line
‘Til we turn the tide
Fall in line
We won’t tire
Fall in line
Track Name: Symbiotic
Pure of heart, Pure of soul
Without sense of self control
One fear to be left alone
Don’t regret what is done
Don’t fear it, let’s just run
I’ll adore you like a son
Seeds never sown
Through seasons they hold on
‘Til blossom breaks through
And far-fetched comes true
Here we are, now it starts
The story of two hearts
I don’t want to know the ending
Once I was abandoned, alone and disenchanted
You came and filled the emptiness
And I’ll never forget your face
Seeds never sown
Through seasons they hold on
‘Til blossom breaks through
And far-fetched comes true
From stars we are created
By stars we are dictated
With our chances understated
The bond we shared was fated
Your candle burns
Now light returns
So bright your glow
This heart’s on show
But brightest flames burn quickest
You’re riddled with this sickness
Facing your transcendence
I fear my independence
I am reaching out
Sense your leaving soon
Reaching out
Can’t hold on to you
Seeds never sown
Through seasons they hold on
‘Til blossom breaks through
And far-fetched comes true
From stars we are created
By stars we are dictated
With our chances understated
The bond we shared was fated
Track Name: Tides
See the signs
Sown throughout the gulf of time
The sway of tides
The clock within us synchronised
We are drawn
To the siren’s song
Take us with the waves
Reflections on
This flowing surface mesmerise
Shards of light
Beneath them our oasis lies
We are drawn
To the siren’s song
Take us with the waves
With our backs turned we cast away
But this throw, we can’t let go
Though we might feel lost
The albatross still flies with us
See the signs
Sown throughout the gulf of time
The sway of tides
The clock within us synchronised
We are born
Singing siren’s songs
Taken with the waves
Track Name: Before the Dawn
Time after time
We tell the same old lies
For we move mountains
Deluded eyes
Can’t see the certain truth
For it is blinding
Behind the guise
We are nothing more
Than carnal senses
We own the night
We own the darkest light
Where dreams are broken
We must go into the dark to see
We must fall down from this throne to free
When the world spins in silence know
That our story is told
No more words will be spoken
Left unseen, seeds will grow
For all our vanity was just a bluff
As we contemplate our worth
I look to death for a rebirth
Won’t the devil burn us down?
Or god bring floods so we may drown
Into the breeze, sow the disease
Without cancer there’s no cure
Under the sun, as it was once
Again soon it will be
We will find this throne was just a fantasy
When the world spins in silence know
That our story is told
No more words will be spoken
Left unseen, seeds will grow
For all our vanity was just a bluff
I hate what we’ve become
Search for the smoking gun
I hate what we’ve become
Hate you, hate me, hate all of us
Track Name: The Shepherd
Stone the true believers
Belief just leads to violence
And I condemn this shear brutality
And they’ll take what they’re given
And swallow it like poison
Surrender to this new normality
You’ll never be free
Why are you all so cold?
And why are all your eyes closed?
‘Cause I can’t fight this battle on my own
We steal the sun
We worship the undone
The world is in my arms
Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom
While I weep for better days
All the sheep have fallen to the wolves
But the shepherd will never yield
Angels, without wings will fall
With starlight we must find our own direction
My halo, with its pure white glow
This burden may soon choose to defeat me
It’ll beat me
My hatred, of this show
Is growing as the curtain disappears, it disappears
We steal the sun
We worship the undone
The world is in my arms
Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom
While I weep for better days
All the sheep have fallen to the wolves
But the shepherd will never yield
I can see no tomorrow
I can feel no rebirth
Though we’re drowning in sorrow
We believe the air is worse
Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom
While I weep for better days
All the sheep have fallen to the wolves
But the shepherd will never yield
Track Name: Mara
I walk on hot coals again
And wait for this reality to fade
The fear of losing
Denies me choosing a future
One without you
When you’re already gone
But we will meet again
When Mara does descend
And we will meet again
I creep through reality
No one can see what I hold in me
Now light is fading
The heart starts racing
And soon these gates will open
As eyelids close
I’m calling you, I’m calling collect on the line
I cling to the sublime
I’m feeling you, I’m feeling you through the unknown
I’m bleeding this dry stone
I’m holding you, holding you throughout the night
We’ll hide from the first light
And fall into, into the ether we’re bound
In dreams the lost are found
I know, this is not alright
But I show, nothing to the light
We get, but one chance
And I failed, so blind me from the light
I’m calling you, I’m calling collect on the line
I cling to the sublime
I’m feeling you, I’m feeling you through the unknown
I’m bleeding this dry stone
I’m holding you, holding you throughout the night
We’ll hide from the first light
And fall into, into the ether we’re bound
In dreams the lost are found
Dream sublime
Track Name: With Nothing We Depart
I sit and stare as I breathe in the despair
The time has come for life’s reflection
My plunders done, collected
In my head, the words I should have said
But lips held tight by my intentions
When souls are for sale, cash in
The sun falls fast this evening
I grasp the final flickering
The hues of gold, I craved so long
Comfort no more, bring comfort no more
My poisoned bones, will soon be turned to stone
My head held high, has fallen
The hues of gold, comfort me no more
As I begin to see
This vision disappears
Now I can finally hear
This chorus turns to sneers
We arrive with nothing
And with nothing we depart
The sun falls fast this evening
I grasp the final flickering
The hues of gold, I craved so long
Comfort no more, bring comfort no more
