Track Name: Bleed Myopia
Sometimes I want to think you never happened to me
Skin crawling, unable to breathe
For so long I felt like I was home
The world would fall apart
Too far to see the start
But not where things went wrong

With this life in hand
Finally on the way to the promised land
Wash myself of guilt
I will bleed myopia
Bring on the chill of night
Tomorrow will be filled with all your light
Please I need this
I will bleed myopia

Bring deception down
Crumble to the ground
And pray for healing
Pray for healing now

Sometimes I want to think you never happened to me
Skin crawling, unable to breathe
I know I can never undo the things I’ve done
I’m seeing clearly now
Track Name: Face of the Shade
Under cover of darkened nights
Reality begs through foreign eyes
Fighting for another chance to live
I just move on
It won’t be long
Another time, another place
Hiding behind the guise of a trusted face

Pry out my eyes
A fire burns inside
The only way to survive
Born from denial
So little left behind
Sweet innocence expires
I weathered the storm
I am your end

Taste revulsion
Beg for death
Carnal torment
Torrential dismemberment

Under cover of darkened nights
Reality begs through foreign eyes
Fighting for another chance to live
I will move on
It won’t be long
This time, this place
No longer hiding inside a dark and twisted state
Track Name: Leave the Bleak
Reflections in the rise
Swallow you whole, your demise
This filth spreads like malcontent
Crushing, obscene, disrupting the stream
I won’t put out the fire
Gather as one, ignite desire
Gather as one

Come with me create the future we all seek
Morning light will silence night and reach for right
Live and breathe and be the future we can see
Leave the bleak so we can be truly free

Frantic, focused, and strong
Annihilation to overcome
Too late, to wait, too late
Dance with me where freedom is free
Track Name: Ascension
We are still sleeping so deep,
In walking through this world
Leaving nothing behind, we’re running out of time
To wake up and take back all that’s lost
Remember what we’re fighting for, what we’re dying for

Release me, I won’t deny that I’m ready to die
Erase me, I promise you now that I’m stronger and I
Will not be left alone to struggle I will rise up again
And breathe in the air is so sweet oh so sweet
I’m rejecting this ending again

Fight with me I’d love to be the end of all your insecurity
This time we cannot run I’d follow you for only one
More chance to feel alive

We are still sleeping my efforts burnt to the ground
Take what’s left of my pathetic state and tell me what you’ve found
A shadow that cannot mend, too sorry to understand
I’ll find a way to set things straight here’s hoping that it’s not too late

I will not be left alone to struggle I will rise up again
And breathe in the air is so sweet oh so sweet
I’m rejecting this ending again
It’s worth the struggle forever and then
Track Name: Return to Ash
Why am I always suffering
Suffer through what makes others die
I won’t give in

Disillusion, I will never falter
Evolution, made my mind
Determination, will see me through this
Breathing not beaten I’ll survive
I’ll survive

So alone I will not return to ash
I am my enemy, my own sweet adversary
This fire consuming all that’s past
And I swear that I’ll make it

Fade away
Put this hate behind me
It’s all coming back

I’ll survive
I am my enemy
I’ll survive
I will not return to ash
Track Name: The Charade
Just when you thought the end was near
This time replace the pain with fear
Deconstruct ourselves savor the rain
I’m a broken man with everything to gain

Waste my life creating this senseless strife
To which I am enslaved
The memory is all that remains

When the sky does fall
Will we have the strength to see through it all
The slaughter and sin within
Never again
I won’t fail to bring you down
And see through it all
Within the slaughter and sin
Never again

Release me I’m in agony
Face me, remember what we could be
Lost inside the charade we have made
I won’t forget your name

Breathing in the scent of a summer’s day makes me
Remember just how empty this world can be

Oh, how the same beauty can seem so damned
It can’t take me away
Track Name: Blight
I feel the sun like a knife in my eyes dealing death on impact
Another hit it’s so infectious just one more line
I can’t deny twisting and turning, parading my own mind
Ever growing yet never knowing, let’s end the lie

Ill-fated endeavors
A wasteland to bury shame in
A promise remembered
Collapse into oblivion

Panic turns the impulse
Breeding decay
With no place to shelter
Losing grip from far away

In fire scream higher
Words fade away
Electric disaster
Ignite the rain
Track Name: One and the Same
To fit the world in his hands
He paid for it in the end
He lost everything

You locked him away and threw away the key
Stranger to the day, silent as can be
Staring and bearing the weight of a hatred
Losing his mind

What if we’re wrong
With no place to belong
It’s all the same
What have we done
And we will never have one
It’s all the same

Take it back, take it all back
He’s up against a wall so close to the fall
And I realize maybe this is all in mind

You locked me away and threw away the key
Stranger to the day silent as can be
Staring and bearing the weight of a hatred
Losing my mind

What if we’re wrong
With no place to belong
It’s all the same
What have we done
And we will never have one
It’s all the same
We’re all the same
Track Name: The Uninvited
No, I think I lost my way
See, all the mistakes that were made
I can’t believe just what I need to be free
Now look at me, just look at me
So we can dream

I am lost without you
I miss your sin so near
And I know just what you’d say
That I would fear
Go away, far away

So, this must be the day
Here, I scream out your name
I fucking tried and won’t deny that I lied
Now look at me, just look at me
So I can die
Track Name: All Will Shatter
I am such a beautiful fucking disaster
So lost and alone with no place to call home
Pride has run me through
And all I ever wanted was to tell you

I am a beggar
A forgotten endeavor
And I will never
Be what you need forever

I am to blame
For this is insane
You never asked my why
But it all will shatter again
Lost in the way
The way I already tried
Punished by my lies

Too many nights I gave up
I let it fall apart
I left you there so unaware
Of why I could not be the one
I made such a mess and it can’t be undone
Track Name: Subliminal Reign
Bring on deception
Power our deliverance
Soothe the ebb of your domain
Laugh away intolerant
Combatant of reason
And hail your own never-ending treason

Enter guile
Relentless betrayal
Indoctrinate and sublimate
Forlorn existence
Trepid, decaying, and useless
We denounce your reign and take back life again

Wither—the shameless fall apart in darkness
Slither—and portray salvation
Detained by ritual
We’re faced with change alienable
Skewed horizons flashing promises
Never doubtful we will rise

We rise
We rise
In darkness
We will rise
