Track Name: The Sky And The Fall
take a look

(take a look and process the sound)

find a way to

(I'll find a way)

weave the whole

(the fragments allow)

save your own

(save your own or risk all)

violations

(and memory)

be atoned


coming around

all the things

that I've seen, left to die

watch as the force ignites, bright


walking along the fine line

all of the ways I choose to be alone

lost so deep in my mind

caught in the throws of all (you allow)


this could be your perfect life

so take your time

and leave the line

show your maker

it's all for gold

so take your time

and leave the line

whether not we go again

still believe


(so weak)

playing the role human

the subtle role of living within the frame

patient, restless in delay

living a life through my haunted dreams



break through the sky

inhale the fear of the unknown

take your time

and bring yourself to the maker


walking along the fine line

all of the ways I choose to be alone

lost so deep in my mind

caught in the throws of all


we're caught in the throws of it all


collapsing

the internal structure

weep for me

maybe death can bring us

closer

all my life I'm feeling

closer

even time can't save me now


fuck


collapsing

the internal structure

weep for me

maybe death can bring us

closer

nothing
Track Name: Idle Hands
they'll come for you

they'll come back to make you suffer

for making light of their world

fantastic crowds

relative to the thoughts of all those abound

they'll take their pound of flesh

within a moments time

and feed it to you


silence sanctioned

for the time

wake up

take in the tide


the source of isolation

begs to be exposed


still alive

waiting on

(the hope for us all)

still alive

waiting for truth

(I'm waiting for the truth)


you can't escape the noise in your head

you can't escape the noise that's been said


failing to capture the wonder

of the simplest mind

(you speak with indifference)

still the faithful listen in

and close their eyes (they close their eyes)

and live the lie


the weight of the world and all your energy

make up your mind

the distant seas and turbulent geography

make up your mind


still alive

waiting on

(the hope for us all)

still alive

waiting for truth

(I'm waiting for the truth)


no

you can't escape the noise in your head

you can't escape the noise that's been said


runaway patrons of control

isolate passions working through


(still alive)


still alive

waiting on

(the hope for us all)

still alive

waiting for truth

(I'm waiting for the truth)


time awaits
Track Name: For Less
obscure, altered

awareness forerun by question

our source confirmed

god's children, so say we all

fractured,

just beneath the frame is nature

seduced by variance

but in truth, we are the same

inside

beneath your pride


there's a spark that grows bright

and brings to view

all of the things you knew

about me

tell me why,

what is behind

fashioned after your kind

the children grow,

coming around through the age

in some expected time

now they're taking to the sky


we will fly

we will find

we will know

the gods are a word on the page


sail away

assured in open arms

(wide open)

waiting for something else

to claim we are

(we are with the stars)

stay awake

remember who you are

(remember)

waiting for something else

to claim we are

(we are bound inside for our time)


deceived

by memory


my potential outlined

the feeble view

all of the people use

to bring shame

tell me why

my value denied

fashioned after your kind

the elders knew

coming around through the age

in some fantastic time

our existence comes to light


we will fly

we will find

we will know

the gods are a word on the page


sail away

assured in open arms

(wide open)

waiting for something else

to claim we are

(we are with the stars)

stay awake

remember who you are

(remember)

waiting for something else

to claim we are

(we are bound inside through out all of our time)


(singing)

look out into our creation

look up and gaze upon your self


(screaming)

look at me now

the same reflection

mirrored by creation

continued by our mien

look at me now

the same expressions

as observed by yourself

continued through our relics


vagrant under holocaust

searching for a new life

vagrant under holocaust

people thirsting for power

distant culture

overlapping

caught in the tangles of war


reclaim

the final word

the name will be heard

but not understood

if we are to continue

if we are to survive

honor

in accordance

can only support our brethren's

claim

the certain show desire

for unity

the blood that we share

no longer impaired

if we are to continue

if we are to survive

honor

in accordance

can only support our claim

for unity
Track Name: Vultaggio
Just breathe, Don't say a word.


The empty, consumes me, and buries me so deep,

The empty, consumes me, and buries me so deep,


All that you, could have done,

before the face, of the sun,

burns a mark, upon my heart,

upon my thoughts, discraced and flawed.

Seeking vengence, braced in pride,

seeking the truth, seeking your life.


Nothing can comfort me now, cant say why or how,

this fate was chance, this test of pain, this injustice



This cant be happening, this cant be happening.


CHORUS:

in my heart and in my head, consummated by their action, hollow and broken


in my heart and in my head, consummated by their action, shattered and vacant





And your light has left my sight, But your warmth remains with me...


For the love of life I have lost you, please return...





Suddenly taken broken, torn from peace, torn from her beauty,

She tries and she fights, But she cant break free,

Suddenly taken, suddenly broken, she cant breathe,


He takes, he violates, he, spoils, she, she screams

He breaks, her piece by piece, severs the link, between her and peace, Why-------




Nothing can comfort me now, cant say why or how,

this fate was chance, this test of pain, this injustice




This cant be happening, this cant be happening.



CHORUS repeat..



Speaking:

All that you, could have done,

before the face, of the sun,

it burns a mark, upon my heart,

upon my thoughts, discraced and flawed.

Seeking vengence, braced in pride,

seeking truth, seeking the life,

seeking the life, Im seeking your life.



He cant hurt you anymore, No more pain, No more suffering,

He cant hurt you anymore, no more pain, no more suffering.


So empty, this feeling, with out you, its hard to forget,

That Im so empty with these feelings, without you its so hard to forget



Your safe now, in the clouds, or in the ground.....
Track Name: Niacin
recall
everything you've made me
the fall of my securities
we all can relate
recall
some will make it over
some make it far under
we won't fail to wait
(c'mon)

now in times of progress
we're moving forward
cycles of birth and decay
returned
protecting all that is clean
torn form the ground
reconnect
then elevate

bow, forever
in the presence of all that is me
bow, surrender
before all that you seek

forever lost
for the pain within yourself
forever lost
slipping away
forever lost
for the past that claims the present
surviving
unscathed

she is the pain that starts the day
and never lets me be
this is the way i never meant to be
and i will walk away

closed now its set aside
unsure, define the line
peace please be for me
more than a word, more than a dream

give me your best shot
and count the open scars
give me your best shot
the flesh is raw
give me your best shot
cleanse yourself within
and just give me your best shot

(so i know to be your home)
faking the patterns of the clever
what a person you've turned out to be
making the moments last forever
when living the dream

(2x) she is the pain that starts the day
and never lets me be
this is the way i never meant to be
and i will walk away

haunted
by the failure of this type
can you see it with your eyes
you've got to walk away
questions for the faceless lies
brought out by silence
rooted deep inside
grow, grow

(resolved)
faking the patterns of the clever
what a person you've turned out to be
Track Name: Fallout
fallen

shadows dance upon a broken wall

faces of the awakened

we'll see them all


vile as a result of the past

the guilty consequence we see on the face of everyone

so wicked, classes of mutation emerge

the instinct to survive, motivates the conscious mind


lost in a world

where the damned walk hand in hand with the living

oh my god

the fallout washes over me


everything of value claimed

everything in the wasteland breathes


the population

decreases, they seek they're shelter

way down beneath

the surface, so contaminated

still they breathe

filthy breeds of human



wait

everything of value claimed

every second counts to me

everything in the wasteland breathes


for my survival

the choices foreseen

the weapons in holding

shall maintain the disease

for my survival

the choices between

the people shall know them

as elements of violence consumes them


so sleep

in the arms of the stars


decayed

statues of the mind decayed

(the flesh reciprocates)

decayed

statues of the mind decayed

(the flesh reciprocates)

the seasons change

(they're crossing over)

with the starved

(let's give them something)


all the infected will burn

they will burn


for my survival

the choices between

the weapons in holding

shall maintain the disease

for my survival

the choices foreseen

the people shall know them

as they burn


save me

from this world
