Track Name: Thanatos
With his feathered touch
And by his grace
He grants you eternal life
And by his hand
We suffer through
The torment of our slumber
when we wake
Decrepit and stripped of our wings
------------------
We will be forgotten
Track Name: Rebirth
Countless times
I've scavenged my memories (Memories)
For the hope and the love
That I had once before
A twisted enigma
A figment of my creation
While my foundation burns down
A living stigmatic vision told me not to drown
Inhale the water,
I'm sinking quickly now

Secrets are the fears that we keep in our lungs
Whispers in the dark diagnosed by the sunlight
Don't fill the night sky with venomous cries

Ocean eyes I cannot lie, I am drowning in time
Forgotten by the sirens, I've been living a lie

Recreate the being a gentle moment
Forever lost in the past
In my heart I know,
If this is love it will last

From the moment I set my crooked sails into this abysmal sea,
I found a new love for life, A grateful respect for it
I see now that everyone is born with the same heavy bones and Helium dreams as me
If only I could reach
If only I could speak and shower the world with the same admiration
And vision of a sinking ship rebuilt and brought to shore
Wouldn't that be glorious?
A boat that never sinks
A home that never breaks
A heart that's never bored

See those eyes that never stray, they become hazy empty holes
That gaze through the spirit like just another man to wound in war
Using all their momentum in their nightmares so they wake up frozen Solid staring at the door
Waiting for the rain to cry from the sky to fill the ocean floor
Like your fingers tied in knots, a beauty shimmers in your thoughts
You look up at the chart
A black bird flew out of the sky like Cupid's arrow to your heart
As it strips through your chest you smile at the knowledge
You stare at your treasure and say
"Look love, I caught it"

I woke up face down in the water
I washed up on a vibrant shore
I dreamt of finding my new heaven
Torn apart, I have been reborn

I have awoken to discover
I'm falling into a world of vagrant lights and sounds
Do my eyes deceive me?
Could I be dreaming?
If this is love, will it forgive me?
I woke up face down in the water
Torn apart, I have been reborn
Track Name: Samsara (ft. Garrison Lee)
We're all aspiring to be
So much greater than ghosts
Lately it's been out of reach
My wings have turned to stone
Do not remember me for what I was
Remember me for who I became and forget my flaws

Some live their lives hungry, searching for meaning
Others waste away, underneath the fucking ceiling
Gasping for air, underneath a sea
Of self loathing and misery

I claw my ears to silence all of this ignorance
Trapped in a blindside, of a society
If I could go back in time, I'd change it all
I'd change it all

Oh no, Nobody knows
We're constantly falling and failing to find
A reason for being alive

Hidden in our souls
Are crystal keys to expansion
And we're dying to feel the light on our skin
In our hands
We've lost ourselves

Have we forgotten just who we are?
Have we forgotten the things that you wanted to say?

Do not remember me for who I was
Remember me for who I became and forget my flaws

This is who we are
The ones you thought you could understand, but you can't and now we
Are moving on
Into the light
A place with consolidation of thought and mind

I'll pray for you, for the sake of progression
But don't mistake this for divine intervention
Everything is just taken for granted
I recognize we're born into false positions

Oh no, Nobody knows
We're constantly falling and failing to find
A reason for being alive
Track Name: Cancer
An abstract living dream
Of a cardboard cut-out meaning
Vivid highs and vibrant lies
of a slowly tearing seam

We are the plague, these are bleeding souls
We need a change, I find that there's a hole inside us all
(Hole inside us all)

Hearts made of wood
You pile into your fire
Burn down your white washed walls
So you appreciate the roof that falls

We are the plague
These are bleeding souls
We need a change
We are bleeding


We are the plague, these are bleeding souls
We need a change, I find that there's a hole inside us all

Terminal viruses
Fluctuating through
An Immaculate portrait of perfection
Mutations progress inside a world in distress
You can't escape the deception
A catastrophic progression
This is the end of an era
This is the start of a new

Hearts made of wood
You pile into your fire
As you dance around
Dizzy you fall asleep
Kaleidoscope eyes
Stare through stained glass windows
Burn them alive, just to see the embers tremble

Starlight is only bright
When the sky is clear
When the sky is clear
We fill our lungs (we fill our lungs)
We fill our lungs with the smog
And hold our breath, until we disappear
Track Name: Phantom
Take my soul
Take my pride away
Bury me deep into an early grave

Tied down to the floor
Writing from anxiety
Tired of trying and anxiously searching for doors
To a golden existence
We'll breathe in the hate and exhale greatness
Judgement is a shell and we can break it

Give life purpose

Take my soul
Take my pride away
Bury me deep into an early grave

Shattering bones
Inside your feet
We're all wandering
Searching for meaning
Endlessly
We're all wanderers

Sleep resets
Start again
Dig deeper create a canyon and
Force the elevation to descend
Gather strength
Throw your voice into the clouds
The rain will kill the fire
Flames will fear the sound

Can it be broken
Can it be forged together
Are you proud of the words you've spoken?
These words are yours forever

Take my soul
Take my pride away
Bury me deep into an early grave
I don't wanna go on this way
When the truth is a lie
It's a lie
Track Name: Adonis
Can you feel the memories drifting into dreams?

Tethered to the thought of discovering a cure
For genocidic consciousness
A drive to become more
Can you feel the memories drifting into dreams?
Across the golden moments are,
Seamless realities

Dire times call for drastic minds,
My grasping hands try to grab at angels stripped of flight
The woods set ablaze by fireflies
I left my fate in their embrace
As they grew into flights of stairs, their sparkling dance
Stole the air from my lungs
A game of change

Lost in Limbo with no shapes to take
Rebirthed by this deconstruction
Where we lie and wait
Falling from the night sky
Like decomposing stars
This temporary sight of things
Haunting shores
Searching for the light

We are the Ghosts of night
Constantly struggling to rebuild ourselves
We are the Ghosts of night
We are the whisps of souls that go dance in the air

Reformation birthed in dying
Wherein the soul that dwells
Is the strength to be one again

With his feathered touch
And by his grace
He grants you eternal life
And by his hand
Reborn are we
Awakened from our sleep
And when we rise
Decrepit and stripped of our wings
We will take to the skies

Lost in Limbo with no shapes to take
Rebirthed by this deconstruction
Where we lie and wait
Falling from the night sky
Like decomposing stars
This temporary sight of things
Haunting shores
Searching for the light
