Track Name: Paradise Lost
Step into the light, I’ll meet you there,
Patiently awaiting your arrival.
Turning into dogs we fight on cue,
Breaking all the rules.
Lessons learned,
We’re contemplating
Breaking all the rules.
The lakes are freezing, it's turning into winter.
Cold hits the air again, now I’m left with nothing.
As tired as the iris, with a sense of fleeting.
Welcome back to the garden, back to beginning.
Feet are underpinning.
Unrewarded, all is haunted, in the garden.
Nights are long with tides.
Follow the road again
To the separation and separate from within.
There’s a loss we’ve encompassed
And its drawing us to evil.
Destroy the enemy.
There’s a thousand different ways to die,
But not now, not without a fight.
As I sleep in silence she takes a bite from my neck.
The lakes are freezing, it's turning into winter.
Cold hits the air again, now I’m left with nothing.
As tired as the iris, with a sense of fleeting.
Welcome back to the garden, back to beginning
This is where I started from,
This is where I seal my fate.
This is where I started from,
This is where is I end this game.
Track Name: Living Life Never Made You Alive
I'm breathing stale air that circulates around me.
We're calling out, paralyzed, choking on luxury.
There's a battle approaching, these are conflicted times.
Surpass devastation, and realign.
I never saw the daylight, I let the shadows persuade me.
Bring convelesance home and guide me.
And now I see it, it's right in from of me, the answer.
If we rip our feet away from these chains, we'll stand together.
This design was built to withstand everything.
I've got the power to make you bold.
Breathing life in the comatose with a spineless gasp and pull.
Deceiver,
Living life never made you alive, handing life to a feeding plaque.
Track Name: Bloodless
We’re left in this slumber, we’ve been sleeping for years
digging to find the will to live, the will to appear.
Sheets rang, then bodies will hit the wall, sheets rang!
Bloodless, in a masterpiece fire will light the sky
skin will start to weep, fire breathing night.
Beckon to the moon to find a darker side, she rails me, she rails me.
Your majesty, and I am awakened to meet her.
This is a wrecking ball tied down by our eyes, held fast by the moon, release and destroy, release and destroy! Struggling to find light, while feeling your eyes on me, light, while feeling your eyes on me.
Break into the yard, break into the streets, try on your own mask for a change.
She, she goes away with grace in loving arms, never sway never sway.
Life is better today with a love in your eyes, life is better today.
I pray, I pray another day will make this right, will make this right
Take, take me with you.
Track Name: Our Bodies
Off balance, my weakness is walking on my own.
The challenge I feel, is facing what’s taking my footing.
Father show me the way.
We’re spinning in circles, they’re testing our arms.
We have lost our way again, our bodies are bound to fall.
Track Name: The Great Fire
Consuming the apparition with desire she moves like a shape seen in a dream.
The fire in her heart is burning like a thousand candles, yet her words are lost.
Sustain the outcome, disappear to a new beginning.
Sustain like the sun, the writing on the wall is uncovered.
We are a thousand lovers engulfed in a thousand arms.
And we’re too blind to see that we are killing ourselves
She’s a captivating lover, she heals my wounds.
Steadfast modesty!
Take the children from the elders beds, replace their lust with a stronger emotion.
The great fire burns, we are the only ones to control it.
Lay your weapons down, put down your arms.
Take your virtue back, we are the only ones
Don’t shield your eyes child, there are things you should know
like how we’re drowning in our own sweat, we are our own downfall.
Don’t shield your eyes child, we’ve made a crucial mistake,
we’ve been playing in the devil’s yard, now is the time for change.
Sustain the outcome, disappear to a new beginning.
Sustain like the sun, the writing on the wall is uncovered.
Close your eyes now, its time to say your prayers.
Seal your nightmare, this is a fantasy world.
She’s left sleeping in a time of war.
Cold through the air, its time to say your prayers ‘goodbye to the world!’
Track Name: To The Wayward Wife
At the window of my house
I looked out through.
I saw among the simple,
I noticed among the young men
a youth who lacked judgment.
As he walked towards her house, the night was setting in,
Death was getting closer.
Say to wisdom 'you are my sister'
and call understanding your kinsmen.
They will keep you from the adulteress,
from the wayward wife (and her seductive ways).
With persuasive words she'll lead astray,
her house is a highway to the grave.
She is loud and defiant, her feet never stay at home.
(She took hold and kissed him,
and with a brazen face she said)
"come, lets drink deep of love till morning,
lets enjoy ourselves with love!"
They will keep you from the adulteress,
from the wayward wife (and her seductive ways).
With persuasive words she'll lead astray
her house is a highway to the grave.
And to the wayward wife,
I followed you like an ox going to the slaughter,
like a deer stepping in a noose
untill an arrow pierced my lung
I'm a bird darting into a snare
and I'm taking to the bait
never knowing what it will cost.
Many are the victims she has brought down,
her slain are a mighty horde.
Her house is a highway to the grave,
leading down to chambers of death
