01. Awaken, Arise

Instrumental


02. Everlasting

The fleeting hours fall away
Conscience calling, but still it fades
Like ships in the night that drift away
I know you're out there, but still you fade

Who has been left behind?
And who has changed?
I'm not the same any more
Who has been lifted up?
And who has fallen down?
Nothing's everlasting

Ghosts and shadows roam my mind
Fading features, lost in time
Warmth surrounds me colours dance
I long to see a fleeting glance, to set me free

Who has been left behind?
And who has changed?
I'm not the same any more
Who has been lifted up?
And who has fallen down?
Nothing's everlasting

Everlasting
Everlasting

Who has been left behind?
And who has changed?
I'm not the same any more
Who has been lifted up?
And who has fallen down?
Nothing's everlasting


03. To Drown

Those final words, I barely heard
A passing thought, as I closed the door
Raise me up, to my blackened skies
Alone I face this colossal storm

Don't leave,
Don't you ever leave, if I call
Don't leave
Don't you leave me here, all alone

On hands and knees, I crawled from you
Gasping for air, a dying breath
Lift me up from this blistered earth
Be my severance from a hollow world

Don't leave
Don't you ever leave, if I call
Don't leave
Don't you leave me here, all alone

To drown...

Arise, adrift and roaming
Embers glow dancing in flame
As my reason for living
Returns to haunt me again
If only for a moment
Set me free from the past
Hear the words I can not say
Don't let them be my last


04. A Soul Undone

A subtle gesture, a constant reminder
Of memories etched deep in me
Follow this path and it will lead you in circles
Answers you seek, remain unseen

Hope that spurred me on
Burdened by a soul undone

The shattered remains, splinters of deceit in my side
Face this moment in silence
Feel that I cannot breathe, as I break at the seams
What happened to my self-control?

The man that I've become
Wreckage of a soul undone

I've already seen enough to change my mind
To regret the longing and waste of borrowed time
As reasons come and seasons go I look for solitude
But come a time of change...

No light leads me on
Falter on a soul undone

But come a time of change...
But come a time of change...


05. Hollow Inside

Night bleeds into the day
Don't know when I'll close my eyes
Feel that I've lost my pace
As I'm swallowed by the light

But if you call my name
I'll no longer fall...

Faithless I face the days
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one
Broken I pick up pieces
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one

Faces that seem the same
All blend into the night
Trying to find my place
With only moments on my side

But if you call my name
I'll no longer fall...

Faithless I face the days
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one
Broken I pick up pieces
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one

Raise my eyes into the morning light
And I know I'll be there soon
Remembrance of another life
And I know I'll be with you

Faithless I face the days
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one
Broken I pick up pieces
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one

Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one
Hollow inside, but I'm not the only one


06. In My Skin

How many reasons do I have left inside?
You leave me to tend my wounds
Dreams are broken in times of silence
Words no longer find a truth

Can you see it again?
Can you even pretend?

How many times must I hold back my tears
Before you leave me with no pride?
Broken dreams that just wont mend
A lifetime before my eyes

Leave me here, I don't see you
I no longer hide
Dreams are just memories
My skin is thicker this time

My sense of self, now smothered by your lies
The years have worn me down
What reason can I try to find
To tell myself "its alright"?

Can you see it again?
Can you even defend?

Leave me here I don't see you
I no longer hide
Dreams are just memories
My skin is thicker this time


07. A Dreams End

I find myself asking you why this drags us down?
Why live with the regrets of yesterday?
I've seen these things one thousand times before
But I'm still cold, waiting for the truth to set me free

Save me from confusion, I've been biding my time
I see clearer now, I've opened my eyes
Dreams will come and dreams will go away again
I don't need them, I've opened my eyes

You keep telling me I've crossed the line the last time
Nothing changes, running round in circles once again
I've heard your words one thousand times before
But I'm still searching, looking for a truth inside of me

Save me from delusion, lift me up above this
I see clearer now, I've opened my eyes
Dreams will come and dreams will quickly disappear
I don't need them, I've opened my eyes

Save me from illusion, show me more to this life
I see clearer now, I've opened my eyes
Dreams will come and dreams will leave you broken
I don't need them I've opened my eyes


08. Beneath The Soil

In the endless dark it shines
It echoes through these lonely walls
Close your eyes, the light is blinding
Here beneath the soil
Searching for a silver lining
Through the loneliness and scorn
Scratching at my splintered cell
Never to be reborn

On the rocks the tide is rising
Swallowing the world
The black sea so enticing
So infinite and cold
From above the voices ring
They echo through the dawn
I hear the broken words they sing
A final verse to mourn

Beneath the soil
No one hears my words
My cries of sorrow
So I just wait here for tomorrow
Beneath the soil
No one breathes
A living word of life's deceit
So I'll just wait here for tomorrow

Beneath the soil
No one hears my words
My cries of sorrow
So I just wait here for tomorrow
Beneath the soil
No one breathes
A living word of life's deceit
So I'll just wait here for tomorrow


09. Sleep Of Reason

Instrumental


10. The Dying Light

Endless lies
Dreams that flicker like the dying light
I don't understand myself any more
Chosen words
Careful not to hit you where it hurts
Can't forgive myself this time
As I come crashing to the floor

Hopeful eyes
Looking for a way to get inside
I've turned away for far too long
Open arms
Love you gave me helped to keep me strong
Don't know what you've got till it's gone
Regret I never told you

You are my light
Are you here?
You are my light
Are you near?

All these things I kept inside
I pushed you away, afraid of life
I never meant to let you go
Leave you broken and all alone
Hear me when I say these words
You'll always be my only thoughts
I need you here with me tonight
To cover me with your dying light


11. Weight Of Empathy

With sunken eyes I raise my weary head
Before the sullen rising of my apathy
I taste of the life that giveth to me
Smothered in the growing weight of empathy
Falling to my bloodied knees
I scream to a god that some may claim they've seen
Beneath me burns this harrowed land
Cracks in this barren earth threaten to swallow me

Waiting for this feeling to subside
Opening my eyes, I face this empty life
See this world in its slow decay
Dying of a plague, mankind's insanity
Reigning from the skies above
Covering this land in blackened death and grief
Where is the voice of reason?
Lost in translation or just trying to ignore?

And I won't ever let you see
The hatred and the pain I've seen
And I won't ever let you be
As alone or misled, like I've been
And I won't covert all your pain
To bleed you dry of life again
And I won't ever make you plead
For your sanity on your hands and knees

Don't leave me here to face the turning tide
Don't leave me here to see the dawning light
Don't leave me in a world that has gone numb
Don't leave me here to find my way
