01. In Tides I Wake

Music by Orwell
Breathe
Open your eyes
Washed away
Back from the tides

Speechless
The fears I refuse
To acknowledge (choking)
Begin to manifest
Holding out holding on
To a delusion (seeing colors)
Desolation tightens it's hold
Losing track of time
Days begin to blur together
No longer feeling alive
Decay degrade
Saturated
Drifting apart
Carried away

A prisoner of the open seas
Drifting restless, alone
Far far away
From me
Far from the living

Hopeless
Soaking and drifting
Praying to sink (choking)
Floating, fading
Letting go, moving on
To a delusion (seeing colors)
Desolation washes over
Losing track of time
Days begin to blur together
No longer feeling alive
Decay degrade
Saturated
Drifting apart
Carried away

Pulled out to sea
We wake to a rising tide

We tried to fight the waves
The current carried us away
Drowning in self-made misery


02. In Crude I Remain

Music by Orwell
Waking to a world in ruins
Everything I've known stripped away
Waking up to a world alone
Every single seed I've sown has been washed away

Unfamiliar with my surroundings
This place is now shrouded, encased, and soaked in black
Unfamiliar with my surroundings
The haze permeates, it's overwhelming
Surrounded and sunk,
Sopping and sluggish
Inhaling crude,
Regrettably I remain

Wretchedness
Take me
Bring me home to sleep
Sweet release

Unbalanced
Abandoned
Unsteady
I remain blank

Searching, wandering
Trying to find my way
Hopelessly
Drifting and carried away
Searching, wandering
Trying to find my way
Hopelessly drifting and carried away

Unbalanced
Abandoned
Unsteady
I remain
Save me
Free me
Save me
Hades
Save me
Take me


03. In Depths I Sink

Music by Orwell
Serpentine tongues deceive me with their siren songs
Leading me on to believe in voices of pretend
Lashing out at what is nothing more than a figment of my own imagination

Apparitions come to life

Dream on vivid dreamer
Lack of action won't make believers
Put faith in something real
Something tangible you can feel

Apparitions come to life
A nightmare is realized

I held my breath for far too long
Always turned a blind eye
One step outside myself
Let go
Got lost inside my mind

Forked tongues deceiving me
Got lost in apathy
Thrashing about at sea
Attacking my integrity

Dream on vivid dreamer
Lack of action won't make believers
Put faith in something real
Something tangible you can feel

So where are you now
Wandering in forever after
You left me to burn in Gehenna over days and weeks and years


04. From Depths I Rise

Music by Orwell
You're dreaming awake
You're not alone
From depths you will rise
I'll pull you home
You're dreaming awake

I can feel it washing over me
I can feel it
These tides set me free

The tides have changed
They carry me towards the shore
With the winds at my back I can move onward

It was your destiny to walk in the clouds
To go our separate ways and pursue our own dreams

A view of heaven from a seat in hell
I watched you faulter, I saw the moment that you fell


05. In Dust I Stand

Music by Orwell
Too scared to let go
Remain chained to this anchor
Letting it drag me down
I can't hold my breath forever

How am I supposed to move when I'm letting this guilt weigh me down
Dragging me beneath the surface
Continue with excuses
They only drag me down
It won't be long til I'm dead in the water

No longer will I be plagued by a guilty conscience
How was I supposed to move
I was buried in waves of uncertainty
No longer will I by plagued by a guilty conscience

Seeking deliverance from the fate my transgressions have earned
Trying only to make sense of a lesson to be learned

Not scared to let go
Unchained from this anchor
Pulling myself to ground
I can breathe, I can stand

No more dwelling on the past
It will haunt me no longer
I won't sink any lower
I won't let this drag me down

In dust I rise

Seeking deliverance from the fate my transgressions have earned
Trying only to make sense of a lesson to be learned
Seizing deliverance from belief that I have no control
Trying only to have purpose
A lesson has been learned

No more dwelling on the past
I won't let it haunt me any longer
I won't sink any lower
I won't let this drag me any lower


06. A New Awakening

Music by Orwell
For the first time in a while I have a reason to hope
I have a reason to smile
For the first time in several years there's nothing holding me back
Nothing to interfere

My eyes have been unveiled
A shroud has been lifted
I can see clearly now
That the haze has subsided
There's no going back to the ways of the past
And with that realization there comes some sort of relief
A burden has been lifted
I now breathe with ease

A new beginning
A breath of fresh air
New life has let my lungs
Rejuvenated
A new beginning
A new awakening
New life has left my heart rejuvenated

My eyes now see the subtle beauty inside of everything I previously overlooked
The splendor of life
The joy that it brings never really ceases to amaze me

Sand on my feet the earth beneath me
The most comforting feeling, it fills me with a warmth that I had lost
To have solid ground beneath me
To no longer be floating
To be standing in tribute to new life
A new flood of color and verve

A new beginning
A new awakening
New life has left my heart rejuvenated

Now that I've found myself I can move on in a new direction

I am replenished, I am renewed
I'm seeing life through a new point of view
No longer taking every moment for granted
With every breath I'm feeling blessed to be alive

Now that I've found myself I can move on in a new direction

For the first time in a while I have a reason to hope
I have a reason to smile
For the first time in several years there's nothing holding me back
Nothing to interfere
