Track Name: Awakened
I walk slowly through the gates and into the unknown
Seeking your guidance, but unwilling to listen
All hail the undecided, all hail the other side
Regaining consciousness and sent forth into madness
All hail the unforgiving, all hail the other side
Infinitely bound to the judge inside us all
Soul asleep, dreaming deep
Breathe into me
Life newly found
Awakened at the sound of your voice calling me home
Wishing I could see the mountains at my feet
They hinder me
Slowly, indefinitely
All hail the unforgiving
All hail the decider of life
All of this time I wasted
Seeking your guidance but unwilling to listen
All of these years forsaken
Forced to live within an empty fear
Closing your eyes to see, batting a blind eye at the starting line
Your world upside down
The palace you built is crumbling
Your world upside down
Look at me
The product of your selfishness surfaces and comes to light
So take a look into my eyes, and tell me I'm not worth the fight
Breathe into me
Life newly found, awakened at the sound of your voice calling me home
(Coming home)
Forced to live within an empty fear
I am awake
Track Name: Jane Doe
Now I see everything, how lost we happen to be
Here, now, I'm not fucking proud
But my choice was resigned
Decisions that I've made outweigh the changes to repay
I don't know how it's come this far
But I'm here left with this hollowed shell, an empty room
It’s nothing to come home to
But when it’s said and done, oh it’s gone
Babe, babe
So what the fuck did you think this was?
Hey, hey
I bet you thought I’d give up
I bet you thought I wouldn’t give a fuck
In the end, it’s just another way to push my luck
Why stop here? Why stop now?
They put the salt in your eyes
It's my time to shine
You'll see my way, I'll break your face
Hate everything, everything means nothing in the end
Everything fucking means nothing in the end
How long will it have to take for the days of jaded memories
To subside in me?
Hollowed shell, an empty room
It’s nothing to come home to
But when it’s said and done, oh its gone
(I see everything)
Now I see everything, how lost we happen to be
Here, now I'm not fucking proud
But my choice was resigned
Decisions that I've made
Outweigh the changes to repay
I don't know how it's come this far
But I'm here left with this, hollowed shell, an empty room.
It’s nothing to come home to
But when it’s said and done
It’s my turn to shine
Track Name: Disconnect
Torn almost precisely
Two halves that once resembled a whole,
Leaving me stranded here in the cold
So fleeting the feeling of certainty
Bracing for the worst, it’s in my dreams
Left to wonder what is real, and what deceives
Disconnected from the outside, you don’t see
What I see, what I do, I’m not real, is it true?
With everything I’ve overcome, it’s all for you
I am who resides inside your head
Disconnected from everyone you see
I am who resides inside your head
Disconnected from every apology
The time has come to set myself free
To spread the distance between you and me
So tell me what it is you see
In the cracks of our foundation
The brick and mortar dissolves into ashes
It falls apart, slowly and elegantly
Though this wasn’t the first time
Love lives no longer for me inside
It falls apart, slowly and elegantly
And within each day I find the means to survive
I’ll take the long way home
It falls apart, slowly and elegantly
The time has come to set myself free
To spread the distance between you and me
Between you and me
Track Name: Willow (ft. Justin Bordianu)
I’m lost inside a haze of my own thoughts again
So pull me out, pull me out
I can feel the life escape me
Lost between two worlds inside my head again
You know my name, but you'll never see my face
Take me back to the willows
Haunting and familiar, embracing me at a distance
And only time will tell, you'll see: this is your private hell
The walls are coming down, I can feel it all around me
What is this place?
The floods are coming back
Pulled towards the light,but you'll never feel it's warmth
You know my mark, so bow in my presence
(Romanian)
Take me back to the willows
Haunting and familiar
Embracing me at a distance
And only time will tell if i'll ever make it out
You know my name but youll never see my face
The walls are coming down
Bow down to me
Embracing me at a distance, and only time will tell in the end
Bow down to me
lost inside a haze of my own thoughts again
Lost between two worlds inside my head
I can feel the life escape me
And only time will tell, you’ll see: this is your private hell
Lost inside a haze of my own thoughts again
Lost between two worlds inside my head
I can feel the life escape me
Pull me out
Pull me the fuck out
(Romanian)
Take me back to the willows
Haunting and familiar
Embracing me at a distance
And only time will tell if I'll ever make it out
You know my name but you'll never see my face
Track Name: Dethroned
Here we stand
Eye to eye, toe to toe
Flash focus shining bright in your own undertow
We saw your end game right from the start
Searching for someone else's mind inside your heart
We will never sleep, we stop at nothing
The thorn in your side becomes the sword
Receiving endlessly, yet earning nothing
The thorn in your side becomes the sword
This is my final sin
To take what's left and throw it all away
Like a frame without a picture
Looking right through you
It's not that hard to see
You wear it on your sleeve
Do you remember your head you held so high?
To end the rule of thief, dethroned
Now say goodbye
Do you remember your head you held so high?
(Dethroned)
Do you remember your eyelids closing tight?
(Closing tight)
Dethroned
This is my final sin
To take what's left and throw it all away
(Dethroned)
Flash frames are not in focus,
But these negatives are the same shade of shame
This is my final sin
To take what's left and throw it all away
Dethroned
Flash frames are not in focus,
But these negatives are the same shade of shame
This is my final sin
Track Name: Forking Paths
Look straight ahead and you'll see it staring back
Always watching, never acting
Silent and unyielding
Where the fallen forever lay
Where our weaknesses decide our fate
These roads are laid out before us
Guide us not as our captain
Free to do as we please
Take these burdens and allow us to travel with ease
The seas part and fire reigns
This forking path in our pre-destiny
(Pre-destiny)
The tightrope narrows
One false step ends in disaster
I can see my end approaching
Faster and faster
Walk with me through agony
Misery loves company
This forking path in our pre-destiny
These roads are laid out before us
Guide us not as our captain
Free to do as we please
Take these burdens and allow us to travel with ease
Free to do as we please
The seas part and fire reigns
This forking path in our pre-destiny
One life, one shot, one chance to take it all away
I see my footprints in the earth
