Track Name: Shards of Alemae
all thats left are shards of what was real

as haunting voices of intrinsic sense,
echo incessantly in this void
I live my life in past progressive tense
view through my eyes, obscured and destroyed
in this catatonic existence...

all that I recall
darkness has engulfed
locked inside the prison of a conscious mind
as my soul divides
shattered dreams lie
dead and buried till the end of time

all will be revealed

falling further down a spiral
ever-longing for the final exhale
digging up the pieces of a broken past
remnants of a fractured mental entity
I have never felt so reticent and null
words are nothing if they can't escape me

Within sleep, I am enlightened
Within sleep, I can live again

transverse to the other side
and assimilate in pure energy
when the blinding light is all I see
in this life, i will not be confined

I will find a clarity
redefine my perception
pushing any fear away
I'll no longer be afraid...
Track Name: Rue The Day
you crawl away, calling this a victory for you
and pass it off like no one else can see THE TRUTH

the path you chose to wander aimlessly leads to nowhere
and still you try to run away from anything you see as a threat

so you'll rue the day
pray that you don't wake up
knowing there's no other way
all you ever wanted was a reason to stay...

fake your disorder
blame the the world and
play the martyr
such resistance
you just surrender
their apathy has been your cross to bear
what did you want?
what could you gain?
ALL YOU GOT IS THIS DESPAIR!

so you'll rue the day
pray that you don't wake up
knowing there's no other way
all you ever wanted was to
show the world that there is no escape...
Track Name: Tephra
salt the open wound

give me reason
I will fucking cut you into little pieces
put you back together just so
I can cut you up again!

shine the light
I'm flawed, I know
but all my flaws are paled to yours...

desperate disposition!
callous intervention!

so you salt the open wound

put you back together just so
I can cut you up again...

desperate disposition
callous intervention
desolate inquisition

all my armor is GONE

should I cut my ties before I shut my eyes?
I better keep my poison close
from the morning light, I'll blame you for the fight
and then I'll let you cut my THROAT

fucking cut you into little pieces!
Track Name: Contention
lost inside
there's a lie concealing
less than you thought
scarred for life
blame the world for being
all that you're not
cynical of everyone you know
insufferable and so alone

(you've) chosen to be blind
so then all you can see is what your mind's perceiving
burned and cauterized
feeling will not return unless the scab is peeled away

maybe someday you will realize
that you're nothing but a fucking thorn in my side

and its gone too far

now in silence
sick with regret
you act like it's
too much to comprehend

such defiance
there's no time left
this pretense is
somehow coming to an end

pathetic failure
numb in apathy
when all is said and done
is all you will ever be

jaded. left behind
dwelling in pseudo-existence until the day you die
hoping you will find
meaning somewhere amidst distracting thoughts of suicide
bitter and withdrawn
knowing that there is really no point in this going on

decide. (inside)
the fallacy remains
believing in the same
LIES!
Track Name: Correlations
insane, I realize
this is all a lie!
I can't breathe
with this fear of failure
suffocating me
I just want to know
what is there to live for
when you're dead inside now anyway?
if it's true you don't care
why not just let go?

blind, we follow
broken by design
there will come a time
that we all say goodbye

we have forgotten we are alive
and we can't see past the physical
we just relapse. so difficult. SO TYPICAL!

I can't breathe
with this fear of failure
suffocating me
I'm losing control

as the pillars of trust now turn to dust
all the lies we create determine our fate

is it we have forgotten that
this is more than a dream
we are stuck here together and
we're sworn enemies

blind, we follow
broken by design
there will come a time
that we all say goodbye
GOODBYE!!!

why follow?
last chance to escape denial
why follow?
only to repeat the cycle...


what is there to live for?
why not just let go?
