Track Name: Mouths Of Decadence
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Observer
Descending weightless I’m no stranger to the burden of night
A distant view, a far, beyond the loneliness of every time
We sleep paralysed into the twilight hours only for another broken dream of life around the sun

I step through the ages of death rise
Beyond the gates of fire, into the realms of ghosts
From the day I was born I've been waiting to die
Hung from the neck by the years spent wasted

In the wake of the night
I was hypnotised
But in the land of sleep
Delirium encompassed me
My head was inside out
Everything was upside down

I feel the change in my shadow
Stretch as the sun, collapse and dies
Between gravity's grace
I’m on my knees with arms spread wide
If there is only one way to know
For what awaits, beyond this life
Then I’ll trade it all
For just a little peace of mind
Track Name: Death After Life
One less nightmare, wondrous dream
I swear that this world will be the death of me
A cold stare, resides behind these eyes
That I’m sure, you swore, would never come back
Mother save me, Father save me
I fear that this earth could be the death of us all
Even though i’m sinking in deep sleep
I’m still calling your name
Every time i fall…

Between these endless wrong ways and long hard days
I’ve been losing my mind, crushing down on my head
Below the silence and death obsessed, I gain ground in distance, amongst ourselves

Why is it I dive, and fall in-sync, into the waking hours, when half asleep
Unless I’m crazy, I’m near sure my memory’s fading

At the edge of the night, beyond these filthy streets
They say our failures reflect your life in dreams
But some fall and die of depression, cause these nights are unforgiving

One less nightmare, wondrous dream
I swear that this world will be the death of me
A cold stare, resides behind these eyes
That i’m sure, you swore, would never come back
Mother save me, Father save me
I fear that this earth could be the death of us all
Even though i’m sinking in deep sleep
I’m still calling your name
Every time i fall…

One less nightmare, wondrous dream
I swear that this world will be the death of me
A cold stare, resides behind these eyes
That i’m sure, you swore, would never come back
Mother save me, Father save me
I fear that this earth could be the death of us all
Even though i’m sinking in deep sleep
I’m still calling your name
Every time i fall…
Track Name: Embrace
I often sleepwalk through the haze of daze
Drifting streets of neighbourhoods at night where nothing seems to ever fucking change
Still creeping each night step
Silence welcomes me home through the shrouds of rain
I'd disappear from here if only to escape
I sleep losing breath beneath the pounding days

It used to drown me
Without a surface to catch my breath
It used to drown me
It used to drown me inside of my head

Embrace the darkness
I pass unnoticed, towards my home
But no one knows me and I’m a stranger alone in this room

The blind and silent
They walked right through me, invisible still
Cause whats worse, than dying alone, when feeling crowded and trapped inside my own hell

The best of me was constantly drained
I lost my grip on endless days

It used to drown me, It used to drown me

Perceived as province, entombed with guilt
Still it floods, the corners of my mind

It used to drown me, it used to drown me
It used to drown me inside of my head
Track Name: Remorser
Two coins for the ferryman
The night sky is ahead of me
Shallow graves by the riverbed
I'm low down from the certainty
Of whats to come

The last call to the underworld
Dragged numb from the life of me
Doors closed from the streets above
A deep breath for the tidal waves
So hold me close

Under liars and thieves, drained blood deranged amidst the cold
I’m a bastard of man, pinned down by crooks to take my soul
Immersed in the night, as worms crawl the dirt beneath my skin
Rotten in spoils, withdrawn and silent, and plagued by sin

As black as disease, worn down and shadowed below my eyes
A serpent of tongues, wraps around my mind

Sleep a while longer
Now, don’t be afraid
Of lips in lurid opal blue

Open the sky, to infinite space
As oceans wave
It’s time to say goodbye
Track Name: Neighbourhood
It's late here, I've been washed away, in pain, my stomach burns
My head aches, split the world in two it tends to pull me down
I find the rest of my life is harder to see when I'm closing my eyes
The ground was breaking, the walls were crumbling
Beneath the cracks in my mind I saw a part of me had changed
The clouds were shifting with heavens waiting
In tears I took to thinking I could hide it in the rain
The night skies paint me strange
We talk brief cause it's been so long
The world awakes in tidal waves
Under stars
Waging wars towards the Luna moon
The march of saints dressed in black, I closed my eyes to the dark as I slept too
Long
Cause lately, I've been wandering the streets at night alone
It's likely, I'll be found beneath my name that's etched in stone
Stay now, we could lose ourselves and stray from broken arms
You know me, I can't fake a smile for anything at all
The night skies paint me strange
We talk brief cause it's been so long
The world awakes in tidal waves
Under stars
Waging wars towards the Luna moon
The march of saints dressed in black, I closed my eyes to the dark as I slept too
Long
Cause lately
I've been wandering the streets at night alone
It's likely, I'll be found beneath my name that's etched in stone
I was just like you
Track Name: Escapist
On the stairs of death i write your name
Oh liberty, come step my way

From fools in greed, the lost and found
I sink my teeth, below the ground

In wasted days, and same old fights
Those heavy lows, and lonesome nights

I’m finding peace, in hollow bones
And murders love upholds alone

Nostalgia drooled saliva rain
And soma drugs for people strange

I cut my teeth where nomads roam
As my reflection bears resemblance to someone I used to know

White lights release, entombing me
When alls lost in bloom, in bloom
There’s no escaping death
When life hangs by a thread

Beneath the shadows filtered softly through the dim lit room
It pulled me under, paralysed, so help me, I was froze
Uncontrolling wrath, a cramped mind unfolding
Hidden under the cracks in fear I’ll never understand
I wish to leave, I long to breathe
Cause this was everything that got me to an early fucking grave
I’m scared to sleep and losing my life, so here’s to death night after night
(night after night)
Take me away from here
Take me away from here
Take me, Take me, Away
Track Name: Aurora
Under the weight of a sleepless night, when all is silent
And all is dark, with no god to serve as suspect or scapegoat
I murmur murderous curses for a world that revels in its capacity to be brutal

The cruelest among us eat best, the sharpest teeth pull the most meat from the bone

The ghosts of moonlit lanes know my name. I’ve stalked
Them all before
Idle in stolen moments, hiding from the worlds hungry
Claws

In a blue moons full moon, in the splendor and rush
Beset by regret, let love gather dust

The savagery of revelry has left me pulled apart
Calling upon the siren songs to haunt a hardened heart

All the pretty sutures, bleeding fleeting futures
Through the curse and the mercy of wanderlust stupors

It all comes crashing down, like the heavens, like the waves
The muses have only proven that all beauty fades

Upon a bed of roses, upon a bed of nails
I’ve lost all of my loved ones to graves and betrayals

It seems to be, on nights like these, we’ve made a hell of earth, the very damnation we deserve

This is when we sit beside the graves we've dug
Track Name: Radiance
Step from the shadows of solar darkness
Like a ghost into the night, Besides a fear of death in life
Where no one understands their existence, beyond the surface of the sun
And the contradicting difference of everything thats black on black

In between the stars in view
I begin to feel the change in you
As I ask the crumbling question
Am i a man of fading conscience

After my final breath has gone
And if the vale of tears dissolve
I try grasp a deeper view as my mind concave's and I can’t look back

Stuck in the mist of nothing
Beyond the face of change
It used to strangle me
It used to drag me beneath my feet

Suspended over radiance
Into the depths of space
Do you remember me in vein
Do you remember losing sleep… again and again

Time crept beneath my weakened skin
I still wither away in silence

The burden dragged me to my knees
Though under an age
Repentance, bewildered
Sunken to embrace

Under the closure of every night
I whisper away and try to forget, everything I left behind

Oh how the gods resemble me
As cut throat wire
Surround my lungs
I was struggling to breathe
Track Name: Transient
Lost in a futile world, hung dry, malnourished and under weight
Mind numbing puerile for attainment, like a padded cell with no escape
I slipped unconscious, Incoherent interstate, familiar faded days burning exile, and transient
Dead lying prone, ghost less eyes, to their own
Cruise ride under night fall, crying, "oh what could I learn, from letting you go"

You’re not alone

Head slung into cloud breaks, in ambience, before the waste of god
Dead weight left to free fall, I’ve come undone, in this sadistic world, enshrined to the dark
Mood swings under rain, like there’s a heaven to fall
Blacked out by the railroad, "drowning my problems", with just the shirt on your back, to shield from the cold

Locked in the mind of monotony, a creature of instinct, is dying hollow




Oh, I know you’re not alone, you know you’re alone

Sometimes I think about leaving...
Solitude is intrinsic, I keep crawling to hate state
The clock knocks at my bedside, translucent skin, with only the power the speak before it’s too late
Stone cold and your minds free, but love drugged on the phone
Bright lights from the airwaves, delusional, never mind what you think, you know you're not alone
Track Name: Heaven Ascended
Father time, Is more of a man than me
In sifting sands, slumberland fades empty
Lonely nights forgotten when tumbling down
If only I knew what will become of me now

Dear wandering eyes
Lower your gaze from mine
Cause death becomes all that you see
Filling your gut as you feed
Off the weak

Dear absent mind
I guess the distraction of time
Will ascertain all that you let die
So sink back and dream as you sleep
Desperately

Dear Modern Earth
Sever your astral body
Cause i am the cancer you breath
Until you are sick to the teeth
Violently

Dear dreary nights
I’m ill willed in melancholy
For nothing amounts of me
Ascending to say your goodnight
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
