Observer 02:00
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

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…

Embrace 02:13
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

Remorser 02:59
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

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

Escapist 03:50
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

Aurora 01:59
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

Radiance 03:33
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

Transient 02:48
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
11.
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
