Track Name: Convalescence
Stuck in a rut of complacency
And yet the boredom has caught up with me
You will always find me standing still
Eternally numb
Standing still in this place
In the arms of denial

The prodigal child
The indebted youth
Is this all that I am destined to be

I am never fine
I am always well
I am never well

I don’t deserve this
There is no merit
In this suffering
in this fucking existence

Now hear me out

I have felt the cold
Stuck in this state of convalescence
I have sensed a change
I can not go forward
Stuck in this state of convalescence

I don’t deserve this
I don’t merit any of this

I have felt the cold
I have heard the silence
There is nothing left

Oh hail, oh ave maria
I have become blind
Oh hail, oh ave maria
Can you see me now
Track Name: While You Stood Still
You are the ones who silence
You are the ones who have nothing to lose
Maintaining the status quo

The ones who don’t understand

This isn’t your fight
This isn't your pain
This isn’t your fight

You are the ones in power
The ones who never shut the fuck up
Content in were we were
The ones who don’t understand

This isn’t your fight
This isn’t your pain
Now take a step back

This isn’t your fight
This isn’t your pain
This isn’t your fear, this isn’t about you

Stop searching for an alternate story
When the root lives within yourself

It’s time for you
To take a step back
Look at what has been done while you’ve stayed still

Stood still
Track Name: Endless
The garden of eden
Is dead, pummeled to the ground
I will call you by your name
I know your name

Misery

Misery, oh how i know you to well
You are the original sin.

Fabrication of hardship and heartache
The fear of living side by side
Fabrication of hardship and heartache
The anguish of a leaving sigh

I am sorry
To be the bearer of bad news

From the flower plucked
To the barrel of oil
Was born the original sin

Scatter the sickness
Spread the guilt
Weap the loss
Mourn the annihilation

Lay down your weary head
Lay down your heavy heart

Endless
Track Name: Merchants
Renounce your lightness of being
Follow me to the core of all things
Renounce your lightness of being
Ascend with me

Leave behind your lightness of being

Instrumented nihilism
Duplicity

Leave behind your wellness of being
Follow me to the crux of all things
Leave behind your wellness of being
Descend with me

Instrumented nihilism
Orchestrated abnegation
Instrumented nihilism
Duplicity

At the center of the malevolent
Is the essence of this mockery
Disassembled, dismantled in dishonesty

Instrumented nihilism
Orchestrated abnegation
Hear the score that you have written
And sense the pain that they have hidden

Merchants of the austerian epoch
Ridden of reasoning
At lost for words
We fuel the machine
Track Name: Witness
How blind must we be
to have missed this oppressive heresy
how empty of a soul
hell bent, guilt ridden on policy

Ash risen when the dusk has woken
all I see is death the truth is spoken
ash risen when the dusk has woken
all I see is death the truth has spoken

The truth is spoken

You talk of a witness
i’ll be that witness
you talk of a witness
the witness that you deserve

Face down in the gutter
all is now clear to see
clear to see
face down in the gutter
all is now clear to see
tell me what is left

Nothing

Is what’s left of your lightness of being

Neglected
protected
this is the final hierarchy
Track Name: Demons
Right here right now this is all that matters
stop trying to see the bigger picture

Silencing those in the process of healing
shutting down the ones striving to live love
this is what healing looks like

And I see you’re scared
scared of the end of a century
end this century of self
end this era
of shame

Let go of the fear
release these old demons
look at the pain beside you
it is the same as the one inside you

You live feeling in chaines
while some still feel the steel
around their necks
victims of our own implicity

The altar is set
now let’s burn it all down
united in a common struggle

In pain
we are the same
Track Name: Soiled
The pain, the sorrow, the violence within
Will never quench the thirst

Bewildered, in dismay
The silence ounce golden now lays across the floor
The silence ounce golden now lays soiled in disgrace

You call this seeking the light
You call this searching for god
I call this the bleakness
Searching within the emptiness

Submerged, the earth has shattered
All around, all around
Nothing is left to be felt to be seen,

Overwhelmed how could this happen to me
Up and down, round and round
Nothing is as it used to seem

Erase this vision from my eyes
There is a silence beneath the screams
An inner peace you say
I have found myself
Soiled in Disgrace
Track Name: Old Bones
You see yourself
As the last of a dying breed
You won’t be missed
Along with your dying creed

The maladie seeps in at an early stage
Innocence lost won’t be the one to blame

We percisit on living throughout what they narrate
Innocence lost won’t be the one to blame

What have these old bones
Ever done for you
Have they ever told you any of the truth
What have these old bones
Ever done for you
Do you feel secure
Secluded away
In fear

I will wait for all of this to fade away
Will this state of dread
Ever die away

Cave in to the thought of you giving in
