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

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

Endless 04:19
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
4.
Merchants 04:18
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
5.
Witness 04:09
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
6.
Demons 04:24
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

The Deep End 02:37
8.
Soiled 03:33
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
9.
Old Bones 05:07
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
