Track Name: As Everything Slips Away
This is the last chance you have to take the easy way out from disaster
This door's been open for far too long it must be slammed shut and forgotten

So don’t act so surprised
We’ve had it coming a while
Nothing can stop our predetermined fate

Stay and you’ll see everything as it slips away
I tried to reach for anything which would catch our fall

10 thousand bodies lie at my feet I’ve been unleashing and I’ve destroyed
All of our time, and our tragedies I have depicted this outcome for our lives

Don’t act so surprised
We’ve had it coming a while
Nothing can stop our predetermined fate

Stay and you’ll see everything as it slips away
I tried to reach for anything which would catch our fall

Lies have broken all that we’ve built
Take your liar's grin deceiver’s glance
I’ve had far too many broken dreams
I will become more now that you’re gone
I will become more now that you’re gone

Can’t you see the fire in my eyes
It’s been burning out now for years
Nothing can rekindle this flame so hold your tears

Stay and you’ll see everything as it slips away
I tried to reach for anything which would catch our fall

As everything slips away
Track Name: Inevitable Consequences
The end is drawing nearer we are faced with our impending fate
We have dealt this hand to ourselves and now we must suffer in spite

The waters will soon rise and they will consume the weak

Darkness has fallen upon us swallowing all our hope
Beneath its shelter lies our guilt which reflects our incompetence

In time our purity will be depleted and we will have no excuses
We have always foreseen this fate but yet we waited and now it’s far too late

The waters will soon rise and they will consume the weak

Darkness has fallen upon us swallowing all our hope
Beneath its shelter lies our guilt which reflects our incompetence

The floods will consume us leaving us weeping leaving us devastated
The fires will then complete our fate charring our destinies turning our souls to dust

The waters will soon rise and they will consume the weak

Darkness has fallen upon us swallowing all our hope
Beneath its shelter lies our guilt which reflects our incompetence

Darkness has fallen and all we can do is grieve
We are all drowning in a sea of guilt

This is inevitable
Track Name: Forever the Scapegoat
When tragedy strikes the victims all turn towards you and you lie you all lie

Whenever innocent blood falls our name slips from your lips
Delivering a subtle blow from such quivering hands
Through time your accusations have no substance
They provide a motive while we stand dumbfounded
You preach to the wounded

We will no longer tolerate your shaded depiction

Will we forever be your scapegoats the ones who take the blame
Whenever answers are nowhere to be found your finger falls on us

This redundant you walk must be getting old by now
An easy answer for the simple minded but what about the rest of us

We will no longer tolerate your shaded depiction

Will we forever be your scapegoats the ones who take the blame
Whenever answers are nowhere to be found your finger falls on us

You called us heretics your telltale methods are pathetic
Please tell us how much longer can this go on
How much longer can you sing the same song
How much longer can you sing the same song

Whenever innocent blood falls our name slips from your lips
We will no longer tolerate your shaded depiction

Will we forever be your scapegoats the ones who take the blame
Whenever answers are nowhere to be found your finger falls on us
Will we forever be your scapegoats the ones who take the blame
Whenever answers are
Whenever answers are nowhere to be found
Nowhere to be found
Track Name: Eulogy
This is for anyone who thinks that I’ve become something I am not
For you have no idea who I ever was

To think that I used to get upset when I would burn another bridge
I have destroyed all of my worthless relationships

Wait I’m facing this opposition
I’ll rise up and make this declaration to you

You’re going to miss me when I’m gone soon you will see how I was desperate
I wanted to show you something more than this redundant hopeless redundancy

So take one good look into these dead eyes for the next time they will pass you
It will be as if they hadn’t even noticed you
I’ll close my eyes before I start to feel sorry
Then I’ll close your eyes and make you feel sorry

You’re going to miss me when I’m gone soon you will see how I was desperate
I wanted to show you something more than this redundant hopeless redundancy

You will crawl back to me on your broken hands and knees
You will fall before me and beg for mercy
You cannot judge me for what I have become
For you never knew who I was
You cannot judge me for what I have become
For you never knew who I was
You cannot judge me for what I have become

You’re going to miss me when I’m gone soon you will see how I was desperate
I wanted to show you something more than this redundant hopeless redundancy

When I’m gone you’ll see I was desperate
I wanted to break away from this hopeless damnation
When will I disappear so I can break away
Break away
Break away from this
Track Name: When Days Turn to Years
I am still searching for you not a day when you don’t come to mind

So innocent standing in darkness holding hands waiting for dawn
The reflection of your eyes in mine left me breathless I never even saw the signs

Ever since I was young I’ve dreamt of finding you
I’ve never accepted how I let you be

Taken silently before my eyes
Days may have passed but I am still searching for you

Over the years I have denied myself a sense of comfort which you gave to me
I have waited for you to return but yet I still stand here waiting

Ever since I was young I’ve dreamt of finding you
I’ve never accepted how I let you be

Taken silently before my eyes
Days may have passed but I am still searching for you
Taken silently before my eyes
Days may have passed but I am still searching for you

How long should I wait for you
How long should I strive to find you
When days turn to years my conscience serves its sentence
Due to my lack of courage I am left standing all alone

Taken silently before my eyes
Days may have passed but I am still searching for you

I have been left standing all alone
Track Name: The Last Chapter
I was trapped barred within my consciousness
Regret I ever accepted such a warm embrace
Denial has taken me hostage devoured my senses and my identity
I locked myself within these walls silently waiting to get out

These locks on my chains their keys lay before me
Why was it such a task to put these days behind me

When will this ache end when will this urge subside
The time has come to write the last chapter
Of our lives

The need to cloud my life and shade all of the darkness in it has now faded away
I despised what I became obsessed with the demon’s presence

These locks on my chains their keys lay before me
Why was it such a task to put these days behind me

When will this ache end when will this urge subside
The time has come to write the last chapter
Of our lives

Faith has reappeared shining hope to blind my fears
Reap the benefits of my now vacated slate
Through time I’ll persevere
In time I’ll overcome

When will this ache end when will this urge subside
The time has come to write the last chapter
Of our lives

Let’s turn the page and close the book
Track Name: Subjective Eyes
You’re shaking once again hunched in a familiar position
Your mind races but yet you feel nothing

Soon you will no longer be able to withstand
This torture which you are being subjected to

Say you will overcome all of the stereotypes
Which you are being sold we have all been scolded

Your eyes tell me another story they cry out to me with such intensity
So weak your grief takes over me as I watch you slowly fade
While I resented you for what you became

Soon you will no longer be able to withstand
This torture which you are being subjected to

Say you will overcome all of the stereotypes
Which you are being sold we have all been scolded

If only you could see yourself through my objective eyes
Maybe you would then realize the cost of their lies

Soon you will no longer be able to withstand
This torture which you are being subjected to

Say you will overcome all of the stereotypes
Which you are being sold we have all been scolded
Say you will say you’ll try say that you’ll listen and decide
That you will that you’ll survive

Just close your subjective eyes
Track Name: The Fallacy of Freedom
Tell me why

Why have I brought to this sanctuary when I was desolate I fueled your hatred
I’ve broken through the remains and found hope through a new light
I followed it its faded shadowed guided me

I believed in your fallacy of freedom
I stood there as you cast your first stone

Within inches of my grasp you stand there and taunt me
Holding everything that I want you laugh as you taunt me

I’m laughing now as your lips defecate lies and deceit secrete from every orifice
I’ve seen through stained glass and witnessed things a man should not
I’ve seen devastation and I’m the evidence

I believed in your fallacy of freedom
I stood there as you cast your first stone

Within inches of my grasp you stand there and taunt me
Holding everything that I want you laugh as you taunt me

Then in the dark of night I woke up in a sweat
You were standing over me with a blade in hand
I closed my eyes and waited for the blood

Within inches of my grasp you stand there and taunt me
Holding everything that I want you laugh as you taunt me
Slowly you laugh as you taunt me

Your eyes show no signs of remorse
If only I had found somewhere I belonged
Track Name: Shadowed Existence
Its dark and their voices rise again my heart breaks with the silence
Been praying for sunlight to come and illuminate
This shadowed existence which we portray
Desperate I cried out for redemption

Throughout my life I strived for sanctity from these perils

Although I’m blind I still find all of the emptiness you left in me
This broken home has reaped what its sown
And has left me dying

Their screams led to the consequences
Which have circulated for too long and have polluted our home
Later I sink to the floor lying there withered and plagued
With the guilt of passing on this disease which I condone

Throughout my life I strived for sanctity from these perils

Although I’m blind I still find all of the emptiness you left in me
This broken home has reaped what its sown
And has left me dying

Another morning of distress my lips are aching
I see you arrive with them and they’re kicking and screaming
You simply turn towards them while tightening your fist
They fall silent beneath your authoritarian hand

Although I’m blind I still find all of the emptiness you left in me
This broken home has reaped what its sown
And has left me dying

You’ve all left me dying
Track Name: Redefine Tomorrow
A flash of light collapse of reason
Priorities have led you astray disaster has darkened this season
A sudden tragedy leads you into hostile ground
Your will to live will be questioned

Will you live to regret this will you just let it disappear

Pray for tomorrow pray that your sun will rise
Pray for a second a chance to redefine your life

Trickled thick and left to pool
Taillights reflect in her crimson gaze
You are a hypocrite and you’re a selfish liar
You only serve yourself through the pain of others

Will you live to regret this will you just let it disappear

Pray for tomorrow pray that your sun will rise
Pray for a second a chance to redefine your life
This catastrophe has unveiled your shortcomings
You can beg and plead but that still wont change a thing

The time for change has come

Choose what you’d rather lose your family or your dignity
Choose what you’d like to keep your sense of pride or your will to die

Pray for tomorrow pray that your sun will rise
Pray for a second a chance to redefine your life
Her mortality has redeemed your empathy
But the question is is she still is she still breathing

Or is it already too late
Is she still breathing or is it already too late
Is she still breathing or is it already too late
Is she still breathing
