Track Name: Endless Circle
There is a fear, darkness
There is a dread silence
There is a silence, mute

There is a sprawling void
There is a somber pain
There is a dissonant loss

They spoke of a great divine
That I am in full doubt of
An order in conflict

It has not absolved my fear
Those words have not healed
Where mercy paralyzed you

Felt the weight of mourning
I let grief devour me
The emptiness surrounds
I let it crush me

There is a fear, darkness
There is a dread silence
There is a silence, mute

There is a fallacy, cower
There is no resolve
No hand to guide

Felt the weight of mourning
I let grief devour me
The emptiness surrounds
I let it crush me

I deny your solace
I deny you
I deny you.
Track Name: Fade Out
Vision obstructed
Insurrection directed
Opposition diluted
The tension is rising

As the smoke clears
Try blurring the lines
An air of confusion

This notion is failing
The tension still rising

And through the haze
I see your face
Strike fear in your eyes

Your apparent disdain
Of all us below
You're hard pressed to hide
You hunger for more
Common, banal, opposition
Your crushing defeat

Resolution in violence
Your grip is fading
Disorder, confusion
The tension now mounting

You stumble along
Rush from the haze
And I see your face

Did you show any mercy?
When ran them down
When you strung them up
Watched them fade out

We'll show you no mercy.
I'll hunt you down.
String you up
Watch you fade out.
Track Name: Undertow
To be adrift in an erratic sea
To lose myself in the hum of the void

The void hangs above
As the rain beats down
Bad news.

The void beats louder
As the current pulls me under

It all comes in droves
Tidal wave to pull
Exercise all your strength
Against the weight of the current
With the tumultuous swaying
And the pressure's building
Building

The void beats louder
As the current pulls you under

It comes in droves,
To drag you down.
Track Name: Go Forth in Ruin
Advancement to struggle
Unwavering desire to grasp
A world based in concrete
Succumb to the reality

Hesitation wounds you
Withdrawn from certainty
Struggle to

Conform to their ideals
Embrace the vacancy of mind
Continue in a path
Towards constant strife

Hesitation wounds you
Withdrawn from certainty
Struggle to

I found you in this well
Holed up
I extended my hand
Pleaded for help
Watched you
Go forth in ruin
Embrace ruin.
Track Name: Fixed Position
The clouds rose from the depths
Grey smog crept on the distance
From what I could gather

And did you see that trench retreat?
The smog reached further
And did you see the colors lose all intensity?
The clouds loomed on the horizon

Ceased to exist

Forlorn stare across the distance
The water rising, erasing

I tried to follow that line
But I got lost
I steered us, aimless in direction
But I had no point to reference

The lights blinkered
Sky explodes, grey to cover
The lights dimmed
Dimmed.
Track Name: Slow Burn
CHUG-CHUG
Track Name: Focal Point
I stood at the edge
I was feeling dread

Snowfall, veiling
Shrouding my

I stood at the edge
And struggled to take it in
This feeling of dread
Has all but seeped in

Snowfall, veiling
Shrouding my eyes
Engulfed in my thought
Immersed in Silence

There is grey in my sight
Strangling in it's hold
A deafening silence

There's no focus now.
Track Name: Marshfield
Did you look towards the sky
With the atmosphere dense

You hit the pavement
Head filled with silence
Look in the distance
As the clearing glares
A notated expansion
As the sky
Crumbled

Did you see it coming?
I watched it all fall
This crippling fear

You hit the pavement
Head filled with silence
Look in the distance
As the clearing glares
A notated expansion
As the sky
Crumbled

This crippling fear
Anchored by loss

Look towards an idol
There's nothing there
No hope to guide you
There's only loss

I watched the sky crumble

Look towards an idol
There's nothing there
No hope to guide you
There's only loss
Track Name: Greyscale
To wake unfamiliar
On a ground of stone agony
My eyes are shrouded

Mind's aflame
Piercing light
Writhe agony
Pain

I let it take hold
This system of malady
Obscuring my vision
The colors are blinding

Mind's aflame
Piercing light
Writhe agony
Pain

The haze is blinding my sight
Any vibrancy has vanished
I'm no longer in control
The colors are fading

To rest in a wash of hues
To drift in a sea of tone
To wake to grey.
