The Clearing

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.

Fade Out 02:23
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.

Undertow 01:33
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.

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to struggle Unwavering desire to grasp A world based in concrete Succumb to the reality Hesitation wounds you Withdrawn from certainty Struggle to Conform to their ideals Embrace the vacancy of mind Continue in a path Towards constant strife Hesitation wounds you Withdrawn from certainty Struggle to I found you in this well Holed up I extended my hand Pleaded for help Watched you Go forth in ruin Embrace ruin.

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.

Focal Point 02:29
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.

Marshfield 05:04
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

Greyscale 06:27
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.
