Track Name: From Here To Oblivion
This cycle, the one that's in the way
I'll be reminded
This feeling, it wont be torn away
I'll be reminded

Do we give ourselves the chance...

Do we stand hopeless?
Why is it every man for himself?
Do we stand faithless?
Why don't we give ourselves the chance to love?

Do we stand hopeless?
Why is it every man for himself?
Do we have purpose?
Why don't we give ourselves the chance to live?

I will not give up, will not give in
This is my life...

This way, we can't live for tomorrow
(Within this moment)
This way, we can change for today
(Why are we waiting?)

It's the chance of our lives

One hope, one solution
It's the chance of our lives
Track Name: Broken Eyes
They gave us broken eyes
But we see everything

We've made decisions based on what we were told
The deal was struck with the bloated sense of something owed

If this is who we are
then this is how we'll fall

They gave us broken eyes
But we se everything
We see through broken eyes
But we see everything

No trust
False hope

A generation slaved to always conform
A shackled limb holds the fist that's clenched to break the mold

You can't close these eyes
They see everything
You can't close these eyes
They see all

You can't hide from us

This is not who we are
We are more than this
Track Name: The Ocean Will Drag Us Down
Now I'm treading water
And these ocean waves keep pulling down
Now I'm treading water
And these ocean waves keep holding...

Down on this will to survive
Crushed by the weight of the world
How can this be all that's left?
When our hearts are beating, my hands are bleeding

Now I'm dragging the water's surface
Trying to find a way back from this
Searching beyond the waves for purpose
Now I'm dragging the the water's surface

Now fight for your life

Our hearts are beating, my hands are bleeding
Track Name: Paper Shell
Horror comes alive
Damaging the way you feel
Broken paper shell
The realisation of your weakness

This life born from trust
This love killed by lust

Trying to release myself
Wanted to believe in falling
Trying to release myself
Cut away and I'll be falling

Absence of the soul
In the wake of all thats done
Wanted to be by your side
Now I'm falling from this world

Falling away

All this love gone to waste
All this trust is unfounded
We just give it away
They just take what they want and leave us to bleed
Track Name: A Song For Stella
Standing silent in this moment of waiting
For your heart, your breath
In this moment we wait...

For the time to give way
For the borders to fall
For the Unknown to wash away

Can you show me?
Can you help me to understand?
Can you sing me the song I've been waiting for?

For the time to give way
For the borders to fall
For the doorway to open in this dream

For the time to give way
For the borders to fall
For the unknown to wash away
Track Name: Journey Of A Weathered Mind
I walk alone, no solace
The barren depths below
The meaning of this burden
Is lost with no resolve

I will...
Control this
Destroy this

And in the wake of it all I will decide
If this is what I believed in all this time

What do I believe?

One day walkaway from this idea
One day walk away from my life

With everything that's haemorrhaging from me
The last thing I want is this to burn away
To fade away from me

This is everything to me

With everything that's haemorrhaging from me
The last thing I want is this to burn away
It's everything
It's my only way

This is everything to me

Was this what I believed in?
Control or destroy?
I will decide

Control

Destroy
Track Name: The Beast Was Slain By The Strength Of Many
The surface we rise
To see all we need to be
Our strengths will collide
Crashing to feed our dreams

In this life we live

Can you feel it give way?
Can you feel it all crumble away?
And as the moment subsides
Hold that feeling

Continue to fight
To throw ourselves in the deep
Lift to the sky, lift to the sky and be taken
Beyond what you feel, beyond what you see
Track Name: Echoes Through Eternity
What's the sense in leaving matters to the wind?
All that's done
All that's left unresolved, undefined

Give yourself the focus
Focus on your drive
Know that this is your way

Show us your fight

All that we've done and all that we are
(All that defines our time)
Will echo through and live on forever
(Though eternity)

All this hope
Unresolved

All we've done
All we are
Echoes Through Eternity

Will you see yourself
Will you be yourself

Tell me how you'll define yourself
Track Name: Ode
The time it took to say
Beyond my selfish fears
You're all that I needed

The lights that guide my way
To make it through the night
You're all that I needed

Take it all, my fears
Take it all, the doubt in my heart
Take from me all you need
Take it all, my love
