Track Name: Birth By Sleep
deep within the darkest recesses of my mind
there rests the body of a lie (no light)
when rest is restless, how long before there is nothing left of I
so i try to stay awake
so that these dreams can’t hold

RISING THROUGH THE GROUND
PEEL MY EYES AWAKE
AWAY FROM EVERYTHING I CAN’T ESCAPE
DREAMS BECOMING REAL
NIGHTMARES I CAN FEEL
TONIGHT

constantly reliving
every part so unforgiving thought, memory, premoniotion
my head spins in fear of what is born by sleep

ludid, i still see
pieces float around
remnants strewn, they’ve found me
unmended
trapped where darkness bleeds into the light

i lie awake, with conflict i can’t shake
tears through my life until i break
i break
Track Name: Saviors
well i said “Damn, it’s not the sabbath but your mary’s hailed high
do i see bloody crocadile tears running flom blind eyes?”
like a non-starter, self appointed martyr
two bit prick drenched in belile
you’ll serve us shit with a smile

STAND DOWN, YOU’RE NO SAVIOR
YOU CALL ON OUR FAILURES TO BURY YOUR OWN
WE NEVER ASKED TO BE SAVED
stand up and show me your fix
now i may be a man of many words
Oh. but i would never try to summon derelict herds
from the start watch the broken applaud
numbing their senses as much as “johnny law” will allot

STAND DOWN, YOU’RE NO SAVIOR
YOU CALL ON OUR FAILURES TO BURY YOUR OWN
YOU LEAD US INTO THE GROUND
stand down, you’re no savior
savior?
STAND DOWN, YOU’RE NO SAVIOR
YOU CALL ON OUR FAILURES TO BURY YOUR OWN
WE NEVER ASKED FOR YOU
savior, we never needed a phrophet
you are the last we would follow
we’re fine on our own
Track Name: Monuments
Behold the second coming of nothing
this is the end of hope, of dreams, and of your life
seems like you can't get over all this condemnation
and everyday you arise to be graced by more frustration

take this as a sign

NO SALVATION, NO CHANCE FOR DREAMS FULFILLED
ABANDON ALL HOPE

Another crushing dawn of emptiness
there's no peace, no love, no place to call home
Is this what you worked for?
Is this what you need?
or has everything simply turned to ash in the age of void?

NO SALVATION, NO CHANCE FOR DREAMS FULFILLED
ABANDON ALL HOPE
THE WAITING ENDS, THE END BEGINS
LOOK TO THE SKY, LOOK INTO THE ABYSS

This is the sound of the ocean's last wave just before it breaks
cant you well me what it takes to rebuild, to retake?
or is this just a waste of our time?
Track Name: Divine Unrest
well it's another sleepless night for you
I just keep racking my brain trying to decode every word you say
and why you defame
Yes, I fail at trying to turn a blind eye
to the ignorance you speak
Always tearing down the weaker man
God, your foolish antics just tear down my soul. . .

Break me down. You break me down. Unrest.
Break me down into a million pieces
You break me down. You make Sick. Unrest

You're out there moving your lips again
I'm so sick and tired of hear you
misguided words

No, this isnt over for you, but for us
soon we'll be moving on
Break Me Down. You break Me down. Unrest

Break me down. You break me down. Unrest
Break me down until there's nothing left
You break me down until I just can't take
Unrest. I just cant last

I guess i should take pit on the poor souls that feel the need
to tear down the world because they have themselves
but I don't
