Track Name: clocktower
You wanted the world
You wanted the world to burn
Cleanse our lives and start again
And I never believed it

These castle walls are shattering
The Earth is open wide
Swallowing all that I’ve toiled for
My blood and sweat to make this life less foreign
To stop our might from falling

So ask me
Why would I stoke the fire brighter?
To see through my consequences lost
I failed to let us start again
What have I done?
Become the catalyst to being as one and all

None of us are innocent
But what makes all this worth it once you’ve folded?
This isn’t how the game ends

How did you dream of it?
No value for life
How has it come to this?
Dismantle our crown

And I failed to let you fall and change the world
To let your vision die

You wanted the world to burn
Cleanse our lives and start again
And I never believed in you

Why would I stoke the fire brighter?
To see through my consequences lost
I failed to let us start again
What have I done?
Become the catalyst to being as one
Track Name: bodies like streetlights
No civility left when push comes to shove
Open the gates of pure atrocity
No one can hide
No one is safe with desperation’s hands around your throat
Show me what
What you’re made of

Your humanity is just a shadow
A sham
A ghost of what’s left behind
Killed by our own designs
Begging for naught

Chaos
Devour the world alive
Betraying each other

Suck it up
It only hurts for a second once you’ve gone too far
Still I never asked you why
The horror brings the thrill
The glamour
Makes you feel alive

As you string them up and cover your eyes
I won’t wait for you to prove yourself
As you burn the past and leave it to rot
Keep bending my will
(Submit yourself to panic)
String them up and cover your eyes
I won’t wait for you to prove yourself
As you burn the past and leave it to rot
Keep bending my will

No one can hide
Track Name: iron grip and empty lungs
Now that the slate is wiped clean
Free of error
Free of fault
I feel no semblance of pain
Guilt or shame

Carnage words can’t describe
Barely a ground left to walk upon
Mountains are made out of less
I’ll rebuild it with my bare hands

What was the purpose?
What can I do?
Where can we go from here when I was the cause?

Now that life support is failing
Every strand of the safety net is cut
I’ll find a better way
I know a better way to fight for it
Kicking and screaming
Blaming
This fault is not my own
This fault is all of our hatred and ignorance
We never mattered
The battle may be lost
I won’t go down in vain

Paint the walls
We need this story told
I’m not the one to live with it
But I’ll always be the one to know how all these chapters close
History will not be kind when it does not exist

Don’t blame me for good intentions
Who could really save the world from us?
Let it go
Watch it die

Weight
Weight of the world flaying flesh from my body
All my hope is fucking gone
We’re all traitors
Unconventional traitors
Track Name: no horizons
I’ll leave all that we have known behind
No will
No ashes to absolve this crippled form
Nothing but passion lost none of us ever deserved

Remain sedated
I don’t have the time to save you
With broken arms I’ll carry you home

When you’re all alone in this world
And there’s no one left to save you
What will you do then?
Who will you turn to?
When all is at an end
Will we stand our ground?
We all fall

Lead us, leave us, wipe us away
Pay our debts and prove me wrong
Can anyone lose when we never really had a chance?

Remain sedated
I don’t have the time to save you
With broken arms I’ll carry you home

We’ve all wrought what we’ve endured
Suffocate in our remorse

Remain sedated
I don’t have the time to save you
With broken arms I’ll carry you home

Remain sedated
