Track Name: Temporal Ocean
Pulled back to life, another drifter in the sea
Stuck in the new wave of history
Pulled to the surface from the depths of my defeat
Stuck in the new wave, these tides won’t let me free

Daylight inundates my mind with everything I left behind
Cast me aside and drown me with these memories
These tides won’t let me free
Pulled back from sleep, stuck in the new wave
High tide on the temporal sea
Night time lets me live a lie where everything can be forgotten
I just throw it away, throw it away, throw it away
Surrendered to the deep
Pulled back from sleep, stuck in the new wave
Release your hold and let me sink

Lower me back into the night
I belong where the cold and the dark is
Lower me back into the night
I’m not the moon, not the tide, just a drifter in the sea
I’m not the wind in the sky, just a victim of history
I’m not the flame in the darkness you wanted me to be
I’m just a failure, send me back to sleep

I’ve made my home down here in the lightless deep
What makes you think I want to be saved?
I’m not afraid of the night, I’m afraid what I’ll find by the light of day

I’m tired of the tiredness, so sick of the sickness, this temporal ocean is leaving me swept away
I’m tired of the tiredness, so sick of the sickness, this temporal ocean is leaving me swept away
Please just forget my face
I’m not the moon, not the tide, not the soul of the sea
I’m not the wind in the sky, shaping history
I’m not the flame in the darkness you want me to be
I’m not afraid of the dark, I’m afraid of me
Track Name: Ashfall
Suspended, encapsulated in time
At odds with my mind
Cause I don't wanna believe I’ll never have the means to make amends with everything that I let die
And it scares me to think I could have all the right intentions
But still make all the wrong decisions

And every time I dragged you forward, it took you back to the hell you fled
And every time I warmed your frozen heart, it burnt you to bones
I'm standing on the precipice
And the only way is down

Choking on the embers of the flames that took you
Every tortured prophecy of my darkest dreams has echoed true
This land rejects me
And these stars won't guide my way
The ash clouds obscure the path to redemption
In endless grey

The smoke coalesces and takes on form
A phoenix of ashes, my fears reborn
Suspended in time, my doubts run free
Gripped by the fear that you'll always hate me

My time is ending, my back against the grave
This land won't miss me, these stars won't know my name
Scattered in the wind, I've lost myself, I've lost my way
Just remember me, for what I was, not what I became

I've drowned in my shame
In the end I've got only myself to blame
Remember me but for not what I became
Track Name: Lightless
Chained down by defeat
The cyclic torment of life in repeat
And every thought became a burden on me
It dragged me down to a world I never dared to believe
Fallen into an abyss of misery
Buried inside myself, no room to breathe
A subterranean tomb
I watched in horror as you dug this hole for me

You cast me into the deep
And left me there
When all I wanted to room to breathe
I dared to look upon your sky
I bared myself to the light, and lost my soul to the shadows
You fucking cast me down
I bared myself to the light, but the shadows pulled me down into the ground

I'm stranded beneath the earth
It's lightless, I can't get out

And for a time I was your spectre
A false reflection of the hate you shone on me
I just want to make you see
You could've been my light
You let me die in a crevasse of earth and stone

But I found glimmers in the darkness
And it was in the black of night that I found the fire to find my own way to the surface
I never needed your light
All I needed was some time

The sun has set on your horizon
In the night sky, the moon will rise again
And in the absence of your withering gaze
My light will grace the earth, my light will set the stars ablaze

Silver strands eclipse the gold
Effulgence lights an empty heart
I'm no longer your ghost
Living off stolen glimmers in the dark
Unearthed radiance fills the night
The ending marks the start
I have found new life

I wasted all my golden years
Trapped inside these catacombs of your imagination
And though you only gave me hatred I won't give you mine
I never needed your light
All I needed was some time
Track Name: Shifting Sands
All things are transient around me
Nothing is ever true for long
The sandstorm rages on
The gods of wind reinvent the dawn horizon
Beneath my feet the sands are shifting
Nothing familiar remains
And as the chaos reigns
I find the peace of mind to live again

All the land is dark and strange
Torn apart and reborn, locked in endless change
I’m lost in a cycle
Lost in a never-ending clash of wills
All the land is dark and strange
Though all I loved has died, still I won’t meet my end
This is my time to live again

Mirrored in the motions of the sun
I cast my fears into the dust
The dust of ages dead and lost to the world
Lost in the desert of time
I cast my fears into the dust, I cast my chains aside
Every dawn a lifetime is begun
I pulled my dreams back from the void, reclaimed them all
Just take each passing moment at a time
I cast my fears into the dust, I left my chains behind

Don’t look back, the past is nothing but the shift of sands
Desert dreams no longer desecrate my mind
Though dark mirages beckon me
Free from my eyes, at last I see

I am the wind upon the marches
The dunes are sculpted by my hand
No more am I a slave of fortune
I’ve found a way to cast my fears aside into the dust

Pulled from the whirl of shifting sands
Deliverance, deliverance
I’ve found a way to cast my fears aside into the dust

Like the hopes and fears in our hearts, empires of sand will rise and fall
Feel the dawning of dusk on the wind, feel the pulse of life that walks inside us all

There’s something moving through the wind
This fatal ending draws me to begin
Feel the dawning of dusk, there’s a pulse in all of us
Turn your fears into dust, there’s a pulse in all of us
There’s a pulse in us

Rise, fall, feel the pulse inside of us all
Rise, fall, take your fears and cast them all into the dust
Track Name: Tantalus (feat. Jared Ipsen)
Witness, the end is in sight
Put up your walls and leave the remainder to die

We numbed our hearts and called it freedom
Closed our eyes behind stone walls
We prayed our hate would save us
Hate has betrayed us
Cut out our eyes and enslaved us

Strain your senses to the cipher of tantalus
There’s a rift in us, the division is killing us
Mind separates from heart and in time, the heart won’t pulse
As the mind conceives what it’s relinquished

I’m standing at the end of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?
I’m standing at the edge of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?

What does it mean to truly be free, free to wander this ancient valley?
Each twisting path bears a legacy
We did not carve on our own
Each step you’ll never walk alone
So tell yourself you’re more deserving than them
Wallow in hatred to distract from the hate of self, see what you want to see
Do anything to believe you’re free despite the noose around your neck

At the seeping core of this paralysis
There’s a wound in us, indecision is killing us
Mind separates from heart

I’m standing at the end of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?
I’m standing at the edge of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What will it take to remind us of our lost humanity?

And to think the bliss we had was never enough
Will we ever forget about our pride and start again?

We’re still so guarded at the end
Will we ever forget about our pride and start again?

And to think we never dared to take a stand
Shame on us, shame on you
By now we know we won’t pull back from the embers
All we can do is lament how cheap we sold humanity

I’m stranded in the depths of defeat

No way out this time
This fragile state of mind rewinds and in the end there’s nothing left to say
There’s no release from this, the truth can’t be forgotten
I’m stranded in the depths of defeat
This fragile state of mind rewinds and in the end there’s nothing left to say
There’s no release from this, the truth can’t be forgotten, the world is stained
I’m drowning in the depths of defeat
Track Name: Water's Edge
In the midst of a dream
It's hard to see the sense in sanity
We're living like our end is preordained
Surrendered our will to open flame

In search of warmth
We'll set the world ablaze
If we can't face ourselves
We'll roam the vestige of a dying world

Locked in circadian silence
Blind to the sight of all that's wrong
With our will to slumber on
If we can't face ourselves
We'll roam the vestige of a dying world

The clouds will rumble, the wind will call
The earth will crumble and fall
And I can't face myself
I need to find a way to end this hedonistic dream
Or we will lose it all

We will lose it all

Locked in circadian silence
Deaf to whispers that something is hopelessly wrong
With our will to slumber on
Now we must face ourselves in time
While there's something left to save
I'll defy this caustic dreamscape
And I will fight it to my grave

We look out in fear
At the tide of change
But nothing scares me more than the notion
That things might stay the fucking same

In the cold reflection
We will face ourselves
And find new direction
At the water's edge
In the cold reflection
We will face ourselves
And find new direction

With every hollow breath, I grow closer to the truth
That simply living means nothing when we're living off borrowed happiness
So I will leave all warmth behind and give myself unto the waves
