Track Name: Ignition
I can feel myself being taken over
Presented as an escape from what is real.
Deception snares even the best of us
I need to run. I need to get out of this skin.

I need to run. I need to get out of this skin.

And I will walk beside myself again.
Desperation makes itself at home.

My last chance is only getting closer.
If I could only count on you to break my fall.

You may run (and you may hide)
We both know how scared you are inside.
I can't even count how many times I've tried
To break down the walls that close in from behind.

And I will walk beside myself again.
Desperation makes itself at home.

My last chance is only getting closer.
If I could only count on you to break my fall.
Break my fall

Beyond safety and beyond reason,
You're not the only one running for your life.

I may run and I may hide.
We both know how dead I am inside.

I will never stop running.

I need to run.
I need to get out,
Out of this skin.
This isn't who I am.

Who I am.
Track Name: Identity
With baited breath, I have waited for the day
That man shall earn his rightful place.
That day has come, that place is here,
You can live without the fear, one day you will disappear.

For what it's worth, make due of the time that you have left.
You have left.

These are deadly waters that we're treading.
Unless you keep your head up, you're gonna drown.

Pull me up, I've been holding on for so long.
Save me now, I'm about to lose myself.

With baited breath, I have waited for the day
That man shall earn his rightful place.
That day has come, that place is here
You can live without the fear, one day you will disappear.

You may not know where you're heading.
But you can't stand around forever circling down.

These are deadly waters that we're treading.
Unless you keep your head up, you're gonna drown.

Pull me up, I've been holding on for so long.
Save me now, I'm about to lose myself.

For what it's worth, make due of your time.
You won't be by yourself, we're in this together.

No one will be left behind
Forever circling down.

For what it's worth, you cannot drown.
Track Name: Up in Smoke
Repercussions, nothing we haven't seen before.
Repetition, tripping over the same stepping stones.
Where is the light at the end of the tunnel?
It seems like we're slipping away from everything that we know.

I never pictured myself, standing here
Begging for reason, begging for clarity.
In this moment, we will no longer be held down
By the weight of this dying world.

We will no longer be held down.

Which will it be, a place of salvation, or a place of eternal rest?
I'm losing my grip, I'm slipping away from reality.

I never pictured myself, standing here
Begging for reason, begging for clarity.
In this moment, we will no longer be held down
By the weight of this dying world.

Which will it be, a place of salvation, or a place of eternal rest?
I'm losing my grip, losing the fight,
Walking towards the blinding light.

Where is the light at the end of the tunnel now?

In this moment, we will no longer be held down
By the weight of our own...

Repercussions, it's nothing we haven't seen before.
Repetition, tripping over the same stepping stones.

Up in smoke!
Track Name: Pedestal (feat. Fred Beaulieu of Beheading of a King)
Burn away your ideals of purity.
Run away, towards the inevitable abdication.
And so, the end begins.
Our time has come.

We thought we could find the answer
To the questions that make us all wonder.
Could this be,
Could this be what we deserve?

Can this really be all that there is?
How can you expect me to accept this
When we are the ones held accountable?
When we are the ones on the pedestal.
The ones on the pedestal.

We sought some form of closure,
Could this be what we deserve?

Can this really be all that there is?
How can you expect me to accept this
When we are the ones held accountable?
How can you expect me to simply accept this
When we are the ones held accountable?

As we rise up the tyranny falls.
Burn your amendments and tear down your walls.
We put ourselves upon the pedestal.

The flaws of all, displayed upon the pedestal
The path we have chosen, will forever remain...
The flaws of all, displayed upon the pedestal
The path we have chosen, will remain unspoken.

And so the end begins.
Our time has come.
The end begins.
The end begins.
Track Name: Jean Guy
Your back against the wall, it can be hard to see.
I know the choice ain't easy, so which one will it be?

We made the wasteland, distorting sight and sound,
This ship's forever sinking, into the fucking ground.
Every head we burn, and every bottle downed,
This ship's forever sinking, into the fucking ground.

I'd rather live like there's no tomorrow, I'll never sleep.
How did I get here? I only wanted to unwind.
I'm feeling restless, I think I may have crossed the line!

We made the wasteland, distorting sight and sound,
This ship's forever sinking, into the fucking ground.
Every head we burn, and every bottle downed,
This ship's forever sinking, into the fucking ground.

It was over way too quickly, we have gone too far this time.
You will find me, on the pavement, where we have come to die.
No more words, no excuses, we have come to die.

You're back against the wall, it can be hard to see.
I know the choice ain't easy, so which one will it be?
Track Name: Egodeath
I can't allow myself to forget.
I can only regress.
I can't allow myself to forget.

After the color is replaced by shade,
My thoughts produce at a quicker rate.
My mind molds with my skin and bones,
I am finally alone.

I visualize my potential behind closed doors (behind closed eyes)
And I toy with motivation: I tell myself lies.

I can't allow myself to forget (I can't forget).
I can only regress (I can only regress).
I can't allow myself to forget.

My past is alive, stuck in this bind I let the present die.
I let the present die.

Distancing myself from the instant that I felt better about this,
I am the constant participant.

But I have no choice, we all force our voices to speak for us.

What is honesty? (What is honesty?)
Not just another concept that we believe.

Who's in charge? (Who's in charge?)

Who's in charge here? Who's God should I fear?

I can't allow myself to forget (I can't forget).
I can only regress (I can only regress).
I can't allow myself to forget.
Track Name: Sleeparalysis
How can there be so many people awake and dreaming?
(Awake and dreaming)

How can this be?
How long has this been happening?

If the collective claim is that we are free,
Why are my choices given to me?
Why are my choices given to me?

I carry my own weight,
I will not allow corruption to overtake (to overtake).

I do not follow conspiracy.
I've adopted appropriate rationality (rationality).

It all started when I woke up to find myself in shock, I thought:
"I'm twenty years too late, how can I be the change?"

I reside where I survive,
But I am conditioned to have people by my side.

I do not follow conspiracy.
I've adopted appropriate rationality (rationality).

We've made ourselves enemies,
Greed's breeding distrust in the streets.
So many potential friends shot down
At the hands of judgment (judgment).

I am in shock (I am in shock).
I am in fucking shock.

When did this happen? I'm twenty years too late.
So much hesitation, how long will I wait?

Twenty years too late,
How long will I wait?
