Track Name: When Conscience Calls
I once thought I had it all, everything I'd ever need
Was right here at my feet

Maybe it's a sign, a mirror of shining hope?
All the reflections in the water tell a different story

[Chorus]
Could you walk a mile in my shoes?
Or cross the bridges that I've straggled along?
When the odds are stacked so high on you
would you have the strength to see it through?

Now is the time to read between the lines
To see out far in horizons beyond all God's known glory.

[Chorus]

Left with open wounds, it's made a man out of me
The only calling to arms for me is the beckoning quest to defeat myself
Submission to my demons is a relief from the pain that you cause me
A shotgun to the back of the head is the only alternative (that I have)

Please don't leave me with my mind [x2]

Won't you save us from ourselves?
Denial hinders foundations to build
And when we're incomplete, vital signs seem to fade away
The meaning to live, to breath has gone against all I have willed

Maybe it's a sign, a mirror of shining hope?
All the reflections in the water tell a different story
They speak to me on levels far beyond unknown
But none have meaning, guess I'll have to work it out alone

[Chorus]
Track Name: Coalescence
And the light begins to fade
Blotting out all that life has made

Hear me now

The frame of my essence
Burns before my eyes
Under affliction's curse
The spirit rots and dies

[Chorus]
Never thought of a good reason
To exert my life for pain
Wicked vice I lay my life on
No ascendancy to gain
(In silence, I divide)

Forever lost inside my mind
Illusive walls that keep me blind
I always thought this life would be somewhat benign
But now it seems as though my flaws are my design

And now I know of all the imperfections
I have been given that are built into me
Handed down from generations of conflict
The very lifeblood of this child is at stake

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Molecular Level
I'm
A shadow in surroundings
A lurker in the deep
Reaping all you've sown
But when you feel it

Oh by God, how you see the flash of light
Burning deep within your very soul
Pushing out the truth with all its might
Left to the mind, it takes its toll

Time will always tell
Reflecting chaos' bounds
The path that leads to nowhere
Healing all along

You're waiting all alone
No emotion ever shown
Redemption never comes
Falling through the hour glass
Time will tell

You envy the power to be what you're not
The mist that derails from the truth
(I'm) The darkness that blinds
The bleakness of black
The thing that deceives and consumes innocence

Time
Will tell
What's next
In line

So now
You know
This peace
Of mind

(Oh by God I see the flash of light)
(Burning deep within my very soul)
Track Name: Justify The Means
So you hate what you've become
In your mind you’ve come undone
But you and I are bound to be one

Let green fill your eyes
To beat what you despise
From ashes straight up to the skies

You’ve got something to prove
But nothing more to lose
You’re holding on to all the things you once refused

You say you wanna change the world
Well first change what's inside
For all you know, our minds coincide

Gaining the possessions we all crave
Salvation from an early grave
Departing from the life you claimed to save

Look beyond the boundaries
This vessel you have found
Is nothing but a crutch to the emptiness inside

Perception full of fears
Leaves no space for dreams
But in the end, does it even matter?
Does it justify the means?

See the path that you have chosen broken beneath your feet
Now listen to the real saviour written in concrete

And when all is said and done
The only thing on your mind
Is where our thoughts collide

Through all these gruelling days and sleepless nights
We'll dominate our own messed up paradise

Now, accept dependence of another kind
How? Reveal the darkness, open up your mind [x2]
Track Name: Devil Inside
Now we dance with the devil inside
In discretion to the mark of disorder
Once bitten, twice shy
I'm regretting the same ills over and over again

[Chorus]
But the memories remain
Fear is waking over me
The devil looms inside, divine
He sits in waiting softly nurtured by his song
maturing in the body and the soul

I've made some big mistakes before
but don't judge me when you're not so perfect yourself
and all these changes make me easy to loathe
but I am not somebody to fuck

I know my reasons for admissions to guilt
I took an oath and swore I'd never turn again
But I burned down all the bridges that we'd built
And the moment that you left my life I lived a lie

And in my mind I know I'm bound to these chains
A chance to let go will be coming but I don't know when
You know there's never a way to clear these blood stains
My attempts are weak so I won't even fucking try

[Chorus 2]
God, I ask for forgiveness
'cause I've sinned too many times
I don't appreciate the gift I've been given
A most pitiful crime
Lost within my selfish ways
I couldn’t move mountain
Now I blame myself for all disdain
(Just leave me alone)

Filled with spoils of the wicked
it's a glass on the table to be consumed

A cocktail of poison and sin
stealing all your desires, not to be (no more)

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2]
Track Name: Reflection
I recognise
The veil inside
I know this face
I've seen the expressions collide

(Recognise) This image betrays me
(Realise) The veil portrays

[Chorus]
Complete me now (help me)
Take me by the hand
Heed me now (change me)
Solace I demand [x2]

Clutches of unknown grasp me (Grasp me)
I see my image fading (Fading)
When I look in the mirror (Mirror)
Reflection's now degrading (Degrade) [x2]

I realise
My innocence
Is killing me
Impostor plays my ignorance

[Chorus]

Caged inside a dream is where you'll find me
Deep in the core, I reside
Bathing in the wisdom of an endless sea
Deep in the ocean, I hide

I see the false reflections all around
Lost in the depths, I languish to be found
Track Name: Whole Again
It's burning deep in my mind
Choking on supremacy
A potency undefined
Reaching out to me

In spite of all that I find
Laden with intimacy
A raw detail unrefined
Indecisively

[Chorus]
(So tell me) Why should I
Give up on my martyrdom now?
(So tell me) When in time
Will I become a whole again?

Oh, show me the blinding light that guides
And in the darkness turns the tides
I get this feeling there's a higher being
watching over me
Undeniably

Show me the path that I must follow
Run through the bounds that make me hollow
I get this feeling that I’ll never change
always stay the same
with myself to blame

It's melting into my soul
And bleeding insanity
Afraid I'll lose all control
Slipping from morality

[Chorus]

And when darkness turns the tides
I'm letting go

[Chorus]

Oh, show me the blinding light that guides
And in the darkness turns the tides
I get this feeling there's a higher being
watching over me
Undeniably

Show me the path that I must follow
Run through the bounds that make me hollow
I get this feeling that I’ll never change
always stay the same
with myself to blame
Track Name: Riding Through
What's left without the means to build on our philosophy?
What's right when all this time you feigned on what you swore?
The inner light will set you free
Tear through these bounds parting the sea

[Chorus]
Just what defines me
I'll never know
I can't keep breathing
And that is all because...
Oh, can you feel it now?
We're heading nowhere
lost in perdition
(Oh, can you feel?)
So just embrace it now
Feel all emotion
take hold of you
(Now this is real)

Hold on tight, as we
Ride through purgatory

Oh can't you hear the voice inside?
Repeating all the words we could say
Between celestial apartheid
In emptiness I yearn for a way

What's left, without a second wind to make it possible?
What's right? With every turn you make this world your own
Everything you hold make believe
Deceives the eyes we use to see

[Chorus]
Track Name: Opposing Force
Justify the reason for your desperate fall
Testify on wings that guide you through it all
Soaring high, see the world from above become so small
Knowing why, down on your knees, now you'll crawl

Jaws' embrace
You can't avoid the fate that traps you in totality
Dementia in it's utmost, purest form

So it turns out the very reason comes to stand
Fighting for cause that's long lost

I never thought I'd see the day of our demise
Lost in a memory and witness to the flames
When all is said and done and we've said our goodbyes
Remember who we were and not what we became

Now defy the womb that gave birth to all life
Tell a lie, the story that foretold of strife
End is nigh, wrath defined by sharpness of the knife
Now apply, now apply the faith in what you know

Turn, save face
Seeking more destruction as you lay to waste
The soul that once resided in your frame

So it turns out the very reason comes to stand
Fighting for cause that's long lost
Let it go

I never thought I'd see the day of our demise
Lost in a memory and witness to the flames
When all is said and done and we've said our goodbyes
Remember who we were and not what we became

Remember who we were
Remember who we were
Lost in this memory

Hear no evil, see no evil, fear no evil
Hear no evil, see no evil, fear no evil
Track Name: The Deity
No man can wield the power I possess
(I can give or take anything I feel)
Though it is yourself you try to suppress
(You will play the cards that I will deal)

You scratch the surface and take my name in vain
(You'll deal with the consequence)
Within the conscience, the demons you have slain
(Now say goodbye to innocence)

[Chorus]
I'll bring about the judgement
Of the world that you're living in
Remember who you were
Through the veil that you're giving in [x2]

My dear child, you're lost within your sins
(You're trapped within a lonely vessel)
You call upon me to save you and your kin
(But keep up with this holy conflict)

Make amends now or you will feel the shame
(Of being alive without a reason)
For that is how you need to play this game
(Past tendencies, you must restrict)

[Chorus]

Left with open wounds
While you've been calling my name
You don't appreciate the gift I have given
And you're the one that's to blame
An open door to the heavens above
Just keeps on beckoning, save all from reckoning
You will not be left behind
My dear child, you will all be forgiven in time

You must atone for your sins

Sky overshadowed
No help is nigh
No man is hallowed
In his eyes
Track Name: Forgotten
What does it all mean?
Is this where I meet my fate?
And where have you been?
I needed you and you turned away

The things that I've seen
Remind me I took it for granted
It's time to come clean
This isn't what I had intended

Oh no

But if this life was just a waste, what of my legacy?
Promise you won't forget me and all I aspired to be
From one plane to the next I just want to make you proud
Laying in sand and stone, my promises disavowed

[Chorus]
The battle is not lost but somehow I still feel that I've failed
To now give sacrifice, will God commend my soul?
I knew this day would come when through these hardships, I prevailed
Into the next life, I ascend

[Chorus]
