Track Name: KMA
Lyrics:

I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive
I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive

I can try to relate
There’s only so much I can say
So should I read between the lines
Keep pretending I’m doing fine

I’m feeding off a version of
My life before the disaster
Memories the memories the memories
I’m feeding off a version of
My life before the disaster
Memories the memories the memories

I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive
I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive

Cutting through to the bone
Writhe as I watch the blood escape
Feel regret flood the mind
Life no one really wants to take

Cannot turn
Back the hands of time

Sealed my fate
With the edge of the blade
I’ve done wrong
Many times before

Drag me out
Take me back

Take me back to the past
Where the memory lies
Take me back to the past
Where the memory lies

I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive
I want to help you survive
But I’m fighting to keep myself alive
Track Name: Visceral Disillusion
Lyrics:

(You cannot see the light
But I know it’s not that simple)

I can try to convince you of it
But I can’t change your ways
Sitting stagnate in your ephemeral purgatory
Waiting for someone to show you
How to make reality change
You can try to fool yourself
But there’s no way you’re fooling me
I’ll never know why

You cannot see the light
But I know it’s not that simple

You can try to convince me of it
But I can’t change my ways
Sitting stagnate in my ephemeral purgatory
Waiting for someone to show me
How to make reality change
I can try to fool myself but
I’m not fooling
Anyone else but me

Risking it all
I’m leading myself away
From my home
Leave me alone
Risking it all
I’m leading myself away
From my home
Leave me alone

Starting a new path set to receive
Everything you could ask for
You would think it would be a relief
But there’s something that you’re not told
It’s all bullshit
Just a fucking game
So prepare to be shown the hard way
Lay down your pride
You have to withstand the other ninety nine percent
of wasted time to make the last one
Worth It all

Does it make it worth it at all
What’s the point
Why do we do this
Is it even worth it at all

Is the one percent worth it at all
Track Name: Waste
Lyrics:

Fighting off a tortured past
Turning into someone else that
Can cope with the habitat
Now there's nothing left to gain
Never remembering

Buried is something deep
I can always depend on

Surfacing I count the ways
Shifting focus to resent you all
Forget what it did for me
Holding onto petty life
Carry it with me

And I can never see
What this is doing to me

It's coming alive
The burden awakens
Now drowning inside of me
Some life
Waste

Weakening the inner pain
Cannot recall any time before
The night’s missing from the day
Make the mistake of giving up
Giving up on me

And I can never see
What this is doing to me

It's coming alive
The burden awakens
Now drowning inside of me
Some life
Waste

(Solo)

Will I turn to faith
As time goes faster
Watch you turn to waste
It's your disaster

I will walk away
And turn my back on
Everything we've made
It's your disaster
Track Name: I'm Saved
Lyrics:

Saved
By you
Up above
Let me show you I can
Teach you everything and
I am never wrong
Because

I’m saved
There's no need
To worry I am absolved
If I ask forgiveness
I can do no wrong
Because

I’m saved
By You
Up above
Let me show you I can
Teach you everything and
I am never wrong
Because I

I’m saved
By you
It’s grace
Follows me
To the deepest unknown
There I am immortal
I will never die
Because
Track Name: Mask
Lyrics:

The mask is on
Turning you into a sheep
Still feeling alone
Is this how you want to live

Falsify your image to please
Subjugate to a shallow society

Bash the lord
Nothing is ever good enough
Is it so hard
To be comfortable in your skin

Gaze into the mirror of shame
Beautiful only to the one who changed your name

You’re losing sight of who you are
The mask now covers your face
Trying to fit in with the others
Everyone is fake

Crush the soul
Pretending to be someone you’re not
Who is it really for
Does it aim to satisfy the inner

Portrayal of your vanity lost
The thin veil of perception turning to dust

Your mask is turning into dust
How long will you try to keep it up

Buried beneath the surface
All the hope I’ve had is gone
Forgive what I forgot
I realize now that I was wrong

Your mask is turning into dust
How long will you try to keep it up

Buried beneath the surface
All the hope I’ve had is gone
Forgive what I forgot
I realize now that I was wrong

(Solo)

You’re losing sight of who you are
The mask now covers your face
Trying to fit in with the others
Everyone is fake
Track Name: Wait for You
Lyrics:

Try to tell me any other way
Never listening to what they say
I have become the master
Of my destiny

(Lost in time)
In over my head
A feeling all too familiar
(Bleeding from the eyes)
Slipping out of my hands again
Will you help

Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you
Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you

Wait for you

Try to tell me how to spend my time
Who are you to even cross the line?
I have become the master
Of my own demise

Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you
Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you

(Lost in time)
In over my head
A feeling all too familiar
(Bleeding from the eyes)
Slipping out of my hands again
Will you help

Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you
Help me on my way
To find myself again
I'll wait for you
Track Name: Bed of Lies
Lyrics:

On a bed of lies
Comfortably you lay
Listen to their cries
Slowly getting weak

Not a pulse in your empathy
Only hate fueling energy
Like a snake in a human being
Running cold is the blood inside your veins

More lost than you'll ever be
Swimming in negativity
A nightmare of a memory
Never again will you have a friend in me

Taken for granted
I’ve seen this all before
Ignoring the ailment
Throw shade in my direction
Is this how you breathe

On a bed of lies
Comfortably you lay
Listen to their cries
Slowly getting weak

Your actions they appear to be
Cowardice the epitome
Realizing finally
Suffering from the insecurities

Withering is your sanity
Pushing down what is underneath
Bask in the impurities
Letting go innocent by your beliefs

Taken for granted
I’ve seen this all before
Ignoring the ailment
Throw shade in my direction
Is this how you breathe

(Guest Solo by Jeff Pogan)
Track Name: Erased
Lyrics:

It has begun
Something's happening
Empty shell is
Slowly surfacing
You thought it would
Be the end for me
But I'm just getting
Used to being free

And the weight of it all is sinking
Deeper and I can feel the need to
Erase and bleed other ways

I have become
Something that you hate
See right through me
Lead me to my fate
Never felt so
Many eyes on me
Since the day I
Opened mine to see

What was
Right in front of
Right in front of me
Where to
Where am I to
Where am I to go from
Here how
How did I turn out this way and
Why I can't remember
Nothing ever left inside

It can take control of you let it

(Solo)

What was
Right in front of
Right in front of me
Where to
Where am I to
Where am I to go from
Here how
How did I turn out this way and
Why I can't remember

And the weight of it all is sinking
Deeper and I can feel the need to
Erase and bleed other ways
And the weight of it all is sinking
Deeper and I can feel the need to
Erase and bleed other ways
Track Name: Going Away
Lyrics:

Does it make a difference
Whether or not I care
I am so insignificant
A speck of dust lighter than air with a
Cold dead gaze in my eyes
The crippling reality has
Left me desensitized
Into the dark abyss I stare

Drifting in emptiness
Sinking below the ocean
Decaying from within
Time has come to an end

Numbing the pain
Going away
Taking a loss

I’m searching for a meaning in
A world about to lose
We are growing in the billions
But no one seems to have a clue
Why the hell are we here and what
Happens when we die
What purpose do I serve on earth
Is death a transition into the sky

Drifting in emptiness
Sinking below the ocean
Decaying from within
Time has stopped in the moment
Drifting in emptiness
Sinking below the ocean
Decaying from within
Time has stopped in the moment

(Guest Solo by Malcolm Pugh)

System is in place
Mentally constrain the illusion
Through waves
Mentally depraved
System inherently polluted
Through faith

Drifting in emptiness
Sinking below the ocean
Decaying from within
Time has stopped in the moment
