Track Name: Rest Assured
I believe beyond this anarchy and burning secrecy
That you are meant to be, you're meant to be with me
And I believe I need to play a thief
Defeat my adversary and you'll come with me
Won't you come with me and then be mine?
Be mine

Glass must be broken, smashed, and a fortune stolen
I will stay my tries until the time is right

I'm not about to try to speak my mind
Abandon hope or leave this thought behind
The mistakes that break will not be mine
And I will wait, wait for my time

I can see there's more than meets the eye, barely beneath these lies
And still I try to hide, I try to hide away
My secrets tight until the time is right, annihilate disguises
When your soul collides, your soul collides with mine

And when you realize what lies inside
Then the time is right
The mistakes that break will not be mine
And I will wait, wait for my time
Track Name: Breathe Easy
You are not the cause of this, it's me
Insanity
Driving down that road alone, it's me
I would not wish this on my greatest enemy
Insanity

Moving forward and standing still
And still

Pushing the limits until they distort
The way you view the scenario
I have laid out
Necessary on all accounts
The scenario we will play out
Play out

Weight will be lifted up
I will breathe easy

Weight will be lifted
I will breathe easy
No longer tacit
Truth will release me

Tightening grip has dissipated
The buried truth, in chains below
Found it's way
And I am here and I am aware
My mind and soul are finally clear
Without fear

At peace now
And one with my surroundings
We are the same

Weight will be lifted up
I will breathe easy

The rhythm, the rhythm that drives your,
Your delayed reaction
Is a natural outcome
To this bold action
I'll take so much satisfaction in your response

Will I see you again, don't want this to be the end
Will I see you again, my friend?

Did you really know me?
Did it all work, all inside out?
The future isn't ugly
If you look then you'll find out
Did you really see me?
Did it all work, all inside out?
The future isn't ugly
If you look then you'll find it

Weight has been lifted
I can breathe easy
No longer tacit
The truth has released me
Track Name: All We Are
The moment came, the moment passed
The truth has broken through at last
Thought I assured my rest
Escaped this heavy breath
The chance of failure far surpassed

This is all we are

But hope can only get you so far
Wounds will ease but leave deep scars
You're bound to feel the cut
When you open yourself up
And now this is all we are

This is all we are
Track Name: Cut The Rope
I've been searching chance
And I've been searching fate
Tangled bodies dance
Nowhere to find my place

Forgotten in a world
Dialed in to lovers play
I hear the sounds they make
From where I'm kept at bay

The final strands of hope
At last begin to fray
A distant sky of crows
Is calling me away

The ties that bind are thin as threads
I cut the rope once again

A thousand feet below, I toil night and day
A faceless name unknown, the monster in my veins
A prisoner of this game, my life I contemplate
Imaginary chains, I forged myself this way

No matter where the light, the shadow still remains
I cut the rope
Track Name: The Final Cry
On the path to vindicate
Blood and blackened gold exchanged
Our victories annihilate
Dirty earth is set ablaze

And I wanted to save you from all the crimes of human kind
On a starship of freedom across space and all through time
Unto a world and a kingdom
I never knew you were left behind
Your final cry still haunts my mind

Stars appear
Your voice is near
Forgive me, dear
Forever true
I watched you disappear

And I wanted to save you from all the crimes of human kind
On a starship of freedom across space and all through time
Unto a world and a kingdom
I never knew you were left behind
Your final cry

The weapon is deception
It breaks into our heads
Societies' delusion
The beast is never fed

We already know it's all ours to take
This new paradise won't be the last one we break

Fasten up, united fear
When the rockets burst in air
Engines blast up past the atmosphere
No smoke and ash up here

Give us some more
“Freedom”

And I wanted to save you from all the crimes of human kind
On a starship of freedom across space and all through time
Unto a world and a kingdom
I never knew you were left behind
Your final cry still haunts my mind
Track Name: Steel String Cage
A spinning wheel in a cover band
Sucking all that the radio has
I made an easy soul decision
Stealing pieces of promised land

Glamorize me seven lies
You bar star, you flirty talker
I've fallen under a red, red sky
Carrying these crooked crosses

Am I predator or prey?
Slave in a steel string cage
On Las Vegas Cocaine
Entertaining until I Cobain in LA
A slave in a steel string cage
And I'm the only one to blame

Intoxicated producer man
He was someone in cyber land
He took me on his grand illusion
Popping pills for my broken hands

We're kamikaze, culture def
One stop from my rock bottom
Contemplating one shot left
Then I heard the drums of autumn

Am I predator or prey?
Slave in a steel string cage
On Las Vegas Cocaine
Entertaining until I Cobain in LA
A slave in a steel string cage
And I'm the only one who's comfortably insane

Why did I deny what lay right before my eyes?
The hype was built to cover and disguise
Victimized, I act surprised
I am your puppet on a stage

Am I predator or prey?
Slave in a steel string cage
On Las Vegas Cocaine
Entertaining until I Cobain in LA
A slave in a steel string cage
And I'm the only one to blame
Track Name: Crossfire
Feel the cold
It blankets everything but won't condole
Should have known
To read the script, I've lost my grip
My hold, I've lost control

Does it feel right to cut and run?
Escape our past and break
The future like a bullet out a gun

Choosing what's right from what's left
There's nothing left

Feel the swell
Neglected for so long it won't dispel
Takes its toll, the crushing weight
That fell and broke my soul
I've lost control

No remorse, cut and run
Escape our past and break
The future like a bullet out a gun

Choosing what's right from what's left
There's nothing left

I never wanted to hurt you
I never thought I'd feel this way
I never wanted to hate you
But that all changed

Now he is you, and you are me
It's vanishing, your sympathy
Mutating into apathy
Cause he is you, and you are me
You're me
I'm sorry

Why, why do I feel the need to try?
I've heard it all before
You disappeared
How did a view distorted
Seem so clear?

And though I wanted to hurt you
And make you feel this way
I never wanted to hate you
And that won't change
Track Name: Sirens
Ocean's cry, when the sun falls down beneath the tide
Now I'm mourning light and the darkness sails across the sky
I close my eyes and I pray that she won't pull my mind
Beneath the brine, the siren's song that sinks my life

She casts her spell, I hear her call
And I fear the shrinking walls
Caught in her cage, with crushing weight
And all of my resistance slowly fades away...

Ocean's cry, when the sun falls down beneath the tide
As do I, the tears form waves to swallow lives
I close my eyes and I pray she will return in time
The child of mine, the child destroyed by all mankind

You obey all I say
And you are mine to keep
Forever more my prey
Your end will mark my vengence, you belong to me

Her ballad warns of tragedy
Tales transcend in song
Her voice is bound inside of me
I'm pleading for the dawn
There's beauty found in danger
Temptation is too strong
Thought I could resist her, thought I could
Now I know that I was wrong
Track Name: Pyre
Here I lie, am I still alive?
Overturned in my waking life
Nowhere I can hide away this crime
The fire burns house of lies

Afraid, I've been digging my own grave
All day and night
In flame, I'll be sealing my own fate
When I burn this life

Time has come to pay the dark one
Underworld has won mother's son
See the light of flame releasing pain
The fire flows through my veins

Time keeps ticking, I keep digging
Until I burn this life

Afraid, I've been digging my own grave
All day and night
In flame, I'll be sealing my own fate
When I burn this life

Melt away
At the stake
The end awaits
Ignite now

Take this past away
Erase this haunted memory
Make me enemy
And play a murder fantasy

And I've been waiting for the stars to fall
To fall right down from the sky
And crash into the earth
And smash and burst
And all the dreams will cry

And they'll get what they deserve
For telling all these lies
That “I am more than I am worth”
And “broken wings can fly”

And they'll get what they deserve
For telling all these lies
That “I am more than I am worth”
And “I can fly”

Afraid, I've been digging my own grave
All day and night
In flame, I'll be sealing my own fate
When I burn this life
