Track Name: Villains
They try to fools us with an image of a leader
No, they come in two by two and they abandon you.
Collecting dignity as cavil, horrendous pride
Putting all thoughts aside

The war is tough
But ripping the words from my throat
just isn't enough to compel what you sell

It's so meaningless
They put the blood on our hands
Reload the chambers while we're soundly sleeping
Terrorize me no more I am leaving
I'm sick of dining with the evils of man

Right now,
We have to fight for the billions
Cause I fear the day we have to we bury our children
Our whole damn world is diseased by villains
It's push and pull for every deserving soul
That is caged by their own self-worth in vain

We cant, we cant change
we can't change bitter hearts
(we can't change bitter hearts with bitter hearts)

My stars and stripes are losing color
My stars and stripes are losing honor

It's so meaningless
They put the blood on our hands
Reload the chambers while we're soundly sleeping
Terrorize me no more I am leaving
I'm sick of dining with the evils of man
It's so meaningless
They put the blood on our hands
Replacing safety with an unwelcome feeling
Propagate us with the lies that your feeding
I'm sick of dining with the evil
Track Name: Everon
So it comes to this:
A battle for spotlights, an endless debacle of trends
Carving the way for unspeakable let downs and everyone bends or they break

This is a reason to commit treason
When did being alone become an image for people to hold?
"You'd better take it on the arches kids"

You think this world owes you something
well then you'd be dead wrong
You have a lack of effort to make yourself
When faceless figures play the role of helping hands
we know these are the heads we have to cut off
These are the heads we cut off
Cut 'em off.

This is a reason
to commit treason

This won't stop until it all has
Buried us while we're still breathing
Down in ashes, laid to rest they'll
Twirl their thumbs while we move ever on
Move ever on

So take a second to admit that pain can not be tamed
It fears the ones who have the strength of hope engraved
This is the life I lead to keep my demons sieged
In the light of a new resurrecting fiend

And if you throw it down
I'll burn it up
I'm sick of seeing you all self-destruct

This is a reason
to commit treason

This won't stop until it all has
Buried us while we're still breathing
Down in ashes, laid to rest they'll
Twirl their thumbs while we move ever on
Track Name: Home (feat. Kenny Carter)
Oh my god, I was a fool
I can't believe I left this, this is my home
Ascend with me; Sing with me, we are the last
The fearless, the brave, the only ones

This is the way that you learn
Tearing your life up at every turn
The truth is deceiving, yet, it has a meaning
and ultimately you will burn

So give this pain to the bottom of the sea
A place to dark and cold for me
No, I can't save you, No, this time you're through
The ruins of my cause
This is the truth of the world I've discovered
We are the horrors with which it is covered
So lie to me, pray for me
but don't you take this from me

No, I can't believe I tried to do this on my own, on my own
I love you, I love you, I need you, I need You
My brothers and sisters the heart of my virtues
So we're in this together
We need the sound yeah, we sing it together
We need the sound
We need the sound

The "rap tap da tap tap da da da da da"

This is the way that we learn
Tearing our lives up at every turn
The truth is deceiving yet it has a meaning
and ultimately we burn

So give this pain to the bottom of the sea
A place to dark and cold for me
No, I can't save you, No, this time you're through
The ruins of my cause
This is the truth of the world I've discovered
We are the horrors with which it is covered
So lie to me, pray for me
but don't you take this from me

Don't take away
No way
We need the sound

This is our home
Track Name: Runaway
I have known this all along
Live your past like it still belongs
You have sat on your childish thrown
Count mistakes that you can not atone
Poison all of the air in your lungs
Like the taste on your wicked tongue
Take your place among righteous foes
Tell me, is it the love you fake the most?

You know the worst has come when you feel so numb

When you run away
Cause facing fear has never been so trying and uninviting
Because the worst it comes, the worst it comes when you let go
of all you know

To Leave a mark is all you love for
But all your marks leave me disfigured
And how watered down do you think you can make your fate
It must be comfortable living in a serpent's hole

You know the worst has come when you feel so numb

When you run away
Cause facing fear has never been so trying and uninviting
Because the worst it comes, the worst it comes when you let go
of all you know

There is a line that divides us from the same
These are the truthful words
There is line

When you run away
Cause facing fear has never been so trying and uninviting
Because the worst it comes, the worst it comes when you let go
of all you know
Track Name: Wolves
Control, you control
and you have no idea of the horrible toll you cause
Tt lasts a lifetime
Unshattered by the ones who always pass you by
And how could you be such a fool
This is a treasured place that no man should disgrace
I would rather be fed to the wolves
Than thought so amorous in this ridiculous world

How do you think that you are supposed to make amends
When your prideful defense defines you as a man
Who let the fire in?
Who let it in?

I know this sucks
and you wanna know what makes him tick
But most men would rather drown in the thick of it
Stability is a trait most unpracticed by the "analyzed" and the victims of a full-lived lie

We're not meant to beg for the prize
And I just want you to know that groveling will show
that you've been wasting your precious time
Cave in that wicked hole, you owe it to your soul

How do you think that you are supposed to make amends
When your prideful defense defines you as a woman.
Who let the fire in?
Who let it in?

And I don'twant to know but I have to know to help you
I don't want to know but I have to know to save you

We have to be the ones who love living for the right note therapy
Choosing destiny
Track Name: Dreamkiller (feat. Cory Brunnemann)
Measure up your success with a mouthful of faith
But I can't trust faith when it's taught with a stake
Your pulpit's painted red
And damn the man who puts you out on the line
Swears that your fine when his book of direction is fake
How can you live this way?

Wicked soul, Listen close:
Greedy hands bury faith in the dirt with the worms
You will learn your true worth

Measure up your success with a mouthful of faith
But I can't trust faith when it's taught with a stake
I build up my shelter to defeat your wake
Your wake

This is not the way I die

I've been purging with a movement; this movement is true
And this time the movement is coming for you
Shapeshifter, Dream Killer
Send out the word: this is the purge coming for you

(Cory Brunneman of Through Arteries)
Well your blind to love, yet you preach a flood will take the hearts void of the "love" that your full of
And when the day has come and no one can ignore these awful acts you won't deplore...
What will you stand for?

Stop with the smiles cause you're selling them cheap
To compensate value of utter defeat
Your maker set judgment you'll never be free
Abandon your brothers and turned to the thieves

This is now your tragedy

I've been purging with a movement; this movement is true
And this time the movement is coming for you
Shapeshifter, Dream Killer
Send out the word: this is the purge coming for you

It's just a sick, sad, harrowing sin
You're just a curse that takes what he can't give

Dream Killer
Dream Killer
you stole the hearts of a million or more
Dream Killer
Dream Killer
betrayed the trust of the hopeful and pure
Track Name: Outriah
You better save the change because the price you pay
will never be the same, no it can't be the same
cause it's a billion to one, and equal to none
and it makes me sick

So kindly wander
until both your feet break and then you can sprout your wings
to carry you over these bridges that are so untrusting

This goes around like such a filthy, filthy pesticide
We are the product of wretched thinking
I try to teach you but it's pointless now to justify
What this means to survive

Row, row
We've got to get to shore, yes we've got to get to shore now
Row, row
Because the beast will rise you can see him in my eyes

You're a pariah drowning in self-scorn
Just an outlier searching for a home
Outriah

They say that a man should know the depths he treads
before making a name for himself
before floating in pure undulation
They say that a man should know the steps
to shatter his bones, and listen for tones
that raise his heart from the hell he's known

So kindly wander
until both your feet break and then you can sprout your wings
to carry you over these bridges that are so untrusting

It goes on and on, we go on and on

I'll wear the crown take the blame
You're too stupid to take it yourself
Down for the count wear the shame
It's the price I was dealt to be paid
(I bury all my subtlety)
(with all utmost sincerity )
( so you may ridicule me )
(with harsh tongues so unholy)
Track Name: Anchors
It’s inevitable the way things work, don’t you know?
So incredible, the changes force us to grow
Backwards in a forward time, no enemy to find
You only have yourself to blame

I’ll tell you everything is gonna be alright
so you won’t coast off, you won’t coast off
Better grab my hand because your anchor’s thin
and I can’t stand to watch you hurt
Again I know I’m really just not in my place
To say I’d be a mess without you
But you know I really love the moments
when I make you laugh and we can lean against…

Ten times the man I used to be
But I’d lose him all over again if it’s meant to be
I swear it’s meant to be

Because you cannot search when you have no bones
And you will not float, you will not float when your sea is stone

I’ll tell you everything is gonna be alright
so you won’t coast off, you won’t coast off
Better grab my hand because your anchor’s thin
and I can’t stand to watch you hurt
Again I know I’m really just not in my place
To say I’d be a mess without you
But you know I really love the moments
when I make you laugh and we can lean against
What we believe is true
You need this, I need you
It’s only up to you

I finally found a reason for it
I finally know, I know where I’m going
So stay right there, stay there

I’ll tell you everything is gonna be alright
so you won’t coast off, you won’t coast off
Better grab my hand because your anchor’s thin
and I can’t stand to watch you hurt
Again I know I’m really just not in my place
To say I’d be a mess without you
But you know I really love the moments
when I make you laugh and we can lean against
What we believe is true
You need this and I need you
It’s only up to you
