Track Name: The Pathway | The Void
with nothing in sight
we'll drive through the night
hopeless
pull your hair out
the winds of change
the passage, the void
all of your time spent
just waiting to die
just turn your back on me
this life
should not have been
and should not be

Somewhere beyond the sea
the soil, the sky, the trees.

All of my life
I've been transparent
in dirt and dying leaves
it doesn't mean a thing

All of my life
I've been coherent
what has become of me?
it doesn't mean a thing.

Run
hide
dawns approach breathes life
pain
so heavy
roots are torn
like a giant's been dragging you
fall
like the trees
and leave behind
patches of broken earth.

with nothing in sight
we'll drive through the night
hopeless
pull your hair out
the winds of change
the passage, the void
all of your time spent
just waiting to die
since age 16
you sang of misanthropy
this life
should not have been
and should not be

Somewhere beyond the sea
the soil, the sky, the trees.

All of my life
I've been transparent
in dirt and dying leaves
it doesn't mean a thing

All of my life
I've been coherent
what has become of me?
it doesn't mean a thing.

Run
hide
dawns approach breathes life
pain
so heavy
roots are torn
like a giant's been dragging you
fall
like the trees
and leave behind
patches of broken earth.
Track Name: Colours
I was ready to feed my mouth
And I watched my skin turn white
I refused to make a sound
It was a bad one
I envisioned it healthy
Soon my cheeks were red
I gave my net to Philip
For two minutes of fun

Strafe
Knees bend
Back arch
Jaw clench

Pull until tendons snap
Pull the hairs from my neck
Doom burns my third eye
In two

I once lived with a guardian
Saw his eyes turn yellow
This was a season before
The end of summer
As I stood in a room painted green
I felt my youth leaving me
There were things left unsaid
But even more left undone

When I go through a phase I'd turn away the sun
Color makes me feel that I'm the only one
I could never see through so much hatred such injustice
I could never find the hue of true love full of bad blood

I've found it I've found it
Track Name: Stretcher
Mundane - consumed by life
reprise takes him over
dependency thrives

Tumultuous - in finding his way
his heart strings they bellow and
snap with the weight

he is Lost- like a sheep to the wolves
awaiting the wind for a change
like a fool

he's kept Facedown - his lungs fill with earth
Left to drown

Go forth anointed
Condemned by those reprieved
Can't you hear them wailing, of depravity
Grant yourself release

Apathy - leads him to stray
like reaching for a hand that's been put in the grave
