Track Name: Transitions I - Realisation
We try to separate
Ourselves from what we’ve made
We live an honest life
We can’t go back in time

We try to justify
Our self-entrapping style
We’re born with boundless minds
We feel the stress

(To my grave)

So lie through your teeth
And lead me direct to my grave
Lie like you mean it

(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Work ’til you die
(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Waste your whole life

Translucent lies
Pollute our minds
With ceilings so low
Where’s the reason to fly?

So lie through your teeth
And lead me direct to my grave

(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Work ’til you die
(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Waste your whole life
And I know that greed’s insatiable
It drives them every day
But true wealth is unobtainable
If you choose to live this way

I’ll never take this from you
I’ll never choose for life to end
I’ll never take this from you
I’ll never choose for life to end

I’ve seen my life flash through my mind
‘Fore I was 21 years old
I’ve seen it all through my father’s eyes
I caught a glimpse of his lonely world
And I’m not saying that every path is right
But I wish we’d keep each to their own
Religion, finances, decisions, romances
How vapid and hollow
How trite, how mis-sold

But who the hell are we to save them from themselves?

(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Work ’til you die
(Where in the world did they get that idea?)
Waste your whole life
And I know that greed’s insatiable
It drives them every day
But true wealth is unobtainable
If you choose to live this way
Track Name: Sane
A promise to uphold
Your actions feel controlled
When loyalty’s rewarded
What’s the point in being bold

You’re nothing but your word
Your own desires unheard
This self-inflicted obligation
Moulds you with the herd

This self-inflicted creation
(It calls your name)

This kind of life won’t keep you sane
Can we fix this world?

So plagued by constant debt
A shell, a silhouette
Resigned to find excitement
From some digital connect

The apple of your eye
Your way to justify
A life without a purpose or a meaning

Scream I’m not gonna take this anymore
I’m not gonna take this anymore

These meaningless obligations
(They call your name)

This kind of life won’t keep you sane
Can we fix this world?

Won’t keep you sane
Can we fix this world?

So if this is your only try
Would you be unique
Or will these burdens make you feel small?

And if you had to say goodbye
To that familiar face
Do you believe they’d love you at all?
Love you at all

Well it’s time to break these chains
Well it’s time to break these chains

This kind of life won’t keep you sane
Can we fix this world?
Track Name: Anchored
From source to sandy shore
This river runs its course
With a path of least resistance
It’s unstoppable

Washed up along the coast
My doubts won’t let me float
No path lain out before me
I’m suffering

As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored in the ocean
As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored to the ocean floor

My world proceeds to turn
My skin begins to burn
This static sense of purpose
Is consuming me

Revive my fading dreams
Turn every sail to wind
Discard morose inflictions
The scars marking me

As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored in the ocean
As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored to the ocean floor

Your words sound
In deaf ears
I don’t want to hear you as I grow
So I won’t be silent anymore

So take back
Those fake tears
When did you ever care at all?
I won’t be silent anymore

As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored in the ocean
As the waves wash over me I’ll know
The tides won’t bring me closer
If I stay stubborn anchored to the ocean floor

Anchored to the ocean floor
Anchored to the ocean floor
Track Name: Drifting
(I feel you drifting away) (x2)

One step too far
I’m in suffering
So close to giving in oh

So tell me I’m wrong
Tell me I’m wrong

You’ll never know
What you mean to me
Or what we could have been oh

My weakness prolonged
Weakness prolonged

We sell our souls to the highest bid
And we encounter more thieves than we know
We sell our souls to the highest bid

I feel you drifting away
(These walls are only built up by ourselves)
Drifting away
(My heart rate set to rise then fall to hell)

One more attempt
At this purgery
This sense of urgency oh

This cleansing of mine
Cleansing my mind

One final step
Try to turn away
Try to turn away oh

Or run back to fight
To seize and ignite

We sell our souls to the highest bid
And we encounter more thieves than we know
We sell our souls to the highest bid

I feel you drifting away
(These walls are only built up by ourselves)
Drifting away
(My heart rate set to rise then fall to hell)

(This song’s for you) (x2)

We sell our souls to the highest bid
And we encounter more thieves than we know
We sell our souls to the highest bid

I feel you drifting away
(These walls are only built up by ourselves)
Drifting away
(My heart rate set to rise then fall to hell)

(This song’s for you)
Track Name: World of Ashes
Do you ever feel
The most rotten of feelings?
As you drift away your lifetime
Slow and circumspect

Never undermine
The weakness we draw on
As we force ourselves to
Never question what comes next

For the pain we feel now
And all that’s to come
Denial won’t keep you safe
This world of ashes can’t survive

Now the Earth boils
Fuming from your contempt
As the waves loom angry
Growing larger on the sky

But it’s not too late
To pin our eyes open
Privilege and desolation
Walking side by side

For the pain we feel now
And all that’s to come
Denial won’t keep you safe
For the life that you stole
Is yours now to earn
Your riches won’t keep you safe
On the fall of this world
You sat vapid cold
Your ignorance keeps you chained
This world of ashes can’t survive

(Can’t take this back)

The undeniable change
The crippling droughts
It’s now

No shield for such sights
The arctic ice melts
This time

With famine abound
But hope to be found
Can you find it?

As dark days draw in
As humankind dies
Will you save it?

For the pain we feel now
And all that’s to come
Denial won’t keep you safe
For the life that you stole
Is yours now to earn
Your riches won’t keep you safe
On the fall of this world
You sat vapid cold
Your ignorance keeps you chained
Our world of ashes can’t survive

(Can’t take this back)

Our world will fall before your eyes
Track Name: Razor's Edge
These days
Hurt more than they ever did
With no hope
Nothing left to inspire this

And these chains
They shackle to broken ground
But this way
Seems so closed off this time around

My life
Summarised into vacant words
Is all I hear
Against a background of sufferance

And I’m torn
Between the boy and the man in me
And I’ve learned
The middle ground is just apathy

On this razor’s edge (x2)
And I won’t lose sight
Not one more time
I know my dreams
They’ll rule my life
On this razor’s edge (x2)

One chance
To escape from the tunnel’s eye
As it chokes
Making pinholes of distant lights

And I’m scared
Of the branch that I yearn to ascend
But I know
That I’ll never grow to love the stem

On this razor’s edge (x2)
And I won’t lose sight
Not one more time
I know my dreams
They’ll rule my life
On this razor’s edge (x2)

Life should not be a series of things that you do because they all aim directly at one ultimate goal. No, life should be a series of things that you do at that time in your life, at that moment, because you enjoy them. It’s never too late to decide who you want to be.

And I won’t lose sight
Not one more time
I know my dreams
They’ll rule my life
On this razor’s edge (x2)

I won’t lose sight
Not one more time
I know my dreams
They’ll rule my life
On this razor’s edge (x2)
Track Name: Worth Fighting For
Fear from nowhere
Your fickle heart it smothers
Mental warfare
Your power like no other
End this nightmare
These iron bars confine me
And I can’t seem to shake this sinking feeling

So I’ll write this on my chest
And bare it all for the world to see
Though my head knows that it knows best
I’ll let my heart pull the strings for me
(Just admit you’re mine)
Conclude your internal war
(Tell me true this time)
Am I not worth fighting for?

Fear from nowhere
This undefined horizon
Mental warfare
Injected with this bleakness
End this nightmare
Don’t dare to say you love me
‘Cos I can’t seem to shake this sinking feeling

So I’ll write this on my chest
And bare it all for the world to see
Though my head knows that it knows best
I’ll let my heart pull the strings for me
(Just admit you’re mine)
Conclude your internal war
(Tell me true this time)
Am I not worth fighting for?

You fabricate your aims
You clean stains from your name
You do this for yourself

You do this for yourself

You fabricate your aims
You clean stains from your name
You do this for yourself

So I’ll make this choice
I’ll make this end

So I’ll write this on my chest
And bare it all for the world to see
Though my head knows that it knows best
I’ll let my heart pull the strings for me
(Just admit you’re mine)
Conclude your internal war
(Tell me true this time)
Am I not worth fighting for?

So I’ll write this on my chest
And bare it all for the world to see
Though my head knows that it knows best
I’ll let my heart pull the strings for me
(Just admit you’re mine)
Conclude your internal war
(Tell me true this time)
You’re not what I’m fighting for
Track Name: This Crushing Fear
No more words
We’re not quite dead yet
But you’ve lost grip
On all your common sense
So I’ll sit in my room
And try to drink this pain away

Heavy thoughts
Conspire to plague my mind
And I can only try
To count the times
That I’ve been happy just to know
I’ve kept you safe

‘Cos you are the wind that whispers slowly
Drifting through my swollen lungs
You are the itch that creeps it’s way
To taste like poison on my tongue

Shadows fade but still your shiver
Filters softly down my spine
Like a villain starring in this
Mental relapse pantomime

So I’ll stay right here alone
And you’ll live your life like you’ve got
Nothing left to give

(To live this crushing fear alone)
(To live my life out here alone)

Cut the ties
I’m not justifying
Pain we’ve caused
Without empathising
Passion fled
And only anger fills its place

Speaking falsely
Just to pacify me
Written words
Must come and neutralise me
Pen and paper
And a hold on my own space

So I’ll stay right here alone
And you’ll live your life like you’ve got
Nothing left to give
And though the time will help you through
I know I’m better off than you
To live this crushing fear alone

So let’s get this story straight right now
I never wanted to be turning this pen on you
We’ll escape to better days somehow
But I’m wide awake searching in desperation

So I’ll stay right here alone
And you’ll live your life like you’ve got
Nothing left to give
And though the time will help you through
I know I’m better off than you
To live this crushing fear alone

So I’ll stay right here alone
And you’ll live your life like you’ve got
Nothing left to give
And though the time will help you through
I know I’m better off than you
To live this crushing fear alone

To live my life out here alone
Track Name: Colder
I’m gonna find you
When there’s nowhere left to keep him
The sour taste of love
Fades slowly when you’re sleeping

Now here’s the question
Is it you or is it me babe?
That drove the wedge into
The paradise we’re keeping

Oh, well imagine
That it’s me who knows
Where you’ve been sleeping

Can you fathom
The consequences
Of selfish reaping

This time

Don’t try and justify the cause
You seem much colder now
Than you have done before
And I can feel this weight
Already breaking all my bones
I feel much colder now
Than I have done before
Than I have done before

Is it so obvious
There’s no-one here to help you
No more regrets ‘cos child
The Lord ain’t gonna save you

Is your perception that to lie
Is an attribute
To peel away my skin
And tinker with my heart true

Oh, well imagine
That it’s me who knows
The tricks that we suffer

Can you fathom
The pain of being
Betrayed by a lover

This time

Don’t try and justify the cause
You seem much colder now
Than you have done before
And I can feel this weight
Already breaking all my bones
I feel much colder now
Than I have done before
Than I have done before

It’s out of the question
It’s out of control
‘Cos you knew it was you
Who could make me feel whole

Don’t try to protest it
Don’t try and break through
‘Cos I’m better than this now
I’m better than you

Don’t try and justify the cause
You seem much colder now
Than you have done before
And I can feel this weight
Already breaking all my bones
I feel much colder now
Than I have done before
Than I have done before
Track Name: To the Wolves
A steely resolve
And a promise to bear
But you don’t
No you don’t even care

Create your façade
Help me feel like I’m safe
Blur my hindsight
And soothe all my scars

A genuine taste
Leaves me craving for more
Such a comfort
To trust who you are

Light the flame
Fill my veins
Lead me to despair

Lie through life
Kill to thrive
Lead me to despair

So throw me to the wolves
And let me die

A morbid reveal
My surrender so cold
Your intent
Like a spear through my bones

A twisted design
But no different from most
This decay
It pervades
Every weakling it finds
Two faces for every mind

Light the flame
Fill my veins
Lead me to despair

Lie through life
Kill to thrive
Lead me to despair

So throw me to the wolves
And let me die

Light the flame
Fill my veins
Lead me to despair

Lie through life
Kill to thrive
Lead me to despair

So throw me to the wolves
And let me die
Track Name: Transitions II - Resolution
A sycophantic murmur
A view to chasing lies
To follow template footsteps
To lead a vacant life

This solitary struggle
I fear it breaks my bones
To overcome this anguish
To venture far from home

I just tried to chase my dreams

I won’t give up my fight
‘Cos I’ve fire in my eyes
I’d longed for something more
‘Fore I was 21 years old
This pain is yours to take
No more than harrowing mistakes
I’d longed for something more
‘Fore I was 21 years old
So don’t tell me this is life

Another ruthless onslaught
Another minion won
To serve a failing system

So I intend on keeping
One eye open
And one eye shut
I’ll keep your message on my lips
So I won’t taste it on my tongue

I won’t give up my fight
‘Cos I’ve fire in my eyes
I’d longed for something more
‘Fore I was 21 years old
This pain is yours to take
No more than harrowing mistakes
I’d longed for something more
‘Fore I was 21 years old
So don’t tell me this is life

I tried to find
A way to see
The person I
Was meant to be

These words they fall
On fragile scars
And only reinforce the marks

I won’t give up my fight
‘Cos I’ve fire in my eyes
I’d longed for something more
‘Fore I was 21 years old
This pain is yours to take
No more than harrowing mistakes
I’ve longed for something more
Since I was 21 years old
So don’t tell me this is life

So keeping
One eye open
And one eye shut
I’ll keep your message on my lips
So I won’t taste it on my tongue
