Track Name: Repose
There I go,
Fucking things up like I always will
Gave you my heart and you
Gave me a chance and it
Left me still
The best of intentions could
Never release me from
All my pain
Storm is growing so
Now I am waiting to
Stand in the rain

There I go,
Fucking things up like I always do
What did I tell you to push you away was it
Just too true?
You said that you wanted to
Know how I felt but it
Came too late
Left with these memories, I'm
Digging my grave and I
Can't escape

(I'm not like you,
I can't just fucking escape
Can't just run away when things get too intense
See, I'm an all-in kind of person,
And when you make me fall,
Fall in love like that?
I can't just fucking run away,
I can't just fucking run away...)
Track Name: A Beautiful Lie, Pt. I: Memory
Sometimes I wake from
The middle of sleep and I
Remember your face
I gently weep

Memory won't leave me be,
Your beauty is haunting me
My past I let
My secrets keep

Tell me, do you think of me?
Do you cherish my memory?
Does it feel so good to leave me
In the dust?
It's easier to just be free
Than to live with believing me
Sometimes it's hard
To do the things we must

Memory won't leave me be,
Your beauty is haunting me
Wish I could wake from
What's left of my dreams

It's easier to just be free
Than to live with believing me
Sometimes the light will
Burn as it gleams

An island in seas of flame,
I drown as I call your name
Thankful for all the ways you
Made me burn

Memories of joy remain,
I'll never be the same
Memory, I love the pain
You made me learn
Track Name: Respite
Take my heart!
Take my dreams!
Take me where I'm meant to be!
It's too late to give up now!
Take my hand, I'll show you how!

Take my heart!
Take my dreams!
Take me where I'm meant to be!
It's too late to give up now!
Take my hand, I'll show you how!

But turn your head
For a second
You find your dreams can be elusive
Memory fades,
So protect it
Before it slips away

It shines so bright
On the surface
The flame is only so conducive
So take what you may,
In the moment
Night will always swallow day!
Track Name: Remorse
Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed

Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed

I'll take your heart!
I'll take your dreams!
I'll take everything with a swift release
Then I'll hush your screams

Love is pain,
A beautiful lie
Covered in ash from the flames you burn
Until the day you die

I'll take your heart!
I'll take your dreams!
I'll take everything with a swift release
Then I'll hush your screams

Love is pain,
A beautiful lie
Covered in ash from the flames you burn
Until the day you die

I'll take your heart!
I'll take your dreams!
I'll take everything with a swift release
Then I'll hush your screams

Love is pain,
A beautiful lie
Covered in ash from the flames you burn
Until the day you die

I'll take your heart!
I'll take your dreams!
I'll take everything with a swift release
Then I'll hush your screams

Love is pain,
A beautiful lie
Covered in ash from the flames you burn
Until the day you die

I'll take your heart!
I'll take your dreams!
I'll take everything with a swift release
Then I'll hush your screams

Love is pain,
A beautiful lie
Covered in ash from the flames you burn
Until the day you die

Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed

Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed

Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed

Night will always swallow day,
Turn for a second and look away
The life you planned is already dead
When your lover is sleeping
In your best friend's bed
Track Name: A Beautiful Lie, Pt. II: Paralyzed
Tell me where the light will take you
Tunnel vision blocks the roads I've known
Wreckage stems in all directions
Love exhumes from seeds I've sewn

Butterflies were born in dreams
That danced inside your eyes
Your promises were flights of fate
Words that left me paralyzed

Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
Regret will only leave me paralyzed
Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise,
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
A broken heart won't leave me paralyzed

If I knew how many nights would hold me
Memory would fall from grace
Memory from all misfortune
Wouldn't stoke this fears replaced

Ecstasy was forged in fires
Found inside our eyes
Our promises were fevered flames,
A wish that left us hypnotized

Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
Regret will only leave me paralyzed
Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise,
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
A broken heart won't leave me paralyzed

Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
Regret will only leave me paralyzed
Energy is flowing in me harder,
The sun still sets in paradise,
Dreams that haunt the dead will break the martyr,
A broken heart won't leave me paralyzed
Track Name: Repression
Far away
From my home
Lightning came
Struck my core

Fear and shame
All I've known
Came to me
On silent shores

Enter rain,
Sleet and snow
The storm inside,
I can't ignore

Begged for peace,
Life said "no..."
A loveless heart,
Forevermore

Into the storm I departed,
With eyes towards the venomous sea
In glorious pain I have weathered this burden,
With anguish and reverence for all we could be
Into my memories I venture,
To find the release from my dreams
I'll seek out the truth in the days yet to come
In hopes that this pain is much more than it seems (x2)

Still I claim
The lights divine
Waging war
Inside my mind
In time I will
Forget your name
And take my place
In sacred flame
Still in dreams
I see the way
To unfold
In darkest day
Repression stings on silent shores
I will not mourn you
Anymore... (x2)
Track Name: A Painful Truth, Pt. I: The Time It Takes To Smoke A Cigarette Is Enough Time To Forget
As I sit here alone on this bedroom floor
I implore
I'll become far greater than you could ever ignore
Though your promises of forever
Were lies from the start
I'll build a thousand bridges
To cross the holes in your heart
I've fought so many battles
And faced a hell's worth of challenge
I've never met an angel
Or demon I couldn't manage
I am not alone, you see, I've more friends than I can count
It's not about the people you're with or without
For I am in love with beauty, honor and reliance
And through all the broken truths I build
Towers in defiance
My solitude doesn't mean that I'm
Depressed, deceived, or depraved
And just because I'm lost
Doesn't mean I can't be saved
I see a world of beauty in the one that you left behind
And there's a universe worth of creation
In the corners of my mind
My instruments are my lovers,
And this music is my wife
For she's carried me through the good the bad
The paradise and the strife
but I'll create so many things
You'll wish you'd never ran away
And from the valleys to the mountains
You will hear me say
I will make mockeries of my goals
And make memories through my pursuits
And while I'm at it
I'll acomplish every single goal of yours too
You will be my muse but not in the sense
That I do it for you
But I'll do it to prove that you were a fool to let me go
I'll create so many things that this world will be filled
With reminders of every drop of my blood that you spilled
The world will run red with every beautiful shade
Of crimson love and lust from the heart you stuck with the blade
And don't think that just because you're the subject of this
Poem that you're the villain
You are merely the inspiration for the sorrow th at's filling
Every vein that's in my skin and every inch of my bones
But just because I miss you doesn't mean I'm alone
Passion, beauty, truth all stand by my side
And just because I'm digging a grave doesn't mean that I've died
And just because you're listening doesn't make me the hero
I'm merely counting down every word from a million to zero
Passing the time until my day of shining unfolds
And there's not a single story or song I haven't told
I will tear down the walls that separate heaven from hell
No rest until their residents are under my spell
Earth will become my canvas and the sky will hear my voice
And from every mountain and valley there will be no choice
But to hear the tales of creation that I speak with these words
And from them will spring new forms of life, air trees and birds
When this world becomes mine you will not know release
From the feeling of a hundred thousand nights without sleep
Like the nights where I cried to forget
The pain which you inflicted
By meeting me, greeting me, loving me
Then leaving me stricken
But as I recite the terror of the heart that you hardened
Know that I've found the road and now I'm restarting
Because as I sit here alone on this bedroom floor,
I implore
I'll become far greater than you could ever ignore
Track Name: Release
Now I am awake,
Released from the curse of your mistakes
No longer do I see with weathered eyes
The pain could never leave me paralyzed

I bless the grace with which you made me see
Sorrow is the throne of majesty
A crown of thorns is more than what it seems
It rests upon the brow of those redeemed

Now I see the light
In glory I have flown the pilgrim's flight
Hallowed be the name of those who bleed
In solitude and anguish will be freed

I bless the grace with which you made me learn
The bridges that we build were meant to burn
For fire is the truth that calls the day
And treacheries we weather show the way

Rising through the storm,
Beaten by the wind I take my form
Battered but unbroken like before,
The loss of love has only taught me more

I bless the grace with which you made me see
Hardship is the road to majesty
Lies we're told in youth to make believe
Serve as signs to show we've been deceived

Rising through the flame,
I cannot even seem to place your name
Rising through the deep,
The way you taste? A memory, left in sleep

Keeper of the flame, I found my peace
Hallowed be thy name, my sweet release!
Treacheries I've weathered, pure and true,
From the ashes of the old I'll build the new!

Finally made it,
Finally arrived
Time has now come to decide if I fail or survive

Will I succeed
Where the mighty have failed?
If love was my purpose, will I prevail?

Came with no answers,
Questions unearthed
Could I stoke the furnace in the flame of rebirth?

If nothing but a memory
In the heart I've redeemed,
Could I find the purpose in what's left of my dreams?

Could I find the purpose in what's left of my dreams?

Rise through the storm!
Now you'll find your way!
Swallow your pride and you'll
Break through the day!
Follow your dreams and
Refuse to lay down and obey!

Rise through the deep!
Now you'll find your peace
Wipe off your brow and you'll
Break through the night!
Cast off your burdens and
Learn to accept your release!
Track Name: A Painful Truth, Pt. II: In Death No Shame
On my own,
I carry the flame inside
Steel and stone,
Forged in honor all that's died
Flesh and bone,
A body of iron's what remains
All I've known
Consecrates this blessed pain

Now approach
The day you stand
In sacred flames
The fear you face...
Sinners rise,
Saints will fall
Through the pain
Take your place!

Hear my voice,
Know my name!
When morning comes,
In death no shame!

Bless this pain,
Gave me strength to regain my sight
Bring the rain,
Washed away the blinding light
My domain
The whole of Heaven, Earth, and Sea
My refrain:
Honor the pure and fiery free!

Now approach
The day you stand
In sacred flames
The fear you face...
Sinners rise,
Saints will fall
Through the pain
Take your place!

Take my place
In sacred flame!
When I call
This fire untamed!
Hear my voice,
Know my name,
When morning comes,
In death no shame

Hear my voice,
Know my name!
When morning comes,
In death no shame!

Hear my voice,
Know my name!
When morning comes,
In death no shame!

Take my place
In sacred flame!
When I call
This fire untamed!
Hear my voice,
Know my name,
When morning comes,
In death no shame

Take my place
In sacred flame!
When I call
This fire untamed!
Hear my voice,
Know my name,
When morning comes,
In death no shame!
