Track Name: Beneath The Waves
Look through these eyes
And see just what you fear
You realise
There's no escape here (and now)
You feel like the world's upon you
Constricting every breath you take
And even when hope seems before you
It drifts away

Feel as it falls away
They pull us down
Beneath the waves
And you can feel the world begin to fade
As they pull us down
Pull us beneath the waves

Search for my hand
These murky waters rage
Fight all you can
It's all in vain (these waves)
Take every ounce of strength we harbour
And all of our resolve away (away)
Why do they wish to engulf our lives?
And take even the light of day

Feel as it falls away
They pull us down
Beneath the waves
And you can feel the world begin to fade
As they pull us down
Pull us beneath the waves

Feel as it falls away
They pull us down
Beneath the waves
As we make our descent
We reach above
To save ourselves
And we will bring anything down below
If it spares us pain (spares us pain)
And this is pain you soon will surely know
As we pull you down
Pull you beneath the waves
Track Name: Delusions
We know you can't understand
Just quite how far this goes
But we've come too far
To let you take this away
Yet you keep trying to hold
Onto something you don't own
And this can only end one way

It ends this way

And even as you beat us down
And each one of us falls
The strength of your disdain just feeds our fury
(You will not stop us all)
And as you cling on desperately
And see the hate that you have made
You remain blind to all that we're enduring
Know you will fall

You instilled fear in us all
Fashioned your own pedestal
And now you see it's
Such a long way down

A long way down

And even as you beat us down
And each one of us falls
The strength of your disdain just feeds our fury
(You will not stop us all)
And as you cling on desperately
And see the hate that you have made
You remain blind to all that we're enduring

And you will see just what it means to be
Taken away from all you love
The winds have changed, you fight against them now
It will not stop for you
Delusions can't help you now

And even as you beat us down
And each one of us falls
The strength of your disdain just feeds our fury
(You will not stop us all)
And as your grip begins to fade
You feel the hate that you have made
You will feel what we all have been enduring

This fear you feel we call reality
Know you will fall
Know you will fall
Know you will
Track Name: Attrition
The show is done
The war's been won
Yet victory I do not feel
There on display
For all to see
Without a shred of dignity

This place feels so cold

I'll walk away
You'll walk away
Confine it to our minds
It will remain there to punish us
We'll walk away
There's nothing to say
Just turn
And walk
There's no time for second thoughts it's too late for them now

These people stare
They know what's there
Their eyes crawl through my skin and search for you
This feeling draws them ever closer to us
The walls that we create crumble into dust
Exposing weakness, doubt and second guesses
We can't escape, we can't escape

I'll walk away
You'll walk away
Confine it to our minds
It will remain there to punish us
We'll walk away
There's nothing to say
Just turn
And walk
There's no time for second thoughts it's too late for them now

They, they can't know what we've done
It will all come undone
They could not understand the truth

Leave, leave this burden of doubt
They won't figure us out
We will transcend these useless feelings

Take, take to flight with me now
And as they
Watch us

I'll walk away
You'll walk away
I'll walk away
We'll walk away
Track Name: Chasing After Time
How this life can weigh you down
My mind it moves so slow
Hard to even wonder how
Maybe I don't want to know
As the sea it meets the sky
The possibilites
A need to stop wondering why
And be taken far away

Looking outwards, we reach into the light (making our own way now)
Don't look back now, just give your all this time (as we fall in further)

Fading sparks is all we are
We're chasing after time
And while we know we won't get far
We dwell and waste this life
Sometimes you need to feel that low
To understand what's real
To hate, to love, to want to know
But above all else to feel

Looking outwards, we reach into the light (making our own way now)
Don't look back now, just give your all this time (as we fall in further)
Times are changing, and colours fading, I'm rearranging, my fate is mine
Taking hold this time
As we turn into the light

Looking outwards, we reach into the light (making our own way now)
Don't look back now, just give your all this time (as we fall in further)
Times are changing, and colours fading, I'm rearranging, my fate is mine
Taking hold this time
As we turn into the light
Track Name: Take The Beaten Path
Identify the only things that ever mattered to suit your needs
The creaking gate blown by the wind is of no consequence
Look to the sky (it's turning grey)
Look in my eyes (then look away)
Pull your collar up, get on your way

Those hopes and dreams, so far away
From where you were only yesterday
And who or what could possibly be in your way?
And in the sky (that same old grey)
Glint in your eye (for a new day)
So much lies ahead, oh who could say?

Watching you fall away
So content

So there he sits staring far away
But all that he can see is grey
And he knows nothing else will cross his path today
Looks to the sky (what could he say?)
He turns around (back to the grey)
Pulls his collar up, and on his way

Watching you fall away
So content

So find a way
To disappear 'cos in the end
You'll always take the beaten path
No matter who stands in your way

I still see you fall away
So content

So find a way
To disappear 'cos in the end
You'll always take the beaten path
No matter who stands in your way

Find a way
Disappear
Take the beaten path
No one's here
Track Name: This Is What We Built
To see it collapse, feels like it's falling on me
The dust it settles on those moments
Standing up there, surveying your work triumphantly
Absence of regret chills me so

Time, so much time
Passes by
Yet still I
Stand and wait

Screaming across the years
A shot fired long ago that rings still in my ears
In my heart
What we built
Fell apart
Chastising, pain rising, still lying, what am I trying to do?
No bridge to rebuild with you

I crawled through rubble, clambering at what I could
Trying to put this back together
Walking away, you could not leave without one last look
Oh please, tell me that's not a smile

Lies, all those lies
Yet still I
Still I tried
Here I lie

Screaming now in my face
Memories, images, you now strive to erase

Watch the flames as they rise
Truth courses through me now, through the fire in your eyes
I now see free of guilt
So now let's take a look, for this is what we built
What we had
And are you
Even sad?
Wash me away, free yourself of me, what was I trying to do?
I burn these bridge with you

Burn
