Track Name: Eaves Deli
I fit to crack the porcelain in this cell
To lift the nails and hollow a path out
The blood that stains the stones a reminder
This is the recall of our fatal flaw
We said we'd never be here again promised in vain
Another lie from the serpent's tongue
Asphyxiated these words come undone

Let go there is no hope
I've got a mind to let myself roam
Feel my skin so close
Torn from hands that we'd once known

Draw me in
Wear my mask can you convince me to hide this track
My essence is
Drifting further from intention a lost direction
When will it
Find its mark the pieces of a shattered key
Forgotten fit
Scratching at blood rusted grooves
Please let me in

Let go there is no hope
I've got a mind to let myself roam
Feel my skin so close
Torn from hands that we'd once known

I've been waiting at your door
Won't you let me in the room
I've been waiting at your door
Let me in

Let go there is no hope
I've got a mind to let myself roam
Feel my skin so close
Torn from hands that we'd once known
Track Name: Prototype
My eyes
Catch fire
Tonight
I fly

Flashing lights slide all around me
The pulses feed the sway
Press my chest as I breathe
Wait for the air to take me away

Such sweet
Desire
Release
Is wild

Flashing lights slide all around me
The pulses feed the sway
Press my chest as I breathe
Wait for the air to take me away

Aiming for your guiding light but darkness blocks the way
Fight to keep trajectory with just another taste
Everything dissolves amongst the water within me
Each one made to quicken pace of ever flowing streams

Flashing lights slide all around me
The pulses feed the sway
Press my chest as I breathe
Wait for the air to take me away
Track Name: Cellar Door
Split the sky reveal the artifact
Woke this morning on a bed of grass
No recollection due to this prescribed protection
The duality apparent as a dream

Wake up
Come closer
Good to see I'm well received
Project the numbers on the walls of my skull
So that the ever pressing end is all I see

Your muffled words ring out inside my head
Tear me from my sleep
This is meant to be
As the tons of steel come crashing in
Usher in a world you've yet to see

Belief eludes me for the gift that I've received
Impossibilities to bring it to its knees
Death will walk beside me while the living all abide
The unacknowledged will to bend and bleed

These pages seem to curb the ambiguity
The first receiver holds the key
If I could only clarify if greying hair could shed some light
I'd understand the purpose of these things

Whispers on her breath
Sink into the skin
Sweat beads up again
One revolution
The receiver is the bridge
Death will drag the rest

She was color amongst the mundane
He lit the path so I could see
Eye for her life and the pieces fall into place
Behold the picture as it was meant to be seen

Sun rises
Time elapsed
I'm hysteric with a new conceived belief
I've seen the fingers pulling strings behind the curtains
Leaving only one awake to truly see


Whispers on her breath
Sink into the skin
Sweat beads up again
One revolution
The receiver is the bridge
Death will drag the rest
Whispers on her breath
Seeping through my pores
Rooting in my soul
Every living creature dies alone

One revolution
The receiver is the bridge
Death will drag the rest
Whispers on her breath
Seeping in my pores
Rooting in my soul
Every living creature dies alone

Where the fuck am I
What has become of this place
Exactly what's been happening the past 28 days
Who brought me to this point
Gave me the trigger to my fate
When did this become the plan
The cellar door becomes the way

Now that I've become the chosen one
No mind tricks played on me
Fill the cavern of this conduit the strength takes over me
Rip these workers from my chest
Do it all for their sake
Reset the clock I set in place before the tail becomes the snake
Track Name: Plant The Seed
Plant the seed and cultivate
Pesticide you mutate
Luxury to rise above in time
Graves of waste

Break the line defect the herd (don't wait for them)
Ignorant to just what we deserve ( can't comprehend can't understand)

Find no peace within these city streets
All I need is grass under my feet
Underneath of my bare feet

Find no peace within these city streets
All we need is grass under our feet
Underneath of our bare feet
Navigating rivers of concrete
Far beyond so far beyond me
Its not what we need
Its just not what we need
Track Name: Golgotha
Casted shadows take the plain to quench stricken impurity
Some relief from the crashing waves raining down from the sky
Silhouette in the distance of a maimed tree unyielding and pendulous
Tattered hands breach the black pull me in from the back of my mind

You laid my path out of dust and bones
I've shifted through the dirt and through the snow
Surpassing even the event horizon
when did I forget that all things grow

Feeling my palms burn but now pain escapes me
Darkness seeps as a viscous oil coming over my eyes
The sun has set on an empty vessel to disconnect
Join the others this is a place death is sure to find
Leatherbound eyelids woven spine of deceit
Sifting through the contents for clarity
System of lies so contrived sewn at the seam
Turn the page find there's nothing to be seen

You laid my path out of dust and bones
I've shifted through the dirt and through the snow
Surpassing even the event horizon
when did I forget that all things grow

Ascension deception the weight of acceptance I feel tearing at my insides
Repeating omissions the pages were scripted veracity fading in time

You laid my path out of dust and bones
I've shifted through the dirt and through the snow
Surpassing even the event horizon
when did I forget that all things grow

I close my eyes

The fate of a martyr is so undeserved
