Track Name: Promises
Promises

My darkest moment’s come at last
Everything I’ve loved
Taken from my very hands
In uncertainty
This chance is not my friend
Nor the hand I’ve been dealt
These un-kept promises
They’re tearing down the walls
They’re tearing down the walls

They’re tearing down the walls
In my mind
If everything I know is a dream
Then who is left to blame?
Do I have a hope in hand?
Or am I all alone
In this game of chance

How could I accept defeat when the enemy lies beneath me?
And who could I be defeated by when I stand above a defeated world?
If this is my demise, then the worst part is that it happened before my eyes

My darkest moment’s come at last
Everything I’ve loved
Taken from my very hands
In uncertainty
This chance is not my friend
Nor the hand I’ve been dealt
These un-kept promises
They’re tearing down the walls
They’re tearing down the walls

It is this bitter sense in the back of my mind that will save me.

And I hate the way that, I don’t, I don’t hate you
Even though you love my un-kept promises

You love my un-kept promises
Promises

The sentiment of realisation is at hand
I’ve conformed to my weakness
This burning monument is all I hold in my hands.

If only I could see right through you
I would know that I’m better than this


But how could I accept defeat when the enemy lies beneath me?
And who could I be defeated by when I stand above a defeated world?
Track Name: Inhibitions (feat. Joseph Keating)
Inhibitions

Who am I to you?
What does my presence even mean?
Such an intimate disconnection.
What was I supposed to believe?
Deep within your ignorance,
You found self-indulgence.

Every act just a shallow gesture,
That reflects your selfish nature.
Were your actions a sign of affection?
Or was my flesh just a distorted reflection?

Where is your integrity?
Step up and be who you were meant to be.
Where is your integrity?
Step up and be who you were meant to be.

But now it only feeds your false superiority.

It’s time to open up your eyes and see.
If only the mirror could show what really lies within…
Then you would have acted differently.
You might have seen this coming.

And every night when the cities sleep;
The tide returns to sea.
I’ll lay alone but I’ll smile, as I know,
That you’ll never again; you’ll never see me.

And every night when the cities sleep;
The tide returns to sea.
I’ll lay alone, but I’ll smile, as I know,
That you’ll never again see me.

You said you weren’t warned,
But don’t play the oblivious game.
Cause right from the start,
I fought for you.
I fought the whole way through.
Who is your puppet now?
And are they hollow vessels like everyone else you have played?

Will you ever realise your inhibitions lie elsewhere, so far from you.
Wake up from your deceit, step into the truth.

Where is your integrity?
Step up and be who you were meant to be.
Track Name: Key To Consolation
Key to Consolation

Dear brother I must ask you if you fully comprehend
The world you take for granted?
Are you aware that all you do in life is condescend
The minority?

Just open your eyes and they’ll truly please your minds’ aestheticism

But welcome to a world where the kind are restless
And the unloving lives effortless

Our eyes are the key to infinity
But we remain indefinitely small
Cause we’re incarcerated in mental slavery

Cause we’re all incarcerated in mental slavery

When you finally let your afflictions escape
Just let go of your anger, the pointless hate

I give you the key to consolation
A beautiful mind
Then be one step closer to saving mankind
Let a consolation take over your mind
Take a step in favor of mankind

But welcome to a world where the kind are restless
And the unloving lives effortless

Our eyes are the key to infinity
But we remain indefinitely small
Cause we’re incarcerated in mental slavery.

No life’s worth more than any other
No sister or brother
But who you call your brother stands for nothing

Wake up and see that we’re relentless
The thread of hope is slipping; it’s the essence of failing
Could our humanity tolerate the affliction?
How can we wake up?

When all we do is watch the world go by
We talk and talk, but forget to walk
And so our plea is left to echo in the wind
And no matter what we say, our actions get left behind

But fear makes us feel our humanity

And it is only our humanity that can deliver us
Track Name: Old Beginnings/New Endings (feat. Max Van Heusden)
Old Beginnings/New Endings

I think if you live life without colour, people will influence you one way or another
I used to be like that, but not anymore

How was I allowed to have my own perspectives
When I felt the whole world keeping their close eyes on me?
With one false move and the wolves come running

I defined my world in black and white

How does one balance all of these ambiguous feelings?
In fear of losing your place amongst others

I defined my world in black and white

Isn’t it funny how day by day, nothing changes
But when you look back, everything’s different

It’s kind of messed up isn’t it that I spent my whole life trying to fit in

There’s one reason, one explanation
I defined my world in black and white
Was I dreaming, or was I drowning.
I defined my world in black and white

When I’d rather die my own way, than live yours

I won’t let your noise drown out my inner voice
I won’t let your noise drown out my inner voice

I will not define my world in black and white,
Cause there’s always so much hiding amongst the grey

Now I’m allowed to have my own perspective
Cause I don’t care that the world keeps their close eyes on me
One false move the wolves remain at bay

Nobody can turn back and start a new beginning,
It’ll always be another chapter in the past
But you can move on, you’re your own creation
So create a new ending and just turn the page

I tried to define my world in black and white
when there's always so much hiding amongst the grey
I'm my own creation so I'll create new endings and turn the page.

I tried to define my world in black and white
But there's always so much hiding amongst the grey
I'm my own creation so I'll create new endings and turn the page.
Track Name: Dead Space
Dead Space

This abomination has the upper hand
There is no escape; there is no place to hide
This place, this place
What is this undead race?

And why has no rescue come for me?
I’m stranded, I’m lost here I can’t believe
That I’ll never again see the light of day

Can anyone here me? I’m all alone

Surrounded by the empty, and so far from home.
I hate this place, but I think it’s starting to feel like home

This universe is my life’s embrace
I see you on earth; can you see me in space?

My sweat runs cold down my head
There’s blood that covers my hands
Would you open your arms
And welcome me back home?

I’m trapped inside this uncertainty
I need something to reassure me
I’m trapped inside this uncertainty
I need something; I need to get out;

Here in dead space

Can anyone hear me? I’m all alone
Surrounded by the empty and so far from home
This universe is my life’s embrace
If I see you on earth, can you see me in space?

Life is what we crave
Oh hope I beg you please don’t fade away

Please won’t someone set me free?
I ‘ve still got a life in me
Please my soul I pray you cleanse
Please make me whole again
