Track Name: Ascension
So much that's unknown
Matched with so much that's unfair
They say to be ready for the harvest
Even when there's nothing there

Well I'm surrounded with all this doom
Centuries of just despair
It's the odd man in the room
Who can breathe happy in this air
And there's too few...

SO!
Claw your way out of this
TOMB
Find a way to vault this
GLOOM
Push your way and make some
ROOM
Don't be sold on our
DOOM.

Don't be sold on all the many claims they already know the shape of things to come.
It's the modern rape of psyche,
And the battering of souls into ruin

We're so bereft and cold
With a snide judgemental stare
It's changed from a steady rain to tempest
While we snore or just compare

We're surrounded with all this doom
Centuries of just despair
It's the odd man in the room
Who can breathe happy in this air
And there's too few...
Track Name: Crash
The many flops that bleed the heart to empty,
but what's it's really for?
The lies that deceive us exempt me
from leaving broke and sore

And lying in the depths of dementia of a very mental war
Too many times. the many debts, they find you
Unsure, unsteady, thinking...

So what's it really for
when our minds can surely beat us?
So what's it really for
when even lies don't believe us?
So what's it really for
when our hearts just deceive us?
So what's it really for?
On this dying ship that sinking yet we're wanting more!

The many times I've stood here thinking
I can't get through the door
The cries of the afflicted won't tempt me
to caring anymore

And lying in the depths of emotion of a very personal war
Too many times, the many debts, they find you
Unsure, unsteady, thinking...
Track Name: Zero Crux
Many times, a million faces
Many times, now cover in dust
Valiant times, but where are their traces
Petty crimes, and zero bucks

Now, I'm coming on
To a city with a brand new face
While I'm just getting old
I'm coming on, I'm coming on
With those old feelings that we can't replace
While time just moves along
I'm coming on

I'm many parts, of many places
Many miles, but only there just
Passing by, but my oasis
Idles by with zero fucks

Tow the line with happy faces
Tow the line till we're all dust
Get in line and man your stations
Getting by without getting pushed around

So many sad familiar places
Tearing down for skyward thrust
Walking by, a smile replaces
I had mine, at my zero crux
Track Name: Forward Home
This silence, it grips me and roams
Through out my home
Defiantly strips me and flows
About like doom

Oh how quickly we slip down the roads
That lead us to ruin, trapped and alone
To embark on a quest means you won't
Dwell on the bones that break while you go
If it defeats me I'll come back and know
What I will face and which way to go
Till I've past every trap, I will roam

Forward and home / We're not alone
Forward and home / We're all trapped on this stone
Forward and home / So keep to the road
Forward and home / Till the light can be shone
Forward and home

So pliant, I keep to the gloam
And track my growth
Through the arms of defeat I will coast
And keep my oath

Will I keep to the streets that I know
Will lead me past fate, or keep me from home?
To embark on a quest means I won't
Dwell on the bones that break while I go
If it defeats me I'll come back and know
What I will face and which way to go
Till I've past every trap, I will roam
Track Name: Just Ignore
I've been trying to focus
Trying to come around
See through the hocus pocus
Trying to live both safe and sound
Another boring and deluded soul
Just trying to live in the light
While ignoring that dark and the cold

Grasping out for something.
Trying to fend my doubt
So petty and so broken
Trying to make my way around
All the poor and the defeated souls
Just ignore the unsightly
Ignore all the world as it falls (2x)

And In bliss we'll just move on
Me with petty dreams and songs
Never wondering how we sleep at night
Whether wrong or right
Is it right to fight these dreams of flight?

Just ignore the unsightly
Ignore all the world as it falls (2x)

Just ignore - When we're right
Just ignore - Our blurry sight
Just ignore - While we fight
Just ignore - Might is right
Just ignore - what's in sight
Just ignore - why we fight
Just ignore!
Track Name: The Dying Cold
I last checked, Iwas so much older
The winds now slow my stride
I'm sick of glancing over shoulders
I need somewhere to hide
From weather cold, extreme, and sober
Baring from all sides
Where love is warm, away from harm
Not there with bitter pride

The lights ahead seem very dim from here
Yeah, the light ahead seem way too far
The lights ahead don't brighten any sense
The lights just pierce like broken shards

I can't trust moments, I can't trust movements
I just trust where we are
I can't trust moments, I can't trust movements
I need somewhere that's safe
I can't trust moments, I can't trust movements
I just trust who we are
I can't trust moments, I can't trust movements
When life don't make no sense you're all I want

Dusty, cracked, no plans well thought out
But nothing stems the tide
A vicious savage is what I'm thought of
The stories they've supplied
We're battered, torn, a battle fought out
With no one on our side
With threads of yarn to keep us warm
From dying cold outside
