Track Name: Prologue (A Voice Unheard)
So much for existence
When your existence is a forced shout
Born into a hurricane
Pushed until you burn out
Track Name: Canthus Viewpoints
I really gotta stop picking fights
With the ghosts of my past
While I’m rolling with the punches
I’m not sure how long I’m gonna last

Pour salt on the open wound
Love the ones that hurt you, say

I really gotta stop picking fights
Or I’m gonna regret this
Berating
Every decision brings a vision of what went wrong
Down with rounds to play with
KO’d

These memories haunting me
I’m starting to think it’s my life
Flashing before my eyes
Every man in a hood is carrying a scythe and creeping
In the corner of my eye

I really gotta stop picking fights
Now the spectres are winning
But I’m smiling through the bruises, cuts and blood
Laughing and grinning

Pour salt on the open wound
Love the ones that hurt you, say

We are not gonna let it go

These memories haunting me
I’m starting to think it’s my life
Flashing before my eyes
Every man in a hood is carrying a scythe and creeping
In the corner of my eye
Track Name: Atlas To Atlantis
Found a bottle on the beach
The message inside wasn’t complete
For the time had worn the paper thin
“My reflections not… what it used to be….
I’m broken down,….. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy”

Drank the ink up of the paper
Till the words spilled down my chin
From my lips
They dripped on to my hands into my skin
Felt the rush as the letters tumbled on and on through my veins
To my heart
And on into my brain

Found a bottle on the beach
The message inside wasn’t complete
For the time had worn the paper thin
“My reflections not,…. what it used to be….
I’m broken down,…. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy”

The serifs tore at my synapses
Till I finally let them in
Ancient scripts
A war torn city on the brink
On the waters edge I faltered
Then the waves crashed overhead
And in the undertow my journey began

As the days fly by
The hours stand still
The hands of the clock move in for the kill
As the days fly by
The hours stand still
From these broken feathers, we’ll make our wings

Found a bottle on the beach
The message inside wasn’t complete
For the time had worn the paper thin
“My reflections not,….what it used to be…..
I’m broken down,…. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy”…..
Track Name: Hanging Off A Memory
We are the ones who will save you
I am the water
We are the ones to betray you
Drowning in laughter

Love this lie
Live this lie

Clinging on for no good reason
Hanging off a memory
Clinging on for no good reason
When will we let this go?

I’m not one to say you’re lowly
I’m the one you will hate
I’m not one to fade so slowly
I’m the one you will hate
I’m not one to say I’m sorry
I’m the one you will hate

I can’t sleep for fear of falling

Clinging on for no good reason
Hanging off a memory
Clinging on for no good reason
When will we let this go?

I’m not one to say you’re lonely
I’m the one you will hate
While you live in failed glory
I’m the one you will hate
I’m not one!

I can’t sleep for fear of falling

Clinging on for no good reason
Hanging off a memory
Clinging on for no good reason
When will we let this go?
Track Name: Timepieces & Lock Shaped Hearts
I once tore the world a new asshole
A reckless taunted soul
These are the songs I
Screamed at the world

Does it all counts for nothing?
All the great songs have been sung
But these are the songs I leave to the world

This is all for you
It has never been more true
Timepieces and lock shaped hearts
They’re what I leave for you

I once tore the world a new asshole
Can’t remember why I’m mad at the world
As it all crashed down
Empty and gnarled

I suppose it all counts for something
Screaming ‘bout my demons we’ve been here before
Time and time again
It’s becoming a chore

This is all for you
It has never been more true
Timepieces and lock shaped hearts
They’re what I leave for you

I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world
And scream my lungs into this void

This is all for you
It has never been more true
Timepieces and lock shaped hearts
They’re what I leave for you

I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world
And scream my lungs into this void
I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world
And wait for you until I’m….
