Track Name: Lethargic Reason
Can you hear me?

Lethargic reason replaces this sense of doubt, I'm tearing at the shroud, my fingernails chipped and wore down

There's no meaning inside this, I cannot watch this anymore

There's blood everywhere here, no sight of the guilty except the memory of words inside these fragmented thoughts

Can you hear me? God I can't scream it any louder.....can you hear me?

My blood curdles as my hair stands up upon this realization:

It was there all along before my eyes, my body lifeless for a moment to find the words to speak.......

Jaywalking somnambulist........
Track Name: Jars
They store light in jars, a senseless fascination, as i dangle so blindly....I sleep so soundly

Like a swarm, fervently blistered, like a swarm....never again

I see these wings that you've clipped oh so silently, to fall beneath, so blindly as you walk thru this life kept in jars.....never to return again

To lock life in a jar, and never see the sun again

Like a swarm, fervently blistered, like a swarm....never again

I see these wings that you've clipped oh so silently, to fall beneath, so blindly as you walk thru this life kept in jars.....never to return again

Could we ever see the sun again? Your crutch to carry...I'm not alright, it's not alright

Jars.......

I see these wings that you've clipped oh so silently, to fall beneath, so blindly as you walk thru this life kept in jars.....never to return again

Now could we ever see the sun again? Your crutch to carry...I'm not alright, it's not alright
Track Name: Sleep
Ends of nerves in the realest sense, I've never seen the likes of this, expulsion draws conclusion in a perpatic view of convoluted intent, distance lies within the water as we carry it on so aimlessly, yet I cant help but find, perspective lost amongst the site......

Dont stop to breathe, there's no coming back from this, what does it take to wash these bloody hands

I still cant believe we found our way to this, sickening really...as I cant stop laughing

Driving further, far past the obscene, keep driving further, far past the obscene

What a place to be, in the depths of mind where no one sleeps, I found refuge in this, where the sun still sleeps......

We've all been damned to this, no rest in sight, our bloodshot eyes pried open wide

We are the sleep walking elite, where the sun still sleeps

Sleepwalking awake
Track Name: JD
I spend my time pined away over the ruse, deflating fascination circling the hue, This isnt something you can worry away, its merely something I've engulfed in a way......

You can see from a distant sight....how can you sleep with that look in your eye

Bidding farewell beyond the sight....all I see is white.....

Washed along with depravity amongst your disease.....

And wait for the day, for you to come home

It's all that I can do is wait
Track Name: (Sub)concious Thoughts
Drown that sound and hold tight, cuz it's a feeling that doesn't sleep beyond their strain of subterfuge

Try and think of motive that dont conflict.....I'm wearing thin

We are the ones forsaken, left to walk this narrow road, we are the amalgamut, broken and hollow

Yet I found some peace locked away in the corner, just try and understand:

That I have urges to strike up the conversation, yet it still cuts like glass

Beware, they come in 3's, beware, the plague they breed

Finding oneself inside this place, a dying realization that I must see......

Elegant refuge awaits while locked outside....in the storm

Yes, they come in 3's.........
Track Name: Scorn
You're stabbing with such murderous intent, bury my body at the bottom of the ocean floor.......

And I'll take you with me, so no one will have to face and endure this scorn again

Never again......

Inside this hell we reside l, I'll keep you with me for all time

No longer will your life breathe death, no longer will they have to face.......this scorn again
Track Name: Bridge
Buried under the bridge, where the embers swell....

Dont let go, but please pry me from the grip

A back and forth sort of stance, just drive the nail in the coffin

Sleep isn't meant to be had with memories like these......
Track Name: Black Sheep
A haunting disturbance if you will, so cynical, INSTILLED WITHOUT REALIZATION, the will go on wears on everyday, an eager sense OF DEMISE WITHIN THE PREMISE, a nightmare but I can't sleep, they say silence is golden, still locked outside....AND IT'S BEEN RAINING FOR DAYS, the sun yet to shine, grey wings cover over this night, I'm losing my mind....AS THESE WALLS BEGIN TO CAVE...... 

(somewhere between stillborn and breach, drowned in bleach, white washed with no sign of redemption) 
YOU LEFT A MARK SO DEEP, OH GOD PLEASE TELL ME WHY, WHY CAN'T YOU TEL ME WHY?!?!?! 

Everyday the mind wonders aimlessly, these images....OF OBSCURITY, LOCKED IN THIS PLACE, the black sheep wonders with such noble cause, so cold...EVER GAZING, IT'S NEVER ENDING, take a good look inside cuz I'm begging you to find some peace of mind..... I'M SCREAMING UNTIL I BLEED OUT, could you ever really see what this means to me, a scapegoat....BURY ME INSIDE THE FALL..... 

(somewhere between stillborn and breach, drowned in bleach, white washed with no sign of redemption) 
YOU LEFT A MARK SO DEEP, OH GOD PLEASE TELL ME WHY, WHY CAN'T YOU TEL ME WHY?!?!?! 

why....... 

Folding alongside the heart strings, making my way through these veins, I'm open wide in a surreal state of clarity, all to vanish from under the tide, hold me up.....pull me up 

black sheep..... 

I can't take this anymore, I want it back.......but it's far to late, I watched these days slip away in the blink of an eye 

All I can do is stand under the silence, oh how I miss the sound of that voice, nurturing all while being led to the slaughter, with all that's in me....i want it back....... 
Track Name: Ceiling
11:56......
eyes up at the ceiling 

Cumulative faction, a stain absolving the remains, blank words with stares that say what words never could say...... 

Eyes up at the ceiling 

I heard it round the town, you best believe it's true, cuz I'm begging you to see it, I'm begging you to follow through....... 

Wring my neck, im begging you to follow through, wring my neck, you better follow through 

In the limelight of these hours, I roam free amongst the streets....... 
The eyes that peer around every corner, are weary of an ill fed sheep 

It's like staring up from the cage, as the water seeps in, neck deep as I sink, the vultures circle in..... 

Coming down from the rush of it all, it's such a swill of bitter recluse...... 

Oh you blurred the line again, martyr to vulture....... 
Or vulture to martyr? 
I can't make sense of it....... 

When will it end? 
When will it drain me out?  
Track Name: The Fear Is What Keeps Us Here
Left settled in the adornment, abhorrent it escalates, this fear is what keeps us here, diluted in its dreamstate......
An overwhelming sensation, that leeches off what's inside, an overwhelming sensation....as I gaze upon its face.....

And I dont fear nothing, I dont fear nothing at all....but what i do fear is......this ghost inside

And i fear I'm losing my mind, from this ghost that lives inside

A night of irrational thought, usurped by insomnia's deathbox, this torrent stains the face of this ghost

Close my eyes, I'm not afraid

And i fear I'm losing my mind, from this ghost that lives inside
Have you taken my soul over, am I even alive?

And I fear......
The fear is what keeps us here

And I watch you watch me, fall away so quietly, and I watch you fall away.....and drift away do silently

The fear is what keeps us here, I'm falling away..........
