It's become a problem, I can't seem to exist....... Inside my own skin, how can this be? How can you love, with so much hate? How can you hate, with so much love?
2.
Perdition says to me "we got time to die". Within essence of life....how could we be? Looking back on it now, I can see: 20/20 hindsight within me. How could we be so blind? Asphyxiating irrelevance.... contaminate the conscience.....can you hear him calling? And now's our time........ Perdition says to me "we got time to die". Within essence of life....how could we be? Looking back on it now, I can see: 20/20 hindsight within me. How could we be so blind? I can't stop the shrill sound, it echoes in the hollow with nowhere to be found Perdition says to me "we got time to die". Within essence of life....how could we be? Looking back on it now, I can see: 20/20 hindsight within me. How could we be so blind? This is far beyond the obscene, this is far beyond the breaking point...... Something bout the way, the air fills my lungs.....can't help me breathe.... Perdition says...... (ever so sarcastically) Maybe someday you'll come back with a new sense of hope, and drown that plague Perdition says to me "we got time to die". Within essence of life....how could we be? Looking back on it now, I can see: 20/20 hindsight within me. How could we be so blind?

Nothing Left 03:11
Where do you draw the line? Cuz I can't see a thing.... The iris is faded....a different shade of grey.... The question of virtue.....morality caving.... Our lives are so fleeting, is there nothing left for you to say? All that I can do is sit and pray, we waste the night away........is there nothing left for you to say? I found something within these walls...beyond comprehension, beyond understanding (within these walls) I'm down to my last, I'm down to zero, i got nothing to show...... (im down to zero) All that I can do is sit and pray, we waste the night away........is there nothing left for you to say? Take me, break me, shape me....is this what you want from me? Dilute, lay rest what's left.....as you cross the line again....pulling the strings..... (Nothing left to say, nothing left to give, nothing left to show, nothing left) Pull the strings..... You're forcing my fingertips alongside cracked glass, cutting in deeper alongside the palm.....nights like these carry on so long...

Distance 03:28
blacken out the sky, a conjuring of night, as I reach to find...the stars are torn down from the sky.....things like this you see, the abyss grows empty, how could you stand by...and watch this fall tonight why do we try, I disappear I'm falling back tonight, to find the end in sight, don't let us fall tonight, within the distance we define elocation dies, as the sin defines, it's like water through the hands, this euphoric bliss failed again....it's time to open wide, and rip this from inside....it's time to open wide and watch this fall tonight why do we try, I disappear I'm falling back tonight, to find the end in sight, don't let us fall tonight, within the distance we define it's so far away, it falls away from me (x2) I'm falling back tonight, to find the end in sight, don't let us fall tonight, within the distance we define
5.
The night spent with idle converse, black like the look in your eyes.......it's faceless, fragile, cracked and marred.....I'm in and out as everything spins round and round Now the light is fading just like your disdain, juxtaposed within the thought...... Now that time is swaying back and forth I swing, left alone inside the thought...... It's eyes twitch back and forth, unsettling....I can't breathe but i can see.....it cracked a smile and spoke in a manner that's haunting, captive in this converse....... Now the light is fading just like your disdain, juxtaposed within the thought...... Now that time is swaying back and forth I swing, left alone inside my thoughts...... Black like the look in your eyes (thoughts) black like the look in your eyes....... Now the light is fading just like your disdain, juxtaposed within the thought...... Now that time is swaying back and forth I swing, left alone inside my thoughts...... Left alone inside my thoughts.......left alone.... Left alone

7fold 03:15
It's sevenfold and spinning.... Wrapped around inside parallels, I can't justify the means to the end..... Is this what you want? Is this what you need? I've died a thousand times, I'm running out of blood......faith has taken shelter as the tides begin to rise......... Jump...... Lead me, show me, cuz I can't see a thing, as the rope begins to fray... Bury me, cuz its falling into pieces, within the fault, within the fray A black tide will rise, it's sure to find Dragging the waters til they find their way....... The guilt clenched tight, as time's gone by......treading the water Lead me, show me, cuz I can't see a thing, as the rope begins the fray... Bury me, cuz its falling into pieces, within the fault, within the fray I lay this down, I'm breaking the mold, and let this die....it's sevenfold........cuz it's falling into pieces, as it's falling away It's falling away, it's falling away.... Jump............

Touching with... my fingertips......silencing... no breath escapes.... See it, believe it, it's coming.... No sound escapes It's esoteric in the way it resounds, encased in glass theres no way to be found....hovering over this lifeless charade.....hovering over......can't feel my face Pulling through....tracing the face......just wake up.....I can't wake up...... No sight, no mind, it's coming..... No sound escapes It's esoteric in the way it resounds, encased in glass theres no way to be found....hovering over this lifeless charade.....hovering over......can't feel my face No sound escapes, within the esoteric thought inside this place........inside this place Tracing over the face with my fingertips......I can't let go
8.
IN:COMA 03:44
separate, paralytic, in coma, parasitic....it dug it's way deeper in, solid grey, manifest, cross out the eyes, cross the line, enigma, persecute, it found its way deeper in, crawling it's way back in Its come so far, just to lie in idle hands.......a tearing down of self, forging this shell, in coma hell.... It's come so far, just to lie in idle Hands......a falling out of former self, replaced the notion, in coma hell.... Decimate, convalesce, persevere, regress...It found its way back in. Silencing train of thought, fill this void, hollow out.....it's crawling its way back in, killing off clairvoyant sight Its come so far, just to lie in idle hands.......a tearing down of self, forging this shell, in coma....... No I can't stay.... In this purgatory hell I lay.... I can't wash away..... This storm won't pass.... Its come so far, just to lie in idle hands.......a tearing down of self, forging this shell, in coma hell.... It's come so far, just to lie in idle Hands......a falling out of former self, replaced the notion, in coma hell....

What's up with this shattered premise? It's become salt in the open wound, no cure for the itch..... it makes me sick Im begging you to bite your tongue and chew on glass...a waste of words I'll never get back I've got something on my mind to say.... 2 words on my mind in my current state 3 words I'll take back and put in the grave Just bite you tongue and chew on glass.......... Just bite your tongue, and chew on glass.... it's esoteric and i won't forget It's esoteric and I won't forget I won't forget, I can't forget I won't forget, I can't forget
10.
I can't save, don't bother.... What dare say you........ Forever scorned, forlorn..... I can't say I blame you for The shade of gray that lies within those eyes, an epitaph written on the walls........stick the vein I can't save, don't bother.... What dare say you, don't bother.... This life after you, this life after judgement........ Cut me down I can feel it crawl across my skin The mind is bent, I feel so sick.... These words across the wrist Serenity in severity Time is held like a noose, a photograph with the trigger cocked It's Silhouetttic, it's so pathetic..... But I can't say I blame you Time awaits no one, regret and wait hand in hand....the hour glass, this daily bleed, cut me down and release me...... Dig the pins and needles in, make sure this time it sticks......I can't hold on anymore......release me I can't save, don't bother.... What dare say you, don't bother.... This life after you...... Can't say I blame you.......can't say I blame

Pariah 03:35
The scents of winter, the smell familiar, just like the burning red, cast upon deaf ears It's like burning down, the proverbial pariah....... It's like falling out, the existential periphery How you cast such a sound, I learned so much more this way...... It's like burning down, the proverbial pariah....... It's like falling out, the existential periphery Just like the empty space, where your eyes used to be, just like the burning red, I learned so much more from this I watched the seasons change (I watched the seasons change) within a life that should have been, it should have been, it should been......I watched the seasons change I slept for days on end, I buried my head in this, with nothing left to show, with the air growing cold, words dead left unsaid, buried deep within the snow.........
12.
letters written but never sent, the stack is thick with dust collect, why even try...can't walk outside....my focus shot.....a lifeless shell....ultimatum dead like your hospital bed death threat You brought me too close to hell....... I'm tangled in the lies you leave it's not the life I see.... I can't relive the unforgivable suffering cry wolf on repeat..... words within in the air I breathe.....all I do is drift and sleep my days away.... I've wished my life away for the better part of yester-year yet the knot still sits in my stomach..... Turning faster and faster, The currents keep pulling me under the waves, I hope that I am saved, I'm not the one to blame Crawling back inside, Crawl my way back to the start...... I cannot sleep. This past haunts me and eats away at my dreams. They told me it gets better, but coping is harder than it seems. My scars will never heal, their roots grow deep on the tree. Someday i'll realize this made a man out of me........ I've come to grips i can't forgive and i can't forget, it's like a thorn in my side......someday I will find a way to let this go......

about

"Life After You" is a concept album of sorts. The Protagonist is leading life at the end of his rope and is constantly burdened by a voice in his head by the name of "Perdition". After losing the will to live he takes his life with his own hands. He wakes up in an out of body experience within a room where all 4 walls are mirrors and "Perdition" comes to life in bodily form to haunt him. Each song is a chapter that depicts the protagonist's encounters with "Perdition" and takes him on a journey of introspection within himself as to why he took his life. With each song he gains more perspective and must battle "Perdition" to regain the life he once lived.
