Track Name: Bright Hands
We long for the sweet satisfaction
of purging our distractions and colliding in
the moment of something bright and beautiful.
Maybe
Just maybe
If we invest in each others time
Maybe
If we clash hard enough
These disgusting things that make us human
Will perish from within us.
Track Name: Nairomi
This world hates us
A plague of rage torturing us for years
This world hates us
As we parade in shame and drown in our fears

This is pathetic
as we divide ourselves by the tones of our skin.
Our love is synthetic
We murder each other with the same hands we shake with.

Submit.
Lay down and die.
You're a defective man.
Living the perfect lie.
Submit.
You're just a sheep.
Less than the dirt
beneath my feet.

Disarm me,
Before I end the broken soul standing before me.
Disarm me,
I will relinquish your light with the hands god gave me.


Is the truth to much to see?
I am the light in you.
You are the darkness in me.
Heavy lies the weight of man,
I will show you the truth with my bare hands,

Put an end to this habit.
Forever crushing ourselves with the weight of our poor judgement.
How we can we manage?
In an appalling state where we ridicule one another?
Our love is synthetic
Murdering each other again and again.

Submit.
Lay down and die.
You're a defective man.
Living the perfect lie.
Submit.
You're just a sheep.
Less than the dirt
beneath my feet.

This is what racist scum want you to believe.
You are not inferior, blind, or weak.

They will fear you
as you break your chains of self-destruction.
They will fear you
as you cut your tangled strings of desperation.

Man's true failure:
He who judges does not accept himself
Track Name: Black Oak
I'm not sick I'm just a bitter damned man
I'm not sick I'm just a bitter damned man
I'll Show you the scars of these rotten hands
I'll Show you the scars of these rotten hands

40 hours of wasting away
In a crowded room of anger and decay
To shatter my back for paper conceived in greed
Some over time in Hell is all you'll ever need.

We've become slaves.
Currency is the fuel that makes us this way
Over glorified slaves
Currency is the fuel that makes us this way

Endless moments
of endless torture

Where is your value
How much will it cost to release yourself

For every dollar stained in blood?

40 hours of wasting away
In a crowded room of anger and decay
To shatter my back for paper conceived in greed
Some over time in Hell is all you'll ever need.

What does man value himself?
A bloody penny for your thoughts.

The color of money,
forever stained to your fingertips.
Earned for somebody,
Whos unaware that you exist.

Endless moments
of endless torture

You are greedy men,
overweight with guilt.
Soon people will burn the enterprise you've built.

Where is your value
How much will it cost to release yourself...
Track Name: Merciless
Shadows erect in our arms
Snuffing out the lights
Love breathed so beautifully
Into our cancer coated hearts.

We are tearing ourselves apart.
Bearing love as a weakness.
We were doomed from the start.
And that cuts the deepest.

Fixating on machinery.
Losing sight of natures touch
When did social harmony
Seem to be to much?

We've forgotten how
to love
ourselves
In the absence of
warmth from
another
Reminisce
Reminisce
On what ceases to exist
In the embrace of bitterness

Now I'm half my whole...
Free of joy and self control...

When you get close
Something pure takes a hold of me.
It takes every bit of me.

Take every bit of me

We are tearing ourselves apart.
Bearing love as a weakness.
We were doomed from the start.
And that cuts the deepest.

God knows I battled my mistakes
Pursuing broken faith
Hoping you would see
The honest side of me

When you get close
Something pure takes a hold of me.
It takes every bit of me.

My body begins to break,
When yours takes its shape
My heart starts to pound
At the earth beneath me.

Mercy take your hold on me.
Track Name: Threads
OPEN YOUR EYES
TO SEE THE WORLD INSIDE YOU.
THERES SO MUCH HEART
THE EARTH CRUMBLES AROUND YOU.
YOU'RE BROKEN INTO PIECES OF DOUBT.
YOUR CONFIDENCE
CAN BREAK THE WORDS IN THEIR MOUTH.

IS THIS HATE TO MUCH TO LIVE FOR
IS THIS LOVE TO MUCH TO DIE FOR

I NEED YOU TO FIGHT WITH ME
BECAUSE I CANNOT DO IT ALONE
(SO SWING)
UNTIL YOUR KNUCKLES ARE BROKEN
(BURN DOWN)
BURN DOWN THE HULK OF YOUR BURDENS
(LIVE ON)
LIKE ITS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO BE EVERYTHING WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN

OPEN YOUR EYES
TO SEE THE WORLD INSIDE YOU.
THERES SO MUCH HEART
THE EARTH CRUMBLES AROUND YOU.
YOU'RE BROKEN INTO PIECES OF DOUBT.
YOUR CONFIDENCE
CAN BREAK THE WORDS IN THEIR MOUTH.

DON'T YOU GET TIRED OF
CONVINCING YOURSELF
THAT YOU'RE WORTHLESS
AND NOT GOOD ENOUGH?

HOW DID WE BECOME SO SOFT.
WE LET EVERYBODY IN FOR A HEART-FELT CAUSE
I LOST MYSELF AND SLIPPED THROUGH THE CRACKS
BUT I STOOD IN ALL THAT FIRE TO TAKE MY LIFE...
BACK.

STAND UP AND TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK.

IS THIS HATE TO MUCH TO LIVE FOR
IS THIS LOVE TO MUCH TO DIE FOR

I NEED YOU TO FIGHT WITH ME
BECAUSE I CANNOT DO IT ALONE
(SO SWING)
UNTIL YOUR KNUCKLES ARE BROKEN
(BURN DOWN)
BURN DOWN THE HULK OF YOUR BURDENS
(LIVE ON)
LIKE ITS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO BE EVERYTHING WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN

DON'T YOU GET TIRED OF
CONVINCING YOURSELF
THAT YOU'RE WORTHLESS
AND NOT GOOD ENOUGH?

KNOW YOUR WORTH.
YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN THIS.

I'M TIRED OF RUNNING FROM MYSELF.
I'M TIRED OF RUNNING FROM MYSELF.

SAY
GOODBYE TO THE CHAINS OF PAST
THAT HOLD YOU DOWN
SET YOURSELF FREE
Track Name: Satellite Earth (ft. Garrett Russell)
You're a plague
to a sorry human race.

I hope to God
that all of his mercy runs out on you.
Drown in the black seas.
Full of death that I tread through.
Your corporate slaves set the trees ablaze
Leaving wildlife to lay in a perfect waste
Your business is overrun with snakes
But I hope their venom takes hold on your veins.

Now tell me am I really free
When wealthy men destroy the earth around me.
Now tell me am I really free
When broken men fight for the air they breathe.

We've been lying to our sons and daughters.

You're a plague
to a sorry human race.

You've buried all bright things I love.
To suffer in death is not suffering enough.

Now tell me am I really free
When wealthy men destroy the earth around me.
Now tell me am I really free
When broken men fight for the air they breathe.

I would die to see you smothered in chains.

We've been lying to our sons and daughters...

I hope God's mercy runs out on the most selfish of men.
Track Name: Sunsetting
You are worthless if you waste every moment.
As if time could never pass you by.
Held closley by goals that are stagnant.
Eat, work, sleep, repeat and die.

You've got something trapped inside ready to break away.
We were never built to live this way.
Your ambitons lie in a self-loathing prison accompanied by your happiness.

Stop pretending that youre not a mess.
Peer pressuring yourself into a failure.
Their opinions are overrated.
Don't let these peons get a hold on you.

I refuse to let life pass me by I have a better plan.
Bathe me in the purest things the world can offer.

Stop selling yourself short.

Death to your rancorous thoughts.
Relinquish the things that make you soft.
Don't ever get caught in between
Living life and chasing the dream.

It's now or never.
If things don't get better.
Will my heart still tremor with a surge of hope.
I don't feel safe
And im losing faith.
In those precious words you spoke.

Get off your knees.
Stand up and try.

You've spent hundreds of days
Maybe you gave it a thousand
Hoping someone would notice
"My god this kid has heart"
You get halfway there
And you give it your all
To watch your hopes and dreams fall apart.

Don't Give up the Dream.
It's the only real thing we have.

I've given all that I have,
Yet I have much more to give.
Track Name: Shadow Radiant
I'm the darkest figure in the night.
the hateful shadow born of broken pride.
I'm the darkest figure in the night.
Destroying everything you hold in light.

The bonds we share, we share in ruin.
Effort diminishing.
Slowly fading into nothing

The bonds we share, we share in ruin.
Effort diminishing.
Slowly fading into nothing

Swallow that grudge of yours in disgust.
I know it leaves a sour taste inside your mouth.
Swallow that hate of yours in disgust.
I know it leaves a grotestque beating in your heart.

I'VE BEEN STARING AT NOTHING
AS IF SOMETHING TRULY EXISTS
LOST IN A SLIGHT FADE OF MY OWN DISGUSTING CONSCIOUSNESS

AS IF SOMETHING WAS REAL IN THIS HOPELESS ABYSS
YOU TELL ME ITS REAL AS YOU LIE THROUGH YOUR LIPS.

LIE THROUGH YOUR LIPS.

Letting go of the poison in my lungs.
Letting go of the shadow that lead me on.
I'd give up everything having nothing left to give.

Tear me away.
I don't belong in the darkness anymore.
Tear me away.
Bathe me in the light so I can be restored.

THE FEELING OF FAILURE.
THE FEELING OF LOSS.
I'VE WATCHED MY EVERYTHING BREAK DOWN AND DISSOLVE.

It will never be worth it.
Throwing shade on who you are.
It will never be perfect.
Moving forward with these scars.

I'm the darkest figure in the night.
the hateful shadow born of broken pride.
I'm the darkest figure in the night.
Destroying everything you hold dear in light.

Letting go of the poison in my lungs.
Letting go of the shadow that lead me on.
I'd give up everything having nothing left to give.

Tear me away.
I don't belong in the darkness anymore.
Tear me away.
Bathe me in the light so I can be restored.

I will bury all bright things you love.
And I will shadow all that you believe.

I hope you burn.
Track Name: Human Nature
You should be ashamed.
For treating your brothers this way.
Discard me like a rat in the trash,
And take my pride because its all I have.

Draw your guns at me.
Kill the believer, but not what he believes.

You could never take my faith away.
I'll take my love and ideals to the grave.
You could never take my faith away.
Hiding behind your guilt and shame.
I will not fade into nothing.
I will not waste away with you.

We tell each other good night
just to backstab each other in broad daylight.
A thousand times we claim to love.

We are but souls bathed in guilt and ruin.
Under a loathsome dark influence.
Torn and bruised by circumstance.
But in the end you had your chance.

You had your chance to be more than worthless

You could never take my faith away.
I'll take my love and ideals to the grave.
You could never take my faith away.
Hiding behind your guilt and shame.
I will not fade into nothing.
I will not waste away with you.

Maybe,
Just maybe,
If we invest in each others time...

These disgusting things that make us human,
Will perish from within us.
