Track Name: Reaching
At what cost
build to the sky
outshine our gods
shut down our minds
believe our own lies
never find rest
reaching so far
never see the goal

Occupy these days with expense and sadness
drain the soul dry in search of the rotting
blindly thrust ourselves into the fires of waste
hands, extended, become folded in mournful prayers

Mining our cavernous graves
our home, our mausoleum
in ignorance we stretch
reaching only the end

Occupy these days with expense and sadness
drain the soul dry in search of the rotting
blindly thrust ourselves into the fires of waste
hands, extended, become folded in mournful prayers
Track Name: Destined
To be lead down a path not of your choosing
emptiness fills the heart
To be guided to victory, a triumph of mind
scream to be free from the dark
Enveloped in fire, clothed in silk
freedom always within
To be guided to victory, a triumph of mind
scream to be free from the dark

To be robbed of your strength, lead by the reigns
bled til your bones are dry
Be elevated above those things that subdue
carve your own way in the skin
Enveloped in fire, clothed in silk
freedom always within
Even the wild animal has its way
selection and hunt of the prey

Believe in the darkest lie
let it overtake you
Be clad in armor
impervious to harm
Be destined to suffer
if you so choose
Activate the will
be destined no more

Force yourself to strength or continue to grovel like the coward
Doomed to feel your own loss in solitude or be celebrated as a true navigator
Track Name: Cursed
What evil hovers over me
this inescapable gloom
forceful hands binding me
stealing my heat

Has it assumed total control
can its grasp be broken
why have I called it up
what have I done

Hooves against the wood
eyes glow in the dark
power to consume
a gaze that turns bones to dust

Is this curse everlasting
decimating the will
this hollow was summoned
by my own guilty words

An epitaph
A fair warning
Speak not the name
Speak not the name
Track Name: What Comes Next
In the eve of life
beyond lighted eyes
comes the endless dream
the origin of waves
With the end of flesh
on the wings of death
a testament
of the boundless light inside

A freedom indescribable
A truth undeniable
Received only at
The Journey's end

Reality waiting
At the feet of fate
Reveal the voyage
You've yet to begin

Shed the shell, the false layers of time
Know that we are not, that we have never been

A freedom indescribable
A truth undeniable
Received only at
The Journey's end

Reality waiting
At the feet of fate
Reveal the voyage
You've yet to begin
