Track Name: Impressions
Commence the chaos.
Don’t you ever think that you have control over me again.
Track Name: Dreamer's Disease
These are the frontlines
Our hearts are ready for war
Our wills are being tested
These words will settle the score

My passion is burning,
It keeps on growing, it keeps on thriving,
It’s never-­‐ending.
But no one knows it,
no one feels the angst
I’ve built up over all these years
The thought of disappointment constantly creeping
I will escape it,
I will escape it,
I will escape it and pursue my hunger.

I’ve been staying up late at night asking myself
“where do we go from here?”
We’re dreamers surrounded by our fears
When the planets align, they reveal, all of
The hope in my heart, when I look to the sky.
Constellations don’t tell lies

Fire your bullets of condescension
I refuse to sink.

Mark my words,
my mark will be made

In the darkest of oceans
I’ll stand strong against these tides
My heart is a vessel.
I refuse to sink

I’ve been staying up late at night asking myself
“where do we go from here?”
We’re dreamers surrounded by our fears
When the planets align, they reveal, all of
The hope in my heart, when I look to the sky.
Constellations don’t tell lies

My passion is burning
It keeps on thriving,
it keeps on growing
It’s never-­‐ending
But no one knows it,
no one feels the angst
I’ve built up over all these years
The thought of disappointment constantly creeping
I will escape it,
I will escape it,
I will escape it and pursue my hunger

Tired of the faults and barriers
preventing my persistence of achievement
My will is made of stone.
Track Name: Sleeper Cell
It's another fairy tale.

My eyes have been opened wide to your misery,
Your disgusting face.

This is not a dream,
the time has come to face reality.
I’m not afraid to be, your biggest enemy.
Believe me, you'll be the one whose six feet underneath.
Don’t you ever think, that you could be
better than me.

Knock me to the ground.
Prove you’re the bigger man.
Now its time for you to say goodbye
to all of us and good riddance to
all the false fronts and fake smiles you put on
You’ll be begging for your grave, now
Rewind this,
Go over and over again.
This is where it all ends.

No.
So many times you’ve tried and failed.
I’m coming back after you put me through hell.
Lets get this straight,
I never liked you in the first place.
Lounging on your web of lies,
so high and mighty now.

Take a sip from your cup of pride, along with your appetite of lies.

Did you really think I'd be the only one to notice,
Your crooked demeanor is only getting larger.

Knock me to the ground.
Prove you’re the bigger man.
Now its time for you to say goodbye
to all of us and good riddance to
all the false fronts and fake smiles you put on
You’ll be begging for your grave, now
Rewind this,
Go over and over again.
This is where it all ends.

Through these eyes,
I watch you fall down.
No, I can’t take it anymore.
No, no, I wont allow it.
Can you understand the words that I am preaching?

Just like gravity,
I'll bring you to the ground.

Believe me,
you'll be the one whose six feet underneath.
Don’t you ever think,
that you could ever be better than me.
Track Name: Praying Mantia
Hey kid, Don’t give up you’re not even you yet
I know the times are hard,
but I’ll keep pushing on

The cruel words of one, are nothing to the shouts of many

You fear another day, another moment of ridicule and judgement Picking away anything left of your self-­‐esteem
Thoughts of despair always linger,
a growing crowd of hunters flock to your harassment

And their shouts won’t deafen me,
their ridicule won’t bring me to my knees.
They won’t bring me down.

The cruel words of one, are nothing to the shouts of many

Forced misconceptions, pollute your mind,
flooding out any thought of clarity
You feel alone but that’s the furthest from it
Pain; You shouldn't feel it
Rage; you shouldn't feel it
Hope; should be the only thing coursing through your mind and body

Hey kid, Don’t give up you’re not even you yet
I know the times are hard,
but I’ll keep pushing on

And their shouts won’t deafen me,
their ridicule won’t bring me to my knees.
They won’t bring me down.


Day after day I felt the suffering that came with
every waking moment of life.
It plagued, It plagued, it plagued.
I will no longer be constricted by your petty tactics of demeaning me.
I am finally in control again.
Conquered the tyrant who truly had no power over me.
Track Name: My Last Story
Whispers surround the complex of my head.
They say, they say, they say words that can’t be retraced
Our foundation is failing, why have you stopped breathing
for the progress, we slaved so hard for.

Our foundation is failing, why have you stopped breathing
for the progress, we slaved so hard for.

It started with a nameless, forging this fable

Remove the anchors we’ve placed.
Turn to a brand new page.

I resent the choices we’ve made
We can’t become conquered within
What happened to the persistence we once retained
we. once. retained.
Remove the; anchors we’ve placed.
Turn to; a brand new page.
Don’t fall now, into the gaping jaws
Build up from our fractured walls
Retract your stabs of misperception
Clean the wound with clarity
The sharks lust for the confliction, don’t give them the satisfaction,
the attention.

Ignore the outside, Confront the Inside.

Silence.

The chapters are torn and frayed, Its time to turn the page.
Turn the page.

The chapters are torn and frayed, Its time to turn the page.
Turn the page

Turn to a brand new page, Remove the anchors we’ve placed.
Track Name: The Second 21st (feat. Armando Diaz)
Come back you’re out of reach.
Left for dead and forced to breathe.
Back down you’re killing me.
It’s sickening, poisoning.
Oh, I’ll break on through.
Try my best to get to you.
Run we’re out of time.
There’s no more heroes left alive.

A sense of immortality has been shattered,
Memories of a better time come flooding into my mind.
The guilt of surviving is crushing my conscious,
I pray to keep this omen gone.

What fragile creatures we can be.
Breathe in, Stay calm.
The heroes are gone,
Can’t believe they left us here, All alone.

Breathe in, Stay calm.
The heroes are gone,
Can’t believe they left us here,
All alone.

All alone.

Hidden in the cracks of existence
The Sudden shock of an empty being
Carves into my aching heart with deep sorrow
A torrential force gushes through my dissolving psyche


A needless sacrifice is permitted, to paint a momento mori
A reminder of death

What fragile creatures we can be.
Breathe in, Stay calm.
The heroes are gone, Can’t believe they left us here,
All alone.
Breathe in, Stay calm.
The heroes are gone, Can’t believe they left us here, All alone.

All alone.

I swear to God, you’re like a thief in the night,
The way you’ve stolen our hearts, and surround them with light felt so surreal, So surreal.
Aimlessly I'm following my heart again,
So leave your past where its at Cause I swear it wont last another day.
Don't turn your back on all your dreams and just hold onto hope Your holding on to fears you know
you need to let them go. It's sad to say we learn to live to late.

What fragile creatures we can be, Lets live before we die.

We are the anchors, pull ourselves under.
