Track Name: I, Alone
I ALONE

Everything's collapsing now
Another storm is fast approaching
Will this bastion hold it out?
I keep all my dreams inside
Will you mend these broken wings of mine?
Will you lend a helping hand so I can pull myself out?

And the skies seems so-far-from-the ground
And the skies seems so far away

This case of flesh and bone,
(Is) something that can't contain my soul
Each step will bear my call
I'll make my journey any way I know

No matter where I'm running
I always try to find my way back home

Insanity or not,
I will struggle till all (the) blood
Is drained from my heart
I'd fight your gods; I'll cross your lines
Prove you wrong
I'll never stop
Walk over the edge
To make my flight

This internal struggle (is) raging deep within me
I can't show any weakness,
I won't bargain with my integrity
Darkness is falling
I won't give in

Your expression says it all
Your gaze can cut through flesh and bone
I'm bleeding but I ask for more
(You) underrate the strength of my resolve


Sometimes, it seems so hard to grow
When all that's left are ashes of the past
But the night is darkest just before the dawn
And in these ashes we'll plant the seeds of hope

No matter where I'm running
I won't forget the place where I came from

Insanity or not,
I will struggle till all (the) blood
Is drained from my heart
I'd fight your gods; I'll cross your lines
Prove you wrong
I'll never stop
Walk over the edge
To make my flight

I won't let my dreams fade away, until all hope is gone

I'll always run
But never flee
I'll leave behind a trail
That defines me
I'll always run
I'll always run
I'll leave behind a trail
A trail that defines me
Track Name: Separate The Oceans From The Skies
SEPARATE THE OCEANS FROM THE SKIES

When tides recede and leave behind our empty shells
It will force us to reflect
On the times we had
(And) the mistakes we've made, my friend
I'm sure we've done enough
With more time we could've reached the stars
But life takes unexpected turns
And severs bonds that were unbreakable

Walk on
Don't even think about the
Could-have-beens, it's all behinds us now
This reef will dissolve
Beneath the waves
I'll see you again across the parallels

We travel distances
Transcending lines that tie us to this place
We leave behind our silhouettes
(But) tomorrow you won't know my name

I fall, crawl and rise up;
I regain my strength just to fall back down again

We lost our bearing
When we were hit by the storm
The course has led me into the
Great unknown

This vision won't fade I keep it locked in my heart
Waiting for a moment when our lives will restart
But now the tides are changing
I'm being drowned by the force of the undertow
Fragments of my soul
Will be scattered all over the ocean floor

All the actions
That define our lives
Leave scars that
We cannot hide

Walk on
Don't even think about the
Could-have-beens, it's all behinds us now
This reef will dissolve
Beneath the waves
I'll see you again across the parallel(s)

With every sojourn of my life
I leave behind traces of my soul
Some will never be found
Some will be taken by friends that I used to know
Track Name: Far From Your Eyes
FAR FROM YOUR EYES

We face some real time hardships
But pray to a fictive god
The void that we are part of
Will dim the light we own

He's steps into the fire and rolls the dice
Lays his own neck on the line with no doubts in mind
Not a knight in shining armor
Just a man against the odds
The man behind the line becomes the only straw that you can draw

He feels the odds are stacking up against him
With every step
He makes an effort to smile
With every break of dawn
Even though the reasons are all gone
What does it take to be a hero
Ability to overcome humanity's inherent flaws
What does it take to be a hero
Ability to overcome inherent flaws
And rise above

When we all come to zero
Silence will remain
Can you see the man or the hero
The martyr that we all betrayed

Wake up, wake up
The time is ticking away

She walks the streets at night aimlessly
Beneath the weight of judgment
Trying to make ends meet
Statistically she's well
Under the margin line
Can't catch a break to cry
Must carry on this battle we call life

She feels like everything is slipping away
Lost in despair
She makes an effort to smile
With every break of dawn
Even though the reasons are all gone

The affliction anchors them to the past
Sea of tears will drown their pain away
Silent portraits with no name
They are fighting for every rising day
every rising day

When we all come to zero
Silence will remain
Can you see the man or the hero
The martyr that we all betrayed

Far from your eyes
They will drown their pain
They will drown their pain away
Far from their eyes
There's a friend who's waiting
Waiting to call out his name
Track Name: Close To Our Hearts
CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS

Drink a shot for the open road
We leave our troubles at the door
It's a Friday night and we're setting off
These streets remember our names
Diamond stars will light the way
Hellos and goodbyes and Saturday's regrets

Void consumes me
At times when I feel despair
I will cherish
Every single day we've shared

(Our) actions speak louder than our words
Critics appear at every turn
Waiting for us to make the wrong move
We play this game from our hearts
We give it all, no second thoughts
That's why we've chosen to do what we love in the "now"

I'd never thought I'd find a place like this one
Where all my hopes would survive
Where I could escape my troubles
In that moment I'll be the boy who will shine
I'd never thought I'd find a place like this one
Where all my hopes would survive
I hope that I will find you there

Nothing in life is everlasting
I know it feels like it's the end of the line
But I'm willing to give it one more shot 'cause
If we stand together, there is nothing we can't

Overcome
We'll exercise our demons
And leave false prophets behind us
And when we face the final truth
(All) the things that we've been through
Will be sealed in our souls while the smoke rises up

We'll be partying all night
We won't sleep until we turn into ash
WE WILL GET IT DONE
Never looking back, we speed ahead.
WE WILL GET IT DONE
Into uncharted seas we sail

I'd never thought I'd find a place like this one
Where all my hopes would survive
Where I could escape my troubles
In that moment I'll be the boy who will shine
I'd never thought I'd find a place like this one
Where all my hopes would survive
I hope that I will find you there

And if the wind takes us separate ways
For what it's worth, I will never forget
The times we had, the songs we played
Till we play them again
