Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up

Look toward the sun rise
There’s more than blood
Behind your eyes

Feel the weight upon your heart
There’s so much more than
A tiny spark

What’s in your mind
That’s so confined
You live a lie
Happy blind

What does it mean?
Eternity
The tragedy
We don’t believe

Wake up don’t you see
Belief can only set us free
Wake up take your time
There’s something here you can’t define

Sit & watch the sun set
There’s something there
You won’t regret

Lean into your lover’s kiss
Explain away
What you felt as bliss

Can you deny
What makes you cry
There’s something more
We can’t ignore

What’s in a dream
Eternity
The misery
We don’t believe
Track Name: Reticence
Reticence

All the words I meant to say
All the ways to sing your praise
Every one of them dies in my heart
I’m all alone but I’ve got to start

Reticence is another way to say
I can’t bear the loss or feel the pain
I’m sure that I lost some time ago
The uphill climb to push this stone

Left me all alone
Beneath the tree home away from home
Breaking down what was me
If you’re real then I’m a fantasy

One life I’d like to be
The sole provider of the sympathy
Not again put away the game
The charm is gone now it’s all so plain

Rats will crawl and birds will fly
The cycle plays more than once or twice
Tell me what this all means
Is death the end or an eternity?

Demons take up my rage they start to march
My pulse sets the pace my soul provides the chart
War starts without an enemy
The army turns and it stares at me

Reticence is another way to say
I can’t bear this cross another day
I’m sure I lost some time ago
My soul was ground beneath my stone

Take me far away
Somewhere we could leave behind decay
No roads, no ties to life
Just you and me and something new in sight

Let me have my dreams
Your logic kills all it cannot see
Without faith, without belief
What’s the point of a life so brief

Cats will claw but birds will fly
The cycle plays more than once or twice
Tell me what this all means
Is death the end or an eternity?
Track Name: Ravage
Ravage

Scared past indignity
Everywhere no where
Is it safe to speak?
What’s it mean to be yourself?
Or apart?
Turn out the light

Sometimes the beaten path can be the scariest of roads
Traverse from life to death surrounded by unknown
Ravage all our innocence we’ll face the game alone

Holding hands can we dance alone?
We don’t need another theme
Designs mean to hinder
Every Dream
Every night we’re apart

Sometimes the beaten path can be the scariest of roads
Traverse from life to death surrounded by unknown
Ravage all our innocence we’ll face the game alone

Leave your life behind your ideas
Sacrifice your mind in vain
A tragedy beheld in pain
Cry scream and fight to flee
Beg forgiveness on your knees
Bite your tongue and watch your words
Can you really hope to last?
Or to live?
Eternity alone

Sometimes the beaten path can be the scariest of roads
Traverse from life to death surrounded by unknown
Ravage all our innocence we’ll face the game alone
Track Name: Patterns & Chaos 2: Same Life
Part 2: The Same Life

Waken to another nightmare
It’s all the same to me
It’s what I’m meant to be

All the same

Everyone nothing to me
Substantial just another lie
Nerves alive in silent symphony
It’s all some other life

My father’s son departs his ways
Takes a stand to take his place
Throne of men countless years alive
And every son will suffer to divide

Where to turn the thinner blood flows
Vengeance turned for loss of pride
Walk away never ending infinity
Hold the embers of life

All the same

A restless youth before ageless eyes
Learns the truth behind the countless lies
Ebbing stone its judgment’s call
The pearl of life as the pattern falls

The same life
All the same

My father’s son imparts his ways
Explores the past through his forgotten maze
Expressed beyond the solid will
What mind and soul combine to build
Track Name: Patterns & Chaos 3: Shadows
Part 3: Shadows

No one here can be real
Flawed versions of an ideal
What was that? Am I mad?
Was this all part of the plan?

Everywhere I look there’s a fragment of my past
Forgotten faces, shadows I have cast
Everywhere I look there’s a road that leads home
Through forbidden places where only shadows roam

Five hundred years pass on
The players have all withdrawn
My mind has betrayed me
What’s left of my memory?

Everywhere I look there’s a fragment of my past
Forgotten faces, shadows I have cast
Everywhere I look there’s a road that leads home
Through forbidden places where only shadows roam

The pattern in my mind
It’s how this world was designed
I made up who I am
A stranger in this shadow land

Everywhere I look there’s a fragment of my past
Forgotten faces, shadows I have cast
Everywhere I look there’s a road that leads home
Through forbidden places where only shadows roam
Track Name: Patterns & Chaos 4: Chance
Chance

Darkness has ended now
Pain has all but gone
Come to my father’s house
Stranger for far too long

There’s no more room for me
Loyalty has ended here
They chose their legacy
It’s time for me to disappear

Walk alone, is this my eternity
Trust is gone, with all ties to family
Walk alone, I need to find another way
Pressing on, the cold light will end the day

The blood of my brother flows
Tear through the shadow zone
Someone at home must know
Or worse, they might condone

What if we set it right?
Where will my vengeance lie?
Exile could save the light
Redeem myself before the night

Walk alone, is this my eternity
Trust is gone, with all ties to family
Walk alone, I need to find another way
Pressing on, the cold light will end the day

Marking the symble now
Is this what it’s like to die
Shackles have been unbound
The miracle of life is mine

Wartime will come and go
Past mistakes will flood today
The son that I’d never known
Will learn to walk another way
