Track Name: Desolate
Get up, move out, now run, here comes the animal
That seeks and destroys to taste the blood
Get down, to beg and plead, we praise the animal
We'll trade one for peace to honor his name

I know my place
Where I belong
Now I must face
What I fear most
The smoke and ash
The charred remains
It is my calling now to see this slain

As I'm walking into my fate
I can feel my fears brushing through the flames
In this moment I throw them away
Face it now there's no one else

Get up, move out, now run, here comes the animal
That seeks and destroys to taste the blood
Get down, to beg and plead, we praise the animal
We'll trade one for peace to honor his name

Its a losing fight
Its a means to an end
But this town is my home to defend
I've seen the desolation
I can't ignore
The destruction which you bore

As I'm walking into my fate
I can feel my fears brushing through the flames
In this moment I throw them away
Face it now there's no one else

Now his bravery they celebrate
It will never be forgotten in the days
That follow more to the same cold grave
Face it now there's no one else
Track Name: Reach
I'm made for more than this
Than what I see surround me
Than this simplistic, domestic tranquility
The illusion of what we're supposed to be

I'm not you. I'm not who they want me to be.

If this is where it all leads,
All roads to a strange and peaceful misery
I refuse to slave
I won't let my soul be caged

Outstretched to reach your helping hand
Only brush your fingertips when I slave to meet your demands

I'm not you. I'm not who they want me to be.

I've tried and tried to fit the mold
I'd twist and bend and writhe
Unnatural this ritual to coincide
Unnatural this ritual to live in lies.

Outstretched to reach your helping hand
Only brush your fingertips when I slave to meet your demands
I'm not looking for acceptance
I'm asking you to see me for who I am.

Track Name: Heil Hydra
the bombs have fallen through the air
they tear men to shreds and i drop to my knees
amassed your wrath for years
you've made us all enemies

you fool, my name is Ra

don't breathe the air, my son
they're coming for us
don't sing her name, she's gone
your mother is dead

you walk the walk, you talk the talk, you light your anthem with the loved ones that you've wronged
you call for peace but gas your child
you seek redemption, dressed up in your lies

old man, you're no god

don't be afraid my son
i've covered for us
don't call her name she's gone
a victim to this
i am not to blame for what you seek
or why you hide from the truth

don't be afraid, son
it's only us
don't scream her name, she's gone
[lay] her body to rest
i will bring back the dead to witness the end
i will bring back the dead to witness the end
Track Name: Anxiety
Separation of body and logic
The muse, Ideally ironic.
If I could bend and twist,
If I could just forget...

Anxiety? Or maybe just a spark
Tangled and jumbled up inside of me

Tangible and I'm holding so tightly.
I start to loosen and you remind me,
Pull me back with empty words
and i know I'm not the last or the first.

Anxiety? Or maybe just a spark
Tangled and jumbled up inside of me
I've tried to replace it, I've tried to escape it, no matter how i try I just can't erase it
And I am going down

The storm is nearly here
The current fuels our fear
All hands, man your stations
Reject the call of sirens!

Death's calling out your names
We can't go down again
I've fought for too long on these waters
won't take me out drowning!

Anxiety? Or maybe just a spark
Tangled and jumbled up inside of me
I've tried to replace it, I've tried to escape it, no matter how i try I just can't erase it
And I am going down
Track Name: Ascension
In that moment
Felt the wave of energy
Didn't know it
Precious last gift you gave to me
Now I will share your story

And now you are free
And now you are free

Peace was real
In the presence of your passing
Felt the joy
of the everlasting
Its my turn now to share this peace

And now you are free
Prismatic burst of energy
Silence screaming out
And I can't fight it now
Oh why, oh why not me?

From the moment I saw you
I couldn't believe
Your ascension had started
But you're still with me
