Track Name: Reach (feat. Danny Taylor)
discovering all of the uncertainty that disrupts connections with my former self
no parallels to be drawn
the footsteps have faded away in the sand

such determination in myself that i have seemed to let decay

messages transcend blurring my place in time
synthetic light peering in
the voices they call out and never relent
conspiring, conniving, never giving in

stopping and starting never seemed so exhausting when ambitions can flicker and fade
pretend to watch the past bleed in the hopes that the present heals

stopping and starting

stopping and starting never seemed so exhausting when ambitions can flicker and fade
messages transcend, the voices in my head
conspiring, conniving and never giving in
Track Name: Asphodel (Feat. Moondog)
In the beginning I never could
truly acknowledge the elephant in the room
But as I looked in the mirror my reflection became contorted from my feet up

As I open up the window,
I take a deep breathe of fresh air and it seeps in
And from then on
My face was drawn so roughly on the canvas we call sense

Emerging into dust
My place in time
Never seems to change
To heal these cuts a bruises would be a never ending game

Unscripted changes within a play
(Corrupting the root of the problems)
Unconsoled, so cold in times of desperation
(You coward, you will never fucking solve them)

Pure annoyance and disgust
Seep into my veins
And I won't try to break

As I open up the window
I can't repent and life won't relent
And from then on
My face was drawn so roughly on the canvas we call sense

Emerging into dust
My place in time
never seems to change
To heal these cuts a bruises would be a never ending game

Unscripted changes within a play
(Corrupting the root of the problems)
Unconsoled, so cold in times of desperation
(You coward, you will never fucking solve them)

The lies,
The truth
Become so clear
As morality wins over me

I've had enough
To be someone
is all I've wanted to be
Track Name: Saitama
To feel is what I crave
As emotions walk right past me
They constantly wreck my head
I'm no longer in touch with who I once was
Comparison at large
Efforts okay at best

I am growing sick and tired of falling into the same dream
A state of comatose in which I cannot move
I can only see reality laughing back at me

Positives prove
To be outweighed by
Negatives they maliciously
Encroach everything
Shifting in and out of ambivalent thoughts
It's winning again and taking control of me

Happiness is a light that flickers in and out of time
The filament, damaged by the darkness
Sadness is an acquaintance that knows me well
It knows me more than I do myself

My tendency to
Eradicate all thought of hope
Diminishes the life within me
Inside the back of my hollow head
Only I
Can change how I feel though
Restlessness
Encompasses me

I'm not the person that I crave to be
And that's the reason why I distance myself from everyone around me
Track Name: Cloud
And so
We find ourselves in this never ending predicament
Over and over again
Drowning out our surroundings in the seat of a carousel

A playground filled with fun and games
Completely unaware of all the damage we create
Derogatory blood passed down from every age
While I just stay the same

If we could see the opportunities that we have failed to take
So many doors would open
Instead of interfering with judgements
And the way that we think

I shut my eyes
In the hopes that you open yours
And learn how to reconcile

I refuse to demean my insights towards everyone around me
I've spent my time
Building up my defences
Against a hatred and arrogance bigger than me
The intercepting ignorance is completely unnecessary

If we could see the opportunities that we have failed to take
So many doors would open
Instead of interfering with judgements
And the way that we think

I shut my eyes
In the hopes that you open yours
And learn how to reconcile
