Track Name: The Chosen
The Chosen

You left me alone and stranded, I could not feel a thing.
Among the crowded market streets I wonder and I don't even feel a thing.

There's death in my eyes and a cold heart supplies it.
Will this lonely traveler be noticed?
And what if I have lost all hope and focus?

There wasn't much left to discover.

The dreams of fallen souls lay rest with hero's tolls.
Silence is my home. They're not the only ones, stay focused honored sons.
Define the chosen and you will soon become.

Redefine what you could have had by starting with what you can.
You know that the world has fallen and you will see your path.

And in the crowded market streets you wonder and you don't even feel a thing.

There's death in my eyes and a cold heart supplies it.
Will this lonely traveler be noticed?
And what if I had lost all hope and focus?

The dreams of fallen souls lay rest with heroes’ tolls.
Silence is my home. They're not the only ones, stay focused honored sons.
Define the chosen and you will soon become.

I look up as a shadow covers the sun.
Its an outstretched hand wondering what I've done.
Now I know you're there.

Will I find my way home? The stars at night we both can see.
Will I find my way home? Will I find you?

You're beautiful to me and now I see,
There will be a day when we'll find our place in this world,
And I will follow and you will come to me.

The dreams of fallen souls lay rest with heroes’ tolls.
Silence is my home. They're not the only ones, stay focused honored sons.

Define the chosen and you will soon become.
Track Name: Twentieth Lung
Twentieth Lung

Hope will come down.

There's a cruel wind and its blowing in again. Disbelief changes what you see.
But I dream and envision myself in a world where you cannot waste away,
And you will submit your place here.

Take kindly these words as I invade your inner being as you decay.
I'll bring you back now craving, ethereal.

You cannot change the world, don't keep on faking.
Disaster come faster. You cannot live again,
Please don't waste it only for change.

Now that I've lived to see the desperation, what have we become?
Is it challenge or greed that becomes our selfish need,
Or the thirst and hunger that drives us under?

Take kindly these words as I invade your inner being as you decay.
I'll bring you back now craving, ethereal.

You cannot change the world, don't keep on faking.
Disaster come faster. You cannot live again,
Please don't waste it only for change.

Change the way you feel. Now I know. I know, there's nothing left of me.
So far above the ever mess of a dreamer. Detach yourself with the undying burden.

You cannot change the world, don't keep on faking.
Disaster come faster. You cannot live again,
Please don't waste it only for change.
Track Name: Finding A Way
Finding A Way
Hey, it was you, that I heard calling from my dreams.
Why won't you move? I can't carry you or set you free.
I never knew you. You were so afraid.
Someday we'll meet again.

You see it was a bridge that has carried me across and now I'm lost.
My heart cannot find you, I'm exhausted and alone.
And your tears and mine will fill another river. We're on our way home.

Finding a way and hoping someday we will be free from all that cruel.
I'm sorry that I had left you behind.
Tonight, I'm leaving you.

Please come alive, I don't have much time.
Hurting inside, I'm so scared to leave this dream.

Carry me now, I am falling down.
And your tears and mine will fill another river.
We're on our way home.

Finding a way and hoping someday we will be free from all that cruel.
I'm sorry that I had left you behind.
Tonight, I'm leaving you.

Will you find me somehow? Could it be, a dead voice in the crowd.
Now I know I've nothing to say. You're a dream. You mean nothing more to me.

Finding a way and hoping someday we will be free from all that cruel.
I'm sorry that I had left you behind.
Tonight, I'm leaving you.
Track Name: Hold On
Hold On

It’s strange that she said to move faster. A cold hearted love won't last here.
Out of reach and out of time. Terrified she cries, blinded by one night.
Before the sunshine fades, the emptiness will leave.

Alone, alone it’s hard to leave you.

Filing in towards the ledge, with nothing but decadence.
Out of reach and out of time.
And if she wants to change, better find more to life than this.
Moving through the night she finds herself…

Hold on, this is the wrong time.
Lifetime, of waiting here.
And I could be the one, because this is not over.
I pray, never say never.
Lifetime, of waiting here.
And I won't be the one to hold you down.

Alone is somewhere you don't belong. Alone possesses those who are not strong.
We're wasting time away. A lone betrayal brings down a king.
Alone drives madness even now we sing. I'm wasting time away.

Hold on, this is the wrong time.
Lifetime, of waiting here.
And I could be the one, because this is not over.
I pray, never say never.
Lifetime, of waiting here.
And I won't be the one to hold you down.
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Sleepwalker
Hope to gather the pieces of your mind, and watch you predispose yourself.
Come here, comply, and we fall down understanding why you never cared or let it go.

Just take my hand. I'm reaching, I'm trying and desperately pleading.

If you don't dream. If you don't wonder, we fear all won't be alright.
You cannot leave. You must endure and carry on with hope and fight.

The challenge every passion has is to filter out the rest and focus onward.
There's a dissonant past that keeps haunting and reminding you it won't last.

Just take my hand. I'm reaching, I'm trying and desperately pleading.

If you don't dream. If you don't wonder, we fear all won't be alright.
You cannot leave. You must endure and carry on with hope and fight.

I'm gonna find myself. I fell from all that's right.
With this war on life we will fend. Forge us and we'll rise to descend.
Hail to the thief who cries guilty pleas. How I've regressed. What have I become?

If you don't dream. If you don't wonder, we fear all won't be alright.
You cannot leave. You must endure and carry on with hope and fight.

Drown in your fear and your sorrow, breathe a new life for tomorrow.
Track Name: Light Your Eyes
Light Your Eyes

Over and over you crawl hopelessly for fame.
Nefarious what you crave, your twisted fantasy.

You couldn't kill me, you had to leave me here this way.
As you crave with a diabolic stare, you tell me I'll be alright.
Your only claim to fame is you have no love, you only hate with no conscience.

Just breathe, like everybody does.
The sun will rise above and light your eyes.
You have to hold on and freedom will come.
Now wash away your fear and walk away.

Closer to closure you get as you breathe from walking away.
This time's the last one for sure yet it's only Saturday.
If it was left to chance would you bite your nails to the bone.

You couldn't kill me, you had to leave me here this way.
As you crave with a diabolic stare, you tell me I'll be alright.
Your only claim to fame is you have no love, you only hate with no conscience.

Just breathe, like everybody does.
The sun will rise above and light your eyes.
You have to hold on and freedom will come.
Now wash away your fear and walk away.

If you had followed, would you see me there. If you had color, I wouldn't be so scared.
You couldn't save me. You couldn't face this. There was no agony that I haven't seen before.

Just breathe, like everybody does.
The sun will rise above and light your eyes.
You have to hold on and freedom will come.
Now wash away your fear and walk away.
Track Name: Vigil
Vigil

I am the fallen lives. I will never rely. I anticipate you.
Awaken me and you'll see.

Just another word that sets you on fire, cutting away pieces of your desire.
A fifty gallon drum couldn't hold your anger. A firestorm that's brewing is soon to come.

With this driving force we must keep our vigil. Until we meet again, so I can finally find my way home.

When I am alive I'll take you down in the night.
I'll give your bones a break and carry.
Now here we die and watch us rise away.
And I've saved my own life.

A fleeting mess among the few. The dead voices are making news.
Behind your lies you cannot hide. A firestorm that's brewing you'll surely find.

With this driving force we must keep our vigil. Until we meet again, so I can finally find my way home.

When I am alive I'll take you down in the night.
I'll give your bones a break and carry.
Now here we die and watch us rise away.
And I've saved my own life.

Now we fall alseep. As we lift our gaze, we see nothing but emptiness.
How long must I fall? As we fall asleep, and as we lift our gaze to the sky, how long must I fall?

With one life. With one life.

When I am alive I'll take you down in the night.
I'll give your bones a break and carry.
Now here we die and watch us rise away.
And I've saved my own life.
Track Name: Here We Stand
Here We Stand

There's a light that's dragging on, and it's carried me this far.
Once again, I failed to send the message pawn.
Bridge the gap of certainty. Finally claim the things we need.
One more step is one more chance to understand.

They said I was young.
They pulled me away.
I fell to my knees. Would you carry me?
I have no regrets for the first time.

Here we stand, over death. You take it away. (There was a time)
You took all the pain. (The world we held up high)
You threw it away, (All we've known forever) from me.
Please don't stay afraid.

Now I see there's a destiny, overrun with your pure vanity. What do you think now?
Open doors but you cannot dream, with the genocide and your dead to me.
Cut away, cut away.
To become a fool is to act of lunacy.

They said I was young.
They pulled me away.
I fell to my knees. Would you carry me?
I have no regrets for the first time.

Here we stand, over death. You take it away. (There was a time)
You took all the pain. (The world we held up high)
You threw it away, (All we've known forever) from me.
Please don't stay afraid.

Multiply the many wounds on broken fingers. Better than the amputees of many more.
And as you crawl you want to breathe, the stench too strong.
The screaming kids won't tell a lie.

Here we stand, over death. You take it away. (There was a time)
You took all the pain. (The world we held up high)
You threw it away, (All we've known forever) from me.
Please don't stay afraid.
Track Name: Distill
Distill

A paralyzing will won't let go.
A death roll spiraling out of control.
Now that I've been overcome.

How can I face the day alone? I cannot fall when I'm already down.
Before I had told you...

Go, severance is in my heart.
Now we must depart.
I'm dead inside and broken now.
There's nothing left of me.

Imagine my will as I'm reaching the end.
I'll break you I'll take whatever I can.
Now that I've been overcome.

How can I face the day alone? I cannot fall when I'm already down.
Before I say, why don't you...

Go, severance is in my heart.
Now we must depart.
I'm dead inside and broken now.
There's nothing left of me.

How can changing for someone hurt?
You've taken all essence from me now.
I'm left, the worst is soon to come.

Go, severance is in my heart.
Now we must depart.
I'm dead inside and broken now.
There's nothing left of me.

Just let me go, I hope you know I cannot wait for you.
I'm dead inside and broken now. There's nothing left of me.
Its almost over.
Track Name: Spirit In The Machine
Spirit In The Machine

Slowly, you turn and you walk away. Faintly, you die with each step you take.
Tonight comes slowly but you know, fate is awaiting us in this storm.

Climbing, I'm fading fast tonight.
Struggling, to keep my head up high.

With each step you beat defeat. You breathe, beauty grows in your strength.
Tonight comes slowly but you know, fate is awaiting us in this storm.

Climbing, I'm fading fast tonight.
Struggling, to keep my head up high.
Reaching, I feel the beaming sun.
Truly, this battle has been won.

I will be there, don't look so scared. I will be there.
You said that you needed me. You said that you needed me.

You know I'll be there.
Climbing the walls. Climbing the walls, to set you free.
Holding my head up high tonight.
You know I'll be there, to carry you.
Climbing the walls. Climbing the walls.
Can't you see? Holding my head up high.

Come back to me, I'll set you free. Come back to me.
Be still and know I am near. Be still and know I am here.
Come back to me...
Track Name: Flatlined
Flatlined

Reach inside yourself, take all you've got. Failure's no more.
Displays are on full force, it's your last shot. Bring on the war.

Keep pushing through your agony. It's your energy.

You can make it, one more hit I will not back away.
I'll fight head on and crush your inner weakness.
With everything that I am, destroy you, break you, down.

Forget the rest, the time is now. You've been called. Let's fuel the flame.
It's your last chance, adrenaline flows through. Now hit the floor.

Keep pushing through your agony. It's your energy.

You can make it, one more hit I will not back away.
I'll fight head on and crush your inner weakness.
With everything that I am, destroy you, break you, down.
Track Name: When I Was Young
When I was Young

Standing beneath this picture,
I am caught between the side of you that we can't see.
And you keep on pulling and your draining in my mind.
Your world of betrayal.

See through my eyes and you'll find there's nothing left to see.
There's nothing left but pain and disaster.
You're fading faster.
I cannot live. I cannot live again.
Almost made it. And now I know.

Hear my words as they deter the rest of fear and love that won't ever last here.
Nights grow cold and there is nothing left but death in my eyes again.

See through my eyes and you'll find there's nothing left to see.
There's nothing left but pain and disaster.
You're fading faster.
I cannot live. I cannot live again.
Almost made it.

When I was young I found a way to sing.
You weren't there, you left me alone to say,
Without you I'm stronger.
Now we live, now we live through my own world.
