Track Name: Shedding the Chrysalis
Metamorphosis.
Shedding the chrysalis.
Unshackle me from myself.
Eternal being as I am.
Tear me from the inside out.
Bleed me of identity.
If I turn away now, I’ll never be the same.
Slip silently into eternity.
Track Name: Ego's Stronghold
Falling faster down the spiral.
Consciously aware.
Emotionally devoid.
Chained my psyche to misery.
Too fast I lose my grip on reality.
Shattered pieces of what I have always been reflect back an image of sorrows son.
Shattered pieces of what I have always been reflect back an image of sorrows son.
The looking glass self professes a weakness I cant seem too escape.
An entity made of my own creation devouring me piece by piece.
Piece by piece.
Maybe it’s myself Im afraid to see.
Maybe it’s myself Im afraid to be.
Pull back the mask and reveal my higher self.
Drown in self reflection.
My mind keeps swimming with no apparent shore.
Iv’e collapsed underneath the weight of it all.
The pillars that gave me strength fade away and disintegrate.
The pillars that gave me strength fade away and disintegrate.
This state of being is all ive ever know.
Its cessation reforms the inner me.
Separate myself from false claims.
Disengage from the negativity festering inside of me.
Psychological suicide.
I must hold on to something or find purpose in the unknown.
My mind keeps swimming with no apparent shore.
Track Name: Grotesque in Nature
Deceiver.
Grotesque in nature.
You've found solace twisting a knife in my ribs.
Condemned me to a life bereft of hope.
To you my life means fucking nothing.
I’ve become no more than a pawn piece, on your chess board.
The scars you've carved into my soul wont falter my step one fucking inch.
The blood you've drawn is a wake up call.
I hope you realize your worst enemy.
A trail of blood lies in your wake.
I’ve released all of your constraints.
I’ll show you suffering.
Retrace your path.
Show you your wicked ways.
Take this knife from my back and stick it in your fucking chest.
Thats the least I could do for the pain that you’ve caused.
The tragedy, and all that I have lost.
I’ll show you suffering.
Track Name: Many Forms
When will you realize your lies?
Open up your eyes.
Accept the possibilities of your soul.
Your slumber’s placed a veil on the world.
Complacency becomes a death sentence.
A false sense of humanity weighs heaviest on the purest of hearts.
Our malcontent swept under the floorboards.
Reject this putrid reality.
Accept the possibilities of your soul.
Narrow minds, simple truths slip through your grasp.
A sea of apathy.
A sea of apathy.
A sea of apathy flows through your veins.
What would it take to eliminate all the hate?
Release the toxicity.
Release the toxicity.
Release the toxicity from our consciousness.
Discordant are we.
Separated from our true form.
Endless possibilities we deny from the fear within our heart.
Destroy the toxicity lingering in me.
Discordant are we.
Endless possibilities we deny from the fear within our hearts.
Reject this putrid reality.
Ascend past your frailties.
Reject the many forms of toxicity.
The darkness can only consume you if you allow.
Be a beacon of light onto yourself.
Arise from the ashes rebirth a new you.
The universe isn't against you, it lies within you.
Ascend.
Reject the many forms of toxicity.
Track Name: Flux
Casualty of existence.
Erode my mind with time.
Beating my spirit down with persistence.
A pain staked voice echoes out from the shadows.
Guised with lies to anchor my soul to the depths of regret.
Pain turns into wrath and fury.
This existential crisis may be a path to self destruction.
Destruction.
This graveled path I walk both treacherous and solemn is my path alone to master.
I’ll stand resolved in all my power to defeat this unrelenting pathway to self destruction. Destruction.
Breathe in the light exhale your hate.
Limitless and perpetual.
Redefine your mind control your fate.
Limitless and perpetual.
The essence of life is yours to create.
The essence of life is yours to create.
Breathe in the light exhale your hate.
Limitless and perpetual.
Redefine your mind control your fate.
Limitless and perpetual.
As high as I get will be matched by the lows.
As above so below.
I’ll greet all events with equanimity.
The essence of life is yours to create.
As high as I get will be matched by the lows.
As above so below.
I won’t become a casualty.
A casualty of existence.
The essence of life is yours to create.
The essence of life.
Track Name: Peace No More
I think we’ve failed here.
Why do we needlessly suffer?
Ruthless ones lay claim to the world leaving scraps for our brittle bones.
Can we change course before we are lost as sea?
Can we be more than the pain that we seek?
Myopic tendencies deplete the fruit of the world that we seek to reap.
We’ve traded in our sense of decency.
Replaced it with a need to satiate our greed.
Low frequency of thought is now all too commonplace.
Are we to remain blind to the fate that we face?
Can we change course before we are lost at sea?
Can we be more than the pain that we seek?
Finality.
For all humanity.
Finality.
Finality for all humanity.
