Track Name: The Well: Negating The Hand Of Hope
Regret so heavy
You hold your head as high as you can
but still it rests in the palms of your hands
They mark you as well and send you on your way
but headfirst down the well you tumble, and that's how you will stay
I was born in the fire and I will perish in the flames.
Track Name: Houses Like Headstones
Houses like headstones
All in a row
I walk past them blindly
I don't let it show
Teeth grind behind fake smiles
I swallow your lies
And I watch them die
The vulture's song echoes in my mind
I'm left behind
I built these dreams just to watch them burn
I inhale the ash as I walk a road paved with time
But what was once my hope is now just an echo in my mind
I die inside, I writhe
My life pass me by
Vulture's song in my mind
I'm left behind
The carrion song echoes in my mind
My life passes me by
Inside I writhe
I abhor this life
Track Name: The Optimist Mask
Forever knocking on doors of dead houses
Converse with the ghosts of no more
Skeletal trees, dead and carved
limbs outreach to a dark ink sky
I know your face like the smell of home
Familiar lights, welcome gaze, a heartfelt regard
Invited like the whispers of the tomes of neglect
I watch your optimist mask shatter and crack
To your ears they whisper in shards
planting the seed, it gestates in your mind
adopted words born of ill intent
a broken man years spent
thoughts like a ghost chant
feeling the failure set in
the plague psalm is set free
I return each night to a ceremony of flawed life
To this house I hold no key
To a mind forever diseased
turn out the lights
turn away, take your time
Leave nothing
Track Name: Sleep Walker
The last warm winds of a dead sun grace this place
I look on, over this sun dead land
And I know that much of this frozen night is shared within me
Trapped in this culling season
A guide to hopelessness and a host to despair
Much of this frozen night is shared within me
A guide to hopelessness and a host to despair
I look on, over this sun dead land
Trapped in this culling season
I find no relief in this place
Dead inside
No love
I stand alone
For now, I see carrion inside of me
It's my duty to purge the disease
Track Name: Collector
Born through alizarin
No choice has been given
By no right am I chained to this place
Time seeps in through every crack
Vision blurs with cataracts
Joints rust as years add
I don't see this curse as a gift
Life seen through reptile eyes
A cold life gaze with no light inside
I don't see this curse as a gift
Life seen through reptile eyes
A cold gaze
If the sun rises again, let it wash over me
Vengeance for this birth(Although I carry poison in my head the antidote can be found in my tail, which I bite with rage)
