Track Name: The Fall
Lost, what you hold most dear

A sense of self,

a knowledge of purity.

What makes up your being?



Shell, of your former self

Blending in with the masses.

No remorse.

What makes up your being?



Judging others

Scolding the weak

Breeding hatred

Preaching ignorance

What makes up your being?



Preconceived assumptions,

misguided, unjust and

ungrounded.

Preconceived assumptions,

Suspended in time

is the safest place for us.

Can you see what you've become?

Tearing the fabric of man



Fall, Fall, Fall. Began the fall of man.

Fall, Fall, Fall. Began the fall of man.

Fall, Fall, Fall. Began the fall of man.

Fall, Fall, Fall, Fall, Fall. Began the fall of man.
Track Name: In The Peripheral Part I
Wading through the glades

knee deep in what vultures refuse.



A winding path frail and deceptive.

She walks equipt,

with an empty chest and a fear of what may come.

In the colour of night a silhouette,

draped between branches,

falls to it's feet, standing statuesque.



As fake as the day man made it.

Using fear as opportunity.

Promising all,

delivering crumbs.



Pleasing to the eye

yet void of feeling.

His spores latch deep

altering her perception.



As fake as the day man made it.

Using fear,

as opportunity.

Promising all,

delivering crumbs.



Pulling at her sides

leading towards a

bleak view, mindset, torment

face to face with...



A salesman of lies

nourishing false hope

offering temporary solutions,

leading to future consequence.

Preaching a false gospel.

Proclaiming...



“We hold the answers

To all life’s questions”

“We hold the answers

To all life’s questions”



Beneath the eye line

A deceiver.

Beneath the eye line

A shape shifter.

Beneath the eye line

A deceiver.

Beneath the eye line

A shape shifter...Proclaiming...



“We hold the answers

To all life’s questions”

“We hold the answers

To all life’s questions”



“I take lives not save them.

Behold the eyes

the butcher.”
Track Name: The Clarity Process
Bridge the divide.



Our hands torn of fingerprints.

Identities lost in the fray.

You ask for help from the wise.

Yet condemn, when critiqued.

Blaming others for what you’ve done.

The mark of the proud.



Bound by the harmony of colour.

Embrace what was once feared.

Progression is not singular.

Bridge the divide.



There is more to life than yourself.

The proud will stumble at their own hands.

Breathing stale air.

Left with only regret.



We hold the eyes of the young in our hands.

We are the...

We hold the eyes of the young in our hands.

We are the...

We are the example.



We hold the eyes of the young in our hands.

We are the...

We hold the eyes of the young in our hands.

We are the...

We are the example.



Leave your fortress

with a sense of humility.

Tear down this construct

built by blind men.



Leave your fortress.

Embrace what was once feared.

Tear down this construct.

Progression is not...singular.



Bridge the divide.

Bridge the divide.

Bridge the divide.

Bridge the divide.
