Howl 04:38
A fresh impact onto the unknown, As promising as beginnings go. Disrupt momentum, It helps us move on. Undeniably in doubt, Confronting this argument. The past is limited with silence, Enlighten and repent. Holding fragile moments dear but not one is sacred to you. Mistaken immortality for failures, Debilitated and taken down. Blinded by intelligence at a lifetimes expense, All that is evident misted with ignorance. Disregard induced this decline, Exhausted, scorned, worn and resigned. What’s impractical? What’s impossible? To lead it on for so long. Withdraw to where we’ve been before, To go so far and no further.

One mark of absent mindedness The harshness of loathing skin and bone Losses are lesser, nurture this burden And disposal is a waste of it all. An absent influence that brings relief, Keep your secrecy; it’s never meant anything to me. Unfolding insincerity, talent lies in deceit, The craft of cheating. Make believe misfortune to keep yourself down Undaunted when the real disaster hits. Disconnect, keeping distance, At the last moment come to lose what you’ve found. The faintest spark attempting to impart, Coughed up promises churned out to embrace faith, not one was ever believed. There’s no quality like arrogance, there’s no defense when falling flat is risking fortune. These things are sent to test us The practice of misleading Every measure unforeseen 
Dragging undue weight First error lies elsewhere Retreat, march on! Repairing the damage that has been done. Crushed, move on! Finding comfort in these lessons.

Temperamental Faltering foundations I feel it slide Collapsing from the inside Uneasily I’ll find my feet I’ll remain capable Reinforced for now But it’s still perishing My discomfort directs me Vexed by irrational scrutiny Assuring plagues of despair Articulated fears Inflicting such pitiful catastrophes Sabotage my subconscious, sparing me Drained and dragged, confined in my mind, unraveling twisted reasoning. Shining forth, drawn to this glow, unfortunate for the tormenting. Far behind I’ll see This falling short of everything Far behind I’ll see There is cause for release Far behind I’ll see The lack of ability to collide Far behind there will be No remorse this time

Remancer 01:48
A hard lesson to understand I educate and learn nothing Teaching how to make the most of a wreck. Indulge in emotions, Swallow them whole, and immerse Yourself in these consequences. Uncover neglect with a halfhearted attempt And now you’re representing everything that we stood against. An easy lesson so I’m told, To pass through the underhand. This knowledge will ensure to isolate. Feet tripping over tales, Mixing myths with minor truths And occupying mouths. What’s left of endearment? Hollowed out devotion. Fueling advances, elevated memories Revising my statement, revisiting my soul, I rebelled against perfection and watched it devour all. Seeking out perspective, Unearthing everything. I disagree without regret Forever learning to settle for less.

Oh I, I believe in notions, of findings, that are far from transparent. It’s remarkable what becomes uncovered. When instinct does not mislead There is no pleasure in unveiling truth, When the answers are so bleak You must be lifeless to seal all speech Leaving warmth unspoken Threatening already broken bonds Your palm was always open (Understand you stand alone) Your palm was always open Eyes pried wide to resilience (The bleeding off of energy) Build it up and reconstruct (This backbone has been reformed) There’s intensity in this influence Eclipse what should have been Miles and boarders and the unfamiliar (Soaring past the moment of breaking) Evolution in these strange surroundings I find it inspiring But you covered tracks to protect All that separated you from your wishes

Echopraxia 03:15
And here again where ends are meant to meet Tried and tested methods for the wild and restless A trial in the strength of our morality A vessel to embrace immortality And what I’ve witnessed is no great loss Wits beaten hollow, failing on reason, All consciousness knocked Your body is a crime scene and the tape reads ‘do not cross’ Endless monsters I saw come to life A clarity in the mistakes of others Uncountable apologies we owe The best examples are found in mirrors You don’t need to fill these silences Unthinkable acts We traded innocence For something we’re not sure of yet A love, drip fed in a flood Is your conscience clear? Were your born to fight? Are you pure of heart? Do you worship the night? Is it luxury? Were you born to fight? Do you lust for blood? Do you worship the night?

Gloam 03:31
The sheer disrespect of this To disregard and feign bliss I listened to the movement Now I’m stunned to silence Claim to love it, unconditionally But boast resent with charmless ease What seems to get overlooked Is this is not compulsory This isn’t who we are Lost in the lines inbetween Your bitterness in this business A hate supreme and merciless Pierce with distaste to watch it bleed Romanticizing misery This league is bred to criticize And now we watch it multiply Fail to resist intrigue in interest Detonate the illusion of affluence This sunrise brings entitlement And we fight to earn it All is not lost for this lost art Though it’s forged with lukewarm sentiment When all else is laid to rest. How dare I dare to demonstrate? What was beloved is now waste Grieving the death of easier days Against dominating waves Laboured breath forcing it to wake Call control on what you did not create Reduce this weight before we sink Revive and reverse, resist and return. Conquering my despair The true prevalence of passion

Illuminaire 07:36
A tremulous motion of light Measure these flickers with a delicate hand It flows so readily, a deepened agony Tender to the thoughts of eternity. The appearance of entirety We search for peace in these pieces Dismantling absoluteness. Embrace veiled conflict Unashamed to let this unfold It’s observations that have lead us to this point The nights we felt unable to shout When cries are whispered into the depths of the dark. Scrawling out these sentences, etching on reflections Let these meanings disseminate. With stillness ringing out It starts up and astounds Let serenity resonate Project my ascent Overthrow and illuminate I will not relent Marked by the stars Balanced in the scales Here it lies, glistening There is no applause for this Radiate with ease Granted this relief Resisted tales Drawn out in ink I will not relent.
