Track Name: The Watchers
Rear view, coated in concrete
Invite the weather, test the foundation
When we are water logged, then will we know how strong we are?
Make no mistake this time, there's no abandonment in me

Want this mystery to be
What you need to help you see
While they're taking you from me
I need to let it be

Recourse, relentless infection
Can spread the sickness, can't crack the foundation
Who are all of you, why do you insist on coming back?
Want you to know this time: you'll find no abandonment in me

Want this mystery to be
What you need to help you see
While they're taking you from me
How can I let it be

I want to but I can't see
They're invisible to me
I need to let it be
But how can I let it...

Want this mystery to be
What you need to help you see
While they're taking you from me
I need to let it be

Let it be
Track Name: Closed Eye
When will we see ourselves for what we cannot be?
Open, I see what's wrong, need a shield from the light
The place where we should be is behind my closed eye

We can't try
Don't pass my closed eye

Can we just stay asleep and live inside the dream?
We'll have all we could want until the open eye

We can't try
Don't pass my closed eye

Can we just stay asleep and just live in the dream?
Have all we could want
Track Name: Forward Progress
A transition from ambition
Re-examine feast or famine, this condition
Of what could be or what should be
Why exactly do I keep on dreaming
Even when my time is up?

Cause I don’t know any other way
And I’ll never take an opportunity
To get out

Find elation in this vacation
Satisfaction that transcends interpretation
Search for something, provided nothing
Why exactly do we keep insisting
Even when the clock’s run out?

Cause I don’t know any other way
And I’ll never take an opportunity
To get out

I never said I knew the way
What’s forward progress anyway?
I’ll stay in this consistency
If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right

No illusion in this collusion
Almost accidental, found this coalition
Explore in prattle, an uphill battle
Don’t wear a watch, don’t need the time
And if I find a clock I’ll turn it back

Cause I don’t know any other way
And I’ll never take an opportunity
To get out

I never said I knew the way
What’s forward progress anyway?
I’ll stay in this consistency
If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right

In the meantime
We’ll just rewind

Fuck forward progress anyway

I never said I knew the way
What’s forward progress anyway?
I’ll stay in this consistency
If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right

A transition from ambition
Re-examine feast or famine, this condition
Search for something, provided nothing
Don’t wear a watch, don’t need the time
If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right
Track Name: Coward Tongue
We're better off in here without you
There's no reason for you to be here
Self-righteous, full of shit
Worth none of what you think
You aren't fooling anybody

You gotta feel control to slow your own demise
Cause you have no respect for another one's life
It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies
Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine?
Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side

What did you think would come of all of this?
You think your wisdom would get us out of this?
So you've got it figured out?
Words from the coward tongue
But you'll let everybody take the fall

You gotta feel control to slow your own demise
Cause you have no respect for another one's life
It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies
Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine?
Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side

What did you think we would do for you?
What am I supposed to think of you?
What are we to do with all of this?
What now? We are done with this.

You are a burden to us all.

You know it's just a matter of time now
Before exposure sheds a light on you
There's no one left to fool
So play it by yourself
Blame's on the telephone and it's for you

You gotta feel control to slow your own demise
Cause you have no respect for another one's life
It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies
Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine?
Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side
Track Name: Threshold
Do you know the way
To make it all worthwhile
Or make it go away
When nothing makes you smile anymore
I guess we all have a point to break

Thought I knew the way
To turn back the trend
To reverse the decline
Turns out I don't know much anymore
I guess we all have a line to cross

I wanna make it all worthwhile
When you’re all out of pride

Am I tired
Am I broken
Am I angry at the sky for who's been chosen
Am I wrong
Am I guilty
And I never wanted you to find this threshold

Line

I guess we all have a point to break
I guess we all have a line to cross
Track Name: 100%
A warning has been placed on you
A wasted life is not true
You’re vacant and gone through
A past phase
A face turned blue
Who can’t say “I’ve got you”?
You’re vacant......vacant

Who can’t say “I’ve got you”?

Let us see, inside you
Vacate the lies, its not true
Love will stay, here for you

While we rot away, not afraid

A new day awaits your pain
Without it, you feel the same
Just fake it, they’ll stay away
The same day just slips on through
The decades wear on you
It’s breaking just stay away

Who can’t say “I’ve got you”?

Let us see, inside you
Vacate the lies, its not true
Love will stay, here for you

While we rot away, not afraid

A warning has been placed on you
A wasted life is not true
You’re vacant and gone through
A past phase
A face turned blue
Who can’t say “I’ve got you”?
You’re vacant and gone through
Track Name: Dark Ages
Let’s pretend our agenda fits this mold so well
There’s black and there’s white, and grey where we say it is
Cause there’s only room for us in morality
After all, ignorance is bliss, interpret and legislate life

Hard to see past this self-serving shadow
And we hear and say
And we’ve lost our way

And we’ve let it all permeate our skin and bones
Exist in a vice, sleeping on cold, hard stone
And all we pray for is vindication
After all, ignorance is bliss, interpret and contradict life

Can’t see past this self-serving shadow
And we hear and say
And we’ve lost our way

Ask and answer, it’s too late. There’s no going back now.
You’ve decided. It’s too late.

We’re falling apart now.
We’re falling apart now.
We’ve chosen this way now.
There’s no going back now.

And we hear and say
And we’ve lost our way
We’re not where we started from
Everything’s different
Everything’s different
Nothing’s exactly the same

We’ve thought it all through, haven’t we?
It’s all for the better, isn’t it?
Legislate life.
There’s black and there’s white.
There’s wrong and there’s right.
But always is grey where we say.

We’re falling apart now.
We’re falling apart now.
Track Name: The Grey Pt. 2
Always sitting here in the grey
