1. BURN IT ALL

Open the door and the light washes in.
Say what you will, I won't believe it anymore.
Everything's gone, I'm not where I belong,
It's the end of the song ... Because I'm free now.

I broke the chain from my neck,
Torn away from that which binds.
Never will I be the one to believe in nothing...
Because I'm free.

Unexcused, unabsolved,
I am alone but unafraid.
Undermined, undercut,
You can't undo what I have made

Unexplained, unresolved,
Is it worth the price I have paid.
Understand.... I'll burn it all.

Risen from ashes my life can begin.
Try what you will you can't resist it anymore.
Everything's wrong, misconception is gone,
I am where I belong... And I am free now.

I bear the wounds on my backĀ…
Scars untold within my mind.
Ever will I be the one who will stop at nothing...
To remain free.

Unexcused, unabsolved,
I am alone but unafraid.
Undermined, undercut,
You can't undo what I have made

Unexplained, unresolved,
Is it worth the price I have paid.
Understand.... I'll burn it all.

I'll burn it all.

Unexcused, unabsolved,
I am alone but unafraid.
Undermined, undercut,
You can't undo what I have made

Unexplained, unresolved,
Is it worth the price I have paid.
Understand.... I'll burn it all.




2. NUCLEUS

To negate and neutralize we must lose all.
Integrate into one
Metamorphic reaction.
All will fade...all but one.
Evolution has begun.

The delta over time will yield truth.
Integrate into one
Metamorphic reaction.
All will fade...all but one.
Evolution has begun.

At the core...I am whole.




3. BEYOND RECALL

Confused, condemned, detained.
Interred, entombed, restrained.
Contract, collapse, divide.
Expand, explode, collide.

I brought this
All on myself.
It brings me.

Back down to this place
Again for the last time.
I can't survive this again.

Contract, collapse, divide.
Expand, explode, collide.

I brought this
All on myself.
It brings me.

(x3)
Back down to this place
Again for the last time.
I can't survive this again.




4. DUST AND ASHES

Collective sorrow
Imprinted on us all
Manifests to break the will
As a hammer to the skull

Resist reprisal of no consequence
Finite existence dust and ashes (Remain)

Corrosive pathos
Now drowning in the wake
Unafraid to face the truth
No fate but what we make

(x2)
Resist reprisal of no consequence
Finite existence dust and ashes (Remain)




5. SILENCE
I welcome shades of grey openly
Anachronistic life unending
Unnecessary strain compounding
The failing cognition resounding

I hate what I become
When all I have is this
And the weight collapses me
As the numbness hits
I fail again to break the fall

I'm here all alone wondering how it all will end
Fighting in vain as into the darkness I descend
Waiting for light that I know i'll never see
Desperate for silence once again

Asphyxiating will incarnate
The hope of amnesty discarded
I hate what I have done to build the emptiness
Into walls I can't unmake and the prison fits
I fail again to break the fall

(x2)
I'm here all alone wondering how it all will end
Fighting in vain as into the darkness I descend
Waiting for light that I know i'll never see
Desperate for silence once again

Desperate for silence (I am) (x2)
Desperate for silence once again




6. APEX REALIZED

At the edge strike the heart
To the core (I feel it).
Merciless I let slip
Dogs of war (and I feel it)

Slowly drown in this cell
I have wrought (I feel it).
Someone else
Forgive me
I cannot.

Stone by stone I build day by day,
Until such time as I must pay.
One by one the thoughts fade away to nothing.
I'm left with this;
The apex realized.

Slowly drown in this cell
I have wrought (I feel it).
Someone else forgive me
I cannot.

(4x)
Stone by stone I build day by day,
Until such time as I must pay.
One by one the thoughts fade away to nothing.
I'm left with this;
The apex realized.

8. UNBREAKABLE

Complete what I may
On this last of all days
Unmake errors committed to stone
Headfirst into the nightmare unknown

Reckoning here at last
From the feast to the fast
Wretched soul come and passed
I am again unbreakable

Rebuild what was lost
Blood spent meaningless as a cost
Construct of control wrought by my hand
Battered and broken alone I stand

Reckoning here at last
From the feast to the fast
Wretched soul come and passed
I am again unbreakable

I am again unbreakable (x2)
