The Wandering tracks

Lyrics


1. INTUITIONS

I saw the end
I felt the world fall down on me
This life will be the death of us
Was this victory gained out of too great a cost?
We've hurt so many
I've hurt too many
In the name of false friendships and loves that never last
My chest is empty and black
Fighting for feeling, my hands are stained with filth and red with guilt
My heart is lost in the pursuit of success,
Help me
Help us, I've hurt so many on the name of loves lost
Help me
Help us, I've hurt so many in the name of loves lost




2. PROCESS OF DROWNING

Bleeding over phone lines
Voice and vibration spilled like rain on broken pavement
And you have fallen, fallen from grace
By fair-weather friends
Wolves in white wool baying
Now you're dead in my eyes
Always begging for more
More blood more saltine tears
More sweat off the brows of desperate men
Cut to the bone by these thorns

Bleeding over phone lines
Voice and vibrations, I still, I still feel, as if I let you die
This machine is a rusted quest gone dry
I feel submerged in this flesh covered vessel
You take the knife and you slice to the core
Remove my heart that tears oxidized to orange
I'm broken and you fucking know it
You turned your backs on me, you turned your backs on us
You turned your backs on us, brotherhood took its own life Seeing the pain it bred
You turn your back on me

Bleeding over phone lines
Voice and vibration spilled like rain on broken pavement
And you have fallen, fallen from grace
By fair-weather friends
Wolves in white wool, baying
Now you're dead in my eyes




3. INVICTUS, UNCONQUERED

You should have killed me when you laid me low
You, you should have stayed to my last breath
Cast down to ashes, bones broken and heart removed I was tramped underfoot and barely breathing
These scars run deep
Questioning fate I stared up at the sky

Waiting for the darkness to pull me in
"please take me" I whispered
Get up, give me your hand
I will remove you from this four walled hell
If you would only try, give me your hand
I will pull you from within yourself
Bandage your scars and give you back your will

Now scream at the sky, so loud at the stars
Now prove to them
You're still alive(I will pull you from within yourself) You're still alive (I will remove you from this fucking Hell)

Now scream out the lies(so to force this poison from your bones)
"Please take me" I whispered
Get up give me your hand
Now scream at the sky
Now scream at the stars
I scream at the sky




4. IN TRENCHES

Like Judas, A true friend will stab you in the chest
They want to see your eyes widen with disbelief
When the blade pierces your foolish trusting heart
When you fall to the floor
In what moment did I become the victim,
Left beaten on enemy soil? Is this the thanks I am given?
When did I become the villain that deserves whatever violent end is afforded me?

The knife in my backs inscription still reads
"I love you, you're like a brother to me."
I watch you smile sickly standing over me.
"You had this coming, now choke on your last breath!
You had this coming."
I knelt and said
Motherfucker
(For years I've wanted what you had, that warmth and light I could never reach. I wont have to take it from you, It will gladly leave)
I will gladly leave, you were
"You're like a brother to me,
I'll slowly corrupt and use it against you!
I don't have to take it from you. It will gladly leave"
The knife in my backs inscription still reads "
I love you, you're like a brother to me."
I watch you smile sickly, standing over me.




5. LOST AT SEA

(Instrumental)




6. SACHAEL

The surface seems miles away
The faces on the sea floor smile
And welcome me as a brother, faintly through the thunder of the waves, a voice I know
She came to me, calling, assuring me these waves are not my home
"You are meant for more, this is not your time, turn from this shroud."
"These grey faces anchored to the bottom, spoke lies to mislead you!
You don't belong here, you never did
Anchors at your feet bare no hold on you!"
"You don't belong here, and you never will
This is not your home! Come to my voice!"
I am alive, I am more than mere motion!
Made for more, now closer to whole!
I am alive, I am more than just motion, closer to whole

You were meant for more (You were meant for something more) I will pull your heartbeat away from the storm (pull these anchors from my feet)
You were meant for more (you were meant for something more) I can feel the waves break as I return to shore (Now closer to whole)

The tide was harsh and unforgiving.
I capsized as black water engulfed me
Whole with these anchors at my ankles
I said goodbye to the glimmering light!
"You don't belong here, you never will!
This is not your home, come to my voice"

You were meant for more! I will pull your heartbeat away from the storm (Pull these anchors from my feet)
You were meant for more (You are meant for something more) I can feel the waves break as I return to shore (Now closer to whole)
I am alive, I am more than mere motion
Made for more
Now closer to whole
I am alive, I am more than just motion
Closer to whole





7. GAMORRAH REBORN

I'd rather spend a lifetime in hell
Before I'd suffer one day of filth in this false paradise Open your eyes!
This is no way to live your life!
Open your eyes
This place has no soul
Spill your pockets on worthless chance!
This is where dreams die!
Somewhere among the sand and snakes
Someday they may find a piece of you to
Give to your children, what happens here, never stays here But you left part of your soul in that desert
What happens here, never stays here
You left part of your heart on the table

This is where your dreams will die!
This place is evil
Every stone and shining light
This place is evil
They sell themselves for nothing
What happened here came home
This curse came back with you




8. LAGRANGE POINTE

(Instrumental)




9. THE WANDERING

They told me
"Son, you can never go home again
Everything that you love will have changed
All you know will be new and foreign."
But in my heart I swore I had the strength,
For this many nights I have only dreamed of one thing
A warm bead and a warmer embrace old into them
But the flood overtook me like time never happened
Please give me peace from the endlessness of this dark road
Give me peace
Please give me shelter in this, the coldest of hells
Please call me back home
You have turned your back on me! When I say I'm leaving You're leaving for good! This is for me, not anyone else
Now rip your own heart out so you can know how it felt
You're gone for good
Now rip your own heart out so you can see how it felt! Please give me a place to rest my head!
I can feel it now, we aren't meant to be known!
Forever wandering upon trackless seas
Please give me peace from the endlessness of this dark road!
Where do you go?
No place is home
I wander




10. POLARIS BREACH

You wear the fucking mask of a man
And you call yourself a friend
Open your mouth and deceive
The lies don't suit you
There are no friends within this guild of thieves

None will share your loyalty
Your possessions are worthless favors from the heart
A promise and a lie
It's all the same

There are no pacts between lions and their prey
Did you think you were special to me?
Wear the mask of a man
Do you call yourself a friend?

There are no pacts between lions and their prey
Did you think you were so special?

A snake is still a fucking snake

You wear the fucking mask of a man
And you call yourself a friend
Open your mouth and deceive
The lies don't suit you
There are no friends within this guild of thieves

You can choose to betray your true nature
You can go ahead and choose to betray yourself
And wallow in your fucking filth





11. OBSTRUCTION

The man's face contorts into a new shape that resembles concern
He has delivered the same news a hundred times
And it grows less compassionate with each new played out telling
The form before him disgusts him
And the noise comes from a place of complete disdain
These words spill from him now...
"This could kill you"
God, what have I done to deserve this new plague that won't leave me?
(These holes through the core of me)
What was a dull ache now could be the death of me
What was once a dull ache
These holes through the core of me, could gradually become the death of me
