1. King of Sorrow (4:05)
I'm the angel of the dead.
Take a good look at me.
Grief is my guilty pleasure.
I'm taking comfort in your pain.
My happiness is your defeat.
Your heartache makes me feel so complete.
The compliments roll in and remind me I'm a good friend.
I'm here for you until the end.
Open the door.
Let me in.
I need you, and you need me too.
Open the door.
Let me in.
I am the king, king of sorrow.
Bow to me now.
Give me your tears.
I am the king, king of sorrow.
Rest assured that everything will be ok.
It's all going according to plan.
Let me speak for you in these times of dread.
I'll be your guide, now please just rest your head.
I am your dead ringer.
If it bleeds then it leads.
Misery loves company, and you've just met your match.
Open the door.
I'll leave you be.
Thank your for your sympathy.
Open the door.
I'll leave you be.
I am the saint of empathy.
Farewell.
I've consumed all that I need.
Farewell.
I am the saint of empathy.
2. Hero of the Half Truth (5:03)
Carry us from the brink.
Keep us from becoming extinct.
We let you into our worst nightmares, spouting fiction that left us cowered and scared.
Follow the guidelines, and you'll save our lives.
It's sad to see you’re quickly choking on your lies.
You vulture.
You’re choking on your lies.
You vulture.
We see through your disguise.
Wishing we could take it all back.
The beasts in your pack are the worst ones to attack.
We’ll change course and use a different track.
The beasts in your pack are the worst ones to attack.
They will show no mercy.
Abandonment harbors the most resentment.
If truth is the backbone you keep on bending it.
One day it will snap into pieces, so shattered you're never able to mend them.
They are broken.
You are broken.
Heads bowed before us.
The fearless crumble and crawl.
Asking forgiveness from all.
Use the anger, and direct it within.
This could have been prevented.
What was completely divided will come together united under the wings of a movement.
Wishing we could take it all back, change course, and use a different track.
We'll rip and shred every word you said.
We will show no mercy.
3. The Frost (4:46)
The cold comes with a sting, a sting across my hands, cracking and breaking like the weight upon my chest. It took me years to figure out it’s what I needed to survive. My resolve will be revived. I discovered the cure for my misery by spending time with the unforgiving, something so much more graceful than anything living. Alone with the wind is where I hide, as I find my place among the stars. This moment makes me feel alive. It's what I need to survive. Time stands still as my thoughts stop swimming. My muscles may ache, my tendons may break, but tearing myself down to nothing has allowed me to become something more than this. Something greater… This is where I may seem lost, but I promise you I'm more awake than ever. I'm facing up towards the never ending expanse, and finding my place among the stars. Alone with the wind is where I hide, as I find my place among the stars. This moment makes me feel alive. It's what I need to survive. Open soul, open mind. I'm finally focused on what's inside. I've gained a new perspective.
4. Lifeline (5:34)
Sometimes it's best to keep it all in.
Words carry no weight if the sincerity is questioned.
The kindest compliment can do the most damage when all it does is form an illusion.
Trapped inside an inflated sense of self worth, it will explode leaving nothing but the burns.
It will only get worse as it leads to hurt.
If there's no meaning there will be no inspiration.
Another missed chance at molding aspirations.
Don't look away from their eyes.
Everyone needs a restart from time to time.
Don't look away from their eyes, as you push and teach and criticize.
Let them fall.
Let them fail and feel the stings of failure.
Don't look away from their eyes.
A mistake is a chance to grow into something stronger and bolder than they may know.
They’ll learn to stand on their own.
They'll speak up when no one mutes their mouth.
Don't throw the lifeline if no one calls for help.
They'll speak up when no one mutes their mouth.
It means they're navigating for themselves.
Becoming self-sufficient is one of life's biggest missions.
Conflicts and stumbles are just obstacles towards making their own decisions.
Have more faith.
They can battle the elements.
Have more faith.
Don't be the detriment.
5. Invisible Enemy (4:37)
Wounded and tired and worried.  It's like fighting an invisible enemy. Wounded and tired and worried. What lies ahead you thought you'd never see. No one wants to end up in the clouds. You can't lose a battle you could never win. You can't finish a fight without the strength within. Beliefs set aside, the uncertainty is what's truly terrifying. Be scared or be brave. Where we end is all the same. Be scared or be brave. Memories are everything. Be scared or be brave. Reminiscing is for the living. Pain is setting in. It's surrounding us. Pain is surrounding us. Your quiet heart makes us sink further. We will accept our biggest fear. We're sinking further. Escape into thin air. You'll find relief in being lost
6. Quake (4:08)
Keep moving.
Keep breathing.
There's no time to rest your head.
Keep moving.
Keep breathing.
Sometimes help seems so hopeless.
Pack up your things.
Run for your lives in hopes of finding a place to hide.
The ground quakes.
The trees shake.
They uproot all you know.
The ground quakes.
The trees shake.
You can't make it on your own.
Imagine watching your heroes cower.
Your father’s face sinks lower as he tries to save you for one more hour.
Cover your tracks in the earth.
Let's hope they take the wrong turn.
From one torched home to another, could you understand the terror?
Watch them turn to ashes and disappear into the breeze.
Can you empathize with their bloodshot eyes?
They're fire red from the teardrops shed.
Can you empathize will all those who tried to pull their loved ones out of harms reach?
No, we have our own burdens to bear.
We have our burdens to bear.
Keep moving.
Keep breathing.
There's no time to rest your head.
Keep moving.
Keep breathing.
Sometimes help seems so hopeless.
With your gaze turned towards the west, we all turn the other way.
Relief is unattainable with these words no one will say.
The ground quakes.
The trees shake.
They uproot all you know.
The ground quakes.
The trees shake.
You can't make it on your own.
It's time to reclaim your home.
7. Coordinates (5:11)
Let go of all that you perceive.
Everything's not as it seems.
See today for what it is, not what it can give.
Make your way.
You’re lost within.
That's no way to live.
Good we've given, bad we've committed, but we believe we’re all forgiven.
The mark of a man is not where he stands when all is right in then world.
It's what he does when the chilling wind threatens to break down his door.
Inhale the bravery.
Exhale the worry.
His life on the edge, but his soul survives.
His sanity is stolen, but he's civil inside.
They hold his feet to the fire hoping he'll be inspired.
The rocks at the bottom will know your name.
Don't let shame replace who you'll be with who you are.
Contempt is a weak metal for building anything of wonder.
Ask a man on his deathbed what he truly believes.
He will say it's not the trophies or the places he's seen.
The unanswered questions leave the greatest impression.
Let go of all that you perceive.
Everything is not what it seems.
8. Generations (6:00)
I hate the way the weight of your decisions weigh upon me.
I won't carry them on my shoulders.
My knees may buckle, but my resolve is strong.
I am the future, and I'm here to prove you wrong.
You are concerned with dragging me down.
Everything in me won't let me drown.
What you decide has impact on you forever.
It will cave in on you forever.
You can't ignore what surrounds you forever.
What goes up must come down.
It's simple physics you see, the laws of gravity.
I'll stay above the water just to prove my persistence.
Holding on to my desire to improve our existence.
The remedy starts with me.
It's the logic we all need.
Take hold and accept it, if you want things to be different.
I'm waiting impatiently while your skin turns thin.
You can't ignore what surrounds you forever.
Soon enough it will all cave in.
Ideals built upon a weak base will slip away without a trace, like a house that's made of sand being torn to the ground by the waves.
I promise to always see things from a better perspective, one that won't block those who chose another direction.
This promise to myself, I won't let it go.
I'll stand up and take it all in.
With open arms, I'll accept what we've been given.
This promise to myself, I won't let it go.
9. Float (4:15)
This is where we start.
It's time to wake up the fire inside.
This is where we start.
Ignite your mind.
Open your eyes.
We all move like spirits in the wind.
We've been stripped of what used to be within.
If everyone had more soul maybe we would have more control.
We're the ones to blame if everything stays the same.
Where's the fire, the desire, an inherent right to stand up and fight?
It's time to set our blood to boil.
Feel the heat rise inside.
This is where we start.
It's time to wake up the fire inside.
This is where we start.
Ignite your mind.
Open your eyes.
Where did we go wrong?
You can't charge forward when your limbs will not listen.
You can't mount a comeback when you don't know what you’re missing.
It's apathy turned into atrophy.
A lesson learned in human anatomy.
This is where we start.
It's time to wake up the fire inside.
This is where we start.
Ignite your mind.
Open your eyes.
Change has never started with silence, so stop telling us to be quiet.
Wake up the fire inside.
Wake up.
It's time open your eyes.
10. Dangerous (4:23)
The end will come.
Some will say the end will come, but I know it's never ending.
Words give meaning to my thoughts.
What gives meaning to this feeling?
I know what I did.
I know what I said.
It's dangerous, so dangerous.
I've made friends with a stranger, and it's endangering us.
When what you love is taken away you realize what you're made of.
You’ll have to find your way.
You'll have to scream and claw at the air.
You strapped your pack to your back, and all the weight is yours to bear.
The help we find is the hope we need.
It's the hand that guides us back.
We can will ourselves to remember our word, but we all too quickly forget.
Along the way I got lost.
Now the way back home is overgrown.
This isn't an addictive thought.
It's a ravenous feeling.
Conviction must be greater than life's afflictions.
I follow in my own footsteps rather than following classical conditioning.
I wish I had the will to keep my word.
I’m looking back to face what's ahead.
It's dangerous.
I faced danger and it finally fled.
11. Carbon Copy (5:39)
This is our burden.
The pain we endure, we must carry it together.
It will soon become a memory.
It's staring us in the face, but we just turn the other way.
Take the easy route while millions of people's homes fall to the ground.
Merciless and unforgiving as it sets us back.
The truth could bury us all in the end.
You and I walk carefully as we lighten our step and hope our tracks just disappear.
We don't want to leave an imprint.
This can't be what we're known for.
I'll leave the world as it was given to me, flowing full of life and filled with diversity.
I can look with pride in my child's eyes, and he will know I helped preserve what may have died.
He will know what I've done.
We will look ahead.
The trail I've left won't lead the history books right back to me.
This generation won't let it all just slip away.
Don't let it slip away.
I'll walk forward and sense the ground beneath me.
The choice is mine.
I need to make the right one.
The earth may remember what we have done.
The choice is mine.
I need to make the right one.
