1. By Way of Choice (3:33)
Feel the eyes on me
You stare, I question
A judgement
Judgement of me
What are you thinking?
What do you see?
What are your thoughts?
A perception
Perception of me

No disguising
No denying
What you are
What you are
No falsifying
Why you hiding
What you are
What you are

Don't want what you've got
Stale, mundane and limited
Keep your words
To yourself
Unnecessary views and opinions
Won't hinder my vision
Don't see it from your view

No disguising
No denying
What you are
What you are
No falsifying
Why you hiding
What you are
What you are

I believe in my way
No one can take it from me
I believe in my way
No one can take it from me
From me

Nothing to hide from me

What you are
What you are
2. Prepare to Fall (3:25)
Is your life all that you've designed?
Do you look for something more to come along?

Climb to the top of something
That's not there
Take a look at what you view as important

How far do you think you'll go?
What means? I don't know?
Is there worth in what you say?
What means is your way?

Are you one, whose out for yourself?
What's gained when you step on those beneath you?

Climb to the top of something
That's not there
Reassess what you view as important

When you come to realise
What you've missed
You planned
You played
You failed

Using all that you think you have
To get ahead of the rest
No sign of consideration
Or honesty at best
3. A Vigil for the Lost (5:09)
Was it all meant to be?
On the way you were
Taken from all

Without warning you're gone
Without reason life,
Flashed before you

Never meant to be
The final
Place of rest
Place of rest

By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside
We're left wondering
By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside

All that you've left behind
Grieving, mourning
Search for answers

So tell me who's to blame
Life somehow never
Be the same

There's no way for us
To change this fate
Cards that we're dealt
We must take

By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside
We're left wondering
By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside

Was it meant to be?
How did this occur?
Was it meant to be?
Will we ever know?
Is there reason
Reason

By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside
We're left wondering
By the roadside
Lost souls wandering
By the roadside
4. At Ease (1:32)
5. Shifting Focus (4:00)
Observe, all that surrounds us
In the end it won't mean a thing
Consumed and drawn in by
The ways of control
Short term thoughts of regress

What's done is done
No longevity
Is it part of the process?

Is it evolution in values?
Downgrading to a lower level
Do we prepare for the worst?
A new kind of fear is felt
Amongst us all
We're facing time ahead unknown

What's done is done
No longevity
Repeating the times gone by
What's done is done
No stability
This we must answer

What's waiting for us?
The end?
I don't know?
With a need to discover
The keys that we hold
What's waiting for us?
The end?
I don't know?
With a need to discover
The keys that we hold

As we wait for the dust to settle
On covered grounds of yesterday
Disturbing thoughts of future prospects
Will we ever learn?

What's our direction?
6. The Meaning Unseen (5:22)
Want to get through it
Make it out the other side
Unclear of meaning
Unsure of what
Where's it coming from?
Where does it come from?
Try to get myself back

Get to the root of it all
Need to know the reasons and why
Ride it out
See through this fear
Ride it out

Confusion, despair and panic
Overloaded with thoughts
Feeling helpless
Where's it coming from?
Where does it come from?
Am I failing to keep it together?

Through this time
Somewhat lost
Meaning unseen
Meaning unseen
7. Beside Yourself (4:59)
Looking through the eyes
Looking through the eyes
Void of emotion
Leaving you open
Taking you apart
Apart

I see no one standing in front of you
I see no one holding you down
The struggle you have inside of you
What keeps holding you down?
Beside yourself
You stand

Another point to reach
Escape your mind
A peace you long to find
To find

I see no one standing in front of you
I see no one holding you down
The struggle you have inside of you
What keeps holding you down?
Beside yourself
You stand

Don't give up on what your life's offering
Putting yourself through this suffering
Don't give up on what your life's offering
Putting yourself through this suffering
Suffering

Hope for another day
To settle you inside
A peace you long to find
To find

I see no one standing in front of you
I see no one holding you down
The struggle you have inside of you
What keeps holding you down?
Beside yourself
You stand

Don't give up on what your life's offering
Putting yourself through this suffering
Don't give up on what your life's offering
Putting yourself through this suffering
Suffering
8. Todoroki (2:07)
9. Divided (3:59)
The wrong result is carried out
Both sides are faced with loss
Standstill of time and reflection
What lies ahead amidst it all

The outcry
The outrage
A life left in the balance
The outrage
The outcry
Still a life is yet to serve

With all the blame and untold truth
There is so much left to prove
Stuck in no man's land
With all the cover ups and lies, lies
Silently waiting

They've made you
Accept the acts of others
In a circumstance
Beyond your control
Your innocence means nothing

In a system that has failed
Somehow you can't turn it around
The other side still suffering
While feeling their loss
An uncertain future lies ahead
All those affected
Need their questions answered
To somehow turn it around

Turn it around

Someone must pay the price
Someone will pay the price
Someone must pay the price
Someone will pay the price

With another statistic
Unable to speak, speak, speak
Another receiving the blame
Predicament such as this
Makes you want to question it

The outcry
The outrage
A life no longer in the balance
The outrage
The outcry
The wrong life is now left to serve
10. Communion (Armoured Angel cover) (4:34)
When the idea came to do a cover tune,
Armoured Angel was our instant choice.
We've being fans of their music and had the privilege of watching them live over the years. This track was taken from their 1990 demo Communion. We've tried our best to capture the same rawness and spirit we heard through their music; we hope this justifies the legacy of these unsung Australian Metal Legends from Canberra
11. Relate (4:17)
What did you need from me?
What did you really want?
I gave all I could give
But it was not enough
I tried to look to the future
With your eyes
Now the flame has burnt out
To nothing
Nothing at all

Where did it all go wrong?
Empty chance of correction
No answers or reasons to find
Once so solid
Now a broken connection

Fight, fight, fight
What do we need to do?
Fight, fight, fight
What did I mean to you?

Put things into perspective
Reinvention of sorts
Cycle of repetition
Life continues on
As it does!

Fight, fight, fight
What do we need to do?
Fight, fight, fight
What did I mean to you?
