1. Cornerstone of Misery (4:19)
Well once again...
We set sail toward the sky (The Sky with wings of lead)
From frozen cliffs with wings of lead (We Find Ourselves)
And we find ourselves once more (back where we began)
The cornerstone of misery…

I am ready to breathe again
If I had a million last words to tell you

These words are the end of the solitude
Which held fast for so long inside
This cold shell of a human being

They could never be adequate
They could never hold true
So I’m left dreaming of angels
Weaving a symphony (In blue skies)
I Dream of angels (these are the dreams you inspire)
Weaving a symphony in blue skies
Well once again
Well once again

We set sail toward the sky (The Sky with wings of lead)
From frozen cliffs with wings of lead (We Find Ourselves)
And we find ourselves once more (back where we began)
The cornerstone of misery...

Those torn wings which grounded me for so long
Have been given new life
So now I can fly with you as we cry
For joy while staring at the sun
Nothing can be as bright as this today
No star can shine so beautifully tonight

We Find Ourselves…
Back where we began…
We Find Ourselves…
Back where we began…
We Find Ourselves…

Well once again...
We set sail toward the sky (The Sky with wings of lead)
From frozen cliffs with wings of lead (We Find Ourselves)
And we find ourselves once more (back where we began)
The cornerstone of misery…
The Sky with wings of lead
We Find Ourselves
2. Severence (5:11)
This silence just became disconcerting
And I am more than worried...I...
Try to steal glances through the smoke
But I...I...find that
I’m collapsing on the table amidst it all

Staring at exit signs
Until my eyes bleed green and white
Staring at exit signs
Until my eyes bleed green and white

Feeling the warmth drain from within
Watching my face contort
In the blood spill
Watching my face contort

The silence just became disconcerting
And I am more than worried
(I feel the warmth) Worried about
(Drain from within) The state of
My severed hands

I guess that I’m...falling out of touch...
I guess that I’m...falling out of touch...

Feeling the warmth drain from within
Watching my face contort
In the blood spill
Watching my face contort

The silence just became disconcerting
And I am more than worried
(I feel the warmth) Worried about
(Drain from within) The state of
My severed hands

I’m still trying to steal stares with glances
Still dying to be so close to...
Severance...Severance
Still dying to be so close
To Severance
I see my face contort

The silence just became disconcerting
And I am more than worried
(I feel the warmth) Worried about
(Drain from within) The state of
My severed hands
3. Empires Laid Waste (3:08)
I can’t prolong the inevitable anymore…
The hidden empire inside our hearts
We built, we burnt, and we laid…we laid waste
To every dream and we gave flight to this ending
It’s so hard to turn around
Without even understanding the fall...

To break our wings, to burn our dreams
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, fear, and regret!

Set fire to the way we were and forget everything
Set fire to the way we were and forget everything
When every stone is turned
When every stone is turned looking for an escape
There’s not too much left anyway
There’s only so far you can travel with stars in your eyes

The hidden empire inside our hearts
We built, we burnt, and we laid…we laid waste
To every dream and we gave flight to this ending
It’s so hard to turn around
Without even understanding the fall…

There’s only so far you can travel with stars in your eyes
Before you burn them out and lose sight
Before you break down
Before you break down and take it all in your stride
A life lost, and the fall of an empire
4. Atlantic (3:49)
This is not who I am, I’m still hiding
I’m waiting in my own reflection
Hands shaking with anxiety
Heart beating out of time

Only I can hear my breath at night
This is not who I was hoping to become
This shell of a man
This dark exterior given to
Stormy moods and quiet, lonely tears
This is not who I was hoping to become
This shell of a man
(My Hands are shaking with anxiety)
This dark exterior...

Only I can hear my breath at night
This is not who I was hoping to become
This shell of a man
This dark exterior given to
Stormy moods and quiet, lonely tears

Steal this night from me
Take it and make it your own

These are not the nights I wish for
These nights are cold and unrelenting
These nights are depressing
These nights bring knives
So as they can carve themselves into my memory
Leave me here alone
Kill the breeze on your way out
And let me ferment in my own self-pity
Let me ferment, let me ferment in my own self-pity

These are not the nights I wish for
These nights are cold and unrelenting
These nights are depressing
These nights bring knives
These nights bring knives

Leave me here alone…
Leave me here alone…

Kill the breeze on your way out
And let me ferment in my own self-pity
5. Black & Collapsed (3:52)
Not a word, not hello
Nor how are you, nothing
No response, I’ve been eradicated
I’ve been erased, and now…
Whispers would sound like screams at
This point in time

In short, I would say, I would say its over, time to go
This time I’ll try tear out the heart and cut off the limbs…
I would say, I would say
I’ve been here before and tried to drown it, this time I...

How this place became so barren
And frozen in such a small period is beyond me

I thought there was warmth
I thought stupidly that this would
Farewell to everything, this world has done to me
Turns out I’m going to fit in just fine

In short, I would say, I would say its over, time to go
This world is dead to me turns out
I’m going to fit in just fine
I would say, I would say its over, time to go
I’m going to cut my arms open and pull at the heartstrings-

Attached to my hands until they snap and die
That must be the way
Everything I touch falls to pieces…
Everything I love turns a blind eye

Farewell to everything, this world is dead to me
Turns out I’m going to fit in just fine
I’m going to cut my arms open and pull
At the heartstrings attached to my hands
Until they snap and die
That must be the way
Everything I touch falls to pieces
Everything I love turns a blind eye

I…Hate this place I’m in and I…
I only wanted to love…
But it is not enough…

I hate this place I’m in and
I only wanted to love but it is not enough…
6. Prometheus (4:49)
Undeserving...
This morning will take my arms and wrap them twice
And steal every tear from my, from my eyes

This morning will take my arms
And wrap them twice around my body
And steal every tear from
Every tear from my eyes

This morning will take my arms and wrap them twice
And steal every tear from my, from my eyes

Undeserving of these arms…
Undeserving of your embrace…
This morning will go down
As one of the worst, in the cold comfort of my room

This night is young
Even though the stars have followed their paths
Across the night across the night sky
This night has warmed my heart

This night is young
Even though the stars have followed
Their paths across the night sky
This night has warmed my heart
And now as my lips are still burning hot from your touch
I close my eyes in anticipation of the dreams
That are sure to follow your departure
This night and every other belong to you...
They belong to you

I close my eyes...
This morning will take my arms and wrap them twice
And steal every tear from my, from my eyes
This morning will take my arms and wrap them twice
And steal every tear from my, from my eyes
