1. The Unveiling (1:56)
2. A Testament (3:17)
This is a testament to the ones that have made me see,
that the world is a place of deception. This memory stays.

My eyes are stained by the choices I made. This memory stays.
I try to wash 'em out because the sight sickens me to the bone.

This burden becomes me.
It's pulling me down to the depths.
this burden becomes me.
But the blame and the guilt, they belong to you.

Did you believe that there's nothing left.
Just turn your head when I know, so foolishly,
the person that you used to know was me.
Did you believe that there's nothing left
Just turn your head when I know, so foolishly,
the person that you used to know was me.

I bow to you.
I kneel in your shade.
I am right here.
So why the fuck would you want me to leave.

Cause in this mess, we need to face each other.
Mend the wounds, leave the past.
Because I have opened my mind
to say what's left unsaid.
This is a testament.

Never forgiving,
this person that I’ve become
will never be free.

Never forgiving,
this person that I've become
will never see the sunset.

Never, never again.
Never, never forget
the years that were lost.
3. Carte Blanche (3:46)
We’ve lived.
We’ve bled.
We are the ones you’ve left.
We’re lost,
dismissed.
We will remember this.

We are the answer to this lie.

We’ve lived.
We’ve bled.
We are the ones you’ve left.
We’re lost,
dismissed.
Now’s the time,
pay the fucking debt.

And I won’t let this pass,
the truth will always surface.

Don’t fear when you look in a coward’s eyes.
The wrong this is to never do anything.
We’ve let them leach of our backs too long,
let the world know we are the answer.

We’ve lived.
We’ve bled.
We are the ones you’ve left.
We’re lost,
dismissed.
We will remember this.

Save a prayer for integrity.
We’re down to nothing,
our hands are empty.
And was it even worth it, tell me?
Is the blood on your hands
worth its price in gold.

Make them pay! Time has come to make them pay!
Our hands are empty.

Don’t fear when you look in a coward’s eyes.
For we are justified.
4. A Shade of My Former Self (4:22)
Take another breath,
it's all over.
Why can't you just accept
it's all in your head.

Please someone tell me how to live,
because the thought is taking over me.

Oh what a night to remember, stricken down with emptiness.
So unfamiliar, so overwhelming.

Please someone tell me how to live,
because the thought is taking over me.

Wait for me, I’m not done denying.
Wait for me, I’ve lit the spark so help me.
Extinguish the fire,
extinguish the fire that burns within me.

What remains of me is a shade of my former self, colorless.
This will be the longest road you walk on.

Take another breath,
it's all over.
Why can't you just accept
it's all in your head.

Please someone tell me how to live,
because the thought is taking over me.
Please someone tell me how to live in this God forsaken place.

Cast a line and reel in gently.
Slowly, I take as I please.

I want it all, just take it, take it, as you please.
Take it, take it, as you please.

This is the fear, this is the fear, I have to live with.
All the mistakes, all of the pain that dwells within me.
Can you forgive, can you forgive my selfishness.

Give me your sorrows, we'll carry them. All back home, all back home.
Tell me your worries and let them go. All back home, back home again
5. The Enemy (4:12)
As the night enters this cold, dark day.
You tighten your grip around my waist.
I can’t seem to breathe anymore

Oh father help me,
I’ve been caught in a trap
and it seems I won’t get out alive.

Father help me
I’ve been caught in a trap
and it seems that I won’t get out alive.

And where words are restrained,
My eyes speak out.
But I could never reveal the oppression that shackles my mind.

Deafened ears to what I believe in.
You can’t build a foundation alone.
Deafened ears to what I believe in.
You can’t make up my life and call it your own.

So take your time and let me know
when you’re done wasting mine.
I’ve put my faith in us while you were
laughing at me, well now I can see.

All this time, asking respect and trust, well not anymore.
All my life, searching for someone and now I know, you’re not the one.

Only the weak trade pity for lust.
I found the hard way,
you are the enemy.

You are the enemy.

It’s plain to see you’re no part of the family.
I found the hard way,
you are the enemy.

It’s plain to see see you’re no part of the family.
I found the hard way,
you are the enemy.

And where words are restrained,
My eyes speak out.
But I could never reveal the oppression.

So take your time and let me know
when you’re done wasting mine.
I’ve put my faith in us while you were
laughing at me, well now I can see.

All this time, asking respect, and trust, well not anymore.
All my life, searching for someone and now I know, you’re not the one
6. Colorblind (3:12)
We all stand as one.

This is not a cause for misunderstanding.
Let our voices from the first to the last be
heard as one, and let them be righteous.

We declare this cause to let the world be colorblind.
So let the world be colorblind.
We declare this cause so raise your colors high.
Raise your colors high, make them fear your rise.

Take your stand with pride, in the face of the unforgiving.

So take your chance, tonight we’re breaking the ties, shake up the lies.
Won’t you aim your arrows high, open your eyes, it’s time to change this state of mind.

You are not alone.
Take the covers from your ears, take the blinders from your eyes.
Take the covers from your ears, and wake up to the sound of fearfulness.
Take the blinders from your eyes.

Fear not, for we are the difference.
If only you’d listen close.
It’s only a breath away.

So speak, what lies in your heart tonight.
You’ll know for it’s been inside.
All this time.
We all stand as one
7. In the Wake of Pride (1:42)
8. Living Saints (3:22)
We all live in this world from the years of beginning,
to learn each of us are breathing and caring.
When did we close our eyes?
This generation glorifies its narrow mind.

Guilt free and young.
Make way for the modern hollowness,
indifference.

Let the wake of pride shine upon us.

Will you look the other way?
We will face tomorrow from today.
Will you live in ignorance?
We will take our chances, come what may.

Let the wake of pride shine upon us
and lift our spirits beyond ourselves.
Beyond ourselves.

Selfishness breeds hate, so tell me are you selfish?

Empty lives.

Sick from the root with pride,
I’ve seen just what you all stand for.
Filled to the brim with spite,
I’ve seen just what you are.

Tell me, will you look the other way?
Will you live in ignorance, will you look the other way?

Empty lives

Sick from the root with pride,
I’ve seen just what you all stand for.
Filled to the brim with spite,
I’ve seen just what you are.
9. Heartless, Breathless (3:40)
Once again I find myself looking onto you.
While you’re laying here, passed out on this cold, dark floor.

Wake me up, someone pull the ground from under me.
Because this house of cards is collapsing.
Shallow by heart,
shallow by nature.
I’ve looked at the cracks in our foundation.

So did you ever stop to think
that we reap just what we sow.
And did you ever notice
that this road will lead to nothing
because I’ve given up on you.
And did you ever notice I’m not looking back?

The cold and bitterness surround me,
they feel just like the air that I breathe.
They say that home is where the heart is.
So tell me where to go, for I am heartless.

Reveal the secrets with truthfulness.
Teach me how to breathe, for I am breathless.

Once again I find myself looking onto you.
While you’re laying here, passed out on this cold, dark floor.

So did you ever stop to think
that we reap just what we sow.
And did you ever notice
that this road will lead to nothing,
because I’ve given up on you.
And did you ever notice I’m not looking back?

Hypocrites and liars, please raise your hands.
Hypocrites and liars, let me introduce myself.

I am the harvester, I am the righteous one.
Reaping the seeds you sow, till justice come.
10. Virtue of Leadership (3:34)
Madness for sheep to talk peace with a wolf.
You imprison yourself from the rest of the world.
Stand up, stand your ground!
You don’t know how it feels to be locked out.
Your coming to be, your coming to be; it is written in stone.
Leaders of tomorrow, I am calling for you.
Honesty, is just a matter of time.
Because reality is a matter of perception.
Is this what you call life? Or are you just existing?

Cause you have become someone I don’t know at all.
Is this what you call life? When you don’t live at all.
Someone I don’t know at all.
Is this what you call life? When you don’t live at all.
Never forget this, never forget this.
If you really want it. If you really want it, then what is your price?
Never forget this, never forget this.
If you really want it. If you really want it, then what is your price?
Is this what you call life?
Every step that you take, is another one away from the heart
11. A New State of Mind (4:03)
Forcing your thoughts on others, has never worked.
Even fools should know, fools should know.
Taking steps to prove your lack of judgement.
Onto better days, these better days must come.

Did you ever realize that eyes will see.
Only when you use your mind, set it free.

Now you’ve turned it all around on me?

I never saw this coming.
I never saw this one coming.

Now you’ve turned it all around on me

I will never forget.
Now I’m the cause of it all.

The days turned to night as we were reaching for the world.
Believing without knowing, what tomorrow will bring.
Believe it.

Here in our darkest moments,
we see the brightest lights.
Give us sense and purpose,
another state of mind.

Do you really think I’m moving on, while I’m still standing here?
Do you really think I forgot about who we were?

Through the darkest nights,
we’ll stand ignited.

I hope you know
the fire’s burning.

Does it hurt
when you see us passing by?
we’ll give respect,
once you fucking earn it.
12. Deliverance (4:16)
Cast onto this soil for no reason.
Life seems to sprout with no underlying meaning.
Locked in a constant struggle with impending mortality.

Withering souls,
thou shalt cast an offspring.
Cast unto its fate.
We will denounce anyone who questions the will of the great.

Seek no more, we have all the answers one could ever wish to possess.
Seek no more, we have all the answers.
So get on your knees, my child, and start to confess.

This is the death of reasoning.
Divide and conquer the blind.
But in our hearts we know that we are one.

This is the death of reasoning.
Confine and bury your mind.
When in our hearts we know that we are one.

We are one.

In search of safety,
in lifeless numbers and half hearted sermons.
Will we ever be renegades?
Pick it up!

Trusting your own understanding means finding a path worth believing.
The word of your chosen one will not always lead you towards

deliverance.

show me the answers, oh, deliverance. Show me the answers.

Withering souls, am I forsaken?
Condemned to a life without a meaning?

Life and death will intertwine,
leading me astray from all I know.
