1. With A Thousand Words to Say But One (4:22)
And to reflect is to regret throwing it all away
And apathy, my one way street, it took so much from me
Separated by this divide I created through my fears
And in your tears you tried to show blind eyes and tell deaf ears
If we can make it through the landslide standing
We'll lift each other up to see the bliss on the horizon
Been looking in from the outside lately
I've seen who I used to be and it's not me
And we can keep healing
And we can keep holding on
I just want to take you where our time won't waste anymore
Through the mountains on the water
We'll stay engulfed in one another
And when I can wake up to see the sunrise in your eyes
Then we'll finally be free and I'll know I've made it home
So let's go out west and bask in the overcast
And walking through the rain we'll see the beauty in life again
2. Convalescence (4:12)
It's been a long night waiting to sleep the day away
And it's been a long time coming along with me every step of the way
Oh confinement binds you
Nothing scares me, nothing thrills me
I've fooled myself into believing
That nothing ails me, nothing kills me
And stagnant time is a breeding ground for regrets and wrongdoings
And resolutions take their time
That is if they even come at all
Always seeking redemption
Through the echoes I've listened and still came up missing
These wounds will heal and nothing can stop me now
3. This Will Outlive Us (3:48)
Gone are the days of evasion
Existence is how you create it
Whatever compels you to keep on, embrace it
So long as the missing piece of the puzzle split down the middle
We had better prepare ourselves for perpetual winter
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Continuous escape, a living hell
Like those other lovers hidden under the covers
It's so empty in the arms of another
See what you've done?
You're irresistible with your sordid stories
The morbid glory of it all
Remember when times were worth celebrating
Pour the wine for fallen friends and foes
Singing in unison
My hell is a blank piece of paper staring back at me
My hell is wasted potential haunting me
4. Sound the Surrender (3:41)
This moment marks the severing of senses
Comatose distinctions
The gathering of flies on an irrational mind filled with broken conviction
I've seen how lies take form in your eyes
Your suspicious ways followed a hollow gaze
You fucking left me to rot
But one day you'll see first hand how I've paid for your biggest mistake
Sound the surrender
Embraced in vain
What will you gain from this? What will you lose?
Secrets hidden behind your back
Your silence, it serenades deceit
Secrets hidden behind your back
Your forever ideal fantasy
Sound the surrender
You have gained all you could from this
Sound the surrender
But you've lost the only one
5. Pathos (1:34)
6. Low (3:04)
Injected venom sucking the life from us
Away for 80 days
It's white noise, just white noise
Staying awake for the music's sake
They say they listen but never hear a thing
Mass deception, illlusion, deception
We say they listen to white noise
Can this really be our time?
Are we found to find the line?
Disilusion me again
Can we really be the only ones who see this charade?
The meaning is fleeting
All these egos competing, searching for an identity through series of misleading
Disillusion me again
7. Ethos (1:21)
8. District Divided (2:28)
We are the expatriated, our fate cards have played us
Neighbors displaced us
We've seen that these demographics are targets shot down by the market
I've felt the wrath of the greedy, now complete with more yellow monsters
I've seen the needs of a city completely ignored, surrounded by vultures
We are now the sons and the daughters expecting betrayal, neglecting our passions
We know your plans don't include us
That's why we've made our own destroyers of culture
Insatiable, their appetite, the gluttons who consumed their way to the top
9. These Fevered Times (3:09)
My heart's been racing wiht my mind to the finish line
Of these fevered times struck down again
This turbulence has overcome tranquility
Pounding the walls inside, these thought's I can't control
And shooting through my veins these heightened senses overwhelming
Confusion replaces clarity, a neurotic rearrangement
You know the feeling
When down feels up to its old tricks again so misleading
When it hits like a ton of bricks to the chest
Out of breath on the bathroom floor
And I'll make light of this night and night of this day
It's what I tell myself to sleep when I dream myself awake
10. Paradise (3:44)
After midnight's glow and morning's gloom has settled in it's self-inflicted sense of self-loating
Waking up from the longest dream where we're all running away
It's a sobering experience
Still sinking, still spinning, still hanging by a thread
I've been thinking I'll stop wasting the days away and make life worth living
Controlling these demons and stopping sirens from screaming
Lapsing in and out of this great escape
A love-hate relationship, we're all stuck in our ways
And as we drown every day
We revel in our self-indulgence and wonder why we feel so trapped
In our bodies, in our rooms, in our cities with our words
11. Tranquil (6:22)
This decaying flesh is coming back to life
Reanimate me, give me a chance
And I'll be right here where the sun hits the sea
Watching these waves wash the pain away
And it will radiate so brilliantly that we can keep pushing on And get on with life cause we deserve it
Now I know that the worst part is behind us
Now onward and upward we take flight
On bruised and battered wings we soar above our clouded thoughts
Never looking back, we can regain a sense of balance that's been gone so long
Give me a chance to reason with the odds, to pick myself back up
Regain a sense of balance gone so long
