Sinister Sides

Gate of Sorrow Lie awake for hours with just my thoughts No solace awaits from the horror Inside my mind, a parasite Contracts its bind on the host How am I to survive? I don't know I can’t take anymore I’m sinking low I’ve shut down Can’t see light anymore Colors fade out Opportunity lost I'm not going to make it Take it slow I’m sinking low I used to crave a life full of meaning Truth from a lie’s what I’m bleeding Relegated now to life in limbo Can’t live another day with this sorrow Surrender all the dreams of tomorrow Pushing up against an unstoppable force

Sinister Sides No light will cast upon you No way to sense the day Shadows don't form around you Been overcast by shade It’s just a matter of time before you know Sinister sides Dusk has descended upon you Right now there’s no escape But like a figure silhouetted in the darkness Blacked out it still remains It’s just a matter of time before you know Sinister sides She shows in a mystic light She glows in the black of night

Waiting on Tomorrow Rider passed on the open road Not the slightest glance in your rearview mirror Sliding by the blurring signs No time to stop ‘til your destination It’s not what it seems Each moment only borrowed Just out of reach Waiting on tomorrow Mile a minute, day by day Keep pulling into nowhere, with nothing to say Dance along the edge of a dream Up ahead things seem much clearer It’s not what it seems Each moment only borrowed Just out of reach Waiting on tomorrow You're not alone I can't seem to bring my thoughts back home

Dead to the World Twisting up words so we can't understand them Talking in tongues like a freak Claiming you want what is best for the people But your ego is blind to what’s seen Lining the pockets, protecting the interests Of moguls and magnates and heirs While all of us poor paltry peasants Keep your gold-plated plane in the air Your lies will start to unfurl Our life is dead to the world The oligarchy must crumble You can’t be trusted to lead Obfuscating your motives Are driven by power and greed Agitating and threatening our allies You act like a game is at hand But you’re dressed in the emperor's clothing And we're the laughingstock of the land Your lies will start to unfurl Our life now dead to the world A con is in play Common people will pay Yet most of them won’t see it before it’s too late They march for their rights Liberation in sight All the while their armies marshal financial strikes And on and on it goes

Blind to Fate Soul has died in a state of grace Stripped and lost from liberty Building walls of insularity Constructing false securities They wait all night at the door The need for grace only grows There’s no escaping Stark denial bent to rage Purified by those who gave Hopeless journey for most awaits A tragedy of amnesty They wait all night at the door The need for grace only grows There’s no escaping Luck now shards of a mirror Hope now meaningless lies Couldn’t be any clearer Right there in front of your eyes, but like… Darkness conjured and cast to the night A dead star fallen unseen Fate turns blind to peril and plight A nightmare crushing a dream

The Tempest 04:49
The Tempest Waves beneath the surface Winds from darker times Clouds of a thousand nightmares Roll thunder though my mind Words once free and flowing Turned guarded and unkind They form the storm that breaks the shore around them Black tide The undertow of what was known will drown you Once queen, now ruthless slayer Brings tempest to the seas Conscripts the willing sailor And brings him to his knees Be wary on these waters! Keep watch from every side The chart your heart once followed now forsaken Black tide The undertow of what was known will drown you She will beg you for all you can be As you bargain for your liberty She will break you then she’ll cast you away The tempest lives for the darkest of days I have fallen, into the eye of the storm Tempest…vile tempest

Battle Line 05:22
Battle Line Evening casts a blood red glow Across the camp, hate’s burning in their eyes Fires, now scorching, smoke haze fills the sky Wait ‘til the battle line’s been crossed Wait for the first stone to be tossed Father, sits waiting, prepares himself to die Back home a baby cries Mother, soothes it for tonight Wait ‘til the battle line’s been crossed Wait for the first stone to be tossed Battle line, the battle line Emboldened by their leader’s cry Will fall to dust upon the breath of lies Now dreaming of a slaughter, killing sons and daughters…tonight Paranoia twists within their minds Breeding evil thoughts along both sides Arms united, beseeched to fight Battle blades adorn the battle line
