Track Name: Gate of Sorrow
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
Track Name: Sinister Sides
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
Track Name: Waiting on Tomorrow
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
Track Name: Dead to the World
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
Track Name: Blind to Fate
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
Track Name: The Tempest
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
Track Name: Battle Line
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
