Track Name: Cataclysm
Instrumental
Track Name: Status
Dark, still is the sound
Eyes, red break the blackness
This heart, sustained
Cleansing the dirty, the stained

Rise, above all the weak
This work, nothing yet complete
And I feel that
And I think that
And I know that I'm gonna

Live forever
Track Name: Perpetual Loss
I can feel the air, pressing me down
It's hot and we can't breathe
The light is so bright, it burns out our eyes
It sears off our skin
I watch you fade away, shatter like glass
With empty eyes
A warm wave washes us away
A final goodbye

Fade out, lights out
Stay close to me love
We'll brave this fire on our knees
Ashes to ashes
Life to dust
Someday to rise
Like a flame

We've built this fate
From science and god, an alchemy of fear
A race of billions too blind to see
Too fucking deaf to hear
We are deserving
Extinction
Decimating flood
We are still gripping, stilted to hatred
Wading in this blood

Fade out, lights out
Stay close to me love
We'll brave this fire on our knees
Ashes to ashes
Life to dust
Someday to rise
Like a flame

Pillars of atom fill the skyline
Seas turn to blood, that bathes the coast

Obey the waves, they'll guide you home
Before the tempest, after the storm
Track Name: Soar (Through the Ash and Fire)
Blackened waves, dark as coal
Cannot tell the summer from the fall
Craters spread like scars across the earth
Sun no longer burns

Soil is ash, the dust is rain
The world I knew will never be the same
Fumes of searing flesh fill the air
Breathe in

The season ends, as hot and cold begin to meld
Beyond a reason why
It's over
A means to an end
The grip of death still grasps your hand
And drags you to your knees
Say your prayers

A ruin, so vast and absolute
Nothing seems to breathe
Nothing grows out here
A place, where each and every soul
Has paid a price too bold
They all should have known
You reap what you have sown

Pay!
Your lives will all end here
The sky begins to breathe
A wanton tragedy

Soar
Right through the ash and fire
Smoldering the liars
That brought it to its knees
Track Name: Freefall (feat. Aaron Marshall)
Right before the ash I could see the sky
I could watch the stars as they slowly died
I could taste the rain, I could touch the earth
Now there's only flames, watch them slowly burn
You were once here, you cannot return
You were by my side you cannot return
No longer alive, everything has died
The dust of what was fills the air tonight.

Feel something for me
Something
Real, unlike the seas
Dead and cold, bloody shores
And silence

Your face haunts my dreams
Sometimes
It feels, like I'm in a deep
spiral down
Shackled bound
But I'll carry on with your memory

Colors once were bright now they slowly fade
Monuments of man crumbling away
I could watch the sun through the window pane
See it rise and fall every single day
You were with me, you cannot return
You were by my side, you cannot return
No longer alive, everything has died
The dust of what was fills the air tonight.

Feel something for me
Something
Real, unlike the seas
Dead and cold, bloody shores
And silence

Your face haunts my dreams
Sometimes
It feels, like I'm in a deep
spiral down
Shackled bound
But I'll carry on with your memory

I will clutch onto the visions left in me
Take on anyone and anything left in my way
I'll keep focus on the horizontal line
Once I'm done, they will finally see
Your fates are aligned
The end that you've designed
For yourself
It's what you've left for me
Track Name: Oblivion
And in my dreams
I can see your face
Taken away from me
In a nuclear haze

But I can't see
The shape of things to come
I hope to feel
The depths of oblivion

I want to need, a hunger to feed on
I want to have nothing left
A body that's broken and spent

A desire to bleed, to feel defeated
I want to feel anything
In this shell that I'm living in

I wish you could waste
With me
Witness the fall of things
To be

Witness it all
Coming down
Coming down
So beautifully

What's it gonna take?
For the world to be, broken in two
I'd find them all, destroy them for you
Until there's nothing left to break
To break

How's it gonna be?
When your power is gone?
When the chains are bound?
When your minds are torn?
When you're powerless
Powerless
To stop
What is coming for you

What is coming for you

I am coming for you
Track Name: Destroyer
Take a little bit
It's only temporary, pain
The feel of it
The taste of everything, the way
The radiance
Burns like the sunlight on my face
So delicate
Let the skin burn away, expose
The skeleton
Feeling the body break and fail
In unison
Rebuild and replicate, reject
the irrelevant
Accept the cirumstantial fate
I close my eyes and wait

Chorus:

Complications rise
Witness the failing of the mind

Awake, and see again
as if I'm learning how to use
My eyes again
As if the whole of the world was hued
With red
Flashes of momentary pain
Fill my body again, I can feel it now
The balance shifts
The pulse is quick
The air is thick
And in front of me I see
Faces looking at me
A cold chill gripping me
They've got me under again

Chorus:

Complications rise
Witness the failing of the mind
Convoluted lies
Replace the memory inside

Give me a reason to believe
Give me a reason to comply

I'll dream of waking up
And taking you all down with me
Your lives are on the edge
Ending all that I will see
Your powers useless now
The situation way too far
The box is open now
I'm the end of all that you are
Track Name: The Price, Part I
Do you understand?
Does it give you pause?
Does it really matter now?
Knowing that everything, everything's gone?
How do I go from here?
Can I find a place?
Somewhere to find myself
And make it the way it was before it began?
I don't wanna be alone again
I don't wanna feel anything at all
I don't wanna see fire again
Nothing but bullets and blood on the floor
This has to be undone
This gift that was given to me
Just so I can see her face again
This is how it has to be

Place, your useless faith
In what you are, all that you are

You will feel loss, you don't belong
Silence and fear, drags you along

I'm going to be, the last thing you feel
The last thing you see, fester and grow

Did you know, that you will break
I am an end of all
end of you

Hey
Does this make you feel powerless?
Does this make you feel something less
Than the pain will allow

So taste
The hate and anger you've put in me
Does this make you feel anything
More than I am allowing you to feel
Track Name: The Price, Part II
I can see her light
I was hoping to see it shine
The way that she came to me
Is everything I've known, for so long
If I could have saved her life
Would she have given me the time to try
It's everything
That I wanted to see

Try and break free from the chains that you have made from a lie
I will end life, I'll end your life, you had too much and I will take it away
So beg for me as you plead on bloody knees for my mercy
There will be none, there will be none, you signed yourself away when you made me

You should have seen the signs
As the walls fell down around you
As these hands, clutched all your throats
And twisted spines of those involved
Something no one has foreseen
But I will make you understand
Stand in awe, of my form
And breathe in
Track Name: The Price, Part III
Look at my face, look at my fucking face
You're telling lies, like I anticipated
I want to know, what has become of me
I want to hear it from your mouth again
And now.... a time to obey
Your body trembles as I raise my fist again
A taste, a taste, a taste, a taste, I just want a taste

It's the end of the line
You'll attone for what you've made
I never wanted any of this
This is now a price you pay
So when you feel it in your bones
And then you feel it in your mind
Take a breath
Accept your fate
Your time is almost near

Breathe
In the air
And it let it flow
Flow into your veins
Accept the suffering
Track Name: Rust (feat. Garrett Gleason)
I stand on the edge
I look at the shore
The clouds break the horizon
Stabbing at the sun
A grain on the beach
I'm prepared for the plunge
As the wind greets my face
I'm the only one

I won't be coming back
The trip is too long
The hour is late
I'm where I belong

I've made my mistakes
Never paid my dues
I've left the box open
I've left the screws loose
I don't want any answers
I've asked for too long
I've danced all your dances
I've sang all the songs
I've sang all the songs

I wait on the shore line
Stay here til I rust
I'll keep my hands open
I'll keep my eyes shut
I won't be coming back
The road is too long
The hour is late
I'm already home
Track Name: A Stellar Paroxysm
Instrumental
