Track Name: Shear
Our existence it is inconsequential
A mere drop in this ocean of time
We could be washed from the face of this Earth
Our history gone in the blink of an eye

We are a virus that has ravaged this place
We won’t stop till the death of our host
The only cure to this disease we’ve created
The extinction of all we know

All that you’ve worked for means nothing
The life you know is a fucking lie
Peel back the world’s silver lining
To witness the extent of the sickness inside

What will you do when our monuments fall
And we are left with a consuming guilt
This utopia built on sand will crumble
And it must be rebuilt

In the end there are two possibilities
That we are alone and we’ve been left here to die
Or we are not alone in this world,
and both are equally as terrifying

They say you reap what you sow
But ours are seeds of death and destruction
They say you reap what you sow
But ours are seeds of death and destruction

Our existence it is inconsequential
A mere drop in this ocean of time
We could be washed from the face of this Earth
Our history gone in the blink of an eye

We are a virus that has ravaged this place
We won’t stop till the death of our host
The only cure to this disease we’ve created
The extinction of all we know

All that you’ve worked for means nothing
The life you know is a fucking lie
Peel back the world’s silver lining
To witness the extent of the sickness inside

There is nothing left
Our lives and dreams have turned to dust

There is nothing left
Our lives are dust
Track Name: Catalyst
Wake
It’s a continuing phase
It’s what you do to yourself
When you’re corrupted in rest

There’s no way to step
Free of your own mind
Because this whole twisted world
Is turning you fucking blind

Is this what I create?
Is this locked in my own fate?
Is there any message you represent?
Or are you the pointless picture of hate?

Is there anybody out there?
Will you pull me from this nightmare?
Will you pull me back from the end?
Or leave me here
To die all alone?

There’s no way to save me

Wake, its an unstoppable force,
It’s what you do to yourself when you’re heading to the end
There’s no way to step free of your own kind
Because this twisted world
Is turning you fucking blind

Break these chains
Shatter the bonds and be free
Step out to the world
Be free of this fucking disease

Now is our time to rise
Now is our time be released

Release me
To the fucking world

I will be free
I will be not be enslaved
Track Name: Momentum
You can’t protect yourself

I, will hold my head above this corporate flood
The masses held down by greed
The emptiness of always wanting more
Condemning us to always live in need

Consuming all but failing to be content
A condition beyond belief
A system rotting from the inside out
Dying to be put out of its misery

False idols are as hollow as their name
A face to a corrupt regime
Followed by the blind
But I refuse to follow their lead

I stand firm
The only constant in this ever changing world
I am immovable
Defiant in the face of your momentum

I will rise
When all others are forced onto their knees
I will rise
When all others are forced
Forced to their fucking knees

I refuse to be
Another sheep lead to your slaughter
I refuse to be
Another sheep lead to your slaughter
I refuse to be
A statistic in your scheme
I refuse to be
Another cog in the machine

You can’t protect
You can’t protect
You can’t protect yourself

You can’t protect yourself
You can’t fucking save yourself

I will hold my head above this corporate flood
The masses held down by greed
The emptiness of always wanting more
Much more than they could ever need

Consuming all but failing to be content
This condition defies belief
A system rotting from the inside out
Dying to be put out of its misery

False idols are as hollow as their name
Faces to the fucking machine
Formed by the strong
But upheld by the weak

And like all empires before
They inevitably reach their end
We as a judge
The masses cry out

Your time has come
Repent or revenge
Track Name: Surface
Endlessly we've navigated this maelstrom
Sailed our ships onto calmer seas
My convictions return to haunt me
As we are swallowed by a vengeful sea

Desperation makes me claw at the surface
But I know I’ll be forever be adrift
Forcing me down
Pulling me down into a crushing abyss

I can’t endure this hell any longer
To meet my end would be a welcome relief
I can’t endure this hell any longer
To meet my end would be a welcome relief

Your eyes grow wide
As your fear takes hold
And I hear the sirens as they call you
To your new home

Your eyes grow wide
As your fear takes hold
Then I step back and watch
As the endless teeth
Rip the skin from your bones

There’s no turning back now
You've run aground on this reef
We've marooned you alone on this island
Forever damned to wallow in your grief

There’s no turning back now
You've run aground on this reef
We've marooned you alone on this island
Forever damned to wallow in your grief

Your apparition
Returns every night to haunt me in my sleep
The memory of a beautiful nightmare
Or the ghost
Of a terrible dream

Endlessly we've navigated this maelstrom
Sailed our ships onto calmer seas
My convictions return to haunt me
As we are swallowed by a vengeful sea

Desperation makes me claw at the surface
But I know I’ll be forever be adrift
Forcing me down
Pulling me down into a crushing abyss

I can’t endure this hell any longer
To meet my end would be a welcome relief
And as I slip into my endless slumber
I feel the sharks come
Rip the flesh from my fucking bones
