Torchbearer 04:41
runnin’ to find a way out, i can't stay the same i'll resculpt my layout from this mold i've made (set and cure, casting pure) feeding the flame control an old divide has grown inside far too much to be ignored keeping me unsatisfied, seeking spaces unexplored my life’s a shadow of every choice i've made i’ll open the window, watch it shine right through my hands meant to choose a better way gave up what was prearranged while barely making the cut hard to move with these restraints formed from my amassed mistakes that led me right to the cusp lost the blues but found the gray scars will prove when I'm betrayed has my control been crushed? there’s only so much one can take before they’re forced to disengage but if we keep pushing past the point we break there’s no telling where we'll go, as long as it’s not here give me what i really want! this future needs my torch to light the way my light is shattered and the day is running out i’ll make something that matters when i burn through all my doubt
Visionary 04:51
i would never go astray, i can’t ever hide away i would never just obey the rules that keep us all within our space i can't keep whatever's mine if i never draw the line i don't ever want to serve the sentence when i haven't done the crime can't believe i've hit the wall, never slowed into a crawl i didn't ever know it all when all I knew was never what I saw i won’t make a new excuse, it’ll only tighten up the noose i can only take a chance to wake the words that make these mountains move make this vision come to life while never really having tried face the fear of failing just to stand in line i am boxed away, this past still digs me deeper i cling onto hope and somehow missed the reaper no chance to rewind when it’s been so long that i’ve been dead inside and trapped within this hell make me come alive help me find the strength to carry on we bury deep within ourselves should have lifted me up but still dragging me down ‘cause i needed as much as all i've never found i am boxed away, this past still digs me deeper i cling onto hope and somehow missed the reaper make this vision come to life indecision can’t survive make this vision
Rain Dance 05:12
make a wish become your strategy stay the course or face catastrophe use your charm to hide the unprepared lose your doubt or say another prayer bring me the success of my intentions multiplied never going to rest until i've unleashed what's inside send a new wave flooding out to help me to persuade let us feel it overpouring into what i've made where do we hide, where do we run to? where will we go, what will we find? forsaking time to lead the pursuit, caught between worlds we’re misaligned set to collide while staying unmoved, ready to go, ready to fight help fortify the seeds to take root, make our advances multiply
Liquid Hands 05:36
as i glance back to reflect on a path that's been carved it seems to make more sense now than before my discontent i'd rather not stay stranded here eventually to starve when i could keep on moving towards the unknown endlessness a veil across the air, the sky begins to wake then tear black clouds crawling in, clashing from within releasing hopes they’ve undermined the waves begin pouring is this a new warning coming to wash us away? the tempest taunts and turns as the world grows but never learns the sun is in disguise, seeming to imply it will never rise the waves begin pouring is this a new warning coming to take us and drown us under coming to wash us away? can't live without any small decision if it amounts to taking what we face and leaving us afraid the waves surround as the walls begin to give it's about to break and lose its shape carry us away
Floodgates 05:58
the fog is steaming up my lens and i’m resigning to surrender all i’ve sworn keep trying to breathe in on command so i can redefine what helped this to take form whatever happens not to go my way when i still keep on planting promises decayed, will i melt? wait, i’m doing this all wrong i’m overwhelmed with false reflections i can never reach if i don’t swim the weight will bring me down and keep descending past redemption in the breaking undertow get what i deserve, when plans are betrayed i won't be deterred, i won't take the wrong way out run away, far away if you feel the urge the storm is brave and feeds the pain of all your wasted courage can't face your own grave if you are submerged make your focus ricochet into a deeper thirst wait, i knew it all along i’m fighting with a preconception wrapped in fallacy i won't cave against the crashing sounds then lose contentment with myself to awaken all I know losing to my needs is just like going through withdrawal we're better having never started anything at all the weight of living dreams exceeds far past what i foresaw increasing ever faster as it overtakes control
sifting through pieces with nothing left to discover the hardest part is forgetting what will always stay the same forgive what's been nailed down, no more controlling cover let's put an end to regretting and watch this wash away walk through walls of waves, watch me fall out lost the grip that saves, my tomorrow rescue me from rain, i surrender help me find my way through the weather save me now, i’m upside down left above a far climb but right beneath the landslide get me to the other side on your back don't let me misguide you, i want you to navigate and keep us on the right track ...without a path ahead to follow... but i don't want to backtrack, i want to leave the past for history i’m looking for a comeback but i can’t get a guarantee that i’m not going to crack a faulty wire set me on fire can’t put the flame out, i need another way out pull me through and change my view bring me to your side, show me how i can get to you show me the way, i’ll follow you save me SOS i want you to save me by spending all you’ve got i want you to turn me into something i’m not i want you to drain me, bring me back to start i want you to break me before i come apart
my skin’s alive, telling me I’m out of place i can feel its cold, i’ve stepped into a deeper space i already know it, i’ve gone beyond and sparked the chase i can feel it now, shadow is stepping out beneath the waves i know...it's coming for me i'll sever the urge that's rotting away eroding the trust with lies we say, knowing we’ll never arrive something's not right, i'm headed down to darker days i'm just growing old, i still can’t find an easy way to stop overflowing, to bide my time and mind my haste will i ever emerge from sinking away? will they remember my name? how do you plan to survive? are you still feeling alive? no i'll never stop, still running the maze forcing the fame before my grave seeking my way out seeming that i can’t find the trail fought off but weighed down feeling the monster on my tail caught on the way down feeding on me as i fall apart sawed off my way out seeking escape to awake my heart i’m still feeling alive and i still want to survive
our paths are prearranged in our own minds i never should have thought that'd i get anywhere but right where i began so you can take it away, i've fought enough to know that i don't want a war and you can redefine what you’ve intertwined when you cast away led astray, cast away
