Track Name: Perplexity
Bare witness to a backdrop you could not imagine
Colourblind from the abundant array of spectrums and lights

I've been alone in this sanctum of hell for too long and its taking its toll
On my life, all I wanted was to take back control, but now its all out of my hands

At the pinnacle, fearing the winds of change
Within this chaos, nothing could delay
All the memories that we had left for dead
Now they resurface inside my head
With these wings we'll take flight
And never look back to this broken past
It is time, to justify your existence
Reach new horizons and carve out your destiny

Drawn to the glow and the radiance of the red sun it has taken hold
Of my soul, if only we could break down these walls, we would be united again

If you could only see whats living inside my dreams
All the monsters that we made, they won't forget this

At the pinnacle, fearing the winds of change
Within this chaos, nothing could delay
It is time, to justify your existence
Reach new horizons and carve out your destiny

Behold the light that serves us
We can't deny it life forever
You were chosen to lead us home
Track Name: Rebirth
Fallen from the darkest star in creation
We never remembered just what we were sent here for
But it was obvious we had to act
The hostile lifeforms of this planet
Threatened our very existence
We knew it was war

One by one, we fell
None of us knew how long we'd last in this living hell
Just one more day in this concrete cell
And I will lose my mind

When your efforts fall short
And your cause seems long gone
The light in the darkness looks bleak

And as the shadow closes in
To cleanse us of our sins
Its here where you'll find what you seek

What you think you know and what we've fell into
Are two different things
You seem to forget that whole fact
Have you no eyes to see?
In the minds of the people we've already lost
They got the best of me
Filled with the hope of the fallen my strength is reborn

Within the light
Sweet retribution was in our sight
There was a spectacle of blood and death that night
A battle for the ages

Walk amongst the dead and tell me your opinion now
Reap the rewards or reap what you sow
Track Name: Dissolution ft. Brandon Hoogendorp of Sentinel
Turning back has never been so hard before
Watching the sun go down is more than I can endure

So many years in exile
Longing for our motherland

The last time we tried to go back home
We found there was nothing left at all
We should of known that it would all come down
Everything we built in vain

We walk to the edges of this earth
Searching for answers no one knows
We must decide for our future
Will we rise against the odds?

How longer will we lie awake at night?
Wishing this was all an illusion, a nightmarish dream
If we can't identify with ourselves
Then all we are will be lost in the sands of time
Time to reclaim the crown and give these people back their lost hope

BRANDON
So disconnected, jaded and desolate
Wearily I arrive at worlds end
Now left with weary bones and a broken soul
Hollow remnants, empty times
I know not which path to follow
Burden me with iron will, banish the grey
Bring me home

How longer will we lie awake at night?
Wishing this was all an illusion, a nightmarish dream
If we can't identify with ourselves
Then all we are will be lost in the sands of time
Time to reclaim the crown and give these people back their lost hope

The last time we tried to go back home
We found there was nothing left at all
Track Name: Crossroads
Searching for a remedy
And finding nothing but hollow truths
Remember all these illusions of grandeur
Unearthing the puzzles of our past

I'm at a crossroad
How could the path I thought was right end up so wrong

Walk with me in the fire
And feel your burdens burn away
As the flames grow ever so higher
Once more we go into the fray
And we're asking ourselves, why?

Striving for self absolution
With a distorted view
Born in a world we don't belong
We never had a clue
Longing for a revolution
Would be naive of me
They've had a hold on us so long
We're just too blinded to see

Walk with me in the fire
And feel your burdens burn away
As the flames grow ever so higher
Once more we go into the fray
And we're asking ourselves, why?

Reaching for the right solution
Is harder than it seems
So many times we've gone too far
Creating war out of peace

Life has been abandoned here
We've become so introverted in our fear
Now all we have left
Is the remants and pieces of regret
