Track Name: The Projection In The Trench
My god how things have changed since I was young
Dear god what the hell have I become?
My dear you should really mind your tongue
Before this world of ours is completely undone
Before this would of ours is undone

What was once wood has turned to stone
And I may be free, but I'm still alone

Trees used to block the sun from here
Now roots tangled into the surface
Losing the stillness of water
Refreshing wind into dead air
The seduction under the sun
The projection in the trench

It tells me to start a new life
It shows me the truth behind closed eyes
My god these circles won't leave me be
Keep crashing into my sides until I bleed
Clarity settles as the forest regrows
Never again will I lose control
I follow my heart, I forget the past
I burn my bridges to light my path
Track Name: Frequency
Lay still now friend

This is a job for me
I've seen this before
and I've got the cure
Just let it out for me
I've never let you down
Every frequency you wanted
and every time you asked I delivered at the decibel of your choice

And when the pain is too much to bare
When you think it's time to call it quits
I've got your back everytime
I promise, I've got you

Just stand up for what you believe
These kids, they've been abusing
Don't let them flood the streams
With whatever fad is today

Separate trend from art
Invent instead of repeat
There's no better man for this job
and every time you fall I will always catch you


And when the pain is too much to bare
When you think it's time to call it quits
I've got your back every time I promise, I've got you

Just push on

And when the deicbels peak and its just me and you
Expressing each other in ways that cannot be described
Just know we've accomplished more than anyone would ever think
Oh how we'll decorate every ear, how we will show them passion

And when the pain is too much to bare
When you think it's time to call it quits
I've got your back every time I promise, I've got you

Just push on
Track Name: Home
I can't do this alone
But I'll try to be
The one who stands on his own
I never wanted this
Somehow I can't close my eyes
The stars are way too bright

Now I'm standing on this shallow ground
Treading through four feet underwater
At one point I was lost but now I'm found
Don't lie to me, because I already know

Never will these kids stop haunting us
And I will never forget
How I let a reject
Kill my only daughter

I can't do this alone
But I'll try to be
The one who stands on his own
I never wanted this
Somehow I can't close my eyes
The stars are way too bright

When the car crash went too far
When the star light made us blind
He was under for way too long
Those who were cautious followed her lies
Never will these kids stop haunting us
I see you in my dreams, don't ever leave me be

Atlantic is crying for home, because...

I'll find my way back home

And I've given everything I have left in me
But I promise I'll come home
And I regret never saying goodbye the night before you died
But I promise I'll come home
Track Name: Before It Ends
This state, this fucking state
A popularity contest
Instead of appreciation
Of pitch and dynamics
If you knew me would you be listening?
Or walking away?
Walk into the light
I say this as you turn
You'll never find feeling like this

I'm bleeding on wood and steel
Almost in tears because of the forest
I promise you I'm not your golden ticket
I'm here to cure you before it ends
Your factory is a trend
A trend gone in minutes
While this meaningless life is ruined within seconds

Broken bottles decorate the ground
With the intent of hiding what was never supposed to be found
Something so terrifying it wakes you in your sleep
Trying to find comfort in the distant and deep
And add it to the mixture
To create this picture
Come and bleed sweat and cry the purest form of color with me

I've found something more
Something better to offer the world
I've found what I'm here for
I've seen the light inside the eye of the storm

For one god damn minute
Pretend that this isn't the end
And let me show you the world for what it truely is
Before it ends
Track Name: Sinking Ship
I've sailed the seven seas
You can't take this from me
You're under water (you can hardly breathe)
I fight fire with water (I'll never see defeat)
Your lungs are getting cold
There's splnters in your feet
You're dying under the surface
Kicking and pulling it's dragging you underneath

Gorgeous agony,
We sail this sinking ship
Line up accordingly
We failed the ones we loved
The ones we used to know

Now I am finally free
From the ones who've taken everything from me
Since I'm sinking to the bottom of the sea
I'm a sinking ship, no one can save me
Now I'm finally free
Since I'm sinking to the bottom of the sea
Since I'm kicking and pulling
These waves keep dragging me underneath

Gorgeous agony,
We sail this sinking ship
Line up accordingly
We failed the ones we loved
The ones we used to know

I've sailed this sinking ship
I've sailed this sinking ship for too long
Why would you take my fucking life from me

The waters truely between and heaven and hell
The ocean floor is where my answers lie
My very own suffocating purgatory
I'll take you down with me if I have to
Try my best to bring you back from the dead,
Grab my hand before the current does
I'll save you from hell,
I'm bringing you back to the surface
Even if it costs me my own life

Gorgeous agony,
We sail this sinking ship
Line up accordingly
We failed the ones we loved
The ones we used to know

Now we are finally free
Since we are ascending from the bottom of the sea
The sun burns off the darkness as we wade with the current
Now we are finally free,
But the dead keep trying to pull us underneath
As we keep kicking and pulling
Our sinking ship is our only hope of being free

We swim towards the boat, it's our last chance at hope
I try to grab onto the rope as voices shout out from the sea

"SAVE OUR SHIP"
