Track Name: Glaciers
Glaciers

Why am i all alone, opposed by all the world, don't dare to patronize (me) and disdain plain insight. Why am i on my own, abandoned and neglected? Now be unweary, creating ways to guide us out of this, this misery, this hollowness.

End the silence, break the cycle, put end to apathy.
End the silence break the cycle, reset the counter to zero.

Am I the only one, to see that we have lost? Is Our innocence, if we strayed from chosen ways? There must be permanence, the will to be enduring. My heart is dauntless, unstoppable in moving on to crush, to crumble down, all obstacles.

End the silence break the cycle, put end to apathy.
End the silence break the cycle, reset the counter to zero.

Question conventions, do not accept the rules. A mind thats stoic will ever thrive on. Focus on your senses, focus on what makes this life unique and worthwhile living, follow that single path.

Why am i all alone? - Unflinching and determined.
Why am i on my own? - Whiping out this worlds pettiness.
Am i the only one? - Unstoppable, uncompromised.
There must be permanence - No trivling with our hopes.
Track Name: Surge
Surge

Lashing out and take a beating.
Wittnessing our defeat as we face reality reality.
Where are we going? What bleeding for?
Just bathing in our misery but to no avail.

This plea of guilty, I am confessing to the charges laid on me.
And we are ignoring, the fact that we can still master our own fate.

Cynics dancing in the streets tonight.
Except for burning bodies there is no ray of light.
The hopelessness is self-inflicted.
Remember that we're the ones to set the framework.

This plea of guilty, I am confessing to the charges laid on me.
And we are ignoring, the fact that we still master our own fate.

We ran into so many walls for nothing, had to accept the sacrife.
Its not the hurt that's felt just for a moment, but it‘s the fear arising from the vague ahead.

From the pain in that we revel comes the strife for purpose.
Free me from all apathy.
Track Name: Maelstrom
Maelstorm

Beyond the boundaries that once were, a place without traces of fear. I am trembling and drift away, retrospect is so mercyless. Nothing‘s still as it once was, this mealstorm that our lives became.

You learn a lot about yourself, when all the ties are cut.
And then your floating uncontrolled and gravitate towards the largest sun.

I am numb from all that falls on me, both the hope and the despair converging now into one trend. No line between to loose or to gain. Caught up in contradiction, suffering from us breaking free.

You learn a lot about yourself, when all the ties are cut.
And then your floating uncontrolled and gravitate towards the largest sun.

As time passes on there‘s little change in the focus of our actions. Our ambiguity mistaken with the power of hearts free roaming.

Every move made forward is a step to the bitter end, closer to the wake.

You learn a lot about yourself when all the ties are cut, you got it all in your own hands.
Track Name: Rising Tides
Rising tides

With hearts on fire, no one can stop us now. These man will stand up to
their deepest inner urge, no fear dulls the hammering.

These sounds that only hearts of purest honesty (and) determination can evoke.

Break out - break it down
Tear down - tear it down
Collapse the walls brick by bloodsoaked brick

Nothing can control, no one can prevent the rising tides.
Fury swells to rising tides.

It' s not obsession that ignites the brightest sparks whose flames consume the ignorant.
Courage born of despair makes one a thousand strong. It takes the hearts beyond the weariness.

Break out - break it down
Tear down - tear it down
Collapse the walls brick by bloodsoaked brick

Nothing can control, no one can prevent the rising tides.
Fury swells to rising tides.

Turn away from all the things that you love, remember to the base of all needs. Freedom, food and clean air to breath, rising tides to drown in the hate and the lies.

Break out - break it down
Tear down - tear it down
Collapse the walls brick by bloodsoaked brick.
