Track Name: What We've Witnessed
Lie and cheat
Your way through life
Fueled by greed
Never satisfied
You had it all
But you cant always have it your way

So wear the noose around your neck
And let that burden hang over your head
How does it feel to have the weight of the
World on your shoulders
Your never growing any older

We've all been stuck on this road
And we all have the scars to show
We've been consumed by hate and lies
By hate and lies

Tear it down
Burn it to the ground
Rebuild it from the smoldering foundation
No one said it would be easy
We Just keep pressing forward
Our heart continue to grow

Lie and cheat
Your way through life
Fueled by greed
Never satisfied
You had it all
But you cant always have your way

This is the world that we live in
This is what we've witnessed

We've all been stuck on this road
And we all have the scars to show
We've been consumed by hate and lies
By hate and lies
Track Name: Hollow Thrones
King of nothing
bury your crown
Get off your throne
And fight your own wars
You reached your end
accomplishing nothing
throwing stones at glass houses
Doesn't make you strong


I've seen your kind
Many times before
Shove your beliefs elsewhere
I don't need your book to
Find the answers
Strong minded
I see the destruction
and I won't stand by it.

Walking through the Valley alone
With just my mind and my soul
I've never felt so low.

You think you have control
Well let me tell you something
Your king of nothing
Sit on your hollow throne
We'll watch you burn
You'll burn alone

Every night When I sleep
I feel your demons
Crawl into me
Haunting my dreams
And I think the about times
Before your hand grasped mine
Worried sick
if you'll even show your face
I cut the rope
that imprisoned me
I think I reached the end
I'm reaching for the edge
Climbing up to fight this battle on my own
Only one can survive
And I will destroy whats killing me
This is the end of all you see
This is the end of everything you've grown to be

[x2]Take you by the hand show you how cruel this world could be I need your hand Right by mine.
Track Name: The Tides in Time
Push you away
I just need some space
From everything
That haunts me
I have no where to go
Drifting slowly down this road

I tracked through these seas
To bring you back to me
Only to find you weren't the one I need
I thought I needed you when I was hurting most
But you ran far away
Out of sight
And I was on my own

leave behind the past
It's not coming back
Thanks for the lessons
You taught me
I don't need you
I don't need you back
Thanks again for everything

I lost myself for the last time
And I won't let you take my state of mind
There's not much left of myself
I think this time I find someone else

When all was said and done
I gave up on everything
I Dropped the pen
I couldn't clear my head
For months
I pushed out the ones who cared the most
But I learned they were my everything

They're the reason I am still standing
I was broken yet they still fixed me
Never gave up
Even after everything
Standing tall right next to me


I lost myself for the last time
And I won't let you take my state of mind
There's not much left of myself
I think this time i'll find someone else

Wave goodbye to your past
It's all memories
Be grateful
For the lessons you learned
it's just a story to be told
Track Name: Overcome
Every time I look to the sky
I see red
The world is falling to their knees
The Flood will take them all swiftly

The world is a disaster
A place fueled by hate and greed
Climb out of the hole that you dug for yourself

Dug for yourself

We've dug this hole for ourselves
We can't blame someone else
This is the price we pay since we've made Things this way
We're more than just a sound we'll turn This all around and we can overcome

We all hold the key to our destiny
But will we ever put it In the slot and Unlock that door
The future is growing near
And we have every right to fear
The storm will take us all
If we all stand blind
And don't rise up

They say history repeats itself
And I am starting to believe
All we see
Is visions of our past
Haunting us to our graves

I see the the past coming alive in the Present tense
While people stand and watch
And say its ok

Defending them

Saying "Its for our protection"

"We need this to happen"

Fighting a war that doesn't exist

To protect their selfishness

To harbor the money

Never gonna give back to the ones in need

Its wretched crime in these horrid times
And we are all praying for the better

We've dug this hole for ourselves
We can't blame someone else
This is the price we pay since we've made things this way
We're more than just a sound we'll turn this all around and we can overcome

I think we've all had our darker days
Buried 6 feet deep in past mistakes
That bring along the nightmares
That keeps up at night
But we all know these times will pass
These times will pass
Track Name: Set to Sail
I'll be home late tonight
So don't worry about me
I'm ready to leave
It might be better off if you
Forgot about me
And acted like it never happened

Sometimes life just gets in the way
And it's hard to maintain
Relationships that weren't meant
To be
Let your loved ones pass you by
In the blink of an eye
It's all gone
It faded away
And it's your choice to bring it back

I won't forget all the memories that come and pass
can't be looking down that road
"going nowhere fast"
willingly letting go of the past
I've made following bliss and
giving up on all of this

I'm not the man that I used to be
I think we've all changed for better or for worse
I used to feel So weathered and broken down
A lonely soul wandering in the unknown
This past year so much has changed
I've come to grips with everything


I won't forget all the memories that come and pass
can't be looking down that road
"going nowhere fast"
willingly letting go of the past
I've made following bliss and
giving up on all of this

I will not turn my back on all I believe
I just can't forget these memories
I won't let life fade my dreams
I'm not just a shadow
And I won't wear my heart inside my sleeve.

I won't forget all the memories that come and pass
can't be looking down that road
"Going nowhere fast"
Willingly letting go of the past
I've made following bliss and
giving up on all of this


I didnt know that I held the key all this time
It was buried deep inside of me

I unlocked all the doors I was to scared to open

You gave me strength

showed me the light I was

To blind to see.

No longer will I let fear control me

Let fear control me.
