Track Name: Samsara
I declare war on everything
that has been rotting for years
Inside me and I will not accept
Look in to my eyes to see
disgust and shame
This war is raging in my head
blasting noises keeping me awake
Our eyes will reflect despair decades of long battles
Ripping apart destroying cells, poisonous fields,
destructive ideas and years of fear
Firing for miles won't make me free
the last shot of this war will be aimed at me
Track Name: Sinking
We are the water, parting the seas
New worlds each hour
We are the current beneath your ship
Holding fast, moving ahead
Without us sinking is the least
of your infinite problems
We are the winds blowing your sails
steady and stable, we've never changed direction
Always strong, with you forever
When you thought the end was near
Engaging self destruction
We gave it all
Track Name: Footprints In Sand
Depressed and happy
Saddness in joy
We are footprints in sand
Here to stay now I live
Here to stay now I leave
Believe me I have tried
To lose this blood taste in my mouth
There is nothing in this place
that can make it go away
I dream of lights at the end
of the tunnel that only fades away
Track Name: Submission
I can't remember anything
All of my mistakes and sorrows
This yellow brick road will be my guidance
A pack of high immune rats
Drinking its poison, admiring every drop
Another well funded industry raising hell
This is a part of our society just passing by
We become dull while knives getting sharpened
Everything dischords around me
I'm fed up with everything: corruption, best intrests
Conservative medieval times, this is a manipulation
Track Name: Halls
Crows fly away
We're left with so little to live for
We're known for what you call the opposition
yet to call it quits we are the opposition
thriving in sickness and health
blooming despair roots in everyone's addiction
salvation reigns in the halls
of our wounded children
Circles over my head
Track Name: Crowns
Never have I misread a question like that
what i do on a daily basis is wrong
we must be better than this
a change must be the bottom line
a word we made an angry path
an all consuming rage so unified
I sometimes envy it's unity
we must all scream and be aware
and from every place the ground will shake
I am the god of my own world
Track Name: Foundations
We are the earth
the solid foundations
sole provider our final rest
we built it all with our own hands
and we're getting stepped on
everyday every night
ignoring the last call on a day like this
you'll join us all
