Track Name: Embers
The cancer bites back again
Its feeding ground
Buried in your prize possession
Coated in a shell so sheer to break
I will, I will remember you
I won’t forget how strong you were

Life will go on
Only left with the taste of you
In my senses
A sudden cry, a sudden cry
I’m buried alive - fucking up to my
Neck in distress

As I attempt to forget miles of fucking ground
All I can see is your face
Your death has stained my soul
Suffocation of the message you told me
To live every day as though it’s your last
The future looks bright
The future looks brighter in hell
Brighter in hell…

Brighter in hell

Life will go on
Life will go on
You will be missed

Your bones ice cold
Before you passed away
Nothing to hold on to
When you’re already one foot in the grave
Your bones ice cold
Before you passed away
Nothing to hold on to
When you’re already one foot in the grave

Brighter in hell

The cancer bites back again
Its feeding ground
Buried in your prize possession
Coated in a shell so sheer to break
I will, I will remember you
I won’t forget how strong you were

Life will go on
Only left with the taste of you
In my senses
A sudden cry, a sudden cry
I’m buried alive - fucking up to my
Neck in distress
Track Name: Vitae
And I was blessed with your existence
Defying strength with weakness
No wound could show the grief of your decay
And now these winds just make it harder
Feeling you float away
No one could ever fill the empty space

An autumn filled summer sky
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back time?
Frozen still hung on the window sill
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back..

Time is the essence to an endless fear
A frequency no one will ever hear
Fake facts shape tracks
To show that death is near
Abomination; is that what it’s become?
Is that what it’s become?
Is that what it’s become?
Is that what it’s become?
Is that what it’s become?

From what I recall
You saw the best in me
Your soul stays here

And I was blessed with your existence
Defying strength with weakness
No wound could show the grief of your decay
And now these winds just make it harder
Feeling you float away
No one could ever fill the empty space

Time is the essence to an endless fear
I’m struggling to face that you are far from near
But in my heart, you bury deep within
I can’t release this sadness; all I feel is emptiness
All I feel is emptiness
Wise words you said to me
‘Work hard for what you love and you will sail the sea’
Well I’m making progress, I’m making progress

An autumn filled summer sky
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back time?
Frozen still hung on the window sill
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back time

Well I’m making progress, well I’m making progress, I’m making progress

An autumn filled summer sky
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back time?
Frozen still hung on the window sill
Will you take me back; will you take me back or turn back time.
