Track Name: Indulgence
Round up, isotonic abilities in life
To find a balance of nature
Eradicate the strife
Create a truce, in these circumstances I’ll take my chances and be willing to reproduce
A thought, a moment with even sides
A thought, a moment to stabilise

Can’t pin it on, can’t pin it all on indulgence
Possessing balance, Obligation and self-control
Endeavour, Displeasure
Our hearts will tightly tether

Aspiration to recognise your selfish ways
To raise above the lie you live
Aggravation, you rebel from every day
Make way, morality isn’t too far away

If you let everything go
Temptation will rule you
If you let everything go
Monstrosity will find you

In these circumstances I’ll take my chances and be willing to reproduce
A thought, a moment with even sides
A thought, a moment to stabilize

Can’t pin it on, can’t pin it all on indulgence
Possessing balance, Obligation and self-control
Endeavour, Displeasure
Our hearts will tightly tether

Will you let everything go now?

Reject indulgence
The tides are clean
Reject indulgence
See in between

Reject indulgence
The tides are clean
Reject indulgence
See in between
In between

See in between

Can’t pin it on, can’t pin it all on indulgence
Possessing balance, Obligation and self-control
Endeavour, Displeasure
Our hearts will tightly tether

Don’t take this virus, don’t take this virus for granted
Track Name: Prevalence
Separation of the gods, they were telling us to tear apart Save yourself now curse the unknown Break yourself out into the zone Save yourself now run to your home Break yourself protect what you own
Seems they divide, to gain the inner piece, Seems they divide, seems they divide
Seems they divide, to gain the inner peace, As they subside, the leaders fight prevalent seats. We will prolong, we will stay strong, We will go on, go go Moving in this hurricane
The riches and the gold is what runs this world of the untold Underneath the paper 'n' behind these wounds, has me consumed Following orders made by the elite To earn us some paper so we can all eat Following orders made by the elite To earn us some paper so we can all eat
Seems they divide, to gain the inner peace As they subside, the leaders fight prevalent seats. We will prolong, we will stay strong, We will go on, go go Moving in this hurricane
We won't stand alone We won't stand alone We won't stand alone We won't stand, argh!
Seems they divide, to gain the inner peace, As they subside, the leaders fight prevalent seats. We will prolong, we will stay strong, We will go on, go go Moving in this hurricane
Track Name: Dreamer
Dreamer
This isn’t what you thought your life would be,
You thought it would be more like a dream,
But open your eyes, see the world for what it is,
So you can tell this is hell.
With everyone out to get you, how can you trust yourself?
Trust yourself to push on, when these monsters kick you back down.

This is more than a dream.

Set me free from this place,
Where the air is thin,
Let me close my eye,
And let me see the world.


Set me free,
From this world that sits in parallel,
Set me free,
And make me feel alive.
I need to breathe,
As the darkness crushes me in,
I need to breathe,
Set me free.

This intoxication doesn’t seem to end,
It’s like we were born to fail and fade away,
What is happening to us?
We cannot give up.
Look to the sky, and see the joy of life,
Fight the darkness inside,
Make this fight worth your life,
Or it will consume us all.

Set me free from this place,
Let me breathe again
Set me free,
Set me free,
Let me breathe.

Set me free,
From this world that sits in parallel,
Set me free,
And make me feel alive.
I need to breathe,
As the darkness crushes me in,
I need to breathe,
Set me free.

Set me free from this place,
Where the air is thin,
(Where the air thin)
Let me close my eye,
And let me see the world
(Let me see the world).

Set me free.
Oh dreamer.
Track Name: The Deceiver
I can't forget those weathered eyes, I read them like a book of lies. Why can't we as humans just be humane? What can you do to survive? To be alive in a true revelation! Why do we always deprive? And live in this damnation! Life going to waste, honestly you're just a fake. Living and hiding behind this deceit, bleugh! Make your pledge to redeem yourself, break the shell around your soul and just forget! Make a pledge to redeem yourself, break the shell around your soul and just forget! Those weathered eyes, I read them like a book of lies. Why can't we as humans just be humane? What can you do to stay clear? Stay clear of this masking disguise! Will you live in fear? Of those who come to see the snake that lies beneath. Eugh! You'll feel regret if you live like this, you'll feel regret if you live like this. Make your pledge to redeem yourself, break the shell around your soul and just forget, make a pledge to redeem yourself. Break the shell around your soul and just forget. Those weathered eyes, I read them like a book of lies. Why can't we as humans, just be humane?! I see those forging lies, I can see the look of fear in their eyes. I see those forging lies. I can see the look of fear I their eyes (I can see the look of fear in their eyes) I can see the look of fear in their eyes, in the eyes.. Make a pledge!
Track Name: Distant Mountain
You wage war,
Against the weak, hopeless and poor,
With burning greed and hatred,
For anyone who’s less fortunate.
You deceive us all,
As you prepare you’re weapons of corruption,
But this will not last,
This will not last.

You climb your way to the top,
Of this distant mountain,
Succeeding by stepping on the backs,
Of each man and woman you can.
Destroying the strength of human kind,
Breaking apart the bonds between us,
The bond that makes us one,
The bond that makes us strong.

These days are wasted on you,
These hopes are the end of,
Any chance of change,
Any chance of change.

But we’re stuck,
Stuck in this hole,
Dog eating dog,
Until you’re the only one left.

How can we resolve this?

You wage war,
Against the weak, the hopeless and the poor,
With burning greed and hatred,
For anyone who’s less fortunate.
You deceive us all,
As you prepare you’re weapons of corruption,
But this will not last,
This will not last.
