Track Name: Proxy
Eclipse darkness and let the light of time stand still,
Remember the beginning and erase yourself.

Eclipse darkness and let the light of time stand still,
Remember the divinity and erase my self.

Let me create change from nothing,
breathe in ash and move a shell.

(Remove and destroy) this fragile figure.
(Rebuild and re-destroy) a never ending cycle,
Until I finally snap and break.

Let courage embrace reality,
With sewn eyes but until then.

Eclipse darkness and let the light of time stand still,
Remember the beginning and erase yourself.

My eyes have grown sore from staying awake,
So let these hands gift you with the silence of death.

throw me aside like it was never meant to be,
Breathe in ash and awake new life.

The idea that this,
body has become useless

(The me) you used just to pull,
(Yourself) out of the dirt with,
(Use me) and use me some more,
Just to feel something.

Engrave the secrets, enchant and create,
Burden yourself with the lie.
Restore and build yourself up once again,
I am a proxy, I am the lie.

Engrave the secrets, enchant and create
I am a proxy, I am the lie.

The idea that this body has left me.

Don’t hold on to me when we both fall,
Im not the substitute for your problems.
But I have become (I have become),
the agent of our death.

Engrave the secrets, enchant and create,
Burden yourself with the lies.
Restore and build yourself up once again,
I am a proxy, I am the lie.

So lets eclipse darkness and let the light of time move on,
Remember the conclusion and erase the start.
Track Name: Ark
Rain falls again and again, on drawings made of sand.
Wash away the evidence of my existence.

Create a mountain, a pedestal to hold you up,
I sculpted these hills from clay and crystal.

The biggest mistake I made was believing in myself.

This mouth reeks of lies, after all you can’t see the
Torrent that’s coming to wash us both away.

I’ve struggled with the weight of the world on my shoulders,
but I chose this,
I chose this.

Let me try to hold up all the pain,
Let me try to mend the you thats broken.
Pull it in and create something inside,
and let me be the ark, let me be the ark.

Contemplate this feeling

Let it sink in and crush.
Are you good enough? Are you strong enough?
Enter the water and forget to hold your breath,
and try to remember why you are drowning.

I am the vessel that shall guide you through,
a broken light not a light to guide.
I am the vessel that shall guide you through,
a broken light, a tortured sight.

I am just a name, written into the earth
but I am just a name, that's written into the sand.

Create a shell, inscribe, and wear,
Let the motion escape and burden you.
Create a shell, inscribe, and wear,
Let me carry the burden.

A name holds no value, I am guilty of this,
I’ve made a coffin to hold all of the world.
A name holds no value, I am guilty of this,
I’ve felt the sorrow wash away my name.

I am just a name, written into the sand.

I am the guilty,
I am the hollow,
I am the ark.
Track Name: Secure
Take my heart, it’s yours to keep,
But your weak wrists just can’t get a grip.

What does he have that I don't?
Except a hollow way to fulfill,
Your empty life, your shallow heart,
Will find bliss in the essence that gets you off.

Take time, to look back on what we had,
It was nothing easy to forget.
Well at least for me,
But you can’t seem to look past your distorted eyes.

So forgive me for the ignorance,
in believing you’d be better then this.
But there’s hope in the words that you left me with,
So why are you running away?

Hope comes to taunt me again,
Thanks for finally opening my eyes.

Burn it down, and reclaim what’s left of mine,
and retrace the steps (back to the start)
To what led you down this path

So take me back to a time when I could see,
My reflection in your eyes but it hurts to know,
That you don’t see anything.

Contrary to what you said,
You weren't ready to be alone.
But where will I be?
When the lust turns to rust.

I'm done with the constant reminders,
That will follow me every chance they get.
A thief now sits in my place and I’ve grown tired,
Seeing his goddamn face.

To keep my heart on my sleeve,
Is a challenge I wasn’t prepared for.
Have I learned nothing from what came before?
Have I’ve learned nothing?

Cause friend is such a vague term,
But it covers up for vague feelings.
I wonder were they there from the start .

And it hurts to know,
It still hurts to know,
That you don’t see anything.

Burn it down, and reclaim what’s left of mine,
and retrace the steps (back to the start)
To what led you down this path

So take me back to a time when I could see,
My reflection in your eyes but it hurts to know,
That you don’t see anything anymore.

Even after all of this,
I just hope to wake up beside you again.
Track Name: Shell
So take me back to a time and place,
When I could stand to see the image of my goddamn face.

A monument to better days,
When all things still had colour and these eyes...

...and these eyes, they seemed to favour.

My body entwines with lines of life,
that hold no weight (pull these strings).
These threads of choice that have left me in pieces,
The fibres grasp, suffocating, drawing in life.

The grey and black that flakes from your skin,
Painted like ash and flutters in the wind.

Let me reach in and pull out life,
The source of your pulse, a weapon of my choice.

My body entwines with lines of life,
that hold no weight (pull my strings).
Your soul has defined its existence,
But it is I who holds the trigger.

I've dawned this crown made of guilt and lies,
A sinful halo that burns my mind.

So take me back to a place.

So take me back to a time and place,
When I could stand to see the image of your goddamn face,
Goddamn face, fucking waste,
That I let myself drown neck deep into.
Track Name: Exhale
I’ve taken every breath and tried to forget the fact that I’m still alive,
The meanings and ideas of life seem to evade my mind.

I became imperfection and inhaled the worlds poison.

The words I can’t find somehow can always find me,
The words I can’t speak somehow will always haunt me cause...

I’m hollow, but I took solace in your words,
I’m afraid, but I can’t seem to find the light,
I’m silent, but you still linger in my veins,
I’m sick, but the feeling has slipped away.

I’m cold, but I still wear this veil of death,
I’m torn, but I can’t seem to mend my bones,
I’m frail, but the glass still shows my skin,
I’m hate, so forgive me for this.

Pull in the air and finally let it go,
Take it all back, take it all back.
Pull in the air and finally let it out,
Breathe it out, breathe it out, and finally exhale.

This veil has finally been removed and now I can finally see.
oh how I was wrong, so very wrong.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again,
I am an ugly man.

But to think you’re any better?
We’ll just have to see.

I became the third and final cut,
I spent my time wondering and you spent it ignoring.
My hands tremble and my mind shakes,
I’ve lost the feeling to care for the bullshit that you call worry.

I am a void, but you’ve never even tried to fill this space (give me some substance).
I’ve tried to breathe out, but these lungs just can’t seem to inflate (let hope fail me).

Don’t act like you’ve taken the higher road,
But you’re still in control of my every emotion and every desire,
Like the puppet I always was.

(Don’t) this will finally end,
(Act) with or without me,
(Like) but my body will carry on,
(You care) with or without you.
