Track Name: Wilt
Fighting for what I believe in
I won't be compromised

Does it matter what I say
You have already generalized

If this isn't for you
You can use the door
I won't defend myself,
Not anymore

Why should I explain myself
It just makes no sense
Hearing your opinion just makes me more dense

Yes I'd rather sink than have my head float to the clouds

Create for myself something that makes me proud
Keep my feet on the ground
Convey this message clear and loud

My time is precious
I won't waste it on filth
My mind thrives
While all theirs just wilt

My time so precious
I won't waste it on filth
My mind thrives
While all theirs just wilt
Track Name: Gazing
Gazing into the abyss
The longer I stare
It stares right back into me
As it looks into me
It sees what I
What I truly am
And what I truly am
Is revealed to me
The longer I gaze

I love
I hate
I fear
Its too late

Further down the rabbit hole
I'm here
I'm drawn
Your true self shows
As it looks into you
As it looks into me
Drifting away

Battle not with monsters
I am not your equal
Your level is too low
Broken veins
Blood will flow
A stain that won't disappear

Breaking chains
Flailing wildly
Escaping the abyss

But I go
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper.....
Track Name: 33 Black Flags
fields full of struggle
stomachs full of empty
morning of mourning again
tridents raised into the sky
we move forward, tridents high
pull the wool up from your eyes
we won't forget
neither will you
would be heroes born standing up
they raise the flags, in shadow no more
we raise the flag, in shadow no more

reaching for the blue
out of the yellow

no longer doubt, we rise above x4

raise the flag
hang the flags
be the flag

in shadow no more
Track Name: The Engine
Disillusionment
Derivative
Deprived
Devoid of delivery
The wheel is turning
Perpetual devastation
In the face of adversity
Defiance
Disappointment
Drudgery
Drowning
Drowning
Drowning
Drowning
The walls keep too much in
The walls keep getting higher
lioness dominates the plain
Assertion of who you are
I won't die anymore
Now you're the hunted
Track Name: Two Wolves
a war never ending
this battle, it drives me, seduces me
I need to know who will win
I live amongst the pack and wonder:
who else struggles? who else wanders hungry?
2 sides of a coin and this belly aches
trying to find a balance
its impossible
hunger is insatiable
baring sharp teeth
gnawing, tearing
never enough x2

who wins? the one you feed. x4
