Track Name: Tame the Wave
With every breath I feel death lurching a little closer
And I know that I'll keep burning my life away
These weren't my intentions
This all didn't turn out like I planned

We must learn
Yes we must teach ourselves how to embrace
What it is to suffer

From darkness you will garner where the light resides

I crawl through the bayou
I spasmodically writhe like a vermin through each realm
Seeking, searching
Soothsaying
I burrow below
For a peace of mind

For a piece that's mine
I tore it from the whole
I'm entitled to it all
Its fucking mine, I took it, its my own
When I die you'll all fight over to who it belongs

Dance on the knives
Till your mind takes flight
Dance on the knives
Till the forms arise

Caught in the eye
of a hurricane mind
with a hand shakes red and a face shakes white
And you think that its over
That its all alright
Then you gaze inside
And your I divides

You must burn
To be reborn

Dance on the knives till your mind takes flight
Thinker, dance on the knives till the shapes define
And you'll think that its over, dawn of the darkest night
Then you'll see that you're death there's no end in sight

With every breath I feel death lurching a little closer
And I know that I'll keep burning my life away
These weren't my intentions
This all didn't turn out like I planned

When you feel you can't go on, there lies the door
Enter
It lies ahead, waiting for you
Enter
The door

We must learn
Yes we must teach ourselves how to embrace
What it is to suffer

Inside you keep the answers hidden

Pushed down, deep into the spirals of the coil you have to venture
In the darkness there you'll hear laughter echo
Ashes fill your mouth, that bitter taste wisdom

You who held it all in the palm of your hand
You who held it all and yet grasped none of it

Dance on the knives till the flame ignites
You'll think that its closed, you've survived to return to the light
Shudder when you realise you're wrong
Track Name: Galaxy Breaker
With palms outstretched
Your eyes of the wild
I stammer and slur out my words
With the wink of an eye

I don't know what the fuck is happening
The reds descending and I can't see through this haze
I don't know what the fuck is happening
Its never-ending no I can't see this through

With palms outstretched
And the most innocent, alluring jade eyes that I've seen in my life ever
Try to tell me that you do not want this
We both know a lie

I don't know how I could ever think to doubt you
I don't know how I could ever live without you

Was it something I said, something I did?

Sometimes it feels
Like the universe is fucking with me

Are the thoughts inside my head all of my own
Or did they come from somewhere else I don't know

I can't be sure of anything I think I know
This itch
Your skin
Fuck me where can I even begin

I'm drowning in colours
I'm drowning in colours

Hazing, high
I'm choking on impulse
Tell me please if these weapons are futile
I'll feed on this bliss
Follow blind instinct
My animal code
Prise apart the helix

I follow her trail through the flames
Floating above my skeleton
I follow her trail through this maze
Floating beyond my skeleton

Glowing
With palms outstretched I glow
Track Name: The Veil
Glimpses flashing in my head
I stop and think
How'd I get here
Some moments the veil vanishes

Insights squirming from my grasp
I dive, epiphanise that...
Some moments the veil closes in

Chemical, you are a part of me now
What began as an escape
In a death grip I'm now bound

When I'm chasing textures that viper beckons
With fractal questions, visceral lessons
I am changing, embracing this form
Exposing my eyes to an undeniable truth

I am growing
I am changing
I am burning
I am flailing

I scream inside the abyss
Hoping for echoes that I exist
Tell me, have you ever felt alive?

La química
You are apart from me and I'm calling out
I'm floating above, oh so cynical
I suffer stagnant
Constricted, bound

And I know that there's nothing that I might gain from this
But fuck it I am gonna crawl along this path alone

Insights grasped in darkest nights
I see beneath that in the heart of all life
Eternity and death vibrate as one

I scream inside the abyss
Hoping for echoes that I exist
Nothing could prepare me for this time
(The extinguishing of all light)
I dream in endless white bliss
Knowing its futile if I resist
Tell me, have you ever felt alive?

In those depths I felt it for the very first time in my life

I am growing
I am changing

For eternity
Beyond the veil we embrace
Track Name: Climhazzard
It comes to me in murmurs
I feel it drawing close
This is the answer I've been waiting and waiting to know

It trickles through my fingers
It burrows into my soul
There is a question that has guided the path I chose

All you've sacrificed, in solemn service spent
To purpose to your time, to try to feel content
You've wandered from your path, in your blind transfixion
You've lost yourself to the one within

I'm selling my soul for the truth
I'm scouring the texts for the clues
I'm speaking in tongues, reading runes
I'm bequeathing these words to you

It comes to me in murmurs
I feel it past the fold
I have an inkling that what I seek I've always known

It comes to me from an ancient future
In becoming aware I lost the infinite
So if life began as a disjointed speck
Then so shall it end in the wholeness of death

In eternal death I return to the infinite

The fear that we all feel
Each of us must face
The unspeakable must be spoken
In accepting what awaits you shall break free of
the chains, that bind your spirit to this place

Its looming on our minds, behind each of our masks
Consuming those of us who will not accept the farce
Unspoken, unwritten and forced out of our thoughts
Waking from its slumber, its claws clinch you as it roars

I am death, I am your fate
We are bound throughout the eons
You cannot escape from me
I drag the threads of all creation
Into my spool as I weave new life

All you've sacrificed, the solemn service spent
To purpose in your life, to make you feel content
You've wandered from path, in your blind transfixion
You've lost yourself to the one within

You've taken over my life
With all that you have promised
There must be some truth, some truth to your words
I can't stand the thought that
There's nothing more than
This search that I am on for something more
Track Name: Calamity Rondo
A mask, an idea
Spit pity to the graves, shame of shames
The first move I'll never make
A torrent of silence cascades

Speak simple
Speak symbolically
Speak destiny
Speak true, speak free

Flay the backs of the beasts
That cart your burden to the deep
The devil does not go further than here
One night you must, one night you must

Unmask, an idea

Heed the visions you've seen
Muster the strength you know you will need
The angel does not go further than here
One night you must, this night you must take heart

To take flight
You must keep climbing higher and higher
From the spiral of woe you did scry hope
In the binds of, that sanctuary everything was never as it seemed

Open your mind
Breathe in and take flight

Unmask an idea
Unveil truth, watch as the illusion it disappears

Its waiting for you
Its always laid waiting for you
You dive in the fire but the flames don't burn you
You are reborn
Cast your husk to the pit, climb to the light of the dawn

Its waiting its waiting for you
To finally see, what you are free to be
You'll learn your true name
Death is but the next door of this grand journey

What we've raised to the sky
We must raze to the ground
The barriers built up
Must all be tore down

To unmask the ideal

Its waiting for you
The eternal moment that's hidden in view
The divinest of bliss that surrounds all you do
Open the door
Your perception is key, yes you need nothing more

Its waiting for you
Its always laid waiting for you
You dive in the fire but the flames don't burn you
You are reborn
Cast your husk to the pit, climb to the light of the dawn

Its waiting its waiting for you
To finally see, what you are free to be
You'll learn your true name
Death is the but the next door of this grand journey
