Insomnia 02:49
I see the doubt in your eyes You disguise A careless word Wish I could take it away I’m sorry I brought it up Brought you down The day is just beginning You glance upon the cryptic lines Etched across the barren walls of my cell Even my skin Am I a fool to seek a place nobody names Only recalled in dreaming? Whisper to me the perfect line of melody I cannot sleep until I sail the seventh sea Upon my lips the taste of blood will never leave It guides me in the shadows
Slow Fire 03:06
Dawn awakens pain and regret Slow fire burning in Unseen motion broke the current Slow fire burning in Underneath the waves Unborn music stays So close to you Yet you see no slow fire in my veins I’m a blind man Yet you watch the slow fire burn my brain Underneath the waves Unborn music fades away
Answer me Hear me Take me anywhere Out in the open air Build a temple, praise the setting sun Smiling as it shines on everyone I’ll do anything to fight the enemy A strong path always leads you through the fire Stand and face the pain with open eyes A parasite in me It’s true, you’re paralyzing me The days that I’ve been waiting for Something in their hearts came open They had long forgotten its name And the people rejoiced Because truth was in the air, clear like the light of day And I will find that light Even on my own And the blood from all battles will not be in vain
Prophecy 02:13
I’m waiting on the world to fall apart I go to sleep beside a lion’s heart … a lion’s heart… I hope to wake up in another space I pray the gods will grant me strength and grace And the light in my eyes The human mind works in mysterious ways I never lost the will to count the days Still counting the days… A thousand healers they have come and gone They never seem to find what’s really wrong Or the light in my eyes Just fighting desire Soon the sky will fall and rise anew On that day, early May We’ll watch over you Weight and stress of time increasing danger of collapsing Light already introducing fractures in the building Still no action taken to escape from disaster We just remain in deadlock Silence
Mountain Cut 02:29
Who will save you now? Called off the search for their love You’re alone now Draw your serrated blade It’s the only way for you to stay awake Cut me off This part of me You’re better off free And break my bones Tear the flesh that we once shared Dead so you may live May you forgive
Hesitate 03:07
Lay them down, black and red There’s no use hiding it Changing all the rules you learned; welcome to the game Don’t give up on yourself Play the cards you’ve been dealt Now see all you could have done from a lonely grave Someone help me Why does no one see I’m on the outside A sheet of glass between It’s like they can’t hear Even when I scream Let this be understood You will speak when you should Even the spirit must obey when the King is played
