Track Name: War At My Side
The life
I’m owed
I’m told is gone
They bought and sold me out
How could
They take
And break my faith
Then sink
To think
This time we wouldn’t blink

Secret messages

No one heard
No one saw
No one paid
For what was done to me
(If you ever take a stand and walk out)
Now you want
Want it all
Takes what’s left
And give it away for free
(If you'd ever take my hand I'd show you what we've done)
You distort my pain and deem it a pleasure
The mess that we’ve become
Now i’ve lost everything
Even with the war at my side
(I will never give up the war at my side)

A lie
So bold
That unity would hold
I know how others see me
A big
Mistake
The side you take
Deserved
Or earned
It’s all burned
And now no one’s safe

Secret messages

You distort my pain and take great pleasure
No one heard, no one heard, no one heard
Well, you’ll hear me now

No one heard
Well you’ll hear
Yeah you’ll hear
Well you’ll hear me now
One and done
One and damage done
Track Name: The Storm
Treasure the charm (hunt me down)
That you have wished upon (Hunt me down)
Through golden grace (Swallowed down)
Now the storm is coming , coming

Swinging the blade (In rusted crown)
Of every lie you laid (And where you’ll drown)
In golden graves (buried deep)
Cause the storm is coming, coming

We stand, you fall

Shift in the tide (hunted down)
Leaves no where left to hide (on broken ground)
A new embrace (a new divide)
And the calm is coming, coming

We stand, you fall
Track Name: Prayer of Smoke
What do they know
of grit and taming fire
with lily white hands and eyes
with no desire
to see this life as more than waiting on another
how can they know where power lies?

You hear the scream
of metal that’s as good as your name
the spinning wheels
you swear that they all say the same
and in the heat
that most would jump just to escape
you stay to see the devil without a shape

So here I am
with twisted fingers forming a prayer
from steel and smoke
my message it hangs in the air
my burning lungs may never sing
but are my witness
to what no human words can ever express

My word my bind
pin pulled, straight line
my task, clear mind
won’t fall down now

Lower your head
they say
go where you’re led
don’t stray
I put my faith
in this feeling of freedom
each day mine
I’ll shut my eyes
under silent skies
I’ll shut my eyes

Guilty and pure wander blind
believing we are blessed
and in our bodies confined
are numb to consequence
in what we trust as our guide
we find our final test
as salt or seed is how we’ll rest

Can it be wrong
to listen to the calm in your head?
To value work
for which we know we were meant?
To not sit back
and wait on hollow bonds to be done
or given bread from the barrel of a gun?

My word always my bind
with my pin pulled kick the straight line
it’s in my task I’m of a clear mind
off like a shot
pushed hard as she got
they’ll hear me coming

Lower your head
they say
go where you’re led
don’t stray
I put my faith
in this feeling of freedom
each day mine
I’ll shut my eyes
under silent skies
I’ll shut my eyes
under silent skies
I’ll shut my eyes
Track Name: Nameless
moonlight holds the spark
awake, not alone
omens in shade
rage and give way

a call from the rocks
the art of the lost
burn bright

soothing envy
ease of the prey
give up the ghost
go gentle, feel no loss

pulled by
a call from the rocks
defy
for art and the cost
burn bright
for all that was bled
nameless

lucky few
who bear the pale, true soul
the madness of hope
how brief, how bright
