Track Name: Thoughtcrimes
Our problems today are laughable compared to history
We'll always be known for what we're worth
It's a broken age, in time
And years from now will you take pride in our story

I fear that one day our knowledge will indulge
In the fruit of corruption
We've been misguided by the forceful hand of man

Hypnotized into a race without a cause
They thrive on the insufficient
Who are being fed lies but only seek the truth

I will lead you to your peace of mind

It was never meant to be chosen by the few that lead this world
Our fate is our decision

Are these the memories that we want to leave behind
This is a legacy that we must stand for
Maybe life didn't have to be this way
Or maybe we're pretending
Let's break the curse break the curse
Before time runs out

When we've all been dispensed will there be justice for our actions
We stood together, as one we fall
When the time has come and passed and we've all been forgiven
We'll wait and wait for the sun to rise again

Relinquish a world of defeat, the sun will rise again


Are these the memories that we want to leave behind
This is a legacy that we must stand for
Maybe life didn't have to be this way
Or maybe we're pretending
Let's break the curse break the curse
Before time runs out

The darkest hour is over
If you wish to be complete
We are completely free of conspiracy
Lets see through brighter eyes

They thrive on the insufficient who are being fed lies
But only seek the truth
Track Name: Break Away
I hope these winding roads will repave their paths to our needs
What is deserving? Is it the value of oneself?
Or the knowledge between us?
We have a right to receive
And give through wisdom

We are not alone in the struggle
Our lives are faced with
What will we choose to abandon
With expansion comes sacrificial needs
This is where we chose to live

We will rebuild our shattered dreams
Wearing broken hearts on our sleeves
We will follow the path to better days
So let us break away

This path laid before us, has come with direction
To a place where harm is no factor
The motives and quality of life
And how we face them will decide where you go from here

We're not alone sometimes I forget
What I truly am, a better man

I can't be the one to repair what you've lost
We will rebuild

We will rebuild our shattered dreams
Wearing broken hearts on our sleeves
We will follow the path to better days
So let us break away

Ashes to ashes, the buildings burn
We watch them fall with no remorse
Ashes to ashes, the buildings burn
The buildings burn

This is a celebration of what it means to me
To defeat the fears of the falling

We all follow the path to better days
Break away, break away
Track Name: Aggro
Hardly even breathing; let the air release from my lungs
I will lead the life I was after

This will be the day I'm set free
From my weakness
I am the honest traitor
And it defeated me but I'm in rapture
You cannot see what I have weathered
With or without you the story continues

Now I stand higher than my demons
I'm in a place where no lie, no distraction,
And no fear will enter my mind

These thoughts may wander, I am held captive no more

Enhance the senses that we have and find our way

Your life will expedite this, you are not alone


I'm an entity mistaken for an image
And there is more to me than meets the eye

This will not be taken from
Me again I'd rather die than to see through your eyes

To find a brighter way leave it to your fate
To guide you through
What's destined for your life
Should be determined by a sacrifice

I will be the one to terminate you
I will never feel grief for eternity
You shall feel the power
I grant myself this life
I live in reason

To find a brighter way leave it to your fate
To guide you through
What's destined for your life
Should be determined by a sacrifice

I cannot bear to be what you have become
This time; bring on the test now
I will conceal my world
Track Name: Ghost In The Blueprints
Let's take control of all the things you think you know
One day you'll realize what your life could have been

Silence discontinues at the thought of anger
Breaking free from the boundaries around me
I've had enough of the pain and misfortune

I don't even think you notice
Or you just don't even care

Grant me the power to relieve myself of this imposed misery
I stand here in hopes of remorse on the entirety of those who have will

When everything has cleared you'll know that you have found it
Your own peace of mind

Remove the suffering at any cost
Nothing is worth more than me
Bring me the strength to replenish a world I have built

You don't know what you're missing
Get in control before you fall into the great unknown
Build your future from the past
Learning from mistakes is what makes the lesson last

I built this world for me, built it to call our own
When nothing else is worth it come forth to me the battle shall be won
When everything has cleared you'll know that you have found it
Your own peace of mind protect it with pride

This worlds been buried
This worlds been tortured

This is my last chapter, to bring to my grave
I will not fail the ones who still love me today

This is my last chapter, to bring to my grave, I will not fail
The ones who love me today, until today

Until today (until today)
I will not fail the ones who love me today

Painting the image we saw in our nightmares
We will destroy our silence

Here is your time reclaim what is yours
Track Name: The Mark Of Man
The hours and days that I've spent just to find the answers
I have conquered all of my fears
Disappointed in a worthless existence
I now know the way to live
To find true happiness
You must start from scratch
I will surely be loved

Day by day lie after lie
You will go too far
Now nobody's there what's the easy way out

Ignore the substance that hides your true emotions
The illness continues but I'm not sick
My story will be heard
Keep your body graceful, to the mountain peaks we climb
The view is distorted but I have overcome it all

I can finally breathe again
My mind lies dormant removing the source now

I know that I have been here before
So full of indecision
I bare the mark of a man who has failed
I now bare the mark of a man who knows

I know the way to live life, now
I can showing you the meaning
If you will follow me
It's not easier said than done
You can have it if your heart glows
You can feel it in your dreams
The new feeling will rid the nightmares

If you truly want to live follow the ones that make life worth living
Accept your mistakes and dream to the fullest

Ignore the substance that hides your true emotions
The illness continues but I'm not sick
My story will be heard
Keep your body graceful, to the mountain peaks we climb
The view is distorted but I have overcome it all

I now have everything it only takes one step
Lets show the world me at my best
Track Name: There's More To Life
We're told when we're young
We can be anything
And everything is gonna be just fine
So we laugh and play
Fulfilling our days with nothing but happiness

As we grow more obstacles get in the way
We must abide by the rules made up by the fools
Who've stricken society

Cause the farther you go the harder you fall
Our instincts are quickly fading away
We're captive but free supposedly
I'm sure we've all thought to ourselves
There's more to life

I'm feeling the pressure from every direction
This daily routine is skewing perception
As I lay awake, I'm pestered by thoughts that consume my integrity

We always expect the worst
I am speaking these words cause you're not alone
If you feel the same
Make the change with me

Cause the father you go the harder you fall
Our instincts are quickly fading away
We're captive but free, supposedly
I'm sure we've all thought, I'm sure we've all thought
The farther you go the harder you fall our instincts are quickly fading away
We're captive but free, supposedly
I'm sure we've all thought to our selves, there's more to life
