Track Name: Bastards Of A Kind
Such a faint impression in my head that creates a complex figure
It’s the next thing you should know, it’s the next thing you should know

All the words I hate that make me feel so intolerant without reason
It’s the next thing you should know, it’s the next thing you know

My senses arise in a solitary form
Descending from high as a miracle unknown
I’ve changed in time, still unable to amend
The voice subsides with the rivals you defend

How can I ever let you down?
How can I ever make you smile, when I hate me too?
Track Name: Common Ground
Once a friend, now a foe that repents…shit
I found me a way that lets me tell just by a look how well you play your part
I came across a method that defines just how effectively you’re set apart

I’m sure you wish you had a way to show
The wisdom of transmuting friend to whore
And when you stand across me pure as gold
I just enjoy knowing how easily you’re sold

There’s probably an instance where I don’t obstruct the path of your nobility
It happens when you sense, you can just fuck your way into tranquility

It’s good to know how far your morals go
To filter trepidation from your hollow world
And when you stand across me pure as gold
I just enjoy knowing how easily you’re sold

Get it through your head, there’s no common ground
You dragged it over your famished mouth
Now you call it friend but I don’t hear a sound

So cradle all your trophies making sure that you ignore
The fact the dumbest thing you ever thought
Was maybe you could handle what you score

No common ground/Don’t call it friend

I know you have a place where you get everything you need
To keep your conscience clear
Just don’t forget my face, I bet you tried
But couldn’t make it simply disappear

Do you run the figures through your mind?
When your dick dictates the way you live your life
And when you sleep your righteous sleep at night
Do you meet others like me wishing you to die?
Track Name: Dragam Alom
[Sometimes I wonder if it’s the silence I miss more than the beauty…
Sometimes I just sit and stare at the others, knowing just like them how little of myself is still my own...
I can always say no and I am often tempted to…but then I would own even less of my life…
Nothing happens, something changes…and you are all caught in the middle…]

It’s not the aura you let loose, for just a view they all can pay
It’s not the lies that help seduce, their every sordid touch away

It’s what you wear over your soul, and take it off when no one stares
A cold regret swallows you whole, a life for which too few will care

And when something changes sides
Within your dearest dreams
How stale, how pale this infinity confines

Never too close, never too keen, barely part of dumb romance
Always willing, always ready, but we only get one chance

And when something changes sides
Within your dearest dreams
How stale, how pale this infinity confines

And when nothing happens right
Within your dearest dreams
Always embrace the way attention feels or dies

You strain to show yourself the difference in you
Between the lies and what could pass as true
So go on, stagger for a reward, all the times you renounced to ignore
Swallow the drug in your shroud of remains, God blessed in vain
Track Name: Feed My Own
I’m a drop in the ocean, a grain of sand washed away
I’m a war without reason, a countdown to your decay
Back down beyond shame
Hands off of me, I’ve no one to blame

Part of you denies my will,
Is it not the other way around?
Nothing seems to calm your thrill,
Getting closer to be lost and found

I’m a leader to your kind, dead set to walk alone
I am trust in your last hope, a dice roll that feeds my own
Can’t get to you, no way out
Bound to pretend, shut your mouth

Second chance has proven right
A free fall in zero gravity
Precious mind, but dead inside
I’ve let you down below to set me free

I am drawn in my own spin
Ruled by the secrecy of vows
You feel how it caves in
Put aside these riddles and move on...
Track Name: Path (Masterpiece, pt. I)
Shy away from one place to another, get to linger all the same
Shackled on a path too plain, with no one to bother

Reaching for the only destination, now you know just how to claim
The definition and the name of a figure father

Just a position you’ve been trying to make sense of
Only to realize you never get far
And when the phone decides to ring you’re in the same hole
Still learning how to deal with your own scar

A situation you’ve been trying to make sense of
Only to realize you never get far
And when your bones begin to shatter under pressure
It’s kinda hard to stay upon the path

So you save for when the days get better and the rain is far behind
For when the last thing on your mind is a simple way to make your pain real…
Track Name: Disparity (Masterpiece, pt. II)
Having never drawn respect, beaten down into neglect
To begging and shame, so close…
Having no weak point to show, you built the man you wanted so
With wailing and rage

Now you take it all apart, when you were so…

So close to hearing, so close to hearing
So close, yet still gone, close yet not real

Making sure you voice things loud
You make everybody proud by virtue of flame

Just when everybody thought you were done with being taught
You’re broken again

Now you take it all apart, when you were so…
Track Name: Conflict (Masterpiece, pt. III)
Some decided they had reasons to keep up
Some were helplessly outdated
Some suggested that a slip-up never kills
No one cried out when they had to

You found ways to make your whisper louder still
Though you seem to be forgetting
That becoming you was never my own will
Now that’s exactly what you’re getting

Words fly like stones in this glass house of mine
As you push through the years to the back of my mind
It will cost you my dear, it will kill you inside
Because hurting you keeps me constantly alive

Words fly like stones, fly and break all these years, fly away…
Track Name: Error Step
Break off the endless sway of silence

I took it further, shedding the thorns around my mind
Planting loose regrets for those you leave behind
You found something old and tried to make it somehow new (Lo and behold)
You gave it life with one big lie, you tried to make it true

For every step I follow there’s a purpose I adore
I’m picking up the pace to leave this enemy ignored
For every wrong intention please excuse my little crime
I’ll smile at your face and keep this moment till I die

Cash and prayer, holy profit, sacred fear
Always touch now that tomorrow’s here

Climb the cross for someone you thought you could trust
As the martyrs turn all your hope to dust
When nothing stays there’s nothing I want more
Let no one pray to gods that weren’t here before...
Track Name: The Odds Are Even
Staring through my eyes so frail and empty
For once I’ll join this age of incomplete

I’ve fallen victim to my craft, to the danger in my art, I follow blindly
My fabricated insight for just the fraction of your sight, I follow kindly

Stand up, by me, embrace my need and change in hibernation
No pride inside of anything, so waste all your aggravation

“The eyes can only see what the mind projects”

Hostile and reverent I daydream in disarray
Stay back unseen, how obscene, you can only observe and follow kindly
A lesson learned from time to time, free falling,
Hopeless, thinking wide, come follow blindly

Wasting our time, trailing the light of a vision so incomplete
all the tension and madness
Even the odds, now that I’ve worn out a lifetime in favor of
all my ungrateful strangers...
Track Name: Widow On The Hill
[instrumental]
Track Name: Willow On The Hill
Pictures hidden in a word, frozen in a frame so worn
Fingers weaving down the hill that I bleed on

Still waiting for the sun to fall
Still fading, like the light I will be gone

Puppets thrown inside a well, sharing only silent eyes
Lipstick letters on the mirror spelling what the shadow hides

Still holding on a perfect year
Still driven by your one and only fear

Miss the point and I’ll be there to see you crawl
Change the meaning and you’ll never know
Time is waiting for the day it all will fail
Still I’m hiding from what’s mine again

Driving circles on a road of ice and pain
Always wearing a disguise that keeps me sane

Still dreaming of a quiet day
Still knowing that the dream will fade away

Ask your nightmares, all they do is say your name
Speak, but hurry, I’m about to wake
Time is waiting for the day it all will fail
Still I’m hiding from what’s mine again...
