It can't be bargained with...
It can't be reasoned with...
It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear...
And it absolutely will not stop...
Ever...
Until you are dead.

Track Name: End Game
Brace myself for this
False delivery
Watch them all clear a path
Backward progression
Marks a new session
Force the color away

Did I even know that…
Did I even show that…
Did I even stand back and lie down?

Brace myself for this
Unremittingly
Long and desperate fall
Set the fleeting scene
This might soon be seen
Better known in the end

Did I even know that…
Did I even show that…
Did I even stand back and lie down?

Take these dreams, and make them mine
I will leave this all behind

Did I even know that…
Did I even show that…
Did I even lie?

Take these dreams, and make them mine
I will leave this all behind
Track Name: Past Prologue
This hollow vessel defines my time
But I’ve somehow managed to see this through
And now I’m done fighting right with wrong

Fast forward through those empty nights
Pass over through those empty sights

One wish
One fall
One miss
One call

I see the past in ashen light
One lonely truth encased in strife

One wish
One fall
One miss
One call

I often wonder why it ends this way
I often tell myself to stay away
I’ve come and gone
But this won’t let go
I often wonder why it ends this way

Falling away
I’m wasting away
A sought out escape
Is a lucid mistake

I often wonder why it ends this way
I often tell myself to stay away
I’ve come and gone
But this won’t let go
I often wonder why it ends this way

Falling away
I’m wasting away
A sought out escape
Is a lucid mistake
Track Name: All Hail The King
Look them straight in the eye
Let them choose to decide
Watch them search for a lie
Selling all of their pride
Give them plenty of time
For a feeble reply
Watch them suddenly clear out

I’ve walked the line
I’ve done my time
Now it’s mine

Lose myself for a while
Holding on to denial
Separate from the light
Emphasizing this plight
Given space to align
All these brilliant designs
This might suddenly fill out

I’ve walked the line
I’ve done my time
Now it’s mine

I’ve forced my hand
A wanted instability
Along the way
I’ve made a new reality
There’s no way back
A wanted inability
And in my mind
I’ve won this whole damn thing

These ordinary minds
A calming rush takes over me
So long to empathy
Don’t hide…defy!

I’ve forced my hand
A wanted instability
Along the way
I’ve made a new reality
There’s no way back
A wanted inability
And in my mind
I’ve won this whole damn thing
Track Name: Commendatori
As I stand here from afar
I can’t help but wonder how
You’ve held sway over this crowd
With your never ending sounds, just go

I’m breakin’
I’m shakin’
Oh in this state, I’m not ok

If you gave me just one chance
I would gladly show you how
We’d be better off without
All the bullshit that you’ve spouted out, just go

I’m breakin’
I’m shakin’
Oh in this state, I’m not ok

The more you say, they defend you
The more you speak, they commend you
The more you lie, they surrender
The more you say, I surrender

I’m breakin’
I’m shakin’
Oh in this state, I’m not ok
