Track Name: Ocean Noise
Open wide, no eyes don't lie
Repress the doubt inside
No more thoughts
Don't watch the clocks, oh,
Time does not abide

Align yourself with impossible And unattainable illusions

Heart enraged and her
Mind's enslaved, oh,
Her face depraved
It's just ocean noise
The crashing waves
She must obey, I can't
Hear her pray,
Just ocean noise

Dark as night, refuse the light
Not all is black and white
Primal fear the lines aren't clear now
Choose to fight or fly

Align yourself with impossible
And unattainable illusions

Heart enraged and her
Mind's enslaved, oh,
Her face depraved
It's just ocean noise
The crashing waves
She must obey, I can't
Hear her pray,
Just ocean noise

Break down the walls
Break them all
Hidden fears and compromise
Complete denial
Suppressing sighs,
Empty heart just play the part
You must be whole you mustn't hold

Heart enraged and her
Mind's enslaved, oh,
Her face depraved
It's just ocean noise
The crashing waves
She must obey, I can't
Hear her pray,
It's just ocean noise
Track Name: Good Intentions
I'm okay, yes I am fine
The every day expected lies
No one knows what's on my mind
Just written pages, line by line

And I'm just scared that a day will come when the world
Will decide I've been hurting too long, and when I try
To show you,
The bruises that ache in
Every vein you'll tell me
'I see nothing,'

I'm not stupid, but I'm not wise
Wish I knew the meaning of compromise
And realize that it doesn't mean
Giving somebody else
Everything

And I'm just scared that a day will come when the world
Will decide I've been hurting too long, and when I try
To show you,
The bruises that ache in
Every vein you'll tell me
'I see nothing'

I can fill pages
I'll play the game
I'll weep when I hear that song
I can fill pages
I'll play the game
I'll weep every time I hear that Song

And I'm just scared that a day will come when the world
Will decide I've been hurting too long, and when I try
To show you,
The bruises that ache in
Every vein you'll tell me
'I see nothing'
Track Name: Embryo
I demand the whole universe
I banned the moon
And the stars dispersed
Unnecessary,
A child who wears the crown
I reign over no one
Not a soul bows down

I got no memories
To keep me satisfied
Just these melodies
That keep me up at night
And deep inside of me
There's a light that's hiding
I have no one left to satisfy me

Our worlds collide
Can't shake the fear inside
We won't survive
Another turn, another fall

I got no memories
To keep me satisfied
Just these melodies
That keep me up at night
And deep inside of me
There's a light that's hiding
I have no one left to satisfy me
Track Name: Wasted Time
Tragic: read all about it
Another loss for the war
Extended, but I don't even care if you leave here or you don't

Just forgo desire again
Ignite the fire

You said 'I will reclaim what's mine'
Overruled, objectified
Never noticed all those warning signs now I'm left
With only wasted time

The panic, I don't understand it
My senses have long since decayed
Expended, ready for the ending
Refuse to show I'm afraid

Just forgo desire again
Ignite the fire

You said 'I will reclaim what's mine'
Overruled, objectified
Never noticed all those warning signs now I'm left
With only wasted time

You said 'I will reclaim what's mine'
Overruled, objectified
When the gentle breath of love subsides, all that's left
Is all of that wasted time
All of that wasted time
Track Name: Temporary
When I awoke I sensed you were gone
Long gone
I didn't cry or clutch at my side
But something in me died

Nobody knows
How far this life goes
I'm losing control
I'm losing control
Because

You're so far away from home
And there are things I can't face alone
Impending thoughts I can't control
My whispered pleas fall to the floor

Whiskey and wine
Fear gripping my spine
All things temporary
They say you'll be fine with the passing of time
But the nights feel so long

Nobody knows
How long this life goes
I'm out of control
I'm out of control
Because

You're so far away form home
And there are things I can't face alone
There are demons I can't fight
They're all that get me through the night

Maybe one day I won't have to implore anymore
To the fates or the gods, to the dealer of cards
To give back what they stole
Track Name: Undo
Water's rising up my waist
But I've adjusted to its cold embrace
I'm hardly fazed
Half solutions, repainted walls
Empty resolutions, standing tall
But nothing's changed at all

When will I look in somebody's eyes and thing
'Yeah, here I'll be alright, and I'll be safe, I'll be just fine'
And if I could turn back the time and escape all of
The problems I would wind myself into
And I'd undo
The things that led me to...

The window's cracks are making webs
It's still intact but hanging by a thread
The seasons change faster than the locks did on the
Day that you stormed out
So now I go without

When will I look in somebody's eyes and think,
'Yeah, here I'll be alright, and I'll be safe, I'll be just fine,'
And if I could turn back the time and escape all of
The problems I would wind myself into
And I'd undo

When will someone's arms not feel so strange
And will I say, 'But this time it will change,' again
I won't predict the end
And if I could turn back the time and escape all of
The problems I would wind myself into
And I'd undo whatever led me to
You.
Track Name: Night Terrors
In the night a force is gripping, dragging, ripping, pulling and constricting,
Paralyzed by something strange and foreign,
Completely deranged and horror strikes me now like
I have never felt before
I know it's not a dream there's something more, I'm wide awake, it's not a dream, it's something more

Conscious now I'm getting really scared and every basic
Function's now impaired it feels like something's really there,
It's in my skin it's in the air,
It won't let go I feel it everywhere, I hear it whisper
And I hear it shout
In languages I never learned about and it cannot be real
No it cannot be ignored
I know it's not a dream it's something more, I'm wide awake, it's not a dream it's something

They'll think I'm sleeping
Wide awake, not dreaming

Night terrors find me here
All I can do now is wait for clear...

Weighted down by hands of lead that seem to cling to
Every pore and every thread
I'm plagued by thoughts of fear and dread
As blood is rushing to my head, and I don't know if I can Turn away, I feel it breathing in My face and I don't know what I am up against.
Cuz nothing's making any sense

They'll think I'm sleeping
Wide awake not dreaming

Night terrors
Find me here
All I can do now is wait for clear day
