Track Name: Surrender
I felt the vines move within
I felt my heart bleed again
By not a stranger, by not a friend
And with its words it pulled me in

Out on the road, hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender

I watched it move from the ceiling to the floor
Was it you or it I adored
A hypnotism impossible to ignore
The more I took, it took me more

Out on the road, hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender

I held on to the reins
Let go or be dragged in its name
And I looked back at you, set fire, set ablaze
And I walked down the streets for miles
A gaunt face held in exile

‘Cause I was out on the road hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender
Track Name: Drowned
For many a year, this face of sullen tears
Look down, you left her here
In a room of sanguine mirrors

It’s carved and it strays
This path it deviates
A walk, a dive, a wade
Into waters of the darkest age

But in a silent way, the hand it takes
Circling around, the birth, the mouth
It’s stolen and untrue, this mark in you
And soon it will be found, left to drown

For many a year, this face of sullen tears
Look down, you left her here
In a room of sanguine mirrors
Track Name: Infernal
A prick of rose’s thorn across the break, across the morn
And I walk blindfolded into the wake, into the storm
And please avert your eyes, the dust it falls, the dust it lies
And in the fire’s claw incernate, they burned them all
And in the bird’s eye view the fires bled, the fires grow
And we walk blindfolded feeling no trace of all we knew
And please avert your eyes from earthly cracks, earthly cries
And in the final throw incernate beauty we know
And she was a haven for me
And she was a haven for thee
And she, a holy vessel breathes
And you sit and watch her bleed
And you torched a hole in the sky
And you watched your earnings fly
And you sit there as she lies
In blood right before our eyes
And in the wake fires burn, fires take
And at the wake ashes fall, ashes forsake
And at the wake we will fall, we will ache
And at the wake we’ll recall beauty’s face
Track Name: Washed Away
Modern industrial life
Takes your soul in its fangs
We might as well be all washed away

If I don’t hang on tight, if I let myself stray
I will lose my sight and I will be washed away

And, oh, some days I walk my own
Oh, my own pace
It takes away the heartache

It seems no one has their own eyes
And we all speak from the cage
Are we living in fright
Consenting to be washed away

I’ll lose my heart, my own eyes
I’ll lose the smell of the rain
As I walk, aimless in the night
I will be washed away

And, oh, some days I brush the palm
Oh, of my hand
Across the face of this forgotten land

I left my print in the sand
Organic mark made
I got up and walked in the night
And I refused to be washed away

The burden of modern life
The heart it beats and it prays
Forever to walk in the night
And never be washed away

And, oh, some days I walk my own
Oh, my own pace
It takes away the heartache

And oh some days, I brush the palm
Oh, of my hand
Across the face of this forgotten land
Track Name: Metamorphosis
A septant year alive, not a drop in poison’s name
I walk the streets alive, barely knowing my own name
Metamorphosis, the cut, the wreck, the blade
And in my own eyes, the light, the heat, the blaze

‘Cause there was blood on the view
And we took it and we wrote anew
Left in waiting for the marks to go away
And all the entries of the dark messes were made

‘Cause there was blood on the view
And we took it and we wrote anew

Fabric of shame and sorrow’s name
Reverse and retrace the tears on your face
You lived through, lived through, lived through
Track Name: Dew
I watched the wind make the roses bend
Does X truly mark the end
You say thorns scratch your face
In blood and scar you can’t erase
Does time really grow anew
Does poison drop the same as dew (in the morning)

I held the wings of a dove
As you held me like hand in glove

Flickering light, the world it burns for you
In holy fright as many try to save you

You say thorns scratched your face
In blood and scar you can not erase

I guess that X truly marks the end
I watched the wind make the roses bend
I held the wings of a dove
As you held me like hand in glove
Track Name: Shroud
I came out in a shroud
Bathed in all the waste I’d seen
And the rain rang loud
With that old familiar sting

The poison runs, the flame and the wick
My heart burns in it
The colors run, the sound of sick
And we drown in it

Keep my head above the ground
Heaven knows I’m buried now
Holy war came and gone
Now they say it won’t be long

The poison runs, the flame and the wick
My heart burns in it
The colors run, the sound of sick
And we drown in it
Track Name: Entity
Billions of entities here alive
Who do we uphold, who do we decry
And who takes the throne and who the soil
Who do we love and who do we spoil

‘Cause everyone’s got a mark
Tell me how you wade in the dark
And some have a helping hand
And others are left barren in the wind

Higher one, how do you abandon
All of those with trauma’d religion
Higher one, you promise to enlighten
Except for those with trauma’d religion

‘Cause everyone’s got a mark
Show me how you wade in the dark
Track Name: Light
One bell to ring as you wanted, eternally
One bell to sing as you hunted, eternally

And I will call on you forever
And I will call on you forever

And in the wind and the heart, eternally
And in the swell of the lark, eternally
Eternally

And they will chime forever
And they will chime forever
Track Name: The Gates at the End
I walked through the gates at the end
You weren’t far, far from me then
I would wait for you
In blood, holy and true

Cynical until it breaks, the words decay
The voice it cuts, the voice betrays
You can trace the lines broken hearts make
Run your fingers through the cracks of eternal ache

I walk through the gates at the end
They’d been marked by the pens of forgotten women
Pennyroyal we burn
For every forgotten word

And I cannot brace for the end
A long road

And I cannot brace for the end, the end
