Track Name: A Lucid Omega
a lucid omega

see the math in the dragonfly wing
understand that the next big thing
will be the knowlege of the ancient ones
there are many earths
there are many suns
for now the seasons are changing
this is the reaping
so hide child while you still have eyes left to see

we will use the sacred sequence
to arrange and maintain balance
in a world of contructed chaos
and hidden equations
limitless number of colors, tastes, and sensations
i can feel the breeze on my face
for the first time
and it's warm embrace
and the it's over
and then we're done

what do you do
when you figure out you were the monster
all of this time
what do you do
when you are the one
who pulled out the plug and allowed this to die
but i brought all of the pain
how can you make that lesson remain
before it drives you insane
the damage is all but done now
i can feel the breeze on my face
for the first time
and then it's over
and then it's done
Track Name: Burnt At Both Ends
burnt at both ends

what's worth living and what's worth dying for
there's a lot who give in
for they thought there was no cure
i'll take what i'm given
and then i'll stand and in line
believe what is written
the choicce was never mine

show the world
you've opened up your eyes
i believe that we become what we need to survive
can you read it on my lips
the proverb all but neatly fits
a product of our home
the dog was never thrown a bone

you'll know it when
you see it my love
a flood from below
and a fire from above
the ground will open
and swallow you whole
make no mistake
the bell now tolls for you

we burn the candle at both ends
it's the plce where the friendship ends
not written in stone but
on the wind
sometime i lay awake at night
thinking something's not quite right
but i think i'll be ok

show the world
that you've opened up your eyes
i beleive we become
what we need to survive
show the world
you've opened your eyes
Track Name: Crippled Chameleon
crippled chameleon

can you look me in the eye
do you feel like a bigger man
all the while not having a rat's chance in hell

i'll tell you
from just this past september
all the way to the forth of july
trust and honor
for you were once my brother
but that all changed
in the blink of an eye
i feel the sizzle rise from beneath me
and with it confusion
rage and dismay
the knife sinks in so very deeply
your mouth's a hole filled with lies and decay

turned quick from friend to foe
you spoke of things you didn't know
i guess you do have to lie to make friends
thanks to you i learned a lesson
watch who you put your faith into
and it's coming around again
back on you times ten

brother
in the end
it's comin' around again
back on you times ten
was it worth how good she looked
this time for your goose is cooked

you lied brother
Track Name: Learning From The Ashes
learning from the ashes

shapeless now
just a ghost alone again
endless nights
haunted by a selfishness
wondering mind
spend forever on the mend
unable to
redemption's ever lost for me

but this is the house that i have built
and this is what we have become

hurtful words
cannot be taken back
end this now just before my heart attacks
cry your tears
and rise from your knees
a better version of what once was

but this is the house that i have built
and this is what we have become
so i view you as a lesson my dear
a template for what not to do again

for the sake of our ancient exchange
i'll fan the flames of discontent
so as to turn this bridge to ashes and be done
time is now your medcation
so with these words
as my testamnet
vibrations rising
as i shed this skin
we built this house
slowly then tore it down.
from these ashes two whole hearts were found
Track Name: Leftover Savages
leftover savages

time to lock and load
here's my soul to bare
all i've done is hurt those who cared
i've done my time
got my mind right
looking in the mirror many a night
a proud man i'm not
i've made some real bad moves
none of which were very smooth
hard lessons changed
my broken tune
and left me alone in the room
and for this now
i'm a wiser man
even if alone is how i stand
it's not all good
but i can tell
in due time all will be well

some wounds have
trouble healing
while bringing back
all the feeing

if karma is real then i am doomed
i've broken hope acrosss the room
turned soft heart into stone
cut that trust to the bone
bridges burned lessons learned
tear the rearview down
repair you crown

it's not all good but i can tell
in due time ll will be well
some wounds have
trouble healing
while bringing back all the feeling
you can choose
to redefine
get your heart and mind back in line
so look within for your bestfriend
Track Name: Of Whip And Steed
of whip and steed

come with me
now is the time
put your dirty hand in mine
happiness is what you need
the beast provides the whip and steed
and the call for you to heed

gather 'round the pulpit made of ohms
once you're there you'll feel like home
from this night many beacome one
then we'll burn like the sun
until the morning comes

c'mon brother
the time to rise is now
c'mon sister
teach us for you've heard the sound
and sink your teeth into the hand that feeds
and sink your teeth into the hand that feeds

cast aside all other idols that you've known
get down on your knees and reap the seeds you've sown

time wil die
when you look it in the eye
scratch out all the shame
erase the space that stains
and clense all that remains

c'mon brother
the time to rise is now
c'mon sister
teach us for you've heard the sound
and sink your teeth into the hand that feeds
and sink your teeth into the hand that feeds
Track Name: Temples Made Of Bone
temples made of bone

i couldn't tell what's real
it held me down just like before
and showed me things i didnt know
and then i forgot my worth
i told myself it's cold
and my ever beating heart
should have known right from the start
the signs were crystal clear
they told a tale of fear
and that you'll be back again
looking vaugely like a friend

the tide has turned and run
and the ones who still believe
secrectly conceede
im remembering my worth
the hope that once was was gold
shined brightly like the stars
now broken burnt and scarred

so long
you didnt show me which way to go
there's a fire down below
the likes of which you'll never know
so long
swans sing for you
your time is all but nigh
i'll take you deep beneath my wing
on the backs of crows well fly
so long
you didnt show me which way to go
burning hot just like the sun
drizzled down on virgin skin
Track Name: The Longest Winter
the longest winter

sleepless and frozen
alone in my hole
so now i know
how strong i can be
my mind's a blade forged by the cold
the nights were truth
telling me the things
that i should do to make them all just go away

who is this person you have become
what is this blanket of dispair you've wrapped yourself in, son

i can hear them chewing
from within
if i lay still enough
and hold my breath and listen
a constant reminder
of what i've done
walk on out the door
and slap the smile on my face
so no one knows this life i live wthin these walls
and what shall it be
an empty glass
or do i set myself free

never have i stood at this crossroads before
but my mind is tired and my heart is growing sore
some see through the shroud i've put on
they sense im unbalanced and stuggling to be strong
so i promised this oath
to believe in who i am
to let loose of the ghost
the past is not who i am

focused on rising
and walking a path
that's loving and true
