Track Name: Augury
I am shelved and segregated, struggling to control what I've created You think the war is out there? It starts in here between the panic and fear In the midst of life I am dead, lay me down by the riverbed I let the water heal my wounds, the mist falls and I am consumed Anxiety has me this pale, hanging on by my fingernails When sorrow knocked at my door, I was too afraid to answer anymore In the midst of life I am dead, lay me down by the riverbed I let the water heal my wounds, the mist falls and I am consumed Anxiety has me this pale, hanging on by my fingernails Bound and tied I could not stay, open corridors in empty space. Lead me to the river, I will follow Lead me to the river, I will fall
Track Name: Visitant
I've seen white walls waste away And I am sickened and awake for hours, for days Broken down, I am caustic inside, outside calcified This never stops I re-read every word you said Spat it out on script And bandaged what was left Oh Holy Island I carry the sick down to the shore Oh Holy Island I carry the sick, the son you betrayed has finally passed away Sunken eyes and bruised wrists, the journals of one so cold Those below, so unclean, I've come to collect you all An eye for an eye in good time, honest men left us blind For all I consumed, I'm buried here with you She lay there, naked and innocent wrapped in these bed sheets My father, forgive me, I never had a choice The beast died a thousand times in me I wait so patiently
Track Name: In The Shadow Of A Mountain
We are beggars of the murdered, where nothing matters anymore As I'm surrounded by friends with false faces All the reasons are here, but less is more, more or less So I'm sustained in fluids and bloods and I'm cupped to this poisoned breast In your shadow, you doctored every part of me In your shadow, partially patient I dislocate my arm free The truth in your frightened eyes Throws a shadow over all that aches inside Sheltered and weak, temporary peace We float in perfect failure Staring into the abyss, such a shame to find me staring back As I'm cast away, on that river of sadness With two hands and a bucket of pain I eat your gospel, it tastes like rumors to me In your shadow, you doctored every part of me In your shadow, partially patient I dislocate my arm free In your shadow, my worth was no cost In your shadow, I traded time with loss "I am forever" Forever is all I have
Track Name: The Lengths (When Wants Become Needs) Feat. Frank Carter
I have nourished my demons and this fire I am lost love, like water filling lungs Colours on her skin are bruising black and blue The shoreline grew foul and drowned in the dreams of the young She is so flawless, her mouth barely moves There are no words for these truths If only you knew, the lengths I go to make you mine, by drowning your horsesIn this dank town, and in my putrid house These bowels of failure, the worst part of being alone Wishing for my constant piece of home Something wicked this way comes of swill and pills and gutter rot I'm choking on grief, you're begging for sleep When men are monsters, they pray for times like these Tore your name from my veins I give you one word, forgiveness
Track Name: Warmth Of The World
All the warmth left in this world couldn't keep the gloom away What's the measure of a mans worth? I see darkness behind their eyes It's not right that I can do as I please
Track Name: Child Of Glass
It's quarter past life and I am soaked in vile ideas Grasping, squeezing, clutching, its grinding me down We bruise before we tear Like ether in the air With murderous intent the mourners flock together A fog of sickness, jesus so wide-eyed and innocent We bruise until we tear Like ether in the air What have you done? What have you ruined? Turn the lights down Consumed by veins, I caught the winds of failure Consumed by veins, holding a child of glass My arms outstretched, why are you trying to hurt me? By your bedside I remained for days and days and days and... I fold for you, you are forgiven My heart was put on the line We bruise until we tear Like ether in the air
Track Name: Grief Beggar
My love you've spoilt my needs I've been stepping on these egg shells, you've been stepping on my throat I left myself open to these wolves, organs exposed My tendons kept us sewn as one I hold her one last time before I leave this place With the knowledge that she is unaware of what's happened It's a pity to see you leave, but I'm keeping the best of me The fearful always talk, always talk You're a layer of sadness that won't go away You're a half hidden home of death and I won't come up alive Your passage was a lung Knowing it will never last Crossing out your name Just moments of joy God I hate the way I am around you With bitter words I plead, hold me We had our time together Missed you more than I could bear With a glad heart I had to let you go Closing off the past, dreaming as I go These things that unified us, caused us so much pain
Track Name: I Tried To Stitch The Sea To The Shore

Track Name: Onset
The passing of the seasons give us casualties Sitting in this ward on New Year's Eve I hoped and prayed he would pull through That winter was the coldest too Where the pavement ends, anguish governs the heart White eyes in the house of the sick I'm broken, remorseful and cruel I can't get past these bleak white lights I can't get past these countless nights Hold on I can't get past these bleak white lights Hold on I can't get past these countless nights Merciful Lord tear down this house I dream for peaceful respite hours Please keep him on this I.V drip His words in my head said stay with me, oh stay with me, pray sweet release I'm crushed under the weight of my regret White eyes in the house of the sick I'm broken, remorseful and cruel
Track Name: Dark Father
The years perform their terrible dance I was glad enough to have you The loneliest walk the longest miles You' ll never know the pain of wanting this I'm turning out like you wanted Burning in my wrists I'm turning out like you wanted Stitched at the lips I hold no hope for humanity, you will find none here So let the dreamer wake to see the psychosis Pieces of you are growing in here I suffocate in your love You crawl in closer with broken hips I'm lifted to the hollow behind your ribs I'm turning out like you wanted Burning in my wrists I'm turning out like you wanted Stitched at the lips Dark Father reigns I'll eat my eyes because my mind is crying Keep bitter pills for glad tidings I held you here for too long, who could ever take my place? Why should I care about a world that chooses to save face? You're taking the best of me I'll eat my eyes because my mind is crying Everything I've ever known is dying
