Track Name: Weary Eyes
Weary Eyes

Building character is a process of punishment and praise.
This is all about who is the hero, the victim,
where we end up on the other side.

Plagued by an enforced inferiority complex we obey.
Facing a future forged through hierarchy.
Know who's the backstabber.

Stepping out of your body, of your own skin.
There is no doubt with every step
you'll doubt - your choices.

Congratulations, your diligence has paid off,
You've forgotten where you came from.
Here, this is to integrity.
Rise of the Lion. The Prince he has been chosen,
the pawn he used dismantled.
Tangled web of lies & scandal.

Stepping out of your body, of your own skin.
There is no doubt with every step
you'll doubt - your choices.

We're all tired.
Weary eyes seeking release.
Incarceration, perpetual sentence
most of us bareley abide.
Track Name: The Fallout In Bliss
The Fallout In Bliss

This is where you fall down.
Your ideals are unsupported.
Nobody really thinks he's ever gonna leave town,
off to a better end or to start again.
Your bright future is more a dying ember.
Waiting for somebody else to light the match.

Where are you now and what have you become?
Your drive careered right off the road.
You burnt out all those years.
To say that there is nothing left,
To lay down and eat your words
is a futile exercise in an unforgiving world.

Oh I could be wrong.
Still I lend a hand to play the part
of a fatiguing friend,
but what do they know?

Can you see the signs,
That this is not how it was meant to be?
You mask your silence
but you've wore that mask for too long.
By now your cries for help are
influencing all my ignorance.

You can take back your place.
Know it might not feel the same.
While you were gone
there was no one to keep it warm.
Track Name: Before We Start To Walk
Before We Start to Walk

Peering forward, watching branches break.
Stormy season, when will it end?
I can only speculate
conclusions that are yet to play.

Though we're soaring now
will our wings begin to ache?
Doubtful ghosts that haunt your dreams.
Will their fateful words be heard?

Thrown under,
out of sight but not quite out of mind.
Blown over,
Losing focus, got to live in the moment.

Tangling out laces before we start to walk.

The more I dwell upon it, the more it's killing me.
These notions are pointless.
Arrest oblivion. Subdue the blackened sky.
Lets get back to the start.

Thrown under,
out of sight but not quite out of mind.
Blown over,
Losing focus, got to live in the moment.
Track Name: Echoes of a Eulogy (Acoustic)
Echoes Of A Eulogy

Be all that you are
and I'll be you're maker.
To another we'll play it safe,
now isn't that a firm basis
we can relate to?

I wanna stay and feel my way
through a void that's only empty
because of the life
that was pushed too far

Breaking through brick walls
was never so easy.

Don't leave me out.
Don't watch me drown.
We can escape this
That's gotta be what matters.
Echoes of a eulogy before your time has come.

Bring in the new year
and dust off all you're ambitions.
Breaking promises to yourself,
now isn't that a firm basis
we can relate to?

I wanna stay and feel my way
through a void that's only empty
because of the life
that was pushed too far.

Echoes of a eulogy
before you're time has come.
