Track Name: Disillusion
Leave for now
Take me away from here
Take me away from here

Bleed this out
Take us away from here
Take us away from here

Hearts locked inside until
The shade returns to light
Dissonance coincides
Love lost inside the fray

How can we see when our eyes have been shut for days?
How can we feel when our hearts have been closed for days?

As our darkest hour approaches now
We’re left to fight this rage
Disconnected from those cruel, cruel words
The scars, they still remain

Our flame will blow out
Our time will run out

Light the way from my sanity
Burn a hole in your heart for me
Not in disillusionment
We will find away

We will find
Our flame will blow out
Our time will run out
Our hearts will burn out
Now I know
Track Name: Nails
Remember
Remember the darkness that holds us all desperately
She lingers
She waits and reforms
She waits watching us

There's blood in your hands
Blood in your eyes

With nails in our hands
With nails in our eyes

My guiding star
Take me back where we began
Where do we go when there’s nothing left in here?
Show us another way to let the darkness inside go
So the end won’t seem as near, outside of fear
Help me see the truth in our hearts and in our minds
Give us strength to make the change that we desire

I’d be a fool to see faith in you
Or have faith us

Cos we live to destroy
Cos we live to devour it all

My guiding star bring us back to the beginning
Our guiding star bring us back to the beginning

Let us rebuild let us fix our home again
Track Name: Skirmish
Follow me now
We're standing amongst the clouds
The cool breeze takes us
It leads us to your shores

Follow me now
We're gliding on this plane
Our minds entangle
And darling don't be shy
Follow your head
And your feet will follow

Only you can believe that nothing stands in your way

How long will this go on?
Take me
Follow me now

Shut it off
Break it down
Turn it off
Just shake it off
Shut it off
Break it down
Turn it off
We're waiting for you
To stand up and make a change
We’re watching over you

They're taking over you again
They're guiding you down the wrong direction
Track Name: Sister
Bless the mother
Bless the child born into light
Bless the father
A kingdom for the courageous

She lay under
A mother’s wing for so long
A shadow
Shaded from the bright light

Are you ok?
Your eyes tell a different story
Are you ok now?
Tell me, are you ok?

Now I can see right through to your eyes
A void of disconnection
It overwhelms you

Now I want to try and make this right for you
To help you find some form of resolution

A mother taken so young
A daughter left to find where she belongs
The truth is often hard to bear
When others lose the sense to care

Every heart deserves a glance
Every soul deserves to dance
To bleed a life away

Heavy heart
You’ll always be loved
When all is forgotten, precious rose

Relinquish the pain
To light up your way
Her heart will always beat again

Light up your way
Track Name: Endless Change
The night comes as the daylight fades away
We beat our drums to the sound of endless change
Resolution comes at a price we never pay
We see your homes and we watch them fade away
They come

We take
We take your homes away
We beat our drums
Till the sound just slips away

Forever the victims in this life
Forever we beat our drums
Together we’ll tear this down
Till its right for you

Tear them down
Watch the walls come crashing down

We are
We are the leaders
We are the receivers
We are the ones for you

Don’t them slip away into sound of endless change
To the sound that we make when we beat our drum

Hey
Wake up
To the sound they’re making

Been right but this is wrong
A heart bleeds for so long

Let them go, let it go
Let them go, let us go
Track Name: The Pine Bluff Variant
Disavow these front row seats
Needless to say you better have not followed me
Just go to bed now and count those sheep
If you touch me now you better kill me

With your lies
Greed
Guilt
Through teeth
Do you believe me?

Self-centred
Indulgent
Ego
Shit
Do you believe me?

Just stand tall and face me
Your small words don’t faze me

I will you be waiting here till you fall on those words
Every step you take
Every move you make
We will follow
Now that the truth is out do you see that I played you for a fool?

Just be a man and face me
Get off your horse and we will see
Heavy heart and heavy mind
Don’t follow me into this rhyme

Do you believe?
Do you believe in me?
Track Name: Thalidomide
As I leave this world
As I pass this torch to you
Please forgive me
Please embrace what’s left behind

If I had the time to tell you you’ll be alright
I would
If I had the time to believe we’ll be alright
I would

Please forgive me
Please forgive me one more time
I’m left here to wonder
What it all would have been like

If I had the time to tell you you’ll be alright
I would
If I had the time to reflect on this you know
I would

How I wonder how this life would have played out
If it wasn’t for the stake in my side
Or choices filled with regret

If I had the time to tell you you’ll be alright
I would
If I had the time to believe you’ll be alright
I would

And if I had the time to reflect on this you know
I would
And if I had the time to forgive my bad decisions
I would

Like a bird with a broken wing I lay here
Left behind
Buried but still alive

So much anger
So much frustration
How can this be fair?
Still so much more life to live

I breathe this out
This note to you
A last goodbye

Breathe and ascend
Like a feather in the wind
Up she goes in the light of day
Up she goes forever
Track Name: Peoples Temple
We hang on every word that you preach to us
No more questioning, your views your reasons
We’re subservient pawns in your master plan
We look to you to guide us home

We wanted to live to shine
To give light to a world that’s dying
But you took us down a path so cold
Just a blind pursuit for fool’s gold

Darkness settles over
This Peoples Temple crumbles
Evil settles over
This fertile marshy land

You took away our freedom
You took away our children
The only reason we followed
Your views, your every word

Some see God inside your body
Some see Christ inside of you
A hope of glory
I see the fraud

Some see God inside your body
Some see Christ inside of you
A hope of glory
Take them away
All the words you say
Track Name: Shining Lights
A city aglow like fireflies
We lay here under burning lights with blood-stained eyes
Underneath a cold dark winter sky
We wait for you and your shining lights

Not afraid of anything, or what’s to come
You’re a mystery that’s rarely seen
A vision of peace, an endless daydream
You're a mystery, seen to believe

A vision of love, sweet butterfly
A delicate flame, that’s losing light
All facets of this little world receding
Please don’t give us anymore of this

Please
Leave us alone

Together we'll watch the daylight fall
Behind the shining lights
The world awakes to the sound of peace
Consumed by the blinding light

Together we'll watch the daylight break across
The morning horizon
Forever embracing who we are
To see the shining lights

Our world aglow with fiery skies
We lay here under burning skies with blood-stained eyes
Arms wrapped around the ones we love
We wait for you and your shining light

Afraid of all the choices that we've made
We're forever the ones to pass the blame
A vision of peace, an endless daydream
She’s a mystery seen to believe
