Track Name: Anchor
From the day I became a man
I’ve had these anchors hanging from my neck
Dragging me down
Waiting to catch hold of something strong

All the decisions I have made
I am chained to this world I tried to leave
The weight of consciousness
Tie me down, Hold me back

From the day I became a man
I’ve had these anchors hanging from my neck
Dragging me down
Waiting to catch hold of something strong

Tie me down, hold me back
Tie me down
Tie me down, hold me back
Tie me down

Even on the highest mountains
I reach forth to the sky
These shackles bind me, (relentless)
The stars seem ever so close, yet always so far away
I will wait for the day, I am set free

I will wait for the day I am set free
I will tear down the sky
I will tear; I will tear down the sky
I will tear
I will rip it down
Tear it down, tear down the sky
Disassemble piece by piece
Erase and Improve

From the day I became a man
I’ve had these anchors hanging from my ankles
Dragging me down
Waiting to catch hold of something strong

All the decisions I have made
I am chained to this world I tried to leave
The weight of consciousness
Tie me down, Hold me back

My reflection stares back at me
in the clearest of night skies
Waiting... Always Waiting
For a chance to break free
Track Name: Wretched
Wretched - I sit here pondering
Of life after death or voids forever more
From the moment f my awakening
To the time of my slumber
Every day is torture waiting for the end

Do I have a soul
That exists beyond my shell
After dying, and having been
Long forgotten with time
What am I -In this endless cycle
Of creation and destruction in this plane
Insignificant, and neverlasting
I'm but dust in the wind in a Universe of Storms

Death will, reign supreme
on this world, relentlessly
Spreading it’s wings in defiance
of all creation, has tried to stay
Treacherous Rebirth; A reformed consciousness
Do I have a soul?
Where do men go when they die?
Do I have a soul that exists beyond my shell
After dying, and having been -
Long forgotten with time
Wretched -I sit here pondering
Of life after death, or voids forever more
Everyday is torture, Waiting for the End
Track Name: Mahabodhi
I and the Universe, one and the same
Breathing life into all creation
Defining my own existence
I see the path before me
The choices made have led me here
The winding roots of possibility
I won’t look back, I won’t look back
Naïve Realism, Reflections of the Human Brain
“What could have been” – a burden I refuse to bear
I see the path before me
The choices made have led me here
The winding roots of possibility
I won’t look back, I won’t look back
This is the mountain
On which I will build my temple
To stand tall in both light and darkness
A new perception of self-reflection
I am the eyes, of the universe
Use my brain, to understand yourself
These walls will stand the test of time
Giving me a purpose to venture on
Cast aside the expectations
Of those who’d tell you how to live
Track Name: Compass
I’ve been staring at this compass
For as long as I can remember
But I still don’t know where I’m going
The person staring back doesn’t remember my name
But I refuse, to feel lost
Because the world gave up on me
I could hardly recognize,
The photos etched into my mind
So I took them all down
Now I don’t know who I am
I’ve begun to wonder if this compass is broken
Because it keeps leading my heart right out of my chest
I have built myself back up
Over and over again
This time will be different
I won’t stop to look in the mirror
Steer Your Own Path, Guide this ship ahead
The person staring back at me
Doesn’t remember my name
But I refuse to feel lost
because the world gave up on me
I could hardly recognize,
The photos etched into my mind
So I tore them all down
Now I don’t know who I am
This time will be different
I won’t stop to look in the mirror
Track Name: Halls of Extinction
Behold the halls of extinction
Monument, to the, broken,
Branches of the tree of life
Bow before the halls of extinction
Monument to the broken,
Branches of the tree of life
Countless will perish, Infinite Cataclysms
Mass extinction, Devastation, {of} Life on Earth
Biological Matrix, Planet of the Trees
decomposing organic matter
Buried before they can decay
Apocalyptic origins of an impossible scale
Relentless Floods of Molten Ichor
Lay waste to the surface of this world
Look up to the stars and seek out the answers
Beg false idols for the knowledge
Responses given through a portent of doom
The forces that built mountains
Will turn and entomb them
Buried here for millions of year
Apparitions of great magnificence
All that remains is to look up in hopeless wonder
Prisoners of earth, nowhere to turn
Beyond our guilt and our fears
Track Name: No Destination
A cataclysm of colors before you
Violent in their very nature
What do you think it was like?
The serenity of light and darkness
While the warm rays of sunlight cut through
I lay on my back and float along
The endless ocean currents carry me
No destination in mind, I’ve got nowhere to be
Bid on my misery
The end of an era, or so it seems
I promised the world to be a man of decency
I follow the path I’ve chosen
Bid on my misery
I lay on my back and float along
The endless ocean currents carry me
A tireless affair of smashing against the same rocks
Day after day
The same sky above and sand below
The weak and the weary
My skin burns, My eyes bleed
I will find my way home
