Track Name: Dumbstruck
Passed away
What can I say?
I don't want
To feel this way

Beyond belief
Beneath the leaves
I don't want
To eat from these

Seems so cheap
I can't speak
I don't want
To feel this weak

Nothing left for me to say
Don't know what to do today
Nothing left for me to say
Don't know how to live anyway
Track Name: Moonlight
Kiss the wind and gaze, feels far away
Can it exist past what we say?
The shimmer swims, gilded by the moon
A teeming mass below, but we don't know

What if it fades?

Rises and falls, light after light
Waxes and wanes, night after night
Like our decline, breath after breath
Change upon change, between birth and death

What if it fades?
Track Name: Eyeless
War against
Our own kind
The world goes mad
And we go blind

Told to die
For a thought
Kill for idols
Worship blood

War against
Our own kind
The world goes mad
And we go blind

In the name
Of progress
Our home is robbed
And laid to waste

We all burn
Against ourselves
We all burn
Down our home
Track Name: The Greater War
Paralyzed, shot with a diamond
Clarity tears me apart
Tension throughout
Truth stops me in my tracks

Appetites unconquered
Needs unmet
Eyes open
Fists clenched

The Greater War
Track Name: Death to Illusion
I'm trying to hard to be a saint
I've got no good ideas and I'm feeling faint
Sick of all the good and the bad
Wasted every chance that I've had

Break me open
Death to illusion

Bring the sword down on my head
Cut away all I've said
Free me from self and past
Bring me home at last

Break me open
Death to illusion

We are chaos
We are order
Power is love
Self is death
