Track Name: Incentive
Cast aside any thoughts of safety
This moment has already passed

We all have failed at least once
but we should not stand still

Did you come to your senses?
Take my outstretched hand
And follow me west
Because we are moving on
Track Name: Resolution
Thousands of lives
passing before my throne
Marching to the sound of my voice
Thousands of lives
Muted by my fury
Who will survive?

Their fates in the palm of my hand
I'll make a fist
I'll strike them down
None will survive

Admit your defeat
and show us your heart,
The heart of a coward

And the insight surfaced,
The truth revealed
You realize,
You can't stand your own ground

Among the raging chaos
Only one soul succeeds
Among his dying comrades
Only one man still stands

Only he stands

The lifelong strife, his only teacher
The bitterness of solitude,
his greatest strength

This nightmare is his life

Thousands of lives
passing before my throne
Marching to the sound of my voice


Can you see it in his eyes?
He has the strength to carry on
Track Name: Faceless
More and more
I am growing to hate
these decisive moments
I remember how you used to be
But look at you now, (look at you now)
An empty husk with no sense of identity

A choice has to be made
Will I turn away or
reach out..?

Remember those who lost it all
Or will you let them fade away
forever!?
But now..You've become..You've become faceless!

These vacant eyes tell the bitter story of change
Fear what you have become

I thought your image was burned in my eye
Seems like time disintegrates all

I believed that I would never forget you
Memories never persist

Fear what you have become

I hate these decisive moments
But my choice is made
The faintest of memories reignites

My choice is made
I will set you free
Follow me in to the..
the horizon

Remember those who lost it all
Or will you let them fade away
forever
Track Name: Resurgence
Here I stand
Severed from the strings
on which you used to play
You brought out the worst in me
I rose from the depths
As a tower above you
No other way out
I can't hold back anymore
Abandon all hope

My eyes radiate with the fury of the sun
You grew a plague in my heart

No escape, no shelter
I am the fear
No safety, no rest
I am the retribution
There is no hope for you

No more chances
I won't rest until
I hold you lifeless
in my arms

I am the architect to your ruin
the witness of your fall
I am your creation
Nothing more but what you've made of me

This cannot be undone
This cannot be undone
this will not be undone

No escape, no shelter
I am the fear
No safety, no rest
I am the retribution
There is no hope for you

face the threatening sky
I bring nothing but your end
face the threatening sky
I am nothing but your end
Track Name: Perpetual
I broke through
Wave after wave
The tide won't take me in tonight
Here amongst grief stricken ghosts
The perpetual motion of the ocean
Soothing the bitter taste of decisions made

Look at what we have become
A sad parade with nothing
Left to lose or gain anymore

Never forget
I am the one
Who had the choice to make
Who carries the weight

My song has long been sung
but you can make yours count
Don't make the same mistakes
Don't make my mistakes

Whatever wave may come
I will not be washed away
On the shore I reside
An unceasing monument of sin

These words repeating endlessly

I realize
That you will never understand
But all i did,
All the sacrifice
Was for you


Our choices became
The oceans between us
Drifting further away
