Sirens 07:49
Lyrics: Doug Murray The sirens will sing to you A land of promises Promises all hollow Deceptive and untrue The sirens will sing to you A land of temptation Guiding to your ruin But known to only few The sirens will sing to you Leading you astray Cannot look away Their voices will leave you Hypnotized and spellbound, confused Cannot run away Their song will leave you Mesmerized and held down Sweet melodies deceive you The sirens will sing to you A promise of salvation Submit yourself completely And it will come for you The sirens will sing to you A promise of damnation If you should turn away If you should refuse The sirens will sing to you Leading you astray Cannot look away Their voices will leave you Hypnotized and spellbound, confused Cannot run away Their song will leave you Mesmerized and held down Sweet melodies deceive you Cannot look away Their voices will leave you Hypnotized and spellbound, confused Cannot run away Their song will leave you Mesmerized and held down, and used Sweet melodies deceive you

Fragile shell around Volatility Noble men still fail to see The opportunity Create the enemy Wage a war upon the villain that you made Create the enemy Take the throne and leave a ruin in your wake Spread the doubt and let the roots grow deep inside Let the blame sprout into fear Vines that choke the weaker hearts of weaker men No resistance to your power Create the enemy Wage a war upon the villain that you made Create the enemy Take the throne and leave a ruin in your wake Divide and conquer Divide and conquer Divide and conquer Divide and conquer Divide and conquer Divide and conquer Fear shall be the ally Let you deep inside Whispers of a villain Deep within their minds Greed shall be the ally Blinded by your pride Poisoned institutions Propagating lies Tremble at the sight of Men you demonized Create the enemy Wage a war upon the villain that you made Create the enemy Take the throne and leave a ruin in your wake Create the enemy Wage a war upon the villain that you made Create the enemy Take the throne and leave a ruin in your wake

Vacant 03:51
Hidden in plain sight The gift you give to me Kept deep inside Where no one else can see But we both know The secret that we hide In vacant blue eyes It’s easy to find When I close my eyes I dream To find a touch of peace For a moment at least Watch the world outside Through vacant blue eyes Now I pray I’ll be Be set free from this place Do you feel good about all the Choices that you’ve made And every last emotion You have stolen from me Do you even think about Every promise that you break And every single moment I pray I can escape I pray That help is on the way One day One day I will escape

Amber 05:55
When the lights go out The scattered voices fade Unified return And gaze The amber slowly rises Flooding over me The golden light of idols On me When the amber fades A brighter house returns The voices further scatter Disappear But I’ve been bathed in amber My gilded tongue remains My mountain of delusion Now hear I'll bathe in the light And I'll captivate My presence is known By warm amber waves Go into the night And pontificate With wisdom bestowed By warm Amber When I see the sun Persona stays awake Giving all the people What they want I'll bathe in the light And I'll captivate My presence is known By warm amber waves Go into the night And pontificate With wisdom bestowed By warm Amber In the fluorescence And blue band of day Seems no one here noticed That I’m something greater In the dim light of evening My sweet daughter cries I’m gone as I’m singing This sweet lullaby What have I become? What good have I done? All this bastard amber It never meant a thing To anyone I'll bathe in the light And I'll captivate My presence is known By warm amber waves Go into the night Return to my place With wisdom bestowed By warm amber

Layers of oil in jars Dried shut Canvas on a roll Behind dusty old guitars Never to be stretched Toiling alone I mastered my craft Made beauty from chaos With steady young hands The muses all came But none of them stayed Vague memories of faces And precious few names A master above A new generation Of muses and men I made my final mark On my final statement The grand culmination of mine Everything I am In one composition The grand culmination Of synapses fired Refractions of wavelengths through a haze Of vapor in the air into my eyes The shadows of mountains The cool air of valleys in my lungs From drifting plates of land, how they collide These canyons eroded Carved out by the violent river flows Drawn by gravity to oceansides Where blood orange sunsets How they hit the iris in her eyes Never to be mine after that night Now my final statement Can never compare to happenstance I've learned the meaning of futility My thirty years gone I'll return to the earth A masterpiece may grow My synapses fired I am synapses fired

I am no one’s capital Not a thought to spare for me A checker wishing just to be A pawn I am no one’s counterpoint Condescended by them all While others get their lip service I’m nothing When we reclaim Light shall return Pat Boone, Debbie Boone I am no one’s favorite son All the others in my place They take and never give a thing for me I am no one’s anything And the arbiters of truth They bury what I’ve always known Is real Lying in wait The sum of your fears Giving you your turn Take in your hands The rules that they gave you Want to watch them burn? alternative perception when I tell you what to see alternative deduction when I take everything I need alternative conditions the chaos that i breed alternative rendition guaranteed alternative permission when you can't say no alternative prediction when i bet on what i know alternative completion when all is said and done you'll know the game is over when I've won Lying in wait The sum of your fears Giving you your turn Take in your hands The rules that they gave you Want to watch them burn? I know that a patient man must learn to lose before he learns to win Ego bruises are a side effect of finally playing the game Rubbing dirt onto my knees while biding time for glorious new days I can see the victory it's just around the corner I have faith Just like other pawns before Now they've got it made (Hold up the weight) Want to watch them burn Want to watch them burn Want to watch them burn Do you want to watch them burn Let's watch them burn Speak to me my eyes grow wider Speak to me and I’ll follow Speak of me as a reminder Speak of me and we are one Discard me for I will follow Discard me for I'll forgive Speak to me Speak of me Discard me Lying in state all that you hold dear Traveled too far to turn Do you remember The soul that you traded Want to watch it burn? Watch it burn

Blue skies turning grey Signaling time for a change Propaganda blinds the masses The old guard must break Insecurity as your defense Lies are your only voice Silence the population With false illusions of choice The higher you climb The further you fall Violently against the waves we’re crashing A king with no crown No heart and no soul Defiantly against the waves we’re crashing Dark to light Nowhere left to hide We reclaim Like the rising tide The higher you climb The further you fall Violently against the waves we’re crashing A king with no crown No heart and no soul Defiantly against the waves we’re crashing The longer you lie The harder you’ll fall Patiently against the waves we’re crashing A matter of time Your weakness will show Defiantly against the waves we’re crashing

Trapped inside A mind that’s been broken Unable to cope Or deviate From paths you made That end up at the start One drop in the glass to start to spin One drop in the glass to slip again You’re a fool You made a thin veneer It shattered long ago But still you hide behind a wall that never was The exception to the Golden rule Lost and lonely Your road to ruin is paved by your own hands Calling out to only push away Lying face down in the bed you’ve made Sliding further down the spiral day by day The more you fight the more you fall deeper instead Claiming that it will be different than last time But in the end you stumble and the cycle starts again Burning bridges like a candle at both ends Falling down the rabbit hole again Sliding further down the spiral day by day The more you fight the more you fall deeper instead Claiming that it will be different than last time But in the end you stumble and the cycle starts again

Whirlwind 05:17
Time Made a new dear friend today One more who I love Adding to the frequency and the magnitude of the letdowns to be had at my hands I know I’ll see you again I swear, you know I always do For now I can hope When our paths cross again That crossing will matter to you You’re feeling the tides rolling in But they won’t recede The island I built To hold you alone Your hilltops now the islands for all I hold dear Know you’re not alone The floods from my whirlwind They scatter the people I love Leave them running for higher ground I’m not so naïve I know with a shrug our lives Can diverge and you’ll carry on But this precious ground I pray I can always return To what's left and rest my soul For only a day For only a moment Help me calm the storm If just for a day If just for a day
