"The great thing is not to be afraid. Now, between you & me, I don't want to hang-that's practical; but for all can't, Macfarlane, I was born with a contempt. Hell, God, devil, right, wrong, sin, crime, and all the old gallery of curiosities-they may frighten boys, but men of the world, like you & me, despise them" (The Body Snatchers. Robert Louis Stevenson)

Even when your world razes
I'll be here for you my love
When the shadows of the gallows try to swallow
I will swoon you away

Every day a struggle
So what is the point of being upset about it?
Draw all the good from the bad
No longer we are sadists

We give up
We give up so easily
But I refuse

You test my faith
I won't waiver
You test my patience
I will wait for you

Blackened knuckles from pulling you out of the fire
Don't create discord when you need none

Peace
All at peace
Why can't we all be at peace?

They say "I don't see what you see in her"
I say "I see the world in her beautiful little eyes"

She has been crushed
By the weight of the world
I am redeemer

Respect her wishes
But hope for gold
The sun brings new days
New chances at recreation

Unbreakable
We will become
Towers of iron
These hearts
Will cry no more

Reassess
The situation
The consequence
Snake bite
Track Name: Grains Of Sand In The Hourglass
What a failure
What a vicious man I am
I’m the giant that’s been wrong every moment since the start

Day one
I became the cancer
Metastasized in your brain
And the sickness ailing your spine
I was the man that was misaligned
Now that we've gone our separate ways
I'm wishing things were the same
When you decide to cut your losses I hope I'm not left behind

Is there something wrong with me?
Please tell me
I can’t shut my eyes without imagining holding your hand
There are few moments I go without you on my mind
Her image scarred my eyelids
Sleep has burnt my eyes

What will I become?
You are what I’m hoping for

I am plagued, as a guilt filled man

With his hands pressing down on his heart
Keeping himself from true happiness
Why did I ever think I deserved perfect?
I wasn’t made for this
To be your perfect little boy
Why would i really
Ever think i meant something to you?

Is this what dreams are made of?
Vicious animals maws wide
Looking to draw blood
Is this what you came for?
Is this what dreams are made for?
I’m just another man
Broken where he stands

If I could turn back time
I would of never chased you
Digging my own grave
To be noticed by you
What will I become?

Is there something wrong with me?
Please tell me
I can’t shut my eyes without imagining holding your hand
There are few moments I go without you on my mind
Her image scarred my eyelids
Sleep has burnt my eyes

Pushing myself has never been easy
To change everything about who I am
I have always depended on your every breath
As a dog depends on his spine

I will continue vaguely into an unknown pasture
Hoping to make the most of myself
Track Name: Looking Out From My Own Casket (Feat. Scott Bortnick)
Struggling with forgiveness
Raise the torchiere globe to the light
These hardships will never fail
If I don't let it go

No one cares of right and wrong any longer
All there is, selfishness & corruption
One day when the time is right i will be able to let go of what you've done

No one gives a fuck if you're sad at this world
No one gives a fuck if you die alone

This needs to change!
This ever-beating heart in my chest was put here as blackness
I want to ever perspire and shed tears
& break it over and over again
Just to make your life better
Take my hands
I will make you feel real
But in order for everything to be alright
You must forget all you know

Start anew
Forgiving all you've hurt
Because if you let that get you down
You will be stuck in a grave with all the dead
Fearing & hateful people of this dark world

Let's make a difference
Track Name: Architects Drafting Mountain Sketches (Feat. Jayson Vochal)
You built me up
So I could tear down and rebuild you
Everything grows towards the sun
Now you do too

Barren chest and broken hearted
You are still standing without fear

For we
Know our path
To righteousness

Miles of expanses covered in one pencil stroke
Cartography of mountains
Building up a stronghold

The architects hands are tied
Breathing down his neck

We don't realize the power
We can create
With just a few words

Welcome home
I never thought I'd miss that exasperated voice
Until I opened my eyes to see your words seep into my skin

Tragedies will unite us, words can build never-ending mounts, you can try and destroy us, but we won't waiver.
We have prophesied war, destruction, the end, but when this world is cold & ashen, I know I will still stand.

I'll try my best to make people happy, but you know perfection will never happen

What a waste of face

The serpent tries to tear us down, but we will devour.

Stop us
You can't stop us
Track Name: Takeshi The Ender
Husbands respect your wives, and wives respect your husbands equally.
For narrow is the path to true emotion.
We are here because of one thing

Love
Wash over me
for I conquer the bad with the good in me

Sometimes you must lose yourself to find out who you truly are

Now look
In the mirror
And tell me who you think I am

I'm just your inner conscious
Biting at the back of your neck.
Try and drown me out, but I am truth
I hope you make the right decisions, that's why I'm here to facilitate
To catch you when you fall.

Agape
Stand tall and proud

That mirror shines back and shows all your scars
What have you done, what have you done
These scars have healed for it's hit the sun
What have we done, what have we done

You keep thinking this is right
Putting yourself in situations that just make you cry

And I wonder why
You keep crawling from that swamp you call home
I hope, I hope
You realize that you are torturing yourself
I was put on this earth
To keep you from scarring

I am
My iron heart
Track Name: Absalom (Feat. Jordan Bahno)
Empires of 3rd world countries
Crumble from the Achilles hero
The sun sets upon ashes

Civilians mourning the loss of their children
Merchants holding their ashes
Men in robes robbing and raping
Is this what we’ve come unto?

Starry nights over sorrowed lands
The tipping of the domino
What do you think happens
When the tower falls?

Sun
Set
On Ashes

Hope
Is the anchor
Of the soul

Raze the city
Raze it to the ground

O hope where have you disappeared to?
In our time of need you have stepped out the door
Why, o why o has this happened?
The boys and girls of this broken continents are crying
They have no sight, they have no sight

The pyramid looks down to these crumbled cities
Commanding the children to build
But they have all gone past the point now of hope

You don’t realize the torture you put yourself just to die
Another century will pass before you realize that there is a reason to every season
Just to think, this moment in your head will be a memory by tomorrow

Exterminate
Our own kind
One by one we all fall to ash

The shroud has fallen
Now it's time to see
Innocence dismantled to pieces
The shadows around me like my brother's keeper
His shadow's my reaper
The time has come to reap me
But i still have too much to live for
I will see you in the end

I
Resistor of temptation
Destroyer of worlds

I hope you know that there is no tomorrow, for me
I am the destroyer, of me
Track Name: Karoshi
Time heals all wounds,
Living in fear,
I won't let that
Happen

Overshadowed, by darkness,
He swallows her into his fantasy

I am sick of watching her dismantle
This wall has been erected too high

I try my best to scale it
This wall may be too high to scale
But I will still commit

Beyond what i want is my need

I try my best to scale it
This wall may be too high to scale
But i will still commit

To get you what you need
True emotion
Break this shattered shell
Do not fret
For I am not a destroyer
I rebuild

I laugh at myself
Dream-chaser
You can't get anywhere without a backbone

You are just like me

Work, creator, build
Adorn yourself decorated soldier
Endings, we are buried the same

Am I a waste of flesh?

Waste of flesh
Am I empty?
Waste of flesh
Am I a waste?

You are just like me
Standing with an open heart bleeding

Infected from the foul world

If this is how you want me
I'd rather die
Than spend another moment
With
You
Track Name: Benigno
Cover ups
Area 51

The assaulting bomb threat on the George Washington
She seeps into my mind with her lies

Delicate & delectable untruths
That it seems only the devil can create
I strongly fear to consume
Strong & murderous
I remember when our hands touched

User
Abuser

I’m dead inside
I can’t even look at your face without breaking
You left me like a cattle left to slaughter

User
Abuser
You fucking broke my heart
You Liar
Blatant liar
How can I forgive you?
For what you did to me

Heartless
Fucking heartless
You fucking broke my heart
You Liar
Blatant liar
Heartless
Fucking heartless
Track Name: Bridgeburner
Hell has reserved a certain place for the likes of you
There is a point where the line has to be drawn
God does not hold a place for you.

You lied bitch
Now you will pay
Hang before the jury
Hang before me bleeding

You lied to me bitch
Just because I'm different than them
I have no respect
I'll watch you rot in the cell

Gratification for your justified actions

I have hope
For you to decay

You sick fuck
Track Name: The Strength
There is a gulf open between us
Can’t we bridge it somehow
We have had so much taken from us
I feel me falling back
I can’t let myself get hurt again
I can’t drown in myself
But I no longer know what to do

This open air has come to an ultimatum with itself
Go back to the same problems
That apprehensive prognosticate life
My home for twenty years

The same old pinwheel spinning with a dull backdrop of grey

These sinners, are making me see
I no longer need envy

New aegis advises a means to ends
Gentrified life is a necessity
I have waited too long for this
I can’t wait anymore

I can’t wait anymore

I hope you feel like shit
The day after you broke my heart
Roses were at your doorstep
You are the parasite within me

You are the
Cancer eating me alive

I wished I could forget every moment we ever had
But now I’ve realized that this wasted time
Can turn around and better me
For the struggles I’ve overseen (the struggles I’ve overseen)

Has brought me towards empty

20 long hard years searching
20 years more and I won’t give a fuck

You are the cancer eating me
Track Name: Omerta Omari
Your heart's so cold
I never thought it would come down to this
Me on my knees begging you to stay
Although I know it would never happen

My secrecies were yours to keep
You stomped on my spirit
I was overzealous

After saying those 3 words it was never the same
Our hello's were goodbye's
And you became a vault
And you became a vault

Highest power lead me back to this
Let me exalt my yen
For my ardor is overbearing
And she is dissonance

That caress I miss
Pressed against my skin
One flesh again

My secret's will not spill until it is right
No longer in want
I search for something more

What do I want?
I Want You
What do I need?
I Need You
Track Name: Jujitsu
Floating on the last words i hear
Lighten the skies

Small in stature
Strong in nature

We're still here
Tall as mountains
But small as the pebbles that create
You are the support of the strength
Without your support
What would be left?

A hollow shell
No Meaning
This mountain would just be earth and stone
No meaning

Until you came along
And gave me a reason

Otherwise
I'd tear this world down
And rebuild it in my image

Supine jujitsu
Lying with hands outstretched
Waiting for your embrace

Delicacy embrace me
To feel whole again

Absence of ghosts, absence of clones, absence of love
Track Name: Cherish Every Moment
I treat every moment like it’s the last with you.
No matter how much I give; it will never be enough
To prove how much you mean to me
I would give the world just to be part of your name
Track Name: Architects Drafting Mountain Sketches (Acoustic) (Feat. Aisha Polite & Jayson Vochal)
You built me up
So I could tear down and rebuild you
Everything grows towards the sun
Now you do too

Barren chest and broken hearted
You are still standing without fear

For we
Know our path
To righteousness

Miles of expanses covered in one pencil stroke
Cartography of mountains
Building up a stronghold

The architects hands are tied
Breathing down his neck

We don't realize the power
We can create
With just a few words

Welcome home
I never thought I'd miss that exasperated voice
Until I opened my eyes to see your words seep into my skin

Tragedies will unite us, words can build never-ending mounts, you can try and destroy us, but we won't waiver.
We have prophesied war, destruction, the end, but when this world is cold & ashen, I know I will still stand.

I'll try my best to make people happy, but you know perfection will never happen

What a waste of face

The serpent tries to tear us down, but we will devour.

Stop us
You can't stop us
