Track Name: Looking Forward
I'm Looking forward
Only to see
How we've been blinded
For prevalence and questioning
God Damnit

I cannot comprehend
This understandance
For negligence
Fuck it
We'll create our own logic
Now

We'll tear down these walls
False governance, false prophets
And we'll create a new sky
To catch the grace that's fallen
To destroy the thoughts of avarice
And to those still living in callus
We're so close to breaking away
Before being broken in

Turning the page
Trying to find
Unwritten answers
In books plagarised by liars

Burn
Burn it down
Purge
Purge the crown
I'll burn
I'll burn it all
I'll Purge
I'll purge them all

This
Can't
Be the end of us
I
Won't
Be the one helpless
You're the one who let me down
I'll take it back

And I'll build anew only to lead to
False conscience, True hindrance
I'll need a generation behind me
To undo the their mistakes
And their blooms who ignored
We're so close to breaking away
We have no choice

We'll take it back
We'll take it back
We'll take it back
We'll take it back

And even though you left me bruised and broken
With a generation beside me
I'll leave you a world of solace
Track Name: Smoking Gun
We live in a time
Where your class gives you
A license
To kill a man

You think you can get away
With anything you sicken me
Protect and serve has never been
So dead to me

False superiority
Infecting your integrity
Invading your privacy
Your foolishness, my enemy

A bullet hole for every soul
That crossed your path and stood their ground
For those of you who held their tongue
Who stood and watched without a sound

Your time will come
You hateful fucks

Blood fills the streets
Down on your knees

You are not above the laws you enforce
Justice is not served
The world is not your court
You are not the law

You think you can get away
With anything you sicken me
Protect and serve has never been
So dead to me

This violence
Your hypocrisy
The decline of democracy
You make sinners look like saints

A bullet hole for every soul
That crossed your path and stood their ground
For those of you who held their tongue
Who stood and watched without a sound

Your time is up
You hateful fucks

Blood fills the streets
Down on your knees

You are not the fucking law
Track Name: Relapse
Lend me your attention, and I'll tell you how this ends
Worn out cliches and a played out trend
A love song composed and conducted by a liar
Who's disguised in ecclesiastical attire

Place on the backburner
I was there when he came
You love me, you left me
I'll be there when he leaves

I warned you not to come back
For solitary comfort
Words are arbitrary, imaginary,
Lover now forever slumber

Don't treat me like a relapse

It's just a song my own relapse to a dependency
So I'll apologize ahead of time for
Stanzas I don't mean, It's such a travesty
You call yourself my friend yet where have you been?

Where were you? Where are you?
Stand up and be there
Where were you? Where are you?

So when you're on your knees I hope you're thinking of me
And again when eating the fruit of the poisoned tree
Take the consequences in, as your regret bleeds
From who he'll never amount to be

I'll make you say you missed your chance

And you said you'd keep your legs shut
But do us all a favor
Make it your mouth

I'm trying To turn this pain
Into a passion
As you're lying
Turning a passion into a play

When your short story reaches it's tragic end
I'll be reliving it time and time again

So let us apologize ahead of time
For stanzas we don't mean

But it's such a fucking travesty
It's just a song
We're just a sad song
Track Name: The Pedestal (feat. Jacob Wallace)
Reveal your courage
In such a cowardly place
This strength is unparalleled
But I am held by your grace
There is no reason to be afraid

I will open the door
And take a part of this treasure
To hold a place in history
For heroes to be remembered

They say that time heals everything
But I have watched it tear this place apart

I will not be held back for much longer
In seven years I will find you

Hatred is all that He’s left in this place
A temple once so sacred
He chose to desecrate

Your voice beckons me to see
What has been blinding me

You will not be alone; I am stronger
I never got to say goodbye
As you left through that gate
We were told that we were too young
But that our stories were bound by fate

What makes my life worth living
Is something worth fighting for
As fate would have it
A hero is born

I will not be deterred by this presence
A king of thieves
He holds no throne
In a world of legends

I stand triumphant
Upon this pedestal
For now I have
Just what it takes
To seal away this evil
