This song is dedicated to Eric Gentry of A Feast for Kings.


It's a flatline
On the faultline
But does the fault lie
Within everyone

When you left us
Did you find Grace
It sure hasn't found me
Here now alone

And now that I know
That you're at peace
At rest
Now there's nothing left
And I'm restless

So I'm saying goodbye
For one last time
It's a chapter that was never finished
An epilogue
Never started

I'm finding anger instead
I'm loathing all the hatred
I'm going back to the start
I'm going back to the start

Why is this not what they said it would be
Why's this not a happy ending

So I've said my goodbye
For the final time
The book is closed
Empty pages burned
It's the ending

Not Yet

I'll seek out my vengence
On He who had neglected
I'll cast every sail
Just to drown every man
For I am rejected
For I am abandoned
For I am corrupted
For I am all our hatred

No more
No more

And as the sun sets
I look forward to seeing it rise
Even without you
By our side
There's no need for goodbyes
We'll create a world for you to come back to
Where we can all
React without regret
