Track Name: Drowning
The light, awake, aware, recall, all that's lost
memories, regrets, failures and loss

Despair your life
Drink your last breath
Drain from your world
Numb

The dreams relive the nightmare
Every moment aware is torment
Try to escape but can't move on
Drown myself, drown out the pain

My life living loss
My crutch by the glass
Emotion fades away
Hide in the haze

In shadows histories replayed
No light in the darkness
Everythingbrings back the past
Close my eyes from what I've seen
Wash away my memories
Dull my mind, destroy my cares
Track Name: Another Black Day
You're almost lost
So keep running
Or the past will consume
This moment fleeting

If you pause
For a moment's respite
You will drown
In the bleak days

Awake, staring at the emptiness
Or close to friends and succour
You're always alone
With the suffering
You're always alone
with the suffering

The view from here is peaceful
The world stretches out far away
You can see all that lies
Between the Earth and the sky
Clarity is fleeting before dark days
Clarity is fleeting

My heart is betrayed by the twisted sight
Of my darkest days and blackest nights
These eyes define the vision
Of ghosts gathered in memory
Of the one who remain
In a hostile world of perdition
Track Name: And Still I Hate
Behind my eyes the night descends again
Everything seems misty now, since I saw the end
Lost and numb I wander, the living feel like shades
The ghosts inside me, more real every day

My crime marks my hands
My actions gilded with rage
No life without you living
My workld has turned to ash
I am nothing, and still I hate

Forever you drove me to
Where I could not go back
Dependant upon you I became
To define myself

Resentment and frustration
Defined my world of you
Confined by my obsession
My hate came burning through

My love became my loss
Damned by my self-righteous gaze
Forlorn, I remember joys of you
It's the little things that incite my hate anew

You were my life, my soul
With you, my life complete
Changed, I resented my weakness
Weakness exposed by you
Resentment turned to rage
Rage, I took to you
Shattered, I live fragments
Broken and hollow without you

My crime marks my hands
My actions gilded with rage
No life without you living
My world has turned to ash
I am nothing, and still I hate
Track Name: Nothing
Is this my rightful place?
I can't break free
I can't break free, I'm drowning
Drowning in your wake
Caged in this hell of silence
A silent reverence
Reverence binding me, to hopelessness
A thousand days and more have passed
And I'm still here
Walled into solitude with dying hope
Such is my need

A perfect vision before me
Engulf my sight, I'm blind
Breath escaped and would not return
Frozen, words take flight

In a moment, I saw it all
Nurturing the seed on my salvation
Countless hours alone, with my need
Each departure, laced with hesitation

A lack of light
Uncertainty
A yearning
Countless moments passed
I needed only one
Forever a ghost

Unspoken
Unseen
Purest devotion
Haunts me
Track Name: Misrecollections
That which was black and white brings tears of grey
Holes torn within the fabric of my world
Spread within thought the growing menace burrows in
Tendrils eat away at what was once my identity

It all started slowly
Little things easily dismissed]
A slip of the mind
Misrecollections

The clouds descend, darkness crawls in, confusion
Chaos takes its hold, I am lost within the prison of my skull
The clouds part, but briefly, I see clear
Snapshots of decline, my world decays, like my mind

That which was black and white brings tears of grey
Holes torn within the fabric of my world
Spread within thought the growing menace burrows in
Tendrils eat away at what was once my identity

My gains ... Forgotten
My dreams ... Forgotten
My friends ... Forgotten
My world ... Forgotten
My past ... Gone forever
My present ... Gone forever
My future ... Gone forever
My soul ... Gone forever
Track Name: Mantra
With every breath, I am nothing.
