01. Dead Throne

What you hold dear is a false account.
What you hold dear offers no salvation. (salvation)
Trust in that I’m not right for this. (for this)
Know that I’m not the one to hold you up. (hold you up)
I can’t hold you. I can’t hold you.

Dead throne (dead throne), we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne.
Dead throne (dead throne), we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne.

She will slip... slip away. You will see your downfall.

Dead throne (dead throne), we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne.
Dead throne, we’ve put the world onto a dead throne.

I am guilty, I have fallen: There are things that have come between you and me.
I’m so sorry (I’m so sorry): Let all be put to shame who serve carved images.

We’ve put the world on a dead throne. We’ve put the world on a dead throne.
 
 
02. Untidaled

Back for the fourth time around and still meaning every word.
Never more honest, always too tired.
Drowning in the pages I’ve planned: Provoke, destroy. Provoke, destroy.
I could be the lost cause, for I am dead poetry.
In this reflection, we are perfect disorder.

Bring back balance, bring restoration. I saw the waves again, I felt the impact.
I saw the waves again, I watched the current sway us.
Bring back balance, bring restoration. Go....

Lost in the clouds and my heart is sleeping. Within the tide, although my eyes are dying.

Back for the fourth time around and still meaning every word. (every word)
Never more blatant, always too thoughtful. If I could change things, I’d change myself.

Time to be joyful in no consistency. Faith can be our only regularity.
Time to be joyful in no monotony. There are no final goodbyes, this is our certainty.

Bring back balance, bring restoration. I saw the waves again, I felt the impact.
I saw the waves again, I watched the current sway us.
Bring back balance, bring restoration.

And just like that my life ceased to be.

If I could change things, I’d change myself: Sunk to the bottom of a deaf, lifeless world.
 
 
03. Mammoth

I won’t let this ruin me.

My orchestra, my indecision: It all comes back full circle (from grace to all my hate).
I never meant to hurt anyone. (anyone) I came for peace, and for great reason.
There is no solace, there’s no alleviation in all our money, or within her golden teeth.

Is this it? Is this how it goes? I am the wretched one, I am the beggar’s hands.
It comes back full circle. I cannot help but feel nothing.

Pick it up... Oh...
Such a bitter friend, change can be.
Remind me God, refresh what’s turned to grey.
Oh my intentions, you vanish with the wind.

Is this it? Is this how it goes? I am the wretched one, I am the harlot’s bones.
It comes back full circle. I cannot help but care no more.
Is this it, is this how it goes? It all comes back full circle.
It comes back full circle. I cannot help but feel nothing.

All that you know... I am all that you know.

He had a vision as to what comes next, so disregard this unholy place.
 
 
04. Vengeance

You are a sickness: My only sincere plague.
Is this what you’ve worked for? Running your false empire to the ground.
What is this substance that made your very own morals change?

It’s gone a little too far to turn back now. (turn back now) It’s gone a little too far to turn back.
Always running I am the outcast. Keep running, keep running away.

On to the next one, how can you have no shame?
Gone (gone) is your reason, think of from where you came. (where you came)
God as my witness, there will be no love lost.

This is my vengeance: From here on out it’s no regrets.
You are my sickness: I gave it all my very best.
This is my vengeance: From here on out it’s no regrets.
You are my sickness: I gave it all my very best. (my very best)

It’s gone a little too far to turn back now. (turn back now)
It’s gone a little too far to turn back. Always running I am the outcast.
It’s gone a little too far to turn back now. (it’s gone a little too far) (turn back now)
It’s gone a little too far to turn back. Always running I am the outcast.
Keep running, keep running away.

On to the next one, driven by what you gain. Broken honor, you came and you went.

We’re just another crack in the wall, here with no love lost. (no love lost)
 
 
05. R.I.T.

Turn your back now: Lose yourself in hesitation.
Dancing, dancing, always dancing, and staring at the floor.
The sun came out just long enough to go down. Oh....

She shows the symptoms of being my suicide.
I’m holding you to blame for this. I won’t stop selling myself short.
The broken windows: All of the glass. Knife in my hand: The questions I’ve asked.
I dream about her more nights than not. I can’t drown this away. (I can’t drown this away)

With every single move that you make, you come closer to breaking me.
With every single breath that I take, you push further from helping me (but you can’t, you can’t).
I’m pulling the weight again. With every single move that you make, I come closer to ending me.

I blame myself, and it’s not the first time. You see me for what I am: Damaged.
Turn your back now: I will bask in the blackness of my darkest days. Yeah....

With every single move that you make, you come closer to breaking me.
With every single breath that I take, you push further from helping me
(but you can’t, you can’t, you can’t, you can’t).
I’m pulling the weight again. With every single move that you make,
I come closer to ending me. Self-loathing me.
 
 
06. My Questions

Something has got to give. Ya....
When did I start choking? When did I start drowning?
Is this what’s to become? All thoughts left to wait.
Is this what’s to become? Is this...

My questions (my questions): Unanswered (unanswered).
I wish... I wish this would break. I wish this would break.

What am I doing here? These waters extend for miles. Oh....
My heart remains the same. Ya....
Will I ever, ever stop choking? Will I ever, ever stop drowning?
Oh how the faithful city has become a harlot. I should not have put that on you.
Leave my body at the river, let me pass along downstream. Oh....

Is this what’s to become?
My questions (my questions): Unanswered (unanswered).
I wish... I wish this would break. I wish this would break.
My questions: Unanswered. I wish this would break.
I wish this would break. I wish this would break.
I breathe in your shadows and sleep in your disinterest.
I breathe in your shadows and sleep in your disinterest.
Let the tears fall, let me write some sad songs that you don’t deserve, that you don’t deserve.
Let the tears fall. Will I ever, ever stop choking? Will I ever, ever stop drowning?
 
 
07. Kansas

(Instrumental)

 
 

08. Born to Lose

Blessed be those who have no idols. (no idols) Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient.
I don’t see the world the same. I’m no one’s hero, so just forget my name.

I abhor you, with every foolish thing that you say.
None of it is worth the time: Another meaningless war.

You don’t know what you need. We’re all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems.
You don’t know what you need. We make the same mistakes, we’ve ruined everything.

What is it this time? What must you call holy? This is your lifeline, nothing is as it seems.
If I were you I’d give it up. (I’d give it up. I’d give it up) If I were you I’d care. (I would care)
I’m born to lose with a noose around my neck. World be damned and move forward. (forward)

I abhor you, with every selfish thing that you say. None of it is worth the time.

You don’t know what you need. We’re all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems.
You don’t know what you need. We make the same mistakes, we’ve ruined everything.

Born to lose, born to lose, born to lose, with a noose around my neck.

 

 

09. Forever Decay

Still broken. I can’t see anything but you. I don’t even know if I want to.

I’ve been so wrong in this. What does this mean? Where did it go? All is best, all is lost.
What does this mean? Where did it go? All is best, all is lost, all is gone.

Forever in ruin, I can’t just disappear. Forever in ruin, I can’t let go.
Forever in ruin, forever decay. I can’t see anything but you. I can’t let this go.

Still searching. I might be missing you for years (for years).
Every month feels like a lifetime. When will this pass?
Goodnight, farewell, I’m nearly done with this day.
Goodnight, farewell, our grace has met its end.

Forever in ruin, forever decay.
She fell in love with the city, and since then I don’t mean anything.
She fell in love with the city, and since then I don’t mean anything.
Forever in ruin, forever decay. Forever in ruin, forever decay.

I’ve been so wrong in this. What does this mean? (What does this mean?)
Where did it go? (Where did it go?) All is best, all is lost.
What does this mean? Where did it go? All is best, all is lost, all is gone.
Forever in ruin, I can’t just disappear. Forever in ruin, I can’t let go.
Forever in ruin, forever decay. I can’t see anything but you.

 

 

10. Chicago

In this grave hour, I have composed our final song:
The last words of our love lost. (of our love lost)

I called your hands home for years, for years, for years, for years on end.
It’s become distant and I hate my helpless defiance. No....

You have no problem finding me, although you only commit unintentionally. (unintentionally)

I do it for the Lord, I do it for Chicago.
I once lived for you, and I’ve never ever been
so wrong (wrong), wrong, so wrong (wrong), wrong.

We keep building, building to find no release.

 

 

11. Constance
(feat. guest vocals by Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying / Austrian Death Machine)

Oh....
What has exhaustion brought me?
Unvisited, but still too busy to close my eyes. (to close my eyes)

Maybe one day I’ll grasp the pattern, maybe in time this will all be readable. Maybe in time. (time)

As if the solitude could bring me any peace, I was greeted with constance, I found no sleep.

These thoughts are nothing but wished away. I can’t remember what it is to be content.
These thoughts are nothing but wished away. (but wished away)
I can’t remember what it is to be content. Eeah....

Show me the exit: Let the signals fade. Maybe one day I’ll defeat the cycle,
maybe (maybe) in time (in time) I’ll be able to define this... this wretched purgatory (purgatory).

As if the solitude could bring me any peace, I was greeted with constance, I found no sleep.

These thoughts are nothing but wished away. I can’t remember what it is to be content.
These thoughts are nothing (these thoughts are nothing) but wished away (but wished away).
I can’t remember what it is to be content. This is bound to fail. This is bound to fail.

Go ahead....

Tim Lambesis:
The enemy will not resist, deceived until the end.
I hate this persistence, my eyes may never close.
I hate this persistence, my eyes may never close.

 

 

12. Pretenders

Never have I been so disgusted, never has it all been so clear to me. Ya....

Watch out for pretenders.

No one of any positive reputation will respect what you’ve done.
Judgment will befall your rule, the wrath will break your law.
Harshness will have His place on this. You fake, you were meant to fall down.

Stop (stop), restart (restart). Baah.... Watch out for pretenders.
Obtain perspective, re-evaluate your inception. Endless imitation, obvious plagiarism.

I know how you function (I know how you function):
There will be an end to your profit, your possession.
How did it all become... become published? How can no one see these things?
How can no one see these things? You fake, you were meant to fall.
How can no one see these things? You fake, you were meant to fall down.
How can no.... How can no one.... You fake, you were meant to fall down.

And now the record went gold, but not an ounce of sincerity was achieved.
I know how you function (I know how you function):
There will be an end to your profit, your possession.
How did it all become... become published?
How can no one see... see these things?

Stop, restart. Stop, restart.

 

 

13. Holdfast

We will not be forgotten: Holdfast. Holdfast.

I will never subject myself to the flames.
You are a demon to me, your power is but a fraction of me. (but a fraction of me)
And with that I... I make progress, within each step I move.

Save me, for the waters have come up to my neck. (come up to my neck) We will not be forgotten.
Glory to the patient and to those who have hope. (to those who have hope) We will not be forgotten.

Studying photos and deleting pictures.
With bleeding clouds ahead we pray for boldness,
we pray for boldness, we pray for undying grace.

Save me, for the waters have come up to my neck. (come up to my neck) We will not be forgotten.
Glory to the patient and to those who have hope. (to those who have hope) We will not be forgotten.

No... I don’t plan on going anywhere without you. Holdfast. Holdfast. Holdfast.
My body was meant to rot, but these words will never pass.
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, for these words will never pass.

Save me. Save me. Save me. We will not be forgotten.
Save me. We will not be forgotten. Holdfast. Holdfast.
Save me. We will not be forgotten. We will not be forgotten.
Save me. We will not be forgotten. Holdfast...
