Track Name: Solitude
"My path before me,
I'm left estranged,
Those before have come and fallen,
Their bones line the way.

Darkness surrounds me,
Humanity sustained by light,
Life force drained every step.
Filled only by the fire in my heart.

Swarmed by endless forces,
Overcome with fear and dread,
When lights the essence,
On which I am fed.

Each trial tests my strength,
Every victory strengthening my resolve.

As I grow,
As far as I progress,
The evil grows darker,
Humanity sustained by light,
Ignite the way

As I grow,
As far as I progress,
The evil grows darker,
No longer left repressed.

True victory awaits,
After my final death,
Weakness admonished,
The end of my quest.

My life,
Has purpose,
Has meaning,
Preordained for Light,
Prepared for victory.

Break Down,
Everything you see,
Purge the world of it's vile odor,
Erase this atrocity.

Rebuild,
Recreate the city,
Reclaim it's former honor,
Enrich its history.

Break Down,
Everything you see,
Purge the world of it's vile odor,
Erase this atrocity.

Rebuild,
Recreate the city,
Reclaim it's former honor,
Enrich its history."
Track Name: Deresolution (Feat. Zurisadai)
"Poisoned, my mind escapes me.
My thoughts controlled without my intent.
Cycle the empty interaction.
This life a falsification,

A shadow of what it could be.
Force fed the image of perfection,

The line of reality blurred.
My mind erupts in protest.

A flawed utopia, beauty masks the imperfection,
Lost in the vista,

I must escape,
Leave this wicked invention behind,
The path unclear, (the path unclear)

Reverse,
Rewrite all I know,
Destroy the falsity fed to me,
My life anew, sans purgatory.

I must escape,
Leave this wicked invention behind,
The path unclear, (the path unclear)

The world around you is a lie,
Break free, open your eyes,
Don’t look to society, in your heart lies sanctity,
Deresolution."
Track Name: Divergence
“I lose my focus,
My hope is gone,
The foundation I have built,
My memories on.

Torn away,
It falls apart,
My mind enshrouded
by the dark.

My will broken,
As broken as my bones,
I wander this desert,
Looking for a home.

My will broken,
As broken as my bones,
I wander this desert,
Looking for a home.


How do I follow,
A path of brokenness and pain,
Exposed weakness,
Resounds with great power.

My strength leaves me,
My body tires.
I begin to protest,
Resist the urge to fail.

Energy finds me,
Resurging through my worn soul.
Calm amongst this battle,
The thunder deafened by the spirit”
Track Name: Rise
“Engulfed.
Surrounded
The water pulls me down.

Consumed.
Unbounded.
Guidance.
Unfound.

Waves slowly erode.
Foundation withering away.
A storm approaches.
But yet, still I stay.

The anchor,
Tied tightly,
Its roped around my feet.

The water,
Surrounding,
It drowns my humanity.

The water,
Enters,
My lungs,
And drowns my humanity.

In turn,
I’m swallowed,
Further,
Down into the darkened sea.

The tide cycles,
It pulls me out.
Down into the darkened sea.

The soul is gone,
Only body remains,
Down in the darkened sea.”
Track Name: Recovery
“The life we live reflects glory,
Practice what we preach.

We will not live life unnoticed.
We are the chosen few.

Give up your selfish ways,
Be the light in the darkest days.

Addiction slows us down,
Celebrate recovery.

We will stand with open arms,
We will live with open hearts to you.

We won’t ever be forsaken
Your will has been done

One step closer to the heavens,
I won’t abandon you.

Turn the life you live around,
What was lost now is found.

You can do this, and I will guide you.
We can wash away all that you’ve been through.

We will stand with open arms,
We will live with open hearts to you.”
