Drive 04:57
Midnight drive I'm thinking up lines To romanticize Five years of running away from you I'm dreaming of your eyes Did we ever say goodbye? I'm all alone tonight It's me and this dark sky And I'm dying to say goodnight I know that it's been a long time And you could tell me you're far away But minutes and miles just fall in line Feelings don't easily fade away On those nights when the sky turns a stale shade of gray And you can't remember the light of day Another day's indifferent escape What could I ever say to you? Could I ever find the words to change your mind? Or would it be a waste of time? I'm holding on too tight Underneath bright starlight And I'm dying to say goodnight
The Getaway 04:40
The miles between you and I Are driving me out of my mind Am I still losing touch? Can I miss you this much? Am I wishing? I only wish cold winter miles Would melt like the horizon I want to drive all day and night I want to see the city lights Fade far behind It's not like time ever stands still Despite an unwavering will You can't stop time And I feel like I've been misplaced I wish I could just see your face You know that I hate the unknown And I know you're scared to be alone Some things never change But if you were here right now I'd make you forget fear somehow And turn doubt into abandon
You open your eyes Once again you'll be conscious This half you despise It's weighing on your conscience We're always so cautious And now I wish I lost this But have I gone too far? Far too far to drop it See that change coming You can't, you won't stop it I just need some time to collect myself Son, you'll get none Life is short Enjoy your health We'll be needing your time and your trust Here's your lust Here's your wealth You'll take it and you'll like it You know, it's bringing me down Today I missed the sunlight A blank stare and a frown Can't you tell I know it's not right? Soon I'll leave this Soon I might stop giving into fright I'll take off without notice No, you won't get a warning What happened and where's a helping hand this morning? It won't take long I'll be quickly replaced Someone else to make haste And to pick up the pace And I'll be somewhere else I'll be far from this place I'll have a smile on my face I'm ready to go (Today I missed the sunlight) Cause I won't take much longer (Can't you tell I know it's not right?) Nothing lasts forever (I'll stop giving into fright)
Eclipse 03:19
You rise up in a whisper in the back of my mind You lay in wait there to burglarize Growing strong for I give residence And I know you're wrong but lose my common sense Fruitless compromise I found the key to your demise I can make you disappear If I turn away and close my eyes Wanting much more But aiming for less We always acquiesce To what feels best And though it won't quench you You're a man obsessed This forfeit of reason This sin for a season Grant me the strength to pass this test
Disappear 03:40
The words you write down Occupy space in my mind And I wish they'd disappear I can't be held responsible For your own unresolved actions and feelings in print I'll carve this song in iron And brand it in your skin The fire singeing it in So you'll never forget again I didn't ask for a sign I would have been happy living life blind and sublime Keep it all locked up inside next time or try Try to just recognize The distance remaining in my eyes Feelings lie, reason defeats them every time in time The words you write down Occupy space in my mind
The Answer 05:26
Sifting through sand by the grain Voices always sounding the same You don't resist They're not making much sense anyway You're sure making headway Searching the world far and wide For a philosophy you can buy into That doesn't put holes in your pride Cause you are your own god in your mind They say humanism is the answer to the deepest questions Though only a shallow facade it provides Man created God, I've heard it a hundred times A lie like that can never bring peace of mind They say humanism is the answer to the deepest questions Though only a shallow facade it provides Man created God, a shot in the dark Regeneration in Christ is the path to true light They say humanism is the answer to the deepest questions Though only a shallow facade it provides Man created God, a shot in the dark Regeneration in Christ is the path to true sight
37 04:21
Downfall 03:05
You would never recall my name If I came up to you on the street You'd push your way through the crowd It wasn't always this way And it's not so easy now To remember the past You know it will never last It will never be the same again I'm playing witness to your downfall You're left alone against it all How does it feel to know That when you look into the mirror And look away You'll forget what kind of person you are If it was up to you Would have ended your life Those many years ago On the operating table You would have been remembered always But now you slowly fade away
Dawn 05:46
Would you choose a different path If you knew the direction In which every pathway led? And do you wish you could rewind To take back something that you've done Something that you've said? And would you make a plan For more than five minutes ahead? But how much different would things be? If we could know the outcome of each and every possibility? Or travel back to catch ourselves before we fell? Well I don't know if I can tell Cause I know that knowing all the I know now I still can't seem to bring myself around To step across the cracks I've tripped upon To peel back the sky, acknowledging the dawn of a new day There's no telling what we'll see When we chart the waters Circumventing all of our distractions We'll raise our sails and send our new ship out to sea Then how much different will things be? And though the tides of doubt can be an overpowering force My Captain has the strength to calm the waves He says take the helm and navigate the course And I'll stand beside and guide you to the dawn of a new day
In the End 03:58
This is your only life passing by each day But what could possibly go a different way? How many days have passed without a second thought Without a word of doubt Without a word Without a doubt What if your world came falling down tomorrow? Who would be there to catch you when you fell? We're not assured a breath when we're born into the world What makes us think that we have so much time to waste? When we grow up, we'll buy a house, marry a pretty girl While thousands went to meet their Maker yesterday We may think we know it all but we don't really know Till we trust God to be there in the end Mistakes, I've made my share But I don't look back to see where I've been All I can do is look ahead to find my place in life And pray that I don't come this way again


Our second full length album, this record takes a darker tone with detours into metal, electronica and progressive rock, yet still heavily influenced by pop punk and post hardcore.
