Track Name: This Is Now
You can believe in all that you see.
Do we understand what it truly means to be alive?
Don't choose this path, try to live for tonight
Where I break down and shed skin just to try to make this.

Can we save ourselves? Tell me is there a way out?
Speak the truth, let us escape.

I'm not like you.
Is it worth pretending?

How much are we to take until we've taken on the world?

Can we save ourselves? Tell me is there a way out?
Speak the truth, let us escape.

The words flow from my lips and hit you but do they get through?
All I'm asking is that you listen for once.

I'm not like you.
We can't keep living our lives helpless in times of war.

You'll always throw your weight around but you could never pull it.
I am a ghost, not knowing if I even matter so tell me we don't have to live this way.
There's no room for captivation.
Track Name: Piene Forte Et Dure (More Weight)
This is our road.

This is the road where we're meant to shut down and let out raw emotion.

The weight of stones, they leave me with a bitterness.
They know I'm just as eager to get home.

I'll take this simple world and I'll close the wounds.
You can't expect these scars to just fade away when all I've ever known
is the feeling of neglect inside of a broken home.

All of creation held against me, I'm just a man.
I offer no salvation.
I'm not a hero, I'm just a human being.
What do you see in me?

What do you see in me?
I'm not a hero, I'm just a human being.

All of creation (the weight of stones)
Held against me (they leave me with a bitterness)
I'm just a man
I offer no salvation (they know I'm just as eager to get home)
I'm not a hero (to get home)
I'm just a human being (to get home)
What do you see in me?
Track Name: The Diamond; The Quota
Why must we feel the need to breathe when nothings what it claims to be?
I've tried searching for answers, I've been gasping for breath.
You're trying to take back whats left.
My thoughts are pure but can I cast the first stone?

I knew you.
You think you're in control, you don't have the guts to let go.
I knew you.
I fear I'm here to die alone, I fear I'm here to come and go.

This couldn't happen, I know this can't be happening.

You never noticed me for who I am, for what I tried to be.
Is this what you want?
It's so hard to breathe when you're six foot deep.

If diamonds didn't shine in sunlight, maybe they're just another stone.
Losing a grip on my reality, this evil world is all I know.

I knew you.
You think you're in control, you don't have the guts to let go.
I knew you.
I fear I'm here to die alone, I fear I'm here to come and go.

This couldn't happen, I know this can't be happening.

You never noticed me for who I am, for what I tried to be.
Is this what you want?
It's so hard to breathe when you're six foot deep.
Track Name: We Shall Meet In A Place Where There Is No Darkness
The pressure of not knowing, the price we pay.
We know that everything is out of place.

Faithless existence, there is no time.
Your heart won't beat much longer.

The time will pass.
The cuts will show.
And you'll be taken from me.

Ripped from my grasp, you've given your all.
I wish that I could say the same.

I will not stay in this grave, I will rise because of you.
Pure at heart, I will be the hope in times of famine.
I am your light in times of darkness.

When all has left, your memory has kept me at bay.

The time will pass.
The cuts will show.
And you'll be taken from me.

Your heart won't beat much longer.
Track Name: The Remaining Senses Work Twice As Well
The clouds can keep you from me, but they can't keep me from you.

In the end, we're only left with ourselves.
If you can look in the mirror and stomach what you are. isn't that something?
