Track Name: Transients
We have lost our way
searching through the night
Time will wash away
what we’ve left behind

Something is missing from inside
Something we can’t redesign
Despite everything we’ve tried
we’re still waiting for a sign

We have lost our way
searching through the night
Time will wash away
what we’ve left behind

We can’t help but dwell on the past
but if nothing we created will last...

then we suffered for nothing
We suffered for nothing
We suffered for nothing
We suffered for nothing

We have lost our way
searching through the night
Time will wash away
what we’ve left behind
Track Name: Dark Heart
I think I found a solution
Cause I can see right through your illusion
No one knows, how everything inside you froze
You're so cold, reaching from below

to pull everyone else down with you
Some of us can't resist you
But your strategies play against you
and as for your self-destructive world...

It will be torn apart by your dark heart
Torn apart by your dark heart

Burning out, fade to black
Feel the walls start to crack
Fading out, burning black
Feel your world start to crack
You're fading out and burning black
See your world break in half
You've gone too far to take it back
and when your world starts to crack...

It will be torn apart by your dark heart
Torn apart by your dark heart
Track Name: Serpentine
Spitefully, you lied to me
and I believed your contrived deceit
so I will leave this finally
and try to see what lies beneath the twisted thorns

Withering away, a spirit takes its form
Crumble and decay, where treachery is born

Burn, in lifeless self-defeat
of what you will always be
Forever incomplete
for what you have done to me

Your fangs are in deep
and you haunt me when I sleep
Your fangs are in deep
and they haunt me when I sleep
Your fangs are in deep
and they haunt me when I sleep

Spitefully, you lied to me
and I believed your contrived deceit

But now you will burn, in lifeless self-defeat
of what you will always be
Forever incomplete
for what you have done to me

twisted thorns - intertwined
twisted soul - serpentine
Track Name: Falling Apart
You thought you had it all figured out
until everything came crashing down
The cracks in your resolve gave way to doubt
So you let it go and you let us drown

Is this what it’s come to?
Losing sight of what is right above you
After all we’ve gone through
I see nothing but a shadow of you
And everything is falling apart
It’s falling apart

I feel it coming on, I’m losing my grip
Watching it slip away from my fingertips
And now that we are all going down with the ship
Watch as the bow starts to tip

From the very first time I tried
I was wasting my time
Too blind to see what triggered
our inevitable decline
Our paths were set in stone when you crossed that line
But our choices are still undefined

Is this what it’s come to?
Losing sight of what is right above you
After all we’ve gone through
I see nothing but a shadow of you
And everything is falling apart
Track Name: Vultures
Simple predictable beings
wrapped up in our own routines
separating ourselves from the beasts
A false feeling of superiority
Exerting our authority
We’re all just trying to survive

We are nothing more than animals
hunting for fresh meat
it’s something that’s inside of us all, no matter how deep
Human nature makes us animals
it’s pulling our strings
slaves to these chemical chains, and these chemical dreams

You can try to shut it down
but it only grows stronger
You can try to shut it down
You can try to cut it off
but it comes back stronger

I can’t stop myself
I can’t control myself

We are nothing more than animals
hunting for fresh meat
it’s something that’s inside of us all, no matter how deep
Human nature makes us animals
it’s pulling our strings
slaves to these chemical chains, and these chemical dreams

Helping ourselves in the name of others
Picking at scraps and forgetting our brothers
Helping ourselves in the name of others
Picking at scraps and forgetting our brothers
What's the point?
